The Plumb-Bob Prince wins at Riv, Tiger shows signs of life, and Spieth ejects
Andy and Brendan return to discuss all things Genesis Open, but first get to shoutouts and just credit for Ryan Fox, Nelly Korda, and Mark Hubbard on their big wins Sunday. Then we get to the matter of J.B. Holmes, who made more news for his pace of play at Riviera than his victory over Justin Thomas. We discuss the slow play pandemic, what could actually force change, where JB falls on the spectrum of offenders (he’s the worst), and the ultimate nightmare slow-play foursome. The “season of championships” is now officially a thing, with graphics weaved into the broadcast, so we address that. We also discuss Tiger’s charge and future prospects as well as Jordan Spieth’s big implosion that led to his worst PGA Tour round. Andy gets angry about the Genesis Open’s new elevated status sweeping aside the event’s illustrious history. Then we wrap with a news segment on Matt Kuchar trying to make good with El Tucan, Bryson’s enraged vandalism of a Riviera bunker, and the architect of the “Live Under Par” campaign leaving the PGA Tour.
