Taking a close look at the rise of Jewish golfers 

Ben Silverman, left, and Max Homa both won tournaments within days of each other.

For perhaps the first time in history, two Jewish golfers recently won big competitions in a single week: Canadian Ben Silverman won on the Korn Ferry Tour and rising star Max Homa earned his sixth victory on the PGA Tour. To commemorate the Jewish success stories, we invited Dan Rapaport, a golf reporter and podcaster with Barstool Sports, to hang out and chat about how the status of Jews in golf has changed over the decades.

Plus, Gabe and James find the Jewish connections in this year’s Super Bowl, gush about Zach Hyman’s very good year, and answer the unfortunate Kyrie Irving question: Did he get away with it?
