Max Homa, Roaster of Swings


Max Homa (16:16) joins the show for the first time. The PGA Tour winner & prolific twitter user discusses — during what was supposed to be his first ever Masters week — the revised 2020 golf schedule, a November Masters, roasting people’s swings online, meeting Tiger Woods on the driving range, and a whole lot more. A top interview in Fore Play history.
We’re not a hockey podcast, so Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Brady Skjei (54:35) joins the show. We talk quarantine life, guys in the NHL’s golf games, Brady’s thoughts (former New York Ranger) on Frankie’s Henrik Lundqvist takes, and a ton more. In Headlines, rumors of a Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Tom Brady & Peyton Manning match continue to intensify. In From The Gallery, how many strokes would you save if every green were perfectly flat?
Matthew Fitzpatrick (16:16) joins the show in quarantine. The 25th ranked player in the world tells all time stories about playing Augusta, buying a hitting net, beating kids online in fifa and weighs in on some of our classic debates.
Quarantine episode 4. Riggs traveled to the White House and back, conducting an interview on the coronavirus situation and meeting the Vice President. He tells the story alone, then the rest of the crew delves into some all-time From The Galleries: Which pro golfer would you inject with truth serum; would you take all of Tiger’s skills & wins if it meant he never existed; would you take 2 putts on every single hole you play?
It’s our third episode under quarantine life. How’s everyone holding up? We discuss Riggs at Pinehurst, Trent in Manhattan, Frankie on Long Island, and Lurch in Charleston. We also get into Rickie, JT, Brooks & DJ’s lefty games, and take a bunch of From The Galleries, including if you’d choose one round with Tiger at your local muni or one round at Augusta with your buddies. 2 hours. Let’s go.
Riggs fled to Pinehurst. Lurch to Charleston. Trent and Frankie are locked down in New York City. It’s quarantine show number 2 and a few of us are already going stir crazy. We discuss potential fall Masters dates, the cancellation of more tournaments, what it’d be like if the PGA TOUR went on a fanless municipal golf course tour, and take several From The Galleries.
The whole crew is in quarantine due to the novel coronavirus but that isn’t stopping us. Kevin Kisner joins to discuss his experience as a player at The PLAYERS Championship during the cancelation, what he thinks will happen to the 2020 Masters, and what he’s going to do while out of a job. Without Kiz, we debate how deadly golf is as a sport, living and playing Pebble Beach if you weren’t allowed to play anywhere else, and which par 3 would be the best to get a hole-in-one on in competition.
The Masters Tournament has been postponed due to coronavirus concerns. The PLAYERS Championship has been canceled. The PGA TOUR has been canceled for the next month. We hop in the studio for an emergency podcast to discuss an October Masters with pumpkins replacing azaleas and apple trees replacing big oaks, how the Tour handled the developing situation, if Tiger Woods knew all along, and everything else surrounding coronavirus hysteria.
The hilarious 2-time PLAYERS champion Steve Elkington joins the show for the third time (25:13 - 57:27). Elk calls while strolling the range at Sawgrass, running into Pat Perez and commentating on Brooks Koepka chipping right in front of him. Elk weighs in on the course conditions, Patrick Reed’s situation, swing advice, Rory’s game and MUCH more. The crew also previews The PLAYERS and takes several From The Galleries, including if Tiger would have had more or less success if he were a left-handed golfer.
Riggs & Lurch return from the 2020 Dadbod Classic and recap the week at Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill & Spanish Bay. After, we react to Bay Hill including Bryson’s thoughts on how “the physics stopped working,” discuss the PGA considering a move from Harding Park in San Francisco to TPC Sawgrass in Florida due to Coronavirus, PLAYERS Championship week, at what age will Tiger Woods not be able to compete at the Masters, how many golf balls we’ve lost our careers, and MUCH more.
Riggs & Lurch are off to Pebble as the whole crew’s back together to discuss what would happen if Augusta canceled the Masters, if you could take some of Tiger’s talents but it meant he loses his, and the latest with (maybe) Justine Reed’s burner account.
Gil Hanse (24:45), one of golf’s most renowned course architects, joins the show for nearly an hour. We talk building The Cradle short course right in Pinehurst’s front yard, creating Pinehurst’s new no. 4 course, restoring Winged Foot ahead of this summer’s U.S. Open, and what he would do with Augusta’s 13th hole. The crew also talks Old Man Golf Media popping back up, a potential Justine Reed burner account, and the Honda Classic.
The death of golf stuffiness is upon us, and Brooks Koepka has championed the cause. We breakdown Brooks’ recent GQ profile (we loved it) and Tiger’s teleconference reliving the 2019 Masters. Then, we hit you with a 10-minute excerpt of prolific course architect Gil Hanse chatting with Riggs. The full interview will be in next Tuesday’s show, but you get a taste of what it took to reshape the 16th hole, thumbprint green at Sleepy Hollow.
Patrick Reed is... Good?

Patrick Reed is... Good?


Patrick Reed, amidst plenty of controversy, wins in Mexico. Does he deserve the hate he gets? What about Bryson? We discuss this, the NHL trade deadline (not a hockey podcast), the Premier Golf League, and MUCH more.
Scott Brown (26:30), fresh off a T2 finish at Riviera, joins the show. He tells the story of making an ace while playing with Tiger, playing Palmetto with Kiz & the Fore Play crew in November, and being in contention down the stretch at Riviera. Then Elliot and Adam (69:10) from Bridgestone join to discuss working with Tiger to create his new golf ball, what Tiger likes and doesn’t like, and what distance regulations could mean for ball manufacturers going forward.
David Feherty (35:23) joins us in studio for a phenomenal and funny chat about a myriad of topics. We get into the behind the scenes of a broadcast, the problems with having a hot mic button, and David’s thoughts on players from Rory to Reed to Tiger and more. The crew also talks Genesis Invitational coverage, Riviera, and Adam Scott’s VERY impressive win.
Alfonso Ribeiro, the famous actor, and host twists our brains into pretzels with his analytical approach to golf. He breaks down what it’s like playing the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, working with Kevin Na’s swing coach, and giving us advice on how mentally to better our own games. He also discusses bringing that analytic approach to his career. Afterward, we ponder microchips inside golf balls to help players find their ball.
Frankie’s a mess and Commissioner Riggs announces Pinehurst will host the 2020 Barstool Classic Championship. He and Lurch recap a weekend reconnaissance trip in North Carolina. In Headlines, Tom Brady quote tweeted a Fore Play tweet to roast Peyton Manning, Tiger’s hosting at Riviera this week (where he’s never won), Phil and Spieth showing signs of improvement, and Rory’s back to no. 1 in the world.
Analyst Brandel Chamblee checks in with us to talk pretty much everything. We discuss Patrick Reed’s cease & desist letter, Brooks Koepka vs Rory McIlroy, Tiger’s current swing being perhaps his best, the new distance report, Phil’s game and MUCH more.
When you finish a hole, do you say “I made 6” or “I shot 6”? We debate, and things get heated. We also react to yet another incredibly candid interview from Rory McIlroy, Tony Finau coming up short yet again, and Spieth missing the cut in Phoenix. Lurch details his weekend playing Harding Park, Pasatiempo, and running just an awful Instagram story.

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!
