Why does everyone say Sabatini is a jerk?

Everyone seems to say this. He seems fine in interviews, and was nice on Playing Lessons With The Pros.



Was wondering why he has this reputation.



Thanks guys,

    I don't know the man so I can't pass judgement. His face and body language to project a bit of impatience and negativity. Could be that he is just very serious during competition.

    Apparently people that like him, instead of saying "I like Rory", claim "everybody says he's a jerk" to start another thread for people to take shots at somebody. Is he even playing this week or recently that would have even gotten him mentioned?

    I don’t think people say much of anything about him anymore, which says a lot.

    I’ve met him, and he’s pretty abrupt. Some folks might not like his attitude (there’s been more than enough done to warrant that stigma) but in a non-golf environment he wasn’t exactly an engaging person, even when you don’t dwell on golf. He was pretty aloof when I spoke with him. Your mileage may vary.
    A bag of left-handed junk.

    There was that event a couple years ago where he started yelling at some kid, and then more recently wearing pro Russia gear around the time of the election. Plenty of other incidents.

    LOL, didn't he just happen to have head covers with flags from his wife's homeland? And maybe I've got that wrong.



    I've never met him, just haven't enjoyed his antics.



    But a random whine about him and not even spelling his name right seems out of the blue. Was just sitting around thinking about him .....

    He and I went to school (different schools) about the same time and I ended up with him a couple times. It’s no misguided myth, dudes an a-hole.

    I can't figure out if I hope "ended up with him a couple times" means just golf or something magical!

    Ended up in his group? Not really.

    Ended up playing with him? Definitely not.

    Is he actually married? I just did a quick google search and found out that he was married to a Texan lady (Amy), but they divorced a while back.

    However, Wikipedia informs me that he is trying to acquire Slovakian nationality. The Slovakian flag has red, white, and blue on it like the Russian flag.

    I was playing with a local pro I know well and do some lessons with. He played 30 some PGA tour events in the early 2000’s. I randomly asked him who the most disliked guy on tour was, and without pause, “Rory Sabbatini without a doubt”.

    -Mrs Sabatini




    The first Mrs. Sabbatini used to defend him on Twitter, right up until he cheated on her and then emptied out the bank accounts on his way out the door. I remember reading that the Estes’ loaned her money for the kid’s tuition when he wouldn’t pay it.



    He lost most of his sponsors at one point; I remember when Nerf was his bag sponsor.

    I caddied in a Pro Am with him in the group of 4 ams and he was a tool to everybody, talking **** about how much money they just paid to play horribly. He didn't talk to the group and his caddie was a tool too. Totally came across like they gave zero f's about being there.



    On the other hand, another time I was with Patrick Reed and he was actually positive and helped the group. I didn't get to talk to him but he seemed like a nice enough guy, and took pictures & autograph (no neck autographs haha) with anyone who asked.

    Same answer when Howard Stern asked Jason Dufner the same question in an interview. Dufner didn't think long either.

    Hey, you spelled his name right!



    Tiger is playing tomorrow and is last at this point so he'll be getting most of the negative attention again soon. ;-)
