‘Outright lies’ – Patrick Cantlay slams journalist who reported ‘totally false’ protest claim at Ryder Cup

Published

on

Although the 2023 Ryder Cup didn’t come down to the wire, there was certainly plenty of drama.

It began on Saturday, when Sky Sports’ Jamie Weir reported that “the US team room is fractured, a split led predominantly by Patrick Cantlay.” Weir indicated that Cantlay didn’t wear a hat as a protest for not getting paid for the Ryder Cup.

Once fans caught wind of the story, they were all over Cantlay, taking their hats off to taunt him.

After defeating Justin Rose 2&1 in their singles match on Sunday, Cantlay was asked if there was any truth to Weir’s report.

“Dealing with some weird, completely false media stories from one person. It’s totally false. It couldn’t be farther from the truth. Outright lies.”

Former Ryder Cup captain, Steve Stricker, who served as an assistant this year, also took to Twitter to slam Weir.

The report seemed to fuel Cantlay, who rallied on Saturday to make a clutch birdie on the 18th Saturday and carried his outstanding play into Sunday.

Cantlay also revealed that he will be getting married on Monday.

PGA Tour pro pleads for Tiger Woods to help change ‘terrible’ hole at Genesis Invitational

Published

on

On Sunday night, after the conclusion of the Genesis Invitational, PGA Tour player Adam Schenk took to X to complain about Riviera Country Club’s difficult par 3 fourth hole.

Schenk isn’t alone in thinking that the fourth hole at Riv is too demanding, but there are also plenty of players and fans who love the hole.

Ben Hogan called the hole “The greatest par-3 hole in America.”

Smylie Kaufman also said that he believes the hole is more about luck than skill.

Ultimately, there is a fine line between challenging and unfair, and the 4th at Riviera will continue to generate mixed opinions on which category it falls under.

Brandel Chamblee offers solution to Scottie Scheffler’s putting woes

Published

on

On Monday, Golf Channel’s Brandel Chamblee took to social media to discuss Scottie Scheffler’s putting stroke, referencing the banning of “anchoring” in the process.

“The USGA and R&A made anchoring illegal beginning in 2016 because the fulcrum established when one anchors simplifies the putting stroke such that one can merely let gravity return the putter to the ball. BUT one can legally simulate an anchored putting stroke by letting the putter head move substantially more than the handle and most of the best putters throughout history have done this.”

“So when I look at Scottie Scheffler continue to struggle with his putting (he was dead last in SG Putting amongst those that made the cut at Genesis) I wonder why he simply doesn’t try to get more flow and take the wooden look of dragging the handle out of his stroke. Compare the degree to which Scheffler drags the handle as opposed to some of the best putters of all time in the pictures below.”

Brandel then posted by side-by-side pictures comparing Scottie’s strokes to some of the game’s great putters of the past.

Chamblee then posted a video of why he believes Scheffler is more prone to having “heel strikes” in his putting stroke.

Scheffler finished 10th at the Genesis Invitational where he lost 4.4 strokes putting.

‘My chill here was zero’ – The comment from Genesis winner Hideki Matsuyama that left Amanda Balionis Renner stunned

Published

on

On Sunday at Riviera, Hideki Matsuyama shot one of the most impressive rounds in the history of the event (check out Matsuyama’s winning WITB here).

The Japanese star was six shots back of Patrick Cantlay to begin his final round with a handful of very good players ahead of him as well. Matsuyama went on to shoot 62 and won the event by an unthinkable three shots. During the round, Hideki made a few incredible shots including a dart on the par-4th 15th to less than a foot.

After the round, Matsuyama spoke to Golf on CBS’ Amanda Renner via a translator about the round. Inexplicably, the 2021 Masters Champion said he felt like he shot 3 over par on the day.

Renner seemed shocked by the comment and took to X later to share her thoughts.

“My chill here was… zero,” she said.

Hideki is truly one of a kind!
