We’re going into rapid fire mode for our round 2 recap podcast. With a bunched leaderboard and plenty of firepower stalking we have no clue who will win at Sedgefield.

Finally we wrap with a quick look at Brooks Koepka and Justin Rose who will not be playing this weekend.

It’s a three-way tie at the top of the leaderboard in Greensboro, NC. Greg DuCharme and Mark Immelman break it all down on today’s First Cut Podcast.

Established winners Webb Simpson and Patrick Reed are lurking in the wings. We look at their opening round and what they need to do in order to close the gap (10:27). After the break we get into some strugglers on Thursday. Brooks Koepka, Jordan Spieth and Justin Rose all failed to get solid rounds going at a golf course yielding low scores (15:15).

It’s a packed house as the crew runs through our top storylines entering the final event of the regular season. We begin with a discussion of the playoff implications this week. Even though promotion and relegation on the PGA Tour has been halted for 2020, just how crucial is it to secure a solid spot ahead of the FedEx Cup Playoffs (2:11)?Mark Immelman will be on the call in Greensboro. He dives into the course, it’s history and what we can expect from players on the finishing holes (9:51).

Collin Morikawa is victorious at the PGA Championship. We’re breaking it all down with Rick Gehman, Kyle Porter and Greg DuCharme. We start off by talking about the man of the hour himself Collin Morikawa. Just how impressive is this major victory from Collin and how many more do we think will come (1:30)? Dustin Johnson as a runner-up once again, will he ever hoist a major championship trophy again (22:41)? Tiger Woods had a rollercoaster week. He told Amanda Balionis we will see him in the “future”, how will he play then (31:44)? Brooks Koepka was actually in the tournament on Sunday. Where did he fall short in his PGA Championship title defense (39:10)?

We’re through 36 holes of the #PGAChamp and of course Haotong Li is your solo leader at TPC Harding Park. On this episode WeChat about Haotong’s amazing Friday performance and whether or not his -8 is the “real lead” (0:50). Chasing him down are a heap of world class players just two shots back. Among them is Brooks Koepka who battled knee issues throughout his round. Are we pressing the panic button on BK (6:57)? Tiger Woods had struggles on the greens Friday. Are we feeling confident in him going into the weekend (25:40)? Rickie Fowler wants an action packed day to make you forget he stubbed a chip to miss the cut by one stroke.

The marine layer has lifted, Jason Day & Brendon Todd have emerged as your PGA Championship first round leaders. Let’s chat about the Todd Father, J Day, Brooks, Bryson and Big Cat on our round 1 recap podcast. Jason Day is seemingly free of back issues Thursday, what worked for him (1:30). Future Player of the Year winner Brendon Todd is pulling his Todd Father antics again. How many strokes does he need heading into Sunday in order to win (8:32)? Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau have kept the golf world entertained with all kinds of Thursday shenanigans. Brooks is one shot off the lead and not so subtly jabbed at Beefy Bryson. Bryson broke his driver shaft en route to shooting 68. How will the golf world react the day they finally get paired together (14:46)? Tiger Woods carded a cool 68 this morning. It wasn’t all pretty but he’s under par after 18 holes in the book. Are we feeling bullish on Big Cat (26:44)? We wrap by looking ahead to Friday and dishing out some plays and fades for the second round of the 2020 PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park (33:00). ————————— 'First Cut' is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Castbox and wherever else you listen to podcasts.  Follow our hosts on Twitter: @KylePorterCBS, @mark_immelman, @RickRunGood, @therealGFD Check us out on YouTube for video podcasts and exclusive content, visit https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyeer4UbTK9pzZL9_hhCimA/ For more golf coverage from CBS Sports, visit https://www.cbssports.com/golf/ To hear more from the CBS Sports Podcast Network, visit https://www.cbssports.com/podcasts/ Learn more about your ad choices.

Major golf is here, Tiger Woods is on the links, all is right in the golf world. We start off with an in-depth breakdown of Tiger Woods and our expectations for Big Cat this week (2:05). Another major storyline this week is a myriad of stars entering in less than stellar form. Rory McIlroy hasn’t been great since the restart, Jon Rahm didn’t look great at WGC-FedEx St. Jude. Are these guys sneaky picks for the year’s first major championship (19:31)? Brooks Koepka is looking to three-peat at the PGA Championship. He is the co-favorite to win this week along with Justin Thomas. Are we falling into the trap yet again of ignoring the most dominant major player over the past two years (37:32)? Bryson DeChambeau enters with far more eyeballs that he usually carries into a major weekend. He’s never finished in the top 10 at a major championship. Is this the week that will change that (41:31)? After the break we’re going into our favorite betting picks with matchups (46:00), sleepers (55:11) and picks to win (57:26). We also touch base on our One and Done leans (58:31) and our best bets (60:10) for the 2020 PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park.  ————————— Want to win $4,000 without putting any of your own cash at stake?

What lead to his magnificent victory at TPC Southwind (6:18)? Brooks Koepka’s title defense ended with a runner-up finish. That’s pretty darn good considering his recent run of poor performances. How scary is Brooks heading into this stretch of majors and big-time golf events (14:11)? Mark and Kyle have been bickering in the group chat about Phil Mickelson of all people. We dive into it on the podcast (18:55). Rickie Fowler and Brendon Todd fell hard off the lead on Sunday. What do we make of these players who failed to win on Sunday (25:50)?

We’ve got a quick hitting round 2 recap podcast for you today! Brendon Todd is the 36-hole leader at TPC Southwind, why were we sleeping on the “Todd Father” and does he have the ability to sustain this success over the weekend (0:51)? Rickie Fowler’s campaign continued today. Is it possible we’ll see him hoist the Gary Player Cup on Sunday (6:58)? Brooks Koepka started the day in the lead after Thursday’s 62. A mediocre 1-over performance today dropped him back to the pack. Any reason to be concerned about the defending champ (10:52)? Finally, we wrap with our lookahead to Saturday.

Round one is in the books at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational! Brooks Koepka is your leader after posting a 62, matching his career-low on Tour. Is this further proof of the ‘Brooks only cares about big events/majors theory’ (1:20)? Rickie Fowler stood out on Thursday with an opening round 64. Considering his recent swing changes and tinkering, is this a sign of more improvements to come (8:53)? Bryson DeChambeau unsurprisingly found a way to entertain the golf world by requesting a free drop off a supposed animal burrowing hole. Watch the clip and chuckle as we breakdown his first round (15:32). After the break we wrap with players to eye for tomorrow’s second round which starts early due to inclement weather in the area (21:18).  ————————— 'First Cut' is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Castbox and wherever else you listen to podcasts.  Follow our hosts on Twitter: @KylePorterCBS, @mark_immelman, @RickRunGood, @therealGFD Check us out on YouTube for video podcasts and exclusive content, visit https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyeer4UbTK9pzZL9_hhCimA/ For more golf coverage from CBS Sports, visit https://www.cbssports.com/golf/ To hear more from the CBS Sports Podcast Network, visit https://www.cbssports.com/podcasts/ Learn more about your ad choices.

Michael Thompson is your 3M Open champion after an impressive 4-under 67 performance on Sunday. His second career PGA Tour victory didn’t come without hard work and sweat. Just how life changing is a win like this for a guy like Michael Thompson (0:57)? Adam Long finished solo second to earn a spot in the 2020 U.S. Open at Winged Foot. That’s pretty darn good considering he made the cut on the number, going 16-under over the weekend (14:12). Tony Finau finished T3 along with 8 other players.

The First Cut is back to recap the first round of the 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities. Greg starts the show with a little gloating as his sleeper, Richy Werenski, sits atop the leaderboard (1:29). Tony Finau had a great day after an awful weekend at the Memorial. Was his split with longtime caddie Greg Bodine and putting Boyd Summerhays on the bag a smart move (7:18)? Dustin Johnson stole the afternoon headlines when he withdrew with a back injury after a 7-over performance. He’s 23-over through his last 54 holes of PGA Tour competition. How concerned are we for Dustin as we head into the “Championship Stretch” (13:30)? We wrap by looking ahead to the second round of the 3M Open, who should you play and who should you fade (20:00)? ————————— 'First Cut' is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Castbox and wherever else you listen to podcasts.  Follow our hosts on Twitter: @KylePorterCBS, @mark_immelman, @RickRunGood, @therealGFD Check us out on YouTube for video podcasts and exclusive content, visit https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyeer4UbTK9pzZL9_hhCimA/ For more golf coverage from CBS Sports, visit https://www.cbssports.com/golf/ To hear more from the CBS Sports Podcast Network, visit https://www.cbssports.com/podcasts/ Learn more about your ad choices.
