    Remember that time Tiger Woods beat Stephen Ames 9 and 8? (3/27)

    Remember that time Tiger Woods beat Stephen Ames 9 and 8? (3/27)

    Tiger Woods is good at golf. Perhaps the year where he was best at golf was 2006. In that season Big Cat won 8 of his 14 tournaments entered, including 2 majors. What many might remember though is his thrashing of Stephen Ames at the 2006 WGC Match Play Championship. Our First Cut crew relieves the epic 9 hole match that was the biggest beat-down in the history of the event. Also on the docket we talk about the actual winner, Geoff Ogilvy (25:30). We also our one out for Jim Furyk, Ernie Els and every other great player who fell victim to the Tiger Era.

    Where does golf go from here? (3/16)

    Where does golf go from here? (3/16)

    Wow, what a week it’s been! Last Monday we were looking at a perfectly normal week in the world of golf, today we’re wondering when the professional game will return. Our First Cut crew is back together via the power of the internet to break it all down. Our analysts ponder when they think pro golf will return to the masses (3:45). In non-coronavirus news, the PGL lost the support of two more elite players. Brooks Koepka and Jon Rahm have joined Rory McIlroy by disavowing the possibility of joining the upstart Premier Golf League. Could this be the final blow to the proposed league (14:06)? Speaking of Rory, we talk about how McIlroy has emerged as the PGA Tour’s “shadow commissioner" (18:37). We also get social to see how pro golfers have gotten along this weekend without any tournaments for the foreseeable future (24:00). Finally we wrap by putting on our commissioner caps and diving into where we want golf to go after this unprecedented time (29:42).

I’d like to see a flashback to the big money duel between Tiger and Phil, and how the tour could benefit off of more showdowns.
