Rickie hangs on, Sergio snaps in Saudi Arabia, and another rules fiasco
Brendan and Andy return from the weekend and the content bounty is plentiful. They react first to Rickie Fowler’s win at the Phoenix Open, where he hung on during a day of ugly play all over the course. They assess what it might mean for the future and whether his underwhelming play on Sunday does anything to bury the narrative that he has trouble closing. Then they get to Sergio Garcia’s shameful weekend in Saudi Arabia, where he damaged at least five greens during a temper tantrum unprecedented at the highest pro level. They discuss what the punishment should be for Sergio and why the tapes and story have been buried. Other topics hit are Pat Reed’s bizarre honorary lifetime membership from the European Tour, the alignment rule fiasco and the rescinding of Denny McCarthy’s penalty, and Johnny Miller’s farewell broadcast.
