Jack and Mike are joined this week by Andy Johnson of the Fried Egg to talk about anything and everything golf related including the finish at the Valspar, GDL’s beard, slow greens, top amateurs, golf science, the bizarre back to back wins of Matt Every, and which of the top players in the world (all of whom are non-Americans) are going to do well this week at the API.
In an episode sponsored by terrible internet connections, Jack and Mike attempt to understand what the other person is trying to say about the current state of professional golf.
Despite the sometimes grainy speech, it seems like the top guys are all trying to position themselves to be ready for the Masters, Adam Scott and Bubba Watson leading the way, and Jordan Spieth trying to crank up his preparation.
With an abnormal amount of storylines coming from the Honda Classic, Jack and Mike talk about the current state of the top players’ games. Scott, Sergio, Fowler, and others.
Luckily, since the Cadillac Championship has such a good field, pretty much every one of those top guys from the Honda are playing this week as well. And so are the top two players in the world, Spieth and Day, who Jack and Mike almost forget to mention.
On this episode of the GOTM podcast, sponsored by craigstadler.com, Jack and Mike recap the Northern Trust Open finish, how Bubba plays well at courses that Bubba likes, how freaking far Adam Scott can hit a cut 4 iron, Rory’s biceps, how focus is much more important than effort, and what to expect from top players at the Honda Classic.
Among other banter of course.
After a week hiatus, the GOTM crew are back to talk Phil losing, injured players winning, and how great Charl Schwartzel’s swing is. And Jack gushes about how great a course Riviera is. Maybe a little too much.
This week’s episode, Jack and Mike talk about tough conditions at the Farmers, whether Patrick Reed is a quitter, and the fantastic finish upcoming at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
Shoutout to Tiger’s super baggy pants from the early 2000s!
Episode 4 — Insuring Farmers in California (1/25/2016)
This week’s episode Jack and Mike recap Dufner’s shots from the rocks, analyzing everything that goes on in DJ’s life, and debate what was easier for Jason Day’s wife — having a baby, or being run over by Lebron. Yeah, we went there.
Episode is sponsored (not actually) by the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, the best golf deal on the planet, and by Justa Pizza Place in Tomah, Wisconsin.
Episode 3 — Building Careers in Abu Dhabi (1/20/2016)
The third episode of the GOTM podcast, Jack and Mike talk about takeaways from the Sony Open, why appearance fees are great if you’re looking to watch good players, how Mike is a big fan of hairy legs, and the not so uniqueness of 17th hole island greens.
Tune in next week to find out who’s made the most money on the PGA Tour without a win, as well as who Brad Faxon was picking on during the 2015 US Open coverage!
Episode 2 — Sony Open in Hawaii (1/13/2016)
Second week of the new year means, as usual, the Sony Open in Hawaii!
On this episode, Jack and Mike recap Jordan Spieth’s dominating, yet not at all boring, 8 shot victory at the Hyundai ToC.
Then looking forward to this week’s event, cover the anchoring ban and its effects on some of the players this week, as well as Waialae Country Club’s characteristics.
In our inaugural episode, Jack and Mike talk transitioning into the regular season and how many rounds it takes to get back into form after just hunting / fishing for the 3 previous months (turns out it’s about 2.5 rounds).
Also go into players switching brands. What’s PXG is, who their new players are, and which brand is the new old white guy brand preference.
