Tiger Woods was likely not impressed with who played with Phil Mickelson at latest LIV pro-am



Tiger Woods is unquestionably one of the staunchest supporters of the PGA Tour.

The 15-time champion has also been one of the most vocal anti-LIV players, and one of his own major backers has, in the past, confirmed their own denial of the rebel league.

Hero MotoCorp are not only sponsor a range of events on the DP World Tour, but also provide huge backing to Tiger’s own tournament, the Hero World Challenge, won in the last two years by Viktor Hovland.

Previous winners also include Henrik Stenson, Bubba Watson and Graeme McDowell, all now committed to the Greg Norman-led tour, and all taking part in LIV London that starts on Friday.

As usual, the practice rounds took place on Thursday, and golf news site @NUCLRGOLF tweeted about one particular group – Phil Mickelson and Dr. Pawan Munjal, the CEO of Hero MotoCorp.

Last October, Hero decided to drop its sponsorship of Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri after he decided to jump ship to LIV, the irony being that his seventh and last professional victory was at the Indian Open, sponsored by Hero.

So, what was Dr, Munjal doing at Centurion Club? It may well have been a day out, being escorted around by the richest backers in world sport, or it might just have contained an ulterior motive.

With LIV set to be part of the new joint PGA/PIF/DPWT regime, and having mentioned team sponsorship many times in the past year, are we about to witness the first purchase?

It will be fascinating to see what Tiger makes of the impending news.

    Tiger issue is really irrelevant. However, it does not look good that the CEO of Hero was at a LIV event after dropping Anirban Lahiri’s sponsorship because he joined LIV.

      Why? PIF just purchased the PGA Tour. Everything is being worked out. He came back into the scene and are making amends like everybody else. Hero doesn’t want to lose their image.

    What a story. Use Tiger Woods name in the headlines in a misleading manner to draw people to the story which is in fact not at all about anything Tiger has said or even will say. This is desperate journalism at it’s best. I wonder what Tiger would have to say about this story. Nice job jason.

        Correct. Woods is a druggie pervert and everyone thinks he is so great. Just one more thing that shows you how far down society has tumbled.

          Correct. People accepting a bunch of terrorists as owners of liv and thinking it is the best thing for golf is how far down society has tumbled.

          • Joke ya dig?

            Jul 8, 2023 at 8:07 pm

            Correct. People thinking that when the US car companies, housing companies, banks and insurance companies were all bailed out by the government to put the debt ceiling so high that it can never be paid back without the help of moneys coming from places like the PIF, they have no clue as to how the real world works and their hatred is totally misplaced lmao

Golf fans are loving this awkward Bryson fan interaction video at latest LIV event



Over the weekend at LIV Golf London, Bryson DeChambeau continued his solid run of form, finishing in 13th place. Centurion Club had a respectable turnout of fans on site, with plenty following the big-hitting Dechambeau.

At one point, a fan reached out to fist bump the former U.S. Open champion but didn’t quite reach. The Crushers GC, of which Bryson captains, made a light-hearted post on Instagram with a video of the moment.

“These fans edits are getting out of control… ?”

DeChambeau commented on the post, “just a couple inches short…”

The 29-year-old will tee it up next at the 151st Open Championship at Royal Liverpool. He had success at the Open Championship hosted by St. Andrews last year, finishing in 8th place.

Content creator leaves golf fans triggered after showing how to make the perfect ‘John Daly’ cocktail



John Daly is one of the biggest names in golf despite not having played at very high level for quite some time due to injuries and health issues. Over the weekend, Daly found himself in some social media controversy once again, although it was no fault of his own.

A popular TikTok account, @cookingwith_darryl, mentioned a drink he called the “John Daly” in one of his videos. The food connoisseur has gotten very popular on the app by posting videos while cooking on his Blackstone grill.

“In my opinion there are two drinks synonymous with golf. You want to argue with me? Bring it! One is the Transfusion, the other is the John Daly. Let’s make the perfect John Daly.”

Darryl then went on to explain the ingredients: A chilled glass, vodka, and equal parts lemonade and iced tea.

@cookingwithdarryl Another classic drink for the golf course…The John Daly #drinks #golf #rukiddingme #rhoback ? original sound – dpostelnick

However, the TikTok users in the comment section were furious with the content creator, saying the drink he described was an “Arnold Palmer,” not a “John Daly.”

Darryl was sure to point out the very important distinction between the two: the “John Daly” contains vodka and “Arnold Palmer” does not.

‘Heartbreaking’ – Matt Wolff responds after being blasted by LIV teammate Brooks Koepka



Yesterday, Smash GC captain Brooks Koepka publicly blasted his teammate Matthew Wolff in an interview with Sports Illustrated.

“I mean, when you quit on your round, you give up and stuff like that, that’s not competing,” said Koepka. “I’m not a big fan of that. You don’t work hard. It’s very tough. It’s very tough to have even like a team dynamic when you’ve got one guy that won’t work, one guy is not going to give any effort, he’s going to quit on the course, break clubs, gets down, bad body language, it’s very tough. I’ve basically given up on him—a lot of talent, but I mean the talent’s wasted.”

On Friday morning, Wolff issued his response to Koepka via Sports Illustrated.

The 24-year-old said it was “beyond disappointing” to read Koepka’s comments.

“I read the SI interview with our Captain Brooks Koepka and it was beyond disappointing to me. When I chose to join his Team in 2023, I did so with much optimism about my new home as part of Team Smash and equally as important the chance to be around and learn from a player of Brooks’s stature. Like everyone who has ever played the game at the highest level, I have had competitive moments in the past that I feel I have let myself down and even others in our new team environment. This has been quite difficult for me. My challenges on and off the golf course with my mental health has been well documented. I deal with those challenges every day.

“However, while my 2023 season has not been all I had hoped for to this point, I have made positive strides in managing my life and feel Ike my game is turning for the positive. To hear through the media that our team leader has given up on me is heartbreaking. It’s not what a team member looks to hear from its leader, and I think we all know these comments should have been handled much differently. But I’m moving forward and won’t ever give up on myself. While on course results may not appear now to be positive indicators, I’m trying to win an even BIGGER game with my life.

“Finally, I trust Brooks wants what is best for our team. But it’s hard to imagine his comments in his recent SI interview in any way line up with those priorities. This will be my last comment on this matter. I’m heading out today to the Centurion Club trying to help our team win this week. I appreciate everyone’s continued support and your respect for my privacy.”

Both Koepka and Wolff will be teeing it up at Centurion Club on Friday. Koepka will be playing with Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson, while Wolff will play alongside his fellow Smash GC teammates (minus the captain) Chase Koepka and Jason Kokrak.
