From One World Trade Center, I'm Alex Myers
00:02
and this is The Grind, golf's top rated variety column.
00:07
That appears on Golfdigest.com, on Tuesdays.
00:12
(upbeat music)
00:22
What's up guys?
00:23
Here's what I'm buying and selling this week.
00:24
I'm buying Bryson DeChambeau,
00:26
who finished T-4 in his pro-debut.
00:29
In fact, I'm so high on the 22-year-old star,
00:32
that I'm gonna start his own fan club.
00:34
Justin Bieber has his Beliebers,
00:37
DeChambeau will now have his Delievers.
00:41
♫ Then I saw his cap
00:43
♫ Now I'm a Deliever
00:47
♫ Not a trace
00:48
♫ Of two planes in that swing
00:51
♫ I'm in love
00:53
Maybe I should cut it off there.
00:56
I'm also buying Andrew 'Beef' Johnston,
00:58
who won for the first time on a European tour,
01:00
and couldn't wait to go home and get hammered.
01:04
Think he drank a few pints from that trophy?
01:07
I'm selling Josh Pastner.
01:10
The new Georgia Tech basketball coach
01:12
said he won't hire any assistants who play golf.
01:15
That's just blatant hobbyism right there.
01:19
On behalf of Golf Digest,
01:20
we hope the NCAA launches a full investigation.
01:24
I'm buying golf course proposals
01:26
in a much more uplifting story
01:29
involving colleges and golf.
01:30
University of Virginia senior, Lauren Coughlin
01:33
won the ACC Championship
01:35
and then got proposed to during the trophy ceremony
01:38
by UVA football player, John Pond.
01:41
Great stuff, but if I'm going to nitpick,
01:44
now that I'm an expert,
01:46
you're supposed to drop to one knee
01:48
and then pop the question.
01:50
Of course, I'd never correct someone that big.
01:54
And I'm selling Bubba Watson's emojis,
01:56
or as he calls them, Bubba-mojis.
02:00
Look, these are somewhat fun to send to other people.
02:03
Especially other people who are not fans of Bubba Watson.
02:07
But, charging a buck 99?
02:09
Really?
02:11
Full disclosure, I bought them.
02:14
But, since I work at Golf Digest,
02:16
I'm hoping I can expense them.
02:19
Onto more important matters.
02:20
This week, in Somewhat Complimentary Tweets.
02:24
First, we had someone point out
02:26
that what I'm actually buying
02:28
are a lot of sweaters and plaid shirts.
02:32
Thanks for taking the time to match up
02:33
all of my awkward facial expressions.
02:36
But, I don't always wear a sweater and check shirt.
02:41
Damn.
02:42
Then there's this guy,
02:43
who thanked us for making The Grind videos.
02:46
And says he tells everyone he knows
02:48
to watch them while at work,
02:51
when they're pooping.
02:56
I think that's the nicest thing anybody's
02:58
ever said to me.
03:01
And as always, we end with some random,
03:03
but important, Questions to Ponder.
03:06
Number one, is Rickie Fowler's cross-handed swing
03:09
better than my regular swing?
03:15
Yes, much better.
03:18
Number two, is this two-year-old's swing
03:21
better than my regular swing?
03:27
Yes, much better.
03:33
And number three, how many majors
03:36
will Bryson DeChambeau win?
03:40
Wait, are we talking about his career
03:42
or just this year?
03:44
I'm a Deliever.
03:46
Hashtags are gonna be flying.
03:48
I want a million hashtags.
03:50
Hashtag I'm a Deliever.
03:52
I want them all over the place.
