The Ultimate In Name-Dropping at the Masters?

Thursday, April 9, 2009 , Posted by Christopher Byrne at 2:07 PM, under , , , , , ,

There was some big-time subtlety in name-dropping today during the online Amen Corner coverage from The Masters. The commentators were talking about current co-leader Chad Campbell (-5 through 7). For some reason, Ian Eagle pulled out the obscure trivia that Campbell's older brother Mike is the head golf coach at Abilene Christian University.

There was a hidden reason, perhaps. Lance Barrow, the coordinating producer for golf on CBS Sports (pictured right), is a graduate of Abilene Christian. Not only that, Barrow sits on the board of trustees. How's that for getting a connected plug on the air?

Update (6:42 PM ET): Verne Lundquist just made the same reference on ESPN, and Campbell has been done playing for a while.
