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.
