Two PGA Tour players with bad blood finally played another round together

The last time these two players played in the same group on the PGA Tour, things got a little ugly.

You don't often see PGA Tour players argue with each other, not compared to how often you see it in other sports anyway, but a few years ago Joel Dahmen and Sung Kang got into a heated exchange when one accused the other of cheating and the two were finally in the same group once again during the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am.

Dahmen saw the funny side when he found out who he would be playing his final round at Pebble Beach with on Sunday and took to social media to share it with his followers.

Those who knew the story from 2018 were quick to join in on the fun and reply to Dahmen's tweet, with fellow professionals Eddie Pepperell, Thomas Pieters and Ben An all having their say.

Dahmen and Kang don't exactly see eye to eye and the two haven't played in the same group since the 2018 Quicken Loans National, when Dahmen accused Kang of cheating.

Long story short, during the 2018 Quicken Loans National, Kang's ball found a hazard and Dahmen was extremely sure that the ball hadn't crossed the hazard, meaning the South Korean needed to drop his ball before the entry point.

Kang on the other hand was adamant his ball had crossed the hazard before entering and dropped his ball much closer to the green and left himself with a far easier shot.

Due to the rules official not seeing the shot, he had to go with Kang as he was the player who hit it. The debate lasted about 25 minutes and caused a serious backlog with the rest of the field.

Kang demanded that Dahmen apologised to him, whilst Dahmen felt that he and the rest of the field were the ones owed an apology. No one ended up apologising and the two hadn't said a word to each other since.

"Kang cheated," said Dahmen in 2018. "He took a bad drop from a hazard. I argued until I was blue and I lost."

During Sunday's final round at Pebble Beach, Kang shot 1-over par to finish in a tie for 63rd, with Dahmen shooting a level par round to finish in a tie for 60th.

Dahmen's caddie, Geno Bonnalie, tweeted after their final round that Kang chose to break the ice early on and said at the first tee: “My friends told me I should push you off a cliff,” which Dahmen replied to with laughter, taking the joke well.
