On the show this week, we leave our usual format aside to do a special combined podcast with Chris Solomon on No Laying Up, who recently visited for his first Irish Golf Trip, playing four magnificent courses in a whirlwind 48 hours.
Barry and Chris talk in detail about the four courses and how each is special in their own unique way. We alternated play between two links and two parkland courses: The Island Golf Club (which hosts an Open Championship Qualifier every year), The K Club Palmer Course (host of the 2006 Ryder Cup and the 2016 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open), Portmarnock (host of more Irish Opens and Championships than there is space to list) and Killeen Castle (host of the 2011 Solheim Cup). It was a spectacular weekend playing some of the best golf courses that the east coast and Ireland have to offer from its wealth of golfing riches - One that will never be forgotten.
We'll be back next week with our regular Major Preview show with Steve Bamford of Golf Betting System to talk about The Open Championship from Troon.

More Olympic withdrawals, Muirfield to hold another vote on female membership, the cancellation of The Greenbrier and The Open Qualifiers from this week including one of last year's headline players, our own Paul Dunne.
We look back on the events of last week - Lydia Ko continued doing what Lydia Ko does in winning The Walmart NW Arkansas Championship, Henrik Stenson was not so injured when he picked up The BMW International Open on The European Tour and Billy Hurley's wonderful win at The Quicken Loans National at Congressional on The PGA Tour.

We talk about Rory's withdrawal from the Olympics due to Zika Virus concerns and how it might cause a domino effect for other big names to withdraw.
And then to the big one - The 116th US Open. Dustin Johnson was the winner in sensational fashion, simply bludgeoning the course to death with his missile tee shots. Our own Shane Lowry came agonisingly close but couldn't find the right performance in the final round. We talk it all out and then hit the Rules mess with a vengeance.
And to wrap up we look ahead to the events of the coming week - The Meijer LPGA Classic, The BMW International on The European Tour and The Quicken Loans National from the beast that is Congressional Country Club, where Rory dominated the field in the 2011 US Open.
