Saturday at the PGA: Mito hangs on, Rory abdicates, and Tiger WDs

This Saturday night episode begins with an apology for our horrible Contender/Pretender predictions, a simply unacceptable performance for a gambling podcast. Then it’s on to the breaking news of Tiger Woods’s withdrawal, and the uninformed takes that will flow from it. They react to the third round as well, giving Mito his due for balling out and assessing his chances for Sunday. There’s some critical intel on Matt Fitzpatrick’s prep, and anticipation for a Chicago party. Rory McIlroy’s horrendous performance is dealt with and everyone involved, including GolfPass, is called to account. There’s a best cast/worst case segment on Sunday possibilities, and a debate over more likely backdoor top 5: Rory or Xander. The episode closes with the idiotic comments of Patton Kizzire on Southern Hills.
