Get a Grip with Shane Bacon

Get a Grip with Shane Bacon

Hosted by broadcaster Shane Bacon, Get a Grip is a golf-centric podcast making light of a rather stuffy sport with legitimate insight into the game. It’s essentially the public golf course of podcasts. The show will offer a look into the PGA Tour week in and week out and have some fun at both the players' and golf fans’ expenses.

A day later and after a quick meeting with the man in charge of loops and both Will and Shane found themselves carrying bags on the mo...
