Thursday at the PGA Championship: Dartboard Valhalla and Stars Shine

It’s a major week, so that means daily podcasts for the fifth straight year of PGA Championships on the Shotgun Stat. Even if the scoring and setup don’t really feel like a major. Andy and Brendan begin their Thursday episode discussing some early amusements from the day, including the club pro named Bowser sort of looking like a Bowser. They offer an unsubstantiated rumor about John Daly and cigarette usage at the champions dinner. They discuss some gripes from various agents and stakeholders about how the PGA made up this field. And then they get to the course this field is on, and how it’s simply from a bygone era and cannot test the modern tour pro. Did it make for an exciting morning? Sure! They hit on Rory “scrapping” it around and Xander looking flawless. They offer up a “Who’s Not Dialed In” segment with some amusing nuggets on Butch Harmon, Talor Gooch, and others. They close it out with some games within the game and some quick reaction to the PGA press conference on Wednesday.
