Golf Talk [Episode 091]

It’s U.S. Open week, and if there’s one thing I know to be true, it’s that Tiger at 80% is better than more than 80% of the contestants.

Golf Talk PodcastIt’s a week of majors: the men are playing the U.S. Open and the women have an LPGA Championship winner. We take a look at the Tiger-Phil-Adam pairing, body parts (Tiger’s knee and Adam’s pinkie), and we check in on Michelle Wie, too. All that and a whole lot more in this (unedited) episode of Golf Talk.

This show was recorded with Audio Hijack Pro over a Skype connection. We then used Soundtrack Pro to edit the show and GarageBand to produce the AAC file from the AIFF file, to add the artwork, and so forth. Feeder was used to create the XML file.

Note: This is an AAC (MP4) file, an open file format. iTunes – free software – can play AAC files, as can numerous other players, though we heartily recommend iTunes.

  1. I’m not sure the seeded groupings is such a good idea. We absolutely will only see 2 players for the day with the occasional finish or highlight from the other 10.

    Adam Scott will not be shown. They’ll show Phil and Tiger picking their nose after their shots and the swing you hear while they are doing it will be Adam Scott playing.

    As for the rules officials, part of the problem is the level of scrutiny of their managing their drops etc. When we’re off on Saturday mornings we will probably end up with a ‘good enough’ drop and won’t expect hundreds of angry letters if our procedure was not 100% precise. Perhaps we could counteract that by publicising when they get it right and making that a part of the telecasts. It might encourage the pros to make a go of it alone if there was something to be gained from getting it right rather than being beaten up for getting it wrong. As it stands it is all stick and no carrot.
