LIV Golf star in furious foul-mouthed outburst at rowdy Adelaide crowd

Dean Burmester was not pleased with an Adelaide LIV Golf fan after the Stinger player insulted a spectator during Sunday’s thrilling team playoff at The Grange.

While competing in the first-ever team playoff for the Breakaway League on Sunday, LIV Golf star Dean Burmester took aim at a fan in Adelaide.

In a tight playoff match that followed Sunday’s final round, Burmester and his Stinger captain Louis Oosthuizen faced off against the all-South African team Ripper GC, the home team’s favorite. After 54 holes, the two teams were level at 53 under par for the week.

Subsequently, two athletes from every side made a comeback to the course to conclude the competition; Burmester and Oosthuizen represented Stinger, while Australians Cam Smith and Marc Leishman competed for Ripper.

Unsurprisingly, as a boisterous mob gathered around the 18th hole, the Australian audience had promised their support for fellow citizens Smith and Leishman. Nonetheless, it appeared as though the South Africans would prevail since they both made approach shots that were nearly perfect on the opening playoff hole, giving them two chances to win with a birdie.

But Oosthuizen and Burmester both burned the edge, missing their putts to guarantee that the fourball had to go back to the tee. Burmester fired his tee shot slightly down the right side as the atmosphere intensified, but he still had a clear path to the green.

Burmester was not impressed, though, as he was heard yelling, “Shut the f*** up!” toward the Adelaide gallery as the Australian crowd laughed around him as he prepared for the second shot. Burmester’s second shot, which went long into the bunker, was greeted with one of the loudest cheers of the day as the crowd taunted him throughout his back swing.

In front of their home crowd, Leishman’s two-putt par made sure that Ripper won, even though Oosthuizen was also in the sand. Aussie favorite Smith praised The Grange atmosphere after his team won, despite the unpleasant scenes in the latter stages.

Smith remarked, “This week has far exceeded my vision for what was ahead.” “I believe that deep down I always knew that Australia would truly embrace LIV in terms of culture, music, entertainment, and all the other aspects surrounding it. I’ve always believed that this is the location where it will take off, and the past few years have been absolutely crazy.

“Last year I said, I’m biased, this is the best tournament I’ve ever played,” the former world No. 2 continued, ranking the Adelaide event as the best he had ever played for a second time, surpassing winning The Open at St Andrews in 2022. I believe it has happened once more this year.
