Jim Gray has been booted from Golf Channel’s coverage of the Northern Trust Open after triggering an(other) emotional confrontation with Dustin Johnson’s caddie Bobby Brown, according to CBSSports.com’s Steve Elling. Gray confronted Johnson on the back nine during live play in the first round at Riviera to question him about arriving late to his starting time and receiving a two-shot penalty, and then reported Johnson’s comments on GC’s pregame show.

By now, you’ve all heard about the scuffle between Corey Pavin and Jim Gray. I thought Pavin and Monty’s press conference was amusing enough. Then I walk a little down the hall for a few minutes and suddenly there are fingers being wagged in faces and adults acting like pre-teens. But I can’t say I wasn’t expecting something to go down. Maybe there was something in the air, but from the start, the atmosphere was ripe for drama.
On Tuesday it was reported that Corey Pavin told Golf Channel contributor Jim Gray that Tiger Woods was a lock for a Ryder Cup captain’s pick. Pavin responded on Wednesday morning with a tweet, claiming he never said such a thing.
Fight, fight, fight!
Pavin and European Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie are set to have a press conference at noon. This should be interesting on several levels, considering the rumors floating around about Monty…
U.S. Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin told Golf Channel contributor Jim Gray that Tiger Woods will make the team no matter what, either based on points or as a wild card selection. What, no THE DECISION? So much for the suspense of Sept. 7.
“Of course I’m going to [pick him]. He’s the best player in the world,” Pavin told Gray Tuesday in the Whistling Straits clubhouse.
So it looks like Jack Nicklaus isn’t going to have to order that brain scan for Pavin. But then again, maybe someone else should get Pavin one. Unless Woods reveals that he has arthritis or caught whatever Henrik Stenson has, who knows how long it will take to play like a zero handicap again?
