Rory the Warrior Prince, Jay Monahan surfaces, and LIV London fades out
U.S. Open week has arrived but there’s plenty to dispense with from a monumental weekend in the professional game. Andy and Brendan begin first with Rory McIlroy’s win at the Canadian Open, battling JT in front of a full-throated crowd and then taking a shot at Greg Norman on the way out of town. They praise most of the product on display, while cautioning against extrapolating anything larger from it. Jay Monahan’s appearance in the booth on CBS is critiqued, and they wonder what’s possibly next for the commish. The LIV Saturday finale is reviewed and it’s debated whether “exhibition” is the perfect term for that snoozefest finish where the only thing notable was the payout. They close by hailing Linn Grant’s dominance in a mixed event, as well as the lopsided Curtis Cup that may need to broaden the net. Lastly, the pro shop currently has a Father’s Day sale ongoing, with some new Brookline-themed polos and other merch — everything is 15% off auto-applied at checkout.
