Charlie Woods gives first interview after firing 68 at Notah Begay qualifying event

Published

on

Over the weekend, Charlie Woods participated in the Notah Begay III Junior National Golf Championship at Mission Inn Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida.

With his dad on his bag, Charlie did not disappoint.

Charlie finished tied for fourth in the Boys 12-13 division thanks to a career low four-under 68.

After his round, Charlie gave an interview and in the process gave a lot of credit to the fifteen-time major champion helping him out throughout the event.

“Dad told me to stay patient. I just played steady golf,” Charlie said.

I’m sure we will hear a lot more of the name “Charlie Woods” in the coming years.

Greg Norman outlines very bold plan over 2023 LIV Golf signings

Published

on

With the inaugural season of LIV Golf in the books, CEO Greg Norman has shifted his attention to 2023.

While speaking to the press, “The Shark” stated that one current priority is to secure more high-end talent for the upcoming LIV Golf season.

“Basically, we’re looking for maybe seven players, something like that.”

When he was asked: “We’re talking Top 10, Top 20 players?” Norman replied:

“Yes. You said both. So, I said yes.”

Earlier this week, it was speculated in a report from The Guardian that PGA Tour stars Xander Schauffele and Patrick Cantlay could be amongst those moving to LIV for next season.

While Norman didn’t give any names, he made it clear that he thinks players have plenty of incentive to “be liberated” and join LIV.

“Quite honestly, the players on the outside looking in to see what’s happening with LIV today, these guys still talk to each other, right? The ones on LIV feel like they have been liberated. There are players on the PGA Tour that we’re speaking to today that want to be liberated.”

The CEO also said that most of the field from last year will be back once again in 2023.

“The percentage of players that will come back probably – doing quick math – 85 to 90% of the players, I would say.”

Next season, the LIV Golf schedule will expand to fourteen tournaments and the total prize money will expand to $405 million.

Both Greg Norman and LIV president Atul Khosla have spoken in the past week of the importance of getting a U.S. television deal and securing sponsors for the league prior to season two getting underway.

Ian Poulter makes plea to Elon Musk after Twitter takeover

Published

on

All change at Twitter Towers after Elon Musk’s multi-billion dollar takeover.

After several months of negotiation, the richest man in the world finally bought the social media site at the end of October, because “buying Twitter is an accelerant to creating X, the everything app.” Yeah, your guess is as good as mine.

Musk got to work with immediate effect. He and his team sacked some of the existing top-level management personnel, and his latest move is to modify the ‘blue tick’, the award given to users who, according to the old site at least, must be ‘authentic, noble and active”.

The ‘everything’ of Tesla and SpaceX now wants to charge an $8 monthly fee to go blue, a move that hasn’t gone down well, with The New Statesman claiming it would be a “disaster.”

One of those in total disagreement with the view of the respected political publication is Ian Poulter, a frequent poster on Twitter and a player that has used the social media site to argue his case for LIV Golf, as he did a few weeks ago when involved in an ugly spat with Eddie Pepperell.

The 46-year-old has recently been noticed fighting back against anonymous trolls on social media and welcomes any move by Musk to remove these from his feed.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Ryder Cup star posted:

The 46-year-old recently finished 29th on the end-of-season LIV rankings, earning just over $3million in combined individual and team earnings.

Poults’ latest effort for the Majesticks GC team was as first-time captain, a move made so he could play in any singles matches instead of Lee Westwood – a tactical decision tailor-made for a man with a Ryder Cup singles record of six wins and one half from seven matches.

Away from the course, Poulter will be happy with the way Twitter is facing up to the “hateful conduct” on the site. And for that, we should all be grateful.

Patrick Reed launches yet another defamation lawsuit against golf media

Published

on

Patrick Reed has filed yet another lawsuit against members of the media for ‘defamation, injurious falsehood and tortious interference.’

This particular lawsuit is against Shane Ryan of Golf Digest, Hachette, the New York Post, Fox Sports, Doug Ferguson and the Associated Press. These defendants have been named as co-conspirators in the claim along with the PGA Tour, NBC’s Golf Channel, Brandel Chamblee, Damon Hack, Shane Bacon, Eamon Lynch, Golf Week, Gannett and others.

The new lawsuit alleges that the defendants have spread “malicious false allegations, all of which were designed to severely harm Reed, his family and colleagues personally and professionally. Reed is a former member of the PGA Tour, Masters Champion, among many other victories, accolades, and awards by the young age of 32.”

The lawsuit highlights Shane Ryan as “one of the earliest and perhaps the most hateful and unhinged of the defendants to defame, falsely injure and tortiously interfere with Mr. Reed, his family, and his colleagues”.

Shane Ryan wrote the book, “Slaying the Tiger: A Year Inside the Ropes on the New PGA Tour,” and recently released his newest nook, “The Cup They Couldn’t Lose: America, The Ryder Cup, and The Long Road to Whistling Straits,” which Reed’s team alleges “compounds and republishes the alleged false and very damaging attacks.”

The complaint alleges that Ryan is “pathologically obsessed with harming Mr. Reed and his family and colleagues, and given his well-known incestuous relationship with those on the PGA Tour” and that “his latest book is part and parcel to the deluge of defamatory statements that have been published not just by the Defendants in this case, but also regurgitated with actual malice by Brandel Chamblee, Damon Hack, Shane Bacon and Eamon Lynch, commentators on NBC’s Golf Channel, which according to PGA Commissioner Jay Monahan is the PGA Tour’s partner. Chamblee, and the others are Defendants in a related suit styled Reed v. Chamblee, also filed in federal court in Jacksonville, Florida”

Reed’s attorney, Larry Klayman, spoke after filing the lawsuit on his client’s behalf.

“My client, his family and colleagues have been made the whipping boy of cheap and dishonest journalists in the golf media, like Shane Ryan, who feed at the trough of the PGA Tour, a tour that historically mistreated Mr. Reed. Indeed, my client’s move to LIV Golf was primarily due to this mistreatment, where adequate security was not even provided at PGA Tour events, where hostile fans vilified and threatened Mr. Reed, his wife, caddie, and coach, thanks to the rank defamation and other alleged illegal acts of Defendants in these two recently filed lawsuits.”

“Mr. Reed, on behalf of himself, his family, and colleagues, simply will not take it anymore and he is fighting back in the courts to not just redeem his rightful reputation for honesty and superior golf achievements and successes, but also to protect his loved ones from the likes of Shane Ryan, Doug Ferguson and the rest of the jackals who make their sorry and pathetic living spreading lies and false information about him. These types of journalists, publishers and networks give the good ones a bad name, by publishing and broadcasting false information to the masses for their own financial gain to generate readers, viewership, clicks, and for no other reason than to use Mr. Reed callously and cruelly as a tool to make money, no matter how harmful it has been or will be to his career, his family, colleagues and his life.”

“Let it be known that anyone who emulates Shane Ryan and the other defendants in these two lawsuits, in order to make a cheap profit and harm Mr. Reed, his family, and colleagues, will be held accountable under the letter of the law.”
