    I'm more concerned that he couldn't name 6 professional women golfers. He represents Callaway and is supposed to be an Ambassador for the company and for the game.

    Clay Travis often takes the common sense view on topics, and I agree with him here. I think most of the objection to Haney's comments amount to virtue signaling to the world how inclusive and egalitarian you are. Some people say that Haney shouldn't have said it because of his stature in the game. To me he's just a swing coach. I've never seen him as having any kind of elder statesman cache, but I could be wrong. If Jack had said, it would've been rude (still not racist or sexist).

    I think, considering his current position, he was a little blasÚ with his comments but I doubt he was being racist / sexist with his comments. I think he was just trying to be glib!!

    This is my take. His comments on Korean golfers is so cliche and unoriginal I look past it. His willingness to admit to the fact he knows nothing about the LPGA however is inexcusable.

    The best part of the article linked (despite many not reading it) in the first post is that Brennan hasn't written a single piece on the LPGA.

    No, he's being paid to host a radio show that gets ratings. There's a reason that national sports talk shows only focus on the Dallas Cowboys, LeBron James, Tiger Woods, etc. Because that is what people want to hear. I'm guessing he doesn't know much about the Web.com Tour either. He's not Mike Tirico.

    Because he has a talk show about professional golf, and is a brand ambassador for a brand that currently sponsors 10 or so women on the LPGA.

    She is clearly out of her mind with what she is demanding but that doesn't also mean that Haney shouldn't be taken to task for being an asshole.

    ****, even Tiger said he got what was coming to him.
