Keep in mind this scene from the unique Prime Gun the place the officer from the tower is chewing-out Viper for Maverick’s fly-by? Neglect the subtext that could possibly be drawn from his repeated demand for “SOME BUTTS!” which inserts properly into a preferred concept of what many imagine the film is admittedly about.* Anyway, the a part of that scene that applies right here is when Viper says, “nicely that’ll nearly cowl the fly-by’s” as if to say, “we’re placing that previously.” 

And that is what I am doing with my current picks. It is like they by no means occurred which is becoming as a result of they could as nicely have by no means occurred.   

TWEET OF THE WEEK


This image additionally conveniently serves as a metaphor for me making an attempt to make golf picks recently.

GOLF ANALYSIS

We head to Muirfield Village this week so Jack can get some high quality airtime to hawk his ice cream and whine about cancel tradition. Fortuitously, he additionally hosts among the finest occasions of the season with a stable roster of champions so we’ll reduce him some slack.

As it’s possible you’ll recall, Jon Rahm was operating away with this factor final yr when he was unceremoniously excused from the event after testing optimistic for COVID. And if there’s one factor we now about Spaniards, it is that they always remember (see: Inigo Montoya). So Rahm is the choose based mostly on sheer vengeance alone.

Jordan Spieth appears to have rediscovered his recreation so we’ll throw him within the second spot, narrowly edging Xander Schauffele who we do not actually belief anymore (sure it is true). The subsequent three are the ball-striking model of Rush and Cream with Cameron Younger within the Neil Peart/Ginger Baker function. Joaquin Niemann is Geddy Lee as if you happen to even needed to ask.

We’ve not heard a lot from Patrick Reed in awhile which has been nice however the recreation actually is healthier when he is an element. I assume. 

And at last we’ll roll the cube on two guys who had been on prime of the golf world as not too long ago as 2016 earlier than slowly receding into the pack over the past 5 years. There was a time not so way back when Jason Day and Rickie Fowler had been mentioned as half of a “Massive 4” that additionally included Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy. It was ridiculous looking back as a result of, on the time, that they had mixed for one main win however they’re each likeable so the golf world was like “fuck it . . . why not?” If one in all them goes to get Jim Nantz all sentimental, this can be a place it may occur. Simply so long as he does not begin droning-on about Christian pickle ball retreats once more.

                                    HISTORICAL PERFORMANCE CHART

You are not going to discover a extra instructive historic efficiency chart than this one. The one disgrace is that I can not match ten yr’s price of outcomes on right here so you’ll be able to admire the previous success of men like Matt Kuchar, Hideki Matsuyama and David Lingmerth. (The WDAY is for the 2020 Workday Charity Open which was held on the identical course the week earlier than The Memorial as some type of COVID associated concept that I am certain appeared like a good suggestion on the time).

Footnote

* At present was the primary time I seen that, as he storms-out, the officer collides with a man in what may greatest be described as a not so imposing sailor outfit and ends-up with espresso throughout his chest. I’ll allow you to draw your personal conclusions.  

** This week’s historic efficiency chart title is there to see if you happen to’re paying consideration.
