Phil’s tedious LIV team, Bubba’s offseason moves, and the glorious return of DLF
This Wednesday episode begins with some important decisions and marital kerfuffles on the home improvement scene. Then Brendan and Andy get to the final announcement of the LIV teams, with some incredulous words for the way Phil Mickelson is spending some of the sunset days of his career. Conversely, there’s great admiration and surprise for Captain Bubba’s team-building philosophies. News of tape-delayed coverage on the CW is also discussed, and whether that matters for overall numbers. They also discuss the dog portraits that players are receiving in Mayakoba. The stinky Honda Classic field is previewed within the context of how something like this now fits in the Designated era. They get into some of the also-ran names, but also highlight the potential for a youth movement. Then it’s on to the event of the week, the great DLF’s return to the Euro Tour for the Indian Open. They read some excerpts on the course and marvel at its so-bad-it’s-good abilities. News hits on the R&A changing some Open exemptions and Sam Bennett’s choice to skip Riviera, which leads to an extremely cool story about Stephen Curry.
