I've got Sneds and Matt Kuchar.
...and how does Phil have "a great demeanor" but is "one of the biggest a-holes on the tour..." seems a little contradictory.
Here is an article where he is named one of the biggest jerks in sports. His camera demeanor makes him a fan favorite. There are lots of articles out there where his peers seem to despise him. Stuart Appleby called him a fake.
So great demeanor and a-hole on tour are not contradictory.
Glad he is nice to you.
The article says Phil doesn’t have a single friend among the players on the PGA Tour, and yet he’s one of the most popular players with the fans. How can we explain the contradiction?
To understand in the most efficient way, I went back to Jennifer Mario’s column on author John Feinstein. The author of “A Good Walk Spoiled” nails Phil’s personality with two words: Eddie Haskell.
Readers of a certain age will recall that in the late 1950s and early 60s, Eddie was a supporting character in the popular TV series “Leave it to Beaver.” Eddie was the funniest character on the show, probably because he was an archetype that everyone in the television audience instantly recognized from their own lives. He was that snooty little brat we all loved to hate. An unctuous brown-noser when the parents were around, he showed his true self – sarcastic, mean, conniving and self-congratulatory – when only kids were present.
Eddie was so vivid in his phoniness that Ken Osmond, the actor who played Eddie, never had much of a career after the series was canceled and ended up working as a cop. Nobody could look at the guy without thinking of Eddie Haskell. By the time he’d reached middle age Osmond was consigned to autograph shows and B-movies like “Dead Women in Lingerie” (1991). Hope nothing like that happens to Phil.
