Tron and Randy chop it up with a wide variety of guests from all corners of the golf world.
Episode 103: Sin City
Vegas, baby! Tron and Randy do a bit of catching up before speaking with the Desert Duffer (that's an alias), friend of the program and Las Vegas resident. The Duffer shares what he knows about the city, including how to get the good bourbon at casinos, what restaurants to visit, and how not to get soaked if you want to play some golf. Enjoy!
Episode 102: LIVE from The Donnybrook at Pinehurst
The Donnybrook, NLU's second annual event from Pinehurst Resort, was last weekend. As part of the festivities, DJ, Neil and Randy recorded a live podcast from the veranda outside The Deuce overlooking the 18th hole of Pinehurst #2. Neil talks about his karmic road rage incident on the drive down, the Strapped boys compete in a Newlywed game, and the group answers a few questions from listeners. As always, we had a wonderful time at Pinehurst and thank them for their hospitality. Enjoy!
Episode 101: The Magnolia State
We're back! After a short hiatus, Randy and TC are back to preview the Sanderson Farms this week in Jackson, Mississippi. They do a bit of the usual house-cleaning before welcoming on special guest, Mr. Bunkie Perkins (of twitter fame). Bunkie, besides being a friend of the program, is a lawyer by training, a former college athletic administrator and AF2 GM, and current wildcatter who proudly graduated from Ole Miss. He shares what he knows about the Magnolia State. Enjoy!
Episode 100: A Journey to the Ozarks
Episode 100! What a world! In this one DJ and Randy unpack their trip last week to Branson, Missouri. Neither one had ever been to Big Cedar Lodge, let alone the Ozarks, but thanks to the fine folks at KemperLesnik were invited out to attend the grand opening of Payne's Valley, Tiger Woods' first public golf course design. To commemorate the occasion, the Payne's Valley Cup was contested between Team USA (Tiger and Justin Thomas) and Team Europe (Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy). This episode explores the three-day trip, from the match, to playing Ozarks National, Mountain Top and Payne's Valley, and finally some interesting happenings off the course. It was certainly an experience. Enjoy!
Episode 99: Chris McKendry
Professional tennis is rolling right from the US Open into the French Open. As such, there is no better time to catch up with ESPN's Grand Slam tennis host, Chris McKendry. Chris broke into television sports journalism in the early 90s, made her way to ESPN's Sportscenter a few years later and served as an anchor on that show for 20 years. She now hosts grand slam tennis. She discusses her love of tennis, breaking into sports media, hosting Sportscenter, and all of Randy's various inquiries into tennis and its stars. Enjoy!
Episode 98: Westchester County, NY
The US Open is at Winged Foot in Westchester County so Tron and Randy brought on somebody that knows a thing or two about golf in the area--Wally Szczerbiak. Besides being a fellow alumnus of Miami University, Wally is an avid golfer, currently serving as commissioner of the hallowed Professional Leisure Tour. Before that, he enjoyed a 10-year NBA career, making the 2002 All-Star team. We picked Wally's mind about the best golf around metro New York City, where his passion for golf developed, and much more. Enjoy!

On the Money
You guys just don’t miss. The city previews are absolute gold, I almost bust a gut every time you mention who you try to bring on the show. Tron from the outset just seems like the guy that you don’t want to like, but the more you listen to him and see him, the more he grows on you. And the Big Guy’s outlook on life is so enlightening and just always a breath of fresh air. I’m not always a big craft beer guy, but the NLU craft podcast has always been great! Keep rocking guys!
Irreverent yet Intelligent
The Big Guy (and tron most weeks) just doesn’t miss. The Trap Draw somehow manages to be the stupidest/smartest podcast in golf, and it isn’t even a golf podcast! For a sport that is so serious and unwilling to adapt, the Trap Draw represents the potential of golf’s younger fans to adapt and welcome broader horizons. Also, Hy-Vee and Meijer are the GOAT grocery stores in my humble opinion. Thank you Mr Jeezy
A sure thing
You guys just don’t miss, solid content week after week
