Rory and Rahm take Euro trophies and LPGA sponsor gets pissed
This Monday episode begins with tales of woe from a mostly losing sports weekend for both Andy and Brendan. Then they jump into the results from around the globe, beginning in Dubai with Jon Rahm winning the season-ending event on the DP World Tour and Rory McIlroy winning the season-long points race. They go through each of those players’ seasons of scant starts on the Euro Tour, compared to say, a Ryan Fox, and ask if this arrangement is sustainable. On the PGA Tour, they praise Adam Svensson for his RSM Classic win, and then get into some 4A talk. On the LPGA, they marvel at the consistency of Lydia Ko’s year and amuse in the fact that she still has more work to do to be eligible for the HOF. Then it’s on to perhaps the juiciest part of the weeknd, the CEO of the LPGA’s biggest sponsor, going OFF to Beth Ann Nichols and putting the LPGA leadership on blast. What went in to the public lashing out and does it spell trouble for the LPGA?
