This week, the LIV Golf series returns to Trump National Doral Golf Course as the final stop of the inaugural season of the tour.
This week’s events are different from previous ones staged by the Saudi-backed Tour. It features four days of action split between individual stroke play and match play.
In a similar changeup, Ian Poulter replaced Lee Westwood to be the Majesticks GC team captain.
At the pre-tournament conference press conference, the Majesticks as well as the Iron Heads, under Captain Kevin Na, held their press conferences together. Things got a bit awkward.
The clip below shows Na trying to make fun of Lee Westwood’s age. Ian Poulter replied that Westy was a former World Number One.
After some back-and forths, Kevin Na was brought up. Poulter then decided to take on Na’s play.
It could take him some time to get a few steps in. It usually does ,”, said Poulter. This was met with awkward reactions and a lot of oohing from the others in attendance.
“We’ll allow that one stew for a bit,” stated the moderator, trying to get the conversation moving. But when Kevin Na jokingly asked official Slugger white “Play slower on purpose?” Poulter went for the knockout blow and said “I don’t think it’s possible to be any slower, Kev.”
Things became tense when Kevin Na made a joke about Lee Westwood’s age before their matches. It should be a great one.
