A strong 👎🏻 from me. Not every former pro golfer can be an analyst. He’s in that group.

Married to Callaway Clubs but I cheat with Nike Clubs on occasion.

Strong thumbs up from me and there's already an RDD thread and too many Morning Drive threads, so thanks for starting yet another thread complaining about someone on TV.

RDD has made some good contributions on here and is one of the good guys on that show.

I don't think he's that bad but my wife cringes and it's solely because of the white hair in the middle.

I actually know a couple of guys that know he and his brother pretty well and they speak highly of them both.

He’s fine on MD. There’s about 400 things wrong with that show before you get to him. It would have to get a helluva lot better for him to be an issue.

He’s one of my favorites.  Duvall being the best.  ( although not on morning drive ).    Damron keeps it real. And can even admit freely when he’s wrong.  Great guy in my opinion.  👍

He can't Sandy - you obviously forgot Frenchy dropped out of beauty school, so nobody to work on his hair. You are not the one that he wants, lol.

Strong thumbs up for me. I really like the fact that he is someone who has actually been in the thick of the pro world. I think he lends a fresh, and more importantly, a truer perspective than any of us have.

I also really like the fact that he comes on here and engages in discussion with members here.  Sometimes there is reason for the way things are done that without him, we wouldn't have any way of knowing.

I rather like him on the PGA Tour Live broadcasts. I don't see a whole lot of him on MD but it's not like I turn the channel when he's on. To each their own but he did a good job sticking up for himself last year on this board when everybody was crushing him so at least he's got a backbone and isn't afraid to have a healthy debate with us losers.

Maybe if MD allowed the guys to debate a little more he would stand out.

Do not like RD on Morning Drive.  Seems like a nice guy, but not a fan.  The entire cast on MD needs a makeover, especially Cara Robinson.

Originally, not a fan.  Record MD every morning and zip through it at my leisure as time allows.  
I have grown to like and appreciate his wit and ability to disagree, example being with the complete Tiger-Lovefest that  the rest of that show have.

He admitted he may be proved wrong about Tiger winning again (old statement), but waited until the comeback 4.0 actually took this time.  Also, loved when he came on here to provide his info and opinion on previous MD/Golf Channel thread.

The fallacy of that argument is that since YOU didn’t play on Tour either, it doesn’t matter what happens in “your world”!
