Some guy called into Breed's Radio show this morning with this question. Michael said he didnt know what was going on, although, to be honest, it kind of sounds like he did and just didnt want to say anything.

I remember when MD first started with Gary and Erik Korselius (whatever his name is). They sat at 2 desks talking about golf. Used to watch all the time. Never made the Greenberg connection.
Now it's a circus show and I don't watch it anymore.

Hope Gary comes back.  Met him one time randomly and he couldn’t have been any nicer.  I also liked the show better when it was him and Erik in the small studio.

Cara's great.

Hope Gary gets back from whatever he is up to soon.  In a little over a week it will be approximately 60 days - not saying that time period is necessarily relevant to anything and not speculating, but if he's taken a couple months off, maybe he'll be back on May Day.

Have not seen Gary the last few times I was watching.

Is he still on the GC or have I just missed him?

Thanks.
He must have left golf channel, not on the air.  Maybe NBCS has other plans for him.

Pretty sure if he had left there would have been mention.

If it's family/health/personal that's keeping him away, hope nothing but the best for him.

GC in general is so far removed from what it used be to, it's rare I tune in anymore.  Once in a while watch LPGA, but the rest is too "NBC" to be watchable....wait until J Miller joins the GC - LOL, hope not.

I like Gary. Hope he comes back soon. He was the main guy in there and for him to be gone means something went down. Aside from him and Ginella, the rest of them arent very good.

Is Gary officially gone? MD now is like Mayberry without Andy Griffith. They still have all the knuckleheads but none of the sanity.

You've got to wonder if it was a 'time out', rehab (too pumped up) or was it that he was burned out?  Definitely has less gray hair than the last appearance on GC.

He looks good and I'm glad he's back.  No yelling this time, just good clear golf talk.  Maybe they'll clean out others and improve the format.  wonder if a one-on-one again would be better, and no non-golfing personalities, please. If you can't play the game, you surely can't talk the game.  Maybe Gary and, please not Eric, he was clueless.

Maybe he was suspended from GC?  In any case it's good to have him back leading the show as it is really lacking  a person in charge. Too many people talking nonsense with no real map to follow.  Hope he does well on the show again.

A vote was taken at our gym where we have 8 television sets. The two programs NO ONE wants on these TVs are Good Morning Football and Morning Drive. The primary reasons Morning Drive has been booted, Damon Hack, Charlue Rymer, and Cara Banks. Members cannot stand this trio. My favorite comment regarding Good Morning Football: what demographic are they trying to reach?

I work the pro shop at a public course and when Gary Williams (who just came back recently) and/or Paige MacKenzie are on Morning Drive we either mute the volume or turn off MD and play instructional DVDs.   Gary always looks and sounds like Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh.  Most of the guess hosts that have been on recently are better for viewing MD.
