Kevin Kisner says he's suspended from Palmetto Golf Club for video he filmed there

If we’ve learned anything about Kevin Kisner since he’s broken onto the golfing scene this past year, he’s a guy who will tell you what’s on his mind.

He also recently showed his “everyday with friends” side in an entertaining video at Palmetto Golf Club, where Kisner is a member, for VICE Sports. The footage from the club included an on-course cart race between Kisner and friends.

Well, apparently, that cart competition or something else in the video rubbed Palmetto brass the wrong way, because Kisner tweeted on Sunday that he has been suspended from the club.

Certainly an unforeseen turn of events. Palmetto Golf Club, located in Aiken, S.C., sits just 20 miles from Augusta National and is a storied links that was founded back in 1892.

GolfWRX’s Ben Alberstadt tweeted at Kisner looking to follow up on what the PGA Tour pro had posted in the above message. Kisner confirmed his suspension along with those of friends in the video.

From the (not-so-subtle) subtext, it doesn’t seem Kisner agrees all that much that his punishment is deserved. It’s unclear how long the suspension is for (if there is a set time), and in the meantime, Kisner tweeted that he’s practicing at Sage Valley Golf Club instead as he preps for the Wells Fargo Championship and the Players Championship (where his name really started surfacing when he nearly won the tournament before losing in a playoff).

It’s worth noting that Kisner, who has rocketed from 282nd to 22nd in the Official World Golf Ranking since last year’s Valspar Championship, lives in a house right next to Palmetto’s 17th fairway. He has been temporarily moved out of that dwelling over the last few months as that house is being expanded.
