My guest on this epsiode is Parker Coody, part of that young nucleus on the Texas Longhorns golf team that includes his twin brother Pierceson, Travis Vick, Will Thomson, and Cole Hammer. The final tournament of the collegiate season, before it was interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, was the Southern Highlands Collegiate in Las Vegas. USC won the team title, but Parker Coody came from seven shots back, caught Yuxin Lin of USC on the 18th hole to force a playoff which he ultimately won. The prize was an exemption in the PGA Tour's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas.

Our guest this week is the victorious 2019 U.S. Walker Cup Captain, Nathaniel Crosby. This episode was recorded before the matches took place, so it is an interesting conversation with the man that the USGA chose to lead this team to victory at Hoylake. We discussed his experience on the Walker Cup team in 1983, the practice sessions at Pinehurst, and some personal stories that you'd expect from a Crosby.

Our guest this week is Cole Hammer, freshman sensation from the University of Texas Men's Golf Team.
If you follow amateur golf, you've probably heard of Cole Hammer. As a 15 year-old, he burst on the scene at the 2015 U.S. Open. He hasn't slowed down since. After winning the 2018 US Four Ball with partner Garrett Barber earlier this year, he captured the Western Amateur as well as semifinalist honors at the US Amateur AND Junior Amateur. A tremendous young man out of Texas with a bright future ahead of him.
