Shemon & Sheppard – In The Afternoon

Weekdays 2pm-6pm

Dustin Johnson regrets LIV Golf move. Those are his words ahead of the tours 7th event. The tour goes to the Saudi Arabia for the LIV Golf Invitational Jeddah. This will be the penultimate event of the tours inaugural season. And one of the faces of the tour had some words that when read come across as critical of his new tour. However, this is not the case. Watch the video where Dustin Johnson regrets LIV Golf move.


Wow. That is is dripping in sarcasm. Apparently he is perfectly happy making $30 million through just 6 events this season. That’s just the money he’s received from LIV. Not taking into account whatever prize money he won on the PGA Tour prior to the move. Full transparency; I didn’t think LIV would make it this far. I underestimated how boat loads of money could sway elite golfers decisions on where to tee it up. But I suppose everyone has their price. If Craig and Pete were offered millions of dollars to move to Saudi Arabia and talk soccer and cricket on their show, I’m sure they would do it.

Jeddah Event

This weekend the tour is in Jeddah for the home event of the tour, which is backed by Saudi money. They are playing at the Royal Greens Golf & Country Club. this course has hosted European Tour events dating back to 2019 with the Saudi International tournament. Of the 4 European Tour events hosted on this course, Dustin Johnson has won 2 of them. That is half for those who can’t do math well. He has finished in the top-3 at 2 of the last 3 tournaments with a win in the first playoff hole in Boston. For that reason DJ is a slight favorite headed into this event. The second favorite is Cam Smith who is playing in his third LIV Golf event. He already has a win under his belt out his tour.

Shemon and Sheppard Wednesday Wisdom Fun Facts 10/12

It’s that time of the week again.  Shemon and Sheppard Wednesday Wisdom Fun Facts for 10/21 at 5:30pm.  Most of you know by now that this is one of our most fun segments of the week.  I try to find the most amusing and entertaining fun facts that you will enjoy.  They are not all family friendly at times I will admit but for the most part it’s fun for all ages.

These little tid-bits of information, sometimes useless information, can be very stimulating to the mind.  I have an expert research team of Minions who work on these Fun Facts 24/7.  And they work for free!  I try to give them certain themes from time to time but generally they do a great job on their own.

Here are some sports related Wednesday Wisdom Fun Facts you might enjoy from this day!

1997 – Liván Hernández strikes out 15 Braves in a complete-game win for the Marlins in Game of 5 of the NLCS. The final called strikeout to end the game was emblematic of home plate umpire Eric Gregg’s abnormally large strike zone.

2010 – Cliff Lee throws a CG with 11 K and 0 BB at Tropicana Field. Ian Kinsler notches 3 RBI including a 2-run HR in the 9th, as the Rangers defeat the Rays in the ALDS. That was the franchise’s first-ever postseason series victory.

2016 – American Auston Matthews becomes the first rookie to score four goals in his NHL debut, but the Maple Leafs lose to the Senators 5-4 in overtime on the first night of the 2016-17 regular season.

Please everyone enjoy your day.  These are simply just extra words because if I don’t get to at least three hundred words in any post I get penalized by the Joe Winner Police!  Just kidding Joe.  Love ya.
