The average golfer plays in tons of scramble tournaments yet there is little information available on strategies and approach to golf scrambles. Whether it is a 2-man, 3-man, or 4-man scramble, we talk about ways to maximize your score and enjoyment at your next tournament or outing.
The U.S. Open heads to the Pacific Northwest for the first time for the 115th edition of our national championship of golf. That’s just one of the things that will be new and different about this year’s version of the season’s second major. Rhett Ticconi returns in-studio after playing the host course, Chambers Bay, last year to lend some insight into what we can expect from the links-style course, the coverage from FOX Sports, and who will prevail on Sunday night.
The Finger Lakes Golfer Podcast returns to FingerLakes1.TV as yet another sign that spring in almost here!

This week we talk about Fall Golf… the best time of the year to play golf in the Finger Lakes… while it lasts! Also, it’s Ryder Cup week.
