BOSTON (CBS) – On the latest edition of The Golf Club, Hardy gets a lesson from Stuart Cady, learns about a new golf tour and even chats with the creators of a new golf ball.
But first, golfer and analyst Sir Nick Faldo joined the program.
Faldo is down in Valhalla for the PGA Championship as a part of the CBS broadcast team, and says the course remains the same as it was during his stellar, six Major Championship-winning career.
Faldo made headlines recently by saying Tiger Woods needs to change his swing in order to prolong his career, suggesting he copy Adam Scott’s approach.
He clarified his comments with Hardy on The Golf Club.
“If you’re gonna copy anybody, Scott is not a bad guy to copy. Adam has got basically a textbook swing and has a couple of moves he does really well. Adam Scott is so balanced,” said Faldo. “That was my observation. As we know, Tiger was contorting his body a lot last week (at Bridgestone), so that was really what I was referring to. I wouldn’t deem it as criticism, more of a constructive observation.”
Faldo was known on the tour as someone with a relentless work ethic, someone who practiced and practiced until he got it right. With all the technology out there these days, Hardy wondered aloud if it’s too much of a good thing.
