Joel Dahman accused partner Sung Kang of cheating

Dahman has never shied away from media attention, but his recent remark about his partner Sung Kang has made everyone rise their eyebrows. Dahman and Kang had their arguments started when Kang’s par-5 10th reached a native area as he tried to get to the green in two. Dahman felt it never crossed the hazard, but Kang disagreed. It was then ruled that it has dropped across the hazard and had to be 35 yards from the hole.

He did make it to safe par. However, Dahman didn’t rest his case there and took it to Twitter while accusing Kang of being a cheater. Kang issued a statement where he said Dahman was taking his stand as per PGA Tour Rules and will provide no further comment and is looking to finish the season on a high. Kang also expressed his intrigue to play in the Open Championship next week.
