Nothing surprises me at the moment when it comes to events in the USA.  The George Floyd murder, police brutality, rioting looting, citizens carrying machines guns on the streets.

But top PGA Tour players like Brooks Koepka, Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas getting absolutely hated on for posting a single black square to support the #Blackouttuesday Instagram campaign for "Black Lives Matter" was pretty shocking.  Yes golf is white dominated but I didn't expect this.

Some of the comments.......

So let me get this straight? Your ok with the riots n looting going on in cities all across the U.S if it’s “necessary” to bring equality. I think you need to clarify your statement more??

Maybe you could play around of golf with Justin Timberlake and the loser would pay bail for the thugs that burn the building down this is bullshit

You don't care but you just took a stance I disagree with. Good look with your career. It has been fun...until now. Don't forget White Out Wednesday and Tan Skin Thursday so you are fair......get a grip. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

You also stand with Rioters and Looters

Brooks oh boy I was a fan of yours but not now you need to stick to golf and get out of this type of arena with your post for your information all lives matter young man please stick with golf

Does anyone have a back bone!! Will you black out your screen for Police Officer shot in the back of the head last night. Will you paint his name on your cleats. Nope! Cause your afraid of your sponsors. Can we stop using black and white - and call people out case by case. Good vs evil. No matter what side the good and evil are on.

And the hate wasn't just reserved for Brooks. Rickie and JT got it too.

 You're damned if you do and damned if you dont.
