Matt Kuchar’s wild weekend and Jay Rigdon on golf’s TV coverage
Andy and Brendan are both finally settled at home and ready to review a weekend of perfectly normal news from the PGA Tour. They discuss Matt Kuchar’s win at the Sony Open, where he falls in the always evolving “best never to win a major” list, and a few other takeaways from the leaderboard. Then they get to bigger news that engulfed Kuchar over the weekend, with rumors that he stiffed his local caddie with just $3k from a $1.3 million winner’s payout at the Mayakoba Classic. Are Tom Gillis and Kip Henley golf’s version of Woodward & Bernstein? Is this fake news? If true, how shitty of a move was it? They also discuss the collapse of Stephen Curry’s event in the Bay Area. Then they get to Jay Rigdon of Awful Announcing for an interview on how the broadcasts of golf have improved, where they’re still lacking, dream and nightmare broadcast teams, and what he’d like to see change in 2019.
