Co-hosts John Hawkins and Mike Purkey pile it on with a month’s worth of reflections, a mere five weeks before the 2021 Masters. Collin Morikawa, who at age 24 added the PGA Tour's WGC Workday title to his 2020 PGA Championship victory, “might be the player that we thought Xander Schauffele was going to be,” Purkey said. “This guy is composed, concise and pretty damn good. His iron shots never seem to leave the flag,” Hawkins said in agreement. Morikawa is just one reason why the U.S. Ryder Cup team is shaping up for a very different look in the post-Tiger Woods/Phil Mickelson era. The co-hosts also discuss the recent play of Jordan Spieth, Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson, and they look at the prospects for an injured Tiger Woods.
