#JustWaitForJeddah, Hideki’s loyalty to the Tour, and LIV toys with a cut

It’s another *Thursday* episode, with Andy on the road for the big Bears-Commanders national TV game. He and Brendan begin with an amusing note from the Pres Cup, where fans dressed up as Canadian mounties may have heckled a certain Town Crier. Then they get to the idea of LIV instituting a cut, of just three players, and what it says about the desperation for OWGR points and whimsical changes. They discuss the Zozo Championship, where Hideki Matsuyama reiterated his commitment to PGA Tour membership. News hits on the return of the International Crown, Jon Rahm’s Ryder Cup comments and Sergio’s abdication, and Tony Romo playing his way into a USGA championship. A quick Flashback Friday centers on Isao Aoki and another geopolitical drama that ensued when he committed to play in South Africa.
