Sunday at the PGA: JT’s charge, Mito’s mistake, and Rory’s disappointment
Another major is in the books, and Andy and Brendan begin this episode discussing how this was one you had to really work for to get some action. It was a sluggish weekend, and then it quickly wasn’t, as Justin Thomas stormed back into contending position while the leaders fell back in a variety of ways. They break up the episode into winners and losers, beginning obviously with Justin Thomas, assessing his strike on Sunday and his overall place in the game. There’s empathy for Mito, and incredulity about his 18th hole process. There’s also plenty of props for Will Zalatoris, while a frank discussion of his weaknesses and his ability to rise at majors. Rory’s absolutely crushing weekend, and his decision to blow off any discussion of it with the media, is covered. And then there’s the Southern Hills review, praise for a week without “silliness” and rebuttal of some of the player complaints.
