    I'm so over this politically correct world we live in today!! All it takes is one feeling to be hurt and all hell breaks loose.

    But it is the world we live in now so People have to be aware of their comments and actions before spoken or done.

I learned that the hard way changing career paths. I think the outrage is way overblown, but people say he was dismissive, or making a lame terrible joke in an asshole manner aren't wrong.

    He didn't downplay them. He downplayed his interest in the tour, not the tour in general and certainly didn't downplay any Korean players.
    Genuine question. Did you listen to the show?

    I can understand it being a problem for others, for me it is not. He's entitled to his opinion just as anyone else is.

    He should've known better, imo, just as Tiger should know better to offer an opinion on this matter. But I see both as harmless really and disagree with the uproar.

    Why does Haney have a show on Sirius as opposed to, say, Butch Harmon or Sean Foley? Could it be because Haney is in fact opinionated? I don't know; just asking.

    One more interesting tidbit that is lost in this whole thing.
    The channel Hank Haney is on is called PGA Tour Radio.
    He is supposed to speak to the PGA Tour, their players, their tournaments and the rest of his expertise.

    I listened to about 5 minutes of it when the whole thing came out. I wanted context of it not just the 30 seconds of it. His tone to me was like ohh really they have a big tournament didn't even know. He was flippant about the whole thing, and USA Today and others took it way out of line.

    He should have a cursory knowledge of the top 5 or so players on the LPGA, PGA, and Champions tour and know when their majors are at least. He just was like who cares, not even worth knowing about and some Korean named Lee. I am not outraged by it or even really care because I am not a fan of his, but he basically was like they aren't even worth knowing about and that is downplaying the whole tour to me at least.

    So then that channel would only host PGA content then correct? They don't though they have hosts talk about growing the game, game improvement, interviews with tournament players from not just the PGA tour but Web, Champions, LPGA. It doesn't hold up on that end.

    Why should he have knowledge of a subject that he is not instructed or normally necessary to speak on? He is on PGA Tour Radio, hired to discuss that tour, it's players, the courses and the golf swing. All of which he does rather well. And I say all of this as someone that is not a Haney fan at all.

    He was asked about a subject that he doesn't care about and said so. While I think he could have worded it better, there is nothing he said that should have been a trigger for what has come. Not even remotely close.

    Perfectly outlined in the article in the 1st post is that Brennan went on a crusade about female golf and sexism and she hasn't written a single piece on the LPGA or players all year long including leading up to this hugely important event as it has been called.

    If that is the case why was the LPGA even brought up then on his show. Should have just stuck to the PGA tour talk.

    Ben Weinrib of Yahoo Sports is a dishonest hack.

    Hank Haney doubles down on racist remark, saying prediction was 'based on statistics and facts'

    Golf commentator and swing coach Hank Haney was suspended last week for his racist and sexist comments about the LPGA, but he’s making it clear his apologies have not been sincere.
    Opinion stated as fact.

    After initially making comments on his SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio show belittling...Korean golfers...
    ...by picking a Korean to win.

    Again I agree USA Today was way out of line. He could have simply stated I don't know or worded it in a way that didn't come off the way it did, he could have even said that isn't the purpose of this show. Instead he made some off the cuff stupid joke and it fell flat and came off like an ass.
