CHARLOTTE, N.C. – International Presidents Cup captain Trevor Immelman was apparently scrolling through Twitter on Friday morning when he saw Greg Norman’s post wishing the squad nicely at Quail Hollow.
Immelman had a one-word reply: “LOL.”
After all, it was Norman, a former Presidents Cupper himself, who helped decimate the visiting staff by luring a host of big-name talent to LIV Golf, a few of them after the qualifying deadline. As a outcome, the Internationals have been heavy underdogs heading into the week’s matches, and their 8-2 deficit by way of two classes ties the largest in event historical past.
Asked to broaden on his ideas in the captains’ press convention on Friday evening, Immelman stated: “Look, any of you that have identified me for the longest time know that I’m a particularly open and sincere individual. I pretty much say it exactly as I’m thinking it. What I said was exactly what I was doing once I read that tweet: I was laughing out loud.
“I realized way back that lying is harmful because you’ve got to have a great memory. So I’d somewhat just inform the reality.”
