The 19th Hole Golf Show: On JT’s fan incident and Tiger Woods’ great performance at The Honda Classic


This episode is all about two big stories coming out of The Honda Classic. First, we talk about Justin Thomas' win and the preceding ejection of a surly fan on the 16th hole on Sunday. Was JT thin-skinned or did he do the right thing? We talk about why golf tournaments are thought different than other sporting events, and why that might be wrong.

We also look at Tiger Woods' 12th-place finish at PGA National, perhaps somewhat unexpected. Given what we've seen from Woods in three starts in 2018, it might not be that crazy to think he can win again, even at the Masters.
