In this episode of the Golf Guide Podcast, Kyle recounts the highlights from his recent trip to Bandon Dunes Golf Resort (3:53) and his favorite 9-hole course Aetna Springs (30:00). Then the two hosts get into an in-depth discussion about the various features that make a golf hole bad. Inspired by Rick Vacek's article on golfguide.net, the hosts debate the worst things an architect can do when designing a golf hole. Kyle also wonders what golf scores and handicaps would look like if people kept an accurate account of their scores (44:00). Casey educates Kyle on the finer points of playing fantasy golf (1:23:00), and discusses why Bubba Watson is one of the most annoying players on the PGA Tour (1:30:05). Then the guys discuss their favorite players to follow on Tour right now (1:33:40), and which players not named Tiger Woods they enjoyed watching a decade ago (1:37:30). They wrap up the podcast by reviewing some amazing stats from Tiger's career (1:39:00), and because both Kyle and Casey are unabashed San Francisco Giants homers, they recount a couple amazing stats from Barry Bonds' career (1:40:00).
