The man who never quit
The topic came up because Henley and Langley played together in their rookie debut on the PGA Tour. Walking up the 16th fairway, with the Pacific Ocean behind them and a television tower off to the side, they began chatting about where they were at time last year.
They were at a Hooters Tour event in Florida. Henley had missed the cut, and Langley was a second set of eyes as he tried to figure out what was wrong with his swing. Langley, meanwhile, was telling stories about going through a slump in 2010, and how Henley always came over and offered help.
“I don’t know everybody out here on the PGA Tour, but you don’t come across a lot of guys who really get it and play the game the way I think it should be played,” Henley said. “I think when you get guys who are selfless, that’s a really cool thing. I try to be that way. I’m probably not always like that. … It’s really cool, that side of the game, because that would never happen in any other sport. You’d never see Federer help Nadal with his backhand _ or I don’t think you would.
“That’s why I love the game so much,” Henley said. “I love the competition, but also love how you can be the guy’s best friend.”
The PGA Tour asks rookies to fill out a questionnaire with some offbeat questions so fans can know a little more about them than where they went to college and how they reached the tour.
Here’s a sampling:
_ Derek Ernst says he would be a rock star if he didn’t play golf for a living. And as a reminder that we’re in the next generation, his dream foursome would include Arnold Palmer, Rory McIlroy and Tim Tebow.
_ Paul Haley II played baseball in the sixth grade on the same team as former Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw and Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.
_ Robert Streb has on his bucket list going to an Oklahoma-Texas game. He went to Kansas State. Then again, he grew up in Oklahoma and used to play hockey with St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford.
_ Henrik Norlander is from Sweden and played for Augusta State. His dream foursome would include Pete Sampras, Roger Federer and Johnny Cash.
