On Sunday, the world of professional golf was once again touting a historical moment, but not everyone was thrilled with how it all came to be.
Phil Mickelson became the oldest player in PGA history to win a tour major, after taking the PGA Championship by two strokes. This was one of the first events in which golf fans were allowed back into the gallery, however, and the intensity of their revery made for a wild scene.
Now, Mickelson’s card mate is speaking out about the mob-like crowd.
Brooks Koepka had already lost the golf tournament. Now, he was trying to protect his surgically repaired knee.take our poll - story continues below
As mayhem ensued on the 72nd hole Sunday, and with security losing control of the masses as thousands of spectators stormed the 18th fairway celebrating Phil Mickelson’s historic victory, Koepka was lost in the mob along with his caddie, Rickie Elliott, for several moments before finally breaking out of the pack to safety.
“It would have been cool if I didn’t have a knee injury and got dinged a few times in the knee in that crowd because no one really gave a s–t,’’ Koepka said afterward. “Yeah, it’s cool for Phil, but getting dinged a few times isn’t exactly my idea of fun. I was trying to protect my knee.’’
Golf purists were awestruck by the display, as Twitter users documented the unprecedented tumult.

One can only imagine that there will be some adjustments made to the PGA tour’s crowd-control policies in the coming weeks.
VIRAL VIDEO: Hockey Fans Belt US National Anthem in Stirring Moment
The moment was simply magical.
For as much controversy as has been manufactured around the National Anthem, there is still nothing quite like witnessing a powerful rendition of a song that brings so many of us pride here in the United States. In the annals of sports history, there are but a few moments of anthemic joy that stand atop the list, with this author’s personal favorite being the incredibly salient and pointed version performed by Whitney Houston at the Super Bowl in 1991: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_lCmBvYMRs Now, 30 years and some months later, another unforgettable anthem moment has arrived. Nassau Coliseum was roaring with energy Wednesday night as fans in attendance belted out the National Anthem before the New York Islanders Game 6 victory over the Boston Bruins in a viral moment that is sure to give anyone chills. Nicole Raviv regularly sings “The Star-Spangled Banner” before Isles games at the Coliseum but on Wednesday night she was overpowered by the crowd, even turning over the microphone to the fans. “My heart is full. The coliseum will forever have the best backup singers in the #NHL,” Raviv wrote on Twitter. A moment like this was made for social media, and it soon spread like wildfire. https://twitter.com/NHLonNBCSports/status/1402773091672068098?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1402773091672068098%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fsports%2Fislanders-fans-national-anthem-viral-game-6-bruins The fans were ready, however, after a microphone glitch forced them to join in on the anthem just two games earlier.

Jason Whitlock has thoroughly upset the left with his common-sense talk on sports and American culture, and now he is about to upset them even more with a new, hour-long program in partnership with The Blaze. Per the recent announcement: On July 6, Whitlock and Blaze Media will launch an hour-long daily podcast/digital TV show, “Fearless with Jason Whitlock,” from a newly acquired and renovated Nashville studio. In addition, Whitlock and Blaze Media will partner on a writing vertical, Fearless, that will explore the intersection of sports, culture, faith, and race.

The writing platform is still in development. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to be partnering with Jason Whitlock on this exciting new project,” said Blaze Media CEO Tyler Cardon. “Jason is authentic, entertaining, and fearless, all of which make him a perfect fit for the Blaze Media brand. He also has great vision and an extraordinary ability to cut through the noise.

Fearless will aspire to be a beacon of truth and fun, two things sorely missing in the America that Nike, China, and LeBron James are plotting.” Some of Whitlock’s former co-workers will join him in the new effort.
