On September 28, Beijing time, a former business partner sued Tony Finau, a PGA Tour player. According to a lawsuit filed in Utah by the business partner last week, he asked for $16 million in damages.
Tony Ferno turned to a professional player at the age of 17 in 2007, earning a lot of money on the PGA Tour. Since joining the tour in 2015, his bonus income has been close to 20 million U.S. dollars, not to mention his sponsorship fee, I believe it is higher than the bonus amount.
According to "Desert News," former business partner Molonai Hola filed a lawsuit in Utah where Tony Verno and his brother Gipper live, demanding $16 million in compensation. According to court documents, the 55-year-old Moloney Hola paid the Verno family for several years, and he was promised that the Verno family would return the principal with interest.
据《沙漠新闻》报道，前商业伙伴莫洛奈·霍拉（Molonai Hola）在犹他州提起诉讼，托尼·韦尔诺（Tony Verno）和他的兄弟吉普（Gipper）住在那里，要求赔偿1600万美元。根据法庭文件，现年55岁的莫洛尼·霍拉（Moloney Hola）向Verno家族支付了数年的费用，并向他承诺Verno家族将有偿还本金。
Meloney Hora was a football player at the University of Utah (1983 to 1987). He became a candidate for the mayor of Salt Lake City in 2003. He owns Icon Sports. In the early 1990s, he was still studying at Tony Furno. I met him in elementary school.
梅洛尼·霍拉（Meloney Hora）是犹他大学的足球运动员（1983年至1987年）。他于2003年成为盐湖城市长的候选人。他拥有Icon Sports。在1990年代初期，他仍在Tony Furno学习。我在小学认识他。
The court documents pointed out: Meloney-Hola has been paying for the Verno family for several years, the total amount reached 592,371.37 US dollars, including one year, the Verno family moved to Florida, which was convenient for the two brothers. Under the guidance of well-known coach David Leadbetter, Molone Hola provided them with mortgage, medical insurance, a new car and daily necessities. According to the prior agreement, the Furno family will return nearly 16 million US dollars with interest. Meloney Hora claimed to receive 20% of the career bonus of Tony Furno and brother Gippel.
法院文件指出：Meloney-Hola一直为Verno家族付款，总金额达到592,371.37美元，其中包括一年时间，Verno一家搬到了佛罗里达，这对两兄弟来说很方便。在著名教练戴维·利德贝特（David Leadbetter）的指导下，莫洛尼·霍拉（Molone Hola）为他们提供了抵押，医疗保险，新车和日用品。根据此前的协议，Furno家族将归还利息近1600万美元。 Meloney Hora声称将获得Tony Furno和兄弟Gippel的职业奖金的20％。
In fact, such things are not uncommon among young professional players. Early in their careers, they need personal or company funding to pay for travel and entry fees for low-level tournaments. Most of these contracts require repayment of principal and interest.
According to previous reports, Tony Furno comes from a poor family. Tony Furno's father, Kelepi, came to the United States from Tonga when he was 12 years old and didn't speak English at all. His mother, Ravena, is of Tongan and Samoan descent. The couple lived in Inglewood, California, until their father came to Salt Lake City for work in Delta Freight. He can earn $35,000, which allows him to support the life of a family of nine (two daughters, five sons). They live in a three-bedroom house. You can imagine that it is difficult for children from such a family to dream of golf.
In fact, when Tony Fono was four or five years old, his mother began to teach him to dance with a knife that lit a fire. When he was eight years old, he had learned how to wield a stick with sharp knives at both ends like a magic wand. The difficulty of this is that it is burning. On Friday night, Tony Furno will perform this dance at weddings and birthday parties. He can make $50. And he needs this money because he and his brother ultimately chose golf.
实际上，当托尼·佛诺（Tony Fono）四，五岁时，他的母亲开始教他线上买球app哪个好用用一把点燃火的刀跳舞。当他八岁的时候，他学会了如何像魔术棒一样在两端用锋利的刀挥舞棍子。困难在于它正在燃烧。在星期五晚上，托尼·弗诺（Tony Furno）将在婚礼和生日聚会上表演这支舞蹈。他可以赚50美元。他需要这笔钱，因为他和他的兄弟最终选择了高尔夫。
This lawsuit has not yet been resolved, and in the end Meloney Hora may get nothing. But if the opponent wins the lawsuit, the image of Furno and his family will suffer.
Tony Furno won only once on the PGA Tour, which was the 2016 Puerto Rico Open. However, he won 40 top ten places in 165 times in his career, including 6 runner-ups and 3 third places. Currently ranked 14th in the world, the Americans tied for eighth at the U.S. Open last week, and each of the past four seasons has earned more than $2.9 million on the field.
"We have understood the situation and have absolute confidence in the judicial process," Tony Furno's agent Chris Armstrong said in a statement. "We will not comment further on the incident at this time. "
托尼·弗诺（Tony Furno）的经纪人克里斯·阿姆斯特朗（Chris Armstrong）在一份声明中说：“我们已经了解了局势，并对司法程序具有绝对的信心。” “我们目前不会对此事件发表进一步评论。”
