Grow the game week
This bubbly Wednesday episode begins with delight of a 2/2/22 recording. There’s ample talk about the Pebble Beach Pro Am, which is wounded but not dead. There’s a simple suggestion for improving Spyglass, and an amazing reader email on the winding path to Ryuji Imada getting in this field with just one start in an OWGR event in the past five years. There are two candidates for catnip call of the week, one of which focuses on an old friend of the program. Then they discuss the big Asian Tour event in Saudi Arabia, reacting to Greg Norman’s comments and the still dearth of details on an upcoming schedule. News focuses on Ian Poulter reportedly getting a big offer from the Saudis, and the common thread between both the people behind this effort and the players we’ve heard are interested so far. There’s also a fun story about home building at the site of a course just announced as a host venue for two USGA championships.
