Harry Styles has a smoother golf swing than you could ever imagine

Published

on

From British X-Factor loser to megastar in around 10 years, Harry Styles’ early career isn’t dissimilar to many a golfer that initially missed the big time, only to return to the top league some years later.

Rejected from the show as a solo artist, Simon Cowell brought him back as part of a boy band, who then became the winners of multiple awards and the only group in the 58-year history of the Billboard album chart to have their first four albums chart at number one.

While bandmate Niall Horan has formed one of the best golf agencies in European sport,  with signings such as Tyrrell Hatton, Leona Maguire and two-time 2022 winner Ewen Ferguson, Styles has been seen more as a fashion icon.

Still, very occasionally fashion mixes well with golf, and the 28-year-old musician and actor was recently seen striping a fade on the course in Chicago, looking a bit like Tom Watson circa 1970-something.

In the past, Styles has been quoted as saying golf is his way of relaxing and, given his fame, is already comfortable with hoards of cameramen following every move.

As one reply to the tweet points out, “Even his Golf Swing Is Mick Jagger’s.”

    Does anyone expect anything different from Golfwrx? Golfwrx is nothing more than liberal trash. Just like Styles.

      Definitely nothing but liberal trash here. People talk crap on Trump all the time in the forums and get away with it, but say anything even remotely negative about Biden and you’re banned. WRX really sucks now. They’ve been infiltrated by the left.

Bubba Watson says that he will beg Jay Monahan to play in this PGA Tour event

Published

on

Bubba Watson, who joined LIV Golf last year, is still hoping he can play in a PGA Tour event.

The two-time major champion plans to “beg” PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan to allow Watson and his son to play in next year’s PNC Championship, which is an event that consists of a father/son or father/daughter tandem with one professional on each team.

“My son, like I said, he doesn’t play golf, but now his whole goal was – I’ll put this out there, his whole goal was to play in the PNC, which is the parent-junior, and now I’m not allowed to play in it. As soon as I see Jay Monahan – if Jay Monahan is watching this, I’ll see you at Augusta and I’ll try to beg you to let us play the PNC again.”

Watson and the other LIV golfers who were previously exempt or top-50 in the world will still get a chance to compete in this year Masters Tournament, to which Bubba is grateful.

“I was very thankful that we get to go back to the Masters. Then LIV announced their schedule, so I won’t be able to go to the women’s tournament or the Drive, Chip & Putt with the kids because we’ll be in Orlando. But it’s one year, I’m going to definitely be in the ears of people at LIV and try to see if I can get back there because I want to support what the Masters means to the game of golf, what the membership of Augusta means to the game of golf, and I would love to be there for the Women’s Amateur and the kids on Sunday.”

The 44-year-old (along with all LIV players) is currently suspended from the PGA Tour but will make his first start since the PGA Championship in May of 2022 at this week’s Saudi International at Royal Greens Golf and Country Club after missing time with a torn meniscus.

Patrick Reed issues statement following rules controversy in Dubai

Published

on

On his way to finishing runner-up at last week’s Dubai Desert Classic, Patrick Reed found himself caught up in two incidents of note.

The first, widely nicknamed ‘Tee Gate’ saw a pre-event spat between Reed and the world number one and tournament favourite Rory McIlroy, resulting in the former Masters winner lobbing a LIV-branded tee in his opponent’s direction. Little were they aware that it would take a birdie at each of the final two holes for McIlroy to overcome the most talked-about player in golf.

The second newsworthy episode involved Reed losing his ball up a tree on the 17th fairway, an escapade that resulted in a social media frenzy asking whether the ball found was, in fact, the correct ball and how several marshals identified it.

The DP World Tour’s statement at the time cleared Reed, stating that, “Using binoculars [the DP World Tour Chief Referee] joined the player in the area and asked him to identify his distinctive ball markings,” and “was satisfied that a ball with those markings was lodged in the tree.”

Video footage and players’ comments subsequently pointed to the ball flying into a different tee, but in Reed’s defence, he was likely to have been advised to the exact tree to look into, rather than guess himself.

He signed for a bogey five on the hole, a score that could have been one shot worse if having to reload on the tee box.

Reed himself sees the event much like most did the tee-peg incident – as something and nothing – and posted a statement to that effect on Twitter today:

With that all over, this week Reed returns to the Asian Tour for the Saudi International, where he meets up with much of his LIV counterparts in an event dominated by two-time champion Dustin Johnson.
