From 1 World Trade Center, I'm Alex Myers,
00:03
and this is The Grind.
00:08
What's up, guys?
00:09
Here's what I'm buying and selling this week.
00:11
I'm buying Jim Furyk,
00:13
who's magical round at the Traveler's Championship
00:15
made him the first golfer in PGA Tour history
00:18
to shoot 58.
00:19
58!
00:22
I didn't think it was possible to shoot 58,
00:23
using Jim Furyk in Tiger Woods's video game.
00:26
I spent a lot of time, trying in college.
00:28
I'm selling people detracting from Furyk's 58,
00:31
because it was only on a par 70.
00:34
Look, was it the greatest round ever?
00:37
No.
00:38
In fact, Furyk's previous 59 was probably better,
00:41
but still, a 58 is a 58,
00:44
so show some respect to Mr. 58.
00:50
I'm buying Russel Knox.
00:52
Wait, why are we buying Russel Knox again?
00:56
Oh right, he won the Traveler's Championship.
01:00
Just kidding.
01:01
Congrats, Russel, on your second PGA Tour win.
01:03
And also, giving us one of the most epic hat tosses
01:05
in golf history.
01:07
And I'm selling Rickie Fowler's Olympic haircut.
01:11
I mean, really Rickie?
01:14
What happened here?
01:16
You trying to scare everyone in the Olympic village?
01:18
On a serious note, I give Fowler a lot of credit
01:21
for being in Rio for the opening ceremony,
01:23
and involving his caddie, Joe Skovron,
01:26
but, again,
01:28
what happened, here?
01:30
This had to be some kind of bet, right?
01:33
I hope.
01:34
Onto more important matters.
01:36
This week in Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretsky
01:38
public displays of affection, or rather,
01:41
public displays of protection.
01:44
Instead of being in Rio, Dustin Johnson is spending
01:46
some quality time with Paulina.
01:49
Ah.
01:50
But some people are still critical of his decision
01:53
to not play in the Olympics,
01:55
and Paulina was not having any of that.
01:58
I'd repeat what Paulina said,
01:59
but I don't think I'm allowed to do that.
02:04
Great job, Paulina.
02:06
Way to stick up for your man.
02:08
And as always, we end with some random,
02:10
but important questions to ponder.
02:13
Number one.
02:15
Was Rickie Fowler's barber cutting under the influence?
02:22
Again, exhibit A.
02:25
Number two.
02:27
Will my producer, Ben Walton,
02:29
ever return from Rio?
02:34
Okay, so we probably shouldn't joke about that.
02:36
Sorry, Ben. Sorry, Mrs. Walton.
02:39
And number three, who will win the Men's Gold Medal in golf?
02:46
I'm not sure,
02:48
but if co-ed boat dancing ever becomes an Olympic sport,
02:52
I know who my money's on.
02:54
Thanks for watching.
