SOG Ep 098: Distance, Money and Brandel Chamblee
Geoff Shackelford, Mike Clayton and host Rod Morri delve into recent happenings in the world of golf and analyse what it means for the bigger picture. From the distance debate (of course) and changes in the PGA Tour schedule to whether a $15 million payday is off putting and is the LPGA playing courses that are too easy? All that comes under the microscope as well as Brandel Chamblee’s surprise switch of position back to advocating for bifurcation of the professional and amateur game.
