The Match is back, NYT digs into LIV, and questions about Ockie

Andy and Brendan return after a week together out on the west coast, and they begin with tales of Baker coming back to haunt a survivor pool, birthday party overkill, and an overzealous kids tumbling class enforcer getting in Andy’s kitchen. On golf, they begin with The Match, and its success for the golf geeks everywhere. They praise JT, pan the amount of carts, question how we frame Tiger’s “progress,”ponder whether more of these should replace actual PGA Tour events, and investigate Phil’s odd tweet encouraging folks to watch. The second half of the episode focuses on the New York Times report on LIV’s financial future based on a consulting study, and what that says about the league’s motives and staying power as the PGA Tour tries to further isolate it.
