Reactions to Daniel Berger Withdrawing After One Swing Then Collecting $50k

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.

Though he won’t get any Fedex Cup points, Berger will still receive a check for last-place earnings totaling $50,500.
