2022 Open Championship Recap with John, Mike, and Andy (07-19-2022)

July 19th, 2022 · Comments


John, Mike, and Andy are back for a recap of a thrilling Open Championship from the home of golf, St. Andrews on the 150th playing of the Open.   Cam Smith edged out Rory McIroy on the final round after an absurdly good run of consecutive birdies and key putts to save par.  The crew chat about Cam's once-in-a-lifetime performance in Scotland and break down the extremely competitive field.    How will McIroy cope with the frustration of playing so well and still losing?  Will Cam be back with more majors in his near future as well?   Plus: Tiger's presumed last moment at St. Andrews, solid runs for both Cam Young and Viktor Hovland, and a look at this week's surprises and disappointments.   The decent performances by now-LIV members Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, and others are also a topic: do they signal a larger migration of pro golf to the upstart, albeit dubious, competing tour?  Afterward, a look ahead to the rest of the tour and the FedEx playoff as we round out our golf coverage for the year.

2022 U.S. Open Recap with John and Mike (06-21-2022)

June 21st, 2022 · Comments


John and Mike are back to recap a thrilling U.S. Open from Brookline, MA.   Andy in Seattle may join in as well, and we'll cover Matt Fitzpatrick's narrow victory after a putt by runner-up Will Zalatoris on 18 to tie misses by an inch.   We'll also look at other big players from this weekend's action including the year's hot starter Scottie Scheffler, the recently surging Rory McIlroy who had a big setback on Sunday, and Jon Rahm, who had a solid defense of his U.S. Open title but struggled to keep the ball in the fairway on his final round.

After our coverage of the U.S. Open, we'll keep the golf panel on the show to cover the newly started LIV Tour overseas.  The Saudi-funded tour got a number of big names, most recently Brooks Koepka who announced his move to the tour on Monday.  We'll also cover Sir Nick Faldo's announcement of retirement from full-time broadcasting between CBS and Golf Channel.  Where does the PGA Tour go from here?  That plus a look-ahead to upcoming events and a quick preview of golf's return to St. Andrew's for the Open Championship next month.

May 25th, 2022 · Comments


John and Mike are back to recap the very exciting 2022 PGA Championship from Southern Hills in Tulsa, OK.  We chat about Justin Thomas' huge comeback on the final round of the tournament.  In so doing, he beat out Mito Pereira, who was leading for most of the weekend, and Will Zalatoris, who was sneaking up on the leaders in the top 5 all tournament long.  How did gnarly weather conditions and the pressure affect the outcome on a loaded field of players?   Later in the show, we discuss the May dates used in recent years for the PGA Championship.  Is it a good move or is it being lost in a very crowded sports calendar this time of year?  We'll also discuss the broadcast, share our surprises and disappointments, and much more from this year's PGA Championship.
