The Daily: Smylie Wants Beef’s Resume, Piers Morgan Rips Rio Dropouts, Bryan Bros Mini-Me

In today’s PGW Daily, everyone is excited for the Web.com finals, the European Tour introduces a fun ‘Beat the Pros’ contest, and Beef is doing Beef things!

Withdrawing

Thomas Pieters gives fans an explanation after withdrawing from the European Tour’s KLM Open. Fortunately for him, he already has a Ryder Cup spot (Captain’s pick).

Practice Video of the Day

Jhonattan Vegas getting in some practice before the BMW Championship. The sound on this one is very satisfying.

Opinion of the Day

Journalist Piers Morgan is not going to make a lot of friends on the PGA Tour saying things like that.

Athlete Diets

If you want to look and perform like an elite athlete, you need to eat like one. This is Lexi Thompson’s dinner from last night.

From the looks of it, Thompson seems to be a very credible source.

Product Plug of the Day

AquaHydrate is performance water. Former FedEx Cup Champion Billy Horschel is a believer.

Vine of the Day

Kiradech Aphibarnrat is ready to go at the Web.com finals!

Contest of the Day

Correctly guess the new Asian Tour hashtag and you could be on your way to The Philippines for the RWM Masters!

Slogan of the Day

This guy at the KLM Open appears to be a Joost Luiten fan.

Beef Post of the Day

That might be the best caddie bib ever. Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston is one of the favorites to earn a PGA Tour card at the Web.com finals.

Calling his fans:

Getting Things Started

Getting what should be an exciting week started!

Euro Tour’s Beat The Pro!

The European Tour is light years ahead of the PGA Tour when it comes to engaging fans. This week at the KLM Open, amateurs are getting an opportunity to beat the pro they’re following on the tee shot at the par-3 14th hole.

Twitter Exchange of the Day

One of our favorites, Steven Bowditch, gets into it again on Twitter.

“Beef” is hoping for an invite to #SB2K17. Those would be some hysterical photos!

Smylie Kaufman seems receptive to the idea:

Shot of the Day

Bryan Bros might have some competition.
