Fourball-foursome-matches
PGA Tour golfer Jeff Overton faces three misdemeanor charges after he allegedly resisted arrest in Indiana as police tried to arrest him for public intoxication and disorderly conduct. Overton, 28, a native of Indiana, drew the attention of officers by yelling at people from his limousine, WFIE-TV reported, citing information from police. The arrest and charges Saturday follow similar charges in 2007, later dismissed, and illegal consumption of alcohol charges in 2001 and 2003, when he was underage, the Evansville Courier-Press reported. Overton's limousine was blocking traffic as he yelled at people in front of a sports bar, the Courier-Press reported, citing a detail from a police report, before he was later seen yelling at passers-by outside a police station, where he was arrested. He had appeared earlier in the night at an Indiana-Kentucky college basketball game to present a $50,000 check for the Play Golf America initiative run by the PGA and LPGA tours, US Golf Association and PGA of America.

  • Saw Jeff at the Masters and the AT&T this past year. He's a talent, no doubt. However, he's about 15+ lbs overweight and playing hide the belt with his gut while he's still in his 20's. Tying it all together, he'd probably be even more of a talent if he cut out the booze and dedicated himself to a bit more fitness. You can play Jeff, but this is the 4th time that the booze was the common denominator to the point of law enforcement involvement. It is very nice that you donated 50K. But after a few vodka tonics, your generosity was in vain. You are getting too old for this stuff, and soon the Tour and it's followers will be as well. It'd be a shame to see you waste your talent. Grow up and stop embarrassing yourself.
