The Doug Gottlieb Show Weekly Rewind 8/1-8/5

JIMMY WALKER – 8/1/16
PGA Championship winner

“There’s still a lot of golf left and some good players out there. I knew Jason (Day) had birdied nine and he got close, and I was like, ‘Oh, man, is he going to start to make a run? I better get my stuff together.’ I caught a beautiful lie in the bunker and just made it work. That was pretty awesome. And then to follow that up with another birdie on the next hole, a nice long putt after a mediocre wedge shot, was even bigger, I think.”

Professional skydiver

“Two minutes will put you right down there at about 1,500 feet, 1,000 feet above the ground. You’re moving pretty good. A normal opening altitude is about 2,500 feet. For training for this, I was opening around 1,000 feet, so there wasn’t a whole lot of time in order to get that dialed in. But my practice jumps got me to where I was within three seconds or so of when I would actually hit the net. So we had that tested out pretty good.”

STEPHAN JAEGER – 8/2/16
Professional golfer

“We play a lot of par-72s, and this was a par-70. So you’re like, ‘(I’m) 8-under, two par-5s to go, you kind of have that a little bit on your mind. I went ahead and three-putted the next hole for par on the par-5, and I was like, ‘Dang, that’s really not what you want to do.’ But I came back and birdied the next three holes to get to 11. It was just a crazy round. It really was. It was just lights out.”

“So for us to (be willing to give all that talent) up, obviously we had high hopes for what he would contribute to the team over this year and next year.”

LEE JENKINS – 8/4/16
Sports Illustrated writer

“But because of the way Durant is – sort of impulsive – they knew if he went through those meetings, if he really sat down with people, there was always a chance that he could be swayed. And I think they felt as if Russell Westbrook (is) just not that way. He’s just wired a little differently. Even if he was going to tell them what they didn’t want to hear, that he would be able to say it, that he’d look them in the eye and say, ‘Ship me out of here’ or ‘I’m going to re-sign,’ that he would go into it with a plan and not (be) as wishy-washy – and clearly that’s what happened.”

JACKIE JOYNER-KERSEE – 8/4/16
Former Olympian

“(A few weeks ago), he ran 19.86. That ain’t no slouch. That could win a lot of championships. That hamstring seems like it’s going to be ready. That’s the most difficult thing at that level. You don’t want to get injured because there’s a lot of times, especially like my last Olympic games, I was injured with a hamstring problem. You just never know when that leg is going to go. But I do think that Usain is going to be ready, as well as the American athletes are going to be ready. So it’s going to be a test, but 19.86 in the 200 meters, that’s flying.”
