Episode 21 – Recorded Sunday, August 12, 2018

We break down the week that was the PGA Championship at Bellerive CC in St. Louis.

Tiger’s miraculous resurgence on Sunday to earn second.

Brooks Koepka wins his second major of the year and his third in 18 months.

Author of Bogeys, Birdies, and Bipolar and professional golfer Mike Wellington  (@mwellington3906) joins the show to give his take on the PGA Championship. Should the USGA take notes from the PGA on how to host a better championship? Will the St. Louis become a regular stop on the PGA Tour? Mike also discuss his battle with bipolar, and the time he was going to drive to Tiger’s gate and challenge him to a golf duel. You can find Mike’s book here!

Also, reporting from KMOX Sports this week, former Miss Missouri Katie Kearney (@katiekearney_) joins the show to talk about her experiences from covering her first major that just happened to be held in her hometown.

There are about three minutes of baseball talk. Then, the guys get political and talk about the need for a regional government in St. Louis.
