Live from beautiful Augusta National Golf Club!
00:04
Not really.
00:05
Live from Augusta, Georgia!
00:07
No.
00:09
Live from Martinez, Georgia
00:11
at the Golf Digest house.

This is a special Masters Edition of the Grind!
00:17
(rhythmic, energetic music)
00:27
What's up, guys?
00:28
Here's what I'm buying and selling this week.
00:30
I'm buying Jim Herman
00:31
who at age 38 won his first PGA Tour title
00:34
and earned his first trip to the Masters.
00:37
Hey, Jim, feel free to swing by the house.
00:39
I can take you on a tour of Augusta.
00:41
They have a Hooters and a Chili's.
00:44
I'm selling Bubba Watson's sweater vest.
00:47
Bubba filmed a new ad for Stance socks
00:50
shirtless.
00:51
It's funny, at a young age,
00:53
I realized me and golf were meant to be together,
00:56
kind of like me and this chest hair right here.
00:58
(hair dryer blowing)
01:00
Because nothing says
01:01
I want to buy a brand new pair of socks
01:03
like seeing clumps of back hair.
01:05
Back hair.
01:07
I'm buying Lydia Ko
01:08
who won a second-straight major championship
01:11
despite the fact that she might still be eligible
01:14
for the Drive, Chip, and Putt Championship.
01:16
Speaking of which, I'm buying Steven Robert Hernandez
01:20
who won the Boy's Seven to Nine Division.
01:23
Steven's golf game is beyond his years.
01:26
His Tour Sauce game, off the charts.
01:31
(blowing rapidly) Shooter!
01:33
(laughs)
01:34
I'm selling taking a driver off the face.
01:39
You know that trick shot where you hit a tee shot
01:41
out of someone else's mouth?
01:43
Well, spoiler alert,
01:44
it doesn't always work.
01:46
On to more important things
01:48
this week in Being On The Road With My Boss.
01:51
I traveled to Augusta with my boss, Sam Weinman, this week.
01:54
I learned a lot.
01:55
For one,
01:57
Sam,
01:58
aka, Sammy Spillz
02:00
takes his mess on the road with him.
02:02
Look at the damage he did to the airport,
02:05
then to the rental car.
02:07
This is his bedroom
02:08
after one night.
02:09
I also learned that the man likes to pack light.
02:12
Nope.
02:14
Sam might have the biggest roller bag ever built.
02:19
I don't know how this thing rolls around.
02:20
It's a technological marvel.
02:22
Excuse me, what did you pack this week, (laughs) Sam?
02:25
As always, win with some random
02:27
but important questions to ponder.
02:30
Number one,
02:32
who has more hops?
02:34
Charles Barkley or Phil Mickelson?
02:39
(crowd cheering and screaming)
02:43
(shots firing)
02:47
Pound for pound, I gotta go with Sir Charles
02:49
which also makes me wonder,
02:51
how much did he bet on Villanova?
02:53
(cash register rings)
02:54
Number two,
02:55
how many Waffle Houses are there in Augusta, Georgia?
03:01
337.
03:04
It's not a real number,
03:05
but seriously, there's like one on
03:06
every corner down here.
03:09
Am I the only one who sees this?
03:11
Number three,
03:13
would my wife ever let me buy a bounce house
03:16
for our house?
03:20
Hmm, something tells me the
03:22
but Paige Spiranac bought one excuse
03:25
isn't going to fly.
03:27
