From One World Trade Center,
I'm Alex Myers and this is the The Grind,
golf's top-rated variety column
that appears on GolfDigest.com

What's up guys?
Here's what I'm buying and selling this week.
I'm buying Adam Scott who won the Honda Classic
without the use of an anchored putter
or the services of caddy, Steve Williams.
The former number one has 12 career PGA tour titles.
That's number one among active players under the age of 40.
What's that I hear?
Did someone say, Big Five?
I'm selling, Sergion Garcia who didn't play terribly,
but who has now converted just three of 13 times.
He's had at least a share
of the 54-hole lead on the PGA tour.
That's not even a decent batting average.
I'm buying Stephan Curry who made an NBA record,
22 three-pointers in two game span,
including this incredible game winner from near half court.
But his most impressive three last week
came on the golf course at Augusta National
on the opening hole.
Stephen Curry, so hot right now.
I'm selling the Ryder Cup party at Jack Nicklaus' house.
As we all know,
♫ Ain't no party like a Nicklaus party
♫ Cause a Nicklaus party don't stop♫
Except, it did stop by 10 P.M.
And let's be honest,
this is going to have no effect on the actual Ryder Cup,
other than maybe Jack Nicklaus ice cream
being named Team U.S.A's official dessert.
And I'm buying Tiger Woods
who took back all of the headlines
with two words and one swing on a simulator.
Woods also attended that Ryder Cup party,
and took his own group of Nike athletes out to dinner.
What a guy.
It was his own restaurant,
but still, he's got a lot of overhead costs to cover.
Now onto more pressing matters.
This week in golf couples,
taking the Oscars way too seriously.
This is Golf Channel's Brandel Chamblee and Bailey Moser
getting all dressed up for a stay-at-home party.
Looking good guys.
Hey Brandel, who are you wearing?
And finally, we end with some random
but important questions to ponder.
Will Donald Trump show up at Doral
for this week's Cadillac Championship?
Who are we kidding?
The better question is whether he'll land
Trump Force One on the gold course.
How was the boy from Room
not nominated for an academy award?
Age bias, that's messed up,
And number three.
How much would it cost to get Chris Rock
to host the golf Ryder's awards dinner?
I'm in for 20.
