Former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher will be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame on Saturday. Before being enshrined in Canton, Ohio, the golf enthusiast joined Golf Channel’s George Savaricas and Ryan Griffiths on the Pro-Am Pod.
The fellas debated hair vs. no hair for Urlacher’s bust … “Definitely going bald,” Urlacher said. They also discussed the celebrity golf tour, his obsession with the sport and what it would be like with Rory McIlroy lining up in the I-formation.
Urlacher also laid a little smack down on two-time U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka: “I met him last year at the BMW Championship and I was surprised how big he wasn’t … let’s just say that.”
