THommy wins it for Illinois, centerline angst, Amex “drama,” and Orlando fake winter
It’s victory Monday for Andy, who’s happy about Illinois’ own Thomas Pieters getting it done in Abu Dhabi as well as the Packers not getting it done in Lambeau. Grayson Allen, on the other hand, is a source of outrage. In golf, they begin with that Euro Tour event in the desert, assessing Pieters’ arc, the new course setup, and Hatton’s heated words on the 18th hole needing to be blown up. At the other desert event, the Amex, they praise Hudson Swafford and weight Jon Rahm’s cussin’ outburst about the tourney being nothing more than a “putting contest.” At the LPGA event, they ponder real or fake winter in Orlando having an impact specifically on Danielle Kang’s ability to win. There’s also an old man rant about the volume of the music playing at the 18th hole. They close with a nod to both young and old winners at the Latin America Am and on the Champions Tour.
