If you’re a golf fan on twitter, you’ve followed Grayson Murray by now. The former Web.com Tour pro who played his way onto the PGA Tour this season. Grayson hasn’t seen a ton of success thus far, and Twitter nation is making sure he knows it. He’s had a bunch of gems already this year, and this week, he’s at it again.
In his most recent episode, Murray and fellow tour pro Kelly Kraft began to criticize both the European and Asian Tours, saying players on those Tours have an unfair advantage in the World Golf Rankings, and Murray added that if they played overseas, they’d play in every Major and WGC event for the rest of their lives. This, of course, didn’t sit well with many.
Former Asia and European Tour player Byeong Hun An, who now plays on the PGA Tour, first started with a simple tweet:
He then clapped back at the pair, and told them to go to Europe or Asia, so maybe they’d have a chance to play in a WGC Event of a Major. Ouch. Point goes to An. Thomas Pieters also responded, telling the pair to text each other, rather than embarrass themselves on Twitter. After being embarassed, Grayson tried to recover, stating that An tried to qualify through Q-School on the PGA Tour, but didn’t make it, so he had to go overseas. An admitted he wasn’t good enough then, but guess what, he’s there now. It seemed as though the feud was a joke, with Murray stating he couldn’t even say An’s name. Again, An hit him with this:
The final nail in the coffin? An hit him with the below final tweet. Guess it was actually pretty serious. Game, set, match, Byeong Hun An. To further prove that point, Murray went back and deleted most of these tweets and said he will be taking a hiatus from Twitter. Although he’s been entertaining, I think that’s a great idea, because he’s made a fool of himself this go around.
