He's one of those guys that has a history of rubbing people the wrong way. Which seems to be a growing list of pros. I'll listen to it and comment again later.

Nothing really groundbreaking here.

Standard top pro comments regarding worlds and then random stuff.

the idea of 1 dollar from every pdga round going to the world's purse seems a bit self serving IMO......it might not seem like much to many but tell a TD he is going to be taxed 70-90 dollars for every event and try to explain that to players who suddenly get shafted of a players pack or payout or lunch etc.......70-90 out of a tourney budget is pretty significant to me

I've heard that Steve Rico has anger issues, Will Schusterick is cocky, Nikko is obnoxious & McBeth is humble/nice. The only one I know is for sure true is that Will is cocky.

If I was a "pro" I'd be hated. We see a fraction of who these people are. To judge them with little to no understanding of who they are is pointless and gossip magazine crap.

Good listen for sure.

I watched him ace that 445 foot hole in warmups. He turned around and totally missed it. He didn't actually believe it was in until he walked up the fairway and saw it himself. He thought everyone was just messin' with him.

Must be nice to ace a 445ft hole with basically a huge (borderline spike) hyzer.

What big sponsor can this sport attract? Man there has to be someone out there that sees the value what is the pdga doing in that respect? How about monster red bull Nike coca cola or any of their companies. Vibram is a start but also they cannot do it themselves.
