On the heels of a pro-am round with Tony Finau and JR Smith, Soly recaps his day at the BMW Championship with Tron and DJ before diving into the rumblings after Tiger's meeting with some of the top ranked guys on tour. Then it's back to the courtroom as Patrick Reed sues Brandel Chamblee and the Golf Channel for $750 million. DJ helps us take a gleeful look at the absurdity of the legal filing - as well as P's choice of representation - for some much needed laughs.

Tony Finau is the Hottest Golfer and Gianna Gravalese
The Course Of Life
At this weekend's Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit, Tony Finau shocked the world and claimed the title of the World's Hottest Golfer, claiming his second consecutive victory. Hosts Alex Lauzon and Michael Russell ate their words and ponder Finau's future chances of winning the FedEx Cup and a major (1:39). Meanwhile at Trump Bedminster, LIV Golf made waves once again as Henrik Stenson proved why he jumped from Ryder Cup Captaincy to the Saudi backed tour, claiming victory in his first event against, as is now usual, poor performing field. Alex and Michael also share thoughts on David Feherty's new gig in the tower, and the heartbreaking announcement from Bubba Watson (5:56). The PGA Tour announced the new 2022-2023 season schedule and purse sizes, showing that LIV is making changes on the legacy tour as payouts increase by some $5-$8 million, or more, for many events in what will be the final wrap-around golf season (11:31). The newly minted CoL TopGolf Tour kicked off this weekend as Alex began a season of visiting different Top Golfs across the country with a trip to his local Austin driving range and watering hole (13:27). The final regular season event kicks off in North Carolina for the Wyndham Championship as the Tour regulars jockey for position to make it into the FedEx Cup Playoffs (15:35). In Tuned In, Michael is revisiting a classic from his childhood featuring Superman and Lois Lane, while Alex is still getting his fill of "van life" after chatting with Matt Cardis last week (17:25). This week's guest is Gianna Gravalese, a TV, radio, and internet host from NESN, Dirty Water Media, and KISS108 in Boston. Gianna chats with Alex about her journey into Dirty Water Media, life eating and driving her way through the Boston food scene, and rubbing elbows with music's biggest stars at the annual Kiss Concert (20:43). Alex and Michael are perplexed at the name change of the former Robby Anderson, who is stealing headlines for his new and not that different legal name (47:41). As the guys #AlwaysEndWithFood, Alex is gearing up for a trip back up to Boston and all the food fun that comes with a trip home, while Michael is hoping Alex enjoys some of his home state's 42 ice cream shops on the New Hampshire Ice Cream Trail (49:42).

Son of a Butch with Claude Harmon
In this episode of GOLF’s Off Course with Claude Harmon III, Tour Coach and GOLF Top 100 Teacher Boyd Summerhays joins to talk shop on all things golf.

Coming from humble beginnings, professional golfer Tony Finau has not forgotten his roots or the true source of the blessings he enjoys. He carries with him the hopes and dreams of the people who made sacrifices to help him arrive where he is at today. Recognizing that on the golf course he is a representative of Jesus Christ and a conduit of His light, Finau also knows that when he goes home at the end of a tournament, he is going home to what is most important. On this week’s episode, we talk about why he is determined to not take anything for granted. "Sometimes that person that He wants me to be isn't the person that I want to be. But as you pray, these things, they can coexist. Your will turns to His and you can start to do some cool things. You start to see your life change in a way that you would never imagine because you have prayed often enough to know that He's got a better plan for you than then you have for yourself."
