Our dogs will be dressed in purple this week to welcome a first-time visitor to the DogLegNews Dog House: Harold Varner III.
This past week at The Heritage, just about every Tour player was supportive of the return of Morgan Hoffmann, who was diagnosed nearly three years ago with muscular dystrophy.
Harold Varner III was a bit insensitive — to say the least. And perhaps it was karma taking a bite out of Harold’s behind on the back nine on Sunday when he couldn’t buy a birdie and finished in a tie for third at Harbour Town.
Varner’s quote regarding Hoffmann’s return:
“I did not, but I’m not a very aware person, never have been. I’m out there to beat Morgan. I don’t really care. I get that he’s been through a lot, but everyone on this planet’s going to go through something, and that’s his battle. My battle may come down the road later. When you’re on the golf course, it’s time to compete. I want to win. I don’t know. That’s kind of messed up, but it is what it is.”
Sorry Harold, even though you’re a fellow ECU alum, that’s wasn’t really cool to say something like that.
So, we’ll dress the dogs in purple and gold so you’ll feel right at home in our Dog House!
