Scottie, Sahith, and Cannon Fodder Charley
After a wild and eventful weekend, this Monday episode naturally begins by discussing the worst, most nonsensical holidays on the occasion of Valentine’s Day. Then Brendan and Andy get to the Phoenix Open and Scottie Scheffler finally prevailing for a win over Patrick Cantlay in a playoff. The breakout weekend for Sahith Theegala is also put in perspective and appreciated. The 16th hole beer showers are reviewed, as is Brooks Koepka’s play over the final 36. Then it’s on to Charley Hoffman, the unprotected pro, penalized martyr, and useful idiot for players like Phil and Bryson trying to take the Saudi league money. There’s a full accounting, full of laughs, incredulity, and critique about the issues and contentions by small and large sprouting from Hoffman’s meandering Instagram rant.
