Finally, some much needed Champions Tour controversy as Tom Lehman defends last weekend's chest-bump-gone-awry with Bernhard Langer, the whitest thing anyone has seen since Golf Digest unveiled their final four candidates for the Bethpage Break 100 deal.
(Incidentally, they name the whitest man in American on NBC Saturday, during coverage of the whitest sporting event in America, the Kentucky Derby.)
Lehman, with no choice but to speak out:
One thing that many people have not forgotten yet from my win is the chest bump that Langer and I attempted. I got all kinds teasing about that and probably can't repeat a lot of it. People have asked "What was that?" or "You'll have to work on that one" or "Chest bumps been outlawed forever in all future Champions Tour events". I've gotten a number of comments. But stuff like that is good for golf. Whether you think it looks stupid or cool, whether its semi appropriate or not, it gives flair and emotion to a game that can be lacking in that. When people that I know are all talking about it, it's interesting and gives them something to talk about. That puts golfers in a new light, where at least it's not just tipping your cap, nodding, saying thank you.
Can't argue with that.
