Whats up associates!

I simply got here again from US OpenWhich was most likely one of the best week of my life in golf. Besides not acknowledging Justin Leonard in the identical place he helped safe the 1999 US Ryder Cup win, I’ve to say it was a profitable week!

I ate some nice meals (learn: ice cream), socialized with my superior co-workers, met some guys, some cans, some members of the media and even some avid gamers’ mother and father (whats up, Jerry McIlroy!). I had an absolute blast and am unhappy it is over.

Listed here are a number of the finest issues I’ve seen on the positioning and on social media final week.

Father’s Day on the US Open

I purchased my dad a T-shirt From Brooklyn To present him on Father’s Day, a present I used to be so pleased with till I noticed Matt Fitzpatrick had introduced house the US Open for the vacation.

The lesson right here is to not examine your self to the professionals, on or off the course. However congratulations to Fitzpatrick on the win, and congratulations to his dad on probably the most memorable Father’s Day ever.

Unfold the positives for Father’s Day

Jordan Spieth could be very personal relating to what he shares on social media. At this level, I am used to seeing Underneath Armor and AT&T backed posts on his web page, however he gave us a uncommon glimpse of his son, Sammy, on Sunday on the US Open.

Was he nonetheless a model put up to point out off his cool bag? Can! However I will take what I can get, and this image is nice.

Subsequent now we have one in all The most recent member of LIV Golf, Brooks Koepka. It is necessary to notice that by the point I clicked “publish” on this writing, Koepka’s becoming a member of LIV could also be outdated information as a result of charge at which these guys are sticking. Both means, he shared an lovely picture from his marriage ceremony. It has been a busy few weeks for the Koepka household!

humorous rory

I simply did not understand How Many requests gamers are receiving from followers till final week. Cute youngsters scream for autographs, awkward teenagers need selfies and a few adults get into the combo. As McIlroy was signing autographs on Wednesday morning, a person did not cease harassing World No. 2. McIlroy had been begging for his marriage ceremony over the weekend. Ultimately, it received slightly awkward, a lot in order that McIlroy seemingly felt he needed to acknowledge the invitation.

And he did it in a humorous means.

“Not proper.”

McIlroy coped with the matter completely, and he was not the one one who acquired unusual requests in Brooklyn. Again in my day, we patiently waited for autographs from the professionals! Now, persons are yelling at them, asking for batons, gloves, balls, towels, and photos. I do know, I do know, these guys make some huge cash, but it surely nonetheless looks like there’s loads to place up with.

Extra gold from Max Homa

To utterly nobody’s shock, Max Homa’s social media recreation was in massive form final week. It began when the tee occasions had been introduced.

One thing I realized final week is that safety checks your credentials very intently on the US Open. I am undecided if that was the case for the gamers, however I do not suppose Max Homma was keen to take any probabilities. Shout out to the USGA for this large certification.

Greatest participant within the US Open (in my view)

Joel Dahmin and boxer Geno Bonnalie weren’t too optimistic about their probabilities on the PGA Championship final month. Sentiment was a bit increased with the US Open approaching.

In the event you do not comply with these two on Twitter, you are lacking out. Bonnalie is hilarious, documenting the not-so-glamorous elements of touring on tour—say, staying on the Boston School dorm throughout a significant event.

Anyway, Dahmen and Bonnalie have been surrounded by a number of interviews with GOLF.com all through the week, and we had a blast chatting with them. It will get tougher Not To root these guys. they’re nice.

Texts from Koepka

And at last, now we have my favourite a part of this week’s Rogers Report. There is a present development on TikTok the place persons are sharing texts they received from their vital different, and Jena Sims simply received in on the enjoyable final week, exhibiting us some texts from her four-time champion husband.

Colin appeared in applause

Stay this! Stay it! Gamers are requested about the whole lot, and Colin Morikawa is uninterested in the rumors. He took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to clear issues up.

bubble! For individuals who do not know, Morikawa made headlines final 12 months (probably not) for sharing that he pours capsules. inside His milk and never milk in his grain. Very annoying issues. Justin Thomas and Max Homma could not assist however get pleasure from a number of tweets.

There’s a number of drama within the golf world proper now, however no less than we’re getting Colin Morikawa extra energetic on Twitter due to that.
