Paternity test savant Maury Povich (48:46) joins the show. He famously hopped on a few other Barstool shows and went out of his way to say Riggs needs to make swing adjustments. We get to the bottom of it and hear about how the Maury show came about, his love for golf, and discuss different tracks. In headlines we preview the upcoming Charles Barkley, Phil Mickelson, Steph Curry, Peyton Manning match, and in From The Gallery, we go over the leaf rule, how Tour players get paid, and our favorite golf course branding.
Big news: Tiger & Charlie Woods are teaming up for the PNC, Kisner loses in a playoff but takes home over $700K, and movie star Josh Dumahel (72:07) joins the show. We talk about the industry, Mark Wahlberg’s style of golf, and what it’s like being onset during the pandemic. Before Josh, we dive into what Tiger & Charlie’s appearance could mean for golf going forward and, also, into our deep thoughts on the British Royal Family.
Golf brings a lot of people together and drives a lot of important things in all of our lives. On today’s show, we’re joined by two special men who’ve both helped a lot of people. First, Jon Taffer (17:16) from Bar Rescue joins us to talk Frankie’s appearance on his show, opening new restaurants during COVID, how golf can improve as a business, and how nervous he was when first storming into bars on television. Next, we’re joined by Lt Col Dan Rooney (65:15), an American hero, an F-16 fighter jet pilot and a PGA professional. We discuss Folds Of Honor, American Dunes (the incredible new golf course project with Jack Nicklaus), and how golf influenced Dan to become a fighter jet pilot.
We recap the incredibly unique 2020 Masters with 4-time participant and recurring guest Pat Perez (2:55) who’s got insight from very recent rounds played with winner Dustin Johnson. We dig into it all — DJ putting a stamp on his phenomenal 2020 year, how Augusta National played and presented itself, Bryson’s “par 67” backfire, Rory’s slow start syndrome, Tiger’s 10 on 12, and everything else from the first and only November Masters.
Pat Perez joins us for the entire show to talk Masters bets, conditions, what it’s like to play, how special it is, how different this year will be and much, much, much more.

A November Masters. The Barstool Classic Championship at Pinehurst. Bryson grunting drives over 400 yards. We breakdown an INTENSE Cradle playoff at Pinehurst, Tiger Tracker re-emerging, Frankie defeating 12 year old Pete (with 9 shots), prop bets for this week, and MUCH more.
Doug Ghim (4:00), Kirk Minihane (55:50), and Jeff McNeil (106:02) join the show. It’s a jam-packed one. First, PGA TOUR youngster Doug Ghim takes us through the behind-the-scenes of finishing low amateur at the 2018 Masters and getting through the Butler Cabin ceremony, hilarious high school golf stories, and the windy conditions in Bermuda. Then, Kirk Minihane goes deep into the one true thing he loves: the Masters. We talk favorites, who’s likable and who’s not, and also revisit Riggs’ emotional Pinehurst departure. Finally, New York Met all-star Jeff McNeil discusses the upcoming Barstool Classic Championship at Pinehurst (which he’s playing in), the Mets new ownership, and some inside baseball on anticipating pitches.
Different show today. First, we’ve got Philadelphia Flyers star center and Team Portnoy member Kevin Hayes (7:27). He takes us hole by hole through his first trip to Pine Valley. Second, we’re joined by World Series champ, Dodger starting pitcher Walker Buehler (66:29). He discusses the similarities between pitching and golfing, and what it was like winning a title during the COVID era.
