Rahm’s OWGR angst, LIV franchise values, ‘The Next Seve’, and SGS Golf Advice
This is a fun beefy Friday episode before Thanksgiving week . Andy and Brendan begin with some thoughts on Cole Hammer’s instant success at RSM, DL3’s thumb on the scale, a new nickname for Mac Hughes, and the notion of Ryder Cup captain advice. At the CME, we get word from the ground from a friend who’s playing (and chopping at) the other Tiburon course, which is open, while the women play for their massive purse. On the Euro Tour, they discuss Rahm’s feisty comments on OWGR “fairness” for DPWT winners vs. the RSM Classic winner. There’s also an unsubstantiated rumor Friday nugget on the potential value of a LIV franchise. Flashback Friday is a husky one on Alvaro Quiros, his win in Dubai, the “Next Seve” comp, and sensation that captivated golf media for a couple years. It also leads us to an extremely amusing article on distance and equipment CEOs pooh-poohing gains with all the excitement about Alvaro’s big drives. Andy and Brendan close with another SGS Golf Advice segment reacting to some listener emails on annoying randoms, member-guest larceny, and playing a course out of order.
