Podcasts have been growing in popularity over the last few years and with numerous lockdowns around the world, it has given plenty of people who are experts in their field time to create their own podcasts or join others as guest commentators. They can be light-hearted and informal whilst providing a great insight into the lives of someone who you have an interest in.
Whilst the golfing world may not be known for being the first to pick up modern day trends, we look at what podcasts are out there for the golf enthusiast and pick our top 5 golf podcasts for 2021.
Number 5 - Fore Play by Barstool Sports
Number of episodes: 25+
Now this one as you can gather from the title is for an 18+ audience and can be outrageous at times. The "Fore Play," podcasts are golf coverage by the common golfer, for the common golfer. Riggs, Trent, Frankie, Lurch and their wide variety of guests cover everything golf like normal fans sitting at the bar watching tournaments, venting about the game's difficulties, and weighing in on the game's gossip. Classic golf addicts, the "Fore Play" crew brings a young, unique voice to the rapidly-evolving game, discussing freely and openly everything golf. There's nothing like it. If you want a good laugh and talk around golf, this is the podcast for you.
Number 4 - The Erik Anders Lang Show: Golf - Travel - Comedy
Number of episodes: 218
These podcasts hosted by Erik blends golf news with interviews with the likes of Lee Westwood and Maurice Allen the 2018 Volvik long Drive Champion. In Eriks own words he would describe his podcasts as him seeking to uncover the stories of WHY we golf, not necessarily HOW we golf. NO SWING TIPS HERE. Listen in for a mix of his musings, stream of consciousness golf inspired rants, answering listener questions and a look into the life of his golf-crazed, travel-addicted and sleep-deprived journalistic life, plus interviews with golf inspired guests. If you are a keen golfer who loves to travel give this podcast a listen.
