Do you blame him?  What Faldo did to Norman at Augusta still wakes Greg up at night in a cold sweat.

Glossed over eyes, droopy eyelids, closes eyes for seconds at a time, really subdued talking. I mean I could definitely be wrong, but I wouldn't be surprised. That's why I asked when it was filmed. The show is from '16, and his pill habit was pretty well documented.

I liked hearing Tiger's perspective on the differences between playing links style golf compared to playing in America.  Makes me appreciate The Open more.
