Attention Seinfeld fans: you’re gonna love this pairing at the 2022 U.S. Amateur

“I called in sick. I don’t work in the rain.”

If you’re not a Seinfeld fan, that probably went right over your head. If you are, then you know Newman, like many golfers, doesn’t work in the rain.

And it seems, according to the pairings at next week’s U.S. Amateur at Ridgewood Country Club in New Jersey — about 20 minutes from the backdrop of the hit sitcom — someone at the USGA is a big fan of the show.

For the first two rounds of the USGA championship, Mark Costanza and Hazen Newman will be playing together. Throw a Kremer in there — as in Campbell Kremer — and you’ve got the perfect trio.

We’re assuming this may not have been an accident.

This incredible move by the USGA didn’t go unnoticed by Golf Twitter:
