With his 2021 season underway, Canada’s Taylor Pendrith returns to the show to give our listeners an update on his life, on and off the tour.
We discuss his recent appearance at the Puerto Rico Open and other opportunities he will have on the PGA TOUR this year. At the same time he lays out his goals and focus on the Korn Ferry Tour this season, takes us inside his bag to see what equipment he is using and testing, explains what strange snack his caddy, Mitch, has slipped into the bag, discusses the surge of Mike Weir on the PGA TOUR Champions, and, of course, shares some Maple Leafs talk. We also chat about the role of sponsors in the development of young golf pros and what house-warming parties for golf pros have in common for golf pros and everyone else. (Hint: some assembly required)
We introduce you to our new producer, Brendan Kennedy, an emerging golfer and sound engineer for a Juno Award-winning band.
Plenty of Collin Morikawa talk as we debate his career ceiling, as well as The Week That Was with our Birdies, Bogeys, Pars, and Honorable Mentions.
The Mail Bag is bursting with listener questions about Patrick Reed equipment deals, favourite golf course meals, putting instruction books, golf pros and their relationship with social media, wing sauces, and club pro purchasing dilemmas.

Big-hitting Canadian Taylor Pendrith joins the show fresh off play in Panama and Colombia on the Korn Ferry Tour. The two-time winner on the Mackenzie Tour in 2019 shares thoughts on his game, the difficulty of playing some shorter golf courses, the travails of pro golf travel, and his aspirations to play in the RBC Canadian Open this year.
We discuss the triumph by Nick Taylor at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the fine play by Alena Sharp at the Vic Open in Australia, and the impact of the coronavirus on the LPGA Tour schedule.
We bat around whether Bryson Dechambeau should be listed among the "fittest" athletes in the world, and discuss Rory McIlroy's return to #1 in the world.
In Birdie vs Bogey we take on dogs on the golf course, courses adding hickory shafted clubs to their rental fleets, courses charging people more to walk, and speed rounds by tour pros.
The Mail Bag brings us questions on deciding if you are ready for tournament play, our favourite piece of golf equipment all-time, and choosing one thing we would change in golf right now to foster growth.
