The dogs of the DogLegNews Dog House are lined up, eagerly — they’re volunteering to take a nice chunk out of PGA Tour exec Andy Pazder closest limb.
It wasn’t the least bit funny, not humorous at all last Sunday when Joaquin Niemann sped around East Lake in less than two hours then headed for the scoring room at the Tour Championship. On the way they were confronted by PGA Tour Director of Competitions (aka one of the Sheriff’s Evil Henchmen) Andy Pazder.
“Come over here, we need to talk,” Pazder said to Neimann. “Listen, Joaquin, as a professional, you’ve disrespected the game, you’ve disrespected the Tour Championship. This is not how professionals act, and (caddie Gary Matthews) you’ve been out here a long time and you should know that and here is a fine for $10,000.”
At that point, Neimann and Matthews were probably wondering what the fine would be for decapitating a PGA Tour staffer.
“I look at him like, I was burning inside,” Neimann said. “I was going to say something and he’s like, ‘All right, forgive me. Before you say something, I was just kidding.
“I was like, ‘Oh, I hate you.’”
Message to Andy: That WAS NOT funny.
No way Pazder wants to come near the Dog House — the dogs didn’t think it was funny and they all want a bite of him.
