Phil knocks off the “rust,” a Latin America Am story, and a PGA West Flashback Friday
Brendan and Andy close out the week with a review of all the golf from across the globe. They cover Phil Mickelson’s 2019 debut and some of the fascinating less heralded stories on the Desert Classic leaderboard. Then they whip around from Westy’s work in Abu Dhabi to the Singapore Open and back to the LPGA’s celebrity event in Orlando. Andy goes into the archives for a Flashback Friday on the debut of PGA West at the 1987 Bob Hope and the revolt of angry players against the Pete Dye design. Brendan then relays a story from a listener and former Latin America Amateur contestant from the United States who became a Dominican citizen over one weekend to get into the field. They also discuss the latest from Matt Kuchar’s tipping travesty and comments from Fred Ridley on the how the Masters plans to operate within the new rules.
