Boarding the Riviera hype train, Phil and Sergio apologize, and Kuchar’s big mess
The best event on the PGA Tour schedule gives Andy and Brendan the occasion to swoon about Riviera and the field for the Genesis Open. They re-hash their experience walking inside the ropes last year at the Genesis and Andy breaks down some of the best holes and features of this top venue. Then they review some of the featured groups for this week, giving Andy the opportunity to question Cam Champ’s profile alongside some of the more established stars and Hall-of-Famers. A news segment (that becomes a debate) focuses on the report from Michael Bamberger confirming the paltry sum Matt Kuchar paid to his local caddie, El Tucan, after winning $1.3 million at Mayakoba. They also hit on Sergio re-emerging to public life with an apology before wrapping with the weekly Paulie’s Picks segment from @FriedEggPaulie.
