David Leadbetter enters Olympic stay at home fray

Brands them a bunch ‘a pack of spoiled athletes’

David Leadbetter enters Olympic stay at home frayDavid Leadbetter has not being pulling his punches, as he branded the stay-at-homers ‘a pack of spoiled athletes.’

Leadbetter is quoted by Stuff.co.nz as saying that Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player are also furious at the likes of Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Jason Day, and said that the Zika virus had been a ‘convenient excuse’ for those who wanted to sit out the Games.

 “I speak to Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus and they are irate at all the male golfers giving Rio a swerve,” said Leadbetter. “So much work has gone into getting golf into these Olympics. They are a pack of spoiled athletes.”

He also directed both barrels at Charles Howell III, one his former pupils, whom he described as a ‘money machine’.
