01/30/2005: From the Files Of: Better Late Than Never
Now...for the Much Awaited (and promised GOLF NEWS SCOOP) brought to you by Bob Verdi (Golf World) in his article "Whispering sweet warnings":
Ever wonder just what Nick Faldo whispered in Greg (The Shark...and this is a shark you may post pictures of) Norman's ear when he beat him during the 1996 Masters tourney? For you golf trivia folks, Faldo carried off a stunning come-from-behind victory after beginning the Sunday final round six shots behind Norman to overtaking him and winning by five shots during the event.
Eight years (and just a tad late) Faldo has revealed this startling content of his comment in his book, Life Swings:
"DON'T LET THE BASTARDS GET YOU DOWN OVER THIS."
Faldo revealed...but followed up with this "mea culpa" of current guilt, "There I was warning Greg about the media. And now what am I? I am the media."
At least Faldo has some concerns about this new profession he's joined..and here's hoping he won't take a "shark bite" out of any of his former colleagues when he reports on them as a golf broadcaster.
