People are not happy with Daniel Berger withdrawing from the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational after taking one swing and then collecting his last place check for $50,500.
Berger withdrew from the tournament because of a “shoulder injury” right after hitting his tee shot on the first hole at Firestone Country Club.
I’m really disturbed by the @DanielBerger59 situation. I’m all 4 him WDing if hurt, but not ok w/collecting more than I make in a year 4 it.

If I can't get a damn raincheck at my local muni after playing one hole Daniel Berger shouldn't get $50k for hitting a tee shot #jerk

Daniel Berger doesn't always WD after his 1st shot, but when he does, he hits it 307 down the middle and walks off with $50,500.
