The 3M Open Field is Depleted But Still Has Some Firepower

In this episode, the hosts recap the British Open and look ahead to the 3M Open.

It was a monumental weekend in England at the Open Championship, where first-time entrant Collin Morikawa took the prize, but Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka, and Dustin Johnson still stayed relevant throughout the week. Hosts Alex Lauzon and Michael Russell break down all the fun stories from the week at Royal St Georges.

Meanwhile, the Barbasol Championship saw a 6-hole playoff, continuing the trend of long PGA Tour playoffs this season.

Over on the LPGA Tour, the Jutanugarn sisters head to Tokyo after winning the team event last weekend. And speed golf was the name of the game on Sunday morning as past guest Mark Baldwin got to "play against" Kevin Kisner at the Open.

In other news, Lauzon is planning his big trip out to the First Tee of Greater Austin in a couple weeks, and he's expecting to get trounced by some championship-level kids.

But first, it's a quick look at the 3M Open in Minnesota, where a depleted field still holds some firepower.

This week's guest is Ryan Ballengee, who chats with Lauzon about his golf game, plus the state of the PGA and LPGA tours as they head into the Olympics and Ryder Cup.

Russell is so out of touch with baseball now, he didn't even realize the Yankees and Red Sox were playing when he was in Boston, but not to worry, as COVID reared its ugly head.

And as they #AlwaysEndWithFood, Lauzon and Russell talk about ice cream flavors, including the new Kraft Mac & Cheese flavor.
