His career brought him face to face with many of sports greatest stars -- Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Muhammad Ali, Don Shula, countless Hall of Fame NFL stars, more PGA Tour players than he can count. In 1980 he was honored by the Golf Writers Association of America for writing the best news story that year, his coverage of Jack Nicklaus' U.S. Open victory at Baltusrol. Today, 36 years later, golf is still a great part of his life, thanks to competitive playing days and the wonderful people he has met on this fabulous journey.

    Interesting how some of the easier courses can be the most penal (at times) for the new age bombers like Bryson.

    Now we know, Courses all need to add more cactus at 400 yards, maybe even in the middle of the fairway.

    Brooks may be back but he needs time before anyone gets too excited. Well except Tom. He’s always excited to see Koepka.

    I wonder whom DJ got 19 from ? Is it Mrs Social Butterly?

      Bax: Love your “Mrs.Social Butterfly” reference; that’s what I was thinking….you know she’s “out and about”……not all that excited about Brooks…..I think he’ll eventually require surgery…

        Sadly it seems that way. Hopefully he truly is better but he hasn’t really walked much yet, which is his biggest problem, right?

        It could have been a year long ordeal for brooks. But by avoiding surgery it could turn into a 2-3 year or longer ordeal; which would make it tough to get all the way back to the top.

        This brings up the issue of the bodybuilders in golf. Sure it can get players revving their engines like never before, but they also spend way too much time in the garage.

        I’m worried guys like Rory will chase Bryson only to start getting injuries themselves…and possibly lose their games.

        Bryson truly has complicated things.

          I think players will listen to their physio guys, most of them have a “team” behind them…..

            That’s precisely the concern of the old timers.
            Not everyone has all of Brysons information and even his long term health is yet to be proven.
