From One World Trade Center,
00:01
I'm Alex Myers and this is The Grind.
00:03
(modern electronic music)
00:08
What's up guys?
00:09
I'm in a great mood this week
00:10
because I'm going on my yearly golf trip.
00:13
But more on that later.
00:14
First, here's what I'm buying and selling.
00:17
I'm buying Billy Hurley,
00:18
who won his first PGA Tour event in our nation's capital.
00:22
Just a few years removed from defending our nation
00:24
as a member of the U.S. Navy.
00:26
What a story.
00:28
And after, the 607th ranked player in the world
00:31
received his trophy
00:33
from the 582nd ranked player in the world.
00:37
Speaking of, I'm buying Tiger Woods as a TV analyst.
00:41
Tiger spent an extended time in the booth on Sunday
00:45
providing great commentary and some fun reminiscing.
00:48
Look! He even wore Sunday red!
00:51
But I'm selling Tiger as a Tiger analyst.
00:55
Once again he provided little detail about his recovery.
00:58
I'm sorry, but I'm getting impatient
01:00
with hearing Tiger talk about how patient he's been.
01:04
Come on, Tiger. Give us something.
01:06
We miss you!
01:07
I'm buying John Rahm
01:09
who finished T3 in his pro debut
01:11
at the Quicken Loans National
01:13
and took home a check for 400,000 dollars.
01:16
(cash register opening) Not a bad summer job
01:17
for a 21 year old.
01:19
And I'm selling getting a speeding ticket
01:21
on your way to the golf course.
01:23
That's what happened to me last week
01:24
as I drove to Golf Digest's
01:26
inaugural Train Wreck tournament,
01:28
and not surprisingly I didn't recover.
01:31
Quiet, please.
01:32
Mentally weak golfer on the tee.
01:34
But seriously, congratulations to Steve Hennessy
01:37
and Mike Johnson for winning the event
01:39
at Pound Ridge Golf Club.
01:40
Steve just happened to shoot a career low round
01:44
for a net 64.
01:48
With that kind of sandbagging
01:49
he would fit right in on my golf trip.
01:52
Now onto more important matters,
01:54
this week in models who play golf.
01:56
Here's Hayden Sylte showing off her golfer's tan.
01:59
Not bad, Hayden, but I think I've still got you beat.
02:02
And unfortunately, it's really hurt my career
02:05
as a sandals model.
02:07
And as always, we end with some random
02:09
but important questions to ponder.
02:12
Number one, who will win the 23rd annual
02:15
HGGA championship this week in Ocean City, Maryland.
02:22
Please, please, let it be me.
02:25
It's been five years since I won golf's other green jacket.
02:29
It's seems like an eternity.
02:31
Just look at that picture.
02:32
I was actually skinny back then.
02:34
Number two, would Tiger Woods ever consider
02:37
coming on my annual buddies trip?
02:41
Seriously, Tiger, you should think about it.
02:43
Should be a great move for you.
02:45
A nice little stepping stone back to the PGA tour,
02:48
get your feet wet with a little competition,
02:50
we could give you a couple shots.
02:52
[Voiceover] What? It's in Ocean City, Maryland
02:53
so you can sail your yacht right there.
02:56
And it doesn't start till Thursday,
02:58
so let me know.
02:59
And number three, would Billy Hurley consider
03:02
becoming my mental coach?
03:06
Look, I need to get tougher on the golf course,
03:09
and who better to learn from
03:11
than someone who has the Chairman
03:12
of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on speed-dial.
03:15
So, Billy, what do you say?
03:17
Do you wanna come on our buddies trip?
03:20
Tiger might be there.
03:21
Thanks for watching.
03:22
