A Farewell to the Match Play and a Rollback Chat with Dean Snell
At the top of our Tuesday show, Joseph LaMagna (@JosephLaMagna) calms Garrett’s fears about the state of Jordan Spieth’s game. They then talk about the PGA Tour’s WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, which will no longer exist after this year (4:59). They review Austin Country Club, the excellent venue for the tournament, and run through the various (frustrating) reasons that the Match Play fizzled out. For the next segment, Garrett brings on Dean Snell, the founder of Snell Golf as well as one of the engineering minds behind the Titleist Professional and ProV1 golf balls, to discuss the governing bodies’ new Model Local Rule from an equipment-industry perspective (29:45). Dean is, to say the least, not pro-rollback. Finally, Joseph and Garrett give their storylines to track in the golf world this week (1:09:52).
