Anheuser-Busch vs Coors Brewing Company at Augusta National

"That reminds me of a story from Augusta national, actually. When I was playing a practice round there, it was how quiet it is. There are SK what normally. And I was there in March, the month prior for my last trip there before the masters. And you have to be with a member if you're bringing anyone to play. Jeff Knox came out and just the token Augusta national member. And we were talking and he was telling me some stories about that place. He was telling me who was on site that day. And apparently the guy that owns Anheuser Busch is a member there and Peter kurz, the guy that owns Coors brewing, they're obviously competitors, but they're both members at Augusta and they were the guy that owns Anheuser Busch was there that day. And Peter kurz had gotten wind that the guy that owns Anheuser Busch was going to be on site that day. So he called the day prior. You know where I'm going with this. He called the day prior and bought all of the Coors light on the property. All of the coolest products. He spent like $30,000 and bought all of their products and had them shipped off. So when Peter corris got there the next day to play golf at Augusta national, there was no course products. He had to drink Bud Light or Budweiser or an Anheuser Busch product. That's the kind of shit that doesn't happen anywhere else in the country. But like a little snicker ha ha, I made him drink my beer. That happens all the time at Augusta national. There's little bitty things where they run their, it's like their own government inside those gates. They have no rules except for what they want to do. It doesn't even feel like they have anyone over them. They are the rules in Augusta,

And said you know you still leading the masters and i just change my mindset a little bit and started to play matchplay against the golf course scratcher line on my scorecard and told myself as three down and could i go ahead and beat the golf course from that point on so i had a part in eighteen to win my match.

Saturday at the 2020 Masters

"Saturday at the masters in dustin. Johnson is running away. He carries a four shot lead into the final round sunday. Following a seven under sixty five saturday he was masterful tying jordan speiss fifty four hole record chasing johnson on the leaderboard are sung j. M abraham answer and cameron smith all four shots back while justin thomas and dylan 'fratelli sit five shots back following his round saturday. I called up with dustin johnson. Seven hundred sixty five news. Dustin johnson to sixteen under through three rounds. What did you do well saturday. And what if anything would you like to do. Better sunday I did everything while today. Adrover very nicely head. A bunch of fairways Hit a lot of greens and felt like i. I gave myself good chances on your on almost every hole. and so. that's kind of what you gotta do here. In the conditions. Not a lot of wind you know. Courses is fairly soft so you can be aggressive and Strike in a very nicely today And so you know tomorrow. We'll have to go out and do a lot of the same if i to win. Tied jordan speeds fifty four hole record. What's the balance between staying aggressive and not being dumb Well for me. It all depends on you know. Flag positions numbers Forgot a good number. And and i like the flag is a play aggressive but Like i said the course right now is is very receptive so you know i know the guys behind me are going to be trying to chase down south. You know you can't play you know there's a there's definitely a fine line of being too conservative and too aggressive but you just have to pick and choose my spots second last year. How did that impact your motivation. This time around. I mean yeah it was. I've played well last year. I played while the last couple years so obviously this one tournament that that i definitely want to win and you know. It means a lot to me. A- grew up so close to here and so it is something that i really look forward to until tomorrow is going to be a. It's gonna be a lot of funding. I'm gonna try to enjoy myself as much as i can and Hopefully hopefully outcomes good tomorrow afternoon. You heard dustin johnson say right there how badly he wants to win the masters. It's the dream of every player in the field in this eighty. Four th edition for more analysis on the third round and what to expect sunday. Let's bring in the voice of masters digital jimmy roberts. Dustin carries a four shot lead into sunday following a seven hundred sixty five saturday. He was masterful. Tying jordan speiss fifty four hole record assess his performance on saturday. A great it was basically as good as you could get You know you said it. He tied the fifty four hole scoring record. It is a different time of year. But i don't think it really matters. I mean the thing that sticks out to me is that you know through fifty four holes. He's got two bogeys which is unimaginable. On this golf course and they were in consecutive holes. Fourteen and fifteen in the second round. And when you stop to think about it he bogeyed the second easiest hole on the course which means that by all rights. He should probably expect to birdie the fifteen th hole. You give him two more strokes and he's just farther ahead of the pack. But i will just say this. I was here in nineteen ninety six and i covered that masters where greg norman had six stroke lead and nick faldo came back to win it so i mean this course can do things to you i mean. I think that there were extenuating circumstances that year. Norman had some physical difficulties. That didn't manifest until the final day and faldo played effortlessly. I think he shot sixty seven It's gonna take that for somebody to beat him tomorrow Somebody's going to have to play really really well. And he's going to have to stumble. What is it about this golf. Course that suits his game so well. Well i mean at this point really. He's the number one player in the world and he's as they like to say in europe he's on form so you know. He's a finely tuned engine right now and He's not even close to the red line. So i mean he is just got it all going on right now. I mean he's you know. I always say that you know. These are the best golfers in the world on on a week to week basis. You know you shouldn't be surprised if somebody you've never heard of comes up and wins a tournament because they are all remarkably talented. But he's the best of all of them right now and he is playing really well You know we've talked about this over the last couple of days. He you know he's long and straight which is tough to beat and then a couple of years ago. He decided that in order to get better you had to work on his wedge game so he went and did that he's become a terrific putter and he's completely unflappable. He i think. And i think that's the most important thing i think he's a guy who just does not get undone by much. I just asked him a few moments ago. what's the balance between maintaining the aggression. That got you here without going too far. Yeah i'd i'd be curious to know what he said but in all honesty. I've never seen him loses. Temper made him. I've never seen him hot. I've never seen him running hot. I'd seen him disappointed disappointed. And you're not going to be able to see this on the podcasts. But you know it's just kind of an shucks wish i hadn't tripled that whole crazy when i do. Something you know like that He's really he's a talented man. Who's in stride right now and You know he's done a lot He's one everything but tons of majors. I mean he's tiger tiger woods. He's one in to start his career. He's won thirteen consecutive seasons to start his career. Only tiger woods is done that and he tied him tiger actually one in his first fourteen seasons. But i mean he just consistently wins you know and it's hard to beat talent you know and worth work ethic when you match those two things together. It's very difficult. Let's look at the leaderboard. That is chasing dustin johnson song j. m. abraham answer cameron smith all four shots back. Justin thomas and dylan for tally. Five shots back if you were going to pick one to catch him. I don't think there's any question. The person who watches is Is justin thomas. But the way sunday m is playing and things are different now than they used to be. You know it's been forty one years since a first timer has one here that was fuzzy zeller nineteen seventy-nine. You know i was with the jack nicklaus this morning doing something and He talks. Jack came here and he didn't win for the first five times that he played here. But this is a course more than any other course were experiences necessary. But look you've got answer and in two players who were here for the first time in their you know right nipping at his heels Sebastian munoz too. So i i do think that must not be worth as much as it has been in the past given the level of talent and work of these guys but you know you give me a guy who has the experience and a guy who doesn't of equal talent and at the same spot in their game. I'm gonna take the guy with experience at this place every single time. Rory mcilroy and brooks koepka. Both superstars both at eight. Under after three rounds. How plausible is it that they might contend on sunday. I think it's entirely plausible. I mean i think that you know mcelroy's trending in the right direction after that seventy five in the first round which was disastrous for him. Just can't seem to get out of his own way sometimes but he's got a game. That's ideally suited for this place. He hits it high far and straight. His natural shot is right to left You know he's been number one in the world he's not undone by these big situations. Generally i think he's going to be a very interesting guy to watch tomorrow. But in all honesty there's so much daylight between dustin johnson and the rest of the field at this point and it's not the daylight of four strokes. It's the daylight of four strokes with the number one player on the one side of that daylight. Who's playing well. And i mean. I think it's gonna take dustin johnson shooting seventy two or three tomorrow. I mean i suppose it could happen. You know greg. Norman shot seventy six. Nick faldo shot sixty seven That lead had evaporated by the tenth. Tentpole the eleventh hole So you never know. But i would be. I would be shocked. But i remember being augusta national in in One thousand nine hundred ninety six and remember all the stories that we were doing. And i did a story for. Espn that night. And i said you know it would be shocking if greg norman didn't win but if he doesn't it will be one of the biggest stories and we won't soon forget it and here. We are all these years later. Talking about it at augusta national right now.

"So I think it's setting up again. No one talking too much about Bubba. I'm glad you brought him up. But that is certainly someone that I have circled on my short list. Got it? Where do you think about Adam Scott? About 42 to 1. I'm not in love with that. I don't know that he's shown enough coming in. Like I said, there has to be some signs. I think there's only You know Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods that are maybe the only guys that can sort of do a 1 80 with their games at at Augusta National. I think that more more of the other players have to show some signs in other areas and Um, I think it's just been a little bit tough tips or get get the motor going for Adam. Um, you know, one of the most beautiful swingers of the golf club in the field, but just I don't know That's gonna be enough this week before we let you go. I just want to ask you is just from a pure golf standpoint and picking your golf brain. What do you think about Bryson to Shambo and What he has done and what he may do this weekend at Augusta, and he's definitely you know, kind of turn in the game on its ear, and we haven't heard anybody you know, be talked about in terms of you have to Proof the course for this guy coming up? We haven't heard anybody get that kind of rips its tiger. Backward tiger was Tiger. Right, And those two played a practice round on Monday, and they had a really interesting conversation. Tiger played its very first masters here in 1995 actually was in the car with him and his father, Earl, and we all drove down Magnolia Lane for the first time, and we're both. We're teammates. At Stanford, and he invited me to come with him. And I was like, Of course I'd love to, you know, come and support you and it was really need experience, and he sort of turned golf a little bit on its edge. He didn't quite turn it on its back yet He waited two years to do that. 97. But in 95 Tiger would hit pitching wedge into the 15th hole for a second shot the park five and that got the writers going and that got everybody going. Well yesterday. Rifle hit pitching wedge into the 15th Hall for a second shot. So it's not the first time that thing's air like this or being done. It's just by someone different and And I think that what Bryson is doing is forcing the industry as a whole. From the governing bodies to, uh, the respective tours and for the to the players. To sort of re evaluate where they're looking for improvement at And the way he's done it in the commitment that he's shown to get bigger to stay bigger, but also to maintain flexibility, strength, power and balance. And, you know, there's a reason that the world long drive guys aren't out here on tour because You can't hit a 50 Our pitch shot. Bryson can hit a 50 yard pitch shot as good as anybody up. He's tempting putting. He was 10. He was 1/10 best putter on the entire PGA Tour last year. So Not only hitting it further, but he's doing it with the other clubs in his bag, which often gets overlooked, but is just a CZ important in tournament golf. To make sure that you address all the disciplines required to win the big event. Hey, before you get out of here. Aah! Patrick can't lay. You know he has got the new putter. Um and he got real hot in the final round of the Zozo and real those guys in what do you think this is? A guy was on the lead at the Masters. Last year. Briefly you like, can't lay it all out all the 25 to 1. Yeah, I think that's that's a solid prob. I followed Patrick when In the final round. At those championship. I was with his group the whole way, and I got to see him sort of make that pushed toward the end and the shots that he hid under some pretty substantial pressure. We're pretty impressive, so You know when you look too major championship. Not only do you have to look at whether their game qualifies or is good enough to win the big events. But is, are they Emotionally strong enough to handle the moment. And I think that Patrick falls in that category of sort of being stable and strong enough mentally T Babel endure just everything that Augusta National and trying to win your first major and that being the Masters is going to throw at you.

"Are they going to give it a rip or they're going to go for they're going to play it safe. I think you said it is exciting because Is not a far five out there that you sit there and go. Oh, my goodness. Is it gonna be awesome? They the ones that are Are like, Let's say at Augusta National. They're exciting. Number 15 number 13. Why, so the guys could go for it, too, And there's the risk involved with it, And that's what's exciting about Goff, especially driveable, par four. I think you're right. I mean, number four. Number four is a great one for Morningstar. And I know Michael a few times has moved the tee boxes up instead of being at the tips. He might move him up to the greens or moving up to the white just to entice the guys. They all right. You want it. Here it is. I know. Yes. Michael. Michael loves it because he drives past the bunkers on the left, and it's either between on number four green or it's right off of number two's green, So he loves playing number for that morning star, do you, Michael? No point in playing the fourth old Maurice. Absolute. You go for older, Not all. Not always, I think. Well, I can't hit it all the time, depending on the wind, But 95% of the time I'm hitting driver off the tee. South wind Soviet helping when when it when they see the tailwind. So, yeah, we think that you get a view of the distance to do that. What's with your I mean, I think your perspective and this is going to be interesting competitively in tournament golf. If you've got a driveable par for it allows you to potentially the opportunity to make up ground. But also if it's a lay up, and I don't have a good one shot. Maybe I'm losing a shot to the field, right? Yeah, I know without a doubt, So we played in a program the other day at the woman's course, up with Sonja and the fourth or fifth hole or whatever. It's a short par four. And it's you know, kind of you gotta go around some big pines and Like. Well, I'm goingto give it a rip, You know, So why not? So drove it on the green just lived out my eagle putt, So, Yeah, There's risk reward in it. You know if I hit it a little farther, right? I'm a little bit of trouble If I hit it left, you know, I short side myself. Maybe don't get up and down, so there is that risk reward? And any time that you look at it, and the reward is greater than the risk because, yeah, there's risk, but I wasn't going to hit it out of balance. I probably wasn't going to hit it in the trees. So there was a lot of reward for me to try and go for that. Now on for a morning star, there's a lot more risk. No, you push it right. You're in those trees there. If I hook it a little, Yeah, it could be tough there, so it's a little tighter. There's more risk on number four than there is on some other ones, so, but it's always good when you have that I so love the concept of the driveable par for that, except for the classic tournament, so I want to see a driveable par forward Augusta places like that, but other golf courses when they sent him up to least out of one hole that way, We'll just be awesome because it brings him so many different layers of strategy. Into the whole thing. It's really it's really kind of interesting. Michael Thompson's career arc, I think is instructive. Michael, I want you to talk about this a little bit. At one point he was the number one amateur player in the world. He was the individual champion of South Eastern Conference in 2008 at Alabama. That's a very good golf conference. He lost in the finals of the 07 US Amateur. He was the low am at the 2008 U. S. Open in 2012. You came within a shot off, forcing a playoff with Webb Simpson at the US Open. At the Olympic Club out in San Francisco, and then the following year on tour. He won the Honda Classic, and you know at the time he was in his late twenties and thought of being one of the better younger players in the world, and after that kind of zilch Just kind of hung around on the fringe of the big tour didn't qualify for a major in 40 14 15 16 17 or 18 finally played the PGA last year. So am I wrong in saying it's anything it's not. There's not a tour quality player over the course of his career. He's made cuts about 65% of the terms he's played, but he's just not good enough to consistently contend. And there are a lot of guys on tour who kind of fit that same profile. My wrong. No, that is definitely correct. There are a lot of guys that are hanging around you, you know, reading a lot of the guys who like you said he was 1 50 One on the FedEx Cup points and trying to figure out where he might if he doesn't move up. Where is he going to play next year? And you're kind of bouncing around those those different tours and, you know, sometimes not winning some, you know, missing cuts doing things like that. There are there are hundreds of guys. Out there that are playing on both tours that are in that same boat as he is, and sometimes you know, you get yourself. You put so much pressure on yourself. You work so hard to get to a certain level and you get there and you win. That sometimes you just all sudden, either act. You finally, you know, Take the pedal off in you Exhale. And you maybe lose a little bit of that. That Dr. Not everybody has that hard. I won this week. I'm gonna win next week. I'm gonna win the week after you know that. Not everybody has that. But you get to that moment you win. And then sometimes what happens is people win so that maybe they get a little complacent. They don't practice. They don't put in the work that they normally did. They faked out great. I've won. I can just kind of handle it or then. Then they start making some mistakes in their golf game. Then they start changing things in their golf game. They start changing their swing a little bit starting doing different things. There and all of a sudden you don't have the success that you've had. And now you're doubting yourself, your you know, searching for things, but you're still a quality player being able. Anybody who's hanging around the tour and doing that is an amazing offer. For that, So I mean, there are so many guys that are out there. You know Charles Howell. He's second in top tens to Tiger Woods. You know, you don't seem in the leader for but he's second in top tens over his career, and he's made like 44 million out. I mean, it's unbelievable, so forget. I mean, it's just I just think it's it's testimony to how incredibly tough it is. To excel on the big tour. That's that's kind of what I'm driving at. I mean, these guys are all amazing players, but the difference between being sort of middle or back of the pack and being somebody who contends on a regular basis It is that is that a group of contenders is a fairly exclusive club. Yeah, well, I agree with everything, Michael said. Look, there's no doubt about it. Put in education terms. Mr. Thompson is a CD player on tour. In my opinion, uh, sees for degrees. I used to hear from somebody, but, uh, even see students get a day every once in a while, he's in a lab. I mean, that thing's win his way he held it together. Throughout the day, he nurses lead to the 72nd hole, where he needs a part of wind and made birdie by playing conservatively. Everything. Even the play of the others in contention fell in line for him, and he did exactly what he needed to do. It doesn't always go that way. Goes the other way a lot more often. A town out. There's incredible as we talk about every week, and it's incredibly difficult to come out on top. There's a lot more trunk slammers, and there are guys getting interviewed by my love. That's a great trunk slam. Moving on to the next. The next venue. Absolutely that that's a very, very funny thing..

It's just a magnet person story of not only have let -ccomplish but personal redemption for an Lundquist here on the rich Eisen show described the scene to me just looking around from your perspective in the tower. Just watching everybody. Go nuts when that ball almost hold out on sixteen. Please. Well, it's it's I'm very very prejudice. Obviously. But I've been sitting at that spot for twenty years now, and in my view, yes, I know eleven and twelve is very special obviously surrounding eighteen but at sixteen. They almost encircle all of the green around the pond and behind it up on the hill. I can sit behind the tower and look at second third shots at fifteen and putz, obviously, I can turn behind me and physically see the six told and what's going on there, and I can watch T shots and seventeen. So I don't think anybody who's privileged to be at Augusta National has a better viewing spot in me. And to watch the emotion, it's so different. And he's so different. And I think that's what makes us such an amazing compelling story that we can all brace. He's you know. And he's he's he's I'm I'm a better human being gymnasts. I thought having a great day, and he had a great. Great note when he did the interview with tiger live that. Say Charlie the son had written his dad note and said dad, my my I guess for Christmas. I'm not sure my my one wishes to see you when of golf tournament and Tigra alluded to that at the open last year. He had his kids Charlie and Sam with him. And he they'll go short. So this and the hut. The embrace. That he gave both those guys and his mother was something that will series for as long as we have memories Verne Lundquist here on the rich Eisen show. What are the, you know, some are obvious? Some might not be which is why I'm asking you the similarities between tiger twenty nineteen in Jack nineteen Eighty-six Vern well age import I listened to the golf channel guys. And they got hold of Jack on the phone last night in the Bahamas. He had been here during the week. I happened to see him after the champions dinner on Tuesday night. And and he said he watched all the turn from from the tiny the way Jack. But from the time Molinari found Molnar found the water at twelve and and went down in the green Jackson. I knew tiger was gonna win. This thing. Jack was forty six Tigers forty three. So that too. Oldest champions ever at Augusta. They are arguably the two greatest golfers who've ever lived all of a sudden, I was among those I didn't think he had a chance to years ago coming back and playing, and I didn't believe rich that he was changed person. I now understand that he truly is that he's he's he's changed the way he approaches his life and his interactions with people that may be the most endearing thing about all this, and then the physical accomplishment of what he did was was comparable to what Jack Jack dot. Shop thirty on the back nine. At the age of forty six. That's and he said yesterday, you know, nobody wants to have their records broken. But he said I was hearing tiger like everybody else. Tigers knock that fifty majors and he's still three sure Jack, and I'm still inclined to not I inclined to not believe he's going to catch Jack.

Like Phil does so well and how those guys even at us. The Johnson has to be able to handle those couple of moments. Otherwise, the you know, you wind up with a triple bogey on this cost.

You need to have elements of both because Augusta National is. It's it's a it's a course it's about angles. And it's a course that that makes you suffer. When you make a core shot, you have to be able to recover and the point. I was making was in reference to the fact that the last twenty two years combined the winters have only had combined for double bogeys may make a double bogey. It's not so much the arithmetic of the double bogey which obviously set you back to shots. It's what it says about your game that week and your decision making. If you get on the wrong side, obviously if you're in if you're completely out of position. Well, it says something about your your skill that week. It says something about your decision making. And if you can't recover it says a lot about your nerves. The thing about Dustin Johnson is he he is, you know, arguably the most counted player in the world. But when he comes to Augusta National he's used to beating golf courses up, and he hasn't been able to escape a week without two sometimes three really big mistakes. He's made an eight trips sixteen double bogeys, triple bogey. You know, these are just too big of the stakes because the eventually the winner is the guy who. Yeah, he's bowled. But he's got great nerve. And he doesn't make those big mistakes. Yeah. Great point and Johnson who just overpowers the five. I mean, it's just unbelievably just went to six on their day is now seven on the Molinari seven-under and Molinari is a guy that America doesn't pay enough attention to because he is a known that we've seen him win last year the open we've seen him win this year when he posted that sixty four in the last thing in one at Bay Hill. He we don't see that much. But he is as steady as a rock. I could see him being very tough on the front of a tournament. Yeah. He's a player is completely remade himself. He was always a very good ball striker in a poor putter. It was never what I'd say. An elite ball striker. He's become an elite ball striker and one of the better putters, and he. Put those two together. Okay. Now, the hidden completely different player. You've taken your game to a unimaginable level. I mean, that's what every player dreams of being. I was very curious to watch concepts co- come in this week. I said it nearly run-up coverage because he comes in here for the first time ever a threat on the greens. And the combination of his ability workers way around a golf course and hit hot fades off draw lives. That's very important at Augusta National. It's it's formidable. So I am on a little bit surprised that he's at the top of the leaderboard right now. But not not hugely. So he has done such a great job today of being on the right side of the fairway to a left hand. And then on the left side of the fairway to a right pain. And then keeping it underneath that cat. He did a beautiful job of that today. I'm going to talk about it tonight and our show I'll use examples Palley kept himself that needs the whole. So he could be aggressive on his putts. He's gonna be great great fun to watch. He couldn't be any more different than Jay. Jason day who's a top. Again in Princess co. You have tactician Jason day. You have a scrambler. And he's he's maybe the best grammar over the last five good around agreeing. You don't love him. You don't love him the green. But you love them around the green, right? No. That's right. He he's one of the very p players that could could have an off week with his irons and still contended Augusta because he's just a magician. He's seventy ask around the greens. And I tell you he is red hot right now. And this is going to be unbelievable because. For some reason guys who lead all great the second day. And today, I was worried about KEPCO because it's funny. I heard you talking about kept currently in the week who hadn't played a lot. I watched them. I watched it at the Honda where he was almost in the playground Mitchell. One at the last minute hit the hit the fifteen foot putt. And they didn't have the playoff with him in Fowler. He's been a great player in the in the majors the last couple of years. And then there was this whole thing about his weight. And then yesterday, he looked dominant. I mean, he was scary yesterday. He did he looks fabulous yesterday. Just you know on the whole I I've looked at his results here. He's trended in the right direction. What I found shocking to me was that he had lost all this weight in preparation for the ESPN. What all it's it's an athletic shoot. I mean, I think they're all naked when they. Yeah. Yeah. He's lost all this weight for that. And as he did the nuance of his game, slightly deteriorated. He was nowhere near as good around the greens. And he's nowhere near as good lag. Putty. I felt like that was pretty reckless. And I thought through the week it would show up. Look he played brilliantly yesterday. But today he's missed number of shots to left. It's three potted a couple of times and has a result. He's no longer on top of the leaderboard. I mean, certainly still in a very good position. But but he's made a few big mistakes today. You know, everybody raved. And I'm not the biggest worry guy. Okay. Everyone raved about Rory all week on the golf channel. And I understand why the way he's played this year. But I keep thinking to myself. Hey until I see Rory come here. And putt these greens would confidence I'm not buying. And then yesterday, I watched him where he against so many times couldn't make that six foot or couldn't make that seven footer. And then today I see him right now. He's all he's over for the he's plus one for the day today. He's plus two for the tournament. He sent right on the cut line. And you know, everybody expected so much. What are you seeing from Rory right now? Well, you know last year everybody remembers to shots from ROY. Really? They remember the drive on one on Sunday. And then remember the puppet he missed the point the show. And so from that they just assume that he putted poorly only one player in the field last year put it better than Rory McElroy. And that was Patrick read only one Patrick Reid had an unprecedented unprecedent week on the greens last year. I mean, maybe nobody's ever put it bet. Well, so that's how well ROY putted these screens last year, and he is this year putting better than he's ever played in his life yesterday. I think if if I were if I think ROY was sitting next to me, I think yesterday was more about what was going on between his ears than anything else. I think the the pressure of trying to complete the career grand slam the build up to it. None of the five previous players who completed a career grand slam would have had. I mean, they would have had virtually no pressure. I have gone back. And I've looked at all the press clippings of all their run up to the major championships where they completed the career. Grand slam. Neri? A word was written about them trying to complete a career grand slam. Nothing nothing. Even Jack Nicklaus said it wasn't even a thought nobody talked to them about. And there is nobody that doesn't talk about this with Rory. It's all over social media every time he walks into a media room. It's the first second or third question. He gets. So I do believe that it's it's a bit of a hurdle that he's going to have to figure out how to get over interesting. I and obviously he's got a hurdle now in this time right now with we sitting was only brainless generally as we get ready. People driving home getting ready for the weekend. You got. You always have a stack leaderboard at Augusta that we know that. So you gotta stack leaderboard got basically a who's who from rom at five to Mickelson at five to six to Johnson at six days seven Molinari area seven you can go back to two and three. And you got Tiger Woods, and we can go down the line how how many strokes? I mean, minus two minus one how far back do you think you can be right now and still win this tournament? Can you be even Paul right now done? History says after the second round the last twenty two years the eventual winner was in third place after the second round well third place. So Augusta National very quickly eliminates those that have no chance I mean, I guess the national ask a very specific set of skills. The accomplished you have to be able to work the ball right left off the tee and you have to be able to hit high cuts off hook lies. If you can't do that. You really don't have any chance, and that's what mall and Oregon. Do. That's what John Ron can do. I'm curious to watch Dustin Johnson. You know, I again, I mean it which prize nobody if he won. No. But I'm you know, again, he has that beautiful high caught up a lot and he has that beautiful state, but he doesn't quite have the draw. So he has to take a different tack on say the thirteenth the thirteenth today. He tried to take it over the trees clattered around in the trees. You know, and and the same thing with Brooks kept they have to they have to risk a little danger because they're not easily able to go to the draw and sweep it around the corner. They have to challenge the corner. So they can do it's only the links, but I'll be curious. I mean, the the courses so well designed it asked fluidity all the way through the bag to play well here, let me get the two guys. Both fascinating stories one. Of course is the obligatory tiger just got his gotten to read for the day on six. So he's one on there. He's three on the for the tournament whereas Tigers game. And where do you see him right now sitting four strokes off the lead?.

"Continuing coverage of the masters from Augusta National Golf club. More to come to. We're back in New York with the NBA exit interviews for the Lakers on Wednesday. They looked to pick up the pieces after the shocking departure of Magic Johnson Tuesday night. Lebron James not on hand yesterday. And neither Luke Walton or rob linka spoke. So ask for the players who did they were all caught off guard just like all of us. To be on the house a little bit shocked. Just like everybody else was it wasn't no predicted or nobody had you know that on their minds. But you know, we say it all the time with the players is no different from front office or anybody. You know, the one thing you can do in life is to do his best for you. And for magic. He's Magic Johnson. He doesn't need. No proved anybody anything, and you know, he just made the the best decision for him shock me. Like it did the rest of the world. But you know, what's best for him. You know? I wish him the best, you know, draft me. Yeah. This is better for life in. That's what he wants to do. You know support hundred percent. Okay. Let's welcome in NBA insider Adrian word you now. Ski would it's been about thirty six hours since magic abruptly walked off as the president of the Lakers. What are people saying about the atmosphere over there right now? Well, the word I heard yesterday around that facility was awkward you had rob Pelinka who's who's the general manager of the team in exit meetings with Luke Walton and Luke Walton knew very well that Magic Johnson rob Pelinka or planning to fire him yesterday. And that all changed Luke Walton went from not even being scheduled to be a part of the exit conversations with players to sitting in there with his general manager and still trying to figure out what's his future with the organization. There were reports that the Lakers were shocked by the move. Do. You have any sense as you mentioned, Luke Walton once they've regained their footing. If they put together any kind of plan to move forward. And what that looks like. They're still trying to formulate that Laura that Luke Walton has next year on his contract, and then a team option for two thousand twenty one and they've got a decided to as an organization how they're gonna go Ford who's going to really be making the basketball. The citizens is going to be rob Pelinka, the general manager are they going to go out of the marketplace and looked to hire a sitting general manager somewhere else in a league or somebody else who's not working who's available. Those are the questions facing Jeanie Buss here and Luke wall in future is going to be dependent a lot. I will kind of management decision..

"But that is not enough to. To change. What has been a historically great program and all of the benefits of playing their whole the benefits of trying to get guys to come to a place like Los Angeles over middle of nowhere, Texas or middle of nowhere. I alwa- or Minnesota any place. It's just I think we become so used to it not being as relevant that we start to accept some of the excuses. They've given themselves with other people have given them that are just s to me. It's just a program is not built on. How many superstar highlights you see you can tell that by team like Texas Tech or even UVA right? We see a lot about them. But that doesn't mean that that you know, we spend a lot of time raving over the highlights in the big time plays and putting them on sportscenter sufficient, they get it done. That'll will come back to what UCLA wants because you're not wrong about that my mind like begins aga-, you know, we always talk about Gonzaga being consistently very good. And again, Oregon this year, they went on a little run, right? And it can happen. But it just depends on what UCLA basket. Ball wants to be if they want to build a program around super super, huge high recruits. I don't I don't know that that's going to be there possibility which means they're going to have to accept. We wanna build slow and steady wanna be like barbecue slow and low that takes a little level of patients that I don't know that UCLA. Yeah. Right. That's desperation to get back its benefit. Speaking of desperation, by the way, Anthony Davis desperate to get out of New Orleans and Nick Redel reporting that tonight he showed up he hasn't been able to play for a while. Because of what the pelicans are calling lower back spasms. But he missed tonight's season. Finale showed up at the at the arena to face the Golden State Warriors wearing a that's all folks shirt or as the famous porcupine line at the end of looney tunes. And of course, the message that he has for everybody in New Orleans. It was on the pelicans insta- story was later deleted when I guess they realized they weren't sure what the sentiment was behind it. Right. Was it in screw you guys? I'm outta here. Or was it wasn't. You know, that was fun. This is the end. God, I hope they somehow make him stay for next year to just make him. Stay just prove a point.

"Obviously. One second shown very easy very excited about this former UCLA player, and as UCLA continued it search finally today happened upon someone anyone willing to take on the job before the name was announced. This is what he had to say about. How embarrassing the search had become look, I am a die-hard Bruin ongoing. I'm going to support my program all the way throughout but this is embarrassing. We've had one hundred days to figure out who our next head coach is going to be there are other programs that have made their decision in less than a week. We have in the last week publicly seemingly offered the job to two different head coaches that both turned us down. This is not a good. Look they need to rectify the situation. Go ahead. Well, and he's right and Mick Cronin has been hired Cincinnati head coach. But but Sarah, and this is going to sound particularly harsh. I'm sorry UCLA fans. It is time to accept that your program is now what I call a leverage program. I mean what happened? I mean when Rick Barnes was part of the conversation. Tennessee head coach, I said it on Memphis wanna talk to our buddies over there, the SPN affiliate the other day when when the conversation started with Rick Barnes. I don't think Rick Barnes ever had the intention of going to UCLA. He looked at UCLA is an opportunity to get he and his assistant coaches at Tennessee more money. I mean who would have ever thought that UCLA basketball would become the sort of job that you use for leverage to get a raise where you are. And that's where they are. And I it's unfortunate, and it's a cycle. I don't know how to break because not only does UCLA to a certain extent. I do agree with that. But there is sort of a difficulty when you play on the west coast, and we saw I mean how. Many people watch Oregon basketball this year. How many people watch Pac twelve football? This is always the the problem it's harder to accomplish stardom. And it's harder to get some of these kids to come out and wanna play on the west coast. When you combine that with the faculty are not great each. So yet that second part is the important part. It should not be difficult to recruit kids to play in Los Angeles at a program like UCLA in a beautiful city on a beautiful campus. Absolutely. This should not be an issue. Whether or not they are not as many people watching at that hour of the day come on man if this team gets wins and becomes a contender. Again. That's a great place to play. We've just gotten so lulled into looking for the reasons why it's not a good program or not somewhere that people wanna be you get the right coach. And you bring the winds back, and you manage to recruit there again. That's a great place to be the problem is you're right. It's just it's it's gotten to the point where you're you're wooing people from Texas Christian or Tennessee, and they don't want to leave right at. You know, I think that they can dig themselves out of this whole, but it's gonna take a little bit of time. And it's gonna take patience and they haven't been to a final four and more than a decade. They haven't won a national championship in almost twenty five years, but they have a name, and they have a great place to play if they can just get the right kids to show up in an actually get some wins. I don't disagree with that. I think it will take a couple of years of deep tournament runs to make them relevant. Again. I'll go back to something. And I know college football's and a little bit different spectrum. But it was a great point made by the Pac twelve when I was a college football seminar for ESPN talking to the people from the conference in their point was and if a touchdown happens early in the game on college football Saturday in an early game. You spend all day seeing that touchdown over and over and over again for the back twelve by the time they play at night. Unfortunately, the highlight would come the next morning and by then everybody's onto the NFL on Sunday mornings. It's sort of the unfortunate you re with you. Listen, I'm not I'm not saying that there, isn't that element..

"Even in such a stressful moment, that's tough to do. And I think the message it sends to people is to play golf together to enjoy it. And we'll certainly encourage more people to play I wonder as you were getting ready for this tournament. Did you dream of playing the masters at your dream of getting to play Augusta? I had actually played it two years ago. Obviously before that I always had wanted to play it. I mean, I think every every kid wants to play Gus national a big other big name courses. So I think yeah, it was always a wish for me. But I think it was even greater to get to play in a tournament setting given the the history that was made in the outcome, and sort of the way it took the world by storm has there been anybody. That's reached out to you to say congrats that you've had to look at your phone. A couple of times and say, oh my God. I can't believe they reached out. I mean. Yeah, I got I got one from Ian Poulter, Freddie, Couples Texan me Nelly Korda PGA. I mean, I think there's even more. That's crazy Curtis. Strange. I mean, I mean, I could go on their list. That's crazy. What a great feeling Jennifer Cup show. Impressive back-nine eagle on thirteen three birdies in the final four holes after it's all over you've gone into the room where everyone gets their green jackets. You get you get the bowl you give it a kiss. And what does it mean? Now, what does this mean going forward for women's golf at amateur and LPGA level? I think just to be in that same place where the green jacket is given. I mean, I mean so much. I mean, everyone wants to be there. And I'm sure it will there will be even more support in the future years. And I think the PGA. I don't know if they fully support it completely right now. But I know that they will in the future really support this tournament just because it gives so much excitement to women's golf and for and I who have our PGA cards and are going on tour. I think it's just gonna be become a great atmosphere, and you will always be the first ever women's winner. At Augusta National at that women's amateur wouldn't exciting thing. Thanks for making time to talk with us today. Jennifer, thank you so much for having me what a thrill and this is masters week, which means a whole bunch of people.

"You know, I just spoke about this on the show, but I was really moved by his eleven year old younger son coming out as gay and being at the Miami pride with Gabrielle union, Duan's wife, and and receiving this tons of support from the whole family that was there all decked out in rainbow gear, and Dwayne Wade shouting it on his Instagram and saying that they all support each other with pride that's a real tough age to do that and have the support of a professional athlete at Dwayne Wade's level. It's honestly probably a measurable, the the impact that that can have on kids around the country that are worried about the reaction to their sexuality or or how their parents might feel and having that person to look up to his massive will. And and when you think about everything so much of what we heard about the impact to Miami. These are the moments that you realize it for some athletes, especially athletes, for whatever reason, you know, with both of these athletes are there personified with the cities that they're in. And when you think about Miami and the community of Miami that looks up. Dwayne wade. He continues to use that platform for some sort of better. Good some sort of bigger good. I it's bigger than it's bigger than basketball. And that's Budweiser video showed a whole bunch of that. Right people whose lives he had very directly touched. And that's the I think the biggest takeaway from me today is that you know, the conversation is on a basketball court because that's where so much of the legend was made. But you're talking about guys that that took that basketball court and figured out how to make that platform a thousand times a million times bigger and to affect lives for generations. And that that's what what we're seeing. Today isn't just a celebration right now isn't just a celebration of twain Wade, the the the star basketball player, Dwayne Wade. The Miami Heat started this is a celebration of Dwayne Wade the human being and what he's done for the city of Miami. And that's I think the most special thing that has come across as we've continued to talk to people that have been so close to him throughout his journey coming up next.

"So I I think our sport is healthier as a result because the more talent you can inject too. You know, those frontline positions. I think the more aesthetically pleasing our game is to our fans what kind of emotions do you think you'll have tonight watching that final? I'm game. Oh, man. It's definitely going to be emotional. It's hard to believe it's been twenty one years seems like yesterday he had he Nash and had those really bad. Blonde ambition haircuts at their opening press conference with my dad, but no, it's just it's really hard to believe. It's it's over. And you know, the things that the fans don't see is, you know, the kind of leadership that is avoid that's just very very difficult. He's a lead, by example guy. He's played at the highest level. He's been at the lowest of lows in terms of the valleys, you know, that I go around when we didn't win the championship was very very difficult. And so no, I think were were really losing a ah basketball treasurer and a lot of respects that it just can't be replaced. We're talking to Don Nelson GM president of basketball operations for the Dallas Mavericks on Spain and fit, Sarah. Jason fitz. You've mentioned leadership a couple of times in Luca Danni his name. And and I really have to ask what has what is Dirk meant to Lucas development over the course of this year. Ever player. You know, from you know, you know, Luca Tocchet Pete's all of our guys. Really, you know, the example that he's set both on and off the floor and to be able to share locker room space, you know, pick up a couple of tips and just be around just a gem of human being like that is it's a lot of respects. It's you know, it's it's the highlight of you know, one's early career in in those guys cases talking to Donnie Nelson GM president of basketball operations for the Mavs. You know, you talk about leadership, and there's also something about deciding to stay in the place that you were drafted and not going ring chasing. I've heard you talk about how you're happy. He spent his whole career in Dallas. And he got calls from all the big boys and could have done somewhere else. But he stayed that not only affects his career and how he's remembered, but maybe the younger guys who are looking up to. Can you talk about what that means to an organization to know that he's loyal to you even as there's so much going on in the way of player empowerment and movement. Tell you what mistaken age, we're seems like, you know, guys changed teams like shirts. It's very very rare and Sarah. He he chose us a number of times. I mean when we drafted him back in the day. He didn't have to come here. He could have played in Europe for a couple of years Alexa bonus. And some of the other guys he chose to come here and to roll up the sleeves with Nash and Finley and those guys and then when he hit free agency, he got calls from all of the big boys out there that were knocking on doors, and it would've been a much easier road to win a championship. Honestly. And he he was loyal to Dallas's loyal to the franchise. And I just wish that was more commonplace. But when guys like Dirk and Kobe, and and the like, you know, hang them up. It's just it's. It's really really a tional because we have been have been just spoiled rotten for twenty one years Donnie on an incredible night. We appreciate you giving us a little time. Thank you so much for joining us more from anytime guys. Appreciate it.

"And when he got here showed no apprehension whatsoever. I think Dirk had a healthy kind of respect for the jump that. He was making from Mayberry Germany, and it took him, you know, the full year and a half to kind of get a sea legs. But once he kicked in you know, he he never looked back. Was there a balanced for coming in make because you talk about the adjustment to the game of basketball? But he's also Justin to life in the US. I mean, how did he balance that in the beginning? Yeah. No. I mean to your point look, you know, we had to teach him where the Bank was how to bounce checkbook, you know, how to get groceries. I mean, it's literally literally or in a brand new culture. And that's where you know, certainly having you know, the city and the community, and you know, the Mavericks and having guys like Finley in Nash back in the day. The kind of teach him the ropes was extremely important. Donnie, Nelson GM president of basketball operations for the Dallas Mavs Spain and fits or Spain and Jason Fitz. So obviously even back at the Nike hoop summit. You saw he could ball put up thirty plus, but how long into his time with the Mavs before you really knew that you had this hall of fame generational player. Well, it was really you're too. I think when you really saw him kind of get confidence and come into his own, you know, year one really for, you know, any rookie, you know. Sands. The superstars is is really one of learning. So yeah, it was really kind of your to where you saw him to start to kind of get that that confidence a swagger. We're talking to Johnny Nelson GM president of basketball operations for the Dallas Mavericks. I'm gonna ask you a really difficult question here. But if you have to look back at the body of work, Dirk is there one particular moment that stands out as your all time favorite. Well, yes, it's it's when he brought a trophy and a parade the Dallas. And it's the first time in history. That's the city that we experienced that. He sang a very very bad rendition of we are the champions. Then. Yeah. That's that was remembered for many many years, you know, I wanna ask you about Dirk the person you've already alluded to it. But there are so many anecdotes about him. How he has an unlikely superstar won a great guy. He is can you tell us about the man off the court may be an anecdote or to that kind of shine a light on who he is outside of basketball. Well, I mean, you you can go no further than our last game. I mean here he is. He just you know, played a full contingent of minutes. And I walk out, you know, my door which happens to overlook the practice court in you know, in the bowels of the American Airlines center, and it's about eleven o'clock at night, and he is down there with attorney ill make a wish kid shooting jump shots and playing horse. I mean, it just shows the kind of part and compassion that he has for kids and certainly kids in need. And you know, really what kind of a humble superstar. He is. You mentioned the word superstar dear Dirk is obviously impacted not only the world. But specifically he's impacted the NBA. How has he changed the NBA? Well, I think you know, really the power forward position. And a lot of respects, you know, prototypical, if it was kind of one of those enforcer positions, I think Burke, injected skill into it not just being able to stretch defenses, you know, but to be able to, you know, put the ball on the ground, and, you know, you know, have the versatility of inside out in a lot of ways he kind of you know, maybe redefine the power for position a different way. But equally as effective as a guy like Kevin Garnett that did it with us lettuces them. And you know, all the things that he brought to the game..

"Park. And that formulates a lot of my opinions. And and that's all I am penny guy gets he in some very fortunate on Sunday afternoon, sit here and give you my opinion a lot of things, and we're talk today about a lot of things. Abilities. Just commonsense opinion on current events. And boy, there's just common sense as missing dang it. It just is. And there's a lot of things in common sense that just sticks out to me. I'm just guy that reads, the paper and reads online and watch stories, and I find myself after every one of those gone, well that's stupid or that's a good idea. And I just haven't opinion. So I get chance on Sunday afternoons to share here. We're gonna talk a lot about what's going on across the country. Let's start today with what happened last night to me. The big story is the jackets Columbus, blue jackets quest for the Stanley Cup. Now last night, they they won in Ottawa and because North Carolina the Carolina Hurricanes loss, the jackets. Take on Tampa Bay Lightning round one of the quest for the Stanley Cup. So here's your schedule. First game is Tampa Bay is number one top of the seed chart number one seating. They will take on the blue jackets and Tampa Bay Wednesday that says Wednesday seven pm, so the jackets. Traveled to Tampa to take on the lightning Wednesday at seven o'clock, then again Friday at seven pm that's game to then they returned to Columbus. Next Sunday at seven pm in the following Tuesday at seven pm, it's best of seven series. So the following games. The rest of the games game five six and seven or to be determined based off of the outcome of the first four. So the jackets face Tampa. My thought on that is real simple. And that is Tampa Bay is a Tampa, the Tampa lightning is fast. They are. They are a fast team with a lot of offense. They can score. At will almost seems like as you watch them through the season. They scored the most goals this year with three hundred nineteen goals in the regular season. The next closest is San Jose and cow Gorie at two hundred eighty nine goals. That's thirty goals less think about that. I want the jackets to do. Well, I don't want to go down and lose every game out of the get go get knocked out after after four games. That would be a shame. It's happened before. Let's not let that happen. We need them to get past round. One is what we need for the jackets. But they're up against the reality is my common sense is going to get beat by Tampa Bay. Now they can win. Yes. They can win somebody's gotta check them hard. And they gotta hit them hard. It's got to be a physical game. You got to slow them down. Earle? Bruce used to be on this radio station for years said speed kills and he's right. Earl Bruce used always say Ohio State would win a lot of games because they're faster than other teams in the game of sport is like that sports is just a fast game, especially in hockey and usually the faster team with a better skills wins Tampa has faster and better skilled, but hopefully we saw him down and make a competition out of it again, Tampa seems like they score. Will they are the highest scoring team this year in the NHL with three hundred nineteen. Goals the next closest thirty goals, less thirty. We're not talking three or five or seven. We're talking thirty three hundred nineteen goals. Scored by Tampa Bay Lightning. This year the next closest San Jose Sharks and Calgary at thirty goals less a two eighty nine the blue jackets ranked twelfth this year and goals scored at two hundred and fifty six doesn't bode well when the Tampa Bay Lightning score three nineteen in the jackets to fifty six, but the jackets turned it around a little bit after the trades and certainly brought on offense. And I think they can they can win. They just have to slow Tampa Bay down. Tampa Bay ranks number seven or jackets rank number seven in goal goals or Tampa Bay excuse me ranked number seven goals against given up tour and twenty one goals. Jackets rank eleventh with two hundred thirty one goals somebody at play golf yesterday. And look this up said Bob Ross key has never brought in every playoff game. We've played but Brodsky's give up three goals or more. I didn't look that up. But I heard that. And I thought yeah, that doesn't surprise me. We got we're not going to shut Tampa Bay down. We're not going to shut their offense down. We're not going to beat them by bias score one to nothing these going to be high scoring games. The jackets are just gonna outscore. They're gonna have to keep the score low Tampa Bay's number one in the power play scoring with twenty point two percent of the time. The jackets ranked twenty eighth scoring in the power play fifteen point four percent of the time. So that's one of the problems jackets face and a stay out of the penalty box. You get to keep all men on the ice to win Tampa Bay and the jackets. Are tied for first in the penalty kill keeping your pundits scoring eighty less. Eighty five percent of the time or keeping them from scoring eighty five percent of the time. Again, the jackets are up against the wall on this. It's going to be tough. They can do it. But they've got to play their best hockey. It's got to be flawless fact is that Vegas has the jackets going out and five games. That's not good because Vegas doesn't lose much money. Jackets in the postseason again, first game Wednesday last night and NCW basketball. The other big story. And commonsense opinion is this the final game is tomorrow night, Texas, Tech Virginia, and for those folks from Auburn that are complaining about the foul and complaining about the double dribble. The end of the day, you didn't lose because of that games and sports don't come down to one play or one one one possession. It always comes down to the full game. You know, that I know that just commonsense opinion quit your whining just like the saints did in the postseason in the NFL. Yes. My opinion that was interference. But the fact is there are a lot of other points in that game. They could have won that game in the same with last night tomorrow night. Texas Tech Virginia face off game tip off. I think is nine ten pm at sun CBS again tomorrow night. My favorite week of the year this week because it's a masters. It's truly my favorite week of the year. I'm a golfer. I love golf, and I think there's something spectacular about Augusta Georgia in the masters. It's the only golf tournament in the world that always plays the exact same course year after year. But what makes us so special exists? Again, commonsense opinion to golf course on never play. I could I could become a billionaire could become rich and famous. I'll never played on. Never remember. And most of you never have either never played it never will hell, it's it's a chore just to get on the course to see it. Because it's tough to get tickets yesterday was the women's Amador at Augusta National. It was social conic change. If you ask me again. Augusta National Golf club. One of their missions is to grow the game of the sport grow the game grow Goff. And they've done a wonderful job of turning things around and doing exactly exactly that. Because yesterday at Augusta National women were walking fairways and playing the golf course at Augusta National Golf club the week before the masters fantastic famous. Unbelievable. The final round it was a final round of the inaugural and Augusta National women's Amador who's won by girl named Jennifer Cuco Cup. Sh co-. I say it wrong all the time. Wake Forest university. It was the highest rated Amador golf telecast and television history men's or women's in sixteen years with a phenomenal rating, again, the highest rated Amador golf telecast and television in well over sixteen years of any any gender that tells me the eyeballs were watching I was at heritage golf club. After playing golf yesterday. It was on all the TV screens and the folks in the pub yesterday. Were rooting for this. It was almost like watching a NFL football game. It was spectacular. It was great to see the grind coming down to the end. It. What makes it so special again as a golf course that you, and I will never play and most people in life will never see the spectacular. Splendor the beauty of gusty National Golf court club hosting women's golf yesterday for one round was phenomenal. Now, remember, we're only eight nine years removed from women going down and protect protesting at Augusta National Golf club because it's a private golf club in no women were allowed at the time eight to nine years or so later, you got golfers on the course yesterday who are women playing Augusta National. It's fantastic. It was social iconic change for that to happen golf, the problem with golf one of the problems with golf is it seen as a old white man golf old white man's sport. And yesterday prudent very differently Gusta national has the has the melons to make that change and to make that change. Change in effect, an influence kids and people cross country forever spectacle. Yesterday was phenomenal is beautiful. It was unbelievable. I got a great story about the masters. I got a great story about a Gusta National Golf Club. Got a buddy of plate at.

And unfortunate news yesterday, Lucy Lee from Redwood City withdrew with a thumb injury. She fell and hurt herself and Lucy Lee will will not be playing there. But but pretty cool as a as a kind of a build up to the master's next week, Tom. Yeah. No doubt about it. This is gonna be a monumental event for the women's game. It's going to generate already has generated a lot of excitement. I it's I I can remember growing up in the early cable days where that first Thursday show of the masters coming on the air at around what noon, one o'clock Pacific time, your first view of Augusta that year who are shot was whoever the player was you just couldn't wait to see the course. And now, of course, we've had the Dr Shipman pot, which is showcase really the practice facilities and the eighteenth hole in the last few years. Now, you're going to have the women's and concluding on again. Two national the Saturday before the masters, so it's going to give everybody a sneak peek of the course and more importantly give as you say John some of the most prominent women's amateurs from around the globe, great exposure, great attention. So this is an exciting exciting year, and it it's just there's more to come. I think Augusta has really been at the forefront here with the with the Amador tournament. Asian amateur Latin American Amador now women damaged or really trying to grow the game globally. And then bring all those young players boys and girls men and women to Augusta National with a chance to compete. So big props to them. It'll be fun to keep track of that of that. Well, Tom is we let you go. I'm just gonna remind you two guys you've already made your picks for the masters yet. I think I'm usually at Brooks KEPCO. And I and I and I think you said Charles Howell the third, right? Jim furic in the field is probably did say. Pick anybody could be and and I'm I'm gonna go ahead and go tiger with very nice. Yeah. Nice adjustment. Even if he loses today matching chaining pick. I saw one shot that he hit which was a left handed shot on his knees under the Bush, and he knocked it up to about ten feet. How can you not pick that guy? Yeah. Hold out from the fairway yesterday. Just things are trending in the right direction. And I know Tom you've probably have seen this club. Pro guy on Twitter, and he did an analysis of tiger swing on his knees. And said that his his spine angle was wrong and players normally miss it to the right and yes tiger. Did. That was very funny. Yeah. How about let's do a swing analysis of the of the shot that got him there in the first place. That's the one they should be criticizing exactly. Left-handed what led to that? All right, Tom. I know you're a fitness guy. Go lead the girls in the calisthenics and best. We've already done that we already did that an hour ago. So we're we're headed the game. You're John parents have the the Starbucks cups and the little seats and the little banners and now pitcher it now if your daughter scores the goal while we're still on the air call in. There'll be there'll be a fist pump. There'll be no yelling. Maybe a little yellow, but there'll be a Soviet fist bump in a congratulatory phone call to you guys. Thanks, Tom talk to you. All right. Good deal that you know. That's if you could hit rewind on your life. I'd love to go back to those days when my kids were playing stuff. I absolutely loved that. Yeah. And I had to two kids playing at the same time. Yeah. Often in the same complex in Burlingame. And I would bring three shirts. I had a parent shirt coaches shirt because I coached one of the teams. Okay. And then I had my referee shirt. Oh left. I had three different duties on that well that morning. So I I used to hate it. When the kids both had a game the same day at different parks. So we tried to decide who's gonna who's who's game. What who finishes and then drive over here? And where we going to eat go through. Guess rolled over one morning. My son Michael was about seven at the time. And we're on California Dr. Yeah. And I got pulled over by a motorcycle cop for speeding or Michael's is as big as a saucer, and he was like. Am I gonna make the scene stuff like this on jail? I love it. Pretty funny stuff. Yeah. Hey, Mitch tax returns are in the mail. The salmon season's about to open good and the Pacific sail and power boats show is next week April four through seven at the marina bay yacht harbor in Richmond..
