PGA Tour pro rips Sergio Garcia over trip to Texas college game following Wentworth WD

Published

on

Having made it abundantly clear that he was ready to fight for the chance to play DP World Tour events, Sergio Garcia withdrew from the tour’s flagship event at Wentworth without giving a reason.

After shooting an opening-round 76 on Thursday, Garcia wasn’t sticking around for the remainder of the event, and when the tournament restarted on Saturday, the Spaniard had already made his way to Texas.

On Saturday, Garcia and his wife were spotted alongside Longhorns alum Scottie Scheffler and his wife at the Texas-Alabama football game.

Unsurprisingly, the 42-year-old’s decision to withdraw after one round without citing a reason only to be then spotted relaxing at a college football game didn’t sit well with everyone. Sky Sports Journalist James Weir tweeted:

“Jon Rahm told me on Tuesday it was particularly personal for him that certain players were in the field this week as his good friend Alfredo García-Heredia was first reserve. Had Sergio García withdrawn before his opening round rather than after it, AGH would have played.”

While responding to a tweet from No Laying Up, who were summarizing the performance of LIV pros at Wentworth, Byeong Hun An did not hold back with his thoughts on the withdrawal from Sergio.

      Wahhh Bob the crybaby. Sergio is a douche, no doubt about that. But his wife is smoking and way better than any of the creatures you’ve probably ever had a talk to. You spend so much time in these comments on things you say you don’t like or care for that I’m completely convinced you actually love every last thing about LIV. What else would you complain and continue with your internet tough-guy act about if LIV didn’t exist?

    The stories coming out of the PGA regarding LIV or other golfers is looking more akin to the Kardashians than sport. These stories are a huge turnoff and it may be time to exit another social media platform. Boring stuff guys.

      Agree. The PGA protests like the illegal monopoly they are.
      They’ve been such di-cks, they moved me into cheering LIV at every turn.

    Americans need no excuse to hit out at a successful former adversary. Am I wrong, has Sergio garnered more Ryder Cup points off Uncle Sam than any other player alive or dead? Yes, he’s petulant; yes, he’s perennially a child; and yes, he’s really only interested in money. So, for that matter, are most of the world top 100. They’re all money-grabbing hypocrites, whichever side of the fence they’re on. Look forward to LIV getting a proper lawyer on board rather than the clown who batted for them in California. And, by the way, where did all that new money on the PGA Tour come from? Copyright, Phil Mickelson. As for the media coverage, you (PGA Tour) pay for all those meals, drinks, hotel rooms, air tickets, transfers, wi-fi installations, etc, so you’ve got to expect something in return. Well played chaps, Fourth Estate at its most venal.

    When did the PGA turn into the crybaby league?

    • Southie Chris

      Sep 12, 2022 at 12:27 pm

      It’s recently been the silver spoon, drink tea with your pinky up, and wear 50k watches loser league.. Can’t think of a single current player in the PGA that went thru school of hard knocks. They all went to the best schools, and had the best coaching, etc…. Is what it is, but these tards talking need to zip the yap.

Report: LIV win battle for world ranking points thanks to ‘strategic alliance’ with minor tour

Published

on

According to the Telegraph, LIV Golf has found a path to securing OWGR points.

The report indicates that LIV is forming a “strategic alliance” with the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) Tour. In theory, this would allow the players to earn world ranking points starting this week at LIV Bangkok.

In turn, the alliance with LIV will give the struggling MENA Tour a path to relevance. The current OWGR rule indicates that a tour must have the majority of it’s events with a cut. It would seem that the LIV events will be the in the minority of events plays, with the regular MENA Tour events starting to ramp back up after LIV Bangkok.

“No Laying Up” holds the opinion that this move by LIV won’t grant them OWGR points right away.

The OWGR has not released a statement as of yet regarding this turn of events.

Analyst and close friend says Tiger ‘might surprise everybody’ this fall

Published

on

There has been plenty of negative speculation regarding Tiger Woods ability to play competitive golf in the future. It was viewed as a troubling sign that Woods wasn’t able to attend to Presidents Cup due to “physical limitations” and instead had to conference with American team captain Davis Love III over the phone.

Then, it was rumored that he “didn’t look right” while caddying for his son Charlie at a tournament.

However, there seems to be a glimmer of hope for Tiger fans as his good friend Notah Begay III just speculated that Woods may “surprise everybody” while on SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio.

When asked the next time we will see the 15-time major champion play. Begay said:

“I’m fairly certain it’s going to be at the PNC [Championship] with Charlie. Charlie’s starting to play a few more events – he played in one of my junior golf tour events last weekend, which was great to see him shoot his career-low round 68 with Tiger on the bag so that was kind of cool to be able to see that.”

More importantly, Begay said that Tiger is still looking for ways to improve the condition of his leg.

“Tiger’s just steadily trying to find ways to get a little bit more stability in his leg,” he said. “It was really presenting some major challenges at St. Andrews. I had a chance to talk with him during the round out there and it’s just constant discomfort so it’s hard to focus on golf, which is hard enough, much less having to deal with the literal pain of your leg aching throughout the day.

“I know that as soon as he feels like he can be competitive because I think he got a good taste of what it’s going to take this past year, we’ll see him. We might see him one time this fall, he might surprise everybody.”

Golf mad parents name newborn child after a golf club

Published

on

Last week we reported on a golf obsessed couple, and their Masters themed wedding. Cute it may have been, but there was something a little over the top about it.

If you think it couldn’t get worse, how about naming your newborn child after a golf club and dressing his hospital bed with golf bedding?

Social media site reddit.com yesterday hosted a photo taken by user ‘jellybloom17’ and caused an obvious reaction.

Welcome to the world, Driver. I know there is a joke here and I know what it is. You make it tho. And go! from golf

Yep, the parents swaddled the baby in a golf-themed blanket and photographed him on a duvet, with the name ‘Driver’ plastered in giant letters.

Reddit users were confused and astounded, with one claiming that:

“I wasn’t sure what the green blob in front of the car was,” before realising, ” it was a golf course.”

“They didn’t name him after a person who operates a motor vehicle. They named him after a golf club!”

Hence the title of the original post – “Welcome to the world, Driver.”

Others questioned the naming, whilst there were doubts if the child grows up not to enjoy the sport:

“What if he grows up and hates golf?” was one comment, whilst another poster concluded, “Probably should not name your kids after sports.”

Either way, it would be good to hear what siblings Nineiron, Wedge and Teepeg say on the matter.
