Bad role mod­els

Golf Monthly - - Your View -

I re­cently saw the cov­er­age of Rickie Fowler, Jor­dan Spi­eth, Justin Thomas and Smylie Kauf­man’s Ba­hamas Spring Break, and I have to say the im­ages and videos didn’t sit right with me.

Four top­less young men parad­ing around the course do­ing cart­wheels, jump­ing in ponds and act­ing like chil­dren just gives the game a bad im­age, I feel.

Golf is sup­posed to be a game that en­cour­ages play­ers to re­spect their sur­round­ings, and oth­ers. This was not re­flected in the an­tics of the four PGA Tour pros, who our young­sters are sup­posed to as­pire to. Steve Bar­rett, Torquay
