On this week’s edition of the podcast we had a lot to get through, from recapping the triumphant return of the KPMG Women’s Irish Open to reacting to news of the PGA EuroPro Tour’s demise. Leona Maguire’s weekend heroics ensured massive crowds descended on Dromoland Castle and while the Cavan star’s performance will no doubt inspire a new generation, the next generation of male golfers were hit with news that their platform on the EuroPro Tour had been pulled from under their feet. We chat the impact of both stories and look ahead to this week’s Alfred Dunhill Links where Pádraig Harrington, Shane Lowry and Rory McIlroy are all in action. We also look back at a surprisingly enjoyable Presidents Cup, an event that added to an encouraging week all round for Team Europe’s Rome Ryder Cup bid. We hope you enjoy the listen.

On this week’s edition of the podcast there was only one place to start as Matthew McClean came out on top of an All-Ireland Final against Hugh Foley at the prestigious U.S. Mid-Amateur. Major dates at the US Open and the Masters now await the Malone man in 2023 after he ended a run of near-misses in fine style against his Irish international teammate. There was also plenty to cover on the pro scene, from Robert MacIntyre’s Italian job to Danny Willett’s horror three-putt to where a Cam Smith win in Chicago stands in golf’s pecking order. And last but by no means least, we also look ahead to this week’s KPMG Women’s Irish Open at Dromoland Castle where home hero Leona Maguire is the pre-tournament favourite. As ever, we hope you enjoy the listen. Don’t forget to subscribe and let us know what you think.
On this week’s edition of the podcast we had three global wins to celebrate as this little island of ours continued to punch well above its weight on golf’s world stage. Shane Lowry’s victory at the DP World Tour’s flagship event at Wentworth will live long in the memory as he got the better of Rory McIlroy down the stretch to claim another mega win. Not to be outdone and clearly inspired, Lowry’s great friend Pádraig Harrington picked up his hat-trick of PGA Champions Tour wins on Sunday night while a weekend of unprecedented celebrations began with Stuart Grehan claiming a maiden EuroPro win after a seven-hole epic playoff battle against Ballymena’s Dermot McElroy. There was plenty to recap at home too, including a magnificent course-record win for Liam Grehan at Millicent and the latest from the AIG Cups and Shields. As ever, we hope you enjoy the listen.

On this week's edition of the podcast we recap a jam-packed week of golf from the worlds of competition with consequence to the latest LIV Golf event in Boston.

We also discuss another top-10 for Leona Maguire as she shows form ahead of the eagerly-anticipated Women's Irish Open. There was a big week for Tom McKibbin on the Challenge Tour, pennants won and hearts broken at the AIG Cups and Shields at Tramore, and an emotional victory for Oliver Wilson in HimmerLand.

On this week’s edition of the podcast we recap the FedEx Cup finale where Rory McIlroy completed his hat-trick of PGA Tour Championship titles.

On this week’s edition of the podcast we were delighted to catch up with the winner of the 112th Irish PGA Championship and now three-time Irish PGA Champion, Damien McGrane. The former European Tour winner turned Head Pro at Carlow showed plenty of retained ability to put the field to the sword at Carne Golf Links. Not only does McGrane reflect on the week that was, but he also looks back on his own playing career and explains how the playing side of golf has taken a back seat of late as he looks to give back to the game.

On this week’s edition of the podcast we were delighted to be joined by the K Club’s own Liam Grehan on the eve of his first appearance on the Challenge Tour. The Irish Challenge tees off on the K Club’s Palmer South course on Thursday where Grehan recorded a sizzling 66 to claim second place at the K Club PGA Pro-Am earlier this month.

On this week’s edition of the podcast we recap a memorable week at The Open where Cam Smith stole the show from Rory McIlroy with a remarkable 64 to win his first Major title. We discuss a tale of two putters at St Andrews and what the result means for the main protagonists, with Smith rumoured to be LIV-bound and McIlroy major-less for another year despite an incredible season of near-misses. As ever, we cover the Irish angle from The Open and beyond, with another tour ‘W’ in the bag for the island courtesy of Ballymena’s Dermot McElroy on the EuroPro Tour, and a home win for Hugh Foley at the North of Ireland Championship.

On the eve of this week’s historic 150th Open, we dive deep into all things St Andrews, from the six-strong Irish contingent chasing the Claret Jug, to Tiger’s chances, our own idea of the winner and the Old Course itself. Much has been made about how St Andrews will cope with this new breed of golfer and although the wind isn’t forecast as strong as we’d like, there’s enough nuance to ensure a would-be champion will be well and truly tested come Sunday evening. We also run through the latest golf news from elsewhere, highlighted by Stuart Grehan outgunning a local favourite in Straffan to capture the K Club Pro-Am. As always, we hope you enjoy the listen.

On this week’s edition of the podcast there was no shortage of talking points, from the future of the Irish Open to the JP McManus Pro-Am and the Open at St Andrews. Mount Juliet was an undoubted success but would a date change appeal to the game’s best players given how they lapped up all things Irish in Adare? JP’s Pro-Am set the world alight, not least because of Tiger Woods’ return to Ireland. We wonder if this year’s Open Championship might be his last? And we round-up all the action elsewhere too, including a first on the island – the inaugural Irish Open for Golfers with a Disability at Roganstown. As ever, we hope you enjoy the listen.

On this week’s edition of the podcast there was only one place to start as Padraig Harrington collected a fourth Major title of his career at the U.S. Senior Open. Harrington held off a strong Steve Stricker challenge to win his first USGA title by a single stroke, making it two Irish wins on the weekend after a first pro win for West Waterford’s Gary Hurley on the Alps Tour. There was also a top-10 for Stephanie Meadow at the KPMG Women’s PGA where slow play and Lexi Thompson was the talk of the weekend despite In Gee Chun’s victory. We also chat a near miss for Ruaidhri McGee on the Alps Tour and look ahead to this week’s Irish Open at Mount Juliet. As ever, we hope you enjoy the listen.

On this week's edition of the podcast we analyse the PGA Tour's response to the LIV Golf threat and wonder where men's golf goes from here. As prize money increases, the rich are about the get richer but at what cost to those at the base of golf's earning pyramid? Speaking of money, the KPMG Women's PGA Championship announced a significant prize bump, doubling its purse to $9m ahead of this week's action at Congressional. We discuss the chances of Leona Maguire and Stephanie Meadow as Major opportunity knocks once more. As ever, there was plenty of lively debate. We hope you enjoy the listen, subscribe, and let us know what you think.
On this week’s edition of the podcast we recap a wild one for golf. A week that began with those defecting to the controversial LIV series and facing the wrath of the media, ended with Rory McIlroy delighting in eclipsing Greg Norman’s 20 PGA Tour career wins at the Canadian Open. There was also a monumental win for Sweden’s Linn Grant at the Scandinavian Mixed; the 22-year old beating Henrik Stenson into second place by a whopping 9 shots. But while golf showed up Sunday in all its glory, major questions remain due to the bottomless pockets of LIV. We don’t claim to have the answers, but we do our best to pick apart the madness and plot a way forward for the game we all love. As ever, we hope you enjoy the listen.

On this week's edition of the podcast we were delighted to have Leona Maguire on the phone ahead of this week's $10m U.S. Women's Open at Pine Needles. Back in North Carolina, where she enjoyed a remarkable collegiate career at Duke University, Maguire is hoping a return to a happy hunting ground might trigger an upturn in fortunates following three missed cuts heading into this week's event. Maguire is joined by Stephanie Meadow who will also look to shine at women's golf's richest tournament having finished third at the tournament on her pro debut in 2014. Away from golf's main event this week, the JP McManus Pro-Am is shaping up to be a major in itself. We chat more big announcements with Scottie Scheffler and Jordan Spieth among those set to tee up at Adare Manor. There's Ryder Cup news, no news from LIV Golf which is news in itself, and much, much more. As ever, we hope you enjoy the listen. Don't forget to subscribe and let us know what you think.
On this week’s edition of the podcast we recap an eventful US PGA Championship where Justin Thomas captured his second Wanamaker Trophy at Southern Hills. From JT’s playoff win over Will Zalatoris to agony for Mito Pereira, and another top-10 for Rory McIlroy, we dive deep on everything from Tulsa, including what a tied-ninth finish means for the ever-improving Seamus Power and Shane Lowry coming to the defence of a certain Olympic teammate.

The Irish Golfer podcast returns after a mid-season hiatus and we had plenty to catch up on from our studio on the road at Slieve Russell. The K Club heralded a new era for the Irish Open and Irish Challenge in the lead up to the Ryder Cup at Adare in 2027. We react to the news, discuss the classic links -v- parkland debate and ponder future dates for the tournament. Host Peter was away at Augusta for the Masters and he fills us in on his trip, from Tiger's heroics to what the performances of Rory, Shane and Seamus could mean for their respective seasons. We talk all the latest from Greg Norman's LIV Golf Invitational, round-up all the Irish tour news from at home and abroad and as ever, we pick out our heroes and villains of the piece.

On this week's edition of the podcast we start with a brutal Bay Hill test where the best players in the world were made to look silly at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Rory McIlroy felt like the course was more Pirate's Cove than PGA Tour but was the four-time Major winner's 'crazy golf' assessment an accurate one? We dive into course setup, Scottie Scheffler shining brightest, a nearly week for GMac, a poor weekend for Rory and much more. Leona Maguire didn't have her best stuff but she finished tied 13th in Singapore where Jin Young Ko continued to raise the bar. We also have everything from Kenya and the Challenge Tour to the latest on Europe's Ryder Cup captain and how ongoing SGL speculation is harming Europe's decision making process.
