(Re)introducing the Drop Zone, a podcast from GOLF.com
Ladies and gentlemen, we have an announcement: the Drop Zone is back. Your favorite GOLF.com co-hosts, Dylan Dethier and myself, Sean Zak, who (attempted to) set Golf Internet ablaze last year with our weekly show covering everything in the game, are officially back, this time in podcast form.
Faithful listeners of the artist formerly known as the GOLF.com Podcast have already heard plenty of our voices over the past month as we’ve batted around some of the most (and least) significant issues in the game and interviewed figures like Notah Begay III, Dylan Frittelli and Shane Bacon. But we want listeners to get a more consistent product. And we want to get into a weekly rhythm of our own. As a result, we’re changing the podcast wallpaper: this is the Drop Zone now.
Expect a new episode at the start of every week. Expect us to second-guess the schedule Tiger Woods is playing. Expect us to try and figure out what’s actually wrong with Jordan Spieth. And expect an extensive breakdown the IMDB page of Brooks Koepka’s girlfriend, Jena Sims. Expect us to try new things and to seek out feedback from you, dear listeners, to try to make this thing as fun as possible.
We hope to add to your understanding and appreciation of the game through our research and reporting, plus share our own passion for the strangest corners of the golf world. And fear not, you’ll still hear plenty from our senior writers Michael Bamberger and Alan Shipnuck, who will be regular guests and continue to take over the feed themselves around big events. All together, that’s the Drop Zone.
This week, we’re weighing in on the Tour Championship in its delicate new format, and catching up with Steve Sands on how his job description changed this year at the Tour Championship — which was famously his wildest week of the year.
In addition to the Drop Zone, GOLF.com will be launching other weekly podcasts catered to the equipment world, travel and more. Fans of Jonathan Wall’s Fully Equipped episodes and Ashley Mayo’s travel tales can expect focused podcasts coming their way soon.
