Elevated events elected and the Saudi golf guy says he’ll create his own majors
This Wednesday episode begins with some fun stories about airplane travel. Then Andy and Brendan get to the CJ Cup, where a great field will play at Congaree. They express enthusiasm for this rare fall windfall but lament some lack of creativity. This leads to a discussion on the news of the PGA Tour’s four new elevated events — what’s good and what’s a miss with this new reworked schedule for 2023 and what needs to be better for the years that follow? There’s a sidebar discussion on an amusing interview with the head of the champions tour. The last segment reacts to the New Yorker article and the head of Golf Saudi saying he will just create his own majors if they don’t let in his players.
