Former Tiger Golfer, TV's Bret Baier '92, Competes in AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am

February 18, 2013

"I can speak to millions and millions of people when the red light on the camera goes on. But when you have to physically perform and turn on a little white ball, it's a different matter entirely," says Fox News Channel's Bret Baier, who competed in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am earlier this month.

The anchor of Special Report with Bret Baier, a 1992 graduate of DePauw University, talked with Golfweek about his experience at the tournament, where he was paired with pro Todd Hamilton. "People don't realize how good these pros are sometimes. They are really spectacular. The way they can control a ball flight, the things they can do to make the ball move -- it's pretty amazing. I played college golf -- Division III at DePauw University -- but I have the ultimate respect for these guys who are grinding out here week after week and trying to make it."
