Best Golf Podcasts – Top 5
- Golf Subpar

- On The Mark
- The Erik Anders Lang Show
- Local Knowledge
#1 Golf Subpar
Two guys that love everything about golf and having a great time!
GOLF’s Subpar is hosted by former PGA Tour pro Colt Knost and a long time friend of Colt, Drew Stoltz. Colt and Drew love the game of golf. While Colt was the US Amateur winner and played on the PGA Tour for over 10 years, he eventually retired and hosts the podcast and works for the CBS golf coverage team. Drew didn’t quite have as much success as Colt, but loves the game.
These two love to talk about gambling on golf, having a good time and are great at interview current and past players. If you want some inside information to what PGA Tour pros are really like, these two do a great job of diving in and asking the right questions. They do their homework and the 9 questions they ask at the end of the E9 portion of the podcasts is funny and highly entertaining.
As they interview current and past players or celebrities, great stories are told that give you an insight to what life is like on tour or as a celebrity playing at some of the finest country clubs in the world.
While this podcast won’t help your overall game that much, if you love golf, these two do as well! You will enjoy the stories if you are a fan of professional golf and gain some insight into the struggles of professional golfers.
#2 Be The Right Club Today
The best mental game resource out there with practical tips to help you today!
This podcast is hosted by PGA Tour Legend and two time Major Champion Hal Sutton along with a star instructor in Chase Cooper. If you are looking for an edge in your game on how to play better from a mental game approach this is your go to podcast. I spent many years wondering what goes through the mind of professional golfers. Well, Hal Sutton delivers. His ability to share his stories as well as ask the right questions is a game changer and provides the insight many of us have been seeking for years.
The guests are comfortable with Hal and will dive into the answers and not give your basic media response so commonly found in post round press conferences. We have learned about the struggles with golf swings and the lack of confidence that even professionals have to deal with.
Hal is old school, which is a great thing! Chase is a quality player himself and both are working to help the next generation of golfers and teach daily at their golf center.
My major takeaway from listening to every podcast they have put out there is to trust your decision, commit to the shot and swing with confidence. When you let self doubt creep in, you are bound to daily. You don’t need to make a swing change after every swing, instead work on your commitment to your shot. When I take this approach to the golf course, I play much better and commit to this approach for 18 holes.
#3 On The Mark by the PGA Tour
Great insight into the golf swing with some of the best instructors in the world!
Hosted by Mark Immelman, this podcast gets some of the top stars and instructors on the podcast. If you are looking for pure swing analysis and dive into the teaching methods of the world’s top instructors this is the podcast for you.
Mark is an instructor himself and a college golf course in addition to work on the broadcast teams on the PGA Tour. You can improve your game, learn swing techniques of the top teachers and gain insight into the mental game and course strategy of the top golfers in the world.
Mark is the older brother of 2008 Masters Champion Trevor Immelman and has a wealth of knowledge. He also isn’t afraid to dive into an instructor’s approach and ask the key questions to help the listener get a quality visual of the approach.
#4 The Erik Anders Lang Show
Someone else that loves golf as much as you and has great experiences!
Any everyday person who loves golf and has committed his life to providing quality content for the listener. He is on a journey of his own to capture experiences and share them with his listeners/viewers all related to golf. There are no swing tips, but instead he tries to uncover WHY we gof, not necessarily HOW we go.
#5 Local Knowledge
Golf Reporting at it’s finest. A true deep dive!
A deep dive by great reporters makes this podcast a great listen. Daniel Rapaport, Alex Myers and Keely Levins bring together a great deal of research and interviews to provide the listener with insight into life on tour or golf in general. The podcast is highly professional with insight and perspectives you might not find elsewhere. The leg work done to complete a show of this quality takes time and they produce great results.

My Secret To Golf Improvement
Let’s face it, in order to get really good at golf, we must practice frequently. About four years ago, I made the leap and invested in a golf simulator build for my garage. I went with a SkyTrak Launch Monitor and the TGC software and can now play over 100,000 courses including Augusta, Pebble Beach, Bethpage Black, Whistling Straits. St. Andrews and many other of the top 100 courses in the world.
This golf simulator setup, which is more affordable that you might imagine, has been a game changer. I can now play golf everyday of the year regardless of rain, snow, cold weather or time of day. I can practice or play rounds of golf. I can stand in the 11th fairway at Augusta and with the auto-rewind feature I am able to practice my approach shots from various differences.
