Patrick Cantlay ripped by fans over pre-shot routine just days after Masters controversy

Published

on

On Sunday at The Masters, Patrick Cantlay got a lot of heat from both his competitors and fans for his alleged slow play.

At one point, Viktor Hovland was seen approaching the green while Cantlay was still far back on the fairway.

Brooks Koepka also noticed the slow play. He played alongside Jon Rahm in the final group while Cantlay and Hovland played in the penultimate group. The four-time major champion was asked about the slow play from the group ahead.

“Yeah, the group in front of us was brutally slow. Jon went to the bathroom like seven times during the round, and we were still waiting.”

On Tuesday, at the RBC Heritage, Cantlay’s was asked about the pace of play on Masters Sunday as well as Koepka’s comments and had this to say:

“Yeah, I mean, we finished the first hole, and the group in front of us was on the second tee when we walked up to the second tee, and we waited all day on pretty much every shot. We waited in 15 fairway, we waited in 18 fairway. I imagine it was slow for everyone.”

Although Cantlay maintained his innocence, a recent video that’s gone viral on social media Thursday contradicted his comments.

Cantlay certainly doesn’t appear to be waiting for the fairway to clear here. And fans’ responses were very much the same, with plenty venting their frustrations and disbelief over the footage:

“This is just crazy. Had to watch several times, staring at the civilians in the background to make sure it was legit. WOW,” said one user on social media, while another stated “Thought this was a loop, but its real, and the absolute worst.”

It’s been a tough week of backlash for the American, but he’s off to a great start at the RBC Heritage. He shot -3 in the opening round and sits inside the top-20 on the leaderboard.

‘That looks brutal’ – First photo of Tiger Woods’ leg without sleeve shows depth of injury

Published

on

It’s been a struggle of late for Tiger Woods on the golf course. The 15-time major champion has only teed it up five times in 2024, finishing 60th in The Masters and missing the cut in the other three majors. He also played in the Genesis Invitational and was forced to withdraw.

Woods has many ailments, but none as debilitating as his surgically repaired leg. Since his car accident three years ago, the 48-year-old has rarely been seen without wearing a leg sleeve. However, on Monday, a fan was able to take a photograph of Woods’ leg without the sleeve.

The photo was taken at an event Tiger’s son, Charlie, was playing in by “blakebunkersgolf” on Instagram, and one of the top responses on X towards the photo was simply “That looks brutal.”

Woods has struggled with the lack of reps on the course but hasn’t given any indication as to whether his schedule will look any different come 2025.

John Daly says this is the best golf course in Scotland…and it’s not St. Andrews

Published

on

John Daly withdrew at last week’s Open Championship with a knee injury, but the 58-year-old was back on the links this week showcasing one of the most famous golf courses in the world for his fans.

While at Trump Turnberry, John Daly recorded a video of the 18th green.

In the video, the 1995 Open Champion shared his opinion that Turnberry is the best golf course in Scotland, even better than St. Andrews.

“Hey everybody, John Daly here. I’m at Trump Turnberry today. I went out and tried to play a little bit. This place is amazing. It is the best golf course in Scotland, I think. St. Andrews is my baby, but I think I just found my new baby. I’m at the 18th green right here, this thing is unreal.”

Turnberry hosted its first Open Championship in 1977, which was dubbed “The Duel in the Sun” when Tom Watson beat Jack Nicklaus by a single stroke. The most recent Open the course hosted was 2009, where Watson almost won again, but lost to Stewart Cink in a playoff.

The course is not slated to host any Open Championships in the foreseeable future.

Popular former champ reveals why the 2025 Open Championship may be his last

Published

on

The Open Championship did not disappoint, as both Royal Troon and Xander Schauffele starred in the 152nd edition of the event, with the now two-time major champion pulling away on the back nine.

The Open is a tournament that hosts so many legends of the game, including past champions such as Darren Clarke. After the tournament, Clarke told the Belfast Telegraph that next year’s Open Championship at Royal Portrush may be his last.

“Yes, I made the cut here [at Royal Troon], and if I make the cut in Portrush, it will be great and all that sort of stuff, but I’ve got my name on the Jug, and I have my name on the Senior Jug, and I would feel bad taking the spot away from a young kid.

“I was a young kid once, so to take a spot away from a young kid who may fulfil his dream of playing the Championship, sure, I’ve done mine. I don’t know what I will do.”

Clarke fared well at Royal Troon, making the cut and finishing in a tie for 75th.

The Irishman is 55 years of age and is exempt in The Open until age 60 as a result of his 2011 win at Royal St. George’s.

“Royal Portrush, as we all know, is very special,” he added. “The guys all loved it the last time we were there.

“But I’ve been thinking about it quite a lot. I’m 55 now, and I’ll be 56 next year for the Open at Portrush and it may be my last one and thank you very much, that’s enough for me and I can give some young kid an opportunity that I had whenever I was starting off.

“We’ll see, but I am certainly looking forward to being back in Portrush.”
