It appears FIGJAM isn’t just fake, he’s wacky. He thinks time travel is a real possibility. No, seriously. At least that’s what a source told me — who heard it via Brandt Snedeker.
In 2004 Snedeker was still an amateur and qualified for the Masters by winning the US Amateur Public Links the year prior. He was psyched when he had the opportunity to play a practice round at Augusta with Davis Love III, who was super nice and made a real effort to reach out to him.
The day only got more exciting. Afterwards, Sneakers was having lunch and FIGJAM randomly asked if he could sit with him. Obviously he was thrilled — first, a practice round with Davis, and now, lunch with Phil.
Then Davis walked by and said something like, “Phil, why don’t you tell Brandt about time travel?” FIGJAM launched into a half-hour spiel about how he thought time travel was within the bounds of possibility — supposedly words like “warps in the universe” and “black holes” were a part of the discussion. Sneakers was a tad unnerved, not to mention bewildered. He ran into Davis in the locker room and asked what the heck was that about (in so many words). Davis told him he wasn’t the first to hear FIGJAM’s theory on time travel.
True story. So, there you have it. Marty McFly…oops, I mean, FIGJAM.
