    To start with the Haney stuff is funny and the only statistics that one can view support his success just fine.
    A little history on Dave Pelz. He worked for NASA. His students have won over 15 majors.
    He played Big 10 college golf on scholarship. He is still a scratch golfer.

    the dude with the axe to grind keeps saying that. Every time he says "fraud" I hear the dude from Princess Bride saying inconceivable and just break off with "you keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think that it does"

    So they rearranged the schedule and moved The Paulsons up into Haney’s slot. I guess he is done there and they are just keeping it on the DL. It is funny how the news cycles churn and then all the outrage is forgotten with only the wreckage that is left behind.

    I imagine Haney was on his way out well before his controversial comments about the LPGA Tour. For the past couple of years his Sirius Radio program had deteriorated to hour long rants against the USGA , nonsense commentary about golf (for example, repeatedly telling listeners that tee ball distance is all that matters and to putt the ball from 30 yards off of the green), and relentless promotion of his own company's product (Voodoo Pain Relief Cream). Sirius should have taken Haney's microphone away from him a long time ago and just about anyone who now takes his time slot will be an improvement.

    Sadly lines have been drawn and the corporations, who used to stay out of it, have jump into the fray. ie. Dicks, Nike, NFL, etc....

    Haney was spot on and the SJWs don't like it so they destroyed him. SiriusXM, like most corporations, are spineless and located in NYC so they think the entire country thinks like NYC. Amazingly Howard Stern is their bread and butter but I guess he is untouchable.

    Breed today dipped his toe into the "equal pay" nonsense the woke scolds are crying about. If they cancel Breed I'll cancel SiriusXM.

    Breed seems like a nice guy, which is great, but I think Sirius Radio should get credible players to host the programs. Legitimate Tour pros such as Craig Stadler and John Cook are ideal golf radio show hosts.

    I like his show because its more than about the Tour. He talks just about everything golf and some outside stuff too. I'm not big into what the Tour is doing. Tour players don't get the average man. They are TV entertainment. I'd rather play and to listen to someone who is able to instruct via radio is really appealing. Additionally, his positivism is infectious. Tour stuff is on just about every other show and most of those guys put me to sleep with their monotone commentaries. Saying that, I do get the channel is "PGA Tour Radio."

    I don't consider Breed to be a competent instructor. I once asked him "Michael, do you realize how much that address technique influences and dictates the entire golf swing, and if so, why don't you and most other instructors spend more time teaching grip-posture-alignment?"
    His answer was "DG, you are absolutely right about the importance of address fundamentals , but when students are paying for a lesson they want the teacher to make the swing complicated. If we stuck to address fundamentals they would not think they are getting their moneys worth".
    Once Breed told me that I knew he was a posing as a golf instructor, not the real deal. And seeing his amateur-like hitch filled golf swing confirmed same. He is a low 80's shooter who has made a career and nice bit of money for himself by talking a good game.
    There are literally hundreds of legitimate former Tour pros out there available to take the microphone and talk about the swing, playing strategies, stories from when they played on Tour etc....I would much prefer Sirius Golf Radio hire legitimate players to talk golf, rather than giving poseurs like Haney and Breed the microphone.
