Ep 143 - Thomas Joins The Majors Crew

August 15, 2017

On the show this week we look back at Justin Thomas' first Major as he won The 99th PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Golf Club.

We also talk about the failures of the broadcast strategy and possible improvements.

We have a short chat at the beginning about our own games and course set up issues at our home course Druids Heath, Rory's rib and possible extended time off and Tiger's rehab.

Ep 137 - US Open Domination by Koepka

June 22, 2017

We break down the golf course, an unknown to the vast majority of the field and identify the challenges faced by the players this week, what skills and attribrutes they'll need to put themselves into contention and what they'll need to avoid doing that could ruin their chances and the weather conditions they'll face. We then pull this all together into a few of our fancies for the week as well as talking about the big guns and some fairytale outsiders. It's always one of the most fascinating and story filled tournaments of the year, and this one promises no different.
