Historical Disagreement

Historical Disagreement

2021-10-1401:57:251

Riggs takes the squad on a historical journey looking into the rules of golf over the past 800 years. Some old school rules blow our minds and make us consider bringing them back. In news, Bryson changed his putting based on the study of where one strikes the dimple on a golf ball… and Frankie is all for it. We also get an update on Frankie’s elbow (not good), Tiger Woods, and more.
Alfonso Ribeiro (01:14:13) joins the show for the third time. Again, he’s incredible, insightful, and full of great stories. But most importantly, our very own Trent Ryan has proven to be a national heartthrob. He stole the hearts of every female in Boston with his live show appearances last week… complete with his luggage. We discuss Trent’s “pop,” new footage of Tiger Woods, Frankie’s wounded arm, Sungjae’s victory, Wolff’s solid play, JR Smith’s college golf debut, Phil improving to 3/4 on the Senior Circuit, and much more.
Sam Burns and Colt Knost

Sam Burns and Colt Knost

2021-10-0701:52:42

Guests galore. First, we’re joined by Sub-Par host, former PGA Tour player, and roaster of Lurch, Colt Knost (00:11:37). We discuss the Bud Cauley incident, the MJ lunch photo, get some great stories, and find some true common ground. Then, as we’re on with Colt, Sam Burns (00:52:45) joins the show fresh off winning the Sanderson Farms. We discuss favorite restaurants on the road, hunting, LSU football, pizza reviews, Trent’s bunker woes, and much more.
Name Drop

Lurch had lunch with MJ (like, the real Jumpman 23) and watched football at Justin Thomas’ house. Frankie had surgery. Riggs gave a speech at Oakmont’s famed SWAT party. Date Trent emerged and may permanently replace Trent Ryan. All this plus Bones is leaving TV to caddie full-time for JT, Bubba and Ted Scott split up, Bryson shined at the World Long Drive and much more.
Zach Johnson (00:20:08) and Entourage creator Doug Ellin (00:59:18) join the show. First, Trent confesses his undying fandom to fellow Cedar Rapids native, 2-time major winner and recent Ryder Cup vice-captain Zach Johnson. We discuss Iowa, the famous eyes open Claret Jug picture, and get details on what it’s like on the team earpieces during the Ryder Cup. Then, Doug Ellin joins to discuss the differences between Hollywood then and now, how Entourage is received today and his thoughts on it, and tells stories about he and the crew through the years.
Slaughter by the Water

Slaughter by the Water

2021-09-2801:36:172

USA dominates the Ryder Cup. Riggs was as wrong as any human being could be. We break it all down live from the 18th green at Whistling Straits.
Dylan Dethier, senior writer for Golf.com and Golf Mag, joins us live from Whistling Straits to break down Ryder Cup prep. Who’s looking sharp? Who’s not? What differs this week from any other week? How does it affect the players? Plus, Frankie & Trent continue to grill Riggs on his European “fandom.”
Emotions are high. Tempers are flaring. Expectations are high. It’s Ryder Cup week and we’re here for it. Frankie and Trent confront Riggs about his European fandom. Riggs aggressively defends himself. The squad goes through possible pairings, possible outcomes, possible drama, course setup, captains’ strategy and much more. It’s here. It’s time.
The Bandon trip continues. Reviews of Sheep Ranch and Old MacDonald in severe wind. Caddies Dillon & Jared join us. We rank the Bandon courses. Plus, Brooks Koepka has some concerning comments about the Ryder Cup. Paul Azinger responds. Bryson’s hands are “wrecked” from World Long Drive prep. Much to discuss.
Bandon Dunes, Part One:

Bandon Dunes, Part One:

2021-09-1401:52:11

Live from Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Oregon. We’ve played Bandon Trails, Pacific Dunes, and The Preserve, and we lived to talk about it: 40mph winds, spectacular views, lost golf clubs, links conditions, exposing audio, elite drones, gaping holes, spreading apart, and much more.
Kevin Kisner is not on the Ryder Cup team. Riggs is now a European Ryder cup fan, and Kirk Minihane (00:05:29) joins Trent and Frankie to grill him on his stance, his plan, and his disloyalty. How will he hold up if USA wins? Will he try to join the celebration? Will he continue his European fandom if Europe wins? Is he rooting for Sergio Garcia to beat Brooks Koepka down the stretch if that determines the 2021 Ryder Cup? Then we’re joined by former top-10 tennis player in the world, Mardy Fish (01:15:13), who takes us through his new Netflix documentary and what it was like competing against Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, and others.
Work Decks, Yuck

Work Decks, Yuck

2021-09-0702:06:41

We have a solution for the Tour Championship and FedEx Cup playoffs format, and we’re enlisting Lurch to create a deck we can send to the PGA Tour. This, naturally, leads to a discussion on work decks and the misery of corporate lexicon. Following the weekend, there’s much to talk about — Cantlay wins the FedEx Cup; Europe wins the Solheim Cup; Koepka withdraws from the Portnoy match; Bryson likens himself to Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk; the crew is soon visiting Bandon Dunes; we’ve got our next Fore Man Scramble match; and much more.
Tempers Flare

Tempers Flare

2021-09-0202:15:351

As contentious of a show as we’ve had all year. Fellow podcaster vs fellow podcaster. Man vs man. Is the Tour Championship scoring stupid or does it make sense? Are the analogies for it good or bad? Is the Tour lame for banning fans from yelling “Brooksie?” Is Riggs a turncoat for threatening to root for Europe if Kiz isn’t on the U.S. Ryder Cup team? Is he a coward for reaching for ways out of it? Is golfer tracker Twitter clouded by drama? This and much, much more in a long, heated show.
What a playoff. Bryson falls to Patrick Cantlay and there’s plenty of chatter to go around. “Patrick, stop walking please.” Bryson allegedly having a confrontation with a fan post-round. Cantlay draining putts. Rory throwing clubs. In East Lake talk, Riggs finds himself on a rare island discussing the Tour Championship scoring format. Finally, Brandon Wu (01:30:12) joins the show to discuss life on the Korn Ferry Tour, what it means graduating to the PGA Tour, and much more.
Big show, 3 guests. Collin Morikawa (00:47:32) (the 2021 Open champion), Anna Nordqvist (01:01:09) (the 2021 Women’s Open champion), and James Piot (01:25:36) (the 2021 U.S. Amateur champion) all join the show. How is Collin feeling about wearing a suit to the Northern Trust per Frankie’s recommendation and what was it like battling it out down the stretch at Royal St. George’s? How proud is Anna after holding off an army of contenders this past Sunday at Carnoustie? How is James handling his newfound U.S. Amateur fame, and what’s it like from his end being a Barstool Athlete? This and we react to Tony Finau finally getting it done at Liberty National.
Patrick Peterson (01:35:27) of the Minnesota Vikings joins us to talk training camp, golf, and providing kids in need with shopping sprees. Before Patrick joins, we discuss the dangerous chaos that is a PGA Tour pro-am, the lack of accountability facing meteorologists, debate the absurdity of Frankie mixing cereals, and Riggs expresses concern over Bryson competing in the World Long Drive the day after the Ryder Cup.
Scottie Scheffler (0:33:02) & Wyndham Clark (01:12:55) join the show live from our set overlooking 18 at Liberty National. Scottie talks his history with us, with following Barstool, getting mad on the course, and being a top-20 player in the world. Wyndham talks about how he and his caddie settle on yardages, how serious talks became with The Bachelor, getting competitive games with other pros, and having style as a golfer. We also breakdown our interactions at the Northern Trust with Phil Mickelson, Joel Dahmen, Harry Higgs, Keith Mitchell, Abraham Ancer and more.
Kevin Kisner Full Send

Kevin Kisner Full Send

Kiz joins the show for 90 minutes after winning the Wyndham Championship in a 6-man playoff. 4th career win. Over a million dollar Wad Wednesday coming. Spirits are high as we discuss the absurdity of the 6-man playoff, players stepping in other player’s lines, the leg kick twirl after stuffing one in the playoff, what the Kevin Kisner Golf Club would look like, Kiz’s Wendy’s order post victory, the upcoming Kisner-Riggs Barstool Classic team, and MUCH more. Big time show.
Pat Perez & The Blind Golfer

Pat Perez & The Blind Golfer

2021-08-1202:40:101

2+ hours with our dear friend Pat Perez. We discuss: hitting fans with errant tee shots, where the Olympics fall in the importance of golf titles, Augusta keepsakes, Steve Williams stories, a rematch vs the Fore Man Scramble at Silverleaf, Pat’s new outlook on his golf game and on life in general, and much more. Plus we’re joined by Jeremy Poincenot, the legally blind golfer who recently became a single digit handicap and may have to take on our very own Frankie Borrelli in a golf match. Packed, packed show.

A lot of appreciating going on. We appreciate Erin Hills, JJ Watt, Wisconsin golf in general, Abe Ancer, Barstool Sports and Hockeyfest, and good golf shots. We’ve also got Bryson rattled over “Brooksy,” Nelly Korda being unstoppable, some Messi soccer talk, and much more.

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!
