Son of actress Goldie Hawn, Hudson is best known for his television roles as Adam Rhodes in the CBS comedy seriesRules of Engagement, alongside actor David Spade, and, most recently, as a main cast member on ABC’s Splitting Up Together. He also is a self-proclaimed “golf nerd,” who has played in a variety of celebrity events, including the PGA TOUR’s popular AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

In this episode, Hudson and McIlroy trade stories about the first time they met Tiger Woods – while Hudson recalls his incredible embarrassment after hitting a tremendous shank – hanging out with Arnold Palmer, and debate the pros and cons of being a kid with siblings versus an only child. Hudson also fondly remembers the rounds at Pebble Beach with his stepfather, actor Kurt Russell.

The Rory & Carson Podcast is co-hosted by McIlroy and television host, radio personality and Emmy Award-winning producer Carson Daly (The Voice, TODAY). Pop culture and sports collide, as the two sit down to provide takes on topics from golf to rugby, TV to music, and everything in between.
