Equity grants, Saudi threats, “Overrated” Spieth, and Tiger returns
It’s Friday! Here’s hoping you can get outside and enjoy some improving weather and listen to some easy tunes from revered artists like Dick Post. Andy and Brendan get to their plans for the weekend before hitting on all the latest golf news that has nothing to do with actual golf: Saudi threats of imprisonment and PGA Tour grants of equity. They ponder how this might all actually work in theory and in practice and if it starts to level the playing field at all for those who stayed and remained loyal to the PGA Tour. There’s also rumor of an “overrated” chant coming down from 16 toward one Jordan Spieth, which leads to a debate on who on LIV right now is better than him in OWGR or otherwise. News of Tiger’s return at Riv prompts a mini Flashback Friday to that one Phoenix Open he played, the one with the yips, with some context on just how BAD it got and how far he came after that. They close with some Golf Advice on an insufferable friend getting you access to great courses and another golf partner who you’d want nothing to do with if not for your wives’ friendship.
