Last Week the Daily Mail published an article in which Paul Azinger, the U.S. Ryder Cup captain, was quoted as saying of his European counterpart, Nick Faldo: "If you’re going to be a p***k and everyone hates you, why do you think that just
because you’re trying to be cute and funny on air now that the same people are
all going to start to like you?
"The bottom line is that the players from his generation and mine really
don’t want to have anything to do with him."
Soon after it was printed, Azinger spoke with SI’s Gary Van Sickle to clarify the matter, saying that the quotes were distorted and inaccurate.
Now, the Daily Mail has released the text and audio from the interview online. Were the quotes taken out of context? You decide. Hear what Azinger said during the interview on dailymail.co.uk (Photo: Brian Bohannon/AP)
