Kevin Kisner, the PGA golfer who graduated from UGA, threw some shade at the Florida Gators.
Kisner is one of the leaders at The Player’s Championship, which is being played this weekend in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
The PGA Tour’s official twitter account posted a video of a couple of young fans giving Kisner a fist bump, along with saying “Go Dawgs.” Kisner instantly replied with “Go Dawgs.”
Even though Kisner is heavily focused on trying to win the tournament, he always seems to have time to give a shout out to his alma mater.
Things got even more fun later in the day when the same Twitter account posted this quote/jab by Kisner: “There’s more ‘Go Dawgs’ than Gator fans out here. Gator fans need to show up in their home state.”
Somewhere, DawgNation’s Brandon Adams is smiling.
Back to Kisner: He was a member of UGA’s 2005 national championship team, and joined the PGA tour in 2006 after he graduated from college. In the professional ranks, the 35-year old has two PGA wins and racked up more than $16 million in career earnings.
He remains a diehard fan of UGA, especially football. You might remember that Kisner famously tweeted that he needed helicopter ride after his Saturday round at a PGA tournament in the Atlanta area … to the Bulldogs’ game at Mississippi State later that night in Sept. 2017. A fellow golfer helped out Kisner on that wish.
😂 @K_Kisner throwing major shade.
