Fernandez-Castano doubles down on Thunberg mockery

Gonzo Greta

Despite widespread criticsm, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano has doubled-down on his mockery of teenage environmentalist Greta Thunberg.

Last week, the Spaniard - a seven-time winner on the European Tour – tweeted signing off on 2019 and singled out Thunberg as he detailed all of the flights he has taken this year.

Here’s what he posted…

Swedish 16-year-old Thunberg, who has Asperger's syndrome, was named TIME Magazine's "Person of the Year" earlier this week in recognition of her environmental campaigning - work that has seen her go toe-to-toe with US president Donald Trump.

Twitter users were quick to blast Fernandez-Castano, labelling him, amongst other things, ‘crass’.

Fernandez-Castano finished 127th on the Race To Dubai in 2019 and was forced to go to Q-School in a bid to regain his playing privileges. However, he came up short there, finishing 91st.

Once ranked as high as 27th on the Official World Golf Ranking, he is now 559th.
