Golf journalist and presenter Teryn Gregson announced on social media on Monday that he was fired from the PGA Tour for violating COVID-19 protocols imposed by the organization.

“I have very hard news to tell … I needed religious exceptions to their vaccine protocols for camouflage and testing, and they wouldn’t adapt me so I didn’t have to break my religious beliefs,” he said. in his message in a 3-minute video.

Gregson, who has been an employee of the PGA Tour for nearly six years, said he was informed of the kickoff on Friday. She is currently 22 weeks pregnant with her second child.

Appearing on BlazeTV’s “The Steve Deace Show,” 32-year-old Gregson said he had COVID-19 in August and hasn’t been vaccinated.

Gregson said he had been working from home for 19 months, “and we tried to work on different things, and in the end they suddenly didn’t let me work from home anymore, so that’s it.”

The expectant mother said the PGA Tour told her she could no longer work from home because “it was an undoing difficulty.”

The PGA Tour addressed the situation in a statement to Golfweek and said they do not have vaccination credentials but are demanding workers return to the office.

“The PGA Tour does not have vaccination authorizations for its employees. In September, and under the guidance of medical and legal advisors, the PGA Tour created additional health and safety protocols for those who choose not to be vaccinated. Employees have been notified of numerous of these special health and safety protocols,” Tour said.

“With regard to religious exemptions, there is no need for a religious exemption from the vaccine requirement, as we again do not have a vaccine requirement on the PGA Tour. to determine whether the request is valid and what accommodation options can be made. “

Gregson told Golfweek in a phone interview that he was considering legal action against the PGA Tour.

Last month, ESPN co-editor Allison Williams left ESPN because of a Disney vaccine mandate.

Gregson concluded his Instagram video by saying, “I respect everyone’s opinions on this… and I’m very sensitive to this subject, but I pray we can all come together and unite on this issue and not treat people differently based on these private medical decisions. They do.”
