From One World Trade Center,
00:01
I'm Alex Myers and this is the Grind.
00:04
Golfs top rated variety column.
00:07
That appears on golfdigest.com, on Tuesdays.
00:12
(lively music)
00:22
What's up guys?
00:22
Here's what I'm buying and selling this week.
00:24
I'm buying Jason Day, who won the WGC match play
00:27
and moved back to number one in the world ranking.
00:30
Afterward, Day said he felt like he could hole anything
00:33
from around the greens.
00:34
Hmmm, wonder what size jacket he is?
00:37
I'm selling drones delivering snacks
00:39
to golfers on the course.
00:41
It sounds like a cool idea but this could mean
00:44
the end of beverage cart girls
00:47
and that's not good.
00:49
Not good for the economy, of course.
00:52
I'm buying Tony Finau, who won his first
00:54
PGA tour title in Puerto Rico.
00:56
Last week we talked about botched hi-five's
00:58
and bandanas hurting golf's coolness factor.
01:01
Well, Tony more than makes up for all that.
01:05
The dude can dunk.
01:06
Like, really dunk.
01:09
On a regulation size hoop.
01:12
That's 10 feet tall.
01:13
Off the vertical.
01:15
I'm selling dangerous flop shots.
01:18
And I'm not talking about the shots
01:19
off a tight lie with water behind the green.
01:21
I'm talking about standing two feet
01:23
away from a friend and hitting a flop-shot
01:25
over his head like these guys did.
01:27
(lively music)
01:31
Who would do that?
01:32
I wouldn't even let Jason Day try that on me.
01:34
And I'm buying Patrick Reed's belt buckle
01:37
which commemorates his famous shoosh
01:40
from the 2014 Ryder Cup.
01:42
But Patrick, if you're gonna wear this,
01:44
you're gonna have to do a little better
01:46
than getting dusted in the round of 16.
01:49
Especially if you're on my fantasy team.
01:51
Now on to more important matters.
01:53
This week in PGA Tour Pros, Living the Life.
01:56
Nearly a year ago, Keegan Bradley nearly
01:58
came to blows with Miguel Angel Jimenez
02:01
at the world match play.
02:02
This year, he spent the week
02:04
lounging in a tropical paradise with his fiance.
02:07
Advantage, this year.
02:09
And as always, we end with some random
02:12
but important, questions to ponder.
02:15
Number one,
02:22
Well, you've got Tony Finau, Dustin Johnson and, and, and.
02:30
Number two,
02:32
pshoo, pshoo, pshoo, pshoo, shooter.
02:38
(crowd cheers)
02:41
Shooter.
02:43
Duh and now it's official.
02:46
Shooter won Barstool's Sport's Tournament of Villains
02:49
and it wasn't even close.
02:50
He took on the likes of Ivan Drago, Jaws,
02:53
Hannibal Lecture and even the Joker.
02:56
What a legend.
02:58
And number three, who is a more
02:59
unstoppable force in Augusta next week?
03:03
Jason Day on the golf course
03:05
or me on the ping pong table,
03:07
in the Golf Digest House.
03:11
Gotta go with myself here.
03:14
This is what happened last year.
03:15
(lively music)
03:27
Jaime Diaz is still having nightmares about that.
03:30
