Everything about that guy’s life was someone else’s fault according to him. 

Yeah but the Golf Channel and PGA could have given him a hand up and a PGA tour card with some sponsors plus a new set of sticks and gear.  At least exemptions to play in any tourney for 2 or 3 years.  It would only be fair. 😉

Except that was Robert Allenby.  They are both Australian, so you got that going for you.

Sporting long, unwashed greasy hair and a week of unruly stubble, the sad sack of human was tossed a sportcoat and pointed to the anchor desk where he was told to sit next to Rich Lerner and "talk gol

Iggy Pop, reference in the other thread was bang on...😅

He seems like a fun guy on the vid

 

I hope he does well.  He clearly knows golf and as a fellow Aussie he deserves a run of 3 or 4 events to get his feet wet

 

Less social media BS though please .. like the tank top in the snow

Best covid era thread 😂

 

He’s married so I imagine the wife helped him cultivate the look.

I was waiting for him to break out into "Lust for Life."    " ...he's got a GTO, he's a sex machine..."

Such a judgmental group of people on here.  Cam Smith wears stupid hats, Jason Day got fat, Stuart Appleby is homeless and Erik Van Rooyen and his joggers are Exhibit A on why millennials are ruining the world.

 

Sit back, relax, enjoy the views of Pebble and have a good weekend.

You forgot that Jordan Spieth simply exists!

My first thought was that Caitlyn Jenner had decided to go back to being Bruce but then I also moved on to thinking maybe Kevin Sorbo since he's kinda sorta linked to the Pebble pro-am deal.

 

Once I realized that it was Appleby all I could rationalize was that NBC was testing us to see just how far they could go before we all start shutting down Golf Channel for forever.

I almost started this topic after seeing him earlier this week. I noticed they had him shave and wash his hair , and added bonus - he combed it , before yesterday’s show.

Just because someone has long hair? Didn’t realize this was the 50s military

This is post of the year material. Well done! 🤣

Yesterday, my wife asked me who the guy was on the right of the desk - he's ugly, hair looks dirty and sticky.  I said remember Stuart Appleby.  She said, you got to be kidding, he was a good-looking well-kept man, now he looks homeless.  LOL that was her response.  I had to agree.

 

I think he just needs a trim.   Replace hair thinning Jim Nantz with Appleby at CBS. 

 

Nantz and his Vineyard Vines clothing....some of their stuff is okay but it is way overpriced. Phony.   I am in TJ Maxx yesterday and I can buy Ralph Lauren Polo golf shirts for less than no logo Vineyard Vines on the same rack.

Who the hell would want to dress like Nantz... 😛  Never have liked him, he's kind of a wuss.

I agree - no matter what we think of Stewy's look, his wife must like it to approve it for TV

And that's all that matters, right?

 

Does "my wife picked this out for me" usually signal a cool fashion statement? 

 

It's pretty much the same as some of these 1976 styles - so he's retro cool!

I remember, way back, wife didn’t even tell me I was changing my haircut from the “parted on the side” look the the Clooney ER cut. She just made an appointment at this place and took me there. Saying no was not an option 😂

 

Great movie and best opening scene there btw

My wife is not a fan -- "he was so handsome".  And now Jordan, "he's so handsome and such a nice young man."  Thank goodness Adam Scott isn't playing this week.  I think she's sending me messages, but I never understand them.

 

Ha ha.  Huge Adam Scott fan.  Great swing, has a life outside of golf, probably would rather surf, etc etc.  He has had that same Japanese clothing sponsor forever.   Only negative is the broom handle putter.
