Tour pros involved in spicy exchange: "I hope you can get your card"

Whenever The American Express rolls around on the PGA Tour, there are invariably some comments over the course set-up. 

In case you weren't aware, it's quite easy for the Tour pros and it's not uncommon for golfers to be on 59 watch. 

Jon Rahm, you might recall, previously labelled the tournament a 'piece of s--- putting contest' because he felt the field could literally hit it anywhere and still make birdie. 

Turning to 2024, amateur Nick Dunlap held the 54-hole lead with his score at a ridiculous 27-under after he flirted with the magical number in round three. 

Dunlap was attempting to become the first amateur since Phil Mickelson in 1991 to win on the PGA Tour. 

His nearest challengers were Justin Thomas and Sam Burns

The point is this: the scores are always low here and it's not to everyone's liking. 

Take, for example, DP World Tour professional Pablo Larrazabal, who posted on X ahead of the final round:

An is no stranger to a bit of controversy. 

Recently he decided to post an ominous three-word message on X after it was confirmed PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan was flying to Saudi Arabia to discuss the framework agreement with representatives of the Public Investment Fund. 

Monahan met with LIV supremo Yasir Al-Rumayyan days after it was alleged the powerful Saudi businessman was accused of 'carrying out' malicious instructions on behalf of the Saudi crown prince Mohammad bin Salman. 

The claims were made in legal papers sent to Al-Rumayyan as part of a £58m lawsuit filed in Canada. 

An was also the Tour pro who was suspended for three months for violating the Tour's anti-doping policy.
