Welcome Will Zalatoris - The Newest Member of the Pardon My Take Golf Fraternity

On today's Pardon My Take... it's a two-fer Friday! Actor Barry Pepper joined the show in addition to golfer Will Zalatoris. The man who had his coming out party last week at The Masters joined Mr. Cat and Mr. Commenter to discuss the ins and outs of his first tournament at Augusta, being compared to Happy Gilmore's caddy, making millions of dollars, and much more.

But there was another reason why the Wake Forest product joined the show - to receive an invitation. The invitation? An offer to join the exclusive Pardon My Take golf crew. Brooks [Blake] Koepka and Max Homa are already in. Is Will Z going to be the third? It's time to find out:

Mr. Cat: It's just crazy that you won all that money, you finished second, you were like, everyone, I'm not going to say household name, but you kind of were after this weekend. And you technically, if you don't win, you don't get to play in the playoff, even though you'd be top 15.  

Will Zalatoris: Yeah, so someone said to me today that if I was on the list, I would hav been 13th or something like that on the FedEx Cup list. But I mean, the job is to go out and go win a golf tournament. I'm kind of looking at it a little more stoic than I should, I guess, but getting mad is not going to solve any problems, so, it is what it is. And I'm in a really weird spot. Like, I don't think there's really been anyone in this spot, maybe, ever.

Mr. Cat: OK, yeah, I got a solution for you. And this is part of the reason why we wanted to have you on. So, we wanted to offer an invitation, we talked to Max Homa and Brooks Koepka, as an official golfer that Pardon My Take roots for. Now, we're not golf guys, so it's a very select group. But what you just described is exactly what we do as a podcast. We will get mad at the PGA for you. You can be stoic, and we can be bitter, and like petty...

Mr. Commenter: Attack dogs. 

Mr. Cat: Attack dogs, all for a small, nominal fee of all future winnings. Do you accept? 

Will Zalatoris: It's non-negotiable, right? 

Mr. Cat: negotiable. Max and Brooks are in. 

Mr. Commenter: Unless you have a counter offer.

Will Zalatoris: Yeah, well, if it's non-negotiable, then yeah, I'm in.

Well, there you have it, folks. Blake Koepka. Max Homa. Will Zalatoris. They are your Pardon My Take PGA Big Three. This trio is about to win tons of golf tournaments and millions of dollars over the next handful of decades. And PMT will be a big reason for their success.
