Ryder Cup buddy system exposed, Walker Cup hat-gate, and Mafia-themed SGS Golf Advice
This Friday episode was recorded from the car that was the scene of the infamous Caves Valley audio disaster, and from a worse-for-the-wear return to the shed. But it’s a first of the month episode so Andy and Brendan are buoyant and excited for Labor Day, which is rated as a top holiday. Then they turn to some Ryder Cup clean up and the noteworthy quotes from Fred Couples that Keegan Bradley being older and not in tight with some of the younger guys on the team played a part in his not being selected. Any denial that friendships played a role in roster construction has zero worth or merit, even if that’s the proper construction process. They also discuss the Euro movements and the signs that Ludvig Aberg seems headed for a spot on Luke Donald’s team. They laugh at the Walker Cup hat uproar across the pond, but are eager to watch some great coffee golf from the Old Course. The week closes with SGS Golf Advice and an email on what to do when paired with two possibly made men who might be cheating their face off to win for your team in a charity scramble.
