The golf world was rocked Tuesday night by news that Patrick Reed has sued Golf Channel commentator and analyst Brandel Chamblee for defamation. The complaint seeks at least $750 million in damages.

Given that current tensions in the world of golf between LIV and the PGA Tour have already led to court proceedings, adding Reed’s wild lawsuit to the mix only served to stir up the world of golf Twitter on Tuesday night.

Reed is of course already a very controversial figure, and hardly a sympathetic one. The world of men’s professional golf, meanwhile, continues to get even crazier. Who could have possibly guessed that off-course legal proceedings and a rival breakaway league could lead to so many headlines for a sport that in recent years has had a hard time getting traction.
