Questions about “Gold Boy”

It’s Friday and where else would Andy and Brendan begin if not for Gold Boy. That’s our sweet little mixed reality boy that came into our lives prancing around the screen on Thursday at The Players Championship. The plan was not to talk about this mixed reality stunt until late in the show, but it gobbles up the first 15 minutes or so as there are a number of questions and concerns surrounding Gold Boy, who will apparently be with us all weekend. There is actual golf talk, of course, even with minimal golf to assess after a rain-soaked Thursday. They discuss the weather for the rest of the week, the “challenge” of spin control, Pat Reed flipping off the hole, and whether there could be a good side of the draw given the forecast. Will Zalatoris’s putting stroke is also discussed. Precision Pro Flashback Friday focuses on a prior Players Championship when the wind and weather wreaked havoc on scorecards, as may happen on this Saturday, but Lanny Wadkins turned in one of the all-time performances.
