Mark And Nathan Share An Unbreakable Bond

The two Hubbard brothers share a tight-knit bond. However, they have a slightly different way of showing their love.

They use sarcasm with a little touch of bullying, which is quite okay if you are close to each other.

A quick flashback, it was Nathan who called out Brooks Koepka to withdraw from the Travelers Championship last season, which allowed Mark Hubbard into the field.

Additionally, in 2022, when Mark was disqualified at Memorial Park Golf Club for “knowingly” adding a 15th golf club to his bag at the turn.

Mark’s brother expressed his disappointment after the DQ via Twitter.

His tweet read, “Toe surgery coming Monday. Baby coming any day. 11 million strokes off the cut. Hitting 60 yard spectator hazard slices due to wrong driver setting. Changed at turn to make most of last competitive 9 of the szn. Thought it was 2 shot penalty per use. Declared right away. DQ”

Further adding contrast to the incident, Dan Rapaport tweeted a statement from a PGA Tour official.

From a tour official: “He said he started with a Callaway driver that wasn’t spinning enough….missing a lot of fairways. So, thinking it would be a 2-stroke penalty for each use of a different driver, he “knowingly” switched to a Ping driver at the turn. My man went full YOLO.”

Nathan also mocked his brother by calling him an idiot and retweeted a post from PGA Tour’s official handle on Twitter.
