THE GAME’S TOP 5 TWITTER SPATS
john daly vs. everyone
After shooting 90 in the second round of the 2014 Valspar Championship, Daly might have broken Brandel Chamblee’s blocking record (see spat No. 2)—in one day.
ian poulter vs. ted bishop
Bishop was ousted as PGA of America president in 2014 for calling Poulter a “lil girl.” Ironic, because the touchy Poulter nearly got two people fired with tweets in 2016.
norm macdonald vs. rick reilly
Norm gave a play-by-play of a PGA Tour event. Rick didn’t find it funny. Norm—and his followers— had the last laugh. Be careful going after comedians on Twitter.
rory mcilroy vs. brandel chamblee
The two have argued over McIlroy’s gym time and the optimal angle of attack for a driver. Amazingly, Rory isn’t one of the 20,000 people Brandel claims to have blocked.
donald trump vs. samuel l. jackson
The actor said the future president cheated at golf and sent him a surprise membership bill. Trump made fun of Jackson’s swing and (gulp) his commercials.
