Trevor Immelman hits back at LIV Golf’s Greg Norman over Presidents Cup tweet

Trevor Immelman didn’t have much patience for Greg Norman wishing his International Team well at the Presidents Cup.

Immelman, the captain of the group that’s been ransacked by Norman and LIV Golf, had a one-word response to Norman’s tweet saying he hoped the International Team would hoist the cup for the first time since 1998: “LOL.”

That, Immelman explained, was a literal response.

“Look, any of you that have known me for the longest time know that I’m an extremely open and honest person,” Immelman told reporters Friday. “I pretty much say it exactly as I’m thinking it. What I said was exactly what I was doing when I read that tweet. I was laughing out loud.

“I learned long ago that lying is dangerous because you’ve got to have a good memory. So I’d rather just tell the truth.”

The Internationals lost Friday’s session 4-1 to fall behind 8-2 in the biennial event. After a number of their players defected to Norman’s LIV Golf — including World No. 2 and reigning British Open and Players champ Cam Smith — Immelman’s roster is a shell of itself and not surprisingly playing accordingly.

“Outside of all this angst — golf is golf, competition is competition; something every golfer thrives on,” Norman, the CEO and commissioner of LIV Golf, tweeted on Thursday. “As a former player & Captain of the International Team, I wish @TrevorImmelman & his entire team the very best in repeating our only 1998 @PresidentsCup success in Melbourne.”

Norman was a part of the 1998 International Team that won at Royal Melbourne, the only time the International Team has won the competition.
