The Justin Thomas Ryder Cup Controversy: Paige Spiranac Calls Out Fan Hypocrisy
The buzz surrounding this year’s Ryder Cup has been amplified with the absence of Justin Thomas from the Day 1 Foursome matches. Paige Spiranac, never one to mince words, took to X (formerly Twitter) to express her thoughts on the matter, exposing the fans’ blatant hypocrisy.
Just Not Too Long Ago:
It’s intriguing how fickle fans can be. Prior to the Ryder Cup, there was no shortage of criticism directed at Thomas for being one of Captain Zach Johnson’s picks. Numerous voices argued that players like Keegan Bradley or Lucas Glover were more deserving. Thomas had a challenging season, with disappointing performances in three major championships, including rounds of 81 and 82 at the U.S. Open and Open Championship, respectively.
The Trust in Thomas:
Amidst the criticism, Thomas still had an ardent support base who believed in his skill and experience. Boasting an impressive record of 6-2-1 in Ryder Cups, it was his invaluable experience and the confidence of Captain Johnson that earned him a spot on Team USA. However, despite this, Thomas, alongside Jordan Spieth and Brooks Koepka, found themselves sitting on the bench during the Friday morning session.
Paige Spiranac’s Insight:
Paige Spiranac, a prominent figure in the world of sports, particularly golf, knows a thing or two about dealing with hypocrisy. As a woman in a male-dominated sport, she has often confronted double standards head-on. Spiranac couldn’t resist shedding light on the glaring hypocrisy surrounding the fans’ sentiments towards Thomas. In a now-deleted tweet, she bluntly pointed out, “It’s funny how people didn’t want JT on the team and now are pissed he’s not going out Friday morning with Spieth lol.”
A Beacon of Experience:
While some may argue that Thomas’s recent performances warranted his exclusion from the morning session, his past Ryder Cup success cannot be overlooked. Paired with his friend Spieth, it is likely that fans will witness their formidable partnership in the Friday four-ball session.
