They have strong opinions and great personalities, but unfortunately they aren't expressing themselves in 140 characters or less. Here are the people in golf we want to see on Twitter. -- By Scott Yoon Jim Nantz Nantz burst onto the golf scene with his now legendary call during Jack Nicklaus's Sunday charge at the 1986 Masters: "The Bear has come out of hibernation." The smooth cadence of his "Hello Friends" lead-in is as essential to the soul of The Masters as Dave Loggins's theme song and spray painted azaleas. Equally capable of poignant prose and groan-inducing schmaltz, we'd love to see what catchphrases he'd deliver in his 140 characters.

Jim Nantz can do a lot more than just call golf on TV.

Broadcast partner Nick Faldo tweeted a video of Nantz hitting driver on Saturday not long after their WGC-Bridgestone Invitational broadcast ended.

“On the tee, the great Jim Nantz!” says Faldo, who offers his commentary and then yells “Jason Day!” in Nantz’s backswing. But Nantz, who played on the University of Houston men’s golf team, wasn’t fazed.

“Not bad, but not terrible, right?” Nantz says after hitting the ball. “Not beautiful.”

“We are athletes,” quips Faldo, looking into the camera. Check out the video below.
