The Shotgun Start with Andy Johnson and Brendan Porath of The Fried Egg is a podcast waiting for you early in the morning that quickly blasts through a variety of topics (usually) related to golf and (ideally) relevant to the day. It covers news from the pro tours around the world, amusing and important topics from the amateur game the rest of us play, and some irreverent stuff in between. There will be short interviews, previews, reviews, and dives into the archives. It provides what you need to know on golf through a rapid and fun catch-up discussion.

  • Best Golf Podcast

    I listen to dozens of podcasts. This is my favorite and the only one where I don’t fast forward through the ads. Skipping ads in this one means that you will miss some laughs.
