Premiering Tuesday, February 11, Subpar is a new and creative take on golf and golf lifestyle that will include commentary, tour access, behind-the-scenes stories and comedic insights from two well-known – and in-the-know – golf personalities. Colt Knost and Drew Stoltz have more than 20 years of combined experience—from playing on the tour, in pro-ams and member-guest events, and through memorable golf trips around the globe. They have met, experienced, beat and lost to most of the pros and athletes who love the game as much as they do. Colt and Drew’s familiarity with golf and all its inner workings, along with their quick wit, yield an extremely entertaining and original perspective.

Subpar will have new installments every Tuesday. The audience will be treated to a wide variety of topics and segments. Whether its one-on-one interviews with VIPs, golf news of the day, what to watch, or a good natured prank or gambling tip, Colt and Drew will get their fans up to speed on everything going on in golf—and will deliver it with an insightful and light-hearted touch that only they can provide.

The opening episodes of the weekly program will feature provocative interviews from some of the top names from the worlds of golf and entertainment, including U.S. Open champ Gary Woodland as well as international stars Jon Rahm and Kiradech Aphibarnrat.

Subpar will be recorded on video in the 8AM/GOLF.com studios in Scottsdale, Arizona, and distributed across GOLF’s platforms—including on YouTube, as a podcast, through social media outlets, and directly on the GOLF.com site.
