I couldn’t figure out where he was until I read a story on Waggleroom that said his contract negotiations went sour. What? He was the best they had! How could they just stop talking to him when everyone who watches The Golf Channel loves him?
According to Golf World…(and shared by Waggleroom)…
What a disappointment! Vince was good – on both the 19th Hole and the Big Break. I’m sorry, Mr. Rick Schwartz, but you aren’t Vince (yet) and you just didn’t quite bring that maturity and “statesman voice” to the Big Break Series. It wasn’t the same without VC.
I’m so glad to see him back. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been less than happy with the new media folks they’ve brought to the GC. As my golfguy says, “The GC management needs some adult supervision – they need to figure out what works and build on that. Don’t get cocky with success and believe that YOU “know what’s best”. Lesson 101 of marketing…give your customers what they want, NOT what you want to shove down their throats!”
So…we’ve got Vince back. Thank goodness. Soon, Kelly Tilghman too… (okay…so some folks would disagree, but that’s what makes life so much fun! We can agree to disagree and still be golf buddies :))
Speaking of buddies…what about our good buddy, Charles Davis? Where’s he been lately?
Are we going to see him again on the 19th hole anytime soon? I sure hope so. I miss his intelligence (not to mention his good looks – grin). And he’s such a gentleman to boot. Okay…he’s a hottie…;)
I don’t even watch that show anymore…the analysts they have now are just too boring for words! It’s like they just want to hear themselves talk!
So….welcome back Vince! We’ve missed you. And Charles…come back soon so I can fill my Wednesday evenings with more than writing my next blog posting.
