Course of Life Podcast

It was a wild weekend at The American Express, as "Course of Life" podcast co-hosts Alex Lauzon and Michael Russell almost had their first winner of the season, only to see Patrick Cantlay's Sunday 61 not be enough as Si Woo Kim closed out the win.

On the LPGA, Jessica Korda recorded the tour's fifth 60 on Saturday, and she held on to win in a playoff on Sunday at the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions. Past CoL guest Cheyenne Knight had a great weekend as well, finishing T-5.

Willie Mack III, another past guest, learned he'll be playing in the Genesis Invitational thanks to an exemption from Tiger Woods, who will be missing from the Genesis and a number of other tournaments as he returns from yet another back surgery.

Premiering at the Waste Management Phoenix Open also will be a second-screen gambling show from Golf Channel, and Lauzon can't wait. It'll be hosted by former CoL guest George Savaricas.

This weekend, the PGA Tour heads to iconic San Diego muni Torrey Pines for the Farmers Insurance Open, and Lauzon shares whom he's eyeing to win it all.

Outside of sports, in the Tuned In segment, Lauzon and Russell are watching some movies, such as "King of Staten Island" (2020) and "Wonder Woman 1984" (2020).

And in Pop Politics, America now needs to worry about two dogs messing up the White House lawn.

This week's guest is Nick Kumpis, a PGA professional who was voted by Golf Digest as one of the best young instructors in the game. Kumpis shares the putting aid that he invented to stay on line, and he shares some tips for the kids on the course, as well.

In the NFL, Lauzon's nightmare continues to come true, as Tom Brady leads the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl, proving that Brady is the GOAT of GOATs.

And as Lauzon and Russell #AlwaysEndWithFood, the diets continue, and Lauzon has prepared a pardon for our listeners.
