‘Everyone can calm down’ – Amanda Balionis Renner hits back at critics over Keegan Bradley interview

Published

on

After Keegan Bradley emerged victorious at the Travelers Championship, disagreement broke out on social media about whether or not the tournament could be considered Bradley’s “hometown event.”

CBS’ Amanda Renner interviewed Bradley after his win, and asked the 37-year-old, “What does it mean to be a winner at your hometown event?”

Bradley responded by saying, “This is for all the kids that grew up in New England…gotta sit through the winters and watch other people play golf.”

“I just am so proud to win this tournament. Traveler’s and everybody involved puts on a first-class tournament. It’s been like this for decade.”

Bradley is from Woodstock, Vermont, and the Travelers Championship takes place in Cromwell, Connecticut. He attended Hopkington High School in Massachusetts for his senior year and played on the golf team.

In response, there were some people who questioned whether Renner was correct to essentially call Cromwell, Connecticut Bradley’s “hometown.” Renner responded, saying:

Regardless of which New England state Bradley is from, he was happy to have the fans’ support.

“It’s been unbelievable. I’m so lucky and so thankful to be from this New England area and I just can’t believe — this feels like a dream.”

The amusing reason why Scottie Scheffler refused to sign autograph for spectator at Travelers Championship

Published

on

Earlier this week, the Boston Celtics won the 2024 NBA Championship, defeating the Dallas Mavericks in five games.

Scottie Scheffler, who’s a Mavericks fan, arrived at the Travelers Championship this week, which of course will have plenty of Celtics fan being in New England region.

According to Scottie, a fan at the course asked him to sign his Celtics hat and the two-time major champion refused to do so.

Last year, Celtics fan Keegan Bradley won at TPC River Highlands, so Scheffler is out for revenge after a lackluster performance at last week’s U.S. Open.

‘If Steve Williams was Rory’s caddie…’ – Tiger Woods’ ex-coach highlights key moment in Rory McIlroy’s U.S. Open collapse

Published

on

With Rory McIlroy coming up short in yet another major championship, there have been plenty of opinions shared on social media about what the superstar needs to do to win another.

Hank Haney, who was once the coach of Tiger Woods, shared his opinion on X on Tuesday.

“I will say this, if Steve Williams was Rory’s caddie I can promise you he would have never hit a perfect flighted 7 iron that rolled over the green on 15 into a terrible lie because he would have hit an 8 iron and sent it straight up in the air and held the green.”

Haney also added: “Wrong club, wrong shot, bad plan.”

Harry Diamond has been McIlroy’s caddie since 2017 and is one of the Northern Irishman’s closest friends.

McIlroy will take a few weeks off before teeing it up at the Genesis Scottish Open a week before the Open Championship at Royal Troon.

Brandel Chamblee says this area of Rory McIlroy’s game costs him in the biggest moments

Published

on

It’s been over a decade since Rory McIlroy last won a major. At last week’s U.S. Open, the Northern Irishman had his best chance in recent memory to finally got over the hump, but missed two putts inside five feet, including a 2’6? putt, which cost him the tournament.

While speaking on Golf Channel, Brandel Chamblee shared his opinion on what he believes has held McIlroy back in the biggest moments.

“Don’t get me wrong, I love Rory’s golf swing, it’s beautiful. It’s beautiful. But he’s now finished in the top-ten in the last six US Opens and he’s averaging in those six US Opens – because I just looked here in strokes gained approach – about 30th. Guess what they do not do? Win US Opens.

“The guys who win US Opens finish first, second, third, fourth. Brooks Koepka in US Opens – first, second, most greens and best iron shots, strokes gained approach.

“Rory consistently underperforms in his iron play – and that is the most important statistic.”

The stats back up Chamblee’s opinion. On Sunday, Rory ranked 69th of 74 players in Strokes Gained: Approach.

McIlroy will take a few weeks off before teeing it up at the Genesis Scottish Open followed by the last major of the year at Royal Troon.
