From One World Trade Center, I'm Alex Meyers and this is
00:03
The Grind.
00:03
(upbeat music)
00:08
What's up guys here's what I'm buying and selling this week.
00:10
I'm buying Inbee Park and Justin Rose, who became
00:13
the first golfers to win Olympic gold medals
00:16
in more than 100 years.
00:18
And how about Inbee?
00:19
Hashtag Winbee.
00:21
She was up to her old tricks draining everything
00:24
on her way to a five shot romp in Rio.
00:27
Speaking of draining everything, I'm buying
00:29
Maria Verchenova, who shot an Olympic record
00:32
62 in the final round.
00:35
And now when you Google this Russian golfer,
00:37
you won't just see her popping up on lists
00:39
of hottest golfers
00:41
some of which, I may of had a hand in.
00:44
I'm buying Brad Dalke, who made it all the way
00:46
to the final of the U.S. Amateur before losing to
00:49
Curtis Luck.
00:50
I think Dalke's Oklahoma teammates are gonna be a lot more
00:54
impressed though with the fact he got a photo with
00:56
Holly Sonders.
00:57
I'm buying Si Woo Kim who became the only 21 year old
01:01
not named Tiger Woods in the past 30 years to win a PGA Tour
01:05
event by five shots.
01:07
I also wrote this post about him, in January.
01:12
I'm selling that final round group on the Web.com Tour of
01:15
Hack, Schenk and Yip.
01:19
That's just too much bad mojo there.
01:22
But if they need a fourth, Slice is available.
01:27
And, I'm selling Stacy Lewis' golfers tank.
01:31
Now Stacy took some ribbing for this and afterwards she said
01:35
she is never going to wear a sleeveless golf shirt again.
01:38
But she did shoot 63,
01:41
so Stacy
01:43
maybe you should,
01:45
no.
01:46
On second thought, don't do it.
01:49
Now onto more pressing issues, this week in Golfers Hanging
01:53
with Celebrities.
01:54
Check out Rory McIlroy in Las Vegas partying with
01:57
pop-star Niall Horan and UFC fighter Conor McGregor
02:00
after his epic victory over Nate Diaz.
02:03
Pretty cool, and way to stay hydrated Rory!
02:06
You can never be to careful when you visit a
02:08
desert-like climate.
02:09
And as always, we end with some random but important
02:13
Questions to Ponder.
02:14
Number one, who has a worse golfer's tan?
02:18
Stacy Lewis or me?
02:25
Let's call it a draw.
02:27
Number two, what's it like to go drinking with
02:30
Andrew Beef Johnston?
02:34
Well, my colleague Christian Yose found out
02:37
and it's as awesome as you'd imagine.
02:43
[Christian] Here we go.
02:49
Alright!
02:52
We'll use this glass.
02:53
And number three, is it a good idea
02:55
to let your parents visit you at your work office?
03:02
It was fun, but then my boss saw my mom take this photo.
03:07
And I don't think I'm ever gonna here the end of it.
03:13
Thanks for watching.
