    Ep 66 | Victories for Harrington & Hurley + KPMG Women’s PGA recap

    On this week’s edition of the podcast there was only one place to start as Padraig Harrington collected a fourth Major title of his career at the U.S. Senior Open. Harrington held off a strong Steve Stricker challenge to win his first USGA title by a single stroke, making it two Irish wins on the weekend after a first pro win for West Waterford’s Gary Hurley on the Alps Tour. There was also a top-10 for Stephanie Meadow at the KPMG Women’s PGA where slow play and Lexi Thompson was the talk of the weekend despite In Gee Chun’s victory. We also chat a near miss for Ruaidhri McGee on the Alps Tour and look ahead to this week’s Irish Open at Mount Juliet. As ever, we hope you enjoy the listen.

    Ep 65 | PGA Tour in financial warfare + Opportunity knocks at KPMG Women's PGA

    Ep 65 | PGA Tour in financial warfare + Opportunity knocks at KPMG Women's PGA

    On this week's edition of the podcast we analyse the PGA Tour's response to the LIV Golf threat and wonder where men's golf goes from here. As prize money increases, the rich are about the get richer but at what cost to those at the base of golf's earning pyramid? Speaking of money, the KPMG Women's PGA Championship announced a significant prize bump, doubling its purse to $9m ahead of this week's action at Congressional. We discuss the chances of Leona Maguire and Stephanie Meadow as Major opportunity knocks once more. As ever, there was plenty of lively debate. We hope you enjoy the listen, subscribe, and let us know what you think.

    Ep 64 | Is McIlroy's win enough to save the game or is golf liv-in on a prayer?

    Ep 64 | Is McIlroy's win enough to save the game or is golf liv-in on a prayer?

    On this week’s edition of the podcast we recap a wild one for golf. A week that began with those defecting to the controversial LIV series and facing the wrath of the media, ended with Rory McIlroy delighting in eclipsing Greg Norman’s 20 PGA Tour career wins at the Canadian Open. There was also a monumental win for Sweden’s Linn Grant at the Scandinavian Mixed; the 22-year old beating Henrik Stenson into second place by a whopping 9 shots. But while golf showed up Sunday in all its glory, major questions remain due to the bottomless pockets of LIV. We don’t claim to have the answers, but we do our best to pick apart the madness and plot a way forward for the game we all love. As ever, we hope you enjoy the listen.

    Ep 63 | U.S. Women's Open preview with Leona Maguire + JP Pro-Am announcements & Weekend recap

    On this week's edition of the podcast we were delighted to have Leona Maguire on the phone ahead of this week's $10m U.S. Women's Open at Pine Needles. Back in North Carolina, where she enjoyed a remarkable collegiate career at Duke University, Maguire is hoping a return to a happy hunting ground might trigger an upturn in fortunates following three missed cuts heading into this week's event. Maguire is joined by Stephanie Meadow who will also look to shine at women's golf's richest tournament having finished third at the tournament on her pro debut in 2014. Away from golf's main event this week, the JP McManus Pro-Am is shaping up to be a major in itself. We chat more big announcements with Scottie Scheffler and Jordan Spieth among those set to tee up at Adare Manor. There's Ryder Cup news, no news from LIV Golf which is news in itself, and much, much more. As ever, we hope you enjoy the listen. Don't forget to subscribe and let us know what you think.
