Players Championship Preview with Rick Gehman: The Chris Hrabe Show Ep. 106

"From. Hi welcome into the. Chris rabi sean daddy. Mac dot com. It is the wednesday march tenth. Twenty twenty one edition of the program. It's the players championship and we're talking all things players championship with our guy. Rick damon from rick run good dot com but almost have like a little. Ptsd rick considering the fact that last year we got one round of the players in while everything else sports was being cancelled and then that was really the final Major sport the final shoot dropped so to speak before everything changed he s certainly and good to hear. I mean it's it's i was thinking back Just a couple of days ago. How quickly everything changed. I mean we went from playing the first round of the players championship to saying okay. We're going to continue to play but fans are not going to be able to come in to okay. This whole thing is cancelled and what ended up being ninety one days off for the pga tour at the time we we had no idea what we were. What you're in store for. The things happen very quickly at this time last year about last year. Like the thought of no fans that was crazy. Thought you know when it came to golf when it came to the ncaa tournament. Yeah and we're just now getting fans back at at sporting events golf tournaments thousand each day. There's going to be a presence here a bit for. Tpc sawgrass for the players. So yeah we are still a ways away from getting back to the norm in terms of at least golf. Spectatorship regain is with us. Rick run good dot com website. Run good dot com. Let's talk about that. I wrecked because it's been so great to hear fans back even if it's just a handful of them it's it's been fantastic and i am eager to To see how fans continued to be implemented into a lot of these tournaments especially throughout the florida. Swing a few moments during the no fan portion of golf where it's like. Wow that would have been great to have fans there. You know jon rahm shipping in late in the round on our at memorial and he drops a sixty six foot. Putt on dustin johnson. Like those those moments would have been awesome with fans and now players are are starting to say yeah that that energies back a little bit right. Bryson d shambo mentioned the energy from the arnold palmer Rory mcelroy's very candid about he. You how much he uses the fans energy to him over the course of a golf tournament. So yeah we're we're we're starting to get back to it. It's almost a little weird now with fans but of course We'll we'll get used to it real quick all right. Let's talk about the players championship brick and first and foremost field the chorus. What do you like about this tournament. And how do you start to evaluate you a field. That is a major esque type of Strength field. yeah. This is one of the strongest fields. We we ever get forty eight of the top fifty players in the world here. The only notable absences are matthew. Wolfenden brooks koepka. But you look at what. This course has done saugus. Probably one of the most recognizable courses on the face of the earth. The island green seventeenth. Which is technically chris. Peninsula green seventeenth is is one of the most recognizable holes in all of golf. And what i like about sawgrass is. There's not one set. You think about the winners here. Rory mcilroy had not had that ziama. Jason day cam rickie fowler webb simpson. I mean those guys don't have a lot in common. Tpc's sawgrass requires you to be in complete control of your game and it allows anyone to win if you are in control. So it's it's pretty fun. It's pretty volatile. So does that affect all you of course history versus recent form. Rick yeah for sure. I mean even even guys both worrying day one this event where they missed the cut the year prior a lot of the courts. History here is pretty random. You don't see guys who have a lot of success and then you don't have guys who have very little success. It seems to be quite sporadic. You can you can have a top dan. You missed cuts in a row. You can come back. It's just kind of all over the place. That's florida golf. Chris you know the water lurking in a lot of places. There's big numbers. You hit a couple of errant shots in your scores They start to add up very quickly. In auroras an interesting cases we visit with regained from rick run good dot com. Because if you looked at the recent form from a wind standpoint. You wouldn't think that you know. It's typical rory mcilroy. Look at the odds and how short he still is in where. He's ending up on saturday and sunday where he's teeing off on sunday. The form would be pretty good. Wouldn't it. yeah. I mean unless your name's rory mcilroy these are great results unless you're a top ten player in the world. These are guys would do anything to be piling up. The amount of top tens of top five finishes at this guy is in tournaments all over the world. But the problem for rory is. He's graded on wins and he hasn't hoisted a trophy. Since twenty one thousand nine. He went the entire thousand twenty calendar year without one. We're now three months into Twenty twenty one and he still hasn't done it so so yes. I think the perception of rory's play recently is much worse than it actually is just because he hasn't been adding any trophies to his trophy case rick. So let's look at the top of the draft kings card. You mentioned the no brooks koepka but everybody else. Who's in the mix. Where are we starting. And what are you looking at as we start to build out the top of the card. Yeah so there. There's two right near the top. That i think we have to talk about their johnston thomas. He's ninety nine. Hundred is not even ten k. Guy which is not unusual in in huge fields like this deep fields the pricing is a little bit softer. So it's not unreasonable. See these guys under ten k. Justin thomas is is lurking. He's doing that thing again. Where he's awesome with his irons he was terrible with his driver at the wgc workday. That's the last time we saw him. He's been working hard three off. He's been working hard with driver off the tee the rest of his game looks like the blueprint for him to win a golf tournament. And then here's the big one chris. It's bryce andy. Shambo is ninety seven hundred. The key here is this. Pricing came out early and it came out before the conclusion of the arnold palmer invitational and because bryson went on to win that event if this pricing would have came out normally on monday like it usually does he'd probably be thousand dollars more expensive so we're talking about a guy who is the best player in the world last week. Who is probably getting a thousand dollars worth of built in value right off the bat. So does that scream value to you or does it also scream. Ownership percentages are going to be spike numbers. You know it's weird i. We're trying to track this over. The course of. I don't think price is going to be that popular and i think it's because you have a lot of big names here and for whatever reason chris. Golf is the only sport that we do this. We penalize the guy who was the best player in the world last week and we say well. He can't win twice in a row. That's the argument. The only argument against bryson is that he was the best player in the world last week. Or the guys that can rip that all of course. Of course it's so silly that we that we do that and But i think that means ownership doesn't get too high here rick. How about as we make our way a little bit. Further down the draft kings card and again you gotta rick run good dot com run good dot com for the cheat sheet for all of the information but Again if we're looking at recent form how do we start to find some values. We work our way a little bit. Further down the draftkings card this week. Yes for sure. You know you can get down and you guys like daniel berger who won a at&t pebble beach a couple of starts ago. He's a florida guy. This is a really good spot for him. I mean you talk about recent form further down the board few guys better jordan spieth right now. Four consecutive top fifteen finishes. And i liked the way. He's doing it. He's gained jokes on approach in fourteen of his last sixteen and then is kind of like a draft king special for your christmas louis. Who stays who seventy eight hundred dollars and louis louis burns everybody last week because he withdrew after this tournament started but before he hit a shot so all of his backers last week to ten percent of them across the site got zero from louis and they're probably a bit jaded this tweak. I think he comes in really low owned. He's coming off a six place finish at the. Wgc workday finished eleventh in phoenix. He doesn't play often. Chris but when he does he plays really really well. He's another guy that can just be like a top. ten top. twenty machine always seems especially in majors. Earning the like this against strong fields. You look at two pm on saturday. And there is in the first page leaderboard. Right lou is going to be involved. I mean he is finished runner up in every major and the players championship in his career. He's got the career grand slam runner up. Finishes i mean. He just finds a way to assert himself on the top of the leaderboard. It happens routinely. And i don't see it stopping anytime soon before we ask you about one and done how about you like a real dark horse whether it be from draft kings or maybe from any angle betting card this week. Rick yes so this. This event elicits a bit of chaos. So i think you are You know i'm much more willing to further down the board than i normally would be. And i'm gonna really really deep here. Johnny vegas is three hundred to one. He's sixty three hundred dollars on draft kings. He's coming off a runner up. Finish in puerto rico. Which i love to see. That was his last start. He finished third here. The last time this was played in full so that was twenty nine thousand nine hundred and he has a skill set as one of the best drivers of the golf ball on the pga tour. That i think plays well in florida so that that to me is the guy that hey it's it's deep. It's certainly a long shot. But there is at least enough reason to think that he's got a a decent chance of of making some noise. This week i love it recovered from a one and done perspective. The field this deep. What kind of strategy are you using. What kind of guy are you looking for for a one and done pick sure so. This is This is the time to use your stutz. it's fifteen million. Dollars is the largest prize golf. Two point seven million to the winner. That's essentially like i n second-place money at some of the events that we get on the pga tour. So i think you've gotta burn a stud here and if i'm going to do that. Some of the guys on the shortlist. I've already talked about justin. Thomas he's kind of interesting. But i know most people like to save him for no cut events i would not mind in the slightest running. Bryson d shambo right back out there again. This week You know the the the idea that this is a kind of a big game hunter in the biggest of games and and we know he's got all the upside and the one three times in his last fifteen starts. That to me is really interesting but i think the biggest takeaway here chris is. It's time to go go. Burn your big boys. i love it. Rick gaiman rick run good dot com head over to the website. Rick run good dot com especially in event like this with the data that we have all of the internment all of the in tournament betting draft kings opportunities can't recommend enough run good dot com. Thank you sir enjoy it. We'll talk next week. Extras looking forward to it only.

NLU Podcast, Episode 276: Brad Faxon, Part II

"Beater right club today. Yeah that's better than most about. It is better than most battle. Ladies and Gentlemen Welcome. Welcome back to the no laying a podcast. We're GONNA get to another hour plus conversation. We had with Brad Faxon here. Shortly since he is the putting guru before four we do get started. You heard me talk on this. Weekend's recap pod about Mark Lieberman and Madeleine side-stream winning Odyssey putters will the number one putter in golf has has even more news for you. So for those. That struggle with your alignment with putting this is going to be an absolute godsend. They've announced their new lineup of triple track putters which features features concept you've seen on the callaway golf balls to three distinct alignment as the lines. That help you line up your Putz I kind of. I'm about eighty percent of the time. I'm a true I guy but when I need a different look go to the triple track and I will say if you have fallen even remotely in love or interested in the triple track. You got to see what what they've done with the triple track lines on the Odyssey putter. So they line up perfectly. The ball has the triple check and the putter has the exact same. Triple Track the test. This data shows eighty eight percent of golfers are better aligned with triple track technology. Neil use the triple check the most religious user of it amongst all of us and he's making putts all over my ass on a consistent basis. The triple track putters are available in the most popular odyssey shape so my favorite the Odyssey Tan. Then I need to get one of these in the arsenal so when I do go back to that triple track that I've got The Odyssey putter to go with it classic to ball. Has it even the double wide blade among others so for more on the Odyssey. Triple Track Visit Ozzy. Golf Dot Com. That's Odyssey Golf. Dot Com without further delay. Here is Brad Faxon. Well I know we talked a lot of putting last episode. I am GonNa WanNa talk more of that. We talked about a rory I think that was pretty well covered other than noting right after we had this discussion about the practice session viewed last time he went out and won a tournament so we were up. We knew he we were sniffing around the right trail around that time. Well I said to somebody today at at the Demo Day that one of the secrets to being a great coaches coaching great players. Seriously Roy is you know a once in a lifetime a player so he can make any teacher look pretty good but his approach is so much more unusual today than what everybody else is doing. He's had one instructor his entire life. caddy that's the best friend. They don't go to tournaments. Instructors don't for general they don't and I got lucky with the timing of when he asked me to come watch him and I listen. I'm proud of it. Because he his numbers have gotten way better on the Greens and the last couple of years. He's played unbelievably well. Well he's a tournament away from being number one in the world isn't one victory. He's number one. I can see that happening soon. And going back to a place like Torrey Pines where he played well last year and I think he's putting rankings would have been lower last year because he shot. I believe sixty four on the north and they don't use shot Lincoln the north course. He made seventy rape-murders that day so that we can deepen this trying to pull. I was so I listened back to our episode from October. I was playing an evening nine yesterday and I wanted dead. Listen back so it was fresh. I didn't just make sure we didn't talk about the same things over and over again but one of the things we talked about was One of the practice of going and hitting putts with something other than putter and I was. Actually he's struggling with my putting a little bit and I went hit like ten putts with a sixty degree and immediately also. Wow why does that feel better because I think I got too far in my head on putting stroke stroke and that drill immediately brought me right back like no no just like being athlete and let your instincts takeover right. It's it's a phenomenon really and I'm GonNa get a reputation mutation for facts and I'll just tell you to be F- let he'll just tell you to free it up. He'll just tell you to forget about everything which is probably a good thing to do for anybody. I I've yet to have have a top player. Come to me and say I need to think about more. I need to take longer. I need to make sure more perfect. You know nobody saying that. Okay and and what I'm trying to get players to understand in to feel and to realize when you do that when you take your sandwich. Lob Oil age all of what's correct goes out the window what I mean by that is a lot of players are used to use a mirror or chalk lines or something to help them square everything up and looked correct. That they're they're watching watching video They're trying to make posture perfect. I see a lot of players when they set up there. They're looking at their that maybe there's to- stance line their their or legs. Their hips or shoulders. See that everything square before they hit a pot. I'm like wait a minute. This is taken all your senses away from what you're supposed to be doing and thinking about where you want the ball to go. Oh and if you can't feel the difference in what you just said about taking out a lob wedge and just you know trying to hit it down and all of a sudden it doesn't matter how you hold it where aim you've just trying to belly the ball and some people sold the club. Some people raise it up It's a it's a an a leading edge it's usually got. It's not straight right. Most of them are some kind of leading edge. It has some kind of curve on. So you're not lined up perfectly and all of a sudden people go feel so good but you gotta know what that feels like before you could ever feel like that competition yet. And that's something I I in recent weeks. I've been playing more golf and I've had had some putting rounds where I have been close to blacking out as possible. I mean like ten twelve footers are practically gimmes for me and then I'll go play different course the next day and I can't get the ball to leave the putter face in in a straight line like it's comes off left it comes off right. I just can't channel that and I have no idea what is the difference is. I can't that's what I'm trying to channel and I wanted to kind of pick your brain on when things aren't going great say in a round with you're putting I'm I'm trying so hard to channel black about. Don't do anything. I tried to go back to like. Hey just feel like you swing the heel on it and or I get more vertical over it and try to feel like I. The he'll comes off the off the ground a little bit a little bit. Mike Steve stricker but it never seems to be something that I can like. Flip the switch in the middle of around. Is there anything you can have no. It's a it's a kind of problem really and I go back to the first of all we're human beings we're not perfect. Robots and machines. Where every day is going to feel the same? How you get out of bed is this is different every day but most of the people that have played this game and you would agree with this have had a shot? Full swing shot or PUTT. That you knew you were gonNA make new new. You'RE GONNA history before he's sworn in that club right everybody and that's a great feeling and whether you want to call that black they'll say like you did or a flow state Like we're hearing more about. I think the research on the brain is is virtually. We're just tapping into it. There were two or three percent of the way there. And how do we get somebody to be where you want to be. Every single time they play and there's a great challenge to it but I was really good for a long time when I played at not blaming something mechanical In my stroke when I missed or when I was and I kept saying to myself. Keep doing your routine over and over the same way. Keep doing your process and wait till these PUTTS. Go in and out when when you're missing that's a hard thing to do but at the elite level I. I don't think you really have a choice. And my favorite line that I've ever heard. I have a lot favorite lines from a lot of people but from Bob Rotella Rotella. Is You gain control from giving up control. You gain control from giving up control and I'll tell you More applicable way that you can think about that I used to try to play a lot of my practice. Homes top players Greg Norman. A lot of times Tom. Kite was took me under his wing. Early on Peter Jacobsen so I was go. Oh into the first team to practice round with Tom Kite at the woodlands and the first hole there was a dogleg par. Fives kind of narrow. And I I think it was a new correspondent. Nineteen eighty eighty four eighty. Five and Bob Rotella was out there with us. It was kind of the first round he had ever followed me around. Kite had been one of the first couple pros. Dennis Watson tight and as I steve turns around and goes. Wow you could miss this fairway if you tried and Rotella said No. You couldn't miss it if you didn't try. So that's kind of like like a tangent two that gain control by giving up control so I always like those little sayings because everybody kind of knows what it's means. It gets a little frustrated sometimes because they don't buy into it right away but when you're playing your best you're absolute thought. Yeah I think there's a difference between hitting good putts and not making them and just not feeling like you're putting well I think is kind of we know the last time you gotta live with. Hey I hit a great putt there and whatever golf happened and it didn't go in right. I think it is just so hard to channel you know in that middle that round when it's not going great how what makes you a good and I think it's as simple as like I was playing by myself last night absolutely no stakes and I have a an actual birdie. PUTT and I hit it so poorly. I just it was just never had a chance to try it again and I as soon as I looked up at the whole I I saw the putt totally differently. I just I wasn't thinking about this for Birdie. You is a twenty footer. It moves a little tool that I just saw it. Totally differently in my mind was more freed up and I don't remember if I made it or not. I just remember being like Whoa. That's a really different feeling. And so is a common phrase. It's like first second second ball of American people say when they hit another shot. But what is that. I mean you understand mental golf better than any of any of the me or anyone listening out. Imagine what is that. I want you to go back and listen to what you just said to me because early on right here when you said you don't even remember whether you hit the Putt in the whole or not but you were in the right state and I I think the best players in the world when they're especially when they're putting their best they'll hit putts and when they don't go in they can react in a positive way have their acceptance Upton spe- patting themselves on the back rather than beating themselves up and I know Personally when I've been thinking about my stroke and and trying to find some magic again there. There's always a balance every player's got some technique issues every player's got some mental issues. What's going on upstairs? And you gotta blend does and sometimes it's you add technical. Thought to clear up the mind and that'll work. Sometimes it really is. It's so individualistic player. Well do you do you no what. Let's say you're when you're putting your best in your day. Do you know what you were thinking like. Did you have a thought a swing thought with the putter. This is the first I am. I've ever seen you've got confused. I definitely have and they've all been different but I was told us Arroyo especially and he likes this feel feel I always felt like if I had my right shoulder. My right elbow right right. Hand work is kind of a piston in a chain down to the head of the putter that thing. That always felt good to me. I'm very right hand in very right side so that that was a field that that I could keep in and and work well but one of the things that the more instruction. I've done one of the things that I like to. I like to see how good guys are imitating other players. Can you know. Could you imitate some of those silly structure mentioned stricker you know. His hands are high heels off the ground and His pressures tents. Can you hit a PUTT. Make I I had rory do that. A few times with with old puddle wooden shafted putters a straight blade and he got crouch down there and looked like can Harry vardon or something and and he made them you know he was really good at that. And I've had some guys get the let me see how you can get and make. Let me see you do Loren Roberts where you feel like the blades face it and do you still have that awareness of face and path together and still can make those putts. I those things help you. And it's Kinda like learn a little skill and how to juggle that I hand coordination stuff. Yeah I think that's that's kind of similar to picking up a wedge legend. Doing something like that. who were in? I know you've mentioned some of them. But who were some of the guys that really commanded a lot of your respect when it came to putting. It's funny honey I I just had a conversation with Ray Floyd a couple of days ago. Ray Floyd design the course old palm where I live in development And he's as the architect there and A guy that was one of the most intimidating players to play with And and I remember specifically the West Chester Tournament Element was to Buick Classic. Maybe the manny before that but we were on the Tenth Eleventh Twelfth Thirteenth Tea and I had the honour I was a slow players. A young young guy and on the front of his tee box it was it was up pretty high. There were a bunch of people walking down below and Floyd to the to the right on the right side of the he couldn't and see these people. I stepped away twice twice from a shot Can I say the F. Word on show He. I stepped away for the second time. And it was a tough huffed. Teashop for me he goes well. You play fucking Gulf and I've never swung so fast I hit the worst shot and I went over and I put my head down. Download all my got ready to function. And he was a guy that commanded respect and I said to him. I mean we you know we had an. I had an hour at his house else few days ago. And we're talking about a lot of things it's particularly the short game because he was a wizard around the Greens and his whole. I asked him I said. Did you have anything you ever thought about when you putting us. No I never thought anything. All I wanted to do was be comfortable. And if you can think about ray floyd standing over a pot. He had a thirty eight inch as long putter which was very long. It was a zebra and he has very short arms in a long torso so actually stood up next to me. He showed me. This was a remarkable my hands. My fingertips were four or five inches closer to the ground than his so he needed a longer part was really heavy. He had great Flow but bent elbows arms. Far are apart and he could see his feet always tapping always Mo- moving until you get comfortable and he said I never thought about anything. I putted Mike. Never four time major champion and we played one round at the masters Years ago this was in the nineties mid nineties still a great player And he hit a SPEC then a high lofted sandwich on the fourteenth hole which was that intimidating. Green Ho location was front writing the Times you have it hit off the false front comeback and it would get into the the ryegrass fringe which was tightly Moan and most people will be running this thing up but then and once it got to the top it would run away. He took out his sixty degree. Or whatever. Fifty eight degrees gotTA JP Wilson Sandwich and he hit this ball back in the stance on an upslope banged it into the Front Green as crested the hill at six MP to go way before it was even close to go in he was walking it in left-arm up and it went in and it was winning souls off the flagstick was in but it's almost like the ball never hit the flag like how did you just do that. And he says I practice that stuff all the time. I always had different shots. I was imagining Mike. Here's Ray Floyd and what was remarkable about that. Chris is players like Floyd SEVI- Hubert Green. They were unique in their styles And commanded a lot of respect and we would say say to those guys. You have great touch. You have great feel you have great hands and now I see you know here we are looking at the PGA show with all the merchandise. How many groups do you see? See that are thin anymore. Almost none in every teacher's now let's take the hands out of the swing. Let's use big muscles like big muscles. Come on let's use little muscle. Let's use your hands and fingers in one of the little practice exercises that I like to do is to if you're having trouble with chipping if I stood to the side of you and roll rolled the ball to you so you would hit the moving ball. I bet you'd start. Chipping pretty good without hitting and moving ball would even work with the putter to and you wouldn't be trying to use big muscles muscle to do that. I'm trying to get ready. Floyd for podcast. They haven't replied to any emails to me up there. Everyone's gotTa Ray Floyd Star. He's so oh interesting. And you know. He's I always think people with a Twang you know whether the accents from Scotland which would be the brogue obviously North Carolina where he grew up on. He's so interesting to listen to. You know he's played with everybody. He kept in touch because his both sons played. You know with the Modern Day game name. You should get them on working on it. He just seems like such a like the story you just told there. He was like an authoritative figure in golf. I mean he was he was an Alpha. uh-huh push people around a little bit. Yeah he did and and He I I had to talk to about him. Some about it old palm about the golf course designed Zayn there. We were have an argument about something with a couple of people so I said I WANNA meet you face to face. Because he's not really a texter you know. He's just about eighty years old not quite but I said to him. I said you know your wife. Maria used to tell you that look in your eye and and he got famous for that. And I'll tell you what when I said to my i. I look in his eye to say something really intimidate so to play against him in a singles Ryder Cup match. I wouldn't want to A. B. B.. That guy what you know you said you started on the wooden shafted putters and stuff there. How much has technology in putting change? We we talk a lot about the. The Golf Ball changed the the drivers getting bigger. And how far guys hit it but has technology in putting numbed the skill of it at all in your opinion. There's a little bit of evidence that you can see from the shot linked data. That's showing that players are improving slightly Across the board on on from putting distance services whether three feet six feet ten feet and and would you say. That's the the skill of the player. Would you say the economy's better Green surfaces this is our smoother. Soft spikes are taking out a lot of the marks that were in the Greens you can fix. And that's I don't know I- Greens is are definitely better. You can see the grasses and what's really better as Bermuda grass now where we we use to dread going to Bermuda Grass Greens now. It's your favorite love. I love putting from unit. Don't you which I would have. Never said many came from the West. But now I've been down in Florida for two years like I. I wonder if I'm only Bermuda. Well well you used to be worried about grain particularly You know the Common Bermuda Grass is that you saw before and now these new strains of teagle. It'll war of celebration you're like this looks like a carpet. There doesn't look like anything irregular here. The colors are all similar It's it's definitely helping helping players but I it's a combination of Scotty Cameron. When I first started seeing him in the mid ninety s he had a patent on the speed of his cameras? It was so high speed and he could slow down everything about the stroke that you could see the collision of the putter with the ball. How it left the putter head uh-huh and how the loft affected the ball Then you could obviously see the entire stroke in the body but I think that if you looked at the evolution in a loss on putters back then on those putters the calamity Jane putter. The Bobby Jones used would have had a lot more loft The sweet spot was really really hard to find Grasses were higher seat needed more loft hands where four a wristy stroke very stroke so now I think you'll you'll see. Yeah I mean even from your when you came out on tour to now on tour. Do you see putting being despite all the other outside factors that technology. That's actually in putters. Do you see a big difference. Yes and what I see now is with a mallet style. Putter said have the the Mo is so much that you can hit the ball off center a little bit and it never twists. It's easier to swing their almost self swinging. I think the drawback to those and they're heavy is there's not as much feedback as you might have got from a traditional blade putter whether it was a eight hundred two or what I use is the facts day that Laguna model. But I would say we're going to see as the younger our players continue to use putters that Adam Scott or just Thomas Rory mcelroy use that are more mallet Don't twist as much you'll see more more vape more face balanced I had trouble. I resisted switching to a mallet island. I keep getting bigger and bigger for me just I just feel like it it it. It's a hurdle to get over initially and then it's like. Oh yeah why wouldn't almost. Why wouldn't you have? And I see in the in the juniors at Fox we do the US junior boys as we see the US junior girls. We saw the younger players. There's more and more mallets now than I've ever seen. If you guys are listening to this podcast. That means that it is here. Torah sauce season. I five is here. It is live on our youtube channel.

The facts in what you mentioned talking about video there on. I'd never knew headed by the patent on the camera camera speed. God what a pioneer is is. I guess I should say what did you learn about seeing. You're putting stroke on camera. I don't know if for the first time or how far into your career before you really started studying. You're putting on Cameron. What did you learn about it? Well did I ever show you the putting chart on the yellow pad piece of paper hunting so I'll show it to you while we're talking because it's remarkable and I had to giant giant influences on my putting career and one of them was a conversation with Ben Crenshaw and one of them was the first time I went into Scotty Cameron's airman's when I saw my stroke when a little bit straight back and then I kind of went over the top and cut across it now. I had done that most of my life and I was doing this talk Latte Latte for last year's PGA show. And I'M GONNA show this to you now. I wish I could post this. I can somehow episode so so here on the left column or the year I started nineteen eighty-four and that's just the years I played and the I stat they kept in putting was putts per round. So you know if you hit ten Greens you'd have normally only less putz parameters you ship it in their closer iron chefs we go. So here's my rankings. The first five years in Putts per round and they didn't have the PUTTS per green in regulation stat. That later came came out so I was sixty nine forty seven thirty fourth twelfth so a good year in eighty seven eighty eight eighty nine. I was sixty six and one twelve. So you'd say that was a good putter. Maybe a little bit better than we're not extraordinary and I met crenshaw here. Now he had. He had won his masters in eighty-five and is that correct. He did AH fighting for your eighty five so I talked to crenshaw here in Orlando at the the Disney tournament at the palm course. It was late on a Tuesday afternoon. In a buddy of mine named Gary Harry Smith who used to work as an instructor David leadbetter wanted to video crenshaw stroke in east. He asked me if I would ask Ben. I was nervous here. I am a fifth year player. I knew French masters champion but not well enough but it was a quiet afternoon and he was gracious as you would expect and I said Hey ben Brad Faxon my friend Gary wants to video your stroke and this is back then. VHS Tape Camera and Crenshaw said sure and he goes. He actually admitted to us that. I'm not playing that well not putting that well crenshaw said that to me. I'm like oh I would never say that and I go. What's wrong is I'm stroking added knots through it? which is hard to decipher? What does that mean? It's SORTA so Terek and I'm like so he goes. I said what do you do when you feel like that. Well I try to make my backswing longer and my follow through a little bit shorter and a lower I try try to let my knees my head my knees move on. Yeah Gary Smith almost dropped the PUTTER and I go. You allow your head and yeah he says it's a little mini. Swing the putting being stroke. He says there's weight shift and stuff and it. It keeps me softer when ipod tension. And he you know He. He had that putting stroke when he when he took get back. That's free flowing and the putter Kinda had a little loop got up in the air and he dropped it on. The ball used gravity so I mean just to continue the stat so Africa crenshaw. I went from one hundred. Twelfth Eighth twenty-second Fourteenth Fourth Thirty Fourth. And then we add this other stat because this was I was always tall. I don't have a lot of PUTTS. Missile the Greens because they hit it great and then the PUTTS per green regulation was supposed to be a more accurate measurement of how you putted so only the Greens you hit and regulation so here I. It was one twentieth seven twenty six hundred eleven to a very inconsistent 'til I meet crenshaw. I went thirteen fifty eight second thirty eighth and then Scotty came to titles title list in ninety five and we started working on Potter's and strokes and it was really the first time like I said that I'd seen my stroking this high speed and so this gets is pretty good ninety five. I went from thirty fourth to six first first third second first fourth eleventh eighteen sixty fifth ninth and so those last three years four zero zero five zero six. I was forty three forty four forty five years old so that old adage that you only put well when you're young My my streak here from I call it a street ninety five to whatever those years when I was never outside the top twenty and won the title three times I was twenty four thirty four thirty five thirty six thirty seven so you can get better as you get older so I learned a lot about my stroke from Scotty and then what I liked the most. I won the title on the other stat putts per green regulations. So we didn't have the strokes gain putting I was gonNA say until my final three years and I was winding down. I tore my acl three. So I played injured for a while but ninety fifth. That's a second nine second and fifth and even though I didn't feel like I putted my best for the last six or seven years. I played on the tour. I think the only two guys that were in front of me were Luke Donald and tiger woods. So was I potter. That's what pisses me off. People say no I mean I practice that discounts are just everything you've ever done as a kid that yeah and when I asked the who the people that commanded the most of your respect for putting I was expecting you say crenshaw I knew there was a crenshaw tie. I don't think I knew that that whole story to that woods strokes gained. Have you know that didn't come into play until looks like two thousand. I think was the first year they started using. Would that have helped you would that have you know there wasn't the putting status. Just I guess. Did you have any other data back than that. Not really better than putting average because there are some flaws in that stat there. Sure sure are on all of them. And you could. You could say that There may be there's flaws in in strokes gained but it never tells you in in what statistics. Never tell you is where your head is before you hit your shot. Yeah right so I mean if you if you made up. A criteria of strokes gained attitude How would that affect or change the way you putted her? You looked when you did it and I'm trying to find pictures. I scroll through here at my favorite one of Ben Crenshaw. Ah you'll find in a minute. But his motion was so good. I think I looked at stats or thought about putting outing when I putted great if I didn't Putt well I tried to throw those feelings out the window what you you kind of look at your stats there as you as you approach the end of your PGA tour career career. What was it what was it like to essentially end your competitive PGA worker? How did you know it was time? was that a difficult thing to process. What was that time I period so I I remember being? I was in a gym in my basement and my house in Rhode Island and the was forty forty two years old. I just played a great year to three and I had this kind of meat. Head trainer is paying forty five bucks an hour and he'd come in my gym and we do crazy stuff and not crazy stuff but just you know working on whatever we were lifting weights and doing stuff and then this particular Monday of Thanksgiving thing I think I was eleventh or thirteenth in whatever the world ranking was then and I did this stupid exercise. I can't believe I did. I've never seen anybody you do it since but I. I was using a six pound medicine by I had finished the workout. I was in really good shape. I was forty two and he said to me. Hey stand up squeeze he's the ball between your ankles and I want you to jump and throw it to me with your feet. A why would I do that. And he goes. This is a lower abbots or size and. I'm like what likes to show me. How so he shows me how to discuss pre strong looks like Popeye and I did it a couple of times I got going on my. Yeah that's definitely low APPS and I'm like I did the fifth or sixth one and he said just ten so I did. I'm put it between my ankles jump but I didn't squeeze hard enough so the ball state on the ground but I jumped so my right foot landed on top of the ball and And I felt my knee. Just turn like a can opener just going in slow motion around. I'm like Oh my God I storm form. ACL and I I you know I. It didn't hurt as much as I thought it would hurt but it hurt. Yeah I'm grabbing. My knee goes come on. Get up go to finish them like what. I've never seen him. Since that day. Yeah And and it was funny I was. I used to be a squash player and I went up to watch the. US Open squash at Harvard. And I saw the entire baseball team doing that. Exercise but that the long answer to that question about limited I see my career wind down. I didn't know that that would be you know I was playing pretty good. I didn't create corporate deals going. I was making some good money and I panicked because tore my acl. I was in the math. I was in every tournament and I didn't know what to do. This was November. I knew from. ACL's from players is that played other sports. You're out for the year and I'm thinking I'm not gonNa miss an entire year and I asked all these doctors call Dr Anderson Alabama. The top doctor and Boston At mass general and finally this one guy named George Burns Aaron who worked for Andrew's years ago said you know you're a golfer. He didn't know as professional. Duffy's if you play golf you don't need an acl like what he's just rehab. Your Neil a little bit and just you know if you if you don't need to play sports you'll be fine without acl. So that gave me like a little sort of breath like okay. I don't have to play here for. Let's take three or four months off and see if I can play without my acl. And I I got to play. In that year's master's you know I kind was limited. A little bit by my leg got strong and he said by the way he said. If you do your your rehab it'll make if you end up having surgery it'll make that rehab better when you get out of surgery because your leg will be strong and I waited a couple years to have the surgery. Might kind of right foot went nominee this still felt crappy so I ended up having the surgery for quality of life like to play a lot of racquets racquets sports so I did it in two thousand and five and then I had to have it done again in two thousand seven. I had microfracture top another acl. So that's kind of. When I lost I was out for eleven months and I kinda liked being away then I had that transition from forty seven to fifty where I was playing a little bit that no man's Land No? TV opportunities were coming along I snuck into an event By Tommy Roy at the Houston Open on Thursday Friday. When nobody knew what was going on I said this was kind of fun? Well so from a competitive standpoint. Did you feel like you were you. Did you feel you. Were leaving anything on the table or were you okay with like okay now. It's time to to step back. I just always wonder what what that mindset is like. Golf is a sport. You can play for so long and I can tell see how much you still love golf. That's why I was curious what that without a so I exercise like it bugged me and I haven't seen an athlete that played well for long term. Were didn't bother them when they knew. I mean look at Tom Brady right now. He's struggling at forty two. You know what team I gotta go to next one. He's one super bowls and played better than almost anyone who's ever played the game. I was nowhere near that. But I I I. You'll always wonder what would have happened if I didn't didn't hear myself. How long much longer would have been competitive? I won the tournament in Hartford at a in two thousand and five is a forty four year old. Maybe forty five Because after all so it's I was in good shape I could still play You know having the ability to chip and PUTT was great. But it bugged me. You know I I didn't and I even played some senior golf. I played well early out there and then got more involved with TV was still one of the few players out there that had a kid home and I played for so long seven hundred eight career pete so so so so long to be away from home. That's that's kind of where I'm all getting at is. We're we started talking about the you know the champion's tour and everything and the what drives guys you know in this era where people have made money playing golf to you. Know Oh keep being on the road so much and it's something that I think I kind of struggle with and it's an interesting topic with you. Know Jim furic Ernie Els Phil Mickelson graduating waiting into this potential champion's tour era. I'm just curious as to how you handled that time period and I don't know what the future that's Chris. It's it's interesting. You're saying that now because Zyad Ayman Lynch on my show yesterday on the just the facts radio show that I do and and amen written the article I thought about Phil Mickelson. And what what's up for Phil and how does that affect does it affect the the senior tour and I said to Greg mcglaughlin a ten years ago before I was out it there. I said you know you guys ought to think about moving the senior tour age to fifty five because as players continued to work out As is money continues to grow on the PGA tour guys are going to be able to be competitive passer fifties you see guys being competitive on. PJ Tour Nineteen and twenty years old. What's going to say you can't to keep them competitive when they're fifty is strain on their body? Is it the strain on travel Family life intruding other business opportunities. But I don't think if I'm Phil Mickelson. I hate to say this because this affects me as a player and as a friend to so many of these guys I'd stay on the PGA tour. I'd go when you're first. US Open In the guys that have straddled both tours. It doesn't work very well. You Know Davis Love. Vj Singh I admire the heck out of Bernard Langer I. I don't know how he decided 'cause he was still competitive. As basser champion British Open. He was competitive in. And he just took this dive into the champion's tour and Sam going ahead. I I'm never gonNA play other events of the majors. Yeah what Did you know that you wanted to go into broadcasting for a long time I mean when did that interest start really getting drummed up and as it. We really didn't talk much about Fox or anything on the last episode. And there's a lot of pick your brain on with that but you know that was something you wanted to do two things to answer that question when I first got my card the PGA tour offered players Some some PR help from a woman Andrea Kirby she used to work for ESPN and she interviewed all of us in not not many people showed up. I remember Tom Byrum. John Cook Mark. There were people that were already good on camera and good on their feet And it was away. She said to to how to answer questions the right way. How when a viewer is watching you? Maybe this is gonNA help you Whether it's endorsement income Just your cue rating aiding whatever And she asks questions you know there were say half a dozen of us at the table and she had this one single cameron. She'd ask you a question like what what do you expect them from your life on the PGA tour very opened up question. She's I want a minute long answer and I- rambled on and on and on about what I expected and I went and on and on she goes congratulations graduations. You just completed the longest sentence in the history of interviews and I never stopped to talk. I never paused a beat and then she showed us an interview of a hockey player. Sound off and she told us to body language made the most difference of anything when a players given an interview. And you saw this guy His tolerance neck helmet off in the locker room after a game. And you can see answering the question you see the microphone. And she's after this thirty seconds associates. What do you think just happened? And we're like As baby just fell out of the trip and died you know. Somebody's family got dizzy worsely and she goes no he. Just scored a goal triple overtime Stanley Cup to win game seven. I'm like wow so that was like a precursor like okay. I know how to answer question better because of this and how to act and then when I was hurt in two thousand and seven seven I had had my second. ACL repair microfracture. So I was in a kind of big sling sort of thing crutches and Tommy Roy who was running Deutsche Bank televised championship for NBC. Asked me as a player consultant to the newly renovated. Golf course up there with Gil Hanse. Would you just come and sit next next to Johnny and Dan for a segment and that tournament ran remember. Friday Monday was Labor Day Finish and this was A. He asked me to do this on Sunday Sunday so it was a third round and I thought he was going to give me a segment. I stayed up there for two hours and I didn't just talk about the golf course renovations they were asking me about players shots shots and and he kind of said. Hey that was really awesome you know thanks for stand up. I'm like Oh that was cool for me. It was fun to be up there and he gave me. I don't know he wasn't trying to get an opportunity to see if I was going to be good and television there but sitting next to To Dan Hicks one of the best in the business and Johnny Miller who was the the best analyst Golf's had It was it was kind of cool to be and then I think that's where I kinda go. Maybe I could. It's amazing some of the stories you hear about how small mall the opening window is and how something like that. Jason Bone is doing some stuff on TV this coming year. And I don't want to take all the credit for it but a lot of people didn't know about how how funny he was until you came on our podcast last year. Now he's doing some stuff with sky and doing stuff CBS. I guess we'll start with. Sky Is going to be doing some stuff with CBS BS. I think The this year well hope that information. So you said that because Jeff sluman a great friend of mine and he's just turned sixty played on the champions or very successfully made made as many cuts as almost anybody and he got asked to do an event for time. He Roy and you get thrown into the fire. Nobody gives you any instruction at on my my one story story about time we were giving me instructions really funny but jeff was going to be on course which is hard to do because you get back pet the head so you can't see really what the viewer scene you'll have a monitor and he got fired. After the first day I thought Jeff sluman would be an unbelievable guy on TV and and you know we try to touch on this every time that we tend to talk to you guys like we don't people at home don't understand all the things that are going on before it gets turned to you like there's someone in your ear talking and you don't you don't have as long as you want to talk like you have a window. You don't really know how long that window is going to be at all and you gotTa talk and Hey you gotta be like insightful entertaining you gotTa have the characteristics of speech that you're talking about right here and say the right thing gets a lot to balance a critical of a lot of things in TV. It's never like hey I wanna do that job because it looks really hard did I ever did. I tell you on the first show about the first time I worked for NBC and the notion the notion story. No I have not heard this is pretty pretty good and I was going to work for. NBC In two thousand and ten. I wasn't fifty at For several high profile events a World Golf Championship Players Championship the US Open and some of the Fedex events. And I thought this was a great transition for me. Getting ready turned fifty so my first events the World Golf Championship at wral wral which was newly renovated Gil? Hanse course and it was one of those events where the players really didn't play much of a practice extra snow program so all of them showed up on Wednesday to play seventy guy as a field so I show up. Tuesday didn't see anybody on there all day Wednesday. We go to production meeting Wednesday Day night. And I'm I'm like I'm in outside tower now. I didn't know that the farther your Taros away from eighteen the more you are lower on the totem pole. And I was the the Peon and I said to Tommy Roy afterwards I said okay. Listen I don't know what I'm doing. I had four monitors in my tower on fourteen. I had the fourth of fifth thirteenth on the fourteenth holes. What am I supposed to do? So he's he's kind of like mad that I'm asking me takes out this scratch piece of paper rights number one in pencil and writes no shit rule. What's happening to us? Don't ever say anything on. TV that's could make the viewer go. No Shit and I'm like okay. So what do you mean. Well Frank nobble. Does this all the time I go. What does he do he does well? He'll say Ernie els is sitting at chip chip at. It's rolling. It stopped the picture. Shosha that don't ever say that fair enough and then he says a few other things like you can't say sand trap you. I have to say bunker can't say a pin place we have to say. Hold Location. You can't say three. Some you have to say a grouping any kind of goes through a couple of the. USDA he goes. You'll be finally passed me in the back and kicks up so the next day I day it's golf channel and novel is actually in the tower with Kelly. Tillman and the first I ten minutes. They don't show a shot on any of my holes so he says to me Tommy Roy we're coming out of break. USA Okay. We're GONNA come back. You're going to say while we're away Ian Poulter after on number nine. That was a par three over the water. So I I had. I had five nine thirteen and fourteen. So as I hear this one woman's voice in my head set go Thirty back in like a TV show or some right thirty backer denier twenty back and then at fifteen time he roy starts counting down he goes. Make sure you get the named tournament where we are. WHO's leading and give us a big welcome back and he says all this the countdown fifteen? So I'm like okay. We're back to you. You've poulter number nine. I go big welcome back. Where the W championship An pollsters tee shot here our number nine and he's GonNa make sure you stop talking before he hits so he's saying all of this stuff at once so now this is on tape and I'd say it was while we were away so poulter hits his five are the balls and flight and it lands like this and I go a beautiful shot to three feet no shit you can see that on. TV and three feet. Now Live Poulter for Birdie I go now live poultry for Birdie. I was so all messed up. And that that's how I started and I tell us a lot of like corporate outings because people have no idea how hard it is and the funniest this part was there. There are certain times when you're allowed to say that this is on tape. And there's certain times replays like this is live so on the the thirteenth toll which is one of the most difficult difficult par threes on the tour. Robert Allenby was getting ready to hit his tee shot and it was on tape. I didn't know I was playing as if it was live. And I hadn't seen my monitor senator to see that this shot had already been hit so the OS Allenby tee shot. Thirteen Robert Allenby here with his five. Would and I had this one nugget on the whole you always had nugget This whole on tour and regulation and the wind was blowing. You can see amy well to the left here allowing for the wind we hits shot lands hands on the green goes in the hole for a one and I go crazy. And I'm like Oh my gosh. So then we go to break and the whole teams like in my headset gone. Oh my God you played it like you. Didn't no that sounded so good. I wouldn't want to say I had no idea wasn't lying but I learned a lot and then Johnny Miller came in on the weekend with Dan Hicks and it was fun. Is it really really different. The atmosphere the vibe and everything doing let's say let's say. US Open men's ends US Open for Fox like is it. I think what the what is helps. Fox Be so successful. One of the factors is you're on the air for so long and that's hard on the broadcasters in the production at times minds but you guys are given a lot more room to roam I think is is that fair to say yeah. I think it's really fair to say and because it's only life one. PGA Tour like event with PGA tour players the US Open Nobody expects they're not looking for us. Right Awesome shopping shopping. Oh Yeah you guys are here again. you know. BUXTON countless super bowls in world series in this. He loves golf. I mean people don't mcquaid Joe Buck's voice with golf sometimes but he loves to play. I mean we. We've gone out. Hit Balls at night under lights off Matt's sweating shirts shirts on tucked and have a ball And he he wants to be the best golf announcer he he's he's so driven And he has people are there that are helping him with statistics and stuff I love being around him and he he he's been like a guy that I can bounce some ideas off of and like like you said Shane Bacon and I work as a team together. And if we're doing ten or twelve hours live per day for everyday that's a Lotta time for anybody to be on camera but having acing unreal to work next to joe is worked. I think the two men boosts better boots than three man booth which we had for a long time. It's less complicated and I gotTA give credit to Shane Bacon. Because he's out onto more than anybody at the Fox team. He knows every player. He knows their quirks and I think he first of always good looking guy with a great voice that always. That's too much here no kidding. He's very very talented. And I I I love seeing like how you guys work together but I think just in general To turn this around to start fluffing you here. I think your perspective for somebody like appreciates golf courses as much as you do. Understand architecture has obviously all the playing experience a major championships in years on the PGA tour as well as your work with instruction. I think it's a very a unique. You have a very unique set of skills to be able to bring to a broadcast where you are given some room to roam was me tying a bunch of points in together there and I think I think it goes back to our producer. Mark loomis worked for ABC in the nineties. He put Valdo an amazing or together. which was you know if you thought about then? Those two guys played against each other Ryder Cup captain against each other they. They weren't best friends but they made it work. And he's kind of low key But he's incredibly audibly inciteful and sharpen in the Fox technology. The you've seen some of the things we've done with picture in picture screen this the tracer have more tracer cameras At the US Open the pebble which I thought was one of the best Uso but you could ever watched not just because Gary Woodland and his great finish but that drone cameras from the from the we had. I think Nancy even commented when he came on our set. We had eighty eighty something cameras that week in in in re Nance was shaken and said he goes when we do the. At and T. CBS. We have eight cameras for the entire week and we had eighty plus one course it shows it did show the four K.. Or the Ford. DT Beautiful said this to Jeff New Barth actually At Onis he's on the podcast last year but it was right after the. US Open. I've I've been to number seven. I've played number seven at Pebble Beach. I've been there multiple times. I never understood how. So far downhill. It was until I saw the drone shot from off the cliff and I was just like Whoa. And that's where I feel like you could suggest this dilemma soon would happen golf. The the camera angles and golf can make such a big difference on your appreciation for what players are going through and I understand that you have to have certain cameras in certain spots to cover the whole term but there was the puck was shown on. NBC of Tiger on the front the front of the Green and Royal Melbourne was a replay. And it would just from far away. But it's very zoomed and you could see the depth of the green and the challenge that he was handling. I'm like wow different. Looks in golf would help so much viewing even if it doesn't have to be every single shot. I'm not saying completely flipped the Gulf Golf Card upside down but some different looks seems like something that Fox's willing to embrace and that's it's Kinda I'm getting at is like you guys can pop in for it's not once a year you do other. Obviously you come to the. US Women's is open. You cover a lot of emitter golf but it seems like you guys are willing to try pretty much anything. Well I think the fact that we only do one golf event a year Mo might help help us are willing to experiment you know. Obviously they're they're strong and football and baseball so they're not used to doing the same thing over and over again in for the venues at a different place every time so you have to be unique to the venue And there's really no place quite like Pebble beach when you have some sun there and the cliffs cliffs and that's what I think a lot of the flag that Fox has caught one first year. Being a first year was tough but it was brand new venue. It was very different for people to I appreciate and get to was not very intimate to the viewer and same a two years later with Erin hills like is this a lot of variables in an unfamiliar venue. I mean I think the the the US Open's that have gone. The Best Shinnecock for coverage wise was made pebble was amazing and then going back to wing foot. It's it. All has a consistent through align to it. Yeah Wings foot will be amazing because first of all it's wing for there's been some beautiful renovation. There again Hanson's done some work removed. A lot of trees a change some fairway lines and Mark Loomis. Our producer is a member there and he. I don't know if you knew this or not. loomis was the standard bearer nineteen eighty-four walking the last group with Fuzzy Zeller. No way so. He was there when when Norman Made that big PUTT across the green. That fuzzy thought was for Birdie it was for par Fuzzy Fussy wave the towel and you can see the pictures. Lewis's stand right there with his bowl cut next to fuzzy so it's going to make it number. Oh Yeah We. We'll definitely got a time for it. Yeah well what is. Let's let the viewers in for wing foot. Why is you know the people that haven't seen it since? Oh six what is going to look different about it I'm not sure how many trips you've made up. There have been there recently but what we look for with this coming. US Open well. We did the The US senator four-ball there Actually on the other course there's the east and the less courses there and they they played both courses maybe in the qualifier but we First of all I expect this to be a monster. I I expect to be. No mercy out there. I think the course is going to be What a lot of play players former players especially curtis strange works for us at Fox they want this to be a a slugfest? They want you to to have to hit the fairway the rough is coming back. Rough in some USO that have not had thick rough in. Its this year I if par was always something that was respected. US Open. I think you take par and run here and in the variable there is going to rain if it's wet that always makes makes it whether it's seventy eight hundred yard course or not. The wet always makes it easier for players. But I think this is GonNa be a course where the good players going to have to hit six seven drivers If you don't hit it in the fairway you're not GonNa have a good chance to get it on the Greens and there's been war stories about wing foot going back to Billy Casper and the third par three there where her he laid up short of the green. Just because he didn't WanNa make anything anything worse than four. Because if you start hitting across to play Ping Pong And it's been you you know one of those every hole there it looks like a US Open hole where there's a lot of straight holes and you can see. I think what makes a course really intimidating really people. Don't talk about this. A lot is color alert. Change so when when you see the fairway cut and that might be a lighter green color and then you see the the distinct I cut and then the the sick ride dark green. And you're going. Oh my gosh and it makes it look even narrower than it is well it looks a lot different now now to act as I'd never saw wing foot before they took all the trees out but I was up there two years ago or something and it looks a lot different now with the trees out and the fairway still narrow. There's a ton of rough that your eyes will see when you stand up on T.. Ball is that what you're getting out there and what happens. In those situations I think players will tend to drive better Whether the fairways if say twenty three or four yards across which would be a typical with for us. Open very when there's trees Medina maybe old Medina Old oakmont I thought players would drive it better when there were trees there because it gave a picture. And now when it's more when there's less corridors now you can shape it any way you want. I think it becomes harder guy. Think think players like the whole to tell them what to do rather than have to decide what to do. I can definitely see that. Well I need. I don't know how much longer your time we have an idea. We need to get to this story. we talked about it right after we stopped recording. Last time you told a great story that involved The bathroom through in on the first time for us. You want another bathroom. You claim you had a really good. You told me a really good one and my. It's maybe my life goal to get you to tell the podcast about the construction site. Oh no this isn't a former life the Greater Greensboro. Open the G. G. O.. my I I live Ex. ex-wife lived in a little town. In North Carolina called Arcadia and from Arcadia to fairway oaks in Greensboro. was about out of forty five to fifty minute drive and this is way before. GPS In my father-in-law at the time loved maps and he had those spiral spiral notebook maps that were segregated by towns. You know so they were really dense with roads and he would show me on this map how to get through these little country roads hallway quick because he was kind of a sales guy repair guy and he would beyond these roads all the time and he found a way to get there like two minutes quicker with no traffic delights and bouncing between highways and town roads and I actually started enjoying it but I think I may be told you in the first our story that I always had an act of stomach right and you can call it whatever you want but breakfast time when I when I had to go somewhere in the morning I made a lot of pit stops on the away in this one particular day I had white pants on. What are you laughing at? And they were those lights pants that you have to add white underwear underwear because you're going to see the underwear right so I'm driving there. And then I got that little tug or whatever it is and I'm like Oh boy I need a place to go and I'm in the middle of places this is where there's the you know if there were cell phones or wouldn't have been reception and I'm like there's no bathroom around here and there's no way to like hope you're gonNA run into gas station and I was zipping by this one house that had like a chain link fence around an inside. The chain link fence will support all that because the house was under construction or something and it was. It was an older. How's it wasn't like it was a new house where the new at this was like one of those ones? You kind of had to put a pair of pliers on your nose when you went in there and as I pulled over over my car my car to the side of the road and there wasn't even a place to park on the side of the road because it they all dropped off into where there was drainage and I left it running. I think I got a jump over this fence and I'm climbing up there and you know there's polls and then really at the top of chain link fences there usually snug. This thing was loose so it was really a hard fenced in westall. So I'm jumping over. It and I thought I was pretty agile. I'm sure a lot of people laugh that as going over the polls starts swinging in a little and I catch the top of the chain. Lincoln it rips my pants from needed crotch. It was eight ten inches long and I didn't care because it was coming out. I running over this bathroom You know I didn't have time to check if there were toilet paper rolls in there and and I'm like thank God. It was like a little bit and I I was there for a little while now. I'm looking down on. I gotta go to the golf course. I'm teeing off in an hour I have. What am I gonNA do so No cellphone Africa. I was at I I get to the course and only thing I had was like reindeer so I had to take my white pants off Put on rain gear and it was perfect. It was eighty five degrees and sunny in every what are you doing. And then so the whole world knew stopped. Good a bathroom ripped my pants and It's one of many stories that I have to say what was the one that came straight to your mind when I was bringing up the topic. Oh well the Buick Open. This was an amazing story. I I didn't know it at the time but I had an allergy kinda like wheat gluten and dairy and the guy that I used to stay debut. Gobin was the tennis pro. Their world kills and he lived out at Lake Fenton in his favorite thing was beer and pizza. And that's what we see every night and he lived in this lake where you can water ski Beer Pizza Beer Pizza so I've obviously early Thursday morning tea. Time is the two thousand twenty minute ride like Oh my God. I don't feel very good. I had to stop two times times on the way from his house To the court to course and then get to the course. I'm playing. I think I was playing with Andy North and I was full-fledged diarrhea I was losing it and I'm like I don't know if I'm GONNA get the play I Tee Off on number ten and goes sprinting back into the clubhouse come running out hit my second. Check it on the eleventh. hit my t shirt. Run to another portal went seven times on the front nine shot. I think I shot twenty nine. I think I was so this De. Yeah this podcast I love. I love here yet even again and I was taking some low modal or whatever that Modem I was pilot in there. I don't think I went to the bathroom for two months. After but I I did have a doctor tell me well you know why you won that tournament on you because I ended up winning the term shot sixty I five first round and Everybody Shaken head laughing in my group and probably pizza and beer the rest of the week but the This one doctor was friends with Tom. Kite or and he cuts. He said well. You know when you take Lamotta or modem or whatever the stronger the drug is like a Beta blocker. It's just relax. And that's why he won and I ain't got insulted by that. I can come and give me a little credit diarrheal. Four days Everybody like at the master's used to laugh at me because part of my pregame prep was hit balls on the range. Go to PUTT. Run into the men's room and come out and then go right to the I T huh. Paid for the the the men's room on five. We're you better afternoon player then morning still am. I've kind outta the same way. I could see where you're coming from there on that note. I wanted to women. Don't listen to this podcast. No we're about four percent women could WHAT AUGUSTA AUGUSTA UTAH? You mentioned it. There you played in the masters many many times. You hear the latest Roy. Maccarone Jerry Macaroni. Sorry about the masters of me. I'm not sure I have so I was playing at seminole with Mark Lomas was a member there and Jerry. Macaroni and Ayman Lynch and Jerry was one of the guys that tried to get Roy Talk to me about putting a couple of years ago. And Jerry is a good player He's a couple years older than I am and Would you say he's a great player in his own right. Yes that's a broadcaster say it is owned minds aims to know. He hates losing money But he asked me on about the thirteen. Th Hole par three up the hill towards the ocean Brad have you ever played in the masters and I think he knew immediately when he said that he should have said. How many masters did you plan? And then amen was busting my balls my show yesterday because he loved the fact that he saw pain in my face for this for just that one second I and I said well I did. I played in twelve of them so it was funny a month later Brandel Chamblee Brett Quigley. ane was out there and who's Cadillac We're at the tour school and Brandel saw the heard the story and they made a video. Paul Stankowski was innovative. Hey there hey brad we're Outta tour school Did you ever play Emmy Masters so I got the video is laughed and I was in Dallas for some reason. DFW FW changing planes. And I got the my phone and I'm kind of doing a Tom Brady walking doing your video Daniel Tummy and I said well. Hey guys thanks as for the call I did. I did play in Twelve Masters I. I don't know how I never had to go to tour school though. I sent that back at them which she was which was pretty funny. Well what did you see throughout the course of your career. How much that golf course change from the early nineties into the two thousand s thank? uh-huh play the masters at all in the eighty S. When was you know I was ninety? Two I played the course baby once but when I was watching the the masters and I I loved watching Sevi- player he watch Jack I mean I thought you know I was just starting and watch golf in the mid Seventy S and seventy five in particular but then watching savvy and Tom Watson kind of dominate for a few years I love the fact that there were no trees. There was no rough and you could angles import. Then in the distance of all what was significantly lesson The way the Kenzi designed the course. That was certainly a strategy for every three hole in every hole location so every day chose It was important where you were. You had to think backwards when you played there as I I sing I understand you know. Ninety seven when Tiger airmailed it over the bunkers on eighteen to give himself a little bit shot. The world change that really that Pre Pre pro. Lv One The WE WE Masters Committee has to do something to protect golf. Protect the field. But you gotta remember if you think about Augusta national and even then if the course were seven thousand or seventy one hundred yards. How many of those holes were severely downhill a couple of the par? Fives think about how. Much downhill number two is. How much downhill fifteen? Second shot was downhill. Obviously ten nine. You're you're getting an extra fifty sixty yards so those four holes is played two hundred yards less than if they were flat in the weren't many holes like a team that we're back up a hill so even though the course might have presented itself on the card carded seventy one hundred played significantly less than that. So I think that if Mackenzie came back and Jones came back and saw what's evolved. It looks a lot like a US. Open course Would the addition of the trees in the fairways and even though the grass isn't long in the rough. It's it makes it much more different shot because you're not spinning ball out of that rough you have to allow for role in. You rarely have a clear shot from the taller. The second cut if you will because it's the second cuts really just under a lot of the trees on almost every hole. Yeah you can say yes on your correct on one. You're correct onto that if you hit it to the right on three that tree reese Nikonov under you. There's a lot of holes where that seven for sure In you see a Lotta guys that when they hit the road there kinda almost hit left on nine punching around trying to curve. Serve the ball. Yeah so the. The rough has made a factor in more difficult approaches. But it also saves some balls left on ten won't roll all the way down the hill and make pitching a little bit easier here who seeing the timeframe of your career playing through that. Just how. How much did it change? I thought you might be basically. The points are making their and I'm transitioning that into talking about about what we saw from Royal Melbourne at the Presidents Cup of how much of that you got to watch plot I I kinda struggled with you know the concepts. You're talking about there about like. What Tiger did it ninety seven how that had to change everything? I feel like royal. Melbourne never really responded to the distance that you know what happened with distance and holds up still so so well today I mean it was unbelievable watching the President's Cup at that and how much you know even a casual fan can learn within like thirty minutes of watching. Oh you don't need to crush on this course like that very first hole the further you hit it sometimes the worst spot you're into and I'm just I'm just wondering how Golf Works and the response to the ball. Going really far was to make every whole way longer. They're almost better off keeping it. On the short little playgrounds rounds and figuring out ways to challenge guys with the firmness of slopes and how balls rolled out and played. It's funny you say that when I was in school at Furman University which was not a great men's golf program but it was. We had a good course on campus and one of the things that are coach tried to do to help. Our players with confidence was have US play one of qualifiers from the forward tease back. Then we were allowed to say women's teas but we would never shoot lower from the foreign. Ta's because all of a sudden there was a strategy that we didn't you know wasn't just take the head cover from bash it down there and if you go play some of the great courses down here particularly in Palm Beach Everglades which is an old seth raynor? Course maybe on seventy five acres maybe and maybe sixty one hundred yards holy smokes. Does that make you think your way around a golf of course and I agree with you one hundred percent. So th there's today there's got to be the blend of a whole set Make a decision on the T. of mmediately Whether it's it's going to be a driver or not and what. How close do you want to get and if you go back to the Nineteen ninety-five Samatar Newport Country Club in Rhode Island with a senior? US Open's going to be this year. they don't use arrogation on their fairways only on Tees and Greens and this particular year. When Tiger beat Buddy Marucci the final billy harmon was the the head professional then and he said it was remarkable to watch some of these holes? That were three hundred and twenty or thirty yards watching players from fifty yards not be able to hit a shot and keep it on the green and Royal Melbourne has stood the test of time not only because of its architecture and severe Greens In around the Greens with that bunkering in the in the Australian bunkering that they have. If if you're playing those shots from the wrong spot in the fairway because of the firmness of the Greens you struggle island. And I think that's lost a little bit and if you do miss fairways at Royal Melbourne. It's there's no guarantee that you're going to get a good life. No not not at all I mean. Some of the rough there was very bare. It was kind of more native area than it was rough. And you could hit recovery shots but like holy crap you did not want to be up the left in the rough on that very I hole just watching that first hole was just a spectacle and what I think this is a hey even using this phrase but what I think think McKenzie and Jones were after with Augusta was like what we just saw at role Melbourne. And that's almost one hundred years after Augusta came out. So that's why a lot of people pull think that you know Gulf can't be like it wasn't real number and their role model is so so rare but I just wonder if you know Augusta decided had to pass to go go down and they went down this one that I I think makes it less interesting to watch. It's still of course the greatest tournament in the world there is. The masters was always my favourite tournament to play Because you had to be so creative with your shots at the. I think the fact that you play watch that on. TV The same yes. Of course every time the same time of year it's an and it can play firm and fast and that's when the scores are are the highest the worst and at Royal Melbourne it was such a compelling event to watch. I think Ernie els comes away as even though he was the losing cat he tees or losing but he won a lot. There in stature improved his team which is harder organized because it's international He's way down in the depth of field with talent on paper paper but to to have Sunday him in. ABM answer these guys really answer a bell To come out come together and give that a star studded team the. US had a real challenge. Was it was great golf and boy. Could we use some of that every week gonNA got. Yeah what Just to kind of touch on a recent current event that we have talked at great length in this podcast on but And I think people are sick of hearing US talk about from a professional golfer. What you thought of the way? This patrick read situation has played out over the last couple of months. I think it's really. It's bad for the Games. It's certainly bad for Patrick He's incredible talent masters champion. Obviously it was fun to watch. Patrick hit shots. You know he we can cut a shot off he can curve the ball both directions But there's a lot of selfishness in him and and you know troubles fall followed him around in his career. Whoa in the two colleges that he went to post masters win there were incidents with other players? That the sadness that he he doesn't have a relationship with his family family. It's remarkable to me that he kind of got away with something that every single player the first thing you know in the first thing you learn about this this great game as you play the balls lies unless there's clear cut We're we're playing the ball up because it's rain or conditions. Don't allow the ball to be played down. That's it's in every single player's head you play. The ball lies and there can be confusion when you have wasters versus bunkers but we know everyone. Everyone knows that you're not allowed to do that everyone. There's no exception. There's no player including Patrick re. That didn't know that you can't do that. Their videos resurface of shot shot that he played similar similarly to that priory couple years before. And you know. The tour doesn't want to have controversy. They don't WanNa have slugger white half to go and talk about Here's a player. That willingly do so bad. A rule so you know and everybody's trying to avoid the C word aren't they were and I know even Jay Monahan who's a close friend and a fantastic man He he's. He's warned people about saying Patrick. Read cheated There has to be intent In order accused. Something call somebody. It'd be an cheater I don't know how you can watch that video and say he didn't know what he was doing because he didn't know at once he did it twice clearly created an easier path to the ball from the club Dubai for one second that he couldn't feel the sand under that club. Not For one. Second I don't I don't it'll be interesting to see. How does Patrick a year? Because one of the spectators shouted out cheater just recently at century at the tournament champions coupled with the smallest wallace crowd. He's GonNa fix all year long so at least hostile Well to that point but I think you know I I. I've tried super hard to flip one hundred eighty degrees and see if no side that like. How could I not consider this cheating and what we just said there is what makes such a difference in that? He came off the course and said that he didn't. I know that he touched the sand on the way back. which to me? Like is a a Li- like I don't know what you just said how good players touches and all these things like. There's no possible you couldn't have. I felt that so that right there takes it to like an intent to in my mind of of of saying like he could if he came in and said I had no idea that I touch the ZAND. I've been like okay. Maybe I I guess I'm saying that wrong because he didn't know but I know what you're saying because if you look at the speed at which he made those back swings there was more speed than you would take to make that normal swing and you see players make rehearsals when they're over the ball in a bunker obviously you're not supposed to ground club in. That wasn't a bunker. Jonker said that was an area that you could have rounded your club on. But you can't sweep away the sand you improve your line. It would have been like being in the woods and making back swings to get leaves and branches out of your way. We know you can't do that. You can improve your intended line or stance swing and clearly all those those happened. Yeah and I think by the letter of the Law of the code of conduct they have to crack down on Came Smith who we did. Use The C word in players and allowed to say disparaging things about other players but it is just like step after step. Feels like they're going out of their way to defend him on on this. It's a weird hill to die on. I don't understand it in your day job. This happened with another player is is there anything that play other players are doing saying to that player about this happening. He shunned in the locker room. How would you see this playing out in your? We'll definitely shunned in the locker room and I think the irony of all this is is read read was on that plane The private plane that was going to the President's cup from the hero from Tigers event happened And the players had to you know have them as a team so they couldn't say whatever they wanted to say publicly They had to live with Justin. Thomas kind of played a little prank immediately and and smiled about it so I think if you if you had everybody in a closed room where the word wasn't going to get out. I think the opinions would change. which which is yeah I I I just the fact that the tour has taken no action on I think and we've we said this too? It's like the Court of public opinion is going to be the ruler. Well I I would say this because I I know I could get in trouble too but I wish more people would put the onus on Patrick and not in Cam Smith. Oh my God. Yeah that's like the whole point. Ah kind of said like how you can defend Cam Smith thanking and saying that. I can't defend Patrick. Green what he did in Smith has gotten more almost more of a crackdown. Than what do you think. Appropriate opri at punishment would have been in this situation. Well this is where it's becomes really a difficult situation because you know like you said that the like I said the rule the rule that we know. Is you play the ball as it lies in this game And the other thing is what's the integrity of this game is really important. Part of it is that we're were always era Around to Guard the game in guard. The rules for others VIC- rule violation. I'm supposed to report that. Are I can get penalized and it can happen But it's tough to you know to WANNA willingly turn in an opponent And you're supposed to protect the field. Yeah so it's a tough situation. It's a sad situation that happened And if it happens a couple of times you know there's gotta be some action and I would say that him willingly doing something that is conduct unbecoming. Yeah definitely all right. We're going to wrap it at that. Then we can just gotTa save some things apart three four five five six and seven whenever you come back so but thank you so much for your time. He's Chris Thank you so thanks fetal right club today. That's better than most about. It is better than most expect anything different.

It's we'll tell us a bit about san burns. He's quite progressive as an is being mentioned in dispatches on the show in recent weeks isn't very much sure. Yeah yeah i mean we. When he first came onto the scene even use a player to follow in the race imposts. Oh we really liked it boost that we still do locking. But i was starting to wonder shoot runner. He was making a series of fos. Starts you get well ahead in certain tournaments and then and then finish employees so l. again is my impatience came and he's only twenty four years old. I started to question. His temperament is interview on saturday. Night was so putting already want. What did he say he just looks so nervous. So agitated so angry so so not looking forward to the phone around in the interview. Didn't help you really. He had a really sort of aggressive new. Knock interviews that day. Then does hotel done.

Justin thomas kind of fleetingly threatened to get into contention become quite an another poll wake for dustin in turmoil. But it's not going very well for him. He's not dusty made some progress. The heritage is just who drove poorly last week and potted poorly last week. So the two things that we've been causing problems breath philip at heritage going again. Yeah yeah this is amazing. In that long ago. We're talking about us in johnson taken over the spawned just complete elimination from dustin johnson. In the last few months is just disappear. Justin thomas hit the ball so well lost weight. Putted poorly that's a perennial problem with him is not yet. It doesn't think he can get pots a working well enough to consistently win. As much as the rest of his is talent suggests he should a thing. You think roy is becoming really for straight informed but yeah if you pass off decent the air he martha traits that you have to consider strongly this week but is whether you're prepared to play eleven to one. Oh okay we'll we'll come up before we do look at it. They've just quickly ones pick up on weymouth. Hedrick of bob is because i was watching the one show the other way. Can they do this thing where they kind of lord unsung heroes during the covid crisis and there was a date that they send ramiez to go into this ball because it was all lined up on the barber.

A decade gulf courses discovery boring night cost to decky mezziane gulf coaster decade. That's it so it's the same venues. Last week's tournament is the third leg of the canarian and swings. And let's get a taste. The kind of filter is the market two weeks ago. Garrick higau one. He's twelve one last week. Dane permits to eighteen one. Justin harding's twenty two one on twenty-five cancer. Twenty five submerge twenty-five crooked twenty five twenty s. I'm so bored reading nine hundred us saying this film twice in the last two weeks already wanted to watch again. Only few can give me a decent win a staff will. I can consensus that. I think the european tour consent They've tried to jazz it. Up by reducing the yardage of from six thousand eight hundred fifty seventy dollars to six thousand eight hundred sixteen. So that's really excited you. So they've not few yards and increase the parts of seventy two. This is all according to the europeans. Her website you have to take a pinch of salt on european a website over the years of at seventy pinches of salt from the europeans or websites. Pretty tight in about a decade of my life. You know they get you. Control your control. Websites underlaw Late it does seem that they can change the park from seventy one seventy two and then knock a bit of yardage of Because the the eighth hole played a powerful last week par this week.

"Hey gang it is me your host. Sean zach joined by dylan to chair and if you follow us in any capacity you might have watched our show last year. It was called the drop zone. It was a twenty minute weekly show it centered around interview but it also dived into what i think was important dialogue on the most important topics in the game name some things a little bit frivolous like jena sims i._m._d._b. Page it is a doozy. You need to go check that out anyway. We are turning the gulf dot com podcast into the drop zone podcast. We are back. We are taking you along with us. We'll keep the mood light will bring in interesting and important discussions to your podcast feed every single a week this week. We're going to wrap up the p._g._a. Tour season and we'll have an interview with n._b._c. and golf channel host steve sands but for now this is the drop zone first things first as a podcast of the people of the gophers. We want to discuss the places we go and the things we do in this game so dylan. Tell the people what we did on saturday. Can i say i'm fired up. Drop zone where here wearing my. I wore my ugliest shirt my entire wardrobe for the occasion today just like when phil wears all black when he needs an aggressive sunday wore my weirdest shirt for the weirdest takes the drop zone and you're being weird already <hes> <hes>. Where do we played golf together. We get to play golf every now and then but it'd been awhile we get teed up at stan witch these sandwich club we took the metro north of in the city joined a couple of our what do they call themselves. Rev side associates revenue side joe suma and brendan molar and put a a nice four-ball up. They're beautiful sunny august afternoon from the tips. No big deal seventy four hundred yards. This course is just a constant constant test every single shot. I mean plan from the tips. That's pretty far but every single shot is like this constant test from tee to green with the fairway win rough inbetween twenty nine holes. We're chasing the sunset in the evening. That's what you want sunset gulf. You're just hitting the ball. You can't even see it anymore. <hes> you inspired me though you shot seventy two from tests seventy two from the tips you know this guy you might you might have heard of. You've couple years ago played. Their sergio. Garcia played from the tips shot seventy six. Wow you're you're inspiring me. That's for sure my egos inflating already like two minutes into this podcast <hes> but saturday sean playing golf saturday allowed us to get back sunday in time to take in the fedex cup finale finale rory mcilroy took down the tour championship by four shots over zander's softly staredown brooks kept getting the final group got some revenge. What a year in rory. What a year what what do we make of this year rory mcilroy well. Let's let's go through the the highlights at first so he begins twenty nineteen.

He's not going to play a lot of euro tour events paul mcginley as like deriding him for this people are all upset upset at roy mcelroy for trying to play quote where you play for more money and more ranking points seems obvious but this is what happens when your european gulf gulf star starts this season t forty five t four then he says i'm not going to play the irish open which is really sad for all of his his fans in ireland and northern ireland again vialed for this online on twitter. Everyone's upset with rory then he finishes second in mexico then t six then then he goes on wins the players championship. He's never really contended there before. This felt like a seminal victory in rory's year goes to the matchplay loses to tiger bigger snubs the media that day people are all upset rory. You couldn't beat oilman tiger. You couldn't talk to the media about it but he heads to augusta as one of the favorites favorite's goes out and shoot seventy three in the first round is down by eight strokes sorry rory but you're not going to round up the grand slam terms thirty in may not eight t eight sixty four sixty one up in canada to win by seven shots so the automatic favourite coming to pebble. He's going to win the us open. We're gonna get the fifth major. He's five shots back going into sunday makes double bogey on the second hole goodbye to another major opportunity then favourite to win a month later at royal portrush all the hype all the pressure he hit his first shot out of balance left on the first hole makes an eight rallies. He's on friday has a chip to make the cut for the sixty four. Mrs gives this hartfield interview. He's almost crying on camera there with steve sands but he misses the cut a week later. This is the year of rory he goes up against brooks. Kepco on sunday in memphis gets absolutely waxed brooks. Wchs wins by six rory can't do it in an final round pairings with anybody of any kind of substance finally when we kind of stop expecting heading good things from rory he shows up. He drives like a madman. This week wins by four eastlake winds fifteen million dollars. We constantly constantly only get caught up in the minutia the details of right now it's happening right now with rory but there is a greater picture and that is that he had a phenomenal phenomenal year he did. I mean wow that was a roller coaster ride. Walk me through <hes>. I think the most perfect encapsulation at least for me in person was being over over at royal portrush and wandering over to that i he you know because the crowds were going crazy on thursday when rory headed to hit it that opening tee shot and i've never heard such a contrast of at impact the crowd going nuts and then it was like you let the air out of the balloon as this ball just sales left and sales left in all of a sudden you have these thousands and thousands of people go deadly silent and set awkward moment rory's going over and fumbling getting a provisional ball out of his golf bag and it was so dark said th the contrast between that and then such an emotional day the next wchs day playing maybe his best golf the entire year you know maybe besides the the rb c. or something but in that charge for for the cut line playing spectacular golf and falling just short felt like the theme of his year <hes> until yesterday and all things considered yes-or-no take on its own kind of intricate goofy thing the tour championship isn't exactly the players championship these are different things they'll be treated as one victory sorry in the career wins column but you're fired up about that part <hes> it's become kind of cliche to praise rory for being so open with the media and so open with his fans ends but i'm gonna do it again. He constantly shows us more than anybody else like he clues us in. We seem to actually know who he is. What takes about he tells us. He admits to us that he's doing meditation then he's working with the sports psychologists in that he doesn't want to play play a full european tour schedule because he wants to really focus on winning a major. That's all we really want is that fifth major from the guy and so he tries focusing on it and then he gets vilified. I'd like he's. He's been frustrated. He's been heartbroken. He's comeback in really really focused just trying to win golf tournaments which is all we really want. The guy doesn't really care about the fifteen million dollars. He just won his wants to do. It adds his legacy do it with the people he loves. He really like is is the definition of using your platform to show who you are and we really really don't see that for like ninety percent of the p._g._a. Tour it's funny. You mentioned this weekend. He's reading this book about you. Know staying dang device free basically being the moment being present <hes> and i thought his most interesting answer in his post press conference was about brooks kepco actually because he said ed let me read you a little rory. He said i think one of the biggest things i sometimes try to treat sundays as thursday or friday and they're not said i go into them with that that same mindset and maybe it's a little too relaxed so he said when he ran into brooks's sixty five in memphis. He said that changed him a little bit so he said look if i want to become the most dominant player in the world again. I need to be more like that i need to i guess that's the ultimate compliment can give brooks is today. I wanted to be a little bit more like him. <hes> that's pretty revealing another civil yeah no one. No one else says things like that. You think dustin johnson would say <hes>. I think i need to be more. Mike brooks. That's that's all he would say. He wouldn't go in depth to what that actually means. Yes guys don't say that in brooks will say about playing with rory. He'll say oh look. He's a joy to watch. He's fantastic whatever but but it feels more like that athlete you know mutual respect cliche not like i needed to really genuinely really needed to steal part of his game to overcome some. There's some jealousy listen. There's like minute jealousy from rory and can you blame him. I mean brooks has matched his career major total in the past three years. I think that there we've answered on tour confidential. Those are the two elite players in the game to brooks yeon rory and there is a little gap but there's a gap between justin thomas in those guys in dustin johnson those same justin rose so all the praise from me for rory and the urine rory absolute roller coaster and i think it all reminds us that sometimes we we we lose track of the forest when we're staring at the trees especially auroras world in rory's world the tour championship. It was the talk of the town on the p._g._a. Tour for actually most of the year especially the last couple of weeks everyone's focused on this goofy format and perhaps goofy isn't the right word but it's just tricky. It's a little bit different. You can essentially not play as good as someone else but still beat them and take more money than them. Money was the conversation justin. Thomas starts at ten under finishes at thirteen under patrick. Kelly started at eight under finished at one over rory. One by four paul casey nudged a five foot or closer to the whole for a multi-million dollar tap-in. Are we pleased. Were we happy with the result out. Yes i say that with some reservations because they're still is this weirdness. You have talked about it. Plenty even rory talked about it immediately after winning. He was keeping track of his own shadow leaderboard you know he said he wanted the lowest seventy two hole score his man he couldn't he iraq the the math. He said he thought he needed to make birdie on eighteen. He actually had the lowest seventy two seventy two hole score by three shots over the course of the week but there was some weirdness however look at the showdown at got us on sunday goddess rory. It got us brooks zander schlafly justin thomas you know for the hottest players. There's on tour in contention on sunday. That's better in my mind than anything else. We've seen from the tour championship since it started better than last year format wise better than last year last year you had weird justin rose like fists pumping two putts on eighteen to lose the tournament but win the fedex ex-cop. This was better than more satisfying than that well. I want a perhaps rhetorical question for you is how can we improve it because this is our one chance to really have this discussion because we will have another full season starting up in just a couple of weeks. I like the idea that there's a lot of money involved. I think that that's a win like the fedex bonus. Onus is worth sixty million dollars seventy million seventy seventy million. I think you could see guys getting a little bit uncomfortable out there. Yes yeah it's hard to draw a a direct line obviously because are missing fairways all over mrs. They're playing for more money than they ever have before. That's the absolute truth so that's going to get someone someone uncomfortable but i would like to present michael bamberger. 's playoff thesis. He calls it. The fedex series this. Everyone plays throughout the whole year for the top one hundred and twenty five spots that gets you into the playoffs which sounds pretty familiar right. You're still applying for the same pool tens of millions of dollars each event as is already. The case has its own purse so if you play well in those events your money from that the worst eight scores after each round cut people from each round. We're talking cumulative scoring so if you shoot seventy six in the first round of the first playoff event you're probably going home if you shoot sixty seven. You've done a lot to get yourself moving forward so the worst eight scores plus ties get cut after every round so basically you lose ten people per round so after the first round you got one hundred fifteen left after the second round hundred five left. Basically you got eighty five players going to chicago for the b._m._w. And basically have forty five players going to atlanta for the tour championship after which we only eliminate four people around but we're talking cumulative scoring this is how it would have played out all the way through cumulus all the way through okay justin thomas would have won with eight hundred and fourteen strokes money across the three playoff events. Tony fee now would have finished second only. That's that's perfect spot for tony eight hundred and sixteen strokes. You'd lost j._t. By too but the guy played really really solid gulf in new york in chicago august and in atlanta he deserves to be handsomely rewarded for it more so than he actually did well. What did we see one. Tony phoenix show yesterday exactly contrast time time for third adam scott roy macro eight hundred eighteenth strokes losing to j t four justice. Thomas played solid this past week so much better than rory sorry a week ago and they kind of played the same in new york. If we're going to treat this as a playoffs the entire thing as an event it should all count the same. I don't want shots in chicago theoretically worth fractions more than shots in atlanta because they helped build you a lead in atlanta lanta. That's what i want to avoid. I'm not saying i hate it but here's the thing in the n._b._a. You reset after every round right. You got a new series series new competition new opponent in m._l._b. You do the same in the n._f._l. The points reset after every game so inherently. I don't have an issue with the the points resetting as one of every around him sports while yet. I'm tennis the same thing would apply. We're not talking cumulative games and sets you know as you go through wimbledon. <hes> and i think you run the risk of someone running away with this thing but man. I didn't hear you say the name. Brooks kept go which is kind of interesting perks caffeine would have made eight hundred and thirty strokes suit of lost thomas by sixteen strokes which is what happened in the playoffs. <hes> this is what happened. During the playoffs off cities with doesn't strike me as quite as compelling your twelve round golf tournament all of a sudden this is like the old school but double it that is so much stroke play golf with somewhat stroke play golf and horse so much money for so much money it would be a daunting career defining thing for tony fee now to play twelve rounds outlast the greatest players in the world twenty. Fina has one career win. Anyways an it was a secondary of that open shoutout martin trainer also also one career win tony now holding off the best players in the world for twelve weeks is as good as a second win. Perhaps a third win in my eyes. That would have been incredible so i think you're talking about. You're elevating the fedex cup. Bamberger also wants to change the names of the events to fedex fedex tune but x. three yeah. I'm also down for because fedex paid all this money well yeah. It's also just perfect bamberger kind of subversion either way we can agree that that would be better than <hes> <hes> say two thousand eight when v._j. Singh won the fedex cup with one hundred twenty five thousand one hundred and one points one by five hundred and fifty one point margin so oh. This sounds like better than that. Where you're talking about is more of a marathon is a tour championship. Yeah think about it. What i was thinking is kind of the other end of the spectrum. Let's get did a little bit weird or the top eight. Guys go to some sort of match play format. We get head to head. You say it's a little too weird. I say maybe not weird enough <hes> so no. I don't think we're there quite yet but i hope that they just keep tinkering a little bit. We've made progress moving on moving on sean. I wanted to get you involved in a little game. I want to do a little overrated underrated properly rated with you. I just want to ask you if something is overrated underrated or properly rated rory mcelroy's player of the year campaign. It's properly rated. I think we all know it's not gonna happen. This happens every couple of years when someone wins a bunch a bunch of events but doesn't win. A major rory's season is properly rated because we all now. It's bricks kept. His title loose is tony fee. Now overrated underrated properly properly rated. Wow that's a great question. I've got tony female overrated while it's not that he doesn't have game. He's got a ton of games. It's actually because he has game but the guy as we just covered has only one the puerto rico open. He gave the sort of sad interview yesterday <hes> uh he just wanted to win this year and he couldn't get it but he made a ton of money. Get on your tony transfusions at the turn. I think you had your the first one this weekend. They are very underrated. They taste so good anything. That's a little fruity to just wipe away the hard stinging vodka make me a little bit looser made me start feeling like you know. The end is in sight. These double bogeys don't really matter how about harry diamond harry diamond. I'm at home my cat underrated i would say how often do we actually talk about harry diamond. The only time we talked about harry diamond in a significant way was dumping dumping on rory for picking his buddy to be on the bag and now here he is you know would my answer been different yesterday when it looked like rory was closer to a guy that struggled at the close on sunday maybe but today it's not yesterday anymore. Harry diamond shout out to our guy. How about shawn's ox golf game overrated underrated properly rated so underrated. It's crazy. I'm the most dangerous eleven handicapped in the world because i start every match when i'm getting strokes people play the first five holes in like one over so i've already popped a couple of times already made a couple of birdies and people people are like you're such a sand baker quickly. Take a long iron and send it to the right. Trees is like savvy reseves yourself but you take them with you. Yes is there already still rattled. I'm so close to being a seven handicap and i'm far from being fifteen anti cap some underrated as an eleven is it overrated underrated properly rated to make a hole in one o magnum shot up myself the new hole in one man <hes>. I think it's it's overrated if i'm being candid. It's overrated. Zander softly just made his first career hole in one of his life period did this weekend but at the end of the day you just hit a ball and win in the whole it this is not a have you ever hold out from the fairway. I have and that's just as much of a rush as doing it from teebox. It's a very very cool thing. It's just a one you get to write a one on the scorecard. It's just that it's gotten so built up to the point where we treat it as this. You know kind of career accomplishment like it's it's like winning a tournament or something but it's it's not at all that it's just a combination of a good shot in a bunch of luck and then you're supposed to buy a bunch of beer which you know sounds fun. <hes> overrated pitting hole in one finally for you. I have a brooks kepco. Where are we at. The end of. This season is products. Kapka properly rated finally yeah properly rated yeah because he he's he's. He's probably not going to win. As many times as roy mcelroy like full stop across the board. He's not going to to go there and steal the travelers championship which means he'll probably win it next next year. He just has begged these majors. He's a phenomenal competitor. He's probably going to remain from that couple years top five player in the world which is what he is. Does he have the staying power at number number one. Maybe which means that's kind of perfect worries at is jay monahan overrated underrated properly rated. Wow jay monahan overrated yup. What is jay monahan done for the p._g._a. Tour he's going to be the guy that that finalizes the t._v. Rights but he also needs to be the guy that finalizes sound pace of play and he has balked at all kinds of ideas that make the players have to think about things so at this point for me. This sounds like enter you. You've taken over this this take but i have no problem with it. The overrated stamp. He's going to have it all right enough of that. Ah first time segment we need to talk to steve sands longtime n._b._c. and gulf channel host and interviewer report on the grounds. He was a part of probably the best this interview last year play the best post interview this year the guys in the right spot of the right time he is and we're coming off the tour championship. This was his super bowl. You know for a while. This is steve sands with the whiteboard. We got into that. He got into his interviews rory with tiger all kinds of background stuff. I want to know where that whiteboard is. I that's like some type of golf memorabilia. You'll never see all right now have about his whiteboard though here's steve sands longtime host with evie sports and golf channel ever since the turn of the century really steve. Thanks for joining us. Oh my awful deductions century. Oh i'm old man. No it means you're tenured your tenure. You had a long long career and there's been no reason to get rid of you. You are you're sandy in the gulf. World needs that you guys are getting good. It's a it's a little early here on monday morning though radio talk golf because we had a big day yesterday rory mcilroy wins the tour championship happy and chip. How was it for you down there at east lake. That was good. It was <hes> was really good. You know what coming off a last year. I think that everybody he was like okay. It was an epic sunday with tiger winning for the time in his career. How in the world is anybody gonna match up to that so for all all the guys who were there for the high level of play <hes> rory mcilroy brooks captain zanesha flea justin thomas getting a worthy champion karori it was <hes>. I thought it was terrific. The new system <hes> worked out well. They've got a great champion in rory and now he's the only other guy that other than tiger who has to you skipped titles so it was a terrific dinner yeah. Everyone is going to talk about this week. They're going to talk about the new format how it's a little bit different some color goofy some color. Whatever whatever there are certain parts they like in other parts don't like but you are for longtime. You're the man with the whiteboard your man in front of the numbers adding up fedex cup points in the moment moment <hes> faster than anyone could do with t._v. Graphics so we needed your opinion on a subject what <hes> how is this week different better or worse for you in a slightly a different role the way it was different. <hes> it wasn't nearly as hectic <hes> i'm used to hearing everybody in my ear on governor ford and ten something out or whatever it is <hes> zuber's cool it was it was fun. It was certainly different. I missed it missed. The white borders collected well. It was a collective effort by a bunch of people <hes> you know i i realized that you're the guy who was up there and everybody sees your face your voice but you know between guys at the tour like jon on friedman and <hes> our guys in the truck louis and tom and <hes> sammy goldberg and all these different people who were so talented <hes> <hes> in putting together all of those kinds of things <hes> we missed. We missed doing it. <hes> it was fun to explain it. We understand that it was confusing thing and we try to make it as simple as possible for the audience to be able to sit and watch the golf and enjoy and then figure out who's gonna win. It is trying to win and what can happen in what scenarios areas here there <hes> so yeah. I'd be lying. If i told you i didn't miss doing it. It was fun and doing it but the system's better <hes> it's it's definitely definitely less confusing for people <hes> and that's the ultimate goal <hes> and it worked out great so yeah it was it was <hes> it was strange tonight. I watch took the clubhouse all those years. We had a little set for the fedex cup standings inside the clubhouse. I walked in there. <hes> when i got the town on wednesday kind of put my hand over my heart at a moment of silence and then walked out 'cause steve so tiger at the northern trust said who's worried about your your brand going forward. He was worried about your job with no whiteboard this year. Did you get a bunch of feedback from players from guys on site about the new format and about your role well. I don't think they care about my role. I think they cut a joke to me a little bit of the guys asking me. What are you gonna do next week man. What are you gonna do this this week. Your man what's going to happen that they were kinda half kidding half not asking for still had a job <hes> very nice <hes> funny about about it <hes> i was not watching the day at northern trust and worrying tiger. I got the podium when they were doing their news. Conferences <hes> <hes> but you know it's just cool to kind of reach out and kind of have supplied with it and <hes> you know when you're part of something like that and i guess the first time it gets taken away. <hes> people were gonna save you know nice things and and it's it's very cool that people did that but the it is certainly not about me. It's not about us we are. I've said this before the people we are people who are on t._v. People who you are and that's great and everybody's always said nice like up to you no one ever since you suck you always see the greatest bottle and all that kind of stuff but it's <hes> it's about the athletes it's about the golfers. It's about the tour <hes> it's about the gulf the competition you know we're just cloudiness circus and <hes>. I know that we're <music> very recognizable. I understand that but i'm not trying to be mr humble. I'm just telling the truth. It's it's about them not us <hes> and in this particular case because the fedex fedex cup was system delay it was and i was the guy who was the person on the network explaining hanging on golf channel and on n._b._c. over the weekend. I i understand all the attention <hes> last week in the last couple of eastern the fedex cup blouse but i am <hes> i'm not really happy that the competition was the most important thing and and they've got a great winter and congratulations to rory definitely now. Did you ever make a mistake with that whiteboard car. You mistake free. I mrs campbell at four three eight minutes frazier of back in sixth grade or that'd be amazed at the lack of errors that we made <hes> over the years. We never once on live t._v. <hes> <hes> during our shows did we ever make mathematical error <hes> as far as the reports not quite sure. I'm gonna happen based on my scholastic record lifespan college <hes> in fact. I was telling someone the other day. My mother passed away june <hes>. She was a schoolteacher pitcher <hes> for a long time. She's a high school teacher and the very first time <hes> we came on the air on n._b._c. over the weekend. Just think of golf said on thursday the first time we came on the air and david one of those fedex cup points update. Excuse me <hes> my my mother didn't text or call which i thought was kinda surprising. She was all jacked up about it and then the second time we did later. She didn't call then the third time we did it right. Afterwards i get a text for my mom and she's like i was too nervous watching to text you or call you after the first couple but now that i've settled down and have calmed down thank you <hes> my favorite beverage and you've also done it for a few types. I can honestly tell you that if you would have you've done as much homework back in highschool as you did going into this. You could have been somebody so mother. That's fun <hes> <hes> everybody has fun with it and it was it was cool. It was <hes> it was fun and doing fun to be a part of it <hes> but you know all things all things must count going last year had the tiger return and you were there for probably the best interview yet of twenty eighteen season reason to talk to tiger immediately after his tour championship win do you do you remember that scene as probably the greatest moment of your career or what else would compare that was <hes>. That was some kind of seen <hes> again. You know what's weird about how you guys feel about this when you're doing your thing but so i don't know. I don't know i can't speak anybody else. When i'm doing my job <hes> i don't think about the millions of people who are watching and that i i just think about the job or doing at the time <hes> the team were on and trying to produce and broadcast the best we can <music> <hes> for the audience who's watching <hes> just kind of you know checking out the best players in the world. I don't think about it at the time but i will say this this last year. When tiger won that crazy scene were all the people are coming down eighteen at least like we run run out like we always do on the eighteenth grade walkout and do the interview and you know it's it's tigers first win in five years tigers eightieth career with <hes>. There's a lot of things their comeback the whole thing. I get done with the interview. The place is going but nats nats and can't hear a thing in your ear. Your head said it's crazy and so you know it's a big deal but in atlanta's one of those weeks where you kind of get out of there and you get right to the airport and fly home. This is a hub airport. Get home on a sunday night. Which in our businesses kind of a big thing have to be able to do that because he spent so much time away so i get to the airport and people are staring the most. It's bizarre thing is so weird. At the time you're not thinking about how big it is and all that kind of stuff but then and afterwards you realize it's an n._f._l. Sunday and tiger woods just one of the first time in five years and we got a massive massive massive television rating. It was an enormous day in sports because it was tiger no offense anybody else tigers the only one who can do so when i got to the airport checked in security getting on the train and atlanta going to the gate sitting at the gate waiting to get on the plane i mean everyone is coming up and saying something and then that's when it kinda hits you that well. That's a big deal. I mean it's a it was it was a big deal. It was a lot of fun <hes> thankfully. The interview went well. He was more emotional. I think during that interview than i've ever ever seen him in any interview we've ever done together and we've done hundreds and hundreds of them <hes> so i was happy for him that he won knowing what he's gone gone to get to that point. It was very cool but yeah it was <hes> i was certainly one of the bigger spots <hes> personally i've ever been into career and steve. We know that you have definitely a good relationship with tiger like you said from hundreds of interviews over the years. How did that start art because you know we know with tiger. He's a pretty protective guy. It takes a little while to for him to get comfortable around you out. Imagine what was that process like yeah. You know it's it's interesting people all the time. <hes> look the relationship that person on t._v. Sports caster has is with an athlete is really based on one thing it's trust and i think that the athlete in this case tiger <hes> <hes> greatest player of his generation of very protective guy <hes> if he doesn't believe in the person who he's dealing with then then it's never going to get any farther than just something that's very superficial and i remember years ago <hes> playing winging charlotte. He always used to play first ti- time pro-am on a wednesday and i was in charlotte. I don't know two thousand three four five somewhere back then and he was in that crazy six thirty a._m. Time whatever that was there was nobody there and i thought you know what i think. It's really important to get out there. You know it's they're working. We should be working. You know they're the athletes. They're the show so so get after it so i get out there on the first team. We're walking. He kind of looks over here. What are you doing here and i said you you know if you're working organ and then you continue that throughout the weeks the months here's <hes> obviously in his heyday the day he was playing great almost on the leader board after every round not just every week and you're interviewing interviewing every day because he's always on a leader board and he's tiger woods and you know you build that relationship. You walk around with them. You talk about things things off camera that you know you would never obviously mentioned on t._v. But just you know family stuff and kids and life and sports and you know this stupid stuff and you you allow him <hes> to kind of get to know you and then you trying to see goes and does that <hes> trust allow you to then ask the tough questions to tiger when the situation calls for it. I mean obviously it's golf. They're going to be positive questions far more than the negative but does that trust building element allow for that when you need to. I think you could say that about any athlete. <hes> i am a believer that i don't know how you feel about this but i am a believer that we ask questions of athletes. We wanna get to know athletes. We want <hes> to get closer to athletes as fans and the way to do that is to get to know them through through a lens or through a website or if it were newspaper radio whatever the media is if you ask athletes questions let them answer. Let's hear it. Let's go to bed. You know if you don't like the answer. You don't like their opinion. Don't ask the question <hes> and i think that when an athlete trust you in this case case tigers are asking about i think for sure you have the ability to ask him questions. <hes> that or a little bit deeper than you would if the athlete doesn't trust because i think the athlete who trust the person who's asking questions is way more willing to answer them in an honest fashion so yeah. There's no question that if you take the time to get to know the athletes <hes> whether it's tiger rory anybody else they will be better with you on camera <hes> off camera whatever it is <hes> i think the the the information you're going to get from them. The honesty you're going to get through them is going to be greatly enhanced if the athlete trust the person asking the question. There's there's no debate on that. One of the one of the aspects of your our relationship with tiger is how he refers to you. It's sandy. Everybody knows sandy. I wanna know is sandy spell at the y. Or an i e <hes> you'd have to have him. <hes> my guess is it's an i. <hes> is my guest. The funny thing about that is people now. How in the last couple of years anywhere i am. It's sandy sandy people yelling fans e that guy basically live. They say to my wife mrs sansui eh say to my kid little sandy it. It's it's it's all based on and again. It's all based on one thing. Tiger tiger rules the sports world not just the gulf world so when he says something it catches on for that to catch on that has nothing often do with me. That's him and it's just a crazy crazy thing that he has the ability to kinda change the way people speak look. I'm fifty years old. When i played high school basketball. We wore shorts like it was underwear. You know michael jordan came along and now my kids have played high school basketball or wear shorts down to their knees shaved head came in to play when in jordan shaved his head and it became such a cool look. Well tiger is like an only certain athletes. You're like that. I'm not saying everybody who's dressing tiger talking tiger it but if someone else called me that nickname it wouldn't nearly catch on like it does with him and i'm telling you fellas everywhere i go people. People are yelling at me. It makes me laugh. I think it's i think it's dead. Do you know when he first called you that like. Did you react in any way dog. People people who call me that forever he <hes> he started calling me that years ago <hes> but you gotta remember you know like he he kind of went in a way. They're you know with his injuries and all the things that have happened to him. He really didn't play a lot from twenty thirteen twenty seventeen <hes> after he had that great year twenty thirteen he didn't really play a ton so in this comeback <hes> when he started calling me me that after every interview <hes> i think that's what it caught on but you know he's been i mean everybody calls people whatever their name removed by a y. Or a year mikey or stevie or you know johnny that kind of stuff. I do it all the time people all the time it just it or not. Famous tiger was so when taika something like that. It tends to catch up yeah well one. One other thing that you used to have was a washington d. d._c. Tour event and your guy and i look around the tour schedule and you kind of you see events. I go to new york and boston and l. a. Every year and and washington d._c. Has been pulled out of the tour rota so to say does that make you does that. Make you feel pretty sad. I imagine you kind of enjoyed those times where you could get close to home. It's tragic to me. I drives me crazy <hes> as a as a washingtonian that we have of the n._f._l. The n._b._a. n._h._l. Major league baseball we have a tennis event and we don't have a p._g._a. Tour event in the nation's capital. I think that's a joke <hes>. There's there's certainly a great golf courses there. <hes> i understand sponsors and economics dictate how things work but for the p._g._a. Tour for the game aim at the highest level to not be in the nation's capital to me is in the area and not in the city right in the nation's capital area is just awful to me and i think that it's a void on the schedule <hes> it's avoid on the calendar. It's void a major market. <hes> and i'm biased. I readily do we admit that but i i just think that being in d._c. Is safe on washington's a major city and they have all the sports except golf off and i think that the p._g._a. Tour belongs in the nation's capital and i think that the tournament is always been supported well in the nation's capital on and they certainly have to venues that do it so it bummed me out when that happened. I understand why it happened. <hes> and i understand how it all works but let's try to figure it out and get golf at the highest level of play in what i consider the greatest city in the world but by it but i'm biased by you couldn't you couldn't tell steve sean mentioned before you got the probably best interview of twenty eighteen with tiger at the tour championship but we also think you might have gotten the best interview of twenty nineteen with rory at portrush you know he missed the cut but his charged for the cut line. It was electric mean that whole day was pretty special in portrush. What what do you remember from that and does that stick out to. You like it does to us. Remember the most about that day was here is one one of the top two or three players <hes> in the world <hes> plane a tournament that he pretty much. No longer has a chance chance to win. Yet is grinding like you can't believe to make the cut now. If you make the cut you do have a chance to win over the weekend obviously but he wasn't playing great <hes> and he obviously had a very tough start on thursday the crowd over there the reason the open is my favorite favored than the year is because of the atmosphere the crowd over there just different. It's sounds different. It feels different. It looks different. <hes> <hes> everything about it and those folks love roy maccarone they love darren clarke and they loved graeme mcdowell but man were they rooting for rory mcilroy to make that cut that place was going crazy and rory was coming down the stretch so emotional just trying to make it to the weekend. This is one of four major championships. He's won a claire jug. He's got all the money in the world and he's trying to make a cut for the country because the country was on his back and that probably was the reason he got up such a bad start on thursday so to me the interview with him afterwards him being so emotional <hes>. I've been doing this twenty nine years. I've never cried. I'm a crier. I cried everything. <hes> and i've never cried on live t._v. And rory got me and i almost was gonna gonna cry on national television. I don't care to do it or not do it. I just saying i've never done it and he was so emotional <hes> so genuine january so true to himself <hes> just so rory mcilroy and <hes> it's. It's one of the reasons that i truly love the guy <hes> and i just think he's a fabulous person along with being a fabulous golfer. Have you talked to rory about that interview since then. Did you guys ever. We'll have a conversation about it afterwards yeah we did. We talked a little bit about it. <hes> you know it's it's <hes> yeah. It's conversation station. We keep a amongst ourselves. It's just a you know he's. He's just a wonderful kid. He really is as parents are great. Jerry rose his wife. Eric is great. <hes> he has incredible perspective on not only career but life <hes> it's a rare athlete who has that type of balance and <hes> it was a it was a tough day for him <hes> but he also understands that sports you know sports is up and down man. It's <hes> he certainly certainly felt the ups and downs over the years. Everybody has <hes> fans athletes. Whoever's involved <hes> but yeah. We talked about it. It was <hes> that was a tough day. Man i was it was a it was an emotional tough day. It was emotionally draining day <hes> for him and knowing him the way i know i felt terrible for man he he wanted it so badly. That much was was definitely imported through the t._v. Screen now before we let you go a couple lighthearted topics along career covering gulf but recently you've been on n._b._c.'s winter olympics coverage and speed skating has been in your sport because i don't know why please tell the people who have no idea is that a difficult job and easy job compared to gulf. How the hell it's speed skating. This kid is great man. If you need to know anything about your katharina lucretia you're talking right got <hes> it's it's <hes> it's it's a crazy cool sport. <hes> you wouldn't wanna watch it every week <hes> but doing it every four years amazing <hes> the olympics is amazing amazing. It's a <hes> you know to once in a lifetime opportunity for the great majority of olympia to get to that point <hes> you know we put it on as a television show so you know all about the grape stars <hes> who have been in the olympics multiple times but the great majority of olympians are there once and it's there like lifelong goal. Let's shipment to reach that that point of that moment <hes> speedskating's amazing the energies great. It's always a sold out crowd. Indoors really allowed <hes> the speed and athleticism in speed skating is staggering in person when you're there it is incredible. How athletic <hes> the men and women are who take part in speed skating and it's a lot of fun man. It's <hes> it's really cool to be like. I did football basketball baseball hockey tennis. I've done all the sports <hes> been very lucky over my career <hes> to be a part of the olympics i- n._b._c.'s is a dream come true. It's an amazing team of people on and off the air. Put that type of production together and doing different sport is always great. <hes> <hes> pushes you. You got a lot of homework. <hes> you gotta make sure you understand names and the rules of the game and you're not around it. It's nice not nearly <hes> as comfortable as you are going to a golf tournament. You know after doing all these years but it's it's you know someone wants told me that it's impossible all to grow unless you stretch yourself so take yourself out of your comfort zone. Go do a different sport like that and you kinda find find out a little bit about yourself and <hes> it's a lot of fun being around the men and women <hes> the u._s. speed skating and all of the world <hes> when we go to the olympics. It's it's an honor to be a part of it. It's a lot of fun so you'll be headed to japan them. I will be going to tokyo flying i think i think i'm doing golf. I'd be lying if i told you that i would. I love to do a different sport <hes> but because we golf and obviously it's better to do the sport you cover as far as the network is concerned because you're putting on a show so <hes> and you want the audience to familiar and comfortable with what they're seeing watching <hes> and listening to but <hes> pretty sure. I'm going to be in tokyo and it'd be a lot a lot of fun. Olympics is an amazing amazing time all right well then before you leave. You could make a ploy to your bosses right now. What's far. Would you cover in japan. I'd love to do swimming man. I just the ended. I i've gone to a couple of we're in sixteen after golf go to different events different things and boxing and badminton volleyball and water polo and track and field and all these different things. Let me tell you man. I went the night that la- decky he and phelps each one goal and the place was coming unglued. It was like being cameron indoor fog allen there. Are you know being a night game at l._s._u. On a saturday it was so loud and so the energy was so i <hes> i think a lot of fun wanted to be a part of the swimming in summer games but i <hes> coming to fall a little bit short of that goal. That's all right dog. I'm happy to be a part of anything. They want want whatever they choose. You made you made a good run out. We'll see if we can talk to the n._b._c. Folks and get you close to thanks steve. Thanks for calling in and we'll see a see out. They're on tour sometime big. Thanks steve sands for joining us. Hopefully the guy gets a little bit of a break before he has run out there on tour again dylan before we go. He'd like to say something. I would like to say something because as great as the tour championship the fedex cup payout was this weekend the biggest story in sports was about andrew luck retiring at age twenty nine and the guys is getting paid twenty five million dollars essentially to do nothing in by the indianapolis colts thing about here's rory mcilroy thirty years old having a huge mega payday making a similar amount of money. Here's was andrew luck and suddenly all these tributes pouring in about you know luxe career and i feel like we really got a chance to step back and appreciate the guy for what he's done. Let's thing about golf in the way we just grind in and out all season long. We get a ton of rory mcilroy over the course of the season and he's not going anywhere for a long time. You don't see guys just walk away from the game of golf the way you do. You don't really even see much of an off season in the golf world so i do think we should you know take these moments like right now. We're coming into our what two three week off season to say all right. We we had a good run. We should appreciate the greatness of rory of kept gaza while we're here you know money or not even though royal be around for a while we we should take this chance. We're in it right now. Rory is a great player right now in <hes> we'll miss it when it's gone yeah anytime that you end up comparing things like like team sports to golf a lot of times. There are things that we lack we really want the kind of team camaraderie or like the finality of a win or a loss not justice listed t four or t five gulf actually really hits on keeping people involved forever. I mean if roy macro wants to play the champion's tour which is entitled to do and make a lot more money as a senior. We're seeing for the next four decades. That's the bottom line and that's a good thing fred. Couples was in contention in his hometown event and yesterday in seattle so you know this is a game for a lifetime. It is a question with all this fedex cup money. If we'll see that change you know brooks kept good talks talks about moving to an island never hearing from again so we'll see if there will be a little bit more than just anthony kim in in terms of stars disappearing on the tour but for now i do want everyone to <hes> savor this time away from the p._g._a. Tour because it'll be back before we know it will be just a matter of weeks. That's it for the drop zone today. Thanks to steve sands. Thanks on the chair. I'm your host sean sock.

Rory McIlroy at 30

"Uh-huh. Welcome to another episode of the Gulf dot com next. I'm Shawn saw. So ROY macaroni turned thirty years old Saturday. What exactly does that mean? The man is a four time. Major winner players champion a Ryder Cup stalwart during his twenties. Rory one more than forty five million dollars on the PGA tour, a number that Trump's everyone not named Tiger Woods ROY has lived in extremely public life ever since his Gulf made him good enough for all of us to watch that came really early when he made the cut at the two thousand seven British Open at just eighteen years old he'd win on the European tour in early two thousand nine confirming what everyone believed he was mega talented, and he was here to chase championships. But now more than a decade later when Rory walks around is a newly minted thirty rolled every discussion about his place in the game is always veiled by bit of what have you done for me lately? And in a sport that devotes it self to the counting of major victories, ROY. Hasn't done much for us lately. Despite winning four majors before the age of twenty six he hasn't won a major in more than four years almost five. And yet he's the most global star in this game, not named Tiger Woods. So ROY at thirty. He's an interesting case before teeing it up at the Wells Fargo championship last weekend where macro won his first career to event back in two thousand ten he was asked about what the number thirty means to him. You know, I played a practice Sharma Sam Saunders yesterday, and he's thirty one. But he's got two kids wanna tan and one five and like, I'm not quite at that stage yet, but this life it makes you grow up quickly. I don't feel it's it's funny. I don't I still feel like I'm one of the younger guys. But my mind, I'm not thirty either. It's a it's a weird. I don't know. I don't know what he really her. Why you know, it's sort of you know, I was here when I was twenty and winning a quill hollow. And that was sorta, but it doesn't. Doesn't feel like ten years ago. It's so we it's a I don't know if you couldn't tell Rory himself seems a bit confused on what turned thirty means as he reaches another phase of his career. It's worth looking back on what he's done in who's been since he arrived as a mob haired nineteen year old back in two thousand nine it was back then that macaroni played his first masters tournament in the rob to that masters. Our very own Michael Bamberger spent some time with Rory for Sports Illustrated feature profile Michael joins us now. Michael who was Rory McElroy at nineteen years old. Biggest impression ROY made me? When I when I met him when he was nineteen. It was his it was his first trip to the United States as a professional he'd been here before as a kid putting Amador golf, but but now he was embarking on his pro career. And and I met him at the titlis te testing center, and he was with his father and absolutely by far. The biggest impression he made was an unbelievably intelligent and worldly kid who had who travel the world you went to China with Allthough had flown overnight planes as a ten year old by himself. I think the United States the one point and stayed with families, and he was just not like any nineteen year old kid I'd ever and ever met before so number being keenly impressed by intelligence by his interest in things way beyond golf, and and just would a reasonable nice. Nice interesting complete person. He was at nineteen. It was actually amazing also vocabulary was extrordinary. I'm not remembering this number precisely. But at roughly sixteen year olds at stage sixteen scored roughly thirteen hundred on the SAT with no, you know, Stanley Caplan test, his use of language full sentences. I was very very impressed by why was there such hype around him? I was not deep in the Gulf game at the time. But I feel like there's always young nineteen year old. But what was different about him? I wouldn't be knowledgeable about golf to have picked it up myself. But others Mark former ineligible than I work. And the first thing I remember that regard was my friend in the former colleague Gary van sickle at at the open that Padre Barrington one at card new STI and Rory was Aminu playing that event and sickle who really knows a lot about golfing as the sun is very golfer. So just get ROY McElroy. He's like a young Lanny Watkins, he's the full package. He's got it. All you've got swing speed. He's got a walk. He's got everything. And then you could see even if he didn't really understand technically what he was doing. Anyone could tell you tremendous speed through the ball goes to see the he he walked with the competency looked like an athlete even though he was a little on on the side who cared. He had he had swagger, and I remember Geoff Ogilvy at the time telling me that just the way he carried himself was worth half or shoddy day. Of course, that's there's no way to make that there's no scientific analysis for sense like that. But I knew what he meant. We all knew what he means is that it was good in the down the stretch that little bit of swagger was gonna be was going to be helpful. So there are no such things. A can't miss prospect in golf, but there's close and he was close to that. Okay. So within your profile you seem to join him in multiple locations. Did you go with him from Carlsbad to Jupiter know, I didn't travel with them. I know I saw him in a bunch of different places that was probably the single greatest privilege one of the great privileges about being a reporter at Sports Illustrated. You have the time to see the subject and multiples in multiple settings and really get to know the the person in him in good times in bed, and then write him up accordingly. You know, so I'm. Let's see I think he played in a tournament Florida. I think he played at the route tournament and so there's Honda tournament. And so for sure because that's the week that he and his father were in a parking lot at the Palm Beach gardens mall, PJ little art and big Jack game. Check seven window side of them. And and and Jerry Roy's father, who's my Jags actually says hijack Jack leaves ROY later says you can't come you nNcholas and remember telling us about that later was like it would people call me Jack on that line. I imagined seeing him in America and seeing him or being at his home course, paints two different pictures of of Gulf. Well, the thing that came screaming through was that he was working class. His core. Father was completely working. You know, if I was working class man, the mom was working class woman. They scrap for everything they had he was an only child and. That's very common. You know? A lot of the American players who make it onto her come from middle class and upper middle class country code backgrounds, but in Europe, and in the British Isles, the professionals often come from from working class backgrounds, and of course, the the operative word glasses work, and he did the work. But I think this is really important work for him was play. He enjoyed it. He you know, you could see at a and made them different from tiger and other unanimous that you could joy that Gulf. Brought him you could see in how he played. You can see how he talked about it. You could see when looking at. Oh when Michael Bannon his in is lifelong instructor at a club near Belfast Hollywood. I think minute different club at that point. You can see it in the tapes, he had a lot of golf, and so you combine combined a working man's attitude with a joy from the work. And that's a also. Highly productive combination. I think that joy is very intriguing because at least at various points in his career joy can be a bit fleeting or lease. It seems like for Rory joy from Gulf can be a bit fleeting. He wins at the Wells Fargo championship in twenty ten is I win onto her. He'd wanted to buy prior to that he almost wins. Two majors in twenty ten shines in the twenty ten Ryder Cup. And then he reaches the masters in twenty eleven and as you know, he has a pretty horrendous collapse on Sunday. I guess knowing what would come how pivotal. Do you think that Sunday is Sunday April tenth two thousand eleven in his career? I think it comes. And goes, I think that's the spectacularly fortunate thing about being professional golf is that if you're at the elite level where the determine so there for you to plan there's always other chances, and it'll always be the one that got away. But but you have to. Live with that. So I don't think I don't think that has the extreme baggage weighs him down gives some scar tissue. Whatever phrase you wanna use as others, my many people at least believe that you have to lose one before you can win one ROY goes on to win the next major in twenty eleven US open by eight strokes. He goes on to win the twenty twelve PJ championship by eight strokes. So he's got two majors in early twenty thirteen you had another exclusive interview with him. He had withdrawn from the twenty thirteen Honda Classic. He's twenty three years old. And he admits to you that he regrets that moment. I feel like he's learning perhaps how big his decisions are or how big the stages, and that you become a very famous golfer, and there can be very famous blowback. Yeah. That's true. I happened. Right. The game story when he won the when he won the open. The US open at at congressional. He made it look easy. Like like, like, the great, Stu, of course, you know, winning by eight it is relatively easy. I mean, you never felt any pressure. But the pressure comes in other ways, and that's. By the basis of. There's there always is on you at every restaurant and and recall tournament and every press conference, and every interview, and you're you're young. And now, you're young, and you're rich, even though you're grounded person, you know, you have got great parents, and and friendships outside of golf and other interests and all the rest it gets to be more than you can handle. So there are freak outs. It major and minor ways and golf spin extremely fortunate that what constitutes a golfing freakout is something, you know, inappropriate. Like like walking off a golf course after I think about twenty six or twenty seven holes when the standard of the game is gut it out. I think these things boil over in all human beings, and the professional golfer has fewer outlets for than most and coming to terms of it is critical to having a long successful career. And of course, no one has still with that. That self-inflicted otherwise more than Tiger Woods, but any but any golfer who plays an extremely high level like worry has it. So so yeah, you walked off gawkers. Now. I think it's it's almost quaint that that at the time got the attention that it did. Because so many of these folks go standards about cutting out. This particular shoe. You know, start you finish are changing rapidly. I hope that doesn't change. But but at that moment. Yeah. That was the big deal. And he was playing earning Ernie was pissed. You mentioned tiger. And that brings me to twenty seventeen early twenty seventeen February twenty seventeen to be exact Roy's twenty seven he has won another two majors. The twenty fourteen open championship the twenty fourteen PG championship. He won the twenty fourteen WGC Bridgestone in between those two. So it was a streak of three wins in a row in three starts and made people start to talk about tiger. And then fast forward to twenty seventeen. And you're talking to him at age twenty seven he has a he's had a tiger peak. He's now engaged for the second time. But you're emailing back and forth with him. And he's talking about how he feels his life has rivaled tiger in some ways. He's talking about Gulf as if it's a relationship, and that it it needs constant attention, and it needs work. This was a very interesting version of ROY McElroy. You know, the sent in every profession whether it was politics or the arts or film, actor the all go through the same thing where you go through levels in life. When you're when you're highly impatience in and highly skilled, and one of the things, I know that he says something in that interview is that that, you know, we're talking about joy of golf of before and that professional golf diminished some of his drive golf, and that he felt it, you know, for instance, when he when you play the guts to national as guest with his father one particular that he was noting. But he can't wish to bring it back. Yes. To accept what it is. And and that's a very very tricky thing. And of course, the guy figure that out best was was nNcholas who came and went from, you know, played his golf left and did family things and fishing and hunting, and tennis and golf. Course design, and then came back to golf, and it was there for I think it's a tremendous challenge when you're when you're that super talented, and I'm sure he's grappling with that. Would that still today? I'm sure he will for the rest of his life. I wanna talk a little bit about some of the things that we know Rory to be in have right now. So he's turning thirty and his caddy is his childhood friend, Harry diamond how important you think Harry diamond is in playing that caddy role for Rory. Currently I would think that Harry gives worry exactly what he needs which is discouraging of knowing that he's there only for one reason to be completely in Rory's corner. And I think that's I think to your question, you know, what does he do why that's important because it's lonely too lonely game. It's always been a lonely game. And it's a woman professions. Even though you're surrounded by people all the time that brings me to another person that is in Roy's camp at this point debuted at the masters was Dr Clayton Skaggs who not many people know about yet. But he is a license. Chiropractor who is not exactly playing a chiropractor role for Rory. But he's with Rory and the putting green at Augusta. He's walking along the ropes with Rory as he's playing his rounds. Do you know much about this guy? Didn't you make a note about him at at the masters golf dot com? Yeah. So when I saw that I had never seen the name. I think until you wrote it, and so I went online and sorta reading about him, and I was extremely interested. Because. It shows a yearning. On ROY part? Yeah. The fact is worry was good enough at golf twenty years. Open by by eight two PJ championship by bunch to like to win in the dark with whatever. He brought I don't know much about this guy by just think it's extremely interesting that he exists in worries life shows a yearning on Roy's part. And and you know, it's it's easy to be do Smith. But I think it probably should be applauded because he takes flexible mind recognize that he needs outside help. So so I'm interested in. I wish I knew more about the. Yeah, I think the fans play a very interesting role in Rory's career. He seems very open to talking about things it kind of what's the appetite? So to say beyond just his encore success and his encore success, obviously whetted the appetite when he wins four majors. Before turning twenty six did he rise into the unfortunate spot where fans will never be satisfied with enough of his victories? They won't be satisfied with a players win this year, and that needs to be a major did he rise to that point perhaps a bit too quickly? You know, I mean, maybe that's maybe that's one of things he's looking to discuss with Scarborough, actor, doctor or or the other people's life other people in his life. How much of of what you do in your daily life. Do you do for yourself, and how much do you do because the expectations of others? He has no obligation his fans to win his obliga- Shen to spans same himself to to try his hardest air is no defense in golf. You cannot force somebody to shoot a higher score. Then then you can all you can do shoot the lowest score that you can't everything follows from that. So. So winning and losing his so random and golf. It's it's so hard to do to win so random so hard to do. And and then if you add the element of and expectation, you tend to be you'd have to be crazy to let it settle in your in your brain. And yet, maybe you know, we would know 'cause we're not no physician, maybe it's it's unavoidable. And maybe that's the thing that you have to learn to block out. I wouldn't think that would be particularly an issue with with worry. But but who knows? I want to end with a discussion about I guess where he goes. It's hard to say when if he'll win another major, it seems like a preposterous question to ask if win another one, but it's never fair to put a certain number of majors on expected majors for his future. More at large. Do you think he could end up being the greatest European player of all time? And I guess where do you think he sits on that list greatest? That's a really interesting question. Sean greatest. Is defined differently by different people. If you wanna talk about who's the greatest golfer ball time to me, it's nNcholas because of the AT majors the nineteen runner ups the length of the career, the golf course architecture career raising five kids, staying married doing philanthropic work. In other words, I look at the whole package the greatest most dominant golfer of all time, I would say tiger with Jones and HOGAN Niklas, you know, right near him. But I was that I would say it's tiger the greatest European golfer of all time after the time Morris is let's say, you know, after young Tom Moore's, no timers, but let's say, you know, since World War were let's say since World War Two is seven more than Faldo more than the lovable anybody at seventy because. Abby was there. Arnold palmer. He was the whole package like nNcholas was the whole package like Arnold was the whole package in in in a different way. Seventies the greatest who's their most accomplished golfer? It's Alda can Rory surpass Chevy for overall greatness, probably not because there's only going to be one I to to own your sport in your continent. And of course, he's moved. I'd say it's really made America his home anyhow, but getting become the most accomplish your peanut golfer time, definitely if we're lucky Sean twenty years from now, we'll be having the same conversation in some new medium as yet an invented. I would be amazed. If Rory is not clearly established as the most accomplished European golfer of all time that doesn't mean he's gonna be seventy. Seventy forever is going to have. A special ARA around his name just as Arnold does. But if someone's gonna talk who, you know, if you're going to talk about a great European player, like you're going to talk about Tiger Woods being a great golfer. I think it's gonna be worry end step. I think so too. Thank you, Michael. It's true. How Rory will be remembered in this game? That debate finds him at a very interesting place earlier this year, he entered a partnership with NBC sports that will provide exclusive content surrounding mcelroy's life on and off the Gulf course, it's macaroni, I multimedia machine and brings him to the masses, or at least those who subscribe, and it takes typical forms of media like Sports Illustrated largely out of the equation people the way they consume their their content as you it's very different than the wet was twenty five years ago. So to be able to partner onto yes, sorta go one on one with a fine. And it's my way of trying to give something back to to the game and back to. To those avid golfers that that enjoy the game as much as I do at this point in his life. The Alterman who Michael Bamberger found back in two thousand nine he's as Americanized now as ever he lives in Florida fulltime, he's miles beyond the point his career where money actually matters in two thousand eleven his Sunday outfit at the masters. It had six different sponsorships today. He's a Nike athlete in a tailor-made gulford. Nothing. More on his golfing person in some of these moves macro arrivals other global athletes. He's carved out media developments just like LeBron James. Kevin Durant Tom Brady. But when he's making decisions he's headstrong as anyone similar LeBron as well. He's fully cognizant of his gravity in the Gulf ecosystem earlier this year. Macro threatened that he would surrenders European tour membership playing Gulf in America and on the PGA tour was more important to him that idea forced euro to our CEO Keith Pelley into a scramble to change Rory's mind, that's the juice that Rory has he's earned that over his fruitful. If young and still. Growing career. It's twenty nineteen. He's thirty years old. He has his own podcast zone. Digital Gulf network that juice built up. It's only gonna keep growing major championships. Damned.

"Peter Wright club today. That's better than most. About in better than most. No. Expecting thing, ladies and gentlemen. Welcome back to the no laying podcast, Gary woodland, aka fake Brooks. Kepco is the twenty nineteen US open champion. He wins with a score. Thirteen hundred par Brooks kept go runner up at ten under par. What's I would think I thought it was phenomenal. I thought the golf courses great. I thought the competition was great woodland was exceedingly well deserved champion. I thought it was a home run this week, we will go to Randi now for a counterpoint. It was totally great regular tour events. Favorite AT and T. Pebble Beach Wells Fargo moved west. Yeah. Let's start, let's go right into that, then let's do that. What, what would you have rather seen them do with Pebble Beach, the issue is, there's probably not a whole lot? They could've done, which we can get into. I don't you know, maybe we need to talk about Pebble Beach, perhaps, becoming obsolete as championship Llosa. You're gonna love the twenty twenty one of and championship at Saint Andrews. Right. That, that take listen to. But continue apparently sources or saying they dumped a lot of water on it early in the week. So I guess that's one place. I would start the maybe should not have done that, especially with the forecast, the marine layer all week. Do you care to name your sources, Peter Kesslers guy that he was saying was watching from his backyard? One of them. No. That was more of a, a corroborating. I would, I would China's my back Shackelford chimney. They're all saying it was heavily watered early in the week. Yeah. And then, and then Catholic came in Tessler came in and the guy living off the nine toll for the last twenty five years, some dump a ton of water on it. Slowest putt, I think slowest, putty seen in the last twenty five stupid. We all know Randy doesn't like superintendents. Yes. That's true. He's got his on time. For the super is when Gary was chipping on seventeen. He goes we go. This is sick. This is sick. I'm like think about the super. You ready hated this week? They said so many dogs on the beat. That's true. He can barely watch. Another scuzzy thing is pinned on me. I'm just not comfortable. Being comfortable with them not liking him. Think they don't like you I. Yeah. I think they. Exactly like babies. But no, he's not like you either know babies are good. I'm great with babies, but I'm not good with dogs, but babies consent nervous holding them. So mine joint of the open. I was thinking about there's an inverse relationship like the happier. The playing pros are with the course the unhappier I am. And I thought you know this this week, almost to a man everybody loves the setup so great. You know, everybody happy to be here at Pebble Beach like coup by. Yeah. And it's like I'm not in. I'm really not here for that. That's not how I like my US Open's dig into that. You mean for this one week a year as a fan as a total? Yes. Total fan. I am just want to be entertained by one week year. It's almost like we got a little of that, at Bethpage, quite honestly. Yeah. And so, I guess that's a little bit of a what was more fun over lining. Pager pebble, will the thing was. I mean Beth pages couple days was a little bit more fun. But it's the whole brand. I mean that's part of the issue like the. Needs to decide what like what are they trying to do because they build their brand on like protecting par and tough right? Like hitting drivers finding fairways. And then I'm watching guys are hidden. You know, woodland had one hundred ninety yard shot out of the rough today is holding the green the fact they didn't have to hit driver. And holes of the open is a little bit. Maybe what one driver on the back nine today to drivers coming in, so the indictment, not to stick up for the US the indictment of the US J that listen to what you're onto in that I mean, because of what they've done on this end of the spectrum with technology and ignoring it for so long, setting up this championship for what you want, and what a lot of people want out of this, I'm not seeing singling, you out is almost impossible. And we saw that on back to back days, last year with Geno, cock of like too far on Saturday. Which I think you've said was. Someday softening, too much like that finding that line is such an impossible be pushed back though. Because as a fan again. I don't have to play in the tournament. Right. That's part of the beauty of like I'm just watching on TV. Last year, Chicago. Saturday was awesome. Like I can't find any fault in that, like we're pros unhappy. Of course they were that doesn't bother me. You know where where I've net out a little bit is. Feel like they were in a really good spot had into the weekend. This time I still feel like they're in a good tournament all good. But I think your your complaints. Randy are more about the golf course it self than the setup where there's gonna be a whole lot at train wrecks out there. There's only so much they can do is small greens and PO Anna and with the marine layer, you know, that it just it is what it is drink. I agree with you to like the elephant in the room is for sure the US and action on the technology and the distance like that, that probably underlies, everything. So I completely agree with both of those points. And then I think going back on your point about the US and what they wanna be I think they're getting, I think they're going to get back to that they're going to, but it's gonna take a couple of years, and they need to have some credibility, and they can't have Bodenheimer or whatever his name is just nuke. Everybody's first year out there and then they get to wing foot next year and. People already head on a platter. Well, so I, I kind of on some level I vehemently disagree with your Andy on another level. I totally agree with you and Tronto on the same same spectrum with you. But let's start with like they couldn't just come in and nuke this week because why not like do we legitimately think like players are going to boycott? Yeah. That was the run-up Rory and Phil. That's not article if they would have done if they wanted to do it. They would have done it. But at some point, it becomes such a distraction and such a such an onerous thing for the US J to deal with from PR perspective and all that, where right, cool. I kind of defeats the purpose of a lot of the other stuff that they're trying to do too. It's definitely know what else they're trying to do. Conversations trapped or good nebulous commercials about like, you know, in addition to this great championship this allows us to do all the other things we're doing to. You know. Connect people to the game with the fuck. Is that? I've never seen anything from the US. I don't know what that I saw. They took the anchor putter out of Raitis head. That's about the only other the attack. They've added away another. Your other golf governing bodies. I think it's very similar to, like politics, right? Yeah. Politics is local. So get involved with your local Muny get involved with your local course, get involved with your state golf sociation for me. I don't think I've ever had other than planning if you qualify here. They're never had any interface with the money to read a US congressman what they're really doing. One point, you make their Randy. I think about protecting par which I feel like I hear this so much year end year out, and I know we won't get a USDA person to put that on the record. But I get the feeling that is a ehre of the past. I don't know what when that stopped, but going to earn hills and I know is supposed to play harder than it was. But going to a par seventy two golf course. I don't think that at any point they thought this is going to be around an even par winning score. And I think they've done a good job in that regard of saying, I don't actually we're not going to actually care what the final score is conditions dictate the scoring. Pebble Beach that little clip? They showed of Tom Kite in nineteen Ninety-two hitting six iron on the seventh hole into that win was like that's what could happen, when you go to Pebble Beach, and you can't you have to set up a bumper in your setup. In some way, they got his benign of conditions as they probably could have realistically got. And that's what we saw was thirteen hundred win. And they let the conditions dictate that. And I thought that was a good way to run a term. I know what you mean is a fan. You wanna see people wind and bitch. And he's a big sandy Tatum guy. Love sandy Tatum. Was listen. We're gonna we're gonna kick these guys nuts. Every year. And there's nothing they can do about it. Which I think to, to the players defense in this as well. And I'm kind of an advocate for both sides in this. But I don't think the players mind it being hard. Like I don't think they mind difficult golf the best players. Definitely don't mind being hard and one the, the leader, scores were really low, but there were not a ton of really deep scores. There's not huge bunching, and huge batches of birdies from guys that were able to maintain it all the way through like everyone that made a run also gave a shitload of shots back because there were just stretches, the golf course that you can take advantage of you can make birdies. And I found that way, more exciting than Bethpage, because I felt Bethpage didn't have those stretches of, like, all right. Here we go. He's turning onto this part and he's got this opportunity if he executes that shot. He's gonna make birdie and like even some of the, the holes on the front nine this time around, or on Sunday, KEPCO missed an easy opportunity for birdie on six and easy one again on seven like he kind of let some of those get away and it looks like par on the car, but it's really like a half shot lost. So I don't know. I thought that made for an interesting competition, I think when you look back or I think when he looks back he'll look at those two holes, really the par fives in general the ones, but six and seven today. I think were what he'll lament the most. Yeah, I guess Randy. And not this is not you know, you're not being deposed here or anything. I've just trying to voice. Well, it's much more interesting than all of us, you're saying. Well, yeah, I agree. Let's, let's all say the same stuff, but I guess where I'm at is. Do you think that there's something different? They should have done, or do you feel cheated because we didn't get good enough conditions and or were maybe at the wrong golf course for what you like good question. I'm probably not smart enough. In course setup manner to really answer the first question. So I guess the easy answer is I don't know what was that? They're supposed to do necessarily. So that's part of my ignorance, the scientific convenient. And then sorry it was the second. We'll just repeat the question. Just if it's not that then it's basically feeling like, you know, maybe there was nothing you could've done. But I feel cheated because either the ball goes too far. This wasn't the right golf course. Or we didn't get the right wind or whatever. Yeah. I don't know cheetahs word. I just think is like, and maybe it's just style GIC or whatever. But I when I think of the US open, I think I don't think it guys necessarily going on runs, I think is almost like a war of attrition. Like, if I can make eighteen pars today, it's going to be a hell of around. Right. And it's almost like the Altima tournament, where you're not really scoreboard watching, because it's like dude. I just gotta take care of my shit, and I gotta just make par. And if I may eighteen of them, it's going to be a hell of a result, when Danny Willett and work is kin hold cotton, sixty seven's on Sunday. So that a little bit, I guess, and again that's for sure just like my preference. That's, that's what I want to make clear. And I think we've just, you know, like you said, solid like maybe that's just not possible anymore with. With us hope I think you're onto something with it being a beef with Pebble Beach because of the amount of wages. These guys are gonna hit into greens here if they thought for one second, we're going to get scores around, even par the what they had done to that golf course to manipulate it. That much Mary was a bit of a disaster on that part. I mean it was just like balls with wedges hidden greens and Ronald rolling off and three overhaul. When I picture Marian all I pictures, Justin Rose hitting literally perfect offshot into eighteen and it like one hopping over the green. All right, sick like chipping like what I don't want to know you're smiling and nodding Randy's clown gall. But what I don't like to see is like a chip and contest. And that was my point regarding Pebble Beach is a lot of people kind of nebulous Lee saying, like, oh, they should've gone harder. They should have done this. They should in this. I'm like, okay, let's break, like, let's get into that. What should they have done juice, the rough the rough was chip out in some spots? It was thick with three. Okay. They should have made the greens, firm degrees were mega firm. You could hear like what the first hop sounds like sounds like a major championship, which was awesome. And then if they go even firmer than that. Like the greens are so small a, there's not really any like, there's not very many pain locations on any of those greens, and be if, if you make them even firmer like yeah. We're just gonna be seeing a chip in contests and then saw it. I think we've mentioned this in the in the preview pod. But what ends up happening? There is like, okay me. DJ shitty golfer is coming into number number two with three would hit my seven hundred dollars. Okay me, and Gary woodland are both playing I wouldn't be able to get number two. So we'll, we'll number nine, I'm coming in with three would and I hit it around the green, and it comes in hot and it eight hops over the green into the back of he's coming in with a you know, eight iron and it's the same thing when, when the greens get that firm greens are so small. And so it's like me and Gary within should not be in the same spot in that instance, you know, like a good shot and a very, very average shot should not end up in the same spot. And that's what would have happened. I think if they would have pulled all those levers and really tried to, like, which I don't, so I completely completely agree with you on Shinnecock was phenomenal because the pin locations were brutal and I think that was the difficult part was the pin locations. Right. And like if you play if you played right if you had played Shinnecock, you would know that like the greens, there are massive, and they're so crazy undulated. And so, like, there are a lot like they can find pin locations like that. We didn't see anything close to that this week because they're not really out there like the slopes. Pebble you saw maybe on fourteen they could have had something crazy, like. Borderline unfair, which would I would agree with you there that would have been sick but. Outside of that. Like it's just really hard to find those pin locations because the greens, just aren't like that two things one, but real quick sorry, maybe they should maybe that's an answer. Maybe go blow up all the greens and you make them. If you're gonna have a seven thousand year, golf course, for major, then maybe the greens should be absolutely bananas, which is, I think we're all we're eight thumbs up on that one looking around the table, which I think, to that exact point, and we talk some in the preview pot about what we think of pebble and whatnot. And I think as a as a test of maybe major championship golf. I think it's phenomenal. And there's a lot of things that I think for a playability for everyday players that they should do a lot of reasons why they shouldn't do it also, which is they print tens of thousands of dollars every hour in times, of course down. But let's say capitalism is not going to be the way to win Randy over here. What they've already started doing is expanding some of these greens. And I think that is the right thing. They can continue to do to make this even better test for major championship golf to give you opportunities to bring the pins even closer to those bunkers. Get rid of some of that rough that is in between the bunkers and the green as it stands and have even crazier slopes in crazier pen positions, and make the playing of angles even that much more important in ROY talked about how important angles was, I think this was like the best blend that I've seen in recent memory of like tight fairways, but every teebox standing, it'd be like, okay, he needs to be on the left side here or he needs to be on the right side. You really had to really decide on a line when you're exactly, it was not just like it wasn't just hit it down the middle of the fairway on eleven. It was like, do you wanna pound driver all with the left or like do I wanna fade towards the center? I get bettering on the left. But I'm risking going the left rough. And I think as much as we love with angles. It's not the best at tournament golf because of how far the ball goes of this was a great combination of angles still matter. But, like we're also not gonna let you just mash it out of the rough. Yeah. You're gonna pay a price. And that didn't really get enough enough play probably the telecast is like they have been slowly making those changes to Pebble Beach like thirteen thirteen they added pin positions. Here. I think I think thirteen fourteen they both added a back. Right. Pin position that wasn't there in, in two thousand teens got expanded. Yeah. Exactly. Seventeen read that green is like I was out there for a couple of days this week, and that was seventeen minutes. Oh, god. There. But seeing seventeen green is was the highlight. I think just seeing like the left's, how different everybody can see like the two d. The shape of the green that it's that our, our glass Korean whatever, but seeing how much of a Punch Bowl, the left hand side is. And how thinking about, you know, Gary, I think it foreign he wasn't close to going at the pin, but Gary hit four hundred I think into seventeen and seeing what downslope there is right over that bunker and how you can get if you like if you land that ball in the wrong spot is so much more subtle than it looks on TV. And that was one of my biggest takeaways this week, a quick break. Let us know when the world's best show up to play odyssey continues to lead the way they were number one at Pebble Beach this past week been number the number one putter at every single major for twenty nine thousand nine at seven of them could use name all seven majors so far don't do it. Could you for women's men's and women's men's? I think like well the champion has like seventy. Yeah. US open a inspiration, US women's women's opened they're getting a bargain. There's gonna be like a sixty second. Moving on for this tradition. There were senior PGA championship tasting presented by kitchen. Mid. Mix. There were sixty odyssey putters in the field this week at the US open fourteen more than the nearest competitor. Odyssey dominance has led by the new stroke lab putters featuring a multi material. Shaft designed to improve the tempo and consistency of you're putting stroke, visit Ozzy odyssey golf dot com or head to your nearest retailer to experience stroke lab for yourself and start making more putts today. I've seen so many stroke, lead putters, I was looking at Woodland's driver, and it was like two tone. I was like, oh, cool. He's got like that strip shaft that's driver. That's I don't think the double flex would quite work as well. Driver. All right. Let's get back to the show. Okay. Brought up a lot of good points. I agree with them. No, no, no, I'm not gonna I'm really not going to rebut. I have a question for the group. There's one lever that the US could pull that maybe. Placates everybody. Hell, yeah. I know it's going to be do. I don't they make number six apart for a number seven par to make it like a par sixty nine and then it's the same condition eighteen should be part for eighteen could be a part for mega par sixty eight and then what about the championship though perception like make par for the course like factor in the technology and the distance and the you know. Like make it an actual par sixty eight. Then you're talking about, right? So you're talking about changing the perception. But earlier we're talking about just the actual viewing experience and what you want to see out of it. That's not going to materially change anything. I do think it would so would change some strategy or the way that guys went about stuff. But I don't think it's going to change the way that the tournament played. Maybe it'd be fascinating experience. I wonder if it would if eighteen was playing as a quote, unquote, par for I wonder if you would see different clubs that people would hit off the tee. I would I'm rolling my eyes at it be no. I know we all around the same pay in the world. You'd be like, oh, oh, there's this number on the scorecard next to it says it should be a four. So I'm gonna play differently. You're playing against everybody else. Playing that whole it doesn't matter. It could be a par eight in the strategy should be the exact same legitimately. If somebody told me like, hey, I know this used to be, but now it's apart for. Okay. I better sack up here, but this is relevant because this is how pros think I'm telling you. Yeah. So we before we get to any Johnson wrote a piece like word for word on this exact topic. So I don't know. That's where he got it from. But that's where that was his argument is just a that kind of illustrates like fuck, maybe we might have messed up on the technology stuff like these, these par fives are not par fives. And there's nothing we can do anymore. Like think about lengthening eighteen like you literally can't like the team oxes is on a rocky outcropping. And the green is on a rocky outcropping. You can't move either just because some of those rock outcroppings, working out there. Look very fuzzy. You're gonna have to from a drone to add. Yeah. And I know people through the pars are element me, and I'm like, okay, cool, then if it's irrelevant, and let's move it, then let's make like everybody should be on board with that. Then maybe it will like fans like me Joe fan who tunes in US open. It's supposed to be really difficult. I wanna see these pros mix them bogeys, you know, may maybe it's best for everybody. And that was that was Andy's point is a you get that kind of peace of mind, be if you and this is where it gets, really laughable, if you think about them going to. Trying to think what's coming up. Let's just say so wing foot didn't I think you'll hands did like a whole renovation wing put. Right. So a lot of that was probably, you know, in anticipation of this US open. It's like okay we can go like continually spend millions and millions of dollars at these future hosts sites by lengthening, tees, and lengthening holes and moving greens doing this. If Oregon's like change the scorecard. Printers scorecards. I don't know what do you think would be a better use of, of the resources of the US whose quote connecting players to the game? And so it's just when you think about, like, that's like, whoa, that's, that's, that's pretty interesting. I think going back, it's such a different lens that we look at the, the US open through where remember last year at Carnoustie versus like this is what nature gave us. So we're just going to accept it. This is what nature gave us this week. But nobody seems to want to accept it. Right. What was funny? I saw another tweet to that was Africa. Who posted it. But why were we all okay with thirteen? Winning at Pebble Beach because the wind didn't blow everyone's like, oh, hey, that's the way it goes. You know there was no win. But at Aaron hills, this is a fucking disgrace. I can't believe the scores. Are this low T? It's, it's the same issue. I don't know why people are upset about this. I or we start Truman showing, if you're getting ninety three million dollars a year from FOX, maybe bring out some put a dome over control set. Christophe els. You just read enough in like, you know, psychology behavioral finance, like it would have an effect either on players, and, or on spectators, that would be fascinating to see totally, and they've already changed the par like it plays a part seventy two. Am I right in that place as a par-five for resort? Yeah. Already changing shit, just make it like every year, you can't make a par seventy. Somewhere. That's a rule. Yeah. Andy's any last point that it kind of made in this article was if you did that if you extrapolated that out to every event, and so I think the example use trinity forest. So there's two I think three two or three par fives that should play his par fours. There's, you know, I think he in his article he said there's two to play his par fours, and there's one like three hundred yard par for that he said, should play the par-three, if you did that, like everybody's go, my God. This is stupid Twenty-eight unders winning or whatever. And you do that, like all of a sudden twelve hundred wins or something. And everyone's like, why would it you know it's a pretty? Pretty good. Wise he really played well this week. And so what you have then like if you did that every week is to his point like you'd have so much of a better barometer event to event because like he's he was saying, like, okay thirteen hundred US open like what does that mean in comparison to how well, did Gary within play in comparison in comparison to, you know, like twelve under at so and so or twenty under at another then when someone who's twenty under then all of a sudden, you're like whoa. Twenty under adjusted par man. That guy must've really coughed his ball. And it's just I don't know. It's a really interesting way to think about it. Yeah. And so I get the par- relevant, and it's like the theory is there. And I get it. But if we're not gonna take the action then then what are we must be somewhat relevant or else? Make it a damn parts of exceed. What was the other lever that you thought he was going to pull? Yeah. Where did you think I was going that everybody had to play the same golf ball? Yeah. Sure. Yeah. That's a no brainer. More thought about that. It's like I can't believe there's not a uniform gullible, that's at the professional level. Absolutely. I mean, it would address stocks like twenty minutes or it'd be like take almost all. We just show of pebble and play it. And it's like the scorecard is basically what it'd be like it's like apples and oranges Bill, like imagine ten players rolling with their own times falls on their serve right play with. Play with your specially designed ones. That's asinine. Yeah. Back to the actual golf tournament and the winner of it. And we talked to Gary woodland. I mean, I don't I don't know really exactly what to do with it. We weren't. We're not expecting him to win, but it's not a totally out of left field is not a Ben Curtis. Todd Hamilton winter woodland was on a certain career trajectory, and he kind of stopped rising kind of just leveled out to what I thought was this level of tour player, and I was not expecting to step up and win a major championship man. He was unfaithful the shot that he had fourteen to sixty five straight up a hill. It seaside like one thing, it was really refreshing to see guys actually have to hit normal shot yardages, because they bald as not fly out there that shoddy hit on fourteen one in the tournament. Like when he was standing over that I thought back to Mickelson's quote that he told bones when he's in the pine straw on thirteen at Augusta and fills, quote was like at some point, I'm going to have to hit a shot under a lot of pressure to win this tournament. I'm going to do a right now. Now. Yeah. And he stepped up and did it and got up and down to birdie and won the golf tournament that drive. So I know a lot of what we had kind of said was is it good that he, you know, he didn't have to hit very, many drivers coming in, and I guess it's probably fourteen and I'm trying to think where else would have even hit drive around the back. Nine I mean, maybe then but even that driving fourteen. I mean he like hugged, the corner perfectly gave them a chance to to get their into. And then so that's raining. We're kind of past the watching guys get addicted conversation. But I thought, what was really cool as like actually seeing guys, showcase really great shots because again, I don't wanna keep prefacing sentences with, like I was out there this week, but being out there like you would trust me. I saw a lot of guys get viscera this week. Shout out to a couple of our friends of the program, but like it was not as easy as it looks watching the guys who are literally playing the best of the one hundred and fifty six players and. And seeing shots like what would hit the shots at kept a hit on the front nine that's what maybe there was just like lack of context, what this came to be. Maybe they need to stop showing as much of the winners and just show a lot of guys who are playing shitty. Listen, one tweet that was Justin Rose enough as on f s to, and that's. The tweet that was like for all Olympic races. They should have an average man. Totally so yes, it looks like so I, I don't wanna air him out too much, and maybe this is a weird segue from congratulations to gear for winning, but followed Zach Blair, a lot on, on it might have been the guy on Thursday. But he like he shot eighty three. Zach is like among among the best players in the world. You know, when you compare to look at how many people play golf one percents. Yeah. And he said that he tweeted this, too. But, like he, he missed eight greens with chip shots like that. It was not easy act like we played with him in Greenville, and literally we had breakfast with Rex within that morning. And we're just kind of talking about the course and talking about game, whatever I was like in Greenville like you. Shift, your balls off, like it was crazy to see, like, how good of a Chipper you are, and he went out in over the next two days. He missed eight greens with chip shots. And it's like dude, I promise. It was not playing easy. It was playing really easy. Four, Gary woodland, and Brooks cap because they were hitting a lot of fucking good golf shots down. Cock and listen down. Yeah. So that's actually, you know what I just thought of that. Now that might be the way to save the US open play like just show, more shitty gophers show, more guys who are really struggling, I'm might be how you doing. Tension for sure. Yeah. Think going back to woodland. That was that was a segue mysterious back normally on the one. When he was in the web dot good. Honest. I don't ever remember with them on the web dot com tour that was kind of be my point. He's can we just because I don't think we're going to get back to it. Can we get there's one block? I want to get on. So I don't know if they're making the announcement today or would, but apparently web dot com is out as a title sponsor of the web dot com tour and it's going to now be the Korn ferry tour, which is a management like Korn consultant so porn period consult. I don't know if, if the C's going to be part of it, but that was the block getting in on I would love to bran this thing like the KFC tour a tour. No, let's call it the KFC tour everyone listening to it forever referred to as the KFC tour forever. This thing. Colonel Sanders tour. But it has to have a chance of catching on, we need the players calling it the KFC tour we need. They call Sanderson farms should become a KFC tour instead of call on the twenty five at the end of the year. They should call it the twenty four bucks. Love. I saw that twinkle in your eye taunt. I love that. Tough for people just allow Renault twenty six is here, just outside the bucket. Yeah. The buckets, tough sounds like some ambush marketing potential case through that's true. Sorry, woodland, no more distraction. I tell a quick. On woodland specifically, I think I said this on the live show, but this is not that significant story. But how crazy it was to me, my dad and I were at the twenty ten US open at Pebble Beach, never heard of Gary bragging, and just I'm walking around, we're walking around, and we get to t- nobody's following Gary woodland. And he just walks with a certain swagger. Now he was walking with double, the swagger. Just losing the man. And he hits his drive onto, and he just absolutely bombs it, and even grinned the crowd at little crowd that was there after he hit it. And, you know, we start walking up kind of we're making our way out to the good part of the property up there this ball like almost in the bunker way down there, like somebody already punch out, and we got up there, and it was woodland, he hit sandwich in a number two at the US open, and we were all like at the same time, like, who is this guy, so immediately became like one of my favorite players back then, and to see it all come full circle from win the US open at Pebble Beach, nine years later was very weird out about it kind of experience. So I was gonna say just going back to twenty eleven when he kind of I burst on the scene. He is not finished fell outside the top one hundred the end of the year twenty twelve but since twenty thirteen he is not finished lower than sixty third in the world. These kind of plateaued. Yeah, he's always he's, he's had at least one second place finish on the PGA tour every year since twenty thirteen. Like that's a. Consistency in at least really three to five. Tenth place, finishes or better every year. So I think that and then be just earlier this year. I mean, the, the light bulb that went off in his head, as far as putting absolutely remarkable. You guys are never going to guess the answer this question, never, I promise, you won't get this Amsterdam. Who do you has more regular PGA tour wins? Gary woodland or Brooks kept goose you'll never get already. Come on. Within three regular PJ and got to the now. He's got woolens got four wins. Rick Scott five. Well, that's cool. You need them. One other point on woodland out to Maddie Kelly every every week before a major always ask them. Hey who should I be looking for this week? He said like first thing off his tongue. Dude, woodland really, really like on this course he's gonna hit that two or three iron. He's aggressive. He's, he's confident like in Mattie. I think that's the other thing about woodland is all these guys out there seem to like him, like he kind of comes off, as this Uber. Aggressive, bro. But he's actually I think there's, there's a good. I think he's just old behind. I think he's just crazy confident. Exactly. It's like how can you get to where he is without being what he's not a douche, which is very hard line to straddle. We'll know when I was in Malaysia during the fall of twenty seventeen we're walking back from a restaurant and the players just stick out like sore thumbs. And we end up the same stoplight giving it across the street. Gary woodland stick out of Malaysia and woodland, it was there with a couple of other guys. And I've never met Gary woman in my life. And we're just kind of standing there and he just like turns me sub bro. It gives me like. I had to ask agent after it was like you'll do I know get met him. He's like, no. Like he's like that with everybody goes at people and says, what's up and just start talking to him. So he seems to be very, very well liked guy so good. I thought that was I thought rainy legitimately I thought you had a lot of very good like criticisms from the fan perspective. But at the same time I thought it was I don't know. That was great championship a couple of things civic to woodland, I did find it surprising. This was the first time he's closed on a fifty four hole lead. Yeah. He had been over seven. Oh, I didn't realize it was that stark hope for Ricky. There's very interesting. But to your point to it's like, man, if he could of converted even two or three of those, he's, you know, in our minds is probably I always pick him seems he always plays. Well to guess too, which I looked up. He's one top twenty five in his. One of those guys kinda like rose with you know, I don't know. Man. I don't know what it is. Like I always feel like he's just he's got a good game for Augusta. It's fairways, but he's never quite potted. Well enough. This year. I was still bummed like, really the being this week, and then when he started leading woodland really, because he says last year. That's so yeah, he beat him in the Phoenix at the waste management beat them up to after remember who won Phoenix this here. Rickie fowler. I know dinner. That's my favorite game to play at the end of the year. Just like who I could probably tell you, I watched every tournament, and I tell you maybe forty percent of the guys. You know what that's like for the Sony like the next year? Sonia, like the not the sun, excuse me. The Hyundai Kappa Lewis like try century second. How is this? Especially now that like the opposite field guys like bid desert team guys. Get it. Julio bell. Deep. No calming cut. You know what doesn't quite feel right? Is that Gary woodland in lieu used as and have the same amount of majors? This is within I ever five major intestine Johnson. Gods? Disappointing we go. Go ahead. Dust. And I mean he's got he had to have this circled on his county for, like five years. They're like the same age too. Dustin only ones fifty four minutes at Petrie wasn't that great after fifty four this week, either now one major get you on the list with some interesting names. Yeah. There's some some Freddie Davis. Love chasing day. Yeah. Justin Rose JT hurt us. Sean mckeever in Curtis rule that was cool. I was going to answer this one on a heater for the next exam years or so. You wanna a few classic the Booz Allen, classic good shit up four hundred the world when he won the British au third alternate acted up. He made he won a few more times, so quiet and no creek, Ohio. We're kind of on the subject, but Curtis. Really, I've been no with Gary woodland winning. Does he fit more as a we've been on such a run of strong, major champions recently? Where where do you see him is he kind of a one time outside the box type winner is he, he might be the Mendoza line? He could be that he could be. It could be the woodland line. You know, is he above or below the woods is woodland above or below Charles Schwartz will say about? That's a good question Schwartz. Danny Willett or the to kind of comes above willies about because he's had a longer, like for me, the fact that he's had eight years or nine years, or almost a decade out on tour, and he's been consistent as he has. And he's he's one and he's just a really solid golfer. There's nothing fluky about it. And I could see him when one or two more over the next decade, I would say it's, it's definitely not a fluky. Fluky winter, like some of the throwaway names that we just listed off. But I think that it was weird. It's one of those things that looking at his stats and stuff, you're like man he he's number twenty five in the world and he hits it really far and he got. He's putting it great. And like you said, Trump when you're watching you're kind like, oh, there's no way he's going to. He's going to hang on. And then he wins. You're like, yeah, of course he was forced. He won the us. Let's go. Let's do this. We'll stop me or just kinda yell out fluke when we get to like a fluke, major champion. Disclaimer here. Ships, flew million. Plus, I think like almost none of us have automated, correct. All right. Gary, maybe Neal. He's not here. Brooks KEPCO tiger. Woods brooks. Kepco Francesco Molinari Brooks. Kepco Patrick read Justin Thomas Jordan's beat Brooks KEPCO Sergio Garcia, Jimmy Walker fluke. I'll say fluke, lewke top ten in the world. He's a backstop. He was playing on run then so good Henriksen. Also, we don't know that that would happen. That's true that could have been a computer simulation, as we've mentioned many times, Dustin. Johnson Danny Willett. Danny will again, was like thirteen DJ. To block I'm starting to scope out. I've been held on. Jason day. Zach Johnson, flew Jordan's beat Jordan speed here. Rory mcilroy ROY McElroy Martin Bubba Watson, Jason Duffner. Phil mickelson. Justin rose. Adam Scott Rory McElroy Ernie Els look that was that was. Yeah. Ernie Els it wasn't a fluke that he won a major. It was a food. Yeah. Yeah. I'm saying at that time that was fluky Webb Simpson Bubba Watson, Keegan Bradley win was a little. It was see, like woodland feels that cut above Keegan. I think for sure keen was rookie is like he was fresh off the KFC deal too. How? But he'll chew is how you wait. I think he was like, number seven in the buck Lynn. Stepped on. To me. I don't even if he didn't have the eight to nine years of background, man. Like, he's, he's still sleeping on the thirty six four lead to win. That's what Jimmy Walker was wire-to-wire like that. I have a hard time. Call him effluent again. It's conjecture alleged. It's alleged. I go wired on Darren Clarke computers. That's the one that is. That was a fluke win because he didn't do anything after that to the rest of his career. And that's goes broil should DJ shank did out of Al. Yeah. In the realm of what we've experienced recently in majors. That was a somewhat fluky win. I think we can say but at the same time I in the, the twenty fifth ranked players, which is like speaking to what we've been through in the last. I mean we kept saying that all the previews, it's like dude, it has been so good lately him. It's crazy. How good it's been. It's everything. Speaking about everything. What could we talk about this? I will step out of the room. What did you think of the television experience this week? I'll get mine out of the way because wines, very service level. I thought it was I think FOX is great. I think they're audio is topnotch. There's, there's a clean modern presentation to it that I think is lacking by CBS. I think I think FOX and NBC do a good job. I really like FOX for. Some of their shot tracer some of the camera angles. I thought were very cool. And I think they're audio is probably the best audio of all the broadcast crazy. What a difference that makes it seems like there seems like something that would be the least important and it Scott. It's I think everything objectively on all the objective fronts. They do really, really really great job. I think it's just the fact that they don't get as many reps. Yeah. They don't they practice and they made huge strides last few years, I felt like they kind of they, they may have plateaued a little bit this year. They make more errors than anyone, there's more like audio cut, which is the most forgivable thing, I think, because I know they're trying to do a million things, and I just don't care that much about small little showed us golf shots tolerance level for what will put up with exceptionally exactly, I think they buy a lot of favor with people like us just because of how much and I got an Email from somebody today that I sent out the request after I time that CBS did twenty golf shots. Thirty minutes for somebody else at time segment. He's like, dude, I time to segment and they had five and a half minutes, commercial in that segment, which is like kind of a lot for FOX. And they showed forty Gulf shots, thirty minute segment, which is pretty damn good. I thought just one little thing that audio point that, first of all, Graeme McDowell got a lot of cover on the broadcast, which is fine. I like Graham. He was on there a lot. But won it last time. Yeah. One of the things that I thought was so cool. And I followed him, I think it was all Friday afternoon before everyone of shots. It was just. Right. And they got that every single time the deep breath, that he took right before he went to hit a tee shot. I was like dude that, now I feel like I'm standing go man. What's going to happen? Yeah. I'm not getting somebody talking over it was like that's his routine every time at every section at the same spot of every pre shot routine. And I was like, whoa, I never knew that in that I watch a lot of golf, and that's really cool was wild was Nance coming in the booth and being like, man, I've never seen. Seen some of the shots for Florida. Out there, all that, this guy has has done the broadcast from Pebble Beach, how many years Rono for CVS seventy eight. Mean it's wild. It's like, yeah, man. This is kind of over saying, Jim. Yeah. And then I think FOX Baid lost a little bit of. I wanna say identity but they lost a little bit of their mo- Joe when they hit primetime each night when they switched like they would switch it from f s one to FOX on Thursday and Friday I feel like they were trying to be all things to all people and broaden the base on Thursday and Friday when they did that when you got Stanley Cup and NBA finals on, you got golfers are watching your telecast, just keep doing what you're doing. Keep keep the keep the flow going from the afternoon, a lot of segments lot of features, which I don't even I don't we pretend like we know the business. I don't know how the business actually works and whatnot. I don't know why they have to do so many features and run for fucking fifteen hours, a day, they need to go to the bathroom. They have commercial breaks for that. And they have not. People are watching that Cedric the entertainer, I missed that one. I was at pebble mentioned, what was the, the entertainer, it was like him. Rehashing Tigers run in two thousand it was like a five minute segment, and they replayed it twice. It was it was not great. What is he was in his some show on FOX? He was in who's your caddy also. I don't know if he had a unique perspective on the golf in that way Stevie, you're tight. I thought Brad Faxon really emerged as a true next level analysts and the best color guy that FOX has. And I like Paul easing her I do. I really do. I, I didn't hear one nice word on social media about him this week. And I did not think he was spectacular. I definitely did not think he was spectacular in the broadcast, and I like the I like the folksy charm and the feel like your your buddies talking to you. I felt the reservoir, just ran a little bit dry. A little bit early in the weekend with him almost seasons. Like as in your needs to be part of a three man team. Yeah, it should be, you know, a host as for kind of the folksy, you know, quick cuts jokes. And then, like a Brad Faxon. Yeah. Why not bring facts and analyze? That's what I'm getting getting just make it a three man boots and have the two of them play off each other, as is probably better in a more free flowing. It's a lot. A lot is being put on singer. And I don't think he's put in the best position to succeed. And I think like Faxon in bacon are the best prepared golf guys to talk about golf and like buck in Zinger together. Just don't bring that same kind of Gulf Centric energy to it. You know, it's kind of more of the like you're talking about being all things to all people buck is kind of brought in there and someone, always a very polarizing figure, but he's recognizable. And like people will watch even if you hate Joe buck you will tune into watch him like Howard tune into listen to Howard Stern, if you hate him, but I don't know. I feel like the really onto something and for true, golf fans that bacon facts and do Brett Quigley. I think it's pretty good. They're on course. Guys do a really good job. And the combination of all the different shots. They give you a really, really cool viewing things where I fall out, at least with this weekend. Is it didn't feel like we've much in and out of the two booth crews seemed like it was mainly Zinger in book, at least. Saturday Sunday late in the day. Whereas I feel like in the past, they've kind of switched on and off a little bit more. Also DJ really idea for Steve Flesch to drop the c in his. Private. Because he's both flesh get it. That's coming that up. I thought I said that it confidence. Did you Steve flesh from northern Kentucky hack as you mentioned every time he's on TV? So my retirement from coverage takes. Criticize this. But I, I can set the parameters in retirement. It was from complaining about the broadcast. So I do want to say something positive I thought you'll hands was exceptional. I thought he was gills such a cool addition to the broadcast. I thought he did such a good job explaining, a lot of like you know what you're about to see what guys are trying to do. What the history of you toll was why some things can't be changed. Why some things could be changed. I thought like I forget, I think it was him at him. And. Yeah, it was him. And Joel Klatt for a while. And they were going back and forth. And that was one of the more entertaining sections of the day. So more of that I thought was more hands later in the day next year. I bet they will next year because they're wing foot. He's doing the whole the renovation there. So which does my thing. I'm just. Fuck entire the whole like primetime. It's like man. It's hard to keep yourself from watching too much golf because it comes on. Yeah. So early. And then eat stays go to sleep, the last couple of nights, because I've been jacked. Well that was probably due to Chaz reviews performance. Listen, of course, what a gritty what a gritty performance from chess, and they showed that was the other complaint with, with FOX, where they missed is listen. We're really hard on other teams for you know missing a lot of shots. I thought Jez Eddie jetted, and he played like one of the steadiest US open rounds. You could play today and they didn't show bother to show. He was never a factor to win. And I get it like there was some real drama going on. And there were three guys in the mix. So they, they focused on that they got really honed in on that. And they delivered on that. That's the most important thing. They miss some of the other stuff and not showing says if you felt a little personal did he. He's a walk on. Well, yeah. I mean that was kind of. Onto the. Kind of my block is he reminds me of? You know, when you're when you're playing high school football, and there's, there's a kid who you know, he's got no business starting. He's got really no visits feel that he might get hurt. But he's just trying so hard. And you've got kind of apathy much more talented starting quarterback or shutting receiver. And so the coach kinda uses Chaz is like jazz is the, you know, you can pick which one is in this analogy, but he's the one that the coach kinda uses to motivate the other players, like I think I mentioned this actually in the Phoenix pot when he got beat God. If I had eleven Chas reason on this team, you know, we wouldn't have to worry about getting bounced from the playoffs in the second round, really cool as Rory Chaz this week, ROY learn Lori like it literally is that quarterback that tip. Mike Davis might be the coach of the TV put put Rory Kay. I think this is good for change. If you could see Chas, you could see great for one day, it's gonna make you a better player is Chaz. The guy we always say would would be racing down a del mar in the afternoon slow. That, that one hundred ninety five pound defensive tackle who's got the face mask that nobody wants. Yeah. The bar. Yeah. The centerpiece bar that facemask, we'd like you're going to high school football practice ever, all, please, don't give you that one. Just give you the Dion one or whatever we've, we're pretty far into the pot. I don't think this names been wrenching mentioned yet until just now ROY McElroy cat was not guys. I am proud of myself Roy's, no one loves ROY Moore than me. I was proud of myself that this week like going into last night. I was like this is not falling for it's going to happen. I've seen like I'm not doing this. Yeah. And peaked early kind of. And that's where it's like you clean needs more winds on fine with him. Peaking actually fine with him not winning the US Open because it's like it's more important for him to win the British Open about her majesty the Queen. I don't know if it's an either or. I think he could Brooks not. Yeah. In a vacuum very important this year that he went. Well, why is that because he's going to be officially dead? Five full years without winning a major in some of the prime years of his so who disciplined, you more Rory or DJ. This week or this week this week because Rory's that's more of a reflection on like a my expectations for DJ have been lowered. Yeah. Not like in a joking. No. I mean, I just don't there's some about DJ just I don't have much confidence in them, whispering and trans ears. The ROY how well ROY has played this year and winning two events and one of them being a fake major like elevated what we thought of him for this week taking that back though, I didn't expect him this setup to be great for him. We deny both picked or no rain. I both picked him as well. He's not gonna win this week, so him top tending was actually not a surprise. But I think as good a fine week, he showed some grit, more than usual, just, you know, chipping manufacturing's and stuff. He played the par-five is like shed, which was. Everybody. Yeah. It's hard to this is where the takes get dumb. I think but I'm going to make me even dumber. But it's, it's really easy to forget that somebody wasn't in contention like nobody's disappointed in, like, Tony female. He missed the cut, you know. But we're saying, gosh Rory the way that he played himself into contention. And he didn't win like that's so disappointing. And so it's on one hand, you got to give props to God. He was six under three rounds at the US open. That's really good and played really good golf to get there. Yes, he did. And then making he comes out and like when you're like dude. All right, Rory. You're one of five guys on this leaderboard who can just absolutely flame. Throw that front nine and you go out and like make like the worst double ever onto cool. Oh, that's over. That's very disappointing. How many top ten's Roy's got an majors all over all of them. Probably like probably eighty is no. It's twenty twenty guys actually there you go. About. He's super talented. Yeah, he gets graded on a different on a different scale. I mean we've gone into that, but. This is I made cut at the US open since twenty fifteen and process. Yeah. Yeah. That's, that's pretty jarring. So I think wing foot next year will be should prodigious good one for him to pay should have been good though too. But again, I think that just kind of puts into perspective not to bring everything back to Brooks. But just how freaking like consistent and good. He's been in, if we got this out of Rory that's what felt like a win of like walk, God. That was as close as he's been since two thousand fourteen like he's, he's knocking back on the doorstep. And if kept go to one today, he would've is rated Rory's, major career in two years. Yeah. Have been Rory. It's still. He's trending right? He's trending in the right direction. He's he's making. He want he won last week he will kind of like him going into the players where everybody was like, oh, I don't know. He's, there's all these close calls, like is he gonna win any kind of goes and boat races given hip players. I think that's, that's always thing is like it's never bad to, to just give yourself chances shout, Ricky being contention. Well before we get there. I. On the Brooks thing. I don't know if we're gonna talk about Brooks more or not. But I almost feel like I have a very similar feeling too. I know the sound stupid, but to what we felt when tiger when the masters I can't even like can't can't wrap my head around this like Brooks has been Atlanta really back. Yeah. It's, it's shocking. You don't. I don't hear anybody talking in talking about it in a way, that makes sense like everyone just kind of. Yeah. I don't know. It's pretty good, right? Like notes, historically hood. It's insane. Like people should be freaking out. But I just don't know of anybody really knows how to feel it's kind of weird bothered me. And I know by technicality willy Anderson won three straight. US Open's ending in nineteen zero five. I wanted, just we like, dude. No one has done this. Nobody's fucking straight. US. Like that would have been you're going to be hearing from Williams said nation on Twitter. Did did Brooks not today because Nike put him in a white plane hat. Well, when he was like, we can't pay out anymore, bonus money. Thank you. Can't we can't have you? I think bringing Randy's whole thing back into this. This was as live under par US open setup gets and Brooks does not win on live. Under park golf courses is interesting hills. One week to week tour either I'm saying, yeah. Speak. Still band-aiding it. It's not great. Not good. It's not great if feels like. He's giving me when I watch him. Yeah. Done look easy as an outside observer, like sometimes you just watch guys and you can just like it looks easy. Like you feel comfortable watching them speeds. You don't well that was my thing I was texting guys on Thursday before before teatime, and I'm watching him. I don't I'm not at that many vents. I don't really get to watch him up. I was watching go through his whole routine, and the chemical is out there, and he's like hands on this is fifteen minutes before he's like getting ready to go to the T for a major championship, where everyone's like you should definitely win your this is so perfect for you. And they were grinding it was so unsettling to watch and it's like very routine stuff. And of course, like I wouldn't begin to. Think that I know what they're working on or whether that's abnormal or not. But it's weird as hell to, to watch. It is stressful to watch. I feel like maybe this is Jim going for and that it's like watching somebody tried to do to stack like fifty two cards like a house make I'm not calling his game a house of cards. But it's like for a while it was like duty get to the second level, and it would fall apart, and like it would, and now he's on the third level of the cards. Is it going to happen now? And then like falls apart he keeps climbing levels, but like it's still like he's got he's leaking oil in so many places that it just never gets all the way to the top. I'm not I'm not calling a house of cards. But here's here's a two minute analogies. Oh, that's so cool. Make that analogy on Father's Day because we've been trying to potty trained, Freddie. And that's kind of help potty training feels like getting. Oh, God on toilet. On the side. Like you totally missed it. But like man, you're, you're closer third level. I was gonna say what levels yesterday? We've regressed since he got sick. But it just it just feels like happy. Father's Day, by the way, there's more and more good things going on yet. The, the things that are bad are still there in new Ming. And they bite they just rear their ugly head and you just the gremlins, Eddie Pepperell talked about. Yeah. He looked like he had mad fucking gremlins. Yeah. That's a good way to think about it wasn't had like, no grandma, and you look at KEPCO to. It's like dude, he is so free and easy. It is just pure in the moment competing and speeds feels like he's fighting and he's fighting back to Rory in feeling. Like I just don't feel the real threat in it because we're watching the guy who is the threat kept. Get is the guy that we wanted this killer that we wanted so many different players to be. And we said this after the PGA but, like he, I don't wanna say, proved even more to me, the not winning this event, actually coming in with real pressure of having one of these and having to double defend and having one guy beat you may be the most impressive of. All this. Yeah. No, you're exactly right. Like we've played three majors and two guys of beat him fright. That's four out of the last four. Yeah. And it's just it's like, when, you know, Jack talks about this, a lot and stuff too. But it's like when you put yourself in that position. And one guy be too. It's like it could go either way, you're like you're kind of, at the proverbial rub the green at that point, you know, it's just who gets rakes to chips in who makes like what in this IT Brooks is playing good enough to win. Every time he tease it up at a major, which is which is the funniest qualifier. Yeah, but like not only that now though he's got nowhere to hide. We expect it now this week was like the most expectation we've ever had. It's like all right do good. Like we're watching go do good. We're gonna watch all your shots. And for the maybe the first time since he won the first one, I felt like I cared felt like I was rooting for him to do it and getting pissed when he was hitting bad shots and felt like maybe he's burst through and it he's not always he's, I don't think he's ever going to be the real likable guy. But he's also he's successful enough now that we feel like we're watching some history, and there's a certain validation, you get when you when you feel like you're watching something that matters storage relevant, or it's a lot different to watch him at Erin hills where you're kind of, like rooting for rooting for the train to go off the tracks. Rooting for someone else to come back and win or whatever it's different to watch that than watch him today after everything that we've seen. It's like no, he's better than everyone else. Like he deserves to win. You know, that's where it almost felt like to me, it was like if he doesn't win. He's he's getting robbed because he's the best player. Well, it kind of. And I was trying to find the good good. It's hard to mean in the middle of all this going on. But like Thomas Jefferson is right in the you, ever see, like independent that somebody will have a fake, like a stuffed animal that's similar to a pet in the pet will look at it like all confused, like who's this impostor? Like that was KEPCO watching a little bit you call them the Rinaldo statue. He was like the worst version of camp. Did I looked up the Rinaldo statute that would have been very insulted who is the result of that's like maybe coke wreck? It's like the Rinaldo version of, of KEPCO Rinaldo the statue. We're talking about, like that notoriously famous bad bust. What else we got Victor Holland. I don't want to start with this with Victor hobbling, but it was like a lot of the treatment he got. He's incredible player. Sears are going to be very good pro. A lot of GM was like unbelievable accomplishment. And I looked it up. When Jordan speeds was twenty one years old, he was winning the USO as his second major one the my lead into be like, yes. He's an absolute stud, the fact that he doesn't take David's with mid irons double blows my mind. I don't understand this week like main Randy swing so hard, and he has euro fear, and that's wing. And he looks like he's tailor-made to be tremendous profession. You know what I unlike DJ? When gang is told Randy holy shit, dude. You're like you're even worse shallow than Sergio. One thing I absolutely love is I am still bummed about this year later that I didn't really watch. I forget what we were doing. But didn't get to watch much of the US at pebble last year. I love when the us is like a lead into the US open. That's a great way of doing so cool, and USDA gets gets a good test. Run to figure out what they wanna do for, for certain pain locations, and how they wanna grow their off, and I think that's such a cool thing. I hope the USA keeps doing that. I don't really I guess, we could look at the schedule of the Pinehurst year where they went back to back open in US, women's open. That was great. That was a really cool touch. So the ams going back to chambers right? And they announce that I think they did in this year not this year, but down the road, it's going back chambers day. Maybe that's a trial balloon for another US open there watching this week, also made me think like guys what were we doing? There's a Nuff when you look back at some really bad fashioned stuff. What would we do? Try to do here. But like Louis got these golf courses. I love shavers. Another look at the news up there. Pure. I just I just think that there's like I started thinking about it was like, man. How sick would it be? If I knew we knew in five years, we'd be going back to pebble. I got we know the shots. We know the golf course and I think it's. And I know it's going back to pebble in the future. But I think like what they do with the old course and it's like every five years, I know it's going to be six now like it's frequent enough time that it's not enough time that you forget the Gulf holes in forget the shots or whatnot. So speaking of pebble if you'll indulge me a few things from being on site. I thought that a, it's awesome to be at a US open haven't done that since chambers bay and one of the things that really stuck with me was kind of one of the things I said in the in the last wrap that we did, which was like the gap between majors and regular vents has never felt wider to me. I have been to the AT Pebble Beach. And I know this obvious because we're talking about the US open, and there's a ton of fan interest, and it's one of the four biggest tournament of the year. However, I think I've been to the AT Pebble Beach, three or four times and coming into the gates this week. I thought I was on a different pieces of like a different piece of property. Like I've mentioned on this podcast. Ton like, oh my God. Go to the Pebble Beach tournament like it's so relaxed. It's so chill. Like you can go see all these great golf shots. There's nobody stressed out. You're not like this week was jarring just like how much infrastructure, there is how many people there are like I was walking outside the ropes with, like somebody's and stuff and just not being able to see shots of like very low priority players. Like there's just so many people everywhere that it's impossible see shot. So where I'm going with that is not a complaint. It's just like it's crazy to see the interest in in these things compared to a regular tour. And that's I'm telling you that's something to keep an eye on. Because like I don't know how that can be like, I don't know what happens to the tour if that chasm keeps getting bigger and bigger. It's almost like the more guys like the more like the tour promotes guys. I don't think it's like people tuning into regular season events. More it's more like the more you promote Gary woodland. For winning in Tampa. The more like people are gonna be jacked up to see him at the US open. You know, and it's almost like it's almost like ripping really weird. I said, how like what is tiger scheduled for the rest of the year because the tour still seems to be at Tigers still the needle, and they she is. Yeah. And he didn't. All right. So he didn't play between the masters and the PGA. And then he played the memorial. And then he played the US open, and then it doesn't sound like it's gonna play again before the British Open presented by majesty, and then so he's like he's playing like five or six regular tournaments year now. And that's where again, I'm, I'm fully aware that like maybe I'm just biased on this because I worked at the tour for a long time. But yeah, it's it's these events like just feel like they're turning into wraps or something. It's really weird if to from a casual fans perspective, and maybe it's always been like that I was gonna say, I think PGA tour events week to week are like a local event. It's for. Local people, it's for you to come out or stop, except for its main ended on, like big ass TV contracts. Well, that's different attending an event talking about a major is like a world lying for total travel. And there those events are not meant for you to be able to follow people, I tell people this Ryder cups, like get a spot where you can see a Jumbotron you could see the other action, and you can watch everybody come through do not try to follow a group. You can't do it at majors. Don't try to follow group because there's so many people when you have the US runs one huge large men's professional event, every year, they're going to try to make a shitload of money off of it, and they do, so they have a ton of hospitality. They have also means demand. Yeah. Yeah. DJ's point to where like this travelling road show that is that the tour like it doesn't it's not really engendering that same demand. And then when they when they when they pump up Tigers, the main draw and tiger shows up five times a year, six times a year, like that, that really hurts products. That's kind of what I'm getting is it seems like both the majors and the regular tour events are like built on the same model. Right. It's TV contracts. It's, it's presenting sponsors or in the majors perspective, it's presenting sponsors of Rolex and the people we saw this week. But. When, when they're those events are getting so fundamentally different from a casual fan interest perspective, like man, I don't really know how you solve that. And I don't know what that looks like in the future is not rooting for chaos. I'm not rooting for these events to become irrelevant. But it's like how do you watch the US open at Pebble Beach, as a casual fan, and then get jacked up for like the three m or the, you know, the Quicken Loans in Detroit, and I'm going to watch events, and I'm going to be psyched about it, but it just seems like more and more like they're going to be so dependent on really hard core offense to support those events from a TV perspective, especially as things move you move into like a new TV contract and streaming and streaming services and people paying subscriptions. And that kind of stuff I don't know. Anyway, it's a whole other topic. But I was blown away at the infrastructure in the footprint and just the spectacle that major championship is because it's it is wild man. And so to see in. Did you notice it being very, very stark even relation to say the PGA championship now I think it's probably similar. I mean, the PGA is a big deal, like it's there's a lot of big footprint. There's well but I think what really drove home was just. You know it's so easy to sit in and be like God. This place should host a major. They take the US open here here here, like there's twenty places in the country that can legitimately hostess US Open. It's nuts. The amount of parking in hospitality, and all that stuff. It's just it's a good reminder in something to, to think about is casually thrown stuff around. The other thing was pebble like is so much more subtle than I think I ever realized like seeing it up close and actually like looking at a critical, I just from like a major championship perspective. You start to look at. I think a lot of people saw the green. Oh, god. The balls are spinning back on the greens. Like this is bullshit. So US open. But then you look at, like taking looking Randy, you take a whole, like number four is a perfect example, and people oh my God like these balls are spinning off the front of the green. It's like that green is tilted like thirty degrees from back to front, and the fairways, tilted, like thirty degrees. So talking to some players about this. It's like when. In that fair, you're freaking out because, you know, you're on an uphill. I to a green that's back to front and controlling the spin is half the battle. It's not like this is what I'm saying where you just make these rock-hard that's not the challenge. The challenge is supposed to be things. Exactly like that. And so I just saw a lot of stuff like that whole, like, number three where you basically whole like, number three where basically, you're sitting on a drawl lie. And to get to a lot of those pins like you have to hit a fade. There's just little things like that, that even are hard to come out in the broadcast. Even when you have all the time in the world and you have someone like you'll hands on like you still can't capture all that stuff. So just. Yeah. I don't know both. I'm both saying don't go to major because there's too many people, you can't say anything, and definitely go to a major because there's stuff you can't see on TV for sure. I think almost any golf course like going in person like when I went to Firestone for the first time I was like, oh, dude this looks way different than it does on TV doesn't make for an any better viewing experience on TV. But having that appreciation for like, oh, there's like lane movement out here that looks TV flattens, everything there were a couple of really good pictures this week of tiger guys hitting shots like in nine fairway showing death of the beach back there and was like do that, even that's what the drone shots were. So key showing the elevation change on the seventh hole. How many times have we seen that whole? I forget how much downhill that is. So that wrap around view, from the ocean showing how much higher that seventy is, is really. And that's kind of some that like you're talking about that nuance to the discussion we had about pebble being overrated before the event. I think I have even more appreciation for the golf course again as a major championship venue. Now, I think. A lot of our discussion was more based on it being course that is the other fifty one weeks of the year. Just people pay a ton of money to play that I think there are still a ton of improvements. They could make it for that to be a better experience than like whatever the fifth ranked course in the world right now. That's a separate conversation for watching it, tournament, there that was fucking awesome. That was great. Like I was tremendous. I don't have a ton of ton of criticism on that front. And I think that's where things as simple as like the brownie points segments. I know we, we don't get enough of we harp on this, how these are a lot. But something like that is such a perfect indicator where CBS like they'll not supposed to that. Word other now are will use like a graphic there. You know what people need is a graphic that this is look at look at this things moving. And now we're gonna have an arrow that comes over the over the hill, and it's gonna show you thirty four feet from top to bottom. Sometimes. Just fucking beach ball and show me how much it rolls down the hill like that. I'd be like whoa downhill that is. That's crazy in folks, deejays retirement. He's like the school administrator retired and took the pension come back. It's disgusting. Very discussing. I have a couple of lightning going to be doing cameos Brett Farr. Double dipping. That you guys they'll respect by price any cat, by the way, people were speculating these hurt. His back was all messed up speculated that he died. I don't have a lot to add on the cat. The weather was he was making an excuse for the cold weather. It was not good for him for the first time in my life, I have not maybe for the first time in my life, but definitely since the first time since all the scandal and the real bottoming out of the cat. I I've hit this point now since he won the master's where you watch him at the PGA to where it's like, you know what's, not as weak whatever. That's all right. Let's show some other guys everything feels like gravy now. Whereas it used to be like God show every shot, what's he doing? Why are we watching tiger? Now, Mike, whatever it's okay and kept kind of fills the void. Yeah. It'll totally in that like, you know he's he's the guy right now. So I don't know if the casual fan feels like that, but I think back then, like looking at twenty fourteen twenty fifteen even before that twenty twelve twenty seven where there's injuries and he's playing really good. And then he's out now. He's hurt. And now he's okay. Like we've had this long stretch where he's just, he's just been like readily available to go play golf. And it's like, yeah, we, we don't need to. Shoot seventy three that's. Treat them good today on that. Good. Yeah, it was appropriate. Matt Wallace t twelve Matt Wallace wolves mad. I thought this is one of his favorite in the world, picking on poor Vert lung at Augusta couple years ago, the PGA are the PGA. That's call them. Michael, what he made it as big as not only did he call Mike, let shocked. Let's go ahead. Now that was Ed. Wallis. Sixty minutes the cut over the verdict, clearly very excited to call this tape delayed, as thank you, Jim. This is Mike Wallace. Steps up and makes you keep burns name out of your mouth say now all he does it for every player, whatever they like I see. This is Greg Woodley coming. Say Matt Wallace t twelve having a pretty good year on the heels of really good your last year. Really, really good your last year, he's going to be popping in the top twenty in the world here, the wins once or twice more. He could be the news. Wanted to just get thing to put on the radio, but a little calendar, reminder there Zander. How about Zander, Randy ah? You're all over that one straight US opens, you look. He's finished sixth fifth and now third. Is he the controls years? Yeah. He seems like a very unless you tell you to get set up. Without looking without looking at the anything online. How many guys are what, what are the guys that shot under par every round this week? That's always my favorite. I know one because the broadcast was Jon Rahm. Yep. And the other two are willing to give okay? Okay. It's only three when I started to ask it, I thought it was shop Shafi was one of them, but he was not. But. I thought quiet t- three for him. I thought mad Fitzpatrick had a good week expect into play. Well there and he did. Adam Scott has been contending his balls off lately. It seems like he is in contention all the time without really being a threat to win. He just always seems like he's on the other side of the Gulf. Here's here's Scott. Putting for birdie opinion for fifteen feet. He's playing the north course today, see what he's doing Joe. He's leaving the pit in on this. Yeah. And then they come inevitably they come back, like forty five minutes later, you see miss eighteen inch, oh, it's just not as wing. Shallots Nate Lashley finished one under par for the week hung around. I think people were expecting him to get vaporized a little bit Aaron wise, bounced back today after seventy eight or seventy nine yesterday. Can we talk about the speed Gretler exchange? I know we talked about it on the live show, but I missed I missed all this as well. So speed hits t shot on the eighth hole. The Thursday or Friday, one of those is it was Thursday. He it's his teeshot in the water on a goes over the cliff long long. And then he hits a second his third drops as third shot over the green. And then, like with the with the FOX camera got right there. Like almost like he turns to the cameraman to say this not even Gretler breaking the fourth wall. He's like I shot two shots to perfect shots. Mike, you got me in the water off the tee and another one long there. And it was and then Twitter melted down on that one, which I was partially responsible. I, I try to be responsible and said, hey guys, not gonna have any Mike and. Aren't gonna have any comment at this time? And then I said, you know, this really chaps my ass like I couldn't I couldn't sit silent and you can't sleep on that. No. I think it's just because he does all the we stuff all the time. Yeah. I just the chirpiness has gotten to the point where he's just it's tough to watch, and then the rake happened the following day, which I don't know, who's putting a rake up at the top of the phone. The rake things are totally separate thing. I don't ever blaming griller for the rate. I don't hit it. He was very, very clearly blaming Gretler for what happened on eight which to me, like, like Gretler tried to talk him. Like he said, I, I like one less than this and speed hit, which we, we don't know if he hit one more than griller had suggested. We don't know what he had in his hand. It wasn't like no, I'm hitting one more. And then going on. I think that would just seemed so like, like seems so removed from it. He seems so emotionally detached from the decision making the conversation to where it's like he just needed somebody to blame on the back end, and that's fine. And maybe that's part of their relationship had a bunch people reach out and say this isn't like this is nothing like if this was bad. Yeah. I get it like it's. Yes. Guys like those guys don't don't stand up for the round and say, we, we team. I'm we, you know, so Victor Deuba son. I think it kind of the conclusion, we got to was like is very clear that speech should take responsibility for all the decisions being made and at the same time, like Gretler should probably probably would mitt that he made a mistake there, he should not have had a club in his hand that could have got in the water off this, and we're going to have our sit down this week and we're going to talk. And I thought that we'll bardwell friend of the program, eight fantastic. Tweet about Jordan's beef. And basically, this is just a veiled availed shot at bitching at the caddies and all that stuff. I said, I fancied myself, an intellectually consistent person, I've always liked Jordan speech, but disliked Bubba Watson. I'm beginning to feel intellectually inconsistent, which is pretty fair. That's like says anything people like fuck. This guy, what's deal. I saw some that do then that you'd have been all over, you know what? Yes. That's that's. Yeah. It's not great winds about everything else. But I can't stand to see him and him and griller. I know you know, that's like the one in this crazy world talking to talking to some of the guys who were who were there, like falling that group. They're like, you know, it's really weird being like in the vicinity. And this is where one of the real unique things about golf is, you know, it's so quiet out there, all the time that when somebody does yell something, it's just like a vicious headshot, like everybody hears it. And so it's really quiet after shot, you know, there's people are just kind of milling about and someone will just yell like. Griller you know, and you know that like everybody heard it everybody's thinking about it. Everybody's like people think that we're fighting and now like they're going to analyze everything we do thing. Now it's thing so yeah. Apparently that was that was really thick in the air out there, which is kind of fun. All right. So we're like an hour and twenty minutes in here. I do want to give a shout out to the gun, Canadian tour MacKenzie, Tori. Excuse me shot. Fifty nine today. To have everyone. Everyone out Charlie and savannah. Nobody will understand what that means. Except for Charlie. Maybe one other person. All right. Thanks, everybody. For tune in this week, major weeks are a lot of fun things.

HR 1: Kenley Jansen Blew it!

"Back all right so john. The only place. I get masters. Scores is for mason and ireland. So please please us in what has happened down. At the holiest place in golf. Well what the main thing that's happened is the guy took with the very first pick in the master's draft. Yup bryson cambo might not make the cut really. He's tried to overpower the workings. Three over rory mcelroy's four over. Dustin johnson is to over the hill. Things matt a little about me. What about you you michael. Even par michael thompsons even par. Right there's a professional golfer mason michael thompson. He's from new zealand right mike. No he's american. He is even par right and in the clubhouse this we here but he doesn't spell it proper way spells it the wrong way the wrong way. There are three guys tied at the top cat. Ryan harman a decky. Matsuyama and i took him. He's a jerk but he's my jerk. Patrick reed three hundred seventeen. I like his passion for evidence that he's a fill us in on the jerk. Recruit i just want you both to while we're doing the show today to google patrick reed jerk and watch the cavalcade of stories. That will come forward about patrick. Green the way plays away treats people off the course both most of the stories. We'll be the way he treats people off. The course he was kicked off his college. Golf team for cheating. He cheats lot while he tour. All the other players have accused him of cheating. He doesn't care he doesn't speak to his own family. No there is that right. He doesn't speak to mason. He doesn't speak too if somebody hangs up the phone on he had done with them. I still have not gotten a callback. I somebody hung up from like. I'm not calling you back. Is the michael corley. Own of pro golf. He will slam the door. In case face when mcrae's him yeah she does. That k does not deserve that. Never he ever do wrong. It okay. we're talking about the the actually part two k. Godfather part one is when the door closes on k. She she do something. Watch partout last night. It's part to k. She told people that she had a miscarriage. Pucci really yeah aborted the baby on her own because she didn't and she didn't want to tell michael. Yeah child into a life of crime. Yeah but i mean. Michael doesn't bring the whole family into their life of crime means something. She knew what she got into a she fell in love with him in meriden true they pay by the weight and now we all know you can really play golf. You're a ten handicapper. Some now she can even break seventy five eighty. What would you shoot and this setup on the master's and what mason shoot and the setup in a master's what our michael janney playing from these tea. I drink. I don't think i bring hundred. Well i probably shoot. Well see an average of six on every hole that would be fifty. Four hundred and eight with michael mason. Break two hundred. No probably not i in this day. Michael i've even taken golf lessons. I don't even have clubs yet. How would you must've hit golf balls. You must play before. At least once. Right he played three holes with my place. Ring hosts play three golf one. Michael here's the thing. When i was a kid. There were two kinds of kids right. There were kids whose families belong to the country club and then there was us in those country club kids. They played tennis. They played golf. None of us did it was a those were rich kids. But did you have a public caution to play on. There was a public course with clubs. Rent claudette michael. It had a windmill and a clowns. It was a very classy operation. Yeah i know how people are fascinated by this experiment. We're doing because first of all they don't believe me when i say they say mason's never play golf and i say he's never played eighteen holes in his life abc correct would that is true right base and they have the people that meet me. Say well you're giving them way too. Many strokes fifty three strokes because way too many and then the other people like michael say. Oh you've got him. He won't come within fifty strokes view. I see it. It'll be interesting to see what happens when we okay. Let's go eighteen holes mesa's going to swing and miss at least no ice on each hole by giving me credit for for practicing. I've just enrolled in the pen. Mar golf academy. So that's thirty. That's thirty six holes right thirty six strokes right there. He's not even going to touch the ball. Yeah trust me. I'm going to be good enough to win this match right and not. I'm not going to be a great golfer right. But i'm going to be good to know that you have to count those strokes adrift accountable. Yes swinging stroke. Ryan hit it like you miss very common. The swing in the mid stroke. You see all the time michael i. Are you a little bit of an apology. You called it the other day during the lakers. Or we're going to get to the dodgers second but michael. You called the laker game when you said hey ireland all these guys coming off. The bench are going to get suspended in this fight. And i thought that's what david stern used to do. Silver is more lenient and sure enough today. Three players suspended for coming off the bench. And i think the guys. I think the guys guys forgotten about that rule because we haven't seen in so long. It costs fred. Van bleat one hundred and forty six thousand dollars one hundred forty thousand. He was in street clothes. He wasn't even playing cost. T h t. He just took ten thousand six hundred. Four hundred sixty nine dollars. Mason just burned this now. Why isn't it that kind of money to lose. It makes one point seven years. We can afford ten. Yeah we'll make that mistake again. Allies dollars means a lot to somebody. That makes a buck seventy a year. Here's the final verdict on that. Fight the other night which really never to what i would call. It was a skirmish. Og on an ob technical. Foul ejected find thirty thousand dollars for initiating. The incident feels writing for the schreuder wrestling drop. Yes mantras herald. And i'm still not exactly sure. Why mantras herald is getting so punishment. But they hit him again today. Twenty thousand dollars for aggressively air. Guyane altercation their guy. Guyana always gets the worst man. Ejections for deondraye bembry fred vanfleet. And taylor horton tekere all for leaving the bench to join a fight and michael. I thought they had kind of looked the other way on that rule. But i guess not. Because you can't do that. Yeah i guess that's still stands though strict about that because they don't want guys coming in making it escalate to you know big baseball type brawl guys warning in from the bullpen. No to to do nothing. Does the baseball baseball institute that matiur mr baseball. Purists in is part of the game really part of the guy the score. I mean that's to me and no no punches ever get thrown. Nobody gets her people get jacked. Tell that to don zimmer I mean there are exceptions to the rule in your pointing out a an exception. But i mean for the most part guys. Just come out of the dugout stand around yet. But that could that could possibly escalate these because one guy pushes one guy then he turns and retaliates but if you saw told everybody stand the dugout staying bull and just have the guys on the field get involved with like clean it up. Yeah i i don't think any i mean you're. This is a problem and solution in search of a problem. It's not really a problem right now. Yeah i saw yesterday afternoon. Michael i don you. You probably weren't listening to the show. I was riding my bike and smoking a cuban nice. That's an image so kenley jansen was coming into a A two to a two one ballgame to one lead for the dodgers. And i was very very excited because i thought you were the only one. We are getting a kenley jansen. Save right here right now. He did not pitch well. He did not pitch well. And i want before we comment on this. I want to hear what dave roberts had to say about it. Dave roberts after yesterday's game here he is on kenley outing command. You know. that's just uncharacteristic revenue up the command like that. There was this fires there. Some spider fastballs. doesn't happen. So we'll digit is what's wrong with kenley. I think there's a couple things. I i think that honestly the commanding of the baseball. Which when you know that he's right does that. There's not balls that phone into the urge or really missing a lot of side and the characteristics crew characteristics also. I think that's good but it just just remained the baseball again and the last thing here he is on didn't kenley. Have these problems last season. I mean this is really good. So yeah i ours. My talk about spree is not really the result about what i see is far as with kinley particularly baseball. I thought he did jotted spring where these last two nights. It just didn't seem like commended like we secrets so kenley. Jansen has a five out. Save on saturday and look very very good. He had a. It wasn't a safe situation. But on sunday he closed out a five one win and then struggles and winds up blowing the save yesterday a in oakland against the as by the dodgers have their home opener tomorrow. If you're lucky enough to have a ticket whoo back at a ball game live so john. I still believe dave. Roberts goes back to kenley jansen. I am not wavering. At all in my support and part of it is. I don't see another good option. Just looking at their bullpen right. Now i don't see another clear. Closer option with the exception of you could make a case for corey canabal. Who was once a closer for the milwaukee brewers and gave them a cleaning yesterday already done. I was just laying out the case. Yeah right yeah are. Are you ready to start. Yes okay go ahead startle. I wanted to appeal to your sense of objectivity what you to look at this objectively. Okay i'm gonna give you some facts. Kenley jansen ziara in the postseason last year when the dodgers won the world series was five point one four blue one. Save in three chances by the way. Let me just let me add to your. You're going to continue to talk. His blown more saves than any reliever in the world series in history. Nobody has blown more world series saves than kenley jansen. That helps her case. You like to cite that. Last year. he had eleven saves and thirteen chances. My argument is you can't trust him anymore. In twenty nine hundred eighteen he blew eight saves and had a three point seventy. Ra in two thousand eighteen. He blew four saves and had an area over three. Yeah the lord saves ye also blew two saves in five chances in the postseason. He's been the dodger closer for ten years. It's over so you tweeted that you still believe kenley. Jansen is gonna save thirty five dooms. The dodgers got a proposal for you. Because i'm already got ten thousand dollars on this. okay. I'm gonna put a major bet on this. I don't know if either one of these will cash in are okay if kenley jansen has thirty five saves for the dodgers this year. Yep i will give you fifty thousand dollars of my mythical money no way if if kenley jansen is not on the dodgers roster when the postseason starts you give me fifty thousand. I'll take that in. A second can like which one of us has a better chance of winning that. Bet i think. Mace kelly will be there on the postseason roster. He might not be closer. Thirty-five saves no. He won't have thirty five. See these dead. Neither one of us would kevin. But yeah i mean i'm looking at the save forty four thirty six forty seven forty one thirty eight. I mean the guy guy saves games your hand. Here's part of stem part of it is. There are so many regular season games and they don't have a clear other option they could go to enable by the way. A lot of people are go to brazil gratitude. Greider all does not have closer stuff. Do you have against training. I love try. And so what's the toughest job. I've done this before. But what's the toughest job bullpen. It's to come in in the seventh inning with a runner on and one out. That's the that's the job toughest job is that guy. That's why i want blake trying to. That's the most important role. The most important role is at not closer right but leave him in if he comes in in that situation and he gets two outs. Let him pitch the teachers. The eighth let him pitch the night. What do you think they did last year with areas in the in the game decide right. They're not. They're not gonna do that this year. They're not and by the way they made the postseason but they're not gonna do the regular season. I think it's a long haul. And i think kenley is going to be okay. I seventy seven. that's this guy. Eight seven seven seven ten. Espn eight seven seven. Seven ten espn. Also we'll let you know that lindsey's brother. Stephen is live from augusta about twenty minutes. From right now really. So we've got a live report from. Stephen fulton from augusta masters correspondent. Wait till you hear what he has to say about it john. You're really going to be jealous. This weird to go to a masters your top pick justin. Thomas who i thought was going to win is also three over just like to shampoo. Are your pick your topic in my top. Pick me not even make the cut cut. It's still early. it's still early. What's happened to worry. Mcelroy's game john hold on leg. Maury mcelroy's game michael and that's a great tease coming up next. The latest on rory mcilroy. Well i mean he's supposed to be the next typer. The very latest kenley. What do you do with the problem. Like kenley eight. Seven seven seven ten. Espn the problem like mason ireland. Seven ten espn again. Chris miles it just to embarrass all of us daily. Sorry about lindsay sorry. Nobody told me there would be math. That was tricky. That was very tricky. We hired. We did not tell her that she had to have maths exactly. I'm don't math but don't forget it is masters week. We're giving away one hundred dollars gift card to roger gulf shops every day this week we will do it next hour. Swing by roger done. Golf shops and get custom fit today and shop them online. Worldwide golf shops dot com all right so made an impassioned plea on behalf of kenley jansen and let me just say one thing about kenley. I've had a chance to be around kenley from what i was doing. Locker room for sports net super great dude like really really great guy a guy that if you meet you would wind up rooting for without question and i still go back to a spring. John i go back to a spring in which he had a one. Two three era in seven and a third innings. Thirteen strikeouts and two walks. He's walking too many guys. Now that's the problem in the last couple of days. You can't trust him. He doesn't he's not reliable and it's totally predictable to somebody who is objectively looking this. You've got this thing that maybe that maybe it's personal with you. you think. Because he's a great guy that he's going to succeed. It hasn't been the do with the fact he's a great guy can't pitch anymore Here's mike and monrovia. Hey mike you're on seven ten. espn gentleman. i agree with you. John i mean it can read it on his face mean every time you know he gives a even a deep five all he has look space like. Oh my gosh But the bottom line is too. I think we're we're not taking into account his plays like will smith. I love way every day. Yeah the guy catches not in swat catches in a left knee down. And he's unable to make a play on a while pitch to his right side. That is totally stoppable. But he didn't make the stuff the run scored so we can go back to that run as well but i think the bottom line is mckinley. The guy just doesn't have commandments. Riches he loses his bitches. All these things add up and you know it's going to cost us games and it hasn't the make up the pitching tonight. I'm saying i'm saying about blake. Pitching the ninth is much easier than pitching the seventh with two runners on but that's the high leverage position but at least you have a chance to come back if kinley blows the game in the seventh you know. You don't have any chance to come back when he blows the game in the ninth. Yeah i don't want kenley in the seventh. I don't i don't want to period and he's been a great time. I wanna by the way react to a lot of people are saying on twitter. Same brister greider. All brazil has had thirteen strikeouts in twenty three innings last year. He is not a strikeout guy. And you need a power strikeout guy to be your closer. Although he throws one hundred miles an hour he does and yet for some reason pitches to contact and pitching to contact. We'll try and throws a one hundred mile an hour sinker correct and he got dinged up the other night. Yeah i i would rather see anybody out there then kenley. it's a regardless closest. The guy that's closest is cory canabal can able has thrown in three games now two and a third innings three strikeouts. One walk. he's the closest thing to closer numbers on the staff. I would argue. Victor gonzalez could also be used in closer situation. Anybody but kenley. Here's ritchie in chatsworth. Hey richie you're on seventeen. Espn good going on. What do you think. Richie high man. Here's my take a look. It's a long season like may said so. I do think that kenley have a shot getting thirty or thirty five days. But he's not my guy for the ninth inning. I would go with training. And as far as having a power pitcher in the ninth the yankees might years and years with mariano rivera really not being a power pitcher and getting strikeout. He had that cut fastball. That he would get a lot of guys ground out on. So i don't think we need to strike out guy in the ninth but me personally. I can lease not. He's not the guy for us. I would go with blake training. I feel like he's got more success. And as far as seventh-inning. I mean we can find somebody else to fill that. All we've got a lotta arms. I would just go with training the night. But i do still think since i know robert. You're gonna use them. He will get those thirty five days. Yeah thank you very much see. That's right over. One hundred and sixty two kenley is going to get those safes. He is gonna get those safes. He's not going to get everyone necessarily and you know this was a case where he pitched on back to back days he may not pitch on back to back days anymore but he's still going to get his sheriff safes. It's a performance based business. He doesn't perform anymore. You just can't keep trotting him out there if the rest of the team doesn't trust him and i think that's where you're at now. The rest of the team doesn't trust him. So i mean you gotta you gotta be put out there to get those saves and i just don't think he is going to go back out there right. I mean yeah this. Wiki will. But i think in a month dave roberts has to say look the proof in the pudding. This guy can't pitch. You don't want to see what's interesting. This is something i noticed. The dodgers who i think led baseball in home runs last year. Have seven so far this year and as it turns out they've done all sorts of research studies already on the baseball and they're saying the baseball is traveling on average fifteen feet less than it did last year. So this experiment of deadening the baseball and keeping the ball in the park is officially underway. And as i remember you don't like that. I think they should have as many homeless possible by the way i know they officially seven but they really have eight because bellinger hit went out and they that stupid base running rule costumer homerun argue they. They actually have seven because one was inside the parker right. Make that case. But but in any event they're not hitting with the power that i expected them to right out of the box and i think it is the deadening of the baseball which i think is really really good for the game. I've already seen a suicide squeeze this year. I've seen teams play small ball because the ball is not automatically going to leave the yard. I saw a hit and run. That's something you don't see very often a major league. Baseball hasn't happened. While i think if we get to the point where the ball stays in the yard more often. We're gonna wind up with more action in the game as opposed to that stationary station to station baseball. Sit back either. Strike out or hit a home run in the last couple years. More action is better for the game. Here's adam in new york. Hey adam you're on seven ten. Espn hi guys. How're you doing. Good good so. I have a feeling like you. Guys are both actually adding sentimental feelings about both kenley and marcus. All i think less so mark john but i obviously wanted to pay it forward so pow but i think you're both kind of off on both sides you want. You want them to succeed. But you don't know like if they've still got the stuff i think obviously with the mark thing it's kind of like obviously we have a replacement for him or to replace him and kenley. It's less obvious. So i'm just so you guys are arguing the same things but for different people. Yeah that's i think that's a really good point. Lead marcus all. I think also having a terrible year. Here's the difference. Marcus never out there when the game is on the line he's not in the closing line-up kenley jansen close if they wanna pitch kenley jansen in the fifth sixth seventh inning. Go ahead with the game on the line. You can't trust him and he's to is too much heritage. She's too much history. I mean the guy might go to the hall of fame. You can't disrespect him by throwing him out there in the bullpen and never pitching him. That's why i think there's a chance he won't be on the roster in the postseason because you can't disrespect them if you're not gonna use them kenley jansen being asked to close games marcus. All isn't i'm not going to write them off after three two-thirds innings now you might after three and two. I'm writing them off after twenty. Eight twenty nine thousand nine hundred and postseason in twenty twenty. That was disaster. That had a great regular season at eight hundred. Sixty two game season at a great regular season. Eleven thirteen and save option. You tape that okay. I just don't trust the guy. And i think most dodger fans don't well time will tell time will tell when kenley gets to save tomorrow against the nationals in the home opener that'll shut some people up for a while i coming up next week. We've been trying to get this guy on the show for a very very long time. And finally we've been able to do it. Stephen fulton who is a distinguished gulf reporter has covered golf for many. Many years is actually at augusta. Also happens to be lindsay's brother. Stephen fulton will join us coming up. Don't forget fasttrack at one. Fifty five mason ireland seven ten espn. I'd he's going to join us here in a second. This is a very funny. Dm i just got. I hung a poster of kenley jansen on bedroom door and now it won't close there. It goes a good one. Very much to bruce regis for that earlier in the show. Michael ask me what has happened to rory mcilroy. Who's like favorite golfer from ireland. Actually know the answer. Mcelroy has admitted that he played around with the shambo yup and he got jealous of how hard shambo swings. And how far the ball so roy. He's been trying to copy shambo swing and he can't do it and now he's all messed. That's what i need to swing doctor. I need to rebuild my swing. I think from the ground up. What do you guys think i doctor. I think he'd take the letters re often the build your if he put the word out there a lot of golf pros the volunteer work with you. I know it's it's out the venice mesa gmail.com especially if you're in venice. Santa monica culver. City that area island. You know golf. What would what's the best piece of advice you could give. Mesa gets ready to Address the ball swing. Slow swing slow. But if he's being slow the ball only go eighty yards. I mean you. To go and steady wins this race learning at a swing michael. Don't you think the biggest mistake people make is they try and swing to heart to try to kill the ball right. It's a smooth. We gotta swing hard but swing. Smoothness swing smith don. Don't try to put both cheeks into it but one chic when it got it got. It is lindsay's brother gonna flag on us. We're waiting on them. Okay you know was a very tough bookie yeah. The he doesn't have a phone there. They have to call from a courtesy phone. They don't let you have your cell phones in there so we'd when you walk in they take your cell phone. Oh yeah you're not allowed to have your phones in their way. Yeah yeah they. They will pat you down in search you for them. If they catch you with one you'll now that would probably keep you from going. Wouldn't it well. All the rich people would keep me from going But yeah not anymore. You've got ordinary people out. There now can get if you can get tickets to augusta. I hate that whole attitude about augusta. I just i hate hoity toity. Oh it's holy. It's the the sixty round of golf dogwoods. It is kind of cool to play on with a bunch of warriors. And he said it is all that is hyped up to be. He said not even a blade of grass is out of place. Well well we got a minute. Who follow me here. Twenty years ago today tiger woods won the master's completing the tiger slam. Do you have that. They're hitting streak. The stirred at the pebble. Beach replaced spurt. Some kind of new configuration of a slam stirred the thing. Slimness started coming saint. Saint louis augusta there. It is as it perfect speed perfect line. Tiger has his slam something. I never would ever see rather that anyone could ever do. The greatest feed. I've ever known in all sports. That is Four consecutive majors ending with the masters michael. Other people had achieved the grand slam before bobby jones. But that doesn't count because i was segregated area Bobby jones did it. Yeah but taga did it in all. It's all inclusive in ken. Venturi era not check not just byron nelson just nicklaus never did it. Palmanova data just tiger and bobby jones. I believe that's it and It's not a tiger slam. It is the slam. Because it's four in a row serena same so what. It's four zero. Four inroads a slam to serena. Did the same thing at ten is too and they said that's not a grand slam grand slam replied definition. Isn't that the deficit of grants internal war. One year does the same and the rule book. It says if you went four in a row. That's a slam hot. Did he win four and rome as he did the same. See so what. Why do you like. Oh i the traditional slam. Is you win four majors in the same year. Where's that written in the gulf rule books. I don't know michael because it's not in front of me. That's why john is. Is that a grand slam or no. I think calling it the tiger slam the way to go. Yeah i think that when you say grand slam people think there's four majors and every calendar year. They would think you won all four in a calendar. He did one foreign within a year here but not in the same you guys just get into makes it any less impressive o. It's still unbelievably impressive. It is still nobody seen it happen. It's just not. It's not the grand slam. We we forget how great you remember the one. The ireland's tiger won seven tournaments in a row. Remember that year. You know how crazy that is. This even say oh yeah. He wants seven tournaments in a row. So one time i get to play golf with tour pro all right. It was an idaho. Yup and a guy named andrew. Magee works for the golf channel. Great guy and i said to andrew magee get. Hey who's the best putter on tour. And he looked at me he goes tiger and so i can save us all time. He's the best driver on tour. He's the best iron player on tour. He's a short game player. The best long game player. He's the best at everything so don't ask me anymore. Yeah he's the greatest golfer. Tiger is okay and i think online right now is as golf journalist. Stephen fulton stephen thank you so much for dot. How are you going right. Yes stephen first of all. How did you get tickets to the master's my brother-in-law he works for lift one Joe phelan. he's really nice guy and Kind of last minute and we're out and he'll head on vacation he's like. Hey i think. I got a extra tickets thursday. You guys want to go while like Yeah so you've never been to. The masters do classify yourself as a golf then. Yes definitely do you golf yourself. Yes all the time. I i try to at least okay good. So what's what's the environment like inside. I know the attendances kept to a lower number. What's it like inside so my i. I mean it is awesome here. I mean we've been able to walk up and phil and i mean everyone and walkup right up right up to where they drive from no problem. I mean any view we want any. You know we we've been We've been at eleven and twelve a lot. It's just there's no one here. I mean and i keep asking. He's been here before and he's like this is unheard at like he's usually we're twenty thirty rose d. period of at least ten rows of chairs. He's like this is hard. Oh this is crazy. So i mean i. I'm spoiled right now. I feel like being a first time coming here. I mean we're able to just go up and see any golfer. Hits pretty cool. We always on tv. That television doesn't do it. Justice an hour hilly the courses how how hilly is that course that is a hundred percent correct because i watch it all the time and like you know even playing it on like tiger woods or whatever and i'm like holy you here and you're like wow. These is so haley it is you know extremely difficult and you just you know they're hitting it and you just like the tv does not do justice for sure. Hey steven we're talking to stephen lindsay's brother who's lucky enough to be at the masters at augusta right now. Where they're playing stephen. Is it true they take your cell phone. Did they confiscate your cell phone when you came into the par to the course you we. We just left it in the car. You just can't bring it in. They have to go through a metal detector and all they you know pat you down and stuff so you can't bring anything in. It is true the food is all super cheap. Like really affordable. It is amazing. I mean i had like three or four beers. We have like three or four sandwiches. I think it was like twenty three dollars. So it's all the sandwiches or two to three dollars beers to three dollars it's cheap so Who have you followed. Who who looks good. I honestly everyone. I mean we've if fall. I mean jonah ram phil coming up right now. we're following dustin for a little bit. I mean everyone's looking good. There's been some good. You know good shots and we saw a couple a number twelve we saw a pretty crappy slice. Slice it over the fairway. My one brother she goes. Why is he laying on a par three and we're like he wasn't trying to lay up there. Have you seen the bryson shambo tee off and describe what it's like because he is the ball a million miles. What's it like. The bucs saw him tee off. I mean he he just looks just try. They gave me. He's just he looks like one of those guys from the long long drive competition. He's just trying to like smash it. I mean he's just to see him putting everything into it all right so last thing for me stephen. A you know we've been working with your sister now for over a year.

Who was met at home plate. Not only by every member of the brave. But by his father and mother as aaron circle of ages the dodgers on the infield chuck of hand and. That was a memorable moment. Aaron is being mobbed by photographers is holding his right hand. A high in the air and for the first time in a long time that poker face of iron show is that tremendous rain and relief of what it positive been like to live with for the past several months. There is the great vin scully on the call. That is the record breaking home. Run number seventeen for henry. Earn forty seven number seven days ago. Today i mean seven fifteenth seven fifteen. Seventeen seventeen. I want you to interpret eight an instagram post for me. I'm good at this all right. It's a picture of lebron and anthony davis yup in street clothes sitting on a scores table plotting like cheering on their team. So it's lebron. Ad and lebron captions this. He put just posted this on instagram. The weatherman says the weather is changing soon and it predicts a thunderstorm. Thunder is coming folks. Prepare and take proper caution and measures to stay safe. Wow isn't he hitting michael that they're about to come back that's obvious hindi or close and could be back. Maybe after this road trip the weather will change soon. The thunder is coming. Speaking of amanda. Are you on. Yeah by the way. I wanted to mention something. Yes i am here. Getting pictures of michael thomas. He's dressed like a rick. James back appreciate this. Amanda what are you doing to me. i think i look good way. I agree amid you. Have you have crazy pants like that. And i always compliment you on okay. You know but i'm sorry. I was literally in my office with the door. Shut and i look up. And i'm like who is walking by my office in these pants and so after i was done with my phone call i you know i went and i started walking around and there's not a lot of people here so i peeked my head through the window in the studio and i'm like oh my gosh it's michael like i would have never expected it. I like those telephone. Zuma's yeah they're like. I'm going to post a picture on my instagram. They're like zebra print white zebra and the best part though that because he's so tall he had to have extra frat fabric added to the bottom. So there's a scene at the bottom of each leg with an extra piece of fabric done. This was the style when i used to go to golds gym. They'll michael. I know that you've never paid for a pair of pants in your life. So who gave you the no. I looked up online. Because i i miss my subas when i was all my moves. I lost all my zuma's mace and these are the most comfortable pants. A man can wear a mouth and they look great. They looked they. Amanda of your guy in these you go out with him. Oh no no chance. Why i mean i would think i would say. Do you need directions. Circus michael honestly. I'm surprised that julie hasn't divorced you over those pants. I mean julie doesn't know he's well. She's she's upset. She asked me anybody at work. So you in those. She asked me. They know what you should wear. You should wear one of those Big clown wigs big knows. That would go good with those. Here's a question with fans coming back to the staple center starting with the celtics games. Yeah are you going to dress better. Know what this lance. Somebody sees us where we broadcast from right. They're not going to be able to buy us fans right next to us now but this may be a couple of hundred so now for me to have to dress up like a normal human being. I'll have be at least five thousand people in there. Yeah and what are we going to start. What do we know what. We're starting with on the fifteenth. I heard ten percent. What's ten percent one thousand nine hundred. Nineteen hundred yeah by the way you know sandcastle said yesterday. He anticipates a full dodger stadium by june the fifteenth. Yeah so this thing is moving really really fast. Now they're definitely going to fans in there for the for the playoffs and probably a greater number. I would think now this afternoon at three thirty g bus on a spectrum the spectrum access sports matter what are what are we call that channel spectrum yup yup spectrum sports on and she's going to make a big announcement. We don't know exactly what that is but we know she's going to make an announcement on spectrum at three thirty and michael thompson. And alan sleep with spock and the job will definitely have that report on exactly what genie says. I wonder if they're gonna do. And i don't think they've made an official announcement if they're going to raise the banner on the fifteenth against the celtics. There's something actually appropriate about of being. The celtics are in town. Maybe you should wait for full audience. That do that with nine hundred thousand laker fans but who knows when we'll have that raise their that sells racer banner tomorrow. Adam silver already said next season full houses right but michael. There's no question okay. So that's interesting. Though you guys so there will be. I think the lakers gonna win it again. But let's say don't let say another team wins it. Would it be weird to raise a banner and celebrate if you're not the current champs. Yeah yeah that'd be little so so that's why you don't wait until next year. You gotta do it at some point this year. This year may ireland. So they're healthy by the way Manda put a poll with that picture asked people do they like it or they don't like it. I guarantee you. I'll get seventy eight percent approval on zuber's well. Yeah that's just because it's you and people love you so they're going to side with you. A lot of people think look like a hammer pants. I ever heard of a good thing. You're married michael because no woman would probably go out with you wearing those. I don't disagree. I think are very confident in wearing well. You heard base. You heard. I asked michael how you got julie to go out with them. You already said what city walked up to her. He said i'm a laker there. You go when i'm a laker. What about it the parents would have been. You'll break down the deal out of work on you right. Amanda i showed up next for you is fasttrack mason ireland. Seven ten espn.

"Welcome to travel with stephanie abrams. I am just thrilled that you are with me today. We're gonna be doing some hopping around the world today. And i hope you could stay with us for everything that we're doing so that we can keep you company if you're driving or you're cooking wonderful full things in your kitchen or maybe you've gotten ambitious. You're straightening out of closet. Isn't that always fun. This seems to be the time of year that inspires me to do that. Sort of thing. I wait for a good rainy day. I said this is the day. I will dig in ghastly thing cleaning closets. Isn't it you mess up the entire house trying to straighten out one closet. That's just how it is folks. But you know somewhere in all the things you've been attacking in your swelling. I i have a suspicion. You're kind of getting tired of looking for walls and no matter. How many rooms. you have. The doesn't seem like there's enough space for you and anyone else. You may cohen habit with. And i'd like you to be giving some thought and attention to where you're going to want to head for the minute that this iron curtain of disease lifts and we're also talking about places to go in the us while it's cumbersome to go to some places in the world who are not interested in seeing our passports arrive at the door and who can blame them but this is not going to be forever and the good news is. I'll share a secret with you in my early married life. One of the things that kept me really happy was planning the next weekend breakaway and this is abc before children. And so i would plan a weekend getaway for every four to six weeks and we do lots of dr market road trips draws a circle around where you live and that easy to get to places and then of course i would plan the big bash on the other side of the atlantic and Over the years we have gone one. Two three as many as five times to europe in one year Which is glorious and there are ways to pull that off people and if you want to do it and live really really well. Don't go for a long period of time. You don't need to go fourteen to twenty one days. Go for a really long weekend. Five is going to fly across the ocean. Leave on wednesday. Come back sunday or monday. And you'll spend some time in the air and probably three or four nights on the ground and if you're going closer to home where you can drive somewhere you can apply all those rules that are shifting and changing the most important being going to places that you have confidence a your time in your money will have been well invested. You will come away with a wonderful memory. You will remember where you stayed. Not just where you went. If you can't remember where you stayed something was wrong with the trip and so for those of you listening for the first time ever. Where have you been the last eighteen years.

So it's gotta be at least i'm gonna say fourteen years ago. Maybe maybe it's more somewhere in there. I became aware that a brand new resort was opening just across the border from the republic of ireland just north of cavan and monaghan and whatever else is up in the north of the northern tip of the central part of the republic of ireland in in northern ireland county for mono a new resort just opened and they had big plans to build golf course and to extra buildings and that look like windmills. At any minute. Don quixote may come looking for and i think the place was open maybe two months when we piled into visit and i could see from what they had already done the vision of what they were going to do and so over the last more than a decade. I've had on the various people. They've had as general manager of loch earn resort in county fermanagh northern ireland up place very much associated with the famous young amazingly skilled talented golfer. Rory mcilroy and it's also a place that they were very proud to host. I don't remember if it was the g. Seven the g. eight. it's however many people showed up. i think it was a g. seven could have been the. What do i know anyway. There's this wonderful picture on the grounds just. Outside of the main building of loch earn resort in northern ireland is a picture with on hella merckel in it and President obama is in the pictures very cool and Once upon a time we put the tv on and the channel it was on was showing a hotel bedroom turned out. It was either the bachelor. The bachelorette i forget which one a show. I didn't normally watch just happened to be on that channel. But when the when the screen lit up i looked at my husband. Said we've slept in that bedroom. But i can't tell you where it is. And and then. They showed the living room adjoining the bedroom suite area. And i said oh my gosh. That's let's the nick. Faldo suite at loch earn resort. And darned if i wasn't right again so i'm about to introduce you to the newest the brightest and probably the best. Gm that lock earn resort will ever have had joanne. Walsh who has been with locker resort since before it opened and told me in a chat the other day by telephone across the ocean that she was there the day the roof went on. Can you imagine how cool is that. So we've got a person with real skill real ability real talent and darling personality joanne. Walsh waiting to talk with us right after. This portions of today's show brought to you by yourself. Offering vacationers cultural experiences wrapped in history and sherman traditional european architecture. A unesco world heritage city on a southern caribbean island with kkob speeches and over sixty dive in snorkeling sites. Curious out for yourself visit curious. How dot com. I am delighted to have on the line with me. Live from county for modena in northern ireland. And while it's says it's enniskillen you're not sitting into town of enniskillen is where they go to the post office to get their mail. That's true in so many places including where i live. So it's a delight to have you on the line with us joanne. Thank you for making time to join us today. So talk to me. What year was it when construction on locker and resort began. Okay so that's what we were there. Well no we weren't there when when did it actually open to function as a place on nine th september for wedding we actually opened our those ourselves into the pressure to to set a wedding date and we had a wedding on saturday. The twenty ninth to september two thousand seven and we actually opened as ready as we were for the wedding. My gosh well two thousand seven resonates with me because on march sixteenth. Two thousand seven. And i'm trying to think where where it took place I don't remember where it took place. It might have taken place at the saint patrick's center county down I was given the honor and recognition and honorary friend of saint patrick for my significant contribution to increasing from north america. Particularly from the us to the saint patrick's center so that was a big two thousand seven. We're gonna take a quick break a big deal now. The only honored to people a year and the other one they honored was the lord mayor of london england that year so i was in fast company. We're gonna take a quick break and come right back. This is stephanie. Abrams talking about loch earn resort with the general manager. Joe walsh don't leave me. People will be right back Aw each travel with stephanie. Abrams thank you for being with us. We're talking with joanne. Wash the general manager of loch earn resort in county for mono- and if tanya cathcart happens to listen to this in a podcast or archived audio at our website or any podcast during the world She is If things haven't changed i would imagine she still is The head of tourism for county ramona and she does a wonderful job. And the first time i met her was at loch earn resort Probably around two thousand eight or nine or something like that and maybe it was a little later than that but we should keep in touch all these years for my audience. You know how. Many general managers i interview and you know how fewer women when there is a woman who is general manager. You already know how skilled and talented and competent. That person is because the competition for positions in especially fine hotels is fierce and that sector of hotel. Employment is dominated by men. And i think part of it has to do that. A lot of women. are not for the challenge of giving the kind of devoted care and attention that general manager has to give because being the general manager of a hotel means. Hotel comes before birthdays and anniversaries and two children are in a school play. If there's something that's going on at the hotel it takes precedence and you know you have to really be passionate about being a general manager because it doesn't work. Otherwise am i right on that joanne. So right you make me smile when you say it comes birthdays. Anniversaries come first when you have a result of the size and you commit yourself to that and of course ships being here from the beginning you. It feels like home to me. So it's what you choose to people in full-time come in now. Did you live in the region and found a convenient place to be employed in the travel industry. Or did you move from someplace else. In order to accept a position at locker room resort. i actually was between i. Actually you mentioned cabin festival last ethnic so i actually used to work in it and a rival hotel in county. Cavan i when. I i note to see russell attorney walker with sony. Walk with my first off. When i moved to island that wrong. He might have just retired recently. I know no. I don't know where. I got the impression he might have retired. But we've done. We've covered the sleeve walker on any number of occasions cleaver where i work and then i was. I was doing weddings. And i was a wedding coordinator when i first moved over there which is about seventeen years ago now and i started my first job an island in the russell and i was there for a couple of years and to add jim tracy that builds lakhan resort was. His daughter was getting married with me in the russell and we both live in the same village. The village nearby called belco. And jim tracy and i our neighbors are home and he knew who i was. I'm one day he said to me. Come here again lady. I've got something to show you. So i was. I was already between bellevue. Is right on the border of carbon. And from honor i w- i live right on the border so it was easy to get to the russell. Look now is a little closer to home for me. So he he he showed me. This great wide open failed instead. I'm going to build a resort here. And i'm ready history. So let me ask you a question before we go into next commercial break Have you ever visited the kevin county museum of which sabina donohoe is the donahue. I'm not sure which i think. She's the curator him. I don't know. I think. I think i miss the labor of them. I don't know. I don't know but there's a lot donahue's in the area on your next moment of you have time and they're open to travel. That's it go and visit. The museum is amazing. And it would be easy to self to this since in there and it is amazing. They've got a percy french room. They have a room filled with vintage clothing that i loved together designer to go in there and copy every one of those dresses and shoes for me. You've got to go and give my love. We're gonna take a quick break and come right back and jump into learning more about the place in the place. Where rory mcilroy famed golfer. Hold this skills right after these important messages. Don't leave only guests of stephanie. Abrams travel shows when here. The berkshires of western massachusetts. Stay at the delightful and trendy boutique hotel on north visit their website at hotel on north dot com aids. Travel with stephanie abrams. Well i'm delighted to have on the line with me joe in walk. She's the general manager of loch earn resort in with. You're looking for an address. It's an skill in but it's not in the town of enniskillen. It's really in a state of out on a country road And the entrance. Kind of sneaks up on you as you come around the bend and as you come into the gates and up the wind e drive. You're gonna pass some holiday homes that have been built there And the the golf course off their to. You're right and as you continue down the driveway you'll come to a big building. That has a kind of castle. feel to it And then as you continue past that main building where you'll find the restaurant that You know the bar the lounge the library As you continue down that road There are these individual buildings that have accommodations with you. Know several bedrooms or one bedroom They're built in a way that the building can be shared And it has like comments on its own common living room and whatever and we've actually stayed there on one of our adventures to Lock earn resort We took with us. Those of you in berkshire county will know well David is be our senior producer. And you know him of radio fame and berkshire county and eric green from whoopi. Who came to do All the sound that we needed to be taken care of so we had our producer and our sound engineer and off we went and they were expecting to play golf. We're talking with If you're just joining us joe walsh. Gm at loch earn resort. They were going to play golf. When the first nine holes of the nick faldo course were finished and they had an early morning tee off time. It's something like i. Dunno eight thirty in the morning and it was in march so it probably was march of two thousand eight. I wanna guess and it was. It was frost on the grass and for insurance reasons. They couldn't go out and play. That was sad. They were so disappointed but anyway. Listen i got them. Playing it in. Saint andrew wasn't all bad but and they played at a couple of other courses ireland but in any event. That was very exciting thing. Because you know it was good couple years that the first nine holes were finished on that course after the Two thousand seven opening of loch earn resort. So let's talk a bit about the actual physical plant. You've got the first main building and then you've got these individual buildings that look like well. They look like the windmills. Mecca knows a little turret round. They they sit right on the lake very popular years and abuts loch earn. And you know people that you look at a map you'll find if lower lough erne is the most northern part of lake and upper lough. Erne is the most southern part of -sarily understand. But i don't understand fish that swim upstream either. So in any event Earn resort abuts. Lower lough earn which is in the most part of the lake and the views are spectacular from your dining room. You know to be able to look out and see the lake. And it's fantastic and fabulous. Let's talk about those terminal buildings i We stayed in one. That had i think three bedrooms. They were on different levels like offer spiral staircase because his big like turret of a castle. I but there were three individual bedrooms and then we had the shared living room space. That we would veg out. Let's to are they because they were all different sizes. No we have a mixture. We've got eleven two bedrooms and we've got sorry eleven three bedrooms and then we've got fourteen two bedrooms so making twenty five largest so we call them our luxury like side largest and they have they all have a kitchen and dining facilities and additional lounge area almost like asleep and then you have three individuals hotel rooms that are accessed privately by keycard. And they'll on three with the same road in separate shower marble vanity unit off in each of the hotel room. So you're still guessing really a hotel room but in a large in an and logic combination which is almost like little home of your own on the results. You can then time with us in any of our restaurants and you can also use a spa the leisure facilities on the well especially now. I mean i don't remember having you know kind of kitchen facility available. Because i wouldn't have been interested in going near it especially when the food at locker has always been outrageously over the top fabulous but today. There's a good chance. I would check in and i would never go into your dining room even socially distance. Whatever you know. We have been socially distanced since march sixteenth. Twenty twenty. And it's now october. I mean we're practically in november. And i haven't been in the company of anybody except being at some distance walking through dublin airport getting on the plane flying business class so there were only six people in business cabinet. When we came home so social distancing it was not a problem picking up her car rental car so we could drive to another airport where our car was because aer lingus was flying to boston but not the hartford and managing to go through all that and staying healthy and so You know. I'm not afraid to go places. I want to go places. That are atypical. From the kind of things i would be looking at. I would have been looking for a year ago. And so it's very appealing to me to think that a family could go and take over. Turret have three bedrooms have a kitchen area where you can prepare things and all over ireland people in ireland and northern ireland. And if you're in vermont go find the as the store a. s. d. a. It's owned by walmart. By the way they are wonderful stores and you can go online order your food. They call it. Click and collect and you drive up and you can get your food and you don't have to have any contact with anybody and bring it back and do what you need to do. And frankly if you're traveling with children it's a delight that our family. Nobody was on the same breakfast schedule. You know there was somebody got up at six and somebody else got up at eight and my husband get up around nine and i get up about eleven. I'm a night person. I'm paying for night. I sleep late in the morning so having that kind of facility that the terrent rooms definitely it's been really and we also when we reopened on the seventeenth of july after four months of lockdown when we reopened. I'm we're selling the twenty five lodges as individual self-catering homes. We also offer now by fabulous. Nomo mail we also offer takeaway away so you can really at dinner for for your family. We can do this on. Yeah we can do garlic and it means that yes. you have an oven in in Like you stephanie. I don't want to go my holidays and cook either but it does mean that we can offer a takeaway facility from the restaurants just to give you an extra failing. Stay stay in case. You're not comfortable sitting in a restaurant more. By the way. I spoke with no mcmeel by telephone in october of two thousand two and met him face to face in january of two thousand three because we were the hosts of a wedding in our family. that we organized and sorted out and no was the executive chef at the castle is a good five years before earn started rolling at louis. County county monaghan. Which is where. Paul mccartney married the second wife the beast and so you know when we were picking out a place when somebody you know that you see a celebrity with the opportunity that they can buy anything they want has chosen something. It's kind of a good indicator rory mcilroy hanging out around locker a really good indication that some goods happening here. So and no was the chef. So that's when. I first met noel mcmeel author of the cookbook irish pantry of which i have two copies. I'm happy to say one day. I'll give one to somebody. I love but i've got the both i'll have to send you so i don't need any more honestly. I so rarely get into doing the kinds of wonderful things that are in that book. Major lockdown no was actually posting at some of these recipes on instagram for people to do his banana bread. Try that in the states during lockdown. We certainly did hear. Everybody was making nebraska when i was living in ballygawley and karen castle at corner cottage and i may find out to know why because we buy. We order the food from the order bananas and the last two always got overripe and it broke my heart so i bake panetta. Britt was making banana indeed. So now we've talked about the accommodations deterrent. the turrets that again people they remind me of the windmills. In in in making those or you know other places. They're they're meant to remind you of of on the castle but hey they're lovely lovely inside to stay. I really enjoyed when we stayed there. And then there's the main building and care are accommodations in that building including the nick faldo suite which was the one that was featured in that bachelor or bachelorette episode that when they went to locker they did the whole show different places in ireland or at least i think and that particular series. I'm sure many of my listeners. Know what i'm talking about. Even if i don't but the main building has That taller building. But they right so have nine veterans in the main building. Okay so what's the grand total of a combinations increments hundred twenty rooms and what's the heads in beds. Total count two hundred and forty accommodation beds. Okay so you know. It's still a good size. For the potential of a golf outing of a company of a board of directors something yeah of corporate days for all companies and car companies and media companies. Here in ireland. Come right back talking with joanne. Walsh at locker and resort county for mata northern ireland Zero each travel with stephanie. Abrams on the line with me. Is joanne wash. And i want to remind you that. If you've missed any part of this hour or any hour of travel with stephanie abrams. You can go to any podcast her and find us and especially you know the all the big ones name it spotify. My new favorite. By the way for i mean they do such a lovely job with the layout. It's so pretty Listen notes and there's some of them that they have shows going back forever so And you can find them at s abrahams as a b. are ams dot net. Where there are photo galleries. There are lots of photo galleries about ireland as well. The many that are in progress. And i do hope since. We're talking about northern ireland that you'll go to my blog and you will read the in memoriam that i wrote Honoring the life of john hume who was the nineteen ninety-eight nobel peace prize winner for his significant work that brought about the good friday agreement ending the troubles in northern ireland. And you'll find That information in know the story there. I had the good fortune of being introduced to him by a hotelier in northern ireland. Patsy o'kane Who used to own beachill country house which was in the neighborhood. Really of where john hume lived and So i really got to know him as a friend. Not just as somebody that. I happen to pass in the so. Let's talk a little bit. Joanne about the other features and amenities Certainly golfing is a really important thing. and i don't know that we need to say much about that because the the association with nick faldo the association with rory mcilroy You know that kind of says it all people. It's a place worth your time if you're a golfer but also try to go for crosses here so we how faldo coast which at nick design and he was actually whether he stay with us last year when the open was on here in island and it came down to stay with us he played a cover for. He was with us He was actually posing for one american sports channel. So we've got customer hyun call so to clunkers says the founder coast as named of. They're in the top ten courses supply chain in ireland so officer and we got the most spectacular view divorca gasol hugh now is was that built in own by locker in resort or is that a walton yet. Yeah that was actually on the original ground that we build the results home so kathleen clubhouse indeed there with your catholic. Mcconnell doesn't exist anymore There is an old of coat in hill. You know when you come across the drawbridge. Daphne and you look to your right and you can see the original coach. One of our suites is actually named after the coat. They the only parts of the original castle of catholic one of tweets. He's named after the architect that and kind catholic him and that was rich. So tell me about your spunk. To imagine there are some companions of golfers who aren't interested in golfing and could use that time to kind of veg out and rejuvenate now. We do have a lot a lot of very popular with the golfers couples that come apart from the corporate goals days and obviously the societies that come from all over europe we get a lot european golf. A lot of Some you can again within. The island of ireland of travel is the way it usually is. We were get 'em some americans.

For everything that we're doing so that we can keep you company if you're driving or. You're cooking wonderful full things in your kitchen or maybe you've gotten ambitious you're straightening out of closet isn't that always fun?

You mess up the entire house trying to straighten out one closet? That's just how it is folks. But you know somewhere in all the things you've been attacking in your swelling. I I have a suspicion. You're kind of getting tired of looking for walls and no matter how many rooms you have. This doesn't seem like there's enough space for you and. Anyone. Else you may Cohen Habit with. And I'd like you to be giving some thought attention to where you're going to want to head for the minute that this iron. Curtain of disease lifts. and. We're also talking about places to go in the US while it's cumbersome. To go to some places in the world who are not. Interested in seeing our passports arrive at the door and who can blame them. But this is not going to be forever. and. The good news is. I'll share a secret with you. In my early married life. One of the things that kept me really happy. was planning the next weekend breakaway. And this is ABC before children. And so I would plan a weekend getaway for every four to six weeks. And we to lots of Dr. Market. Road trips. A circle around where you live and that easy to get to places. and. Then of course, I would plan the big bash. On the other side of the Atlantic. And Over the years we have gone one, two three. As many as five times to Europe in one year which is glorious and there are ways to pull that off people. And if you want to do it and live really really well. Don't go for a long period of time. You don't need to go fourteen to twenty one days. Go for a really long weekend. Of course notion leave on Wednesday come back Sunday or Monday. And you'll spend some time in the air and probably three or four nights on the ground. and. If you're going closer to home where you can drive somewhere, you can apply all those. Rules that are shifting and changing the most important being going to places that you have confidence. A your time in your money will have been well invested. You will come away with a wonderful memory. You will remember where you stayed not just where you went. If you can't remember where you stayed. Something was wrong with the trip. And so. For those of you listening for the first time ever, where have you been the last eighteen years but? If you're listening for the first time.

Fourteen years ago maybe maybe it's more somewhere in there. I became aware that a brand new resort was opening. Just across the border from the Republic of Ireland just north of. And Monahan and whatever else is up in the north of the northern tip of the central part of the Republic of Ireland. In in Northern Ireland County for Mono. A new resort just opened. And they had big plans to build golf course and to extra buildings and that looked like windmills at any minute, Don? Quixote come. Looking for. And I think the place was open maybe two months when we piled into visit. And I could see from what they had already done. The vision of what they were going to do. And so over the last more than a decade. I've had on the various people they've had as general manager. Of loch earn resort in County Fermanagh Northern Ireland. Up Place very much associated with the famous young. Amazingly skilled talented Golfer Rory mcilroy. And it's also a place that they were very proud to host I. don't remember what it was the G. Seven, the G. Eight. It's however many people showed up I think it was a g seven could have been the what do I know? Anyway, there's this wonderful picture on the grounds outside just outside of the main building of Loch earn resort in Northern Ireland is a picture with on Hella Merckel in it and President Obama is in the pictures. Very cool. And Once upon a time, we put the TV on and the channel it was on was showing a hotel bedroom. Turned out it was either the Bachelor, the Bachelorette I forget which one a show. I didn't normally watch just happened to be on that channel. But when the when the screen lit up I looked at my husband said, we've slept in that bedroom. But I can't tell you where it is and and then they showed the living room adjoining, the bedroom suite area and I said Oh my gosh that's let's the Nick Faldo suite at Loch earn resort and darned if I wasn't right again. So I'm about to introduce you.

We're talking with Joanne, Walsh the general manager of Loch. Earn resort in county for Mono- and if. Tanya Cathcart happens to listen to this in a podcast or archived audio at our website or any podcast through the world she is if things haven't changed. I would imagine she still is the head of tourism for county for Mona, and she does a wonderful job and the first time I met her. Was At loch EARN RESORT probably around two, thousand, eight or nine or something like that, and maybe it was a little later than that. But we vanished keep in touch all these years. For my audience. You know how many general managers I interview and you know how fewer women? When there is a woman who is a general manager? You already know how skilled and talented and competent that person is because the competition. For, positions in especially fine hotels is fierce and that sector of hotel employment. Is. Dominated by men. and. I think part of it has to do that that a lot of women. Are Not up for the challenge of giving the kind of devoted care and attention that a general manager has to give because th- being the general manager of a hotel means the hotel comes before birthdays and anniversaries and. Two children are in a school play. If there's something that's going on at the hotel, it takes precedence and you know you have to really be passionate about being a general manager because it doesn't work otherwise am I right on that Jim Aweso rights, you make me smile when you say it comes up of birthdays. Anniversaries come first when you have a result of this size and you commit yourself on a cruise. Ship set being here from the beginning you get feels like home to me. So it's it's where you choose to be, but it's it's full time. Commend now did you live in the region and found a convenient place to be employed in the travel industry or did you move from someplace else in order to accept a position locker room resort I actually was between I actually you mentioned happened festival vast ethnic. So I actually used to work in and a rival hotel income to Kevin I when I first as went. No to see. Russel. Tony Walker Oni One County Walker with Tony. Walk. Off when I moved to island. Over that wrong he might have just retired recently i. Yet Right I don't know why I got the impression he might have retired but we've done we've covered the sleeve walker on any number of occasions. Sleeve roughly where I worked and then. I was. I was doing weddings and I was a wedding coordinator when I first moved over there, which is about seventeen years ago now. And I started my first job in island in the Russell and I was there for a couple of years and Jim Tracy that builds lock results Waugh's at his daughter was getting married. With me in the Russell and we both live in the same village village nearby called Belco and Jim Tracy and I. Our neighbors are home and he knew who I was on one day. He said to me come here young lady I got something to show you so I was I was already between. BELCO is right on the border of cotton and from honor and I I live right on the border. So it was easy to get to the see Russell look at it. Now, a little closer to home for me. So he he showed me this great wide open field. Instead I'm going to build a resort hair and. History. So let me ask you a question before we go into the next commercial break. Have you ever visited the Kevin County Museum of which Sabina Donohoe is the. Or Donohue I'm not sure which I think it's. In dinos. She's curators. I don't know I think. They both I I don't know I don't know. It's be honest but. Donahue's in the area. On your next moment of wrestling where you have time and they're open. Travel. That's it go and visit. The museum is amazing and it would be easy to self to distance in there and it is amazing. They've got Percy French room they have a room filled with vintage clothing that I'd love to get a designer to go in there and copy every one of those dresses and the shoes for me. You've got to go and give Sabina.

It's travel with Stephanie Abrams. Well I'm delighted to have on the line with me Joe in. She's the general manager of Loch earn resort in. With. You're looking for an address it's an skilling, but it's not in the town of enniskillen. It's really in a state of out on a country road. And the entrance kind of sneaks up on you as you come around the bend and as you come into the gates and up the wind d drive, you're GonNa pass some holiday homes that have been built there and the the golf courses off their to you're right and as you continue down the driveway, you'll come to a big building that has a kind of. Castle feel to it and then as you continue pass that main building where you'll find the restaurant that. you know a bar the. Lounge the library as you continue down that road there are these individual buildings that have accommodations with you know several bedrooms or one bedroom they're built in a way that the building can be shared and it has like a comments on its own common living room and whatever, and we've actually stayed there on one of our adventures. To. Loch earn resort we took with US those of you in Berkshire County will know well, David is be our senior producer and you know him of radio fame and Berkshire County and Eric Green, from what he who came to do all the sound that we needed to be taken care of. So we had our producer and our sound engineer and off we went. And they were expecting to play golf. We're talking with if you're just joining US Joe? Walsh. GM At locker resort, they were gonNA play golf when the first nine holes of the Nick Faldo course were finished. and. They had an early morning tee off time. It's something like I. Don't know eight or eight thirty in the morning. And it was in March. So it probably was march of two, thousand, eight, I want to guess. It was it was frost on the grass. and. For insurance reasons, they couldn't go out and play. That was sad they were so disappointed. But anyway listen, I got them playing it say mantra. So it wasn't all bad. Quite and they'd played it a couple of courses in Ireland but in any event. That was very exciting thing because you know it was a good couple of years that the first nine holes were finished on that course after only. Two thousand seven opening of locker and resort. So. Let's talk a bit about the actual physical plant. You've got the first main building. Then you've got these individual buildings look like. Well they look like the windmills Mecca nose. Turret. Current. You haven't. Around. They sit right on the like the very popular. Yes and property abuts. A lock earn and you know people when you look at a map. You'll find if. Lower Lough Erne is the most northern part of the lake. and. Upper Lough Erne is the most southern part of. -sarily, understand but I don't understand fish that swim upstream either so. In any event. Loch earn resort abuts lower lough Erne, which is in the most northern part of the lake and the views are spectacular. From. Your dining room you know to be able to look out. Did you see the lake and you know it's Fantastic. Fabulous, let's talk about those buildings I. We stayed in one that had I think three bedrooms they were on different levels like offer spiral staircase because. Like Turret of a castle. But there were three individual bedrooms and then we had the shared living room space that we would veg out it. Seems. Are they think they were all different sizes now. We, have a mixture we've got eleven. Two bedrooms and we've got sorry eleven, three bedrooms and then we've got fourteen. Two bedrooms. So making we've got twenty five largest. So we call them a luxury like side largest and a half, they all have a kitchenette. And dining facilities an additional lounge area almost like asleep. And then you have three individual. Hotel rooms that are accessed privately by keycard. and. They all are on with the same rolltop happen separate shower, marble vanity unity half in each of the hotel rooms. So you're still guessing really a hotel room, but in a large in and logic combination, which is almost like little home of your own on the results, you can then dine with us in any of our restaurants and you can also use the spa the leisure facilities on the Putin. Well especially now. I mean I don't remember having you know kind of kitchenette facility available because I wouldn't have been interested in going near it especially when the food at locker has always been outrageously over the top. Fabulous. But today. There's a good chance I would check in and I would never go into your dining room. Even, if it was socially distance that whatever. have been socially distanced since March sixteenth. Twenty twenty. And it's now October I mean, we're practically in November and. I haven't been in the company of anybody except being some distance walking through Dublin airport getting on the plane. Flying Business Class. So they're only six people in the business class cabin when we came home. So social distancing, it was not a problem. Picking up her car rental car. So we could drive to another airport where our car was because AER lingus was flying to Boston but not the Hartford. And managing to go through all that and staying healthy. And so you know I'm not afraid to go places but I wanna go places that are. Atypical Club the kind of things I would be looking at I would have been looking for a year ago and so it's very appealing to me to think that a family. Could go and take over Turret. have. Three bedrooms have a kitchen area where you can prepare things and over Ireland people in Ireland and Northern Ireland. And if you're in, for Mata, go find the as the store A. S. D. A. It's owned by Walmart by the way. They are wonderful stores and you can go online order your food they call it, click and collect and you drive up and you can get your food and you don't have to have any contact with anybody and bring it back and do what you need to do, and frankly if you're traveling with children. It's a delight that you know. Our family nobody was on the same breakfast schedule. You know there was somebody got up at six and somebody else got up eight. and. My husband would get up around nine and I get up about eleven. I'm a night person I'm up here for night I sleep late in the morning. So. Having. That kind of facility that the turret rooms. Really PA- and we also when we reopened on the seventeenth of July after foam lockdown. When we opened, I'm with selling the twenty five lodges as Individual self-catering homes. We also offer now by I are fabulous. Mayo. We also offer takeaway service so you can insert. Dinner for for your family, we can do this on. Yeah we can do wedges. Brash and it means that, yes, you have an in in Buh. Like US definitely I don't want to go my holidays and cook either but it does mean that we can offer takeaway facility from the restaurants just to give extra feeling of stay stay in case you're not comfortable restaurant. By the way I, I spoke with no mcmeel by telephone in October of two thousand two. And met him face to face. In January of two, thousand three. Because we were the hosts of a wedding in our family. that we organized sorted out and no was the executive chef. At the castle is. A good five years before loch earn started rolling at I saw. County. Leslie County. Monaghan which is where Paul McCartney married the second the second wife. Beast. OCULUS. Yes. And so. You know when we were picking out a place when somebody you know that you see a celebrity with. The opportunity that. They can buy anything they want. Has Chosen something. It's kind of a good indicator. Rory, mcilroy hanging out around. Lot Garden It's a really good indication that. Some goods happen here. So and no was the chef. So that's when I first met No mcmeel author of. The Cookbook Irish pantry. Of which I have to copy. So happy to say one day I'll give one to somebody I love but. I've got the both I'll have to. Copies so I don't need anymore. Honestly. I so rarely. Get into doing the kinds of wonderful things that are in that book. Major. During lockdown. No. With actually posting ads, some of these recipes on. Instagram for people to do his banana bread. Try that one. Wreck sayings in the states during down we certainly did hear everybody was making Nebraska. Yeah. Well, I was living in Ballygawley. And Karen Castle at Corner Cottage and I made about to, and you know why? Because we buy, we order the food from the order bananas and the last two always got overripe. And broke my heart. So I baked Panetta bread. Indeed so Now, we've talked about the accommodations deterrent. The turrets on the property that again people they remind me of the windmills in in in making nose or you know other places they're they're meant to remind you of Terence on the castle but hey. They're lovely. Lovely inside to stay I. Really enjoyed when we stayed there. And Then, there's the main building and there are accommodations in that building including the Nick Faldo Suite, which was the one that was featured in that bachelor or Bachelorette episode that when they went to. Locker they did the whole show different places in Ireland or at least most of it I think and that. Particular. Series I'm sure many of my listeners know when I'm talking about. But the main building has. Its that Taller building. But they. Right so Nine. Veterans from the main building. Okay. So what's the grand total of a accommodations? Hundred Twenty One, hundred twenty rooms, and what's the heads in beds total count. Two, hundred and forty. Accommodation. Beds okay so. You know it's still a good size for the potential of.

That information and you know the story there I had the good fortune of being introduced to him by a hotelier in northern, Ireland Patsy, O'Kane, who used to own beachill country house, which was in the neighborhood really of where John Hume lived and So I really got to know him as a friend not just as somebody that I happen to pass in the night. So. Let's talk a little bit. About the other features amenities certainly the golfing a really important thing. and I don't know that we need to say much more about that because the the association with Nick Faldo the Association with Rory mcilroy know that Kinda says it all people it's a place worth your time if you're a golfer. But also. To Here. So we have the follow obviously which at Nick, designed.

Channel. So we casual human call so to park line. Courses. Faldo coast as and named of they're in the top ten courses supply in island of and so we got love. And we got the most spectacular view of divorce. Hugh. Now is was that built and owned by locker earn resort or is that a wealthy yet the ad that was actually on the original ground that we build the results so Catholic clubhouse. Indeed, the original Catholic humor cattle doesn't exist anymore There is an of coat in hill.

The only part standing original capital of ship. Fleets is named after the architect that and kind Catholic human that was Richard. Castle. So tell me about your spa. Because I have to imagine there are some companions of golfers who are interested in golfing. And could use that time to kind of veg out and rejuvenate now. So we do. Obviously, we have a lot of very popular with the golfers. So we'll have couples that come and play apart from corporate goals days and other societies that come from all over and Europe we get a lot european-gulf with. Some you can again within the island island of when travel is the way that the way it usually is we get 'em some Americans which play Parkland courses and do the circuit of the courses were included on months and but generally post on the recent times been a lot. Of the I've been playing with us but they like to come have dinner. They'll play golf one day and the play the different course the second day, and then you know if any aching muscles and any to sue the way, the aches and pains go in the SPA and might have a massage or go the Mexico City or they might go to the steam unless the owner or they might go. And I. Know. You can't imagine how relaxed you can get you know dealing with some Bailey's bushmills Jason's or something. But. We also have Kim now. As a new distillery Stephanie just across the lake from us. So we have our own from gin and then call the boatyard distillery and they actually just the lake from resume offer. We can take a water talked to the decelerate and you can do little tour of the. Jimmy a huge thing can now so we have the distillery right across the waterfront and you can take a water taxi going toward the. They can. Now as it used. Very very popular here. I'm in this hour. Thank you so much for joining us today. Stay with me everybody more to come. This is Stephanie Abrams. By. Welcome. To travel with Stephanie Abrams. Well, thank you for joining us. I in the Nice thing about radio. It's one of those things you can. Engage with. While doing any number of other things. It's one of the difficulties I have with. Certain things in life like reading, I can't read serious stuff. And give as much concert concentrations is something else. There are other things you can't do if you're doing one thing, you can't do anything else. I guess like. You know being in a movie theater watching a movie. That's all you can do right that unless you bring your knitting with you. It's one of those things you can do. Truly blindly. Marvelous. But I'm glad we can keep you company while you're driving or cooking or painting room or cleaning a closet or. Doing something. Relatively mindless that you don't have to give one hundred, ten percent of your attention to and I'm glad that we're year to keep you company while you doing that. Maybe, you're just lucky enough to be lounging and. Relaxing in trying to disconnect from this completely insane. World we are living in at the moment. Could grief. So. while. We're here to help keep you. Grounded in the sense of family thinking and. Planning to travel both now and in the future. Now with. Great Focus. On. Where you can go and how you can go there safely. And if you hold only an American passport. We're lucky that we have destinations. All over the forty eight contiguous states. And if you're lucky enough to be able to get to places like. Hawaii Alaska. I guess you could go to Guam that could be interesting. I was only in Guam once. Maybe twice. Could be twice doesn't matter. It was just for the plane to refuel. We were. Either going to or coming back. From somewhere in. Asia. And, we did our refueling stop in Guam. I actually was on a flight. I took a member. Of Our family just with me. And off, we went to Thailand. And we refueled in seward Alaska. That was amazing. You know they sell. mink coats and. Other for coats. In their gift shop at the airport in seward Alaska. Off they still do they probably do. A lot of people connecting. A refueling. In Japan but coming from Japan. And other places in Asia that might. Stop in. Alaska. and. There are people with substantial pocket change. And Lots of space on their credit cards. Because they were pricey. But I have to tell you I wasn't impressed with the styles. It wasn't like shopping for for Code in Paris or someplace. But they were lovely furs. And they were dead when we got there but I didn't buy anything. So please don't send me letters. But I have to tell you if you are a person who lives in a temperate. And you don't really know what cold is. A FOR COAT IN A. Truly winter destination is for survival. Although happily there are products. Now that are all synthetic in manmade you warm. But I have to tell you it was it was down. To. You have to get off the plane when they refill. Can't stay on the plane. And you would want to. And So there we were in the airport. Funny to see in a gift shop at an airport. Items that are costing three thousand dollars up. Some normal typical. People usually talk about the high price of things in airport shops. You Ain't seen nothing. You've seen price tags that our foreign five figures. Hanging? Off Of. Garments. In. An airport gift shop. Was Cute. Interesting memory. But I. WanNa Talk With You about a number of things because. For the most part at the moment and various destinations. I don't know if they're really doing it but they talk about how every two weeks evaluating and reevaluating you know who's getting into their country and WHO's not. right now. Though reevaluation of what's going on in Ireland Northern Ireland. In the last hour, we were talking with Joanne Walsh the Gen the new. General manager or the newest general manager of the first woman general manager at Lochore in resort. In County Fermanagh Northern Ireland which. County Cavan Monaghan. It's you know. One day there may be a hard border and we all pray that does not happen. Where you actually have to go through. Passport Control. between the Republican violent and Northern Ireland. I. You know it's just a political line drawn on a map. Nothing significantly happens going from Ireland and Northern Ireland. Other. than the currency changes from euros two pound sterling. And When you drive around the road signs in Northern Ireland's list everything in miles where it's in kilometers. In the republic. And I'm one of those.

Each travel with Stephanie Abrams I was watching a film and It's called legal action and founded on Netflix. If you WANNA watch it and in the film, there's a character named Solomon who I think is an ex marine in the film bad I hardly remember the film anymore. And I only. Saw It last week they started to watch it again I'd remember everything about it. But in the film, there's a line where this character Solomon says, I don't know a loophole from a lily pad and was talking about I don't know something legal whatever. But I got stuck on that sentence and I got stuck on the sentence because for most people listening to it they would be thinking that he is not conversant in how to skirt the law, how to find what we refer to as a loophole. A place you can slide through unscathed, not get in trouble and do something that you know they're you know the law really was intended this to happen, but you can kind of go under the limbo bar and escape, and while that sentence I don't know a loophole from a lily pad might refer or you know remind people to think in terms of legal action for me. You'RE GONNA. Love this. It makes me think of a place called Dalton key ta L.. K.. E. Y. Doggy. Town a beautiful residential town in County Dublin. where up the hill from Donkey Fitzpatrick castle wonderful place to stay. And even if you're not staying there, there have a cup of tea. Have a lunch have dinner try to get their daylight because on a clear day you can see the mountains of Mourne from up there. Any hillsides in Dublin On a clear day, you can see all the way up into Northern Ireland. It's really quite remarkable by in the village of dog key where by the way Matt Damon Rented A. House. To for stay in February march, he was going to be making a film and they started work on the film and then the lockdown came on March sixteenth and he was in this house he was renting from a famous nascar driver named Eddy something. I think is. It starts with is e something those you into race cars you'll know who he is and you can google even that little bit and find the measly. So this guy. Eddy, made a lot of money and he knows how to live and this whole region. up the hillside from Dorky five minute walk up well welcome uphill. Walking Downhill it's five minutes ago a little longer to walk. It's like, San. Francisco Hill. But a few minutes up the hill from Dole key is the town of Collini. And ENYA has a castle there. Bono from U two has a fabulous place to live there. I don't know if they still have houses there. But. I. Know The pay us both Liam Neeson and Pierce Brosnan had houses there the areas known as the Beverly Hills of Dublin. Very Sassy. And if you just come down the hillside from colliding, you're indulging. which is a lovely residential, little bit more affordable. Area? And sort of like a suburb of Dublin. Town Centre. Easy reached the Dublin Town Center and also an easy jump off point to go to places like Powers Court Falls Glenda law you know all kinds of wonderful places already out of the Dublin city traffic and Lovely place to stay. And by the way, if you stay if it's Patrick Castle. you can at the bottom of the hill down and all key you can pick up a train that takes you into Dublin in about twenty minutes and then Yeltsin drive and park and pay for the barking. And deal the traffic and driving on the left side and all that traffic and. All, that jazz. So Damon Matt Damon rented a House Thousand Dollars a day. Seven thousand dollars a week. And then they stopped working on the film and he left somewhere I wanna say it was the end either the end of April the end of May have forgotten which. But Indoor key there is key castle. And there are towers on terrorists at the top of the castle. and. You can walk in one side of that little square at the end and out the other side. So you didn't get trapped in there if the castle was attacked. So the archers could go in one side and out the other in a loop, and that's where the word loophole comes from. We'll be right back?

To introduce you to the mayor. Of Hobbs. New. Mexico. WHERE WE HAVE OUR NEWEST affiliate K. H. O. B. A. M Thirteen ninety. Welcome aboard. All y'all. And thank you for joining US Mayor Cobb. Can I call you Sam? In the travel industry, it is the rare person you come across who expected to be called Miss or MRS or Mr or Dr or whatever It's very informal industry. Everybody's GonNa first name basis and always has been so we we get a little too chummy sometimes. That's what I'm this I'm the same way myself. I'm very glad to hear that how how long have you lived in Hobbs were you born and raised here or somewhere else in New Mexico or are you above as they say in Ireland are you a blow in? I I came to Hobson the second grade. left for short period of time to go to college, and then came back in the mid seventy s and have been in in the food processing and wrenching and real estate development business and some oil and gas investments since that time. Oh you're like my Greek friends. You ever to Greece. US Oh you meet somebody and they're just as warm and loveliest charming as they can be but you meet somebody and they reach in their car, you take out your business cards to give it to them. And they reached of pocket and they take out a stack of business cards, and this is my insurance company. This is my travel company. This is my. My hotel this is. This is my car rental agency is my real estate development just goes on forever but I guess there is such a thing as an entrepreneurial personality. And clearly right in our. Area of this, our area of New Mexico is a very entrepreneurial area for sure. So where where were you born? Where were you the first seven years of your? Life. I was born in a little town north of Abilene Texas called Stamford Texas my father's family. Long history. Five generations and the cattle ranching business so You know a woman named Temple Grandin. I do Temple Grandin. She was at Texas Tech University when I was working teaching there and I I got to know her very well she revolutionized cattle handling in the livestock industry Ya and for all of you out there who are either somewhere on the autism spectrum or have someone in your life who is Temple Grandin has written dozens of books much about animal science, much of it about ranching and revolutionized the way cattle ranchers both in America and places like Australia and South America where they're big cattle ranches revolutionized away cattle is moved and herded and taken to slaughter and whatnot. And the woman is on the autism spectrum. HBO Did a feature film about her called Temple Grandin and Clare Dane played the title role as Temple. she's been a guest now I guess three or four times on my radio shows. And we actually went to Beekman town. Highschool. To or Beekman township maybe it's called High School in New York State about a two and a half hour drive from where we live because she was going to be speaking at a four H. thing. Four H. Club something. And I had to meet her because I had it on the air with me a number of times I'd never met her but I hear cattle I think temple and you can go for you're going to be able to find her. If you go to s Abrahams Dot Net and go to our archives shows and podcasts shows and you can find the shows she's been on just recently I had her on to talk about my dog. Aaron goal roof rescue in a little peculiar. So I met her in the mid seventies matter her in the early early to mid seventies when her philosophy about cattle handling was still a lot of resistance in the industry. But she proved that by changing those methods, it was much more humane and and much easier to get cattle into. Wherever location you wanted them to go so she's she has truly revolutionized the industry. No doubt. And the other two other pieces to that one she's a woman. And two. She is autistic and so you know there were. All, these macho guys in the in the cattle business looking at this frail. Thin tall skinny person. Who is you know? She she's what you'd call in a in a classroom, the atypical child and. To have this atypical woman coming in to tell a bunch of died in the wall. ranchers this is what you ought to be doing the ad takes some courage. But see the film people, Temple Grandin Grande, I N it's you'll find it online. No problem they probably net flicks so We're in all these things that you're doing Sam, did you get involved in community service as mayor of Hobbs New Mexico? Well I've served I've served that served in various appointed positions under four different governors in the state of Mexico, and then I've been very active in a lot of community. ORGANIZATIONS AND SURF for ten years on the Planning Board for the city of Hobbs and a group of citizens came to me in two thousand twelve and asked me if I would run for mayor so I did that and then I'm just in March of this year of starting my third term so and through the partnership that we've had we have We've had a lot of success in the community. We have been blessed with a very robust economy do what's been going on in the oil and gas industry prior to the pandemic but we've had over a almost two hundred, million dollars in quality of life improvements in our community and years, and this this city itself has a lot of amenities that Even, large metropolitan areas don't have we focused on trying to improve the quality of life. Well are. Okay with the probably the most important development we've done it was a sixty million dollar indoor or recreational facility that has an indoor waterpark to forty foot slides. An Indoor. Indoor swimming in diving competition pool. It. has an indoor warm water. Therapy and exercise pool. it has a three storey walking jogging track in center of it, and then for the kids, we have a regular pray play ground that looks like a McDonald's play land on steroids just over forty feet tall and has a huge slide for the kids to come down and so it's It's a hundred and fifty eight, thousand square feet in. There's you'll have to go there. You'd have to go to a large metropolitan area. To. Even find anything that would rival it in terms of its amenities and the size of the facility. Let me. Let me just address that hundred and fifty some odd which is eight, hundred, fifty, six, thousand, nine, hundred, Fifty, eight, thousand. Okay that's a little smaller than the average Walmart Supercenter people. Because they they used today in the name of. The name of it is the core C. O. R. E. and can find it on the Internet. And it stands for center of Recreational Excellence and so what we've tried to do is it's a basically a place where all ages from small children. All Children areas all the way up to our seniors created all in the same place. It's the same time. You've created a lot of jobs in the community, not only the construction jobs building in, but for maintaining it and for people running the programs and you know security purposes and whatnot I mean, that's but let me ask you what's the population of hops. Will we don't know with the census we hope to find out. We think we're going to be close to fifty thousand. But of course, you know the census has been such a problem this year that. WE'RE CONCERNED WE'RE NOT GONNA get to count but we we feel locked it within. The county census district, which is Fi- hobbs within an five mile radius around the community we think will be close to fifty thousand people. So. As Mayor? This is public records on that asking about your personal accounts. What is your budget? To run the city. it's over one, hundred, fifty, million dollars a year including our affects and all those other types of things about one hundred fifty, million dollars budget. It's been close to two, hundred million. Over the years but we have cut back naturally do the economy of contraction that we've had but it ranges between one hundred and fifty and two, hundred, million dollars a year so. What I'm what I'm trying a look at your in a fairly. Spread out sprawling kind of environment. No. I mean, you're you're not like. Some. Metropolis in America. No it's a town was founded in nineteen, twenty eight. So it's It's relatively spread out league and so It's not. Near. That's the tightness that you see with the older communities that are built. Sellers of your skills. Here's the thing I'm looking at I mean we live in a county with Right now, the official statistics are like one hundred and twenty, five thousand. somebody that's involved in county government said to me when I mentioned that. You Know Stephanie we don't have the new census yet but if I had to guess I'd say it's more like one, hundred, twelve thousand and where are really sprawling out county and we're not flat. We got mountains everywhere you look. Only, they're not really mountains are big hills, but we call them mountains. If you. Go Twenty five minutes north of where I live. You're in Vermont there you got real mountains. But we've got these wonderful hills at don't go above the tree line which makes our full foliage sensational 'cause it looks like the mountains are hills are carpeted 'cause the colorful trees go up one side across the top down the other side. But. We could use something like that in our county as a center to bring people together and feel like a community and not like a bunch of different small towns and a few cities small cities that are in this county and I know if somebody brought that up at one of the bigger. Cities in this county like Pittsfield, people would pass out they were just die away cold right in the meeting room at the thought of where is the money gonNA come from? Is it coming from my Baltimore relatives would say coming from all is it coming from the oil industry? Where is this money coming from? Well Yeah. All Industry Dot drives a lot of our business but where the money came from is the city put money into the project. We had a private foundation here that put money into the project school district put money into the project and New Mexico Junior College, which is our community college. Here we've put money into pop project and we paid cash for it. So we there's no bond issue that was issued for the project so. The, ongoing operating costs. Operating costs is being born. The city, the junior college, and the school district, but there is no debt for the facility we in. So it was. It was a good project and a good way to do it. So we don't burden taxpayer with bond issues. I like to get you on the phone in a conversation. With some of our local leaders and have you have one of those nice sharing sessions because I hear you saying that and I'm saying to myself boy. What could we use that? That would be so lovely and we've got tons of outdoor everything. I'm we've got walking trails and biking trails and hiking trails and trails that go up Constitution Hill, which has steeped in American Revolutionary War history, and we've got world class museums and world-class musical festivals and world class everything dance going on in this county that is ranks with the finest cultural activities available in the world, but we have long cold winters and with be nice. silty would be wonderful for that, and another thing that we have done we have we have we sent over two hundred million dollars collectively and none of that has been done with any borrowed money over the last. Well, we gotta take a quick commercial break. and. So a pick up on that right after this commercial break. So hang on with me down move. We'll be right back. Don't go away.

To find out about someplace in America that I know nothing about and in the midst of peeling away the layers of the onion to get at the heart of what's underneath all those layers I find out such phenomenal marvelous things are going on everywhere in the world, but particularly in the United States that we that never makes our news stories never makes our major newspapers. We don't know a thing about and is just assumed that we don't hear anything. So nothing's going on but I I wrote you Limerick Sam. There I read it. The family known as the COBS. Lives in New Mexico in a town called Hobbs, the fellow vets mayor has done his fair share to serve the town and help create jobs. So I think. I get. To write limericks I tried to keep them clean. That's what happens when you hang out in Ireland too long. So we were talking about the uniqueness of this small town. Really. And are you a city or town? No we're incorporated city Yar and so. You're doing some phenomenal things right there. Now, we had a chat earlier with Aaron Anderson from the Western Heritage Museum and County Lee. Cowboy Hall of fame, which was great fun. Are there any other hidden gems in hobbs or nearby and that somebody coming to the region because they wanNA check you guys out knows where else to go and what to do. Yes, there are a number of other items. One thing is we? We just in two thousand fifteen, we cut the ribbon on a new golf course that has won. Five national awards and five international awards for its design and its impact on the community and its ability to grow the game We have one of the largest I t programs in the region, not only the state and it has a we incorporated a walking trail around it so that Non Golfers Can utilize a facility we built the clubhouse so that would accommodate. Weddings and reunions and all those things. So we have a lot of people in the community that use that the jade United States Golf Association was so impressed with our work. That they came and did a video about growing the game and how community can improve the quality of life with the sport of golf and it's on their website at USDA. Dot. Org about rock win community links. Okay. So here's my question again. You know there are so many people. Who? Learn the word no. Before they learn the words, we can do that. who would get in the way of progress of that community center that golf course with its clubhouse and its I t program and people. The first t program was spearheaded by Tiger Woods as a program, for young. To learn life's lessons from learning to play golf not just about how to swing a club mechanically. But to learn some of the values that one come naturally out of playing the game and. I mean these are marvelous things but in many communities that I have lived in. And that I have knowledge of. Things that were seen as. Frivolous. You know, why are we wasting our money on that when we need us in? So do you have just a magnificent magnanimous donors or some really visionary people ready to cause anything anytime somebody's got a good idea there ten people there to stand up and tell you why that's not gonNA. Happen. So. How do you get? That, we have had our citizens have been part of that process and we've had good leadership in our other elected officials and other business leaders that we've been able to do that, and you kind of Foster A. An atmosphere. Of success, that way and then we hope. If. There's any legacy from my public service I hope that I pass that onto the younger people in the community takes needed to continue what we started in terms of working together in partnership so we can achieve. Much greater things collectively than we can't individually. So well, we hope that continues. Thank you for joining us this hour I. Hope you'll come back and talk with us again this delight.

So if you want anything all older than August two, thousand and twenty, you'll be able to click on the button that's going to take you there. So you've got the podcast you also have the archived audio, the show notes and links to the websites of the guests and all that jazz. our photo galleries are getting beefed up again and as well as the creation of mini sites at the new s Abrahams Sab R. A. Ms, Dot Net and. My blogs and we're in the midst of not only posting new blogs but going backwards because happily before our site evaporated on the eighteenth of August this year, a day that will live in infamy. We managed to back up a lot of stuff. So happily. Things like blogs, photo galleries, mini site information, and all that kind of thing a lot of it is it's just a matter of you know the work in progress of getting it all back up again. So while the the intention of the perpetrator was to put our site asunder so there. We've managed overcome. And it's just a lot of work and a lot of distraction You know it's like rebuilding a wing on your house that you just built. No sooner. Did you get it done but a tornado came through and just took off that which just did Y- only that just did was nineteen years worth of work. So Don't ask let's not go there as far as I'm concerned like being stuck in an airport fogged in at eleven o'clock at night when your connection was canceled and you can't get home and it's too late for the restaurants either the only the bar is open or even the bar is an open and reduce reduced eating popcorn and wishing hoping and praying whatever isn't going to change anything. You're just going to send it out to you home. So you might as well just do what you gotTa do and be happy and truly it is only when I reduced the wishing hoping and praying and things are completely out of my control that I feel vulnerable. You know as long as nobody second nobody's terminal when nobody's dead or dying the rest, you can deal with it may be time consuming or it may be annoying may be aggravating irritating or as my son used to say when he got. An eye infection that that couldn't be irritating was when you got in your ear must be dating. Love. Words don't you. But in any event. As annoying as an inconvenient and expensive financially, unemotionally, things can be. As long as nobody's sick or dying, don't worry about it. Just move on did on with it do what you gotta do stay focused and it'll all turn out and this may be that point in your life where I have to tell you clearly isn't mine but. This is a lingering theme in my life I have been focused. On what does it mean to be happy in this life? What does it take to make you? Happy? And if you're not as happy as you think you're entitled to be. Then sort out what it is that you need what environment would atmosphere. What place on the map where are you in? You're happy zone and see what you can do now that all the rules are gone. The rules about Kali. Back. Over. Decades. You know the rules are. In the circles Iranan family and friends. You graduated from High School you went on to college fell in love with somebody you've got married twelve seconds after graduation. Or in my case, six months before graduation and you know you did a job, you had a family. I mean there was a there was a prescription of what your life is going to be, and in many families, it was stamped on your forehead in invisible ink before you were born. What your occupation would be. And in many cases, if you're a woman, your occupation was to find the right guy and get married and have children. Happily so much has changed in the world. Unhappily. So much has changed in the world. In, recent months. And there is. I have not yet figured out our purpose on this planet. Especially when I watch so much hate. So much anger. so much destructive behavior. So much intolerance. That keep me why we're here. It just can't be. But if you have failed in your daily living. Real purpose in your life. Then maybe this is the time. To figure out how can you re purpose most of your time? To do that and if you've always wanted. To. Work in a marinas running away to the circus, you know that story. If. There's something you know you are happiest when Finish that sentence I am happiest when. And maybe that means that as this Iron Curtain of disease lifts. You relocate your life to a place where. You can spend more of your time doing exactly what makes you feel like you are? Fulfilling the prescription. That was may be divinely written. That you? Brings you great happiness and joy to do what? In an uncertain world. This is the best time. To give thought to have, I ever gone some place that made me truly happy and why am I not living there? If you're thinking about an international destination, the folks over at International Living Magazine. That's all they write about. So. Maybe it's a good idea. For You To give some thought. About where You Might WanNa go for. A long visit, an extended period of time. The rest of your life. You have one life on this planet invested well. I want to talk with you this hour. About. So. Many things related. To. Refocusing because of what's going on with this viral situation? which I have complete confidence. We will control what a vaccine that is safe has been tested. We know we can let somebody shoot us up with confidence that's not going to be the list breath we take because of it. I am confident. That like other diseases. Like smallpox smallpox was still out there. I understand it's really gone now because there's everybody's inoculated on the planet, nobody can get it kind of thing. All those diseases are out there. The reason reason we don't get them is we have AB- Unity's, and we have natural immunities. We have immunities as a result of somebody shot something into our arm and our body build up the antibodies, and once you've got that. Then, maybe you don't have to worry about getting polio where measles. Smallpox. Diphtheria or Anything else the germ is still out there, but it's not going to affect you. So we're GONNA get on top of this. Could take a little time. And I'm here to keep you company and give you some good things to think about. So I, got stuff to talk about the first thing I want to talk about is the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City. And this is a really important story and I think it's GonNa.

There is a hotel called the Roosevelt. It's been around forever. I can remember that hotel when I was a child going into Manhattan, there was out. If it were not. About to close the announcement was made, it's going out of business. Which? That's part of the tragedy of what's going on now. A. Couple of months back. Chip Rogers was a guest on travel with Stephanie. Abrams he's the CEO of the American hotel and lodging asssociation. And they had put out a press release about how eighty percent of the. Hotels in America and lodgings in America. Were at the verge of financial collapse. It is the rare hotel that doesn't have a mortgage. It's a rare hotel that doesn't have. Bills that they have to pay regardless of whether they have guests and how long can they go on? Pay Everything they have to pay with no income up. So that may well be scenario. You are personally familiar with in your own life, apply that by the financial obligations of a hotel. And the scary part of that story is. If. Hotels. Close Up. And can't come back because the people have defaulted on mortgages and what? What happens when the doors opened the tourism and there aren't enough rooms. I mean, there are two rules. That leads to come into play for a place to be financially viable for tourism. One is that you've got ways for people to get to you. So if there aren't enough. Or airline seats or flights. And when they see when people want to go there aren't enough hotel rooms go by tourism, which is a huge economic driver. We have to take a break when we come back, we're pick up on that and the Roosevelt Hotel? Don't leave me. We'll be right back Stephanie Abrams Zero.

Avenue out of every nine people on the planet. Is employed in travel tourism hospitality. Hotels other lodgings, restaurants, attractions, which include things like nonprofits, museums, and. The like as well as things like theme parks and Theaters and whatever they rely on visitors because. Think about where you live think about what the attractions are, where you live, how many times a year do you go to those attractions and for people who live in places that? Like Florida where Orlando an easy reach. Do you go. Just, like this, all the time. Or do you go because family friends? Grandchildren, other relatives. Visitors come to see you and. To find a way to spend the day. So you're not just sitting out on your patio. You'll go off to some theme parks are others, but you think about cities. When's the last time you went to the kinds of places that a visitor to the city would go to? I live in Berkshire County and Western Massachusetts. We have world class museums here. When the Boston red. SOx. Won The world series the trophy went on. Tour. With some of the baseball players. And they came out to Berkshire County with their trophy and they stopped at a few different places a few different evenings. So, one night they were in Pittsfield. I think they did it at a Pittsfield high school, but I'm not positive. I don't really remember because I didn't go to that one, but they had to go to a place that was big enough that people could. You, know lineup inside. To stroll past. To pay homage to this monument this trophy. Which I really think the baseball industry needs to redesign because in the world of trophies that I have seen, this is probably the least exciting. It's really not a beautiful piece of sculpture they do better. Think about it those people if you're listening. To a little redesign. In any event, we couldn't get to the one in Pittsfield we went to the Norman. Rockwell Museum And stockbridge Massachusetts which is about know five, six, seven miles from where I live. Now I've been to the Norman Rockwell Museum a gazillion times. We'll go three four times a year just because we like to go. And any time we have a guest. So, maybe we'll go eight ten times a year. depends. On how many guests come visit. This year would be great exception. But it's a place worth visiting and it's worth visiting because it's a place that. Is always changing. They're always having roving exhibits or they've got. Art Work that's warehouse in though bring some other stuff in and put some things away for a period of time. So is always something going on and often they have people who are You know visiting to give speeches and whatnot. So The Boston red. SOx. And their trophy. Not The whole team couple of the players. And the trophy came and they were going to be. One evening over at the Norman? Rockwell. Museum. So we went. And it was a nice long line. To come and stroll past like a receiving line at a celebrity wedding. And I found it astonishing. To listen as the line moved through the museum to get to the point where in one of the rooms of the museum they had the trophy set up and the players there and The dignitaries of the museum see how to go through you know good two, three, four rooms till you got to wear the. Trophy was. Blind while. And there were people recognizing friends and neighbors and high y'all and you know all that kind of stuff that goes on. But the common theme as you move from room to room and as walking through all the artwork is on the walls. And people are commenting because Rockwell used. People that were. Native people that lived in the county in Berkshire County. So people tell that's my aunt that was my grandmother that was. That was me. You know that kind of thing. Because that's who use for models, but the overriding theme was, oh, I haven't been here since I went with my third grade class and there were people local residents who had never been inside the Norman Rockwell Museum. And I'll bet you got the same thing cooking where you live too. So I wanNA talk about more about that. We have to take a break. We'll be right back.

Dot Com it's travel with Stephanie Abrams Cell I was talking about the Roosevelt Hotel. I was talking about hotels jeopardy in the US and elsewhere in the world. But for the moment, let's worry about our own backyard. I was talking about. nonprofits. Museums. Attractions and whatnot. And all the now you've got all these threads. Let me bring them together for you. If we don't support. Our local hotels. And when I say local in a five to seven, hundred, thousand mile range drive market. Even, if you drew a circle around where you live of two hundred and fifty miles. Radius, that's five hundred mile diameter. You will find attractions you will find. Hotels. In various kinds you'll find. Things that you could be doing. That will. Provide you with some diversion from feeling like a sudden. Or a prisoner. And you will find. Uplifting experiences. To e can't live in a vacuum. In everything that you get. In terms of input should not come from a flat screen. So. And if we don't support our hotels. Are Restaurants. Even if it's takeout. If we don't support our hotels and our restaurants and our museums. Who is I'd like to think you know foundations. and. There are many that are well-funded like you know people like Bill Gates and the likes. Would step up to the plate. To help fund. and. Make sure that our important attractions. But also our hotels or restaurants don't disappear. How many businesses can afford to stay in business without one dollar revenue in a year? And that's what we're heading for. So it behooves us. Especially for those of you who like me have wanderlust WanNa go places. ENJOY THE EXPERIENCES LOVE MEMORY BANK So that, you have a lifetime of wonderful experiences to look back on and that you can learn from them because I listened to people open their mouths and forgive me people don't have to tell you. They're brilliant and they don't have to tell you. They're stupid. You'll know that the minute they open their mouth and they start to talk. It's like somebody trying to tell you. They're beautiful. You'll know if they're beautiful on the inside or the outside. Once you start to interface with them. They, don't have to tell you. And going places is key. To. Appreciating. The Earth, which is such a beautiful planet. And the things the positive things that have been created on this planet over Millennia. That I come away enriched enhanced, inspired and uplifted. From visiting those places in a way that. You know I have a TV show but I'm going to tell you why I can show you places in the world. Don't think because you saw it on the TV show now, you don't need to go there. If, you saw and you connected with it that's the reason why you have to go there because whatever you are seeing on a flat screen or a flat piece of paper. Doesn't come close to the experience of being there. So, now when our passports. have. The value of toilet tissue. This is the time to be looking at how can I go places Places that are open either because it's open air places just outdoorsy things. Or they're really controlling the environment. So so few people are going to time and they have given you an indication that they have knocked themselves out. To, use disinfecting this and that. Where the experience is as contact as possible, and if you're going to have contact, you're going to have a mask. You're going to have latex gloves on you're gonNA, throw them away, peel them off inside out and drop them somewhere. Before you go and get in your own car. And I am convinced that this can work. If everybody is doing their due diligence and I can tell you that the hospitality industry from the airlines. To hoteliers. are going out of their way to massively deep clean everything in sight because the last thing they WANNA do is lose their staff and lose their guests that would not be pretty And this is essential. Really is essential. So if you have restrictions. Wherever you are, and I can tell you that the places like in Ireland where five kilometers. Ten kilometers, six miles six and a quarter miles. So it's a little over three miles. Five kilometers. They've got a restriction. You can't go further away from that unless it's something essential. You're headed for some hospital that's farther away or. I got to have a good story if he gets stopped. By. The Garda. Police. But even within a small radius of wherever you are. See if there is a way where you can comfortably go and visit and support. Your local community, your drive market. Because without that kind of. Economic Traffic. When things open up? There are places that are going to be ghost towns. That's a pretty thought. So I wanted to tell you about the Roosevelt Hotel. You, know I am a person that believes in positivity. I don't waste my time telling negative stories. This is only partially negative story. It's more a funny story than anything else, but it's not a story. I would have told you if I wouldn't have talked about the Roosevelt Hotel. Ever. And I mentioned earlier in this segment. Really what my mission is, and that's the introduce you to destinations and suppliers in those destination and the travel industry suppliers are. Companies that provide products and services for travelers. and. I'm not talking about products and services like hand sanitizers mask I'm talking about products and services like hotel rooms. Car Rentals. Cruise. Ships. Museums and. Others attractions would ever. There are people who are in broadcasting who focus on travel I don't know that they come out of the travel industry and maybe that's where the differences maybe if I had gone to school for Journalism and broadcasting and. Whatever And put that interest together with an interest in travel and slap the label on my forehead that said travel expert because I'd been a lot of places Maybe that's the difference I come out of the travel industry I'm listed as one of the hundred most powerful women in travel by a travel agent magazine who three years in a row included me in their lists of. The lists kept getting smaller started out. With the most powerful women in trouble the next issue was the two hundred and fifty or the two hundred, I forget which. Most, powerful tribal, the one, hundred most powerful women travel, and the next one was the fifty and that's when I hit the cutting room for. US. The fifty you are. People those of you listening in Florida those of you the travel industry will know who I'm talking about people like Vicki freed. who was then vice president of sales and who knows what's in a long title? Very Perky spunky wonderful woman who was. For the longest time with Carnival cruise lines, and then probably about eight ten years ago, moved over to another cruise line. But people like Vicki, free people from from sabre. One of the airline reservation systems, the one that was developed by American, airlines people who were with airlines and whatever, and so I got edged out folks. But nonetheless You know I was in the first three issues they have read. and. I have a different attitude. I don't see the point in wasting time telling you about places that are no good. What is the point of that? There's one guy out there wrote a book about you know the worst places to visit why would you waste your time writing it more than that? Why would you raise your time reading it? Investor Time Finding out about places. Suppliers in the industry and destinations that I am convinced you will come home from enriched, enhanced, inspired and uplifted, and somehow know you're a better person because of the experience you just had. Now I'M GONNA come back to that because. There's some really inherent things that have to do with respecting other people. Being tolerant to allowing new ideas to infiltrate your brain. Being able to see that there isn't one way. To open a coconut or anything else. You know there are some things we do routinely this is how we do it and then you go to some other country and they're doing the same thing. So differently so much better so much more efficiently for so much less money and it's working better we actually can learn from other people on the planet. But because when you go from New York to New Jersey you're you go from. Washington to Oregon. You're not crossing into another country. And we pretty much. From, state to state do so much the same way. We get the impression if we never leave our little bubble. But this is how it's done and it's the only way it's done. And I think you can understand it best when you think about your own growing process at one day, you looked at how your parents did something and it's anything from. Landscaping to something in the kitchen or whatever, and it was like. Bingo moment when you said, why are you doing it that way? You'll be so much easier if you would. Men Do that to women all the time they're always there to supervise. Why are you doing that way? You should do it this way. But when we as people just travel in the US and not elsewhere. We don't get that learning experience. So it's really vital. And I'm going to swing back to that but first I wanted to tell you about the Roosevelt. So in never have shared this with you because. No point. In badmouthing. Hotel. Rather talk to you about great places. Then talk to you about why places in. Great. But. Now they're out of business. They have announced it I don't know if they've actually shut dwarf door but it doesn't make a difference they're going. The Roosevelt. Hotel in a fabulous location. That's the most about it. The rooms are okay. I don't ever remember it be like you know. From the song, the Cole Porter Song near the tops, you're the Eiffel Tower, your Mickey Mouse now. No. But it was less expensive the some of the places that were in New York and be pricing. Reservoir hotel was taken over. By a a big group door during toy fair. Decades ago sometime in the early nineties. And it was taken over by. A lot of people. Between. and. My husband's company took about fifty rules about. Four sales, people and Outta town executives and others. And In order to accommodate everybody could come in for toy fair to Hominy, take a break and I'm GonNa tell you what happened to me in the lobby of doubts up don't leave.

But there are so many fabulous hotels. In New York City that to talk about and to visit and pine to stay at. It would never have been a hotel way up on my list of well our. Yes. To put it bluntly if it were a snowstorm and the long island railroad wasn't running and Amtrak wasn't running and there was no way to get a taxi or a subway in go home or go somewhere else. In the only game in town might stay, but it never would have been my hip rate years ago. My husband was in the toy business and February was the month of toy fair and the first week of February was kind of like a pre toy fair week when all the fancy pants we buyers came from all over the US and all over the world people that bought millions of dollars their orders were you know double figure millions And they were buying next Christmas in February whatever next, you know whatever your it was February orders coming to see all the way manufacturers and what they were displaying for toys for next. Christmas. which in general would be available for shipment in October if you took early shipment and then you get a little extra. Kicker of a advertising money. If he took early shipment of paid early there, that kind of stuff is what I picked up along the way. And I used to go in for one of the week. So the first week was when all the big huge fires came in and the second week was pretty much everybody else and the last week often tended to be anybody that didn't make it to the first or second week or you know small buyers local buyers And that was it. And then the last week in the month was the company Roundup. How do we do? What do we need to manufacture? What didn't sell and all that kind of thing so I would go in for a week by myself. Nanny at home with the kids and then the next week the kids were out of school because it was the third week in February and presidents week off and I would bring the kids and we'd spend a week. In the city was great. I loved. The special vacation. So one year they didn't make whoever was in charge of making reservations didn't make them early enough, and by the time they went looking for fifty rooms in a hotel for the salesman and other executives who would be coming in and staying in Manhattan because they were in meetings from early early in the morning, and then with clients out for dinner entertaining people and it was like nonstop. So if you live outside of Manhattan, you really needed to say hat and there was no time for commuting and so when they went to get the fifty rooms, the only hotel they could get with fifty rooms available was the Roosevelt because it was kind of last minute it was like about sixty days before sometime in November when somebody woke up and said Oh my goodness, we don't have reservations for to a fair and so they made the reservations at the Roosevelt. Now, the Roosevelt there's a a term I have to introduce you to. The. Term is hooker. Now, if you were in Ireland that would mean a boat and there's a fellow Bill O'Brien who owns O'Brien ferries and Doolan ferries and you can go he's a wonderful guy give him my love if you ever go on Doolan Ferrie or an O'Brien ferry. And he's in the area around Dolan and it's just south of the cliffs of Moher on the West Coast of Ireland and you can go out and see the cliffs from the sea or you can go to one of the Aaron Islands or more with bill and his companies and He's got a boat called the happy ochre which has nothing to do with prostitution. The hooker is a kind of boat because I remember the first time I saw the both in its name painted on side of the boat I thought that was hilarious. Well, that term applied it was hooker haven over at the Roosevelt, hotel had nothing to do with. And our this one particular evening are I got a call late afternoon from my husband that he's leaving the office at five o'clock he will swing by the Roosevelt at five thirty to pick me up already and we're going out to dinner with some big company that buys twice and we've got six o'clock. Reservations don't be late five thirty in the lobby. So I go to the lobby at about five twenty just in case he shows up early and I'm standing in. February. Near the door because it's colder, the closer you get to the door and I'm just hanging out standing they're all dressed cocktail dress. Heels would ever and a guy comes up to me and says, you look like you're available and my answer tatum was. Actually I am until my husband comes by he's police commissioner of New York City that man moved faster than the jet engine. I want you to think about that story I. Hope it's got a smile on your face come back next week. This is Stephanie Abrams and goodbye to the rose folk we're flying high.

Travel WITH Stephanie Abrams_December 5, 2020_Show ID 1718_We're Off to Ireland!

"Welcome to travel with stephanie. Abrams such this hour. We really are. do you remember back in. I'm gonna say sub tie early march this year. Twenty twenty while we were still in ireland going home on march eighteenth before we got the big surprise that on march fifteenth Aer lingus was not going to fly effective march seventeenth that there would be no parades for saint patrick's day anywhere in ireland that everything was going into lockdown and i Self appropriated or as they say in the army i- midnight requisitioned a term. My very good friend. Dear friend mark leslie invented Who lives in don leary a region within county dublin ireland. He invented the word down. Like you would have loch earn or lock really or Any other lake in ireland And i kind of love that there actually is locked. It's not in northern ireland in county down however it happens to be in galway. Can you imagine which is on the opposite coast on the west coast of ireland but There we were Locked down in ireland effective the sixteenth of march never making it home on the eighteenth. We can get on july but in that almost three week period between one we arrive the end of february and the date. We were supposed to go home. We covered a lot of ground and did a lot of interviews on day. We landed from the transatlantic flight from boston. No sorry we flew home. The boston we flew out of hartford connecticut's bradley international airport. Which meant that. When we flew home our car was a very big drive away from where we lead. Did 'cause we landed in boston. In july in the car was in connecticut but in any of them the day we landed we had arrangements coming off a transatlantic flight. That's much too short from boston to dublin to get a decent sleep however we had a nice little nap. Got off the plane. God our rental car from budget rental car in ireland. Who are wonderful people to deal with and headed for a town more or less than hour. Maybe a little bit more than an hour from dublin. Airport to meet my good friend. Mark leslie who then took us on a tour packing it as much as that day is we could before jetlag pounded upon us. And we imploded. Because that's what happens you. Suddenly you get to a point where you know. The mind is thinks it's willing. The body has no plans to join you so he took us in a two day period to four new exhibits. his company mortello has created visitors centers. He has created in ireland. He has created visitor experiences. Places like the j. p. morgan library in new york city museums in malta Including a fine arts museum. The science museum and fort saint angelo in malta. A bunch of years ago. It's gotta be a dozen years or more than that He was the one responsible for creating the ireland pavilion at the world. Expo in japan and we actually went and there was mark who took by our hot little hands On a tour of what he created to reveal ireland's to the world at this very special expo In i've i'm i was in It was either. It was in the way. I think When you get off the train in nagoya and we were coming in from kyoto but you could have come in from tokyo when you get off the train right there. There is a museum dedicated to the boston symphony orchestra as quite amazing but of course there was a strong connection for decades because of Surge eos our who was for ages. The conductor of the boston symphony orchestra of this great affection. the japanese for the boston symphony. But in any event We went to see these four exhibits. Each of them was amazing. And if you go back to the podcasts from march which you can find online. You of travel with stephanie. Abrams and We consoled the name for both now. Effective august of this year but prior to that one of the shows was called travelers. Four one one. And you can still find the podcasts online from march and you will find interviews that we did with the various head on shows the executive directors and whomever the directors of and whatnot at these four different exhibits that we visited with mark leslie and he stayed over the first night Actually nearby to where we were and it was just a lovely two days and a night that we spend together or might have been two evenings. Because i think we had dinner together both nights and it was just grant. I would say that. I was touched in a very special way by each of the exhibits. They are each in their own right. Very special and We'll review them with you. So that when you can get out of your own lockdown and get over to ireland you make sure you visit these places but one of them just won a major award and so. I got the email yesterday announcing who the winners were in this very competitive competition because it wasn't just a competition within ireland. It was a competition. I think it was just within europe but when i say just within europe that covers a lot of territory and so This wonderful museum in county monaghan. Interestingly enough very close to castle leslie which is owned by marx family and A place you can stay the place. Where paul mccartney married the second wife the better known as the beast A swear i got connected with the leslie family. When i my husband. And i created and hosted a family wedding there and in the process became great friends to the point that i truly feel like mark is a brother not just a friend certainly not merely an acquaintance. And he is my go-to person for all things irish british and even going past other borders. Because he's like talking to a walking encyclopedia. I don't think there's anything he's ever connected with. He's forgotten the details on so he's just one yet again another award and it's for the patrick kavanagh center in county monaghan ireland and we've got him on the line live from done leary in county dublin ireland. We're going to talk with him right after this. Get motivated by reading the fantastic reviews of rumors by stephanie. Abrams at amazon dot com. This is the perfect season. This snuggle up with a good book rumors by stephanie. Abrams invite your book club to read it on the line. Live from county dublin in the region of county dublin known is done leary not spelled away you think it spelt. I m say it's dungle hairy but you say it a little differently when you pronounce the letters mark. How do you say it. I cheekily call it. Large and hairy named after king leary. The famous increasing challenged got annoyed with patrick. For lighting the paschal fire on the hill of slain or whatever it is when the king was i like this sacred flash which was ultimate publicity stunt in irish history as he was trying to mock it and brand christianity to shias pagan warriors society and by upstaging the king by leising bigger five on the on a big hill. Then to kill the king he got dragged before the king to give candidate himself and Anyway it ultimately leads to island. Adopting one of those we edge palestinian culture religions asia led to quite a lot of trouble over the ages. Go patrick that's all i can say. Somebody traffic blockage in in america. So they they know all about the problems caused by some patrick. Regrettably americans who have never been in ireland for saint patrick's day and probably haven't been in ireland ever The people who have never done something seem to be the best informed and totally confident of their opinions. Me as odd. We're talking about nagoya staggered at my first trip to japan to be offered to go to the nagoya. Sue cannon temple for kano another incarnation of one of the gods to witness what they call the serpent. Repelling saint festival. Whose consisted lots of japanese in green celebrating the great japanese center. Patriarchy made that up absolutely true. Patrick's day is huge in japan. Got a lot of places knees warriors. Playing full tongue. plaid's playing bagpipes to accompany japanese maples. In very short skirts don the river don's new name. Every red setter owner all of central japan parading.

Learn more at cure sow dot com that c. You are aca o. Dot com Travel with stephanie. Abrams on the line with me. Live from don. Leery of that is spelt so strangely and by the way i just watched a film i think i saw. I think it's a net flix film fairly new on net flicks that i've just watched and the name of the phone completely escapes me. But i will figure it out hopefully before this hour has concluded and share it with you. It's the story of the eighteen forties in ireland. And it was. It's a low budget felt done so well and it's captivating and i have a suspicion it might have been in that film maybe seven yes black black forty seven exactly. I think it was that film but it might have been another one where one of the characters a woman. A young woman's name was leery. And if if you put on the closed captioning says we sometimes do with that. Have people with accents because my husband gets lost in the accents They spelled leary the same way. It's spelled in donelly which is something what. What is it. l. a. o. g. h. a. r. i. e. Something like that. I mean if you look at it you never pronounce it right but in any of them. You mentioned red centers you know we had we call read centers in the us. Irish setters I have been told by series dog. Breeders that the reason you practically never see an irish setter or read center in the republic of ireland is that the irish setter was bred out of the english center which is white with either red or black dots and They whoever was the breeder breeding the dog until they got rid of all the white and when they were done they had a red dog. At least that's what i was told and we had for those of you into dogged them in my audience if you're in dire setters. Our dogs double grandfather the grandfather sire on both sides. Our dog name was sir. Timothy dog spelled with two cheese. The doj sir timothy dogs Double grandfather on both sides was meadow larks intrepid. Now when i'm in a group of doggy people who are really into dogs. And know the irish setter history. And i say sir timothy dogs double grandfather father was on both sides. The sire side. The damn side was meadow. Lark's intrepid. I mean it's like i said i'm descended from louis. The fourteenth i get one of those who la la experiences in the room because that's that's dog royalty. He was gorgeous gorgeous and such an irish personality. If you're just joining of kentucky with mark leslie live from leary in county dublin. And when i say he had an irish personality mark. Have you ever had a red center or no people are to shame to say. I've never had a dog. I had who you couldn't write a dog so easily so you're in muddy. Commodity feels monahan. It was nice to be carried conveyed across the fields above the sort of mof level. Now but you know. The first day. I arrived at castle leslie for the first time which was many many many times ago. There was max who was a field english springer spaniel although in ireland. You'd never call them a english. You'd call them that. In the north or the other side of the irish sea they just refer to them springer spaniels which are quite spagna springer spaniels and cocker spaniel's very popular and border collies. Of course where the sweetest dogs in the world and just wanna heard the whole family together in the same room but There was a dog. That lived outside named max at castle leslie in when the first time i was there and was there until a max passed away probably about eight nine years ago. Something like that. But i met max in two thousand and two so max is post dates. You're living at castle leslie. I imagine in your adult life by any event When you meet somebody that owns an irish setter. Particularly a male irish setter. You are meeting a very patient person. Because if they weren't patient when they got this dog save patients with the stoke but they are so gorgeous and so sweet and and when i say they have an irish personality i would walk into are dead and there was timothy dalton taking up on the sofa in the den and i look at him and say what are you doing on my couch. Please get off now. And he and he knew what i was saying he would lift his head. Stare into my eyes. Like you're asking me to get off the soft warm comfortable sofa and he put his head back down and that would be that these take a break and come right back to stay with me everybody. curious out the dutch island with caribbean and south american flavors blended to tantalize taste.

Mark leslie live from county dublin in done leary where he lives just by the side of the irish where he generally swims every morning or at least has for the last low. These many years in that icy cold water don't know how you do it but god bless you Escorted from the city c. One right near less than four seals threatening very beautiful snowy white baby-seal the sort of nuclear family. Long pop. you know brother and sister but the baby you'll be in very concerned it's got stuck on high wall out three days ago and nobody could figure out how to get it. Down was particularly high tide and it got stuck on. Somebody's called more and it currently took a spectacular tumble about three days ago. And everybody's you had been killed. And then yesterday i saw on its own looking for its family and came swam. Great quizzically tug up to me. Take the family to away to by delights this morning. Derek walls with mom-and-pop probably want to siblings so it take three days for the family to find it or vice versa. And so you swim around together retake this. How life is that my goodness you know. Some of my life altering experiences have been with unusual animals Feeding ten day old white bengal tiger from a bottle of special formula created by a veterinarian in mexico for this ten day old who was rejected by. Its mom So i got to hold the baby tiger and feed it with the baby bottle and you know i have to get that photo back up on s abrahams dot net. Because it was the number one photo visited as abrahams dot com forever. So we got to go find that photo and get it up at At essay room dot net. But there are a number of things that i need to be talking about. We had on my very good friend pat gormley last week and we were talking about how pat lives in pittsfield massachusetts which is a twin city to a balance in county. Mayo and everybody at in pittsfield is all excited. Everybody imbalance is all excited. Because joe biden's family comes from ballerina but in this little brief in ballot seems to belong to that family owned. It isn't a truthfully isn't a cousin of them. Because it's a small town but well it is a city actually and As cities go it's a relatively small city but so is pittsfield massachusetts. It's not a huge city either so they're perfectly paired but very presidential city because the great mary robinson first female president hails from balan our well and they're in the process of creating a presidential library for that quite appropriate. They can claim both an irish under married on the us president. Yes and that's a very interesting thought. I hope they do promote it. That way and of course. Mary was the one who was promoting getting this library built. So i'm watching. The politics of that was very funny over a good couple of year period. But you know there's so many silly things that make me laugh but in any event you can see me with mary. Robinson first female president of ireland in episode nine of travel tv with stephanie. Abrams which is posted archived at s abrahams dot net and it's called of olympic proportions. And i'm with mary and kenny. Did i say olympic. Oh shoot me. Thank you for somebody. Keep me honest of titanic proportions and mary ann. Kenny was then the shock of ireland. Was there mary's brother adrien. Who's an attorney. What a lovely fellow. He is and about three thousand people piled into this little tiny town of lower dan for the celebration of the hundredth anniversary of the sinking of titanic on april. Two thousand twelve. And you can see all of that in episode nine of my tv show so go to s abrahams dot net. But what was interesting to me. When i learned that my good friend mark leslie was on the line with us at the moment had a earned yet again another award for truly award winning work. Easy for you to say what your web it At the patrick kavanagh center in county monaghan ireland what. I didn't know until this moment when we were in the commercial break is that it's joe biden's father's side that comes from bellona by his mother's side comes from county louth and where exactly in county louth by the family. Come from the mother's side of the bike family. Come from the comes into cooley mansions. Which just above scheme where the patrick cavernous center were. The great irish epic tale combo cooling took place. The great brand boulevard was hidden in those mountains by At king kong nessa to stop the the greedy queen maeve capturing it and this is an epic war that took place in the linage. Which for a long time was considered to be missick. But they're finding more and more archaeological evidence realize like troy. It was missile legend based on real historical places and events So there's a strong tradition of culture and poetry and patrick covenant is a very great poet. Bci greatest irish poet of the middle century from a very humble background. He's like we'll be fun. He was a plowman poet self educated so convinced of his own genius that he didn't even have the bus threat to dublin but he walked anyhow and this proved his genius and paved the way for the poetry every day finding the magic in every day. Thanks very much continued by a shame. Zini who covers similar very humble rural background and wonderful story of the completely unknown shameless. Hedy coming down to dubliners an unknown young man and deciding to pay homage to covenant by going to the pub that he was to drink famous literary pub and amazingly for non usa process. Donald mcrae poet looked up spotted in the young man coming said he question mark and he knelt it without another word covered a slit creamy pint of guinness across and less without saying another word and be astonished. Unlock said he's never anyone a drink. In his life he must have met a worthy successor. And why do you think that great nobel laureates you're not carry. The flame of a particular style mood poetry sounded by governor but through his knowledge of violence. Joe biden passed a lot of knowledge. Back cavanaugh on to barrack obama when he was vice. President obama was the president and obama used to pepe. his speeches with quotes from kevin rallied. Heaney just to be one jump ahead to the us condit's you know who knew he. D inside backwards. Decide john the british bob to go one besser and only quote. He needs gurun rather himself and that was thanks to joe biden housing. The information on site house guy. You you really immersed yourself in a way that the average even scholar of patrick kavanagh's poetry and for those of you just joining us. I'm talking with mark leslie He is responsible for building fabulous visitors centers all over the world one of his newest open. This year in county monaghan called the patrick kavanagh center. Patrick kavanagh I got lucky. Enough to be immersed in the life and times of and works of patrick kavanagh being taken on a guided tour by mark leslie And i found in thinking about the experience once we were out. The door is a small place but it is a very intensive experience being there. And when you leave you feel like you truly knew the man and you just come to visit him at home. But when i left mark i had the overwhelming feeling that i had been just standing at the intersection of robert frost and carl sandburg Imposed in an irish environment. Because there is that same quietness about the descriptive. Nature of simple things and nature and life and the kind of impact that reading a rubber frost poem or carl. Sandburg poem has on the reader. That's the same. The essence of what. I felt leaving that center. I mean it's really a remarkable experience. So what what's the award that you got. What is the something called the european museum academy which is sort of equivalent as influence in museums all over the world. so let's technically european institution people museums. Its juices palolo. Compete to get their award. So a european museum academy award has the same cachet status in the museum world as the. Us you know motion picture academy has on the film world. So extraordinary that little community project would have won a european museum academy award in the section called heritage in motion. They have like the technical section for the innovative types of museums that are using virtual reality. Augmented reality websites computer games over very innovative movies. Those are the five main categories in the heritage. The heritage in motion is a section of the main academy awards. The domain academy would tend to go for a whole museum collection. Awards went to the whole. Gpo museum or the class. Debbie's him for for for a little converted. Church converted into a museum said go by the lake community and the flame of it very much kept alive and fortunately we. We're like the relay race. Run out the joins. The relay race in the very last lap. You know gets the trophy but that community community have been running that center keeping it is keeping lively doing all sorts of imaginative things with it.

And that's just the proof of the pudding that excellence will rise like cream to the top Very proud of you. Mark you mentioned in the last segment References to glass nevins visit. Glass nevin cemeteries visitor's center. And i've forgotten the other one you mentioned. What was the other one. You owe the gpo. The general post office way the equivalent of the alamo took place In a massacre by the brits upon those in dublin See the film. Michael collins starring liam niessen and alan rickman. It's filled that must be thirty or forty years old. At this point it is worth your Entertainment and educational experience and the gpo story and the bloody sunday massacre or all the easter rising massacre. That it's all in there you know mark earlier. You mentioned that biden's models side of the faculty of the family was from county louth and Is there a particular town or towns in county louth that from the very legendary and historic cooley. Mountains luma above dundee. But i think she was from a row neth and to make sure we stash directive. Not hundred percent. Sure maybe it was the father and the mother that was abolished. But i think i've got it right. That have some other for. I think you're right. I think his father's side is from from balladur and i wasn't aware that his mother was irish. So that's a new story for me but you know You mentioned Barack obama his mother's family ancestors came from county. Awfully and money gall as the church that they found the documents in had all the lineage connections is temple harry in money goal. And there's actually. I can't remember where it is but we stop there all the time Somewhere i think it south of dublin galway road. There's a way where the there's a like a a travel plaza with You can buy petrol gasoline and you can go in and have something to eat and you can buy this and that for the car Multiples as well as hard goods and it's called the Obama travel law quite a good little little exhibition in herald. Visits at not dumb by us. I hasten but you could cut it a lot of nice pictures and information about this virus connections. You know i've been in there a number of times because we've been between places if you're hungry it's a good place to stop and have an excellent bite to eat I mean not your typical roadside gasoline station. Get something to eat. Kinda thing Number of times. I've never seen any exhibit related to obama promoted very well. I had no idea they are a americans aren't always listens. We had some technical difficulties here which have given us into overtime. So we've got to take a break into the top of the hour news. Don't leave me. Everybody is stephanie. Abrams were flying high. Welcome to travel with stephanie abrams. I've got something specific on my mind day and for the purpose of getting insights that i hope he's willing to talk with me about i think the first one he won't have a problem with but the second he might decide he's not gonna talk with the about if that's the case i will just accept that for my very good friend mark leslie who is the founder visionary genius behind the company marcello based in leary county dublin. Who i call on for so many questions related to things that i know he will have the inside track to real answers to real questions. Where what i'm reading while i'm seeing on tv. What i'm hearing on radio is all as president elect biden's bus would have said malarkey and so I've got some things i need to talk with. Mark leslie about. Because i know he's going to know the answers and we're going to do that right after. This guests have stephanie. Abrams travel shows when here in the berkshires of western massachusetts. Stay at delightful untrendy boutique hotel on north. Visit their website and hotel on north dot com on the line with me. Live from ireland is mark leslie. Mark is not only the ceo and visionary behind the company mortello responsible for a list longer than my arm of not just the exhibits and visitor centre experiences but award winning visitor center experiences of the things that he produces are so valuable to the visitor and certainly financially valuable to whatever place. He's working on behalf of it brings more people to visit the place and learn about whatever the messages are that they wish to share and Earlier today we spoke about his latest award from the european museum academy awards the heritage museum award that he created and was one on behalf of a tourism folks in county monaghan for the patrick kavanagh center. Which is a very worthwhile experience so and there's another good reason to go into the midlands of ireland far too. Many people visit a country doesn't matter what country is the us included and they hug the shorelines. They never really get into the midland's going to county monaghan to visit. The patrick kavanagh center is a very good reason to go inland. But in any event More i want to welcome you and thank you for being with asleep. Still this hour Here's what's on my mind today. It's in two parts part number one. i was watching a show called jeopardy and Adrian mcnally. Who's the general manager of the titanic. Hotel belfast Tells me he watches it on netflix in northern ireland. Have you ever watched jeopardy the quiz show on netflix in ireland or in the us for that matter when you visit don't have live television avenue for about thirty years. But i do net flicks. I do some online okay all right. So here's this evening after we've hung up Go to netflix and do a search for jeopardy and you will love this game given your intellect an acronym acknowledge in what it's the most fun The way it works is they have aboard an on the board. They have categories and the contestants picket category and a dollar amount and when they flip over the dollar amount. There's a there's an answer to a question and their job as a contestant is to divine. What was the question that this is the answer to so a couple of weeks ago my husband and i were watching old jeopardy and a we were watching just a few days after the about forty year history of the presenter host of that show. Alex trebek's passed away and it was just a few days later. We were watching an old jeopardy episode. And the answer to the question was and i'm gonna let you divine. What was the question. The answer was in eighteen sixty nine. Mary ward died was the first to die this way. What's the question. I automobile accident arriva by steam powered car in the grounds of the castle. County awfully in ireland. Sadly the car had been invented and built by hub. Been love at first because The third earl of ross who built a giant telescope and she was a brilliant side photographer and botanist. And they were hopper. And i think he smashed up the car afterwards. He couldn't bear to drive it again. But i always think is remarkable. You could do a science fiction film back to the few chat and set it in birr castle. 'cause there was a family who in the eighteen fifties had built their own electricity hydro turbine and had that cost lit by electric lights. Were driving around in an automobile and were charting of the galaxies in that family telescope before all the time galaxy had he had been invented. It wasn't invented for another seventy years so you could make a very good case that duck. What's his name. The professor in back to the future cia s. I'm traveled to eighteen fifty and used his knowledge of the twentieth century to build sort of victorian versions of modern technology. The earl and his sons is kid. Even invented a thermocouple device and correctly measured the surface temperature of the mood in eighteen. Sixty or seventy and it was proved correct Nile armstrong may make points of checking the temperatures. The moon is it by gulf. Y'all ross was right in so anyway there you go how did i know how did i know you would know the not only the answer all the background so he was my frustration. And this is why. I thought of you for my audience when The current seventh earl of ross. William brendan william. Parsons william brendan parsons. Lord ross. the current lord. Ross wanted to create An exhibited the castle to give insights into the lineage of scientific people in ireland in his family in his family tree and especially because he felt that the scientific end of irish ingenuity was being ignored and overrun by things. Like literary figures and artists of creative people of all kinds. And so he engaged mark leslie. Who's on the line with us to go and create that exhibit so on what on our trip to ireland. Mark said to me. You've got to meet lord. Ross you've got to see this exhibit. Regrettably i'm gonna be out of the country so i'll set up the appointment and you go. And so my husband. And i accompanied by very dear friend breda reed who with her husband until about a year ago owned the glass in country house in golf club in glasses right near athlone the center of ireland athlone is just a straight run from athlone to burn in county awfully from west meath to burr in county awfully is just almost going to south so easy to get to from there and when i told Brita read mark. That i was going the next day to visit with lord ross. She asked if she could come along. And you can see that visit in my tv. Show traveled tv with stephanie. Abrams at s abrahams. dot net. If you've missed it on television s ab are ams dot net. It's episode seven called castle. And you'll see lord ross. You'll see the telescope. Mark was referring to and the grounds of the castle. And you'll see some of the exhibit that marks company created inside birr castle so i was very disappointed when i'm watching jeopardy and a lot of the times. The electric back the presenter when there was an answer to a question the contestant got it right or wrong he would often give some peripheral facts about. Yes this happened here or whatever you know just other stuff and i was shocked that he didn't say yes. This happened in ireland and happened burke hassle or any or from a very scientific he said nothing absolutely. Nothing and i was really good very disappointing. I gotta get mark on the air. We're going to talk about this meantime list week i had on the countess of ross alison The seventh lord ross's wife of about fifty five years. I'm going to say and we talked about mary. We talked about an who was into word culture. There's a rose that was the the An i think at the end of ross or lady. Ross or something. Ross rose There's some magnolias on the grounds that were created through hybridization of this and i had a fabulous is supposed to be there an hour to ninety minutes. We were there from said of two to three seven o'clock at night. Seventy world champion trees that but it nice bit for another jeopardy question about for a you fans of the cry. Oh wait a second. Don't go there. Because that is my next question. And i want to get into that with you in a little bit of depth so i just wanna finish up with this and then we're going to talk about the crown so in any event having watched this and only had the question being in eighteen sixty nine mary ward was the first to be killed in this way and the answer is what is car accident. Now all of you when you see that episode net flicks You'll know that happened in the town of birr in county awfully and it was all family related to The ross all those lords of ross including dating back to lord ross. Third lord ross. Who invented the telescope. We're gonna take a quick break and come right back. Because i've got two more one more step before we get to the series the crown and this is and. I'm glad you wanna talk about it. Because i wasn't sure if you did don't leave me.

A he's like the soothsayer who knows better still remembers all and is also very much an insider in many ways to so much of what we talk about because he is a first cousin once removed because his father was actually the first cousin of winston churchill and That's a story. We've talked about on the air on more than one occasion. So whenever there are kind of like royal dealings. Going on mark as my go-to man. And so i was explaining in the last segment about how frustrated i was that alex trebek's rest. His soul didn't pick up on the question about mary. Ward being the first person in eighteen sixty nine. The very first person ever to die from a car accident and didn't say anything about how it took place at berg castle. B i double are not be you double are like aaron burr. Burr castle in county awfully ireland. Didn't say anything about ireland. Didn't say anything about anything he said you got the answer right onto the next and so That troubled me and it troubled me enough. That i couldn't get mary ward off my mind and i decided to do a little reading about mary ward and i went online and i found out something i didn't know before i knew a lot about mary ward and i knew the answer the question i knew all the collateral information about where it happened when it happened. How it happened And i knew all of that because of the introduction my friend mark leslie live on the line with us from county dublin. Now introducing me to the seventh lord. Ross and last week if you go to abrahams dot net you can click on here. The interview i did with the countess of ross alison Who is married to the seventh lord. Ross okay so. I did some reading about mary. Just to commune with the answer. And the question on jeopardy and in reading. I found something. I didn't know before and that was that. Mary wart Who was related to all the people at ross castle At birr castle where. The ross family had a domain Mary married henry ward whose family owns castle ward and castle ward is located in county down a pretty much on the very eastern side of northern ireland. And i've been there dozens of times. Wonderful interesting place. It said that she didn't live there on a full-time basis. But that she and her husband henry would visit and stay there weekends and holidays and whatnot and that was a big surprise to me. And i wondered more if you had any insights into that whole relationship with castle ward because apparently. Mary came along well after. The very strange building was built where the couple that owned. It couldn't decide together on the architectural style so half. The building is gothic or georgian after gothic and the other half. The building is neo. Classical architecture did you have any insights into that. I i know very little about costlo would other that. Mary ward who as you rightly. Say was victorian figure with her ancestoral. Hogue would be built in the middle of the eighteenth century at the height of the style wall between gothic revival and classical so. The house used likely completely classical at the back and complete gothic front or vice versa side of the argument. 'cause obviously both sides of the family chose the site that they liked as being the proper front interesting thing about it is. They drove the architect mad and by the took two years to build and when it was finished. The couple was already separated on their way to divorce. Where did you take a real quick break. We're gonna come back. Because i wanted to talk about the series. He's the crown and if you're watching the crown. People burke hassle is going to play a very small but very interesting juicy little bit of information and it takes place in. I think it's episode seven of season. Two if i've got my numbers right because i didn't write it down when i saw i just went. Oh my god this.

Abrams and on air traveling companion. David is b. Oh it's travel with stephanie. Abrams hi have on the line with me. My very dear friend. Mark leslie. And i think of him so often because of so many things about five years ago. I'm going to say. I guess it was in two thousand sixteen. We were at the beach hill country house in derry northern ireland during our christmas new year's breakaway that we did there at that house nine years in a row where we stay anywhere from four to seven nights a during christmas new year's week mainly because three of those nights there is in a hotel open a lot of the republic of ireland and northern ireland. Hotels close up at christmas time. So unless maybe you're in a place like dublin or galway. even there. there are hotels just close for christmas. Nobody's working nobody so they gave us the keys to the house rent said. Don't worry we'll take care of you. And we were the only guest at this marvelous huge country house and we did that nine years in a row and i loved every minute of that special retreat. One of those years i think was the debut year of the first season of the crown and we saw it while in northern ireland. And when we were out one day later that week and we met some folks and the subject came up The locals kind of wrinkled up their noses like they smelled something terrible and indicated that you know it's all poppycock and you know it's not real in it's you know that s chablis and awful and you know i think they were quite offended by season. One it if they were offended by that way they got the season two so in any event. I'm not i don't remember. I think it wasn't season. Two could be somewhere the beginning of season three. But i think it's in season two of the crown that princess margaret queen elizabeth's sister is falling in love with anthony armstrong jones. Who's a photographer. And after in the story. I made the connection to as they announce it in the film. He is A sibling of the seventh lord. Ross who we were just talking about. Brendan parsons who. i was. Just on the phone with last week. And then since. I've interviewed him twice since we spent hours and hours and hours together. We featured him in episode seven castle hopping of my tv show which you'll find archive it s abrahams dot net. All these people. And i. i don't remember. I sorta have a fuzzy inkling mark that you may have once told me that. He was a sibling of tell. You tell you story. The museum. If i may. Which is our local doctor gus. Lock village latching. Caliban village doctor fits gillespie died. Just recently had a very lavish son wedding back in the mid nineteen fifties and because event tech which rare enough. They decided to get a society photographer for tatler magazine. Dublin come up and take the wedding photos so my grandfather put on his best kill. I put on my best tartan trousers. I was one of the page boys and very sensitive ozzy young photographer mccabe posts and places all very nicely as it took quite wonderful photographs of all of us and the cholesterol is under benefits. And he's rather well-spoken. Should we have him have lunch with the bus drivers. You know with with the stars or should we let him in with the wedding guests. This identity that we've announced places served but wisely the bride. Said i like him. I think the photos are going to be one right. Just have a feeling about very well-spoken. Let him have lunch with the other guests so he was allowed in the have stand up for lunch with the other guests and charming young man. You know blahdy blahdy blah and then the next week we saw him splashed all over. The lakers is newly engaged to princess margaret so they were rather clouds. They hadn't sent him downstairs to have taxi with the bus dri- guy lunch with the bus and taxi drivers hilarious. Well worse was to follow because only a few walks after the wedding was a whole commotion because nobody was supposed to know. But the armstrong jones and prince mock princess margaret at that honeymoon in birr castle way inevitably because of irish tall sips of secrecy. Rodak you know. Member of the royal family had ever spent any time in ireland forever. It's quite a common event now but he was unheard of and the giveaway was the. Ira started cutting trees down around the edge of the state. Sing royalty get out and Times and two they had the wrong boyfriend because margaret's previous Counted and but the i. R. intelligence didn't oversee read the equivalent of cutler. Hello magazine dole. Big slogans demanding. The her previous love should quit. Island once was a bit pawtucket and she heard this and wondered whether they were right to she rigged crank telephone system united. You couldn't dial numbers direct. The she dials attempts to castle gets to the village post office where the village postmistress failure lamin conversations. And what canadian could you put me through to kozel. And she said who should. I say is calling. They said the que- the queen. Where do they go on to that. The postmistress rigs up laura the some shots claiming that she secretive ignorant so anyway. That's quite possibly the first family of irish signs of current gossip. Actually i think you visited my cousin. Leonie and alex seen in ord volkov's alex great musician but before we go before we jump cross. The and armstrong jones is big. Treat was to be brought tea and be photographed up on the ramp up. Costs are looking over. Go away so that was another major part of their honeymoon. Actually oh i didn't know that part but but you know before we got into any depth on that because again another special. Thank you to having introduced me to lay any a leslie finn Married to alec finn. Who those of you into irish music. Probably know well I wanted to talk a little bit more about It was a very short piece inserted into what i'm pretty sure was episode seven of season two of the crowned in which it's mentioned that anthony armstrong jones was the first born from the first marriage of the woman who then married six ross. She she was she was late. She was lady ross. Hang on a second. She was lady. Ross not to be confused with the countess of ross. I just interviewed last week so And what they say in the crown which i found a bit disturbing it. They had the character. Anthony armstrong jones telling the story and what he says in the crown is that you know he was really treated like a you know the abandoned child because he was the son of his mother's non aristocratic first husband and then there were other children born after an and The current brendan parsons seventh. Lord ross who i met. Who's in episode seven of my tv show castle hopping whose wife interviewed last week. That he was really treated he was the high one on the totem pole and so when they travelled by train somewhere The current lord parsons as a boy was traveling in first class. The next born was traveling in second-class and anthony armstrong jones was traveling in third class. And i didn't even know that. European and irish in uk trains had a third class. I only knew about first-class and second-class so he felt like he was treated. Like you know the the. The derelict picked off the street somewhere. And i you know that that just blew that whole thing blew me away because you know there's a whole side of that family. I hadn't heard about and i'm sitting in the comfort of my own living room having the film. The crown series on netflix. Giving me this little update care to comment all well. They the family could craves. Be quite a lot granda because they have a wonderful waxwork in the castle. Which i'm sure you showed six year old. Princess victoria which had been made by john conroy.

Khalsa john. conroy who is a lover steward and arranged all excise and is the bad guy in the phil The young victoria and john conroy was so obsessed victoria his child that he had this wonderful waxwork got an had actual removed head. Cussing so that the waxwork has the real princess. Victoria's half and john conroy. Son married into the paulson's family. And i said you could do a wonderful reality show. Where the climactic moment is that. The dna of that hair should be tested to see. Is it hanover. Half or is it conroy. Half because the duke of wellington who was the prime minister at the time when he hoods that the victoria was going to be knows. Successor afoot william falls. Her uncle that.

I'll share a secret with you in my early married life. One of the things that kept me really happy was planning the next weekend breakaway and this is bc before children. And so i would plan a weekend getaway for every four to six weeks and we do lots of drive market road trips.

And so over the last more than a decade. I've had on the various people. They've had as general manager of loch earn resort in county for monarch northern ireland. A place very much associated with the famous young amazingly skilled talented golfer. Rory mcilroy and it's also a place that they were very proud to host. I don't remember who the g seven or the g eight. it's however many people showed up. I think it was g. Seven could have been the g. Eight what do i know anyway. There's this wonderful picture on the grounds outside. Just outside of the main building of loch earn resort in northern ireland is a picture with autumn urkel in it and President obama is in. The picture is very cool and Once upon a time we put the tv on and the channel it was on was showing a hotel bedroom turned out it was even the bachelor or the bachelorette i forget which one a show. I didn't normally watch just happened to be on that channel. But when when the screen lit up i looked at my husband and said we've slept in that bedroom but i can't tell you where it is.

Walsh the general manager of loch earn resort in county fermanagh. And if tanya cathcart happens to listen to this in a podcast or archived audio at our website or any podcast during the world She is If things haven't changed i would imagine she still is the head of tourism for county for mona and she does a wonderful job and the first time i met her was at loch earn resort Probably around two thousand eight or nine or something like that and maybe it was a little later than that but we managed to keep in touch all these years for my audience. You know how. Many general managers i interview and you know how fewer women when there is a woman who is general manager. You already know how skilled and talented and competent. That person is because the competition for positions in especially fine hotels is fierce and that sector of hotel. Employment is dominated by men. And i think part of it has to do that. That a lot of women Are not up for the challenge of giving the kind of devoted care and attention that a general manager has to give because being the general manager of a hotel means. The hotel comes before birthdays. Anniversaries and two children are in a school play. If there's something that's going on at the hotel it takes precedence and you know you have to really be passionate about being a general manager because it doesn't work. Otherwise am i right on that joanne. Right you make me smile when you say. It comes up of birthdays anniversaries.

Feel to it And then as you continue past that main building where you'll find the restaurant that You know the bar the lounge the library As you continue down that road There are these individual buildings that have accommodations with you. Know several bedrooms or one bedroom They're built in a way that the building can be shared And it has like a common. It's all its own common living room. And whatever and we've actually stayed there on one of our adventures to lock earn resort We took with us. Those of you in berkshire county will know well David is be our senior producer. And you know him of radio fame and berkshire county and eric green from whoopi. Who came to do All the sound that we needed to be taken care of so we had our producer and our sound engineer off. We went and they were expecting to play golf. We're talking with if you're just joining us joanne walsh. Gm at locker resort. They were going to play golf. When the first nine holes of the nick faldo course were finished and they had an early morning tee off time at something like i don't know eight or eight thirty in the morning and it was in march so it probably was march of two thousand eight. I guess it was. It was frost on the grass and for insurance reasons. They couldn't go out and play. That was sad. They were so disappointed. But anyway i got them playing at saint andrews so wasn't all bad but and they played it a couple of other courses ireland but in any event that was very exciting thing because it was a couple of years the first nine holes were finished on that course after the two thousand seven opening of locker and resort. So let's talk a bit about the actual physical plant. You've got the first main building and then you've got these individual buildings that look like well. They look like the windmills make knows a little turret that might metal hall carrot around. They sit right on the lake. The very popular. Yes and robbery but like you know people when you look at a map you'll find if lower lough. Erne is the most northern part of the lake and upper loch earn is the most southern part of -sarily understand. But i don't understand fish that's swim upstream either. So in any event loch earn resort abuts lower lough earn which is in the most part of the lake and the views are spectacular. Even from your dining room you know to be able to look out and see the lake and you know. It's currently banned taken fabulous. Let's talk about those buildings. I we stayed in one. That had i think three bedrooms. They were on different levels like office spiral staircase because it's as big like a turret of a castle but there were three individual bedrooms shared living room space that we would veg out about high seemed are they. They were all different sizes. No yeah we have a mixture. We've got eleven two bedrooms and we've got sorry we've got eleven three bedrooms and we've got fourteen two bedrooms so making we bought twenty five lodges so we call them a luxury like side largest and they have. They'll a kitchen and dining facilities and additional lounge area almost like asleep and then you'll have three individual portal rooms that are accessed privately keycard and they all on three with the same up in separate shower mobile vanity unit. They have in each of the hotel rooms. So you're still guessing really a hotel room but in a large in an and logic combination which is almost like little home of your own results you can then dine with us in any of our restaurants and you can also use a spa the leisure facilities on the well especially now. I mean. i don't remember having you know kind of kitchen facility available. Because i wouldn't have been interested in going near it. Especially when the food at locker has always been asleep over the top fabulous but today. There's a good chance. I would check in and i would never go into your dining room. Even socially distanced whatever you know. We have been socially distanced since march sixteenth twenty twenty. It's now october. I mean we're practically in november. And i haven't been in the company of anybody except being at some distance walking through dublin airport getting on the plane flying business class so there were only six people in the cabin when we came home so social distancing was not a problem picking up her car rental car so we could drive to another airport where our car was because aer lingus was flying to boston but not the hartford and managing to go through all that and staying healthy and so You know. I'm not afraid to go places but i wanna go places. That are atypical. From the kind of things i would be looking at. I would have been looking for a year ago. And so very appealing to me to think that a family could go and take over turret have three bedrooms have a kitchen area where you can prepare things and all over ireland people in ireland and northern ireland. And if you're in for monta go find the as the store. Aspca by walmart by the way they are wonderful stores and you can go online order your food. They call it. Click and collect and you drive up and you can your food and you don't have to have any contact with anybody and bring it back and do what you need to do. And frankly if you're traveling with children it's the light that our family. Nobody was on the same breakfast schedule. You know there was somebody got up at six and somebody else got up at eight and my husband get up around nine and i get up about eleven because i'm a night person. I'm up here for the night. I sleep like morning so having that kind of facility that the turret rooms pardon and also when we reopened on the seventeenth of july after four months of lockdown when we reopened. I'm we're selling twenty five lodges as individual self-catering homes. We also offer now by a fabulous meal. We also offer a take away show. You can dinner for your family. We can do this on. Yeah we do wedges with garlic bread and it means that yes. You have an opportunity in in like you stephanie. I don't want to go my holidays and koci the but it does mean that we can offer takeaway facility from the restaurants just to give you that extra feeling of safety in case. You're not comfortable in a restaurant. Well it's more lewis and by the way i. I spoke with no mcmeel by telephone in october of two thousand two and met him face to face in january of two thousand three because we were the hosts of a wedding in our family that we organized and sorted out and no was the executive chef at the castle is try the five years before iraq earn started rolling out casa leslie county monaghan which is where paul mccartney married the second wife the beast. Yes yes and so you know when we were picking out a place when somebody that you see us celebrity with the opportunity that they can buy anything they want has chosen something. It's kind of a good indicator i mean. It's like rory mcilroy hanging out around a really good indication that some goods happening here. So and no was the chef. So that's when. I first met noel. Mcmeel author off the cookbook. Irish pantry. avoid. I have two copies. I'm happy to say one day. I'll give one to somebody. I love but i don't need anymore honestly. I so rarely really get into doing the kinds of wonderful things that are in that book major during lockdown down no without posting at some of these recipes on instagram for people do his banana. Bread would try. That puts a new phase in states during lockdown. We certainly did hear. Everybody was making banana bread. I was living in ballygawley and karen castle at corner cottage. And i made to and you know why because we buy. We order the food from as an order. Bananas and the last two always got overripe. And it broke my heart so i bake banana bread making. Yes indeed. so now we've talked about the accommodations in the turret the turrets on the property that again people. They remind me of the windmills in in mecca nose. Or you know other places where they're they're meant to remind you of terrorists on the castle but hey they're lovely and lovely inside to stay. I really enjoyed when we stayed there. And then there's the main building and there are accommodations in that building including the nick faldo suite which was that was featured in that bachelor or bachelorette episode that when they went to locker. They they did the whole show. Different places in ireland or at least most of it. I think and that particular series. I'm sure many of my listeners. Know what i'm talking about. Even if i don't but the main building has it's that tall building but they so speaking nine veteran criminal penalty. What's the grand total of accommodations hundred twenty rooms. And what's the heads in beds. Total count two hundred and forty accommodation. Beds okay so you know. It's still a good size for the potential of a golf outing of a company of border of direct. Something as showing love big wedding staff name would do of coke days per for companies and car companies on media companies in island raking. Come right back talking with joanne.

Where there are photo galleries. There are lots of photo galleries about ireland as well and the many that are in progress and i do hope since we're talking about northern ireland that you'll go to my blog and you will read the in memoriam that i wrote honoring the life of john hume who was the hundred ninety eight nobel peace prize winner for his significant work that brought about the good friday agreement ending the troubles in northern ireland and You'll find that information. You know the story there. I had the good fortune of being introduced to him by a hotelier in northern ireland. Patsy kane who used to own country house which was in the neighborhood of where john hume lived and So i really got to know him as a friend. Not just as somebody that i happen to pass in the night so let's talk a little bit. joanne about the other features and amenities Certainly the golfing is a really important thing. And i don't know that we need to say much more about that. Because the association with nick faldo the association with rory mcilroy You know that kind of says it all people. It's a place worth your time if you're a golfer but also we have three hundred two coffees. So we have the foul coast of their which at nick designed. I'm accuweather if he stayed with last year when open was on here in island and he came down. Stay with us and he played a covered. Fan forty was with us. He was actually posing for one of the american sports channel. So we've got castle human core so to parkland courses faldo coast as and named of in the top ten courses to play in island of ireland. So obviously we got loved every hole and behold got most spectacular view of the asu. Now was that built and owned by locker in resort or is that that was actually on the original ground that we built the result so kathleen clubhouse indeed there with your capital. Human capital doesn't exist anymore There is an old coat in hill. You know when you come across. The drawbridge daphne and you look to your right and you can see. The original job coats one of sweets. He's actually named after the dovecote. They've only part standing of the original capital of custody. Suites is named after the architect that designed to him. That was which so. Tell me about your spa. Because i have to imagine. There are some companions of golfers who aren't interested in golfing and could use that time to kind of veg out and rejuvenate now so we do. We have a lot of very popular with the gulf. And so we'll have couples come and play apart from the corporate both days and obviously the societies that come from all over europe we get a lot european-gulf of some you can again within the island-by-island abs. When travel is the way the way it usually is we would get and some americans which play the part time courses and the do. The circe have courses were included on month and but generally post on the recent times. Been allowed the irish coffers. That have been playing with us but they like to come have dinner. Bell play golf one day and then play different the second day. And then you know if they've got any aching muscles in any to sue the aches and pains l. Go in the spa and massage go to city on. Might go to the steam women on and now they might go. Echo comes in. you can't imagine how relaxed you can get you know dealing with some bailey's and bushmills jameson or something. We also have kim of very popular as a new distillery stephanie. Just across the lake from us so we have our own amman jordan on it's called the boatyard hillary and they actually.

Final Four Preview

"Party interruptions. Mike will Tony a store owner has video of a shoplifter stuffing chainsaw down his pants buying that Tony Kornheiser. Here's what you don't want to hear. You don't wanna rolled lithium battery situation. I watched it. I saw the guy stuffed the chainsaw down the fake one though. Would you see it on? I thought on the today show when I was doing my body really real seven eight dollars Manute Bol all chainsaws are eight feet tall. Yeah. Now, you just got a baby chainsaw baby chicks Bisson. Hi, Bob over here and the fit in your pants. PTI boys and girls Friday. We're both here. Yeah. Who has the over under on that? In today's episode Yang. This looks great your come terrible and Patrick Mahomes game for throwing contest with Josh Allen. But we begin today with the loosely anticipated NCAA tournament that resumes tomorrow in Minneapolis who slower teams remain in alphabetical order Auburn. Michigan state, Texas Tech in Virginia will bind you will be there. It's right Michigan status from your conference the big ten, right? And you wife went to Virginia undergrad. Are you expecting a UV? Michigan state final. Yes. I am. And I know it's going to be hard to get there. And this could be double reverse. I just don't know Tony in the case of Auburn. And I I would normally be rooting for my dear friend, Charles Barkley to. They're missing arguably their best player, and it is going to be hard to get over that a second game. You know, there's some coaches who have long believed Dean Smith among them that for the next game that first game without one of your best players you can band together, you can figure out something you can just muscle through that first game without him. Auburn did that. And now you're asking them to go through another game and get through for Jinya. I think that's gonna be difficult. And I just think Michigan the best team of the four. I am. I agree with that. I think the best team in the four and shame on the NCAA for putting Michigan state and Duke and same rining for no, welcome to the lay the law hill and Jay Bilas and j Willert while I'm gonna tell you you. I'm not wanting for Duke when Zaylon Williamson went out he sucked the air out of this tournament. You got to football. He's a transcendent player when he's not there. There are no stars therefore teams without any stars. You got to football school. You got in Virginia a school that has no particular national following got Michigan state, which has been there for a long time. This is a television show, Mike, and I don't know how many people are going to go to their television sets to see these first two games if you don't have million. Yeah. Millions, but not as many millions as spec if you don't have Michigan state in Virginia as they used to say, I pity the poor fool the wants to watch what the insead thrived through in digits fine without LeBron James and not having him. Nobody knew eight runs. Transcend to player out of high school even more transcendent on putting Bergamo did follow had Zion have now they don't have them. And I don't know what the appeal is. I don't know get through them couldn't get through Michigan state terror set on my brand right there. You know, you had to you had the right call, and I love day should never have put them in the same BRAC love Duca wish they were there except couple of big boy teams at last night, the bucks visited Philly and Milwaukee's Janas onto the Kubo put up one of those performances that could make folks rethink everything. His forty five thirteen six assists, five blocks in thirty five minutes. That's wilt stuff right down out the seventy Sixers wrapped up the top seed in the league and suggestive voters take another long hard look at their MVP ballots. It's only a your playoff expectations of him and the books changing. And do you think they'll walk into the Jimmy challenge? The dubs that's way down ROY. And I'm not even going to deal with that now in the playoffs last three months, and I just wanna talk about onto for second. I mean, he's he's not LeBron. He's not Steph is not Kevin Durant. But when you when you lump the young big men together when you have him bead and Karl Anthony towns and Anthony Davis in this kid. I think this kid is the one I would want right now because I think he may be a little bit more versatile in three games. Head to head with Embiid. And Embiid had great numb. He's onto the combo had greater numbers in those three games against the guy. You've got to beat in your conference. He went for forty two points almost sixteen rebounds and eight assists. Everybody says that the center position of the big man position is debt. Those dead with this. No, it's changed a little bit and beans at the top of that with coupon. I think that somewhere in his heart MB came back in part because he's sitting enough. We got to see these guys come back because I think Embiid even if he's a little hurt me ain't scared, but he got beat and onto the couples making me rethink my MVP ballot. And I have one because I've been saying harden, and you know, what harden is greatness had a great season. But if onto the Pupo isn't great every night, and by the way, their second best player, Malcolm branded is not out there. I just I can argue which one of those all, but Tony they are changing my expectations a little bit. I'm not ready to deal with Golden State either. But I'm ready to look at them and say, okay, they beat back the Celtics the Sixers it may start in the second round thing with Indiana. Although I doubt it I think Toronto I think the Celtics are very difficult for everybody. They can if just starting at you starting to move. I've got the best record in the league their impressive. They're they're impressing. His is not. Impressive. And here we go. Mr. you baseball team was again last night. You bullpen imploded again last night three relievers gave up six runs in four count them four innings. The collective bullpen array is now eight point eight six eight three and they have walked nineteen men in twenty one and a third innings will can Joe Madden's job actually be on the line this weekend in Milwaukee. That's what you hear. That's what you hear in Chicago, Chicago Milwaukee circumstance when now Milwaukee seems to be less us one game. There was a tight game that the clip starts and gotten further now, it's not tight Tony. What are they seventy one or something like that Milwaukee is and the cubs have won the opener and lost everything since and mad? They've been on the road the whole time they had is the first home game. It's some point after the because Pittsburgh, but Tony people look at this. And they think that the executives look at Madden and say all this stuff was nice and cute and furry when it worked and now it's not. Not working, and they don't seem to have as much faith as they did in it. And it looks Chicago city where we're Quenneville a guy who won three Stanley Cups and got to the finals at least two maybe three times. He's gone. He was fired. So this is not unprecedent and not even winning coach manager in Chicago. So I'll deal with that second. I of bruiser six one at the moment. Okay. Small correction. It is amazing to me that a guy who wins the World Series after one hundred eight years of not winning a World Series could ever be fired let alone within three seasons each got sees it's like ninety ninety five one ninety five ninety three. Here's a quote from who. I know you think is what it executives all this was in December, quote this year is really reckoning. I feel like we underperformed. You should judge us how we play next year. This is next year and they got one win Richie Justice essay. Essay it says, well, I had Ritchey Justice on. And he said he believes the Joe Madden is on a hot z. He says there was a personality that grew up around Joe Madden. And there's a fought by the upper management people at maddened didn't give enough time to baseball little more time to Madden a little less time baseball, they were all comer resolutely in this year. And be better came roughly one game one in Texas. And now the bull pin can't get out. You and me there's only one worse in the league. Yours yet an ad. Two games three. Thank you. We're we're from three. The only reason we ever talk about the Orioles in recent years to make fun of which brings me to Chris Davis. The one time all star still being paid like a slugger slump doesn't even big into describe the downward spiral that has led to him going for seventeen this season over thirty eight dating back to last season. Boos from the home fans in Baltimore. When he strikes out standing ovation for his replacement. Baltimore manager, Brandon. Hyde says he'll stay with Davis of spots. But keep them in the line of what he can Tony is the rookie manager right to stand by his slugger rookie manager has no standing whatsoever. Nobody has ever heard of this guy. Look we've been to a lot of games in Baltimore. They're not a hypercritical crowd. When they turn on you like this. You have to listen to that. This may well be over for all the money that he is still old like seventy or eighty million three million a year for the next. Four years, including this one whatever he is old you have to eat some of that you may have to eat most of that. But it becomes after while a mental health issue. You gotta get this guy out of there. This is when you're cheering peach hitters forgetting. This is this is this a bad circumstance. I would remind people Chris Davis in two thousand thirteen fifty three homers hundred thirty eight RBM another season. A forty forty seven hundred seventeen he can't okay? Wait a minute. If up to eighty this is about launch angle and people doing stupid things could've mentioned during the cubs. They chase pitting co pitching and hitting coach. And that's why had chance to everybody ball changed with the wrong way. You mean to tell me that a guy who that many home runs and earned this contract? Now just forgot how to hit. I don't know. If he forgot how to hit. I say you look at something like that in a city like Baltimore, which is not Philadelphia. It's not the best thing for everybody. Concerned. Now may very well be Chris Davis to find another place to play. So I think a lot of money a lot most of it. There is the tantalizing possibility in the wind that young guns, Patrick, Mahomes and Josh Allen may have throwing contest to see who's got the longer arm. Here's what my home said. And I quote, no one that I've known has been able to throw a ball farther than me. I've never seen Josh though. And. Ersan, but maybe next off season we can set something up is going to take at least eighty five yards to win on quote. We'll bond is something you would like to see. And would it have any meaning to you know, meaning and I cover football at a time, and you need to we're reporters. Jesse go to practice coaches, particularly nudity invited gin and guys this stuff. Like this every day football practices weren't so serious. And we're so plotted out second-by-second by the Bill checks the world that there wasn't some fun. I remember being in a raider practice one day, and this sort of conscious was waged between believe tight end and the quarterback. And this was it was fun to watch. I don't care about it anymore out think it means anything. But I was like the fact that Mahomes still willing to do this kind of thing. So I assume that the best you've ever seen as John Elway. Yes. And I would say Jeff, George, and I used to watch Jeff towards warm up, and he was to football in warm ups with Steph curry is. Yes, that didn't make a of water I'm going to control it out. I'm gonna change as much as you think. John Elway is the greatest thing in the golden boy came along. Jeff, George ri-, Jeff George with half things do hiccup later, but let me allergy Rory McElroy can drive a golf ball three hundred thirty three hundred forty yards. But the guy the long drive contests can drive a four hundred yards difference is he can't play. Right. So I don't really care who throws it longer. Throw. An here's your out Mahomes can play and he's a long dry. So you think I think no one probably in the league and throw it as far as Pat Mahoney. I think you can find a guy in a street corner somewhere who can throw it one hundred who can throw it one hundred. I don't know if he's quarterback. I think in throw it one hundred but is not being parka grunk thrilling, he would eat the football. Let's take a break coming up on the eve of the final fours. Anyone else surprise? A truce Berle is still coaching offer. Reggie Miller said crispier ran best practice one day recently. He's ever seen. We're going to have to say what is does that others? I think it's been awhile since interruption is brought to you by horizon chosen by experts chosen by you. The always will too short to play basketball. But will never listen. We'll let his work ethic. Do the talking for him. Always in the gym always running drills will new where there was a will. There was a way and he was will. But then. After a second child was born. He realized the pros were all way better than him. So we'll give up and buried his high tops in a tearful ceremony. But one day he heard that gyco could save money on car insurance. So he switched and saved a bunch, which was awesome. In a story. We broke in our first segment the final four is tomorrow. And here to help us break down our great friend Jay Bilas with his expensive new tie that we heard about off air. Let's start with this awkward lost Schumer, aqui key. And they still beat Kentucky. Is this a one shot deal? Or can they sustain that without him? Well, they can sustain it. But it's going to be really difficult because Chuma KiKi was their best defender certainly their most versatile. They could put him on anybody look without Juma they wound up giving up what twenty eight points to PJ Washington still wound up winning the game. But he would have been a perfect defender to put on down very hunter Virginia who's allowed repack and is going to be the most difficult matchup for Auburn. So without Juma. They lose the shooter. They lose their best defender, and they lose a guy who's an excellent rebounder, both ends of the floor that losing a lot seems a lot for Jinya. Geez. You know is very deliberate. Auburn is up temple to say. The least does anybody having vantage when it comes to temple. And could you see one of those teams forcing its will on the other? I think it's more likely Michael to be Virginia sort of the old axiom that it's easier to slow game down that it is speed went up and Virginia plays most of its games. If not if not the overwhelming majority of its tempo, and it's really hard to get them to play faster. So I think we'll see this game played at a slower pace. And one of the things about Virginia. That's really interesting is is Virginia places pack line defense. It gets a lot of discussion about it. But one of the things Virginia does when they when they put up a shot they sent three sometimes four guys back in transition. So it's hard to get a quick score against them going. The other way the problem is they're going to have to get back and defend the three point line which a little bit differently. Usually defending the basket and building out they gotta they gotta start at the three point line than build back in K just about a year ago with Bruce Pearl could certainly lose his job at Auburn. What do you think he's thinking? Now, I think he's thinking that he needs to take advantage of this that that Bruce Pearl has had a lot of things go on in his career all the way back to the Dion Thomas. When he was an assistant to Tom Davis and the accusations and the tape with Illinois and cheating and all that business. So that followed him around for a long long time. Gotta put him out of the game for awhile. And then he was out of the game with his show cause for really a barbecue. And not being forthcoming about it to the NC double A. So he's got a wonderful opportunity here. And he's got a good team. But I'll tell you with all the stuff that's hanging over college sports now. And honestly, it's not just basketball it in other areas as well. Nobody cares. Like, nobody cares. And and so you just keep playing man because the this is going to they're going to be some people caught up in this FBI thing, they're gonna lose their jobs. But but the truth is fans don't really care. Let's get something you'll care about probably that late game between Texas Tech. And Michigan state. Reggie Miller says something Jay that we found fascinating. He went to Texas Tech practice. And he said it was the best practice. He had ever seen which leads me to ask you what what is Chris beard doing there? Perhaps others are not. I don't know that he's doing anything that others are not. But Chris a really good coach. And they run good stuff. Like, he's a Bob Knight disciple in a lot of ways a lot of different mentors. But Bob Knight's, probably the one that's been the most influential. So he runs a lot of motion offense. And it's a lot of stuff where they have room to cut all the cutters and they're screening action. They the cutters are going to the ball or to the basket. So it's really difficult to guard is really difficult to scout. And then he I think he has fun. They're very serious about the way they go about their business. But after their businesses done, they decide they're going to enjoy themselves and have fun. And I think I had. No baseball, coach said having fun is doing hard things. Well, I think that's a mantra Texas Tech is ad. And look there are bunch of coaches out there that run great practices about Tae crispier to certainly among them. He he's terrific. So we'll get you out of here on this on my podcast this morning. I had a friend Pat forty of Yahoo. And he looked at this. And he said, look Michigan state is the best team here with that in mind that he said that I will ask you would you be surprised if anyone else won this tournament? No. I would not be surprised. And I I mean, it's Michigan state may very well be the best team coming into this. I I rank Virginia head of a head of Michigan state. Not only were the number one seed, they've only lost three games. All your long Virginia's the real deal. I happen to think it's going to be Michigan state in Virginia in the final. But Michigan state matches up well Virginia. But the one thing they do better as they rebound better. And that's where they've beaten Virginia the past on the glass. I don't know if this year it's going to be as pronounced of a difference. Because. Very good rebounding Virginia team, and it's one that can really shoot the ball for multiple positions. So there's a different Virginia team that we've seen. I think for genius the best team here. But I favor Michigan state to win it because the rebounding thank you very much Jay preciado. Nice tie. We'll wait and see what you unveil during the Tourangeau pricey that is with one last break, but still to come the New York Jets, get new uniforms will von we'll tell you whether they are a fashion do or don't then Bilas ties. Trevor Bauer gets yanked out of his own. No hitter. This is trending Terry Francona who we love that. He made the right call. You think could have spelled Sania before yesterday nine not or narrowly dressed the stylish come on. Now not. Not as. People have to forty six birthday ferrall Parrella multi decorated singer, songwriter music producer and who knew trained washing design trained wear his song a couple of years ago, the impossibly catchy. Happy was nominated for an Oscar. He's got the giants smokey bear hat sports connection dubious. But PTI connection he dropped out northwestern, he went realizing there was a better life who are and went directly into the music business. He's beautiful get lucky. He's gonna hold list of northwestern. Not so happy anniversary Chris Webber on the state twenty six years ago, Weber infamously called for time out that Michigan didn't have which to technical sealed. The victory for Dean Smith North Carolina win the national title. Chris Webber never won the national title with the fair five nor did he ever would've titling the NBA fine player in announcer. But the rings that we all thought he would get of escaping taken away from the one that Sacramento would have had. Because they outplayed the Lakers postseason, and you know, that happy trails the jets uniforms, the new jets uniforms or a brighter green and the old their helmets and green as well. As someone who grew up loving the jets and respecting the classics implicit of their uniforms these uniforms stink. Honestly, Joe Nemeth world white helmets. There's no highlight in the fan Chai's sixty year history other than Joe Nemeth wagging his index finger why are you going to green helmets that looks like the green virgin with the Cleveland Browns are doing hideous one era where on Joel Madden's? Wind told us with the cubs ninety seven one zero three ninety to ninety five you're gonna fire that guy. Really, I didn't think I'm we go still Jerry Stackhouse agreed to a six year deal to coach fan of accents. Jerry Stackhouse is going to be too thick. Trevor Bauer got pulled up throwing seven no hidden. He was okay with that. Are you hundred seventeen pitches? He's okay. I'm okay. But I would rather see say Josh Rosen is expected to report to the cardinals off season program on Mondays that's difficult. We get the draft to train seconds beat Lipscomb for the United championship. That's a big win for shocker smart. And that's what you say. It's the NIT though. And it's against a small.

"Pardon the interruption Israel Gutierrez and I love hosting the show with my humble trend Frank. Please do not look directly at come on man or the magic is happening right here. Actually prefer not look directly at you actually look like changes related to show together. I mean it's been a whole year. Did you hear they want an Emmy Award. Oh doesn't get one little one. We were part of the lesson on the rock awesome. Well welcome to P._T._I.. Tony Mike on their annual yoga retreats on joined by my great friend. The wanted only is he. Honestly that's more than I deserve. All all right. We'll start with golf in the British. Open is back in Northern Ireland for the first time in sixty eight years and an American not named Tiger Woods or Brooks kept is in. I J B homes who's best finished at a major is third at the two thousand sixteen British open finds himself in first with a one-shot lead hometown favourite rory mcilroy recorded a quadruple bogey on the first hole then finished with a triple bogey kept had his usual quiet but strong round and then of course there's tiger vogue eighteen to finish plus seven and a tie for one hundred forty fourth place izzy. What was your biggest takeaway from round number one honestly my biggest takeaway is that they zapped a little bit of the fun early on you mentioned Rory mcelroy the hometown favourite the favorite in the tournament in general quadruple bogey right off the bat and then tiger with a grimace with a grimace on the first is hurt? He totally told everybody hey. I'm not going to be right. I mean he told us before the tournament that wasn't GonNa be right but then that proved hung in there for four or five holes and then the wheels fell off and he said afterward hey I can't move well. I can't shape the ball well. I'm really sore. This is how it's going to be and this is how it's going to be for awhile and so if you look back and think about what am I gonNA come through to make that master to get that Masters Win. It's going to seem so much more remarkable. If this is the tiger woods that we still get on a regular and the back with the weather there Northern Ireland I think that's impacting him so now he's probably knocking to make the cut it might not even play a second round some of the things that he was saying afterwards. He's GonNa get treatment but you mentioned rory. Here's a guy that when he was sixteen shot the course record there at the scores a sixty one now as a thirty year old he shoots a seventy nine in the first round and then of course Brooks Kepco who made a big deal ricky Elliott is his caddy and this is a guy. That's been a thirty year member at the club Brooks kept. Go wants to win this tournament right now. He's two shots off the lead so he's going to be dangerous. He's right where we thought he would. He remains the big story the intrigue here if he wins this it's four out of eight for him and major five out of ten for him. In majors he is tiger woods like not as interesting maybe yet but if he keeps winning at least breeds some live in turn J. B. homes by the way who's been onto Ryder Cup teams. He's in first place right now. Hits the ball walks and maybe he'll have a chance this week we'll just last week. The Houston Rockets and okay see thunder reminded us all that any contract can be moved in the N._B._A.. The thunder however are looking to make magic happened twice and it's no surprise Chris Paul's contract act and presumably his reputation are making another relocation tricky so frank who's at worse for if C. P.. Three stays in okay so it's going to be worse for Chris Paul because at this stage of his career he wants to play for contending team but he's going to have to improve his value a a little bit. I think some of the criticism at Chris Paul has been a little unfair. It's really more about his contract his age in the fact that he hasn't been able to stay healthy. You mentioned it. They moved the contract once it's difficult to move it a second time and you know the date is a lot of these free agents at signed by December fifteen. That's when you can move them so I think he's going to spend the first couple of months in Oklahoma City but let's be real here with Chris Paul. Is it entirely about his contract. I don't think so it's very much about his reputation about the fact that he got Blake Griffin upset with with them as teammates. He's got James Harden upset with him as teammates and what's the payoff for him or Western Conference finals one time where he got hurt again. I think other teams are looking at it and saying what is Chris Paul Worth to be. I think he can still obviously give twenty and ten if he's putting in his sort of point guard position if you look at his numbers per thirty six last year with James Harden off the floor they were great. They were all star numbers twenty two and ten basically but people aren't willing to put up with the nonsense the butting heads and everything and you think the fact that he's with a relatively relatively young team and now he'll be in question leader the ball will be in his hands and he did play in Oklahoma City when he was with the New Orleans Hornets at the time Hurricane Katrina had the team relocated to Oklahoma City so he knows is a he doesn't WanNa be there but you think you like the fact that he'll the leader of the ball will be in his hands. It would all be an act really if it what because he's here to win like the talk before he got to Houston was Oh never made it out of the second round. He needs to win a high level. If this okay see team you know they've got some pieces with him. Gallinari Stephen Adams Dennis Schroder they can maybe be an eight seed yeah but what does that do for Chris Paul really if he repairs reputation over the course of the season maybe next year there's more trade possibilities for him but it doesn't seem like a very good and there's a lot of technical stuff with stretch provision but that might. To be able to fit in the salary cap what he considered doing a buyout but I think he's going to stay on that roster till December without looks like all right Celtics President Danny Aines loss kyrie Irving Al Horford and free agency while signing Kemba Walker and his cantor in fact age called those two newest Celtics his top targets. That's interesting since age admitted that he wanted to resign Horford and said that perhaps Al Horford would've stayed if he knew Kimba would sign with them right Izzy Dany convince you that signing kanter and Kemba was planning for the south well. I'll say this age new right around the time when Kyrie Irving said I don't owe anybody believe that this off season was going to be about spin. He knew he wasn't getting Kyrie Irving back. He had to try to piece together a team. That can win a championship. Kemba Walker is a great piece for that. He is arguably a better not arguably. Here's a better teammate. If you talk to everybody else around the League way better teammate then Kyrie Kyrie Irving I think the Al Horford loss came as a surprise to them but if you look at that roster of Hayward word has a big year coming back and he ended pretty against the Pacers anyway if tatum eight has a really good year I think can really bring this group together here but I do think that Horford losses the win. It stinks. It's it's a bit of revisionist history right now by Danny because we know what they wanted. They wanted Anthony Davis. That's all those assets that they were collecting. They were hoping to get Anthony Davis. They get him Kyrie. Irving likely would stay but al Horford they wanted him and he wanted to stay the problem was they weren't going to give him for years. So Al Horford is important to that team amy's great in the Locker Room. He plays both ends of the court. He's going to be he's terrific for a point guard and he's going to help out Philadelphia. The problem was they weren't going to go more than two years. So Al Horford left is he knowing that he was getting a four year deal from somebody out there but it wasn't going to be the celtics any age might still look like a winner here because if you look at the eastern conference in depleted some obviously Toronto's he doesn't have Jimmy Butler anymore that team again with Kemba Walker as their centerpiece as your Locker Room fixture the guy that brings people together that could be member of the no fun that Marcus Morris was talking about they could have a ton of fun this year they could win fifty plus games and that would be the ultimate indictment of Kyrie Irving as a teammate if they do better without him strictly but he has kemp is a better team and exactly Kemba is a much more likable guy. He's going to embrace everyone and cancer is smart to he takes number eleven which is then. He says I want to be the guy that aware because he's kind of making fun of a Kyri did with that commercial so both those guys kind of one the Dan the press covers but Danny the inch. That's your plan A. I'm not exactly doesn't know anybody bleep. That's right. I'm not sure about you but the last thing I remember about college football with Clemson rolling tied for another title a beat down so surprisingly thorough there appeared to be no question the Tigers collegiate kings yet Bam linebacker Dylan Moses says Georgia is still tougher. They'll save is making excuses for the loss frank of the tide delusional it well first of all. This isn't really an Alabama way of doing things especially on Media Day having one of your players talking about a team that you lost to saying that will Georgia was the better team that we played you lost by twenty eight points in the national championship game in since two thousand fifteen they've lost two games to S._E._C.. Opponents and two games in the national championship game to Clemson. I'm just surprised at Nick Sabin in a very bill belichick Kinda way wants his team not to get involved in this stuff and here's Alabama coming off a loss talking like this. It was surprising. It's the easiest thing in the world to do you were humbled. You lost by four touchdowns. You need that motivation. You do not WanNa poke the bare. Just shut up. Don't say a thing worked your way up to being Alabama again having that confidence and maybe if you meet them in the national title game again though semifinals you can actually come out on top this time the thing that bothers me the most and this is a Nick Sabin thing for a guy who's got so much of a track record. You can't really say anything negative about him. He seems to come up with excuses for himself. All the time. He used to talk about the transfer pool well how that hurt him or the players really really focused on the N._F._l.. And how that hurt them come bowl season or come championship season and now he talked about the five coaches that left his staff after last. We're looking for another job. They were to distract. They didn't have enough focus now. ooh That's the reason he lost the EPA Clemson by four touchdowns. Semi rebate did not have a good media. They know how to immediately John Simpson. The left guard for Clemson. Who said I personally feel like Notre? Dame was the best team in place to play that game. I also think there's a little arrogance on the part Alabama and they're about this we play in the S._e._C.. It's a much tougher conference to us for us to get to a national championship. Game is difficult your Clemson yes you're terrific team with the A._C._C. to navigate your way through that and to play the championship game just get to the final four not as harsh river lawrence. We bring back your leader receiver. You bring back. You're leading rusher. Clemson should be the cocky team not Alabama Alabama eight start is coming back on the offensive side all right marlins manager don mattingly sounds like he's ready for robot empires the one used by the Atlantic League to call balls and strikes and they're all star game padres closer Kirby eight struck out curtis granderson. This is a borderline pitch to end the game with the tying and go ahead runs in scoring position. Madly wasn't pleased. Please and even referenced the Atlantic saying quote. Hopefully the technology gets their quick is you. This is your team. Does Donny Baseball have a legitimate gripe frank. Have you seen the stands in Miami this nobody nobody has claimed this team not even and Derek jeter but I will say this. This is just a gripe. It's another way to complain about empires or what have you that wasn't even that bad of a call. They're just happened to be the last call of the game but this has to be music to rob Manfred xeres right he talked about Bro Robot umpires something that Donnie bleeping baseball like if he doesn't carry any weight behind his worse than I don't know who does and it's also as I mentioned Derek jeters team if Derrick jeeter starts to get behind this and this conversation gets really strong then rob Manfred saying hey my experiment experiment over here is actually working. I can really make my mark on Major League Baseball with this decision. I think the more we have people talking about this more legitimate people talking about this idea the more momentum we get and hopefully we got a couple of things. The marlins were nearly really no hit seventy two thirds anybody's Chris Paddock which would have been the personnel hitter in the history of the padres if thirty five fifty eight so he's obviously frustrated. Do you think it helps a manager to basically. You're not just complaining about one home plate umpire. You're saying that they all should be replaced by a robot. You really think that that's going to help you down the road. If you're don mattingly well what is down the road for more losses right. It's not like he needs the empire's respect for him to make a playoff or anything like that. I think he's being honest. You talked about being frustrated this year. It's been frustrated for a few years now and so this is just honesty from him coming out and I think that conversation to continue to be on that pitch and this is the one thing about baseball umpires in every empire has a different strikes on Curtis granderson kind of ducks down a little bit and Curtis granderson strikes out all the time one year he struck at one hundred seventy four times this year it's sixty eight strikeouts in two hundred twenty one at bats he strikes out all the time but say this about the Commissioner Commissioner's office the Atlantic League which are using as a trial balloon on all these different things stealing nays on a drop football by the catcher. It doesn't matter what the count is also robot umpires. It's getting a little momentum when you have a manager of a team talking about an occasional replay on a controversial strike call for ball careful careful okay. Let's take a break but coming up everyone's making being a big deal about Baker Mayfield but Lamar Jackson poised to have a bigger season and last night featured a backup catcher throwing a terrible pitch but was it the most memorable one of the day off his next all right. They got three Emmy Awards here. This two of our pardon interruption is brought to you by Jaguar the art up performance and Geico fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance GEICO presents yikes another voicemail from your roommate shepherd threw me. Hey A pie. I in the basement completely flooded anyway. I call for someone to fix it but in the meantime I was thinking we could finally have that indoor pool party. We will always wanted. I got him coolest wind floaty things already go and could you pick up some chips on your way home later. The GEICO Insurance Agency could help keep your personal property protected like if your roommate isn't the brightest pool float in the flooded basement visit GEICO DOT com to see how easy it is to switch and save on Renter's insurance all right. It's time for the game that Kornheiser cannot win today. Toss Up. Let's get the first one from the producer over the loudspeaker toss up. Which second year quarterback do you expect to have the better season Mayfield Frank Baker Baker Mayfield or Lamar Jackson man? I wanted to jump right in on that one. I'm going to go with Baker Mayfield who last year when five of his last seven games remember this about Lamar Jackson he won six of his last date but this is what worries me that playoff game against the chargers he he was so poor and again. I wonder if there's going to be any carry over the season for that one well. I'm GONNA take Baker Mayfield as well but for just these two reasons one. He seems to go after it. He has to one he's got the confidence. If you look at the numbers or if you look at the way he plays a number of thirty eighty five percent of his red zone passes and T._D.'s this year the second behind Russell Wilson that's a big number right there and he's obviously got Odell Got Landry. He's GonNa have Kareem Hunt during the second half of the season presumably so with those weapons and that confidence he will probably have the better season but man Lamar Jackson accent with Gregg. Roman is his offensive coordinator. I think the thing about last year that was the problem is he's starting to late in the Cedar now. You've got his feet under him a little bit week eleven two week seventeen. He was seventh in the N._F._l.. inrushing Lamar Jackson what do you got next toss up more impressive assist Josie outdoors goal or Pete Alonzo's homerun alright Josie out the door Toronto F._C.. As they say in Great Britain look at that is a lovely piece of skill. A little backheel on the cross gets passed. The red bull's keeper Lewis Robe List. Here's the thing about out the door he basically miss the Point Blake shot against Mexico two weeks ago Cup finals. That's why I'm not gonNA take that. It's going to be the mets rookie pita Lonzo. Here's a four hundred and seventy four foot home run to the upper deck number thirty one for him. He's on Pace Jason Fifty three the mets team record is forty one how about New York right now with the future of baseball homerun hitting the Lonzo in Judge John Carlos Stanton. I mean that's a lot of fun. I'm going without the door here because you mentioned that Gimme that he had against Mexico One v one with the keeper. Burly then he had that crazy free kick goal against Montreal last week which is a beauty and then this one. He's recovering nicely although his teammates probably going to remember the other part I was getting I was waiting for you to say Megan would have scored divide in front of the goal. What are you got next? Toss up more memorable pitch that Nikki or Tim Federal Mitch all right. Let's look at the the bears head coach here. This is the first pitch at again. That's that's not Michael Wilbon. That's a sixty eight. Look at movement on that that's not will that that is terrific. I'm going to go there now. FEDEROVA JR who is the Rangers catcher they bring him in look at that pitch that didn't even register on the gun. That's soft of a pitcher was now. He did get the last three outs and he did his last pitcher. The game was seventy seven miles an now. I'm going with the bears coach so with that movement that he had this to me was all about energy with federal VICI see him in the way he turned. We watch that it was like yeah. It was a guy who threw a pitch that he knew was going to get hit out but nagy man. He's on the white on white on why he looks great out there. He's bouncing goes. He followed that ball in before it hit the catcher's Mitt. That guy knows what he was doing. Look the part played a perfect any through from the rubber trubisky to throw the ball so many nervous moments when you're out there because so many people messed that up that guy was super duper first pitch now you're famous. What do you got last one toss up? Whose career would you rather have David price or Dennis Eckersley? I wouldn't mind having David prices contract. East to the Great Hall of fame pitchers the broadcaster for the Red Sox he in David price price has a history price confronted him on the team plane last season that got into again Eckersley said I don't ever plan on seeing him David Price call them trash. They both Wanna Cy Young. They both WANNA world series but Eckersley hundred ninety seven wins three hundred ninety saves. I'll take Eckersley. I mean this one's pretty easy for me. It's gotTA BE ECK right because if you think about him you think of the closer sort of revolutionizing the position somewhat the world series the hair the mustache what's David price known for most of his career playoff failures right. They're not living up to that and so the last year is done. That's probably what you're going to think of most and even when you talk about this fat I'm taking Eckersley on this one because David price did too much on the plane mocking him and even saying that an M._l._b.. Network documentary doesn't have any of his teammates talking about him and when you look like twenty minutes of his teammates talking about him in the past going a little over the top by the way you can make the case so equities most famous moment was the back door slide into Kirk Gibson that he hit out of the park. One of the most famous home runs and world series history all right. That's it. Let's take one last break but still to Hummed J._R.. Smith have a new team and Josh Norman makes an argument for jumping over bowls implants Pamplona but was it a good one knew that oh no skinny built starving over there. He's still shoots a five over. What are we doing with the fat into into starved himself? Corruption is brought to you by this summer of jeep. Some are sounds better in a cheap toppis. It's happy time everyone happy twenty nine th birthday Alvarez has the unified middleweight world champion announced this week he will not fight on the weekend of Mexican Independence Day a time when he usually boxes can Elo said quote as a Mexican it's responsibility and an honor to represent my country in both May and September timber. I'll tell you what if this means canal will by triple G. and December. I'm okay with more of an M._a.. U._F._C. Guy but triple g versus Camello that is absolutely appointment television. I don't care if you're not a box gives. He was born in Guadalajara by the way happy anniversary to the Toronto Ronald Raptors on this day last year you acquired Kawhi Leonard from the San Antonio Spurs in a deal that included the Marta Rosen who was beloved in Canada. The trade was considered a risk because I was in the last year contract and there were whispers that he would vote to the L._A.. Clippers well two weeks ago Co.. I did just that but not before leaving the raptors with their first ever N._B._A.. Time it'll be remembered as the day Kuweit took over. He claimed ownership of the N._B._A.. For his part he left Toronto with so many memories that last last shot against the sixers amazement championship happy trails to a spectacular catch attempt by Justin Upton the Astros Alex Bregman hit one back back back and updated made out complete massive it instead of looking like the great former angels <music> outfielder Torii Hunter Upton Kinda resembles Manny Ramirez here. I want so many do this at a Cleveland Yankees playoff game in the Bronx by the way up did have to hits last night but the Astros defeated the angels eleven I went to fly ball hit me in the chest playing softball well. I can't laugh at all right. What era I sit? Alabama returns eight offensive stars. I apologized to Clemson. I meant Clemson all right. We're running out of show. Let's go to the big finish J._R.. Smith met with the bucks today. Do you like that that bit mostly because Lebron organised doesn't Yell L. let his teammates the way Lebron does angels reliever. No Ramirez was suspended three games for hitting Jake. Moore is nick the other night fair. I don't think it spem originally got only two games for taking Jonathan mcchord area giving the picture that really take them out or was that kind of an accident impair like accident. He ran out of the family talking about Josh. Norman says you can get hurt anywhere who doesn't he doesn't understand the criticism of jumping over bulls in Pamplona that a fair point notes. It's not like getting into a car on Tuesday and driving to work. It's like jumping into a NASCAR. Never had any experience you can get castrated of course not good lunchtime said is like a Ferrari playing amongst Fiat's in the M._l._S. thoughts that that is true and I got a chance to see him play a couple of months ago his size.

"So what's going on at your in Utah, Utah you call them alone? Common loan com alone. The great state of Utah. Where it is a balmy fifty degrees today. We just got word. Lebron is not gonna play tonight. I could've told you that last night when he didn't get on the plane. Oh is that right? What I had the early skews on. Now, we stayed in LA. Yeah. I wanna I want in the morning show this morning and told him, I guess people. Do you know does anyone listen to that show? I mean, I I'm a big morning show guy. I love the morning show. Don't be picking on the morning show. Not saying that I mentioned on the morning show. And you said that you just found out is breaking as far as I'm concerned. Just only about so that means it's new to me. Yeah. He didn't come and Tyson Chandler didn't come and then Reggie Bullock and Mike moose Scala are both questionable. So Steve Wego in tonight. Extremely shorthand. Oh, this is going to be a slaughter. It's gonna be water. Oh, come on get watch the game last night. Did you see Lance Stevenson? I did see land. Stevenson, put Jeff green in the spin cycle. Here is the call Lance Stevenson and Jeff green here. Stevenson, dribbling at the top of the key with ten seconds to shoot Stevenson moving. Right. Steven's step back. Oh. Jeff go there toward at half court that will be on every highlight show in the country land. Stevenson, you Jeff green to the point where green fell over backwards and then Lance buried it in the Laker Ben when hysterical historical the whole stadia wet grazing. So that's is that a season highlight that is the season. Highlight. There is no highlight that will top that in a season full of disappointments that what now I have a bring back Lance bring back home. I have a I have a I guess what would you call it? I have a tactical question for you. All right. Go ahead. I'm good at. Looked closely not even closely. If you just look at the review. How should I put this lane stepped on his foot? Yes. They're just does that does that weaken the highlight in any way? Well, I mean, no it does. I mean. Yes, we know that he stepped on his foot, but we just have to buy it. And pretend like didn't happen. Throw us a bone. Yeah. Come on. It's been a long year yet. I mean, it's been watching the wizards. The wizards are like the Lakers of the east. Are they will they lost John wall? They lost white Howard. They traded on for her. Trevor REEs got hurt in the first quarter last night. He's probably done for the year. They they're just they've been besieged by injuries. They thought they were playoff team. Instead, they're going to win about thirty games. They're they're the Lakers of these. Yeah. And it's an unfortunate win for us. Because it's making tougher to get up to let's say the six Washington is in front of us. Just pulling up. Breath on dot com. Yeah. To see exactly where we are. We've got a an eleven point seven percent chance of being in the top four and only two point five percent chance of getting the number one overall pick. We're tied with Minnesota right now, I'm gonna I'm gonna have you do an exercise. Pull up the Lakers schedule when you get a chance. The games ahead of Steve the games from now until the end of the season are going to be our saving grace, our mother's milk. If you will mother's milk. It is. If somebody has a tougher scheduled in the Lakers from here on out. I'd like to see it. Okay. So I've got it. Here. They close at Utah home to Charlotte at New Orleans Addo KC home to Golden State at the clippers home to Utah home to Portland. How many wins are there? Let me see maybe the Charlotte game. Oh, please. I think there's too there you go to wins their y'all to at an eight right two out of eight my put us right where we need to be see I do I go to the tank on site all the time. And I just do the simulated lottery, and I don't quit 'til the Lakers. Get in the top three hell on last time. You did that how long did it take? You. It takes at least ten clicks to get it. The Lakers seem pretty solid in that eleven over and over and over again, there's a twelve there's a two there's a number two overall pick. So once group or five six seven the eighth time. They were the number two overall pick. Well, here's the thing that seems to be there like you number Ingram. Number two overall, pick D low number two overall pick Lonzo number two overall pick. Yeah. So lucky? Number pronouncing, joh- Moran. Do you think John rant over RJ Barrett? Oh, yeah. But or or trading rate, it I would trade it. Yeah. You can trade it you can't say this. But it would be part of a package that you could trade to New Orleans for Anthony Davis or perhaps someone else or perhaps someone else. Did you watch any of the game last night? I wouldn't blame you if you. None of it. But there was a guy. I'm protested. I cannot mention by Bradley Beal, I know, Bradley. Good. Yeah. Bradley Beal's real. What makes you think? I'm speaking of him. I may be speaking of Tomas Sada Renske. I don't think so I think Brown, and if you use your imagination the pick could be not another young guy. Could be good old guy depends. What Robin magic decide to do. Yeah. Options is what we need Steve option as many as possible. So I don't know by the way, we're going to do our baseball picks today. Excellent. Our division winners are wildcard winners in our World Series. And Greg is kept track of what our picks were last year. How many okay, so so they're eight divisions right there six divisions six and two and four wildcards. That's right six divisions. And then wildcard. Yes. Okay. So who did the best last year who did the best Greg? Well, depends on what you so I was the only one to have the World Series, correct guy. None of us had the NL Cy Young will or the songs degrom. Nobody had Cy Young nobody who is it in the AL. Last year was wasn't sale. The AL Cy Young was the guy in Tampa. Oh, yeah. That's. Nobody had the Cy Young the MVP Stanton. Springer judge in the AL. So nobody had that that the NFL MVP Bellinger, vodka and Harper. So none of us had Bellenger who is the home of Ireland Ireland Ireland it the champs everybody chose the dodgers. But we all had the dodgers in the World Series. Of course, we did. I was the only one to have the Red Sox dodgers the wildcards all the dodgers winning in the AL. So I had the Red Sox. You both had the Yankees the ale central all of us had the Indians ale west all of us had the Astros. We all got the NFL east wrong as we all have the nationals. We all had the cubs in the central. So we were wrong. The west we all had the dodgers. So that was right. And that's about it. We had the sand is nowhere to go. But up. Yes. Correct. I got the right World Series though. Yeah. But you didn't pick. You didn't do what you did against the ring. Sure, he's was dodgers versus Astros Yankees versus dodge Yankees versus document almost hat. You almost had it. You just missed. And then I don't know that you know. I just missed. I was there. We all had the dodgers winning, by the way. Yeah. Yeah. 'cause we're in L A, and we love the dodgers. I'm not picking the dodgers this year. I'm picking them. This is the year. So am I this is absolutely the year? I can feel it in my in my bites. Let me ask you a question. What makes either one if you think this dodgers team is better than the one last year that didn't win? What you add back? Cory seager. Who wasn't who wasn't here last year? The people forget how is hurt to pitchers are hurt. That's the whole rich pit. Yeah. But Clayton Kershaw will be backed by may the first that's no big deal Richhill will be back sooner or later and Clayton Kershaw. Like, I look at construction. If you tell me he's going to be backed by may, I just add six weeks to it. You had six weeks to think about it. Like, if you ever when's the last time you had any major construction if they work on your kitchen, they tell you the thing will be done in five weeks. It's really ten to twelve weeks. Greg. He threw a two inning sim game yesterday in Anaheim, do you know how that went? I do not. Okay. 'cause walker. Bueller? Threw a five inning sim game was able to play catch again. No kershaw's thrown from the mount he's thrown a sim game. So he's actually on the mound in pitching. It's just they're stretching them out and get him settled in because he didn't pitch much during spring training. He really only wanted up catching or thrown bullpens. I love AJ Pollock. I think he is a phenomenal center fielder. I think Corey Bellinger as breakouts. Big of a word phenomenal. He's serviceable center fielder. He's better than you know, just a guy, but he's not phenomenal. I think is phenomenal eats is even a top ten center fielder in baseball. Did wouldn't you say phenomenal for top three? What's what's his war? I know I consider that to be a major upgrade for the question that Greg's answer that question was exactly the answer in the movie trading places. When the denigrate gets caught in the beginning and eighty it's gotten the beginning. And he says is there a lawyer in the house and everybody goes home? I don't know he had a two point five war last year two point four point one the year before. Yeah. So he's he's worth two or three wins. But nominal butter better war just short of phenomenal better war than Bryce Harper life better than price at a weird year. No, he always has a weird year. I think that I think that signing will ultimately be a bust. The phillies. Let's to our baseball predictions next. Unless you wanna do this football rule thing that we we read that wrong yesterday. We thought that there was no chance of this day today. They just reversed everything we talked. We broke the news that they weren't going to do anything. And then as every a bunch of stuff. Yeah. We'll get to that. Let's do. Our baseball picnics Mason, Ireland, ESPN ESPN, LA, Mason Ireland. Don't forget tomorrow are opening day party with Mason, Ireland clermont's galleon San Gabriel from eleven AM to three PM. We'll be live watching the dodgers on opening day, by the way, actually on a boat. No it, but it does have a big ship. They call it the ship. Then somebody said you, oh, you're going to meet the leaker. You must not going to the boat. Yeah. Go onto the boat. Go onto the ship. I don't know. I'm just going to this place. They do have spectrum. So we can watch the game there. Maybe don't have it at home opening day prices expensive. So you can come out and hang with us. We're giving away MVP experiences from sports clips we're giving away tickets to my next movie screening, which is ventures endgame game on April the twenty fifth. Plus, we have Mason in Ireland t shirts all kinds of other stuff powered by west com. Credit union opened count at and get the power of weei dot com. Join us on Thursday tomorrow at clear mines galley in San Gabriel. And we're going early right. Eleven eleven am tomorrow. That's right. So it'll probably be landing about ten fifteen. Am I'll get there? Just in time. Excellent. By the way, couple of updates Julio reaced pitch last night in the freeways, right? Went four innings of hitless baseball. Yeah. He looks good. The probably goes into the starting rotation doesn't he he's injury. He's going to be the five hole in the five spot in the starting rotation as of right now and Clayton Kershaw to winning sim game went. Well, he came out of that feeling good and Walker bueller through five innings at symbol. He's gonna throw on Sunday. So the way the starting rotation lines up. It will go tomorrow. Reu Friday is chicken Strip Saturday is Ken to meet a Thursday. I'm sorry. Sunday is Walker. Bueller? And then Julio reaced will be the fifth starter in the rotation to start the season. I'm excited about who. He had a great spring. If he's healthy. He's still not what he's still like twenty two. Oh, yeah. He's a kid. He's a kid. All right. So going to do our baseball picks. We do this every year last year. We we were reasonably credible up at the dodgers right going to the World Series as about it. Yes. We did knowing that. We didn't get any individuals stuff. Right. Not one. No. We did. Oh, you wards. Awards all the individual. We were all let's not do individual awards right chicken might as well. What are you doing? I'm doing. I'm ready for it. We care you're doing. I'm not ready for it. You weren't ready ready for last forever. Pick the divisions. Now, I wanna put some thought into this. I haven't done it yet. I can't do it and you can put I'll put mine into Mason. Just come in. This is an interesting exercise because Mason who's going to put thought into it. We'll do worse than us, of course. Untrue. Absolutely untrue. All right. Let's go. We'll start the hardest. I think the hardest division to pick the American League east. Who do you got? It's a dogfight of division. I personally think Washington is going to be second American ale ale east. Okay. A-list is Astros rewind east east. Why are you start used? Are you stone? No start in the east east. The American League east Yenkey. Hi, I'm going Yankees. I love their starting lineup. Bullpen is unbelievable with potential and Britain. And Chad green and auto vino and our oldest Chapman. And I think they win the division. Greg. I'm going back with the Red Sox. I think they're still have the best lineup in baseball. They still have the best pitching staff and good closing. I'm all about the Red Sox. I'm I'm Red Sox too. Because and I'm going to be rooting for the Yankees. But the the Red Sox are better and they don't have the injuries. I think to Lewinsky at shortstop is a reach for the Yankees reach. And they just need him until the other kid comes back Gorey's degree Gregoria city year. Yeah. Is is maybe coming back in August. And even then he would it'd be almost sounds like a course you're gonna give me the Red Sox. All right American League central. This one's pretty easy. I think we're all on the on the Indian. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I is there even like. Challenge. The twins would be the distant challenge. But I, you know, they got door Jose Ramirez. Endorsed got hurt and regulation. Kluber Carascalao Bauer the American League West is the same way. Right. Nobody's going against the Astros. I got Astra. No. Although I'll tell you they have they have a weakness. Now, I think they're starting rotation. Kaikal gone mccullers junior has gone. Morton is gone still got the great lineup. But you gotta keep Karan to healthy. I I don't think that they are a hundred win team by any stretch. I think the win the division, but they're starting pitching his taken a big step back. All right. The then you need to wildcards. Yes. For me since I picked the Red Sox. The Yankees are one and just for fun just to pick one. None. You guys are gonna pick. Give me the as. Wow. Okay. It's that's not terrible pig. As or the raise the raise made it last year. Right. The raise did make it to the one game playoff. Yeah. I am going to go Red Sox. Mookie and JD Martinez and destined for joyous healthy. Now, I'm gonna go Tampa as the other one Lovejoy Wendell Jima choice solid at thirty run thirty home run guy and pitching improved because they added Lance mccullers junior to go along with lakes now and Tyler glass, I since I had the Red Sox. I'm gonna go with the Yankees in there. And also, surprisingly I'm gonna go with the angels. I think the angel tickets possible. It's not I think that's out of all the other teams the basement send archers can you name for the angels. Well, a lot of them are hurt. Yeah. I can name Matt Harvey, right? I can name. That's the first guy your name. He's number two starter. That's the first guy you're naming on the pitching stuff. That's why they're gonna have trouble mad Harvey won't stay healthy. No. And there's an I'm blanking on it. Fig name pitchers hill. They. Writing all these writing these down, right? Here's the one division that I think you could give one of three answers, and it would it would be right. I really need. He is the for the Red Eye health hurt. So he's starting on the day yell. Okay. Heaney starting the season the deal, they're they're they're hurting east off amount at least nationally east you could give one of three answers here. That would be totally accept Mason. I know you're going Phillies. Right. I'm going Phillies. Absolutely great a whole bunch of good stuff during the off season. Did do a whole bunch of stuff really love jail room Muto JT rail Muto signing, but. I'm sticking with the Braves to win that division again. I think they have a good young. Okay. This is good. And I'm taking the nationals. We're gonna have a so we have win the re different picks. The Mets come out of this. They could not division is an that's the toughest division baseball right there. Because it's the only division where you can honestly say three different teams could win. Yup. Like, all the other ones. There's one coming up that the American League east is also really taught who's the third team. Tampa. See here's the other division. I disagree. I don't think campuses Panthers. Here's here's the other division where you might be able to make an argument for three teams National League central. I think the brewers the cardinals and the cubs are all right? They're all go first. Because I think you guys are probably taking the brewers. I love what the cardinals. Did. I love them picking up Goldschmidt. I taking Saint Louis who you got. I am also taking Saint Louis, really, love Goldschmidt. And by the way, he is going to be the National League most valuable player I'll go out on so much. I wanna take time. Individual guesses, your I'm good. I'm gonna figure out all of them in this very segment as long glad good. Thank you for getting into the spirit of the dump prediction game. I'm going opposite of you guys. I'm sticking with the cubs to take. Nobody took the brewer nobody the roots. I don't think I think they were just one of those one year wonder type Jones, I think they're going to be still gonna win games. I still gonna be you're gonna win more. I think the cubs are going to. I think the cubs are gonna get back to where they're supposed to be where you're used to them being there's going to be a team that's going to be dangerous down the stretch. So I won't cubs is no one speaking against the dodgers right now. Speaking against the now, the wild cards are hard. I went first last time in may. So you go first, okay. My wildcards are Washington. I love their pitching shirts or Strasbourg Patrick that. The Braves are going to go down. I do I think they're gonna take a step back and they lost Bryce Harper bread. I think the nationals have the best rotation of baseball right now. Who's the other team who's the end? My other one is Milwaukee who I who I still love and especially love their bullpen with. With hater and setting up for Corey able I think that the National League east teams are going to beat each other up. So I'm not taking the Braves or the Phillies. I'm taking even though I'm I think the Phillies there's been comeback to burn me. Because I I can't catch Phillies only playoffs, but I'm going to predict they won't I'm taking the other two central teams. I've taken the brewers and the cubs all right in the wild card. I have I am taking the Phillies is the Braves winning the division. So I'm gonna go the Phillies, and then the brewers is well are going to make the we all got Milwaukee in just not as a division winner. Right. Okay. We'll do the rest. We'll we'll do our MVP Cy Young winners next. Say it again and the World Series and the World Series, of course. Yeah. That's coming up. Next. More you Mason in Ireland. It is the day before opening day ESPN LA, John, you know, who this is the neck, the knack. You're in my wheelhouse old school old school Mason Ireland ESPN LA day before opening day. We're doing our awards picks now. Oh, we gotta do a World Series. I okay, John. What teams play in the World Series this year? All right. This is. Hard. But I'm going to go cardinals in the National League dot Astros in the American League, a tear. Wow. Wow. That is bad won't go. It you guys go and pick the dodgers because you're homers. Go for it. I look I think to win more games than anybody in the nationally going away. So I am going to take the dodgers go the World Series in in the American League team went to the World Series three years in a row the Yankees Yankees. And I'm gonna go Yankees who I think Yankees enough fantastic season. God, that's what the world wants, right? You wanna stodgy Yankees that's huge World Series. I'm going. I think it's going to be a repeat this year. I got Red Sox dodgers in the World Series this year and the dodgers are going to be good. They are going to even even stranger. When is the last time the same two teams met in the World Series, the NBA finals a lot. But in baseball done passing. The Yankees must have had a team faced Yankee maybe back in the day. They went what four years in a row. All right. So do you made me do my awards really quick slowly who's the winner? Who's the one I'm taking the doctors to win at all. So am I Astros. Three years for the Ashton. I just don't like their pitching as much as it's been as well. Okay. It's not as good as it used. Okay. So let me. You took us down that road. So let me tell you my American League Cy Young award pick. Pride of UCLA Garrett Cole. Wow. Really? Lender to he didn't Garrett Cole skin. You know, he he was on that bad team in Pittsburgh Rogers. I think he's gonna win it year. All right and your National League. Nobody you oh. AL Cy Young. I'm going Corey kluber from the Indians. Oh, that's what I'm going to look at that. That's a good pick. All right. I know Cy Young, Greg. I I have back to back. Jacob degrom. I think really yet. I think he's gonna have basically the same. You're not as not as good. But he's going to be just the same pitcher when he's healthy. He's incredible. I'm going to max Scherzer you to that ladder. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say miles Mikla of the Saint Louis cardinals. He is their ace. And I think he's got dynamic stuff and the cardinals. I think while the second best record in the nationally. Wow. You already said your National League MVP is gold is Goldschmidt. Yeah. Right. Yep. I'm going Nolan aaronow. Oh, totally safe. That is very safe. I'm going little bit off the board here off the board. But I think the Braves are gonna be really good. And I've Ronald a that. Love that pick about that. He is going to be a stud. Who did you are you took Araneta Nolan or not? Oh, okay. And American League MVP you guys. We'll take and trout, I'm taking I'm taking judge. I'm taking Alex bregman. No interesting. That's a good one. I I have trout though. I think after that big contract. He's going to stay healthy this year. And you're gonna see start seeing him being guy. He was bonus here because I'm guessing didn't look at rookie of the year. But I did you. I did not a LA minor minor, easy minor like very very, shall we say Chaki picks. Okay. I'm taking for Nando tat TS in the National League. Because the Padres are gonna let me art. They're gonna let him start the season which most don't do. You know, they do that screwy thing with the arbitration. Yeah, they wait until June. So they don't add they get an extra year. Another second generation baseball player in the American League Vladimir Guerrero there. Yeah. I'm exactly the same on both of those gross. Got a an oblique strain right now. They may. Call them up till June. But you can still win rookie of the year. If you get called up in June. So and that I think is one of those arbitration clock plays. Anyway, I will go agreement there because there's a what somebody should take that kid from the Mets that that Alonzo. Yeah, he could be really good. Definitely. He's also going to start the year with the I think he's got a foot thing. Does he? Well, they're not send he's they're not going to do the time looked they say he's going to be on the roster. Right made the team's opening day roster. Yeah. They're not not as many teams doing that. Save a year of service time thing like Padres have a really good young starting pitcher named Chris paddock. He is going to start for them this year, by the way, the Padres are going to be a little sleeper better than I was originally thinking they're gonna I think they will run third in the division. Now last year we were able to change are like two picks. I think in the middle. We'll say at the all-star break, you can change to k. Okay. But you you can't you can't decide yet which to they are you can change to any to you want at the break. Great. And even doing that. We didn't do know. No, there's a lot of guesswork involved here. All right coming up next Ken Lay somebody else on a waffle house, frying pan. And it could get reviewed next year. Longest straight to the point of call about last night. Obviously us met designers put that boy on put that blown a waffle house fron pan. That is my hero Nicole Roby Coleman on eighteen soundbite of the year. So far. Yep. All right. Coming up next. The the NFL has made some rule changes in in terms of instant replay. We'll lay all those out for your next Mason Ireland ESPN LA, I decided let's come back with no music this time. What do you think row? Yeah. Two days in a row side. Just disappears aren't just disappears. It's just gone. Jay. Okay. All right. So the NFL owners meetings have now resulted in and yesterday. This was weird it sounded like all the replace stuff was shut down now so fast. Now, the the coaches have prevailed on the NFL owners, and there will be replayed and including on pass interference. Yes. So that ended includes non calls wreck. So this would have reversed the the Nicole Roby Coleman play on. I forget that wide receivers named Jonny Lee. Whatever was the guy who got decked by Nicole Roby Coleman. And by the way, it also came out that in looking at the Rams patriots SuperBowl that that passed down the far sideline to Brandin cooks that he was not able to to catch the one yard line. That would've been reversed would have been called pass interference Rams would have had the ball on the one yard line with a chance. To tie the game at ten so I can work for you can work against. But you brought up a good point yesterday. You're against this in the reason, you're against it makes a little sense. I'm for it. I wanna get these calls, right? But almost any pass interference call can be debated. I mean every once in a while there's there's the Nicole Roby Coleman where ninety nine percent. I'd say almost one hundred percent of people would agree that was pass interference. But most other calls, even if it's only ninety ten you can make an argument either way. So this is not necessarily gonna solve a problem. But it's going to give them more tools to get it. Right, right. Yeah. I just think a lot of these plays. Even once you look at him people can debate at that was at that wasn't and Slome down all you want. But people are still going to disagree about whether it was or was not pass interference. And and yeah, there there are calls that will get reversed over period of time. But realistically, you know, the games are now at three hours and twenty minutes on average you're going to extend those games with additional replay reviews. I just think you know, the NFL is concerned about getting its games shorter. Just like everybody else is interested in getting its games shorter. Because of this new generation of fans in this will do exactly the opposite. Right. But there are other ways to shorten the games. Like, you know, for example, some of these new football leagues like the app in the XFL. And and you know, John skipper, our old boss is is in conversations with football, executives and sports executives in general in trying to convince them that the traditional two and a half minute timeout with commercials is no longer needed in today's sports world, and he points to soccer soccer. Just puts the screen and shrinks it and runs the ads around the outside. Like if you watch EPL game, it starts it goes for forty five minutes. You normally have a couple minutes of extra-time, but they never leave your your your in that stadium for forty seven forty. We're seeing that more often in American sports coverage to right, but I'm saying that's how you can add these changes and not necessarily make the games long. But here's the thing. If I'm an advertiser, I'm gonna pay less for that. Because my ad is not going to be the primary focus during that particular segment of advertiser. I would say watch golf is trying something that's kind of cool Gulf is if I'm an advertiser, I would pay more for what I'm about to tell you what golf does is. They run the ad sound up on a big screen on the right, right? And then. Run the the Gulf. They just keep it going on the left. So you don't have the Gulf announcers. But you see what's happening. So in other words, if I'm you know, normally if I'm sitting in my living room or in front of my big mere audio-video, eighty inch TV. Yes, I when a commercial comes up. That's when I go to the bathroom. I go to the kitchen, but when they never leave. I o ROY McElroy gonna putt I I wanna see this. So that you could do that. Do you get what I'm saying? If I'm nationwide in everybody's watching Rory mcilroy. And he's not watching my ad. Everybody's not watching my ad, then I'm gonna pay less for that. I'm sharing the screen with a live sporting event. Right. But here's the thing. You may not realize it in this is particularly true with millennials. You can watch two or three things at once if Peyton Manning and Brad paisley are doing an ad on the right side of the screen, and you hear them talking. You're actually there at is up and the sound is up, but you're looking at the small screen with Rory McElroy putting to see made the putt you just absorbed the Peyton Manning, add even though you may not be completely focused on it, you if somebody comes back to you ten minutes later and said, hey, when McElroy made that putt, did you notice what the ad was. I bet you could pull it you think. So. Yeah. I mean, they've done studies on this. You can recite any studies any peer review studies. Well, no one I was in. TV news. Every TV newsroom is like the room. You're sitting in now. Correct. It has four or five screens. And it's the one where the sound is up that you remember in. So the sound for Peyton Manning. And Brad paisley would be up while McElroy is putting and the difference is I never left. I never went to the bathroom or went to the kitchen. I stayed with the broadcast. So I could see McElroy put and I got the ad in, you know. So that's to me on think. I I do see this. I'm trying to think what games. I see it. Well, they do it in golf. They do. I I remember seeing it on one of the big three. I oh, you know, what they did it during the World Series. Right. So you just saw the pictures you saw the pitchers warming up. But that's how you can make games shorter. And and I actually think it would make games flow better like, for example in in nineteen sixty eight when they Br. The World Series where where whoever that was was Tigers cardinals with Bob Gibson and Denny MacLaine in those guys when they left at the end of inning. It was a minute and a half two minutes. And then they came back over the years, especially in the NFL because like when they break for the Super Bowl, they leave sometimes for three and a half minutes because they can sell it. Right. But if let's say, you cut that break in half, you you you do a one forty five commercial break because nobody's huddling anymore anyway. Right. So you one forty five commercial break, and then, but you keep you keep the little screen on. And then when the play starts you just move into the big screen. I think that's where we're heading. Yeah. Oh, by the way. I the time slightly wrong NFL, three hours and twelve minutes. Major league baseball three hours and five minutes in the NBA is two hours and fifteen minutes. And what I love about the NBA is the second you go to halftime. Yup. The fifteen minute clock starts. So in other words, the horn goes off the fifteen minutes clock starts right away. And went by the way when that clock ends the balls in play. So you have exactly fifteen minutes, and you can do whatever you want with it. But it's never going to be longer than that. And they do that with the NBA is better at sticking to their clock than any leak because they know they they they love that two hour fifteen minute number. They think that they can attract more fans in and and so charged more advertising rates because their product moves better. And nothing moves like soccer soccer Jonkers. Keeps going they just don't leave. Yeah. And that's where I think we're going. All right. Coming up next. An interesting plan proposal by cliff Kingsbury of the cardinals have you seen this? I have not only seen it. But I cannot wait to talk about excellent. By the way. Thank you to the one point two million people who've pointed out to me that it's Charlie Morton and not Lance mccullers junior in the Tampa Bay rotation. Good got nit picky. You know? Like, you said you didn't have time to research. No. I didn't. I did. I did no research just talking off the top of my head. Exactly. All right, rabbis on the radio, everyday people. Yeah. I mean seriously, you try talking for three hours and getting everything right three and a half. Forget it. Forget it. All right.

Because he played north slow measured golfing ensure sixty free looked a lot winner for long way like last year. We used housing. Look the likely winner for long way. We ought him last year But stumbled the over the closing holes again and of course last year we had Lee Westwood on our saw it as well so it didn't matter we still go the winner but this year little bit ambitious just having one oversee. We should have told me fleet. We don't all the team as well and we go all. The wheels came off on the the Eleventh Halloween. Each charge chip drive down the left side and didn't even carry the jungle in front of to me on the anyone else from the coach. Anyone else in the tournament of being in that section of the course that wake astonishing double bogey resulted from that and and then he played played the final five holes in four overpass. If if you're an each way again finally faces a slipped into six face with it just you know the adrenaline going to the system wants to. We didn't Johnson gone. He didn't care about where he'd finished off the line. But each way pundits just absolutely savage. I mean did you. Did you can five bases idea by light off Ram once he got ridiculous price so I bought out very very early. Steve I take it you did as well and now much laying off pretty interim deputy Outta Outta love each way investment five bases and got the eighteenth he's still par comfortably and the basis but then he falls his first shot out out bounds on the eighteen then he holds an absolute monster. PUTT for for bogey. To stay in the places and then Thomas debt-free alone to knock him out the replaces the yeah just ultimate to this classic golf agony buys. You said that's been this year and it houses you commiserate while at that stage harassing dish issues leading the Markova classics. Oh well harassing this is GonNa win the Marco classics. We'll come to that in a SEC. Steve Glenn you had your wakened Chilton and didn't jobs yet the Ryan off on the Friday but did you enjoy yourself personally. Park as a could we oppose the safe ride. He was the air as they described the close of the Indian. I'm glad didn't did you. Lie Glenn now nine. The author decided to offer an outdoorsy sort on twitter So he's recovered by well. I was just kind of the way ten dice hoping but Yeah Oh wait a someday. Oh did on over in Mexico for the Microbe Steve. As you say you're you're Harris. English was looking good. We had a Monday finish and unfortunately Harassing Bill Bob Gold. If he clearly does not Monday says because he went he got himself out the places. Didn't he finished fifth. Yeah Yeah Yeah you got the face money. But he was using the lead at the halfway stage. Look off to be paid on the Sunday's you say whether delayed they play around and a half and he ended Sunday just one shot behind with four holes to play in the tournament so Very exciting at at at a Birdie PUTT lined up ready to go when he yeah came out in the next morning. So there's every chance he was going to be tied for the lead with three hosted go So a lot of excitement on Monday live on sky. Sports Twelve Thirty PM STUDENT IN TWELVE THIRTY PM. The first thing you see is Brendan Taught Hole in a twenty foot to go to shorts. Clear then you have English on this and ugly pull stay to beyond the following. How free of the lead is go into the greenside bunker?

So I'm catching up on the on sleep dot. The Gulf Pales into insignificance. At the moment it was it was one of those classic Gulf in weeks where tease throughout and then ever since snatched from grants We'll give out left and MRIS pay. Hope she's a she's on the men's Steve Blimey. We'd better talk about Brennan taught though Glenn because he's gone back to bat now. Isn't he running commuter commuter and then he's won this so he writes erotica place. If you don't carefully record extraordinary pounds Discuss discuss this guy when he wanNA at been right to full afraid world was a guy. Apply seasoning play. Lost Everything Kalfin yet. So these long guide things to back to back and a triple figure across his arms. Well it's cost issue Yeah but it's got standings narrow way again this week looking for Hatrick J. Backside what price the property last week WanNa get. Some people obviously didn't believe the the validity of the Bermuda win and put it down as a one off and he's he's shown the mini Soviet as an interesting guard surprise up his knee cut. We'll get to that event Soon anyone else you want to talk about last week. Steve Yeah Yeah very much. So yeah I think that in the net back Markus Kane. Hope we have to Give him an a huge relation for that. 'cause he was seventy first of seventy. Two runners is in the Nedbank last year so really long course and kin hopes witnesses. These never hit at foucault. is easy to outlaw sweet but he was such a plucky plucky uh-huh Latin push fleet with all the way you know. It didn't let that first prize. It was a two point five million dollar first prize for kin hall our would have been an immense meant some boost to his bank balance and he did let it fade him. So Anne average stranger than seven yards off the tee on his last week in host so he I think he's added a bit Lynn so a AH hugely impressed with Marcus. Kin and in the Macabre Roby Shelton was the catch remain Finished sick another good efforts. PJ rookie it. Looks like Securities Carter Radio Show and is a world-class Gopher. I don't suppose you against your eye catches from Nas Glenn at four legs rather than to didn't they because you were your tasty on the Cheltenham action but when you went through the results. was there anything that you thought I need to make.

Okay that's right cross of the unknown. Friday I'm right. Let's get back to the Gulf. Then and this week's tournaments we've got the culmination of European sour- it's the DP World Tour Championship. Jim Mora Gulf states in Dubai was tournament writing Glenn. Yoga have very good this week. Kite spin through uh Market latest for us yet on the first six on this one I thought about rory mcilroy. That's eight to Joe Rob. o'shane's me fleetwood sick. They Patrick rate is saying. Just rose show lighter fitzpatrick twenty two and twenty five baseball got cold exciting Steve for the two selections humane man. I have my mind is Tom. Lewis sewer has always been Destined for golfing greatness. Fantastic atmosphere led the opening twenty eleven as an Amazon. It's a one on the European tour. In just his third stars are professionals all happened really quickly for Louis. Then you had some Some lean years. You know the grand old game of Gopher took its revenge on him but the second off last year the Louis that we will know in love came back. You want a challenge tour event by five shots then. He won the Portugal Masters again. Then he made it. All the way through the Europeans will fall no series and finished seventh crucially in the DP Wiltord Championship on his debut. He made his debut in this tournament he taught the Greens in regulation statistics. That shows a huge edge effect affinity. With course he clearly loves it is being planned. Does it go from since he was knee. High to across replay while in the Abbey W junior championship many moons. Go Star there. She was the Abbey W championship. He was third in the Saudi International. He loves his desert Gulf. He relishes white fairways. Israel free flowing powerful and Yeah using confidence now he as a PGA tour card in his back pocket he won the Kunvari very toll fallen heroes at the start September stunning performances when over there and be up all these American players hoping to get onto the unto the PGA Tour Five Zero Victory Trey. So he's got to play them right from both sides of the Paul now and when he's come over and played in Europe with that. PGA Tour Card Security He's played well and he was thirteenth last this weekend. The in the Nedbank which is a real eye-catching performance when you consider that he was sixty seventh in that tournament last year. The Earth course suits and much better and and I felt trauma Lewis when opened. Eighty two wore. My tongue was just twitching with saliva. Lovely Image Glenn how many put out this week I just say okay. WHO's your number? One selection main selection is to be Jon Rahm Vice been around as I. Two Thousand Saint Five years at eighteen hundred events while award wins thirty five and forty three top. Ten's forty three one. Eight hundred nine Dolphin's defense. He's in Talton Brim.

That's a good Senator Levin events reason why got constant this week for you might very compelling case for Rom now I've got say Steve gives you other selection. Somebody who's never take before this election is Thomas Ages and they must soon after Thomas pieces another another powerhouse with the tools detainee earthquakes he closer to sixty seven for twelve brezler. WHOA WHOA WHOA? You named your son of Thomas. Peters that I was telling take his name is Thomas Thomas Margie Palm so obviously. The dog is off the tiger woods. The mark was off. The Mark Levine. Go in the Thomas. Is this sort of you. Know the flaw in the day. Why is equal Thomas? It's an I've always been a huge Thomas Pete. It's fine as you point out but it's actually because we just liked the name Thomas and the variety you can have with. It told me. Tell them Tom if you go okay. So yeah though. Thomas Bay is always so potential number one performance in the Roy you go to an away right a cop in bed atmosphere for your debut. Your team gets absolutely thrashed and who scores most points. Anyone in the in the competition Thomas Base. I mean. He's he's got bottle. We got huge amounts of Boston. And you'RE GONNA need bottle this week. Three million dollars is the first prices. tweeting the pros. Monday and European tours suddenly become jaw-dropping good and The I think Thomas is hitting is bull well. Enough to to contend is putting thing is a little bit in and out but He he's not a bad part he's never been a bad. I think the half decent week on the Greens and Thomas being there and he closed with a sixty nine in the in the Nettie Eddie. On Sunday I thought that was an encouraging lower. Little tip for you and E- e- each finished in the top five of the Daba Championship three times. Yeah another -nother proven desert. Is it Rach okay. Couple of sixty six to one pokes from Steve Glenn's first hippies is one of the shorties Jon Rahm. Who's your other selection? My second selection is GONNA be Roca back inside I don- say of convenience you are. He's GonNa win in August. I would it be sat eh. She's a little bit so big. Dyke offend you mentioned on this podcast and raw coaxes saints. Come to him and say a lot of the first star on onto the second enrich malices second into my that.

The last four events ingrained deregulation lost weight has had less the one point. Seven pops grain regulation new laws for events. Narrated Guy Highway rated pros is about the trend in this way because the last pre is to toews posted there and he can actually tiny victory tonight any way which is the NBA nights seven same. Yes Cherry a remote bruce. Wait certainly will say well done nice stuff Glenn Ocalan from both of you about rory because very short favorite too short few Steve Each way bets enough and potentially Is Eight to nothing happens. Nothing is a two on course. Twin areas record in Dubai is is amazing but some for a four to one. You won't ever find your favorite an and you haven't quite got land this way because Harry diamond is regular academy and a lot of success. With in recent months he is Just become a father. So He's absent. He's a rugby fame. Michael knol connery's coming in so I have the by for one week only so you've got a rookie county. That was enough to put me off and then and then also. The weather forecast the race to Dubai older so All the trash prominent in the race in the bar out lost and the windiest weather of the week. This week is coming on Thursday afternoon so all the best players will raise the bar leaders around in the in the in the worst of the weather on Thursday. So so you could get a much. Obviously a lot love Macho outsiders Lewis is Abby Law Alia hopefully So much wind to contend with but so that was enough to put me of macaroni at forty one. You won't ever find in favour and you haven't got by. Why have you not tips mcelroy Glen just yet surprise biscuit a The things. Go Blind But I ninety as to the shaver for just a little bit too. Okay any other pets Steve. Given what you know about the The weatherman of told you about Thursday. I guess it's hard for Jones. We can get value in the first round leader isn't it. Yeah certainly wouldn't put you off Tom Louis or Thomas. PS and first round leader. I think they're both come out the blocks and Yup potentially set the clubhouse mark. Okay any other veteran you Glenn on this tournament you like now just how much of okay. Let's look at the same same classic in Georgia next on the news the native stall sports to affect prices all by hall on our website and theft just such styles bullets fact and the APP store or Google eighteen years and older pecan. Welcome back to the racing. Post Gulf postcards Bruce Millington Steve Palmer and Glendale from Star Sports. We've looked AH depot. Now let's look at the American tournaments the RSM Classic Takes Place Beautiful Seattle in Georgia. And it's not the highest writing Glenis. Pose it digest. The an average citizen A kite take away your fifty first six Aziz webs boat. Same Billy whole show. I Sang Matt Kuchar. Twenty two Charles. How twenty-five harassing wishing serving studies raise our unwise? Adam hedwig snored and Scotty Chef stateful. So coast is out. Should already know this having in Baynes but as you want boy game with the story about how we didn't get to play John Meets boy with it okay so zone. A corporate. The mice amazing corporate Julia. I've ever been on. I must admit that Seestani's in we've stayed at Sea Island Georgia which is just beautiful absolutely gorgeous. I'm we had at the for the Super Bowl on the Saturday the day before. The event The organizers said right what do you can either play co for sale in Georgia or you can go clay pigeon shooting so I'm not let's go let's go play golf. I'm GonNa go out voted. Complete such clay pigeon shooting some Elkins doing you addington. You know three miles from our lives. Actually think euless honesty still hurts to this day every time they apply there and you look at it look such a lovely coast anyway. We'll often clay pigeon shooting insists you once you've done a couple the thing you can do in your local fairground fairground. Isn't it very much now. You must have been fuming. You probably still fuming but the see-sawed cool share his love. He would have really enjoyed. It says it's not a AH IT'S SHORT FOR PJ to venue so you wouldn't have had any problems. Getting et seven thousand and five yards are seventy and then of course it was across the road. You've got the foundation courses where you could have had to go on that one as well. Six thousand six hundred and seventy one yards now. That Davis love tinkering with it. Passed seventy two. So that's both of these coach's very easy so you have one round each of them in the in this tournament and then net both Both friends at the see saw over the weekend so accuracy and good scrambling in the case of success. How many tips have you Steve? Free and how many of you Glenn got one one get you hold onto onto the ones the guy with the first of your three okay. Well why number one selection is Webb Simpson. And I don't like favorites as you know but Simpson's so solid these days is and when you put them in a course that's What driving distances is pretty much relevant? Like Eighties for the IRS classic. Then you've got a weakness free run a because he so oh accurate and he's is scrambling skills now are You know almost second night. He was second on the The PGA tour last season Scrambling and Davis love essays. been tinkering with the These these chocolate mountains around the Greens which turned to make challenge To make scrambled difficult. But I think Simpson Ohana challenged the most and I couldn't see any holes in simpsons as well number twelve. You know he would go to give this man the respect he deserves now. He's a major champion in his. RSM CLASSIC FOOL figures at twelve to seven forty one. Thirty six withdrew three and the withdrawal rule came when he was he was twelve at the halfway stage and then is is dad. AD was on his deathbed. Unfortunately so we had to rush off to to his to his father's side So he may want to go home from twelve to win that tournament ease always played well in the irs n without winning. And I think this time he's GonNa get on. That trophy is form. It's too good to ignore is being runner up three times since June and he really unlucky with those because he's run into whoa cost. Plaza is at the top of their game. Rory mcelroy beam in Canada When he's absolutely buzzing in brooks cooked beaming instant jude when sorry? Some poor old Simpson hasn't won since the Players Championship. But it's not being entirely Entirely it's for each play wants to season seven from the shriners weapons very solid wager. Also chocolate drop man. Is that just a pontoon name for look. It's a lump adjust. It just dropped in these lumps. I mean if you look at the cost six thousand seven hundred hundred six thousand six hundred seventy one yards passing me too. Yeah they should be making mincemeat then they will make minimum but he has a few little tricks in the water and your chocolate drops also to keep on keeping on the toes on the weather. Forecast isn't during a repel low-scoring now sunny and calms often isn't on Georgian gymnasts. While they have so much fun plan that costs everybody plays always says they have Tom. And Glenn Who's your one and only selection action Webb Simpson Foyer. Might they might be whatever. I'm old enough to be paid just to bring about called stay. Suburb is pretty comprehensive. Every time I full added it will not be at anything that actual is on June in two thousand and I say I said well number twelve seconds. Also he's definitely got the kinds of my will run. You gain as in Austin awful actually onto one of them is this. Is this a reaction to your lucky dip. Selections from Nas Swayed where you just went randomly for four for four people now and save all nobody eighty eight did now. Sometimes you go go forever okay. So that leads both really really fancy Webb Simpson Glenn so much so that he's not even putting anyone anyone else up Steve Pool another chips down on this roulette table avenue. who were there? Yeah half because he got just to outsiders in the DP world champion. I think we've got plenty of statement within this when the load up on Simpson each way but then also have two more Russell Henley is the next best. He was really unlucky last week. He gone eight short penalty after his around. You see these one bruce you get very for straight with the rules of golf as do I. There's an get crossed up by. TV viewer no. No very very nobly went to the Torah Tour Fisher himself and his crime was to use a slightly different type of tightness pro V. One the normally does he normally using uses a model of tallest private everyone that they made cutler years ago yet she had a new prototype. It'd been trying in his bag. A wasn't sure ever used Illinois during the round he went to the tour officio issue and said I think Kamov uses one for thousand and then the Torah Fish. You said you use it for coming in. And eventually they gave him the maximum possible the two they could have done for the potential for hose. Mo of used it because you switched his bulls off the four hours. So yeah it's Shos. Eight short is costing sixty nine. which put him into contention became a seventy seventy miss the cup? So so he's he. One hundred Grand Emaar told me in terms of the prizemoney differential. You know he missed the cut. Get if you missed the cowboys. Say Mr Cotton. Zero Rewards Emaar won the tournament. What a million dollars? So yeah yeah just. It didn't such on this guy to go up to the tour Fisher and ensure they do say this about often. It's a gentleman sport and they snow. Gentlemen Gentlemen Sport they cheat. They ask for rulings when they know they've got no chance to Lou summer in the line of vision they get to drop on. The grain is politics. It's retaking show that golf balls. Golf Ball isn't that where they arrested. There's lots of gentlemen in the sport. I mean Louise Townsend frustration on Sunday because he could go a much better drop when he when he lost his born the eleventh radar Riley was saying all this a little bit Sir Fair e can drop it on but when all the way back. Ah The gentleman that is made it impossible to get to the green in with his third show. So Yeah Russell Henley. You've got tight yet. We saw I couldn't live with the fact that this board and he went over to the to the Torah Fisher so he's conscious completely clear now generally generally I like honestly but it was a Mug. There bug bit set up show is east playing really well. Yeah he's GonNa miss cut next to his name on the phone on there and his comments on off to what you were saying what he was this planet. He's he's obviously really gutted. They missed the cub. He's GonNa take takeout not for straighten on frustration on the same classic because he's got a good record in this tournament. Not Three top tens from his last four arsim classic stocks and it wasn't that long ago that he was finishing second in the John Deere Classic in July with the phone around sixty one. So these games coming along. He's putting tip from the Bronx Connecticut Sanderson Farms. Because then they used to be one of the best in the world and his infamous dipped but he says he had a good chat with synthetic. They found something he started to roll. These rock a bit better again The swing has improved so Yeah I think it's I think Russell Henley Manila best okay. Andrew Third Steve a foreigner one. Is Brian Gay. Who is a film ever at the age of forty seventies? That'll back problems through the years as but he's over them now and he's playing really. Well seven the shriners. Last month it was third in the Bermuda Championships Fourteenth in the Marco Classic last week and these are classic courses are absolutely he. Perfect for me is a shortage of Light Webb Simpson. But he's very accurate and he's absolutely superb on around the Greens. It was fourth in the Sam in two thousand thirteen. He was third in twenty seventeen and don't rule out first place in twenty ninety four time. PGA Tour champion. Okay Glenn Morris Brennan Towards Big Prize. He's won he's lost two tournaments get fifty to one. Yeah well he was off. The PROC- was awesome in potentially assailed. Jason Dive Alvarado Salvador. Wise guys It's a bear respect but yeah I'll be there if you're having a second selection Glenn who would it be. I looked at Brian Guy Guys coast you just go brought you. Iran good coach management scales. It could be your own God talk of fruit loss where you could artificial it into the mix White House and they are just stuck with a jolly wrestle. Headed these Did you say that women come up the guy say near L.. AGI Go fifty six fifty eight penalty strokes at this is as she played the role giants where the candidate could stay behind you often. Jay Wasn't aware of it off our food to secularize fused. Pay Off US every time she candy. I mean to be that one. He's a little bit slot. You know you should know that rulers potion but I'm I'm on the mice the artist or Gopher Gopher see why you have to say exactly what Mike is that's very strange to us one moisture. PJ Toll Roy allows us one exact model for the whole round Has got the same compression is GonNa be the same pool but this. This is silly tightness Olot. You wouldn't even notice what's the difference but eastbound at dash their names and everyone is. Would you favor Steve all use the tallest. Provia one traditionally But now tonto onto hard. I'm off to switch to To Dunlop opinion fraud. What about nuclear in Mosul preferred go for US kind of why a Gaetano but now you say wealthy can afford catalyze yet? Excellent good Gulf Gulf both all exactly the same. And I think if you took a load of unbranded goebbels and randomly put the brand on them. No one would notice the difference. S My v Log okay let's Solemnly in clearly reiterate Korea right the selections this week the DP World Tour Championship into by Steve Palmer Yorker four massive disagree with you on the Gospels and logger. I Komo logic grades of that but Sir we'll have a child off golf balls all law girl both both both. I think that if rubbish longer longer takes abysmal the best best largest taste majestic and I can tell is probably one hundred yards alkhanyurt commando or done more what If I hit that with my sweet spot it'll go about two hundred so But anyway this is what I'm getting the solemn reiteration of tapes as a digress. There's yeah let's go again. Solemn Radiation Tape Steve Palmer. The EP will to a championship. Tom Lewis Thomas Pizzas Glenda who you going for wrong and Roberts mackin Zoya and in the Ram Classic Steve Palmer Webb Webb Simpson Russell Henley Brian Gay and Glenn Die. Just one Webb Simpson thank you chaps. If you're only having one gopher this week what would it be Glenn each why Double Robinson here that does send Tintin very strong case for that Steve. What about you if Tom Lewis from Webb Simpson each way double but if you wanna be even more ambitious can have an each way? Treble this way because The Dunlop Phoenix Open in Japan till used to be the crown jewel in on the Japan tour into the zone zone. Championship arrived Very strong favourite in that. So Yeah you can have to Louis Simpson Matsuyama each way. Triple someone tweeted did say can you Can you we've you the Phoenix. And I wasn't quite sure it meant because the Phoenix open takes place in February and I didn't know what else was Kinda lucky. You've mentioned that so Matt's Yami think will the businesses favorite in the Dunlop Phoenix. Yes it's tournaments one. Before he's finished runner up twice and his full conformance superb push targets all the way and is Dozo And he's got very little to be in this tournament so Gary Woodland's come over Collymore Akaba Ya. If Nazi armies it's switched on his game face on this week and he hasn't won a trophy of any kind for a long time so I think he will be eager to win. This I think is a certainty really blowing me. What about you Glenn? If you have a look at that one yeah lock in your price. Maciel say very show. What price is he he must have Hundreds of thirty seven. Come back him at that. No Chelsea never got it. How'd you spell an I W I just WANNA FRIES I? Obviously I say spies is the record of the US. Nate quantitative even the likes of will will coax George Carlin. Emma combine Before where is guys afraid on. Ah on the Mackenzie Canadians. So now I guess the job done and you can back in two hundred fifty seven prices with one of the phones that I think he's worth Weather Center H. Y.. Wow that's your nap visit Glenn Daybreak House good. That wasn't a right okay. Youtube back in action next week very much showed John good good good so my and we will be looking at the Alfred Dunhill Championship Championship. was that south.

I'm back in Florida doing the the remote, saying the COVID remote sportscasting thing. If, the. Kitchen table like we've been doing it for four and a half months. What time? Do. You get to do it from a kitchen table like we've been doing this show for four and a half months Dan Alana kitchen table stop at this time they put us in a box in the studio So who knows man we need to normalcy in our lives but well? NO DOUBT Well, how normal does it feel I? Mean we're on the eve of this tournament starting the schedule has been completely turned upside down some things have been postponed. Some things had been canceled. What's the sense you're getting out of northern. California. This week about the PJ championship. I think it. It seems normal golf's been going on for the better part of two months. you know watching Major League baseball watching the NBA watching the NHL in the last couple of weeks and couple of nights. it seems to me anyway there. Maybe you think differently that golf seems about as normal as can be without sands on the weekends it seems Kinda strange. I think the NHL looks and sounds terrific and be a little bit lasting baseball looks the strangest. with either of those fake people in the stands are just grandstands that are not tarped over but I think golf you know on Saturday and Sunday seems awfully strange. But the first couple of days I think people can kinda ease they do it because it's been going on for about eight weeks. Now I think I think all Simpson's go. Everybody's jacked up for a major championship. Yeah I would say though, just to take that one step further and there's nothing obviously there's nothing anybody can do about this steve as you and everybody listening knows. But when you talk about playing with no fans, that's a lot of golf like that's the way people play I wonder if you think though that will take on any different impact because it's a major and usually having the majors the most attended golf tournaments out there if the players will feel that differently this weekend because it's a major championship and not. Just along the PJ tour schedule. Oh there's no doubt it will definitely feel different. But again, aside from Tiger who played a few weeks ago at the memorial in. Dublin. Ohio. The most you know for the most part, you know the great majority of the players at the top of the world rankings have played a ton of golf. Would know fans and gotten used to the lack of energy or the ADRENALIN flowing on into it back because people aren't there or however you want to look at it and I think that it'll be different this week It's a major as opposed to a World Golf Championship last week and regular quote unquote regular toward events the previous six or seven weeks I think it'll be a little different. But again, you know for the most part, these guys have kind of gotten used to it and I think it's just GonNa be odd that there are no fans there this week in a major championship is on the line but. I think they kinda realized and recognized how to get their job done how to go about their business without the energy of the fans I'll tell you one thing that it'll be interesting. Normally when you're one of the best players in the world that a major. Where the rough is higher, the fairways are skinnier and the Greens are faster because it's more on the line and regular events. There's so many fans watching that if you hit the ball outside the fairway a little bit. The grass is usually trampled down because there's so many fans there. So when you go to your golf ball in the rough, it normally isn't as bad as it would be. There were no fast. So now with no fans there. Rough is going to be nasty and if you miss the fairway here. At Harding Park, you're going to be punished. An interesting Steve Sands Golf, channel NBC sports joining us on extra thirteen sixty. The only other thing I would ask you again and defer to you on is. Because if you're in a group with Tiger Woods, if you're in a group, with Phil, Mickelson right like if you're in a group with rory mcelroy. Those top ten players sometimes, we wonder about those guys playing with the Mega Stars of the sport because the galleries are much bigger than there ever used to playing in front of to your point they've gotten used to playing without him but do you think in any way does that lend itself to benefiting some of the players who aren't the Mega Stars of the sport that they don't really have to worry about playing with tigers galleries or fills galleries or on and? On it goes without question I think that would Jordan Smith said, who is a mega star a couple of weeks into the restart when the pandemic started and then they restarted golf at the colonial in Fort Worth Texas he said he thinks it's a little bit easier for people to win because there are no fence and the pressures not as ratcheted up the energy level isn't as high that you're adrenaline isn't flowing as much and for the great players. Used to being so jacked up but have all those fans there. and. Then they got used to that for the guys who as you said, who might not be as big a stars some of those big names when they do play well, and they do get paired with a big name player. I don't think it's nearly as intimidating without grandstands without hospitality tents without fans without anybody out there you would have to think that it would be less intimidating to play with those great players. So I would say disadvantage to the great players and advantage to some of those other guys, and perhaps could have a chance to win this week as a great point. All right you mentioned Jordan speed to what I was gonNA. Ask You about it SORTA you you don't Steve. But a lot of us who liked the game who watched the sport on television? We talk a lot about rory mcilroy needs to complete the career Grand Slam and we SORTA forget that Jordan. Spieth is just a PJ championship away from doing the same thing and you said he's still a megastar and I was GonNa ask where's he at because I don't I don't hear a lot about Jordan speed that feels like I don't want to suggest that he peaked I know it's way too premature to say something like that he's got a long career. He's still really really good. But. But where's he at and what sort of story do you think he is this week plan the PGA championship well, because of what you said at the start of that and he is one of the top five or six story long dog of the week I mean when you have a chance to. Achieve something that only five players in the history of the sport have done by winning occur. Grand. Slam. You know that every time he plays the PGA championship for the rest of his career. He's only twenty seven years old for the rest of his career that's going to be the biggest thing if he hasn't won one yet so. It's a massive story he is. Not Playing Break Off but he's playing better than he has Guess recently, he's playing a little bit better than he has the last eighteen or twenty four bucks. So do I think he's got a chance to win this week and he george always a chance to do I think is going to win no I don't think his game is sharp enough. And I don't think is is competence level which is always high, which always gives them a chance to win. I. Don't see how it can be as high as it has been when playing. Well, it's been more than three years since he last one, it was the open championship royal. Birkdale so I just I need to see you know he's wasn't that we talked about this all the time. This falls goes into the category of Sergio before the Masters and those kinds of players I, need to see him a win one before I pick him. And I I. Just I'm not ready to pick him just yet haven't seen four days out of him. Recently to be able to say, I think Jordan's GonNa win the pitch yet. Is there some reason why his his game has fallen off? You know a lot of theories that he hit the ball sharply some of those other great players probably not a short game is wizard like like Phil Mickelson wizardry luck. putting some twenty fourteen to twenty seventeen his putting was so great there I remember talking Tiger Woods thing. I never put it that well as Tiger Woods race player of his integration. So the putting slips a little bit. And you know they're not a Lotta blowouts in golf. A lot of one two shots victories after four days. So if he misses one or two putts day that he was making when he was really, really hot. At, eight shots for the week four to eight shots for the week. That's the difference between winning and losing and the difference between winning and giving yourself a chance on Sunday afternoon. So Unless that putter heats up again and he hits the ball a little bit square bit more squarely I. Don't think it's going to happen. He's GonNa be fine. He's not done. He's not out of the you know he's not out of it by any means but right now, I just said he hasn't climbed out of that hole just yet. The two time defending champ The this tournament is Brooks Koepka. And that might surprise people I remember us talking years ago about Brooks kept a win in the US Open and we thought he was a one trick pony just because he can bomb it. You know three hundred and fifty and take away a lot of yardage there get it up close, etc. He's. He's shown a little bit better than we might have thought a couple years back Steve not. Maybe you but the rest of us here interesting guy just reading a little bit and reminding myself on Brooks. Koepka this week gave an interview to Golf Week magazine where city sort of a loner out there. It doesn't really have a lot of friends on tour that's by design. It's got enough friends in his life. He doesn't need to be friends with a bunch of Golfers I. Guess. I. I see a lot of people picking in this week, and you wouldn't think that for a guy who's won the tournament back to back years just because the field is so good but I guess the way he played last week especially the way he played lay people really like his chances upcoming this weekend. Yeah he is an assassin out there. And he is just so good and he sticks boss Darren it's hard to not like brisk this week he hasn't played well at all in this restored. since the Kovic started golf stop is the players and picked up again a colonial, and then all of a sudden you find something last week at a world championship event in Memphis where he was the defending champion comes in runner up at a great chance to win didn't execute well. Late on Sunday to get that victory that Justice Thomas ended up getting. But coming into this week. I, mean there's nobody better in the last couple of years at major championships in Brooks and he's coming in with more confidence that he had entering last week in Memphis. So without question, Brooks Koepka is going to be one of the favorites this week and I would be shocked if he's not in contention late Sunday to win. And did you see that piece in golf week ago? I'm guessing very, very few amount of people listening saw that I just think it's interesting because he's had success and he's sort of suggested that. You know his approach to his fellow golfers isn't one out of resentment but that it helps him be successful that he doesn't have a bunch of friends on tour and he doesn't play a bunch of practice rounds with other professional golfers. Yeah. No, he's. He's the Kinda Guy who goes about his business. However, which way he chooses and he has the cachet to do it. He has the confidence to do it, and he certainly has the game to do it guarantees. Great player especially in big spots like Major. Championships. Go back to speeds. All right speech like the nicest Guy All American great kid and I mean he's just a wonderful guy. Brooks kept is also a really nice guy. He just goes about it in a different way than most and his idea. Of Success is not only winning but doing it his way to steal the Frank July and he's going to do it my way like Sinatra did and he thinks that he has to have a little bit of a chip on his shoulder a little bit of hatred in Sports. That's not a real life sense towards his opponents not everybody feels that way about the way they go about playing at the highest level in a traveling circus where very few people succeed on the PGA tour in that stratosphere, but it works for him. There I mean. My Gosh does he play well majors? He was defending US Open champion now is the two time defending PGA champion and he's one of the two or three favorites coming out of the week. So he's not a one hit wonder. He's not a guy who's just going to go away he he's a guy who wants these big ones and want some badly in one of the things that interesting about him that I totally agree with them. If you're a great player like Brooks to me the major the easier tournaments to win. Because half the field is too scared to go after it and get it. You know they don't have the confidence that Brooks kept guest. They don't feel the same way that he feels under pressure under the gun like that, and he has always said, he thinks that these are the easier events to win. If you're a great player because off the board, guys can win each and every week on the PGA tour. It's much more difficult for them to win. In weeks like this. Interesting Tigers thirty five to one has been considerable conversation about the weather. It's cold. He hasn't played a time. It's foggy there. It's the bay area in the middle of the summer right? It's like the coldest winter ever said Mark Twain. Is Summer spent in San Francisco? You expecting him to. Do anything noteworthy this weekend. I don't I hate saying that tiger. Golf be great for you know everybody it'd be great for sports the whole thing but. Like you said that weather out there. the cool cold damp windy conditions. It was ninety five humid. Give a much better chance. Having said that it's tiger always there. You never know what he's going to do. He's the greatest player of his generation. He still has an incredibly high golf acumen. I I just don't think he's going to be able to put together for four consecutive days. I don't think his body will hold up four consecutive days and that type of weather. and there's nothing to do with this game I. Think he's not going to rotate as much executive get it out there as much rickie Fowler joke yesterday this morning at the golf course playing like nine thousand yards because it's so wet and so damp and you know it's just hard and I don't see tiger getting himself into the mix on Sunday. wouldn't completely stunned me but I just don't see it happening I I. I don't see him being factor on the weekend not at this PGA Championship. Now you know next. US. Pakistan on NBC, which means all being Torrey Pines. Next June. That's right. The US Open which means you got to bust out your wallet by me a couple of news at some point. By. The but anyway, I don't know what the weather will be like a Torian June. but you know it's not warm hot, humid and California not those places and those are tough conditions for tiger at this stage of his career with his baggage. The guest bedroom set for you for for next June who is the official Steve. Sands pick of the week who you with. I I appreciate the accommodations Accu. Got I hate to you know me really well Dan I hate going with chuck. It's Gottschalk. Chuck written all over Justin Thomas is playing great golf's number one player in the world. Last Two Times Harding Park held eight championship number one player in the world has won it. I don't think it's going to be just another. Kept things going to win three straight PGA's and match Walter Hagen as the last man to do that, and that was like thousand years ago. So I think it's attempted Justin Thomas. Rory mcilroy type elites, horsepower kind of with. A great speaking with you. Glad to hear everything's going. Well, we encourage everybody to watch all the coverage upcoming this weekend on the Golf Channel Steve Sands Your gentlemen thank you very much. We appreciate it. We'll talk to you soon. Goodbye. Thank you. You got it Steve. Sands NBC sports is welcome here anytime and I don't just mean on this show. I mean right here inside of the wine cave.

I. Don't know who's making vacation plans or how far people looking but just make sure you don't make your plans for next year gotTa be here Darin Brooks cut because seems like you're kind of fellow he sort of like, yeah I don't really pal around with a bunch of these golfers got other things going on in my life I have enough friends I don't need to be with them. Why do I have to be friends with them? Why just choose my own friends? Yeah. SAN says like would want Jordan speak to marry your daughter but it's very, very wholesome very wholesome. You definitely want your daughter to marry Jordan spieth but like you would wanna go out on long weekend we want to go out with Brooks Koepka That's the guy right there. That's the guy. Kept Tiger. Current edition of Tiger or yeah. Yeah. That's the tough one. Yeah. Well. Yeah I like that though he? SORTA. Gave, this interviews I don't really that's good. I.

So did the city or whoever it was, who's in charge of such things that they pick one of the plans for the midway site for the sports arena site did I see that or I should probably know this since I do host the show over on Kogo and it's Wednesday and I haven't even made mention of it yet. By the way really game shows toby night we talked. The San. Diego County Registrar voters, right. Okay. Man I did not know some of this stuff like how much has changed now number one we're all get whether if we're registered voters, we're all gonna get mail in ballots. You don't have to sign up for that every one of us is going to get a mail in ballot if you're registered to vote. Good. Did you know that I it? We'll solve a postal system that won't be shutdown. Did you know and I did not know this. Do you know that statistically in San Diego this is shocking. What percentage of people do you think vote by mail already? Okay I'M GONNA go. Twenty nine percent, Jim. What would you say? I'll go thirty, five percent. According to the registrar voters who should know such things of course, they would now seventy five percent of people in San Diego? County vote by mail already, you cannot have signed up to do it in November already. Do it that way? Did IT Super Tuesday? Did it in November? That's the way people here vote I was really I felt like such a loser because you and I and Jim Obviously we don't you don't vote by mail do you Get your sticker right I've come into the studios wearing your voted sticker. Where's your location around here? It's a couple of blocks over Oregon street something like that. Okay. Okay. I know where it is I don't know where it is but I know where it is. It's close by it's pretty it's pretty easy. SORTA like it. Okay. But I didn't realize I was. So in the minority on this that all the twenty five percent of the people in San Diego County actually vote. Vote in person. I was blown away right because you're an in person person. Sure Jim. What do you do? I go in person. So there you go Jacko's and person as well I'm sort of like I don't really know anybody who votes by mail but apparently seventy percent I was blown away by that. That comes from Michael Vu directly last night who joined us on Kogo so that was interesting. Now we're all going to get these ballots. It doesn't mean that you have to use them. It just means that you're going to get them and you can vote by now why don't you I'm curious have you prefer the tradition of masking I'm asking you is the reason you I I kinda like it yeah, I mean. I like on. I don't have a really good reason if you got. If you must know I really don't. I, don't really have a good reason. You have stamps demille relate anything out. They will send. They're also sending you a self, a draw, a stamped postage already paid. Now. Here's the other thing I did note. So they are going to go going to move from fifteen hundred polling places fifteen hundred plus polling places in San Diego, and this is where people are going to raise an eyebrow. To about two, hundred and fifty. But the reason they're doing that is because they don't want you go into like your Jack put it last night very funny. Jack Jack said they don't want you go onto your local mortuary to vote under normal circumstances because that's a small tiny confined place. So they're going to have what's called super polling places which are bigger places think like high school gymnasiums they. Didn't announce them and I see what you're doing and I know there's always eyebrows to be raised when we think about making it harder for people to vote they're not gonNA have outdoor polling places with tents because the whole thing the whole idea right now has been to not go indoors. You want to do outdoors as much as possible whether it's restaurants and hair salons. Didn't mention that I don't know that that is or isn't he wasn't ready to announce bigger type open bigger open air. I'm not saying, yes or I'm just saying Mary. But here's the other thing because you're like wow. Well, for people who for whatever reason they liked the tradition of going and voting in person or they don't get their ballot, right like that could happen. But. You also now, how about this I was shocked to learn this last night. That you will have three days to vote. You can vote in person on either October thirty first November first in Halloween. Going to be trick or treating. So that's good point, but you can now vote for four days thirty first first, second and third the polling places the super polling places will be open. So there will be fewer of them, but they will be open for four days. So there won't be one. Traditional Election Day where you've got to go I'm sorry they went from fifteen hundred to two fifty. Yeah. That seems rather than does but again, you're focusing on that and I understand it but we're all going to get mail in ballots number one, number two, the polling places are going to be open for four days not one day for twelve hours four days. For, one, two, three, four. So you have four days. Wow. I did not know any of that before the registered came on and joined us last night. And I'm just here to relay that information because I want you all about. Forty I'm like a WNBA player I want everybody to vote. That is an that is I'm sorry. I know some of you hate sports politics intersecting. But buckle up because it's going to be very interesting ninety days. What's going to happen with a lot of athletes here on college campuses and showing up at football stadium there's certain teams that are giving players an entire staff. Departments the entire day off so they can go ahead and vote. With those WNBA players did though I mean that's it's thing to show up where a shirt that says, hey, vote or show up and wear a shirt that says call for all that says vote for the opponent of the person that owns this team vote for. That was. Low Yep. I'm sorry I apologize to my friend Barry Axelrod who has told me over and over again that he's been voting by mail for ten years. He's an upstanding citizen that Barry axelrod. I'm I don't know why I'm shocked that you're in the minority on this. Well, in the minority at seventy percents of Veterans Shaw seventy, five percent according to the registrar last night. So there you go. I'm happy to share that information because I think democracy is kind of important. And I think people should going about on one of those four days or by mail. By males and absolutely safe way to go ahead and get things sodas the road I send my bills. That's how I get money. The male is fantastic because, of course, showed us the registrar send beard. I mean to send packages to Brinson love the male. Great. Love the ups then to Fedex Guy All ex guy brought a nice bottle of bubbles today spn. Oh? Really. Staying for a while. This zoom. How.

But you really WANNA players running the risk getting suspended or injured potentially. An a short season. I. Would think a little bit about that. You know this isn't one sixty two or a guy can miss a couple of weeks. I would think a little bit about that and what point it is you're trying to make, but that's just me grandma's boys seven o'clock on independent film channel thirty, five year old stone or moves in with his grandmother.

Because we're retired by immoral talking about Patino how he's going to be using those that's outing there and things up a good point it's hard to it's hard to pick up personality. Because usually you do that like the whole reason why we like having people on the air when they're ever available is that you like to go in a different direction you don't want to just ask press conference questions. But like all you can do on these press conferences asked press conference questions can't deviate. You can't take these guys down sidestreets kids. They're there for business and the other reports aren't having it in the Times Limited. So it's sort of. Like. We're not getting a chance to really know this manager. I will say it's been very boring. I appreciate the time I mean it hasn't been like not getting a sense of smell that's that's the problem. That's big. Mean I, think that mostly.

B- damn joe podcast is presented by the capital one venture car when you are an unlimited double miles on every purchase your next <unk> trip closer than you think capital one. What's in your wallet. This is the dan lebatardshow with this to got spot cass john mcenroe on i take probably not where they wanted to start on the news but they had already booked john mcenroe and usually that's a good booking but i guess they're probably just going to talk to him about andrew luck because a lot of pimple are talking about a seismic shocking decision decision that is seismic and shocking for a number of reasons not the least of which is we all kind of thought this guy loved football and the idea idea that he's out of it makes me feel like it's more of an indictment of the sport then of him that he broke his body. He broke his mind and at the end with colts colts fans booing they broke his heart broke every part of him before he got to thirty and i know he's not a martyr today but i want you to consider for a second how many hundreds of millions millions of dollars he just left off the table. Given the dak prescott is asking for thirty million dollars a year. It must have been awfully hard awfully the hard to snub his city his teammates his supporters his relationships and hundreds of millions of dollars he must have been in a great deal of physical physical and emotional pain to choose it that days before the season billy is heartbroken back. There billie is putting together montage. It's not ready on time of andrew luck sadness. He says he's been made more sad going through the archives of andrew lock because he's a show favored here than when some people around here have died and he has to do the montage. Here's the thing this could have been ready to start the show but i wanna give this the proper respect and attention it deserves and as you said yes. This is one of the saddest projects i've ever had to do because i can see right now. Your eyes are fighting back tears fighting it back because i realize he's he's just gone on from football and he made this decision and this is the right decision for him and yada yada but it's very sad for us like this is a very sad day for me and i don't want to make this about about me but i'm going to miss him so much and i was so sad dan. I watched the whole press conference twenty four twenty five minutes however long. I want to give them a hug. What do we do to him mm-hmm. What did we do to him as a sport as americans. What did we do to this poor andrew luck. Well you mad at him. No the opposite it's got a little mad at him because god's voice of the fan and not surprisingly stu gotz things he should have been booed leaving the field because a lot of people understand the frustration asian and anger of hey man. The season was all set up. Why a few days before the season starts. Are you lobbying this grenade at colts fans. The ants who have gotten very used to having a quarterback stable for twenty damn years twenty damn years at that position it has it has to be the most entitled quarterback base in the entire your country where you've had a i guess the patriots but you've had twenty damn years of exceptional quarterback play and he took it away from you right before the season started the way those fans who are at the stadium found out was pretty unprecedented. It was at so in that moment right. They were shocked. They had no idea there in the stands watching the game. They're thinking they're team is going to be a super bowl favorite favorite to come out of the a._f._c. and then all of a sudden they learned the news of andrew luck and so what do they do they boo and then what happens we criticize them for boeing so we can't they can't tell andrew luck how to live his life but we are perfectly co <hes> comfortable as a media telling fans had to live their lives and ed to me. That seems patently absurd. Fans don't care about the athletes and fans care about themselves. They'll care about andrew luck. They care about andrew luck. As long as andrew. Luck is playing every sunday thrown throw for four hundred yards and three touchdowns and delivering victories. That's all they care about. A mistake gets made all the time. Though is that fans think it's a relationship when it's a transaction in an andrew luck thought it was a relationship and realized that the end it's a transaction it's not and in sickness and in health. It's just in health they. They don't love you in sickness unless you die then they'll love you if you die. If you're sick enough to actually die then they'll love you but it's not in sickness sickness and in health. It's only in health. It's how it's directly proportional to how good you make me feel and if you take it away from me. It's a dysfunctional relationship. It's not allowed to be a relationship. Let's it's a dysfunctional one because otherwise it's the transaction andrew luck was heartbroken at the end his body and mind we're already done and then you broke his heart because that had to be hard for him to do to choose. I'm going to choose happiness. I'm gonna choose me. I'm going to choose myself. I'm going to choose my health. I'm gonna choose my new bride. I'm sure it was difficult. I'm certain it was difficult and i have no issue with andrew luck doing it. I have issues with everyone blasting the fans for booing andrew luck for doing well. Here's here's what's happening fair enough right. You have more on that. Excuse me i didn't know about you. This is what's happening. People are taking sides on this because doug gottlieb. You've been dan dockage are giving voice to those angry fans. Doug gottlieb is doing it on twitter by saying retiring because rehabbing his quote too hard is the most millennial thing ever hashtag andrew luck. Dan dockage says quote. I have family working in steel. Mills cops teachers making far less than this guy is tired heard my backside and so the people who came after him were interesting because troy aikman came after gottlieb and troy aikman doesn't come after anybody know troy aikman's that's total bull bleep doug what qualifies you to decide how someone should live their life so you're now the authority on what motivates andrew luck and if his the decisions don't fit into what you think is best for him then you rip him. Guess that keeps you employed on f s one nice. Everyone knows what he was doing. Chop the f. s. once like hey i work for fox two more key america's game but torrey smith just nuke dot leave because again gottlieb's just tweet is retiring because rehabbing his quote too hard is the most millennial thing ever torrey smith berries gottlieb with you stole credit cards cards because working was too hard that is rudolph. That's a collegiate crime from doug gottlieb. That's still haunting him. A quarter order century later torrey smith has not forgotten but here's steve beuerlein and steve berlin sort of to me represents average quarterback ax in personality in play and everything just the height of totally average commitment to the position that caused ause the the the the the banal things you have to say in front of your lock her like <hes> all the stuff that that an average a totally average quarterback her back is steve. Berlin represents better than anybody to the godly millennial criticism. Pablo had a good tweet that i think should apply you can't be called the millennial if you have a flip phone phone burr lines saying i'm a huge andrew luck fan always have we have been but this i cannot defend or justify no scenario where retirement is defensible to do this to his teammates organization fans and the n._f._l. Two weeks before the season is just not right. I love the guy but this will haunt him and what i would say burr line line is you probably don't know angela physical pain because he kept trying to get back and he kept trying to get back and he had set back after physical setback and i don't know how much pain rain or how hopeless he felt after already his shoulders been botched then it becomes a calf and frank reich is talking about this might be kevin durant situation three m._r._i.'s. We can't figure out what's wrong now. It's the ankle and it's medicine and medicine and medicine and i'm sorry if i'm andrew luck and i've got a new wife now. I don't need to be developing opiate addiction for you but i'm guessing burr line. I'm probably wishes he had the talent that andrew lock cat. You're right. He is perfectly average. She's an eighty quarterback rating for his career that is average when you look up average quarterback in the dictionary steve berlin's. It's face comes up a guy so and i guarantee your berlin wishes. He can go back and play again the n._f._l. With andrew locks kind of talent and would give anything to have the ability to do that but then here's here's what people see they see the shawn watson playoff game can barely breathe rib injury and he takes a bus to jacksonville to play in that game. That's what fans expect from there gordon dum dum yeah and give and give it time because andrew luck was in that cycle. He gave voice to it. He said the hardest part is like fighting my way back from that other injury injury that forced me to miss the entire year and doing an entire offseason rehab and not being able to practice with my team. I told myself if it ever got to that point again. I'm simply not going to do it and he sucked to his gones. Stugatz is arguing on behalf of the expectations in the entire culture of pressure all of it. It's what i told you but kevin durant stu got you forget real. Quick the the everyone everyone was putting pressure on kevin durant to come back and look at what happened and who has to live with that rehab nobody but him no old buddy but him but everybody and that's and that's basketball. That's totally safe football. It's worse football and hockey are the worst cut it off your finger and keep playing do what chris simms didn't play through a spleen leakage that <hes> you know has you on the cusp of death that night andrew one of andrew alexa many any injuries is a lacerated kidney but we're so accustomed to seeing players do whatever it is they have to do that. Ends now. Look bronchitis retired and everyone understood stood. Yeah that looked like it hurt being him looked like it hurt and he's bigger than everyone else. Everyone understood on grunk yeah a lot of surgeries. That seems like it sucked. I i understand why you would leave but he gave ableson entire offseason to prepare dan. This was before the caesar peter for that. I live this with ricky williams. It was horrible. I lived it because of the timing. There ain't no oh right time. There is a better time but there ain't no right time to quit on your city your supporters your teammates are going to call you.

Bothers is making kylie anticipated return to h._b._o. On august twenty fifth doing johnson returns as spencer stress more a retired football football star about to face his biggest challenge yet also starring golden globe nominee john david washington with guest stars like odell beckham junior and other celebrities and athletes even russell. Oh brand returns as the c._e._o. Of sports x. and extreme sports media company the stakes of never been higher spencer tries to leave his past behind and reach the highest levels of the sport. It's not where you start. It's where you finish bothers. Air sundays at ten thirty pm only on h._b._o. Donlevatar man libertad. You're a wimp you. You never put your hand in dirt. It's football fans game. Be a man get concussed stugatz. The a man ebbed scrambled drool out. Your mouth drew me man. This is talk show where there's two guys on e._s._p._n. Radio geir mo put it on the poll at lebatardshow should colt fans get a refund because they're asking for for one <hes> they are asking for one roy came in during the break and told me there is now that request and i understand didn't pay that money to see jacoby percent then that is correct to god's was arguing during the break. The cold should trade ally manning that would be such a a great story. I mean daniel. Jones has been great. You guys like that story. I love that story and credit to you for waiting at least one segment before you got bored with the andrew luck shocking news and started advancing on conspiracy theories when we do in the andrew lucked x._f._l. Segment let's go. We need to move on. I mean it feels like a funeral. It really does and i'm just saying listen the culture ulcer and win now mode and there's a quarterback available who's less in the familiar wave on we haven't we haven't gotten to the signed cabinet. Good situation the night after andrew lucked joins his dad in the x._f._l. Wait with bated breath here. It is only the most stugatz thing ever ever fifteen minutes into our show to be to go straight to both both phrases that are a plague in my life and move on and win now. It is all about win mode. I love windows. Emma guillermo is god's favourite mode win now mode food minutes into the show. We're not even done digesting the thoughts on this or playing. The sounds that we have in students is already. Who do i need to trade for. How do i make my fantasy team better now. This one's kind of tricky because i believe jacoby brusett to be presently better than both cabinet and eli manning but sure let's read as well. That's the other thing. Eli manning's been washed for three seasons but the story story isn't as good. I mean imagine eli playing quarterback where his brother wants played quarterback at taking a team win now mode to a super bowl. I have that that that'd be a great story seriously before twelve because he lamenting now stink. This is one of the super bowl favorites though i've never seen anything like this very sanders was shocking because he was was so close to the record but no one thought that the lions could win the super bowl. This is a tinos being picked as a super bowl team well. I would say that this is what happens to bad organization right right because detroit is that a couple of guys quit on them. Miami ricky williams <hes> except the gronk just quit <hes> on the patriots gronk got so tired of even the winning thing that he was like never mind. I don't wanna do this anymore. This hurts too much. Andrew luck took a physical beating andrew. Luck is not in any way a quitter you don't you would have never thought if i asked you before. This weekend is andrew. Lock a quitter. Your answer answer would have been no if i would have asked you for list of people who've verbally give voice to loving football in a way that's unusual like just love it so much that they can't stop talking. Talking about andrew luck would be very high on that list. He's the guy when a defender on an opposing team's sacked him he would pat him on the helmet like he loved football. I ask you to consider consider. What kind of pain was this human being in that he chose this that he chose. Hundreds of millions of dollars ores in earnings never mind that he chose to disappoint his city his organization the relationships in the organization his teammates what what kind of pain he must have been at home depressed with his new wife in his ear all the time. We don't have to live this way. We don't have to live of like this. Dan i will say this going back to the draft. You'll probably get mad at me for saying this but going back to the draft their war people questioning because of education stanford because because of family and they have money because andrew lock is andrew luck. You'll brent was one of them by the way he's a hall of famer and that's the point. I think you'll get there. Were people questioning his commitment to football football his long term commitment to football because he had so much going for him and had a lot of options. They did question his passion and love coming out of the draft. I remember it. They did question jane his love and passion for the sport football. They did coming out of stanford. They really did people did seal brent. So how do we get him in the monday night. Football booth flushes billy. Where are you on this montage whereas you got tears in your eyes. You're you're you're you're struggling today because we're all gonna miss this andrew lock and we're sitting here today sort of marveling at this <hes> stugotz. His wife is mad at adam schefter furious at adam schefter really mad. I get that she's not the only one she wanted jeff to sit on that news so andrew lock it every proper retirement ceremony yeah. He should've had that next day. I don't want to rush this so we'll have it by thursday. Your home is important. That's why geico helps make it easy to save on condo insurance because home is more than just a place home is where you took minimalism too far because there's only one chair in your entire condo in your only entertainment is one card not even deck of cards but a single card and all your guests have to share one plate and one fork but you're convinced that less stuff means more freedom. The geico insurance agency could help protect the overly minimalist broom closet you call home call geico and see how easy it is to switch and save on condo insurance. Donlevatar is shop no a longer high school class of any sort. I don't think so. I think there's only in the movies i i don't know anyone who ever went to high school where they had like woodwork as a class my dad did you made lamp actually stugatz. I'm trying to think of more useless contribution to the show then my father made a live in woodwork. They wouldn't lamps yeah. Evidently in roy's rolls evidently roy grew up with the hardscrabble times of wouldn't lamps made by your father and ice high school like wired and everything yeah yeah. We worked yeah. No public school systems really failing us. I could make a lamp if i had to put it on the poll. Could you make a lamp. These suzanne suzanne live at our show with two guys on e._s._p._n. Radio rory mcilroy you did it again like spending. I wrote take out adequate entire break practicing it and you did it again. It's like elroy the kid in the jetsons mac elroy rory mcelroy. It's a tough one those two hells man but i could say lama. Those mcelroy have to an i an oh. Maybe that's the problem. I didn't know that mcilroy the i added changes everything amazing raziq. If we took the you out it would fix it as well bags dead anyway one of the tour championship at thirteen under par that won't hurt. It actually mean mean today monday. Forgive you andrew lock affecting you anyway. He won the fedex cup and the biggest payout in golf history fifteen lean million dollars. Wow louisiana one. It's i literally world series title as river ridge defeated curious how eight to nothing and finally firefighters in in estacada oregon rescued a woman they said was trapped in a septic tank possibly for two to three days. They said she had to be flown to the hospital. Spital rescuers said they found her lying raw sewage with her face just above it and a tank outside her role home o officials said she lives there alone the woman's daughter who hide in her from her mother and a few days and called nine one one the fire chief says it looks like there was work being done on the septa tag there was they tracked her in the area and a whole had been dug exposing the tag and then she had fallen through about a two foot by two foot hole. Oh dear god what a horrific story for all the latest headlines and information tune into the sportscenter on e._s._p._n. Radio all throughout the day. Put it on the poll guillermo. Are there her longer three days that you can spend <hes> then three days trapped in a small place with sewage up to your chin. Wow oh wow that is worst nightmare type of stuff. Three days can't possibly ever be as long as those three days work. Ah you have not me sideways with that story famously the story of the man who was a movie one hundred twenty seven got an hour who had to cut off his own arm because he was pin between two boulders in a cave. This is worse. I mean it's put it on the poll. Guillermo what's worse. <hes> three days and you have to cut off your arm or three days trapped in a small hole with sewage not knowing if you'll ever be found weight but i get to keep my arm you get to keep your arm but you don't know when you're in it that you're there's there's an escape ongoing suet either solar right you survive and you keep all your body parts but you don't know what time that's talking about. Which is the worst three days. Amy's and i understand like you're allowed to take the other side on this having having to choose to cut off your own arm seems awful. He's playing the results. I mean he is. You've got to imagine you're in it didn't james franco shave his arm off with like a pencil will not the actor the movie yeah like it was like a dull like what was it like swiss army knife some type of deal. That movie did such a vivid <hes> job of making. You know what that feels like so we've got the sui to get to. There are annual awards show. We have to monster categories today one of them in a half hour biggest mistake from the last year. I'm sure that i will be starring in that particular silly. This is a shock to lead with because over the past two years since it was first introduced to the sui. It's been our best picture. We're coming out. The gates was something that historically has been the best picture category. You know how the oscars usually starts with like best actor best actress best supporting. Even we're coming out with a bang so its biggest mistake. We've got that for you and a half hour we have to get to wise to his wife is so mad at adam schefter. We have to get to o._j. Simpson's twitter account that is <hes> oddly charming a- and we we want to get to that but first the americans are gonna embarrassed us in basketball this year right this <hes> we just gave it to canada and we did eh game. We're gonna is a mean somewhere here to tell me how scared <hes> we should be. How panicked our situation. <hes> should be because i really fear that. We're in a situation here where <hes> serbia can blow our doors off where we're we. We might not finish top three. I i do believe this as the re this runs the risk of being the biggest international basketball embarrassment that we've had since russians were stealing games from us with the referee. Joe harris started a game. I mean how worried should we be that these americans the kemba walker is not gonna be able to save us. We're all of a sudden. The charlotte of olympic pick basketball dan. I'm terrified. I'm absolutely terrified that the sum of all fears is going to happen and what a lot of people don't realize that keep we've seen over. We have a roster full of n._b._a. Players no other country can claim that and that's nice depth is nice but the problem isn't a forty minute game if i could play janas thirty seven of them well then it doesn't matter how many n._b._a. Players i have none of them are as good as him and we all know that in basketball one player can dominate the sport. It's not even it's not even the greeks that i'm scared of it though i should be it's the serbians they play together and their coaches out here saying may god help the american no no. That's never great about the survey coaches out of your trash-talking. They think that they're better. They think they're better than us and they have. They have a reasonably confident. <hes> and i think that's the big thing here is. We've moved past the point of look. They're not afraid of us to their competent. They are confident that they can beat us and it doesn't help when we go out and we play against australia and we let patty mills with alan iverson and so. I brought this up the first game we beat them and everyone's well patty. Mills international players always granted yes but he's seven hundred years old. This isn't patty mills ten years ago. This is patty mills right now giving it to us and if we can't stop him. How are we gonna stop bogdanovich. How are we gonna stop yokich. Jaanus the like. We gotta take this stuff seriously but you know what in the big red flag was dan. The the biggest red flag was when they lost a scrimmage against the u._s._a. Select team led by luminaries like the quan jeffries and chris kilter luminaries they lost by three points and so they ran it back and then they lost by twenty one. We're in trouble. We're in trouble yeah. We're in trouble trouble and it on the poll guillermo lebatardshow. Does it mean to be official and notarized u._s._a. Basketball is in deep deep trouble. It's gonna be fun though lovable basketball underdog the little engine that could united states basketball imagine they pull it off right. I mean would it be like the miracle article on ice by the way you've followed basketball twitter some what's happening here with o._j. Simpson twitter mike <hes> last week. You told us you don't know how to a feel about this because your charm by him on twitter or yeah he's such a great follow. He's charming and the production value has really improved each and every entry. It's just really difficult for me to process because i believe he has killed two people right and so he had he launched he launched he was the real victim in this whole andrew luck accentuation because he had just drafted him an hour before and his fantasy league and o._j. Simpson has every right to why. I don't wanna say burner autumn vig later. He has every right to be angry at andrew luck. This video starts off so great because it starts with a slow pan again. The production value also one of the better lit videos of the o._j. Simpson twitter experience so far sitting at a draft table dejected having a glass of red wine. Here's the juice you could've retired hour and a half ago before pitching in my bed i mean what did i do this to me. Come out of retirement and if you're wondering that comes courtesy of react the real o._j. Thirty two on twitter ammo put on the poll did that sound like murderous rage from a charming and polished polished yours truly. J simpson doesn't refer to himself as j simpson because he knows how stain that name is. He just goes to your work treliske. Yours truly still a thing like this row j. and now i've made it a thing. I use it so much when it shows you how embarrassed i am now. I watch videos constantly johnson louis then i've been work shopping limited they go oh boy. Oh all of this might be a sui nominee for next on a second slowdown they won't be don't you remember his big alvin gentry. I mean hold on a second. Just let's tease it a little bit here because we're gonna build up to something so the audience the ends can have something to light added pressure maximum disappointments. Come oliver's impressions are variations of obama donlevatar. I don't know anything stugatz. I don't remember what i was gonna. Talk about so in those instances. What i have is a default. That just makes fun of stugatz. You're welcome. These are show with stugatz bats on e._s._p._n. Radio fifteen minutes from now we do something that is among the most popular earth thing that we do every year <hes> we do the sui awards for the entire week. We do it before football season. It's a remembrance brent of all the awful radio. We've made over the last year historically a slow newsweek right not today. That's why john john mcenroe is on. I take talking about andrew lock and the andrew lock. <hes> news has dominated. Everything here and i understand dan why some people would be upset. I also understand why andrew luck would choose andrew luck over the people who are upset many of you because he's a generational talent. Many of you are saying to yourself. What if you've about the next ten years of andrew luck's football life you're saying well what would it have been if he had played for the next ten years and he's still withholds the right hi to come back at any point. I'll be surprised if people don't start talking about romo for that gold job if you're in if you're all of a sudden in win now mode as to godson. Let's <hes> mentioned earlier while note so andrew luck finds himself in this situation where fans are angry angry. Stu gods and i ask you this if your angry at him for what would the next ten years have been like. What do you think i think he's going to be doing on a sleepless night at forty years old that he decided never mind about what if i've worked all my life for this thing that i've always is wanted that is my identity i love football fame and glory and just the game itself right and i said never mind and i'd love to have an honest conversation member station with andrew luck about what he's been honestly talking about with his wife because it doesn't seem like the colts were totally unprepared for this given that they negotiated a settlement last last week to give him all of his money so they can't be all that surprised by what just happened. The colts organization if lower week they were working on a financial angels settlement and it makes me wonder without knowing this is how you're going to have so much coverage today all over the sports news networks about this andrew lock. Ah we're going to take sides and we're going to talk about <hes> what's right and what's wrong but what's gonna be undercover today and what we are not equipped equipped to cover is the colts. Give him that money because of kindness or are they trying to avoid whatever malpractice problems they might have because they clearly really screwed up that guy's body he had a shoulder injury that we've never seen before the delayed him for months and months they get three or is this off. Season couldn't figure out what was wrong along with his leg like this is an enormous indictment of the colts medical staff that they had this treasure and they helped they participated in making quit. Even as andrew luck gave voice his press conference thanking the doctors and makes me wonder if that financial settlement. I would like to know what the private conversations were like about the financial settlement because i doubt very much that football on bent knee just said hey keep the twenty five million andrew. You're just so special to us that you can quit and we'll do it without any rancor kirk. We won't go dan gilbert on you. We won't do anything. We'll just be like oh. It's okay andrew because my guess is that they have a decent idea if they look through all their medical stuff man. This wasn't great work by us if feels like either don't sue us or when you decide to come back and play. Please come play for us. We gave twenty. I doubt it's kindness uh-huh doubt i doubt it simple altruism. I doubt the jim irsay has become buddha all of a sudden. I mean it's twenty. Five million dollars just gave him money like they never do that. If a guy quits man calvin johnson still fighting the lions over a million dollars is still fighting over it. It could be a coincidence but it's really really odd entering. This season not really knowing what the quarterback satis is. He can be practicing this week. He's really closed missed the entire season and it's ultra bizarre that happened to previous times both with colts quarterbacks. He told peter king two or three weeks ago. I will be ready for week. One no question no tower three weeks ago dan one of the reasons this is so stunning is because he had never given voiced anything other than loving football and this this. This is an act of someone who does not love it. This is an act of someone who hates what it's done to his body and mind he didn't really give it thought outside of saying that he'd never would put himself in that cycle again that he had a couple of years ago where it was rehabbing all all offseason not being able to practice with the team. He told himself that he'd never do it again but he gave voice saying that he actually never really considered this until recently. I'll be honest. I didn't imagine retiring when it didn't matter to retire until two weeks ago so shortly after telling peter king. I guess that he was going to be ready. Weak one. They broke his body. They broke his mind and at the end. Those fans broke his heart because he was he and i get it man. The fans are upset because there goes the next ten years. Those are hard to get those quarterbacks right. There goes does the next ten years and right before your season of high expectations is about to start but it hurt him and he gave voice to it in a super vulnerable moment really i'm running off the field. I'm trying to handle this the right way to tell my teammates. I the newsbreaks because adam schefter is a really good reporter her and shocking you get you don't buy your credibility has to be for schefter to report something.

Golf Postcast: US PGA Championship 2019 | Betting Preview & Tips

"At farmers insurance. We know every windshield collision has unique sound beetle bird. Boop. Drone seen it covered. It click for more. We are RBIs. Underwritten by farmer's truck fire insurance exchange center affiliates products available in every state like the candle tiger. Well, Hello and a very warm. Welcome to this week's race in post Gulf postcards of coats, US PJ championship. We can we will commu type clock from the rice in post. Joining me in the studio is the champ Joe champion how Joe very good. Thanks yourself. I'm good has your full not see places last week, saying excellent and ready to tackle the most of the Bethpage. Well, I'm not sure anyone's ready to tackle Beth phase. But we'll give it a go. And we for in. While man is always ready to tackle a monster is our very own. Steve Palmer, Steve us missing last week been up too much. Yeah. Just another baby. Welcome to no sleep up. Harry OEM father too. So yeah, he's been very tolerant. We. Will only as well. Yeah. Yeah. Muslim baby doing very well. Thomas molecule target. Palmer is is loving loss year. Excellent. This this recap lost week very quickly than Jove will happen to tournaments. Notably the British masters. I yes, I won the masters one by Marcus, not one of these very talented young Scandinavians this on the circuit the moment did really well, actually because he bogeyed the fifteenth and sixteenth and it like that was it for him. But he's seventeen and eighteen boom right back in the eighteenth one it for him and he held off Matt Wallis and Eddie pepper was one of those Robert MacIntyre so call of heavy hitters in behind him. So great performance, she notes and on the US to the Byron Nelson was gone by sung carrying one hundred twenty five to one big old price for player who's been on and off sort of frightening to do this at some point. It was a birdie-fest there on those wide fairways at trinity forest. He won by two shots from my my every and Scott piercy, Scott piercy became the. Player in in nine years on the PGA tour to win without too well to go around. So I got a whole tournament without a bogey. Wasn't quite good enough the positive five PSE. But I'm yeah, he should quite enjoy himself this week actually anything to take out from those two tournaments drunk. I think Bruce kept probably we can touch on him viscerally. We'll talk about him a bit later Shuna just kind of ambled round and finished in fourth place. You know, I never really looked like winning but perfect prep really for this week. Excellent stuff. Steve did you play any attention? I'm sure you've had your hands volts last week getting over to. Even even look at the field. So yeah, I think get involved that other things on my moment. Marcus who's been a good links go on next Raynor's seven to five years. So he's a he's a tough one phone and then soon Tang had a bad Texas form bowl. So extremely tough oin. So yeah course, glad I didn't get involved with. Gentlemen, shall we move on to this week's action? We're Bethpage Black Steve first of all let's talk the track and Owen hearing is very difficult and very long. Yeah. Yeah. You're hearing correctly. I mean, extremely difficult seven thousand four hundred thirty six yards par seventy long cost, but quite narrow as well. Very juicy rough loads of enormous powerful only two par fives. So yeah, I think winning schools can be low this week and he's playing its full length thoughts very wet spring a bit more rain this week. So it's a soft long course which demands toss driving. You gotta belong in straight. So yeah Rupe? Boo. Strike is paradoxes. We and this is a coach has been used before you think the ball Claes's will renew yoke. What do we know about the track? Well, the US DJ stuff is moved from August Somme. We must address that because they've sandwich. The they go to the majors a major month for four months now. But we have got some major form of Bethpage hosted the two thousand soon the two thousand nine US Open's toy which one the first one of that Lucas Glover won the second one. And then we go to more pieces, of course, wound from the Barclays which was the traditional that Cup playoffs. Curt and razor, the Bethpage hosted the Barclays in two thousand twelve and twenty sixteen Nick Watney, Patrick read. We are champions says for those ones. I'm sure everyone will say the the sewing that's gone viral already. Warning. The black coats is an extremely difficult course, which we recommend only for highly skilled gophers because it's of course, a public yet is honestly at a liquor weather. Sign originated yesterday in this seems to be a number of different fairies about that. Everyone's got their ideas when they first saw it ever know quite seems to but. Yeah, a stage that isn't monster. This course and with soft conditions. It's just gonna play longer and longer. So. Yeah. Guys, they hit a mile off the Tate going to be a big vantage this week, and we can't expect to score Paul seven and the coach record is. I say only sixty four. Yeah. The well, it's going to be south tough won't be US open tough. But it's still going to be very difficult given the conditions that they've the rain they've had. But yeah, I'm very much expecting a kind of sort of mid single digit score to win this. So you know, it's not gonna. A US PJ like Jason day at whistling way. One twenty it's going to be a lot lower than that. Okay interested. Let's get into it. Then Steve who do we like? And why? Really costs in Johnson doesn't Johnson should be clear favorite. Best pages. Made was talent. But double-figure process available. I was really sorry. Double ticket prices. The world ranking lie number one in the world is one twenty USO. It's all was in just over a decade. He's won this year, a comfortable victory in the WDC Mexican championship one on the European tour as well, the Saudi international one of the two thousand sixteen US open Oakland on a on a very long park seventy which has similarities the back page, and you want to open with a four hundred toe to that was the winning school that often. I'm a major was played at Bethpage DJ loves these long part seventies. He's magnificent driving. I mean, he he's going to be the best job in the world. We're we're microwave for the one that could sets him out really well on on these massive par-four. There's somebody must've far falls at some stage in DJ makes me them. He's willing to sent you traffic twice on a long past seventy at south when he's one of the twenty sixteen Bridgestone invitation on loan. Pau seventy at foreign stone. He's worn on a loan seventy close the best based off our joy down the road from Beth Fahey's, Glenn where Johnson beat Jordan's beef in a playoff for the twenty seventeen news and trust. He loves performing in front of New York crowds. He called big fan club in new support and Johnson Space and not set twenty seventeen tools and trust. And as well as I Glen oak success. He's made in USO who came in New York. He wanted to turning stone championship in two thousand eight he wanted to twenty eleven bucks. He's in New Jersey. So grateful around it lost major stage in New York. The the US open mouths Chevy finished third. Best buy in particular. He finished full cheer fair and the two thousand and on USO, but I was very early in his career subsequent visits for the Barclay finish third in the twenty twelve bucks eighteenth in the twenty sixteen Barkley. The course he's all do for him. The the atmosphere or think you relish and the three weeks. He's just that off. I think we're perfect for all in and out some technical issues. You have destroyed the monsters. He actually thinks he's five for most round soobee. He said the face of his driver, but come to flatten. So for law around soothing two-thirds around sued. He's playing with that draws with this handicap Gusta over the weekend of the mossy switched from the Tatum. Eight and five to the teammate and six so it's remarkable to switch to a different thoughts draw the mid major, and he was experimenting with new driver shops that week to the spot. He finished second you finish second. We'll gossiping born just the shore so incredible. And then he threatened to win the heritage next time out before the wheels came off in the baton on Sunday. But we'll worry about the heritage venue doesn't suit him. He was just hitting too many drivers use overaggressive. He got punish best pages. Much more as compensation and the only thing those three weeks he spent most three weeks, he's at all. If he spent then getting his throwing the spec, ROY which I think he would have done that means he what about someone's of city with his finger balance, the putting green dust and Josie carrots. He loves which you busy switches pause on a win because he's at that focused on the draw. I think it was stick to the properties. Been using. And that's fun that used news because dust jerseys putting as whether the Everett is this year is fit in the US Tolstoy getting cutting stats so on expected and improve driving performance from Johnson, Bethpage I'm expecting the same level of putting which has been good this year. And I think now that's up to a second major Dietrich. Strong words not along the the way there as well. Joey agreement. What that yeah. Come really describe anything. Steve said, I'm a big fan at DJ this week as well. He mentioned his putting has been brilliant this share and pioneer greens. I'm Bethpage this week as well. He loves putting on Paulaner, sir. Yet DJ is offering. He's a great this week as well. Stay just quickly drew little bit deeper into Boston Johnson was one major to his nine was not one more. No easy to win Davies late bloomer law. These kids come straight to into the game in that teams dust and took a little bit longer to get going. He's obviously on a law rules issues through the is Cutler majors away to rules indiscretions. I haven't got any concerns about his mental capacity to wit. So we made you champion, Jim. I think he's a Linke is strong enough to become a prolific major champion. So the all got no concerns about Dustin Johnson. Mentally, and our think technically this course's made for. Apply that we haven't seen in recent weeks. In fact, since Don in the the famous green jacket is missed the woods Adua apiece. Chelsea stave saw gay. Yeah. I mean, obviously if I wasn't a fan, man. I'd love to see you talk a win. I mean fifty thousand one for the grand slam the star of the speculative play. Because I thought we contended every major do think do think he's driving willing to go closer. He's driving his improve this year. But he shouldn't be going for favoritism phrase. We can't be in the stake in plan driving north Hollywood strength and soft long Bethpage is drivers track. So you know for me. I mean, his masters victory was obviously, you know, fantastic. But you know, much much much easier to predict because he was playing in his twenty second masters when he wanted Gustloff mums twenty two masters, and you know, that cool knowledge in comfort which dissociates down the stretch. But he's only competed three times best patients north since two thousand twelve. Teed up there with a with a school cartoons pocket. He finished thirty eight in. Yeah. So this is a much tougher toss in the mosses yet say he's almost half the price. I mean statistically if you look at the the Jarvis stats, which was the sixth longest draw from US tour when he when he won a best patient twenty in two thousand and two seventeen years later is the fifty second longest drug on the US store. To be out muscle this week boy and the young guns over sitting too. I was thinking consent one of those younger guns because he's not such a with us Napa, Rory McElroy. This would be surely a Koos sound perfect for him safe. Yeah. You're really great cool south for Rory soft long difficult driving tests, ROY up history. He was tenth in the two thousand nine US open at Bethpage, but he was poor in the two bucks. He's there. He is rubbish and the two bodies. They flock to the masters in the last major Yasser won a major for almost five years now and disappointing around the quail hollow lost on that. When he was a short process to win that got into round four. So yes, a few negatives against macaroni oil prefer Dustin Johnson similar pros who we get through the rest of you'll picks. I want to get you from his the major specialist books. Cooker? Yeah. I mean, he's been inconsistent doesn't he he's not been putting well, I don't think planning sexist last week was very helpful very massive wide. Open fairways that he won't have luxury at Bethpage. You just saw that waste of energy planning last week. Yes. Play law hold on Sunday that will whether delays early in the tournament. But yeah. Yeah. As you say the killing of more than majors, he won three of the law, seven majors, ease, and he won the last major in New York. He won the loss. USPGA each tied. Second in the last major the masters, so yeah, amazing major credentials is it impossible to rule out. But again off the market leaders mean Dustin Johnson is the one who will be shocked if he doesn't concerned, you know, the others can do without. On July this week save the next best is Zander shefali or never usually like backing agents in any tournament. But the last time this was set up for a major was ten years ago. So I don't think she failure that huge just advised and being Bethpage bird. And I think you fall in love with this lab immediately is rock solid from T degrees. Such a smooth swing effortless power. Superb course management for one so young they twenty-five, but very mature head on young shoulders always seem grinding out at pause and giving giving DJ most worry about a means. Your failures majors record is is awesome. Four top six finishes in eight major storms, including in New York. The US open last year toy second alongside Johnson in the masters did not much Gusta experience. Any second spin opened with a seventy three understandable full-back incredibly well over the former three rounds to finish second such a core around us ideology can see dust in Chicago. And then, Dan. Stretcher juuling, so the book L'Oreal nurse on knowing and bit further down. I'm sure you've got some big price fancies to perhaps get stuck into H Y. Two more strong each way. He's in two more so much much bigger process. Tony fin out finish fifth in the masters played alongside his hero woods in the phone three. He's fooled figures from the majors at ten five nine Fuji to five he was fifth in the US open last year in New York than second in the Northern Trust in New Jersey. So he likes this part of the world. He's competed at Bethpage once before finish twelfth in the twenty sixteen Barclays. He's got the long game class to handle Bethpage, full selection. Bubba Watson two months champion briefy friend, the green jacket hatchery last month. He was in second place with a couple of hours ago. Then bogeyed the phone sue hall's, but we know he's good enough to win majors. Ee almost won the US and twenty ten years beating in the playoff and his best page Brock phone figures. Eighteen ten thirteen nice solid credentials on. A course that suits. He's won the travelers championship three times across the New York border in Connecticut. So he launched his father while can see Bubba getting in the mix. And then more two biggest prize runners. Jason caught crack and Julian Surrey power packed Americans who will cut me slow downs and SARS cov cracks being threatened in the US to a breakthrough season broke my hind. So when he finished second in the star championship in March of what one shot the fee, they're fifty to one don't see why the PGA can't be the tournament. What the moment. Funny comes you know, long soft page face with strengths and he's only previous star that was choosing courage in choosing coaching. He opened with a seventy four and the twenty sixteen Barclays understand to be slow star than you haven't played before they nine under par for the rest of the tour of seven co crimes. Not in the US PJ last year. I can see call crap goes even closer to the the famous Mona make it through this on. And then the the biggest part of movies is Julian Surrey what a story this would be if Julian Siri put it out, then you'll boon Vaughan lived in New York and the first ten years of his life. So he grew up in New York, then he goes to Europe to kickstarts career reward on the challenge tour, then he wore on the Europeans or on the. On the rare occasions when he's gained access to talk to a world class field. He's not left town place. He finished eighth in the Houston Open last year, if it's twenty eighth and the open knowing teeth in this event USPGA and then he season ended early 'cause he hernia. Hernia abdominal hernia surgery and since his comeback played in any four bins finish twentieth. In the mail. You Bank championship four the Indian Open second in the half intro and knowing teams in Joyner open. So he's come back playing great Gulf. He's already proved himself one of the best players on the European tour always suspects Julian series. Good enough to win stakes are too. And you know, long-sought course, in the state is the provides an excellent opportunity to hundred fifty to one when I was first looking tournament. And I was really sorry about that. And other people have picked up his credentials because he's been backed heavily backed them. But anything three figures off insurance what we're Johnson. Story as wrote wrought bit before eleven forty five am on Thursday because they've Rodney mentioned we already New York Long Island. Steve what about the weather the draw is that going to be a factor because I'm hearing of rain in the area. Yeah. Means that the weather is the key thing about the weather is how cool it's going to be on. This saw the lands. It. We think every American woman must be played in beautiful sunny weather in the Florida ones normally on, but you know, these going to be quite chilly there. And obviously that's another thing to factor in when you analyze and Tiger Woods. You answer drifted in the button and understandably so because you know, he back problems and not behind him. I mean, he it'd be walking very gingerly this week in the in the cold weather. I think the, you know, the chimney Bethpage mornings some stuff at target John's is a hope nod love to see the the grand slam big continue. But yeah, you can you can get very sort of British weather conditions over there. A little bit, breezy and cold, weather, and the old sponsor rain. And a hat with a woolly ha of the top of it. Did you say that? Yeah. Yeah. He just desperate to shoot himself in the elements. Then they said he wouldn't take much for the back to to seize up a little bit or thinking this week in these conditions, and yeah, there's other players that you consider Jason's day the source injury played the individually as well fancy this week. But you know, he how's he gonna handle the cold weather? You know, he's a very Britzka carrots. And so yeah, yeah. Not not your average Americans face are major. We used to USPGA being played in Beijing always conditions. But we switched a may. And we switched to a particular part of the country. Factor in their brought the views of the rice impose very own Steve Palmer there. And now, we will come a new voice to the racing post Gulf post costs Glenn die from a friends stall sports. Of course, the gentleman, but Mike is Glenn welcome. Tell us about yourself. The row star sports. So you try to star of the the oats Kofoed's compiler there. My into everything most firms the baby had love me go, and that's my main role. Yeah. It's li- seven of local causes. I'm sure seventeen wouldn't were very well familiarly 'cause they play flat. Yes. Seventeen gets me. Ran these days. I'm sure you'll probably there had the offer Simpson. Do you specialize US European or you're know roundup? Oh rashly remaining via the guys previous more into the European. We split the to really. Yeah. It's like an interesting it alters really Cape. Ann. I on the on the Asia in Japan says as well, you get the old stall not met Ziama coming on. So it's not given all that that is going as well. Glenn? Let's give this a shot into the pundits jump on the websites thought spooks thought and they find the market and who's heading the betting. In at the moment is Dustin Johnson tend to one if I run in the first ten. Eleven's ROY McElroy twelve along with. So I. All I got six into one. Jim Rome, twenty two one just been rose. Twenty two Jason by Rickie Fowler and twenty eight to one Francesca Mona knowledge, then the show fillet. Over each y v the first seven this week. He's not in the does it fluctuate now, hopefully, nobody standards here eventually very five or six without a little bit. But we'd go with the seven this week for the first major the second major year. Beg your pardon. Get your view. How's the book shape? Install sports renowned for lane. Huge huge bets on on other sports, the casing go take any huge. Even chest at the front of the market cat diet twenty-five we cut to twenty roam the twin as in sixteen. They've been a good spate of business wherever the seven terms is been part of that. But we've seen money for players in a very good. You want to get by? The worst one at the moment is Jim Rome. Jim Rome interest in Jeremy Chapman. But a good Kayce foot. Join run Nixon's that might be where we all right? Let's get everyone's views. Then Joe we've heard from Steve is very much in the Dustin Johnson Cam. What about yourself? Yes. I've already said I do fancy Johnson as well. But I've got a couple more. First one is Jason day who've already mentioned Steve went into detail about his fitness troubles. And yes, it's always in your back of your mind when you back in Jason day, but he seems positive. I mean, this has happened before. And he's we've drawn on the eve of the two them or in the middle of it. But he's ranking on the rotten noises about, you know, his fitness this week, and he just loves playing in the US PGA. You know, he said he was struggling for fitness before the most isn't any finished in its high for fifth as well. When he's in great form just in general his game twenty four for the wells fog. I lost time out and poor fair round. Let down there. But yeah, he's top twenty in his lost six PJ championships in the top ten in four of them. So I think you're getting decent place returns. I'm decent places out here this week. So definitely, you know, Jason days of ones consider in for each way back as well as wind punches. He's played Bethpage a couple of times in the ball. Please have we as we've already mentioned he was tied full there in two thousand sixteen in twenty four in two thousand twelve which is pretty good guy. He's a monster of the he is a most of the tea, and he's one of the best part is out there. I've mentioned Dustin Johnson's liking for pilot greens. Jason very much in the same canton. The probably the top two in the world and Parana, and it's an I w telling has design this week left page black and he's just. Of course, it's been played on the PGA tour and in major championships as well Ridgewood in New Jersey, which is hosted the twin eighteen Northern Trust of formerly the bulk lease that was cool to Nova trust for the first time comes years ago. He finished high twenty they're lost year. Ridgewood? I'm tied second in two thousand fourteen and tied fifth in two thousand ten on tilling house design and the 2016 USPGA one by Jimmy Walker. I was played at Baltics role which is another tuning has track. And Jason Dave finished seconds their shots behind Jimmy Walker. The coolest is also talking about the cost to design a redesigned by REEs Jones at the same as both AS Roma's. I just mentioned days a two-time winner of the farmers insurance as well pylon of greens in California and USA REEs Jones is on track. So Jason day. He's he's books is. Yes, should be a coolest. They love your. He said, they love their hair and. He when he played a Bethpage twenty sixteen of the Seventy-nine players that made the cut the Barclays his driving. Accuracy was the worst in the field. It was seventy seventy nine hundred seventy nine about thirty five percent of fairways made on the round an improvement on that. I mean he finished fourth. It should seem much much place. You know, he ranked ninth in greens in regulation. But yeah, any improvement, and he got really close to his masters. Most is finished the other day. We have a month, and he would have gone even closer to winning. The most is for the first time. How do you double bogeyed the fifteenth on the Saturday, which is affecting giving out free shorts to the field? So yet desperate to time for that mistake. So often Jason day is the minds and be with this week job is a top top close. Gopher Botts is broke my heart. Many a time through withdraws from injuries. Well, the vibes coming from the camp Yang's very positive this week. He is almost the play. Opposite to how he was before Gosto where everyone was talking about Jason days. He's moaning about his back. Again. He's you know, he's had him, quote, a cry baby this. But yet you're gonna get that with him. But. When he is this positive you have to take notice, and hopefully it all comes together for him this week autonomy. The could be sets up any better for Jason get, sir. The vote from Joe what about yourself? Glenn? Hoosier humane pick. This is Jonathan by a very big hundred and twenty five to one guy probably trying the best gophers current moment without a win this as in free time to win a defend eating Canada three top ten's essays, including a third of the players. We saw very close number one. Forget he's lost. Ryan six on the know. Tough coast. Great finish. I lost. The wells all guy. Consistent old says and long eighteenth in driving distance on the two issues of in very good style. See in its draw the ball long and straight this year, thirty fifth greens in regulation. I mean film the fail. Why on the grains, you're gonna get the job done? I think he's a big player, just info. And with the early weather forecast from day one. He's actually the lost group. So the weather is as predicted he's gonna miss it. Apparently. So that could affect him prema- swells of the twenty five hundred very big price each way, Johnny Vegas for me. He's one hundred twenty two one Glenn Theros skew if you've got a big prospect ANSI. Yeah. Oh, yeah. I thought he wants to do. I I love the front of the market of Casca is more, man. They a big fan of books. Get capping long time ever since he came up the challenge to three straight wins. Just misdemeanor at the moment. Isn't a three of the law seven Gonese. Why he's a God. I think he's got everything of reading PA guy. More working very well the moment, but even lost weight mini, vans that you wouldn't know what Johnny share Joe they likes to play the week before a major championship sixty sixty five sixty sixty sixty five that's not bad for guys games. Not I one I think it'd be for a big shot. Again, this way can be all to reframe thing. Okay. Anyone else? Catch the oldest Vegas in and cook anything in between. Right. Yeah. Pick one, Justin. How did one hundred fifty a one nine one probably wouldn't even have heard that the guy last year you wins on home soil in South Africa invention over to Asia. I wanna cut times Lhasa. Even which means cut European. So then he showed up on my radar. We've good f- third or full friends goals to prepare it. And so what was the leaders or get him in the frame and the Qatar mouse is this as in again show sixty six in the phone around to get the job done and achieve spur shoop into victory. Six in driving accuracy on the PGA to say the now he's been over there. Fantastic and itself just consistently playing good golf quite good enough to win a my job done by a good run for your money hundred and fifty one company ranked full so in the world is also testament to its consistency. Yeah. I think he's in for a very good shot as well. The long and straight line Joe who wrote July out sorta just in that Jason dot well as a DJ Jason day this week I've done with one more too big a price. And that's Thomas Peters who finished in the top five in last year's PG. And we know giddy as we've seen how good he can be in front of boisterous crowds in the ride a cop. And he hasn't quite kicked on since two thousand six. He has a bit. Yep. He seems to love the big occasion. And, you know, east he finished in full for the moss in two thousand seventeen and as I mentioned sick for Bellary lost last time in the US PJ. And he's he possesses massive power of the taste one of these guys that can hit it and absolute mile US tour events. He hasn't played many overseas a European man but this season he's played well when he has played on the US toys finish. I if in the NBA the CNBC classic eighteenth for the co-sanctioned, WGC, HSBC champions. And he won the World Cup alongside Thomas de tree. He hasn't played. He he hadn't played gopher a good few weeks before taking up the Byron Nelson lost week. He enjoyed those massive wide fairways because he finished in a tie for twenty third place. Which is a nice little. Sort of pipe-opener ahead of this week. He's also form Rivera Rivera country club, which hosts the Genesis open every year itself, a former USPGA venue. He's finished tied second there. And that's a cool. Swear, Dustin Johnson. Bubba Watson kind of the guys you want to follow this. So yeah, that should sort of tie in well with Bethpage this week. So the big price and with generous place available. Thomas Peters is a big runner at the old for me to in your team anyone oaks. That's it really quite happy with into maybe gets involved in in play. Any stall sponsor a firm renowned for pretty concessions, Glenn any anything happening round this one any money back specials. For splice this week up until the end of the first round. If you Beck apply that MRIs IKA up to twenty five pounds. We give you money back. There's a free bay one player per customer qualifies as a good position. If you find somebody who's aggressive. He could be there all older white, then you get your money back and have another go into week. I did have an who knows the on the website and plenty of specials at one coat while I was what will the winning bay? It's been Merrick debate in the office waiting at one as well. We say some money there for the the higher end of that one. That was I seven or I am the noise ten or eleven and all lower nasty where we say the money we've got the five is three or four or five or six debate about that. She out will the black coastline this year. We'll find out. Interesting discussion in the office earlier on joy, I think we con to the general consensus was seven or right on offense to be little bit closer to level par. What about yourself? Yeah. I was kind of in the somewhere between sort of five to eight camp. Really? You know, it's it's probably not going to be as tough as it has been the US open. Spot is still Bethpage Black is going to play long this week. So we might not see to a free under win. But maybe a little bit higher than that. So give us a show. They know on that that school is an interesting one that one glimp-. Groups at so some join five hundred thirty Mona's five or minus sake and mine Israel month full of to one nine seven months. I five two minus one minus two six the money you fancy ever Wiedeman is ten month nine on mine. Ten seven one never Paul press one. If I really up and sixteen to one any other ego. Oh. Roll school coats this week any other specials. Coming in the UAE to one winner on a chapter eleven to one and any plan to shoot four rounds on the Paul which might be challenges. Wait, we got price twelve to one again, another interest on there and just probably one out there, no specialist sizable where industry based even mummy. They'll be wholly on this way. But somebody's power phrase of anyone you don't want. Twelve to one you can have on under a level par four rounds. Not particularly. I mean, it's going to be big all, isn't it? You need four hundred sixty nine runs. It hasn't been easy. Is it? I mean, we're looking at. I'm just looking at some of the Paul threes. The thirds two-thirty the the is to ten the seventeenth to seven even money. A Colin what there is a shorter one. Is there was a short one wants to play. Yeah. Industry exists. Which one stole my head that played one of these hoes when the open was held thing. It was a sixteen seventeen the hardest.

We look back on what happened last weekend and look ahead to store them. It's like steve marshall card with a win or two Steve always nodding stars. And the first thing we really needs to stress the shadows different sweet. Tell us all about it. Yeah we tee off on wednesday morning with the british masters. So that's why we are with the lock today and you need to get bets on by close of business choose. They not really tail seven. I am on wednesday night. So if you want to If you wanna get involved in cross doubles at the best prices and all the best each way ortiz definitely best to To play before the first body. Start talking about Each way as well as really good from bedford who sponsor the master's this way they're going ten places will come to that when we get this week but i will say let's review lost weight. And what a great return to form for borey macaroni. And his favorites. Hormann he He's left a pretty. Sketchy stopped the behind in spectacular fashion. Really nice same way. More than he's one of the good guys. Isn't it absolutely yeah. A lot of people allowed him to go off at twenty two one. We were discussing last week. That say you know. Some people would have been shocked to see twenty one micro at quail hollow argues. Favorite states are track So i think he would have been popular last week despite the the terrible for in the lead up And yeah seemed like novice spectators. Come back bit moving atmosphere. They seems to have gone juices flowing. He admitted that post lockdown plan in front of no fans. He found it really difficult. And yeah i think maybe the buzz inspired him lost weight and oversee the coach switches. Well pete cowan wonders immediately They've abandoned the drool with driver a couch with the drive now to get some extra control. He's going to sort of dustin johnson. What may dustin. Johnson a major champion. So yeah yeah. Things are looking for macaroni and yeah. We're just gutted justin. Thomas didn't win the mosques all twenty thousand one that we started the getting break salted about just because roy macro is peaking the us pga now. the tournament. They are the major the think he'd have a best chance on start the year two years. Pj champion and He lost on. Uspga's played at kiro island. Rory mcilroy won by eight shots in dade. How how important was it. You think that the advice he got from his bag man on eighteen fluffy's drive than you stuck it in. That's beautiful isn't it gorgeous that little stream just manned as down the saints and the critised things in bannu i. He found himself in a horrible position. On the bank of that stream didn't he was rehearsing all sorts of weird and wonderful shots. And then he's catty. Just just tighten the drop and That's pretty important. Wasn't a whole lot harry diamonds career really because january. Normally harry just doesn't say much show just carries the bag a takes the takes the paychecks but in that regard go heavily involved in the. It was a tough decision. That i don't think many people would would have taken the job You know a lot of players would've would've just hacked into could four yards of run onto the heart affair with that but They knew they were going to get flatter there. I mean yeah the third short which was superior to the joint when a brilliant search short for macaroni on that position. Federal gone wrong Questions may have been in you double bogeys but yeah please for harry dawn because he has stick from if not being a professional catty running mate and he's on the back. Yeah yeah works out wonderfully folder and the yeah. Yeah shoot profile for the uspga now especially with dustin johnsons injury issues. An appeal the plays out full and big johnny wrong. Mr cut the navy's piece reno plant bryson though. He missed the cut any what. Today that was wasn't a flew home on friday thinking. You've missed the car. Landed of wherever he lives and then was told to get back in the plane and get back. Remain calm incredible drama. And then he couldn't go straight back because the pilots refused to do so. They said they needed that rests. They were legally allowed to go straight but So then he had to stay overnight in in dallas where he lives and Go back to end the following morning so to become a scientist triangulation analyst stuff and he and read the lead boost a chance of making the car on each. Why's super intelligent. He might sound well. She's fraud afternoon. Conditions turn to and brutal in the uae sort of went out from ninety places sixty sixty fifth or whatever but some Yeah yeah we had victoria in that in that fraud off new in. So don't get me started on that but some if it was the right bet last week. I don't regret that till we played. He play really. Well finish the two shots. Two shots off the lead in the emba. Yeah he was out in the in the toughest of the conditions. No regrets on. Victor homeland stopped. You didn't get. I thought i told miserable. I do have regrets alatorre. i think. Perhaps the getting engaged in the lead up to the tournament wasn't audience a bit. She wrote too much romance in the alatorre a bit too much. How's your father. I suspect in the in the leader wasn't the rated with the just all the sudden for the first time in in about a year. E e e e e didn't pay tourist. So yeah i i question whether rump pompey was employer. You have to fight all sorts in a catch your eye in a negative positive way. I think jon rahm as you mentioned just seems a little bit angry. Like eve's glaring at spectators and i it's not like followed is calmed him. A followed may have gone the other way. Maybe the lack of sleep schedule. I don't know but some yeah. I didn't like the way he conducts himself last week. Keith mitchell hugely impressive will come on. So come onto him. Nights in the it bar nelson And a disgust the canary orleans championship. You prepared to discuss that. I prepared on your sign. You're going to hate me for this data on life before before it started. I mean he was. He was standing claim. I mean we suggest in the higo. Thomas double mark more coming. I'm so pleased. That thomas flop last week because you know he go clearly the man to be. But i mean all could up another favourite after the unsworn rolston debacle could always just a six to four fourteen to one mostly favorites online. Yeah i know. I know i just. I just felt the vouchers would be of put up another favorite. Your lights just went for the big prices but it was just a ridiculous decision because he go sixty eight under par for that canary. All in swing I think missing them food. Wanting gran canaria was the big big one year. If you're on it for forty one in grand canary be much more inclined. Sustainable the hey go train when you throughout the can have honest with each relentless. Incredible isn't it. He's absolutely one off the track. Their hopes ceo is follow up low around cliche and it was so hard for every flipping round was in the low sixties. Good three weeks as names off a million euros. He won two tournaments. I mean blimey loss to be garret higa. Wouldn't you would go into the majors now. I mean you know. The only pulse was another chapter for my book and the garrett destroyed me was the book. talk to your suggest. Yeah he hasn't destroyed you as he looked at. It took me all lanes are never gonna see the canary islands again. I'll never return to the canary islands. I think a booted and aircraft the canary physically sick. When i read the brochure congo about their after that that that's that's the worst swing of my career. Canary swing remedy. Yeah absolutely typically swing was terrible but some of doing law and under now. i'm at. She still quite confident incredibly I don't believe that he messed up. The canary islands swing is going to be on my gravestone. I'm confident knocking get sore. Should house they've come you too hard and you like you. You mustn't be so cruelly. Tough on yourself. My these things happen. It's hard to predict weapons in gopher. I mean we should just discuss him. Because he's twenty one He seems to be absolutely nerveless. How how big can he becoming game of golf. Well we're seeing on the biggest stage. I mean you say is absolutely this amini supplant in front of no spectacular ridiculous ridiculously easy tracks. I mean you know. I could them twenty seven on the paul around. This actually did say into that. He was nervous from the first as i was less. He's great. he's great all the tools and he really young and he got the us pj next. Make the cut in the us pj Be that'd be a feather in the cap Now i'm a big carrot here. Happy from day one. All of winds now have come. Coastal tracks over the atlantic ocean could have the atlantic ocean so we see him win a different different types of courses and oceans oceans in any in category. Go for humans who surname means. A nickname. isn't it. I mean what would nicknamed if you surnamed higo. That's a nickname isn't it. If you got higgins you might recall. But they're the hippopotamus hege pulses stink at east crushed me like a hippopotamus because we did have a bit. Who didn't we going on sunday morning. With your hundred and seventy five to one long. Short robin skeoch agreed and we actually go of nickname for him home in might rubbing. The beasts scott's aggrieved and he's illegal. The i didn't go quite tied second. He was tied second for hand for the house in your hopes for hall and then a horrible whole show. You're watching the actually had a horrible Took him to clear. Second place So yeah and then higgins with bananas from the roads skills. Ruben seal z. Is i spent Finished twelfth which is not good to man nor beast. Anything else in the canaries drawer. Line on put it in a bidding back in chuck on skits well nikolai hoegaarden nikolai hoegaarden and brought the little extra salt into the wounds. Because he was under twenty for ten reef open place rubbish over the weekend. The same coast following toys fourth gets the place money for his follow. Some that was a nickel. hogarth follows. A think he's great thing. I'm in love with the ho- god's chapter for the rush we move along. I think we. I think we should draw on the canary islands. Never go to the canary islands. Begun i don't worry about how to absolutely gorgeous Right and first tournament look at this week. It's the back. Fred british masters for some reason. I'm not quite sure. Tastes off on wednesday morning so wednesday through to saturday in sutton coldfield. Oversea the legendary bell legendary. The belfries famous is now. Shes let us play. This not makes it legendary. didn't chime millions gulf no no i've never been invoiced. I'm not a big enough cheese for that. From on play there another occasion upright would fit the freighters of all people. Did you really busy. It was a nice fellow very nice. Study ucf mazing bottles in the you know the swing swing it. Both edible is actually. Do you know rights those kind of iconic holes. There's a law fairly muendane. Breadbox of par fours isn't areas is not like eighteen hours of magic. It's kind of five hundred magic. But anyway it's time roy to cover as a four-time ryder cup. From united states is from upset. She ever look at the betting A better quality of field say this week. We've been looking at dan canaries. A robert mcintyre twelve to favorite roughly eighteen. Kamer twinkie to one. I've got wise in breeze. Burger twenty two host filled in. Hogar that's rasma saga twenty one willett. Who is the. He's the tournament hugs. So what does that entail list. Wait steve really not a lot. When there's no spectators is a. I mean just promoting and getting the right players in in front of cameras. I guess Don't think he'd be a natural that donnie it but we shall see underneath the most see. We see then is helpful to your chances. If thinking back danny when he gets hopefully jones remember lee westwood was hosting previously and It the favorite well fancied favor in the eaten. Enjoy the rosa we or then whether is not going to be great is it. It's a it's pretty doll and windy and wet will draw bars if he mashed a gleaning from the weather forecast. Snow remote the actor. No law wins law winchester. Just a bit light rain. I think scoring conditions are quite good. Actually yarmuk. yeah yeah yeah. I'm i'm fairly the robinson's gonna play a little bit easier. It normally does radio. How many selections if you got a got four okay right then. Who's your main selection gun. Stay number one sessions. Razzmatazz hogar last year's uk championship by far the best cost for them to go on. I mean there's been loads of european sour- vents at the belfry but in the last thirteen years and that was the the one off uk championship which they bought in to boast to the scheduled us. J. hogar will not venny improved his score in every round opened with the seventy three closer with sixty five He's only twenty in march. And i think he's gonna get his third european hotel on sunday and this is florida g. Both the hogar bras brilliant from a very young age. He opened a twenty four to one. We racing post dot com. Read is up a still. I think there's a case hoegaarden favourite this way. I think he should probably be the favourite given his around quality and scope for further improvement. We talked about you. Know we should learn lessons from garrick. That was a progressive. Young player. hadn't showed how good he was a think hogan's still got plenty more to come His last two tournaments when the pga tour in zurich classic as event alongside volunteer in the foul spot championship. Mister cowboy a short in both of them. But they were decent efforts. In cost. Debuts taylor a great partner Hogar carried him with china. Very very old lady gaga very strange combination. Donna how they came together but what do know is hogar carried him on day. One twelve of the twelve of the eighteen holes hogar school counted and then the following week in the house bar a second round sixty nine solid effort unlucky not massive downgrade from the foul spot of the bet. Fred on the form. It's miss companies cub. He's going from great fields to so two very average one. The last time we played on the european always the australian open brilliant weekend finished twelfth. so yeah. I think rosina's hogar is the new modern king of the belfry excellent. Thank you steve. And who is your seconds left. If it's not if he's not how. God who will it be. It will be sam. Whole showed another class young to making the downgrade from the pga tour to the european saw a missed the cut off shot in the vow spa on the european saw. He knows he's a big fish in a small pond is a two-time champion. Confidence breakthrough came in the hero open last summer at the forest of arden force of on twenty minutes down the road from the belfry similarities. In a back problem start the year. It didn't plan till the kenya open But he's emphatically proved fitness and form eighth in kenya open third in the savannah. Classic slow stein freezing temperatures in austria nor audio for florida bass player with back problems. Got child off zoomed up at the is the temperatures went up finished fifty and then fourth in the grand canaria lopez on open so. Yeah all really all this event. Just see the as hogan vs horsfield contest. Okay it will be like Lawn gt1 who is i which i she's gonna provide o'hare Bloody lutely yeah. Let's hope it's not such a disappointing ending. A lot of people were disappointed with that ending juicy when they aren't mind at shot those logical out the way that you know they. They kind of tied up loose ends. It wasn't perfect. But i think people expect too much from endings upped mon mon monmouth will sit down dramas hundred and then it gets. It does seem almost ever been satisfied with an ending or mostly. Of course you know you never get. The kind of armageddon didn't have another series to think. Oh online but some anyway sure you got two more sections to begin with h no no no to more much. Bigger prices richard mansell no relation to najah amounts of the formula one leisure no relation to mickey mantle. The the dots journey journeyman darts player. Richard manso is making a name for himself now. He was runner up in the europe. The rim bank open. That was the second post lockdown venue. Don't remember that me very low key. Resumption the european so we had austrian. Open your bank open. Mansell finished second in that. Then he finished second in it at challenge of a few months later he's already won on the euro pro tour. One thousand nine hundred and in his last four starts when the european so it'd been really solid twenty eighth in austria and then he got progressively better in. The canaries made it into the final three on sunday. dropped to twelfth place on sunday. Thinking takes lots of positives from from las. We hit the ball really well. And he lives close to the belfries. He's a he's kind of commodities based in cannock which is kinda. Yeah yeah you know you walk from. Thanks canucks most. Famous sunny stan. Collymore although you go the go so Yeah that's kind of close by the belfry sutin ball-strikers tracked in the way manson's been hitting it lost few weeks. I think he can go well and then just have to one but my connect one hundred ten to one. That's not bad that they go there. You go and the phone and a an even bigger process oil. Kernan another one. Who jetted over from the canaries full of beans closed with a sixty one on sunday as amazing round at even not a bogey in their sixty one astonishingly good school Finished fourth so is clearly fan. Game he also spark with in gran canaria. Shaw third round sixty four and grand canyon his white at twenty place and he's already proven he can handle the belfry at a euro pro tour event there in two thousand fourteen kern finish fifth. A great amitai twice won the irish. Pj championship at the age of thirty three may be peaking pro certainly worth johnson. A process took him as the war. Kakapo what's the little bit of it before Before the mine action started on sunday and eluded clocks ended up winning it. jay did not watch. I know i was just devote myself to the to the professional tools. Go go go your tom. Well these days absolutely is precious. What why don't you see. Robert mcintyre the favorite. I mcintosh's overrated. I don't like being critical of him. Because he's he's a popular seem to know as chap everyone seems largest thing he's getting so many some column inches in so much coverage and hysteria of he doesn't measure up to these achievement. Only oldies one is is a joke. Events site for showdown with schools re south reach round. He's is yet to win. A seventy two hole stroke play event are just think a think. The hysteria is based on scottish goldfine. Lund's the home golf. And they're desperate. The scotsman a desperate for a great scottish goal for them and albertson's montgomery and all the hope is pinned on robert mcintyre. I think he's i think he's i think he's over. Eight i think is good plan. I think he can win. But i think he's gone on for too. Shore prices fair enough. All dusted for british mobsters. Thinks monstrous. spicer. I've got to say there are. There's a huge variance in each white terms. One but mike going five places and one place you do shop around okay. Let's hang over to america. The itin t byron nelson a traditional event Was the cause. Where craig ranch in mckinney. She's just north of no. No no no i. On the first on the he used to be four seasons. Yeah we've we've we're here for the first time a long track. Seven thousand four hundred sixty eight yards. Par seventy two. We do have a little bit of course form from the two nights nationwide tour championship and the two thousand twelve web dot com tour championship is a few plays a plan in this played in that It looks a big boost to me as well as the was the yardage you got plenty of space between the fairways and the trees full. Fahd's one driveable par for thunderstorms you any second now. Let's see if we can hear the thunder storm from dallas. There is so softening. The track up nicely. Okay let's have a look at the market russia's bio and big gianni romme to enjoy private spaeth nine to one burger. Fourteen matt ziama twinsies fitzpatrick scheffler twenties as well could twenty two saga really good field. It's very hot field. Think we got maija coming up and this is a two weeks hence next week next week. We've got the us pga championship next week. Okay a right and said he had really good field. This is looking forward to this event. I t show is hits at one o'clock on thursday circulation pets by then. And how many have you got steve. Three free a fair enough Who's gonna be the headliner. The headliner is brought to shambo. Who though limi- unusual for may unusual familiar. Just think deal for him. He was a double figure. Prosper with dustin johnson withdrew. We must mention that. Dustin johnson is withdrawing. He's been making a habit of these eleventh hour withdraw rules this one this one. It seems it's not just because he doesn't fancier this one is because of a knee injury developed say. He's suffering a little bit a knee pain so Dustin johnson is out to shambo short and slowly. But i still think nine to one is is a fair price. This course right up his street in an in an interview quail hollow. After his is round on sunday set much. She likes craig ranch so he's got a significant. Edgier is a cool suits and he knows it much better than most of the field shambaugh lives in dallas. That's where he was dashing back to and going back and forth last week So he can get lots of wood on the rangers. Go a few issues with the draw. We can so out that early in the week on the range. Enjoy the home comfort. And then make marianna on his track closed with back-to-back sixty eight quail hollow. Hadn't played since the marceau's a bit rusty early on so it missed the cup. Will that drama will only on his neck jet An eight-under-par weekend quail hollow is really impressive. On under those circumstances every department of his gaming is short game was fantastic. Every department of these games in order apart from each every just needs to straighten out his driver little bit. He's got chris coma with him on the range in texas there so Yeah i think if shambo can just get case draws on the my little bit more. He's the man to beat this week. The does he ever kind of ryan back a bit with the driving is he still has a little bit to pump up in desperate for distance when the big dog comes east unloads. They some you know he can. He has taken on off the tee when necessary. Three does have that ability to just going to be. One of the ball disordered. I mean far enough bullets lately. So anita fos bullets and the next best is scottie. Scheffler another dallas-based pros got to dallas boys going from the east east lift in dallas fort. She's whole life one of the best maidens on the pj tore if not the best the pj chill loves planning his home state finished runner up in the wgc doubt to sheet matchplay in texas last month so end of march. He's contended numerous times on. Pj now think he's ready. I mean he's be missed a few putts when he's going contingent but he learned from bill. Sam berns yo. Sam berns which will lose. We will lose faith. And sam berns the more time you're out there the more experience you get the more. You already made the breakthrough. He's a two time winner in the ferry. Torsos can only get the job done. Low lonzo ball shocking class massive runner craig ranch thing to cool shoots and well and finally and the foreign selection is keith. Mitchell broke my hoffy one last week. is both striking in the last few weeks. As being magnificent he started playing well in the texas open just over a month ago and it was a standout performer. In zurich classic pairs event remember we. We tipped him for the vows. Among we discuss he finished fullfil. Long-sought brand snack about static is happily admitted since they. If if thousand individual event mitchell toowoomba ten shots It looked like the mitchell. Bubble burst in the vow spa falling around eighty two which was often for last week. We subsequently discover the potter at some out. Being benach tab alignment you see. That story now is being damaged. He took fool she to patch in the phone around the the vow spa then his team sport the problem corrected the potter and he it solidly last week in the phone group. Rory mcilroy didn't disgrace himself Finished the so mitchell's got some good form in texas third. In this event in two thousand eighteen six in the two thousand eighteen houston open the ways our surprise. You've such a big price. I mean it's eighty to one out there about mitchell might ask the monkey going to be slow to latch onto rising talented. Happen sometimes doesn't it. I mean he's not particularly glamorous. Busy well i think. He's eighty two the foul spa. Made if you didn't know about the missile long putter than you preps this think. He's he's going again. That wouldn't you okay. We'll give them that. We're in dallas with beds about j. john wrong with mike. If he's 'cause. I mean. I must admit cursory. Look at the mall cal. Lionel got gotta near that with a barge. No no no. I think he's a favorite y- you struggle to get excited about it. It's fullness really consistent way you see is both striking was really consistent up to last week and then as i say just techy last week Say don't find your mom spaeth home game for speed plenty of room to maneuver of the t- Not played much as not played much. maybe a tad rusty. Yeah i think If that thunderstorm arrives preferred Do much prefer brushes shambo. I mean if you if you're looking for dangers can see touch info for the dangers. There coming three go. We live what we can look at a tourist if he can if he can wake up from his slumber last week. Flop was a huge young characteristic Eat another manage lived in texas this whole life. He would know this swell see-wu kim dallas-based warm i of the style the or could see kim plan while a mop pre leash schmidt last name the list leash sherman one of the few in this field with some competitive costs for me finished seventh in the Two thousand and eight national championship that we mentioned just one the past them with cameron smith so all could be tempted by the motley shman but some heat econ. I have a mole kenya. Nice sunny con- you'd be having hundred and fifty expecting told him if he did. Don't don't shoe is tells me to lean again for stay on. Why don't you just buy all this. She reached garrett round. the father. payoff. Well i suppose it's while my accounting a winner but yeah night me okay. The next so reach the selections this week in the fred british. You're going for like rasmus. Hogar sam horsfield richard mansel and nile kuni and in the pebble pebble. Eighteen hundred bar nelson riddle. Bryson disembowel. scottie scheffler. And keith mitchell. Excellent jolly good. If you on having walnut on the go this week what would it be on. The should have the rams miss hogar brushing the shambo each white double having not a will we have in that. May maybe you should have that with the firms that are often all these wacky places. Because yeah you should tell them. This bet. Fred sponsor the tournament keen to january. Interest in in their event is superb super place. That will absolutely jelly good. Okay your last week. A federal yeah. Yeah yeah. I'm in good faith.

And I'm talking about all dynasties here. But in particular, Golden State and the patriots because they're the most recent when you're a dynasty, it gives you equity, you can take bigger risks because you're the man you're the team, you can coach with honesty and integrity and courage. You can go for it on fourth down in New England. You can trade a Pro Bowl player, if you think he's overpaid winning. It's like money over time an interest, it just compounds in compounds and gives you a different culture in a different belief in confidence, Golden State in this analytic. Sue NAMI, gotta shoot three's the mid range jumper is bad threes. Threes, only threes. Did you notice how they won last night? Did you see the shot chart trailing in the game? They relied on to Portland leading in the game leading just get buckets took a lot of bad threes. Portland. Had it. Chose to lose it. Golden State played with confidence situationally make a couple big defensive plays Iggy. Get the basket over the three if it's available it has been by the way, a bad bad postseason for the analytic nerds. A lot of mid range jumper teams are doing well, fourth quarter, Golden State, all, but one shot was made from the paint Portland leading took a fourteen threes yet, Golden State trailing took only six, and if you've noticed this year, they have moved in key situations, Golden State off the three occasionally only eight in the NBA in the number of three shot that is with Steph curry, the best shooter in the world. That is with Kevin Durant, the best player in the world. That is with Klay Thompson. The next best shooter in the world. And they were seventeenth actually in the Maury ball stat, Daryl Morey rockets, GM friend of the show love him. Houston's number one threes. Threes, got her shoot three's. We're chasing. We're obsessed threes. Three the best shooting team in the league moved a seventeenth because the best shooting team in the league has the confidence to just go get buckets to not play to the crowd, and the critics, and the analytic mavens last night's game, Portland, had it and shot a bunch of bad threes, Golden State trailed, and relied heavily down the stretch onto when you're chasing when you're obsessed when you're concerned and consumed about the optics and Golden State's not New England's not they trade good players. Well, they're overvalued. They move the ball fourth out in their own territory. We just like our chances here. But what if you who care? There's it's like interest. What did I in Stein say the most powerful force in the world is compounding interest? It's the same thing with sports. The more you win the more courage. The more honesty. The more integrity, you can coach with don't kid yourself. There are coaches up there. There are GM's out there. Their owners out there. There are players out there petrified of what people might say about them if they lose believe me. I got attacked by two yesterday. There was a moment in the game. That was interesting. Golden State led one twelve one eleven had the ball steps and three pointer. Ends it and they didn't take they came down and got the best shot from Draymond green one. Fourteen one eleven now three ball and the best three ball shooter in the world habit would have ended the game but they still went and took the best shot. And by the way, what's remarkable is Golden State shot. Sixty percent on threes in the third quarter they could have easily convinced themselves just keep talking just keep shooting. No, they're like, no. Now, let's take the. Best shots available dynasties aren't obsessed, they're not consumed. They're not chasing, New England and Golden State are both brilliant situationally, because they're not playing to anybody other than the truth integrity of the shot integrity of the play. They're not worried about the critics last night was a clinic in how dynasties win games there outplayed in how dynasties win a game. They had no business winning. I mean you saw it in the Super Bowl. New England Rams tr- tied early. Did you ever think the Rams are going to be better late than New England? No. And last night. I'm watching that game. And I'm thanking God Golden State's just taken smart shots inside when the rims available go get it. Don't be worried about planned to the analytic sue, NAMI. Don't be worried about if you lose. What will they say, no pressure, not tight, total confidence? That's what dynasties looked like late in games. And he's dynasties don't kid yourself. Michael jordan. They didn't sweep teams in the finals. They didn't sweep teams in the Eastern Conference finals. Michael Jordan's bulls went to a lot of game sexes, go, ask Utah. Go as Phoenix. Go as Seattle. They went to a lot of game sexes. They want a lot of close games in those playoffs, just like Golden State won last night. Just a piece of art. Is that what that was three minutes four minutes in the game? That was that was art basketball good. Shot. Smart shots hit them make a play defensively. Situationally coaching great, great, great, great, great. Let's shift to this. This was not great almost ruined my night. So yesterday, a story came out. The story came out, basically that Cleveland their coach, Freddie kitchens was clearly not happy but said Odal Beckham has left town. We want to get his mind right before he's at practice. He came for one OTA practice and left. Now this bothers me for a lot of reasons number one Baker Mayfield in a second. Year old L doesn't know the players the coach playbook. The formations the know anything receiver quarterback especially receiver young quarterback. Get this thing tight. Come on. Let's go. I wouldn't care if it was a tight end running back a corner a safety star receiver second year quarterback. Let's get the timing down. I mean Tom Brady spent his off seasons with element. And they already have timing. So I said, we got more drama. We have a coach having to talk about. Oh, BJ. I said. Is it me or is it will be Jay gone from circus? Catch tonight, just more circus. So I put up his ten most memorable moments in his career. That is ten best plays. I didn't call it that, that is ten greatest catches. His ten most memorable moments in his career because my point was once you start looking at them the catch the boat fight with net meltdown in tunnel. Paris hotel room fight with Norman p. And in the end zone. My point was, once you start looking at his ten biggest moments is a lot of non-football nonsense. There's the catch and this is the bunch of pairs hotel room fighting with a net peon in the end zone. I'm like we've gone from circus catch to circus act. I didn't say this was the ten best plays at my point was I thought a very fair one, which it was very fair in OB Jay's a public figure, you got to deal with some criticism. Well, OB J went apoplectic. He attacked me viciously on Twitter. I'm not going to go through all these. I'll put about for our f s one listener just was, like hours of just four separate tweets and reactions, by the way, Baker Mayfield came after me didn't love that because I thought we were just getting tight and so Bakker attack me and all Dell. Beckham attack me. And of course, this proves one thing. As right. We're not as it's already dysfunctional. Let's let's retrace. The steps here with me and VJ. I always supported Odell Beckham junior in New York. I said, listen, he's young. He's dynamic Elisa shot fighter. He needs to move. This is not working. And I and I said, I said, I don't like all of his nonsense, but this kid's great. This kid's an all time our allies a shot fighter. He's doing some nice things you gotta you got to put this kid with a legit top ten quarterback. And then I also sit on the air before he left New York. I said, I think he's gonna get traded despite with giant said, and I said, you know, this kid was not dysfunctional at LSU, and he was not dysfunctional as first year in New York. He's gotten kind of chaotic as the giants have become chaotic, and I said, on the air, I said, let's be honest about this. Maybe he's just a young kid that doesn't work well in chaos. I can I personally, I don't either. I'm child of divorce. I like less conflict steady management, quiet in the house, and he reached out to me, and he said, you kinda nailed it on that. And it was a really neat thirty minute conversation, I was up in Utah, hanging out skin, and we really connected, I said, hey, he told me some things I still won't relay to you about where he wanted to play what? Then he signs with Cleveland. I sent him a congrats kick. Butt because I knew it wasn't exactly where he wanted to go. But it was a good start Baker mayfield's very accurate as thrower OB j runs the best slant pattern in the league. I'm like good. He'll you'll get stats. At least he's playing with a young quarterback moving into his prime. It's a good feeling for him. And then yesterday, the story about he's been in Cleveland, three days of the sixty five he came for one left coach said, I'd like him to be here. I've never said that, but he's gotta get his mind. Right. And it's been sixty five days since the trade, and he doesn't have his mind, right? And then the reaction, and it sort of proven my point, which is are you a circus catch, or you just a circus because now you got the quarterback now you've got the players around you. Because Cleveland got players. Now are they a great team? I don't know. But they got players. They got players everywhere. They got two good running backs and it midseason the third their offense of line was top three in the league according to pro football focus. They got now owed. L Jarvis Landry. Best young tight end in football good pass. Rusher, Denzel, wards elite corner, all sorts of players. But my concern was this tweets, Instagram, net circus thin skin. Overreacting. I do not regret in any way. My ten most memorable moments because my point was what is OJ now is he the circus catch, or is it just now a circus? He can't be in Cleveland three days of sixty five. Gotta get there. You got a great young second. Year quarterback. You got you got a new coach. You got new playbook. You've got new teammates. You've got new players. You've got new offense. You've got new get there. You got be in town. You gotta get your mind, right? I don't wanna hear about sixty five sixty five days, sixty days. That's enough time to get your mind, right? And by the way, Tom Brady he's vacationing with Julian Edelman. He's working on that stuff nine years into the relationship, you gotta get this thing.

I have not heard from OB Jane Baker Mayfield. Yet still waiting for an apology. I have come to terms with I will accept the apology at any time it is given hopefully over the weekend, I can sleep better. So Seth curry brother of Steph curry feels. The warriors are quote harder to guard without Kevin Durant, quote, I think they're harder to guard. They move around faster when he's not out there. They're definitely not a better team. The word better is interesting because that's what everybody's freaking out about. Whoa. Katie's. God. They're not better wall. Lebron's better than MJ. Whoa, whoa. Whoa. Lebron is better than MJ. At a lot of things, you'd better passer. He's been a rebound or the bigger stronger athlete. He shot a three ball better is a lot of things. Lebron is better than MJ sakes for six while better what we were freaking out with better. We'll Steph is better without Katie in the floor, statistically dream on is better without Steph on the floor. Carson Wentz is better than Nick foles. But here's what happens when Nick foles is not as big not as strong, not as Atlantic. But alshon, Jeffery has better with Nick foles. The offense is more balanced. It's a little less ad-libbed. They follow the coaching but Carson Wentz is better than Nick foles. But there are things Nick foles does better than Carson Wentz. Good enough to win the Super Bowl K. One thing is clear watching this Golden State's not falling off a cliff. Sorry Charles Barkley when Katie Lee. Leaves, they may not win titles, but they've got a great coach. Great GM, a great owner, a great culture. Great system. A great new arena. The best backcourt ever the greatest shooter ever, the best ball handler, on the league Steph curry goodbye. The best leader in the league, the energizer buddy, and Draymond green. The best Robin to Batman in the league in, in Klay. Thompson may not be better, but it's not falling off a cliff. They're going to be fine. Kate, Katie, like this, Katie is the, he's the five star, chef the zagging, chef the James beard, award winning chef. And when he's in the kitchen, Gordon Ramsay. He dominates the kitchen. He dominates the kitchen the meals. Oh, spectacular. The critics love it. It's unbelievable. And then he leaves. And by the way, the meal still really, really good. Is it better? Let's get away from the word better. The kitchens, more fun. Everybody's part of it. It's a collective they're happier. It moves better. Everybody feels a little less rigid and is the meal better probably not. But it still really, really good. And there are things that work better when Gordon Ramsay leaves the kitchen. Although you won't get the five stars zagged rented rated perfect plate. But the kitchen still good the meals, still good. The kitchens, more fun lively in communal as okay? That's the reality was superstars. They hog up all the oxygen in the room. Just why shack yells at Charles Barkley on TNT because when Charles is on a set, he steals all the oxygen because he's a superstar on television and K D steal some of the oxygen, but the meals not better. We'll go back to that word. Everybody's freaking out about, but it's different and it's darn good without him. But over the course of a year, you want Gordon Hayward in the kitchen, he's going to make a series of decisions on the menu night tonight decisions that will keep you five star and you'll probably slipped a four star four and a half star without it. But you can still go there have a great meal on on nights. You walk into that kitchen. You're like man. It's fun and lively in here, it just everybody's having a good time in here, not as tense because once you have K D it gets a little chance because now you gotta win. Because when you got the five star, chef you gotta have great meals. Can't have a bad meal, a bad set a bad night, a bad menu. And when you got K D you have to win the championship, you have to now Golden State. Surprised how well they're playing it. Loosens up the room a little bit. But we're freaking out about better. Lebron is better than Michael Jordan. In a lot of things there are things Nick foles did better than Carson Wentz. Ask alshon Jeffery. And yes, the warriors Steph and dre Monir better, the passing better, the cuttings better, the fluidity is better can deny any of that Nick. Right. Was talking about that on first things. First this morning, and he doesn't even like Golden State, even if the words aren't better without him. Stephan Draymond or win katie's not there. Both of those guys have to play at such a high level. Draymond with so much energy and step was so much potency that those guys they step up their game enough that it at least almost accounts for not having Katie out there. Right. For the record. I think we're all thinking the same thing talking about this. Katie's out outta there. I still don't think he's out of there necessarily. Now, I think he will leave. I had a current NBA player telling me he's one hundred percent gone. I've had a former all star player telling me he's one hundred percent gone. I wouldn't do it. I wouldn't leave. I would stay off Twitter. I wouldn't listen to Instagram. I don't care what anybody says, I would open up the new arena after you guys when you're third, then, you'll win a fourth potentially I would not goes ions not going to New York. We don't necessarily know for sure that Anthony Davis will go because the Knicks have enough pieces. But, but I, I would imagine, katie's watching shows like these and listening and reading and tweeting and burner account or not some of this has landing not great with K D. And I'm just here to tell you, Katie the menu will always be better with you in the kitchen, but it's not going to be lousy without you. And you do. Create an intensity an expectation because of your greatness that's palpable in the room. And when you're gone is a little loose is a little fun over time. I don't want to much fun to loose, but in short bursts, it's, it's good be sure to catch live editions of the heard weekdays at noon eastern, nine AM Pacific. Welcome, welcome.

So I'm going to do something I've never done before. I'm going to foreign territory and I'm not sure how this will be received. But I'm okay with the pushback. I mean, I got Dell Beckham junior screaming at me and Baker Mayfield saying, mean, terrible things I won't sleep well, but I can survive, right? I'm drinking water and trying to do everything else right here. I do something that I've never done before my first ever hot Gulf take. Brooks kept Kaz leading the PGA championship and shot a course record yesterday, and he bores me to tears, and I could not care less. That's my hot Gulf take. He's the coli Leonard of golf great and boring. He's got no personality. I get. No mood swings. I get. No fist pump. He's a weight room junkie. Ooh fascinating go back to golds after you hit another birdie. He was asked a couple of weeks ago. What you think about on the course he said, I don't think much. Oh, great fascinating. Got Hemingway out there? The guys. Great nuts. I ate a my entire life for cereal every morning. My mom made me eat raisin bran, but mostly grape nuts. Forty years later. I don't remember one bowl of grape nuts. I remember lucky charms. I remember honeycomb. I remember count chocula. I remember kicks. I remember tricks. I remember apple jacks. I don't remember grape nuts. He's a great golfer. Yep. One three seven majors. But you're you all you golf addicts who pull your pants up to your neck? When you get post fifth the been lecture and me about Jordan speeds, and Rory mcilroy and Justin Rose. And they're going to be the next tiger. There's never going to be another tiger. He threw his clubs these Suora didn't look like a country club. Guy was great at eleven. He was different. The red shirt, the galleries he moved the earth. He was a walking soon NAMI. Tiger was different the injuries even now the divorce the stuff and I know what you're saying old cranky Gulf guy. It's a shame that you have to do that, to be interesting. No, it's not. It's called life. Don't you stop for a car wreck? Come on Gulf guy. There's a car wreck eight cars piled up. You don't you don't stop and look. Oh, you're the one cool guy who doesn't I do. Everybody does Dustin Johnson, by the way, his fascinating hot life. Drug issues. Meltdowns inconsistent play bombs it off the tee jeez fascinating. Dustin johnsons. Fascinating. Because he's flawed because he's imperfect just like tiger. Woods. Tiger Woods imperfect. He's real. It's why. Kevin Durant interesting. It's why Aaron Rodgers is interesting. It's why a lot of people think Russell Wilson's boring and Jared Goff is boring because you get the same guy. Andrew luck his mooring. I get it. I just like my quarterbacks boring but I don't like mine. Golfers boring Arnold Palmer wasn't boring. Lee Trevino wasn't boring. Tiger. Woods wasn't boring. Phil mickelson. Ted all sorts of controversies. He's not boring. I every time I'm opening up something about Phil Mickelson. He didn't trouble doing something here. Something there and this bet and this stock, and he's fascinating is the only guy in sports. I've never had on the show. I have on the show. Phil mickelson. I love the guy. I can't turn off. Phil mickelson. I can turn off. Justin Rose can turn off Rory McElroy. I can turn off Jordan speed. I couldn't turn off tiger. So it's my hot Gulf tank. By the way, how how would the gallery respond to my hot take? That's, that's the same applause. Kepco gets. In. Nobody's saying he's not great. But you people have been telling me for a decade this guy's gonna be tiger. This guy's gonna be tight. There's never going to be another Mohammed Ali. It's never going to happen, so rare, so you or never gonna have another Tiger Woods not going to have we almost had, we've had people close to Michael Jordan. Kobe Bryant was close in the Bronx. Sometimes it's better. But, but Tiger Woods we've had a lot of good basketball players. But Tiger Woods changed ratings. I mean he changed ratings on the US open on the masters like people just left watching these legendary tournaments. I've never wa-. I've, I haven't missed a master's in a US open. I have a Kentucky Derby. I mean Nike literally said, let's go all in on Gulf Nike, the jogging running football uniform gummy. Let's go on golf to golf tiger leaves as pull out of Gulf dick sporting goods biggest sports company in the country. Moved out of golf when tiger moved away from Gulf. It's nothing against Brett Brett, the guy can bench press Rhode Island Brooks. There you go. Brooks Brooks kept. I'm not denying. He's great. I'm not denying. It can bench press me. I'm not denying any of that. I'm not denying. He's amazing. But he not interesting not fascinating lets you sit in a course old and had goals. That's really negative just honest, Phil Mickelson's. Fascinating doesn't Johnson tiger. Woods, Jack, nNcholas, there are a lot of guys that are interesting Dustin Johnson. I just I to be honest with you. I like people with issues. I like people when it comes to golf and tennis, these individuals sports team sports. I don't want you to be a wreck because you're part of a team a collective. But when it comes to skiing, and tennis, and golf. I like a little juice. I like a little energy. I like a little hot mess. I do I do that. Tiger masters win. Why was that so fascinating? Because for like years, he was a, you know, you see him on the video. He's learned. He's on the road. He's a messed up, and then he recovers from it, and his redemption. And that's what Hollywood movies about. I mean, by the way, Agassi, we learn years later, didn't math, Pete Sampras did not Pete Sampras was boring Agassi was flawed and fascinating one more heard the herd streams, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week within the iheartradio app. Search her to listen live or on demand whenever you like Big Ben is hosting this Steeler skill players at his lake house this week, where Colin was very right, doodoo Smith Schuster James Connor? There's the picture at his leg house on the but well isn't that exactly what we predicted? Isn't that exactly what we predicted we said, you watch big band come out so focused and so driven to prove Antonio Brown. Wrong Latvian bell wrong to shut Cleveland up, and I've been saying, I cannot wait for this year for Big Ben in the Pittsburgh Steelers. You folks have given this division to Baker, and Lamar Jackson and Baltimore and Cleveland omra, I'm Rydin, and I'm rolling with Big Ben and the Steelers and the logo and the front office and that owner and that veteran head coach Mike Tomlin who driven me crazy before, but Mike Tomlin's also want a lot of divisions and a Super Bowl and a lot of big games. And I'm rolling with Pittsburgh, Odell Beckham and Baker yesterday or screaming at our bub innocent radio host, and here's a guy camaraderie on a boat with his teammates hanging out barbecuing. This is exactly exactly what I predicted. Al-sadis Benz Benz career is not as linear as Tom Brady's. It's been interesting tad bumps. There's been four stages of big Ben's career number one talented, but he inherited a great roster. He won a Super Bowl, and he didn't have a huge part. The second stage was like year three through year. Like nine he has absolutely arrived. He's an all time talent, and he's carrying even average defenses then there were staged three he's getting hurt. Maybe got a little loose little sloppy. Little rich had kids. Maybe the focus is off kind of the roller coaster can't beat the patriots. I believe he's entered stage four which is resurrection. And resolve better shape guys that drove him nuts out of the building. No more talking about retirement. Have you noticed that talking about extending his career inviting people over to his house off season? Resolve resurrection focus. Yeah. His his career. Tom Brady's career has been you know, a little like a little like Tom Hanks. You know it's just win after win after win. Maybe not every year. Tom Hanks's, adn occasional bad movie falls it with a home run. You know and Ben's career is been hit with hit with hit hit hit with hit. It's been a little bumpy. But this story is something I absolutely love I've said it for years, give me the owner the GM the coach and the quarterback. And if they're all near an A B, plus or an A I am rolling with it. I don't know what Freddie kitchens is. Freddie. We'll do. I think the Browns have a owner dwelling to Brown's eight coach. I think they have a b quarterback who could move into a different area. I think they're GM is super super good at finding talent, but not building chemistry. So I can't any moved him. But God, I love this story on Pittsburgh. I love it on Big Ben. It's it's falling right into what we thought would happen. I'm gonna prove Tonio Brown wrong. I'm gonna prove we don't need Levy embel-. I'm gonna prove I wasn't the problem. You watch him now. He's hanging out watching come into the best shape. He's ever been in camp. You're going to hear that story in the next three months best shape. He's ever been in Mark. My words let's shift to this. Rockets, general manager, Darryl MAURICE smart guy like him a lot really thoughtful loves analytics. He's kind of, you know, there was money ball. Now they have Maury ball threes. Threes, threes, threes, mid range jumper band should be noted. Chris Paul was the best player on the floor and their last game of the year. And Chris Paul's amid range jumper guy. I know all you analytic mavens wanna you wanna put the pocket protector until she after shoot threes. Or your evil Houston's number one in the analytics, Golden State this year dropped the seventeenth in Maury ball so slowdown but he was said this yesterday. He said, anytime you've got the best player in the world's at Daryl Morey, meaning James harden, you got a chance if you look at the history of NBA championships. You know the teams with the best player we feel James harden gives us a shot every year. Yes. Analytically analytically. I'm not going to deny that James harden is a top three player in the NBA, but let's look at reality, and not math. The reality is that NBA legacies and reputations are built on playoff success. I didn't make that rule up. I didn't make that rule up. Those are the rules. I don't think speed limits should be fifty five but those are the rules. That's why drive around fifty five. Have you don't win in the postseason. Dan marino. You don't get to be in the greatest conversation. And those are the rules in the NBA. Secondly, the mid range jumper, by the way, is having a playoff renaissance and Joel Embiid and Jaanus are two superstars, and they're never going to be great at shooting. The three I doubt it seriously. And Kevin Durant. Still the best to shooter in the league and Colli shoots a great to and Portland's been living off mid-range jumpers and last night, Golden State lived off to not the three late. And also James harden. And this is just a reality. Not analytically. I don't know if analytics picks this up, but because of his body and because of his style, he wears down late and seasons. He just looked tired. He's just not as good when you get past the first round sometimes late in the first round at maybe it's his body type. Maybe it's a style, which is ball Centric dominating the ball. But his style does not lend itself to be in great in June and late may and folks, it doesn't matter what the analytic say as a boxer if you're never the champ, you're not in the conversation of greatest or second, greatest doesn't matter. If you have the most knockouts you have the best punch ratio, you land, the most punches you gotta hold the belt or you're not in the conversation. Dan, Marino's arguably the greatest pure passer in football history. Not in the conversation greatest. And right now, there are four words that sup James Harden's career based on the data. Those are not best ever words. That's how you sum up James hardened career based on the data, nobody wants to hear that. We're going to pass the greatest player on the torch from LeBron. It may have just been passed a K D. And then if you honest went to couple, maybe it'll be honest. But we're not talking Janas great until he went to title. And by the way, Katie wasn't even in the conversation until he want a couple. And LeBron's leaving that conversation because he can now can't make the playoffs. So I don't need data to describe Durant. I don't need data to describe Michael Jordan, or LeBron or Kobe or shack. I don't need data for any of those guys. Okay. If you start talking about your OPB. Yes, you know, me and go baseball stats. Mickey Mantle could play. I don't need data. I don't need any data. Mike trout compla-. I don't need his batting average. I don't care. What Derek Jeter is batting average was. I don't care about rod, Caruso, Tony Gwynn. He could hit. Wade boggs. They could hit you start moving into the data stuff you're out in the conversation for at least for greatest player ever be sure to catch live editions of the heard weekdays at noon eastern, nine AM Pacific on Fox Sports radio affects one and the iheartradio app is still in New York. Okay, let's, let's not waste any time here with speaking of veteran, newsman, have you noticed. If you notice Broussard when he goes to New York City kind of males out here, have you noticed? How handsome and debonair areas? Let's go to the coward, global satellite network. The guy looked like Tom Ford model on what the hell's going on. With Bruce are we've got these pocket squares so tight. Look at that I don't know how to take that as a compliment or is that a an insult when I'm in LA. I'm not sure well, I see the way Parker dresses. You definitely need to step it up out here just to make that odd couple show. We're gonna FOX more radio. I was saying it's been a bad couple, it's been a bad month for the analytic mavens because I'm watching Golden State last night. Chris, and in that fourth quarter they just went for the best shot Portland with a lead took fourteen threes. And in some instances, I thought bad shots. What do you make of Golden State? You know you talked about it earlier this year. You're the first tip me off to this. They are not in Houston's class as a three ball team. They really work a lot for the best shot. And I thought last night was an example of that. No, you're not. You're totally on point, and not just in the fourth quarter. But generally, the, the great misperception about Golden State is that they're just this three point shooting team, hoist a bunch of shots from thirty feet. Yeah. They do have the two best shooters to the best shooters of all time in clay, and staffing in when Durant there. But they were second in the league this regular season in mid range shots. They get back door layoffs. Steph and other guys will dry get dribble drives and finish at the rim. And then, of course, the three point shot. So while Houston and last night, Portland Milwaukee, you know, all these teams have gone overboard with the three point shot, Golden State, which changed the game. They still have a great balance. And that is one of the reasons why they are the best team in the league because of that balance thirty two and four. When Katie doesn't play in Steph does, how do you think this is landing on, Kevin Durant, watching this transpire? The Kevin Durant is a human being. I that means inside is heartening. I mean period the you, you love it. If, if Nick ride or Jason McIntyre was to fill in for your show and do a pretty good job. But if one of them filled in for your show, and the ratings skyrocketed, you'd be upset because you're a human being, I would too. I mean, in less Kevin Durant. Is Jesus Christ that he's gotta be hurting with the way they're playing without him. So I just think look, we I heard you alluded to earlier if they win this championship without Kevin Durant. He's got a boat if he has some people, I'm not one of those people. I don't think you are either, but there are people feigns an ex players current players who be little his two championships. Even though it was the finals MVP even though he's arguably the best player in the world, they belittle those two championships. We are CLYDE Frazier. Do it say, there's an Asterix by it. What do you think that it'll be if they win without him? They'll belittle them even more Marcus Thompson. You know you love him on your show. I love him. He just came out with a book, K D. Kevin Durant relentless pursuit to be the greatest if that if that title is accurate and Durant really wants to be the greatest ever play. He has no choice. But to get out of Golden State and go somewhere and try to lead his own to title. I saw this story, and I want you to address it. I'll talk about it later because I think the Eastern Conference could be in trouble if Kyrie Irving goes west, there's a story now that Kyrie's considering the Lakers. And so as Anthony Davis and that NBA executives are petrified of kyri and Anthony Davis joining LeBron. Can you refute it confirm it? What do you make it at story? Yeah. I mean, look, everything I'm being told and this is by people close to this situation is that there is very little almost no chance of Kyrie Irving going to the Lakers. Now he will meet with them out of respect for LeBron, obviously, they've rekindled their relationship, but I this would shock people close to kyri I if he decided to go back to play with LeBron and the Lakers, obviously, there's a chance of Anthony Davis going there. But I think there's a better chance of both of those guys KBA aid, or kyri NA d go into New York. We know about Kyrie's ties with, with Kevin Durant. You know, if they go, they're, they're, they're not Kyrie's. Not joining somebody else's team even though katie's the better player is kind of both at him going there together. The reason I think a D could wind up with the Knicks is because David Griffin, the new president general. Manager in New Orleans is going to make it very difficult on the Lakers to get an Anthony Davis. Now, I'll think you'll make it impossible, but it's going to be hard. And if he really likes RJ bear, who they could give from the Knicks if they trade with the Knicks Ray d and you unite the room mates, the great friends, the former all Americans that Duke put them together New Orleans. That's a great story line. Everybody would be into it and they're too great young players. So I think New York is in the driver's seat, and the favorite to get Anthony Davis, bud. The way Milwaukee Toronto, probably isn't fascinating to the masses. We've got the Colli could lead Toronto story you and I talked about it this week. You know, it's really interesting when you look at this Milwaukee team in their salaries and their youth, and the star and the coach if Anthony Davis does not go east. If Kevin Durant does not go east. If we did go west. I it looks like to me Milwaukee could dominate the east for a long time to people in the league. Are they talking about that? Well, so many people in the league are convinced that affidavits will end up in the east, and that carry Irving will stay in the east, whether it's Boston. Although a lot of people think he's out of there. They think it's New York, you know, there may be an outlier here there that thinks they're going to go to LA and then most thing, K D is going to New York as well. So I don't think people fear a lopsided league as it has been like the east has one or two good teams. And then everybody else's in the west Jaanus though, you're, you're right about them if that were to happen, having a chance to dominate the conference the way, LeBron James has if your scenario came true. I mean Philadelphia would be the only game in their way. And there we know how mature they are. No about Joel embiid's health issues. It could be LeBron James all over again. But here's something else Collin, we need to look at. What is Yang? This is what is. His ceiling like if the Milwaukee Bucks win the championship this year that will be completely unprecedented. I don't think we've ever seen a team go from the sixteenth best record or somewhere around there to the NBA championship in one year without adding a major star. The closest I can think of you'll remember this was Portland in one thousand nine hundred seventy seven but they did add marines Lucas, who wasn't all star? So this is unprecedented. What does this say about how good Jaanus is and wait till the as three point shot? He's getting better from behind the arc. I think in two years he will be a very competent three point shooter, probably round thirty six thirty seven thirty eight percent from three he's going to be unstoppable, and he could wind up eventually putting himself in that goat conversation.

It's a leap of faith because I kind of get into his computer right now. And he's got a lot of money and who knows wreck what mischief. I could get up to his computer computer but I am a bit of a boy scout. So it's all good but Yeah no it was revealing Rubio. They'll say that. Well I if I if nothing else you know when you get the Russ loves to roll big. He loves her all big so. I know you were listed yesterday. Shelby up of a day or two but the parties that the guy goes to that. That's you know yesterday. The story that that's all the wing party went to Beverly Hills. It's yes those crazy different life stevie. Oh my God yeah yeah totally different. Like Funny Guy Though. He's he's a very outspoken. And it doesn't really give a shit so do appreciate the plug. He gave our podcast. This Steve Worn project. But could it. Could you do me just a small favor that when you know when you're enough noble what on asking I'm asking is when you reference it. It's even less work though. It's you'll have as lizzie would last maybe not always reference it with the word little. So is that little podcast. Because Buster Outta control successful podcast. I don't I know it is but I gotta be careful. I don't want you know the deal was I was supposed to suspend ables. That's that's all. I'm supposed to do that and they can't. You gotta be careful. Steve how does how does the word little do anything for you. Well because I wanted I just wanted to make sure these people don't come forward and say look at. You had a deal in this frigate contract that you can't do another podcast so goes podcast so I'm coming from a point of Grayson humility. Nice and normally. I don't buy your expeditions to go. Buy Your explanations. But I'm going to buy that one. I'll allow it counselor if I wouldn't want to say I'm GonNA massive jointly successful Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. Of course what I like. Is that so many listeners listeners. Alert along for the ride from our T. days. That's that's one of the things that are cool because as I have always said the listeners. Remember more about our radio careers careers and the things we've done on the air then you and I do put together a smelling a sharpy right now. You're a fresh sharpie. Really high fat ones used to have on your kids like this big fat Windsor about. I don't know they're about eight inches long. But they're really really fat. I used to make. NHL Charts at my dad bought me about twenty of them so all the different set Nhl colors and those and the smell of those things that get in there. And I'd make my little hockey shirts and things like that. During playoff time keeping track of who was lost. I was a very very Brain damage kid. I think from all that sure absolutely. Yeah yeah there's no doubt about it. I'm trying to think what you know what our parents did or allow us to do that. Today would would probably end up having your kids ripped ripped your hands lying down in the back window of the car filled with small of that for sure. You're lying down with the no seat belts. That's a good one because because you're at a great level too because not only GonNa go flying Ford but you're like in a perfect level to go crashing right through the front windshield. Yup that that one that one for sure the other one How how `bout now it's not quite their fault for this? But how about outside in the blazing hot summer days with nothing on no sunblock. Oh yeah you know doing around in our speedo is like we did. Ah Walking around like and then being fried alive you know and then the parents just going. Oh that's too bad. I guess you were out in the sun too long yeah defect. Do you think that's what it is. Okay my torsos on fire here. I can't even you know he couldn't even move my arms up. You know for the. There's a bunch of things Steve. The parents wouldn't get away with today lawn darts while you're getting baked in the ASSAN. Let's play some lawn darts. That's that's true so many dangerous toys. We had kids. Yeah swimming along. Uh Steve that was a very good idea. It's not a good idea stupidest thing I ever did my life when you talk about swimming. We had an above ground. Pool is fifteen by thirty if you you can picture that and it was about. I don't know four and a half five feet deep down. We put a solar blanket on it and like an idiot. A Moron me and my pals would spacey stand on the side of the pool and then jump into the middle of the solar panel and so as you saw solar colored blanket and then you'd go basically downward but then it would all kind of sucking around you like. She's and then he'd be like struggling to get out a couple at the time I get most of the time. You get a seamlessly but every once in a while he'd be like this this This suction it's it's going on way too long here Eh. And then finally still. Those are the days when my parents. My parents were great. They were wonderful wonderful. I'm you know they used to do stuff. You couldn't do it today. Steve Absolutely do that today. But you know where they take your hand and they shove it into the the fan belt of the car right back then and you're just having a laugh or to share back around those days it was so funny they they dunk your toe into was just hot water so the dunker towed into the burning up and pull your foot out in God we jerk your leg back. And she's I. I hate to break this to you Jimmy. But that's that's not really common parenting you're describing their. I'm sorry you can't do it today. Steve but back Dan got it. It was so much fun hilarious. We should launch into some sports. You've got lots to get to over the course of the program as you. Well know because we've describe that we've talked about it off the air and we've decided it's going to be every Sunday we're going to do. The non edited version so on Sunday. We'll do it.

Locations or Popeye's Candida Dot Com. Let's begin today James by talking about a guy that I think we both have a lot to say about. So that's what I always tend to drive toward I and that's tiger woods is started with that what has he. He is tied the record. Sam SNEAD's record with eighty two victories. Wasn't that long. Thought this guy might be done. Any wins the masters stors kind of went through a scuffling period this past year and then in Japan ties Sam snead's record and you're starting to feel again. Hey Hey maybe sky's the limit again for this guy. Well that's that's the incredible part of it. which is as you can tell him? Sort of staggering through this. Because I just thought it was great. I've always been tagger fan and a huge fan of what he's done a couple of couple interesting stats that. Come up with Steve. Before I talk about how phenomenal this is that what tiger has done over his life. You know he won his first event in one thousand nine hundred ninety six or seven when he won the masters. There's that year he he's you know since that time he's he's gone onto just bust everything you know. He's got his eighty second win. He's won more than that. He's one other tournaments okay more than one three. US junior amateurs packed back three of them. We went through Sam's back to back just incredible but the ages the issue. Here Steve. The ages the story tigers forty two or three years old. And he's in a sport. Where you you you know your your ability and skill begins to wane as you get older and for perspective snead was fifty you too when he won his last title? Yeah with less competition agreed when Sam snead played taggers. Done this at a time when young guys are coming at them left and right. You know they're pumping Oh golfers now at a college who are incredibly talented. who well her more mentally prepared for what lies ahead? They hit it further than anybody. The the ability of chip and Putt is is much better because of the way he can coach him now with video. That's come such a long way. You know we talked about before. The this is amazing that this guy into his forties if you are nineteenth eighteen steve. You're nineteen or twenty or twenty one years old and your good like Hofland you know the guy won the US last year the US amateur and now he's on the tour and he's really good. People are saying big things if you walked up to instead of teaming up with a forty three year old. They'd probably go all bring it on bring it on going to kill him. You know and of course course tiger doesn't it as far but it just an amazing story that he that he won in a look at that event who he beat you. The these weren't muggers men who were in the field. So Gary Woodland's been a treat to watch. He's at a terrific. You know last twelve months rory mcelroy Hideki Matsui Yama so these were some big names. Try to chase him down and He stared them down. Yeah the do people showed up in droves the it looks like a major and I've learned some since then you. I just thought well there but let's not forget. Tigers mother is from Thailand and so he the last time he was over in Asia was in six. I think oh five hundred six. So he's got a connection there on his on his mother's side to getting over and playing around there in Japan or in China or title. Enter these other places. So it's it's pretty cool. The people were not not ten. Deep Steve Fifty fifty trying to get a look at them. You know to see him and He the reason. WE'RE RED Steve. Two here's the other reason everyone you know that you know. He always wears red on the final around. It's because the days of the week in tires named after colors and Sunday is red. Oh or the the guts got some deal with the with color in the in the name of the days of the week. The stuffing the stunned believable. It's really crazy it's crazy the tribute today for Soak Web Solutions Dot COM for all your web design and maintenance needs spin your web with Silk Tiger as before his twenty third birthday seven. PGA Tour Wins. My question for you James. Can you name the only active player with more than that. You'RE GONNA have to give me that again now. Just to clarify. Tiger Woods has seven victories. He had seven victories before his twenty third birthday name the only active player who had more than that before his twenty third birthday. Yes sir there was some maniac named Horton Smith who had twice as many victories before his twenty third birthday fourteen. Twelve guys probably true showing up to play golf Well I'm going to take a few guys here because I like to flicked pair it down a little bit so active really immediately I think Jordan Speed and Rory mcilroy ACA Roy there's no way fielded that don't think rory worried Jordan speed up. It's one of those two all right you'll need to pick one because you're right. y'All GonNa Save Rory rory wonderful. Oh ooh I'm so sorry. Thank you for playing Jordan speed. This year answer you remind me I loved I loved I love when people lost because you still go. What are you doing? Oh I'm so sorry I got it wrong too bad. You're getting fuck all today. Get you reminded me of Ood. WHO KNOWS I? One of those Adam Sandler movies where they had a game show host on his Adam Sandler's character's on some I don't know reach for the top thing and he comes up with the most boneheaded answer of all time and as it's happening is the nice music going and as viewer you're saying yourself always winning everybody over with this really motivational answer. When it would be the end of the day it was all bullshit and then the a game show host comes on and just absolutely read them the riot act we are? We're stupider for having heard it. May God have mercy on your soul. It was fantastic tastic anyway. ooh sorry Oh so things. Things are going well for Tiger Woods and things are going very well. Percents Forward Nick Paul and it wasn't a very good saved by Aaron Dell and didn't get much favors in the way of Eric Carlson's help as well air. Carlson by the way was on for every single goal. We'll send win five to over the sharks and that certainly bodes well for the sends moving forward because of course part of the Carlson deal was the acquisition -sition of what turns out to be a twenty twenty first rounder and that is going to be a deep draft that everyone says and obviously the worst. That San Jose does this year the a better off the sends will be with that draft picks of the sends could end up if both teams have a tough year with two very high. First round draft picks would be excellent for the rebuild but that of course that clip courtesy of sports net. What is the deal with Nick Paul? Now five years ago no more than five years ago it happened in July of twenty fourteen. Nick Paul was one of the pieces. The sense brought in in the Jason Spencer Trade and and as the Spencer thing went along and we saw with the sends ended up with the guys like Alex Goop till. And when you say. WHO's that you're right to ask stat? Who the hell is that? So Alex Up till was in that deal. Alex she was in that deal like there was maybe a second round of the tournament. Gabriel GONYEA and he is gone on and of course Nick Paul and so for five years fans have been going. That guy looks like he's got all the tools but that is not happening for them and even going into last season or this past season people are wondering okay me is probably the end. He's probably a burned out his final chance. They signed into one more one year contract and only because of injury. Nick Paul is back in the NHL and man has he looked unbelievable This claim that Meditation had something to do with it. We talked about in an earlier episode. But this guy is big. He is a huge reach. Hard and the puck great shot. He's everywhere he wants to be going American Express or is that Visa no-visas that anyway. It's been a treat you to watch nick. Paul go in these last few games in the question I had on the RB computing web. Poll is is this. A small sample size is this. Just you know maybe a hot streak a little hot streak or has the light finally gone off or gone on for Nick Paul. Well I always always compare stuff close to home for me. Although he's you know he's more established in James Neal who got traded to the oilers and they got rid of him because he was no good anymore in Calgary right according to them The same as the same as we jacked Lucici in the to Calgary from from Edmonton because you have a shitty year here James Neal now has nine or ten goals You know I don't know Lucia's doing down there but but that story of James Neal who was no good and people are GonNa why the fuck this Guy Wade trained for EMI's little older shit like ahead and so isn't it. Now he's lighting it up you know Don Cherry with. It wasn't a meditation reason. There wasn't anything sort of weird about it Cheri. Just said the way he treated has a lot to do with how you how you play. And I've had discussions with other players about that too and the you know and asked if you you treat someone really really well if you treat a guy like a superstar even though he's not can affect the way they play and all the all the players absolutely lutely man absolutely or conversely you know do do it the other way and watch the guy going the tank if you don't sort of support him emotionally and all that stuff so I don't know what this guy's done anyway. Well I think the thing is when you're looking at a guy who has the tool set and he's still only twenty four years sold. You maintain some level of patients that it will all sort of Gel. You can't ignore everything that Nick Paul is able to like six foot. Three two hundred twenty eighty pounds and is a great reach has a great shot. He's my maybe the hardest slap shot on the team though he hasn't been invited. Any All Star Games quite obviously because he's scuffling fling in the minors for so long but you have to kind of rely on just the eyeball test. There's something there. There's a player there. I've always felt that way about that. Guy Logan Browning on the other hand the same kind of story because he has so many great tools so many things he does well the intensity just wasn't there and now he's found that and so That's the master being. Gm You know patients can be a virtue and It's really paid off in both of these cases The Nick Nick. Paul won a much bigger surprise because so many people were writing him off. I guess that's true of Logan Paul as well or Logan Brown as well but let's get to some of the emails that we got at Tsn and Steve which is where the pole is residing. Joshua writes in all with the current. GM Paul should be signed for seven years at six million a year per in no time tongue in cheek there Rick Grenell Rights. I like what I see but ask me again in ten games. Too small sample size. Got Five More Stefanos. Napolitano Rights Mark Stone wasn't a fulltime. NHL Until He was twenty three and look at him. Now I'm not saying he'll be Mark Stone but development that is a linear and certainly isn't the same for every player we should probably reevaluate after ten games but as long as he keeps his effort level high he is so easily. NHL Are. Harry writes hopefully a bit of both and can be a bottom six Ford for the long term Aj Sinclair he's a talented with a great shot and you cannot teach big conduct knocked off too soon to say it would be a big plus if he could be a consistent top six it would help rebuild and is it just me or does he looked kind of likes cody cece. An Andrew Rights writes. I'm not seeing that by the way and writes never got the right opportunity with the previous coach Bryan. Murray obviously saw something in him. So that is the extent of the feedback. And thank you for all of it. The Web Paul is brought to you by RB computing. The guys that are be wanted to mention that the new Third Gen. Amd Rising Isan processes are now available for shipping. They've got precision boost overdrive and customize performance with one click these new. AMD processors kick ass. So if you need an upgrade or a new custom PC visit the guys at our be computing in bells corners. What six dash two three five menton place have a good day? Drop that Mike Right now. I know it's on a Mike. Stand right now but not tip it over or something anyway. Well you know me Stevie on break I'm breaking down. Why why guys good or why isn't just just terrible at it but I can't you know that's I mean that's such great news for Ottawa? Right because up to now they've had I don't know horrible news. Yeah pretty much so pretty much trying to figure out you know so much comes to lock in this stuff really does write their stories every year. Right about guys is who are who who get better and better and or really rise quickly in this guys like Scott Sabri. There's a guy played in the minors until really was twenty seven didn't as a single NHL game And he's been plugging away in the minors for all this time just a scrappy guy. Never a skilled guy but lots of energy the physicality and of course always a willingness to drop the gloves. He said ninety fights if he goes back to his H L career and no one was talking. I mean no ooh Buddy was talking about this guy as we went into sends training camp and somehow some way as all these other skilled guys all these first rounders guys the sends pick in the draft. Guys that were brought in because they traded well these big stars last year all these guys is slowly disappearing during camp wave after wave of cuts and still Scott Saban was there and he is making the team and it got me thinking about how much it reminded me of the Matt Cartner Story. I know you know the Carter family a little bit you were out there for the Terry Cartner tribute that they did at the winchester arena. Many moons ago I was theref- angry. AL was was connection. Yeah right because he's winchester and that's where they're from New York so I thought I think to myself okay. Well that that there's a lot aww parallels one can draw between Scott Sabir and Matt Cartner in both in their late twenties when they finally become regular. Nhl Irs longtime in the American Hockey League Getting there fulltime carpenter played a game in San Jose but for the most part both of them starting with their hometown. Teams Cassatt Brinson Orleans kid and so I reached out to Matt Carpenter. I said what do you think. Any thoughts on Sabrin any advice for him and he and he wrote back to me. Yeah what a great story. There's nothing quite like fighting fighting and claw your way through the minors just for that one chance to prove yourself in the NHL when it finally happens it feels like a dream. That's what it felt like for me and I'm sure Scott is feeling doing the same way. My first few games were awesome. You always believe you're good. Enough toughened often playing those first few games just gave me more belief in my abilities. Scott's getting to play early in front of his family and friends every night and that's something not every player gets delivered through. It's definitely special and gives you a little more jump a little more energy when you're out there on the ice and I'll tell you what all that energy was needed for me. When facing some of the tougher lads in the game? I'm sure he's having the time of his life and he just needs to enjoy every second of it. Don't get comfortable. Work can develop as much as possible but have a ton of fun along the way and it's great to see a fellow Brockville brave alumni work his way to the NHL. So that's from former. Senator Matt Cartner. Dr Scott Sovereign Pretty Cool. That's a hell of a response. I'd say F- fairly from the loquacious Gartner. Wow and he showed his valley routes right after that right. 'cause I was just asking free in a real quick quarter comment on it and stuff and he wrote that really really lovely thoughtful text back sure and then then you wrote a second one and again is valley routes showing there. How was that bud? Uh so good all the time. Liam's with the bud ie she going. How's it going? How's it going there but but lands right in my wheelhouse? Not Have you speak Sika a negative about alley accents I love Liam. I've been Liam's corner for years is is cartner done. Is he retired. Yeah he called it call it quits. I think it was three summers ago but I believe he's now I think he's coaching in Bridgeport as an assistant on that you know I do like stories like that I really do. How can you not like you know in take in hockey? It's a little. It's a little different than other sports that you're either in the minors or or or you make you know like a lot of guys can play in the minors for a long time. They go from junior to plan pro hockey in the minors and You know I love these stories. There's a lot of them in the sport of baseball man that he got the same sort of deal where a guy comes up to the majors and with and he's pitching in the majors and they'll they'll bust into this sort of whole bio of the guy. And Oh my God Steve Do. Some of these guys grinded ended out to make it to the big to make the bigly. You're just not going down to AAA here okay. He was good he went there. They took their now double well. He's no good they're doubly so we went down to single ball and he was pitching there for and you can go even lower Steve. In those organizations you can go to SORTA unranked baseball. I don't know what it is. But there's some wonderful wonderful stories. Man were guys clawed their way. Just like partners at carberry clawing long fighting their way just to get a shot you know just to just to get one so yeah and it's nice when it happens because each one of those guys represents probably I don't know two thousand was in guys who were also close. You know I didn't get the break Didn't on something was just missing but there was so much skill they're all the same. There's so many wonderful hockey players particularly in this nation that never made a penny doing it your go down to the Ra Center and watch the Open Division and look at some of the guys out there who never made a penny playing the game and you go. Oh my God that is so good so could just crazy because an example of that speaking speaking of Gulf right this guy you know people talk about tigers records that though he just wanted his eighty second taste Sam snead or beat them or whatever it is title read them tied in the WHO who would ever come near any of his rector. We'd Better Watch overbrook scepter. But he he battled he was over in Asia Asia. Somewhere playing golf thinking about quitting. You know and so not winning many tour events though. He's just went in the majors right. He's GonNa have to stop. Hickory is rank and file event success success is going to have to improve a little here. It's like he doesn't bother with them. Alamos I'm above this. Yeah any Niaz. Let's take a pause and what we do know I just. I just misread. The situation felt like if you're grabbing the ball and you're running with it when you just sort of grab it for a second second inflicted back at me. We're in the middle of audio flea flicker here right then quickey mail from Dave and he writes. Jimmy seems to have old man music tastes.

Maybe with Larry King Larry King still around. He's a law F-. Yeah I don't know if I'm looking at a really old thing that I let it flip through facebook or something but he's in he's into charging twelve bucks to go to a concert and not one hundred fifty grasso. He's always been pretty outspoken with that stuff. Like when downloading music. I became a big thing where people would routinely download it illegally. He did a public public service announcement on it about sixty second where he just basically looking at the camera you know good for you. Keep doing that. And while you're added go down to the dealership steel car because that's that's that's way better than paying for. It could neither have to pay any money.
