    Tiger already doesn’t get his fair share of the fed ex cup money he created.

    Now probably deserves most of the kardashian money but will have to share most of that.

    Meanwhile the tour risks its competitive integrity with all this.

    Btw this is the definition of appearance fees; which the pga tour is supposed to be better than. But that’s what this is: appearance fees; only in this case it’s appearances on the Twitter.

    So weird.

      I’d like for the Sheriff to explain this one to the big wigs at FedEx as he’s fleeced them to the Nth degree to put up all that FecEx Cup money for performance and now the Tour just ponies over $40 million; You can do that when you have north of Two Billion in revenues and pay no taxes, hiding behind the 501-C-3 veil; A real abuse if you ask me, especially with them setting up a Sports Book at TPC Scottsdale.

        Agree and disagree some. It’s complicated. If I’m fed ex cup I’m super annoyed. Today brees interviewed poults and the talk seems to make the fed ex cup a compliment on winning the Kardashian award.

        Btw GC is showing kim kardashian swinging on social media today. You cannot make this stuff up. I wonder if she is eligible.

          Kardashians would win overwhelmingly; Tiger has something like 12 million “followers” wondering what the Kardashian numbers are?

            They said something on GC yesterday about that. I think I heard she is north of 100 million.
            Your boo Monahan is shipping her tour card as we speak.

            I’m sure The Sheriff would love the nickname I bestowed on him.
