This conversation about a crab between Rory and Bubba is the best case for mic'd up players
On Thursday in Harbor Town, a microphone admitted to Adam Hadwin that he had been punished and highlighted how entertaining professional golfers can be. Sure, the two-stroke violation was heartbreaking for the 32-year-old Canadian, but it was fascinating television for viewers.
But not everyone is interested in fans hearing everything they have to say during a round, especially some of the best players in the world. Brooks Koepka says that if announcers "just shut up and listen," players wouldn't have to wear microphones. Justin Thomas says it is "just not him" and what he says about his Caddy Jimmy Johnson is not for public consumption. Jon Rahm believes that it won't be as entertaining as people think.
Judging from this conversation, which was recorded between Rory McIlroy and Bubba Watson on Saturday, Rahm couldn't be more wrong. On the 17th par-3, Watson's tee shot found a bunker on the green where his ball was buried in fried egg style. As he prepared to meet his second, Watson noticed a crab under his golf ball. We let him, Rory and PGA Tour, the official Slugger White, take over from here:
Outstanding stuff from this trio as well as from Watson's Caddy Ted Scott. If you've stayed at the end and listened closely, you've heard McIlroy's best line: "Not the kind of crab problems that people usually worry about." Gross!
Here's the thing: these two weren't miced. This conversation was recorded on this boom mic right next to the green, and the announcers must have heard Koepka's advice "shut up and listen" because they did a great job. Koepka may have a point, but there is also a place in the middle where you can meet. Less talk from the announcers and microphone players are two things that everyone can leave behind.
