Revving The Pod Up

For those who have been a part of helping The Perfect Number Podcast grow, thank you! May was the best month by far (equaling the downloads from the previous three months combined). Look for a lot more in the coming weeks, including a fantasy preview of this week’s U.S. Open, which is up now with […]

Episode 12 – Golf Data

Yes, I have failed in blogging for every podcast, but this one is the reason I launched the podcast. I find the endless amount of data to be fascinating in the sport. Who is the best putter? We have a zillion data sets to try and answer this question. Which stat correlates most with success? […]

Episode Eight – Masters Picks

In 2014, I said I would always pick Bubba Watson to win the Masters if he showed solid form leading up to the tournament. After Jordan Spieth won in 2015, I said he would win so many green jackets that you’d be a fool not to pick him every year. I am picking Justin Rose […]

Episode Seven – Evolution

I don’t think anybody would be surprised to hear that the professional game of golf is rapidly changing. It is bigger, faster, more athletic, stronger, more precise and a much bigger business. While many in the game blame the ball, it’s really much more than that. Paul Stankowski won twice on the PGA Tour, in […]

Episode Six – Golf Media

This was a tough one to approach because of how embedded in the golf “media” I am and not wanting to be too much of a homer or critic. I don’t think there is a sport that struggles with how to appeal to a wide range of audiences quite like golf. That isn’t a criticism […]

Episode Five – The Rise of TopGolf

Episode Four – Is Golf Healthy?

Yes, the NCAA Tournament is the next major sporting event to keep an eye on, but with the Super Bowl in the past, there is a gap in the sports landscape that needs to be filled. Is golf poised for a bigger piece of the pie? With the help of Ryan Ballengee of The Golf […]

Episode 3 – The Tiger Effect

This is a huge week in golf for a number of reasons, but the most notable has to be the return of Tiger Woods to competitive golf. As somebody who was standing there when Tiger’s glutes didn’t fire in 2015, I can confidently say that this comeback feels different. Every shot will be tweeted and […]

Episode 2

I saw Dustin Johnson torch the field in Maui two weeks ago. To me, it’s hard to argue somebody is a better golfer in the world than DJ, but that’s what arguments are for. Is he the consensus number one? No, especially if you track the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings. That would be Rickie Fowler. Rickie?! Yep. […]

The Perfect Number Podcast

I had been toying with the idea of podcast for a long time and finally came to the realization it was time to take the plunge. But what do you produce to be relevant and not muddy the already-crowded waters? I’m a bit of a geek. I’m definitely a golf geek. Why not explore my […]
