The Old Man and the Three with JJ Redick and Tommy Alter - June 16, 2021 - 1:11:22

This week on the Old Man and the Three, JJ and Tommy switch sports to golf by welcoming in one of the game's most exciting rising stars in Collin Morikawa. In this brutally honest and fun interview, Collin covers just about everything there is to cover on the course, including what it’s like to swing and miss (literally), the Bryson-Brooks rivalry, the difference between golfers out for a check and those who are there to win, his favorite course, and so much more. He then sticks around for an amazing EAT PRAY DUNK segment that touches on golf’s "extra curricular activities”, hidden food gems, his social life, and the one course he would spend the rest of his days on. It’s a gimme… you can miss this one.
