Honda down and out, and Brad Faxon chats the PGA Tour of the past (and putting)
This Wednesday episode begins with The Town Crier making some official proclamations about Phil Mickelson and his potential Ryder Cup captaincy future. Then it’s on to the schedule for the week, where Andy and Brendan discuss the struggling Honda Classic as one of the “have-nots” in this stretch of the schedule on the PGA Tour. Then Brad Faxon joins us for a wide-ranging chat from the B. Draddy bungalow in Jupiter with the Tour in town ahead of the Honda. Faxon discusses some of the best shots, players, and skills of his era on the PGA Tour, from Corey Pavin to Tiger Woods, and how the game has evolved since then. There’s also ample discussion on putting, the outlawing of greens reading books, and whether armlock putting should be banned too. (This episode was recorded jussst before Phil’s meandering apology, which will get a full accounting on Friday).
