From One World Trade Center, I'm Alex Myers
00:02
and this is The Grind.
00:04
(upbeat hip hop music)
00:08
What's up, guys?
00:09
Back from the PGA Championship.
00:10
Here's what I'm Buying and Selling this week.
00:12
(club whooshes)
00:12
I'm buying Jimmy Walker, who held off
00:14
world number one, Jason Day
00:16
to claim his first major.
00:18
Jimmy is also the first known astrophotographer
00:21
to win a major championship.
00:23
Just a guess, but this was a bigger thrill
00:26
than winning any of those NASA Picture of the Day awards.
00:29
(club whooshes)
00:30
I'm selling all the golf fans
00:31
who got duped into thinking Jason Day
00:33
won the PGA Championship
00:35
when CBS replayed last year's tournament
00:37
during a rain delay.
00:38
First of all,
00:39
it was a Saturday.
00:41
Second of all,
00:42
Wisconsin looks nothing like New Jersey.
00:45
Man, imagine how much you could have made
00:47
if you bet on Y.E. Yang or Tiger Woods
00:49
against these people if they showed 2009 instead.
00:52
(sighs)
00:53
(club whooshes)
00:54
Speaking of absurd bets involving Tiger Woods,
00:57
I'm selling his odds to win the 2017 Masters.
01:01
Tiger is listed at 66 to one,
01:03
(person screeches)
01:03
which is the same odds given to Branden Grace
01:06
and Brooks Koepka,
01:07
who are coming off tee fours
01:09
at the PGA Championship.
01:10
Woods's odds are better
01:12
than those for Jimmy Walker,
01:14
who is coming off a win at the PGA Championship.
01:17
Meanwhile, all Woods is coming off of
01:19
is probably another week of sitting on the couch.
01:22
(club whooshes)
01:22
(crying)
01:23
And I'm buying hard working, on course TV reporters.
01:28
First, there was Rich Beem,
01:29
who made the cut at a Major for the first time
01:31
in four years.
01:33
On Sunday morning, Beem shot 71
01:35
at Baltusrol.
01:36
Then spent Sunday afternoon following the final pair
01:39
as an analyst for Sky Sports.
01:41
And then, there's Peter Kostis,
01:43
a man who's known for his love
01:45
of the Konica Minolta BizHub SwingVision camera.
01:49
Well,
01:50
it appears that he loves all of that equipment
01:54
around the golf course.
01:54
(club whooshes)
01:55
Now onto more important matters.
01:57
This week in Awesome Golf Apparel.
02:00
Okay, so this is definitely the best Tiger t-shirt
02:03
I've ever seen.
02:04
(club whooshes)
02:05
I would have asked this guy where he got it from,
02:06
but,
02:08
I must admit I was a little intimidated by him.
02:10
I don't want to hear about the fact
02:11
that he was only drinking a Coors Light.
02:14
This dude looked pretty tough.
02:15
And as always,
02:17
we end with some random, but important,
02:19
Questions to Ponder.
02:20
(club whooshes)
02:21
Number one:
02:22
who were the four players Tiger Woods suggested
02:25
as Ryder Cup captain's picks?
02:28
(hip hop music)
02:29
I don't know.
02:31
But telling captain Davis Love
02:33
who you think he should pick was pretty bold.
02:37
Making yourself one of those four picks
02:40
would be even bolder.
02:42
Number two:
02:43
Will the victory butt slap
02:45
become a tradition at the PGA Championship?
02:48
(hip hop music)
02:50
First Jason Dufner to Amanda in 2013,
02:53
and now, Jimmy Walker to Erin in 2016.
02:56
Hey, just pointing out a trend here.
02:59
And number three:
03:01
Does Jordan Spieth need to file a restraining order
03:04
against my boss?
03:05
(hip hop music)
03:08
Just saying.
03:10
Be careful out there, Jordan.
03:12
Thanks for watching.
03:13
