Curtis Strange Doesn’t Appreciate Friendly Banter!

Two-time U.S. Open Champion Curtis Strange has taken to Twitter to voice his opinion on Jon Rahm and Andrew Landry’s interactions throughout their playoff at the CareerBuilder Challenge on Sunday. Rahm and Landry tied for pars on the first three playoff holes before Rahm made birdie on the fourth to win the event. But it was Strange who voiced his issues with the two competitors in regards to them chatting to each other during the playoff.


This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a display of displeasure toward professional golfers and their “friendly on-course banter”. Spieth, Fowler and Thomas were certainly in the public eye throughout 2017 as they competed against each other in an almost “too friendly” atmosphere. Many people disagreed with the obvious friendships and support of one another leaking onto the course, even if the three friends were all in contention.

What are your thoughts on the friendly competition we seem to notice more and more in the new generation of professional golfers? Is it good for the game? Or are we losing the killer instinct of old?

I’ll leave you with this final reply from Strange himself.
