Bryson and Brooks Rivalry
The rivalry between Brooks and Bryson has been there for a while, it’s nothing new. I remember something between them in 2019 in one of the playoff events. The two of them are getting a lot of coverage out of it but there are 150 golfers and 150 caddies out there every week. If you were in an office building with that amount of people there would probably be some people you like and some people you don’t like and that’s just the way it is. Just because they’re professional golfers there’s a lot made about it.

It would be interesting to see if they’re paired together this week, that would be pretty cool.

Big Phil Mickelson
What Phil did at the PGA was unreal for golf. I think Phil’s win at the PGA was up there with Tiger’s win at Augusta in 2019.
At 51 years of age, nobody – I think – could have done that but Phil.
He drove the ball unbelievably well at Kiawah, especially down the stretch so if he continues to drive the ball well, with the best short game in the world no matter where he puts himself he can get himself up and down.
We’ve all got a strength in our game and we’ve all got a weak point and if your weak point gets to a level where it’s pretty good that week, you’ll have a chance of winning a tournament. That’s the way top-level golf is. His driving at Kiawah was brilliant and that’s what gave him the chance to win.
