From One World Trade Center,
00:01
I'm Alex Myers and this is the The Grind,
00:04
golf's top-rated variety column
00:07
that appears on GolfDigest.com
00:10
on Tuesdays.
00:12
(deep bass techno music)
00:22
What's up guys?
00:22
Here's what I'm buying and selling this week.
00:24
I'm buying Adam Scott who won the Honda Classic
00:27
without the use of an anchored putter
00:29
or the services of caddy, Steve Williams.
00:31
The former number one has 12 career PGA tour titles.
00:35
That's number one among active players under the age of 40.
00:39
What's that I hear?
00:40
Did someone say, Big Five?
00:43
I'm selling, Sergion Garcia who didn't play terribly,
00:46
but who has now converted just three of 13 times.
00:50
He's had at least a share
00:52
of the 54-hole lead on the PGA tour.
00:55
That's not even a decent batting average.
00:57
I'm buying Stephan Curry who made an NBA record,
01:00
22 three-pointers in two game span,
01:03
including this incredible game winner from near half court.
01:07
But his most impressive three last week
01:09
came on the golf course at Augusta National
01:12
on the opening hole.
01:14
Stephen Curry, so hot right now.
01:17
I'm selling the Ryder Cup party at Jack Nicklaus' house.
01:21
As we all know,
01:22
♫ Ain't no party like a Nicklaus party
01:24
♫ Cause a Nicklaus party don't stop♫
01:26
Except, it did stop by 10 P.M.
01:29
And let's be honest,
01:31
this is going to have no effect on the actual Ryder Cup,
01:34
other than maybe Jack Nicklaus ice cream
01:37
being named Team U.S.A's official dessert.
01:39
And I'm buying Tiger Woods
01:41
who took back all of the headlines
01:43
with two words and one swing on a simulator.
01:46
Woods also attended that Ryder Cup party,
01:49
and took his own group of Nike athletes out to dinner.
01:52
What a guy.
01:53
It was his own restaurant,
01:55
but still, he's got a lot of overhead costs to cover.
01:59
Now onto more pressing matters.
02:01
This week in golf couples,
02:02
taking the Oscars way too seriously.
02:05
This is Golf Channel's Brandel Chamblee and Bailey Moser
02:08
getting all dressed up for a stay-at-home party.
02:12
Looking good guys.
02:13
Hey Brandel, who are you wearing?
02:16
And finally, we end with some random
02:19
but important questions to ponder.
02:22
Number one.
02:23
Will Donald Trump show up at Doral
02:25
for this week's Cadillac Championship?
02:30
Who are we kidding?
02:31
The better question is whether he'll land
02:33
Trump Force One on the gold course.
02:36
Number two.
02:37
How was the boy from Room
02:39
not nominated for an academy award?
02:45
Age bias, that's messed up,
02:47
#OscarsSoOld.
02:49
And number three.
02:51
How much would it cost to get Chris Rock
02:54
to host the golf Ryder's awards dinner?
03:00
I'm in for 20.
03:02
