Kuchar speaks and makes it worse, Phil’s anti-Players stance, and Bubba’s acting career
We lead off the show marveling at the tredecuple bogey 17 made by Ben DeArmond on the Web Tour and commend him for his response to the implosion. Then we move to the Genesis Open, where we lament the decision to wipe out scores and also make it hard to watch in primetime. Andy delights in Phil Mickelson’s decision to lead the #resistance against The Players “First Major” campaign. Brendan applauds Adam Scott saying the the game is becoming a “laughingstock” from the new rules and dismisses Sergio’s hollow apology. Matt Kuchar’s quotes are given a review, and it’s not particularly kind on Mr. Kuchar or his agent’s ability to manage PR crises. Then we get to some fantastic lines from Bubba Watson, who says he’d quit golf to be an actor while also saying he’d be bad at it. We end with some amusing and memory-jogging flashback Fridays from L.A. Opens past.
