Another day, another incredible golf “fight” in which no punches are thrown (obviously) | This is the Loop

The interaction between Patrick Reed and Rory McIlroy at a Dubai driving range on Tuesday – AKA “TEEgate” – is discussed and dissected as if it were the fight of the century. This, despite the fact that no punches were thrown and even the tee thrown by Reed was not even noticed by McIlroy. (Cue Austin Powers saying, “Who throws a tee anyway?”)

Certainly, we here at The Loop are as guilty as anyone for playing up this incident. But you can’t blame us, because, A.) it’s still great fun; and B.) golf “fights” rarely get better than this. Even when the pros aren’t involved.

Such was the case with another video that surfaced recently that showed some weekend hackers warming up. But in what has become an age-old tale, despite numerous verbal threats and posturing, no punches were thrown. Take a look and listen, however, be aware of explicit language:

It’s an all-time F-bomb tirade by an undisguised dude during the argument that looks like it’s from one group hitting the other. (Another story as old as time on the golf course.)

“That wasn’t even f—ing close! Go finish the fucking game, champ. I’m going to f—ing kick your ass.” But of course that didn’t happen.

“This guy sucks,” he continued moments later. “You’re out of place. That wasn’t f—ing close! Learn to play this fucking game!”

Good product. And a great camera/phone job to record it all. But nothing beats the big “FUHGGETABOUTIT” heard at the end. Unsurprisingly, those involved eventually left and did just that. It’s a gentleman’s game, after all.
