"We're all so eager to see the. Back of course. The NFL season looms, closer ravens head coach. John Harbaugh said that the guidelines from the League are impossible to follow, but they would try their best. Harbaugh said that as a coach. You don't want to hear that you're limiting your operations as far as preparing your team, and then you hear ten other teams aren't paying attention to the rules, and then there's no consequence for that. That's what I don't want to see. I just think it needs to be fair, and it needs to be reasonable and I think they'll find a way to do that so Shannon your reaction to her comments skew. Social distancing in football, don't go together. Yup The oxymoronic I mean it's just a simple as that because you have this thing called huddle. DO YOU UNDERSTAND SKIP? Not all the teams are going to be. Required to train at their home facilities for training camp. You know like the cowboys used to go to oxnard thousand thousand oaks would they would go up there and train so Pittsburgh with the latrobe and yeah, but they got to be there. Do you know how big a ability you would need to have eighty guys in the locker room and have them six foot apart. You would actually need a locker room to size of a football field. And then how so what about what about showering skip? You normally have like fifteen thousand guys in in there, and they're like a couple of feet apart so what you will guy the two to three at a time. Well, he said the. Memo says one or two time. And how long GonNa take? All night. You miss a lot of media. But. Now it's. Just hard they're gonNA have to come to some kind of resolution. Some kind of conclusion skill is just going to be hard to adhere to all of the guidelines that the CDC. It helped the bishop set or in order for you to do this, but I just don't know how is humanly possible to do. They're going to ask them to do so. What about were I can't tackle the guy. What about the huddle? You don't how close we are in the huddle here. I just don't. I just don't get it and you talk about what you gotTa wear math. Get with mass. And you can. You can talk through, ask you can. Liberty we'll have with. Yep Yep big. Okay, we go do that. We all get getting getting a meeting rooms. Take the mess. Yeah I got I. Don't know how I skipped in a restaurant. You can sit table apart from each other and and things of that nature, but will you dealing with eighty guys in even during the season you're gonNA have fifty three guys is hard to put fifty three guys input guys six apart can. I. Don't know don't have to come resolution maybe by this. Maybe it'll be data three feet apart, maybe two feet apart, but I just don't right now i. just don't see how they can make this work. Yeah! So John Harbaugh said I'm pretty sure. The huddle is not going to be six feet spaced. That'd be a big gotTA. DO I. Get a lot of you could go no huddle, right? You can go hurry up the whole game. Yellows plays out to the flanks right. So it's clear to me John. Harbaugh's nerves are frayed, but so are everybody's. We are all going through this. You and I and Ginny are going through it everyday here in this antiseptic goes town. It is now are Fox News. Teams. You know how they feel about rules. Day By also might come up with a solution. You know there's a way around it. Call difficulty that but I'm just saying they work right now how to get around? Interesting So every day we get here and we have to get our temperature checked before we entered the building and we get asked questions about. Have you had this or that have had any symptoms? No, sir, no, sir, no ma'am, no ma'am right. Yeah, and I know why came about no Pareo balked bought at all. They got an. You can't be. Elevated you get out the elevator you go through a door right before by dressing room in the bathroom off the elevator. We all night with them. That's why I can't get real. How y'all got it all. That is correct in their new signs on the floor circle signs on the floor that say stay six feet of social distance. So, we're all living with it. We're all getting out of our minds with that. We all want it to go away and we all want our NFL to please come back, so I hate to hear. Reservations like these concerns by a coach, I have the highest room for John Harbaugh because he's right about everything. He said he's saying. Come on man. These are humanly impossible rules. We can't do this. And then he voiced at the end of the interview, his greatest fear. What if the other teams don't pay any attention to these rules? How are we going to police these? Because if you don't, it could give you a huge advantage. You could practice faster easier if you just give it up like weight room, he said. Are we supposed to go one at a time into the weight room? Now that's like showering. It's going to take all day and all night to get our lists right right spotters. You've got guys by guys. Because normally work together, you pay up two or three. A and you get to work out if so how you going to be one at a time. That's what the rule said. That's the memo. He got one at a time in the weight room. We you know and I know. How long does it take you to lift? It's an hour, usually our. Can get a good lift in how? Many hours in the day fifty three football player in camp there there's eighty eighty football player. How are they? Schedule Three am four am and five. Basically get okay. This is what you guys got one guy shower. One guy worked it out. Obviously! It's not realistic. He also said good people and smart people are involved in this, and he's talking about at the top of NFL management, and also the players association and they gotTa, get there smart heads together to figure out a little looser..

They did Giancarlos Tommy Smith. Going Away Mexico City. Fist raised. Yes, YEP, so it's not going away. People is not going to wait. These guys will say what we're seeing is.

"If you thought he was too good to be a backup bed. Why are you regretting it now? He was gonNA. Be a backup. You thought he was too good to be a backup. So, what are you regretting? Nothing nothing. Just let it go. Nobody called you I refuse to believe somebody called a guy that's been. Going Debate. Me Relationship, If I've, got somebody. Somebody almost albacore. We'll call it a guy. This speed feed dated with I'M GONNA call the Guy? She dated for six years. She was married to what would I call somebody you must be? What are you gonna be able to tell me? Being stopped it. was just skip. Just let it go. Why did you can't let it go you wrong? It's okay to say we were wrong about Cap'n. It wasn't about the flag. He could have played, but because the public outcry was so great because what he was doing during the anthem anthem. We didn't want to take that chance. That's what it was. It was as simple as that and if you work to do that, people will respect you a lot more as opposed to lying now. That the Reza I regret not signing and the reason why we didn't, he was too good, yeah! You have to Skip Bay area. Not WanNa have too many good players. What actually happened? He was too big a threat remember the context of the play in question that last play the Super Bowl after the twenty fourteen season. You wanted them to hand the ball to be smoke marshawn lynch. Carol said No. I want the ball and Russ's hands I want him throwing the football to Ricardo Lockette at the goal line. It's a play that they'd run all year right like the play and you know the rest of the store. And Malcolm Butler made the greatest clutch defensive play I've ever seen `specially late in the Super Bowl. History of the NFL. And it blew up in Pete Carroll's face and he continued to face a revolt of the defensive side of the ball because they thought that Russell turned into Pete's pet, and that was as strong, a black leadership and a locker room? Since. You guys had it in two thousand in Baltimore rate. Maybe not quite on that level, but when you have Richard Sherman, Cam Earl Thomas, and Bobby Wagner Michael Bit. It is strong. April clip favorable and it was frank. Clark was on yet team in the they were. They were getting close to revolting on that team because they weren't sure about Russell at that point, and they were sure that cap deserved a shot, and they were encouraging their head coach remember Richard have no qualms about going to P. Carol on the sidelines, saying, don't throw it. Run it don't throw it right in. I think they were quietly encouraging. Maybe loudly, encouraging him behind closed doors bring Colin Kaepernick. Take a look, so now pizzas that Colin twenty seventeen called him out of the Blue I don't believe. He called out the blue. You called me for advice. No, he didn't and what he called you. Because all of his black friends in the locker room are saying we want you and we've told Pete now. Connect with him, put the pressure on him and brought him in, and you talked to capture nick about their. For nothing it was, it was lip service didn't work out. He did not diagram at the whiteboard. Right? No Right. The chalkboard nothing nothing happened. They just talked any pattern them on the head, and that was the end of that and they kept Austin Davis as their backup quarterback, okay. They chose. Okay, so now brings us to the present and he was asking yesterday. Would you sign him now? Knee said well, probably not because we're very comfortable with way. Gino, Smith fits with Russell Wilson he's comfortable. Because Gina Smith failed starting quarterback, he's comfortable because nobody in Seattle. What's Gino Smith to start over Russell Wilson Right? There are no threat there. What so ever so? He has a black quarterback place as his backup quarterback and he's Cya, right? He's covered. Okay, and now he's even that kid from Washington. State which Aaron Gordon. That's their third straight. He's happy they're perfect. They don't need Colin. Kaepernick because that would cause a headache about thanksgiving. Why would you even bring that? You get your your roster. Said you got your quarterbacks. You've got roughly. Guy Drink Gino. You took a quarterback in the late around you said. Why would you even bring Colin back into the situation? That's what I don't get give. Bringing up that situation, man really feeling guilty. Be Not feeling bad. No! Skip this works. You. Remember when Michael Sam was coming out and say it was called defensive player to you US starting liberty. You started slipping and he's. Now and hold on. Wait a minute. The these are the best players and all of football year at the the year. More players Gordon the first route. More players get drafted out of that conference in any other conference in football. Yeah. Now, the Code Defensive Player of the year is going drafty. All uncomfortable around. The team. That's about what our way. How would you like to be i? Would you like to be a saint? Louis Rail. That's all they had to do. They could him concept car a bath? What they really really want to have with I agree that could have happened. That did not happen because nobody wanted to sign cap. That time I was talking to cap quite frequently. You heard from anybody. Know Dot, not a call. No I will talk to Seattle say okay. You throw it. Did you do no know? Talking Paul. So this notion about. All of a sudden like man man.

Yeah, you get all these citations, the one department and guess what you move down the road and you pop up at another one now. We need to know your background and and we need to have. Okay! What was the discipline? Didn't know because okay. I'm to you. This is your the no, no more than so we need. We need these owners boys. We need their influence. The money is nice. I'm not going to sit here and say it's not. That's a lot of money, and hopefully it can be used for worthy caused. Can't we need voices? We need powerful me and look like the man that's sitting in those suits. That's on Capitol Hill. We need me that look like bill. They're speak their language that go to the club, exclusive gloves and talk about these guys. You know what? Enough is enough. This is enough I mean this. This is not what I countries should be. This is not what I country with mid to be That's what I need from Bill. Skip and so for me if they take that money, and if I can get Jerry if I get them guys to go down there and lobby like when they wanna get old state of you remember they to want to get them stadium. Man They'd be in front of everybody. It'd be hug it. Shake your head Kiffin baby in the community. Something they wanted. Something they needed. This what we need, so I appreciate that League appreciate that Roger Goodale appreciate that NFL. Owners that can you take one more step forth? You take one more step I understand. Look. I got down to the twenty, but we in the red zone now. Yup, the field is condensed. We Need A. Guy That can go and jumping catching. Get Ball and ends on Jerry Jones. You can do that rousing. Dale Dan Snyder y'all could do. So today, they've given you. Less than about fifty cents worth of their voice in cloud. That's about all they've given Robert Kraft here and there meek mill we. Fought for him obviously. But for the greater good of the bigger picture, and causes no nothing. So I'm sorry I'll be Debbie, downer I, usually. Try to be bothered. Guilt. But this just feels like classic NFL owners. Let's just throw a whole bunch of money at the problem? Hope it goes away. They threw eighty nine million, the problem in two thousand seventeen. That's a lot of money I know when we talk in the context of billionaires, it doesn't seem like. Eighty nine million I have no idea where it went. I have no idea how it was spent. It didn't save George. Floyd's alive didn't save the bunch live. That risk kept on happening. and. Now two hundred and fifty million over ten, but to your point twenty five million a year, a lot of money in their context. It doesn't seem like that much, but. Seven hundred eighty thousand per year all right mission statement to combat systemic racism and support the battle against the ongoing and historic injustices. Served upon African Americans, suffered by African Americans. Okay I don't even know okay that all sounds good, but now how tell me how tell me where which give me details? I, don't know. and. Obviously Michael Jordan Jordan brand, so they made a hundred million dollar commitment over also ten years, but still so a lot of money. And that mission statement was. With the goal of ensuring racial equality social justice. And greater education greater access to education. Okay, that all sounds great to, but show me exactly. It's earmarked to do what how when we're. I don't know I. I applaud Lebron yesterday about the voting rights I I can see and feel the voting rights I. Get the audible. Yes, process. If you're going to early vote things of that nature, educate you to how you can be duped. Right? How how your vote can sort of get canceled how you cannot your voice cannot be heard. These are the ways to avoid it right. Okay that worked for me. That felt tangible. That felt real. That felt today. And it feels like two hundred and fifty million dollars worth of lip service to me because I have noted that so much money again over ten years, but But to whom where? Show me, give me a 'cause. Give me a the organizaion. That's going to get some of this money. And what are they gonNA, do with the money. Yeah, and so for me, scare I mean two hundred fifty million. But I'd rather have fifty million and have ten owners or ten feels a tim cook at apple or Google guys or Larry Ellison. I talk about the Guy Tesla talked about he. Okay, but I'm just saying skipped goal to have those guys go down there and land of across in front of Congress Senate. And just this is enough of the.

"And took him every morning as he sold cars and on the way to work. Work he would drop them off at seven thirty ball force, and the MOM would come and get him at seven PM for dinner okay. So that's what he just lived on the golf course. That's how you figure out how to play the to me. It's the hardest named play in the world. It will come and go inexplicably an unpredictably. Your brother plays it like crazy and it just ask him I. Know your brother it it it haunts torments him, and that's why you fall in love with it is because you can't ever. You can't win it. You can't get on his day issue. Sixty eight, sixty nine. Eighty three. Same. Court K. so. There's a program around. This country called I t most cities have I T my city. Oklahoma City has I T. I have donated. I have contributed to I T for ten years. Every summer they have. It's for underprivileged kids in, and it is a great program because they give you all you need. They give you golf clubs. All you need. They'd give golf balls and in Oklahoma City. They have their own nine hole course and it's a really good little coarseness. It's in the inner city region where you can get there quickly. And you can play all day every day in the in the sunshine summer. And They have lots of black his for underprivileged lot of white kids, a lot of black kids Hispanics native Americans. There's a good mix, but I looked last year. Just I called up the stats. They had hundred sixteen black kids playing last year. Then what happens that they haven't had one. Go onto any sort of college. Gregory. What happens I don't know. Play Golf every day you got. Go for the summer playing every day and then what happens when they built the summertime? Theory and I could be all wet about this one but to me. Golf takes too long. I don't like golf because it takes too long. Trust me slow play is even now killing the sport of Golf. It takes five hours to play eighteen holes. That's too long. There's too much standing and waiting while the group putts out on the Green. It's not that fun unless you get addicted to the challenge of it, and it's it takes a while to get addicted to it right so in the end I'm thinking the black kids with ability and you don't have to have. It doesn't take athletic ability to play golf. It takes hand eye coordination. You can be sort of anathema I know. Several unathletic golfers have great hand eye, and they piece together swing and they can play. They can score. I'm thinking a lot of black kids. Try Golf, and I remember the commercials after Tiger broke through I am tiger woods. I am tiger woods I am kid after I? Am Tiger Woods? I think a lot of them tried to tiger woods and found out. What Tiger Woods went through is hard. It takes a complete total commitment. The Tiger Woods play any other sports in high school. He did not. His father took him on a nationwide tours to play those junior vince. That's what takes money. Yeah I. Don't know how they had the money to go. But Tiger one three straight national junior championships, and they're played at historic courses all over the east coast. Okay, so he had to go every summer, he won three straight us. Amateurs there played at historic courses all over the east coast. You gotta be able to fly you and. And Your father to these tournaments, all over the place will herr. Von Barnard did not take that route right. He went to East Carolina. He became the player of the year in his conference. He came the hard way that was harder way. Okay, so my point is I. Think a lot of black kids get to a point at fourteen or fifteen, and they say you know what this isn't that fun. It's boring. It's boring same. Guy's GonNa just say the words right out of my mouth. We've had a door of African American. Young baseball players because I think they said you know what football's more fun basketball's just more fun, and it is it true baseball can be to tediously slow, I. Agree so in the end. It's not just economics. Because when I was growing up, there were a bunch of pretty good black golfers. Do you remember Lee? Elder Charlie Sifford Calvin. peete and Jim devloped. I mean I'm growing up thinking. These guys are really good now. They weren't tiger. They could win kept. Occasionally, yes, so so that generation that they came up the hard way, and they made it, and now we have none of that going on, and yet we're I grew up in Oklahoma City. There's of course I grew up on called. Lincoln Park and it was in. In a black neighborhood it was. For for sure in those days and Trust me. It was like fifty, fifty black and white golfers. Well, it seems like the black community sort of fell out of love over time with the game. Just is it fill out in love with baseball, so I'm sure that it straight economics, and by the way there've been a lot of white golfers who came up the hard way right? Like Ben Hogan he's the namesake this tournament he was he's. He's a poor kid. From the wrong side of Fort Worth he caddied is way up and then figuring out how to play golf. Okay, so you can do it without money, but you gotTa really want it. Yeah, I think the thing is get what he what Tiger did. Is he more black men to the golf?

"Coming up next segment a senior columnist for ESPN Howard Bryant coming up next hour a PGA tour pro Harold Varner the third coming up in our number three a running back for the Arizona Cardinals canyon Drake saw that coming up every telephone number you can also finance social if you want the world witnessed George Floyd being killed by police officers on may twenty fifth today George Floyd will be laid to rest in his hometown of Houston the funeral is scheduled to start right now what that might I would like to pause for a brief moment of silence in memory of George Floyd rest in peace George my thoughts are with his family friends and everybody who knew him and loved him in the wake of that killing there's been new attention paid to police brutality is well as institutional and systemic racism and that scrutiny is also being applied to a number of college football programs big time programs around the country it had which it had to address comments made by coaches over the years and no program has received more scrutiny than Iowa the school was placed right coach Chris Doyle on administrative leave after numerous players have come forward to describe negative experiences in the program on Friday former offense of linemen James Daniels tweeted quote there are too many racial disparities in the Iowa football program black players have been treated unfairly for far too long and quote former linebacker Terrance Pryor tweeted about dealing with quote many racist incidents and quote during his time in the program including a moment when Doyle said to him quote maybe you should take up rowing or something you know oh wait black people don't like boats in water do that end quote a former defensive back talk about Doyle mocking black players and as a result quote made you walk around the football facility on egg shells and costing society they could be unbearable at times with your dreams and career on the line and quote there was an allegation from one player they Doyle quote told me to go back to the streets I'm not from the streets and quote another player told the story of wearing a Nike face mask to keep warm and a coach quote asked if I was on my way to rob a liquor store or a bank and quote according to reports the coach you said that was not Doyle it was Brian Ferentz some of the head coach Kirk Ferentz on Sunday Doyle released a statement that seem to be heading in the right direction for the first three paragraphs he talked about his commitment to Iowa football he commended the players are speaking out he wrote that it saddened him you hear the stories of the players difficult experiences in the program and a quote it is the time to listen learn and grow most importantly it is time for action and then I'll send a pretty good that sounded like something to work with and then came the final paragraph what I've been asked to remain silent but that is impossible for me to do they have been statements made about my behavior that are not true I do not claim to be perfect I made mistakes I learned lessons and like every American citizen can do better at no time have I ever cross the line of unethical behavior or bias based on race I do not make racist comments and I don't tolerate people who do end quote he then went on to say that he's confident a review of his work will confirm this and that there are quote countless men of character who are better fathers husbands activists leaders and contributors to society due to their experience at Iowa football and quote yeah I don't know what did or did not happen in the Iowa football program or what Doyle did or did not do but I do know this this is not one or two disgruntled players according to Dennis Dodd it's an estimated forty players as of earlier this week forty that's a massive number that's not one guy who's passed because of a lack of playing time that's a huge number that's not a one off that's a pattern and there better be serious questions asked both of Doyle the highest paid strength coach in the country and of the head coach because he's the man in charge he should be the one who knows what the culture of that program is like how many times have I had a coach or general manager on this program and the subject of cultures come up pretty much every single time culture is the one thing the coaches love to talk about is the one thing coaches love talking about the most because it's the thing they believe that they can control the most they know they can't necessarily control wins and losses or the way the ball bounces on the field but culture is within their control so listen to the players describe their culture in Iowa one former running backs a quote I used to get called in the coach's office because I had too much tattoos and it wasn't the quote Iowa kosher or quote the Iowa way end of quote former safety Amani hooker quote it would be difficult for black players to walk around the facility be themselves end quote former linebacker Desmond Moses quote they wanted us to buy into the culture a culture that wasn't ours I watched young black men be given harsher punishments and shorter leashes and quote again to reiterate this is not a rogue employee making an inappropriate comment one time it is the strength coach dies page right coach in the country a guy who has been with court for ants since nineteen ninety nine allegedly creating a very uncomfortable culture and not just the head coach is right hand man either but his son allegedly is doing it as well but honestly from the sounds of this this is worse than the head coach's right hand man and his son because if you listen to all these players and again it's not one or two it's upwards of forty or more if you listen to them that's a description of the culture that's their culture for at least one player this is the Iowa culture or the I. away so France was quick to release the video on Saturday calling this quote a defining moment for the Iowa Hawkeye program and a quote and creating an advisory committee of former and current players he then conducted a zoom call with the media Sunday so credit for responding quickly to a crisis I guess sort of but where has this been where has he been over the years and how is he surprised by this how is this a crises right now the first question from a reporter on Sunday was how does this happen here is the head coach's response to that question the the third quarter let me just preface it by saying this and this is something I shared with our staff on Saturday morning when we all woke up on Friday routine that was coming off a successful season at a great moment and she's in San Diego and when we left campus on the thirteenth of March also like you know we're well positioned with this team and what program moves forward so I was very excited about that obviously what's happened since that point huh what yes it's a fair question you're right of course is a fair question what are you doing referencing a December bowl win over USC in response to that question and this isn't something that has changed since they're from former players we just leave the program this it just happened since our last game these are issues that go back years.

"How does tiger physically look greenie. He looks a lot better than he did last week. Here's the thing about last week last week. He played practice nine holes with dustin johnson. I kept and harold varner. The third on tuesday and h v three kept going. I'm gonna hit it by your old man. I'm gonna hit by oh man. Entire entire was going after going after and i think that's why he was a little bit sore on wednesday during the pro am now thursday remember. He said he felt like he had a mild oblique strain and that's why he withdrew on friday all day today. He didn't play any practice yesterday around all day today. He's been swinging really smooth the driver. It looks really good. The balls jumping off the club face and as we both know greenie sometimes golf is like a game of opposite the hard swing the ball doesn't go as far and tiger right now is smooth and it just made a really nice swing here at the par-three eighth ball went right over top of the flagstick and he converted that birdie putt and he looks like he's moving very are- freely which we didn't see last week gotta tiger woods as well now. All of that is obviously outstanding news if you are a fan the other big question is he's thirty eighth as as i mentioned in the fedex cup standings only top thirty make it to next week. What do you expect agreeing. I'll be lying. I say i'm surprised tigers here because because of that he has to finish eleventh or better if he hopes to get to the tour championship where yeah he's defending champ but if he sneaks in by the skin of his teeth he's got no chance whatsoever ever to win the fedex cup. I think a successful week for tiger woods this week. We'll be playing all four rows and remember. It's only the top seventy that are here so so there's no cut which means tiger can get four pool rounds of golfing and that's going to be the key not tiger getting to tour championship but tiger finishing four rounds and feeling good when he's done now look. It's a good year because he won a major this year. Any year you wanna major is a good year but the rest of it is obviously been questionable michael. We'll see you tomorrow. Thanks a million for doing in this and we'll probably also see.
Tiger battling stiffness ahead of playoff opener
"Tell you you might remember his last start in the playoffs was last year and his epic win at the twenty tour championship that sort of set the stage for his win at the masters this year that win moved him into a tie with rory mcilroy dustin johnson for the most wins during the playoff since they debuted which was in two thousand seven. The three repairs are combined for a twenty five percent of the playoff events contested today and we're going to show you live pictures right now. Tiger woods as he is on the course and we will bring michael collins into the conversation because michael as you saw there has been following tiger around liberty national this morning good morning michael collins. What have you seen. How is tiger looking this morning. You see tiger walking off right now but he told me before he said <hes> oh here. We would have been around this morning what i said. What should i tell everybody he goes. Tell him i'm on the t. but he was supposed to be on t. at seven and there was a delay so he didn't get out on the t. till seven thirty so he was lying about seeing on the t. Here's what i've seen for tigers so far today. It's as simple as this. <hes> it is a pro-am there are three guys playing with it from the northern trust and and it's been just like this when it comes down to it. He's been hitting the ball pretty good. Yesterday he played a practice round with brooks kapka dustin johnson and <unk> harold varner the third and they had a lot of fun out there. Those guys play ten holes tiger hit a pretty good. The funny story was sarah varna. The third started the day and said i'm just gonna hit it by tiger. So you're like a iron pipe and tiger said i'm a hammer and hammer beats pipe. Every time and varner never hit a pass them. He thought he did want and said. I got you on that one. I got you on now and i've been working out and harrow garner that there's caddy do him under the bus and said man. You worked out two days. Which of course it does. The johnson brooks let a couple ago and when they let their drives go even how varner that there was a. I think they got both of tiger. I think they gotta pass this so far tigers. There's just hit it okay. He hasn't hit spectacular to be honest with you because there was a delay. The range was opened late. So tiger looks a little bit stiff like he hasn't gone through his full warmup warmup routine. He said a couple balls left. Enwright came up short with an iron shot from the middle of the fairway so it looks like he's just slowly but surely trying to get warmed up but that's what pro-am i am days four right yeah super-quick michael. You've been white on with us when we had you on before the british open and we drowned before the p._j. Both times you said don't expect much from him. Give me a rundown here. What do we expect from him in these playoffs this well let me start. Let's just start with this week. It's real easy for this week my prediction for tiger this week he's gonna fall fall outside the top ten but i think he can be inside the top twenty five and the reason that i say that is because the forecast for this week is for temperatures to be in the mid eighties every single day which means tiger won't have trouble warming his back up and it also means. You don't have to worry about getting stiff during the rounds. Hopefully this'll be a good week for tiger. We'll be watching and we get these playoffs underway earlier than in years past as they have a new schedule on the p._g._a. Tour so well done michael enjoyed out there. Stay safe tigers coming at you and we will see you a little but later in the program his pen back adam. Thank you michael collins. We'll see in a little
