On the PGA tour did announced today as expected. That Memphis is going to be the home of a World Golf Championship event it'll start in August 2019. And Sicily for people who don't follow golf and what that means is that we are no longer. Gonna spend. A handful of months leading up to an event. Hoping Phil Mickelson might grace us with his presence again. Or that Willie Mac award might show while board that Jason Day might show up where they Dustin Johnson and Paulina might show up. Oh we build the best golfers in the world are coming to Memphis August 9 2019. And that probably means. Tiger Woods for the first time ever as a professional it is. I know that if you don't follow golf you might not. Understand how big of a deal this is that this is a massive deal. For our community and it's another massive deal for a community. That would not be happening without the backing a FedEx. Not very clearly it's just a reminder of what not to renew you want context means secretly would have been nearby trichet axed. The doctor ordered a long time ago but trichet. And certainly this. And improve golf tournament where you're exactly right in my top fifty players in the world and and like last year the vehicle a tournament 49 of top fifty came. It it's one of those you know it's one of those that changed the trajectory of things it's not. If it's not as big as Memphis getting into the big east could have worked out great like that would have bigger like I believe that event Epstein. But it is a structural change that can have a huge impact in the world won't change that golf tournament it termed a tighter building interest thank. Whether he will I don't know that you probably will it but he got it it you know he's got to look at one of the top fifty in the world. And he's not now. And it is but the yelling in the eighties that capital why do you get a couple seven under to the eighties which is where he. Eat eat eat eat to come but it is to get from being what it up on many tournaments. Comedian could I look at it and so you got to Tori gonna win the tournament. Or are some things and that it will be interest in whether. 'cause tigers who beat any team I can go to World Golf Championships currently like. Exactly majors but people eighteen to Becky he goes to look like they're Auburn is can't. And so you've got to qualify haven't beat you've got to come. But I think there's at least a reasonable chance and can you imagine how insane that would be. You hope that would be just knocks. That we got that you because there's going to be all about golfers in the world. Except tiger but tiger is also there. It will be wanna be great sporting events memorable sporting events and. Yet none I mean no question I mean at worst we're gonna have the best golfers in the world. But at best you'll have that the best golfers in the world plus the biggest name. I think probably in the in the history of the sport if Tiger Woods in Memphis for the first time it would be. Terrific so I'm looking forward acting like you already to August 2019.
