Which of his junior golf peers will best test Jordan Spieth? Sports Illustrated Golf writer Cameron Morfit's answer might surprise you.

He's going with Ollie Schniederjans.

"You might find that, even though he hasn't won and doesn't have status on the PGA Tour yet, Ollie Schniederjans might end up being the next great player of these guys," Morfit said. "He has a real all-around game that got more seasoned in college than some of these other guys."

On top of that, Morfit shared a few exclusive stories about the bond between Spieth and his caddie Michael Greller both on and off the golf course, divulging which competition Greller can actually beat Spieth in.

From there, fellow Sports Illustrated writer Gary Van Sickle takes over the podcast to discuss Tiger Woods expectations and strategies for betting on golf, particularly the Masters. He shares a great tale about how a dream led him to one of the most crushing lost bets in his life.

Check out that and more in the podcast below.
