    Takeaways from the 2024 PGA Championship

    Following an eventful weekend of major championship golf, Garrett, Andy, and Joseph offer takeaways from the 2024 PGA Championship. They discuss Xander Schauffele's win and how his career arc illuminates current dynamics in the professional game. They also discuss Valhalla Golf Club's performance as a tournament venue, with Garrett offering some devil's-advocate rebuttals to the critiques of the course's design and setup that Fried Egg Golf has offered this past week. Finally, they touch on Bryson DeChambeau's emergence as a people's hero (and how that image-making might be facilitated by the division between LIV and the PGA Tour) as well as the PGA of America's future venue selections and setup conundrums.

    Valhalla Insights, Rory Diagnoses, and Other Lessons Learned from the 2014 PGA Championship

    One day away from the start of the 2024 PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club, Garrett and Joseph jump on the pod to discuss the insights they gleaned from rewatching the 2014 PGA Championship, the last major held at Valhalla. They chat about how the tournament played in 2014 and how this week's PGA Championship may play similarly or differently. Most of the conversation focuses on the golf course, both from a design and a playing style perspective, but there's also some discussion/dissection of 2014 champion Rory McIlroy's game, strategic approach, and mental attitude. The episode closes with thoughts on which players stand to benefit from this week's setup and conditions.

From the moment she found out she was getting the job to playing the first rounds on the course, she discusses the most difficult parts of the project, how the role of lead associate differs from shaper, and the holes she thinks will be the most talked about.

Informatively brilliant

I’ve been a listener for a few years and I can guarantee that if you love the nitty gritty of golf that you’ll love this Pod.

When listened to in parallel with the Shotgun Start, you’ll have enough content to get you through the week.

Great stuff.

On the pulse of professional golf and golf architecture

A must listen if you’re a golf fan. These guys have fantastic ideas and in hindsight have predicted a lot of the downfall that has occurred in professional Golf over the past six months (they’ve been talking about it for 5+ years). If only someone at the tour was listening to them maybe some of this could’ve been avoided. In fact, I wonder if anyone at the tour has actually reached out to Andy or Garrett or Brendan to ask their opinion on any of the issues facing the tour? Or conversely, has Andy or Garrett or Brendan reached out to them offering some advice? Great work gang, keep it up
