Episode 89: Scottie Scheffler Finds the Putter & Tim Finally Shoots Under Par

March 12, 2024

Mike and Tim both fire 70's on the weekend in an epic podcast battle, could they be the hottest players on the planet not named Scottie Scheffler? We are kidding of course, but will go into the round a bit as Tim shot his first ever under par round on a championship golf course. Scottie Scheffler made a few putting changes, including both a new Taylormade mallet putter and not marking his golf ball with a line and as he displayed at Bay Hill, when he is making putts, he is really hard to beat. He fired a Sunday 66 to run away with the Arnold Palmer Invitational. We will also talk about a few other tournament tidbits and try to figure out what is wrong with Rory McIroy. After watching Full Swing 2 on Netflix this week, we will give our honest reviews of season 2 and why Mike is even more upset at Zach Johnson for one of his Ryder Cup picks after watching. Anthony Kim brought some fireworks to LIV Golf this week and will be playing again in Macau this coming week on the Asian Tour. Is signing Anthony Kim the best thing LIV has done for interest yet? The PGA Tour's flagship event, the Player's Championship is this week from TPC Sawgrass. Scottie Scheffler will be the favorite without question, but Pete Dye's course doesn't favor any one kind of player, so it is always an exciting test of golf. Former podcast guest Tom Hoge broke the course record last year and looks to build off that in 2024.
