Pimento Cheese & Domestics - 2021 Masters Recap Main pod ep with Augie and Charlie! They recap the tournament, analyze the commentary, and go down the usual unplanned roads. Also, the boys have a little spring golf under their belts and scramble szn sign-ups are already popping up. It’s a great time to be alive.
The Gambling Show* - Bay Hill The umbrella is on display this week at Bay Hill - the iconic Arnold Palmer logo that takes money out of pockets. So let’s try to win some this week. A lot of choices which Stu will take. Augie will try and narrow it down. Other topics sneak in thanks to margaritas and Little Sumpin’… not sorry.
The Gambling Show* - Riviera After a week off-ish, we’re back in action. Life got in the way for Stu and Augie, but the latter was able to make a couple wagers, one being on the larger side.Quick recaps of the past two week. The Cannonball Players Of The Week keep making cuts in the big pool, but are getting passed. The Waste Management Phoenix Open is not only a zero waste event but also a zero betting win event (there’s more jokes in there, but you know… beer and gelatin weed).As for Pebble, Stu didn’t lose what he didn’t put in the middle - sometimes you just need a week off. Augie bet big (relative to $1 units) on a Chicagoland native - free money. If you followed on IG, Twitter, et al, you would have made easy money too. Not even a sweat.
The Gambling Show* - WM Phoenix Open The best tournament/party of the year - although muted for the 2021 edition. The Cannonball Golf Team is gaining ground in the season long one and done. Stu gets off the gravy train and in now captain of the Gravy Boat… big week for him. Augie, turns the most slim of weekly profit, but is still down from whiffing the week prior.A lot of big names this week, strong field - gonna be fun to watch, especially with some skin on the line. The biggest question remains that we didn’t discuss - do we take the hole in one bet or not. Gotta take it, right?-Augie
The Gambling Show* - Farmers @ Torrey Last week, our weekly pool pick had the 36 hole lead, but no victory. I whiffed on sportsbook betting, while Stu hit - but there’s already controversy to his season sportsbook record. Is he keeping two sets of records?!Onto this week at the Farmers… the famed [Tiger but without Tiger] Torrey Pines. See who the pool pick is. And we discuss the plethora of options for the sportsbook wagers. Official cards will be put on socials.Apologies for the brevity… busy week on the home fronts and in the world.Cannonball Cuuuumin’-Augie
The Gambling Show* Amex [Desert Classic] C’mon - call it the [Desert Classic]! Augie and Uncle Stu briefly refresh the Cannonball Golf One and Done Pick-em-all-before-the-season-starts pool pick this week in Sungjae Im - and briefly discuss Daniel Berger’s T7 last week… we’re on the board y’all! Then, we get into some sportsbook betting picks for the [Desert Classic]. We are not sponsored by the event title sponsor, so they only get referred to in the title.Other topics covered: the faces on paper money, strip club $2 bills, and kids shoveling snow/ice. Hey, who said this was strictly a gambling show?… lots of life lessons to be learns across various subjects. Think of it as shooting the shit between shots on the golf course… or hell, while you’re over the ball.Cannonball Comin’/Cummin’-Augie
The Gambling Show* - 2021 Season Picks Augie and Uncle Stu enter the Cannonball Golf team into a season long one and done pool. The catch - all players must be chosen before the first even. A guy chooses not to play an event, tough shit. But we have the secret sauce - Stu’s pivot table for all results going back 8 years so we can see the likelihood of a player choosing an event and their finishes.For some events, we leave it to the golf gods and flip a coin. Karma comes back quickly on Stu for saying Cameron Champ is a has been. And we decide putting the term “retrench” into our on-course smack talk repertoire will create an advantage during future on-course gambling.So grab yourself a few beers, pop a gummy to open up those brain receptors, and sit back as the debate ensues on who to slate from the Sony Open to the Wyndham Championship. But we have to start with the majors and Players, along with the WGCs. And then the remainder.Cannonball Comin’-Augie
Masters Swag - 2020 Recap Say what you will about DJ, the guy’s got swag.Augie and Charlie start off by featuring and discussing the most coveted golf merch - Masters merch - new and old - some filled with tequila and Coors Orig.Next up, a historic year for the tournament - the 2020 version with no fans, DJ’s record-breaking dominate swag, and some(one) who talked about re-writting par around the famed and historic Augusta National.International players made a splash near the top. Plus, Iron Bernhard makes the cut at the age of 60+ and takes it head-to-head against the young, talkative, bombing whippersnapper.Tiger makes a 10… haven’t we all? Haven’t we all birdied the next 5 of 6? Tiger Woods is your 2021 champion. Book it.Champions dinner is always a hot topic - might look different next year if DJ executes his sandwich foreshadowing.Who at the top of the world rankings would be a good hang - like slugging beers and playing golf good hang. Seemingly few and far between according to the boys.Speaking of beers on the golf course - Augie and Charlie, with their tail between their legs, discuss the 2020 Fall Scramble season which started with promise and ended with empty pockets.Until next year (maybe?)…Cheers!
