For some reason I missed this video, even though it has nearly 380,000 views. Oh, well.
To set the stage, the “awkward reporter’s” name is Tom Gray, who’s a YouTube star in the UK, and he’s a fake reporter for a fake news media company, aptly titled Mirage Sports. In other words, he was fake news before fake news became part of the vernacular.
In the skit, Gray interviews Henrik Stenson, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler, Lee Westwood and Rafa Cabrera Bello at last year’s Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, and asks some of the most, well, awkward, questions the players have ever heard.
Here’s a look back at it one year later with some of the players picking their favorite moments.
