“Hosted by broadcaster Shane Bacon and PGA Tour pro Max Homa, Get a Grip is a golf-centric podcast making light of a rather stuffy sport with legitimate insight into the game. It’s essentially the public golf course of podcasts. The show will offer a look into the PGA Tour from a guy between the ropes week in and week out and have some fun at both his peers and golf fans’ expenses.”
FunGolf Opinion: Slick production, with a very well put together podcast. Light hearted conversation but backed up by strong knowledge of the game. Not surprised by the 5 star rating, this is one of the best golf podcasts that you will want to subscribe to so you don’t miss any!

“Mark Immelman isn’t just the older brother and swing coach of 2008 Masters champion Trevor Immelman, he’s a broadcaster on a variety of platforms, one of the leading instructors in the world of golf and happy to help improve your game.”
FunGolf Opinion: This is one of our top choices. A very informative podcast which looks at the game from every angle. It’s been going a very long time, yet the content is still strong. Mark talks to you more as a friend than a presenter. Great stuff!

“Welcome to The Rick Shiels Golf Show podcast! Every Tuesday a new podcast brings you golf chat (and none golf chat) from Rick Shiels. “
FunGolf Opinion: Guy and Rick bounce really well off each other and are extremely entertaining! If you’ve watched the videos (which is highly likely) you’ll love this podcast as well. It’s no surprise that they’ve had over 1m downloads in just 40 episodes. Excellent content and great fun! Another one of the best golf podcasts.

“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)
“Golf Psychology Podcast – Mental Game Sessions with Doc is a podcast for serious golfers who want to improve their mental game performance. Hosted by Dr. Patrick Cohn of Peak Performance Sports, the golf psychology podcast allows junior, collegiate, amateur, and professional golfers to ask Dr. Cohn a question on golf psychology or the mental game of golf.”
FunGolf Opinion: We love this podcast. Everyone has a bad game (more often than you think) and Doc is on hand to help put the mental side of golf in perspective. 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.

In these episodes Mark will be sharing his coaching knowledge, his ideas on golf travel, golf equipment and all thing golf. Making sure he is keeping golf fun for all and trying to help golfers improve along the way.”

“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.

The Best Podcasts of 2022 You’ve Probably Not Heard Yet!
“Join Tom Coyne on his fortnightly forays into the golf’s uncovered corners and characters.”
Fun Golf Opinion: Tom interviews some really entertaining guests from the world of golf, well worth a listen. This is a very popular show in the US but in the UK you might not be as familiar – you should definatley take some time to download some of the 90 episodes in the back catalog. Take some tie to check out their website for all of their previous episodes.
“Welcome to the Faded Golf Podcast, hosted by Mark Juleen and Jon Faulkenberg. A show for the guy that skips out on a beautiful afternoon to go hit it!”
FunGolf Opinion: Down to earth conversation about the game we love. Great fun, and extremely easy listening. We hardly realize that these podcasts are nearly all 1 hour long as the content flows so well. Good fun podcast.

“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 2021 and beyond!
21. On The Dancefloor Golf Podcast
(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. They have some amazing content and conversation but are also joined by some high profile guests. Most recently having 3 LPGA winners on the show. Check them out and you won’t be disappointed!
22. Duff City Podcast
(5 Stars from 2 Ratings)
“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/
