Corpuz cruise and Pebble problems, My Two Monahans, and Tour Policy Board upheaval
Andy and Brendan recap an eventful week in golf, but first there are some questions about the winning caddie now all of a sudden getting a trophy or award and how that is judged. This is a cause to talk about the massive weekend for Jay Monahans, one the winning caddie of the U.S. Women’s Open and the other returning from his leave of absence. They discuss Allisen Corpuz’s breakthrough win at that event, praising her and Charley Hull’s Sunday rounds. There is time dedicated to Annika’s sketchy drop on Friday night. They also discuss Pebble’s place as a steward of the game, and whether its presentation and the USGA setup this week are a good example of that. There is great delight in the Sepptic Tank rumbling his way to a John Deere win, and what it means for Sqairz coming to the Ryder Cup. News closes it out with the announcement that Monahan is coming back to be Commissioner next week, and that Randall Stephenson has resigned his spot on the PGA Tour Policy Board. They ponder a motive for that and what it means in the elbowing to get the framework settled or scuttled.
