Golf Channel Analyst Brandel Chamblee Talks on GOLF.com's Podcast

Brandel Chamblee Says Tiger, Phil Are 'Undeserving' of Ryder Captain
Golf analyst Brandel Chamblee knocked the notion of granting Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson Ryder Cup captaincy, calling them 'undeserving' of the role.

On this week’s edition of the Golf.com podcast, host Alan Bastable sits down with former PGA Tour player and current Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee to discuss everything from Chamblee’s golf game, his defeat of the late Payne Stewart in his lone PGA Tour win at the Greater Vancouver Open in 1998 and how he really feels about Tiger Woods. (You might be surprised!)

"We're on 24 hours a day, and every two to three minutes, someone turns to me and says, 'Brandel, what do you think? Why did [Tiger] do that? Why did he make that change?'" Chamblee says. "I have to have answers. I have to have some take on it. I have to have an opinion. It's my opinion that Tiger Woods changing the golf swing that won four major championships in a row and changing that body is the most bizarre thing in the history of sports. Not just golf, but sports."
