Friday at the U.S. Open: Bryson’s dreams, Dick Bland Brigade, and Torrey bunching
This Friday night episode is a debrief at the midpoint of the U.S. Open. Andy and Brendan react to Dick Bland, long an SGS notable, taking the freaking lead at a major. But has he gone too mainstream? There are some historical trends offered for why Torrey is a flawed venue but also why we may be in for an exciting sprint on the weekend. The subject of Bryson figuring out a swing fix in his dreams is debated. Is he an idiot or a genius that knows how to play the media? Or both? The Dylan Wu debacle is another exhibit in the embarrassment of having a KFT event opposite the U.S. Open. Biggest surprise nominees lead to a discussion on Matthew Wolff and Bubba, who has a truly horrendous U.S. Open record. A biggest MC disappointment discussion hits on Tony Finau, the Baton Boy, and J Kokrak.
