With a Weak Field at John Deere, It's Time to Get Ready for British Open

Daniel Berger and Steve Stricker headline the Deere, and a brief preview of next week's British Open.
Course of Life

In this week's episode of "Course of Life," hosts Alex Lauzon and Michael Russell look at all the fun stories from the week in Detroit, including Cam Davis's win, Bubba's surprising week, past guest Willie Mack III's full weekend, and defending champion Bryson DeChambeau's exciting week.

But before the final major of the season, it's the John Deere Classic, where a relatively unimpressive field still includes favorites like Steve Stricker and Daniel Berger. And the British Open is only a week away, and everyone's getting ready. And following the Open Championship is the Tokyo Olympics, and the playing field is almost finalized.

In "Tuned In," Russell had to watch a series of horrendous B-movies, the "Has Fallen" trilogy, while Alex was all over Joey Chestnut's record-setting performance in the annual hot dog eating contest.

This week's guest is Drew Forrester, a golf nut who has qualified for this weekend's U.S. Senior Open. Drew chats with Alex about his many misses in qualifying, and his friendship with Bernard Langer.

The guys do a quick check in on the relocated MLB All Star Game, and the NHL's budding dynasty in Tampa Bay. But then it's time to #AlwaysEndWithFood, where it's about July 4th grilling and a little something different involved a spiced peach.
