A Kitty Kat, Spieth, and Rory keep the “Designated” momentum at Bay Hill
This Monday episode is a ramble with Brendan traveling to LUPLAND and Andy battling spotty wifi, but the two react to a delightful and amusing Sunday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. They discuss Kurt Kitayama’s rise to win one of the game’s elite events, his unattractive game holding up against the likes of Spieth and Rory and Scheffler, and if Bay Hill truly delineates the best golfer from the week. There’s plenty of ammo for the “just a guy” narrative from the sketchy drop to the putting at the finish. They debate more about the new Designated formats for next year and where that would have left someone like Harris English. James Hahn’s comments are given a quick examination, with plenty of laughs but also a few points that may be somewhat valid however inarticulately told.
