Matt Adams of PGA Tour Radio and the Back 9 Network joined the “Glenn Younes Show” to discuss the Players Championship. Matt is also a New York Times best-selling author.
First up was the amazing first day put up by Roberto Castro. This is Castro’ second year on tour and tied the course record with a 63 (-9) on the first day of competition. “If we aren’t already in a new threshold we will cross it soon. There will be a new golden age in golf because the kids today don’t hold back.”
Rory McIlroy was next up. On the first day he shot a 66 (-6) and is tied for second. When asked where Rory will finish, Matt responded, “Here’s the thing with Rory McIlroy is that everybody compares him to Tiger Woods. Is he more like Phil Mickelson where he has peaks and valleys, and this week he is ripping it up.”
