RBC Heritage Recap: Finding New Things To Say About Scottie

4/22/2024
In the wake of yet *another* Scottie Scheffler win - this perhaps the most improbable of all on a short turnaround after his victory at the Masters - Smylie Kaufman and Charlie Hulme try to find terms to describe Scottie’s brilliance on the course that haven’t already been used during his four-wins-in-five-starts run. Smylie and Charlie theorize as to what’s being done to market Scottie off the course, and whether there are creative ways to capture his grounded personality in a way that connects with fans. SK and CH compare Scottie’s run to the only golfer on the planet who is in hotter form than he is - Nelly Korda - after her *fifth* win in five starts at the first major of the LPGA season. All that + Miles Russell’s historic feat, Smylie’s big golf trip, and another addition to the Smylie Show gnome family.

SK then catches up with Tyler Toney and Garrett Hilbert of Dude Perfect, who were in Augusta to watch the first major of 2024. Finally, Smylie and Charlie make their much anticipated one-and-done picks while riding a five-for-their-last-eight heater (although they are officially out of Scottie Scheffler usages).
