From One World Trade Center, I'm Alex Myers,
00:02
and this is The Grind.
00:03
(hip hop music)
00:08
Welcome back, guys.
00:09
Here's what I'm buying and selling this week.
00:11
I'm buying Patrick Reed, who won The Barclays,
00:14
took the lead in the FedExCup,
00:16
and wrapped up a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup Team.
00:19
Hence, this patriotic headline I came up with,
00:23
Reed White and Blue.
00:25
Get it?
00:27
Thank you.
00:27
Thank you.
00:28
While I'm buying Reed's timing,
00:30
he also happens to be on the cover
00:31
of this month's Golf Digest.
00:33
I'm selling his touch, at least off the golf course.
00:37
Reed appeared at the New York Stock Exchange's
00:39
Closing Bell Ceremony on Tuesday and broke the gavel.
00:41
(cheering)
00:43
(crowd gasps)
00:44
At least it turned out to be a good omen for him.
00:46
Side note.
00:47
If you wanna know how badly Reed
00:49
wanted to make the U.S. Ryder Cup Team,
00:51
look no further than that tie.
00:54
Wow.
00:55
I'm buying Bethpage Black.
00:57
Great course.
00:59
Great atmosphere.
01:01
You think the Ryder Cup in 2024 is going to be any fun?
01:03
I'm selling Rickie Fowler's finishing skills.
01:06
In the span of eight ugly holes, Fowler let the Barclays
01:10
and an automatic spot on the Ryder team slip away.
01:14
And he's now a dreadful oh in four
01:17
when he has the 54-hole lead on the PGA tour.
01:20
Oh yeah, I'm also selling his hair choices.
01:24
First, that Olympic haircut.
01:26
And now, this playoff mustache?
01:29
His poor mother.
01:31
Now on to more pressing matters.
01:33
This week in Tenuous Golf Connections.
01:36
So it turns out pop star Demi Lovato
01:38
is dating UFC fighter slash celebrity golfer, Luke Rockhold.
01:44
Now you might remember Luke from
01:45
being on the cover of Golf Digest,
01:47
as well as from this instructional video
01:50
on how to deal with annoying golfers.
01:53
If U.S. Ryder Cup Captain, Davis Love III,
01:55
is looking for an intimidating assistant captain,
01:59
Rockhold might be a nice choice.
02:01
Then again, it look like Conrad Gregor
02:04
is already in Team Europe's corner.
02:06
And as always, we end with some random
02:09
but important questions to ponder.
02:11
Number one, how many beers were consumed
02:14
during the Barclays at Bethpage Black?
02:20
I don't know, but crowds got pretty
02:22
rowdy by Sunday afternoon.
02:24
TPC Scottsdale, you may have met your match.
02:27
Number two, should Rickie Fowler
02:29
consider texting Davis Love III?
02:35
It couldn't hurt
02:37
and neither could an invite to SB2K17.
02:41
And number three, should I consider
02:44
growing a playoff mustache?
02:49
The better question is probably,
02:51
am I capable of growing a playoff mustache?
02:55
Thanks for watching.
