The Sony Open and the 3mil USD
Matt Kuchar takes the Sony Open and the Twitter-Reflectors
Kuch took his novenavictoria as a professional shooting 63, 63, 66 and 66. Kuchar is one of the most consistent players in the Tour and in a sport where distance dominates more and more, it is very positive to see the triumph of a different style.
Kuchar does not hit him very far but consistently what can be described as a "fadepedorrito". Even so, fadecito after fadecito took the victory.
But, what caught the attention was the rumor that began circulating on Twitter about the payment of only $ 3,000 USD to the local caddy "El Tucán" who brought him the bag in his win in Mayakoba a couple of years ago. months
Kuchar embolsomas a green melon. In general, full-time caddies, who pay their travel expenses alone, get 10%. Even so, 3 thousand sounds too elbow.
Kuchar responded saying that he did not pay 10% but neither were the 3 thousand, concluding that the subject "you are not a story".
Maybe you will never know what the truth is, but if true, that payment would be a reverendous insult to someone who has earned millions of dollars throughout his career.
Good Performance of Latinos
7 of the 8latinos overcame the cut, starting engines for the rest of the season where some permanence is played and they will have to draw Fedex points from where it is, and with others that have chances to compete and win tournaments.
The Fight of Jordan Spieth
Usually, we tend to look at players who play well. Well it is worth highlighting Jordan Spieth's slump and honesty when talking about it. He accepts the situation and has shared that he does not feel very comfortable standing on the ball.
Spieth did not overcome the cut by a bit, but he can learn how much he fought until the end. This conversation with his caddy shows his claw.
The 5th Major?
With the Players settling in March, there is a conspiracy theory that is making more and more noise: making the Player's the 5th Major.
Why do you mean? The Tour does not operate any Major and in fact the definition of a Major has changed. At some point the Western Open came to be considered a Major and suddenly that title was removed.
Where does the theory come from? The transmissions have been full of content and commercial players, unusual for this time of year, which sparked rumors that leTour has launched this campaign to make the Players a big one.
The Death of the WGCs?
The victims of the new calendar are the WGCs. Adam Scott recently stated that maybe no WCG will play this year.
As proof, the WGC that will be played for the first time in Memphis in July is the week after the Open. Who is going to crave that trip?
The calendar is too condensed and changes will have to be made at some point. There goes an idea to replace the WGCs: play National Open with the same bags. Imagine the Argentine Open or Australia as WGCs.
Alan Shipnuck of Golf.com wrote the spectacular story of José de Jesús "El Camarón" Rodríguez.
Corey Conners qualified the Sony Open through the Monday Qualifier and finished T3 pocketing $ 307,000. The Canadian had to make the trip to Hawaii without knowing if he would be able to play the tournament. It shows how complicated the life of the professional golfer is.
The shot of the week was Gary Woodland with this spectacular approach.
