‘I really regret my decision’ – Dustin Johnson sarcastically mocks LIV critics

Published

on

While speaking in his pre-tournament press conference at LIV Jeddah this week, Dustin Johnson joked about regretting his decision to join LIV Golf.

“We talked about this yesterday. I really regret my decision to come here. It’s just so terrible.”

It was clear Johnson was being sarcastic, which generated a lot of laughs in the room.

“I’m sitting there last night thinking about it, it was really bothering me a lot. Yeah, [I] just can’t get over it.”

Johnson has made over $30 million in just six starts on the LIV Tour.

“DJ” was also asked about the Official World Golf Rankings debate, and he seemed very certain that they would eventually be given points.

“We’re going to get world ranking points,” he said.

“Just right now it’s another way. And the longer it takes, you know, obviously the more low [we will go down in the rankings] it becomes for us. If we wait too long, all of our rankings are going to drop so much, it’s not going to matter.

“We are hoping they [the OWGR] do the right thing, and all of us hope to hear in the next week or so and this will all go away.”

Johnson is set to tee it up at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club this week for LIV Jeddah. The two-time major champion has been excellent throughout his career at course. He’s won twice and hasn’t finished worse than 8th in any of his past four starts.

    155 MILLION earned this past golf season? I call that a pretty good year. Majors? He already has the trophies. Tour victories? Check that box also. Ryder cup team victories? Uh huh also. So remind me again, what’s left to play for in his particular case? I don’t think people understand that some of these guys do not want to play on the Champions Tour till they’re 70.

    I think the whole “legacy” thing is so overrated. Unless you are going to win more events than Tiger or more majors than Jack, you’ll always be in second place. And absolutely none of the current crowd of golfers are beating those two guys.

    Dustin Johnson? Isn’t that the cocaine and pot addict who stole a gun used in a murder and nailed Will Mackenzie’s wife?

      funny, some people (who have fully functioning brains) remember your (and your type of people, leftist idiots) reaction to hideki and his caddie at the masters… i guess a lot changes in the minds of simpletons just because of a couple of news headlines

            Yea. Strange isn’t it? It’s like the Neocons in 2003 have morphed into leftists of today. Makes sense since they are controlled by the same (((Bolsheviks))) pushing globalism.

Bryson’s current situation with Cobra revealed as he uses TaylorMade driver at Saudi International

Published

on

At this week’s Saudi International, Bryson DeChambeau surprised golf fans by putting TaylorMade’s Stealth Plus 2 driver in the bag. Bryson has been a long time staffer at Cobra Golf and it was a shock to see the 28-year-old with a driver from a different OEM to begin his season.

Per Dan Rapaport of Barstool Sports, a Cobra rep has confirmed that Bryson is simply out of contract with the brand, but that the two parties are currently in discussion about this year and the future.

In our forums, our members have been discussing the changeup from DeChambeau, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • FifeRiviera: “Honestly Cobra woods are the single most underrated pieces of equipment on the market.”
  • Lacey Underall: “Just my guess – everyone on LIV will be an equipment free agent soon.”
  • KimmerBH: “Never been a fan of Bryson but I do miss seeing him play every week along with some others that went to LIV. He was definitely entertaining to watch, I’ll give him that.”

‘Sums up my life in the golf industry’ – Paige Spiranac on polarizing Phil Mickelson tweet

Published

on

After a long break from Twitter, Phil Mickelson was extremely active on Twitter yesterday. His resurgence resulted in the golf world reacting for most of the day.

Paige Spiranac used one of Phil’s tweets to “sum up” what it was like to be a female in the golf industry.

The tweet seemed to be a joke, and to be clear the tweet Phil shared wasn’t directed towards Spiranac, yet some Lefty detractors weighed in calling the tweet “misogynistic.”

The full context of the tweet is here:

We can be sure that as long as Mickelson is this active on Twitter, the app will be buzzing with golf personalities and their reactions.

‘The hypocrisy is astounding’ – Phil Mickelson takes aim at RBC for missing logo at Saudi International

Published

on

This morning, Cameron Young played the first round of this week’s Saudi International at Royal Greens Golf and Country Club.

As noticed by Twitter user “EPatGolf”, the 25-year-old PGA Tour player was missing the RBC logo that is typically on his sleeve.

Patterson speculated that the reason for the missing logo was RBC’s reluctance to be associated with golf being played in Saudi Arabia.

Never a stranger to controversy, Phil Mickelson weighed in on the topic, accusing RBC of hypocrisy.

Mickelson has been extremely active on Twitter lately and replied to a Danny Woodhead tweet just a short while ago about a potential LIV vs PGA Tour match with Tiger Woods and Phil as captains, even managing a little dig at his long-time foe.
