Localknowledge_rory_3

Rory Sabbatini has become a media favorite in the past few months, mostly because he's not afraid to tell it like it is. During his sit-down in the interview room yesterday at the Deutsche Bank Championship, outside Boston, Sabbatini addressed:

  1. His latest confrontation with a fan. ("Say it to my face, buddy.")

  2. How the media has paraphrased his statements to their liking and put a very bitter taste in his mouth

  3. Why, unlike some players, he speaks his mind.

  4. What he really thinks about Tiger.

  5. Who he'd choose to take on Tiger in the Presidents Cup singles match if he were captain Gary Player.

Check out his transcript here.

And while you're it, don't miss what Jack Nicklaus had to say about Sabbatini, and who Jack identified as the one guy who riled him up by running his mouth back in the '60s.
