After a decorated playing career that included eight PGA Tour wins and two Ryder Cup appearances, Brad Faxon has fashioned an equally successful second life as a broadcaster and putting guru to the stars. The pride of Rhode Island joins the podcast on the heels of a thrilling U.S. Open finish to reflect on what made Brookline such an enjoyable venue, and why we’re now seeing the fruits of his labor with Rory McIlroy.
Faxon also dives into the current state of the flat stick, giving context to the rise of mallets and AimPoint green reading. But stick around for the time Greg Norman called him to an impromptu players-only meeting before the 1994 Shark Shootout. Those details might sound familiar.
