Cam Smith enjoys meme poking fun at Rory McIlroy at latest LIV event

Published

on

The LIV Golf Series continues this week in Chicago, where the Champion Golfer of the Year Cam Smith will make his second start.

The Australian’s move to LIV has been one of the biggest stories of 2022, with Smith reportedly signing a deal worth north of $100 million with the breakaway tour.

Ahead of this week’s event in Chicago, Smith was shown a meme by the DrunkByTheTurn team, with the Aussie seemingly entertained, laughing at its content alongside fellow pro Pat Perez.

As revealed by the DrunkByTheTurn Twitter account, the meme in question was poking fun at LIV’s biggest critic Rory McIlroy.

McIlroy has continuously criticized both the LIV Golf Series and its defectors, just this week saying that he believes no LIV player should be a part of the 2023 Ryder Cup.

    Hey Rory, I really like you as a player & a person and I wish you the best, but spend a more time practicing, especially putting, instead of worrying about LIV.

          Don’t be mad, Tom, I mean Greg. The Bonesaw Tour is a weak, walking skeleton with a soulless fickle following.

‘What the f**k, guys!?’ – Fan video shows Bryson fuming after walking face first into gallery rope

Published

on

If there is one thing you can depend on when watching Bryson DeChambeau play golf, it’s drama.

During the final round of LIV Chicago, DeChambeau walked into the rope that separates the gallery from the course, and his reaction was over the top.

In the video, it’s unclear what makes Bryson walk into the rope, but he evidently believed it was someone’s fault as he proclaimed, “What the f**k guys?” when it hit him.

When a fan asked if DeChambeau was OK, he replied, “No! I can’t see out of my right eye right now.”

When he was offered a towel, he angrily snatched it from the employee’s hand and yelled, “sh**!”

Thankfully, the former U.S. Open champion was able to shake it off and finish his round.

DeChambeau finished at 6 under, which was good for a top-10 finish in the event.

‘They’re treated like human beings’ – Brooks Koepka takes wild swipe at PGA Tour while talking up LIV

Published

on

One of the main positives to come from the LIV Golf series is the treatment of the player’s most important club, the bagman.

According to an interview in July, with an anonymous DP World Tour caddie, Golf Monthly reported, “There is something wrong with you if you don’t want to work for LIV,” whilst a couple of weeks ago we detailed the expected earnings of the caddies at any LIV event.

After Louis Oosthuizen finished 10th at the inaugural tournament, at Centurion Club, his caddie Colin Byrne commented, it “has been ‘what can we do for you’ all week. They want to help us and make us happy. It’s been great to be included like this. We’ve been pampered and had nothing but a red-carpet treatment.”

Now, talking to the media after his second round in Chicago, Brooks Koepka continued to eulogize about the Greg Norman-led series, referencing one of its main taglines, “It’s energized. I mean, it’s golf, but louder, right?” before continuing the looper theme.

Asked how the LIV series compares to the PGA Tour, the four-time major champion was at pains to be yet another to support the way the new tour treats their bagmen.

“I think the players, the caddies, just how well the caddies are treated, as well. I think that’s a big difference. They’re treated like human beings. I think everybody, through coaches, staff, everybody, it’s a big difference.”

It’s been just eight months since Joel Dahmen’s caddie, Geno Bonnalie, revealed the less glamorous side of the game, with four caddies sharing an over-expensive room at Pebble Beach.

Times, they might be a’changing.

Cam Smith awkwardly bats off question taunting Rory McIlroy at LIV presser

Published

on

When Cam Smith won the 150th Open Championship, he had the gallery chuckle during his winner’s press conference when wondering how many beers would fit inside the Claret Jug.

Not long after, he revealed all!

Not all pressers are the same, though, and with LIV Golf, we should always expect the unexpected.

Tensions between the Greg Norman-led tour and the traditional PGA and DP World Tours are at a height, with the PGA issuing an enhanced set of tournaments, more guaranteed pay and rewards for loyalty.

LIV doesn’t seem fussed, doing its own thing, and continuing to broadcast social media images of boat parties, raucous crowds, and strange press conferences.

Players from both sides are not afraid to have their say, with FedEx Cup champion and current world number two Rory McIlroy, being one of the most vociferous at every opportunity, defending the PGA and DP tours to the hilt.

Many pages have been written on the views from Billy Horschel, Jon Rahm and McIlroy amongst others, whilst LIV competitors are also well represented, with Pat Perez and Patrick Reed amongst those continuing to rally the LIV cause.

On Saturday, LIV again showed its intention to be far more relaxed than we might usually expect, with a press conference comprising Matthew Wolff, Phil Mickelson, and the Open champion.

Golf content provider @DrunkByTheTurn_ had the gallery in stitches and the players slightly dumbfounded when referencing Smith’s post-Open victory comment, “I’m definitely going to find out how many beers fit in this thing (the Claret Jug).”

Akili Johnson, who runs the social media account, started by mentioning the answer to the above question, something the Australian revealed on his Instagram account, before asking:

“..um…I just wanna know how many of Rory McIlroy’s tears were you able to fit in it after you won?”

Whether referring to the current golf spat, or that Smith had come from four behind McIlroy on the final day to nab the richly desired trophy, the Aussie was not biting.

He closed with,

“I’m not answering.”
