From One World Trade Centre, I'm Alex Myers,
00:02
and this The Grind, golfs top rated variety com.
00:07
That appears on GolfDigest.com
00:10
On Tuesday's.
00:12
(upbeat music)
00:21
What's up guys?
00:22
Here's what I'm buying and selling this week.
00:24
I'm buying Sergio Garcia, who got a huge
00:28
monkey off his back.
00:29
Sergio's win at the AT&T Byron Nelson was his first
00:32
PGA tour title of the Grind Era.
00:36
Great job Sergio.
00:37
How does that feel?
00:40
I thought so.
00:41
I'm selling Muirfield,
00:42
for failing to pass a vote
00:44
to allow women members
00:46
As a result, the course has been taken out
00:48
of the Open championship Rota.
00:49
Good job R&A.
00:51
Bad job Muirfield.
00:54
Guys, you realize its 2016, right?
00:58
I'm buying Rory McIlroy, who won the Irish Open
01:00
thanks to two of the best fairway woods under pressure
01:03
you'll ever see.
01:05
And since I was in Las Vegas,
01:06
I ran down to the Palazzo sports book to place a bet
01:09
before his odds changed for the U.S. Open.
01:12
Savvy.
01:13
#Rory, #lock, #suckerbet.
01:18
And I'm selling bad golf cart driving.
01:21
First, there was a burglar in Florida
01:23
who got caught wet-handed,
01:25
when he drove a cart into a pond.
01:27
And then, there was this guy at the AT&T Byron Nelson
01:31
who ran into a fire hydrant
01:33
to create a different kind of water hazard on the course.
01:36
Poor guy.
01:38
But, I think we just found Southwest Airlines next
01:40
Wanna get away? Commercial.
01:43
Now onto more pressing matters,
01:45
This week in Jordan Spieth breaking hearts.
01:48
Jordan posted this adorable photo
01:50
wishing his girlfriend a Happy Birthday.
01:54
Really sweet stuff Jordan.
01:55
But, apparently, there were a lot of women out there
01:59
who were just a tad bit jealous.
02:03
In any matter, Happy Birthday Annie.
02:05
And as always, we end with some random, but important
02:09
questions to ponder.
02:11
Number one, who is the best player without a PGA Tour title
02:15
in the Grind Era?
02:20
I'm gonna have to go with Louis Oosthuizen.
02:23
Ouch, that's a lot of pressure Louis.
02:26
Number two, did my good friend Kurt have a good time
02:30
in Vegas for his Bachelor party?
02:36
I'd say so.
02:38
And number three,
02:39
Will I be going back to Vegas anytime soon?
02:46
I hope not. I'm too old for that. I'm done.
02:50
It's over. Had a good run, no more.
02:54
