You want bold? Let’s go to DL3 at 16!
“Tiger will become the No. 1 player in the world again,” the new CBS golf analyst said the other day.
To do that, as it stands right now, Woods would need to leapfrog Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka. And that’s what Davis Love predicts will happen.
NBC has the ultimate course whisperer, Mr. Roger Maltbie. But Davis M. Love 3d is going to be, in his own way, a font of golfing insight in his new gig. To be good at it, all he has to do is be the same person with a microphone under his chin as he is with a dinner plate beneath it.
This is coming to you from one of his many friends in the game, so keep that in mind. But for almost 30 years now, I have been astounded by Davis’ insights into golfers, golf courses, fan behavior, Tour politics, caddie-player relationships, instruction and instructors, the swing under pressure and virtually every other subject related to the game in which he was raised. The job of his new bosses (easier to type than to do) is to find a way to let Davis be Davis.
