On May 25, the Professional Golf Association of America (PGAA) admitted it was wrong to control the order at the last hole of the major they held on Kiawah Island, South Carolina.
“Despite welcoming the audience’s enthusiasm, we are still guilty of the moment when they burst with emotion on the 18th hole. The scene was exciting and unforgettable, but it left the golfer and the caddy feeling hurt. I personally apologized to both players on behalf of the association”, page Twitter PGAA’s official statement quoted CEO Seth Waugh.
This year’s PGA Championship closed the curtain on the morning of May 24, Vietnam time. On the closing day, Phil Mickelson and Brooks Koepka played in the same group, starting the last round, from hole 1 of Ocean Court, par72. After 17 holes, only they were left fighting for the championship, but Mickelson led Koepka by two strokes. And after Lefty made it to the green safely with a 9 iron, the crowd chanted “Lefty, Lefty, Lefty”.
Hundreds of people rushed into the fairway, following the two competitors to the finish line. In that scene, several police officers and the tournament supervisory team had to clear the way up for Mickelson. When the American player was born in 1970 on the “safe” spot on the green of the last hole, his compatriots were born after 20 years to arrive.
Around the pit area, the crowd jostled for good places, competing to take pictures. Many people tried to get into the close-up, even an extreme fan grabbed Mickelson’s shoulder. After the tournament, a fan asked for his reaction to this. “I elbowed him in the ribs and he backed away,” Mickelson said half-jokingly.
But Koepka was angry. “It’s not funny at all. I don’t know what words to use to properly describe the scene at that time without getting scolded. My right knee was bumped a few times. It hurts a bit now. It’s unconscious,” Koepka said after the ceremony. solution. The golfer born in 1990 competed in the PGA Championship with his right knee not fully recovered from surgery in March because of a dislocated kneecap and damaged ligament.
“Someone got in the way and hit my caddie in the face, so he stopped suddenly. I was behind, couldn’t dodge, so my foot tripped on the bag of sticks he was carrying. Then about five people around me jostled. The feeling. Like they did it on purpose. Tonight, I have to apply ice again,” Koepka added.
Mickelson won the 103rd PGA Championship at -6, holding $2.16 million and becoming the oldest major champion. Koepka and Louis Oosthuizen finished T2 at -4, each receiving $1.056 million.
