Tim Simpson talks about how lyme disease took away his opportunity to be a member of the US Ryder Cup team in 1991. We also hear about his relationship with Sam and JC Snead, the things that Sam taught him, and tips for how to consistently make center clubface contact.
Olin Browne shares his thoughts on the wrap-around Tour season, the importance of accuracy off the tee for those of us who can't drive it 300+ yards, Bernhard Langer the prankster, what Phil Mickelson brings to the Champions Tour, and his thoughts on the new World Champions Cup.
Matthew Laurance shares his thoughts on the Ryder Cup as well and what it's done for Bryson DeChambeau's personal brand.
