    Good one Rory, but I bet Kuch tips more at restaurants than you do.

    I think Kuch is a decent guy. I think he made a few public relations blunders that have switched the narrative on him. Mainly because people are real quick to judge and we have become a society that the court of public opinion gives the death sentence first, facts be dam'ed.

    but, that should get the shot of the year award for the PGA.

    Well, the facts reported on that blunder turned out to be pretty true. In fact, it looked even worse when they did come out and he tried to explain his decision to tip 0.000000315 % or whatever it was. Hard to defend his stance on that decision and he poured gasoline on the fire with his initial responses.

    With that said, I am not a big Kuch fan, but I think he is probably a decent guy as well. We all make mistakes, just most of ours aren’t available for the public to see.

    I do not disagree it was a bad look. My only thought on Kuch's side is that as he had said, is that this was not his regular caddie and there was a pre-agreed deal to loop for the event. If he had not won we would have never heard anything it. But he did, and the caddie felt he was entitled to more than what was previously agreed upon. Those are the facts. At least that I am aware of.

    Now, if it was me, this would have not happened as I would have done the right thing and paid him more. Kuch felt that he was not obligated to do so. I agree with him. He just came off cold, insensitive, and elitist in his approach. Then made himself look worse with the conceded/not conceded putt with Sergio.

    All that being said, as a very wealthy man in today's entitled world he was never going to win the political battle and should have just conceded right away if public opinion is/was important to him.

    Well good thing those wealthy men out there have you, here on golfwrx, protecting their name. I bet they all sleep easier tonight knowing what a guardian you are.

    But that's the McIlroy I want to see, almost spit my coffee out when he said it.

    Not being a guardian, just a voice of reason and temperance. I could be way off, but till I see more I am not willing to kill him just yet.

    Kuch seems like that guy who like,

    Why should I tip? If they don’t like it

    Rory? I could see him throwin a c-note tip for on a $100 brunch. Specially if the waitress is cute ; )

    Tiger? He be like,

    Because where Rory is from it is not customary to tip? That is the only way he could tip less than Kuchar.

    Also, Kuch does not eat out. Too pricey.

    In the video Rory does look like a wee lad. I’d even say borderline Hobbitish.

    Yep. When the vide starts that small lady who’s asking questions totally eclipses him. I thought Rory wasn’t even there for first 5 seconds.

    Interesting. So, Rory IS a linebacker after all. Just so happens he’s a linebacker from 100 years ago. Geez, wish the CBS crew would clarify that point.

    I think any of us would rather have $300k than a witty verbal zinger.

    Kuchar seemed genuinely amused my Rory's comment so I don't think it hurt his feelings too bad.

    I watched Peter Kuchar's stomach- turning performance at Olympic and subsequent mea culpa. Don't blame Matt for ending up a sociopath.

    Nah, you just got to see the real Kuchar.

    By Kuchar you mean "El Cheapo, No Gimme" right?

    I wonder how much of the bonus Kuch will give his caddie. Unless the caddie has something in writing about a bonus my guess is zero. Was a huge Kuch fan before the Mexico incident.

    It almost looks like Matt set up Rory as if he was his comedic sidekick. I think Matt has put the 'issue' behind him.

    Quite the opposite. Notice that he is able to laugh with the other guys even though it was a big-time put-down.

    Yeah, but inside he like

    Ha! Kidding. I think Kuch can take it as good as he gives it. Some people are proud to be cheap.** I have an inlaw that will show up for dinner with an open bottle of wine.**

    now thats a baller move!

    It started with that ridiculous act he and his dad put on during his first masters as an Am.

    The second bounce ‘divot’ he argued his ball could make.

    Caddie payout was just in line with his whole schtick.

    Do we need to bring up Sketchers?

    Not a fan, and that’s going to be his legacy no matter how many backdoor top 10s he gets.
