In the final act of what turned out to be a three part USDGC special, we talked to Gregg Barsby, Philo Brathwaite and Steve Brinster. These interviews were recorded Thursday night, after the second round of play. As we all know by now, the final round of the USDGC was cut short due to the impact of Hurricane Matthew, making Jeremy Koling the winner.
Barsby and Brathwaite were first on the mic, and the duo did not disappoint. Long time Final Round Radio listeners will remember Barsby from his epic interview in Episode 7, and it appears that not much has changed in the year and a half since. Philo is also making his second appearance on Final Round Radio (third if you count our Maple Hill special from earlier this year), having held court in Episode 19. Steve Brinster, the 2013 USDGC champion, makes his Final Round Radio debut in the final segment.
Unfortunately, we didn’t have time for the Par 4, Hyzer Line (704.727.6077) or Final 9 in any of these interviews, but they’ll be back in our next episode.
