Glamorous golfer Paige Spiranac – pro-PGA – shoots wayward players who have joined the controversial game of LIV Golf.
The 29-year-old former golfer has posted a clip of an infamous encounter between Argentine superstar Lionel Messi and young TikTok personality Salt Bay on the track in Qatar after the World Cup final.
Of course, there was no convergence of views: Missy Bay ignored.
The link’s biggest influencer imagines PGA superstar Rory McIlroy doing the same with the LIV Golf Squad.
In the video, it appears that Salt Bay is going after the legend Messi and is going to great lengths to get his attention. salt who? Messi brushes it.
Golf fans will jokingly watch Spiranac do the same when McIlroy – an outspoken critic of the junior tour – meets golf mavericks. The golfer said things “won’t end well” at LIV Golf.
She captioned the video: “LIV players trying to say hi to Rory (McIlroy) at the Masters.”
On Tuesday, the Augusta National Golf Club said it would “invite those eligible under our current criteria to participate in the 2023 Masters Tournament.” The announcement means that eligible LIV members will be allowed to participate in the 2023 Masters tournament, including Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson.
“Any decision you make in life for money doesn’t end up going in the right direction,” McIlroy said last spring.
“Obviously, money is a determining factor in a lot of things in this world, but if it’s only for money, it doesn’t seem to work out the way you want it to. I’ve faced this many times in my life.”
Contact the Spiranac McIlroy Team. She joked that the golfer would snub Johnson and others at the Masters in 2023 – the same way Messi beat Salt Bay.
At first, Rebels like Mickelson and Johnson were banned from attending PGA events, but there was a change in attitude. Given the intensity of the war of words between the two groups, there could be a lot of silence in the club.
In August, McIlroy again contacted LIV Golf.
“I hate it, I really hate it,” he told reporters.
“I hate what he does in golf. It would be hard for me to go to Wentworth in two weeks and see 18 there. It just doesn’t suit me.”
