Thirsty in the desert and the Howell predicament
This early recording previews the upcoming week at the golf influencer Super Bowl known as the Phoenix Open. Andy and Brendan discuss the strong field, strong finish, and some of the younger exemptions playing, notably Preston Summerhays. There’s an interlude on the superintendent’s championship that Andy watched up close, with some questions about credentials for entry. One and done picks zero in on someone sure to quench his thirst in the desert, and another tried-and-true standby, the Desert Fox. There’s a short discussion on Charles Howell III, who will make his 600th start this week. Which young players might go this long in the coming decades, if any? The DP World Tour event focuses on some amusing notables and the lack of a title sponsor, with some added intel from the locker room in Dubai a few weeks ago.
