The Great Range Wall, a Lexi comp, and The Home of (MLGT) Golf
This Wednesday episode is a U.S. Women’s Open preview with a little Race to Dubai and Minor League Golf Tour championship discussion tacked on at the end. Brendan and Andy begin by discussing this week’s major venue and the unique challenges of hosting across 36 holes in December. There’s also the unique challenge of the driving range setup, which has both of them all hot and bothered. They hit on the favorites, the notable tee times, make a Lexi-Pat Reed comparison, and flip out about the name of a new driver before discussing the more serious matter of only 4 percent of sports coverage being dedicated to women’s sports. The Race to Dubai coverage is centered around the lipstick on a pig quotes regarding Collin Morikawa’s attendance and contention for the season-long title as well as Sungjae Im’s curious but expected participation. They close it out with the heavy hitters and Tour vets in the field for the MLGT title at Abacoa, which is proposed as the St. Andrews of that tour’s rota.
