The Tiger activation, Dubai Drama, the Ko show, and some other spicy takes
This Monday episode is an amusing jaunt through a surprisingly full weekend of golf news. Andy and Brendan begin first with the Tiger Woods swing video, expressing surprise, hope, and context about the commercial aspect of why it was posted. They discuss whether this means we’ll see him playing again soon, or ever. Then they get to Dubai, where Collin Morikawa’s impressive career start continued by becoming the first American to win that season-long contest. They discuss some of the outrageous numbers Morikawa is putting up. There’s also an unexpectedly lengthy chat about Rory, his coach split, what success in November means for someone with his resume, and ripped shirt-gate. On the CME, they marvel at Jin Young Ko’s dominance, her GIR streak, and the state of the women’s game heading into 2022. There are digressions on Lexi, Nelly, and Lydia as well. Talor Gooch is given his due for his breakthrough win before a closing segment on hot driver faces, Brooksy’s new equipment deal, and whether his best golf is behind him.
