It was a busy week in the golf world, but one thing is totally clear -- Nelly Korda is the best of the best after claiming the gold medal in Tokyo. She's the first golfer ever to win an Olympic gold medal and a major in the same year.

Hosts Alex Lauzon and Michael Russell break that and more down in this week's episode (which you can listen to below):

Here's more of what Alex and Michael cover this week:

In Memphis at the WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational the Season of the Playoff continued with another playoff. In the end, Abraham Ancer claimed his first PGA Tour victory.

Over at the Barracuda Championship, former guest Mark Baldwin snuck in after claiming a Monday-qualifier spot and then made the weekend.

Jhared Hack, last week's guest, racked up a W on the day his episode was released. We're not saying being on the podcast is good for people but we're not saying it isn't either.

On Thursday, Alex had the honor of visiting the First Tee of Greater Austin, the official charity of the Course of Life. He got to tee it up with some of their best students, and enjoy some foot golf. Check out a video of his visit here: 

The PGA Tour regular season comes to a close this weekend with the Wyndham Championship, where a couple big names are in the field to try to secure a place in the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

In Tuned In, Alex wraps up his summer of watching the Olympics, while Michael listens to the new album by Bleachers, and watches the brand new "The Suicide Squad."

The week's guest is a professional soccer player with the new Austin FC and a former member of Team USA.

Football season is right around the corner, and the preseason is in full swing as Alex's Patriots and Michael's Giants grind towards another season. Meanwhile, Michael's Yankees are surging and Alex's Red Sox are falling apart in the baseball world.

Alex shares his foray into a TikTok food trend as the guys #AlwaysEndWithFood, and Michael continues to ponder opening his own bakery.
