Show Highlights:
-Rocco Mediate says it's huge to win a money title but majors should play the biggest role in voting for Player of the Year.
-Jay Coffin thinks Webb Simpson had the best year of anybody on the PGA TOUR.
-Mediate says the U.S. Presidents Cup team doesn't care what Greg Norman says about them.
-John Hawkins doesn't know why Tiger Woods is still with swing coach Sean Foley and calls Tiger 'stubborn'.
-Rocco calls Tiger the strongest mental player ever to play the game.
-The guys hand out grades for the PGA TOUR season: Jay Coffin gives a C- and says parity isn't good for the game, Hawk gives the same C- but says things will get better and Rocco gives the season a D.

Viewer Comments and Questions:
Hugh Allen:
I totally disagree about the need for 'heroes and villians'. Every time some new talent appears and replaces the tired old guys, you feel that somehow it's not interesting anymore. You do a terrible disrespect to the winners and contenders every week. When you should be praising them, you keep talking about the irrelevent people like Tiger and Phil.

Robert Leonard:
I have never missed the 19th Hole, and I really enjoy it. You have me a little on edge, however. I am concerned that you are beginning to be referred to as 'The Tiger Channel.' Certainly there are many other interesting and entertaining stories and personalities that can be topics of conversation for your excellent commentators.
