A dynamite Tour opener, Morikawa goes ‘touch ‘em all,’ and Rahm’s chase down

It was a dramatic finish to the first event of the new year on the PGA Tour, so Andy and Brendan begin with excitement over the Bears getting the No. 1 pick, allegations about fixed NFL games for name-brand franchises, and demands for a date to be set for Browns-Bears in 2023. Then they get to the drama between Jon Rahm and Collin Morikawa, and wonder if the Tour had its own fix in to appease the Champions in the field and Paradym Puppeteers. They discuss Collin’s collapse, which featured a bunker shot that had Zinger exclaiming “touch ‘em all!” The narrative shift was rapid and harsh, and they wonder what it means the next time he has a lead late in a “pressure” moment. It was a tough scene for the newly named Chip Monk. They also appreciate Rahm and a great opening weekend and product put forth by the Tour and NBC. They close with questions about Tom Hoge and TCU’s chances on Monday against Georgia.
