Episode 325: A point in Tim Finchem’s favor

Never underestimate the appeal of a living, breathing candidate for the World Golf Hall of Fame, 'Grill Room' guest Alex Miceli says

The Grill Room Golf Show Podcast with Bob and Jay

In The Grill Room co-host Bob Bubka, working solo as co-host Jay Randolph Jr. takes a break, turns to guest Alex Miceli for insight about Tim Finchem and his recent entry into the World Golf Hall of Fame. Two reasons, according to Miceli, Morning Read’s co-founder and publisher: Finchem is alive, which helps the induction ceremony, and he’s a key executive in the game. Could the Ryder Cup truly be played without fans? Not according to Miceli, who calls it a “ridiculous” option. “The Ryder Cup is a fan event,” Miceli said. “You legitimately cannot have a Ryder Cup without fans.” If fans will be barred from attending the Sept. 25-27 matches at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wis., because of coronavirus concerns, look for the Ryder Cup to move to 2021 and bump the Presidents Cup to 2022. It’s not an option without precedent. Remember what happened after 9/11? Also, former PGA Tour player Kelly Gibson shares his story about New Orleans and his hometown’s redemption after Hurricane Katrina and how another massive civic-rescue effort is underway.
