2011: Rory, Tiger and Charl -- Oh my!
The year is ... 2011. All kinds of madness is about to ensue. 21-year-old Rory McIlroy has a four shot lead, but not for long. Seven different men will hold at least a share of the lead during an epic final round. In this episode, we explore why Tiger Woods should have won, how Rory's putting issues glared through the screen, and how we thankfully saw the last of long, baggy slacks on Tour.
2005: Tiger vs. DiMarco
The year is ... 2005. Tiger Woods has a commanding lead, but you'll soon find out he isn't as commanding as he once was. Woods loses that lead, and eventually finds himself in a playoff. What more could you want from Augusta National? In this episode, we'll talk about Peak Tiger, the beef between Phil and Vijay and even riff on the merits of the 16th hole (and why it might need a new Sunday pin). Enjoy!
2004: Mickelson, at long last!
The year is ... 2004. The patrons are restless. It's all questions, no answers. Will Phil fail again? Can Ernie Els tame Augusta National? Is Bernhard Langer the favorite? Who knows.... In this episode, we'll wax poetically about Els' gorgeous swing, Sergio Garcia's early swagger and we'll detail why Phil Mickelson got perhaps the luckiest break in Masters history.
1997: Tiger Woods changes the game
The year is ... 1997, and this Masters is basically over. Remember those records that you recounted forever? They're about to be obliterated by a 21-year-old named Tiger Woods. After missing the cut at Augusta National in 1996, Woods comes back better (and longer) than ever. The game of golf will never be the same. On this episode, we go back in time to understand the meaning of everything Woods accomplished, we discuss why the rest of the field was inadequate and even dive into a previously...
1992: Freddie Boom Boom
The year is ... 1992. Craig Parry (who??) is in the lead. 49-year-old Raymond Floyd is willing himself into contention just a few months before joining the senior tour. And then there's this strapping young American named Fred Couples. Couples is a fan favorite, of course, but can he get it done? Not without A LOT of rain and A LOT of luck.
1987: Larry Mize, in to Win!
The year is...1987. Greg Norman. Seve Ballesteros. Ben Crenshaw. Larry Mize. How is Roger Maltbie the bell of the ball in 1987? Well, he is. One of the most underrated Masters tournaments takes place in '87, largely because of a three-way tie for first place after 72 holes. There will still be a tie after 73 holes. After 74 holes, Masters history will be made. You'll enjoy it.
1986: Yes, sir!
The year is...1986. Jack Nicklaus was told he couldn't win anymore. It was time for Greg Norman to win. Or for Seve Ballesteros to win...again. Not Jack Nicklaus. Well, what do you think happened? We trek back to the mid-80s to see what is often regarded as the greatest Masters of all-time.
1975: Jack becomes the Masters GOAT
The year is...1975. One of the greatest three-horse races in Masters history is taking place. Jack Nicklaus, Johnny Miller and Tom Weiskopf all have a chance to claim the green jacket. Somehow, someway, the Golden Bear triumphs. We go back in time to what is a MUCH different setting at Augusta National. Join us!
Is Tiger Woods' chip in 2005 the greatest shot in Masters history? Larry Mize's chip in 1987 might have been better. Think 1986 is the greatest Masters ever? On A Pod Unlike Any Other, we'll help you make that argument. We'll also tell you 2011 was actually the most exciting.
