Earlier this week, the feud between LIV Golf and the PGA Tour reached new heights.
While golfers from both leagues rarely play in the same event, the Dubai Desert Classic provided that opportunity this week. This resulted in one of the first LIV Golf vs. PGA Tour golfer events.
During a practice round today, Patrick Reed of LIV Golf allegedly threw a tee at PGA Tour star Rory McIlroy. It was a somewhat unbelievable story that instantly went viral on social media.
Thankfully, video of the incident has finally surfaced. Reid shook hands with McIlroy’s caddy and then went to acknowledge McIlroy, who had no intention of speaking with Reid.
After being fouled by McIlroy, Reid reaches into his pocket and throws a tee in Rory’s direction.
It’s a lot of noise about nothing, but shows distaste for some PGA Tour golfers who have moved to LIV golf.
McIlroy has been one of the most outspoken PGA Tour members, and his response to Reed spoke volumes.
