Golf Talk [Episode 028]

The U.S. Open is over, and even forum member Rafi sees fit to join in. That Rafi doesn’t care for Phil Mickelson is a moot point, right? Nah…

PodcastPhil Mickelson, Colin Montgomerie, Jim Furyk, Padraig Harrington, and countless others collapse under the weight of the U.S. Open, and only Aussie Geoff Ogilvy manages to avoid a crash and burn to win the 106th at Winged Foot. This week, we talk about the rough, the greens, Phil’s fateful 18th hole, and a whole lot more. Tune in to this episode of Golf Talk for more.
