Alex Myers of Golf Digest is making his first appearance on the show, and I know what you're thinking: IS HE READY FOR THE FIRE PIT?! Good news: He is! We talk about Rory's big win at the Wells Fargo, and just why we find the guy so darn appealing. Will anyone be his Rafa—the guy who emerges as a true competitive rival? Could it be Jordan? Our conversation ranges from stat nerdery to history to tennis to NBA basketball. All of it, of course, loops back to our favorite game. Don't miss this one!
Kyle Porter is BACK, and he's ready to bring the red hot heat. Kyle wrote a great piece on Rickie Fowler, and the way we as fans and pundits tend to overreact to the results of a single weekend, so we start there before moving on to Rory McIlroy. Kyle and I rank the top 7 Rory Rivalries, and the results may shock and appall you. Elsewhere, I encourage people to harass a certain Twitter account, and things get surprisingly philosophical as Kyle and I discuss the nature of life, fandom, language, and so much more. Tune in, my friends, or be left behind at the water cooler like a DWEEB.
We've gone official! D.J. Piehowski of the PGA Tour is our guest today, and we're talking all about Rickie Fowler's thrilling win at the Players Championship over Sergio Garcia and Kevin Kisner. What does this mean for the game? Is Rickie still overrated? Is he the next Tiger? Is he already better than Tiger? It's a red-hot session of scorching takes, and D.J. also tells us a little about what it's like to work for the Tour. If you miss this episode, you're not a real golf fan, and you might not even be a real person.
We're back and chomping at the bit as Ryan Ballengee stops by to discuss his career in golf media, the pains of getting older, and also a bit of GOLF: Players Championship, Jordan, Rory, Horschel, Matsuyama, Tiger, and all your favorites. Literally every single one of your favorites, of all time. It's a spine-tingler, we DO NOT recommend listening alone!
There are only two topics on the table today: Stephanie Wei's credential revocation, and Rory McIlroy's big win at the Match Play Championship. Enjoy!
It's fight night in America! Keegan Bradley, Miguel Angel Jimenez, and a caddie called Pepsi mixed it up at the Match Play Championship, and Chris Solomon (NoLayingUp.com) and I are here to sort through the rubble. This is a shorter, emergency podcast, and we're mostly talking Keegan-Miguel, but we share some of our own golf war stories and make predictions for the rest of the match play bracket. This episode is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL.
