‘Getting to a point where I just don’t give a s**t’ – Danielle Kang blasts greens at latest LPGA event

Published

on

LPGA star Danielle Kang began the week in search of her 7th LPGA Tour win at the Mediheal Championship. She returned to golf last month after revealing that she had been dealing with a tumor on her spine.

The event was held at the Saticoy Club in Somis, California, for the first time in event history. The event also made for the first time the course has hosted a professional event.

Kang struck the ball well all week but couldn’t get anything going with the putter. She expressed her frustration with the greens after her third round.

“My ball striking worked really well today. I was getting very frustrated on the greens.”

She also said her and her playing partner Hye-Jin, couldn’t get the ball close to the hole so decided to play a money game and hit the putts harder.

“We both couldn’t get it to the hole. Eventually we started playing money games and start smashing putts. That’s how we started making birdies on the back three holes.”

Kang is of the opinion that the greens at The Saticoy Club are far too slow for a professional event.

“I think the greens are just so slow and I think they need to cut them. I think it’s enough of just letting them grow out. I think members are pretty upset. They’re coming up to me for the last four days infuriated that the greens are playing this slow.”

Kang continued to express extreme frustration, saying she was getting to a point where she “just doesn’t give a s**t.”

“I’m getting to a point where I just don’t give a s**t at that point. I just missed every single putt coming in. At one point you just get to a point where you have to hit it as hard as you can; that’s what I did.”

In the final round, Kang shot 67 and finished in a tie for third place, just two shots back of Shadoff. Her aggressive strategy with the putter seemed to pay off.

    The day the LPGA brings in the fans and Money the PGA Tour does maybe they will get some better courses to play..You can take the attendance of the Champions Tour and the LPGA Tour and you will have about 15% of the total that attend PGA Tour events. They need to be happy they can make a living at all.

    I suspect all the critical comments of Danielle Kang’s complaint of slow greens at Saticoy are from recreational golfers. Good, even great pro tour golfers complain or whine about course conditions that don’t meet their expectations, just part of a good round. Danielle had a very good tournament, and is knocking at the door for a win after her return from a back problem. She obviously, adjusted to the slow greens but just wanted to complain as part of the experience. Observers should just take her critical course comments with a grain of salt and just an explanation of why she didn’t win!

      Biting the hand which feeds you is poor manners, no matter where you are.

      Danielle comes off as a Diva. Not a good look.

      That’s what I thought, until I heard her talking a few years ago. TDS runs in her veins. Why? Who knows. Nut job for sure.

    So let me get this straight: The greens were slow, so you started to hit the putts harder, and you started making putts. What exactly is the issue?

    Sounds like the guys in my weekend game. lol

      EXACTLY! Wow. Why is it that “fast greens” have to be used for the best players? Do you know who the guy or lady is that wins on slow greens? They’re the best player at that event.

      Broad??? OK sport, it ain’t the 1950’s. And the ONLY guy that didn’t sound like a complete loser when using the term ‘broad’ was Frank Sinatra (& his ‘era’ passed a good while ago).

  97. Common sense.

    Oct 10, 2022 at 2:43 pm

    I agree that evyeone played on the same course. But I also know that slow greens drive good players crazy. The more hit you have to impart , the worse your speed control is.

    Dear Danielle,

    In a golf tournament, the player has to adjust to the conditions. It’s not just a matter of who has the better technical golf skills. The mental game and ability to adjust is paramount to being the champion that week. Now go sit back down and think about what you said. Try better next time.

    Sincerely,
    Golf

    Everyone putted on the same greens yet she is complaining with a third place finish.

  102. L. WHITE

    Oct 10, 2022 at 12:43 pm

    It was a parking spot complaint months ago. Why she didn’t talk to those at the course is beyond me. Now it’s the greens. PGA LPGA etc…play on exceptionally manicured courses but some people complain no matter what. Sorry the greens were not in line with your regular putting stroke. Piss and moan….nothing is never their own doing.

  103. whinybaby

    Oct 10, 2022 at 12:15 pm

    Seems like everyone else has to play on the same greens – maybe stop complaining about the same LEVEL PLAYING FIELD as everyone else and just play better?

  104. Tim

    Oct 10, 2022 at 12:11 pm

    Why is it that every professional who plays bad or cannot putt blames the golf course and greens? They play on the purest golf courses in the world with minimal imperfections and they still complain.

    If the greens are slow, you putt the ball harder. One would think a professional would figure that out during practice rounds but instead complains and just talks bad about a course that any other golfers would die to play.

    Grow up Danielle and stop being such a damn baby!!!

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.
