Episode 102: U.S. Open Review From Scottsdale National

June 18, 2024

After an invitation to do the PXG Xperience from Dr. Bob Parsons, the podcast is live from Scottsdale National this week to talk about U.S. Open drama. Bryson DeChambeau fought a leaky driver and used a incredible short game to pull off a gritty victory at Pinehurst No. 2 as Rory McIlroy had a gut wrenching collapse missing two short putts on the last 4 holes to lose the U.S. Open trophy in his attempt to break his 10 year drought of major championships. We are discussing what is the larger story, Bryson winning or Rory's collapse? The Bryson Dechambeau story is a fascinating one as he has seemingly made a complete 180 in his career when it comes to popularity as he has reinvented himself and his game and the cherry on top was this victory in what has been a remarkable major season for Bryson. Rory McIlroy, who faces maybe more pressure than any player in the world to win a major, suffered a major setback by missing a couple very short putts in route to losing by a stroke. Where will Rory's career go from here? Will he ever get major number five? We are here at the beautiful Scottsdale National and did a full PXG club fitting, we will talk a little about it this week(and much more next week) and give our thoughts so far on the trip. All that and some professional golf superlatives to have some fun to finish the podcast on this week's episode. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
