Rex & Lav podcast: Are we numb to the brilliance of young players?

By admin Jul8,2024

Amateur Luke Clanton did something that hasn’t been done in 66 years. Michael Thorbjornson tied for second in his third professional start. Davis Thompson, a relative elder at age 25, set a new scoring record at the John Deere Classic.

They also chat about Rory McIlroy’s impending return at the Genesis Scottish Open and, if the youth don’t impress you, Rex’s Scottish itinerary might.
