Bryson’s pin to win, Golf Channel tweaks, Gainzzz and reactions to a delightful opener
The Shotgun Start was created to go deep on all the amusing quirks and inanities that made the PGA Tour’s opening night at the Sentry Tournament of Champions so entertaining. We’re not overstating it when we say it was fantastic from start to finish. There was Bryson putting with the pin in, Gainzz going low, and a near catastrophe in the first ever in-round interview on the PGA Tour. We also discuss a bombshell of a listener question on the new rules that could render this entire season fraudulent. We also go over the disturbing evidence from the first round that promptly supported Andy’s crackpot theory from Wednesday that the PGA Tour is going to try and make The Players the “first major.” We conclude with a quick news roundup on Pat Reed’s champions dinner, Mike Davis stepping down, and a Flashback Friday to a year when Kapalua wreaked havoc on the leaderboard.
