Fresh, funny discussions about the world of golf from the guys at
388 Episodes
He's back ! Jason Bohn joins to take us through the harrowing tale of surviving a heart attack, why he was concerned about his pension at the time, how pensions work on the tour, what the PAC does, some inner workings of the tour, an absolutely epic Tiger story, and so much more. Could talk to these guy for hours and hours. 
Collin Morikawa wins the 2020 PGA Championship in iconic fashion. We break down the win, the ridiculous shot into 16, a wild Sunday, Koepka, DJ, Finau, Bryson, Rory, Spieth, Wolff, and all of the other key players from the week. We talk Harding Park, course setup, the usual segments, and of course some coverage takes (we make it wayyyy deep in the show before this hits). This may be our longest ep yet. A lot to talk about! 
DJ rises, Haotong fades, Scottie makes a move, Cam Champ makes it look easy, and everything else from Saturday at the PGA. Of course we go deep on Phil putting Faldo in a body bag in the booth, rip into an especially poor telecast, ESPN, the Women's Am, tomorrow's F1 race, and a lot more. 
Has Haotong Li left the golf course yet? We break down an eventful Friday of golf discussing Brooks, Haotong Li, Mike Lorenzo-Vera, Tiger, Rory, Spieth, DJ, Rickie's whiff, and a ton more. We make our picks going forward, talk how Harding Park is playing, and everything else you need to know before the weekend. 
This episode features our audio from our Thursday live show directly after coverage ended of the first round of the PGA Championship. We chat Jason Day, Brendon Todd, Bryson, Brooks, The Cat, Rory, Spieth, Rose, the rest of the leaderboard, Harding Park, ESPN+, CBS, and a ton more. More of these to come the rest of the week!
Major championship golf is back! We preview TPC Harding Park, who it's going to favor, who's going to win, who's not going to win, our DraftKings picks, the Big Cat, Rory, and so much more. On the back half, we chat with Curtis Strange who will be on the call this week for ESPN. We chat about major championships, his closest call at the PGA, and what he expects to see this week. A lot in this one, enjoy!
JT avenges the Workday, Brooks comes up short, Berger makes a run, some key action gets missed, and everything else from a busy week in golf. We talk about Bryson's ant situation, Bones' big week, the awkwardness with Phil, Danielle Kang winning on the LPGA Tour, and a ton more. 
About to tee it up in his first WGC, Joel Dahmen shares some insight as to what got him there, stats in golf, strategy, how often he thinks about money when he plays, course setups, shooting 58, not practicing for three months, Trackman, and so much more. This one has a ton in it and you're going to really enjoy it. 
Michael Thompson emerges from a crowded pack, Tony Finau does not, some coverage takes, Adam Long, an extensive PGL discussion, Richy Werenski, segments, and a ton more. 
Fox is no longer bringing us the US Open, and we're all pretty bummed about that. Joe Buck joins us to talk about the strides Fox made over the years, what it was like to break into golf coverage, and what this five year journey has been like for him as a golf junkie. We try to make sense of what went down behind the scenes, we breakdown what he learned from the analysts he worked with, and what he learned about covering golf. Really appreciate Joe's perspective on these topics, and hope this isn't the end of his appearances on this podcast. 
Jon Rahm blows away the field, and then he doesn't, and then he does again. We discuss a wild weekend at Muirfield Village, the weird rules situation down the stretch (13:00), Finau, Bryson (29:30), course setup (47:30), why this doesn't happen every week, segments (1:23:00), and a bunch of listener questions. This one went long and we're not even a little bit sorry about it. A whole lot of fun in this one. 
Tom Watson, Padraig Harrington, Iain Carter, and (for some reason) Soly spent an hour talking about The Open Championship, the Old Course, and "The Open for the Ages" which is airing this coming weekend. The R&A was kind enough to provide us with the audio from the conversation to put on our feed, so we're adding it as a bonus episode this week. It was a thrill to hear these two share their memories and perspective on the historic championship. They also break down how they play the Old Course, holes they can't crack, and what makes the Old Course great. 
Our man is back! Peter Kostis joins to talk a bit more about golf on TV, why streaming happens and what those days are like for announcers, and the next deal. He also details some stories from his time at Augusta, including a great Greg Norman story. We also pick his brain on his teaching, what Bryson is currently doing, technology, Formula 1, and a great Tiger story near the end. Thanks again to Peter for the time. 
JT's a killer, then he's not, then he is, then he's not. Collin Morikawa pulls off the come from behind win, and we cover everything from a wild weekend in golf. The coverage was a bit of an online disaster (35:30), Hovland fades on Sunday, Brooks vs. Bryson (44:30), a little different Muirifield Village setup, and a lot of other topics covered. This was a fun one. Let's do it again next week! 
Joseph Bramlett came out of the gates firing as golf started back up, finishing T2 and T3 in his first two Korn Ferry events. We chatted with him about his career path from Stanford, missing 4.5 years with back injuries (!), being the first black golfer to graduate from Q-School in 25 years, the current racial tensions in the United States, plus some great Tiger stories. He also shares his perspective on Bryson, what it would take for him to be a perennial player on the PGA Tour, and a ton more. Appreciate Joseph's perspective and willingness to speak on all topics. Would love to have him back some time. 
Bryson, Bryson, and some more Bryson. We discuss his dominate performance, what this means for the future of his career and the future of the game, and whether or not he's the best player in the world. We also make fun of his asinine comments during the week (33:00), Matt Wolff's strong showing (38:30), and our usual segments (48:00). 
Chris Kirk stepped away from the game in 2019 due to alcoholism and anxiety issues. Now sober, he reflects on his personal journey, when he realized he had a problem, how he addressed it, and how he rebounded to win on the Korn Ferry Tour a few weeks ago. We also discuss his 2014 season, not getting a Ryder Cup selection, a tee ball that traveled 55 yards, and a lot more. We sincerely appreciate Chris' openness and willingness to come on the podcast to discuss some difficult topics. 
DJ wins, Streelman makes a run, Phil has some moments, and the TPC doesn't bite back too hard. We discuss the course setup, DJ's drive on 18, the COVID "outbreak," how the tour moves forward, Daniel Summerhays' run at the Utah Championship, segments, and a whole lot more. We also react live on the air to the shocking news that NBC will be taking over the USGA contract from Fox, effective this fall (1:05:45). 
The Senior Managing Director, Championships for the USGA, John Bodenhamer joins us to walk us through how they came up with the exemption categories for the US Open, his first time setting up a US Open, how the schedule change will affect Winged Foot, defining "tough but fair," how the USGA recovered from a potential boycott of the US Open, and a lot more. 
Webb Simpson wins yet again, and the boys break down a fun week at Harbour Town that included a lot of birdies, a great run from Honest Abe (20:15), the first positive COVID test (50:00), some excellent television coverage (1:00:00), and a lot more. We discuss Harbour Town as a tournament venue, plus we react to the Nantz pod (1:04:00), as well as some segments (1:27:00). This was a fun one.

To your point about the equipment being too strong for the pros. The USGA should make the pros use equipment that doesnt go as far, just as MLB uses wooden bats. Keeps it fun for those up and coming, and challenges the best in the game properly.

Yer boýs took a hell of a beating. Ye ve been building up all year for a joyous victory. And got whipped! Time ye faced up that us tour events are set up too easy and that its not about as far as u hit it. Journeymen is an insult. Stop thinking small picture golf. As journalists you should view the europeans with more respect. ye ve won 1 in 5!! .
