The Grind: Henrik Stenson makes history & a PGA Tour WAG turns swimsuit model
Alex Myers discusses Henrik Stenson's historic win, "Beefsanity," a PGA Tour WAG's bikini shoot, and the unsung heroes of the British Open.
Released on 7/19/2016
From 1 World Trade Center, I'm Alex Myers,
and this is The Grind.
What's up guys?
Straight off the plane from Scotland,
here's what I'm buying and selling this week.
I'm buying Henrik Stenson,
who not only won his first major,
but did it in historic fashion
with final round 63 at Royal Troon.
Oh, and he looks pretty good for a 40 year old,
with his shirt off.
I'm also buying Phil Mickelson,
Lefty did everything right with a bogey-free 65 on Sunday,
and it still wasn't enough to catch Henrik Stenson.
He picked up his 11th career runner up,
despite finishing 11 shots ahead of third place.
However, I'm selling Phil Mickelson's binder clip.
This guy makes $50 million a year,
and they can't find him a hat that fits him properly?
I don't get it.
I'm also buying beef, lots of beef.
The jolly Andrew Johnston,
morphed from a likable curiosity
into a full-blown phenomenon at Royal Troon.
And with a top 10 finish,
it looks like BeefSanity is here to stay.
Beef is the man, by the way,
I mean, you know, I mean, I mean.
And I'm selling my British Open bets.
It's bad enough to lose every single one.
But I'm gonna be kicking myself for a long time,
for not listening to my Scottish caddie
at Prestwick Golf Club,
who told me to bet on Henrik Stenson.
What the stupid I am.
Now onto more important issues.
This week in PGA Tour Wags, doubling as swimsuit models.
Here's Daniel Berger's, Tori Slater,
at something called Miami Swim Week.
And here's Tori with some of her swimsuit modeling friends.
Berger withdrew from the British Open
with a sore left shoulder.
But it looks like Tori had better things to do,
than go to Scotland anyway.
And as always, we end with some random, but important,
questions to ponder.
Number one, who are the unsung heroes of British Open Week?
Gotta give the nod to my co-workers,
Heimie Diez and Steve Hennessey.
First, Heimie for his expert driving and parallel parking.
I don't think I've ever seem him this proud
about a story he's written.
And secondly, there was Steve,
fitting into an even tighter spot
for our drive back to the airport.
What a trooper.
Number two, what's the four day aggregate consumption record
of eating cookies in a media center at a major championship?
I'm not sure, but like Henrik Stenson's scoring record,
I'm pretty sure I shattered this last week.
And number three, who does Johnny the Caddie fancy
at next week's PGA Championship?
Might be worth a trip back to Scotland, just to find out.
