Morning Read has launched a new partnership with the "Beyond the Clubhouse Podcast." In this episode, Paul Azinger joins the show to preview this week's PGA Tour stop at The Concession, a course where he's also a member, located just down the street from his house in Bradenton, Fla. 

Azinger jokes that he's "600 or more" over par in his career at his own course, and he thinks driving will be the biggest key as there is a lot of trouble near the fairways.

He also reflects on his controversial comments about the European Tour from exactly one year ago, and the Patrick Reed rules controversy from Torrey Pines and how it might alter the dynamics of the upcoming Ryder Cup. 

Azinger also talks about Tony Finau's recent close calls, the upcoming Masters and Rory McIlroy's pressure to win there. (McIlroy also is Azinger's favorite player to watch on the driving range.)
