NBC’s plan for U.S. Open, PGA Tour board fights, and In-Out-Alt

This Wednesday episode is bursting at the seams with some unsubstantiated rumors, some in-out-alternate, PGA Tour board fights, LIV exemption roulette, and some quotes from the head of NBC golf about their plans for the U.S. Open. Andy and Brendan begin there, with news that the LPGA event, where Nelly Korda goes for her sixth straight win, will be relegated to a couple hours of tape delay coverage this week is rolled out alongside an interview with NBC exec Sam Flood counter-punching recent accusations in an article about cost cutting. They discuss the interview and the four-person booth plan for the U.S. Open. They have some unsubstantiated rumors about the ongoing PGA Tour board kerfuffles which leads to an amusing game comparing those characters to the ones in Succession. Then they get to a rousing game of In-Out-Alternate to kick off schedule for the week with the inaugural Myrtle Beach Classic. At Wells Fargo, they pass along some unsubstantiated rumors about where that event might go next year with Quail Hollow hosting a PGA. They close with news of the PGA Championship handing out exemptions to Talor Gooch and a few other of his LIV compadres and what it says about future major exemptions.
