Show Highlights:
-Rich Lerner and John Hawkins agree it's troubling that Matt Kuchar and other players could win the FedExCup without winning a tournament all season.
-Brandel Chamblee says it's insane that Keegan Bradley could win PGA TOUR Player of the Year and not be on the Presidents Cup team.
-Jay Coffin says that if Jim Furyk falls outside the top 10 in the Presidents Cup standings, Fred Couples can't pick him because he already used his lifetime achievement pick on Tiger Woods.
-John Hawkins thinks Fred Couples is a no-brainer for the 2012 World Golf Hall of Fame, Brandel Chamblee agrees.
-John Hawkins says the Tiger Era has been over for awhile, and while we may still see flashes of brilliance, he'll never be a dominant golfer again.
-Brandel Chamblee thinks Tiger at his peak was twice as good as any player in the game today.

Viewer Comments:
Tim Clancy (Shoreham, NY):
'Love the show. Would have to say Wayne Gretzky was on the same level for the same amount of time in hockey as Tiger Woods was in golf.'

'The Woods Era is over, and the Wie Era never came to fruition.'

Garrett Harding:
'I am a junior golfer in Maryland and have always looked up to Tiger for the way he would handle the pressure when it mattered the most.  As I'm watching the 19th Hole, you guys just said that Tiger will never be back and ever be the same.  Tiger is one of the greatest competitors in the game of golf, nothing is gonna stop Tiger from achieving his goal of winning 19 majors.  I believe if not this year than next, Tiger will come back looking to make a statement, we saw glimpses of it last year.'

Audrey King:
'No one mentioned Snedeker for the 2nd pick.  He is playing better than Fowler and has a great personality and smile! With Keegan having a major I suppose he should be the one. A charming laddie! Needs aggression!! I rarely ever miss the 19th Hole.  Once a week I make a meal for my kiddies. My son-in-law said 'why are you leaving?'  'I have to watch the Grey Goose, night-night' said I.  I have an unopened bottle of Grey Goose on my wet bar.'
