The “Fraudulent Physicist,” Alabama golf corruption, and Fortnite Tent research
We’re back recording remotely after a week in Augusta and this Wednesday episode quickly devolves into covering all absurd corners of the golf world since Tiger won the Masters. We run through the schedule of the week and Andy delivers some intel on the great Pasatiempo when crowning his event of the week. We also ponder why Mitsubishi is putting all their marketing money into sponsoring senior events as well as some background on the sketchy circumstances that brought the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail into existence in Alabama, site of this week’s Web Tour event. Then we get to the news that a physicist has disproven Bryson DeChambeau’s crackpot science of putting with the flagstick still in the hole. We discuss the news of Hosung Choi’s exemption to the John Deere Classic and what he might do exploring the Quad Cities region in the heartland of America. Also in news, we hit on the PGA Tour releasing a new mobile video game, which gives Andy an opening to provide some field research he did on if the Fortnite tents have brought kids out to the PGA Tour events. We wrap with some quick picks for the Heritage.
