Billy Haas is in hot water with the PGA Tour after several complaints came in from fellow players regarding Haas’ incessant rambling about Nursery Rhymes in the players locker room at the recent RBC Heritage event.
“He just wouldn’t give up ranting about Humpty Dumpty” said fellow pro Carl Pettersson. “He questioned the reasoning behind sending ALL the King’s horses and ALL the King’s men to attempt to put an egg back together. Billy said something like
‘Why did they need to send them ALL? Surely a delegation would have been better. What if the country had been invaded while ALL the King’s elite soldiers and horses were off fixing a damn egg? Seems a bit wreckless and irresponsible. And another thing, how could horses with hooves instead of fingers have the tactile versatility and precision to glue together an egg?’
He was getting really upset foaming at the mouth and stuff,” Pettersson added.
The North Carolina native has been banned from speaking to anyone except his caddie at this week’s Wells Fargo Championship in his home state of North Carolina. It’s believed Haas has been recently studying Little Miss Muffet and was planning to question fellow pros on the credibility of “Curds and Whey” as a foodstuff.
