ICYMI: P.J. Willett’s controversial Ryder Cup article

P.J. Willett was heavily active on Twitter during his brother, Danny’s run at the Masters title. He practically gained instant fame afterwards.

Now, Willett is at it again, by writing a piece for the National Club Golfer. This piece, pretty much pokes fun at team USA and its fans.

I will definitely say, that almost everything he says in this piece is true. Here’s a portion, and probably the juiciest part of the piece:

“They need to stun the angry, unwashed, Make America Great Again swarm, desperately gripping their concealed-carry compensators and belting out a mini-erection inducing ‘mashed potato,’ hoping to impress their cousin.”

Willett continues:

“They need to smash the obnoxious dads, with their shiny teeth, Lego man hair, medicated ex-wives, and resentful children. Squeezed into their cargo shorts and boating shoes, they’ll bellow ‘get in the hole’ whilst high-fiving all the other members of the Dentists’ Big Game Hunt Society.”

You can read the full article by clicking on his tweet, which has been liked over 600 times:

 

His brother Danny will be playing in his first Ryder Cup and it will be fun to watch. The Ryder Cup is always a joy, and P.J.’s piece is another reason why the rivalry is so much fun.

WATCH: Jordan Spieth’s Masters meltdown in Nintendo form

As you may know now, unless you drifted off into wonderland, that Jordan Spieth had one one of biggest meltdowns in Masters history by losing a six stroke lead on the back nine. Danny Willett would win it with a bogey-free round.

But, despite the shocking loss, the video above show a funny version of it. It’s a perfect way to show exactly how a lot of us play golf, after all, it always seems like a video game glitch for most of us.

Enjoy the video by The Kicker, and I hope it brightens up your Monday. Happy golfing.

Danny Willett wins the 2016 Masters, Jordan Spieth collapses

Englishman Danny Willett has won the 2016 Masters with a bogey-free -5, 67 final round in unfavorable conditions. He becomes only the second player from England to win the Masters.

The only other Englishman to win it is Sir Nick Faldo who won it three times. Willett defeated Lee Westwood and Jordan Spieth by three shots for his fifth worldwide win and first major.

Willett began the round at even par while Spieth was attempting to go wire-to-wire for his second straight Masters victory. Spieth was -7 going into the back nine and five shots ahead of the field.

Spieth had the wire-to-wire lead, but the players in second and third place were switching like wildfire. At one point, even 58-year-old Bernhard Langer was just a couple of shots off the lead.

The 28-year-old Willett wasn’t even sure if he was going to play in the Masters as he was expecting a child in the same week. On top of that, this was only his second Masters appearance.

Last season, Willett finished in a tie for 38th at Augusta. His best finish in any major was at the 2015 Open Championship at St. Andrews where he finished tied for sixth (Zach Johnson won it in a playoff against Marc Lieshman and Louis Oosthuizen).

Willett is the 12th ranked player in the world and that ranking will likely go up after this victory. Spieth, who won the Masters last year with a record tying -18, was looking to become only the fourth player in golf history to win back-to-back Green Jackets.

But, the combination of a couple of bogeys including a quadruple-bogey on the back nine by Spieth, and a scorching round by Willett, lead to the end of what was a roller coaster of a Masters tournament.
