Kip Henley on PGA Tour rookie Austin Cook and winning the RSM Classic (Ep. 24)

I caught up with legendary looper Kip Henley on Monday afternoon who was still on cloud nine after the RSM Classic at Sea Island. Kip had been bouncing around the past three years because his former boss Brian Gay had been injured and he was recommended to Cook by a mutual friend. They started working together for the Web.com Tour Finals. Kip reflects on the past few months and talks about Austin's game and personality, along with their player-caddie relationship. And of course, he also shares insights on how impressed he is with Austin's composure and maturity. I mean, this kid sounds like an all-around solid individual, not to mention really solid golfer. Find out the funny nickname that Kip keeps wanting to call Austin. Congrats and thanks again for the time. We'll have to do it again at Kapalua -- with more time when I'm prepared with my podcast gear and not in the doctor's office's waiting room with crappy reception, no less.

Paramount CC Pod Party With Steve Scott and Brian Chapin (Ep. 23)

On Tuesday I popped by Paramount CC, where I am super fortunate to be an unofficial honorary member (I have no idea what that really means, but I have no complaints), in Rockland County, NY, about an hour from my apartment in the city, to work on my short game and putting because it's not like I didn't do enough of that between 1995 and 2005! No, it's cold and I was hoping for another Indian Summer, but I have a feeling we're in for a rough winter. Anyway, one of the major reasons I love Paramount -- not just because it's a fun and challenging course kept in immaculate conditions -- is the people. I always love hanging out and catching up with two of my favorite people Steve Scott, the head pro (and yes, it is *the* dude that almost beat Tiger Woods in the 1996 U.S. Amateur at Pumpkin Ridge), and Brian Chapin, superintendent and all-around awesome human. I mean, SO MUCH that I drove (with pseudo-blurry vision post-PRK surgery) out to see them and record the pod in person, and we roc...

NGLA All Day! Patrick Koenig (Ep. 22)

Patrick Koenig and I discuss playing National Golf Links of America designed by C.B. Macdonald, the godfather of American golf architecture. He took time to find the perfect piece of land in Southampton (Long Island), New York, to plot out his masterpiece. Macdonald used the strategic design features he saw from the most famous holes on the other side of the pond to construct NGLA, which has stood the test of time.

NGLA All Day! Patrick Koenig (Ep. 22)

No time for Fishing at Fishers Island, part 1 (Ep. 21)

Welcome to the first part of a very special series of episodes with friend of the pod and regular guest Patrick Koenig, who chatted with me about his solo and buddies trips to Ireland and Scotland this summer. When we recorded the pod, I mentioned he needed to come out to the NYC area and I claimed I could arrange tee times at Fishers Island, National Golf Links of America and Shinnecock. Well, I lied and failed. I was only successful with NGLA (October 10) and Fishers Island (October 11), but we did get a bonus nine holes into the mix at Hay Harbor, the "other," arguably the more exclusive club on FI, so we were told. Well, I'm not sure if Patrick has forgiven me yet, but hopefully he will soon. In part 1 of 2 (maybe 3?) of this podcast episode, Koenig and I chat about playing Fishers Island, which is like the Holy Grail for golf architecture geeks, especially MacRaynor fanatics, like myself and Koenig. If there's a C.B. Macdonald or Seth Raynor (Macdonald's protege and co-architec...

Mini Tour Life: Paul Apyan (Ep. 20)

We're back! And yes, it's been a while -- from holiday in idyllic Gozo (with poor WiFi and bad cell service, which was bliss after the initial shock that lasted like 5-6 days of not being able to access all the information about the horrible stuff happening all over the world) to a wedding in Seattle, along with some other business TBD. In this episode, I chat with self-described journeyman and Latin American Tour pro Paul Apyan, who has also become a good friend and someone I speak with regularly about (gasp!) politics. I first "met" shortly after he and a friend started the Twitter account @LifeontheMiniTours (formerly known as "Mini Tour Problems") five or six years ago. Paul provides great insight into tour life as experienced by the majority of professional golfers. I'd call it "how the other half lives," but that's not entirely accurate because it's more like "how the other 99% of tour pros live." Mini Tour life is the opposite of glamorous and there are no private jets, nor w...

Tim Kawakami, Editor-in-Chief of The Athletic Bay Area, on his new gig, Steph Curry and Colin Kaepernick (Ep. 19)

Following the third round at the Northern Trust Open, I caught up with Tim Kawakami, the Editor-in-Chief of The Athletic Bay Area, while he was en route to cover the big fight — yes, that one: Mayweather vs. McGregor. Prior to joining The Athletic this summer, Tim was a columnist at the San Jose Mercury News for 17 years. He’s one of the most prominent — if not the foremost — voices when it comes to coverage and insight into the Golden State Warriors and San Francisco 49ers. Tim and I talked about his new gig at The Athletic, which just launched at the start of August. He also provided his insider knowledge on all things Steph Curry, including his impressive performance at the Web.com Tour event. We chatted about Colin Kaepernick's journey that eventually led to his silent protest and the ensuing (and ongoing) controversy -- which was recently detailed in a guest column for The Athletic by Kaepernick's friend. Tim also describes the drastic and distinct cultures in the NBA vs. t...

From junior golf to life on Tour: Andres Gonzales (Ep. 18)

PGA Tour pro Andres Gonzales is one of my oldest and dearest friends. We met when we were 15 through our swing coach (Joe Thiel) back in our junior golf days. We practiced and played a lot together, and Andres often caddied for me at qualifiers for USGA events, among other tournaments. He was the only guy friend in high school that my parents were cool with letting me have (platonic) sleepovers with. (Strict Asian immigrant parents!) We reminisced and took a walk down memory lane with funny and random stories from our youth on and off the golf course -- mostly about Andres embarrassing me when I used to be super shy. Like when he pulled this stunt. Andres' wife Kristin, whom I've also known since we were 15/16-years-old, makes a couple of cameos, along with their two lovely daughters Tova and Marit. Tune in for lots of laughs and stories. I'm a sentimental person, so I love that there a few things that don't change -- perhaps they evolve, but the foundation, so to speak, remains the...

2017 PGA Championship: Round 3 preview with Brandel Chamblee (Ep. 17)

I caught up with Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee on Saturday morning ahead of the third round of the PGA Championship. We discussed the changes to Quail Hollow, the impact of the weather on the course conditions and what we've seen so far from Kevin Kisner, Hideki Matsuyama, Jason Day, and other notables in the field. Brandel gave his expert analysis on the top contenders and big names and what to watch for this afternoon.

2017 PGA Championship preview with Illinois Head Coach and PGA Professional Mike Small and PGA Tour pro Kevin Na (Ep. 16)

Welcome to the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club! There's so much to share and discuss, but you'll have to listen to the podcast to hear about the changes to the golf course, which plays hosts to a regular PGA Tour event, and the overwhelming negative reaction to the tweaksfrom the players. I caught up with Mike Small, the head coach of the men’s golf teamat the University of Illinois, which has become an NCAA powerhouse under his leadership. He's also wontwo Web.com Tour events, played on the PGA Tour, competed in multiple majors, won the PGA Professional Championship three times -- just to name a few of his accolades and achievements in the game. Coach Small is obviously a man of many talents and I'm not sure how he manages to do it all, but it's very impressive. Then, in the second half of the episode, I caught up with Kevin Na to talk Justin Bieber, Quail Hollow, and the ongoing discussion about championship golf courses becoming longer -- heavily favoring the "bomb-and-gou...
