PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem has heard it all since taking over the post in 1994. This week at the Tour Championship will be his last season finale of official duty — his contract expires in early 2017 — Finchem took a page out of Jimmy Kimmel’s playbook and decided to rattle off some mean tweets about himself at his last “formal” news conference.
Here are some of the highlights:
“Any idea when Finchem will be retiring? Hopefully sooner rather than later.”
“The PGA Tour Commissioner talks like the head of an activities board at a retirement home.”
“He’s one of the finest golfers for his height.”
“The more I study this Tim Finchem transcript on the anchoring issue, the more I like Bud Selig.”
“That really hurts actually. That one hurts,” Finchem responded with a smile.
Well done, Mr. Commissioner.
