Enjoyed all nine series on Lab Golf, interesting story of hard work of a start up putter company and how it integrated into pro golfers. Lucas Glover storied comeback was the best and and all people's involved from pro surfer Kelly Slater to the Navy Seal council. What I expected with LIV,...Read full review »

6 episodes and counting about LAB Golf. I wish I owned LAB for all the free advertising. Nice story but excessive. Can we talk about current golf environment please?

Matt is clueless 🙄

Hard to beat the Fire Pit pods, great takes from Alan Shipnuck on golf news, wisdom drops from Michael Bamberger, and feel good vibes from Matt Ginella. Always looking forward to new episodes. The Fire Pit taps into the real love and good vibes of a game shared, between friends, family, and...Read full review »

This show is so well made it’s sometimes hard to believe. Starting from the theme music to the way Matt Ginella interviews are edited so perfectly it feels like you ARE sitting by a fire listening to a story. The topics are perfect for those appreciating golf as a hobby with real depth and history.

Great pod on billy walters and phil. Walters should buy you dinner because you just sold a bunch of his books!

Thank you for the PGA pro crisis from a GOLF Pro. Please talk to someone from GOLFTEC, they are the biggest employers of PGA professionals. We are run by a PGA professional and the biggest advocate of 40 hour work weeks and 2 days off. Keep up the great work.

…June 14, 2023: Glad to hear that Alan’s forthcoming tome will tell the “true” tale of the beleaguered MbS, his trillions offshore, and his bone saws. After all, MbS is such a victim. Just ask the thousands killed or maimed by his henchmen; well, the few that are still breathing. *** Also nice to...Read full review »

Really nice story on Tony Gwynn, love all the x-players and coaches analysis of Mr. Gwynn. Role model for anyone to follow, hard worker who had extraordinary talent, family focused and loyal to those through his career. Thank-you for reminding us of not only a great baseball player but a great...Read full review »

I like good debate but Matt is terrible.

The weekly shows are great. Just finished “To the Linksland”. I would love to hear a podcast on your favorite golf books, even your own. Find a fourth is great. All the guests have expanded my deep appreciation for the game.

Need a 4th and Firedrill are the best golf pods right now. Shipnuck and Bamberger being great context and stories and Ryan brings great perspective and humor.
Masrunner via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/13/23
Good topics and conversation but PLEASE find a new clip of music to replace that 20-30 sec clip at the beginning. It’s laughable. That is all
deebo4 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/15/23
This is one of my regular listens. I like their perspectives and golf knowledge. It’s all good until the once an episode blip where Michael uses some word that has me looking for a dictionary… One of those “above the masses”words where you roll your eyes and can’t help but think how ridiculous...Read full review »

The love for the game AND great journalism is foremost in this podcast with Michael and Alan. Having enjoyed Michael and Alan’s stuff in the past it was an easy podcast to subscribe to. I really look forward to Ryan’s contribution now too. Great stuff!
Billy EE Kidd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/23/22
Ryan French is a tough listen, but enjoy Alan, Michael, Geoff, etc - can we get a rotation or other viewpoints for that slot.
KJ1104 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/12/22
Listened to latest podcast and was disappointed. First half hour was the hosts amusing themselves with their banter. They then decided to spend too much time discussing the future of golf in Poland rather than the victory of the 56th ranked golfer in the world. They finally get to the Tiger talk...Read full review »

Great insight into the PGA/LIV battle. Experienced reporters giving the inside scoop. Love it.
Actorgirl444 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/17/22
I've tried a lot of different Golf podcasts but there's only 2 that I'll listen to now - Golfchannel's Hoggard and Lavener, and this one. To be fair I've listened to Shipnuck and Bamburger when they worked for other publishers and they deliver a interesting, well informed show.Read full review »

Audio bad, and too much political analysis that I don’t want to hear when I’m just trying to enjoy a podcast.
bogey ball via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/19/22
Intelligent and pleasant people who know and love their subject . Geoff Ogilvy always an added bonus
KimberleyOak via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/18/22
Bamberger is essentially copy and paste Golf Twitter opinions. The Davis Love interview is especially pathetic. Challenge his view of LIV & the PGA Tour just like you would Phil, P Reed or Bryson. By not doing so you are showing your bias
skasting via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/06/22
Love the show and the intro. I can’t stop singing that clip. Best golf pod out there .
rnacs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/18/22
Everything you need to know about golf.

Golf is a beautiful game. Please leave petty politics out. Thanks.
In2Bate via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/13/22
It’s all politics with most of them except Monday Q. Really wish Monday Q would have ended up somewhere else. They have an obvious liberal agenda.
Ryanw83 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/18/22
Bambergers audio is awful. He has great content give that man an upgrade!
Bfinnh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/17/22
Growing tired of this infatuation with the Saudis and golf. Now trying to drag politics into the equation? No thanks.
Not_my_real_name_yet via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 05/17/22
Amazing podcast on Forest Dunes. All of Matt’s podcasts are amazing, but if you were going to submit one for awards consideration this would be it. Just played Forest Dunes and the Loop, wished I would have listened to the podcast before I went out there. Keep up the amazing work!
FozzieRao via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/23/21
I absolutely love the stories being told in this pod. These stories we listen to here are what we aren’t hearing in mainstream golf media, even though we should. I recommend this podcast to anyone I meet in the golf industry or on the links. I’d give 20 stars if I could!
Akrog16 via Apple Podcasts · Spain · 08/03/21
Love the format and how the podcasts live into the name. Really seems as you are listing in on people telling stories around a fire pit. Thanks for the insights, things to think about, and smiles. Looking forward to hearing how this develops over time

A beautiful story telling golf podcast; transporting the listener on a journey that delicately balances old skool golfing nostalgia (Ashworth clothing brand) whilst bringing to the listener’s attention to really important present day issues (NCAA Baton Rouge scandal). The Fire pit is expertly...Read full review »

I listened to many of your episodes today as I serviced the pump that supplies our course with irrigation water. This is Normally an awful, yeoman’s task but was much more of a delight with your show playing. Thank you for the awesome interviews and stories!!!
@wgc_greens via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/22/21
Addition of Ryan to the team is icing on the cake. Keep the stories coming!
leftygolferord via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/18/21
But I’m not interested in golf folks trying to be overly woke college professors. There is no clean money! I will continue listening for now. Please get back to what you do best...entertainment, please

Really well done and some great stories. The Arnold Palmer - Roger Maris story is can’t miss for any sports fan!

Great story by the crew at Oakmont at the USOpen 2016. The went to visit Arnold in Latrobe and had a fantastic day. The way they described it was almost like being there. Getting to listen to the King was really cool as well. Great Podcast hats off to Matty and the guys.

⛳️⛳️Many thanks to all involved for the laughs and heartfelt stories told. This “game” brings so much joy, fellowship and camaraderie that needs to be told. You have captured this.
