We want to think of golfers as one big happy and reasonably well-paid family, all in this competition-and-country-clubs thing together. Turns out, sometimes they’re not buddies at all! Who knew?
Your scene: the US Women’s Open, where Sophie Gustafson tried to get a whole host of her fellow players to sign a flag for charity. And everyone happily obliged … except one.
Oooh! Gossip! Intrigue! Who could it be? Michelle Obama? Katniss Everdeen? Doris Kearns Goodwin? That “Call Me Maybe” girl?
Aw, come on, Sophie, give us a spoiler warning! Also … catfight!
Anyway, you can decide for yourself whether it was worth taking this fight to Twitter. For the moment, Kerr is winning the battle where it counts: she’s at +1, tied for seventh, while Gustafson holds down dead last inside the cut line at +17.
