Spooky Season
Rory wins and, naturally, delivers several fantastic quotes. Rickie contends. Morikawa threatens. Also — it’s spooky season. Do you like to be scared? Terrified?

Historical Disagreement
Riggs takes the squad on a historical journey looking into the rules of golf over the past 800 years. Some old school rules blow our minds and make us consider bringing them back.

We also get an update on Frankie’s elbow (not good), Tiger Woods, and more.

Work Decks, Yuck
We have a solution for the Tour Championship and FedEx Cup playoffs format, and we’re enlisting Lurch to create a deck we can send to the PGA Tour.

Following the weekend, there’s much to talk about — Cantlay wins the FedEx Cup; Europe wins the Solheim Cup; Koepka withdraws from the Portnoy match; Bryson likens himself to Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk; the crew is soon visiting Bandon Dunes; we’ve got our next Fore Man Scramble match; and much more.
Sep 07, 2021
Tempers Flare
As contentious of a show as we’ve had all year. Fellow podcaster vs fellow podcaster. Man vs man. Is the Tour Championship scoring stupid or does it make sense? Are the analogies for it good or bad? Is the Tour lame for banning fans from yelling “Brooksie?” Is Riggs a turncoat for threatening to root for Europe if Kiz isn’t on the U.S. Ryder Cup team? Is he a coward for reaching for ways out of it? Is golfer tracker Twitter clouded by drama? This and much, much more in a long, heated show.
Sep 02, 2021

Behind The Greens 3: “Have you ever heard a dying goose?”

The call-in shows are back and, as always, they deliver. We've got caddies for Michael Jordan and multiple presidents; we've got caddies from St. Andrews; we've got irrigation experts; we've got a girls high school golf coach with stories for the ages and, of course, we have death (geese). You're going to want to giddy up for this one!

PLAYERS takes; Jon Rahm’s lakes; Rory rakes

The PLAYERS is over and we've got the whole squad's reactions. Rory gets the “bugaboo” off his back; Rahm goes full psycho; Tiger melts down but looks healthy so all's good; Kiz posts a classic Kisner finish; Furyk nearly steals the show. In From The Gallery, we debate the market value of Tiger's Scotty putter, and, if our lives were on the line, which one pro we'd pick to make birdie for us!!!

The Buzzword Scientist

It's an OG show as we take several From The Galleries and get hyped for The PLAYERS. We weigh in on the new PLAYERS trophy and theme song, on Tiger's new putting coach, on Jason Day's response to trolling, and on hardo golf twitter. In FTG we debate using beat up Pro V1s vs brand new crap balls and how to handle a partner who's terrified of the back nine (which is apparently a real thing)!!!

Paul Azinger: "Being paired with Tiger is just different"

NBC lead analyst, major champion, and 2008 U.S. Ryder Cup captain Paul Azinger joins the show for the first time (46:45). In a very honest chat, Zinger discusses his true thoughts on Rory's closing struggles, what it's really like taking Johnny Miller's seat in the booth, what it's like being paired with Tiger Woods, and what type of carnage he's hoping for at The PLAYERS Championship. Before Zinger hops on, we breakdown the best Notah Begay x Tiger Woods puns and go through headlines: Tiger arrives at Sawgrass; Molinari is a savage; does it really matter what anyone calls The PLAYERS Championship?????

The Exorcism of Barstool Trent

Pressing questions right out of the gate. What's the latest word on Tiger's “neck injury”? Did the USGA really just “upon further review” themselves on JT? Plus, What's Up Doc provides maybe the funniest moment in Fore Play history... and an accusation that Riggs submits emails about himself. Last but not least, From The Gallery delivers more hypotheticals...

“Guys, I think we’re off topic...”

Frankie is back, Lurch stays on, and we react to the unprecedented local caddies show, then breakdown Tiger's week, Holmes' pace of play, JT's disappointment, and Spieth's shocking 81. Hilarity ensues as we get wildly off topic FAST!!!!
