Thirteen Awards Movies to Watch Out for, Oscar Do-Overs, and More From the Mailbag

"Before we get into the mail couple things over the weekend hit in the world of movies. First thing i want to talk to you about is the thing. I spoke to the directors of this documentary series about which is tiger tiger woods. Now you know as a friend of mine and podcast partner that. I am an avid golfer. And a fan of the sport gulf you are not a fan of the sport golf though your partner is and so golf is in your life but not truly of your life. What do you know about tiger woods. And what were you expecting heading into this documentary. Well in addition to being one of the greatest golfers in history isn't in history and certainly one of the best athletes of the twenty first century. That the correct century yes which i do know about because athletes at that level become pop cultural figures and i am interested in pop culture. Even if i'm not interested in my husband lecturing me about what type of iron tiger woods is using which is like a personal hell that i live in on a daily basis so i know a lot about him as a pop culture athlete and then obviously he has a pop cultural significance all of his own because of the events that he went through in the public eye at the end of the last decade and really honest life for the last decade. Yeah and so. I think that this series is an interesting gambit on. Hbo part it's clearly inspired slash based on a book that came out in two thousand eighteen by jeff benedict and armond katayan. And it's an attempt to make sense in real time of probably the most significant american athlete barring lebron james and michael jordan i would say of the last twenty. Five years maybe serena williams in that conversation. I think it's a very short list of people that do for. The tiger is kind of hanging with in the last quarter century and the film is tricky. Because they only aired part one thus far part two is next sunday and so i don't think you can necessarily spoiler film like this but it depends on. What kind of your you are if you're very engaged in the tiger woods story and his life. I don't think that this film necessarily will teach you a lot about the events of his life. There are not a lot of revelations. I think there are some emotional revelations there are some there's some I guess the matic framing that. Maybe you wouldn't necessarily put together if you weren't deeply entrenched in his story the movie especially the first half of the movie takes great pains to portray this father and son story and to show earl woods. Father as the kind of dr frankenstein at and making tiger woods into this kind of frankenstein monster for better and for worse in that he's incredibly powerful but there's like all kinds of emotional danger in his life I one thing that struck me as i re watched part one last night and i watched it with eileen. It's there's a lot of golf highlights in the first half. And there's there's there's not. There's not a lot of scandal there's not a lot of there is some psychology and there is a lot of sort of personal background about how tiger grew up and who he became. But because he has this sort of monochromatic mono-syllabic experience in the world where we just. He very rarely showed himself to us. Basically what you get is like ninety minutes of an extraordinary highlight reel dovetailing with the story of a father and a son and what they mean to each other. And i think if you're a casual observer my my instinct was. Is this going to work for people now. The second half is different. Can of worms. And i don't wanna spoil it for people but did in the first half. Did you find yourself having a hard time entering the story. I did also watch this with my husband. The aforementioned gulf maniac and the soundtrack to watching this was every time golf shot would be show. Its accuracy like you know it was like a little gallery of one. And he was doing it under his breath and then i was kinda. Are you aware that this is happening. And he was like sorry and then he just kept doing it at a lower volume. I have to say when you show golf. As just a highlight reel. Tiger woods is most incredible shots way. More interesting to me personally than the stuff that you guys have on the tv on sunday afternoon which is so boric. My guys pretty. Good a golf so i enjoyed it in that sense i agree with you that maybe it's not that i had a hard time. It and another interesting thing is that i. I do think if you know even a little bit about tiger woods you kind of know about the earl woods character and that is a pretty established part of his pop culture story. It's a big dad. Big character looming. Dad figure familiar sports figure in show bizz figure for sure and Greatness and then the fall. That's kind of what you know. And as as you mentioned there's a fall there there is a part to we won't spoil all of it but if you are watching this documentary you probably have some idea of what's going to happen in part to and the even najah it at the very end of part one which is the very last shot is a very famous woman. Just sidling up to the camera. I that's that's great filmmaking. And i think when the documentary is leaning in to that winning in that side of the story because it it leans into all the aspects of the story but when it goes for that bit of flair and narrative tension is is when it succeeds

"Interview last night was extremely compelling. You know regardless of which side you were on whether you agreed with them or not. I listen to it again on the podcast this morning and I could find commonality with all of the callers in that Fourth of our after Armand except for your very last call but that's not why I called Major League Baseball is having a problem with with money. They may have another nineteen ninety. Four issue but if they don't play and if we can't see what their experiments looks like. And what the result saw Do you think that might have a negative effect on on college? Sports this fall if we can't see how they WANNA do it and it works doesn't work no no I. I don't the issue in baseball and I mean nobody wants to make less than were making. But when you're not when you're playing shortened season just get off of it already. I mean I think it's absurd and quite frankly I think baseball is already a dangerous sport every once in a while you get the cubs winning winning and it's really great drama but I mean I don't really care they come back or not myself. I'm already about his turned off. I can be but I don't think baseball will have impact on anything else. I think I think the NBA is going to be very important to watch other leagues. We're going to be important to watch especially with the NFL does but Baseball will have no bearing on anything. Except how how stupid. The people that run baseball are well. I certainly agree with that. I just thought we might be able to learn something from there. Hey by the way let me let me amend that. It's not A. It's not the people who run baseball. It's the people that play baseball. I should've said okay. Well thank you very much for taking the call in and you be well today and God bless call. Thank you pat.

We're probably going to get a season in twenty twenty wine regardless of what happens this year but there's a certain game and I want to get your thoughts on it. That happens week. One at twenty twenty one It's Georgia versus Clemson. I think that's supposed to be the CHICK-FIL-A kickoff game if I'm not mistaken and I wanted to get your thoughts on that 'cause When you look at the quarterbacks and everything Trevor Lawrence will most likely be gone Jay froms out Jamie Newman at Georgia. Supposed to start this year from what I understand. Be My enter the draft this year Was like a redshirt junior or whatever he is but they have this recruiting in. Carson bag and we could see a really good quarterback battle with that. Dj Kid and Carson back in that game. What do you think about that? Came Mommy asking Kirsten. You know I'm glad you asked I. This is where people like. You're supposed to pontificate but anyone anyone sitting here on the twenty eighth of May tried to predict anything beyond the twenty ninth of May let alone a game. In September of twenty one would be foolhardy. I've done some foolhardy things in my life but I'm going to refrain from trying to look ahead to next season because we're still trying to get this one in the book but thank you for the call. I really do appreciate it and I applaud your enthusiasm again. Lots of do lots of do today and we certainly want to give you a chance to get in now at eight five. Five two four to seventy eight. Five and pat didn't mention Armond Katayan very controversial. He spoke from his heart. A lot of people did not like what he said. We didn't get much chance to talk about it afterwards.

"A lifetime of memories, we can't wait to see. What's next idir? It's going to be good. We know the so so that's right. A feature story a little piece, and let me just show you how CBS and NBC. This is cut seven how business in BC covered. The story woods is. Now, the youngest athlete to receive the presidential medal of freedom and honor President Trump the day after an improbable masters triumph. For more than a decade. They've been golfing partners and business partners. Tiger is designing a Trump course and Dubai, then nap Armond katayan Kuroda bestselling biography of woods, certainly Tigers either leave very deserving of this award. But there's no question there's there's a branding and a marketing opportunity through the eyes of the president in twenty thirteen. Mr. Trump went out of his way to salute would saying he stuck with him after his personal life spilled into public with a series of extramarital affairs last year, the president praised tiger for not criticizing him. Now. Some critics are questioning Mr. Trump's decision to give what is considered a lifetime achievement award to someone who still has a flourishing career. He gives this this award which was a Hello to war. And maybe someday we'll be one again to to people he wants to associate himself with and so he likes golf. Sure. Sure. Blew the lid up didn't they they blew the little that story. I mean, this stuff is really funny. It's just like I have this image in my mind of these reporters sitting around in a bar staring into their whiskey thinking, you I went to J school. I studied I got an advanced degree, then I'm covering Tiger Woods getting the medal of freedom as if it were story, but they have to because otherwise they got to cover. The fact that Trump is doing a great job you noticed, by the way that nobody is none of the Democrats are running on foreign policy why because Trump's foreign policy is actually working. He actually is bringing people to the table. Who haven't come to the table before? He's got our enemies scared out of their wits. He's got our allies like Germany, suddenly thinking, oh, maybe we do have to pay up a little bit. It's still negotiation. But at least they're talking about it, you know, they're not talking about that at all. So what are they talking about? They're talking about. Jerrold Nadler in the house threatening attorney general bar with. With contempt of congress in the incredibly incredible shrinking investigation. Remember, we start out Trump as a Russian spy, we're using the word treason. This is a terrible terrible thing. And then it's no he wasn't a Russian spy, but he tried to obstruct Justice only the Justice wasn't obstructed Nico operated with the investigation. But he said a lot of things..

"Support for only a game comes from Simon and Schuster, presenting. This message Simon and Schuster publisher of Tiger Woods by Jeff Benedict and Armond katayan. This New York Times bestselling biography of Tiger Woods is sourced from years of reporting and more than two hundred fifty interviews. Tiger Woods is available in paperback e book and as an audio book. This is only a game. I'm Jason k the Rwandan genocide began twenty five years ago this month over just one hundred days about eight hundred thousand people many of them to seize were killed by Hutu extremists. But just a month before the genocide began Tuzi, Eric meringue way wasn't afraid even though people on the street were calling him names, like cockroach, Eric was an invincible nineteen year old a star athlete at the peak of his career as the goalkeeper for Rwanda's most beloved football team, rayon sport. And he says he was more concerned about the game than what was going on beyond the football field. Reporter Shane Sheely traveled to Rwanda together. This story it was spring of nineteen ninety four Eric. Morongo was training for the game of a lifetime.

"It. But here it is. Glory. Fifth masters title at age, forty three followed a ten year drought of major tournament victories, and completed a remarkable comeback from a personal scandal that all but ruined his reputation and back surgery that left him unable to swing a club at all for some perspective on Wood's career and his team we turn to Jeff Benedict. He's the author with Armond katayan of a widely read biography published last year called Tiger Woods. It's now out in paperback. We'll Jeff Benedict welcome to fresh air. Tiger Woods dominated golf like nobody ever few people dominate anything. Really, give us a sense of how he was trained for this life and skill how you know, how young was he when he when he started learning golf. Fair to say tiger was two years old when he when he really started to learn golf, he was one when he started watching his father play golf practice golf in the garage. And that was a daily regiment where he would sit there and watch his father putting by the time he was to tiger was putting and starting to practice and learn things with his dad he was in golf all the time by the time Tigers twelve or thirteen there's some really intense training going on that goes beyond what most parents would deem appropriate role would do things like there were demeaning. I mean, he would call tiger very demeaning names names that I can't use on the air. It was an attempt to to put them down or break them down in a mental way emotional way, while tiger was practicing. It was intended to toughen him and really prepare him for. What was a head? They had a code word between the two of them. The word was enough. And tiger was to use that word if his father ever pushed him too, far he never used that word is that was African American his mom Kultida was tie. Earl would sometimes yell racial epithets at tiger was that's preparing for for a racist world that he wouldn't counter. Part of the reason to use those epithets was because Earl had a really good understanding of where his son was going. He knew that where tiger was going was the country club set when he was a young boy in teenager tiger. That is Earl was constantly looking for ways to help his son beat the country club kids who had all the advantages of wealth and socioeconomic status and so part of that those racial epithets. Yeah, he that's part of what's factored into it. Tiger would be competing on golf courses as a teenager where there were no kids of color. There were no parents of color. There was just nobody of color at these clubs. And then this boy would walk out onto the course in all is would be on him because he was not only did he look differently than everybody else. But he was so much better than everybody else. And there's a tremendous amount of pressure emotional pressure. That comes with that. And Earl was trying to put a shield or force field around his son that would enable him to cope with that. When he reached the PGA tour when he joined the PGA tour, there are a lot of ways to measure this a good was he? He arrives like a comet. And if you think about it in nineteen ninety seven he hasn't been on the tour for a year yet. And he goes to the masters in wins by a record margin. I mean, you're talking about a boy, basically, right? He's just come out of college is software, and he doesn't just win the masters. He trashes investors. He he completely annihilates the field. His driving distance off. The tee is so much farther than everybody else. It's a bit like watching a biotic man hit a golf ball. And everybody's watching this going. This is the future kids just got here. You're everybody's playing for second place. I mean, he that's how he arrived. I read your book about that masters in which he made history by setting course, records and tournament records that you know, a major golf tournament is seventy two holes the first nine holes. He played horribly. He would have been sent home except he turned it around after nine and refocused. This is remarkable. It is. And I think that that's one of the reasons that to this day Tiger Woods give tremendous credit to his father. There's a bond between them. There's a reason for that. I of moment at the end of that masters where Earl and tiger are embracing and crying into each other shoulders and expressing. I love you to each other. It's that was sort of the culmination of the eighteen years of grinding driving training between Irwin tiger. And it paid off with that masters. It's that's the role really of Earl that you saw come out and tiger. He he was there for that masters, and frankly, he shouldn't have been because there was ill. And he was his doctorate visored him not to go. But he went and he had a role in helping tiger turn it around mentally. Tiger Woods had a remarkable career as a professional. I wanna talk about though, what his body went through. It's interesting. You know, you see some golfers. And then I play the game a little and you see some golfers who have a nice relaxed swing the ball just takes off like a rocket. But tiger didn't. I mean every time he swung a club even one of the shorter clubs. It was just an explosion of impact toes a bit about what his body went through and the toll that it took on of all the practice and play. I think that the best way to describe or differentiate Tigers not only swing, but as a protest to golf is this that when he first joined the PGA tour in ninety six the adjective that was used to describe his swing was violent violent is not a word, you typically associated with golf. I mean, that's a word for football or boxing, but Earl was all about weaponising, his son. When tiger struck the ball. It was like an explosion his his high school girlfriend told us that the first time she witnessed tiger drive a ball at a driving range it felt and sounded like a rocket taking off now over time. His swing coach Butch Harmon was concerned that that violent torque of a swing on his back was going to have some negative consequences. They were actually trying early on to tone it. It down even his youth instructor was trying to get him to not swing so hard and so violently but on the other hand that was part of who he was and part of what made him great. But it did take a toll. And he finally got what spinal fusion surgery. What does that mean? What does it mean for the fourth and final back surgery that Tiger Woods had was a spinal fusion surgery? And you know, there was a lot of question as to whether that would work whether he'd be able to return most experts and prognosticators predicted that he would never play. Again. The thing is you everybody underestimates who this man is in how this man was made. And I'm talking more now about not about how he was built physically. But I'm talking about how he was built mentally. And there's things like, determination, and grit that tiger possesses and to a degree that I think really separates him. From everybody else. And I don't just mean the other golfers on the PGA tour, I'm talking about athletes in general, he he's a rare world class athletes had has grit and determination in a pain threshold that just it's unlike any athlete that I've seen or written about Jeff Benedict is the author with Armand Catan of the book Tiger Woods. It's now out in paperback. We'll continue our conversation after short break. This is fresh air. This is fresh air. And we're speaking with Jeff Benedict. He is the author with Armond katayan of the biography Tiger Woods, which is now out in paperback. His marriage exploded in scandal in two thousand and turned out he'd had multiple extramarital affairs. And in general, it's fair to say looking at this biography that he is was in many ways, not the most admirable person. I will say I give some slack to people who get fame and wealth at a very young age. I mean, a lot of do stupid things when we're young, and we just don't we just don't have the means and the attention for them to be so noticed how much has he changed? What's your sense of that is he different towards other players fans of the relationships? I think he's he's evolved. He's evolved a lot over time. He's he's in his forties. Now, he's been through more than it's hard to actually find someone on the planet. That's been through things comparable to tiger. Because of the fame he had. So when he made the mistakes that he made we all watched them in real time and. It. It was a colossal fall from grace. He was mimicked. He was mocked. He was criticized he was made fun of he was the butt of jokes on late night television. Where I think this changed was the way he dealt with that. I've never seen a public figure respond to controversy the way. He did he faced the cameras he answered the tough questions. He didn't run in Hyde. He took it any took it in a way that I think impressed people people might not have been impressed with what he did. But the way he responded to it. I think was the beginning of change. And then you had that ten year period from two thousand nine when he have car accident till ten years later where he was went through all the injuries. And now what you're seeing is. He's a father with children. He he's a super dedicated dad. He's got his career back. He thought he'd never play again. Now, he's playing again, he's got his head. Health back in his mobility. And I think he he looks at everything differently. He looks at the game differently. Looks at life differently. You can see there's a genuineness to the way he is engaged with people. Now, this is not an act. It's not the nasty thing you saw fifteen years ago when he was at the pinnacle of his game what you're seeing now is a guy who who loves what he's doing to me that potentially makes him more dangerous as long as he stays healthy. He could be really hard to beat over the next few years. So what he did last weekend? Winning the masters at age forty three after debilitating surgery and his been the blow up of his career. How big is this in the annals sports? It could very well. Go down as the greatest comeback in the issue of sports. What he came back from is unprecedented because of just how far he'd fallen. This wasn't just, you know, a decent golfer who had some public humiliation. This was the greatest golfer of all time. This was one of the greatest athletes in history who had an incredibly precipitous fall that took him right out of the game. It turned his life upside down, and and we all watched it, and then it culminated with the series of injuries that that took him out of the sport entirely. People didn't expect him to ever play. Again. Let alone come back and do something like win the masters. The reason it's it's doubly great is. Because this is a comeback story that transcends sports. We all know what happened to him in his private life because it played out supposedly. And so the message of tiger's life. I think has. Become just because you're down doesn't necessarily mean you're out. And that's a message that resonates with a lot of people who may not even care about golf or sports in general. I think that there's a lot of people that have watched this. And the reason I've been inspired by it is because they got introduced to him after the scandal. And that's when they realize, oh, this was a great golfer. Look what's happening. And now they see that he's turned all that around. And he's gotten it back Jeff Benedict.

"It. But here it is. Fifth masters title at age forty three followed a ten year drought of major tournament victories, and completed a remarkable comeback from the personal scandal that all but ruined his reputation and back surgery that left him unable to swing a club at all for some perspective on Wood's career. And is a team we turn to Jeff Benedict. He's the author with Armand contagion of a widely read biography published last year called Tiger Woods. It's now out in paperback. Jeff Benedict, welcome to fresh air. Tiger Woods dominated golf like nobody ever like few people dominate anything. Really give us a sense of how he was trained for this life and skill how you know, how young was he when he started learning golf. It's fair to say tiger was two years old when he when he really started to learn golf, he was one when he started watching his father play golf practice golf in the garage. And that was a daily regiment where he would sit there and watch his father pot by the time. He was to tiger was putting and starting to practice and learn things with his dad he was in golf all the time by the time Tigers twelve or thirteen there's some really intense training going on that goes beyond what most parents would deem appropriate role would do things like there were demeaning. I mean, he would call tiger very demeaning names names that I can't use on the air. It was an attempt to put them down or break him down in a mental way emotional way, while tiger was practicing. It was intended to toughen him and really prepare him for. What was a head? They had a code word between the two of them. The word was enough. And tiger was to use that word if his father ever pushed him too, far he never used that word is that are was African American his mom Kultida was tie. Earl would sometimes yell racial epithets at tiger was that to prepare them for a for a racist world that he went encounter part of the reason to use those epithets was because Earl had a really good understanding of where his son was going. He knew that where tiger was going was the country club set when he was a young boy in a teenager tiger. That is role was constantly looking for ways to help his son beat the country club kids who had all the advantages of wealth and socioeconomic status and so part of that those racial epithets. Yeah, he that's part of what's factored into it. Tiger would be competing on golf courses as a teenager where there were no kids of color. There were no parents of color. There was just nobody of color at the clubs, and then this boy would walk out onto the course in all is would be on him because he was not only did he look differently than. Everybody else, but he was so much better than everybody else. And there's a tremendous amount of pressure emotional pressure. That comes with that. And Earl was trying to put a shield or force field around his son that would enable him to cope with that. When he reached the PGA tour when he joined the PGA tour, there are a lot of ways to measure this a good was he? He arrives like a comet if you think about it in nineteen ninety seven he hasn't been on the tour for a year yet. And he goes to the masters in wins by a record margin. I mean, you're talking about a boy, basically, right? He's just come out of college is a sophomore. And he doesn't just win the masters. He trashes the masters. He he completely annihilates the field. His driving distance off. The tee is so much farther than everybody else. It's a bit like watching a biotic man hit a golf ball. And everybody's watching this going. This is the future. I mean, it's kids just got here. You're everybody's playing for second place. I mean, he that's how he arrived. I read your book about that masters in which he made history by setting course, records and tournament records that a major golf tournament is seventy two holes the first nine holes. He played horribly. He would have been sent home except he turned it around after nine and refocused. This is remarkable. It is. And I think that that's one of the reasons that to this day Tiger Woods give tremendous credit to his father. There's a bond between them. There's a reason for that. I conduct moment at the end of that masters where Earl and tiger are embracing and crying into each other shoulders and expressing. I love you to each other. It's that was sort of the culmination of the eighteen years of grinding driving training between Irwin tiger. And it paid off with that masters. It's that's the role really of Earl that you saw come out and tiger. He he was there for that masters, and frankly, he shouldn't have been because there was ill. And he was his doctorate visored him not to go. But he went and he had a role in helping tiger turn it around mentally. Tiger Woods had remarkable career as a professional. I want to talk about though, what his body went through. It's interesting. You know, you see some golfers. I play the game a little and you see some golfers who have a nice relaxed swing the ball just takes off like a rocket. But tiger didn't.

Few, months then yeah back and hopefully. It does. Hold all right let's talk going to start with the armchair. Psychologist roll here first off losing his dad who was such a central part of his life to that cost him. A killer focus No no not at all I think If you look at his, record and his performance host Earls death some of the most incredible victories, in, his, entire career happened. After all Died I think he some of the things he did. In, oh seven in a. Way and even on nine before the crash or just. Remarkable I, mean, he he won a major on a broken. Leg that was also that the fact that at that, point he's leading this incredible double life mixed the chaos in, focus so, well, well that was the second thing I was gonna, say If you just, look at his record alone it's pretty clear that losing Earl, did. Not, cause, tiger to lose his mental add your killer instinct I think when you couple with that. The fact that those last three years between when Earl passed away and when tiger crashed his car Tigers personal life was completely out of control and yet he was still eating people. And still displaying that incredible ability? To compartmentalize and blackout everything else going on around him to focus, on? Golf when he was inside the ropes is it right to go ahead is it going to say that thing that he, loses with Earl though I think what's important about the loss of Europe is that's really when. I think he loses his guardrails in other words that careening of his private life. Going off a clip that all happens after, Earl is gone and Earl was was always a form of card rails for. Tiger interesting that dissipated It essentially he's never recovered from hitting that tree right I think It would probably be fair to say that you're right on that except until the last. Six months, I mean I think that tiger hit what I consider an army considers to be rock bottom in may of last year when he was found on the side of a road Florida thinking he was in southern, California slumped over a wheel with the engine still running and two tires blown out, that was I mean that that could've ended actually a lot worse, than it did that night and I think that as a result of that night He, he has gone through some pretty substantial changes and ever Lucien in his outlook and his mindset toward a lot of things he is, a he's a, different person today certainly than he was back in two to nine when he crashed into the. Tree in his neighbor yard I think he's he's been through a series of personal crisis that would have crushed and, basically destroyed most people if you just take, one of his one of his personal challenges off the off the course any one of those whether, it was the, massive into -delity scandal whether it was the the public shaming that, went on when he went in, for sex addiction treatment a high..

"Sunday from the rodwell resort colorado springs colorado great to have you with us on a master's sunday edition of the big show and a lot of buzz a lot of talk going in to this year's masters jerry of course courses centered around none other than tiger woods making a comeback it's ever been a real barometer as far as how players are playing going into the masters you know he had some really good turnament and now he's eighteen strokes out going into sunday here so the masters is a whole different animal compared to a lot of the other majors i think that course is suited for certain players much more than others i think we've seen that over the course of time and i don't know that you know the hot golfer going in doesn't always play all that way at phil mickelson and other guy this there's a new book out it's called simply tiger woods and it tells the story of tiger and i gotta be honest with you in full disclosure i got the book this week i'm i've i've haven't finished reading it i'm pretty far into it but i can tell you right now just from what i've read i think it's going to beat the no matter what happens from here out for the next twenty five thirty years of tigers career i think it's going to be the definitive book on the tiger woods story co authored by jeff benedict of the new york times and armond katayan who we've watched on hbo on cbs for years and years and years to award winning journalists they collaborated on a previous book and they got together to write this one they've been working on it for over three years they interviewed over two hundred fifty people about the book and they're with us today joining us on the td green guests line on.

"Route to your family good point so guys i wanted to talk about tiger i think i think the reason that we're seeing so many people looking to support tiger is that we love to watch people rise and then equally we get satisfied when we see people fall from grace so we've seen both both extremes for tiger and now we're looking to see them come back up from that swing yeah i mean look everyone as is it says on the board here billy everyone loves a comeback they do i think this is i was the first to say it i didn't think this was going to be possible i thought the combination of the chaos that he had created i mean even armond katayan said what was this was february of last year right two thousand seventeen when when the traffic stop occurred we're talking about just over a calendar biggest accomplishment just coming back from that he had the back surgery that i don't think anyone's ever had that back surgery and come back to play competitive golf i thought the combination was going to be way too much for him what he has done so far has been very very pleasantly surprising to me billy i'm going to give you a golfer here for a competition for the masters and fi now don't give him two hundred sixty dollar value at the golf center at this point the winner will receive two months of all you can hit membership so we've only given only ten of them so are eleven contestant who does he get billy gets adam scott's i think adam scott was one of the golfers i drafted today in today's masters yeah he's selection thanks guys.
