Kneepads on for Phil

"You brought up Phil and I'm glad to get because I saw a stat today because the PGA Tour just released their 2023 season. All their events are 44 events. They've gone up to $425 million next year, the price money, okay? Yeah. That is 20 million more than the live next year. The live has 14 events, 405 million. Do you think that every single professional golfer in the entire world that's on a major tour should have their knee pads out for Phil Mickelson sending them $10,000 bottles of wine, whatever the hell he wants it. Yeah, I mean, Mickelson and, I mean, the two, two controversial. Some people would call it a controversial last year, but really Nicholson and Norman, because I mean, the tour, the tour, that tour never happens without Norman, Norman's kind of vendetta with the PGA Tour, right? He tried to hook. He tried to do a similar thing years ago in the PJ tour came up with the wgc to squash it. And then Phil kind of talking about it. And I mean, you can say TV contract, you can say whatever, but purses go up every single year, they don't go up this much though. Like not even close. So I think without a doubt, the better guys, the best guys they know, they know why the purses are going up. They're not idiots. Every single person with a brain knows why purses have gone up on the PGA Tour, but the better guys should really go knee pad nation because they're going to get all these no cut events too, that are basically live events. There are many live events built into the PGA Tour.

US Open Champion Picks

"Because we have a massive event this week. We have the U.S. open. In my opinion, the greatest event of the year, the national championship. We call it the world championship, really. I think it's the strongest field of the year. It's definitely stronger than the masters and the British open. The PGA might be close, but the players, the players in the U.S. open are the two strongest fields of the year. The U.S. opens on the hardest course of the mall. So I think the most deserving champion of the years this week, who you got. This is the U.S. open is always, it always brings somebody that's freaking pretty tough, man. And we'll see the USGA like, we'll just see if they lose their mind. We've had scenarios where like a shinnecock with Mickelson stopping the ball because it's rolling off the green. And then we've had some or Rory one like a congressional where he shot a million under par. So it's going to be interesting to see how the course set up. I heard it's a little quirky, not like a bad test or anything, but ish greens. Just kind of old school, a lot of dog legs, things like that. Sam Burns, I don't even want to call him a dark horse, like I'd love, I'd love for him to win. If I had to pick one guy, one guy, I would pick JT. I would just because him and bones, they won the last major and he's been absolute nails since bones took over for him. And I think he's at the level or the point of his career where he's focusing almost a 100% on majors only. So he would be like my number one guy if I could just choose one, but I like him and burns and then like a super dark horse, I don't know, man. Super dark horse, maybe Sam Stevens or somebody like that. Like he's maybe to make the cut. Wow. That might be a good idea. A good bed. I'm not saying to win and no offense to Sam. I don't know if you can win the U.S. open, but they have those vets to make the Cudi's probably plus 200 or something to make the cut. I bet you that's a good

"Once in his Phil blue moon, he was circumspect and answering pregnant questions. None of which involved his game. For once, Mickelson wasn't talking about how he knows their butchering people and their horrible to women, and it's really sad, but he has a true hero's chance to crush the godforsaken PGA Tour. The bad guys Phil Dustin, a few others, had flown in from London, where they had finished behind no bodies in the inaugural event of the Saudis live tour, which will come to America for 5 events later this year, two of which will be held at Donald J Trump courses, which will stimulate lively, multi pronged protests outside gilded Gates. The good guys who've pledged loyalty to the PGA Tour, Rory, Justin others, had arrived from Toronto after contesting mightily in the Canadian open. A PGA Tour event that Rory had just won for the second year in a row. Justin finishing solo third. The bad guys had just been told basically that they would play PGA Tour golf never more, unless or until they apostatized. The good guys would remain sorely impoverished, but popular with the proletariat as much as golf has a proletariat. All of this, all of this stuff, hit the fan during a tumultuous two weeks of play conducted well clear of fairways and greens. The stuff convened on Monday in Brookline, which is not actually, but essentially the birthplace of good old, fun loving American golf. So to reiterate, while surprisingly Clement of sky and breeze, this Monday was not a kumbaya day. Rory, though, looked fresh and happy, as he strolled his practice round alongside world number two, John I'll never play Liv rom. These lads had a large crowd following, and everything was less fraught than when DJ had toured. At one point, Rory chipped from the rough onto a slanted green and watched the ball gather speed and finish four feet beneath the hole. This being practiced he dropped and tried again. The curve was tighter, and that ball stalled two feet from. He swiped a third time, and his ball popped and rolled 50 feet to target, plop. He needed to remember his landing spot, so he chipped a fourth time. Bingo again. He smiled and the crowd laughed and clapped his one. Everyone forgetting for an instant such things as dismemberment and the dowel becoming a bear that very afternoon. Everyone marveled at golf marvelously played by a fun guy having fun playing golf. It wasn't the first time there had been communal rapture upon this hallowed ground. Some few in the Monday crowd had been present for the thunderous rider cup comeback of 99. And of course, there was the original and forever went on September 21st, 1913..

"ESPN daily is presented by supercuts. The smarter, easier way to get a haircut. It's not just any haircut. It's super cuts. Kevin von waldenberg, you have been tracking the protagonist of the existential crisis that golf has been enveloped by over the last several days. You were with Phil Mickelson in London at the live golf tournament the first ever, which we're here to talk about, but we also just watched him give his first press conference. Here in America in months at the country club, the host of this week's U.S. open in Brookline, Massachusetts, and my first question to you is just, are you surprised that Phil Mickelson ditched his leather jacket? Well, Pablo in the vein of Phil Mickelson, the way he answered questions today, I'll say, I respect your question, just so much respect for it, but I think I'm going to not address that at the moment. I know that many of you have strong many people have strong opinions, emotions about my choice to go forward with Liv golf. And I understand, and I respect that. Well, I mean, it was such a thing because he shows up. He's also looking like a midlife crisis in London, right? Which is appropriate, I suppose, for what golf is also battling with, but he shows up in his Harris licked back and his leather jacket, and he is a scruffy beard. How would you describe what Phil was looking in sounding like? A couple days later here at the U.S. open presser. On Monday, a little more polished than we saw in London. You could tell in London he was going to take a full ten second pause at times to decide how he was going to answer questions. I think you can see a lot of evidence of a lot of therapy since he's been away. And he's has pretty much come out and said that not only has he been in therapy to deal with some of his gambling addictions, but also to just sort of be a better, more focused, more present person. Well, I wanted to say that it's nice to be back, nice to see you guys. It's been four months. It's been, it's given me an opportunity to spend time with loved ones and continue some of the work therapy wise on some of the deficiencies that I have, certainly, and as well as focus on best paths forward. I'm sure we're big fans of therapy on this pod here and of course. So I don't think anything is that as a knock on film, but I think that it's very clear that he is done being the sort of smart alecky freewheeling character that he once was. It is hard to shake the fact that a lot of this evolution has been spurred by the fact that he is the face of the Liv golf tournament, right? Which is backed by the government of Saudi Arabia. Why is this tour such a huge deal that is obscuring everything? How would you begin to answer that at this point? Let's just start with the fact that the public investment fund of Saudi Arabia has around $600 billion in it. And that is just money that Saudi Arabia has earmarked for the purposes of transforming its country in their words sort of away from a dependency on oil and more towards being a more progressive society. They made investments in Formula One in WWE in horse racing. There you now have a controlling interest in Newcastle United and the Premier League. Golf is the latest step in that supposed evolution. And what that is essentially being described by human rights groups is sports washing. Which is when you are essentially laundering your reputation geopolitically by using sports by making yes, people more comfortable with investing in your country, business wise, and so what Liv golf is basically saying, it's not a regular sports league that would ever have to turn a profit or balance its books. It is just a sports league that is willing to spend $2 billion over the next four years to launder Saudi Arabia's reputation. How big a threat do you think the live tour is to the sport of golf to the PGA Tour in specific? I try to sort of explain it like this to people who aren't golf nerds like myself. Imagine if another league started up another basketball league, say, in China or in Europe or somewhere, and they could take away the 50 best players in the NBA. So no Steph Curry, no LeBron James, no Joel embiid, no even, you know, James Hart. What would that look like in terms of you as an NBA fan? You'd be pretty bored by some of the games you wouldn't just immediately adopt the sort of new players you'd feel kind of lost. You didn't know any of the storylines. You didn't know any of the drama. You were frustrated. That's what's potentially occurring with golf is yes, those players, it seems like who went to go live will probably still be able to play in the majors. The masters, the U.S. open, the PGA Championship, the open championship. Right, not regulated by the PGA Tour proper. Correct. The PJ tour does not own or control any of those majors. But Phil is going to play Liv golf. He's said he's going to play in all the tournaments this year. He's going to play in all the tournaments next year. And whether he's able to ever play on tour again, I think we'll just have to be kind of determined going forward by the courts. And so that's why golf has a kind of like a boxing vibe to it at the moment where there are a lot of different competing interests and some people declaring themselves jamming that some people getting mega rich and all of that is going to shake out in a long, protracted,.

basketball which starts its 5th season We're talking about ice cube everybody Hey Mister cube Mister ice Mister cube There he is That is coming up straight ahead on the business of sports but first we got some topics to talk about and they are some big ones And probably dominating right now PGA Tour has suspended players participating in the Saudi Mac league the golf investment which there are 17 players right now and some of those players include Phil Mickelson Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia and scar the PGA means business Yeah they are taking a hard line on anyone who's taking part in this Saudi Arabia backed golf league The PJ saying they will be suspended from PGA tournament play They have really thrown down the gauntlet and want to create this perception that this is a breakaway league and it will not be tolerated and that these players are making this choice for financial based reasons and they can not therefore be part of the PGA Tour and participate in the membership benefits and the opportunities and the platform And there is truth to the fact that there is a lot of money at play here that there are financial based reasons for players taking part in this new league The reports show that Phil Mickelson is getting paid I think $200 million Dustin Johnson a 150 million that is more than double the total prize money he's earned so far on tour Apparently Tiger Woods turned down 1 billion to take part Well I mean look there's a lot of money involved I mean Scarlett for sure but I mean for me God it does sound like a lot of fun Have you heard about this format I mean first of all yes a lot of money I mean total price per of 25 million per event But I mean the first event is going to be I mean there are 12 teams Each team has a captain they select the draft who they're going to have on their teams It's three days not four it's a 48 man field with a shotgun start I mean it's still a traditional sort of stroke play format but it does sound like a lot of fun It brings in a little bit of a match play shotgun start all that good stuff And by the way two men who are not on the list as of yet Bryson edition Beau and Patrick Reed The thing about it is they're offering all this money to the players to come to the IV right now Dustin Johnson I think was offered a $100 million plus all the prize money He wins And what Johnson said was look I can't play forever So in basically he wants to set his life up later on down the road With a $100 million start it's for some of these players it's hard to turn down so like you said scar this is a hard line that the PGA is taking What's also interesting here is it's notable that the USGA is not following this script The USGA oversees the U.S. open which will happen soon And it did say that those who are qualified to play in the U.S. open will not be prevented from teeing it up because of their participation in the Liv event So that's an interesting sidebar story in all of this but one of the big issues that people have with this golf league is just that Saudi Arabia is trying to sports wash its global image right Because under The Crown prince we'll haven't been Salma and it's trying to diversify its economy beyond oil and detract move away from it's just small human rights record Well look I mean from my perspective it sounds like the era of free agency is beginning in professional golf Well prices aren't falling at this Walmart Oh good transition See Walmart air Rob Walton looks like he's the man that is going to buy the NFL Broncos they have made the announcement that yeah this is going to happen So they bought the team in its according to ESPN and others This deal is worth $4.65 billion Yeah the highest price tag for any U.S. team since Jose bought the Brooklyn Nets for $3.3 billion Of course we had Chelsea sold Todd bully and Friends for 5.3 billion not so long ago but Sam Walton along with his daughter and her husband as well as melody hobson who is the co CEO of aerial investments will be taking ownership provided that the NFL finance committee and other team owners approve the deal Of the Broncos which has been something we've been waiting for for a couple of months now It's notable here that melody hobson would be the first I don't know if the first black person because up until now no black person has ever held a majority stake in any NFL team I don't know if her investment changes that because I don't know how much of a share she has So these are all big question marks But yeah big price tag and as you mentioned bar it's very interesting that a company known for its thrifting Ness or its ability to provide value is splashing so much money on this team Well I mean Scarlett melody hobson's also chair of Starbucks and she's on the board for Bloomberg philanthropies but more importantly she's married to George Lucas So I can see the Millennium Falcon making passes and flybys at the beginning of Denver Bronco games It'd be pretty awesome I would like to see that That's pretty good Coming up next Hey Ice cube And he's going to talk about the league that he founded Big three basketball they're starting their 5th season That is

"mickelson" Discussed on The Lead

"The growth of any potential rival league? It's quite likely there's going to be a legal challenge because when you become a member of the PGA Tour, you agree to certain regulations in exchange. You become part of this massive pension program and you're eligible for all these bonus programs that are a lot of money. But you agree that you won't play in competing events. It's a little bit like asking your spouse for permission to cheat on them, right? And so all the guys who asked for releases to play in this first Saudi event, the tour declined. And you get into issues of antitrust and that's out of my depth. I don't have that legal expertise, but some people who do feel like the tour is going to lose this legal challenge. And that could blow open the entire structure of professional golf because the dream for Phil and all these other players is maintain their PGA Tour membership, play in their favorite tournaments, keep collecting the pension, but cherry pick a handful of these Saudi tournaments where the money is astronomical. That's what they all want to do if they can. There's various obstacles set up by the tour and by public reaction. But if the PGA Tour loses this battle in court, the Saudi league is all of a sudden going to get an influx of a lot of top players. And what Phil and others have been forecasting, which is a widespread change to professional golf is going to happen. And finally, Alan, given all of this, what do you think Phil Mickelson's legacy around this issue is going to be? It's kind of depends on how the legal challenges go because the final chapter of the story is not written. We don't know what's going to happen with the Saudi tour and how it's going to reshape professional golf. People who say that Phil is tarnished his legacy forever. I think that shows a pretty short collective memory. I mean, Tiger Woods has put his family and his fans to a lot worse than Phil Mickelson has. And he's more beloved than ever. And so I think Phil can reclaim his place in the game as his elder statesman and as his fan favorite, but he's definitely playing with fire when it comes to Saudis and what he chooses. It will affect his legacy. What's happened up to this point? I think his survivable, but if he goes all in with the Saudis and really makes himself a pariah, it's going to be a complex legacy. So there's a road back for Phil, but it does not run through the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. And personally, I would love to see him renounce the Saudis and pledge his fealty to the PGA Tour, but feels always been a wild card. He's always been a rebel and he certainly does things his own way. And then you add in the question of, does he actually need that money? What is the level of need and or desperation for that huge Saudi pay day? And that's a whole complicating factor. So where he goes from here is going to be absolutely fascinating. Thank you so much, Alan for breaking this down. It definitely will be fascinating. Yeah, thanks for having me.

So Mark, it occurs to me that the biggest headlines when this story first broke were about Phil Mickelson very blithely overlooking human rights abuses. And I get why. But Saudi Arabia funding the super golf league concept was already out there before that, right? I mean, the idea was not nearly as controversial and it actually seems like the biggest reason the PGA Tour was suddenly freaking out about all of this. Was because Phil was openly undermining the business of the PGA Tour, which led to this very long written apology that Phil posted on Twitter. He said, although it doesn't look this way given my recent comments, my actions throughout this process have always been in the best interest of golf, my peer players, sponsors, fans, but then he adds their is the problem of off the record comments being shared without context. And without my consent, but the bigger issue that I use words, I sincerely regret that do not reflect my true feelings or intentions. And ship knock the, again, the writer who's doing the unauthorized bio, he roundly denies that this was an off the record conversation. He said he never said the comments were off the record. He made it clear that the comments from Phil, any information from the conversation with Phil would be used in his upcoming book and he said there was no question in his mind that Phil knew was on the record. Right, and chipmunk himself explained as much recently on the fire pit podcast. I'm a biographer working on a book. He's asked to speak. Every single thing he says to me is going in the book unless we agree expressly that it's not. And if he wants to set some ground rules and if you wanted to go off of the record, I would have pushed back really hard because this was my one chance to talk to him. But he never asked to go off the record. He never said it, it was on background. He never said this is just between me and you or tried intimate anything like that. In the text, beforehand, and we got in the phone. He just started talking. At that point, it is an on the record interview with a biographer. That's not even in question. I think every other writer in the world would have the same attitude. And so all we have from Phil since he gave those quotes, which he says, we're off the record, but ship Doug says we're very much on the record talking to a journalist. Is that Twitter apology? And this is where I think of what Randall shambling came out and said in public, Mark, because this is the former PGA Tour player. And now the golf channel analyst, who said, quote, just red fill statement, it's 6 paragraphs, the first paragraph sets the stage for him being a victim, the second paragraph is in pretending to be an activist, the third and fourth paragraphs are about spin and damage control slash money, and the 5th and 6th are him saying he's a good guy. Yeah, Rory McIlroy, who's, you know, one of the most insightful and well respected players on tour, you know, said he thought Nicholson's comments were surprising and disappointing and it's just sad. I don't want to kick someone while he's dying, obviously, but I thought they were naive selfish egotistical ignorant. A lot of words to describe that interaction he had with ship knock. It was just very surprising and disappointing, sad. What were the responses from the people who pay fill to advertise their products? What was the fallout in terms of the marketing and advertising world? Yeah, one by one, we lost several of his top sponsors, KPMG, ended its relationship with him, am still light, ended its relationship, work day. Ended its relationship. Callaway, which basically gave him a sponsorship agreement through the rest of his career, paused their relationship. The American Express tournament in la Quinta, California, which Mickelson hosted and the tournament also benefited his foundation. It ended its relationship with him and then said that the tournament would no longer benefit his charity. So there's several severe blows to his pocketbook and his reputation. So his sponsors have been leaving him and we have not seen him on tour at all. Since those comments emerged, but what we don't have clarity on Mark, it seems like is whether the PGA Tour the thing he tried to create this revolt against has actually suspended him themselves. The PGA Tour does not announce publicly discipline of its players. Dustin Johnson took some time away. He said he had registered back moving some jet skis. It was later reported that there were other reasons for that and he was actually suspended, but Jay monahan, the PGA Tour commissioner at the players championship, a few weeks ago, was asked to fill could have played in the players championship if he wanted. And I was a little bit surprised because monaghan had said he had not had a conversation with Mickelson at that point. I have not talked to Phil since he made his comments and since he said that he was stepping away. And like I said, I think the ball is in his court. I would welcome a phone call from him. But it's hard for me to talk about the different scenarios that could play out. And so as difficult as it is to read some of the things that were said, ultimately, the conversation will be had when he's ready to have it. And I'll be ready to have it as well. Is Phil serving a suspension right now, you know, I don't think so. Will he serve some sort of suspension when he comes back? That's going to be up to him and monaghan again, it doesn't have any bearing on him not playing in the masters and you just got to wonder if Fred Ridley, the master's chairman, Augusta national chairman, made a phone call and said, hey, not this year. We don't want the negative attention, you're too hot right now, but we'll see if and Winfield comes back. Right, I mean, the master is a separate entity as you alluded to, apart from the PGA Tour. It's run by Augusta national and meanwhile, Phil has never made an official announcement about this week in Augusta. And so with Phil Mickelson at age 51, who may or may not be punished by the people who he tried to overthrow, I mean, what is next for him at this point in this latter phase of his life? I think the big question going forward, Pablo, is when do we see him again? Do we see him back on the PGA Tour? He's the defending PGA champion. The PGA Championship at southern hills in May, what we see him there. I think what's kind of been lost in this is we've asked is it has he been disciplined by the PGA Tour, can he come back to the PGA Tour? Does he have a spot in Saudi? After what he said about the people financing that league, did he take money from the Saudis and does he.

"Momentum and just really, it seemed like it was dead in the water. That was at Riviera when his comments were first published and I mean, one after another, I mean, there wasn't much of anyone standing up for Phil and saying they must have been taken out of context. I can't believe he would have said that. I think they were very few people. That were stunned that those words came out of his mouth. Justin Thomas called it egotistical. Seems like a bit of a pretty, you know, egotistical statement. I don't know. I mean, it's like, he's done a lot of great things to the PGA Tour. It's a big reason it is where it is, but you know him and others that are very adamant on that. If they're that passionate about it, go ahead. You know, one by one, the PGA Tour brought out the top players from John rom, who was the time ranked number one in the world. Victor hovland from Norway. I mean, one by one, to a man came out and said, within a few days of Mickelson's comments that, you know, my loyalties to the PGA Tour as long as the best players in the world are playing on the PGA Tour. I'm going to play on the PGA Tour. You know, I had a player tell me anonymously. This wasn't just Phil being Phil. This was a failed coup attempt and how do you come back from that? Phil's been controversial.

"To get a haircut. It's not just any haircut. It's super cuts. Here it is. Biggest moment of the legendary career. Phil defeats father time. That was just ten months ago at the 2021 PGA Championship when Phil Mickelson became the oldest major winner in the history of golf at age 50. An unprecedented trajectory that should have carried him to Augusta Georgia, where the masters are underway this week. But Phil Mickelson is not playing in his favorite tournament. In fact, Phil hasn't been seen on the PGA Tour at all in months. And nobody's sure when they'll see him again. So today, as Augusta praise for the return of Tiger Woods, Mark reports the story of his rival, the legend in exile, the man who isn't there. Because Phil Mickelson cozied up to an authoritarian government. And tried to overthrow the PGA itself. I'm Pablo Torre. It's Wednesday, April 6th. This is ESPN daily. CSX, a growing Fortune 500 logistics company, has immediate openings for freight train conductors. If you're looking for a rewarding career offering paid training at nearly $25 per hour, competitive benefits, and you share a passion for great service, apply today at CSX dot com slash careers. That's CSX dot com slash careers. CSX committed to supporting military and veteran families and their communities. CSX is an equal opportunity employer. The obvious huge story at the beginning of master's week is whether Tiger Woods is or isn't gonna play all of the drama there, but I'm calling you one of the show because I need to dive into your reporting on the saga of a guy who we know for certain is not going to be playing in Augusta this week. The foremost rival to Tiger Woods, I'm talking about Phil Mickelson. And Mark for people who don't remember here, right? It's worth pointing this out. Less than a year ago, we were celebrating Phil, as the oldest major champion ever, he had just won the PGA at age 50. And now he's about to miss what would have been his 30th masters tournament. And that's the tournament he's called his favorite. It's the one he's won three times, the one he hasn't missed since 1994. And so we're gonna go through step by step, what you've reported here and your understanding of a very complex story, but just off the top in a couple sentences, can you tell us why Phil Mickelson will not be in Augusta this week? Pablo, he's taken a leave of absence, what we don't know is whether or not it's his own decision to take that leave of absence or if someone at the PGA Tour told him to take some time off, the tour does not publicly disclose discipline of players, that being said that has nothing to do with these situation at Augusta national golf club because the club controls the masters and we don't know if Fred Ridley, the chairman, picked up the phone and said, hey, Phil, not this year, or if this truly is Phil's decision not to be here this week. And all this drama Mark, it really stems from these comments that film made that came to light in February about a proposed new golf league, funded by the government of Saudi Arabia that would have competed with the PGA Tour, so remind us how Phil's comments became public. Alan ship knock who used to work for Sports Illustrated. And some other golf publications has his own website now on fire pit collective. He's for the last several months been working on an unauthorized biography. Of Mickelson and his talk to probably more than 100 people about Mickelson and he'd reached out to Phil and his team several times to get Mickelson to sit down with him and talk and he tried a few times and it never never came to fruition and then last fall. You know, just as he was finishing up the manuscript and about to ship it to his publisher, Mickelson reached out and said, hey, I want to talk. So how would you describe what Phil Mickelson said? I mean, it was mind numbing that it would even come out of his mouth, especially considering you were speaking to a journalist and a guy riding in an authorized biography about him, but you know, he called the Saudis scary motherfuckers and said, we know they killed this journalist. We know that kill gay people, you know, knowing all this. Why would I even consider it? Oh, because it'll give me leverage with the PGA Tour. I mean, it was just he couldn't have said much of anything that could have been worse. No, I mean, he literally says, quote, they're scary motherfuckers get involved with, we know they killed Khashoggi referring to Washington Post reporter, Jamal Khashoggi, we know they have a horrible record on human rights. They execute people over there for being gay, knowing all this, why would I even consider it question mark? Because this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to reshape how the PGA Tour operates. And that, I mean, I know that Phil's kind of a loose cannon, but this felt like a new sort of bar being set in terms of regrettable things you say to a media person. No, on top of that a guy riding an unauthorized biography about you, but I mean, he didn't stop there. I mean, he. He admitted that he had been listed three other PGA Tour players to pay for attorneys to write up and draft the operating agreement for the proposed breakaway tour. So not only was he in discussions with the organizers and financiers of a rival league to the PGA Tour, but he was involved in actually creating the league and, you know, trying to recruit other players to join it..

"That you need full transparency, not half transparency, not three quarters, or whatever the PGA Tour is on that spectrum right now. Rory said, I would love to see full transparency or much better than with tour has. Because what if you bet on Phil Mickelson via DraftKings to win the masters and you bet on Phil Mickelson one month ago? Early February. Phil Mickelson was playing one month ago in Saudi Arabia. It looked at that time. He was going to have a chance to play in the masters. And now it looks like he you know, he probably won't play in the masters. Or if you just bet on him to win the players or anything like that. These kind of things matter when it comes to is a player going to be able to play. When should there be an injury report sent around for the PGA Tour every single week? Like there is for every other sport that is, that is played out on these gambling platforms. I would say that that is the, that's the string that can be pulled from this gigantic yarn of secrecy. Very quickly, Sean, to your point. I actually think the tour is going to wind up heading forward with just disclosing a lot more information. I think they'll probably present it to the public as like, oh, look at us making all of these positive changes for the game. But I'm telling you because I know this to be true. It is driven by the tourist desire if it happens. It'll be driven by the tourist desire to expand in the sports gambling world and in the sports gambling space. This is a huge completely untapped frontier. But it can't exist with the level of insider knowledge that some people who are much closer to the tour than the average fan have. It's a complete competitive disadvantage to the sports gambling world. And yeah, we're still in the very, very early stages of that, but I just, I can't see any way in which the tour would not update some of those policies. So they can take in what is a metric metric load of money from it. Well, in the whole point of that is, okay, what, let's say, Matt every. Fair or bad example. What met every might lose in cussing on camera and throwing his club into the Lake in a fine, you know, Matt every as a part of the PGA Tour will earn back in revenues split up among tour players because of like gigantic revenue streams from the gambling space. So what's tricky is that it's all lumped into one, right? Fines and suspensions, like those are two actually drastically different things. What is happening to Phil Mickelson right now compared to what might happen for cussing on camera, two very big different things..

"Everybody's life have been just completely disrupted in every way, shape or form, right? Whether it's economically or with COVID and everything, that when this new league comes along part of the backlash resistance from golf fans to it is the fact that it's about to disrupt this sort of thing that we all like, which is professional golf. This thing we understand and relate to and him coming out there and saying, like, no, we're going to come down on the side of legacy. And even when he was talking about Phil Mickelson, he made, you know, he took care to note that this guy is a guy who's one for countless events on the PGA Tour. He is a legend on this tour. I think it was definitely the message that is the most resonant to the people most opposed to an upstart golf venture. And I thought he came off well. Yeah. One of the biggest topics he was repeatedly asked about was Phil Mickelson. Dylan, you wrote about the relationship between Phil Mickelson and Jay monahan at this point. Their relationship right now is not a good one. They have not spoken since the fallout that Phil went under since his announcement. He was taking time away since his quotes with Alan shebna were published. At this point, to me, to you to everyone on this call, it sounds like Phil Mickelson is suspended. Whether it's a literal suspension that he has been handed, I don't know if it matters. Film Mickelson's not playing PGA Tour. I would push back against that. I would say that I don't think he's actually suspended..

"Go for it. But don't tell me that the PGA Tour is the greedy one here. You can have gripes with their media rights. I mean, look, we've had run ins with the PGA Tour. I would love to be able to take photos and videos at tour events. By all means, I would like to be able to cash in on that too, Phil, but it's just disingenuous and it's especially disingenuous because he's sort of citing like market value as if this alternative has anything to do with free market. It's not as if he's entering some world of free market capitalism here where Phil Phil is not going to be worth a $100 million if you have to see a proper return on investment. It's only because you're being propped up to sportswash the image of a country and how you feel about that again can vary. But I think we can all agree that that is what's happening and Phil Mickelson by saying what he's saying by saying obnoxious, you know, it's obnoxious greed by the PGA Tour, whether or not he has a point about the PGA Tour guarding media rights, et cetera is one thing, but to say that he is not being greedy to say that going to the Saudi side is somehow taking the moral high ground. That's where you lose me. And you know what? Phil has going for him. He has among he's among the most beloved golfers on the planet. And when you are one of the favorite athletes in any sport, everyone thinks that you are right about everything when it comes to your sport. And Phil is probably right about everything when it comes to hitting a golf ball, but when it comes to like legislating meteorites and working on people's opinions in the media, fill at this point in his life, is popping off a lot of stuff on Twitter..

"I'm feeling a little conflicted Dylan because last week, on this podcast, I said, you know, it's okay that will sell a Taurus lost because Luke list needed to get that victory. He needed to get his first win. Luke list was going to get his master's invite. Will zell tors is going to he's going to win and contend sometime later this year most likely. I think the same goes for speed, but I didn't feel the same way. I felt like, you know what? Screw Tom hoagie. I'm okay with Jordan Spieth winning. Am I a hypocrite? No, you're not a hypocrite because Jordan Spieth is not wills all Torres. When you're watching Jordan Spieth, try to win at pebble beach, you're watching something special. You get the feeling that you are, you're in the right place. You know, you're glad not to be watching the Pro Bowl, for example. If you're watching Tom hoagie win at pebble beach, maybe it's too late to say no offense to Tom hoagie. But it doesn't elevate the event in the same way. When we had Jordan Spieth and Patrick cantlay in what looked like it was potentially going to be a two man battle near the end of the front 9. When it looked like it was those two guys dueling for the win, this event started to feel big. I know the talent was not there. The field was pretty weak, but when it's those two guys on that golf course, it starts to feel like a big event. When it's a Tom hoagy coronation coming down the 18th hole when you've got both types of bow hosler stocks come on, bow hit the green from 200 and when you got boha than just juicing bunker shots past the pin and three putting for bogey. It came to a bit of a thud of a conclusion after just some heart racing action over the last really day and a half. Yeah, day and a half meaning, inclusive of speech Saturday in which everyone and their mother freaked out about the approach that he hit into I think the 8th hole, is that right? He had hit his the atoll, yes. Jack Nicholas called it the greatest approach shot in all of golf. Yeah. And there was Jordan Spieth. His favorite par four, I believe in the world. Maybe his favorite golf ball in the world..

Hey the open. I do not know what happened on thursday. I played great the practice round. I felt prepared. I felt ready. I thought it was gonna come out and play and my mind went blank. And i just i just kind of lost it and i think that's one of those things where after playing you know five out of six weeks i had the match there. I didn't have the mental strength capacity along jetty. Whatever maybe it's at age maybe it's just me to be that present that's focus for that period of time and so that's why we as athletes have to understand a know ourselves and kind of pace ourselves so that we perform it the The biggest events. But okay so now knowing that knowing that i prepared as well as i possibly could. If i don't succeed it's okay because i can't do anything different so i gave it my best chance. I give it everything. I could put everything into it. I didn't succeed now when i do see like. Bj it's very fulfilling right right because you live for those moments and when you when you get a few those moments you cherish forever.

We can't thank you enough for your time better than ever. Obviously go ahead gone. Yeah one of the big story lines. That's been going on in golf. Lately is brooks price in rivalry. Is that something you think is good for golf or do you think that. There's no room for that on the torn. And almost draws a divide in the clubhouse. It's brilliant for these incredible. And and i like and respect both players very much and i think it's something that has helped golf transcend outside of just the golf page but more into the sports world and i think it's been great for the both of them individually as well so i i just i think it's been terrific and they brought a lot of awareness to the game of golf and a law. Great storylines a lot of interest. I think it's been fabulous. There was a conversation that was going to be bryson brooks and mickelson in. I think it was the first pairing potentially post the eye-roll de shambo brooke situation. And i think everybody was. That film mixes a perfect film magazines. The perfect output in there. Are you some your. You have to be somebody that all these young golfers go to that have to be. I assume that that is just a a kind of a part of the job. Now at this point is answering and giving advice or is that not something that happens in golf. No it definitely happens and for me. It was guys like ben crenshaw. That were very helpful. Where i was able to ask questions. And so it's helpful to have a lot of these questions answered and get some ideas direction. How to handle some difficult situations that nobody else would really be aware of unless you were in the golf world.

Fill finished t seventy four. So yeah i mean. I shout out to cam davis. Who seems sean to be going by cam. Which is like an ongoing drama onto her. You've got cam. Smith who might be cameron cameron champ. Who's definitely cameron cameron. Percy who seems to be cameron and then there's cam smith who is For now just going by. Can't or camp davis excuse me. Don't forget about cameron young. Yeah look lest we forget. I think he's a cameron. so anyway. Cam davis seemed to be going by this week. Definitely something to monitor. But phil mickelson man. Where do we even begin with this. Basically on tuesday just to get you quickly. Caught up on tuesday the detroit news not to be confused with the detroit. Free press so the second largest News source in the city of detroit released an article that you know basically tied it retold this story of mickelson making a large bet in nineteen ninety nine He.

Are the Kansas City Chiefs Going To Land Julio Jones?

"Let's talk. julio jones my friend. Because i mean look it's a long shot i'm going to say it oddsmakers think it's a long shot. The chiefs are thirty. Three to one odds to land. Julio jones in a trade which is way longer odds than many many other teams. So las vegas does not think. Julio jones is going to land in kansas city but julio jones is gonna land somewhere and it sounds like it's not in philadelphia this year. Where are you at all this. I'll say this vegas didn't think phil mickelson was going to win this as last major. Guess what a that happened. So i don't know where julio jones is gonna land. I do think. Kansas city actually makes sense. I'm surprised vegas hasn't bumped it up a little bit as based on the past knowledge of how aggressive brett. Vh is the fact that julio jones said he wants to play for a winner he wants to play for a contender. You sit basically said give me the hell out of atlanta. You know If you wanna play for winter you wanna play for a contender. You wanna play for a good quarterback now you kate. A city checks all those boxes. You have a hall of fame coach. Andy reid i would. I would think that those numbers would be higher. What are your thoughts on this. Well let me kick it back to you with this. Albert breer reported today that basically that would probably take second round. Pick to get julio jones. Now that's it like. I think it sounds good on paper. Yeah i think it sounds good on paper to julio jones. i'm probably in the conservative camp of. I think the chiefs are already more loaded than any other team out there. They've already gotten their the last two years. I don't care what the bills in the browns have done. The chiefs are gonna make mincemeat of them. Whatever they play so. I don't know that we need julio jones so so you know to me. I'd rather keep that second round pick
