Jeff Gove: pouring salt on the wound

Jeff Gove won’t be winning the Humanitarian Golfer of the Year, at least not this year. While playing with Michelle Wie, who got sick with heat exhaustion and had to get an IV and go to the hospital, it appears that Gove was glad to have Wie drop out because he felt Michelle was “inconsiderate” and just holding the group up. For a guy who’s missed seven of the last nine cuts, he sure does have his opinion.

“She just said, ‘I’m going to withdraw,’ which was good because she was holding us up again,” said Jeff Gove, who finished at 1-over 143 and missed the cut by three strokes. “I saw she was hurting, but she never said anything. And she was walking real slow, which I thought was inconsiderate again because we’re trying to keep up. If we get on the clock again, that’s painful.”

This reminds me of the time when Pete Sampras became dehydrated and threw up on court while playing a 5-setter against Alex Corretja. While vomiting, Pete received a delay of game warning from the ump. Talk about lack of concern.
