[Alex] From One World Trade Center,
00:01
I'm Alex Myers, and this is The Grind.
00:08
What's up guys? As you can see, we've got a new set up.
00:10
And I'm not wearing a sweater for the first time.
00:12
We're making history. Anyway,
00:15
here's what I'm buying and selling this week.
00:17
I'm buying Jordan Spieth,
00:18
who ended the most over-hyped slump in PGA tour history.
00:23
He didn't win in nine events!
00:25
Hey, Jordan, are you ready for the US Open?
00:30
That's what we thought.
00:31
(bell dings)
00:32
Speaking of being US Open ready,
00:34
I was fortunate enough to play winged foot
00:35
for the first time, and I shot seventy-seven
00:38
from the black tees.
00:40
I can take you through the whole card if you want.
00:42
I'm selling having to get stitches
00:45
from going to a golf tournament.
00:46
That's what happened to Elisa Butler at Colonial.
00:48
But, on the bright side, Tony Finau showed up
00:52
at her house the next day with chocolates and flowers.
00:55
What a guy.
00:57
I'm buying Ariya Jutana ...
00:59
Jutana ... Jutanag ...
01:02
Jutanugarn ... Jutanugarn!
01:04
(crowd cheering) Jutanugarn.
01:06
What ... Whatever. I'm buying her!
01:07
She's twenty years old, and she won
01:09
for the third straight week on the LPGA tour.
01:11
We might have been a bit quick
01:12
in handing the next decade of women's golf to Lydia KO.
01:15
[Loud Voice] What!
01:17
I'm selling Muirfield ... Again.
01:19
A high-profile member said they voted
01:21
against allowing women members to prove a point
01:24
because they didn't like the media telling them what to do.
01:27
Wow, guys! You really showed us!
01:30
Have fun not hosting the British Open anymore.
01:33
And, I'm buying Rocco Mediate,
01:35
who finally won that elusive first major
01:38
at the Senior PGA Championship.
01:40
Congrats, Rocco, you'll now be known
01:42
for more than being that guy who lost
01:44
to Tiger Woods in the 2008 US Open.
01:46
Mm ... Nah, that's what you're going to be known for.
01:51
Now, onto more important matters.
01:53
This week in bikini golf, meet Savannah,
01:55
a Cactus Tour winner, who took her clubs
01:59
to the beach this Memorial Day weekend.
02:00
And before all the environmental nuts go crazy,
02:02
know that Savannah was using biodegradable golf balls.
02:06
Nicely done, and great balance!
02:09
And as always, we end with some random,
02:12
but important questions to ponder.
02:14
Number one, who will win the NBA finals?
02:17
Lebron James, or Stephan Curry?
02:21
(relaxed music)
02:25
It's tough to pick against anybody
02:27
who's been on the cover of Golf Digest.
02:29
Number two, if you could choose just one dessert
02:33
to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?
02:36
(relaxed music)
02:39
I'd have to go with the Frosty.
02:41
Side note, I discovered that in Woodbury, New York,
02:44
there's a Wendy's right next to a Chili's.
02:46
What a magical place!
02:49
Boy, did I spoil my wife that day.
02:52
And number three, what's the best round of golf
02:55
I've played this year?
02:57
(relaxed music)
03:00
Oh, right. Did I mention I shot seventy-seven
03:02
at Winged Foot? (bell chimes)
03:05
Thanks for watching, and for more of The Grind

03:10
See you next week.
