James Sugrue won last year’s Amateur British Open and his whole 2020 was planned out – Augusta in April, the US Open in June, and turning pro in July. Then Covid happened, and his best-laid plans were like the rest of us… put on hold.

But he played the toughest course in world golf last week at the US Open, has Augusta in November to look forward to, and has the Irish Open this week too – thanks in no small part to Lee Westwood! Ireland’s next affable golfing superstar joins us on today’s show.

Eoin starts the pod, not with a tepid take, but with a message for Tipp people…. and somehow goes downhill from there.

Ken outlines why Covid is running amok in this year’s league cup, Sean Dyche talks hedge-fund managers, the rivalry between Clyda Rovers and Mallow gets discussed at Winged Foot, and the Ken-Bot 3000 fulfils his duties.
