Welcome back, guys.
Here's what I'm buying and selling this week.
I'm buying Patrick Reed, who won The Barclays,
took the lead in the FedExCup,
and wrapped up a spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup Team.
Hence, this patriotic headline I came up with,
Reed White and Blue.
While I'm buying Reed's timing,
he also happens to be on the cover
of this month's Golf Digest.
I'm selling his touch, at least off the golf course.
Reed appeared at the New York Stock Exchange's
Closing Bell Ceremony on Tuesday and broke the gavel.
At least it turned out to be a good omen for him.
If you wanna know how badly Reed
wanted to make the U.S. Ryder Cup Team,
look no further than that tie.
I'm buying Bethpage Black.
You think the Ryder Cup in 2024 is going to be any fun?
I'm selling Rickie Fowler's finishing skills.
In the span of eight ugly holes, Fowler let the Barclays
and an automatic spot on the Ryder team slip away.
And he's now a dreadful oh in four
when he has the 54-hole lead on the PGA tour.
Oh yeah, I'm also selling his hair choices.
First, that Olympic haircut.
And now, this playoff mustache?
His poor mother.
Now on to more pressing matters.
This week in Tenuous Golf Connections.
So it turns out pop star Demi Lovato
is dating UFC fighter slash celebrity golfer, Luke Rockhold.
Now you might remember Luke from
being on the cover of Golf Digest,
as well as from this instructional video
on how to deal with annoying golfers.
If U.S. Ryder Cup Captain, Davis Love III,
is looking for an intimidating assistant captain,
Rockhold might be a nice choice.
Then again, it look like Conrad Gregor
is already in Team Europe's corner.
And as always, we end with some random
but important questions to ponder.
Number one, how many beers were consumed
during the Barclays at Bethpage Black?
I don't know, but crowds got pretty
rowdy by Sunday afternoon.
TPC Scottsdale, you may have met your match.
Number two, should Rickie Fowler
consider texting Davis Love III?
It couldn't hurt
and neither could an invite to SB2K17.
And number three, should I consider
growing a playoff mustache?
The better question is probably,
am I capable of growing a playoff mustache?
Thanks for watching.
