Co-hosts John Hawkins and Jeff Rude pose a question about Rory McIlroy, who recently won a WGC title in China. What does it really mean? Plenty, says guest Mike Purkey, a Morning Read contributing writer. Purkey says McIlroy is “as motivated as he ever has been, and the reason for that motivation is Brooks Koepka.” Hawk & Rude also join Purkey in probing the staff shakeup at CBS and the hiring of Davis Love III. If the network wanted to attract a younger demographic to the PGA Tour and the arrival of gambling, as observers say, then Purkey contends that Phil Mickelson would have been the ideal choice.
