The Social Security Slam, Tartan and Power Wagons, and Feng adoration
This Monday episode begins with some unexpected animal content. Then Andy and Brendan get into the dawn of the Jason Kokrak era following his win over home favorite Jordan Spieth at Colonial. There is earnest praise for Kokrak and the consistent contention week-to-week (and at majors) after some improvements in his game. There’s incredulity about the need for three trophies, as well as Spieth’s Sunday struggles. Also, are we now set up for a Kokrak vs. Alex Cejka Sunday singles match at the Ryder Cup? Cejka is in the crosshairs after taking his second senior major of the year, providing further evidence that perhaps this Senior Safety Net should not exist. On the LPGA Match Play, they discuss the grueling test in triple digit temps the week before a major that will be its own difficult walk. They hail Shanshan Feng, recent Eye on Olympic subject, for her bailing on the consolation match. There are also a few more Feng stories relayed that only add to the appreciation. Cameron Young’s KFT hot streak is highlighted in “Fake Spring” conditions. News hits on rumors that Brooks might have leaked the infamous interview video and a Thirst Bucket of the Week debate on a nice gesture, which happens often but with typically less fanfare.
