Forget the rest, try the best! NLU sets the standard for Golf Podcasts. Suitably ‘sweary’ in small doses, it shines the harsh light of truth on everything including TV coverage and Jay Monahan as well as some of the more obnoxious players… looking right at you Bryson. 98.4% of the guests are excellent. Pls get Elk back for part 2 and Peter Kostis anytime Keep up the great work gents
