LIV players in twitter feud

A LIV Golf player has apologized to another player after an altercation on social media. Richard Bland, who plays in LIV Golf League events, has apologized to Eddie Pepperell after he made a comment about the English player without warning. The row arose after a discussion about LIV Golf's "party hole" at The Grange Golf Club in Australia. During Sunday's final round, Brooks Koepka's younger brother Chase made an epic hole-in-one, leading to wild scenes. "Watering Hole" was LIV's answer to the PGA Tour's famous par-3 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale, where Tiger Woods made a spectacular hole-in-one back in 1997. Every year in Phoenix, fans get a little excited, and 2022 got some PGA Tour players take off their shirts in celebration. They were warned that the behavior would not be tolerated in the future, and some were simply disgusted by the beer showers.

After seeing LIV Golf fans react so strongly to Koepka's hole-in-one, Bland wrote to critic Pepperell:

"Ed... tell me where at DP World there has been a hole like this. Because I can't think of anything in my 22 years on the tour. But maybe you know something else from your 15 minutes on the tour."

Pepperell did not take the comment well and responded with a left hook:

"Where to start. Probably easy; in my 15 minutes on the tour I won more events than you did in 22 years. What the tour has done (just to name a few); GolfSixes, the Heineken hole at Himmerland, Beat the Pro in Holland. The tour, which you spent 22 years on, went well for you, mate."

It appears that Bland was tweeting under the influence of alcohol.

He clarified:

"Unfortunately, I had too much to drink last night, Ed... and I apologize for what I said. I should know better than to tweet under the influence."

Bland finished tied for 32nd at the last LIV Golf event and earned $162,500. He plays for the Cleeks side in the "Rebel" league, which is managed by Germany's Martin Kaymer. The Cleeks have struggled to perform in the team and currently sit 11th out of 12 teams after four events. Only the Majesticks, consisting of Ian Poulter, Lee Westwood, Henrik Stenson and Sam Horsfield, have a lower ranking.
