Gary Williams

EP 066: The Golf Podcast | Live With Gary williams

[EP 066] 

The Golf Podcast | Live Gary Williams – 5 Clubs Golf and SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio Host

Today our hosts, Rafael Kalamat and Mike Bleackley speak with Gary Williams, host of 5 Clubs Golf Podcast and SiriusXM’s PGA Tour Radio personality.

We recap the World Golf Championship (WGC) Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club where Sam Burns drummed Cam Young (6&5) and Rory McIlroy defeated Scottie Schefflerin the consolation match.

The golf ball and bifurcation…. this topic is hot and we exchanged feedback on the complexities of this issue. Michael Whan of the USGA randomly called into Michael Breed’s show having a spirited conversation on why the ball should be controlled, we reference this because it was entertaining, but factful. The future of the game is at stake. Gary shared concise feedback on why the ball should be limited for top level PGA Tour professionals.

Of course, with The Masters around the corner we talked about that too. This years event bodes will for drama with the LIV Golf members showing up to Augusta National Golf Club to compete for the green jacket. We have some laugh-out-loud moments on this topic.

Enjoy the pod. We sure did. Gary has been on the pod 4 times now and never disappoints with his insights, encyclopedic knowledge of golf and its characters.
