‘A d*******g that won’t STFU’ – PGA Tour pro blasts Billy Horschel in explosive interview



As the bitter feud between the PGA Tour and LIV Golf shows no signs of subsiding, more names are beginning to voice their opinions on the affair that is sure to run for some time yet.

On the FirePit Collective’s The Grind podcast this week, PGA Tour member Robert Garrigus expressed his views, which included a wild prediction that the DP World Tour would soon be canceled while reserving special criticism for outspoken LIV critic Billy Horschel.

On his view that the DP World Tour would soon cease to exist, Garrigus told host Ryan French:

“I don’t know how they can survive to be quite honest. It’s going to be interesting to see how these people are going to fund that tour.

They’re letting the LIV guys play and they’re trying to take a stance, like ‘oh, we’re not going to say this guy’s name’, but the dude that just won (Otaegui) played the first three events on LIV and they were f*****g him the first three days when he was breaking scoring records and they weren’t even saying anything about him. Finally he won and they had to say something because it was his home country – they’re being so petty about this which is just bulls**t.”

“It’s not their fight. This is a PGA Tour player, DP World Tour guys – this is our deal and they’re making it about them, not us, and it’s really frustrating because there’s no reason the LIV guys shouldn’t be getting that publicity. There’s no reason why the DP World Tour guys who’ve played on LIV shouldn’t be getting that publicity because to be quite honest there’s only a couple of guys out here who have taken a stance like they actually care.”

But it was Billy Horschel who Garrigus really laid into on the podcast, calling him a “d*******g” who won’t “shut the fu*k up.”

“The d*******g Billy Horschel – he won’t shut the fu*k up and I can’t stand it. Even Rory’s taken a step back and Rahm’s taken a step back because they’ve realised it’s not a fight you can win.

“I can’t stand guys getting on TV and interviews saying all this s**t about the LIV guys, but when they get on the driving range they ain’t going to say s**t to them. Nobody’s getting in a fight on the driving range except Grayson Murray.”

Garrigus also predicted that PGA Tour Chief Jay Monahan would be ousted from his role within the next year or two, describing him as a “nice guy” but not a “war time president.”

    Golf, as a game, doesn’t need the constant bickering and infighting at the pro-level as we enter global economic tough times. It was just a few short years ago that golf was booming, courses were packed, and Golf/Country Clubs had wait lists. Now not even famed Cherry Hills Country Club has a wait list – 30 open spots in their membership. And I personally have 3 friends who are single digit golf addicts (3 days per week), who haven’t been playing lately. It’s just a combination of financial, time spent, and the bristly environment on the pro tour. People are going to pickelball lol.

    I know that my biggest complaints about the PGA Tour for many years have been, “Why can’t we have more obscenity-laced trash talk, with players personally attacking other players? And couldn’t we inject into tournament golf the most divisive political character in 150 years? And finally wouldn’t it be best if we tore down much of golf’s establishment so that we could get more Saudi Arabian sponsorships? Sure, PGA Tour players make tens of millions of dollars. But they could be making hundreds of millions of dollars!

    Yes Robert, they wouldn’t get into fights on the range, because grown adults don’t get into fights. Man-children get into fights.

    Can’t wait for liv to die and these has-beens to disappear from the pages of history. With any luck, they won’t get OWGR and that will be that.

    Billy Ho is a crybaby. Funny how he and others say things they would never say to someone else’s face. I watch the majors, some LPGA, and some LIV. I’m done watching the fall wraparound tournaments to include the ones with like Sanderson Farms. The DP World Tour will be merged with LIV aka eaten by it. It’s just a matter of time.


    Oct 20, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    Wake me up for the Players championship next year, then for the Majors (don’t care who is or isn’t playing in them, I’ll watch them). In the meantime, I’ll watch the LPGA. Cute girls in skirts/shorts who play a game more realistic to my skills. I’ll leave the PGA/LIV fellas to stumble over themselves for a while.

    Is anyone actually bothered what Garrigas on the 72nd says. He’d better hope the DP world does’nt shut down cos i don’t see anywhere where he’ll get a game. He won’t get onto liv and his card on the main tour has surely long gone. TBH even if he went back to Korn Ferry he’d struggle with that 33 knuckle grip.

Report: LIV exec calls McIlroy a ‘little b***h’ and says they can now finally get these 2 PGA Tour stars



As the fallout from one of the craziest weeks the sport has ever seen continues, speculation is rife over what the future of golf will now look like.

Speaking during his hotly anticipated pre-tournament presser at the Canadian Open, Rory McIlroy made his thoughts clear, hoping the merger would now see LIV Golf vanish.

“I still hate LIV. I hope it goes away. And I would fully expect that it does. And I think that’s where the distinction here is. This is the PGA Tour, the DP World Tour and the PIF. Very different from LIV.”

However, per a report from Alan Shipnuck of the FirePit Collective, Rory may not get his wish.

According to Shipnuck, following the merger announcement, a meeting took place where Greg Norman addressed LIV employees and stated that there would be “no operational changes into the future.”

“Norman radiated confidence, saying that the 2024 LIV schedule was nearly finalized. “There will be no operational changes in 2023, 2024, 2025 and into the future,” he said. Then came the mic drop: ‘LIV is a stand-alone entity and will continue to be that moving forward. And that comes right from the top.’

Furthermore, a LIV executive told Shipnuck that every top name will now get a LIV offer but that McIlroy will be snubbed as “nobody wants that little bitch on their team.”

“Now we can finally get Hideki [Matsuyama] and Jon Rahm. I would say every big name on the PGA Tour will get an offer. Except Rory. Nobody wants that little bitch on their team.” 

What happens next remains to be seen, but it looks as if the wild and whacky drama is set to continue for quite some time.

Report: Despite rumblings of LIV’s demise, a meeting took place yesterday that tells a different story



After the shocking PGA Tour/DP World Tour/PIF merger, there was plenty of speculation that the deal would put an end to LIV Golf in the near future.

In the PGA Tour meeting Tuesday, commissioner Jay Monahan said “that a full review of LIV’s commercial viability would be conducted at season’s end”. Those who were in the meeting took that as a bad sign for the future of LIV, including Rory, who spoke about LIV in his press conference on Wednesday.

As for Rory McIlroy:

“I still hate LIV,” the four-time major winner said. “I hope it goes away. And I would fully expect that it does. And I think that’s where the distinction here is. This is the PGA Tour, the DP World Tour and the PIF. Very different from LIV.”

Despite the rumors of its demise, Alan Shipnuck of the Firepit Collective wrote on Thursday morning that the feeling after Greg Norman’s press conference with LIV employees that isn’t going anywhere.

Shipnuck, who’s had his ear to the ground for almost two years on everything LIV Golf, shared the feeling he got when watching the Norman-led meeting.

“By way of an opening, he said, ‘Congratulations, you changed golf, and you did it in less than a year.’ The employees on the call had taken huge professional risks to join LIV and were understandably jittery. Norman radiated confidence, saying that the 2024 LIV schedule was nearly finalized. “There will be no operational changes in 2023, 2024, 2025 and into the future,” he said. Then came the mic drop: ‘LIV is a stand-alone entity and will continue to be that moving forward. And that comes right from the top.’

The author of “LIV and Let Die” then explained who is really calling the shots in the world of golf going forward: Yasir Al-Rumayyan.

“The man at the top is not Monahan. Or Rory McIlroy or Tiger Woods. Or the the lords of the Seminole grill room, Jimmy Dunne and Ed Herlihy, who brokered the truce with LIV in their roles as PGA Tour board members. No, Norman was referring to the new boss of all of them, His Excellency Yasir Al-Rumayyan. H.E., as he is referred to around LIV, is the governor of the Saudi Public Investment Fund, which can alter economies and disrupt industries with its $650 billion warchest. He is also the chairman of the board of Aramco, the state oil company, making H.E. easily the most powerful person in the world who is not a head of state. His latest title is chairman of the board of the new PIF-Tour entity.”

“That means Monahan reports to him”.

Per Shipnuck, a high ranking LIV executive describes LIV as “Al-Rumayyan’s baby” and find it hard to believe he would let it disintegrate so quickly after how much effort he put into the venture.

“What people fail to understand is that LIV is H.E.’s baby,” said the LIV executive. “He has poured his heart into its creation.” This included numerous meetings in which Al-Rumayyan fussed over every detail, down to the look of the LIV logo.”

“We all went into the call with our heads hanging low, feeling so defeated,” says the LIV executive. “Then it became like in The Wolf Of Wall Street when Leonardo DiCaprio gives that speech and the whole room goes crazy. When His Excellency finished speaking we were all high-5’ing. It was like, Let’s fucking go! We’re gonna fucking do this!

Time will tell how it will play out, but as Shipnuck describes, the future of golf is in the hands of Yasir Al-Rumayyan.
