Talking Tiger Woods, Brooks Koepka and the PGA Championship how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar With Jason Sobel The Big Lead

Action network senior writer jason sobel is back home in how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar his native long island covering the PGA championship at one how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar of his favorite courses in the world, bethpage black. It’s where he covered one of his first major championships, the 2002 U.S. Open won by tiger woods, and it’s where he shot one of the best rounds of how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar his career (more on that later). But for sobel, this week is all about dustin johnson, brooks koepka and the rest of the biggest hitters on how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar tour, who he’s favoring to hoist the wanamaker trophy on sunday.

Sobel sat down with the big lead over lunch at how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar long island’s most famous public course and broke down tiger’s odds to win this week, tiger’s odds to break jack nicklaus’s record of 18 majors, why koepka’s mindset in majors is stronger than the rest, and what hitting his first hole-in-one meant to him.

Jason sobel: it’s fun. It’s the most fun job I’ve ever had. I’m doing a lot of the same things that I’ve been doing for the last 15 years, but now it’s built around betting and around fantasy. To me, it’s interesting and it interests the readers as well. If they have five minutes to click on one link, are they going to click on the link that’s a good read or are they going to click how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar on the link that could help them win a lot how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar of money this week? It’s a no-brainer to me. That’s why everyone is falling in line and trying to how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar cover the game the way we are. And it’s just going to get bigger and bigger. I always tell people, even if you’re not gambling and just want to be smarter about how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar what you’re watching on T.V. Every week, read our stuff. It’s just smarter. I’m doing more research and looking more into numbers and how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar analytics than I have in the past and it’s making me smarter about what I’m writing and I hope in turn it’s making the readers smarter too.

JS: absolutely hope so. It’s the perfect sport for it. Live betting in golf is like a marriage that’s waiting to happen. You can live bet an NBA game and by the how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar time you get your bet in the team that was how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar down four is now up one. Things change so quickly in other sports. In golf, you have 10 minutes between shots. It’s the perfect opportunity for people to sit at home how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar or at a tournament and say, ‘here’s what I’m seeing, here’s what I’m betting, here’s what I want to to take advantage of’. It’s the perfect opportunity, whether it’s a two-screen experience or something else, I think it’s perfect for it.

JS: the actual odds from the book I saw after he how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar won the masters, and granted it’s directly after he won his 15th and it’s tiger mania once again, and there were actual odds in the book of 50-to-1. I always say, if you’re trying to get me to bet on something that’s never actually happened before, you have to give me better than 50-to-1 odds. I think it’s since gone up to 100-to-1. Even so, I think it’s gotta be more than that. Look, when he was at 14 majors, he still needed to have the career of phil mickelson how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar or of seve ballesteros . Now that he has 15, at age 43 on, he still needs to have the career of rory mcilroy how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar or ernie els. And no other player his age has won more than how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar one. So I think he’s up against it.

JS: I leave the odds to the handicappers who know what how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar they’re talking about. Look, I don’t know that he should be the favorite in the how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar field, but he’s close to it. I think most books have him at 10-to-1, 11-to-1. I think that’s fair. If I was making odds, I might have him at 12-to-1 or 15-to-1, but I think it’s about right. And the tiger numbers are always going to be lower, like betting on the yankees in the world series. Everyone wants to bet on tiger. So I understand that. I ranked the entire field one through 156, and I’ve got him no. 5 on my list. So yeah, he’ll be around, he’ll be in contention. I don’t think he’s going to win. I have four guys I like better than him, but at no. 5, I have him better than 151 other guys in the how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar field so I still like him a lot this week.

JS: I think, big boy golf course, big ballpark and you’re going to see all the big hitters near the how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar top. I think this is going to be a week where how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar even the big guys can’t hit driver wedge. So the advantage is going to be bigger for guys how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar like dustin johnson, brooks koepka and bubba watson because if they’re hitting 8 irons into the greens when other guys how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar are hitting 5 and 6 irons, that’s a huge differential. I think that’s a bigger differential than if they’re hitting wedges and the other guys are hitting 8 how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar irons. So, I think it plays into the hands of those big how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar hitters.

Dustin johnson is at the top of my list. He’s almost flown under the radar this year. He’s accumulated more world-ranking points in 2019 alone than anyone else in golf how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar and yet we’re not really talking about him. We’re talking about tiger, we’re talking about koepka, we’re talking about rory. We’re not really talking about dustin johnson. But according to the numbers, he’s been the best player in the world this year how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar and he’s ranked no. 1. For a guy who’s playing the best and ranked no. 1 to come in here under the radar is both how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar strange and appeals to me. He’s played really well on northeast golf courses, he plays well on long golf course, and he plays well on wet golf courses. Put those three things together and I really like him how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar this week.

JS: he’s playing really, well. The course should suit his game. But I’m still just a little hesitant to pick rory just how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar based on what we’ve seen on sundays this year. I know he kind of got rid of that narrative how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar at the players championship because he was able to finally how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar win. He played so well going into that without winning on how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar sundays. And those sunday final rounds are his blip on the how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar radar right now. He was able to come through at the players. We thought that narrative was done, and then he went to quail hollow a couple of how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar weeks ago, he’s two back going into the final round with, really, not too many other world-class players up on top of that leaderboard, and he got boat raced by a couple of guys how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar who have never won before. So, I think that’s not the greatest sign for rory. I don’t think something is broken. But it might need to be a little fixed. I don’t know if that’s physical, mental, technical, physiological, but something needs to work better for him on sundays.

JS: he’s among the most interesting golfers in the world if how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar not the most interesting in that he’s spoken on multiple occasions about not caring about golf. And about letting it go. And I don’t necessarily disagree that that’s a good strategy. I think there’s something to that. Sean foley, the instructor, told me once that he tells all of his players how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar it has to mean everything and it has to mean how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar nothing at all. Meaning you have to really want it, but if you sit there and think about how bad how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar you want it all the time, you’ll never go and get it. I think brooks koepka has mastered the ability to really how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar want to go and win majors and yet kind of how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar just brush it off like it’s just another week. I think rory is trying to talk himself into that how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar and isn’t quite as far into the process as he thinks how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar it is.

I asked him that question and he said part of how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar it is scheduling and he always likes to play the how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar week before. But if playing the week before was the key to how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar winning major championships, everyone would do it. So that’s not really it. But he talked about being more low key, not stressed out, not anxious about it. He’s really good at compartmentalizing the game and seeing the how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar big picture. He’ll say, ‘I’d like to win this week, but it’s not a big deal’ where other guys are like, ‘I only have four chances a year and one of how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar them is gone already because the masters is over, now I only have three chances, I better do it this week,’ and I think they almost psych themselves out a bit. But brooks has the perfect temperament for it and it’s been working out for him.

JS: big hitters. Following the same theme as to why I’m picking some of those elite players, because those elite guys are all big bombers, I think second- and third-tier players who are also big bombers can also play how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar well. I’ve got thomas pieters really high on my list. I’ve got keith mitchell, scott piercy, jhonattan vegas, jason kokrak, gary woodland. These guys are all top 10 in terms of driving how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar statistics on the PGA tour and I think that’s going to be a major factor here this week. I just don’t know a guy who hits it 280 and plods how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar his way around, I just don’t see a guy like that on this golf course how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar in this weather being able to succeed.

JS: something’s broken there, and I don’t know what it is. Much like I was saying about rory in the final how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar rounds, I don’t know whether it’s physical, mental, technical, or physiological, but something is going on right now for spieth that’s keeping him from being better. I don’t think it’s going to be a very long-term thing. The people who are writing off spieth, and I see it all the time on social media, I mention jordan’s name and people say he’s done, he was a flash in the pan. There are no three-time major champion flash in the pans. It doesn’t happen that way. He will be one of the world’s best once again. I don’t know if it’s going to be next month or next year, but when he’ll get to that point. But right now something is wrong. I don’t know what it is or how he fixes it. But jordan is kind of the opposite of brooks koepka. Where brooks can kind of brush it off, jordan puts so much internal pressure on himself to play how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar well, not just every tournament, not just every round, but every shot. It feels like there’s so much stress around jordan. I get the sense, and I haven’t talked to jordan in a while about this, and I don’t know what’s going on with him, maybe there’s something he’s not talking about, maybe there’s a secret to it, but I just feel like there’s so much swirling in his head when he’s standing over the golf ball right now that it’s impossible for him to succeed.

JS: loved everything about the new schedule when it was announced, and there could not be a more perfect storm for how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar the PGA of america and the PGA championship than tiger how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar woods winning the masters, and instead of waiting two months for the next major how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar championship, one month later they’re still building on the momentum of tiger’s win, you have almost all of the best players in the how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar world here, you’re in the biggest media market in the world, it could not have worked out better for them. Then, looking down the road, you’ve got the U.S. Open next month, the open championship one month later, so you have them all in a row, all lined up. And then at the end of the season, you have the fedexcup playoffs and it gets out of how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar the way before the football season starts. Tim finchem, when he announced the fedexcup playoffs back in 2006, said golf has to end before football starts. Everyone said that was a great plan, and then they finished the fedexcup playoffs in week 3 how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar or 4 of the NFL season. Now finally golf is going to end before the football how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar season starts and that’s massive for the game, massive for the tour.

JS: it’s fun. I moved away a long time ago and I haven’t lived here in a long time, but my folks are still here most of my family how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar is still here so it’s always fun to come back home. I didn’t play much golf growing up, but when I come back I try to play golf how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar at bethpage. I feel like bethpage is the home club for all how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar the public golfers out on long island. You feel like you’re a part owner of this place if you’re a tax-paying citizen. I love this place. I played probably one of my best rounds of golf how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar ever here at bethpage. I’ve got a special place in my heart for it how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar and it’s one of the first tournaments I ever covered, back in 02, when I was working over on the TV side for how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar ESPN. Being here and around my people, it’s just a fun place. And it’s good to be home. I get some home cooking this week.

JS: yeah. Very much. I play a lot of golf. I play at least 3-4 days a week when I’m back home in orlando. I’ve come close so many times. I just wanted to do it. Now, if I never make another one for the rest of how to get rid of ants in the house vinegar my life, I’m good. Now I can die in peace.
