From One World Trade Center, I'm Alex Meyers and this is
What's up guys here's what I'm buying and selling this week.
I'm buying Inbee Park and Justin Rose, who became
the first golfers to win Olympic gold medals
in more than 100 years.
And how about Inbee?
She was up to her old tricks draining everything
on her way to a five shot romp in Rio.
Speaking of draining everything, I'm buying
Maria Verchenova, who shot an Olympic record
62 in the final round.
And now when you Google this Russian golfer,
you won't just see her popping up on lists
of hottest golfers
some of which, I may of had a hand in.
I'm buying Brad Dalke, who made it all the way
to the final of the U.S. Amateur before losing to
I think Dalke's Oklahoma teammates are gonna be a lot more
impressed though with the fact he got a photo with
I'm buying Si Woo Kim who became the only 21 year old
not named Tiger Woods in the past 30 years to win a PGA Tour
event by five shots.
I also wrote this post about him, in January.
I'm selling that final round group on the Web.com Tour of
Hack, Schenk and Yip.
That's just too much bad mojo there.
But if they need a fourth, Slice is available.
And, I'm selling Stacy Lewis' golfers tank.
Now Stacy took some ribbing for this and afterwards she said
she is never going to wear a sleeveless golf shirt again.
But she did shoot 63,
maybe you should,
On second thought, don't do it.
Now onto more pressing issues, this week in Golfers Hanging
Check out Rory McIlroy in Las Vegas partying with
pop-star Niall Horan and UFC fighter Conor McGregor
after his epic victory over Nate Diaz.
Pretty cool, and way to stay hydrated Rory!
You can never be to careful when you visit a
And as always, we end with some random but important
Questions to Ponder.
Number one, who has a worse golfer's tan?
Stacy Lewis or me?
Let's call it a draw.
Number two, what's it like to go drinking with
Andrew Beef Johnston?
Well, my colleague Christian Yose found out
and it's as awesome as you'd imagine.
[Christian] Here we go.
We'll use this glass.
And number three, is it a good idea
to let your parents visit you at your work office?
It was fun, but then my boss saw my mom take this photo.
And I don't think I'm ever gonna here the end of it.
Thanks for watching.
