A Well Known American Golf Commentator Has An Extremely Odd Approach To Toast

A Well Known American Golf Commentator Has An Extremely Odd Approach To Toast
By Gavin Cooney Updated

You can chalk that down as one of our favourite headlines in a while.

Many of you will recognise Jim Nantz, even if you don't recognise his name. Nantz presents the NFL on CBS, but is most renowned for being the televisual face of the Masters. It is Nantz who conducts the Butler Cabin interview in which the Masters winner thanks God for guiding him to the Green Jacket.

The Racket: 

As one of the most famous faces in the game, Nantz has conducted an utterly spectacular interview with Golf Digest. He touches on many different subjects - including his prediction for the 2019 U.S. Open and his tip for the next big player in American golf - but by far the most important part of the interview is his discussion about breakfast.

In this segment, he has revealed himself to be the American equivalent to Alan Partridge. Have a read:

I'm a breakfast guy: three eggs scrambled, with bacon and wheat toast, burnt. The problem is, it never came back burnt. For years it would arrive limp and tan, which brought breakfast to a standstill when I sent the toast back. It was costing me 10 minutes a day, which, multiplied by six days a week, is four hours a month.

That's 48 hours—two full days—per year. My friends, time is currency. My wife, Courtney, got tired of hearing me complain about it. She found a photograph on the Internet of a kitchen toaster ejecting two slices of burnt toast. She minimized it, printed it out and had it laminated. She insisted I put it in my wallet.

When I order, I present the photo to my server. I get some strange looks, but I can assure you, the toast now arrives black and scary, just the way I like it.

Incredible. Nantz's approach is reminiscent of Alan Partridge. Coogan's character has staunch opinions on breakfast - while living in a Travel Lodge, Partridge brings his own, larger plate in a bid to maximise his experience - and has put these on record:

So when you are watching the presentation from Butler's Cabin on Sunday night, fix your eyes on Jim Nantz and remember that beneath the smooth talk and the avuncular smile lies a laminated picture of some toast.
