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.

    Cam Smith has less class than what is Rory’s toenail – the Little toe’s nail. Just enjoy your money and get the heck out of our lives, Cam. Sayonara.

    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.

    I am sick of Rory whining and complaining about the LIV players when in fact he did the same damn thing years ago to the European tour. He left there for the PGA because the MONEY was better. So, how is Rory any different.

    Also, why would Tiger and Rory think watching them play golf on a simulated screen is worth anything? They are definitely grasping and that is the dumbest thing I ever heard of. Golf is played on the course not on some simulated golf course.

      It seems like someone has a problem to understand that ppgolf is work for a lot of people, with every week travel and not seeing a family for few weeks in a row. And that someone has a problem that some of the guys are getting paid more and have a better work/life balance. You should say nothing in public against that.

‘F*****g hell! That was a low point’ – Rory McIlroy on 2021 matchplay loss to LIV defector

Published

on

The 2022 season was an excellent campaign for Rory McIlroy as we saw him rise to once again become the world’s No. 1 player.

The four-time major champion came away with his third Tour Championship victory, a win at the RBC Canadian Open, and another victory at the CJ Cup in October. While he didn’t secure the major championship he’s been coveting since 2014, Rory finished third at The Open, second at the Masters, fifth at the U.S. Open, and eighth at the PGA Championship.

His year full of strong finishes is also backed up by the statistics. McIlroy was the best player for the 2022 season in terms of strokes gained: total.

Prior to his impressive 2022 calendar year, McIlroy struggled in 2021 golf season. Rory recently sat down with Paul Kimmage of the Irish Independent to discuss some of the low points he’s had prior to his reclaiming of the top spot on the OWGR. As we’ve grown accustomed to with McIlroy, he was candid and thoughtful in the interview.

After a U.S. Open victory by Bryson DeChambeau in 2020, McIlroy decided it was time to chase more distance. This led to swing changes and difficulties to what eventually led him to his “rock bottom” which he identifies as the 2021 Ryder Cup. He was also beaten 6&5 by Ian Poulter at the 2021 Dell WGC Match Play.

“Yeah, I was beaten by Poulter. F*****g hell! That was a low point.”

Then there was the 2021 PGA Championship at Kiawah Island, where Rory had won by eight shots back in 2012.

“Kiawah was the perfect example of where my game was; I’d won the PGA there in 2012 by eight shots, but we got there, and I said to Harry: “I don’t remember this course being so difficult.”

The swing changes turned out to be completely unnecessary but having witnessed other players go through them throughout their career, McIlroy was simply doing what he thought was best at the time.

“I’d seen other people do it and thought, at that stage of my career, it was what I needed. It was a difficult summer, but I was having what most people would call a decent year and was starting to think of it that way instead of, ‘It’s decent for most but it’s not good enough for me.’ And I almost needed to hit rock bottom at the Ryder Cup to snap out of it.”

McIlroy enters 2023 as arguably the best player in the world once again and seems primed to make a run at another major championship that he desperately needs. At 33 years old, there’s still plenty of time for the former prodigy to live up to the lofty expectations the golf world once had of him in regard to major championship victories, but it’s time to get going.

Justin Thomas makes surprising Thanksgiving U-Turn

Published

on

Justin Thomas, set to tee it up as part of the select 20 at the Hero World Challenge, has admitted he might have been wrong about Thanksgiving dinner.

The former world No. 1 and winner of the 2022 PGA Championship will look to finish higher than his best-of-event fifth place and secure some momentum towards the 2023 season. With that, the 29-year-old can reach some of the ambitious targets he sets himself each year — falling short of just a few in 2022.

Perhaps more suited to the relaxed, light-hearted nature of Tigers’s invitational, plus the upcoming Match VII and PNC Championship, JT called himself out on a three-year-old tweet about the traditional meal.

Replies were massively in favor of rejecting the turkey, with one response being:

“JT, we do steaks in our house with all the traditional Thanksgiving sides and pies…you can do it…you just gotta make the choice to go for it…don’t lay-up from 200 yds on the par 5,” whilst renown golf story-teller, Ryan French, also agreed with the two-time major winner:

I’m not sure what the poor turkey has done. If done well, it rivals chicken, but JT isn’t having it, politely calling it:

If anything, at least we know what will never be on his Masters champions dinner menu.

2 Phil Mickelson putters go up for auction…and Phil authenticates them on video

Published

on

Last week, we reported on the start of an auction on for one of Tiger Woods’ famous Sunday red shirts.

By Sunday evening, November 27th, there had been 19 bids on the shirt worn during the final round of The Masters 2010, with the current leading offer being $44,771.00. With 13 days left, auction house, Golden Age, will expect bids to reach well in advance of $50k, by some way the biggest price for any of the current ‘Tiger’ memorabilia on the site.

It might have been a good few years since the famed years of the Woods/Phil Mickelson rivalry, but Lefty can’t keep out of the news that his great rival makes, and he too has authenticated some iconic golfing gear – a pair of Scotty Cameron putters.

The first is a handmade Cameron putter that Golden Age can authenticate with photographic evidence.

“We have located loads of photos of Phil Mickelson using this exact putter during that 2002 GHO victory, as well as in the Open Championship, PGA Championship, and Ryder Cup,” the auction house confirms.

“This custom putter is a left handed red dot Circle T Scotty Cameron,” they state, before describing the flat-stick in full. “It has a teryllium face that Scotty Cameron himself personally inserted into this putter. The toe is hand-stamped PHIL.”

Photo-matching is great, but in an era when many are cynical about the provenance of auction items, it is hard to beat video evidence from the player himself.

In the video, Lefty states that, “They were both handmade by Scotty and I used them in the early 2000s. I definitely won with one for sure,” before confirming, “They were handmade by Scotty and myself around 2001.”
