Scott Van Pelt joins the show and shares his favorite memories from Augusta National, particularly the 2019 Masters when he and ESPN colleague Andy North were on their broadcast set and heard the roars for Tiger Woods as he won the green jacket and embraced his kids. Van Pelt and North got emotional watching that unforgettable moment.

Van Pelt, who anchors "ESPN SportsCenter with SVP," also describes an emotional edition of his popular "SportsCenter" segment, "One Big Thing." Those memories naturally lead to a discussion of what his late father, Sam, meant to him, and his love for his daughter, Lila, and sons Sam and Charlie. Van Pelt describes what his home life is like and how good it makes him feel to pick up his kids from school and treat them to an occasional ice cream.

He also shares some stories about Tiger Woods from the '90s and his fun relationship with Justin Thomas. Van Pelt wraps the show by talking about his own golf game and some fond memories playing public golf as a kid growing up in Maryland.
