Designated event fatigue beat back by Spieth-Fitz battle, Cantlay slow play, Revolts, and more
This Monday episode is a wander, with little on that electric Jordan Spieth and Matt Fitzpatrick finish at the RBC Heritage until the midpoint of the episode. Andy and Brendan begin with some thoughts on the NBA playoffs and Sacramento Kings bandwagoning vs. Northwestern bandwagoning. There’s also some chatter about a designated event coming the week after a major and whether that needs correcting. There’s some discussion on a truly insane tweet from a PGA Tour pro, Jon Rahm’s performance in the CBS booth, and other miscellany. Then they get to the Spieth-Fitz drama, and who impressed or disappointed more. Patrick Cantlay’s week of being roasted for slow play is also reviewed, with some half-hearted (or corrupted) defenses. Grace Kim’s win on the LPGA and Spencer Levin’s win on the KFT are also discussed, before news hits on some players getting in a couple pops at Rory for skipping another designated event and a LIV player complaining about not enough events.
