Tiger’s taking cuts and a Hovland harbinger
We interrupt the Year In Review for a Monday episode that reacts to the Hero happenings down in the Bahamas. Andy and Brendan discuss some of the chipping struggles and challenges that we witnessed on Sunday at Albany, and how it put even some Bermuda aces, like Sam Burns, in a blender, and what that says about overall setups. Then they get on to the winner, Viktor Hovland, and whether this victory is indicative of anything at all, e.g. a 2014-style Spieth preview of what’s to come. They also discuss Morikawa going on tilt as well as Stenson and Spieth somehow hitting off the wrong tee box. Then it’s on to Tiger, the several scenes of him taking full swings throughout the weekend, and indications or expectations that he will tee it up in the PNC. They provide their reactions to that, and what might animate his golf life going forward.
