Is getting to World No. 1 now equivalent to a major, and Tiger walks
This Monday episode begins with reaction to the WGC Match Play finale, where Scottie Scheffler ascended to OWGR No. 1. Andy and Brendan consider whether this achievement, in light of Scheffler’s emotional reaction, has gained stature approaching a major win among younger players. They discuss several other match play quibbles and delights from the weekend in Austin, including Kevin Kisner’s ability to compete at a place where he can use the slopes. Masters Fact of the Day hits on the time a patron jumped in the pond at the 16th hole, and also a story about Andy bringing some Elijah Craig bourbon on a flight with him this weekend. News is more story time, with tales of a Euro Tour robbery on the road in South Africa and listeners putting “Zatch” to use out in the real world. They close with rumblings of Tiger walking rounds out at Medalist this past week and what it might mean for a competitive start in April.
