Positive coronavirus tests cull some of the key players from the herd at the Travelers Championship, upping the ante for the Tour’s prospects this season. Bob Bubka and Jay Randolph Jr. discuss the outlook on The Grill Room Golf Show
With a birdie barrage on the back nine of the final round at Harbour Town, Webb Simpson gives himself quite a Father’s Day present: the plaid jacket that signifies the PGA Tour’s RBC Heritage title. Co-hosts Bob Bubka and Jay Randolph Jr. discuss Simpson’s victory and where the PGA Tour stands entering its fourth week of the season restart. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, spectators will be banned again this week at the Travelers Championship. Randolph points out that, after some positive coronavirus tests early in the week led to some name players’ withdrawals at the Travelers, the Tour is facing a big test before fans are scheduled to return in three weeks at the Memorial Tournament. Alex Miceli, the founder of Morning Read, joins the show to discuss the situation and how the PGA Tour is handling it.
