Jim Gray’s career continues to spiral downward, as the Golf Channel yanked him from coverage of the Northern Trust Open following an incident with a caddie Thursday. From USA Today’s Michael McCarthy:
Gray apparently got into a heated argument with golfer Dustin Johnson’s caddie Thursday. Johnson incurred a two-stroke penalty after nearly missing his tee time, a blunder Gray reported on the network’s Golf Central show. After Johnson posted a first round 73, his caddie got into a profanity-laced argument with Gray.
In August, Gray got into a heated argument with Corey Pavin (the classic, “you’re going down” line was uttered). Just a guess, but I think we’ve seen the last of Gray on the golf channel. Somewhere, Chad Curtis is laughing.
