    Hey associates and welcome to this week’s version of the Rogers Report! Between In Gee Chun’s win at Congressional, Xander Schauffele’s victory on the Vacationers, Pierceson Coody saying no to large LIV cash and instantly logging his first win on the Korn Ferry Tour and — this one’s for the actual followers — Dylan Menante defending his Northeast Novice title, it was a really stable week of golf. Let’s run by way of the way it went down on social media.

    My caddie expertise

    Okay, so this technically wasn’t documented on social media, however I might nonetheless like to debate it right here. After the primary spherical of the Northeast Novice in my hometown on Wednesday, I acquired a name from my good friend Davis Chatfield asking if I may loop for his pal in Spherical 2.

    Right here I’m in all my caddying glory

    I ended up caddying for Purdue golf’s Herman Sekne for 2 rounds. Of us, I do know so much about golf, however I haven’t spent a lot time on the bag. Fortunate for me, Sekne made it clear that he had low expectations for me — carry the golf equipment and convey good vibes. Even luckier for me, Sekne went 22 holes with out hitting right into a bunker so my job was fairly straightforward. I didn’t assist with studying putts, however I made certain to remain out of the way in which and to maintain my participant hydrated! In all seriousness, I had a blast but in addition was reminded that doing the complete factor on a regular basis could be an actual problem. Carrying an everyday bag is one factor, however I can’t think about hoofing it round with a Tour bag week in and week out.

    Okay people, sufficient about me. Properly, nearly. I do wish to present you all the best new headcovers I acquired from my buddies over at Tremont Sporting Co.

    How cool are these? I informed my good friend (and fellow Boston Faculty alum!) Christian Cavaliere that I really like all issues Rhode Island, ice cream, Boston Faculty and Tiger Woods and he made my headcover desires come true. My golf bag simply acquired 30 instances cooler.

    The best peak distinction in golf?

    Whereas we’re on the subject of the Northeast Novice, let’s take a second to understand this photograph.

    Tommy Morrison is a rising senior in highschool (!) and is sort of seven ft tall. Davis Chatfield simply completed his fifth 12 months at Notre Dame and is five-foot-five. The peak distinction right here is hanging, to say the least. It jogs my memory of the time I acquired an image with a 6’11” Villanova basketball participant. However whereas I wouldn’t have a lot of an opportunity in a recreation of one-on-one towards Daniel Ochefu, it’s tremendous cool that these guys have such totally different builds and are each capable of compete in our sport at a excessive degree. Chatfield completed the occasion tied for fifteenth and Morrison was T-40.

    The World No. 1’s birthday celebration

    World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler turned 26 on the Vacationers Championship final week, and the effective people at TPC River Highlands made certain to have fun the Masters champion in fashion.

    Scottie and Meredith Scheffler then went to Sally’s Apizza in New Haven to have fun the large 2-6.

    I regarded up this pizzeria on-line, the place it’s described as an “Iconic pizzeria recognized for its coal-fired, thin-crust pies, lengthy traces & fundamental, no-frills digs.” I hope the birthday boy and World No. 1 acquired to skip the lengthy traces. (Additionally: I’m very conscious that these pictures are a tad blurry. I screenshotted them instantly from the supply: Scottie Scheffler’s Instagram tales. When you’re disenchanted with their high quality, please file your complaints to Mr. Scheffler himself.)

    In Gee Chun being extraordinarily relatable

    Issues that aren’t relatable: In Gee Chun firing a first-round 64 on the KPMG Ladies’s PGA Championship and main by seven on Thursday and the truth that she has gained three totally different majors. Think about being 27 with three majors to your title? I’m 27 with three pairs of sneakers to mine.

    What’s relatable, nonetheless, is the conversations Chun had together with her caddie on Thursday.

    Pimples and kiwis! A gal after my very own coronary heart.

    Some Korda content material

    It’s all the time a deal with to study extra concerning the coolest sisters in golf, and I completely loved this recreation of “would you reasonably?” that Jess and Nelly Korda performed throughout a rain delay at Congressional.

    The banter between the 2 is so nice. It jogs my memory of the connection I’ve with my sister, aside from that neither of us are any good at golf.

    Tiger Woods out and about

    First up, we’ve Tiger at a junior occasion in Florida.

    Is that this the primary time we’ve seen Tiger’s naked leg because the accident? I consider so! I’ll allow you to do the glory of zooming in on it in the event you really feel so inclined, however I proceed to stay shocked at this man’s comeback, particularly after seeing this.

    Subsequent up we’ve Tiger at a soccer event (in all probability Sam’s) in San Diego. Males have been practising their golf swings in public because the Ice Age, however seeing Tiger do that is wild. No large deal, only a five-time Masters champion in a sleeveless shirt taking some swings on the sidelines! I really feel unhealthy saying that I might have 100% paid extra consideration to this than to the soccer recreation, nevertheless it’s the sincere reality.

    Vacationers Championship drama!

    Jason Kokrak hit a walk-off shot on Friday on the Vacationers and I’m not fairly certain what to make of it.

    I’m not the walk-off police. I additionally don’t often condone strolling off the course mid-round. However this was like, 99% of the way in which into the spherical, and it seems like he was making an attempt to get out of the way in which, so I sort of respect it — particularly since he was going to overlook the reduce anyway. I’d prefer to assume that Kokrak left his ball the place it was and headed straight to the clubhouse for a beer.

    Subsequent up we’ve this putt from Sahith Theegala‘s 72nd gap. If in case you have a weak abdomen, please proceed with warning.

    Is that this probably the most vicious lip out of all time? At first, I assumed it was positively entering into. Then I assumed it positively wasn’t. Then I used to be like, “wait, that’s in!” nevertheless it wasn’t! I’ll want a number of days of restoration, so I can solely think about how Sahith himself feels.

    Slime!

    I’d hate to finish this column discussing a missed putt, so let’s dive into the Nickelodeon Slime Cup shortly. I’ll be sincere, I didn’t watch it, nevertheless it did present some nice content material on social media.

    The photographs we didn’t know we wanted. I might’ve paid the large bucks (learn: perhaps $20) to be a fly on the wall for this occasion.
