When it comes to group chats, professional athletes aren’t all that different from us.
Apparently there’s an exclusive golf group chat out there, and only Ryder Cup members are allowed to use it. But luckily for us, we got a sneak peek into the chat with one recent funny exchange.
Tiger Woods, who’s all over the news this week with his long-awaited return to the PGA Tour at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, didn’t play in the United States’ victory over Europe, but he was a vice captain and got to join the exclusive chat. Phil Mickelson also is a member of the chat, and the two golf superstars recently were involved in some pretty awesome trash-talking, according to Golf Channel’s Damon Hack.
Hack said he heard about the exchange from Team USA vice-captain Bubba Watson, according to The Washington Post, and that chat members were talking about the sizes of their golf trophies when Mickelson sent the photo.
