When we last left you at the OVS Golf League, we finished the sector 1 roundup with this:
So all in all, Nike and team Rahm have a healthy lead, with Titleist in striking distance and Taylor Made lurking at the top of the midfield. Srixon is gonna have to do a lot of digging not to get relegated (if there is relegation idk).
But just after we logged off, on the eve of the Players Championship, no less, we have breaking news.
There has been a trade. Sort of.
First, the rules for a trade are simple: All players must be compatible with the team they are joining. Rory can’t get traded to Callaway. Rahm can’t go to CJ.
Thus, Taylor Made has traded Jordan Spieth (who we have established, is a complete wild card given his association with Taylor Made in the first place), to Team Srixon, in exchange for absolutely nothing/future considerations. The Putnam/Knox/NeSmith trio, which was a half baked idea in the first place, has been dropped to make room for Spieth.
One thing people are clamoring for to differentiate this from LIV is the ability to elevate players who have earned their spot in the picture. One guy has done that, and he happens to be a perfect fit on Team Taylor Made:
Welcome to the OVS Golf League/Team Taylor Made, Kurt Kitayama.
The preceding transactions having been deemed in the best interests of the league, are approved.
Now, there are two ways to approach this. On the one hand, in reality this trade would be effective going forward. But this league doesn’t exist in reality. It exists on a blog. So, if you want to live in reality, you can stop reading now, but if you want to have some fun, let’s apply this retroactively, which would make sector 1 look like this:
Taylor Made, with Kitayama’s win are right on Titleist’s tail. Meanwhile, Srixon has been made competitive by the addition of the ringer Spieth.
Others on the hot seat include Corey Connors (Seamus Power) and Kevin Kisner (Chris Kirk), but no further transactions are being made at this time.
