It was posted here before, but worth posting again in this thread.
Brandel was imo a very good contributor to GC for a few years early on in his career. He would have these 5 minute segments talking about what certain players were struggling with, what they were doing great, and evaluating their round performances/tournament performances in an unbiased and interesting manner to the viewers. But that would quickly change.
He turned into a confrontational personality... whether it was his criticisms of Tiger (enemy #1) a handful of other players who would make it on tour later on, or even the most neutral, friendly, non-confrontational cohost Frank Nobilo. Not a lot of players on tour like him. I don't think many of his cohosts like him.
And David Duval, who knows more about how hard it is to play well at that level for any length of time, (although he tries to be respectful) obviously doesn't care much for him inwardly.
Brandel never found much success on tour as a player and was essentially a nobody in the game really. Wanted to create a schtick as being pro golf's biggest critic, thinking it would elevate his presence. And that's why he targeted Tiger imo... what a better way to elevate your brand than by being a never-ending critic of the world's greatest player all those years?
He lives to disagree. He longs to be a part of the golf media headlines, to make up for the headlines he failed to make as a player who never found a high degree of success and publicity as a touring pro. And he couldn't care less if it's his confrontational, critical style that gets him that attention.
Except sometimes it gets turned around on him. Like it did here. And I love Nobilo sitting in the middle of them, almost like he's watching a tennis match back-and-forth, not remotely interested in throwing Chamblee a lifeline. LOL... He's loving it.
