"bamberger" Discussed on The Moment with Brian Koppelman

"Hey this is the moment brian compliment. Thanks for listening my guest today. Showered for the podcast. Not knowing podcasts. Were audio only. That's the kind of actually. It says something really great. About how immersed you are and what you do. Why trifle with things like how podcasts. Or even though you you do many podcasts. Allen my guest today is the brilliant michael bamberger who is a arguably the finest sports writer currently working. And if you're a friend of mine who's a sports writer and you're listening I said among so that your feelings would get hurt Michael bamberger has just written a new book about tiger woods called michael. The second life for tiger woods. Brian i was very artfully worded. Because you know how sensitive we sports writers are despite the you know the odd couple in every other cliche come down through the years about clouds. We are so nicely worded can expect. No i do. I do know because when i covered the masters for sports illustrated that ye couple years back. I wrote something about the way i noticed. Sports writers talking amongst themselves and quite a few of your brethren were annoyed at me for that and i thought it was hilarious. How set as someone. Who's my work is as yours is written about all the time and I've learned to just roll with it and not judge someone personally but i could tell man. Sports writers do not like if you do what they do to them and we conditioner like. Nobody's business so it's really the ultimate in double standard memory. Enjoyed radio yourself when you're down there. I think you were hanging out with chris stone and and others of nice is probably about two or three years ago now and i have a vague memory but told me that they have a right that you particularly enjoy watching the writers at the trough Enjoying the the catering. Courtesy of augusta national. Was that part of your bit. You took me. You took me to lunch there. I don't know if you remember. When he's down and davis love came over to the table and No no yeah you guys all talked about that a lot but but no this gets us right into the subject of the book because no what i really noticed was the writers all acting and saying they were so upset about the dominant position in the story. That tiger had that everyone acted like a fronted at all. This talk tiger woods attention and the the crowd carrying about tiger. Who in their minds was finished yet. tigers mere presence made everybody's job feel Relevant and alive and everyone needed tiger and everyone needed tiny and they hated the fact that they needed him and i was fascinated by that. And i imagine that that power dynamic fascinates you as well having read your book incredibly closely. Well that's that's a that's a great insight and I think it goes now on. You're you're you're younger than i. But do you remember willie mays his last year with the mets at all before he really well no really well. My dad took a bunch of us here. You have a five hundred team. That's struggling it. Turns out you know. They made it to the world series that year but under yogi berra but willie mays you know batting two. Oh two was the dominant figure of that team. And he commissioned joe durso steve katie and red smith guys covered the teams like while. I can't believe. I'm still writing. Willie mays after all these years but then twenty years after the fact. That must be like wow. How cool was that. We covered willie mays his last year. And that's that's always been my attitude about tiger even though he's been very challenging subject. I'm just speaking for myself. I understand a little off topic from what you're asking but just speaking for myself. I have always had the attitude of a challenging subject. Yeah how am i to cover secretariat not just for two or three year period but basically for twenty twenty five years now actually well. Yeah and that's clear and we're gonna talk a lot about that. I wanna stay though. Because of a i wanna talk about a slight distinction in the willie. Mays tiger wood's stories. It seems to me that the reason perhaps those sports writers Felt that way about willie. Mays was this idea that they weren't into the nostalgia. They weren't into this Pretending that this guy who was having a hard time in centerfield was still willie mays with tiger. I felt more of an anger from the sports writers about tiger and a re a key. I felt a kind of a huge split between the audience at the patrons at augusta The fans at home watching on the internet and the sports writers themselves. It seemed to me that the sports writers had a particular anger at tiger. That i can't imagine existed. Around the lionised willie mays and i'm wondering wh You get at this a little bit in the book. But i'm wondering what your take on. That is why there is this level of Resentment about the position at the saints. I've heard knowledge is all the money he brought into the game. But why is there. A particular kind of anger directed at tiger and tiger world from the majority of those who cover the game well very interesting observations. Look and i'm happy to just but let's just edited just slightly premium not from your to not use the word majority because i really don't know where the fault line would fall but having said that you're definitely a deep truth what you're saying for. Some percentage and i wouldn't want to try to identify the percentages. They wouldn't know a who who feel that way. I think part of the bryan might be that you. You're old enough for this for sure. And i'm older yet. We fell in love with a game in which tiger woods was not a figure than we've been in the game when tiger woods was figure and then we'll be in the game. We hope in some capacity long after tiger is done is done competing so there's a little bit or maybe not a little bit. There is resentment of tiger that he carried himself as if he were the game When it's not true and part of the actual charm of arnold palmer in particular but you could really say this elite trevino and jack. Nicholson tom watson others. Is that in almost every gesture. In almost every publisher they had there was an underlying understanding that they were not bigger than the game and would tiger. That wasn't really the case Do they address some of what you're interested in here. Well i think it does actually reveal A bunch of stuff. Yeah but i would suggest.

"Because they could. I mean i think now what my daughter pays zarin agent m when she was allowed to shop there and it was the same price price. I was paying at you. Know the local department store bamberger. When i was growing up in pennsylvania and i was in the seventies the same price because the cost has dropped so much that they can still make such a gigantic margin that they can drop the prices. So then you're buying ten something instead of two something because you can afford it and you're buying more you spill something on it. You just go out and buy a new one because it's cheaper to buy the new one than it is to get that one dry-cleaned and you always have to dry clean their things because they're made of these junkie materials that if you put it in the washer to fall apart yeah absolutely. The pricing i think is one of the most unsettling parts of this conversation because we have have certainly had this sort of lack of transparency from the retailers themselves. But we do know for a fact from work like yours and of your peers. The people are not being paid living wage. The fashion industry employees tons and tons of people and so few of them are actually making money enough money to live and the way that we would know. They might be making what they are. Deserving of is if the price is increased in the stores and that is kind of this this disconnect that i think A lot of us probably have had trouble understanding. Is i love it. Because it's cheap and i can get something to wear a couple of times but that has so many ripple effects that are really really bad and the way we know that the problem is starting to be solved is increased prices in the stores. Yeah exactly and people say. But i can't afford close because we've been conditioned to think that these low prices are normal and how am how much should cost you know in the night in nineteen sixty. We devoted a far larger piece of our income pie too close and we bought one fifth. The number of items. We've we pay. We spent five times more money than we do today close. We've been conditioned to think that these low prices are acceptable or normal and that is also acceptable normal to buy tons of clothes and throw them away very easily the average. Today's weren't seven times before it's thrown away and studying china's says bear. It's only three times. Which i find remarkable given you know. Two generations our generation ago. Everyone was still not everyone but a lot of people are still wearing a mao suit. You know like they were anti fashion so three times before it's thrown away and they throw close way like less than ten percent of closer recycle this much as you'd like to think that they are they're not even if you put them in a bin or send them to a charity shop. They still wind up in landfill. Yeah yeah so. I want to get more into how we have kind of become complicit in this system and allowed it to perpetuate. We're going to do that and just as again. We're gonna take a short break to hear from our partner. I spent a lot of time talking to the business. World's most successful and insightful people. So i thought i'd that going during the ads. The founders of the motley fool..

"A fun one today Michael Bamberger author of the second life of Tiger Woods which came out yesterday joins to simply discuss Tiger Woods what better during this time in human history then I have a book coming out about the most interesting golfer maybe athlete in the last twenty twenty five thirty years it's a it's a great read it takes you through not just the two thousand nineteen masters of course that would be in professional golf his second wife but takes it through simply tiger is a human being and what's been different over the last two or three years versus how he was when he came out of the professional and all of the things that have changed all of the things that played into his life that have led to those changes another unbelievable read I urge you to pick it up order online just get it on your kindle or whatever device you read on I loved it couldn't put it down knocked it out a couple days I think you will enjoy it as well if you're a fan of golf which you probably are if you listen to podcasts and if you're a fan of Tiger Woods which maybe you are if you listen to this podcast you're gonna enjoy the books so pick it up Bamberger was great always love chatting with them first time on the podcast and I am yeah we went a lot longer than maybe I thought we would because we had a lot to talk about hopefully you guys are staying sane in keeping yourself safe and being smart during this on real time in our history I know its it's been there been days that I've been testing there been days that have seem to kind of roll by and all the while we are at least in my household trying to follow all the god the guidelines have been put out in I hope you're doing the same thing because we can get through this as a group as a society as a country as a world I know we can do it I'm trying to stay positive hopeful you are as well one last thing before we get to Michael if you haven't checked out get a grip that's my new I guess new his new still fair to say my court I just did quote new I did air quotes my new golf podcast with PGA tour winner Max homa Max and I have had now ten episodes of get a grip we try to do one once a week of course the early ones were a little bit more current golf specific the last few have been a little bit more all over the place but we're trying to have some fun with it we have so did you read your questions and we've started to do some lists like favorite nicknames in sports history and and all of that so we're trying to have a little bit of fun and pass the time and give people something to listen to of course as quarantine continues on that's enough for me let's get to Michael and we welcome to the club house for the first time Michael Bamberger author of now out the second life of Tiger Woods of course Michael the senior writer golf magazine and golf dot com and Michael I want to start with this they talk a lot about the smaller the ball the better the story I've always felt the more famous the person the top for the profile because we know so much about him why would you want to take on a Tiger Woods profile a Tiger Woods book that is a great question Gary d'amato writing up the book for one of those guns in the Gulf or his own will Wisconsin golf publications that there have been millions of words written about this guy do we really need eighty five thousand more and it was it was funny that he said that because I've re I've written a million words about this guy and I wondered myself will be needing eighty five thousand more and I guess the answer is there's a lot of ways dancer but one insys answer would be that was a very definitive biography you probably read a chain they came out two years ago just called tiger by Jeff Benedict and Armen contains a really fine book and then as a matter of fact I would say it's a starting point if you haven't read any books about tiger would say that both him and they and the handbook to me would be the first two books that I would read but it's big but a lot has happened since that book came out and so this book really covers a two year period in Tiger Woods is life that is extraordinary on aquatic level and on a human level that leads to one of my next questions you met you mention Haney the big mess of course the the the tiger book that you reference first it is a deep deep dive into everything you'd ever want to know and probably some stuff maybe you don't about tiger when you decided to take on this project and I know you're a reader I know you obviously pay attention to that world how many tiger books did you make sure that you have read and finished before starting your project zero because you know I read the Benedict book and I read the handbook and I and I've read similar books so you know I'm I'm well aware of what of what they have but once I started writing my own book and even started thinking about writing my own book I didn't hate it cation I would definitely go back to the Benedict contained book because they had so much information and just be in the index in terms of sitting down and absorbing somebody else's take on tiger I didn't go there at all because I didn't I didn't want to buy it so Tiger Woods this is a guy that has been in your life for the better part of twenty years if not longer maybe twenty five years if you will if maybe even under or the early junior rams you know when he was doing stuff we hadn't seen before the title of your book is the second wife of Tiger Woods I feel like that could be taken in so many different ways I I've I've watched tiger's life changed dramatically day to day night tonight headline to headline this is a guy that everything that has happened personally professionally we have absorbed over the last twenty years of his professional career you're calling this the second life I feel like the main focus of that title is simply about him professionally but as I do as I dove deeper and deeper into your book I felt that the second wife of tiger it leads the way you presented it was his personality I mean this is a guy that came into our lives a stone faced killer on the golf course and now he's a guy that will answer questions that does certain things I love to the very end of your book you said you mentioned in a note Greg Norman and handed tiger in tiger never said anything about it about the win and one of the last few pages of the book you said you know tiger saw Greg and thank them for the note they were though there were those little tidbits that made you feel like the second wife of tiger wasn't anything about his golf it was all about how he's presented now and how he approaches life well that's a very good insight I would I would agree with all of that you know you know from having read the book my take on the idea of the second wife of Tiger Woods actually having a starting gate in my mind in my writing in other words no I don't know this will sound self absorbed but this is what authors often do my take is that his second wife began the day he was arrested on that horrible Memorial Day night in in two thousand and seventeen and he had to he was really at a crossroads I have a personal take on the sex scandal which you know in one sense was you know but the tragedy before you land and and and his and his family life but none of our business a lot of people think the when he came back from that I went to rehab after that came back from that but that was maybe you know a new chapter in the in the in the life and times of Tiger Woods I don't really think it was I think the I think the real moment of reckoning came on that Memorial Day two thousand seventeen any I think you had to dig deep and find out who he really was solving chain that you just talked about expressing your gratitude in in interviews being more patient fans being more engaged with the officials and tournament sponsors and in other players I think that all is a function of him taking deeper into who he really is and and shedding some of that you know stone cold killer that you just described and and finding a humanity that some of us really would never have not might not have ever known really existed the one thing that I continually noticed that Sunday at Augusta was held that none of those things happened it was it was almost like he had a full cell phone battery of ability that day this is what I have in me I can't waste any of it because I've got to get myself going to the end of the day with battery power and it all came out when he finally won on the eighteenth green it is so interesting to see this quote unquote new tiger and how he approaches these huge moments versus what we've seen for the better part of his career are you sure now right now you're making.

"And you've practiced a lot with that club for this spot in fact at your go club. Let's say and you skull it you. You understand it hurts. It could hurt and bother me for three days and because it's a lack of mastery over the self. It is a lack of mastery over your emotions. It is a lack of mastery over. It means something is not aligned. It you were not able to perform up to your capability when pressure was on the line. And what it makes you do. It makes you ask Yourself Golf. Makes you ask yourself very difficult questions? If you're willing to ask yourself those questions and I think your book does a great job of talking about the questions. That Tiger Woods was asking himself as he was trying to see if he could do this again. And it does a good job of asking us all some difficult questions about our own Engagement with that journey and yourself personally. I think with Your own questions about that journey. Because for instance you I would have liked. I would have liked one more. I want to ask you this so you talk about how the cops are known to let people go sometimes in that community. And you don't really ask the question of whether or not they would let Greg Norman go in that same spot and I wonder what you think if Greg Norman off to the side I know you think those officers were heroic and I in a good way. You point out if they acted in a bunch of different ways to think could've turned tragic in different ways could have absent because we've seen it. We know that we know that it does. Yeah what do you think Greg? Norman is over to the side of the road like that. And those officers approach him. Do you think Greg Norman gets arrested that night? Well Greg Greg Norman. In one thousand nine hundred eighty seven. There's no way they're driving home sleep. Sleep it off buddy. Make sure you don't do it again. A Greg Greg Norman. Two thousand seventy. I think this in this particular community I think people are GonNa think it's much more but by the book. I think that's their training. You know I think People are our children's age with kids the same age They just grew up with a different game. My other goal in the game is to somehow find a way to Be invited to join the membership it at National Golf at the National Golf Club which I know is impossible goal. That's my that's my other by other goal is But I'm pretty sure it's not gonNA happen in. You're right you're writing like what would you? What would you like golf to place a big? Listen Michael I I love golf. I want to be able to get good at it again. I love walking. A golf course It it always features in our writing Golf makes their references and allusions to golf throughout you know as you know in in billions we reference it and we reference various different Golf Clubs Reference Golf modes. Because I like you. I do believe it is a real test of character. Michael What do you think? And this was where we'll wrap up and do you think that Two things together. Do you think a career like yours is possible for someone starting out today in the world of writing about Athletic Endeavors Ken. Someone STARTING OUT TODAY. Build a life with The same kind of toolkit you started out with in that world and do you think that the place. The Tiger Woods fills in in sport Can come about again. In the in the way the landscape currently exists. I do think to the to the first question I do think the answer is yes. Now when when you were coming up as a writer and writing rounders the idea this episodic series of very complex storytelling like billions. Didn't really exist. I don't think it it developed you developed with it and you found a way to do the things you love to do well in in in a new format so it might be different than it is now but I think broadly speaking yes definitely I think people love to read. People love to be transported just as people love to get high and get drunk to be transported. They look to re to get transported and be inspired and so yes think it might take. It might take a different form but I think it written the written word will definitely survive and thrive no matter what the delivery system is and Tiger Woods The same Because you know there was the boys in the boat you know. We probably didn't know anything about that until that book is written there was sea biscuit. There was Tiger Woods After Tiger Woods there's some twelve year old soccer player in Chile. Now that we know nothing about is going to be tiger the tiger woods of soccer or football and so yes. I don't I think there will be other other examples of it in other sports golf and the only thing I would have about that. Is that for my for my to combine shootings by here at the end. Is that a my own writing. I'll always be every bit as interested in earning houses and the people who are that close and can't really get there now. I gotTa know it's well just to be that close and not really get there as you know we're looking for moments or character reveals itself and and the character gets rebuild itself more efficiently and and more deeply in that by not winning then went perfectly. Said Hey Michael. I'm about to sign off before I do. Do not close your browser until it says. It's uploaded your audio to me. That's how I get the higher quality audio so we're going to hang for a second after I stopped okay. Hey Michael Bamberger I WanNa thank so much for writing this book.

I think you were hanging out with Chris. Stone and and others of nightside is probably about two or three years ago now and I have a vague memory but told me that they have a right that you particularly enjoy watching the writers at the trough Enjoying the the the catering courtesy of Augusta national was an part of your bit. You took me. You took me to lunch there. I don't know if you remember. When he's down and Davis love came over to the table and No no yeah you guys all talked about that a lot but but no this gets us right into the subject of the book because no what I really noticed.

Well that's That's a that's a great insight and I think it goes now Brown. You're you're you're younger than I. But Ju- Remember Willie mays his last year with the mets at all before he really well no really well. My Dad took a bunch of us. Here have a five hundred team. That's struggling it. Turns out you know. They made it to the world series that year but under Yogi Berra but Willie mays you know batting two. Oh two was the dominant figure of that team. And he commissioned Joe Durso Steve Katie and Red Smith guys covered the teams like wow. I can't believe I'm still writing Willie. Mays after all these years but then twenty years after the fact that must be like wow. How cool was that? We covered Willie mays in his last year. And that's that's always been my attitude about tiger even though he's been very challenging subject. I'm just speaking for myself. I understand a little off topic from what you're asking but just speaking for myself. I have always had the attitude of the exit challenging subject. Yeah How am I to cover secretariat not just for two or three year period but basically for twenty twenty five years now actually well? Yeah and that's clear and we're GONNA talk a lot about that. I WanNa stay though because of a I wanNA talk about a slight distinction in the Willie. Mays tiger wood's stories. It seems to me that the reason perhaps those sports writers Felt that way about Willie. Mays was this idea that they weren't into the nostalgia. They weren't into this Pretending that this guy who was having a hard time in Centerfield was still Willie mays with tiger. I felt more of an anger from the sports writers about Tiger and a re a key.

But why is there a particular kind of anger directed at Tiger and tiger world from the majority of those who cover the game? Well very interesting observations. Look and I'm happy to just but let's just eh just slightly premium not from your to not use the word majority because I really don't know where the fault line would fall but having said that there's definitely a deep truth what you're saying for some percentage and I wouldn't want to try to identify the percentages. They wouldn't know a who who feel that way. I think part of the Bryan might be that you. You're old enough for this for sure. And I'm older yet. We fell in love with a game in which tiger woods was not a figure than we've been in the game when tyrod was figure and then we'll be in the game. We hope in some capacity long after tiger is done is done competing so there's a little bit or maybe not a little bit. There is resentment of tiger that he carried himself as if he were the game When it's not true and part of the actual charm of Arnold Palmer in particular but you could really say this elite Trevino and Jack. Nicholson Tom Watson others. Is that in almost every gesture? In almost every publisher they had there was an underlying understanding that they were not bigger than the game and would tiger. That wasn't really the case Do they address some of what you're interested in here? Well I think it does actually reveal A bunch of stuff. Yeah but I would suggest that it ignores that the game actively tried to keep people like tiger woods out so I understand completely. Why Tigers Why Tiger in the same way that people were annoyed they thought Serena and Venus weren't gracious when they were young. I completely see power race and class at pleasure and I feel eve. I feel That all I thought about when I was at Augusta was raised power and class in a way that surprised the hell out of me because Augusta's one of my favorite objectively Augusta is one of the most magical places in the world to me. I'm in love with it in many ways and then walking the grounds I am being by that big tree that you described that whole scene so incredibly. Well Michael. You're I I really WanNa talk about the way you right. It's really I think you are. It's beyond state of the art and I think there's a reason your books will last a very long time but I do think that this power dynamic there's This old guard idea about the game. Look you you make as I said to you An email you Make quite a few allusions in the book that are designed to appeal to people with various levels of engagement in the game popular culture literature. It's a real testament to what you do. That you've written a book can be That rewards multiple layers of of reading. But you kind of casually reference the way that Palmer would enjoy himself off the field without saying anything again. You know but you. If if people know the stories they know the stories yet all that behavior was sort of excused and in fact he was protected by the sports writers You would not think that he and Jack acted any differently. In those ways yet. Tiger is wholly considered differently. Do you think that's fair will? It's not fair and I agree with everything you're saying and And I'm sometimes to may be subtle in 'em I own writing expressing some of these things that you've just really hit the nail on the head. Let's just go back to raise our class for second raise. Power Class is the underpinning the foundation of how August national got got built and created the myth of Augusta National. What has happened over the years? In my opinion race power class has been subsumed by elitism and a sense of noblesse oblige. By which the club says. We open our doors for week. And you know if you if you have a super duper press fast like I can go. Wherever you want the clubhouse that's one level and even if you can only quote just walk the grounds well you're the insider inside of insiders and for that week even let me say I hope this is liberal minded people like like you like like I would say almost put that in like in a closet so we can just enjoy the majesty that you just described and tiger flies in the face of that not so much because of type not so much because of the example of tigers own life but really because of earl in Titas life and the fact that they raised this child to be accepted and to become the most powerful person in sport that's been dominated by rituals for for most of the twentieth century in the United States. And and we. Sorta LOSE TRACK OF THE OVERALL STORY. So there is so much going on in that one week and then the doors closed and then they sort of go back to leading the lives of delayed right just going to. I want to let you get right back. Just want tell this briefing quickly so as you know. Tiger went his first masters at age. Twenty one by twelve shots in his first major as a professional in nineteen ninety-seven and and I was writing for sports illustrated and that night I wrote a piece about how with this victory. Tiger Woods have become the most powerful person in the game in the game of golf as it happened a couple of months later. I was a guest overnight guests in the home in Augusta national member. This is home south Florida. He pulled that clipping out. He had like you know those old fashioned e B white heavy wool in the middle of the Florida summer. He's wearing one of those shirts they're heavy pockets of the whole thing like a CPO and he takes it out of one of the two L. O. B. Pockets and he reads the back to make and he says and says you know I wrote like the Greek coded members would have to cede power to kit and he said you dare to come into this house after writing that and I'm like Oh my God look I'm yourself into but it was just really really telling that and it's like everything in lights and you you write this weekly When you're when you're reading billing the people who have the power do not want to give it up but to keep the power they have to give little dollops out here and there and let people rise to some degree or else there's a revolution and revolutions bad so I don't know how I'm going crazy tangent here but you've what you said you're gonNA lot for me.

"Hello this is Alan ship. Duck back for a special shoul edition of the drop zone. You got rid of the millennials Sean and Dylan her out the Oh jeez taken over the microphone. That of course is the one only Michael Bamberger and myself doing our dog and pony show for somebody else new platform but it'll be the same content. Michael thanks for being here you know. Are Those guys out temporarily. It's just one week. Only we can never get rid of the little. Too Valuable to the franchise -actly they're the future. That's a scary Are we the path the no hanging in there hanging in there so we have been given time at Michael of talking about the President's Cup. We are excited in the President's Cup and you've interest really more recently than I know. Sweat look every frame. I've never been to Australia my life. So Oh man twenty four man in your position you don't like to fly but It it's a long journey but it so it's such a special place I've been now four times and Have you been this Royal Melbourne course. Oh yes I where would you put it on. This Saint Andrews Augusta National Continuum better than Augusta National As equally interesting and charming as the old course I definitely tougher than the old course doesn't have the same majestic sense of place. Basically in the suburbs of the city as opposed to the heart of the old grey tune. But it's It's it's without a doubt one of the greatest golf courses in the world and the really special place I mean it's probably the ultimate Mackenzie design you know Augusta National's have been kind of bastardized by the rough in the trees and the Fertilizer I think Royal Melbourne probably plays like Augusta national data the Nineteen Seventies. You know. It's a little rough around the edges little burnt out in spots. What's pleasantly so you know? It's not overly manicured. It's looks like a golf course and it's a race track. I mean the ball rolls rolls forever on the ground. Evergreen is a riddle. There's there's a lot of movements out yet to feed the ball off slopes to get it closed you have to bounce it in just a wonderful test and really a spectacular golf course. There's two courses at Royal Melbourne the West Course. which is I think right now? Number seven in Golf Magazines World Top one hundred. That's two spots higher than Augusta National in the east course also made the top one hundred in the world somewhere in the nineties navy ninety six and in the President's Cup the play composites researching courses off the west and they take five off the East but it tells you how good that the Gulf is there that you really have. I've no idea when you're when you're watching on. TV's it's kind of the the whole blend seamlessly together. So it's GonNa be a fantastic venue and I think it actually gives nationals a chance just because it's not a pointed shoot golf it's not PGA. Tour Golf I mean. It's really takes John Matry imagination discipline and you can't not just fire the flag and so I think that that gives us hope that it could be a competitive presents cut because it's because the venue so unique not to get too deep in the woods woods here or lack of woods. But you've got three guys on that international team who are very good British open players Markley Sherman Adam Scott and It would be the third okay loose out. King lowering himself and I'm looking at this squad. I'm seeing tiger. Woods is a good show player. And I'm not seeing anyone else who's really league shown that they really did links golf. Yeah I'm ricky. Fowler years ago had a nice run in the open. But he's kind of Kinda falling off I think I think he could be a sleeper for the US because he is a little more imaginative in the Yes true. I mean if if they were playing this at a Florida golf course I'm the. US will be a prohibitive. Favorite but I I think Royal Melbourne is equalizing factor. And in some ways. It's going to be able to start the show. Oh along with Was Of course but even the even the Gulf fans wanted that emotionally invested in the President's Cup I think they're gonNA love watching this This golf of course and they're gonNA especially in match play where does lend itself to being a little more aggressive in his shots. You probably never tried to strokeplay turn. There's GonNa be some recent double bogeys from the fairway for guys just figure I didn't make Birdie and they fired a flag and roll over the back of the green and they chip it off the greed diagnosed in the most delicious. Double bogeys. There is but when you see tour players chip off the created during the walk shaking the next shots plenty any of that. I mean I was there in November degrees or already quite quick. And everyone's like Addison. They slowed down. Just wait till you're going to let them go for the President's Cup it'll be three faster than this. It's like man that's scary so wait. I can't wait and it'll be a lot of emphasis on tiger of course but I think think Ernie's shouldn't be overlooked here because I think Earning has been a big loser in life and in Presidents Cups. I'm being facetious. The earnings he's been under the Ernie's under the the the large size eighteen feet of tiger woods basically his whole career since since tiger turn pro route and I think he's looking for a moment here can where he can best tiger woods That simply I don't think there's any great love between the two. I don't think well I I don't think Ernie loves tiger. I think this is an opportunity for him and I remember something Nick Price. Tovia years ago I think actually actually had an effect on her earnings from how I for the story a today's but there were playing they're playing in Presidents Cup. Earning going through the motions you've probably heard until this before a Alan L. and stops when he says any. This point may not mean much to you but it means a lot to me and US Asna wake up. Call Ernie's I've heard story has been woken up ever since. No Ernie was I. I spoke to early briefly at the prison. Scott the Liberty National L. A.. Two thousand seventeen and he was pissed end or knee you think. That's the right word demoralized. I think is the right word and He's proud what athletes so I'm interesting. How Ernie decide will it's true? You know the big easy moniker never quite captured. The Real Ernie els because as those of plus you saw him call you out like an after school bully at whistling Straits years ago. No yet two thousand four. Exactly I mean yeah you thought he he is affable and he's fun loving guy but there is a fire that Burns there and look at all. The agents. caddies burned through He's been Mike face a couple of times about About stuff that was tight I mean he's he's he's a prickly bastard in some ways. But that's what you need to be a champion sportsmen and I think I think his team will see both sides of that it is GonNa make a fun team. Rooms can be jovial. And it's it's GonNa be a nice vibe but but I think at the same time Ernie as you say is tired of losing to Tiger Woods promptly when you think about earning career four major championships. What is the most memorable golf? He's ever played in his life. He's probably in the dark in South Africa against Tigar's presence cover two thousand three. That was so much steel so much will which deserted Ernie at tides in stroke play events and so the president's got does mean something to and Australia's not South Africa but there Stopping played in America. It's Southern Hemisphere. There's This Adam Scott's comments events about don't cheer for Tiger of the. US feels like they're trying to bring more emotions this event because they need it. Yep What do you think this moment. In this week it means to tiger. I think it means a lot. You know he He's a student of sports history. Like he knows how many NBA champions Bill. Bill Russell was a player coach right like this is just another way to set himself apart. And you know anybody can can win a Presidents Cup as a player. He's done it but to win it as as a as a player coach is a really cool special distinction and it speaks to the Tigers. Only take place in a game but also his rejuvinated golf and I think it really does mean a lot to marine He's he's spent a lot of time. I'm thinking about this. Talking about it with the players is vice. Captains the wheels turn in for a long time. He's Analytical Guy and I think it means more to him as a capitalist play if Tiger's playing poorly I think he will in fact Benjamin's health so you can get the team victory because that means more than anything you can do as a player But it's GonNa be I wouldn't I wouldn't agree that alum is. I don't think tiger can admit to himself. He's not playing. Well I actually don't think he has that move in him that we might see it but I don't think I don't think he'll be able to see it. He could bench himself for other reasons Well if it won't be called but if it were called for windy of his back were acting up then he would but I think I think tiger staggered because he always thinks he's going to play well but I agree. I think this is a very big moment for him for all the reasons you outline so well. And even more broadly than that he has got to set up the rest of his life here He must know on some level. He was very lucky to win that masters tournament. Everything fell his way Is Nick Faldo has told people that's really the only major he can contend because he can't play out a rough anymore he's not going to be kept gun. Dustin Johnson and in Patrick can't lay in Zander's plan out of the rough so So what does that leave for you. You know as he's in his mid forties in through sixties knowing team competition he needs to be like Michael Jordan other guys. I think he's GonNa find that Presidents Cups and Ryder Cups and then late adapting them and later being an adviser to them. It's going to be very significant part of his life so this is really the first of the rest of his first week of the rest of his life. I would think it's a big deal. Yeah that's well said and you know. The the tiger field continuing was interesting because in post scandal. We'll during All the injuries retire kind of dropped out of golf. You OUTTA sight Outta Mind in the game just moved on and and minted these young. These young stars and Phil became really the elder statesmen on tour..

"I mean as I look at the schedule a half to a little excited from from March to July. You know, there's so much good golf. And I think it's cool that it's going to end it at Portrush. There's going to be such a crescendo, you know, it was always a little bit of a letdown to go from an epic open. Shame ship to some second rate PGA venue in. We're we're getting you know, swamp ass in the in the summertime, I think it's kinda neat. And it also means it can have more of my summer vacation in my kids. Like, I'm really a fan. Of the new schedule. I think it'd be good to by the way in that the phrase champion golfer, the year's going to be more when it is the last major them more of a lead of time to the Ryder Cup or the presence Cup, which I think now, of course, tiger being the captain's part of it. But I think for whatever reason I think the President's Cup certainly can't be worse. So viewed that way I'm not really saying anything, but I think is maybe on on upper swing. I think they'll be an important year for especially if the Americans lose in Australia did the last believe bust there. Yeah. I mean, I maybe tiger as plane captain is he should be the permanent plane, Catherine for the presence even ten years. So now because it's only thing that that makes different an interesting how he manages that who repairs himself with dust can be fascinating notice of ever cared by the presence cope, but I'm super excited about this one. Because it gives me a reason to do one of the greatest boondoggles. Her career full of them already planning a trip to go to New Zealand, the sandbelt Tasmania and kings island for this Gulf or g it's like eight courses in the world top one hundred on one trip, and I'm it's in kings island. There's this it's capable Wickham and ocean dunes a couple of in its Gulf porn, you gotta look at these pictures, and it's pretty close to Tasmania really where you have loss farms and you have barn. Boo ghoul. And of course, we all know the. Sand Bill and then in in New Zealand tar ED this new dote course, it's the top thirty and golf magazine's world one hundred and you have kidnappers, and you have Cari cliffs, and there's a couple others that are on on the radar. So Ansett is genetic coming with. Yeah. He's part of its usual wolf pack. These we've taken a bunch of these trips, and oh, but there's helicopters involved. It's like, it's totally outrageous. But as I've always said, the readers have a right to know, I do it all for the readers. And so it is Howard coming with in a manner of speaking. He's in my in my pocket. But it's the great thing is because the presence Cup and all these the people in in Australia, so excited to show off course to the world that is probably going to be that expensive trip. They're kind of helping out a few intrepid Americans. So I make one suggestion to invite Howard. Like thirty six day day after day. You can handle it. Okay. That's a good. That's a good tip. What else is there? Anything can you touch upon. I don't think so. Why shouldn't when what do you think about that washing road waffle house where we did our post masters, would you go back? There would you would you go to another? We're going to a waffle house. It's going to be that waffle house. We can't say now because we don't wanna huge crowd together. It could be awkward, you know, we're going to keep that one close to the vest. Yeah. I mean bones, and I breakfasted at a very fine.

"So he's it changes. Because at one point he was experimenting with having all of his his woods before you two inches. His driver three wooden hybrids at all be the same that that got abandoned. But so I've gone single length as you know, and I have hybrids are now on the basically seven iron shaft, and they looked like toys, they go like hell, I love him and the real easy to hit. And, you know, Bryson his fool around with that stuff at present on pretty sure that his hybrid sweetness driver all kind of standard length, but it's always subject to change with him. And that's kind of the fun part. I mean he'd ever know what he's going to do next. How does he hit it so focus in Tigers a little bit the same? Actually, it looks like compared to swings of your new even Rory swing today. There's no release. It doesn't look like the club ever turns over. I don't really. You know, what he does? But it looks awkward. It doesn't look that letting the ball goes out there. How how does he do? He's incredibly strong for when he's like country strong. I mean when I was hanging out with him back in two thousand fifteen right for turn pro he hit balls for eight hour straight. And then he went onto this. It was he builds his billions on contracts back, then it was basically a machine that mimicked his his swing plane, but plus resistance in so, and he just did that until the sweat was pouring off of him. And then he went and he'd he'd strung up between two trees. I forget what they call it. But it's basically like a tightwad rope. And then he was doing that and doing all these weird exercises and doing that with barbells just in the back and hit another hundred drivers and turned swing as hard as he could. And I mean, he just he pushes his body, really hard. And I saw him. Let's see was a. The PJ championship. And we're just chatting as put my hand on his shoulder as God damn this guy is just brick. So I mean, that's part of it. It's just he doesn't it doesn't necessarily doesn't where the skintight clothes like these guys. He doesn't show as much. He's really solid. I mean, he's listed at to five and the tour media guy, and that's probably outdated. I mean, he's just he's a big strong dude started and he hits it in the dead sweet spot. And as as you know, that's the most important thing in his strike sounds like almost no other. It's so pure, and so I don't know insist deficient. He he is found for his body and his swing is found the most efficient way to do. And to get the most out of every swing? It's a sounding. It's it's a sounding. How different it is his mind is different clubs different his methods different. And and he says you said it's fifth in the world, and and winning and contending when he doesn't want. So quick question for you about changes at Augusta National. Yeah. Their number five has been lengthened. Maybe it's thirty or forty yards long. I don't know thirteen of actually get lengthened or their their holes have been those. I mean in this this current tweaking, those are the two big ones, which you're feeling overall about the continuing lengthening of this shrine of Gulf hits just necessary because the fifth hole used to be the biggest baddest toughest par for Degussa national actually Jenkins wrote a whole sl article about that whole, you know, in the seventies, partly because where it is on the property allow people skip it, and they just go from four to six because there. Fun holes to watch have you ever been on that that fairway bunker on the left on the? Actually, I have there's only one place to go from there. And that's the next fair. We say backwards. Yeah. It's it's deep dark place. But. And is becoming driver weds. I mean, it was just playing so sure..

"Seventy no matter what. Because the second steps out of bed. He just feels a certain way. That's gotta be discouraging for him for a guy always been about maximizing his his potential minimizing his score. So it's. To it's going to be a fascinating year. I mean, he pushed so hard to get to the mountaintop in Atlanta. Right. And is that is that become the new the new normal photographer? He can play that level or that take everything had to get back. We're gonna find out. It's funny to hear you used the phrase when he was a part of the air Shawna, the tour, I would see that phrase and raise it to this. He was the tour the took. He was the tour and the tour really is having a hard time letting go, and I think I think we're seeing in this discovery deal. How much he still is a driving force in the game. Even though it's very possible never win tournament again, period, certainly possible. But this, but he's already shifting the landscape of TV viewer viewing in the favor of discovery. And I don't even know if they have a deal, I think they just saw an opportunity let's tiger bunch of money or some money or whatever it might be in sign him up now while we can. But what was have you reported that deal with your, you know, anything about it with your sense of? Yeah, I've been reading about. Yeah. I think they're still figuring out how they're going to use them if that's the quest in writing. But I mean literally tire. And more excitement just pulling into the parking lot and walk into the clubhouse on Sunday. The major championships than any other player did on the golf course. You know, just the cult around tiger the way social media exploded. When he does anything if it's a show up like a muscle shirt. It's just it's good and bad because it can't last forever. And it's in some ways, it minimises, whatever else is doing poor Brooks kept gut. Like, he another reason for envy bitter at the world yet is his career year during tiger's comeback season. And it's just part of why you got overlooked because it's nothing. He does is exciting as tiger just tieing shoes. So it's a it's a funny thing presumably, maybe this two thousand eighteen represents peak tiger hysteria. He came back. He won. He contended. I don't think we can stay at this level. But then if he wins the masters who knows where we're back on the nNcholas watt. So I'm already exhausted. Posted and the year just started, right? There is a majesty about about whether you like him as a person not there is a majesty about them. There's a majesty about the way he warms up. There's a majesty about the way he fingers clubs when he's citing which one. Cameron champ to watch. Have you seen him playing person yet? No, I can't wait. Well, I have well up just saying my sense is. It's spectacular. There's no charisma there at all the swing looks like it's sort ordinary swing on on super speed. We're tiger swing. Doesn't johnson? Roy macaroni swing? You know, there's something special. And they're Cameron champ. Swing by the swing of the future where all the positions look normal. But the speed is a astonishing. But yeah, there are lots of reasons why we can't of go teicher. I can't quit you Brokeback mountain. Yeah. I so Tigers tiger. We have to have to tip our cap. What do we think about the new skill? Okay. Could you just go back to tiger? Can't quit. Can't quit have only because. I've just I know your opinion, what is your sense of their relationship? Well, it's the best it's ever been at least until you know, Phil started cracking jokes. You know Sunday night at the match, but it never made sense to them not to be closer, both California guys..

"How this one played out? They're committed to this in the long term. It was an utter disaster, then from a from a competitive standpoint, and or an aesthetic standpoint, maybe they would have rethought it, but I thought back nine actually there is about an hour and a half where it was really fun to watch. They both are playing well on the back nine it got tents. You didn't know who was gonna win it. Was just enough of an artistic triumph that I think they're all square three teen. That's typically the definition of an exciting match. Exactly not par-three thirteen where where they both stuff their tee-shots. And it got really good for just enough time to keep us coming back. But this is a good segue into twenty nineteen because. We all remember tiger winning the tour championship transcendent. And of course, the next week. He goes over and completely lays in the Ryder Cup. Then he let's fill beat them in which was obviously sort of tacky made-for-tv event. But still the world is watching you think tiger wants to lose to Phil Mickelson with people paying attention. I mean, it put it took a little of the shine off of Tigers renaissance. How he he just limp through the end of this season. Does that give you any pause heading into twenty nineteen are just more bullish based on his victories and his fine play. No, no. I. I I don't know who I'm ceilings from possibly this is probably not I think tiger is rolling to see good golf from tiger in warm borderline hot conditions. So I don't think they're that may eighteen weeks. He plays. I don't think there are that many weeks when he's his back is really going to be loose enough that he can really take rip at it. I was shocked to see how long he actually is that sort of hold cut Dr move that he has. But he really actually can't get it out there long enough to compete, but you know, Gus nationally get an early teatime one of the two days. It doesn't really get that warm. You know, Bethpage Mays not gonna be that warm. You know, Ireland Northern Ireland never gets warm. What does that leave Pebble Beach? It's there's fog. Yeah. So I just don't I just think this guy needs. He. Wh-? What's your sense? Yeah. I think I think people need to accept that. There's going to be a lot of off weeks for tiger. Whether it's whether it's what you're referencing. Or maybe he just can't grind hard enough in practice to be razor-sharp the old tiger. You know has always said I I'm here to win every every time I teed up. Those days are gone. I think there's going to be more duds. And that's okay. I mean, we all just one the peak four weeks this coming year and the year after year after so adding that was part of his thinking for not playing this week tournament champions. He would have to grind through Christmas and new years to be ready. You don't wanna do that? He's run down the end of the year. He just. I think that was kind of a I think part tiger would have liked to have come and brought his kids and and shown them like this. This is part of the life. I haven't been been living as tournament winner. And as a member of the upper echelon of the tour. I I think actually would have been fun for tiger to do that. Now, there's kids are older. But it was it was a capitulation. It was it was it was kind of an acceptance that he has his limits, and it's good that he found them last year. It's too bad. You know, what happened in Paris was part of that. But he he realized that he just can't play that much golf and that he can't be sharp all the time. And so, yeah, I mean, the temperature is interesting. I question like, you know, are there as when when tire wakes up, and he just knows he's not going to break..

"But we'll see on the other hand to fill in tiger were no one's radar a year ago. Now both have been playing excellent golf. So. Webb Simpson steel in that eighth spot doesn't help our cause. I think that possibly some other players you'd like to see on the team, but it is what it is. So. It really, you can. You can go both teams and go down the line and say x, y, and z. The bottom line is I need you to it. But we will do it Sunday night from quick not to Saint Louis, which is the power of the mid west. I think they say that we both enjoy seeing Lewis is a great, great town. Everyone knows it's great sporting town, but it's a great cultural mix and wonderful restaurants, wonderful interesting people and a lot of cool buildings downtown. I mean, there's looked like SoHo and some places. I mean, it's really it's really we're saying goodbye to the PGA in August. And I think we've probably both have mixed feelings about that and probably probably will be good for the tournament championship. I hope it will be for their sake. There's been something need about something needed about August on the road in unlikely places that we might not of those go to Saint Louis. Rochester, Louisville, Charleston. Yeah, it's been. It's been a fun run. It's been. It's been sweaty though. It's been so sweaty and the greens and soft and the courses, it has honest to God when it's all said, and. Done. It has felt like the stepchild of the majors. Not because of the fields, but because of the courses while when you come to place this hot, you have to put a lot of on the green so they don't die and just changes the way the game is played. I mean, it's not major champion golf when guys are stop and four irons dead next to the flag. So I I think in the final analysts may is going to be better for myself as purposes. I get a week back in the summer with my kids. That's helpful. I'm excited about the move. Great. All right. We are signing off from mama's on the hill, Michael Bamberger things we're doing this.

"Clearly he, he can find his a minus or be plus game off enough to win on regulatory setup. Kept Casler now to do that, but KEPCO knows how to bring it when it matters. The most industrialised clearly cannot. So talented is a funny word. I mean, if I had to pick one of those guys to shoot a sixty three to save my life, I think I would take Dustin, I think probably most people would, but if you needed someone to shoot a sixty six on Sunday to major championship, it's Brooks time. Leeann is not even. It's not even a conversation. Same goes with speak. I mean, kept because now caught speed for for major championship victories. It's now we thought speed was going to be the sort of the keynote player of this, this new era, and he's he's shown so much vulnerability kept has none. I mean, he is a ruthless closer. He is the closest we've seen. Tiger or Jack from these young players who gets in position and then slams the door with authority. It's impressive. I'm not diminishing and you just you just I just see. Dustin not watched a lot more. Doesn't Johnson over the years. I've been captivated by Dustin Johnson as the golfer, you know, really from from winning got on tour, but it seems to me, he plays more sawed off shots and fade shots and high shuts only just think he's more complete more flair for sure he played. I absolutely agree with that, but who cares? It's about its numbers, not pictures, Michael, and. I mean, I'm not diminishing Brooks Cup at all. I truly am not. But. Two of the three or one on really peculiar major championship setups area hills in here, much more like tour events. You know, this is one of my pet peeves is Evans says, oh, if the courses were firm and fast, they would have been totally different. Well, when you play in warm weather and you play in outdoor sport, there's often thunderstorms courses are often soft. I mean, probably half the majors. We play our our soft issues or very soft, including us national many years spring and so and even moving to may may not change that. So for the PJ. So you can as Cavaco has pointed out with a little bit of red asked, you can only play the course that's presented and he, he does a brilliant job of. That's completely defensible. And Adam, Scott picked up on this in his in his Saturday night comments. Everyone always says the someone who's playing well that they play with tremendous confidence, but he really truly does play, which Mendes confidence. I mean, he looks like he, this Brooks cupcake looks like he never gets rattled at all. I mean, the tournament was basically over on the two hundred dollars to the arrival of the desert Christmas bribed them to their listenership. Yes, we have spoon and we have tyrannies. Here we have the credit card. There's a lot happening here. We're gonna power through this. The tournament. Tournament was over on. On Saturday on the first hole when Gary woodland laid up with an iron into the rough and Kevin Kisner it a three wood into the fairway and big bad Brooks KEPCO smashed a driver. One hundred yards pass. Both of them played a saucy little wedge to a foot, and that was that was put out on that beautiful. Comedy made Saturday night about it. I don't see anything but driver they're built of that. That was one of my favorite moments of the whole week. When you ask the question of Brooks and Mike Michaels, Brooks rechannelling Arnold Palmer there were that drive on the first of all. He just gave the blank stare of a man who has no clue what you're talking about. And then yet, like when you hit driver, you know, kind of like Arne did at cherry hills. It was great that look on his face as Larry as Well, well..

"On golf dot com. Now you're, you're recap of Tigers vary, eventful PG champion. We gotta start with the man himself. What did you think of his performance? What what do we take away from this? Do you feel we've paid tribute to mama's on the hill yet? I mean, this one that you want to go, I got to say pizza was incredible. The pennant Peniel vodka off the charts salad courses. Great. Parmesan, how about the? How about the fire hydrant outside painted in the colors of the flag, try touch well and fire hydrant tiger. I know you. That was not an accident. Yeah. Dog just go back to you for one quick minute. So Yogi grew up here. We just learned from our waiter across the street from drew casual or very much very much nearby. And I've always loved Yogi. And then when I was on the Philadelphia Inquirer, probably thirty plus years ago, I covered a celebrity tournament where yo use plying, and and you know, it was a famous wit as most people do, and the city is playing in this tournament golf courses. Beautiful spectacular is perfect. And the course superintendent or greenkeeper comes up and says, Yogi, how do you like my fairways in Yogi looks out at the fairways fairway and says, it's too narrow. That's so good. Just genius was trying to be funny. It's just being accurate. Actually wonder how much he's trying to be funny. Yeah, it was. I mean, at some point he had to know he was funny even if you didn't think he was this particular settled. I don't think he knew, but it was like it was like Arnold when Arnold orange play in the masters anymore. I'm afraid that might get a letter. You know everyone correct up, not being accurate and truthful. Yeah. I mean, there are accidents, funny people. I think Dustin Johnson is accidentally profile. Like in Forrest Gump kind of way out. That's quite a statement. I mean, it's just I don't think I kept sir. I don't think I don't think he means to be. It just comes out that way. And I mean, Dustin, this century began with his eighty at Pebble Beach, not century decade. This decade began with his eighty Pebble Beach, and it was bracketed by his forty one on Saturday at at Shinnecock Hills and do more missed opportunities. I mean, he went one major championship after all those chances leaking a lot about Dustin this week. This was this was his last chance to redeem the whole decade. Well, you wrote a brilliant game story that's up on GOP dot com right now. And one of the seems obvious, but I haven't read it elsewhere. This Brooks Cup because when three times more majors than Justin Johnson. But my question to you is straight up, who do you think is more talented gopher Brooks Cup gore? Doesn't Johnson. It has to be books kept because he gets it done when a matters. I mean, Dustin can bring it more often..

"And because the contras of the green has just just enough teeth in it to make it interesting is well said, the reason I'm making a face, here's they've been promoting the Senior Open and they've showed a photograph of two unlikely players. One of whom was John Daly, and I've not been able for week now. I haven't been able to identify who the other player was. So many years have passed, but it was Constantino Rocca realize now now I don't know if either of those guys are playing next week, but I noticed that today they replace John Daly was no longer being shown in constant roken replace it with Fred and Bernhardt. Well, this one quick note. I'm Bernhardt what a stud. I mean. That was just an radical, what he did this week at age sixty one under at the open championship in what sixty? Six nine. What did you shoot he he he played unbelievable. Gall six, nine Saturday and I think it level today. Yeah, it's truly it'd be a stunner if he doesn't win, doesn't win the open at a. He's an absolute inspiration really, really is, and he's got a sort of droll humor and. That's probably most under anything about Bernie longer is yet sixty eight seventy one on the weekend. That's. Stout. That's very stuff. I think we're drinking some. All right. I think this is where we're going to cling glasses for the listeners. You're the Jay z. that's his toasts probably has probably got up from his lawyers and agents. Go down the road any further. This was this was great, fun, Michael things always time. Thank you to the listeners accept or apologies. We will do this again. I'm sure from Bellevue even in a few Marriott. No, I've heard anything about Saint Louis.

Great to get for podcast and San Luis Bob Goalby. Oh, that's good. Call cools mini golf. What was what is great quote when it comes to the last hole and you have to make a putt to win the masters.

"Hello. This is Alice ship Naga back for another podcast with knocked down. It is Sunday night in Scotland. I'm here with my we man, Michael Bamberger. We were buzzing from great open and some fiscally cross cider of I'm drunk. Half aside or he's in the bag. We knew we had to do this at a pub. We consider the Dunvegan. We consider the jigger, but we instead we've, we've wound up at the roughly country house very charming place which has some providence. There's a photo there's photos of all the golfers who have stayed there. Tell me tell me what we should probably tell the listenership that we're that we're not incur newsy that we're in the outskirts of injuries, and this is an old time you hotel of favor and my pets. This was my friend Neil Oxman caddies for Tom Watson has stayed here Neil Stater, Watson savior, Nicklaus's have stayed here for your in that. So I do about it. And that's where we're at. We're watching stays in Watson, stays Jack, stays Jack, Jack, Barbara's you should go. Barbara has good taste in Barbara's. Good taste exactly. We, we chose Saint Andrews home base because it's wonderful and it's charming and it was his neither of those things. But it was, I think it was a good call. Goes a lot of driving a quick Barbara story and hotels. I've probably this tube before by the many, some listeners may be will not do the strip. Barbara jacker super loyal to hotels and and their hotel when the open was Birkdale is a place called. Dear, the prince, George. Okay. And when you're doing a heat wave there, say the prince George prince urge ago up surgery down, didn't matter. They were the print search. And when you're doing a heatwave. Jack was barely hot. So you opened up all the windows as you would do, but muted across breeze. So he opened up the hotel door there, the door, the hotel door, Jack, and it's and it's Barbara in their and their daughters. Well, and but because he was afraid that his golf clubs might be stolen. He set up an alarm system, but the alarm system was such that he just stacked empty suitcases on top future in front of the door thinking that if someone tries to come in here this cases collapse and I don't know if he won the one that open, but you and I both have the same thing where a lot of talking here could use drunk. But we both have an affinity for the hotels where the players stay and I'm sure what would have some things you've picked up on over the you're saying player hotels. Well, it's interesting. I think that it peaked and maybe it's because of Airbnb that seems like a lot more people are staying in private housing than they used to certainly a subplot to this week world, the frat house, where Johnson and speed and Kisner all those guys were sticking by the way very promise. I never type the word haircut once this entire week. I, I think that's the case with you. Tell tell the listeners, your haircut story, Michael. Well, are you saying, but would you have favorite hotel players spotting hotel? I'm trying to think, well, I mean drowsy. Great. In the old days, if Evan was there. There's some ambience noise Veria that wasn't the heavy breer there. The waffle house in Augusta that was wash wash house. The four seasons in Dallas was fantastic still is now not more. They went to trinity, but for a long time, that was a great one. The hotter hotel. A lot of the players still stay there Spanish bay or the lodge, the Capelle that's crawl, players you can go on down the list. I mean, there's still certain spots where it's it's advantageous, but I feel like you don't see as many players at these. Maybe they've become more private and age of social media, and they're afraid of getting hit with photos and videos and sell fees. You know that that sense of privacy loss. I'm like. We used to cover the open the nineties and you'd still see Jack in town? Yep, you'd see Watson. I mean, these guys that was part of the the experience. Then they liked immerse themselves in the culture. Even Joe Ogilvie..
