Rory, Big Shot Bob, and an all-time coffee golf Scottish Open, plus Barbasol delights
Andy and Brendan are worse for the wear but absolutely alive for this Monday episode recapping one of the great finishes to a tournament in some time. They discuss Rory McIlroy’s birdie-birdie close to edge an astounding 64 from Scotland’s own Bobby Mac at the Scottish Open. This discussion goes in myriad directions on Rory, Bobby, and how wind makes the best in the world have to actually think. They ponder how much better of a player Rory is now compared to past more one-dimensional days, a potential world-tour with a combo leaderboard like this, and the decision to move tee times up and the coverage maze it wrought. At the Barbasol, Andy is absolutely giddy about the barf-fest down the stretch but happy with The Candy Man getting the win. They also discuss Steve Stricker’s dominance on the Social Security tour, the “spread” at Firestone, and a wild penalty for Lydia Ko at the Dana Open.
