Golf Unfiltered Podcast 50: Shaun Micheel


The Golf Unfiltered Podcast celebrates its 50th episode this week by welcoming 2003 PGA Champion Shaun Micheel to the show! Shaun and I discuss how he got hooked on golf while growing up in Orlando, Fla. He then explains what it took for him to make the jump from collegiate golf to the professional circuit, and what he experienced in the early years. This all leads up to Shaun's incredible win at the 2003 PGA Championship at Oak Hill, punctuated by one of the most famous 7-iron shots in the history of the championship.

We then dive deep into the PGA Tour drug policy, including how Shaun was forced to work with its inconsistencies when taking medication for a medical issue in 2005. What does Shaun think about the way the policy is enforced these days? What is his opinion on how the Scott Stallings situation was handled?

Finally, Shaun shares a few stories about playing with Tiger Woods, what he thought of Tiger's recent press conference, and if this is the end of Tiger.
