From One World Trade Center, I'm Alex Myers,
00:02
and this is The Grind.
00:04
Golf's top-rated variety column,
00:07
that appears on GolfDigest.com,
00:10
on Tuesdays.
00:22
What's up guys?
00:23
Here's what I'm buying and selling this week.
00:25
I'm buying Charley Hoffman,
00:26
who after a series of close calls,
00:28
finally won his fourth PGA Tour title,
00:30
at the Valero Texas Open.
00:32
And, as many have pointed out,
00:34
he's a dead ringer for Jeff Daniels' character
00:36
in Dumb and Dumber.
00:39
Man! Love that movie.
00:40
How'd that not win Best Picture?
00:43
I'm selling caddies.
00:44
Calloway Golf's social media manager, Chad Coleman,
00:48
filled in as Wesley Bryant's caddy this past week
00:51
on the Web.com Tour. What did Wesley do?
00:54
Just win, and break the tournament scoring record.
00:56
Who says you need experience on the bag?
00:59
Ben Hogan used a kid to win the 1951 U.S. Open.
01:03
I'm buying SB2K16.
01:07
Good for Jordan Spieth, Ricky Fowler,
01:10
Justin Thomas, and Smylie Kaufman,
01:12
for living it up during an off-week.
01:14
And thanks to them for letting us live vicariously
01:18
through their experiences.
01:20
Guys - take me with you next time. Please.
01:24
And I'm selling Rory McIlroy,
01:27
for turning down Ricky Fowler's invite to go on the trip.
01:31
Then again, taking a vacation to Barbados with your fiancee,
01:36
doesn't sound that bad either.
01:38
It's not like he was stuck at home doing,
01:40
oh I don't know, yard work.
01:43
Next up: this week in Odd Suspensions.
01:47
Yeah, yeah, Tom Brady got suspended for four games
01:50
for deflating a few footballs.
01:52
But did you hear what happened to Kevin Kisner?
01:55
Apparently, Kevin and a few of his friends
01:57
got suspended from their home course for racing golf carts.
02:02
And you thought Brady had it rough?
02:04
At least he can still play golf at his home course.
02:08
And as always, we end with some random,
02:11
but important, Questions to Ponder.
02:14
Number one: Did Derek Jeter really make a hole-in-one?
02:20
I'm gonna go with no.
02:23
His sister's caption was way too sketchy,
02:25
and there's no way Derek Jeter would get
02:28
that excited about winning a new car.
02:30
Number two: Did Andrew Beef Johnston live up to
02:34
his promise to get hammered after his
02:36
first Tour win last week?
02:38
(singing)
02:41
Yes. Now there's a man of his word.
02:45
And number three: Where did my random questions to ponder
02:49
pose come from?
02:53
My friend Steve made quite the connection to my childhood.
02:58
Apparently, I was born for this.
