On this episode of Pull Hook Golf, the lyrics from AJR's hit song "100 Bad Days" are ringing true for Bobby as he has suffered six missed starts with Troy to begin the year. However, this tough streak has led to a lot of good stories that he and Matt share on the show. The end of Bobby's streak seems inevitable as the Valspar Championship is coming up this week.
After recapping the Players Championship and discussing the upcoming Valspar Championship, the hosts move on to "Story Time with Matt & Bobby." Bobby shares his experience caddying for Troy Merritt at the Players Championship, where they missed the cut by one shot, and updates the audience on his new practice regimen. Meanwhile, Matt recounts his honeymoon in Tulum, Mexico, where they went cliff diving, swam with turtles in the cenotes and experienced chef tasting menus. He also shares his experience with the Bufo Alvarius, a toad that secretes a powerful psychedelic substance.
The hosts then dive into a Players Championship recap and share their penny bets before previewing the upcoming Valspar Championship. Bobby offers his analysis on the caddies and the field, and both hosts make their penny bets. They also discuss the USGA's proposed plans to roll back the golf ball by 20 yards for the longest hitters, which would go into effect in 2026, and offer their takes on the issue.
Finally, the hosts wrap up with a discussion of the LIV Golf Tucson tournament and share their picks for the individual winner and worst team. They also talk about the issues the organizers are facing in trademarking the "LIV" name due to the existence of the LIV nightclub in Miami.
Overall, this episode of Pull Hook Golf is a fun and informative mix of golf talk, personal stories, and banter that will keep listeners engaged from start to finish.
