US Open Wrap-up: Rahm’s raid, Bryson’s blow-up, Rory’s resurgence & more!

June 21, 2021

Well, that was rather entertaining, wasn't it? The 2021 US Open is in the books and what a week it was. Jon Rahm staged a final round rally to win his first major championship... but that doesn't even begin to tell half the story.

On this week's episode of the award-winning bunkered Podcast, Michael and Bryce reflect on an eventful week at Torrey Pines, including praise for the new champ, some harsh words for defending champ DeChambeau, hope for Rory and loads more.

Also... what bygone golf gear would you like to see make a return? Square drivers? Ping Eye-2s? Those mad Corey Pavin irons? The guys discuss their favourite forgotten bits of kit.

Get ready for total carnage. The world's top golfers are about to take on the 'Toughest Test in Golf', courtesy of the 121st edition of the US Open. Taking place at Torrey Pines in San Diego, there's no shortage of storylines. Will Bryson and Brooks resume hostilities? Will the USGA mastermind another annoying controversy? Phil couldn't... could he? Michael and Bryce debate all of these points and pick the two men they expect to see slug it out for the trophy come Sunday.

Elsewhere, with the country gripped by EURO 2020 fever, the guys are joined by St Johnstone's double-winning manager Callum Davidson, who reveals how he very nearly chose a career in golf over one in football.

And has golf found its latest young star? It's all here in another packed ep of the most opinionated podcast in golf.

Brooks, Bryson, bullying… and betting!

Brooks, Bryson, bullying… and betting!

June 7, 2021

What a mad weekend that was! From the Brooks-Bryson feud taking an interesting twist, to Jon Rahm’s COVID-enforced Memorial withdrawal, to Lexi Thompson’s unfortunate but massive choke, there was loads going on – and, on this week's episode of The bunkered Podcast, Michael and Bryce discuss it all. Warning: things get tense!

Elsewhere, PointsBet USA’s senior editor Teddy Greenstein joins us to talk about gambling on golf. If you’ve ever wondered how the American system of pluses and minuses work, this is the ep you’ve been waiting for.

Also, the guys think they’ve found a way to take the first tee experience at the Ryder Cup to the next level… do you agree?!

What it’s like to caddie for Bubba Watson

What it’s like to caddie for Bubba Watson

May 31, 2021

To say that Bubba Watson is one of golf's more unorthodox players is a bit like saying water's a bit wet. The two-time Masters champion is one of golf's biggest mavericks, a truly one-off character who plays with a style that is all his own. To provide a better understanding of how the left-hander's game - and mind - works, Watson's long-serving caddie Ted Scott joins this week's episode of The bunkered Podcast.

Fun fact: as well as being one of the game's top loopers, Scott is also a legit world champion in another 'sport'. You'll be stunned when you find out what it is.

Elsewhere on this week's episode, Michael and Bryce discuss the "Brooks-Bryson" spat and wonder if the whole thing is just one big stunt. There's also discussion about Jordan Spieth's latest near-miss, Tiger's first interview since *that* car crash, and good news (with a hint of a warning) for the UK's golf clubs.

What The Phil?! - Mickelson makes golf history!

What The Phil?! - Mickelson makes golf history!

In your LIFE have you seen anything like that?! At the age of 50 years, 11 months and 7 days, Phil Mickelson has become the oldest man ever to win a major courtesy of his thrilling victory in the US PGA Championship at Kiawah Island. That remarkable triumph dominates the chat on this week's episode of The bunkered Podcast as Michael and Bryce reflect on a truly historic week for the game.

Also... Is Brooks Koepka the most unpopular player on tour? What now for Rory McIlroy? And should Bob MacIntyre be focusing more on the PGA Tour?

As if all that wasn't enough, the iconic Jose Maria Olazabal joins us for a fascinating chat. His Seve stories are absolutely NOT to be missed.

After 18 months, Rory McIlroy is back to winning ways on the PGA Tour. The Northern Irishman's victory in the Wells Fargo Championship is the big talking point on this week's episode of The bunkered Podcast.

The “Why are we giving PGA Tour pros even more money?!” episode

The “Why are we giving PGA Tour pros even more money?!” episode

April 26, 2021

The lucrative "Player Impacts Program" has been the talk of golf over the last week or so. A new scheme that rewards the PGA Tour's biggest "needle-movers", it will see $40m distributed amongst ten players at the end of the season... but why?! Michael and Bryce get stuck into that on the latest episode of the award-winning bunkered Podcast.

Elsewhere, former Eisenhower Trophy winner Gavin Dear joins us to talk about what it's like to walk away from your dreams of being a top tour pro and how he has made a success of his new career in golf with high-flying Scots brand Shot Scope.

In the spirit of Oscar season, the guys debate the best (and worst!) golf movies, whilst there's a look back at some of the most embarrassing blunders in bunkered history.

It's another packed episode of the most opinionated podcast in golf.

April 19, 2021

On this week's episode of The bunkered Podcast, Michael and Bryce take a closer look at the European Tour and question whether or not we should be worried about it, given the challenges it has had to face - and continues to face - as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Is it possible that PGA Tour Europe could be on the horizon before long?

Elsewhere, Scottish sports broadcasting legend Dougie Donnelly joins us for a chat about his remarkable career and shares some fantastic stories about Monty, Tiger, Darren Clarke and the late, great Peter Alliss.

Oh, and if you're a member of the 'Mashed Potato' crowd, Michael has some bad news for you...
