2020, Week 9 - Lance Ringler + Honda Picks


College golfers are becoming professional winners quicker than ever. How do we explain that, and how do we measure success. Nobody has covered college golf better, or with more passion, than Lance Ringler of Golfweek. We talk strengths of the college game (men and women), the Hovland-Wolff-Morikawa class, and then transition to the pro game for some chatter on the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings. Who is overrated or underrated.
Honda Classic Picks at 38:00

2020, Week 8 - Adam Scott Stories, Mailbag and Mexico Picks


Three flights in four days, two tournaments and a little in between has the host running ragged this week. No guest, so Will recaps Riviera and shares some anecdotal stories on why Adam Scott is a great dude. In addressing some user questions, what stars will regress in 2020? That segues nicely into picks from Mexico City.

2020, Week 7 - Nick Sherburne of Club Champion + Genesis Picks


We study all of this data in golf to understand the professional game, but all of the tools the pros use is readily available to help us improve as golfers too. Club fitting is more scientific than ever. One of the best at it is Club Champion, expanding throughout the country to help golfers get in the right equipment. Nick Sherburne is the company's founder and master fitter. He joins to talk about the data that is collected, the most important part of the club, comparing Ams to Pros and more. Genesis Invitational picks at 40:00.

2020, Week 6 - Ryan Ballengee on Everything


Golf is officially gonzo already in February. With the dust still having not settled from details about the Premier Golf League leaking, the joint-authored report on the distance growth in golf adds another layer to the conversation. Ryan Ballengee of Golf News Net has done deep research on both. He joins to talk the realties of each, we offer our own predictions and solutions, not to mention Pebble Beach picks at the 50:00 mark.

2020, Week 5 - Mike Thomas + Phoenix Picks


Justin Thomas is a consensus top 5 player in golf right now. He is arguably the best all-around player in the game. He has had one swing coach his entire life, his father, Mike. Justin entrusts his statistical analysis to his father. How has he adapted as an old-school pro? How does it impact course strategy? What is important and what isn't? We have a thorough conversation about it all. Plus, how to navigate a star-studded field in Phoenix. Picks at 36:00 mark.
