"Fore Play" is a weekly podcast by common golfers, for common golfers. Trent, Riggs and their wide variety of guests talk about everything golf like normal folks sitting at a bar watching coverage, venting about the game's difficulties, and weighing in on pro gossip. Your classic golf addicts, the "Fore Play" crew brings a young, unique voice to the rapidly-evolving game, discussing freely and openly everything golf. There is nothing like it.

Torrey Pines is next which means Tiger Woods is back. Despite winning the Farmers Insurance 7 times, Tiger’s not the first or second favorite. We talk Torrey, Brooks vs Bryson, new photos of a dormant Augusta National, Lee Westwood’s career, Lurch suffers a major ping pong setback, and much more.
Frankie Borrelli is forced to publicly apologize to an anonymous Tiger Woods fan account, jacked Bryson fires shots at Brooks Koepka, new slow play policies are rolled out, and Jack Nicklaus makes more comments on Tiger Woods. We discuss this and much more with the full crew.
Chris DiMarco joins the show (53:10) for the first time. DiMarco, unfortunately, had the best seat in the house for Tiger's famous chip-in on 16 at Augusta in the final round of the 2005 Masters, eventually losing to Tiger in a playoff. We discuss battling Tiger Woods, Patrick Reed's handling of the bunker incident, how golf can improve slow play, and MUCH more. Before DiMarco joins, we react to Charlie Woods' golf swing, the Sony Open finish, and Trent's severe addiction to sugar.
We react to the Geoff Shackelford interview, providing our thoughts on how it went, what we wish we would have brought up, and people's reactions. Then we talk all things, Patrick Reed, at Kapalua. Reed says he didn't hear the heckler, Commissioner Jay Monahan believes him, and Chris DiMarco had an outrageous tweet about Reed. We also talk Abraham Ancer saying the media twisted his comments about playing Tiger, we're getting Mr. Borrelli the S7K putter, and what the exact diameter of a golf hole makes Frankie want to fight Lurch.
Geoff Shackelford (3:24)  joins the show to discuss the infamous Old Man Golf Media vs Fore Play saga. We debate each other's place in the golf media landscape and things get everything from contentious to funny to enlightening. Why did Geoff take a shot at Fore Play? Were we justified in firing back? Is there space at the table for all of us? After Geoff joins, we breakdown the crazy finish to the Tournament of Champions at Kapalua.
New year, new decade, new predictions. What kind of year will Tiger have? Will that psycho Rahm win a major? Is Phil done or ready for a resurgence? Who will win the Masters, PGA, U.S. Open and British Open? All that plus Frankie details, as only he could, his Atlantis trip and things that happen to... only Frankie.
Riggs conducts the decade's final Fore Play alone recounting every detail of going solo on the far side of the world: dinner with the locals, embarrassing first tee shots, and what it's like golfing in New Zealand (Tara Iti, Kauri Cliffs, Titirangi) and on King Island (Cape Wickham and Ocean Dunes). Riggs also delivers a serious thank you to all our fans. 
From Bryson on slow play to Fitzpatrick's boy telling him “I'm Back” to LinksGems on photo wars and much more, this show is a highlight mashup of some of our best interview moments from the second half of 2019. We'll be back next week with 2 full shows. Happy holidays, everyone!
We're back in a big way after stirring up golf twitter. We breakdown and react to the whole thing. Then the finale of the Roo Cup is revealed as we relive playing The Dunes, Barnbougle Lost Farm, and Barnbougle Dunes Course on Tasmania.
Captain Tiger Woods lead an epic win over the Internationals at the 2019 Presidents Cup complete with a dominant win over Abe Ancer. He then executed the fist bumps / dap ups  heard round the world. We breakdown the entire week from onsite in Melbourne, Australia.
We're live from the Presidents Cup in Melbourne, Australia. We give reactions to day 1 of 2019 Presidents Cup play, including both Tiger Woods domination and Team USA frustration. We talk International Team logo, fake American fans, tell stories about interacting with the players, reveal our excitement over how firm and fast Royal Melbourne is playing, discuss what it was like meeting a kuala bear named Mozart, and MUCH more.
Live from Australia

Live from Australia


We finally made it to Australia and we're here to talk all about it: the flight, the animals, the golf courses, the Presidents Cup, JT & Xander trying to outdrive Frankie left-handed, the Boss Man, Reed's rules infraction in the Bahamas and MUCH more. Big show.
It's the Trent and Frankie show (for the first half of this episode) They give their thoughts on Riggs round in Bermuda, run through some headlines including Michelle Wie to CBS, every species of Tiger being back and more. Then Riggs and Andrew breakdown Riggs shooting 103-100 in the 2019 Goslings Invitational.
Jason Day pulls out from the Presidents Cup, Adam Scott is worried the Australian crowd is going to cheer for Tiger (duh), & DJ withdraws from the Hero. After, we discuss the difference in plastic vs wooden tees after England's oldest club banned the use of plastic tees, who is most likely to be attacked by a wild animal in Australia, giving/getting mid-round swing tips from another golfer, and more.
It's Thanksgiving week and we're talking food. Is there a bigger regional difference in pizza or clam chowder? In golf, Trent makes a guarantee about his scores in Australia, Riggs reveals insights into the Barstool Classic 2020 schedule, and Frankie thinks he's back thanks to the latest Kisner tip. In headlines we talk RSM Classic, Rahm winning in Dubai, and young Tiger Woods saying he wants a 1 and 2-iron from Santa.
How dangerous is Australia? Could we die by snake? Shark? Croc? Spider? Scorpion? Could Rory McIlroy beat Frankie blindfolded? Who should Tiger have tapped to replace Brooks Koepka? All that, plus a chat with our 2019 Barstool Classic champions.
Up and coming women's golf star Maria Fassi (63:02) joins the show to talk hitting bombs, battling on the back nine at Augusta in the inaugural Augusta National Women's Amateur, and life as a rookie on tour. Before Maria joins the show, we discuss Brendon Todd's back-to-back wins, a bunker shank for the ages, and how some things are bigger than golf.
A weekend at Kisner’s

A weekend at Kisner’s


We spent this past weekend with Kiz in his hometown of Aiken, South Carolina. We played his home course, Palmetto, and recount what it's like playing a round with tour pros. Then we played Sage Valley, witnessed a Kiz & Dewey clinic, and a private Lee Brice & Tyler Farr concert. Riggs then (86:03) sat down for a hilarious round table with Kiz, Chappell, and Dufner. Shoutout to the Kisner Foundation. What an epic weekend. 
Pinehurst. Tobacco Road. A bucketlist buddies golf trip through North Carolina. This show recounts our journey from the wild and crazy Tobacco Road to the historic and cherished Pinehurst. We stayed at Tobacco Road's Stewart Cabin and at Pinehurst's Dornach Cottage (Donald Ross' old home). After each round, we sat by the fire and relived Tobacco Road, Pinehurst no. 8, no. 2, no. 4, and The Cradle. You don't want to miss this one.
We're podcasting live from the Dornach Cottage at Pinehurst. We talk Rory McIlroy, Tiger vs Greg Norman, and LPGA rules controversies. In From The Gallery, we discuss how big the hole would have to be for us to be competitive on the PGA TOUR.

Just found my new favorite podcast. I'm a big fan of playing golf, but watch it on TV sparingly (majors and lazy Sundays). This is perfect for me. Keep it up guys!
