From One World Trade Center, I'm Alex Myers
00:02
and this is The Grind, golf's top rated variety column
00:07
that appears on GolfDigest.com
00:10
on Tuesdays.

00:21
What's up, guys?
00:22
Here's what I'm buying and selling this week.
00:24
I'm buying Brian Stuard, who won for the first time
00:27
on the PGA Tour at the Zurich Classic,
00:29
despite the fact that he only averaged
00:31
hitting it 265 yards off the tee.
00:34
On behalf of short hitters everywhere,
00:36
thanks, Brian.
00:38
I'm selling Tiger Woods' off course style.
00:42
On the bright side, the 14 time major champ's jeans
00:46
are much improved.
00:47
However, everything else, well
00:52
I'm buying John Daly, who won a $150,000 bet
00:56
from his friend Fuzzy Zoeller just for turning 50.
01:00
Wait, how is this a bet?
01:02
What would Fuzzy have gotten if John Daly died?
01:06
Anyways, I'm also buying JD's music,
01:09
as in, I actually bought one of his songs on iTunes.
01:13
Don't judge me.
01:14
Hit It Hard is actually a pretty decent song.
01:18
♫ Long, man, long
01:20
♫ Til it's gone, man, gone
01:23
♫ Keep taking chances, living large
01:25
♫ I hit it, hit it, hit it hard
01:28
It's a good song.
01:30
I mean, it's pretty good.
01:33
And speaking of music, I'm also buying Peg Parnevik.
01:36
The 20-year-old daughter of Jesper Parnevik
01:39
has a hit single and a brand new music video.
01:42
Here's a sample.
01:44
♫ Breaking, falling, chasing, crawling
01:46
♫ It's always just the same
01:48
♫ 'Cause I'm not, I'm not gonna lose my head
01:52
♫ Standing on my own two feet again
01:55
♫ I'm not gonna lose my mind
01:58
♫ I won't let you walk this time
02:00
♫ Not gonna lose my head
02:03
♫ Never let you in my bed
02:05
I have no clue what she's singing about
02:08
or what is going on in that video, but it's pretty catchy.
02:12
Onto more pressing issues,
02:15
this week in Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky
02:17
public displays of affection.
02:19
Another week off for DJ, led to more fun in the sun
02:22
for these two lovebirds.
02:24
This week, they showed off their dance moves on a boat.
02:27
And then there was this photo from Paulina.
02:30
Dustin was supposed to return to work this week
02:33
at the Wells Fargo Championship, but he withdrew on Tuesday.
02:37
Not that we blame him.
02:39
And as always, we end with some random
02:41
but important questions to ponder.
02:44
Number one, when is John Daly's next album gonna come out?
02:52
I don't know, but I can't wait.
02:54
♫ I hit it, hit it, hit it hard
02:57
Number two, is 80-year-old Gary Player really
03:01
in that good of shape?
03:05
Well, he came in the office last week
03:08
and embarrassed me in this push-up contest.
03:11
So yes, he is.
03:14
And number three, what's it like to actually hold
03:18
the US Open trophy?
03:21
(funky techno music)
03:32
Feels pretty good.
03:35
Can I keep this?
03:37
