John in CT and Mike in North NJ are back to cover the 2018 Open Championship, a near miss for Tiger Woods that went awry on his back nine, and featuring other great rallies by Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, Justin Rose and the eventual winner Francesco Molinari.   Is Tiger's momentary lead on the final round a sign of a future major championship, or a momentary "right place/right time" scenario?   Why is Spieth so bad with the putter?   How did the Carnoustie Championship course treat the field 19 years after Jean Van de Velde's big collapse?  We look at what went wrong for the runners up, cover the usual surprises and disappointments, then look ahead to the tour schedule.

Chris and Dave are back for Part 2 of our NBA Offseason Podcast series.   This time, we look at the best moments from the NBA's Summer League, including some great performances from Wendell Carter Jr., Kevin Knox, Marvin Bagley II, and surprisingly the Summer League MVP Josh Hart from the Lakers.   Later, we dig into additional offseason news, including Kawhi Leonard's surprising trade to the Raptors for DeMar DeRozan and other pieces.  The NBA had numerous cap-based trades, The Wizards get Dwight Howard, Brook Lopez signs a new $3.4 million dollar deal with the Bucks, and a we observe bone-head contract by the Bulls for Zach LaVine.  Jabari Parker, in a better move, signs with said bulls for two years.  All this and much more in our second offseason show.
