If you’ve wondered what it would be like to have your own private PGA Tour event, one in which you watch whom you want when you want without having to look through three rows of heads in front of you, let me tell you.
It’s not bad.
Don’t tell commissioner Jay Monahan that there’s something to spectator-free PGA Tour events but, having been inside the so-called bubble at both the RBC Heritage and the Memorial Tournament, it’s easy to get comfortable with essentially having the place – the course and the players – to yourself.
That’s not a suggestion that tournament golf is better without fans. It isn’t.
But it does keep “mashed potatoes” guy away.
What felt strange the first couple of days at Harbour Town last month didn’t feel quite as strange at Muirfield Village last week. Still, watching Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka play two rounds together while being followed only by a handful of camera-carrying golf carts and a dozen or so people who had passed the necessary measures to be allowed in was unusual.
