Urgh.
I’ve always appreciated Rahm but as someone who spends a lot of time around these players, he’s arguably performing to type, as amongst my circles he is regarded as the biggest asshole out of the whole lot of them.

Very disappointing

It’s gonna happen. Hes the biggest money hungry one out there. That said, we are talking just crazy money. Hard to say no to.
He and Tiger are extremely close. Tiger isn't going there, and between them they've just set up their own indoor golf league themselves to start in 2025. Not a chance Rory goes.

Won’t be missed. Swearing and moaning after a bad shot. See ya!
I do get that, but creates content/makes headlines/gets eyeballs on the sport (albeit, for a crap reason), even if they are TikTok/Instagram quick vids of another blowup.
There is a danger it all gets a bit robotic/sterile.

Anyone played any winter golf? Weather has been so bad here lately i haven't played since early December.

Pro shop was selling off ex rental sets the week before Christmas too, used twice, managed to get myself a set of Stealth irons for 450 quid minus a 100 quid voucher I had won a few weeks previous. Normally I wouldn't be bothered playing until March when weather improves a bit but I'm itching to get out.

Yeah, I've been out most weekends, it's been grim, but better than being dragged to HomeBase/B&Q ;)

Our course has had a beating, so wet everywhere. Greens have barely recovered since their winter maintenance. There's definitely been a few 'why the fuck am I out here?' moments.

I've got an iron fitting on 1st of March so trying to at least keep the swing sharpish so I can go into that moving half-decent.
