USGA President Diana Murphy Gets Torched on Twitter

USGA President Diana Murphy was ripped on Twitter, following the trophy presentation at the U.S. Women’s Open.

After Brittany Lang’s win at CordeValle, Murphy took to the podium and introduced the newly minted major winner to the crowd as “Bethany.”

Not once. Not twice. But three times.

Come on up here Bethany.

Fans, media members, fellow tour players, and pretty much of all Twitter, were stunned at Murphy’s actions, with many accusing the POTUSGA of being drunk.

Bethany, I mean Brittany Lincome was not too happy. Naturally.

Senior Tour player Bob Estes chimed in.

Christina Kim suggested a new name for Diana.

Kendall Dye wonders if Murphy is even a golf fan.

Stephanie Smith called it an embarrassment.

The media was all over it too.
Augusta sports columnist Scott Michaux checked in.

Scott Thompson of CanadianGolfer.com spotted a trend.

TV golf analyst Robert Lusetich offered a little comedy.

CBS Phoenix’s Tim Ring noticed too.

Golfweek’s Beth Ann Nichols says her mother in law even commented.

Brett Williams of Golf Digest with some advice.

New Zealand sports reporter Abby Wilson counted threee times.

Fans offered up some memes.

Murphy was also accused of being “bombed” on TV during the U.S. Open at Oakmont.

This guy Trent totally appreciates Murphy’s unpredictable behavior.

And finally, Eamon Lynch suggests any criticism of Murphy is clearly because you hate women and stuff.
