Brad Williams Interview on PDGA.com

Check out this interview with Brad Williams on the PDGA website. I applaud the interviewer for asking a couple tough questions regarding his less-than stellar attitude and behavior. However, I find it disappointing that Brad just makes excuses and appears to show no sign of maturing. This guy is a terrible ambassador for the sport.

Best thing about the interview is him saying he won't be on the road any more.

He's just there to take the interviewer's money.

He's a great golfer, but he sounds like an arrogant tool.

Don't know the man, but his answers seemed honest and not PC...I agree with some of what he says. Should somebody be considered a bad ambassador or arrogant because he doesn't want to give his competitors a high five?????????

2 player division and he wins against an 892 opponent. I say knock the wins down by 1.

His antics go well beyond not giving people a high five. He is known as "The Texas Cactus" for a reason.

Yeah, that doesn't quite seem like a "legit" win. It is within the letter of the "rules", but not quite the spirit.

thanks to the PDGA and their data

the $10 discount was the selling point
Do you really think he said that? or did the PDGA just embellish?

WTF?
