The Grind: Shooter McGavin's legend lives on & a cart girl dilemma
Alex Myers discusses a beverage cart girl dilemma, the legend of Shooter McGavin, Patrick Reed's awesome belt buckle, and ping-pong at the Masters.

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