That they call to head minute. Perry. We're talking way out. That's all started last last period. Member when headmen and period just about the end.

At 16 Klingberg comes in. Laney have had some opportunities to get their fourth goal pocket off the post. And Marines original shot was a save for the goalie, Khudobin.

Why The Clippers Collapsed
"It felt like something was happening. There is something about the emotion. Past. Was Now you've? Seen. This isn't a story. Be The athlete. It stays with you. There Sam first of all, where are you right now I'm in the NBA bubble a new home away from home inside my hotel room and Casillas number to think twenty seven, twenty two is the room number if anybody wants to. Send packages or love one of the two But yeah, this is this is why these days. How has your bubble experience been so far to be honest committed it's gotten better. The airport experience was felt more stressful than I thought it went I actually had to masks because the end ninety five that US was one of those that does not protect the other person. So I put a cloth masks over that and then I ended up doing facial as well and it was the right move except man that first day travel psychologically I, remember just getting. Into, the hotel room just going Oh, boy that was the longest day of travel. I've ever had because mentally you can't smile at people. You can't talk to people that got me off to a tough start and then it's a nice room but the windows don't open you can't have a window open. There's no balcony unfortunately, the floor when I got here had not been cleaned so I would pay some walk and have bare feet in at the end of the. Day My feet would be black and so that mentally can after four five, six days you're sitting there going man I feel like I'm in this kind of dirty box. The other stuff that the players have talked a lot about is that even if the accommodations are fairly nice, it's just the psychological restriction and lack of freedom and knowing that you cannot go where you want to go. You can go on a walk around the perimeter, but if you go that. Direction and if you even go ten feet past the perimeter, you'll get seven days a quarantine. You know the other stuff also as it's just the interpersonal relationships and the people that everybody left behind you know whether you have a family or a girlfriend or a boyfriend whatever it is all that stuff adds up to a pretty challenging landscape had a productive couple of days. I'm going to carve out a little mental health time and there's a big pick ballgame happening. This afternoon with me in a few writers. I'm getting there. Well. So speaking of all of these challenges as in the bubble, let's talk about this epic meltdown of the team, a lot of people expected to at all the clippers. mcnuggets Oregon on time La. Twenty point lead with two ten remaining. This is absolutely shocking. What went wrong with the La Against Denver I think the broadview for me would be that we always felt like this team was potentially far too transactional if that makes sense. Somebody the other day, use the word mercenaries where it's kind of like I collide Leonard Paul. George have a ton of talent and they looked very good for most of the regular season. But in the bubble, what you saw was a team that was still learning one another in a team that wants the pressure continued to be applied by these other very good playoff teams. They did not have the fabric, the togetherness that connectivity and leadership to get through that. In Game Seven, I sat about twenty feet away from the clippers bench and that meant that I watched a clippers bench that with around seven minutes to go and I think they were down around thirteen at the time they just completely look like they gave up. This is what your best players got to elevate their game. And the clippers have disappointed asphalt. From the field. Two points in the fourth quarter. And frustrated, the stock of the heads went down the talking stopped you had all of a sudden whereas earlier in the game there was a flood of support and clapping from guys on the bench and intensity and passion. You had the golf clap clippers owner Steve bomber feeling like limber fans right now. I am absolutely shocked. Give this Denver Nuggets team a lot of credit. have taken the fight away from the clippers. deservedly. So the leadership thing is what they need to analyse going forward because as amazing Kawhi is he's incredibly quiet. We know that and Paul George I don't think has really ever found his leadership voice maybe that's just not the type of personality he is. But if you compare them to that other team in La, you know you've got a dude and Lebron whose so fogel and raise on Rhonda who sell vocal and I think if I had to pinpoint one of the biggest factors that kind of led to their demise I think it would be that. you and our colleague Yvonne Boo reported on chemistry issues within the clippers back. In January, did you get the sense that those issues were still present inside the bubble? So I don't I wish I had a better pulse on that. You Doc was kind of the main voice that I heard. I went to to other practices where I would listen closely to what doc had to say, and one thing that struck me was he would very candidly talk about how they were still learning each other as a team in the middle of the playoffs I look at the whole picture and I realize we haven't been together we haven't had a lot of time together. So I get it. You had the old guard, the Lou, Williams Pat Beverley mantras hair let group that did some pretty special things and the playoffs last year and was gritty and would play forty eight minutes a night if you wanted them to. Now, they tried to integrate with Choline Paul who came with the very different script and a very different style and combining the old and the new had its fits and starts, and certainly in the end, it seems like a lot of those things out. Cherishing teams are. The more chemistry for this group. D, better. I think that's really the tell at a tape with the season just didn't have enough time together. Paul George has been vocal about the mental toll of being in the bubble a couple of weeks ago. Paul George talked about being in a dark place whatever. The bubble got the best of me. I was just in a dark place. A really wasn't here. I checked out and SAM. You've gotten a taste of what it's like to be an isolation down there. We've just talked about that. Do you feel like Paul George and the clippers were maybe hit harder by the challenges of playing in this Environment Paul for sure I mean I applaud him for his willingness to speak openly about it, and then only he knows where his head was at in the later part of the series but I'll never forget I mean right corner. He shoots that three and it clicks off the backboard George. Why office to side of the backboard left corner he barely draws rim on three George Corner three way off short. Gets the rebound Paul George. Now, just to for ten from downtown they were more shook I don't know how to explain it than any NBA team I've ever seen in a crucial moment. I've never seen anything like that. So I don't know how Paul's State of mind came into play but I do think the clippers had a really hard time getting through all that stuff. So Sam what comes next for the clippers, they have a lot of strong personalities and obviously some divisions between them can they hold it together and be titled Favorites Again Next Year you know to be determined. There's already a little bit of a growing sense or at least questions around the League of are they is there any chance they would think about blowing this out because you got to remember to why Paul signed deals they're up next summer they can get out and and when they came to the clippers. People felt like it was unofficially you know a lifetime contract because those guys have the personal connection to the area but I think we're quickly getting reminded that if the basketball situation is not right and if their work life is negative, then you absolutely can't rule out the possibility of them changing their minds. Year and maybe sounding somewhere else you know the NBA rules are when you have a superstar a year away from free agency YOU'RE GONNA probably have to take those phone calls from other teams if you're not getting assurances and promises from those players that they're not going anywhere. So they've got a lot of questions to have answered and it's going to be painful for them to watch this Lakers nuggets series knowing how close they came.
Talking Arab-Israeli Peace with Acting Consul General Israel Nitzan
"Israel needs on is a veteran. Israeli. Diplomat who has served in a diverse array of postings from Egypt to the UN to his current role as Israel's acting consul general in New York. There's been a lot of news out of Israel lately and Acting Consul General Nitzan joins us now to help us break it down and to share his country's view Israel. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you very much. Now we wanted to have. You on this week in particular because Israel has brand new diplomatic ties with the UAE and bunkering and you are one of the relatively few Israeli diplomats who actually already has experience representing Israel in an Arab country what do you think actual practical on the ground peace with the in both rain might look like is it going to be similar to the Israel Egypt relationship that you know up close or is it going to be something totally different? Of. All I. think that it is different. This agreement is an important milestone region undermine stolen today in our Middle East. So we strategically and regionally, it strengthens our actually formalize ties within our relationship with very important regional glares in the Arab. Gulf. Sunni Arab countries who first of all perceived a threat posed by Iran we showed the perception of the threat posed by Iran and we agree also on the ways to address this threats basically I think that in the last few weeks I, think that both Israel and needs Sunni Arab neighbors in the Gulf called on the International. Community to continue in the maximum pressure on Iran. So this is at least from this angle. Secondly, you mentioned Egypt and I think that in many ways yes it is going to be a different kind of beast i. think it seems that is much warmer piece. I think that the key to peace in our region is encouraging more and more people to people engagement, and this is what we've seen in the last few weeks when people from the Gulf on social media, it seems clear that there are thrilled about the relationship very excited, actually encouraging and initiating a dialogue with Israelis This is great and I think that this is the key to any future of peace in our region especially with our neighbors that people people engagement is so key and it's so interesting. I mean Israel has had peace with Jordan for. Twenty Five Years Twenty six years peace with Egypt for even longer there's a little bit of Sinai tourism but like it's not a thing for Israelis to you know drive to Amman for lunch right? Do you think Israelis are going to fly to Dubai? Abu Dhabi. Fly to Montana and kind of explore the Arab, Gulf. I think definitely, yes. Of course, we are in a different reality to covid nineteen but I think that the expectation is already an ongoing dialogue between Israelis and moralities over zoom Israeli universities, research centres startups have already reached out and initiated this very important dialogue with their colleagues into golf. They'll talking about basically using our innovative meaning both Israel and the UAE innovative spirit. You know the the needs of people and I think that this is also one thing that is clear that the idea here in this piece that we prioritize both Israel in the UAE, prioritize the needs. Of their people and this is the first step you know to promote the regional peace no. As we said, there is an ongoing dialogue between the peoples between Israeli civil society between startups between companies in Israel I. think that You you mentioned my experience in Egypt and I think that what? I know from my experience in Egypt, the pieces for our job I need must be nurtured, and in many ways, the key to everything is education especially educating the younger generation basically educating them to accept the other two except the different to accept Israel as a legitimate neighbor. In many ways, I, think that the secret to success of any peace in our region will be found in the media and the textbooks, and basically these two means educating people today first of all in the media forming an encouraging public opinion supportive of peace. And also the textbooks educating the leaders of tomorrow through schools, universities, and basically educating them about accepting the other accepting Israel as a neighbor as A. Member neighbor-. Neighborhood
What's the Difference Between a Toxic Employee or Manager and a Difficult One?
"When it comes to managers we've all had difficult managers and we all had demanding managers, but with the fines demanding manager from toxic one. Is it demanding manager? is going to have expectations that are big maybe bold, but they're realistic. A toxic manager is going to provide expectations the he or she knows are unattainable. And in North Dakota Mechanism for unrealistic expectations. What's that? Do not care. The. Only way we as human beings deal with unrealistic expectations which we know are created so that we can't obtain achieve them is to not. And we all know those employers. Don't come to that conclusion and just share this dragon into the woods and they just have a miserable life in and outside of the workplace. So for manager, we look at real except realistic expectations for general employees. Let a when their behavior and performance becomes motive driven beyond the job responsibilities at the. Position and finally I think we all know this. That quite often toxic employees are also involved by people in power. Think of CEO's nephew senior executives, golfing buddy or worse yet, the employees have released an appropriate relationship apparently, that's not appropriate relationship with someone of influence. So it's bad when you're with a toxic employees, it's really not good if we have a toxic man for. Like when they're connected to people in power, they're just unapproachable and run free and create, sustain, and expanding toxicity and the whole culture. One person we've all seen this one CEO one executive. Even one employee. Who is truly toxic? Can have a tremendous impact on the culture of any organization. Yeah I'm afraid a lot of people have experienced it, but somehow you know it's real easy to have your own insecurity say well, maybe it's just me you know maybe I need to do X. or I need to do why and it takes some time for people to wake up and say now this is just plain wrong and they're not privileged to do this. There's just it's just not right. It's not fair. You mentioned something earlier about. Looking for toxicity in the hiring process because it seems like that would be your ideal weeding out spot. What kind of things do you look for? That would make you say okay. Yeah. On paper this person has terrific experience great credentials but then in the inner reprocess, something just is off what are those things that you would be looking for in an interview process that would suggest that maybe this person could be toxic. I have. Several clients, we have a service where I'll do finally vetting. And I just come in at the very end. And, just spend some time currently with the situation now on. US. And I just come in. As. A person to look at the person. I'm not immersed in these organizations that I support clients I don't know them in and out and up and down, and that's a good thing because I'm not carrying my filters in the organizational biases come with being entrenched in an organization I'm just looking at the person. You know my goal is what my Andro tells us. You know when someone shows themselves believe that? Anybody can anybody can get through a thirty sixty minute interview my role my job is to. Get them into the most comfortable south. Try to get them to reveal themselves beyond simple interview questions. Most people when they do interviews the
Sports Overload (MM #3465)
"The Maison with Kevin Nation could America be suffering from Sports overload right now? Well, if the early NFL ratings or anything, it could be Thursday when the NFL debuted it was the first day I think in history where the NBA Major League Baseball NHL NFL WNBA and I think tennis and golf were all playing. I think NASCAR ran a truck race Thursday, but people aren't watching the first few games of the NFL Thursday night football game. The first game of the season was down 16% from last year Sunday nights first NFL game was down 28% and it had teams like Los Angeles and Dallas to Big teams and numbers on Sunday games from both Fox and CBS were up and down wasn't really about football. Was it really about sports overload or was it something else? Nobody knows for sure, but I know people were watching the NFL ratings are tad bit concerned right now because everybody was waiting for the NFL to get back and well, it doesn't look like people are watching something bigger is afoot I think we'll figure out soon won't wage.

Trump to Visit California After Criticism Over Silence on Wildfires
"Going to begin right now going straight to California, which is facing, of course, record breaking wildfires more than three million acres burned joining me live. Los, Angeles mayor said he Mayor Garcetti, he thanks for joining us. We're seeing these horrific scenes out of the west coast the Bobcat fire burning fewer than twenty five miles outside of Los Angeles as of yesterday that fire destroyed almost thirty thousand acres. It's only six percent contained right now president trump is going to travel to your state tomorrow to meet local officials. He approved disaster relief for your stay three weeks ago. Are You satisfied with the trump administration's response? Well we always have great cooperation with our federal agencies and I want to thank them for that because they do step up whether it's corona virus or whether it's fires but I think leadership at the very top needs to be earlier stronger and from the President I wish that we would get as much attention not based on an electoral map but just. Purely on being Americans and the need for leadership to be from the white. House for all of America You know whether it's twin hurricanes on the Gulf coast or fires here on the West Coast we're one nation and sometimes looking at the leadership that comes out. It's easy to forget that it's taken three weeks I'm glad he's coming but. We need much more help when we have firefighters dying on the line and Washington refuses to help states and refuses to help local governments that are the first responders to emergencies like this. It's unconscionable. So instead of hitting the golf course going on vacation the president, the Congress respectively should sit down this week and finally make sure that there is assistance for. These brave men and women who are protecting our lives and protecting our property well to be clear. What exactly are you saying? President trump in your view would have done differently of California were say a republican state like Louisiana A or other states in the Gulf, Texas what what what would have done differently because he did sure Clare Disaster three weeks ago. Absolutely and I always say that that's very important that those agencies respond. We get good coordination but there's a refusal to blaming of blue states over red states in his mind I remind people there's a million Republicans that live here in the city of Los Angeles even if you're a partisan, you should be stepping up with empathy you should be stepping up with helping with a new cares act when people are slashing local government and state government laying people off this is bad for our economy. This is bad for our emergency response. It's terrible for our corona virus response, and so we need leadership that is equal across this country instead of being partisan and divisive, and it's very clear. This president seems to divide more. He's going to come out here and probably tell us I gonNA send you rakes instead of more help we need actual help material help not based on our party affiliation or how we voted leadership isn't about grudges. It's about governing for all. Well, let's talk about that because. Of Atta Rally last night president trump repeatedly told his supporters that containing the wildfires is all about forest management in. As you note, he's frequently criticised California for failing to rake the forest floors to prevent wildfires What's your response? What are the facts behind this? Well I listen to fire professionals not the president of the United States are politician when it comes to actually what causes these fires It's been very clear that years of drought seeing whether it's too much water and too much rain in parts of our country right now or too little. This is climate change and this is an administration that's put its head in the sand while we have democratic and Republican mayors across the. Country stepping up to do their part this is a administration president who wants to withdraw from the Paris climate. Accord's a later this year the only country in the world to do so Talk to a firefighter. If you think the climate change is real and it seems like this administration last vestiges of the flat earth. Society of this generation, we need real action we need to actually reduce the carbon emissions that we have and we. Need to make sure we can manage that water and this is not about just forced management or raking anybody who lives here in California insulted by that quite frankly and keeps perpetrating this live.

"The original pandemic Gender reveals. Maybe just maybe we got the vaccine this weekend. Maybe they will never bother us again because one of these unnecessary reveals is now the cause.

The video has not been released yet because there's an ongoing investigation now. Everybody involved apparently has been cooperating with officials. But the guy or the woman, the person who actually ignited his device could could be charged with a crime here and held liable for the fires. But the moral of the story is just stop doing this. Stop hitting golf balls. Stop letting off balloon that choke birds. Just stop it. Just tell me what kid you're having. And let's move on. I got to tell you. I have so many thoughts on this number one California has been like the inside of a pizza oven for like, three weeks now why you would drag anybody to a park to do outdoors These days? Your gender reveal in California is anybody's guess. Like 118 degrees. Yeah, everybody. Let's go outside. To go to the steam bath toe burn to a crisp that you know that we're having a girl. I mean, could you imagine how how completely thoughtless this is for your family lift, drag you to a park outdoors when it's 180. Number two on the outside to make a baby. I don't want to be able to find out what your baby is Number two. The gender reveal stuff. It's so overboard. But now we need pyrotechnics. Now there's a some oak freaking machine, a smoke machine. You need a smoke machine. For this. It's already over the top, dragging everybody to a park to learn. Who cares. You're having a baby. Whether it's a boy or a girl. The baby will be loved. The baby will be adored. That's what people do with babies. Thankfully, it doesn't matter what gender you have, and I've got to go back to my own wife. Because

Pelvic Floor Therapy with Melissa Dessaulles
"Would love for you to tell us to start just a little bit about yourself and how you got into all of this. Absolutely. So I live in on the west coast basically of Canada. So in British Columbia I've been I might sometimes they physio because in Canada we refer to ourselves as physios but I'll try to physical therapists came. I've been physical therapist for fourteen years never thought by calling would be talking to people about their vaginas. Or like peeing and pooping, and then I had a baby out of China and That was seven years ago I had my first and I would say that as kind of snow, I was like smacked in the head with all these things that time seven years ago. No one even talked about this. So even as a physical therapist, it was not on my radar very active I was very fit I thought I'd Kinda just strong power through this and I was totally raw onion. So it was when I started getting help that I thought this is really important and ever since then that's that's all I've done that's what I do now. In my clinical practices, see lots of. You know. OC. Men some women and you're right mostly pregnancy and postpartum related issues but lots of people that have never had babies to. Have Two kids. Now I have a seven year old daughter and a four year old son. So you're probably a lot more prepared with the four year old then pelvic floor. I would say that it was less like I wouldn't say the birth that. And I would say my mindset about it was different I in. In. At least this time feeling prepared and I wasn't so overwhelmed by what is this GonNa look like and I knew what to do after I. Felt a little bit more confident and afterwards when I was having weird symptoms like peeing or pressuring my Vagina Felt. Weird. It wasn't so scary as a golf course I'm having this based on what happened and here are some things that I can do. So, I would love to kind of dive into a lot of the misconceptions because when people think public four health, the one word comes their mind key goals or K. goals. How do you say it? I say. So. In I think that there's tons of misconceptions about that as well because there's a right way to do it but there really a wrong way. Well. You're right. It gets a lot of it gets a lot of talk but I think a lot of people don't understand what it truly is. I always explain the public floors very similar to other muscles in our body, and we know, for example, are biceps because we can see it all the time but every muscle in our body, let's use the by for example, needs to be able to go from like a relaxed position to a tight position. Okay and it spends its day doing all all movements in between there some when we when we do things like lift something heavy to set past the titan when we go to bed at night relaxes and the pelvic poor, very similar when we do things like the cause pressure cough or sneeze or lift something heavy or jump, the pelvic floor needs to respond with tension, but it needs to tighten like and stop us from the beginning p. But when the pressure is gonNA. Stop coughing redone are jumper what we put down the heavy object pellet worshiped relax so it's very similar in that way that it has to tighten and relax it does this behind the scenes it's very automatic. That's why people don't know much about their pelvic for. US doing a Keitel is our way of controlling those muscles and tightening them a win. The pelvic floor heightens the holes close. So kind of the P. Tube and the and the NS clothes and everything s bottom up. There's no name for relaxing the pelvic floor though so Heels tightening. There's no name for relaxation. But as you know from every other muscle in the body, both are important. No muscle in the body wants to be high all the time or it doesn't. Work very well if you came into the clinic Mosa. My neck is so tight like is would that be you wouldn't be coming in writing about that it would be giving you problems and I think that that's one of the biggest misconceptions is that. All symptoms are result of weakness, and so therefore, we think we should just be tightening tightening tightening. But sometimes again, if you came in with pain in your neck, you'd probably have tension in your. If I told you to keep tightening, you'd think I was crazy. and. So when we keep tightening and tightening autour perpetuating the problem
Armed and Dangerous: America's New Law and Order
"Number has the phrase law and order is invoked by a president come to mean. So clearly, it's opposite illegality and disorder starting with the first illegality like. Twice on Wednesday Donald Trump encouraged his north Carolina followers to cast two ballots one by mail and one in person it in early and then go and vote. At of it's not tabulated you vote and the vote is GonNa Count You can't let them take you vote away. These people are playing dirty politics. In some states you can ask for your mail in ballot to be invalidated but intentionally voting twice is fraud nfl any in most states, the president defended seventeen year old kyle written house who traveled with an assault rifle from his Illinois home to Kenosha. Wisconsin to enforce law and order, and now stands charged with six criminal counts including first degree, intentional homicide, first degree, reckless homicide, recklessly endangering safety and possession of a dangerous weapon is a minor. He shot to protesters to death and wounded a third but to trump, he is the victim he was trying to get away from them. I guess looks like any fell and then they very violently attacked him. And it was something that we're looking at right now and it's under investigation but I guess he was in very big trouble he would have been. He probably would have been killed this but one week after his Republican convention showcased accused felons mark and Patty mccloskey who brandished guns at peaceful protesters in front of their saint, Louis home and who are now official. GOP. Spoke gunman for the false narrative of White America under siege, they're not satisfied with. Spreading chaos and violence into our communities they want to abolish the suburbs altogether by ending single family homes zoning this forced rezoning would bring crime lawlessness and low quality apartments and now thriving suburban neighborhoods lie after lie after lie from the husband and wife rich lawyer militia from the trump campaign and from the Hague factory of Fox News when the writers come for your town. And they're coming. We'll biden and his team enough to stop them. And the answer is clearly no these are people are now crossing state lines clearly, and this is being organized using the Internet they will burn down your cities and tell you you did it. And if you don't accept that judgment, maybe they'll send them to your house the same race baiting law and order rhetoric whistled by Richard Nixon and Ronald. Reagan now literally weaponized. Let's just put aside lethal pandemic denial in paranoid Cunanan fantasies at least for a second and considered trump's warnings of the quote dark shadows and deep state moles controlling Joe. Biden. Those thugs clad in black on airplanes bound to destroy us. There are people that are on the streets. There are people that are controlling the streets. We had somebody getting plane from a certain city this weekend, an end, the plane it was almost completely loaded with with thugs wearing these dark uniforms, black uniforms with gear and this and that their. Plan whereas the. I'll tell you sometimes, but it's under investigation. They have scary year even have menacing lunch people coming over with bags of so big bags of and they laid on the ground the anarchist's take that they start throwing it at our cops that our police. and. If it hits you, that's worse than a breakfast. It's got force soup assaults on police. He says every one of whom deserve unwavering support even after the use of deadly force against so many black men and women in this greatest of nations excluding, of course, the anarchic tarts defend their actions against fake news. He says so quick to smear cops for letting their nerves get the best of luck they choke just like in a golf tournament they miss a three foot comparing it to golf because he of course, that's what I'm saying people. Chip I. DO think that there appears to be a phenomenon in the country where African Americans feel that they're treated when they're stopped by police week widely. As suspects before they're treated as citizens. I don't think that that necessarily reflect some. Deep, seated Racism in in police departments or in most police officers meanwhile, Bill Bar, the nation's keep law enforcer shrugs at the notion that all too frequent lethal force against black people signifies systemic racism. He also mischaracterizes details of Jacob Blake's arrest on sexual assault charges caught on video that left him with seven bullets in the back courtesy of Canossa policemen from the Jacob case, he was in the midst of committing a felony and he was armed. No though police later reported finding a knife in the car, Blake was surrounded by police walking slowly and unarmed when he was shot. which is where black lives matters comes from, which is why there are protests nationwide, which is why trump is trying to portray.

Japan's Prime Minister resigns for health reasons
"It is a week or so since Japan's longest-serving, Prime Minister Shinzo are announced that he would be standing down for health reasons that discreet interval having elapsed those who fancy succeeding him as leader of the Liberal Democratic Party and therefore Prime Minister of beginning to make themselves known among the first out of the traps is Yoshi suger currently chief cabinet secretary already seen as the favorite the former foreign, Minister Fumio Kishida and former. Defense. Minister Shapiro she but also like their chances, the decision is due on. September. Fourteenth joining me with more is molecules Tokyo bureau chief. Your New Wilson. Fiona is this the one horse race that some are already calling it? Yes, I'm afraid I think it is amazing. Things have happening over the last couple of days in Japan you're right there are three key people standing but really the LDP party, the party executives have swung into action and pretty much. So not the race for Soga to win it's going to be very difficult for him to lose the L. TPS. Famously, it's got these factions seven factions and it seems that saga although he only just a matter of hours go announced. His candidacy seems he's already secured. Five of the seven factions. Votes can be quite hard to beat him and yesterday that was an amazing meeting of the Executive Council of the Party and they decided not to bother with the votes from the rank and file, which really sent a clear signal because among the rank and file issue the former defense minister, he's the top choice. He's also the top choice with the public. He pulls much higher than Sukkur and clearly the party Did Not want him to win. So the in a way it's been rigged actually the vote and it's very good news for Soga and not for anyone else standing on that point though if Ishiba is the more popular candidate among the actual Japanese Public Roy is he not seen as more of a contender by the Party grandees? It's interesting. He's been relentless critic of Shinzo Bay and that's one him. No friends he he just does not have enough support within the party and it's a sort of a grudge I suppose you could say he stood against. A couple of times in two, thousand and twelve he stood against obey. He actually won the first round when it was, you know down to the rank and file he won. He lost in the second round when it came down to the the members of the politicians. So he's he's seen as trouble he's criticized throughout he you know I in a natural way he's got plenty to say about what's going on within his own party. He's he's being critical of our based diplomacy. He thinks it's to US centric he he feels that the stimulus packages that she has set the ABA. Policies that he's feels not sustainable in the long term and he's voiced very openly. So he's one no friends within the policy leaders and I think now it's unfortunately for him. It's coming home to roost. So if we are going to have to get used to the idea of your Shahida, suge as the next prime minister of Japan, do we understand yet what sort of prime minister he intends to be? Basically, who is he? Yeah, it's an interesting one I mean. People outside Japan wet name much about him although he's been obeys right hand man throughout since two thousand twelve he's he's the public face of the government. He's the top spokesperson. He's there every day at the press conferences batting off critism of Shinto. Ebbe. There are questions about unfortunate scandals, how how Abbas dealing with the pandemic. It's been super who's dealt with all that. So he is a very, very well known face here. He's. He's sometimes referred to his uncle ray were not not particularly affectionately, but he was the man who revealed the name of the new Japanese era when there's new. The new era begins and we are now in the era of war and he was the man who revealed that on television. So he's sort of got this nickname, but there's not a lot. He's revealed about himself personally in seventy one. Well, when when he came on today his press conference, he pretty much announced exactly what kind of prime minster he'll be, which is continuity Abba he said he'll be dealing with coronavirus. He'll continue with up a NOMEX and he'll continue Abbas diplomatic policy which is based on the US Japan. Alliance and I think that's where he differed from issue who was trying to do the exact opposite really saying. Issue has been saying we need more friends in south. East Asia not so US centric, he doesn't fancy what they call the golf diplomacy the great bromance between trump and pay, which is much spoken of. Not. Sure. How much trump considered it although he did he did tweets that he considered to be Japan's greatest prime minister which prompted much hilarity on twitter to see if anyone could ask trump who was his second greatest pick suspecting that he probably couldn't name and other Japanese prime minister so that that really he's continuity and for some people about important but it seems the public were they wanted a bit of change maybe not a complete revolution. They've maybe would have liked to fresh face, but it looks like it's going to be so good and it's a very short election campaign really starts in the seventh ends on the fourteenth with the Prime Minister being appointed on the sixteenth seventeenth in a special session just finally, and briefly owner is it politically viable for the Liberal Democratic Party just to install him as prime minister and let him crack on there won't be any talk of early general election or anything. There isn't at the moment, but there has to be a general election by next Autumn Anyway twenty, twenty one. This is so. It would be pretty remarkable if he were to come in and immediately call a general election. So I think not. But there are some very dissenting voices I notice the Asahi Shimbun, huge center-left newspaper second-biggest paper. In Japan, remember the circulations are enormous and described this whole process of how suit of being shoehorned into the role as bleak and pathetic. So it's not like There is across the board support for is going to have a bit of a battle with the public. He hasn't actually put a foot wrong so far he said very little. He only announced his candidacy tonight so. We'll see how it turns out but at the moment, it looks like it's going to be business as usual. If, you're on a Wilson in Tokyo Bureau.

By Value Roms and expensive by. He's eleven thousand, so that would qualify him as a horse okay. So my horse based on those qualifications. Is Ricky Fowler now. He's not my. He's not my pick to win. Oh Roms might pick the win. Picked to win. Yeah, okay so my pick to win. In, this based on number is a mid tier guy. Is Jordan spieth. What I think speaks GonNa win really yeah, a he's had success of discourse before, but man so you. Yeah. He's always been doing is playing Texas Golf. He's been spending thirteen weeks playing golf in Texas. Yes, so okay here's. To it, so I gotta sleeper dude that nobody's talking about. That's a Texas guy to or been Texas guy for a long time that again when no one talks about them like this. Only gas you already know you're already know. Taxes Guy. No one talks about him. let's see there's a couple of times when people are talking about. He's not. He's not a Texas native. Okay, hang on, but he lives in Texas now, and no one's talking about him and yet when people do start talking about him, It's not necessarily a good thing, but it fires him up anymore. Patrick Read Bra. That dues been. He's been another dude in Texas getting work done. Okay, so that's a good one get. That's my sleeper. Guy Is like man. This dude talk about a guy who is also a boss striker. Yup, not necessarily crazy long, but long enough and yet. Let Him, get near to get near contention and all boy. That's a good one And coming off coming off of such a layoff and stuff like that. It's like I'm. Working at if you're the gambling type, that's how you gotTA. Look at this tournament. You have to look at it to two things one who has to go through the inconvenience of travel. To who doesn't and type of player because I'm telling you colonia been there numerous times. It's a course that you should probably know, but it's a course that you can't just show up. After playing in Florida during the break Arizona during the break. You gotTA. Texas has to be factored in. If you're coming off rust, I would agree with that except the forecast isn't for the wind and so with the humidity. And temperature. That's going to be there. I'm not afraid to say that. A Florida Guy is south Florida guy especially is going to be I because a South Florida guy is like dealing with that kind of humidity and and plane on Bermuda. So. Those guys. Those guys wouldn't take out of the mix But like I said there's so. That's my my sleeper. Guy Is Patrick read by the guy who picked the win is is Jon Rahm. And you said you want like you, said a mid tier dude, so based while based. Here's what I'm saying like. A Horse for me was my horse to win. Is Ricky Fowler based on the numbers on draft kings like he's expensive, so he. Ricky Fowler if I'm picking it from the Horse to mid Tier, two sleeper horse, Rickie, Fowler a win a it tear my absolute. pick the tournament Jordan speeds. And my sleeper is someone. Like Zach. Johnson who we talked about before? WHO's one it who gets? It is not long always finds the fairway. So Ricky Jordan Zach for me. All right I'M GONNA go? I'M GONNA go buck wild. Moody like on I'm ago Bug wide on this one. Because I well I mean. Mid Tier because of the world rankings. I don't I'm not on draftkings so I don't know. But a guy who's one there before and because of that experience and because of. The, whole rust factor for everyone else not being afraid whatsoever. Oh I can't believe I'm going here, but. I feel it man I feel like I'm I, looked at that list and was like Oh man and again. Coming in nobody saying nothing but. This man's birthday is coming up next week and now for the four play. Let's go Phil Mickelson own. Yeah Leave Means Fiftieth Birthday is coming up. Now. Let's see we can fill out on draftkings. Yeah, it's not this weekend but it's common. It's not think. Next.

"I think the biggest challenge is going to be. For the or and I think the biggest challenge is going to be. For the tour to not allow the minority. Backlash, the minority of people. Don't mean color wise. I mean the minority of people that will be trying to jump on a soapbox, and and like doing a Gotcha to the players in caddies, when in the heat of battle. They aren't social distancing so you? Know 'cause I better trying to keep away I. Try to keep you know because here's the thing like quite honestly. I I I'm a hundred percent with Pat Perez. You tested negative. Your caddy tested negative. If you're going out there to play, does go. Let's play. Let's play like. Let's play like I as a caddy. Quite honestly. So. I did I talked to one caddy and player who were a hundred percent like you know. We gotTA figure this out. We're GONNA. Be Social distancing. They came up with a plan. Like here's how we're going to do it. You know Blah Blah this and it's all, but I also not ask I was like so. Do you think you're going to be able to maintain this? The whole time and the do laughed at me. It was like there's no chance there's no chance like this is it's Mike, Tyson everybody has a game plan to give him hugs. Like everybody's going to be social distancing and trying to do the right thing until you make two bogeys in a row, and you start running hot, and you're near to cut line, and then what and it's like. Are you going to 'em. and. There's no way that I would do this because I don't think it's right. I'm not going to take a player in the caddy the task if there grinding to make the cut and they forget that they're not social distancing. I know that there's plenty of people out there. That's going to do it I'm not going to be one of them. 'cause personally. It's just too tough right now, and I don't quite honestly I. Know. This is going to sound horrible. I don't care. I don't care you. Don't care what I don't I don't care that they don't social distant. Hey! I don't hear but wait no timeout. I don't care that they don't social distancing. They're not wearing masks. Because both of them had nasal swab and were tested negative before this thing started, and they're quarantined to the best of the ability that the PGA tour has in in in that sense I'm with you on. Get off the pot light up at some point. We're all going to have to take another risk and just go out there at some point I'm going to have to get on a plane again and like if that plane crashes and I don't have covid. Is that what they're going to say? Well? At least he didn't get Kovin like the plane still crash. That's still sucks like if I get in a car accident like people are still getting killed in car accidents and they don't have. Your coming over to my side, water or come on. Let's go. It's not that I'm coming over to your side. Are Nah I don't think I am. Here's what I still want. What I still want is I still think that there still has to be comprehensive testing on I. Still think that they're potentially this later on because we're. Because we're opening up again I. DO think that there is going to be another spike I. DO think it's GonNa. Come back. Again and it might come back in bigger numbers than it was before and I do think it is something dangerous, and it's a pandemic, and it's something that has to be. Taken into consideration, but I also. I also believe that. We in this country should at least have the right and opportunity that if you're willing to take the risk that you should be allowed to do so. I don't think in doing that then. That also gives you the right to put other people who don't want to take that risk at risk. By and that's the difficulty, but you as an individual should be able to do that, and it's it is. It is very similar to what how I would say how how smoking is like. If there's one if you have a building, you like. This is a smoking building like everybody in this building smoking, and so if you walk into that building, you know everybody in their smoking. You know what your clothes smell like. You know what potentially could happen like all of those things you have the right to not go in that building you have the right to. Have to deal with any of those people. You don't have to like if you don't want to you, don't you? Don't have to and I think that should be an option, too so, but that's how I. Feel about this at the I just think. I think it's easy to say something like that I think putting it into practice is really really hard. And we're GONNA all have to learn from the challenges ahead as we see live golf for the first time in quite some time, thirteen weeks left play, and let's do predictions now okay, I have. Would I? Believe is just an absolute filthy draftkings, tame. I don't do that man, but so you go ahead I know you don't but when I'm going to do. We're going to do like we typically do Eileen.

"Thirteen week layoff. That you like ban, we couldn't go to a place raggedy. Just send driver. That's wide open fairway. We gotta go here. GotTa go we started molly. So! That's why I find this very interesting, because this place can eat you alive if you try. To play your typical game now off said that. When he's hitting on all cylinders that Justin Thomas is the best iron player in the world. He's a do. They could just show up at bomb iron off the tee all bay. Find his landing spot. Then go iron in and play really really welcome place absolutely so, and that's the thing. It's GonNa be like who can make the quickest adjustments to. getting back out there And Man let me tell you like the forecast for the week. It looks very very fortunate in. The Texas wins. Don't look horrific. That's the other thing about colonial is when the winds in Texas start, really pumping. It can be man they that it makes that even more brutal. There are very few straight holes that are straightforward and. In a sense, it's similar even though it's more wide open than where they're going next week at Hilton head. just because you're in the fairway doesn't necessarily. Allow you to take a deep breath. Because if you have a bad angle to wear some of the flags are, it can again be really really hard to do and in in looking at the forecast. How about this so? Thursday Texas Ninety three Friday Texas ninety, five Saturday Texas, Ninety, eight and Sunday in Texas Ninety seven saying. Because I mean. Yes that's that's just straight temperature, not heat index here. He likes going to be all over one hundred every day. Oh my gosh, which now for some guys who have not been training for that? hydration is going to be of the utmost importance and so is. Which? Brings US around to. I, don't from what I have. surmised in found out. And the tour could change this, but it's like box style lunches. So I don't know de can bring their own stuff. Yeah, yes, so that's one of the things, too, but like. If you get a real healthy salad. Let's say you're going to get a healthy. Tuna Salad. But you gotta throw that thing in the bag at. Seven o'clock in the morning, and it's ninety by ten and you're having lunch at noon. I'll know how awesome that lettuce in Tunis going to be. Get How much mayonnaise are you willing to do? Let's discuss that for a second because. I. AM intrigued as any because if we're being fair. Golf is a Country Club Sport Yup. These allowed. The most of these guys were brought up in the club circuit. As Kids So. How do I say this? There's GonNa. Be Adversity that these guys aren't used to dealing with in that is gonNA play into another whole bit of. challeges look what you're trying to say is sometimes these dudes come from spoiled backgrounds, and sometimes when you're on the PGA tour. If you've been there for a while, you are spoiled. Catered you're more spoiled than the general public knows about and so what happens when you take those? And then when you take those amenities that spoilt people get what happens when you take them away. How do those spoil people and start acting when it's like I'm very sorry, it's not been available now. One thing that has to be a public of course they're. They're going to be playing no forces. No colonials colonials completely private now. But what I see what you're saying, but because of the box lunch and all that, but look one of the enemies amenities that they didn't think they were gonNA have this week. They have that I think makes a huge difference, and that is courtesy cars. Now next week. It Hilton head. There are no courtesy cars but this week. Air By getting Alexis right, so it's like maybe I'm eating a box lunch, but at least I'm meeting the box in my lexus courtesy car, which makes me feel a little bit better, the other thing that's wild that. I I really I didn't put too much into it until I spoke to someone I'm close with. On the phone last night. WHO had gotten there? And, that is if you remember that returned to golf packet that they sent out. Yes there were only two. Everything in there was just a strong suggestion except for two things. Two things where you are not permitted to do this. And that was, you're not permitted to go out either a sit down restaurant. And you're not permitted to go out and sit at a bar. So you have to get your food to go. And my friend told me like he didn't really think about that until he got to the hotel. Yeah, and one of his favorite steak places is within walking distance. and where last year eat that person went there. Four Times friscos. The caddy didn't the caddy didn't remember the name of the the place itself, but said like that He went there four times and you know it was like over a hundred bucks a night. It was like his his treat for the year and now he doesn't know if he's going to go there at all this week. Because of it, so, what do you think is the? Biggest Challenge. that. These guys are going have to deal with and I want to do a prediction..

"World of leading fans and leading media coverage like what's your biggest concern, so I have two concerns with with fans. Really wanted to get to go get to the goal absolutely. My two biggest fears are one with fans and that is. How do you police social distancing? Even if you let eight thousand people in a thousand of them? At least they're gonNA Follow Tiger Woods. And I don't know that there's a way to social distance. It's it. It's a thousand people. How do you? When people want to get up against the ropes to watch tiger PUTT or a tee shot like. The Domes completes can't do it. That's what I mean you can't do. Because you, you let them know we're going to end the lottery. You win that there's a risk inherent risk Here's my thing. Yeah, and then my my other. My other big fear is media access. Media access the players and being able to do like the one thing about doing a zoom call in a scrum, and not having one on one access, and that kind of privacy with the player is. Then it is much easier to make sure that players. CADDIES. Can't. Be As. Forthcoming with information as they normally be, and that is the relationship of trust that you build up. And I agree with you there, but I just think this is just it's a it's a unique. I understand very, Tampa. AIDS temporary. It's easy to say it's temporary, but you know let's just let's just say our society, not the tour. I'm not putting this just on the tour. Yeah, but let's just say that our society doesn't have a great track record of giving those things back I. Agree, but as we look at it now is somehow were in June already. we have three hundred, thirty, three hundred forty million people in the United States. We have just over two million cases of. covid nineteen. Yes, and so it's getting to the point now. where the numbers in the population or Look, it's. I'm not saying it's not a thing. The would tell you that there's two million cases and three hundred fifty million people, three hundred forty million people all even granting that there's probably another eight hundred thousand people out there walking around the DUnno, they have it. I think well of those three hundred and forty million people. How many have been tested like? That's what you have to put the number I get it. The number isn't the total population it's. It's tested has to relative deposit cases. Not, total, not total. That's like hey, man. You may twelve million dollars last year year, but would I take home after I get paid like after I paid all the people that I gotta pay like Andy. Yes I. had a million dollars. They didn't let's talk. Golf I. Trump is happening I. think you know all this other stuff is is a little bit much, but whatever? The Golf, would you integrate field oh? Strongest field discourse has ever seen ever yes. Oh I just I am. I think you're going to see a little bit A. Little bit of rust. Gives a lot of these guys still been able to play down in Florida mcelroy's a Florida guy. He plays down there in Jupiter Justin Thomas kept goes in deejays both KEPCO DJ but planet Floridian. These guys have been able to play golf bought it. It's amazing how good this field is young and I can't wait to see some of these guys back in competitive action, so the one thing everybody better remember. Jon Rahm one after taking six and a half weeks off. Just showed up in one. So. Rust is definitely. Now the beauty of Where they are. Is this is not a hit. Go get it course. No, this a shot makers course. Yeah, man, this is colonial is a it is a monster of a golf. Course would end. It's not long now, not long. It is just Hogan's alley is right out in front of you. That's why guys like Zach. Johnson, and some of these guys who? Knows Kevin, ause. The defending champion you WanNa talk about a guy who's not long at all, but who is deadly accurate with his irons. And then once his putter got hot. It was like this. This is a this is a second shot golf course. Similar to SAWGRASS. Correct similar to Sawgrass, but the rough at this place can be. It can be absolutely brutal brutal, and.

"Having people be able to look at what's going on, and even if it raises red flags, yeah, isn't that for the better? I. Yes I mean it's it's. A yeah, that's. Let me. Give you a yeah, but okay I. Just don't Okay so here. Here's where we are right now in the in the world of sports and I know because I've been hosting sports centers were nothing's been going on for fifty weeks right that we've had little return to sports. INDYCAR came back this time of the first time. NASCAR's been back. UFC's been back for a while. there. There are so many a Bundesliga as of the international soccer league. There's so many different leagues that are out there. That have done the protocol with it. I just don't believe with the sensitivity surrounding this issue that anybody including the PGA would open themselves up to get it wrong, because there's so much emphasis right now. Yes, I, getting it right. Yes, I I totally agree I completely agree, but we saw with the U. of C. one of our former colleagues arosh Markazi was in Las Vegas for that. You have seen fight and was at the fight and covered the fight. That'll it. Again. It is slowly, but surely starting to open to the media so I guess what I'm pushing for is, and this is. This goes kind of mirroring. What Pat Perez was saying? If if we're going to do it, let's do it. If. You know if we're going to I know and this is where it's. That's even hard for me, 'cause I know you know this is where I gotta go I'm I'm with you when it comes to this? Even though I hate having to say that I'm with you when it goes, it is is look if we're GONNA do it. Let's do it the fact that memorial I think it's. It's wild fans right from royal. I Love Ed. What's that well? What's weird though is now. So we're going to be at memorial for two weeks in a row in the first week is going to be no fans because that's GonNa be sponsored by workday right, but they does. The tournament doesn't have an official name, but because John. Deere got cancelled. WORKDAY now is is coming in as the big sponsor of. A tournament, that's going to play at memorial the week before the memorial with no fans, so it actually going to be kind of wild to see. What is the tournament? Look like now at the same exact spot. Here's what it looks like without people and then the next week all right eight thousand people are in. One hundred percent. Sure on how they're doing now. The lottery system right? Were you know the eight thousand people that are in on again? I hate the Johnny Conspiracy Guy you are. You've got a survival kit when it all goes down at your house, but go ahead. Yeah, I do whatever so what I learned a I ain't got no squirrels anymore, so that part words of just saying. Here's the thing let's let's be honest. How many people for how long bought the notion when the PGA Tour said? No, no, the the pairings are computer. It's random a random computer process that we don't have anything to do with and you'd be like. So for ten years randomly tiger and Phil never got paired together like and everyone was like well, yeah. Like come on man. That's yeah so like. I think we have to be very. Cautious, not careful but cautious in the fact that we don't accept that look man sports back shut up. We'll just take whatever you give us like. Let's let's not do that. Okay, 'cause I don't I don't know that that's. For the long term I don't think that's the best plan because. Once you open the box of. Here's your thing. You get to control everything in your box. And they go well. We just WanNa do it for now. Giving up that kind of power and control normally is not done willingly. After the fact so I just I I'm just. Saying let's be cautious. That's. Just cautious of. Cautious of the the denial of access that we give up as members of the media. So that, we can at least have live golf. Okay, so that's that's my. Little bit of fear hesitant like here's a great example this week. This week they're hard members. There are members of the media that are allowed at the tournament this week. Right, but those members of the media will have no access to ask players. So if a guy walks off the eighteenth hole. And I have a mask on, and I'm in. The players are not allowed inside the Rose I have a mask on. I am not allowed to start. Asking that is not allowed inside the ropes right. Media's not allowed inside the ropes, but if I'm outside the ropes. I still am not. There's nowhere on site that I'm allowed to stand six feet away from a player with both of us wearing masks, those of following all the guidelines of social distancing. There's still no place where I can have a one on one conversation with that player. It has to either be done over the phone or through zoom meeting, and there's not gonna be a scrummage. There's going to be one person they're. Like inside inside the bubble. Holding the camera doing zoom and all media has to stay inside the media center tent to do these interviews, which I understand it at first because you don't want to push of media. They're like I. said I just want to exercise caution on. A few weeks from now when it's time kind of let those things start loosening those restrictions. Yeah, do they happen or is it like you know? We found that? This actually works a lot better for WHO. Would it but what is your biggest? What is your biggest worry? My biggest, my biggest.

"Ring teebox dysfunction. And goal. Is Back. Time and thirteen weeks alongside the CADDY's Michael, Collins and the Mattie. This is batting. The cat of the podcast blitz up those who media at marrying catty. Word and see a I eat that it's not instagram and twitter. I have never been more excited to hear. Hello Friends, then I am. Daddy teebox is yours. Get started today. This'll be to one week. Where even though it's not the masters you start that way. Ahead and start with hello friends while or just played a welcome back Carter theme song. Welcome back! You know it's it. Is it feels? Good, but at the same time I think part of the reason. It feels so good is because there's that there is an element of dangerous well so already in talking to one of my caddie. Government informant yeah. What my one of my sources! That's how that's. The media says it has sources unless it's evil than it's an informant One of my sources told me that. On Tuesday. They there was one person that they saw wearing a mask and that the whole social distancing thing. has kind of been thrown out the window as Absolutely predicted by Pat Perez that. If, if one, if you if caddy player if you test negative, I test negative. Why in the world am I gonNA stand six feet away from you. If we're supposed to be getting work done or the flip side of that is from another caddy who said all that social distancing, and like being real careful yet? That's going to be great until Guy Goes bogey-bogey and then has the punch out of the trees and then. Do you really believe a player is going to? To after punching out, and having a big chunk of mud stuck on a front of their club face. Be like all right. Hold on, let me clean this club off and disinfected before I. Give it back to the catty and we listened to now that dude is going to drop a f-bomb. Throw a club and then can't. He's gotta go. He Ain't gonNA leave it there, but I gave him. We need to six well. You better go back and get it because. Remember. I'm not allowed to touch it until you disaffected, so it's still back there on number six. What, are you? What do you think like here's? You know I've said this I've been on champing this the whole time that. If Player and Cattier or both negative. They don't have the virus than fire way. Let's go and honestly will let's let's let's. Let's break this down to its simplest form if Said caddy or player? We're pause. They wouldn't be there anyway. So? Early what's not like? This early because the initial tests that they took. Though saliva test, yeah, is eighty percent accurate. So that means twenty percent of the time. You Get A. You can get a false negative if even if you do now. What this? What? What? Both of the people that I've spoken to that are are now on site has said is the nasal swab tests that they get one? They arrived. That test is administered and the results are given anywhere between four twenty four hours right. The caveat is what as soon as you get that test done at. It's a site that is not at the golf course, but when you get that test done, you're given a pink slip meaning that you have taken the test, and that gives you access to everything at the golf course. Accept any activities indoors. So you literally! In theory in. I'm trying to be sunshine and rainbows but I also. It's my duty to give everyone the truth in theory they. You're just kicking people off by lightly I know, but you gotTA. have at least you gotTa. Know what the truth is, and let's hear the truth is you could get that swab test of your nasal cavity, or as they like to say. Get your brain touched. You could go to the course practice. Be around other people. You're not going inside, but. Then you could. Potentially have a positive test, and then you have to leave, but you've already exposed other people to see I disagree. Slightly, okay, I the premise I agree with. Yes, but I think there's going to be so many social distancing measures. Put in place that let's just say on the off chance. Someone got the test. They don't know their positive yet. They are around other people I think the social distancing measures will be that to avoid a potential pitfall like that in theory, you are absolutely correct, but as I said my sources and informant. Hey, had informants have? You're saying that that's already been thrown out the window. When out the window nobody down here is wear masks. Social distancing is not happening is, do you? Do you not find it odd that we as we record this on Tuesday. Have, you seen any social media post I've seen one from Damon Green caddy for. Used to caddy for Zach Johnson I. Forget off the top of my head. At the moment I'm sorry I forget it Damon my bed, but. The only social posts that I've seen so far is Damon Green took a picture of the testing area, not the golf course. So I have not seen any pictures or any video like I'm watching the golf channel right now. There's no they're doing morning drive and it's four people in four boxes at their houses. You would think the tournament starts this week. There would be a normal tournament. After ninety one days of no golf. There would be cameras everywhere like we need to show. Let's show people what is going on. Would, who's not allowed? John ABC got the right. No Man when they sheet is out of the rights, CBS has the rights. Yes, put Golf Channel Gulp channels, also a rights holder, and they have pre-tournament coverage, so they do live that all the time now. Yeah all the time in a normal world. There are so many different areas of how media is covering this thing, which is segue to this when CBS announced yesterday. That Jim Nance will be by himself in his own tower the production truck from what I read is GonNa be cut down. Forgive me if I'm wrong on this number, but I think it's eight people in a production truck. Typically twenty two that I know so. My point being is that yes, on a normal tournament week there'd be cameras and Gary. Williams would be out there whether this little fabric director folding chairs driving range, and they'd be all doing all of this coverage, but. That here, not now so every bit of how this tournaments cupboard from Monday until Sunday is different prime example here. The SPN were sending Todd Archer. To do coverage of colonial because your lives now cal your home, yes, yes, W so writer! Yeah, I don't I. Don't buy for a second The notion that there's I don't I'm not going to put words in your mouth, but not a cover up, but there's no I. Don't I, don't I don't want to be Johnny. Conspiracy Theory I don't Wanna I don't WanNa come across as that way, but also as a member of the media understand how. It is to be in a situation like this and say sunshine and rainbows. That's we are now also in a time where. Trans Transparency. Is Much better than non transparency..

"The floor. That would be a target like a quarter right. The smaller the target the smaller right the so cut to a quarter doing that. Maybe what you do is even if you have tile floors linoleum Noli enforce get a ruler hot on the ruler. So now what you're doing is working on. Start Line and remember these drills. They're not they're not going to be where you're sitting there working three hours a day on your game because putting on a rule is gonNA GET ABOARD REAL FAST. It suffer you doing things five minutes day five minutes on this five minutes on net ten minutes on this three minutes on that every day. Your game's be like firing also knew when we finally get back to the course absolutely so putting Matt what else ruler. Putty Matt Quarter. That's a twenty five cent driller. What else they need you. Yeah exactly you don't need to go out and buy like massive targets or something you know what you can use his use paper plates right so paper plates and if you're outside and your backyard waits upside down or if you want but the paper plates right side up couple stones or some dirt in there. Now you've got yourself your target. So the Balkan land in their life with one of my groups is cleaning out the garage and I found old. Partisan hands took them right out in the backyard so that all lands on it extra. That's pretty cool. Don't eat anything more if you're talking about full swings if you can get if you have net. That's very good. Another thing you can do and I think you know credit. A lot of people have seen these videos on instagram where people are hanging towels or blankets carpets from laundry. Lot a fly that hanging over like maybe the yard fence or something hitting into it anything like that I mean that's that's that's a really good. I'm not talking about like you know people at that are hurting for money. I've seen tore players doing this. Where they're putting carpets over nets in hidden. I'm like hey that guy's doing why can't why can't we use our good friend? Combi cows. He was doing it in his backyard. Post baby delivery so the I think I mean that's I mean that's a great starting point for a lot of players. I think I think with what has really impressed me. Washing you. Online is the amount of creativity that one the situation has forced your hand to produce but to that you have been able to produce for your clients. Are you said just pulling out pots and pans in shipping in pots and pans? And you know just having that ability to be abstract in the thought of like I'm not GonNa let us put me down. I'm on find a way to still improve my kids better. I think that's basically lots of mentality that kids need to have anyways. When they're playing as at the cars can be dealt against you. You know I. It's Hi. How are we going to be able to get back to a good situation? So you'll outside of not being able to see and get in front of a player. What has been like one of the bigger challenges that you've that you've had to deal with. I guess it'd be as far as learning this teaching. How has it differed? I think how you communicate is is really important One of the things that this was something that a lot of instructors experienced instructors had been telling some of the younger teachers about four hand is that don't overflow with verbal diarrhea. Don't don't overload the lesson with with verbiage and everything like that. Don't how much smart you are. I don't know how that works in this format because one of the things I noticed this. If you just stand there and you're watching your student on the IPAD and you're not saying they turn around. They think there's some wrong with the connection. They think there is some wrong with wildfire. Whatever so what starts to happen is is. You have to be a little bit more verbal with what you're telling them to do but at the same time what you're doing is you're learning how to really streamline your deliver so so what happens is that you you gotta be really direct in and. I know like one of the first few lessons the first couple of lessons that I was getting. I was getting very aggravated myself because I try to communicate what I wanted even clearly. It wasn't working and what would happen is I was showing it on the video feed. I'd be like I caught myself doing that in what I told the student was. It's not union because they were thinking that I'm getting mad at right and I was saying that it's not you on mad at myself because I should be better at this than I am. It's kind of telling me that I was taking it for granted hours to indicate things and so I took that as a big lesson for myself is really delivering much cleaner thing much cleaner verbiage. In terms of what I want students do yeah. I think that's you know that's probably the hardest. Part is like since we can't you know grabbed the golf club or move a body part in the expressing it and showing. It almost isn't always enough for this doesn't how you learn some people just the feel it you know they have that that's more. They're learning processes. I feel not by being shown taught you know. I mean in so the the the demonstration gave. I think that was interesting that you carry yourself making faces on the camera. You know that. That's that's kind of overlooked. You Know How. Many Times you've been on the phone versus a facetime make all those silly faces on the phone and you're kind of having to watch that 'cause it's different is this is new. It's interesting in that what I do also is is some of the faces that I'm making are some of the places that I would make. If we were standing there face to face and.

"Well you know if they had a charitable component where everybody agreed to give ten percent of their earnings to charity and all the tournament proceeds went to it. You know I think people could get behind that and the side though is a lot of these. Local communities have charities that count on the on this This money every year. You know they've gotten used to it they they. They're the beneficiary the tournaments a big part of their budget. What about them? So there are so many things for them to work through. And we're looking. We're just talking about one little piece of our world. The golf world It's a it's a monumental thing that that they all face right now. Why did everyone really believed that? That Tiger Phil thing was going to happen. Well here's the thing I think fill it Grew legs because Phil responded to distant. Innocuous twitter user about having a match with tiger with one camera and everybody would watch and you know. Wouldn't that be great and still just responded with two words working on? Excuse me three. Words are looking on. And he was spotted. Somebody said you're not kidding. Me Beza wouldn't kit and so phil but Phil I don't think was talking about the same thing because there had been rumblings before the world was shut down about another Tiger Phil thing like in Vegas in two thousand eighteen and this one would have partners and what had been in. The discussion stages was brady manning being part of it. Well as soon as this whole thing came up those discussions got put on hold. You know they. They weren't going to go through. They weren't going to go forward with that because first of all it's a bad luck etc what were you gonNA play. It's and the original concept was to not be a big charitable saying it was you know fill entire. We'RE GONNA make out this deal like that's how these things work and the PGA tour was gonNA make out in. That was gonna be a great major. Tv thing will then when this all came up. The you know the the goalposts shift shifted. Now you're talking about doing it for charity. We'll still for that to happen. You've gotTa have the the Clearance Phil. Listen Californian tireless in Florida. People have to travel there has to be people put it on TV. And you're not GonNa do it with one camera door. Has the sign off on it right? They and people are making the tour to be the bad guys. They're not they they will sign off. If it's if it's doable right you don't WanNA stand in the way of it but Scott to work. It's got to work for them. It's gotTa work. It's gotta obviously work in the medical sense of it and it's got to work for the players and and we just don't know when that could happen to have it like like right now or next week or two weeks or the end April when the whole world is shutdown. I just don't think that works now. You know oh well. It's just them and they could each beyond their own car. You can have a couple of camera guys. I think it's way more complicated than that. Well it is. It's very complicated and to put it on TV. Yeah you'RE GONNA want it to look good. You'RE NOT GONNA want to have one camera. Golf is covered with one camera to think of all the people out there to make that work just for two guys you know and so then what you know. They're going to try to enter. You know you'd have to interview. Mike Them I mean there's people human beings involved with that That I don't think we're at that point yet or something like that could happen. I completely agree. And if it's going to be partners after the way that the last one went down the two partners that I don't need with Tiger Phil would be Peyton and Tom Brady although Payton yes because pain will talk smack. I I don't I know Payton's not afraid to talk a little smack but Tom Brady. I think is preparing to come down to your neck of the woods so you have kind of kid. He's not GonNa be in all right so as we wrap this up. Then let's just let's just say. Do you believe that we will be playing golf? The week of June fifteenth to the twenty first when the US Open was supposed to take place in all honesty. Mike no me neither man. I'm glad you said that. I just think it's too soon and I mean listen. I would love to be wrong about that. I'm hoping you know most of most of the states have this stayed home order through April right so on April Thirtieth. If we all wake up in the numbers have decreased greatly in the experts. Say that it's safe on June fifteenth. We're going to need another month. June fifteenth will be good great. But I mean it just seems like we're a little ways away from that I mean. I think the middle of July is probably more realistic and and frankly look with the schedule that they've put together. You know the amount of events the majors in every saying if they could even get back on August I I think doing cartwheels. And we'd be ecstatic because there'd be a lot of big events in August September October the masters in November know and then boom right back into it again in January can have another masters in April You know it would be A. I think it's worth being patient for that and As opposed to rushing it running into issues and look if they have a master's in November. Imagine how cool it will be just the scenery and just how the golf course to play. And we're going to be talking about all the differences and and all the you know the intricacies of Augusta national a different time year. It'll be fascinating saying what the US Open and close. There's a winner course. That's the thing a IT'S A. It's a golf club. That is winter only anyway so it might look more lush than we've ever seen it before. I love the way that she said how. Cool 'cause middle November is not probably going to be in the seventies or eighties but maybe it will be and it's a gust the national so it might be the only place in the world that can get live azaleas in November. They'll find a way. I don't know if they can do that. But you're gonNA have the you know the the leaves turning colors and you're gonNa have the you know as you said they're a winner. They're a winner club. They overseas with Ryan September of the time to members. Come back in October. That places green not might not be as green as this week but it's green so you give it another month into November and with the ability. They have to water. They've got those sub air systems. They can heat and cool under the Greens. Not worrying about a hard freeze like the. There's no winner hasn't happened right. Worry about it's only through the summer like it's the naked. Take care of then. It's quite possible to look the the actual course itself a look exactly like doesn't April maybe it's a tad thinner is the Ri- Hasn't come in fully in the Bermuda is still prevalent. But so what would that be cool? They have to adapt to it. It's just like from year to year anytime. A course might change due to weather and you know wing foot in September is going to be a lot different than wings June drill you know so it and I think that these are the things that you need to sort of embrace like okay. It's not gonNA be normally is. This'll be Kinda cool so be fun and frankly good problems to have. Yeah that's exactly. That's the whole point man. The point is our. We're playing golf and if that is happening when all of this is going on we can figure it out but the fact that would be playing golf will be fantastic so man. Thanks for jumping on with emergency podcast. I'm super surprised at how this all of this news came out at one time and it was just a great text message from you going. Hey man you want to chat about this hell. Yeah want to chat about this. We get this out there and let people know so. Hopefully this helps educate people just a little bit on everything that's going on and while the decisions were made the way that they were made this has been a special edition Mattie and the caddy featuring Bob Newhart Bob.

"But they said that everybody who qualified so this year's tournament will be allowed to play next year as long as they remain in Amazon. Okay so what is it. Seventy two players in the seal. What sixty five of them say. They're coming back to now. There's only seven spots for new players but I mean that's almost the way you have to look at it you have to. You have to sort of let the ones who were already in back in again and then you have to figure out some other way to accommodate the new qualifiers in in terms of the tour you know for for next year. They might have to try to increase fields. I think they deserve well suited to have more opposite events. Which I think we're GONNA see this fall but you know we don't have an opposite event against the players we don't have an opposite event against the US Open in the master's there used to be. We'll have you know. There's there's one against the open and there's one against a couple of the WGC's but surely they can find some people. Hopefully that would be willing to to put those events on for far less sponsorship fee and give guys an opportunity and if they were saying eight of those next season with a shortened schedule. Isn't that better than than than not? Yeah I just think you know obviously smarter. People are sitting there putting their heads together. Thinking of all these things and it might be one of the reasons why we don't know at this point and why some of those events weren't Hashed out like the majors were today. And that's what yeah and it's the whole it there. There is a feeling a little bit behind this. That feels like let's just get this out there and we'll figure everything else out just a little bit but I gotTa say you know the thing that surprised me. The most when everything came out was that not only did the master say. It's it's happening in November but they also said patrons come on if you gotta take it bring it which. I never thought that they would make an announcement like that. Even this early you know. I think I think they're doing that. Basically to say if we can't have spectators at that point we're not gonNA play you know and that you think that that's what that's would you think if it comes down to it and the decision is to play without patrons or not play at all you think that they would rather not play at all. It's just a guess but I do. I think that's I think. And and frankly it's it's because if it's determined that it's not safe with spectators. How is it still safe? You can social distance inside the ropes. Yes you can but much more difficult to practice social distancing when everyone wants to be around the ninth in the Eighteenth Green. I get that but by the same token if you if it's deemed not safe to travel yet if it's deemed not safe to have big cluster. The people you still have to have a lot of TV production people. They're not doing it without TV. Yeah I'm still going to have to have some volunteers you know. You've gotTa have you know you've probably got to have some place for them to eat so. I mean so I guess what I'm trying to say is. They need to be clear for everyone. I think for these things to happen. Now here's the other side where I could see no spectators if they can get to the point where you are testing everyone and all the players academies and officials and scores and rules officials media and you know Augusta national members can be tested or for the US Open as well as the PGA then. Obviously that's a much smaller group to test than than twenty thousand people a day. Then maybe that makes sense to have no chance you know. I'm also wondering. Is there a point? We get to where you could test all the spectators. I know that sounds ridiculous Ryan but if there is a test that takes two minutes or five minutes and you go through the turnstiles and you get tested and they say. Yay or Nay. Obviously that's GonNa be monumental Deal to pull off but if that is what it takes to restore confidence for these things. Great I don't know if we're going to be able to get to that point you hear these stories about you know these quick tests you know. Maybe in a couple of months time we'll have thousands upon thousands of those and a place could could find a way to do it. You'd have to do it out in the parking lot or something And and you turn away. People who test positive surprised they were doing this with two. I mean with the masters the Masters I can understand but it is very surreal. I guess is the best word that I can use in that. Two of these major championships are going to be played at what would be considered Epicenters of where the virus was starting. You know or where big numbers started breaking out so clearly jampy ship in harding park and then especially the US Open now at wing foot in in New York. The only thing I can say there is. They've just got their fingers crossed and are hoping for a miracle you know. That's what it is that in New York. They're hoping that Three months extra. Time is the trick for that and for an San Francisco It's only really what Two and a HALF MONTHS. I guess I am and I think we're GONNA know you know at a certain point if it's realistic even But as I've been saying like there was some pushback on announcing this today. You know this a tough spot right now with this. You know we're at a very were still at a very very dangerous position. And there's a lot of a lot of doom and gloom at this moment. Maybe they could awaited a week or two to announce this but I understand why they wanted to get this done whether they announce it or not. And that is if you're going to do it. You have to be able to plan for right hand and so you gotta get the event out there in situated because there's so many things that have to go into this that that you can't do otherwise because you know you gotTa have hotel rooms. You GotTa get volunteers line dog. If you've got to have you know you you've got you've got to be able to plan for this. And and if if they're not able to to know a date out in the future are you. GonNa do that. You can't sit there and go. Let's wait two months and see if it see if it's ready to go and then okay. We got the all clear. Now we're now we're gonNA plan the masters you know. I mean if you live not far from it went out and saw what innisbrook what where they play in Tampa where where they play. Davao spar you went out and saw the stand up. Everything was ready to go and then they had to tear everything down so that doesn't happen over a week or no. It's laments of work. Yeah the tournament together like that. And on the flip. Side of that though is if we're playing without spectators you don't need any of that that's a good point in or or if you are you if again. I just not sure like where we're GONNA be with this. 'cause I'm sort of like if you if it's not safe enough to have spectators house it's safe enough to have antibody okay but but if you go with the theory that like as you said Hey. They can socially distance inside the ropes. Although I'm still wondering how does player hand his golf club back to the CADDY caddy's doesn't touch the club. So here's how you do it and as this is an your academy too so when I tell you this you'll be like okay. The only thing that he does carry the bag. The player has to clean the clubs. The player has to clean the golf ball. The only this is the one time where the the caddy sole job is to carry the bag and put the set the bag down and then the caddy can walk his own yardage the catechin still read the Greens. All of that stuff can still be there and the cat. He's standing on one side of the bag. You know in distancing can still talk to the player about the shot and give advice but the caddy won't be able to handle the clubs that could save. That's a good point fair point. I would say though if you tested everybody before the all the players and caddies and officials then that doesn't become an issue if they're clear right or you would also but but you know that is. These are the things that you have to you. Did they have to sort through? To the point about no no spectators or no stands. Well what if you allowed spectators in but you had no luxury suites in no grandstand? So they're not crowded next to each other now. You're still going to have social distancing issues at restrooms around the eighteenth green that kind of stuff ingredients. It'd be a pride. Would it be dissipated enough to where it's safer in other words if we got back to thing we're groups of thirty or forty or fifty a you know which is remember one that long ago? That was the recommendation right group. You're less Groups more than fifty. You know so again. I don't know but I just think that's one of the reasons that they've they've put the schedule out. Now they're like okay now. We know how we're going to do it if we do it. Let's work towards trying to do it if we're able to he the only other thing about not having corporate boxes is as you said that is also a way that tournament's generate money for charities and it's not of course that's their bottom line all these tournaments. Their bottom line is basically You know they`re. They're not getting the purse money. They're not getting the TV money. They raised through sponsorships ticket sales You know refresh concessions merchandise that stuff. That's how they make their money. They pay their bills. They give the rest of charity. You know that leads me to another point you know should golf try to do some sort of big charity event? That is is earmarked for Corona virus relief. You know and I. I think this this notion of the Tiger Phil stuff. That's been circulating. There's been some thought about that. Maybe filling that void but could there be an event one of these events or more than one that you know that You know that sort of earmarks. It's it's charitable efforts towards that you know you to your point about you know. Is it a bad? Look for these guys that he planned for eight million dollar.

"Is Patrick read kind of as villain? Arroyo he doesn't necessarily want but will he'll take it. If if that's where it's gotta be and Brooks kept go who is going in that direction. Going in the guy like don't embrace me. I'm not your friend. I'm here. You know he reminds me a lot of my and I wasn't around for this but it it. It reminds me of the way people talk about this person. The way that people talk about Brooks Kepco remind me of how people talked about Bob Gibson and you know who we were around Reggie Jackson yet. Yes yes at least one. Reggie one reggie was with on the podcast. He opened up about why he felt the need to be the way that he was. Yup which was completely different from. Why Brooks would be this way and Brooks talks about why he is the way he is and it that way. It's more Gibson esque in that. He I don't want to be friends with the guys. I'm trying to beat. Which is what tiger used to be but now has flip the script and shown I can beat these guys friends and beat him and it feels even better coming off a green when they're all standing there wanting to hug me so let let me run this out at you. Because you're making good points is as we kind of look at where golf is in trying to get some of the attention whether you're talking about the condense schedule and players missing out yesterday on. Espn we didn't all access during an exhibition game with the Chicago cubs and we had players miked up during the game with IFP etc in. It is the most fascinating thing that I've seen on television in quite some time because the players were talking to their at bat result was. I haven't seen a fast fast balls coming right. And then he hid it and then he's round the basic going for two. No I'm not I'm not. It was so fascinating and what I'm getting at. Is I think golf because what are we both agree on golf and baseball? Are the two old white guys sports if golf would embrace something like that? Biking up seven player caddies throughout around. Not See that's exactly my problem. Why why is your default can't do it? Why can't do it because number one? You would have to have a a much longer delay because of the language you only need a couple of second. Yeah so why? Why can't you do it? Why are you going to be because the old white guy? I'm not being the old white guy at look. Dude you're purchasing choir. I am one hundred and fifty percent for it. I think it's exactly what golf needs. I think it would be fantastic. Do I think the problem with doing that is yes there are? It's time if a golf round takes five and a half hours. Some of the things that talked about between players and caddies can't and shouldn't be made public. There's a producer in the truck. I understand that but the problem is catching nets stuff. What happens what happens when something like that goes out on now. It looked where in baseball you can sit there and talk to baseball players during the game about the game and about. Oh this guy has these tendencies and did you see what this Guy Dave of this net golf is not like that golf is there are. We'll ask this question for Horsham. Yeah Yeah because it would be interesting. I would be interested to know what I think would be. What what would be fascinating would be some of the conversations between players walking off tea boxes or walking. Yeah walking off tea. Boxes IS THE BEST ONE. Because that's when all three players are normally together or players and caddies. That's when you have some of the best. Conversations is walking off tea boxes on par fours and fives. Because you know you're going to probably be waiting on the group that's on the green when you get to your golf ball you know when you get there you'll get your number and go through your process so this time we're guys talked to one another. I don't know how comfortable golfers would be. I can tell you right now. I don't even have to say I don't know I can tell you for sure. Golfers would not be comfortable with some of the conversations that happen even and I'm not talking about talking about you know the other sex. I'm not talking about any of that. I'm just talking about Phil would not be comfortable if his conversation with Jordan. Speak about the tax stuff that he's going through moving from. California to Florida and I don't know that guys would be comfortable allowing people that kind of access and I don't know in those conversations happen in tournament. Oh a live. That's what you're telling me is. He'll tell them. Phil speed tied for the lead the tournament. They're talking about tax problems if they're tied for the lead at tournament. They're probably not talking a whole lot on a Sunday when they're talking to their catty and that I think that'd be interesting for your point being is this. You and I love the Sport Golf Nerd so I will sit and watch three rounds of the Honda Classic Me To Jeff and Jim in Nebraska may not. But what's going to get Jeff Jim to watch if they hear about this? I'm telling you have baseball. Did this in the regular season. I believe the ratings would skyrocket and they would do well for the sport. There just needs to be away in this era of. We're getting close to post tiger again. Where Golf needs to find a way to bring the sport and make it more engaging for everyone because I believe it's a good enough game that can appeal to a larger mass than it already is. Two things one. I don't know that baseball would do it. In the regular season two because they play one hundred sixty two games and the biggest cheating scandal in the history of the sport. I would come up with something quick. I would come up with something to but that ain't it and even though I think that I I agree with you. I agree with you that that would be awesome and number two when it comes to golf. Set this up for a practice round. And let's Mike Up Players and caddies for a practice round when they are gambling. And see the real talking that goes on in folsom one of the one of the greatest rounds that I have ever seen or actually been a part of just been out there. Walking around was when the course was closed at liberty national last year and it was brooks kept Dustin Johnson Tiger Woods and Harrow Varner the third and they had a game and the talk between the four them was an absolute screen. It was an absolute screen. The unfortunate thing is if you put microphones on all of them and send them out to play that match again. None of those conversations happen and that's partly the golfers fault because they are way too protective of their quote unquote brand and they don't want to say or do anything especially in today's Society because we also know how this works in today's society how easy it is to take something that someone says and make it offensive and then here comes the mob but see. Here's what I'm with you but I don't even think that we need that type of conversation for it to be compelling television. I think did he just Mike Up Player in caddy during a practice round. When they're getting yardage is a walk in the course. What's my shot here? Where do you WanNa hit it here? Why is this the ideal situation? I think that in and of itself. I don't need to hear about when they were juniors and colleges and what he thought and how he met his wife. I don't need any of that while it'd be fun to listen to. Oh I think that's really getting to know the players but I think I think just a golf talk like just hearing some guy maybe talking about man. This hill sucks. I don't like this whole I don't like I mean just stuff like that. I think would be say that. But what's the biggest complaint people have about golf? When it's out there microphones around like people get mad at Jordan speeds and Michael Gretler when they are going back and forth talking about what they're gonNa do and that's at the shot like I'd love it. Listen I am one hundred percent behind it too but we also have seen the repercussions of when that happens and how people make it out to be something. It's not looking what happened. Look it Bubba Watson and Ted Scott. You see the go-between from them and then you see kind of the reaction stuff from them and then it's like we Gotta. Save Ted Scott Right that just cracked me up or can you believe how Jordan speaks to Michael. Why would he put up with something like that? And how they're Jordan blame Michael Weller. And that's the dynamic that I think people ins- you and I who are around the game enough at this level understand what that talk truly is but people on the outside looking in initially and always get it wrong and there's no way to get it right. Did you see speaking of getting it right here? We'll who Paul easier. What happened what he said about. Tommy fleetwood about the European tour so that this was during the Honda on the final day. Tommy Fleetwood try to win and Paul is talking about him and and basically said about Lee Westwood to in twitter lit up and lit up on him. Really you're talking to. He talked about how you know. It's okay to be right but there's a right way to be right thick and he basically said that Tommy fleetwood in is wins on the European tour and Lee Westwood and his wins on the European tour are nice almost like they're cute but they don't stack up to win it onto Peter. I had quote. He says these guys. Now you all you want the European tour the international game and all that you have to one of the PGA tour. They all know that. And I think Tommy knows that and has put a little pressure on Tommy but this is why they wanna be. They want to come here and prove they can make it at this level. What's wrong with that? Let it it all and then Lee. Westwood responded Paul Walks down the range wishing you good luck before you play the next east condescending. The tour you play on and disrespects the tournament you've won tournament you've went around the world. I've won in nineteen different countries over four decades disrespect in a lot of people not saying just saying now. It's easy for Paul to do. Because he's a winning Ryder Cup captain. But but you you Kinda know bit me to do. Let me do my. Let me do my analyze that low. Bit Low bit disrespectful. Low Bit you don't you don't have to come across as belittling the European tour that quote was belittling at all. I think it demeans. What winning on the European tour me these guys know you can all you want on the European tour the international game and all of that. But you have to win on the PGA tour the international game and all of that. You can win as much as you want on the European tour. Is He wrong? It don't matter on? Why do they all want to come over and plan the PGA tour because of the money but the competitions probably top to bottom better because of the money the just because of money? Yes.

"Week before the start to the masters so a couple of minutes are going to be moved around so once again. We're going to have a changing schedule and tournament schedule. It's it though I tell you the truth it would be the ideal situation would be when we finished in August. There was no more golf. Well so son said that. Which which half of this podcast caddies Eddie. All here we first of all here we go. He thinks the players hate the new schedule. He hates new schedule and he says that there should eat it. Yes you do you've bitched about it. The inception of the new schedule and he hates he hates. That is the goal. Should be done. The second football season starts. Yeah you know I agree and I think the majority of top players and I can't speak to all the players. I know all the players don't feel this way but if you said. Hey we're gonNA play from beginning January all the way through August and that's GonNa be maybe mid September and be done then that define the fall events are great events and I play in the fall and they're unbelievable events but I think for a top guys in the tour wants us to play as much as possible and support the PGA tour support these events. But it comes at a cost and we're very fortunate now that we make a lot of money. We are very fortunate that and so we don't need to play a ton and now that a lot of us are sort of getting that age and listen. I'm not putting myself in the top tier of guys. I'm probably the next tier of top players. But we're having families and we wanted to spend more time with our kids and and it just becoming tougher. We get to make that schedule and we can do that but the problem is is that a lot of what a lot of the other top players have said you know. I don't play much in the fall and I started in January and I'm so far behind him points that in it and if they play well they're going to be fine but it's just like man if. I have it a couple of weeks like here's a perfect example. Justin Rosenberg's Kepco. They haven't played a lot this year and they're both two hundred in the facts points now. What happens if if they don't play well that they've played get their game together which they will but what happened just played well but they don't have the years they've had in the past. They're not GonNa make that Tour Championship. Which is not how this will make the BMW because it cuts the seventy now. So there's a lot of different factors and that's not what the tour wants. They want to top players in there. Because that's what drives the money and I hope all my tour of players understand when I say this. We all help the tour in sponsors. We all are contribute to all this mind. That would be able to to play for the day when you got the. Let's be real. It's a top guys. There's about thirty. Maybe thirty or forty guys that really pushed a barometer of top guys. There's still some other guys. Bonus still push barometer of of the the pay help out with the numbers and TV ratings and everything and everyone else sort of. Is it really doing much? He's really great stories to have those players when they win and opportunities opportunities are great. I agree with you but if you want to you know that's why I think it's GonNa be interesting what happens going forward with how the PGA tour is going to change and evolve over the next couple of years because I think this this premier awfully PG L. is as an interesting thing but. I don't think it's viable thing in my opinion You know they're asking you to play eighteen guarantee eighteen events and then you add four majors in twenty two events. So you're GONNA play twenty two events a year and I think it's an sort of condense window of eight or nine months in all you're playing like eleven events lasts fifteen weeks they want you to play. And that's not gonNA happen very well so but I think the tour is gonNA evolve. There's GONNA be some changes. Do I know what those changes are? No have a habit. I have an idea of what I think the changes should be. But you know. I'm not the commissioner what was what was your body like when you play those nine out of ten weeks. What did you learn? My Body holds up pretty well. It's just a mental side it's a grind it becomes. It's easy if you're playing well because you can have your gains good shape than you can take some days off but if you're if you're struggling with your game you have to have the grind out you know. I have to go spend hours on the range work on you swing or hours on the putting green trying to figure out it's a grind and that's the that's the mental grind the physical grind. You can recover quickly take a day or two off here and there but I was. I've I've I've done some long runs but now that I'm I'm still fairly young but you know being thirty three last shows thirty two it does wear on your little bit and so I was pretty much shot at Zurich. Classic Lashio allergist exhausted just done and I was just mentally and I was happy to have two weeks off after. Where do you allow yourself more time to watch Netflix? Tv On the road. Or when you're back into Florida swain just Kinda hang out. I watched a ton of that anytime. Oh tell me a must see show. Oh man shoot. Well I mean I watch about ice crazy. I probably keep up. Close to thirty shows on your Netflix. My less licks Showtime all those narcos. I did I just finished. Second season. Narcos Mexico in Mexico. I go in Mexico so that was really good when I was over in an where was I did. I do in Asia.

"Don't worry about the ten year development model because if you don't get the if you don't get this piece right forget about ten years from now you might not get them tomorrow right and you might not get the next week. Keep them in the game you. You're an actor there right. Keep them in the game and so that you know that sorry. That's maybe more than two minutes. But that's discovered discovered off. No that's great. I mean I think Ma'am I. It's the story. Portion of it is where I think. It's the common theme that I see with a lot of these programs like yourself that I wish more coaches could see right because it goes to the point of getting away from Matt Linear Topography of how developed a player but that storyline keeps the kids engaged right and and it keeps them chasing down that rabbit hole of like Of engagement in the end go becomes more than just get the ball in the hole right in the end of the day for a kid putting a ball in a hole. That's let's you know two times. The size of the golf ball in can be entirely frustrating. But if you put it in a frame that allows them to have fun like you were saying with like fruit. Pursuit will then. Yeah that's awesome. That's what you need right. And so I think that's what's really really cool about the program. And I think the education stuff that you're providing the coaches this is your hitting the nail on the head like I know our personally went through the PJ program at Mississippi State and had an absolutely awesome education. But we never really talked about stuff like this like we didn't talk about The the minutia of how kids monitoring or how people learn how to to create a program Graham white this but again. This was over a decade ago when I was in these Classes so I don't know if that was really at the forefront of law people's minds right I mean I think there are still some Ancient history being taught like I actually had to answer some questions wrong in the teaching manual both to pass my teaching portion of the test. You know so but now the curriculums are a lot lot better. The coaches are going back like I just went back and talk to the program last month. The guys are going back and giving back through programs. Rams are taking like information you're giving and now spreading it to these. PJ schools so that future pros have this knowledge. Nothing that's what is going to help this game. Continue to grow because we're one of the few sports that is growing in the junior golf world and you are one hundred percent and I'll go ahead now. Most thirteen year olds is that as the window and kids are quitting other sports because they're realizing that good enough to play it or it's too serious or or they're not built the right way to play basketball or whatever And this is how golf can fill that void. I I fundamentally You know through through study quite frankly so I feel like I've sort of earned this perspective I do not. Ah Golf to me. And it's Conventions right I am not behold into those right I strip away. Hey all You know the etiquette and the norms Around golf in expose. I think its shortcomings because quite frankly if you're a twenty three year old who's coming up right now and you are and you keep yourself hold right to what gall is is supposed to be the guys on the road at top Golfer saying hey good luck with that fella because what they what they have realized and what's so many are realizing is that you have a human being right. WHO's outside outside in a bone rule position right? Who who needs to have this event socially relatable to others right talking about the backbone of why people are motivated to do things and so fundamentally how can can you create an experience with a curve? Stick in a ball right. That is not beholden to necessarily what golf is supposed to be because let's be honest. The design of golf is not good. And like I'm sorry to rattle you know ruffle feathers but that statement but but I think the smartest people in the industry and the people that are unapologetic about bringing droves of people to them again top golfers saying there was a sticking a ball. Paul and you're in a highly social environment right in the in the feedback is omnipresent. You're always you know you always know where you stand. Relative to goal or to others is lightweight as casual. There's not all these obstacles to entry right so this gets back to the success abilities point like we have five hundred kids in our program. Do you think like if I ask all five hundred if I said hey is golf by itself good enough and say what are you talking about like if they just showed up and it was a baron putting green and it was a barren driving range and it was was just golf. I'd have fifty kids right. So here's here's the big problem like all of these programs with like the checkpoints. That's great for the kids that just love this already. You know what I mean for me. You don't need you don't need somebody to tell tell you how to run those kids. Because they'll they'll just five footers until they're you know tiller hand bleed like I used to because for whatever reason they're obsessed with But they're one percent five percent most. What are you doing with the other ninety five percent right that that are playing xbox and that I think like are you kidding me man I gotta go outside? I gotTA swing monkey wrench around and I gotTa do what. Oh by the way. I'm going to be tested like on the thing that I worry thinking lame. I don't get me started. I'll get worked up. Well I think but I think I think you have a very interesting graph on your website that I'm glad you're just used teed up perfectly for me to hit a big Phil Mickelson calf bomb here That that play versus Grind Graph Raff. We talked about the motivation to play the game. And and how you have to create a play feature to those that are not motivated and then as they become self motivated to to become better as y'all can become more of a grind basis so to your point about the driving range thing right you you get a high school kid that wants to play college. Golf doesn't need necessarily the Games on the putting green to want to get better. We give us right. Yeah so I I. Thoroughly enjoy loyd graph. I think it's awesome if I was sharing that thing everyday across every social media platform because at this kind of speaks to every junior coach that that literally the name of our coaching kit. It's the play grind and just really quickly. It's our philosophy around you know sort of well-known research around deliberate flavors deliver practice right. So you're going going every golf pro again the twenty-three-year-old let's use this guy again right he's going to a TPI level one. Just because I got noth- wrote CPI but right right right in your hand if you've been to a guy okay ninety nine percent okay. And he's getting the Jong coattail research around. Hey from seven to eleven eleven year in high deliver. Play low deliver practice right. Because if you don't then you're over specializing you got psychological burnout and everyone's like Yep I totally agree and John McCain and others are saying okay like twelve years old. You're starting to whittle down. You know not as many sports and now it's time to introduce traduced deliberate practice right so everyone's like okay. Ten thousand hour rule. Let's do and that that's cool and that's appropriate but but here is the opportunity for every single one of those. TPI Level one attendees learn. What play is? Don't stop at Djonko tasting you deliberate play. Oh and I'm here to tell you right. You know tossing balls around uh-huh and running around and doing athlete first initiatives right. We all look at that. It's like oh they're playing. Okay yeah that's one kind kind of play. There is a way way richer possibility space around play right. That's more golf specific. That's one part hard physical one part psychological right that evokes all kinds of different emotions. Like if you understand how play working. How Games work and you can deploy Quoi that you got the big problem in your market and it's not even close? I mean yeah I think the maybe the overlying problem there is like when we say the word play most people. I don't know how to play a lot of fun. It's like that person at the party is like I'm a good time right but then you're like wait. I'm not really a get time because all kids just you know hitting water balloons and you know swinging at you know Golf Zillah and and you know yelling and music and that's cool but that's like you know again that's that's just high novelty surface level. Play that like okay. We already did the water thing. What's next you know? There's there's no changing scope of strategy there's no storyline. There's no dramatic ARCS. There's there's no real game mechanics. There's no injury like again when you when you understand. How Games work you you you start poking holes In West commonplace. Yeah no I mean I think that's that's it right. I mean the and that's kind of what I saw when I was at Westhaven prior was at the kids were literally just show so Do the do the camp. We had like a five week camp right in your Typical Club junior program five week camp in the spring after school. Let me do like a week long one or two in the summer than other file week. One instance after school in the fall and literally. That was the only time we saw all the kids are. They never showed up unless already committed playing. But that goes back to your your chart in. And so that's when that's how I came to the kids equation McGuinness's Mrs Awhile back. But it was like. How do I get the kids to show up between these camps because right now I'm just babysitting and you know and that's where it at the time? The levels was a good start to it because we would always leave the camp on a cliff note of the last pin that had to get was to go like shoot a certain score for nine holes right sure from like a set of tees and and we wouldn't do it in the can't we would put it to the parent and be like you know. This is something that you have to take your kid out to the golf course to do. Do and some that Youtube in new the parent are going to have to be honest and sign the card that.

We have the owner and director of discover golf. His name is Richard Franklin he is game buying your. You're junior golf programs. And the actually reached out to me through the social media and wanted to Share what he's doing the game and how he's grown it and Helping the other professionals like myself who teach a lot of kids Really improve their junior program so as I do all my guess I did a little homework on them and I liked what he has so oh this is a great chance to pick his brain a little bit more learn more about him and let him share what he's doing how he got into this Arena so Richard Research. Why don't you give us a little bit of background of how you got into the game and and word that start view? Yeah Hey thank you for having me Really a pleasure to be here So yeah I'm I'm a lifetime Player athletes have been around the game. As long as I can remember My parents are from Zimbabwe. Actually originally so I got my kind of spark With nick crises a family friend and Have kind of a international background and so it was fortunate enough to kind of play. Golf all over the world get the game from different perspectives and so oh A little bit of a different background from that standpoint but You know love at first sight kind of thing Always you know whacking away playing Ryan and You know was was a avid athlete. You know growing up middle school high school so Tennis Football Basketball you name. It played at all And then that graduated into a short stints You know on the beach or is that played Canadian tour for a couple of seasons and you know bouncing housing off That kind of you know minor leagues and Stayed Open Circuit and at the time. Nationwide Monday qualifying scene. And here I I have now and it's awesome. So what was that like when you decided to. Because kinda would ask everybody when the decide to play a little golf was the catalyst for you that. Did you decide that. That's what you wanted to do. Well I think I think I always You know that was always the dream and you know. My parents instilled in me. This idea that you know the worst possible thing would be to look back and have regrets So you know it was kind of always going to be And you know as hard as I could attempt at it And then you know it didn't work out and I saw the shortcomings of my game and you know some some of the luster in the romance of You know playing pro golf. You know that that wears them pretty quickly when you're living out suitcase and Yeah so so I think it was. It was never a question I was always going to try it So there wasn't really one sort of catalyst moment Think if you ask me when I was eight years his old. I'm GonNa tell you I was going to find a way to lease. We taste it. Yeah man I mean. I think that's count one. That goes back to his mantras. Shoot for the stars. Ars encasing land on the moon or something like that right You never you never really know what you're capable loving tape your feet in the fire and that speech that testament so you try your hand out out there playing in the in the pro ranks in and you decide that the better income is trying something else and not just you know not just the income component you know because it took a while as it does for all coaches two bills. You know a substantial livelihood coaching right so that there's a brick by brick process to so it wasn't like I was under any illusion that I was gonNA start. You know printing money on the other end of the equation but it's I think it was. It was a quality of life thing for me I You know I'm I was at the point where it was like. Okay the physical. We'll toll of this or even physical stimulation of this. You know the working out You know rolling the dice shooting. Good scores mean that. That's a very real positive thing but but you know from an intellectual standpoint You know I just found it you know. Obviously it's a lonely road road and your chip in putting playing all day long long. I've always been a thinker and so it wasn't really satisfying me On that end of the equation So I think to be to be honest You know that was that was the reason to get out of it. No I mean that. And that's a that's a great insight for anybody out there. This thing about teaching right. It does take a minute to Philip Book. It did for me and it does everybody in. I think and kind of what you've done though with your discover golf brand is if you can find a niche pitch in in something that you're good at and and be good at it and show people that you're good at then you can be successful right instead of trying to be a jack-of-all-trades trades you can hone in on that and that saying that you do well man you can absolutely be phenomenal and grow from there. So how did discover golf. take shape. What was that catalyst for that? Well that that's a winding road It in every possible sense so I was From the golfing machine more ad Sort of angle on things you know when I was in college and playing professionally in that obviously informs uh-huh You Know My early coaching which you know looking back You know you can do a lot worse than more at you know. At least as it's kind of framework I think I think so You know that parlayed in zoo you know spending time with Mac and thinking about all that stuff saying okay. How do I measure? You know what we're talking about. Right some of the terms get kinda nebulous and so I took a deep dive into one of the first people to have flight scope and Later on am eight sensor and You know it was looking at the you know. How Three D. was correlating to you? You know the geometry they hit and you know we all know where that's going and it was a really interesting puzzle And I enjoyed it for a couple of years and I think what it led me to was was a was an understanding that You know you could be saying all of the right things. Thanks right and in terms of okay. This is what you're doing x. y. and the wrist angles Hips and trunk you know rotations Shen ratios x-factor stretches and you're measuring put ground interface on your swing cat and yet yet. That's an incomplete answer to the client right so I kinda had this falling out with that and saying that there's a human human being here that is not going to practice necessarily anything that I'm telling him even though it's the most factual representation Tation I can give them of what's going on and so that led me sort of a much deeper place about you know why people fundamentally are motivating to be here in the first place In this was all happening at the same time that my junior practice was You know really taking shape right so I was working with good players almost exclusively and working with kids. It's kind of a side project and then you realize well. Hey that's a that's a whole nother other puzzle right. It's not just how people are motivated. you know. What's the developmental psychology behind? You know kids in their motivation right so there. There's another sort of subject of study. This was all sort of the the petri dish You know that's that discover golf you know came out nice. Yeah I mean they hit the nail on the head there when you just can't talk about like that that Petri dish effect right. I mean it's just like you see like one little stem take off and then unrealized can multiply and multiply and multiply and just keep becoming an animal So the the junior golf thing Kinda gained your attention. I and obviously that's where you've lead your career towards so For for you as a as a coach I think you hit the nail on the head when you talked about the like we we know we wanna know it as a scientific level but there are clients. Don't care they just want to get better. They don't care about the physics of the slain. They just want this not WanNa thank thank so we have it. Look I'm not and I'm and I'm not suggesting that the goal of doesn't need to know it at that level right I. I don't think they need to take like I. Did you know four years of their life. you know digging into that Manusha you know to that level but you know I'll just I'll put it like this. You know I think for me that the major inspiration was Constraints let approach and for those. That are going to be listening to to this. That aren't familiar with that term. You know I think the easiest way to say it that You as the coach wanted design environments right right which which then net out the kind of movement change. You know that you're looking to have happened with your student right. So if you want them them to swing their path more to the right or to the left or whatever it may be you know you can constrain the environments right. That would've deuce that movement without you necessarily saying anything. So the the problem with that is if you're a young cat and you say hey dig that constraint stuff. That's that's where I'm GonNa go with my coaching. But you've never fixed a slice before or you don't understand the underlying movement sequence geometry of what's going non well then you're in trouble too right. So I think for coaches. I advocate. Call it more of a you know a a attack rich learning experience right understand all the components. Make sure you have a bunch of different lenses cave you know Body tracks swing cats. Make sure you spend some time on her radar right all the tools that we have and then sort of okay. Put those off to the side and various buckets and then say okay. I'm GONNA move some stuff around right whether it's gates or cones or Goals or equipment right moving some of the constraints around and then sort of just check in with all of those various buckets. That you have and say I can articulate Eli. I'm doing this because I want his pressure to. You know get left. You know sooner you know so that you've got a more centered. Act Whatever you want to do at least you. You have a a kind of reference point to that is that makes sense. Yeah no absolutely absolutely so talk to us about discover golf. What like what is it? Exactly the. And how can coaches use it in their programs. Well so so you know talking about constraints let approach you know I got to the conclusion that okay And as I referenced before you've got this unbelievably interesting and messy human motivation component which is a constraint and itself right which is the human being asked to do the task at hand so Discover Golf with thinking about. Okay how how do you take those confluence of ideas and presented in a formalized capacity to the golf coach right so The conclusion I had was that games in gender and have those qualities inherent to them so Basically the last eight years of my life has been devoted to studying You Know Games as a scholarship and as a discipline and then being able to graft those ideas on top.
