New Commish Likes Tiger's Energy And "Countenances"

Look, he just spent the last two years as Tim Finchem's fixer. We're talking about a now-retired Commish who probably wears a blue blazer and grey slacks in lieu of pajamas and who speaks in lawyerly jargon like few others. So it'll take time for Jay Monahan to flush a few of these out of the system.

Speaking about Tiger's comeback to Rich Lerner in an interview set to air on Monday's Golf Central and Tuesday's Morning Drive, this preview quote had me running for a dictionary:

“I don’t think it’s just the performance he had at the Hero World Challenge,” Monahan said. “I think the way his energy, his countenances ... the joy that he had that week lends itself for all of us.

“It’s very exciting to think about what he could potentially accomplish in the coming weeks.”
