    He really doesn’t get it.

    At any rate, I love golf still, and, outside of Tiger, it's lost a lot of cachet in America. Costs too much to play, takes too long to watch, and exactly one guy - Tiger - could pull off the stoic thing that Koepka fails to make work for his personality.

    And I freely admit I don't know much about women's golf. Haney should. It's his job. I don't.

    I can tell you who's good in college softball though. That's a hell of a show.

    On Brennan’s column: Suggesting that any golf course that allows Haney to play a round - set foot even - there is sending some message to women about their unimportance is a stretch.

    I’m not sure what is accomplished by that sentence. And I’m not sure why an editor can’t delete it.

    This reminds me a bit of when Hank Williams went “heel” re: his comments/stance on Obama... got pulled off MNF intro, hit up Fox News a bit. His career died down and he laid low, a few years later he’s back doing the MNF intro.

    Typical Brennan overreaction line.

    Yes, but unless she has her own posting capabilities, that’s a line you edit out.

    Other sports talk channels should take a look at Haney for sure. But on a channel called "PGA Tour Radio," I'd say he definitely cooked himself after calling out Tiger (though as Alma said, he wasn't wrong).

    Sure, but you're assuming there are still copy editors in the mix.
