KEVIN KISNER | PGA TOUR
PGA Tour star Kevin Kisner has been suspended by his home club after appearing in a video with friends racing golf carts, playing money matches and drinking beer at the venue.
Palmetto Golf Club in Aiken, South Carolina, took action following the video produced by Vice Sports – who have almost 500,000 YouTube subscribers – and presented by Callaway, one of the world No.22’s sponsors.
The video (below), entitled Beer, Bets and Golf Cart Races: Kevin Kisner Preps for the Masters, was published on April 6, a day before his debut at The Masters with the start of the video information reading: “PGA Tour golf is one thing. Social golf is another, and generally features much more beer. Kevin Kisner is an expert at both..”
Kisner then confirmed that he’d been suspended, along with the other members involved in the video, to GolfWRX’s Ben Alberstadt, branding the decision taken by the club as ‘pretty comical’.
@BenAlberstadt yes, along with everyone in video who are members as well. Pretty comical— Kevin Kisner (@K_Kisner) April 24, 2016
The American enjoyed a fantastic 2015 season on the PGA Tour, reaching the FedEx Cup finale after three play-off losses at the RBC Heritage, Players Championship and Greenbrier Classic, before carrying that on to the start of the 2016 season with his maiden PGA Tour win at the RSM Classic in November.
