    That wouldn’t be fair to anyone.
    We all know that awkward reunion is already scheduled for the Ryder cup team room. Oh to be a fly in that room.

    But then again we know these two are just doing this nonsense for attention, which brooks call good for the game. If def wouldn’t be good for these two knuckleheads actual games.

      Both denied that either side had been contacted by the USGA.

        Didn’t you write about another questionable story from Faxon recently? Or am I Faxoning that? (Aka making it up)

          Probably; But Faxon didn’t hear anything directly from the USGA or either camp and first rule is you better get something from the horse’s mouth or at least the horse’s rider; Both Brooks and Bryson said in their pressers that they were not aware of such a call from the USGA.

            To be fair Faxons no journalist.
            But I’ll still take him making things up as a talking head over Jaime; the ol dog still struggles presenting basic information —especially at the majors. I know we in trouble when Diaz—whom no doubt is a good writer— is holding his notepad in front of the camera. Ironically the veteran golf writer looks like a high school or college kid giving a presentation unprepared.
            He stumbles to read his own basic words, such as what Tom Brady said to Phil. How hard is it to remember that? Todd Lewis always looks anxious as he is fumbling his simple reports.
            Faxon may make things up here and there but At least he does his broadcasting with professional confidence…which is nice.

            Bryson and Brooks both busted Faxon’s “scoop” — before I would think about putting something like that out there, I’d have to check with one of my USGA “insiders” I used to have one back in the day…..
