PGA Tour, TGR Reside Occasions
Hey everybody and welcome to this week’s version of the Rogers Report. It was a pleasant two-week break from all of it, however I’m feeling relieved that the PGA Tour is formally again on Thursday. Golf makes up for (give or take) 90 % of my persona, and with out it I’ve little or no to speak about.
Sufficient of the small speak. Let’s get to it.
Ian Poulter vs. Billy Horschel?
The week began off sturdy when PGA Tour gamers and LIV golfers competed collectively on the BMW PGA Championship final week, and folk, this was the perfect actuality tv round. Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy and Billy Horschel all gave their ideas on the matter, however to me the entire thing jogged my memory of when two buddies in your pal group break up after which they must go to the identical birthday celebration. Everybody is aware of, everybody’s whispering about it and ready for the second of reality: after they must face one another.
And we lastly received a standoff (or golf’s model of it, which is far more tame) between Poulter and Horschel final Wednesday.
What I’d give to have been inside earshot of this dialog! Each Horschel and Poulter stated their dialog wasn’t something severe, however the physique language sort of begs to vary. Poulter went on so as to add his personal audio to the video, which you’ll be able to take a look at under.
We right here on the Rogers Report love a social media reparation. Effectively executed, guys. And whereas we’re on the subject of Horschel, he dealt with getting mistaken for McIlroy very properly on the BMW PGA.
Brooks Koepka’s Italian trip
Between LIV’s Boston and Chicago occasions, Brooks and Chase Koepka, Jena Sims and crew headed to Italy for a cruise. They made stops in Portofino, Portoferraio and Capri. In the event you’re like me and haven’t traveled to those areas, fear not as a result of I lived vicariously by their journey and now you may too.
Jorts are again!
There’s nothing higher than a celebration with a theme, which the Koepka-Sims crew completely crushed final week. It began out with promenade evening. Say what you need concerning the fits, however this appeared actually enjoyable.
I additionally consider this is likely one of the first instances we’ve seen some off-course Chase and Brooks Koepka content material, which didn’t disappoint.
These two love to bounce! I’d be mendacity if I stated I knew Chase had this in him.
One other one of many themed events thrown on the boat was outer house evening, which Brooks additionally took very severely. I don’t see myself occurring a cruise any time quickly (learn: ever), but when I had been, I’d need it to be identical to this one.
The professionals soak up Texas vs. Alabama
Golf’s first couple (Scottie and Meredith Scheffler) cheered on the Longhorns over the weekend and the Masters champion received fairly the shock throughout his time on School GameDay.
In reality, a whole lot of Texas golf alums had been in Austin over the weekend.
Speak about a squad. And though he’s not a Texas alum (maybe an honorary one? His spouse, Angela Atkins, performed golf at UT and her father, Marty Atkins, was an All-American quarterback there), Sergio Garcia was in attendance on Saturday after firing a 76 in Spherical 1 of the BMW PGA Championship roughly 4,730 miles away.
The DP World Tour would possibly now take disciplinary motion towards Garcia, who failed to offer a purpose for his WD. Sadly, I don’t assume school soccer could be accepted as an excuse. Let this be a lesson for all my readers: If you will play hooky, you want to hold your social footprint clear till you come to work. It’s a rookie mistake and the precise plot line of dozens of episodes of Disney Channel exhibits.
Finau shoots hoops with Drake
Tony Finau and a handful of different celebrities took their abilities to Oregon for an occasion at Nike’s headquarters final week and it appeared unimaginable. And to hang around with Drake looks like the final word bonus for a man like Finau who likes to rap in his automobile.
Shane Lowry’s celebrations
We noticed it after the 2019 Open Championship, and we noticed it once more over the weekend. Shane Lowry likes to rejoice his victories (as he ought to). And fortunate for us, he likes to share these celebrations on-line. Earlier than we get into the celebrations that occurred off the course, let’s take a second to understand this second between Lowry and McIlroy.
Rory says, “I’m actually joyful for you,” to which Shane replies, “you’ve received sufficient anyway.” Good guys alert! It seems as if Rory even caught round for a few of the celebrations.
I like the truth that Lowry received in on a viral TikTok development that’s recording your self earlier than your first and final drinks of the evening, and I actually love the truth that Rory is charging his Whoop on the afterparty within the above picture. Celebrating or not, this man is dedicated to getting these restoration numbers!
What ensued the following morning is one thing we are able to all relate to, though most of us have by no means received an expert golf event.
I hope by the point this text comes out Shane Lowry is again to feeling one hundred pc.
The professionals in NYC
Tiger, Joe LaCava, Scottie Scheffler and Sam Burns are in New York this week for the Nexus Cup at Liberty Nationwide. (However Claire! Liberty Nationwide is in Jersey Metropolis! I do know, however they’re hanging out in NYC, as proven by this picture of Scottie Scheffler grabbing some Pizza within the pouring rain.)
Pay attention, I’m glad we received this picture. I’m glad Scheffler is sharing an inside have a look at his life on social media. I do know beggars can’t be choosers and that I shouldn’t inform the World No. 1 what to do, however I’d love for the textual content and site tag to not be protecting his face going ahead. It simply doesn’t look as clear as it could, say, if that had been all on the underside of the display.
Transferring on. I’ve thought lots about what my picture with Tiger Woods would (God prepared, will) appear like, and I believe I’d be fairly joyful if my hair appeared nearly as good as Jimmy Fallon’s does right here.
Tiger even hit some balls on the vary on Tuesday morning and though I’m nowhere close to certified to be commenting on the state of his swing, I’d say issues look fairly good!
This week in Tyrrell Hatton content material
I’m unsure why I don’t embody Tyrrell Hatton on this column extra usually. He’s a content material machine. Golfers aren’t at all times relatable, however Hatton undoubtedly was right here.
Each on-course video of this man is absolute gold.
