Rollback blowback, Rahm rumblings, Tiger’s return, and the Mule Uprising
Whew, what a weekend from the golf content gods! Andy and Brendan come primed and ready for this Monday episode, beginning with the report in Golf Digest that the governing bodies are now considering a universal rollback of the golf ball as opposed to just a local rule for elite pros. They discuss the many player reactions to this news, from the hysterical quotes from some of the pros down at the Hero to Rory’s return to tweeting and Tiger’s reiterated takes. They discuss what the rollback might actually mean and where the USGA might have failed to control the release of this update over the weekend. Then they get to some of Tiger’s play in the Bahamas as well as the Collin Morikawa two-shot penalty that Matt Fitzpatrick called out to an official, who ticked off Morikawa by showing up “five minutes late” to their meeting. The continued rumors of Jon Rahm going to LIV are also covered, with the potential for that becoming a reality as soon as Monday? Will he be a Cleek? The back half discusses an anonymous memo to PGA Tour membership and some truly insane Chris Stroud comments about the players not having a voice or being taken care of on Tour.
