A PGA Tour golfer was spotted wearing a “Blue Lives Matter” wristband out on the course this weekend.
This weekend’s PGA Tour tournament is the 3M Open in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area where George Floyd lost his life to police officers some two months ago.
Richy Werenski, a 28-year-old golfer from Massachusetts, was seen rocking the “Blue Lives Matter” wristband on the course.
Joel Beall, a reporter for Golf Digest, shared a photo and stated Werenski had reportedly been wearing the wristband all week.
Blue Lives Matter is defined as “a countermovement in the United States advocating that those who are prosecuted and convicted of killing law enforcement officers should be sentenced under hate crime statutes.”
The final round of the 3M Open is being televised on CBS.
