Iss. 25 | ALL ABOARD! Hype Train 2021 Has Arrived
ALL ABOARD—THE 2021 HYPE TRAIN!
2020. What a worm-burner of a year.
But like all good golfers, you've got to have a short memory so we're back with our conductor hat on from when we really got into trains in the 2nd grade, a frosted mug of adult beverage in hand, running down everything we're most hyped for in 2021!
The action kicks off this week at Kapalua in Hawaii with a surprisingly stacked crew—the most disappointed man in golf right now... JT who has to work twice as hard to make it back to this state of mind...
January 10th and 17th
TIGER ON A SUNDAY (LIKE, THIS SUNDAY)
HBO's two-part documentary on the GOAT begins this Sunday. Hype levels are on par with The Last Dance.
Early reports indicate that Tiger was uninvolved in the project so instead of shining one of those fancy IG influencer ring lights on Eldrick... it may be shining a harsh AF spotlight instead as he gets runs over by the proverbial Escalade..
We'll just leave these palate cleansing links right here for ya when it's done.
February 1st through 7th
WASTE(D) MANAGEMENT OPEN
Okay the chances are, crowds won't QUITE be the same—but the CDC just released their newest report and Waste Management vibes are corona-immune!
So even if it's us, on our couch, screaming at the TV, spilling cocktails on ourselves, the spirit of Scottsdale will live on!
Plus, as this Arizona newscast shows, we were made for this s#*&.
We see you BB fam!
Honestly, Could Be Any Day Now
BRYSON BREAKING GOLF AGAIN
At this point, we plead the 5th. Do you, Bryson!
THE MASTERS—HELLO, AGAIN, FRIENDS
Let me tell you what a professional Jim Nantz is...
All I wanted for this section to commemorate ANOTHER MASTERS being played in a matter of months was a fun, lighthearted, dare I say goofy picture of Jim Nantz.
Guess what? They don't exist. So much so that the worst picture I could find of the man is actually just Phil Simms photobombing his shot and Jim looking, frankly, peeved in the background. That's it.
The best bloopers I could find was him misremembering that Texas A&M is an SEC school instead of Big 12 and this SHOCKING BLOOPER.
I could go on, but instead I'll just leave it by saying you're a class act Jim, never change.
SUMMER SOLSTICE—A NEW NATIONAL HOLIDAY?
The longest day of the year means one thing. Trying to squeeze as much golf as humanly possible into one gloriously lit day. A little one day tour of Bandon anyone?
Hold up, AND it's Father's Day?! 2021: The Year of the Dad
July 15th through 18th
MAJOR GOLF IN SANDWICH
The golf calendar simply isn’t complete without a turn watching the pros battle it out in golf's motherland. And this year’s Open Championship, postponed from 2020, will take place in none other than Sandwich (Kent, England…)
July 29th through August 1st
GIVE ME THE GOLD, I WANT THE GOLD
Before we dive into the Olympics, there's just too much good gold pop culture content. And for those of you who don't know the Leprechaun video referenced in this post title... please... just take a moment for yourself. We'll wait.
And now for the Olympics... we may only have the Rio 2016 games to base this on, but something about countries going to toe to toe in one tournament, in any sport really, is just too much to handle. U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!
Also we may have found the ultimate hype video for Olympic golf.
Tokyo 2020/2021 is gonna be fire.
FANS! WE. WANT. FANS!
We may not know exactly when golf will return to full attendance but let us be the millionth to say, we can’t wait.
The no fans experiment was obviously necessary and fun from a novelty POV, but golf just isn’t the same without that Sunday roar. And an overserved patron or two...
THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH KROOKS ZISSOU
BBTV's Krooks Boepka is back this week with some tips on getting through an entire round (in the Dominican no less... must be nice...) with one ball.
And look at that moisture-wicking fabric, folks!
