AA Podcast #32 – Dan Hicks

This week's AA Podcast is all about this weekend's Ryder Cup as we welcome Dan Hicks, who will call the weekend action from Medinah.  Dan is the play by play man for NBC's golf coverage and also called swimming at the London Olympics.  He chats with AA about calling both events and other topics including…

-The adjustments working with Rowdy Gaines and Johnny Miller.
-What makes the Ryder Cup unique from other golf tournaments.
-Tiger Woods' struggles in past Ryder Cups.
-What it would mean to see Tiger vs Rory on Sunday.
-The beginning of the Rory McIlroy Era?
-Which player is the bellwether for both sides.
-The impact of "homefield advantage" and the Chicago crowd this week.
-Why Sunday's singles is the most challenging day in sports to broadcast.
