Greatest Golf Podcast of All Time

As far as golf podcasts go, this one is hands down the GOAT. Mike and Eli weave an incredible journey on their paths to trying to become scratch golfers. They way they tell it makes you feel like you are listening and following along to one of your friends. It’s a golf podcast for the common man with tons of laughs along the way for both their triumphs and their struggles. They aren’t interviewing tour players or golf course architects. To me that’s what makes it so great. It’s the game of golf that I know and play. Sure I listen to the other interview style podcasts and watch the PGA tour, but this is exactly what the game of golf means to me, trying to get better at such a frustrating, yet beautiful game. Kudos to Mike and Eli for making my hour long drives feel like nothing and for all the laughs along the way. Oh, and #teamPolarBear all day.

Simply the best

Worst thing about the pod is catching up and waiting for new episodes. #LGLG

Was that a tree? ,

Came late to the party.

A buddy shared this podcast with me a few weeks ago. I took his advice and started at season 1. Today, I caught up to real time. I can’t decide if this is the saddest or happiest day of my life (don’t worry honey, the wedding is still in the running for happiest). Do yourself a favor, if you love golf, consider the 90s-early 2000s as the Mecca of your adolescent to young adult years, and think golf is the best sport, period-Listen to this show. But do yourself a favor, start with Season 1, episode 1. Let’s go, let’s go.
