I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

They're talking about Johnny Miller's comparison of Tiger Woods to Mike Tyson.

I understand why they brought him in, but there are so many better columnists they could've brought in. You can write this one off to Whitlock's stories on hot-button topics.

Here's hoping this is the first and last time I see him on the Golf Channel.

Do you think he's even played golf before?

Why would the Golf Channel have something as classless and fraudulant as Whitlock on..

I love the Golf Channel, but its credibitliy just took a major hit...

Whitlock himself kind of made fun of his appearance on the GC at the close of the segment. He wasn't as obnoxious as he's been on other shows. His closing, where everybody take a turn making a statement, wasn't bad, putting himself in the viewers place asking "Why is Nate Newton on the Golf Channel?". He called himself Big Sexy, but it came back to the reality that Whitlock is really more about being the news rather than reporting the news.

What does that idiot know about golf?

If he was just brought in to play the race card, I can see it, they found a generational talent at that. But as a golf analyst?
