“The Shotgun Start with Andy Johnson of The Fried Egg and Brendan Porath of SB Nation is a podcast waiting for you early in the morning that quickly blasts through a variety of topics (usually) related to golf and (ideally) relevant to the day. It covers news from the pro tours around the world, amusing and important topics from the amateur game the rest of us play, and some irreverent stuff in between. There will be short interviews, previews, reviews, and dives into the archives. It provides what you need to know on golf through a rapid and fun catch-up discussion.”
FunGolf Opinion: The dynamic between the Andy and Brendan is great. They have made us laugh out loud nearly every episode. They’re knowledgeable but don’t ram it down your throat, a very lighthearted but competent look at the game. In our top 5 golf podcasts and with three episodes a week these guys are relentless in producing content!
(4.7 Stars from 36 Ratings)
“The fried egg dives deep into the topics of professional golf, golf course architecture and amateur golf. Guests range from PGA Tour winners to the world’s greatest architects to great amateur players.”
FunGolf Opinion: Engaging and funny, topical subject matter but with a very humorous take on the game. Great guests from PGA pros to directors of golf courses. Worth a listen.
(3.7 Stars from 14 Ratings)

With short detailed podcasts this is a very easy listen and one which you will soon want to binge on the back catalog. With over 260 episodes you’ll have plenty to get into on your playlist.

“The Rough Cut Golf Podcast with Peter Finch.”
FunGolf Opinion: The YouTube legend Peter Finch interviews some really interesting names from the world of golf and social media. The episode with Rick is well worth a listen just for the quality of the banter. No updates since July but Peter is a very busy man so I’m sure he’ll get around to producing some more quality podcasts very soon.

“Three bang average golfers discussing all things golf”
FunGolf Opinion: Love this podcast, could become a cult classic in the same way the Peter Crouch podcast took off. These guys have great personalities and make very enjoyable listening. Much like having a good chat with my mates down the pub, good stuff. This is great as it will resonate with us other average golfers. We also loved the title ‘Bryson breaks golf’! One of the best golf podcasts in 2020 and beyond!
(4.5 Stars out of 21 Ratings)
FunGolf Opinion: Flying the flag for Ladies Professional Golf, and Scotland, this is a really good podcast, if you haven’t found it yet you’re missing out.

“Hosted by Chris Michela and Brian Shenefelt, Duff City Podcast covers everything golf and we’re not too serious about it. We’ll cover PGA tournament previews, general golf talk, golf DFS, and subtly track down Jason Dufner every so often. Tune in weekly as we provide entertaining commentary to the heated topics in our beloved sport of golf.”
FunGolf Opinion: This has become a firm favourite although it’s really new. We love the style of how this is delivered, regular guys who are into golf in a big way. Your ‘would you rather’ discussions are a really fun way to consider the game and have certainly got us thinking about what we would choose. We’re really hoping for much more content to come from these guys.
“This is a show hosted by Golf Magazine Top 100 Teacher and ranked #1 in North Carolina by Golf Digest, Jason Sutton, “aka The Guru” in which he has top teachers and coaches in the golf industry on to share their techniques for success in golf, life and personal development. The goal is to dissect and uncover traits, tactics, habits and applications that will help the teachers but also be applicable to other businesses and occupations.” https://www.golfgurutv.net/
