Social Eyes DJ trolls destroyed, Spiranac trick shot

2016 08 Dj1

Welcome to this week’s Social Eyes! First up we have Dustin Johnson.
The US Open champ had qualified to represent the USA at this week’s Olympic event but chose to swerve the Games due to concerns about the Zika virus.

This week, he posted this picture of him and fiancée Paulina relaxing on a boat…

All is well and good, right? Well, DJ was subjected to a torrent of Olympics related abuse from commenters and Paulina felt it was only right for her to step in with this expletive-filled defence.


Naturally, social media has been going Olympics crazy this week as golf gets ready to make its return. With that in mind, it’s only right that we bring you some of the best bits.

Scottish caddy Craig Connelly has already been ribbed by Martin Kaymer on social media for wearing his 'Germany' emblazoned gear.

One thing we have certainly learned this week… Justin Rose loves a selfie!

Henrik Stenson, Andy Murray, Heather Watson, his wife Kate and his caddy Fooch have all got involved, too.

He also knows it's best to avoid the weights area when the Great Britain Rugby Sevens team are in the middle of a session.

The Italian national anthem is regarded by many as being amongst the best in the world.
Big thanks go to Italian European Tour star Matteo Manasserro for sharing this video of his fellow countrymen and women singing their hearts out en route to the opening ceremony.

And finally...

Paige Spiranac made her first cut at a professional event at the Ladies Scottish Open in July.

It's good to see the San Diego native still enjoys practising her trick shots, too!
