The not-so-Western Open makes rare Chicago stop, FEC Bubble boys, Euro Ryder Cup moves
This Wednesday episode begins with news that the BMW Championship will be going to the great Western frontier of Liberty National in a few years. Andy and Brendan react to the upcoming rota for this former Western Open, as well as news that hats are being sold in the merch tent claiming this history while also shattering it. Schedule for the week is a ramble all over the place, including some of the bubble boys who could help or hurt their Ryder Cup causes here late in the game. Also, is Matt Fitzpatrick struggling from Fitz Confusion. There’s also one bubble boy nominee who could provide some of the best messaging the PGA Tour could use right about now. Some Luke Donald comments on the prospects of Ludvig Aberg also triggers a quick side chat on European Ryder Cup prospects. There’s some U.S. Am chatter from Denver, which earns event of the week honors — surprisingly the Champions Tour event in Calgary did not get it.
