Brandel Chamblee SLAMS Phil Mickelson's link with "TYRANNICAL DICTATOR"

Brandel Chamblee compared Phil Mickelson and Greg Norman to two men who "don't have access to the internet" with regards to the human rights record of the Saudis.

Chamblee, a former professional golfer but now a writer and broadcaster, shared evidence of the inhumanities and the questionable human rights record of the crown prince Mohammed bin Salman on Twitter yesterday.

In the details that he shared, one article stated that the current regime in Saudi Arabia has shown a lower level of democracy than Hafez al-Assad's Syria and Saddam Hussein's Iraq.

One of the articles referred to pressure being applied to the crown prince over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, an incident Mickelson referred to in his infamous words to Alan Shipnuck.

"As I’ve said often regarding Phil’s involvement w/this tyrannical dictator, but also as it relates to Norman’s, they give the impression of two men who don’t have access to the internet," Chamblee tweeted.

"Purely for money, they are implying MBS is a better leader than Jay Monahan. Surely you jest."

Chamblee also heavily criticised Mickelson's apology statement which was released earlier this week. He accused the six-time major champion of "pretending to be a victim."

In his statement, Mickelson apologised for those he has negatively impacted, but he described the people working on the Saudi golf league as "visionaries."

Earlier this week, Greg Norman sent a strong letter to the PGA Tour and commissioner Jay Monahan where he threatened "This is just the beginning" and accused the commissioner of "bullying."

This came after a number of high-profile players, such as Bryson DeChambeau and Dustin Johnson, committed their futures to the PGA Tour.

Norman is the CEO of LIV Golf Investments who, in association with the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, have pumped $200 million into the Asian Tour and wish to begin the Saudi golf league.
