LIV’s big weekend during a PGA Tour Pebble washout, more Rory vs. Spieth
With high winds repeatedly blowing open the shed door, and no golf on the PGA Tour, many wondered whether this Monday episode would exist. But it’s here, and Andy and Brendan discuss the PGA Tour’s weather mess at Pebble Beach, where Wyndham Clark shot a course record but no golf was played on the first football-free Sunday since August. They discuss Clark’s 60 under preferred lies and the off chance that it will be the last and final round for this edition of the Pebble Pro Am. With no PGA Tour golf, LIV had a pretty significant opportunity in its season opener and seemed to succeed in capturing the attention during a quiet sports Sunday. Did they play it perfectly? Is the product any better? Does it still feel purpose-less or do you care more now? They close with more on the disagreement between Rory and Spieth on future PIF deals and the unification of golf, with further comments coming out from McIlroy on the matter and an apparent power move of removing himself from a player group text. Is non-board member Rory hurting the process or does he have the right to speak out on his frustrations?
