Jake Owen Demands Refund From Pro Golfer
Written by MJ on 4 April, 2019
Despite frequently heading down to the honky tonk, it appears Jake Owen may not be able to hold his liquor as much as he thought.
An interesting fact you might not know about the country star is that he is an avid golfer. Before becoming the country artist we know today. Owen was pursuing a a dream career as a professional golfer during high school and university before injuring himself in an unrelated “wake boarding” accident. During his recovery, he borrowed a neighbour’s guitar and taught himself to play.
While attending the wedding of friend and professional golfer, Jordan Speith, Owen had a bit too much to drink and ended up taking it upon himself to confront another pro-golfer over an unjust expense.
In an interview on Barstool’s “ForePlay” podcast, Owen said he confronted Phil ‘Lefty’ Mickelson about getting a refund of the roughly $30 he and millions of others had “wasted” on a lackluster pay-per-view golfing event that featured Lefty.
Owen told the ForePlay crew: “I was like, ‘Hey, Phil, you owe me f**king $29.99 for wasting four hours of my life with the s*ttiest golf I’ve ever seen … I want my $29.99 back and apologise to me for some s *tty golf.’”
Owen added that Mickelson replied by whipping out a stack of cash and handing him a $100 note and claimed Lefty’s respone was “I won 90,000 of these yesterday. Take one of these and go f**k yourself”.
In response to Owen’s story, Lefty tweeted:
We can list a few celebrities who we’d like a refund from… or even just a handout!
Hey Kim Kardashian, I bought your fragrance for my girlfriend and she hated it, give me a hundred bucks!
Here’s to getting refunds on sh*tty products!
