Golf fans left angered over the unfortunate update about the Pebble Beach event

The golf world broke out in an outpour of frustration as the news of the event being pushed further back came to light. Angry fans who were expecting to witness some of the most refined talents in action assembled on X and expressed their frustration with a series of back-to-back tweets.

Here are some of these reactions:

One of the netizens quickly gave his analytical feedback on the matter. According to them, “shotgun start is the way to go.” They also supported their reasoning critically and used the opportunity to present possible courses of action.

Yet another fan brought up the issue of how the Pebble Beach-based golf course is “the most overrated on the planet.” They also expressed their anger at how it was a waste of money.

Another fan expressed how it would be a hit in their pockets if the PGA Tour decided to call it off at the 54th hole.

A Twitter user quickly suggested that there is no point in calling it already, as it is not yet dangerous to play on the course. They suggested that the show should go on.

Other members of the golf fraternity were quick to call out the PGA Tour for copying LIV Golf’s format of 54 holes. They even criticized the Tour for copying LIV Golf at every step and made the remark, “Copying the LIV Tour.”

One fan of the holistic sport even deemed this decision of the PGA Tour “pathetic.” They clarified that, unless it was a grave situation like that of lightning, this decision was uncalled for.
