Joseph Bramlett came out of the gates firing as golf started back up, finishing T2 and T3 in his first two Korn Ferry events. We chatted with him about his career path from Stanford, missing 4.5 years with back injuries (!), being the first black golfer to graduate from Q-School in 25 years, the current racial tensions in the United States, plus some great Tiger stories. He also shares his perspective on Bryson, what it would take for him to be a perennial player on the PGA Tour, and a ton more. Appreciate Joseph's perspective and willingness to speak on all topics. Would love to have him back some time.
Bryson, Bryson, and some more Bryson. We discuss his dominate performance, what this means for the future of his career and the future of the game, and whether or not he's the best player in the world. We also make fun of his asinine comments during the week (33:00), Matt Wolff's strong showing (38:30), and our usual segments (48:00).
Chris Kirk stepped away from the game in 2019 due to alcoholism and anxiety issues. Now sober, he reflects on his personal journey, when he realized he had a problem, how he addressed it, and how he rebounded to win on the Korn Ferry Tour a few weeks ago. We also discuss his 2014 season, not getting a Ryder Cup selection, a tee ball that traveled 55 yards, and a lot more. We sincerely appreciate Chris' openness and willingness to come on the podcast to discuss some difficult topics.
DJ wins, Streelman makes a run, Phil has some moments, and the TPC doesn't bite back too hard. We discuss the course setup, DJ's drive on 18, the COVID "outbreak," how the tour moves forward, Daniel Summerhays' run at the Utah Championship, segments, and a whole lot more. We also react live on the air to the shocking news that NBC will be taking over the USGA contract from Fox, effective this fall (1:05:45).
