Fresh, funny discussions about the world of golf from the guys at
274 Episodes
Hall of Famer Lanny Wadkins joins us to talk about his decorated career, the 1977 PGA Championship, some Ryder Cup stories, being let go by CBS, broadcasting, and so much more. We also discuss the evolution of technology in golf, the harrowing 1979 Players Championship at Sawgrass Country Club, Arnold Palmer, and what it was like being a young professional in the 1970's. Thanks a ton to Lanny for the time, this is one of my favorites. 
Cam Smith wins the Sony, Brendan Steele gets relief, the Korn Ferry is mic'd up, and a lot else as we recap a fun week in golf. We also discuss Patrick Reed's bizarre cease and desist, the AT&T moves on from Trinity Forest, and Charlie Woods makes the news cycle. We also chat with Lee Rainwater from the USGA on the new World Handicap System, the challenges of it, and the thought process on the changes. 
At the Altus Performance Center at Trinity Forest, we tracked down Cameron McCormick and Corey Lundberg to discuss the golf swing, how they teach it, Cameron's first time meeting Jordan Spieth, how close Jordan is to being back, how they relay information to their professionals, and so much more. We've really enjoyed working with these guys over the last year, and pumped to get the chance to pick their brains. Thanks to both Cameron and Corey for the time. 
The chaos is here! 2020 starts with a bang as JT edges out Xander and Reed in a playoff as Reed gets heckled, the wind blows, and it got darker than our cameras made it look. We recap the crazy playoff, Reed getting treated with kid gloves, JT's nerves, Xander's wild three-putt, and everything else from a thrilling opening weekend. 
It's a two hour holiday special! We've compiled some of our favorite clips and moments from our 2019 interviews into one episode. Guests include Steve Elkington, Jason Bohn, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Scott Van Pelt, Max Homa, Joel Dahmen, Colin Montgomerie, and many, many more. Thanks to all of our guests from this past year, and to everyone for listening. See you again in 2020. 
An impromptu episode with the return of long time guest Kyle Porter, and we talk broadly and in detail about the wild year that was 2019. From Rory, to Brooks, to Tiger, Bryson, and everything in between - plus the obligatory Ryder Cup implications and a look ahead to 2020. We also take a ton of listener questions, and think back on how much things have changed in golf in the last five years. 
The 2019 Presidents Cup delivered an unexpected explosion of content as the US came from behind during Sunday's singles matches to win the cup 16-14 over a feisty International squad. In addition to the breakdown of the matches, Royal Melbourne,TV coverage, and Tiger's 3-0 performance as playing captain we do our best to recap Patrick Reed's interactions with the crowd, Reed's caddie getting suspended for an altercation with a fan, the Tour's response to the entire Reed drama and much more. 
The mega episode! We recorded a full Presidents Cup preview last week, but recorded an extra (emergency) portion regarding Patrick Reed's rules incident at the Hero World Challenge. We discuss how the PGA Tour reacted to it, whether or not the "cheat" word applies, and everything else around a really sticky situation. We then gauge our excitement for the Presidents Cup (23:00), go through some trivia, and answer listener questions. Lastly, we chat with Royal Melbourne member Matthew Mollica (1:21:00) to discuss the historic course and what to expect from it this week. 
We've all seen Top 100 lists. We've all dreamed of playing them all. Simon Holt has actually done, and he's here to tell us about traveling to the ends of the Earth to become the first Brit to play the Top 100 golf courses in the world. He explains to us how he got on all of the courses, his personal rankings, how the Golf Magazine Top 100 comes together, courses he believe should be on the list, and a ton more. 
Harry Higgs joins us to discuss his rookie year on the PGA Tour, competing for the title in Bermuda, and his fast rise from the PGA Tour LatinoAmerica to the big leagues. He discusses what changed in his game, swing feels, making fake grudges against players to motivate himself, and so much more. Harry is gonna be an extremely popular player on tour. 
Tyler Duncan wins the RSM, and we wrap up the Fall Series discussing the amazing Brendon Todd Run, the conclusion of the LPGA season, Jon Rahm's win in Dubai, the Presidents Cup, and a lot more. 
From the deepest depths of the wilderness, to getting into Korn Ferry Finals, to earning a Tour card, to winning on the PGA Tour, and winning AGAIN on the PGA Tour, Brendon Todd breaks down the ups and downs of his last five years. From developing a severe yip, hitting it off the planet, nearly getting into the pizza business, and everything he did to figure it out, this one is a wild ride. His perspective on this is incredible, and we're super appreciative of his time and willingness to get it all on record. The outcome is one of my favorite episodes we've ever done. 
Billy Andrade joins to chat about transitioning out of golf, into media, and back into golf on the Champions Tour, staying at Larry David's house, the dramatic first meeting he had with Joe Pesci, and a ton more. We thoroughly enjoyed this run of conversations with some of the most interesting guys on the PGA Tour Champions, and look forward to doing many more of these in the future. 
Paul Goydos and Kevin Sutherland join the pod to discuss their transitions from the PGA Tour to competing on the Champions Tour, shooting 59 in a competitive round, course setups, getting fined and a wide variety of other topics. 
Monty joins the podcast to talk about life on the Champions Tour, his relationship with the US and how that has evolved over the years, dealing with hecklers, regrets he has in how he had done things in the past, and a lot more. 
(Best) friend of the pod Kevin Van Valkenburg from ESPN joins to chat about some offseason stuff, including five things we want to see happen in 2020, three things we each wish we never said, Tiger's win at the Zozo, and some excellent listener questions. Thanks as always to KVV for the time, this was a fun one. 
The Cat has eternal life. Tiger Woods wins the inaugural Zozo Championship over Hideki Matsuyama, and Soly and DJ discuss his path to 82 wins, their favorite wins in that time period, the Kush, Bubba's crazy drive, the Skins Game, and a bunch more from the Zozo. We also discuss the news coming out of CBS and what that means for the future of golf on TV. 
Brad Faxon joins to talk about working with Rory McIlroy on his putting, his playing career, what makes a great putter, and a hell of a lot more discussion on putting. We also discuss his love of golf course architecture, the Ryder Cup, broadcasting, and so much more. We barely scratched the surface with this one, and we look forward to having him back in the future. 
Bill Coore joins us to discuss how he got into the golf course design business, what intrigued him about Pete Dye, centerline bunkers, width, Sand Hills, Bandon Trails, Pinehurst No. 2, Old Town Club, and many other courses. We also went into detail on the reaction to Trinity Forest, how it has played differently than it was designed to play, designing courses for professionals, and a lot more. Bill was extremely gracious with his time, and we hope to have him back again soon. 
In Part II of his England debrief, Soly breaks down the Heathland courses he played on his trip to England (Holinwell, Walton Heath, Sunningdale, Berkshire, and St. George's Hill). He talks about his newfound appreciation for heathland golf, what makes each of these courses special, some of the best holes, the English golf vibe, and a lot more. Thanks to everyone who sent in questions and feedback on the trip.

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!! .
