Episode 316: The wizards of Oz

Adam Scott completes Australia’s early-season hat trick on the PGA Tour and gives Oz a big boost for the Olympic Games in Tokyo

The Grill Room Golf Show Podcast with Bob and Jay

Adam Scott wins his first PGA Tour title in four years, but the real winner proved to be Riviera Country Club. The iconic southern California gem stands up to the latest generation of Tour stars, co-hosts Bob Bubka and Jay Randolph Jr. agree. Scott points to the Presidents Cup experience as a reason why three Australians – Cameron Scott at the Sony Open, Marc Leishman at the Farmers Insurance Open and now Scott at the Genesis Invitational – emerged as winners early in 2020. All of a sudden, Australia’s prospects for the Olympic Games in Tokyo this summer look very bright. Tiger Woods didn’t hold up so well at Riviera, fading over the weekend, and his health all of a sudden looks suspect again. Rory McIlroy didn't look so good, either, but for different reasons. The new world No. 1 blew a share of the 54-hole lead. In an unusual twist, this week’s WGC-Mexico Championship will feature a field that is not quite as top-heavy with stars as the recent field at Riviera. Bubka and Randolph explore some of the reasons.
