One of the most anticipated events on the golf calendar, the Masters, is over and we take the time to examine every angle of a record-breaking week.
The fine play by winner Dustin Johnson, the surprises, the poor play, the Canadian angle, we cover it all and examine why this Masters was different but was still compelling to watch.
Birdie vs Bogey brings up even more Masters topics and check up on how our draft picks fared at Augusta National.
Enhancing our look at the week is a feature interview with Australian journalist and broadcaster Luke Elvy. As the commentator for the 15th and 16th holes of The Masters says, he gives us ten years of perspective in thirty minutes. It’s worth a listen and will have you ready for the next Masters in just five months.

The AIG Women's British Open is front and centre for the show this week as we discuss the remarkable victory at Royal Troon by Sophia Popov.
Dustin Johnson also gets our attention for his -30 performance at TPC Boston and we try to figure out if it was boring or tremendous.
While Dustin's play looked like a video game, we brought in actual video game people for this week's feature interview. Joining us for unprecedented insight into the new PGA TOUR 2K21 game that has everyone's attention is John McCarthy of HB Studios, the Canadian developer based in Nova Scotia. As the Senior Audio Engineer, John shares some cool details from behind the scenes. Along for the show is CBS Sports broadcaster Luke Elvy. The Aussie, who is a veteran of twelve Masters tournaments and dozens of majors, lends his voice to the game as a commentator and shares what he and booth partner Rich Beem added to the game.
We play a "who said it" quote game, and in the mail bag take on questions about the life span of golf shoes, if Dustin Johnson cares more about wins or money, when we think the no-fan policy will end in pro golf, and who do we think among the current crop of women and men pros would still excel with golf equipment from 100 years ago.
