It’s coming home...to Ernie’s masterpiece
This punchy Wednesday episode begins with a celebration of a golf achievement the likes of which we will not see again, the “Chase for 83” ending on the Minor League Golf Tour. Andy and Brendan celebrate Sunny Abacoa’s SEVENTH straight win down in the swamp to achieve even what Tiger could not. Then it’s on to the schedule of the week, which is expertly crafted for this time of year. There’s one main event, and it’s primo coffee golf that will end before football in the states. It’s also the event of the week, the BMW PGA Championship, at Ernie Els’ best design, the former Harry Colt design, historic Wentworth. Three things to watch hits on the Ryder Cup race across the pond, a galaxy brain take on how the Race to Dubai has outmaneuvered the FedEx Cup, and the Baton Boy in a foreign land. There is a history lesson on the course architect of the venue on the Champions Tour. Notables for a few other lower tour events lead to uncontrollable laughter approximating the Andy North ringtone episode. There’s a segment on Ryder Cup picks for the U.S. side — who they want/expect/would make them most mad. They close with news of Will Zalatoris being eligible for Rookie of the Year and PGA Tour University getting a new title sponsor.
