Rory wins and, naturally, delivers several fantastic quotes. Rickie contends. Morikawa threatens. Also — it’s spooky season. Do you like to be scared? Terrified? Anxious watching movies or shows or walking through haunted houses? Have you watched Squid Game? Should we create Golf Squid Game? When will golf one day figure out golf coverage?
Riggs takes the squad on a historical journey looking into the rules of golf over the past 800 years. Some old school rules blow our minds and make us consider bringing them back. In news, Bryson changed his putting based on the study of where one strikes the dimple on a golf ball… and Frankie is all for it. We also get an update on Frankie’s elbow (not good), Tiger Woods, and more.
Alfonso Ribeiro (01:14:13) joins the show for the third time. Again, he’s incredible, insightful, and full of great stories. But most importantly, our very own Trent Ryan has proven to be a national heartthrob. He stole the hearts of every female in Boston with his live show appearances last week… complete with his luggage. We discuss Trent’s “pop,” new footage of Tiger Woods, Frankie’s wounded arm, Sungjae’s victory, Wolff’s solid play, JR Smith’s college golf debut, Phil improving to 3/4 on the Senior Circuit, and much more.
Guests galore. First, we’re joined by Sub-Par host, former PGA Tour player, and roaster of Lurch, Colt Knost (00:11:37). We discuss the Bud Cauley incident, the MJ lunch photo, get some great stories, and find some true common ground. Then, as we’re on with Colt, Sam Burns (00:52:45) joins the show fresh off winning the Sanderson Farms. We discuss favorite restaurants on the road, hunting, LSU football, pizza reviews, Trent’s bunker woes, and much more.
Lurch had lunch with MJ (like, the real Jumpman 23) and watched football at Justin Thomas’ house. Frankie had surgery. Riggs gave a speech at Oakmont’s famed SWAT party. Date Trent emerged and may permanently replace Trent Ryan. All this plus Bones is leaving TV to caddie full-time for JT, Bubba and Ted Scott split up, Bryson shined at the World Long Drive and much more.
Zach Johnson (00:20:08) and Entourage creator Doug Ellin (00:59:18) join the show. First, Trent confesses his undying fandom to fellow Cedar Rapids native, 2-time major winner and recent Ryder Cup vice-captain Zach Johnson. We discuss Iowa, the famous eyes open Claret Jug picture, and get details on what it’s like on the team earpieces during the Ryder Cup. Then, Doug Ellin joins to discuss the differences between Hollywood then and now, how Entourage is received today and his thoughts on it, and tells stories about he and the crew through the years.
Dylan Dethier, senior writer for Golf.com and Golf Mag, joins us live from Whistling Straits to break down Ryder Cup prep. Who’s looking sharp? Who’s not? What differs this week from any other week? How does it affect the players? Plus, Frankie & Trent continue to grill Riggs on his European “fandom.”
Emotions are high. Tempers are flaring. Expectations are high. It’s Ryder Cup week and we’re here for it. Frankie and Trent confront Riggs about his European fandom. Riggs aggressively defends himself. The squad goes through possible pairings, possible outcomes, possible drama, course setup, captains’ strategy and much more. It’s here. It’s time.
