Anxious about Augusta takes, AK vs. Bryson LIV quotes, and ANWA slow play

It’s Friday! And the one before Masters week at that, which has both Andy and Brendan feeling a bit of anxiety or regret about some corners they’ve staked out relative to that major championship. They ramble around on that and the news that Rory McIlroy saw Butch Harmon, JT has split up with Bones, and another “global superstar” is looking for a mental coach. At Valero, they discuss Rory looking burly, Spieth’s quotes about his scores not reflecting his quality of play, and the crowd in Charley Hoffman t-shirts. At the Augusta National Women’s Amateur, they discuss the slow play penalty that knocked a former champion to the wrong side of the cut line and if that example will be made the next week with the men’s pros. There’s also news of a scoring kerfuffle. The back half of the podcast covers a bevy of quotes coming from LIV, beginning with some refreshing clarity and honesty from Anthony Kim about where he’s been, his struggles, not knowing who won any majors since he’s been gone, and how forgiving equipment now is compared to when he left. They also discuss Bryson’s urgent plea that the game must be brought back together and Phil’s similar quotes on disruption.
