Professional Golf Tour Podcasts

If you are interested in the superstars that play the game and the latest information on the professional tours, here are three podcasts from well-informed hosts that will satisfy your listening interest.

On the Mark

Golf’s Subpar

Former PGA Tour professional Colt Knost and his partner Drew Stoltz talk golf with some of the best players in the world.

If the PGA Tour is of interest to you, then Golf’s Subpar is a good choice in podcasts. There are many episodes with PGA Tour player interviews, insight from Tour caddies, and a recap of tour events. The most recent interview was with Greg Norman discussing the Saudi Tour as he announced the tour schedule for 2022. I thought this tour was dead on arrival, but after listening to this podcast, there may still be a faintly beating heart of hope with Norman’s vision of professional golf. Listen to Golf’s Subpar
