“Long John” to Referee Arm Wrestling and Drinking Bout
The ugly and bizarre duel between two rivaling professional golf tour groups, the more traditional PGA and the Saudi-backed LIV League organization, has apparently landed in Woodland Park.
Although officials are tying to keep the details secret, it was confirmed by TMC last week that the head players involved in both organizations, Rory McInroo and Greg Normann, plan to partake in a variety of competitive functions at Shining Mountain Golf Club and the clubhouse bar with big stakes.

McInroo, who hails from Northern Ireland, is one of the more popular players on the PGA Tour, and is currently rated as the number two-rated player in the world.
“Rory, buddy, have you ever heard the song, ‘Bloody Sunday,’ by U-2.? That is what is going to happen to a fine, but misguided Irishman like yourself. We will see you in court.”
