From One World Trade Center, I'm Alex Myers
00:02
and this is The Grind,
00:04
Golf's top rated variety column,
00:07
that appears on GolfDigest.com,
00:10
on Mondays, on Tuesdays.
00:12
(funky jazz music)
00:21
Alright, here's what I'm buying and selling this week.
00:24
I'm buying Vaughn Taylor, who gave us a truly
00:28
heart-warming story on Valentine's Day.
00:30
Taylor began the week as an alternate at Pebble Beach,
00:33
but he wound up winning his first PGA Tour title
00:36
in more than a decade.
00:38
Even Clint Eastwood was thrilled.
00:40
Okay, maybe thrilled is a little strong.
00:43
I don't care how old Clint Eastwood is,
00:46
you do not mess with Clint Eastwood.
00:48
(gun shots firing)
00:50
I'm selling the anchoring ban.
00:52
Golf's new rule is supposed to make a big impact,
00:55
but Bernhard Langer moved his putter about this much
00:59
away from his chest and won his 26th Champions Tour title.
01:03
Crafty move, Bernhard.
01:04
I'm buying Justin Timberlake's impromptu performance
01:08
on a tee box during the Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
01:11
I mean, how awesome is this guy?
01:14
♫ I can't drink you away,
01:18
♫ I've tried Jack, I've tried Jim
01:21
♫ I've tried all of their friends
01:23
♫ I can't drink you away
01:27
♫ Woo hoo
01:29
♫ Rocks, I can't swim
01:30
♫ Out of this skin, I'm livin' in
01:35
(clapping and cheering)
01:36
(siren wailing)
01:38
Oh, sorry, my bad.
01:41
And I'm selling wearing matching outfits
01:43
at golf tournaments, like what Bubba Watson
01:46
and Mark Wahlberg did at Pebble Beach.
01:48
What is this, a father-son tournament?
01:50
Unless of course that's something
01:52
Justin Timberlake would like to do.
01:54
(golf swing swooshes)
01:56
In which case, I'm totally down.
01:58
Now onto more pressing matters:
02:01
This week in Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky
02:04
public displays of affection.
02:05
This week, Paulina wished Dustin
02:08
a Happy Valentine's Day on Instagram.
02:10
That was very thoughtful, Paulina.
02:14
DJ had a rough week out there.
02:16
And as always, we end with some random,
02:19
but important, questions to ponder.
02:22
Number one: Did I wear this cardigan in honor of
02:25
the PGA tour heading back to Riviera, aka Hogan's Alley?
02:33
You better believe I did.
02:34
Number two: Was Philomena the best movie choice
02:38
for Valentine's Day?
02:43
No, not exactly a rom-com.
02:46
And number three: with the 20th anniversary of
02:49
Happy Gilmore upon us, why wasn't there ever a sequel
02:53
to this classic?
02:58
Oh right, Caddyshack 2.
