Jay Monahan was accused by golf fans of responding pitifully when he struggled to answer an obvious question following the sensational decision to bring the PGA Tour and LIV Golf together.
We're sure you don't need reminding of the moment - almost a year ago - where Monahan joined the broadcast of the Canadian Open to blast the defectors and those who were thinking about leaving the PGA Tour for their Saudi-backed rival.
"When was the last time you had to apologise for being a member of the PGA Tour," the PGA Tour chief told Jim Nantz in a segment that was seen by some as an attempt by Monahan to emotionally blackmail elite professional golfers.
How times have changed and Monahan is now facing calls to resign. Rory McIlroy has said Monahan still has his backing despite conceding that he feels like a 'sacrificial lamb' after the incredible U-turn.
Monahan was asked for his reaction to the 9/11 Families United by saying they felt 'betrayed'.
His response was - in this writer's opinion - absolutely extraordinary.
Here is the clip:

2. Exactly what happens when there *is* no good answer to a question.
They completely brought this on themselves by bringing the 9/11 families into this a year ago.
Still stunning to see Jay this unprepared to answer a question he had to know was coming. https://t.co/olBib7skjk
