Chatting Rory, Jordan and Periscope on “Friends of Tiger” podcast
By Stephanie Wei under General

For the second time in the past couple of weeks, I joined Shane Ryan on his podcast, “Friends of Tiger” to talk about the past week in golf.

It’s been an interesting week or so for me. The PGA Tour revoked my media credentials last Thursday essentially because I used Periscope to live-stream part of a practice round (starring Masters champ Jordan Spieth).

We also talk Rory McIlroy’s big win at the WGC-Match Play Championship. Shane wrote a column last night and he mused over the fact that American fans wanted to quick to crown Spieth the new king and that Rory’s pedigree hasn’t been largely embraced or he hasn’t resonated with U.S. fans (which I find weird). It’s true. America loves Spieth more solely on the fact that he’s American.

Thoughts?
