From Alan Shipnuck and his golf.com Hot List:
5. Rick Reilly. My esteemed former colleague and soon-to-be ESPN star was visiting NorCal and asked me to arrange a round for us at Pebble Beach, which I happily did. (And it was comped, too.) On the appointed day, a refreshing light mist was falling, so Reilly begged off, saying he doesn't like to play in bad weather. Does the TV lifestyle make you soft? Apparently!
Now, NOBODY gets comped at Pebble Beach. So to turn that down you really have to be special...in your own mind.
