Faxon on D&C: Mixed reaction for Tiger

Pro golfer and NBC golf analyst Brad Faxon joined the Dennis & Callahan show from Augusta National to talk about Thursday's opening round of the Masters. Faxon talked about the warm welcome Tiger Woods received to start his round. "The crowd was appreciative," he said. "They were not too loud, but where you want them to be."

 

However, Faxon acknowledged that some fans were not as supportive of Woods, crossing their arms and refusing to applaud him. "I'm sure there are a lot of people there who are not sure how they want to welcome Tiger back," he said. "It was amazing to see some of the people who clapped for a second or didn't clap at all."

 

Asked what the reaction would be if someone in the gallery made a comment to Woods criticizing his behavior, Faxon said the person would be ejected, no matter how tame the words. "In a heartbeat," he said. "As fast as you can...
