Who’s playing or watching the 2nd most tory and republican sport of all this year?
Full Swing is out on Netflix- it’s a bit sanitised and American but quite watchable. Really enjoyed how boring Matt Fitzpatrick is. Good lad. The Joel Dahmen episode is the only must-watch I reckon.
Was glad to see Kurt whatsit win last week.
Masters soon, really hope we get a showdown between at least 2 of Rory, Rahmbo and Stiffler.
Players has just started, Rorys had a stinker 1st round. Theegala to win please.
Personally - my index is down to 11.5. Aims for this year are to break 80 and get close to single figures.we’ll see. Also want to play in Scotland, gonna try and get to St Andrews but not really that bothered about the old course.
Pretty much exactly this. Bit of a shame that Smith and some of the more high-profile non Ryder players (Ancer, Niemann) went but otherwise it really is a rough bunch. An uninspiring mix of those who were about to hit the Seniors tour, journeymen Americans, major winners wth massive question marks over their futures for various reasons and randoms making up the numbers.
Hope it gives the USPGA a bit of a kick up the bum and then the Saudis just pull the money plug for some reason.
I mean we know the Saudi’s can just dump billions in but it’s not a sustainable business model. As far as I know, no TV deals have been signed, as @harru mentioned it’s tough to find even here in the states (think youtube TV did one event but didn’t tune in). They made zero dollars last year.
The contracts seem short, average of 2-3 years I believe, with some bigger names maybe 5? I bet some players after those contracts are up have buyer’s remorse, made a substantial amount of money for their families, and return to the PGA tour.
That being said Jay Monahan got a little too big for his britches and all of a sudden they had a real problem on their hands and had to adjust on the fly. It’s massive for the PGA tour Rory is a global ambassador now.
The LIV model just doesn’t interest me at all. No cuts, 54 holes, team play.
