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. 
Part I of my England debrief goes deep into the links courses played on this trip (Royal Lytham, Royal Birkdale, West Lancashire, Formby, Formby Ladies, Hillside, & Southport & Ainsdale). We talk cost, the highs and lows of these courses, what makes each one special, and England golf in general. This was a dream trip to a very special part of the golf world, and can't wait to make it back to the region. Stay tuned for Part II which will include the Heathland courses played on the trip. 
We might be a year out from the 2020 Ryder Cup, but Soly and DJ are in a Ryder Cup mood after road tripping around the midwest and visiting the last three Ryder Cup venues, as well as Whistling Straits, the site of the 2020 event. We chat about our first impressions of Steve Stricker and Padraig Harrington, and you'll hear the best clips from the press conference within this episode. A lot more content to come from this road trip, but we had a blast hashing out some thoughts on golf's greatest event. 
Cameron Champ wins his second PGA Tour title at the Safeway. Soly and DJ Pie discuss his game, how it translates to the PGA Tour, the crazy story of his grandfather, the marketing behind him, and a lot more. We also discuss Bryson's comments, the driver testing findings, Rory's comments at the Dunhill, and the Kris Ventura incident. Lastly, Soly sits down with 17-year-old Akshay Bhatia (45:38 mark) to discuss his transition into professional golf, what his first few PGA Tour events have been like, George Gankas, getting a driver's license, and a lot more. 
Jim Wagner has been the lead associate with the Hanse Golf Design company for decades, and he joined us live from the Pinehurst Brewery to discuss his career, trends in golf course design, renovation vs. restoration, their work at Pinehurst, and a lot more. Jim is a great story teller and entertainer, and there are many, many laughs in this one. Thanks a ton to Jim for making the trip down, and to Pinehurst for helping us host a terrific event. 
JT is back to discuss his 2019 year, the new Tour Championship format, what $15 million means to him, how many PGA Tour wins he would trade for a major, his spat with the USGA, the drama around the Ryder Cup pairings, the upcoming Presidents Cup, and a ton more. This one was a lot of fun, and JT doesn't shy away from any of the topics. 
Team Europe wins the Solheim Cup in Scotland, and we discuss Suzann Pettersen insanely clutch putt (and immediate retirement), the Korda sisters, Lexi Thompson, Georgia Hall, and everything else from the week. We also discuss Danielle Kang's comments, the overreaction, team events, Joaquin Niemann's win at the Greenbrier, Kevin Chappell's insane route to a T47, and some listener questions. 
Recorded earlier this year at the KPMG Women's PGA, here is our interview with Mel Reid. She tells about her experience coming out as gay, the tragic death of her mom, golf in England, the Solheim Cup, snowboarding, and a lot more. Mel is a great hang and an easy player to root for. Thanks for the time!
Part II of our Ireland Trip includes Tralee, Carne, County Sligo (Rosses Point), and Enniscrone. We make our way north and play Arnold Palmer's gem, then head much further north to get off the beaten track and tack advantage of some tremendous treks across Sligo. The dunes in this leg of the trip were some of the biggest we've ever seen, and the day we got at Carne was truly memorable. Thanks to everyone for tuning in, stay tuned for Season 4 of Tourist Sauce, coming soon!

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!! .
