Change Of Policy? Grayson Murray Tantrum Shared On PGA Tour Social

Unlike other sports leagues the PGA Tour has resisted sharing absurd athlete behavior for obvious reasons: theirs is a business built on players behaving like gentleman.

So whether this is a change in policy or just a share because it involves the troublesome Grayson Murray or was simply the posting of a bored overnight shift stuck trying to find the CIMB Classic, is yet to be determined.

But the post was a nice tie-in to the baseball playoffs...not so nice for the green where Grayson dug in his shoe soles:

If the @yankees, @astrosbaseball, @cubs or @dodgers need another arm in the bullpen...

That kid is such a putz…

Does the Tour have help for guys like Murray?

OUTRAGED
I appreciate this kid is a bit of a prick and has some growing up to do, but that hardly constitutes a tantrum in my book, If I were playing in Florida every day, this would be normal business.

I think my Phillies should give him a look!

Geoff you missed the hot story of the day - The Shark just posted a video of him doing dips in an elevator!

That was hardly a big deal. With the build up I was expecting much worse.

The young man has issues, but this is nothing. He appears to fix any damage to the green...I thought it would be an all out meltdown based on the writeup.

Me thinks you've got an axe to grind with this guy. That's hardly a tantrum and my guess is the ball deserved it.

Wake Forest trash...
10.15.2017 | Unregistered CommenterCW
? really ? I don't see why this deserves a write up, much less a response from me. Probably another delete of another of my post is called for

How about a real update on Silverado, rather than the spotty news accounts. Sure would be interesting to hear what Johnny Miller has to say.

Here is the best I have seen so far on the Silverado resort itself, including the status of Johnny Miller's home(s) on the resort property.

Thanks for that, BrianS. Fortunate it wasn't worse.

This meltdown was light fun. Especially with baseball going on. Geoff’s larger question is interesting as regards why Murray is getting singled out. My guess is Tour PR flacks don’t like him or his political bent.

Follow Rahm or Pieters around some time. Volatile and disruptive to fellow players. They are close to “O’Grady brawl with gallery” type problems in their future if they can’t keep it in check.

Those two need to keep it together or they will be out of golf. Sad, as they are enormous talents.

These golfers behavior pale in comparison to Groper in Chief's. GIC's been busy, golfing again with Sen. Graham yesterday, and today with Sen. Paul.

And I thought It was going to be a tantrum after getting a technical for tripping somebody... Sorry that’s Grayson Allen

Throws like a girl... a girl with not much of an arm. How does he not at least clear the water?
10.16.2017 | Unregistered CommenterGIR
After reading the post with the photo again, i think the thinking was trying to bring a smile to people's faces with the baseball finals you mentioned.

A different spin for he PGAT, but a better one, IMO.
