00:00
From One World Trade Center, I'm Alex Meyers.
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.
00:12
(funky music)
00:21
What's up guys?
00:22
Here's what I'm buying and selling this week.
00:24
I'm buying Jason Day,
00:26
who went from struggling superstar,
00:28
to Masters favorite with his win at Bay Hill.
00:31
And he became king for a day.
00:35
Get it?
00:37
Came up with that myself.
00:38
King for a Day.
00:40
It's like a play on, you know,
00:42
stupid play on words.
00:43
(laughs)
00:45
Show the picture of him with the king?
00:46
Get it?
00:47
(Producer) Yeah, yeah.
00:48
So it's like, king for a day?
00:50
(laughs)
00:56
(camera beep)
00:57
I'm selling, butchered high-fives.
01:00
Golfers have a reputation for celebrating awkwardly.
01:03
Troy Merritt did not help that reputation.
01:07
I'm buying the Bryan Bros.
01:09
You're probably familiar with the trickshot videos.
01:11
But they're really good at real golf too.
01:14
Wesley won on the Web.com tour
01:15
with his older brother George caddying for him.
01:18
That victory all but guarantees a trip
01:20
to the PGA Tour next season,
01:21
and all the Taco Bell the duo could ever desire.
01:25
I'm selling Jordan Spieth,
01:27
only giving Stephen Curry
01:29
five shots in their golf match this summer.
01:32
That would be like Steph spotting Jordan
01:34
'H' in a game of Horse.
01:36
Steph, if you need a caddy, call me.
01:40
And I'm buying Britney Spears' backyard.
01:43
The popstar's been accused of
01:45
touching-up photos of herself recently.
01:47
But as for her three backyard golf holes?
01:51
They're real, and they're spectacular.
01:54
On to more important matters,
01:56
this week in pro golfers visiting us in the office.
01:59
You might remember us giving Chelsea Pezzola
02:01
a shout-out a couple weeks back.
02:03
If not, maybe this'll jog your memory.
02:05
Well, Chelsea stopped by to play a little office golf
02:08
and because, The Grind is kind of a big deal.
02:11
Just wait until you see who our guest is next week.
02:14
We don't have a guest next week.
02:17
And, as always, we end with some random,
02:19
but important, questions to ponder.
02:22
Number one: is Rory Mcilroy better at golf,
02:26
or at doing puzzles?
02:32
Guess now we know what he was up to all that time
02:34
he was injured last year.
02:35
Number two: what's tougher to predict,
02:38
March Madness or this week's WGC Dell Match play?
02:45
Put it this way, Kevin Sutherland won this event.
02:49
That'd be like if Holy Cross won the NCAA tournament.
02:52
And number three: has Bill Murray's son, Luke,
02:55
an assistant coach at Xavier,
02:58
really never seen Caddyshack?
03:04
That's just bad parenting right there.
03:06
