SI’s Gary Van Sickle caught up with Hank Haney on Monday to ask him about last night’s season finale of The Haney Project. Of course they talked about Rush and the significant improvements he’s made over the course of this season, but the great quote from Hank came when he was asked about Charles Barkley’s swing:
He is physically able to, he isn’t mentally able to. It’s bizarre when somebody shoots less than 50 percent from the foul line, it’s bizarre when Chuck Knobloch can’t throw it to first base, it’s bizarre when Rick Ankiel throws 18 pitches in a row to the backstop. But it happens.
Not content to let Johnny Miller’s on-air comments drop after Brad Faxon’s prank a couple of days ago, Ian Poulter thought that posting a link to his European tour leading GIR stats on Twitter would prove that he IS a good ballstriker. In reality, it just makes him look thin-skinned. Who cares what Johnny Miller thinks… You’re a top-caliber player on the best golf tour in the world. You make more money with a single win than Miller ever did in an entire season.
Thankfully, Brad Faxon stepped back in with a little reality check for Poulter (along with a nice dig at Miller):
Enter Brad Faxon. He saw an opportunity for comedic gold and seized it with gusto. He sent Poulter the hat shown above, pretending to be Miller. Immediately the interwebz were buzzing with talk of Miller and Poulter and a simmering feud.
