Husky Boy-Proofing at Craig Ranch, Spieth WD, and Exemptions guessing game
This lively Wednesday episode was recorded quite early on Tuesday, but Brendan and Andy are buoyed by the promise of a three-peat for the Husky Boy. Andy is also slightly enthused by his hockey team landing the top pick for a generational talent, but more excited about the honor in one of his Illinois golfers DQ’ing himself. Then they get on to the Byron Nelson, aka Husky Boy Invitational, and what’s been done to TPC Craig Ranch following the renowned architectural trend known as the TPC Summerlin Model. Brendan also quizzes Andy on some of the two-year tour winner exemption holders at this event — what did Richy Werenski win so long ago that he’s here playing on that exemption? Schedule for the week hits on a “major” in Alabama, the Soudal Open in Antwerp, and some college golf stories. News hits on Jordan Spieth’s WD and what it means for the PGA, Sergio refusing to pay his Euro Tour fine, LIV Adelaide members angry about damage to the course, and PGA Tour U expanding its perks.
