I'm Alex Myers and welcome to another addition
00:02
of The Grind, golf's top variety column.
00:05
That appears on GOLFDIGEST.com on Monday
00:09
or Tuesday.
00:21
All right, guys, here's what I'm buying
00:23
and selling this week.
00:24
I'm buying Bubba Watson's wild week.
00:27
Win a golf tournament, hang with Justin Bieber,
00:30
sit court side at an NBA game and film a cameo
00:34
for a TV show,
00:35
speaking of which, Bubba, why didn't you tell me
00:37
you were such a big Boy Meets World fan?
00:39
I can introduce you to my colleague Buddy Lee,
00:42
A.K.A. Minkus.
00:44
Oh, you already met Topanga?
00:48
My offer seems a little less exciting then.
00:51
I'm selling passing kidney stones.
00:54
Bubba also did this last week
00:56
and despite the blood, he says the process was painless.
01:00
Man, he got lucky.
01:02
Did you ever see that episode of Seinfeld
01:04
where Kramer gets one?
01:06
Ooof.
01:07
I'm buying this whole feud between Rory McIlroy
01:11
and Brandel Chamblee.
01:13
That Tiger versus Brandel is so 2015,
01:17
after the Analyst recently questioned if McIlroy
01:22
is spending too much time in the gym.
01:23
Rory responded with a crack about doing squats
01:26
with Brandel on his back and with a couple of intense
01:30
workout videos,
01:31
and I'm selling Tranquility.
01:34
That's the name of Grag Norman's Florida property
01:36
that's for sale.
01:37
It's lovely, Greg, but if I'm going to plunk down
01:40
$55 million, I'm going to need more than one practice green
01:45
in the backyard.
01:47
And I'm going to want my waterfront guest house
01:49
to have more than just two bedrooms.
01:52
Sorry.
01:53
Personal preference.
01:55
Now, on to more pressing matters.
01:57
This week in Paige Spiranac Being Paige Spiranac.
01:59
Check out this brave, stupid,
02:03
stupid guy who let Paige hit a tee shot out of his mouth.
02:12
I'm a huge Paige fan, but you couldn't pay me
02:15
Rory McIlroy Nike money to do that,
02:17
and finally, we end with some random, but important
02:22
Questions to Ponder.
02:24
Number one, will the new Tiger Woods biography
02:27
that's in the works finally tackle his most serious
02:30
problem?
02:32
You know, his jeans?
02:38
Man, I hope so.
02:40
Number two, what's scarier, the bear trap
02:44
that PGA Tour pros face this week at the Honda Classic,
02:47
or the bear from the Revenant?
02:54
Sorry, Jack.
02:55
I'm going to side with Leo on this one,
02:58
and number three, did my coworker Joel Beall
03:03
actually make these delicious chocolate chip cookies
03:07
from scratch?
03:11
Who cares?
03:17
