Listen: Tiger Woods, Golf, Brooks Kepco discussed on ESPN Podcenter
"Contracts, to take a look at the leaderboard for the PGA championship as we. Start to round out now the last major in golf. Here for twenty eighteen Brooks fifteen under Ascott fourteen hundred Tiger Woods at thirteen under and. Brooks KEPCO we're talking about this and we actually have talked about this several, times throughout our, program Myron. Is that, Brooks KEPCO as has been very successful this year winning championships he's been very, very good question is is that will be someone that the non-gulf fan. Or the, novice golf, fan we'll be able to gravitate to because besides rooks. Kept being an American besides. The Champions, he's one there is no cachet there is no q factor from kept. Outside of the sport and here's the thing I think. In sports in general you have to be able to not just bring in die hards. But if you want to be able to grow your sport you want kids, you want women, you want. Everyone to be under the tent the best sports that could bring everyone under the tent, of the ones that will have sustained success for their business and for their sport Yeah and, that's the thing that golf is still trying to figure. Out because we should know more. About Brooks KEPCO and where people who are in this thing. Man it's our it's our living we're watching sports when nobody else is you. Know we should know something about Bruce cap cubby besides the fact that he's won back. To back US opens this could be a second major victory and you know every single story every single story about the, PGA championship will be, what, Tiger. Woods not win the. Major but being close Tiger Woods. In the hot fallen short that'll. Be the attention of this that'll be the focus of this. Finish in the PGA championship and I think that is, to be expected because of how big tiger is but the challenges. PGA tour and people on the PGA tour and affiliated with, the tour people, in charge of, promoting the sport should do more to make, sure that this guy isn't gonna win a second major and we're just like okay cool he's a good golfer we should know more about Some of these guys now I'm not saying, that they all have personalities and as you said earlier in the show tiger has a combination of factors, don't racially his success his background all these things came. Together to make him bigger than. The sport itself and then you win seven majors in three. Years that helps too but we need to know something about these younger golfers, is up and coming golfers so that we can begin to pay attention to them as. Well as Tiger Woods going forward a birdie now for Brooks kept us and now he is up sixteen under he's two, shots ahead of Adam, Scott, and. Three shots ahead attacker. Woods and now under yeah Might be over now might be right. There You know what some of these golfers though the thing that That I think. About is, we can't make them what they, are not right I, mean, because because here's the thing is as you, mentioned earlier Myron He's guys some. Of these guys they grow up into the sport and here's what's so frustrating to me so our our guy Michael Collins he has, all the dirt he has. All the stories of all these golfers off the course away from the cameras because it's not like he's? Party? With them but he has the information why do I need to find out about golfers that I want to gravitate. To through Michael Collins done Mike I'm just saying that that's, not on the PGA? Golf channel that's on PJ golf radio. That is not in the is that saying that Gaustaut mainstream because you. Know it, is but what Tiger Woods and, let's talk about this, for Before the drama were Tiger Woods what you knew is is, that he was a golf. Prodigy on the Mike Douglas show with his son with his dad rather what his dad so they were? All? Together and Tiger Woods doing putt says like three or four year old grew up into the sport right yeah there's. A backstory so what but outside of that until the Perkins, diner situation what do? We know about about Tiger Woods We. Knew he was great and, and being great was enough and that's. A huge, part is you make a great point, eight you can't force these guys have. Personalities if they? Don't and be tiger one seven. Majors from nine? Ninety nine to two thousand and two all of these factors came together to make. Him who he was but it is Phil Mickelson was has he been that interesting he's obviously had some off the chorus drama you know he's dealt. With I think the illness of his wife you know he's had other things off the course but I don't know that, feel himself is that. Interesting I don't know if ROY McElroy is that interesting but yet we paid attention to a number of these folks is, Sergio? That, interesting I just. Feel like, there is the next generation and all we know, about him is that they're good at golf And that to. Me is a? Problem for the sport going forward. And that's why? We're still talking about tiger to the same degree yeah we want to win yeah. We want to see if he has another chapter but we also don't know who else to talk about right now That's a bit products It's to the point where Brooks kept your could win this, championship of Saint Louis and. We can celebrate that he won the championship and then ends there unless he says something that's colorful. In his press conference Yeah and that's but I know for generations that has been. Golf but it hasn't been that way for everybody you know and I'm not looking, for everybody to just bring. A you know a fifth of object Daniels to to the course or have the shivers aware Zubaydah's Right exactly but still golf needs to be you will have that color about it and, it just it just feels. More, times than not again kept. In very comfortable lead we'll keep our. Eyes on what happens here and the PGA. Championship in Saint Louis and that's.
