Episode 1274: Tiger’s Back – This Time With Emotions And Friends, Munster’s Carbery Jigsaw, Connacht Reach Out, Souness’ Stovepipe
Last year, Tiger Woods could barely walk. Last night, in chaotic, brilliant circumstances, he won his first PGA Tour championship in 5 years to reaffirm his return to the top of the sport. Not only has he battled back from technical, physical, psychological and emotional setbacks, he’s also won a few new friends along the way. Author, podcast host, friend of the show and former Tiger cynic Lawrence Donegan tries to put it all into historical perspective.

Gerry Thornley and Mattie Williams join us to talk about Munster and Joey Carbery’s awkward initial fumblings as they strive to make this relationship work, Connacht have their groove back under Andy Friend, and Felipe Contepomi is adding even more pizzazz to the Leinster back-room.
Plus there’s Souness’ stove-piping, Ken awaits Eoin McDevitt’s return with unbearable anticipation, and we mention Jamie Dornan, Brian O’Driscoll and Condoleezza Rice in the same sentence so it must be Ryder Cup week.
For years, Europe’s dominance in the Ryder Cup was explained away by its team chemistry. This younger generation on American stars, though, has already leveled the playing field in cohesion. https://t.co/0Mdsnv5VJQ
