The Drive Thursday 5-2-13 - Jim Nantz talks with the guys from The Drive about what he thinks of first when he thinks of Quail Hollow, we get his thoughts on the condition of the greens and the fact that players are withdrawing from the tournament because of it, and whether or not he sees Tiger Woods winning another major this year.
The 5 time best Sportscaster of the Year talks with Taylor and Marc first about what he thinks of when he thinks of Quail Hollow.
“It just has such a big presence about it. It feels like its something very very special.”
“It gets the juices flowing for me and I know the players feel the same way”
This weeks big story about the tournament is the condition of some of the greens at Quail Hollow Jim hasn’t gotten to Charlotte yet but we get his thoughts on the fact that some players have withdrawn because of it.
“I watched the coverage but I haven’t really thought about it”
“These guys are spoiled…yeah they aren’t as good as they’ve been in the past everyone knows that. But once the tournament starts they’re all playing the same course”
Tiger hasn’t won a major in close to 5 years so we get Jim’s thought on when and where Tiger will get another Major win.
“The quality of contenders for major titles I think is better now than when Tiger was winning 7 out of 11. But yes, he’s close, he’s winning tour events, he’s won 3 this year.
“There’s no way that he’s not going to win another one. I’m not buying that argument”
