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.

    You left out that the pga tour will require players whom pass on the vaccine to test ‘at their own expense’. Vaccine please.


    There’s some cool teams.

    I can see cam and Tony winning.

    Morikawa hasn’t been bad considering he was in the final group. But Wolf is still howling for someone to find him. Maybe collin can answer that call. But I wouldn’t bet on it.

    Bubba and Shefflers team seems formidable.

    But Of course Rahm and Palmer are a beautiful, albeit kinda random, team that will be tough to dethrone. I’m riding them as my pick.

      And who will make the putts for the Finau/Champ team? Certainly not Tony or Cameron…

        Not exactly the masters out there. They can both putt well enough. Imo Tony and champ need to play aggressive tee to green and on the greens especially…play to win from Thursday. If they do They can do it.

        Btw I Didn’t give the leishman-cam smith team love. That’s formidable to say the least, especially with both showing form lately.

        …there’s some nice teams. More than I thought there would be.

          I didn’t realize until yesterday how DREADFUL Champ’s putting state are, 200th-something in Strokes Gained Putting? Good luck on the alternate shot format!

            Not great especially considering this is a tour of mostly great strikers, not putters.
            Champ seems like a streaky putter.
            This team just needs to take care of par 5s, keep it in play, and they will score in alternate shot similar to the winners last year.
            And then these two nice guy bombers need to go go go on 4 ball.
            It seems Champ-Finau have a way to win even putting slightly below average.

            I would be SHOCKED if a guy ranked 200th in Strokes Gained Putting was on a winning team in this thing!
