Jim Gray, apparently employed as a free-lance question asker for Golf Channel this weekend, had a sit-down with President Clinton on Tuesday, which the network will air today when it begins its Presidents Cup coverage at 12:30 p.m.
The Golf Channel’s press release says “the former president spoke openly to Gray on a variety of topics ….”
Wait for it …
“Related to this week’s competition and golf in general. The interview will air in three, 10-minute segments and will cover why The Presidents Cup is important to him, the history of golf in the White House, including Presidents Roosevelt, Kennedy and Ford, the current state of his golf game, the current economic climate in golf, Tiger Woods’ impact on and off the golf course, the impact golf will have in the Olympics should it be voted in for 2016, his relationship with Arnold Palmer and Palmer receiving the Congressional Medal of Honor and his dream foursome on the golf course.”
So no where in this will a producer be in Jim Gray’s ear yelling at him: Make him apologize for betting on baseball.
Nor did Mr. President inquire about how Mr. Gray got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The coverage from Harding Park GC in San Francisco starts with the announcement of Thursday’s foursomes matches. Kelly Tilghman will be there. President Clinton probably already knows that.
