  • Rocket Mortgage Round 2: Webb’s tournament to lose? (7/3)

    It’s Webb’s world, we’re just living in it! Webb Simpson carded the low round of the day on Friday to vault him into the co-lead with Chris Kirk. Can Webb win his second-straight Tour start (2:33)? Another player going for a second consecutive win is Chris Kirk who was victorious in his last outing on the Korn Ferry Tour. What are the odds Kirk notches another win this week (7:08)?

  • Rocket Mortgage Round 1: Bryson launches up the leaderboard (7/2)

    We’re breaking down all the first round action from the first round of the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Even though he’s one shot off the lead, we’d be remised if we didn’t talk about big ole beefy Bryson (0:40). Kevin Kisner sits on a share of the 18-hole lead along with Doc Redman and Scott Stallings. Speaking of “Mr. Generic PGA Tour Pro” Scott Stallings, what can we expect from Scott on Friday after a stellar 7-under 65 (12:53). We save the best for last & chat about Rick’s boy Doc Redman. Can the 2017 U.S. Amateur winner repeat his success here from last year (16:58)?

  • Historic win for Dustin Johnson at the Travelers (6/28)

    Dustin Johnson is victorious again! DJ is now a 21-time winner on the PGA Tour with at least one victory in every season since the start of his PGA Tour career (2:08). Brendon Todd came up short on Sunday after a stellar 3 rounds which saw him hit 41 of 42 fairways. Are we “out” on the Todd Father or can we expect to see him in more final groups this season (13:15)? Will Gordon earned special temporary status after finishing in a two-way tie for third place. We dive into what that means for him and how he earns full status on the PGA Tour (19:05). Viktor Hovland has been on a heater since golf returned to the airwaves. Can he shake the curse of the “Puerto Rico Open” (26:22)? Stick around after the break where Kyle and Rick get revenge on Producer Jacob after Phil proved his game actually is in shambles (33:55). Rory McIlroy hasn’t been quite the same since the PGA Tour returned to action. Are we concerned about the world’s no. 1 ranked player (42:08)? Finally we wrap with a little bit of talk around Big Ole Beefy Bryson. He’s notched six consecutive top-10 finishes, is his next win looming at the Rocket Mortgage Classic next week (47:18)?

    Rick Gehman and Greg DuCharme are here to breakdown all the action from the second round of the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, CT. Phil dazzled us again on Friday with a 63, that’s not too shabby for a 50-year-old! Does Lefty have staying power compared to the young guns he was paired with for the first two rounds (2:00)? Will Gordon leads after 36-holes of the Travelers Championship. If you’ve never heard of Mr. Gordon, don’t fret! We’ll tell you what you need to know about this Vanderbilt standout fighting to earn his PGA Tour card (9:35).

  • Travelers Round 1 Recap: 50-year-old Phil Mickelson cards a 64 (6/25)

    Greg DuCharme and Mark Immelman are on the podcast to breakdown today’s action from the Travelers Championship. Mackenzie Hughes was on 59 watch in the morning wave. What are the odds Hughes holds on to this lead through the rest of the week (1:14)? Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau carded some low rounds together on Thursday. Phil stood out by shooting a 6-under 64 in his first round as a 50-year-old. Is this a sign that Lefty can still keep up with the kids on the PGA Tour (8:45)? We wrap by discussing Sergio Garcia’s comments today about the PGA Tour’s handling of recent COVID cases. Does Sergio have a leg to stand on when he says people who didn’t expect cases were living in ‘la la land’ (18:40)?

  • ? Brooks Koepka, Webb Simpson WD from Travelers Championship (6/24)

    It was a crazy Wednesday with flashbacks to March 13th at the Players Championship. The PGA Tour saw five players withdraw among concerns over some positive test results for COVID-19. Despite all this, the Travelers Championship is still set to go on as planned just more safety protocols. Rick Gehman and Kyle Porter are on hand for a reaction to PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan's press conference in Cromwell, CT.

  • Webb Simpson closes it out to win at Harbour Town (6/21)

    Webb Simpson notched his second win of the season after an impressive 64 on Sunday. Why are people continually underrating Webb as a top player in the world (0:20). Abraham Ancer might be one of the most unlucky players on tour. He shot a final round 65 after co-leading at 54-holes. Practically any other tournament that’d be good enough for the win (14:05). Tyrrell Hatton kept us entertained on Sunday at Harbour Town. Should we expect to see him more at the top of PGA Tour leaderboards (17:30)? Jordan Spieth rollercoaster came crashing to a halt this weekend, has Kyle lost all confidence in the former Masters champ (21:30)? Brooks Koepka is finally returning to the BK we know and love. What are the takeaways from his best finish of the season thus far (22:40)?

  • Heritage Round 3 Recap: Four share lead after moving day (6/20)

    This leaderboard is INSANE at the RBC Heritage. We enter the final round with four players tied for the lead at Harbour Town (0:30). Webb Simpson held his own after sleeping can he or one of the other co-leaders convert or is their value to anyone trailing in the pack? Rick and Kyle also speak to what they’re looking forward to watching most on Sunday at Hilton Head (18:15). The PGA Tour said on Saturday that the impact of Nick Watney’s COVID related WD is minimal after 11 tests came back negative at Harbour Town. How big of a wake-up call was this for the tour (24:00)?

  • ? PGA Tour’s first positive COVID case & what to make of it (6/19)

    Golf twitter erupted on Friday afternoon after the PGA Tour announced Nick Watney tested positive for COVID-19. How did this happen and what does it mean for the PGA Tour going forward (0:20)? Webb Simpson is your 36-hole leader after an INCREDIBLE day on the putting surface. Bryson DeChambeau sits just one shot off that lead, can the swing machine or another player make a run over the weekend (12:36)? We wrap with our strategy to bet heading into the weekend. Who do Rick and Greg like to take home the tartan jacket (20:43)?

  • Heritage Round 1 Recap: Mr. Spieth's Wild Ride ? (6/18)

    It’s déjà vu all over again as Jordan Spieth soars in round one. He overcame a triple-bogey early on in his round by lighting his second-nine on fire with six straight birdies! Is this another flash in the pan or can Jordan put up a another top-10 finish (4:05)? Bryson DeChambeau overcame expectations by not getting into too much trouble off the tee at Pete Dye’s low country masterpiece. Can he keep the momentum going over the weekend (16:00)? Rory McIlroy is the no. 1 ranked player in the world who hits the ball a mile. So of course he shot a 1-over 72 on one of the PGA Tour’s shortest courses. Are we pressing the panic button on Rory after two consecutive rounds over par (25:15)?

  • Daniel Berger triumphs at star-studded Charles Schwab Challenge (6/14)

    Daniel Berger is your 2020 Charles Schwab Challenge champion! On today’s episode we breakdown his surprising victory over a star-studded leaderboard. Mark Immelman is on the scene for us, he details just what the scene was like at a fan-less Colonial Country Club (2:15). Did Daniel Berger win this golf tournament or did Collin Morikawa lose it (7:35)? Xander Schauffele is no 0-for-4 after holding a 54-hole lead or co-lead. How can “X” work on becoming a better closer (16:52)? We finally hit on the talk of the gym, Bryson DeChambeau. He finished one stroke short of the playoff, have we seen enough evidence to determine that Bryson has broken the game of golf (23:40)? It’s not an episode of The First Cut if we don’t mention Jordan Spieth (34:47). How are we feeling about Kyle’s boy after a rollercoaster Saturday? We wrap by breaking down our One and Done league along with declaring the first ever winner of The First Cut Matchup Challenge Belt (42:50)!

    Xander Schauffele leads a stacked leaderboard at Colonial Country Club in Ft. Worth, TX. Xander is 0-for-3 after holding a 54-hole lead or co-lead. Can "X" finally close out to reach 5 career PGA Tour victories (4:35)? Defending U.S. Open champion Gary Woodland is one of those pros stalking the lead, can he chase down Xander on Sunday (10:25)? Two words... Jordan Spieth. How are we feeling about his chances to win (14:04)? Collin Morikawa is lingering at the top, Mark Immelman thinks he should be the guy to watch on Sunday (23:12). Rory McIlroy had a ho-hum round on Saturday, and yet he still went under-par for the day. Just how impressive is the Ulsterman's floor (30:05)? We wrap the podcast by dishing out picks for Sunday, can Rick dig into his bag of data to pick a winner with some value?

  • 2020 Ryder Cup fate still TBD, "Sungjae is the modern Seve" (6/5)

    What a week it's been. The world's attention has not been on golf and that's okay. We're here to try and bring you a little break from the chaos of the real world. First though we feel it's important to acknowledge some voices in the game that might go unheard. We encourage our listeners to check out works by black voices in golf including Damon Hack's piece for Golf Channel “Can I be both thankful and horrified? Can I?” and Maurice Allen's work in Golf Digest “Being Black in a White Sport”. We'd also be doing a disservice if we didn't give a shout out to Cheyenne Woods and her podcast "Birdies Not BS".

    Also on the docket for day, we're breaking down yesterday's news that the Official World Golf Ranking will resume with the return of the PGA Tour, why does this make some European Tour players less than thrilled (7:14)? Speaking of Euros, European Tour CEO Keith Pelley says a "direction" for the 2020 Ryder Cup will be formalized by the end of the month. U.S. Captain Steve Stricker says a Ryder Cup without fans would be a "yawner", do we have any hope players tee it up in Wisconsin this year (18:50)? Finally we wrap by discussing modern day player comparison to golfers of ole. Is Dustin Johnson the modern equivalent of Greg Norman? Is Sungjae Im really the new Seve Ballesteros (28:50)?

  • Are the PGA Tour’s best players UNDER paid? (6/1)

    Today the PGA Tour announced the creation of PGA Tour University, a special ranking system to help the game’s top collegiate male golfers make it to the PGA Tour ranks (4:50). Last week the tour announced the cancelation of the John Deere Classic. Could the PGA Tour go back-to-back weeks at Muirfield Village? Should the tour have taken this approach from the beginning (12:10)? The European Tour is coming back to action with a “UK Swing” starting in July! What can fans expect to see on the links as Europes top players return (18:40)? According to Greg Norman, the PGA Tour is exploring the creation of a side pot to pay its top players. This is supposedly a move to create an incentive for the top players to stay with the PGA Tour and not jump ship to the upstart PGL (24:50).
