"Just had this great photo of my dad, you know, with his hands out, taking the video and then up frame is pat Perez, like posing over a pretty bad layup shot, and what she ends up cussing at himself. And it was just like the perfect little visual of how you can kind of make someone like these PGA Tour players can make someone's day just by kind of being themselves. And being very authentic and pat Perez was being himself. But then I tagged, I made a post of this photo on Instagram and I tagged pat Perez, and I think the caption was something like Troy zox saw his first pet Perez cuss storm. And like a day later pet present blocked me. Wow. I wonder how many people he's blocked on Instagram. Yeah, I mean, if that's all it takes. There's got to be a lot of people, but you know, I mean, it's not like you were being insulting. I was reporting the truth. That's interesting. Is anyone else block you on Instagram? Any of these other PGA Tour players or Twitter? No, I don't think so. And John Daly's blocked me on Twitter. That was a long time ago. He's blocked a lot of people. Gosh, anyone else. Can you still see pea reads, tweets? Yeah, yep. Well, me and me and Patrick get along just fine. He gave me a look to the Patrick and I get along pretty well too, Sean, but that does not mean I can see his action on Twitter. Anyone else that you were excited to see on this leaderboard besides your social media following? Steven Yeager finishes T 15, that guy was like the pride and joy of the corn ferry tour last year and has done nothing this year. So I'd like to see him play better golf. Diets that not really. Fair enough, Kurt kitty Yama, big week has sneaky been a bit of a trick or treat guy himself finished third at the Honda classic second this week. Nothing else I don't believe in the top 25 in his PGA Tour career. So pretty cool for him. And yeah, of course, you know, Martin trainer, man..

"You know, when you're that young, you grow so fast that I had to go out belief to the hospital every week to get recast it to fit my leg properly, but even then my right leg from knee down grow at a smaller rate. So it's a centimeter and a half shorter, which is just over half an inch shorter. And my right foot is so so smaller and my right ankle mobility is extremely extremely limited. That's why I swim short because if I go higher up, I tend to lose balance and I don't have the strength in my ankle to control the speed I could create. So that's why I have a short swing, you know? It's as simple as that. I also grew up doing other sports. People notice highlight in the U.S. for people that know nothing with a wooden hook but just a wooden paddle. And it's a lot of sports that were very similar. You know, you don't take the paddle or the rocket past shoulder height. And I learned how to create power that way. So it's what made me more accurate. It's what was easier for me to keep balance and keep control of and because of that physical limitation I just kept going from there and is what made me my swing the way it is. That's why swindon west wing now. It also have a boat wrist because that's how I naturally create power in my wrist. I also have hypermobility when I bow it, but I can't really cut it that much, so my wrists naturally fall that way. And that's what I mean by limitations. I feel like TPI has done a great job creating a screen process to know what your body can or can not do. And trying to copy other ways. It's just not going to work out because physically you might not be able to do it. So I would say for the younger generation, you don't necessarily need to work out all day and try to get super strong, but understand how your body moves and where your body can or can not do is going to be very, very beneficial for you. I haven't tried to change technique on my swing in ten years now almost. Maybe a little bit less. 8, now, ten years is good, maybe even more than ten years. And it's because of that, I realized early on that I couldn't do certain things. And I was like, well, this is what I got, and I was trying to get as good as we can with this with this swing. And now you can obviously work out and treat certain parts of your body to complement the physique and those limitations. I like to say guidelines, those guidelines that one has. And that's what I do. And that's what kept me really healthy and that's one of the keys to my consistency, I believe. I tailor my swing to when my body can do. That's fantastic stuff. We're going to get you out of here. We really appreciate the time you spent with us. I'm going to get you out here with this final questions. One, what's your energy level at the end of this wildest 15 months of golf that I can really to my knowledge of the wildest 15 months or busiest 15 months in my history of covering golf at least and what a successful 2022 looks like? I know it's two questions, but just want to get your input on that before we take off. So I think the end of the year and write a cup, kind of really dip me in. I mean, I went to U.S. open. I feel like since April when Kappa was born those last 6 months, mentally, we've gone through a lot. Good and bad, right? I feel like it's been taken a lot of big tour and my mind and I can tell you this last day on Friday and bother on I was dragging myself around the golf course to where there was a couple times where I was trying to try my best to play good golf, and I would look at a shot in my mind was completely blank because I could just not process I was that tired mentally. I've never reached that point in a realized couple days ago, why I was. Basically, from the restart in COVID on June of 2020. Till last week, I really didn't have any rest. Like none whatsoever. You know, we finished this season, even in the fall, we have the U.S. open CJ zozo and the masters, right? Now, for people that don't know this between the masters and Mao we had, I think it was 6 weeks. I flew home from the masters. The next day I jumped on the plate to San Diego and spent 5 days. Basically, from sunrise to sunset on the range of colorway, work in my bottle of trying to make sure everything was fit perfectly. And even when I got back home, I kept grinding to make sure I was adjusted to everything I needed to when the season started. And I feel like, you know, not resting on that period when I got, you know, after the writing cup, which playing 5 matches at that intensity, like I like to say enemy territory, it was very, very draining. So yeah, I was a year and a half of them stopped and I was done. I'm only processed. I'm on week one of three weeks without touching a golf club, which I haven't done a very long time because I need it. It's my time to be a father of my time to be a friend and just enjoy the life of a 26 year old, which at the end of the day, even though I'm a husband and my dad, I'm still 26. I'll be 27 soon. And I'm just trying to enjoy it, you know, just a little bit of a reset. I'm still working out. I actually started working out yesterday and my God. I got out of shape in just a week. I drank a little bit more than I usually do. I'm not gonna lie, but it's still, I'm just, you know, I'm still tired. That's a thing. I'm trying to get back into it just to make sure when I start hitting a golf club. I'm physically ready to be able to do it. But, you know, as I like to say, be a normal 26 year old man, go go kart and play pick a ball. I have a good friend and maybe go to a shooting range, and he'll do a couple of different things that are not golf related. Just reset the mind. I heard Tom Brady talk once and competitive stamina. And just making sure you can recharge that, you know, not go overboard. And we have one more event left this year, but for the most part, it's going to be just relaxing. Now, for the next year, I haven't set my goals yet. I haven't that. I usually have a mental coach and do an end of the year session with him and then focus on next year. You know, keep doing the great job I've been doing on and off the golf course. The process I've had has been really, really good this year. I think we're nailing down two hour really works for me. And obviously, if I could choose, obviously, win a major again. That's a goal in a major. It's always a gulp, but hopefully I can get again more than one win on the PGA Tour. You know, it's able to do it last year..

"Big sense of relief, I believe after the tournament is done and when you have part of a team event win or lose, I think that lingers a little bit, you know, I've been a part of both and that when, you know, you want to celebrate it. Your state of euphoria is so much higher just because I feel like you're connecting the 12 players and by captains and captains all together, right? So it's more like a 16 and one in that sense, right? So it's multiplied quite a bit. I don't think I think the feeling is not a underwhelming feeling. It's just the duration of it is so much longer. And same with the loss. I mean, you can feel it for longer period of time. Now, I can also say, you're talking about if you take the players, you're talking about 12 individuals who, for two years, well, I guess the European team is every two years. You play alone, 99.9% of the time is you and your caddie. You win or lose an individual, whatever you do is you win or you lose, it's all your fault or until you're done. You're the one to blame whatever it's good or bad, right? And I don't think we're used to dealing with emotions of the 11 other guys you're playing with. I don't think we're used to the extra energy and taking on other people's emotion, and you also don't want to put any of yours into other people, especially if it's negative, right? I think we're just not used to being a part of a team. And that's why I think you see a lot of those things that happen on the right. That's what makes it unique. That's what it's so unbelievable about it. I mean, you have 24 of the best players in the world who come as one and even make Brooks and Bryson hug each other that never happens. It's ever going to happen again. Besides in the writer cup, right? So it's quite special. And I feel like only people that play the team event whatever looks playing it. I think I'm doing the best job. It takes like this is probably my 6th or 7th rider cup covering in some capacity. It's taken this long for me to feel like I'm starting to understand that right in terms of just the fact that when you win something, it's just you. You don't have anyone to share you have your family and what not to share it with but you don't have teammates to share it with. I don't know. This time around really resonated for me, I think, and I'll ask this about the future of the writer cup as well. So Europe dominated in 2018, the U.S. dominated in 2021, but home teams have won 7 of the last 8 and ten of the last 12. So I'll just ask you this. Do you think the home field advantage is too big in the Ryder Cup? No, I'm done. Okay. Not that I'm used to getting controversial statements and not that this is going to be, but I do believe COVID made this a much more favorable environment for the U.S.. Just because we had four or 5 European fans. That's it. There was 45,000 people allowed on the golf course that week, not counting family and friends, which wasn't that much. 44,995 were American. So the problem with us is we knew that any cheer we heard was something bad and any silent. And then the cheers are overblown. Usually when you hit a wet shot to 30 feet, there's no collapse in the U.S. team hit a wedge out to 30 feet to not a great shot. And they're going crazy, right? So it's hard as a player when you're going out. Just not hear anything. You didn't know what was going on as a team. And I think that's what could make it really hard, especially for the first timers. Me and Serge of being the ones going to first so often, I think made it easier just because nobody in front of you, you kind of got a wind up point, right? It's an important one. But besides that, it was just odd to not hear anything. You have no support. I feel like any given year, you might get I don't know, maybe 5 to 10,000 Europeans that show up and you have a presence. We have none that walking into the first tee, it was total total enemy territory, which I particularly loved. I had a great time. It was, you know, me and Sergey embraced it. We had a good time, and then we embrace the silence, but you know, I can see how he can be a little bit different in other cases. But I do think there's a home field advantage and as it should be. I mean, every sport has it. It's just, it's just how it is. And I'll also say, you know, talk about this too with podrick Harrington. That COVID could not have been a great thing in general for the Europeans as a whole. I mean, you guys are used to playing a fair amount of your golf split around the world more so maybe than the American players and a lot of you have homes in the U.S. and whatnot. But it was not the same effect COVID in terms of your schedule, worldwide, and the overall just even the way the teams formulated, right? I mean, I feel like that's kind of a story that hasn't been totally told in recent months. I mean, can you believe can't you believe that we got approval for my parents? I think everybody's parents to go to the writer cup. I think it was 5 days before they had to travel. Or maybe a week. We didn't know if our family was going to be able to come, coming from Europe. I think that's a ludicrous thing about it. You're talking to one of the biggest events in the world that has 45,000 fans. Yet, I don't know if my parents can come from Spain. I had actually told them we couldn't do it. And it was three days later, what I found out that they found a waiver to come in and they did. There's a big difference this year in that case. I mean, just our support, our family, we didn't know there were going to be able to be there. And that's some of the things. I mean, it's not an excuse, but that's one of the things that COVID made it so much more difficult. If your parents live in the U.S., well, they could, because it's easy that you're in the U.S., but international travel made it so so difficult. For them to be able to come. Yeah. Yeah. That's one of the examples. It's just COVID didn't make it any easier for anybody. No. It most definitely did not. And it's everyone's favorite topic, of course, and I know it's a topic you've covered extensively since the memorial. But, you know, it was one of the wildest scenes of the year and where you're putting on an all time performance at memorial. And we don't know this as fans watching, but you've been in the testing protocol for several days prior to this knowing that there was a chance you could test positive due to being exposed to somebody. But are you thinking about that? While you're putting on this performance, are you at all thinking about the possibility of testing positive while you're playing? No, but I was aware that it was a possibility. I don't know what to tell you. Yeah. I don't know what. I don't know how to explain it, you know, I had gotten vaccinated shortly before. And I spoke about this too. I had the J&J vaccine appointment done and literally 30 minutes before I got to the clinic is when they called him back, they suspended it for the problem they had for a second. And that's why mine got delayed because then we had the PGA and I was like, well, I'm not going to take you right before and I'm not going to risk side effects but that's why you do what I did. And I was in contact with somebody who tested positive and then throughout that week, I wasn't feeling my best, but I was like, well, it could be side effects..

"So in a lot of those par threes, we're kind of like just hit it to the center of the green and let's see if we can make something happen. And I think that's why you worked, right? He was supposed to just give me a birdie chance, and I was supposed to make it. And when I started making those putts the first day, I got so much confidence that that's why it worked so well. I mean, we kind of executed the plan. You're supposed to have. And when the guys hit it, I mean, 6 and 5 irons from those long par threes right after pit and just giving me options. I was like, well, let's take advantage of it. So take us in that team room, you know, because from what I've gathered, there's been some great stories about the energy in that room, how the new members of the team were celebrated. The videos and the production and the hype. Can you tell us what all that was like? And you know, is that something that, you know, contributed greatly to your enjoyment of the week? You know, the European team production European production team does such a good job that week with the videos that the fun videos and the motivational videos. I feel like I can't tell you how it is in the U.S. team because obviously I haven't been a part of it, but when you go into the writer cup, you better be ready. To laugh at yourself in our team room. Because that's basically the whole point of that. They're going to find something that might make you mad and just make jokes off the jokes and video off the radio trying to get you a little bit more loose, right? To get to, just forget about your ego forget about certain things that part of a team we all make fun of each other. And it is great to see all this players that have accomplished so much, just having a good laugh, right? All this 40 some year olds acting like all of us 20 some years old. It's really, really cool to see that. And it also makes it that great atmosphere. As soon as you're walking, I think everybody senses it. And we kind of naturally just gravitate toward each other like that. And then those videos they make. They're emotional, you know? Yeah, they're really, they're really, really unique. They really hit deep in the heart and the history of the team in the history of the European tour. So they do a great job with it. And Kyle Porter wrote a great piece for CBS about the team aspect of the writer cup and how strongly that differs from the atmosphere week to week on the PGA Tour. And a lot of it was kind of a reaction to Rory's reaction, you know, obviously being very emotional after his Sunday singles match and just, you know, the perspective on how lonely pro golf can be at times and I'm just wondering kind of what your perspective is on all that. And it just seemed like that week in particular, even in a losing effort, the European team are the people that we heard from, just had such strong feelings and emotions towards that week and I'm just wondering what your perspective is on that. It's really hard to explain. I mean, you had Rory crying on TV, you had Lee wears we crying on TV yet. Ian poulter, I'm pretty sure some TV in a couple others that weren't on TV. So I don't know how to explain it completely, right? I mean, you have you're playing for so much more than just yourself. Yourself, the country represented in the whole continent. You know, you win as a team and you lose as a team. And I think like I mentioned earlier, this is a state of vulnerability when it comes to being an athlete especially in an event like that that I don't think people realize. You put your heart and soul into it and sometimes it doesn't work out. So when you don't win a match, it's easy to feel like you're letting down the team when that couldn't be farther from the truth, right? We're all proud of each other because we're all trying as hard as we can. And that's why I think you see some of the emotions come out. I mean, you have Rory, who's had nothing but success in the writer cup and off the writer cup and just the inhabit good week and he felt it, you know? He has been a powerhouse in European team for many years now and to not perform like he wants himself to perform, can be painful like that. And I felt the same thing. I mean, I came in on my rookie ride up to four player in the world playing amazing and me and Rosie last that first match against Brooks and Tony finau and God, I was nearly in tears and tears. I felt so bad for the team. And that was the first date. I can't imagine on Sunday. So. It's one of those things that it's very hard to explain unless you get to experience it yourself. Just by being on the team room, you would understand. And I'm trying to do my best to put it into words, but I know I'm not doing nearly enough justice. Let me try to help because he had a line in that article, especially that said, failing together can be far more meaningful than succeeding alone. And it sounds weird to say that, but I'm wondering, I've heard Rory say similar things I've heard David Duvall say things that you know when they've won big tournaments in their life. The feeling that they've had either shortly after immediately after, did not match their expectation for how that would feel. And I don't know if that helps at all kind of describe what you're saying or if you've experienced that at all in your career. I would say that drenched the duration. When I fill one I want to invent this pretty much and I expect it to feel, but I think for most people I haven't experienced it, it won't last as long as you think. You think it will last forever, but when it's an individual sport after maybe ten minutes has gone, like you've done it and it's over, right?.

"Is our premiere and then you can always catch it was we travel around Michigan. You can catch it for eternity on YouTube. So let's get back to John rahm. What's an example of what you were tea enough when you were scared? What did you learn from that? Oh, shinnecock. My God. 'cause I get to see and it's like, well, you can't miss the fairway. You can miss the green. You missed the green. You're not getting it up and down, and I was just playing in a very, if you were that I wasn't playing my best, right? My swing wasn't feeling great. I was just trying to not miss instead of hitting the right shot by trying to hit a good shot and that's well. What happened? I think I shot whatever 1314 over in two days and went home early. So you mentioned learning stuff at Augusta. What have you, what have you learned over the years at Augusta and what gives you confidence that you'll be able to win a master someday? Well, I feel like a gust that lets you play your own game, right? There's not one strategy that fits it. That's kind of it. If you're not a straight driver, you don't need to be the best driver of the golf ball there. You're just need to hit good iron shots and be able to get some up and downs. Do you get such a variety of different players that play good and win there that is just you got to learn how to play it yourself. I think the best advice I've got at August that was from fail. He said, listen. Contrary to popular belief. Every hole at Augusta national. Except par 5 plays over par. So parts are never bad. And when he told me that, is when something clicked, right? You get two holes like three, where you hit driver and you're 40 yards away. And you think you have to make birdie, but you'd rarely see a birdie on that hole, right? Holes like 7, whatever you put it in the fairway, you have pretty much no more than 9 9. There's a couple examples like that. 9 were with the right wind conditions. If you get it down there, you have a wedge. And you still see bogeys and mistakes, right? So there's no one that parts aren't bad. Even on par 5, you're not losing that much. For those statisticians out there, you're losing .1 to .2 strokes. Depending on the day. So you really are missing that much. And I think that was the key. A lot of times you see people shoot 16, 17, 18, and they're like, that's the national, but that doesn't happen every year, right? So just realizing that parts aren't bad. It was the biggest key, Phil was giving me the example when he won on O four. He part 15 when he had a chance to make birdie and then ended up buried in 16 and 18. Just because he knew that, you know, in the passage, make the mistake of being too aggressive and making a big number at the wrong time and realizing that force and 5s and threes at the right time are really, really good, obviously. So I think that's the best advice I've gotten because technique wise each one plays the golf course the way they see fit. Because they actually have quite a bit of room to maneuver the ball the way you want. And yeah, you mentioned that you maybe haven't been in contention in contention at the masters, but you've played 5 masters in your top four in ten of them, including each of the last four. So I think it does seem like you're learning something incrementally year over year that you play in that event. I feel like if you have a Spanish passport, you're going to play well there. That's going to well we caught up briefly after your match concluded on Sunday at the Ryder Cup and you were just buzzing despite you know the result of your match that day and the team result. It was, you know, you were just kind of overjoyed if I may say just from your experience that week. What is it, how would you describe it, you know, the why the writer cup gave you that feeling or what was it about this particular writer kept that gave you that feeling? I think a bit of it was not a fake smile, but a smile covering up the pain of losing, just trying to put, you know, keep a smile on and not be too upset in front of the camera, especially what people were playing. I didn't want my teammates to see me, or down on myself. Just because we're having a bad day. I wanted to give they saw me to at least get a glimpse of a smile. You know, knowing that I was encouraging them. But at the same time, I had a lot of fun in the golf course, we served you that week. You know, those two days, the first four will be played with how good we played and C and D, which made Sergio the greatest writer player of all time was very, very, very unique. And hands down. That was the most fun I've ever had in a golf course in my life. It's the satisfaction of maybe winning a major when the tournament is different, but it's fun comes. That was the most enjoyable time in a golf course. There's a few days with him. You know, especially when I made that long part of 16 outside of the afternoon. That was probably one of the most fun moments I've had in my career. It was very unique just to share that with somebody like him, you know, somebody I looked up to for so long. It's just too bad. You know, we're not going to have. We're not similar H and we're not going to have, you know, 5 or 6 more rider cops to look forward to. But while we can both play the writer cup, I'm definitely going to enjoy it as much as I can. As an American fan, it's going to take a lot more to convince me that Sergio won't be playing 5 or 6 more of these. I think he's going to be he's going to be striking. He's going to be strike at 8 irons at the flag for eternity in my eyes. It is incredible. When he's standing over the ball, especially being him, I have full confidence that he's just going to absolutely struck it out the pin, because he didn't do anything, but that week. It's pretty incredible. Besides the tea shots on Juan, where he admittedly was trying to hit it so hard that he just missed him, everything else. Yeah, I mean, he just gets there and hits a perfect shot. I mean, iron chat where lasers right at the pants. He's done it for 20 years, but, you know, when he's your teammate, it's that much more enjoyable. I was like, well, I just hope 15 to 20 foot range pod is, you know, it's warmed up and we're gonna have a lot of fun. And luckily, it was that week. Well, that's what one thing takeaway I had from watching you guys was seeing how you elevated each other and how, especially in foursomes, you know, when your alternating, how you guys complemented each other so well and how you were able to arrange the holes where, you know, he was hitting, I think you were he was teeing off the odd off the evens, which gave the iron play. You know, gave him a lot of opportunities to hit a lot of mid irons or long irons into greens. And it was just really cool to see how teams actually worked both four ball and foursomes. I've always said four ball, you know, you can kind of pair up whoever doesn't really matter. You just play in your own ball, but I really got a sense of what it kind of does to the other team to have another guy, you know, number one player in the world and also another guy who's throwing darts, iron wise in on repeat, how hard that is to beat. Well, I mean, to be fair, surge is a great ball striking, but let's not say that ball striking is my weakness. No, that's what I'm saying. We both so good teeter grain that we could have chosen any strategy, which is the way they told us that's why I couldn't care any less where I teed off and they were like, well, whoever tease off on the event has more putts. We were like, okay, well, I guess I'll put I think it was also more of the fact that if you Tito from the outside, you have three part threes to deal with. Yeah, three, you had 7, and you had 17. And I like the tee shot on 18 as well. I like the T-shirt on 16. And I wasn't so sure about some of those par threes. I feel like the way surgery hits a ball, compliment it better..

"I think the hardest part was Thursday and Friday for me to not shoot myself about the tournament. When you're standing over putts on the 71st and 72nd holes, I can ignore the fact that they're probably the biggest putts of your life yet what goes through your mind? Are you trying to stick to a process? How do you stay present in that moment? Well, there are only the biggest if you make them. If you don't, two more putts. You know that Sunday was very unique. I felt something special the whole Sunday. And if you go back on the round, I hit good putt after a good putt after a good putt. I very close from going in, but they don't want to ride. It's point of green. U.S. open Sunday, you're not supposed to be dropping bombs left and right. On those two parts, I mean, you couldn't tailor two parts more to where the similarity to the greens where I grew up where their point of greens and severely sloped. You know, I'm used to hitting parts that break a lot. That's where it almost feel more comfortable. I rather have two feet of bragged in a district but it's this weird, this is how I grew up and what I'm comfortable. So when I saw that pattern 17 at the end of the day, it almost takes pressure off of me because you kind of have to give it the right speed and all that big break and two putts were good. I'm not gonna lie. Two putts were great from their apart. I was still one back time for the lead. So it wouldn't have been that detrimental, but I just felt good all over it. I stick to a process, you know? Every time I get asked that question, we all have our routine for that to get your mind on the proper frame of mind to be able to hit that pot. And that's exactly what I was doing. And both holes. If anything, I felt more of the pressure on 18, obviously because I knew that was enough to seal the deal to make it a lot more difficult for Louis than on the other one. Have you, I guess in your mind, what is the difference between the test, the requirement in let's say just whatever you want to call it a regular PGA Tour event versus major championship? How different is the test of golf? And I know each major is different, but you know, I'm always curious why we see the same kind of names tend to rise up leaderboards at majors when tour events almost feel like, you know, you have some guys that cycle in and out. I'm curious your perspective on what you think the different requirements are if they are different. Well, I think you almost have to leave a gust out of this because everybody gets to play a gas ta every year. So you could learn how to play that golf course. That is something you can learn how to play and try to find a strategy. But at the end of the day, I feel like it's like any other sport, the better players just show up when the moments are biggest. And I feel like golf related is such a mental sport. It's all about what goes through your mind. You know, I feel like a lot of the people in the field are playing a major for the first time you're nervous. You're excited. You want to do well and it's hard to put yourself in that situation. Others may be a little bit of scared of the golf setup, like it can happen in the U.S. open. It's happened to me, you tee off scared. I have done that. And as a general norm, especially on the weekend, it's just, you know, the bigger players trying to take advantage of an opportunity. And that's why I think you see that. That's one of the examples of Brooks. I just simply matters more, therefore, you show up with your game. I don't know. It's hard to explain to be honest. I wasn't that name until the last few majors since the masters we had in the fall were I've been playing pretty good and showing up in the leaderboard. But before that, I was one of those who maybe wanted it too much, you know, I feel like born in a major something incredible and you have to take it one day at a time and a lot of times I was trying to win it on a Thursday. A quick break here to check in with our friends at precision pro, of course, hopefully you're watching our YouTube series tourist sauce, which is airing on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on our YouTube channel.

"I was pointing at greens in the afternoon can get bumpy and you think you've made no parts and you look and you're gaining strokes in the feet. You're like, okay, maybe all of us had a hard time, right? So it's a little bit conditional to where you're at. Well, we love to make jokes about how broadcasters always say the word perspective whenever they have any kind of mention of a tour player having a child. If you're having one on the way or just have one, they always just say perspective perspective. Your play was great and it got even better after having a baby and that does not happen to everyone. How did you manage to get even better during that time period? You know, I'll credit to Kelly. She always said, actually, she told me and even this past year, before she got pregnant, she was like, I believe you're going to win your first major when you become a father. And I'm like, God, I hope it comes before. You know what I mean? Like, I want to win it as soon as possible. But all credit to her, she saw something, you know? Maybe contrary to people, people's image of me. I'm a very responsible person that takes care of the people around them, right? I'm the only person who's in his own bachelor party had to be the one to behave because everybody else wasn't going to behave. I know I couldn't count on them. So I've been almost like not a dad, but like a big brother, to a lot of my friends when certain situations, right? Dedicated responsible person. So I think she always saw that me being a dad would almost give me somebody or something else to play for more than just myself. And to a point she was right. It's something we're both looking forward to for a very long time. And she had such a good pregnancy all the things got to be said. Yeah, no problem. She was actually happier pregnant. He was one of the few people that ever get that. And that only made it easier for me. The fact that there's no stress on her, there's no stress on me. She was as happy as can be right as this one is variable for me to think about when I'm playing. And when he was born, he was everything went so well. He was so healthy that, you know, I just went to play. It was hard in Augusta, because it was the first week in, you know, he was two days old and I had to leave to go play the masters. And it was a little bit odd in that sense, but after the PGA kind of started internalizing it. And not so much what you're playing is almost when I'm done playing. Again, you said perspective and humility. Just because when he sees me, he couldn't care any less if I shot 61, 65 or 85. He looks at me and expects that. And has made it so much easier for me to flip my switch to where I see him and dad, I'm husband, I'm John, I'm having a good time and then go off his secondary, whatever sovereign over. I feel like even if I knew before, it really puts again into perspective, what's important in life. And while I'll still get upset when I miss a shot on the golf course, once I'm done playing golf, I'm done with my round and I'm done doing what I had to do. It's over, you know, flip a switch, we're smiling more happy. You won't affect my mood of the golf course. What I do on the golf course. And that's I think the biggest blessing could have given me. I've always been pretty good at keeping it separate, but after losing the tournament, it does make it a lot easier to process. Not that I ever want to feel like that again, but it definitely helps just because again, everybody has a badly at the office. There's nobody else's fault for yours. And your child's still respect you to be dead and be the person he wants you to be, right? So it's a blessing in that sense. He's giving me the blessing of perspective and for a 26 year old who thought already had a pretty good grasp on it, which made it that much better. And so yeah, you win in your third major start since becoming a dad, you win the U.S. open at Torrey pines and you mentioned you're 26 years old. So I admit that this question feels kind of absurd to ask from a media perspective, but I'm wondering how you felt where you starting to feel the pressure at all to get your first major championship. Had you felt that either internally or externally in any way prior to winning at Torrey? Internally. Yeah. Yeah, I've wanted to do it. And when you're high ranked and I'm winning tournament both in PGA Tour and European tour and to be fair, I hadn't really even been in contention in a Sunday up until that one. Yeah, maybe on the second, the last group at 6 shots back. Like I had never I've had to some backdoor top tennis like I did akio wall like I did at the masters. Yeah, at the end of the day, I am top ten, but I came from behind and I had a great final round. I was getting tired of not being in contention, right? I understand the thing you get them put on that list of best players to never win a major real quickly. But I hadn't even had a chance. So in my mind, I knew I just needed to have the chance and I knew I was ready. I think the hardest part was Thursday and Friday for me to not shoot myself about the tournament. When you're standing over putts on the 71st and 72nd holes,.

"jon rahm" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Panned, like many things have widely criticized The runner. In the 10th inning on second base. The seven inning doubleheaders, you know, widely criticized stuff, but when you run a monopoly, don't worry about that. Really. You do what you do, and the people adjust and that's what's happened in all sports. The rule changes, and that's what's happened here. So not overly surprising. Good first set Djokovic and Barry Teeny They are at 65 Djokovic in the first set. And we will keep you up to date on Wimbledon as the morning progresses. We also have the Scottish Open in golf and a good leader board there, and that's only Mildly interesting for those of us that like golf, because this week is the open championship at Royal ST George's beginning on Thursday, and a lot of the favorites. Like Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas. Xander softly. I don't know if he's a favorite, but he's somebody to watch Matthew Fitzpatrick. Some pretty good names on the first page of the leaderboard doesn't look like any of those guys will win this tournament, but they're playing. Well and playing and tuning up for the open championship, which begins on Thursday. So we look forward to that We are Uh, I really enjoyed a regular season baseball game last night. It's hard when you root for a team to know how a game is viewed nationally, and I know that baseball in large part Especially this season and last season in the Covid shortened year. Has been ignored by a lot of you fans. Except for perhaps the local team, you root for your old team. But if you're not an Astros a Yankees fan last night in the national game, you know, I just don't know that you're Glued to it or You know, really entertained by. It'll be interesting to see how that game rate nationally. We know there are a lot of Yankee fans and some Yankee haters and the Astros are the Astros and have a good baseball team. We're having another good year. I don't know how it will rape nationally. So I hesitate to talk too much about it. Just to say that we had, uh, the season high in pictures by a By any picture at 129 for your cold last night. And because our all this Chapman is struggling He did not come out of the night and they let coal pitch a complete game, which is rarity in itself. And it was just great drama near the end of that game because it was one nothing on a judge home run, and because that one nothing as you. Hockey fans know, you know one mistake and it's 11, so it doesn't take much. It's uh, it's more like hockey or soccer when you get in the late innings in a one run game. And You're on the road. Of course, it's a walk off opportunity for the home team. So there was good drama. It was really good drama, and the Yankees had been struggling and they had been scuffling and They Looked like they needed the game and coal, of course, coming off the Spider attack controversy and him basically admitting that he rubs up the baseball with something Where has in the past. Certainly not denying it, which was refreshing in itself that he didn't just Dismissed the question and say no. All that added to the entry, you know, can he off too bad starts in Iraq and he pitched against this good Houston team. And can he Survive. And of course he did more than that, and one nothing win. And they didn't have to go to Chapman. But I'll tell you what drives you crazy right now, and I'd love your commentaries on it. At 855 to 1 to four. CBS is the dynamic of regular seasons and how, uh Teams are so two faced about it and the Yankees this weekend, a good example because Luke Voight was really hot on this road trip, which started in Seattle. And he had a five hit game, the first of his career and played very well and he got hit on the hand. On Thursday. But when Aaron Boone was asked why he wasn't playing Friday night, he said, all his hand is fine. We just thought he needed a day. And you know that excuse across sports from pro sports about players in regular season games, particularly in this case of first basement. Needed a day. You know when they're under pressure when they're way behind Boston in the American League East when they've had a miserable season to this point in terms of where their expectations were. When the Yankees were the second biggest favorite, find the Dodgers in Las Vegas to win the World Series. And they are whatever four games over 500. So it has been Uh, tough sledding for them all year and for them to go into that game, their hottest hitter sitting because Is it because we got hit in the hand? Oh, no, that has nothing to do with it. It's because, you know, we just feel like he needs a day here. What What And then, of course he plays last night, underscoring that he could have played Friday night. And Just the opposite happens. They get in a situation where Cole has never gone 129 pitches in his career. No one in baseball has thrown 129 pitches in one game this year. And you're acting like a desperate team in the middle of July before the All Star break in, leaving Your ace, Your $300 million guy. In the game. For the ninth inning,.

"Was absolutely secondary for you. John the way you were informed like that. It just wasn't fair to you. They could do that privately. Did anybody ever apologize to you for that. So the recent for that is. Because i had tested positive in people i believe from the broadcast new or they were about to find out that will meet to go ahead and shake his hand on the crowd or or or interact with the crowd now. Being on the in kobe tracing list had really been like mindful of not doing any of that and the only basically moment what i forgot it was after finishing third round i had played so good that i completely forgot what i have been gone through in my plane. Party's hands now. Both of them had covert. So i feel like he was okay but You know they didn't want me to go in the crowd. And i didn't want me to go inside to sign my scorecard so it was a bit of a confusing idea. And that's why they told me in the spot now known that is the second time they put me in vulnerable spot national to be on the same hole on the same tournament. Felt a little bit more personal but they did what they had to do it. And yes the people in charge. They told me that it could have been handled better. But also i'm listening to faldo and nance they didn't know and they went. They ended their broadcast and we saw the emotion. Like i thought the worst. I thought something had happened in your family. And i react like it i guess. Yeah but at that point at played so good and you know that he was the boss ability despite that i had to leave and and just everything combined the fact that my parents were coming in monday right after the tournament and i hadn't seen in a while and a lot emotions got mixing there together and it was just upsetting. Because you don't expect that to happen. I was the first one through all this to happen. i mean it is what it is. I mean. my wife didn't even if you people. She thought something happened to my parents as well. So it's Yeah i think in that sense is where things that could have handled could have been handled. Better go back to the us. Open and phil mickelson's on the driving range. And i thought that was a cool moment. That was just hanging there just with your family. Yeah he of state. I've been fortunate to be able to stay a few times to watch him win. I did in mexico at the pga. He broke a pretty impressive record in. He came in and and took care of kelly. Kelly was to say a nervous wreck. The stressing holding the baby and he was helping Cheers to the range. I don't even know where they got the chairs problem. He took care of her and and and he did an amazing job. That's shows what a quality man has. What did you save from the final round. Where i do. What did you save a like. Do you save anything from the final round and keep it separate your scorecard. You get that. I get that you don't get the scorecard i have no idea. I think that trophies enough to say oh. Yeah that is good. Yeah i mean. I was looking for something for you to donate to the man cave here. John your socks or shoes or something. My shoes outfit hat love the. Usda took it for them.

That means you get a breakfast ball. You hit two to tee shots off the first tee. If you're lucky there's a lot of times they wanna keep you keep it moving here but i think ballybunion had a at a cemetery at the end of the first fairway so you could actually hit it into the cemetery.

"It seems like he's got to make a point and the point only works if he's suddenly better armlock putter than he was. You know normal putter. So so far. He's not making a point he's also not putting well i know he's trying to play the long game on that one but it's got to be frustrating to change something right before torrey pines his hometown tournament. You to the to win a major and then did not go straight and change something up. He did it to himself. Yeah it's got to be frustrating for not to work dues top ten punter before he started doing it. Rory mcilroy t seven good week bad week. Great week oh interesting. It was a great week for rory and that surprises you because coming out of my mouth the guy finishes t seven but he was in the lead as he made the turn four under and the reason. It's a great week is because the guys had some major bugaboos. He is really really struggled. Kind of finding and losing his swing throughout major championships. It hasn't it's resulted in him. Missing cuts it's resulted in him. Back door top tanning. This was not a backdoor top ten. It was the first time it's felt like he was actually in contention. He had a share of the lead on sunday when it mattered point if he wanted to hit or if if he made great gulf shots down the streets shot two under par in the back nine. He's going to a play off with john wrong. That score was out there It's of course disappointing. That when it got really really really real it didn't work out for him But i think there's a lot free. There's a lot for him. There's a there's a huge difference between a door top ten and whenever this week was for him he still lost almost two and a half strokes to the field of this putter. I think a lot of that took place today. Guy was not good with his putter today. And not good to the point where it's like. Oh he's missing that putt that he you know that he just hit. He's missing that by three feet. Two feet putts. That don't even flirt with the whole. That's concerning but otherwise great week for roy. There is a moment where Let's see russell henley. It just made bogey at six. And they were coming off the sixth green together under the seventy. Suddenly there was a four way tie for first including rory and then he smoked a tee shot down the seventh hit wedge Really close and it seemed like wow. This might be happening. it might be on instead. He missed that. Putt he never really got Never really was in the lead again and and three-putted on eleven which seemed pretty unforced made a horrible double at twelve which was partly bad. Luck But yeah the wheels fell off. But this you're right. This was a front door top ten out a back door top ten. Have you ever like been close to someone who has a very serious injury in surgery. I had to rehab it. I think rory's rehabbing his golf game. And i think i think he had some point had surgery.

"Great prizes. The Whole thing that goes from seven in the morning all the way through a banquet in the evening, and I know on behalf of the station. I can speak for management. Not entirely. I can't sign for management again speak for management say You are most cordially invited if you want to. If you want a tent, you know I'm coming to Chicago. The following? Um like, four days after that, maybe I can start my trip early. Pine Creek out in wind field, which is in the Western suburbs, By the way, Speaking of the western suburbs, How about Kevin Streelman, the pride of Warrenville South High School? He's too under. He's tied for ninth. He's only three off the lead, so give a shout out to Kevin Streelman. But yes, going back to the WLS. Well, what is it called the WLS Classic. Links and drinks, links and drinks. Um, if I know you, John Howell. I think there might be more drinks than Lynx O Not while I'm on duty. John. Oh, okay. Yeah, no, of course. And will you be? Will you be considered to be on duty while you're playing and is someone else going to do your show that day? This is all to be determined. In fact, I asked him earlier today. Kim is going to play and her husband's a really good player to I. I asked her. I said, Has anybody told you you're going to perhaps be doing traffic that afternoon? On site. Are we going to do this show out at Klein Creek Golf Club? I imagine if we are there has to be some sort of planning involved in that. We can't just show up with the two tin cans and a string. So why not planning has never been a partisan of the whole make up just kind of You've got to kind of wing it, John. You know, my show is loose enough. I'm not sure that I should even attempt to show after being on the links all day. I don't think that's a wise decision. I really don't appreciate the invite. And I will see if I can start my trip early and and make it because I would love to to see you and see the listeners. Well, you can get more information. Obviously, If you remember we have a website. It's double dale same dot com. You can look for the information there if you'd like. I want to ask you before we get going and I know we have to get going. But who do you think is going to win this tournament? What are your thoughts about the lineup that you've seen so far? After two days, I was just going to ask you the same question. But I'll go first. And you conclude now, now that Mickelson's out, I've lost my interesting kept A and E shambo. I realized talented. I admire what they've done. Physically, you know to themselves and for the game. It's fun to watch them. Um, but I'm looking here at the you know, Top 10 or 15 guys still in contention after tell you I'm going to go for I'm going to go for Bubba Watson. I like your style. I like Baba to. I'm very happy that he, um, you know, he shot four under today. So he's three under for the tournament. He's only two off the lead, and Bubba opened up. He's opened up before about his his anxiety issues and his depression issues. And I think that's very forthright of Bubba Watson. He's 12 Masters, but it would be great to see him when the U. S open. I think my pick would be Jon Rahm. Jon Rahm is currently tied with Bubba. They're both tied for force at three under. And of course, we saw Jon Rahm have to withdraw from that memorial tournament in Ohio, Um, after the third round because they told him he had covid and and then he's been isolating for the past 10 days. And Jon Rahm is just a great guy and I would pick Jon Rahm to win this U S open tournament Auditory pines. I'm only saying Bubba Watson that because I think he is going to win, but I want him to win. So you take you take around and I'll take Watson. I would want. I would love to see Kevin Streelman win the guy from the western suburbs. I would love to see him win and he could do it. He's been in contention several times this year, and he's only three shots. Al off the lead. Who else? I don't like the shambo? I don't like kept to, um Rory is currently one over, so he's six off the lead. I would always love to see Rory. Me too Us Open And or how about Richard Bland? Wouldn't it be great to see 48 year old Richard Bland with his potbelly when the U. S open? Kim Gordon. Do you have any thoughts on who you like? And who you think might win this weekend? Well, Dempsey and I probably just gave Jon Rahm the kiss of death because that's who I was hoping would win, too, right? Right now, Kim, I know you're from Kentucky and your guy, Justin Thomas. Yeah, He's like, plus one right, plus one. Yeah, Justin is plus one, and he's hanging in there. Hes through 12 holes, So he's only he's only six off the lead, So I know you're a fan of Justin Thomas. I am and also a Rory fan. But I really do want John Rhonda when I feel like, you know, He got her head a rough way to go last. He's a new dad and I think his parents came over from Spain. He hadn't seen them in the year because of Covid. And then they had to delay seeing him because he was isolated. Um, so it would be. I think it would be a really nice feel good story to have Jon Rahm wind, definitely, but I hope that With Kim and I picking Jon Rahm. As Kim said, I hope that's not the case of death. Well, here's as good a chance to anybody, certainly talented guy and never really headed to many effects from being positive as far as Covid, so he's swinging them while so We shall see.

"First book takes the bet so in the spirit of things. Are you good battery. Different with the books paying out the jon rahm bets before the tournament is over and saying oh it was a bad beat. He was going to win it anyway. Here's your money fire way. Let me just preface by saying earlier putting one stat on the table. We're talking drum number three in the world. Although kind of a sneaky under the radar number three i think fair to say and the pre-tournament osbour- were i think roughly twelve to one on average. Okay so i'm the better. I'm the better. I am delighted if i'm getting my money. Paid out. I'm getting to say credit. That's fairly obvious. Are you mad if you're a better at a book and your not getting paid but someone else is at another book. Are you gonna leave that book because you don't get paid. Yes certainly little ticked off and probably would be on social media saying hey so and so doing this writing to customer service or whatever but i think what this boils down to. This is kind of a crystallization Sports are needed to decide what they are. Are they going to play by their own house. Rules or are they going to continue or herb began on the marketing bandwagon. Is it a marketing decision. Purely or is it a decision. Where i mean like in a state that has rules or gaming control boards or anything kinda like nevada's takes a lot to just very off the rules. I mean you're a rules guy you you have a law degree you understand though a gallery of picking and choosing when you can veer and say you know what pay this one but maybe not paid the next one or or you didn't change the house rules. How can you pay this like. Is that a factor or is it just purely a marketing thing. Pay these people. We don't have that much handle on it. Put the money in their account. So they're happy and they bet more or they stay with us. Yeah i don't the i. I guess i know most of the regulations at play here but i don't think this is any sort of regulatory decision. This is a house rules. Decision and most of the regulations and say would would make reference to. The house is allowed to have house rules and and so i think it boils down to that. It's a marketing decision today. Do we want to be perceived publicly. What how do we want to to know what we're doing especially compared with our competition but also a down the road what our expectations going to be. And that's what the. That's what i think is the biggest question mark in all this and decision to be made end. Read one quote now from. I'm sure when venture into circus for spoke at one moment or another. It was matt metcalf their director Whatever is senior title is quote. I've shied away from any payouts that involves subjectivity. Never leads to a good place. Long-term from a customer perspective. That said i'm happy for the people who receive payment and can understand the perspective of those companies choosing to do so so. I think this is one of those moments. Where you kinda got a look at yourself and decide what you are. And that's what they're doing. I can say this nevada. I mean it circa. They had a yes. No on every goal from you can pay than the people that had no one and benefited from his withdrawal. So you know. Do you resent that payment.

"Dear longer Putt to win a golf tournament but a whole earlier same bowl, the eighteenth dustin. Johnson needed almost an equally difficult bendy long. Putt to just stay in the tournament to force a playoff and man what a pot he made, and that's the most excited. I. Think I've ever. Seen Dustin Johnson he gets into a tie situation forcing a playoff. He does the Saturday night fever finger point to the air and then sort of a pseudo fist pump I was like, Oh, my God. He's going to have a heart attack here he so excited right unfortunately lost to Jon Rahm who made a sixty six foot bender to win the second tournament of the Fed ex playoffs there's a there's a way bigger story than this playoff victory that run. The top thirty move on to the final tournament next week in Atlanta in east like. If you make the top thirty, steve? Okay. And there is a lot of drama in this thing because guys are on the bubble right? Some guys were way out and they play themselves back into the top thirty. Top thirty Steve. It's it's a tremendous. Bonus okay. You get you get all four majors the next year you get the obvious you go into the final there's a couple of other things that happened with too. So. Guys are playing for their life for on the bubble. So before I get to the drama of Dustin Johnson Jon Jon Rahm Mackenzie Hughes. The Canadian kid okay. Is I had an unbelievable tournament this one. Okay. Brute of a golf course stevie brute of a golf course. Four under wins in a playoff. Okay and last week was thirty under. Okay. So does doesn't makes it ended up playoff prior to that they start to and they love Steve You, know the high drama of it they they love to say, okay see this guy right here got two holes left. Okay if he finishes par par. His life changes dramatically. Okay. If he doesn't. He's back selling clothes in some in a gap store. Okay. You know what I mean. Sure. Sure enough as they come down to the so you've got the fall in the final groups here. Ron Plays unbelievably shoot six or seven under some gets in the house at four-under Dustin is. Sort of leading or tied the whole day drops back couple of bogeys. Dozens to back on the Fifteenth T. Par, five birdies it. So he's one back. Pars sixteen seventeen and so he's one act Jon Rahm. Who's in the house? And Dustin ends up with A. Forty three triple breaker downhill putt no chance okay. Anyway hits this PUTT Stevie and Bang Bang Bang things sort of kicking around a bunch of different ways and then just funnels the last twenty feet funnels towards the whole and goes in. It didn't look like he had nearly the weight that he needed for that ball to get there but it just kept on trickling and trickling. Right, so now they go to the playoffs, the two of them and I've got to admit Steve Okay I know. Believe me when I say this. So when I watched us to make that PUTT. Guess a lot of its against forty three feet Steve Okay and a break some bunch of different ways. Okay Hail Mary Air we go and I thought it was kind of line but the ball just sorta like like it funneled towards the whole right? No matter what side he was on and anyway at the time I didn't think that Assad. Kicked in unbelievable I'm jumping up and down the G. Men phones me right away I told you I told everyone here Jimmy. He was GonNa make it okay and. So when Jon Rahm they both had tee shots on the first playoff hole dustin hits it about thirty feet left of the pin and Jon Rahm hits it over the to the very back corner the green sixty six feet away. And I was saying to myself. All he has to do is get it to the top of that Ridge because the balls are they funneling in. Now Hello. Put together there which he did and the thing trickles in. Sixty six footer and Dustin leaves his two inches outside. So big drama however, Stevie. Off Off, they go tag on. Stevie. grits. I gotta go right back. I'm just wrapping up a podcast. Of only back. Look at you putting the G. Man on hold for our little podcast I like it. So Anyway Stevie back to what I was talking about. There's always these stories of guys aren't going to win the tournament however who's on the bubble while Mackenzie Hughes Canadian kid. Okay. So they flashed to him. Because they love these stories and that's what sports is all about. He's in the middle of the fairway on eighteen. And Par-four. After his tee shot. And if Pars here, okay. Mackenzie, Hughes gets into the top thirty. Okay now Steve The minimum the minimum, their the thirtieth guy problem. He makes one hundred grand next week record in there, and then they lay on all the bonuses. Okay. Makes all the major bubble right So if he makes a par, he's in okay. And I'm going Oh my God. You know kids are Canadian. Chunks it into the bunker stevie short short sides himself to the whole. It's a front rate pin and he hits it in the front rate trap. Okay. No. No, and so they kept the cameras on them. The whole time. So he's got a five footer slider downhill. Braking to his left to try and make this thing and super fast pot and if he does, it's it's a life changer for there's no doubt about it, and now he's won before the tour. This is huge. This is huge to to get in the final thirty of the fedexcup. That'd be one of the most nervous Putz. He's probably ever had in his life. You know you bogey seventeen. and. Then you go out and you know, no, I might bogey another one to miss the top thirty that That kind of has a double whammy to it's enough to miss the top thirty. But to come in bogey bogey to miss by a stroke would have socked him through. Sucked. So huge huge huge Putt for him to make. So off, they go the thirty guys. Next week. So the way they do it is if you're ranked through all this points system when the Fedex which you know I just can't stand but the way they're doing it this year for the second time. If, you're leading the Fedex points Dustin. Johnson is John Rama's second. You go into that tournament starting at minus ten. For the lead and John Rams minus eight, and then I think it single shots down from there. There might be maybe a few guys at minus seven, and so it's a much better way. So. If you're thirtieth, I think you're even par. So you're ten shots off. Okay. I think that's fair. Doesn't waste what you've done to that. Like you have Dustin. Johnson is an eleven stroke win in the first tournament while there should be something for that. You should be getting some love for being dominated not just everybody starting with a fresh start like Mackenzie use. For example, with all due respect he's the thirtieth place guy for a reason he hasn't played as well so far in these playoffs. So Guy Dustin Johnson should have a sizable advantage going into a one deal tournament right? The only thing I might tweak it with because I was I was carving it up, and then the guy who's in the note said, well, the this is the way the players voted on it for that final tournament. Okay. It was the players of world on the only thing is. So. Dj. So in the first playoff tournament the first of the last week he wins okay, and then this week he ties for first then loses in a playoff. So no matter what he did this week Steve Okay unless he fell on his face in. His head fell off He's GonNa. He's GonNa be I going. Okay into into this weekend and have the two shot lead. But he almost wins the tournament I'm going no matter what he does he's only getting two shot lead. Right. Right. And yet if he wins two in a row, I'm going maybe maybe it's a bit a sliding scale you know. Maybe. You get another two shots. You know you're you're going by for anyway is not perfect, but it's a lot of drama. So next week is the final thirty guys fifteen minutes TV to the winner. I know tiger. Woods. Never got under par all week four straight rounds over-par and he's now focusing on the US Open. His season is over and It's weird season over US Open in three weeks what Weirdest season ever anyways Stevie. Very exciting for Mackenzie Hughes. Huge deal huge deal and guys career with this fedexcup thing. So any what he's going to begin about how many strokes off the lead when he's probably I think they're even The leaders at minus ten right and the guys in the bottom or even I think. So everyone else's in between there. So imagine having to give away ten strokes to guys like Dustin Johnson Yard. RAHM thanks for coming. Anyway Golf Update Anyway. I know that we're in the Middle Stanley. Cup Playoffs but you mean, I love us some golf. When we come back on the show, we will get to some hockey. Controversial hits in the Boston Tampa Series Matthew. Chuck is sick about the criticism of his teammates will get to those stories and more after these words..
Coronavirus and golf: How the professional tours are affected
"Let me ask you this about the tour and like all this stuff is going because you talked about the guys being on the golf course and. I really don't blame these news. We try to play golf because if they look if I stay away from people doing nothing else then I might as well get at here but like how do you think the tour is going to be affected by all of this there are affected a bunch of one? They still haven't even postponed or canceled events. That scheduled may twenty first the ink at colonial. And you know one of the events that that they're talking about trying to move since they moved. Somebody majors the US Open now where it got moved. Its date is open. So Jack Nicklaus tournament the memorial wants to move out of its slot into where the US Open was but it's still scheduled to go on in. That's the last week of. May which doesn't seem possible to that's going to happen. They hope and help or like the idea that the US Open is saying. Now we're not going to be here. Is somebody else's like that all right? Yeah or tournament like the open championship which isn't scheduled till July is like we out all next year in. May there like an eighty news like Nah. And that's the thing Bo you know man. I'm I'm optimistic. I try to see the silver lining. I tried to look at the good in everything but realistically to think we're going to be playing in June is just it. I don't see it happening. I just don't see us being ready to play golf in six weeks when there are still places that are on complete lockdown. I don't understand how they think that they're going to pull this off now even in my opinion first week of August which is when the PGA championship is supposed to happen. Even that seems to me as a more hopeful than realistic thing. Not only because we don't know where we be as a country as far as where this pandemic virus is by then. We have no idea whether it is going to be a phase two or phase three and the fact that the PGA championship is still scheduled to be held in San Francisco. Yes I if xactly Gulf has never been the first to do anything so to think that golf would be the first sport to come back. Golf is a sport that is more image conscious than the NFL. That I know that sounds crazy but think about this. You are not going to hear the golf as Elliot Nothing. Have you ever heard of a Golfer have you heard of a Golfer getting a DUI other than Tiger Woods? 'cause it was tiger so he's bigger than just the Gulf News but have you ever heard of a PGA tour pro given the Dui. Like you think it ain't happened right exe- so the thought of Gov being the Guinea pig like man. We'll bring all our guys back. Because you know golf will be the easiest thing for social distancing. Yes inside the ropes. It's easy for social distancing Hauer player's GonNa get tournament how litter power. They literally getting from the airplane to hotel. Where we're staying. Where are they going to empty? Who who changing the sheets right and then when you get to the gut like getting a rental car you can rent a car from somebody. I'll be working rental counter and then when you get to the golf course you just pulling out in the Congo and straight to the driving rains. You're going into the locker room who's WHO's opening locker room door. Who's working in you? Go to the bathroom cleaning up. Who changed sort of paper or you won't eat. Who's WHO's GonNa Food? Who's bring the food who stole in the trash out like? Who's doing the dishes like those? And that's not you ain't got to the courts yet now. You get course okay. We're GONNA put this on TV. Well who's filming? You've got to have a camera do. Okay Yeah we got a camera guy but the camera guys not the producer. Oh Yeah. Where's the camera picture on bow to? We need court to go to the trump who's trump who drove the trump who's producer who's directed where those people at Lake everything that goes into a production of a golf broadcast. Ken Be even bigger than Football Basketball Baseball and hockey. Because at least those venues are all a one static place so you could put cameras up in a stadium and field ain't GonNa Change. It doesn't work like that with golf when one week. The golf course looks like this in the next week is completely different. Everything gotta move is a traveling circus so to think that golf would be the one to go. Hey we'll come out. I will do a I. The Gulf was the second to last the shut it down. It was golfing NASCAR so in the long run when Gov comes back there I think of is gonNA come back without fans like I think every other sport will at first and I think golf will do okay in the long run. But I think we're GonNa wait longer than what we think for golf to come back. But and here's my silver lining. This is also where I love. What the Masters did where the Masters said we're coming back in November. The masters is the last thing on the schedule. Movember Ninety two fifteen and again talk about buffer nate. Just out not only did they come back. And we're GONNA do this in November. They also have already said. If you've got a ticket Komo come on in you know other sport has been no other waning. Tried to say only Augusta will be like not only. Are we putting the masses on? We're letting the Patriots into but we won't make that Egg Salad. We're going to make those divisional tea. Sandwiches come gifts on and I think November. Not only is realistic. But I love that. The masters is at least for me. The biggest beacon at the end of this dark tunnel. I tell you this though. Y'All come back I ain't GonNa meet you there right like they say like they just go be somebody out there. That's like now I'm good is somebody's wife. That's like yo you ain't going out on this trip like his eight nine. This ain't the Olympics though. That's what's funny. I remember when Owen down for the Olympics. Zeka you know guys were like I know plenty of dudes whose girlfriends and wives would like if you go. Don't come on you know. He you know he might put us in. The spot and jazz were like. I'm not even going to go I. I'm any worth you know. I'M I won't be happy home really but the masters though let's say right now there's plenty of dudes if that came down at the masters they are going to be like. Yo suitcases right over. She she she she. She want me to call Uber. Or because I'm going to the mass you don't WanNa go. You Ain't gotta go but one of us is going well. That tate is last thing I would ask you because I just thought of this while we were here. Are these golfers paying their caddies out like how I still pay my housekeeper? Even though she's not keeping the House I got the same thing Nancy so most golfers yes are trying to take care of their caddies in some way or form. We have to remember how cat is get paid. Caddies get a weekly paycheck and then you get a percentage of what the Golfer wins. But if the government's not winning anything where it becomes difficult is for. We all know the big super rich dude by all the big name guys like rory no Tiger Dustin Johnson of Brooks Kapka you name it Jordan Speed Rickie Fowler just Thomas Jon Rahm like those dudes of yes. They're going to be taken care of their dude with the guys who have a tough time on rookies. So the guys who came from the korn-ferry tour or the guys that this is only their second or third year on the PGA tour and they made them millions like those they could be struggling a little bit to one of the guys who I'm friends with a WHO's academy and doesn't caddy for a big named guys told me that his guy is sending them a little bit just a little bit every week just to help everybody still got bills and whatnot. So I'm sure that there are some guys that are not in a position to do that so there are probably some caddies that are hurt. But that's the world we live in right now so everybody's anxious to kind of get back to work pay
Alfonso Ribeiro twists our brains on golf
"All right folks are joined by a very special guest. Alfonso Ribeiro Big Time Golf Guy so you just walked into Barcelo. Hq I Kind of impressions walking into Barstool checking on her office. All new. I mean the last time to Barstool it was like a it was literally did not look like this. How about we go there? We just going to be pleasant. It was It was an office been was like just not really new new. Feels like a little bit of a facade like this nice and like state of the art and it's not really us just put snow it it did you listen. Everybody needs to go to work and feel like they're going to a nice place. Okay you know what I mean you can talk about whatever you want. It's gotta you'll nice going to work today. What he's saying is the last place was a dump and couldn't believe that he was brought there and that that he likes plays a lot more? I'M GONNA go with the last part of that. Okay because speaking to work got a couple of things going on a couple of things on funniest video absolutely how you know so like the greatest Family show in American television history. Right like its thirtieth season iconic for the Shell my fifth season as the host. And like what's better than watching people do really dumb stuff stuff hurt themselves but what Asta laugh at them by sending us the video so you get the approval of them to laugh at them and and we get to laugh over and over and over again. And I get to go to work and I actually one of the things that I'll do is so I typically have to do the voice overs for all the videos at that net. Need my voice over. Okay okay but I won't watch any of the ones that I don't have to do voice over on so that when I'm actually at the taping and I enjoy them for the first time you're right at the tapings aping and I'm like this way. It's like it feels less like work right. You go to go and it was like wow didn't see that one and can laugh and have a great time so I actually enjoy the taping and as much as the audience gets to do you ever slip up like Oh shit. It's just a good at that because kids so I've learned how not to allow that slip to come out. I always say I know my audience and when I'm when I'm there I'm pretty good at making sure that because we have some kids in the audience. I've become America's Dad. There have to be very responsible. It's amazing my gallstone hasn't made it onto that show yet. It just put it out with. Just keep sending US videos. We'll get it on you get one with a wedge in its everyone's laugh back actually on on Sunday eh the. At and T. I actually wanted to see whether someone got one of my swings on video. 'cause it absolutely would make it onto my show where where it was on. The fourteenth holds a par-five long par five and I'm trying to like possibly see whether I can get there in two so I'm really really digging into one and my right foot completely slips out onto downswing I'm talking airborne it's completely gone right and I still hit the ball but I was on one leg almost down on the ground and I actually hit the ball. So the two the pros and the group because my pro was Kevin Na right and the other the pro is j b Holmes and both of them were like in they were shell shocked because they were like okay. Are you all right. And I'm like and I'm walking gingerly because I'm like I don't know if I'm alright yet Then they go. How did you make contact right like? How did you literally literally you were falling down and you still hit the ball on an ethnic? I like that things eh but it really was. I said to everybody the gallery. WHO's watching anybody? Get that on tape tape. So you're good player. You're scratch. Is that right well. They had me as a three okay. So so you've played golf in some in some big circles right so you're Alphonso Ribeiro your but at the at and T. Pablo pro-am pro-am it's it's TV it's legitimate PJ toward crowds. What's kind of your nerve level on the first tee? You're on the seventeen. Maybe more conic shot. What's your nerve you know? There's probably only one shot at Pebble Beach that I am fearful of It's the second shot on eight right light. That is the only shot where you're like. Okay I don't have this. This is GonNa talk to me about it and we follow him about it and play the whole Goddamn golf course. You know it's a train wreck where we can't bring one hundred none of us for playing in a couple of weeks for the US Open. He's trying little fairy on a in Richmond right flying on a on the fly right behind the flag as for Mr Berry missed. The net. Green is great work. It was great because and I was on my way to triple digits so of course I'm walk through seven holes. Okay you knew where this round was. Nobody's lying along the best part of that is your only through seven holes right this aide whole and you haven't even gotten to the teeth of the golf course you know. That's the easy part of the grass. You get one two three four or five. You're like Ooh and you're doing like if I par in I can shoot ninety uh-huh and you're not going to say the only confident walk. I had all day was walking up to the Green on eight. I had my shoulders up is in my head was held high and I felt good but the rest of the day absolutely you know we had a twenty five mile. An hour rose wind no going from left to right right into the water. Yeah not good. So it's one of those shots where you're like. Okay where am I aiming. That's far let's into I can play it from the left rough. Can't play that from the Pacific. No right you know I was I was left. What's what's the dichotomy like with if the pros and you've got you know the guys played different? teases it awkward at all. No it's it's I'll say this like they're I'm sure there are groups and I've heard many stories the of playing in groups where because it's too amateurs into prose where guys really are not enjoying playing with those amateurs and there are guys on tour who alike I am not playing the. At and T.. I can't stand it like it's just playing with the amateurs but like this group that we had this year which was my self with with Kevin A- and then it was Michael Pena with a guy named Martin trainer. Right and Michael the opinion I are pretty much the same for even though he was getting seven shots. I was getting three but we when we play at home. We are about the same so when you play with guys. We're actually indecent golfers right. Then it's not bad because he's not like all right. Let's go look for his ball. Not that right. The flow of the game feels like it's just a normal for some going out to play and it's not so bad for them. Because I even sent cavanaugh a text message yesterday kind Hannah saying you know a dude. Thanks for an amazing week. We made the cut. We finished nineteenth right like out of one hundred and fifty six teams. That was awesome. He was in there grinding. Like trying to get the team to to to make the cut and you know it was just a really really enjoyable week and he was like dude. Thank you for being the way you were because you knew when to talk and make it light but you also knew when to leave me alone right. Let me have of my space when I needed it and I'm good at that like I'm the dude in the group who's like we're not talking to him some people don't that'll that I'm not going to be the one to tip it. Everyone feels they look at Jon Rahm by the way sitting at dinner. Just don't go near him. L. People for one degrees. That's his nickname like but you know but that's what I was doing you know. That's but that's what happens when it's guys who know how to play golf right who play golf and been in that circumstance stands. This is my fifth year the. At and T.. I've been up at the American Century Tournament now for maybe fourteen fifteen years I get it like I get how to play golf in front of people. It doesn't affect me right like you asking the question earlier like does it like. Does it affect you. Like going to that I T- I have no nerves. Did it affect you. I the first time I absolutely. Yeah but now it's like maybe maybe after like the fourth or fifth time playing in one of those like bigger tournaments after that I was like I. Nobody cares correct right like we all have this thing in our minds that like. I'm going to go embarrass myself. I'm like no not you know why because I'm so much better than the audience sitting there watching me play golf that they're impressed even if I hit a bad. That shot hit that bad shot right so I'd look at it like oh well they don't care whether I play well or not. I care whether I play well or not. Well well I know that if I'm in the moment and I'm actually all messed up about it but I'm not gonNA play. Well right I gotta get into the same space where I've had some of my best rounds and all of my best rounds of been when I'm like. Yeah whatever you gotTa Find Your Happy Place Right just like you're not caring right. The moment you care is the moment you get tents the moment your tents is the worst Gulf swing right. So I've certainly got myself to where I can just kind of be in the moment I want you know. Pick a target small targets right. No no no. Don't hit over there to the right. No pick a target hit the target. Don't worry about anything else. You're not gonna hit it there anyway. But at least you're gonNA you're GonNa make a good solid swing with the right effort by familiar with the exact opposite approach of that on the TV. You got a couple of groups backed doc. You know and you're standing in for wherever you think that they care a lot about how your shot goes right. You're standing the biggest fair way in the world and you're just like all right there's OB forty yards left. You can't it'll be and meanwhile correct just pick a small targets a giant fairway even a decent drive. You'll have a good approach. NOPE bodies a train wreck. You don't know how does golf club you're thinking. Oh Oh my God I saw. Nobody cares their phone there and watch it right. Well I I became friendly with Justin rose and he has a putting guru right who works with okay and this. This guy gave our whole little group when when we were all together Some information is called C.. Burn right and I was like okay. Okay well it's a putting thing where if you put a ball on the ground and if you move that ball quickly you're going to see what looks like a burn of a ball on the grass right and I was like what is that like why he goes. Your brain doesn't understand no or don't write. It only understands what it saying doing. So don't hit it left. Your brain heard hit it left right so there's no don't yeah it doesn't it doesn't recognize. Don't right it only recognizes do. Yeah so people say. Don't move your head you're moving your head right. What this guy is saying is his see the burn? If you see the burn you didn't move your head. It has to be an active positive. Thought not a negative thought because there's is no way that your brain understands the negative thought. Why do you always hit it in the water when you look at water if you have to hit the ball over the water like all right? Don't hit it into water. You're the water. Your brain doesn't understand. Don't you have to just don't even worry about the water. See the target and hated at your target. So it's a mental exercise absolutely but it but it becomes a physical thing because see the burn. You didn't move your. I can't tell you over
