James Hahn doubles down on his criticism of PGA Tour, has new axe to grind

PGA Tour pro James Hahn turned heads earlier in the week when he started moaning about the newly-released schedule. 

Despite the increases to prize purses, Hahn wasn't best pleased with the amount of travel involved in 2023-2024. 

Chief of Hahn's complaints was the 20-hour travel days, not to mention those pesky expenses on top of that. 

Okay, James, you may have to cover your own expenses, but at the end of your career there's that nice little pension to dip into. 

Of course, PGA Tour players and their caddies do not have all of their expenses and hotels paid for. They have to front that themselves. 

As he points out, the life of a professional golfer is essentially: "You catch what you kill..." 

Though it has to be said, once you make it to the elite level of the PGA Tour, one might suggest you could have quite a nice life. 

Hahn is no stranger to letting people know how he really feels. Earlier in the season, he called out a fan for chewing too loudly when he was putting.

Still, at least he didn't go full Sergio Garcia. Never go full Sergio Garcia. 

This is what Hahn posted yesterday after the schedule was announced: 

And this is his latest complaint:

Immediate thoughts?

A quick glance at his PGA Tour player profile shows that he's amassed $1.1million in earnings this year alone. 

Over the course of his career, he's also pocketed $12million in winnings. Of course there are taxes and expenses...but still?! 

In the comments section, Hahn has claimed that his annual outgoings are reportedly $200,000 give or take. 

Still, as he points out, he loves the PGA Tour. And he's not quitting "to flip burgers".

You will not see him partying on a LIV Golf private jet anytime soon.
