The Tour Junkies Podcast started in 2015 when Augusta, Ga. natives, David Barnett and Pat Perry, decided to take their love of golf betting public by launching the second PGA Tour betting and DFS podcast ever on Apple and Spotify. DB and Pat have been breaking down every major golf event around the world ever since with unrivaled inside knowledge of the courses, key stats, trends, and caddie intel. The boys dish out their favorite outright bets, top 20s, head-to-head matchups, and props each week, but they do it while making every effort to be entertaining in their delivery.

At the 2020 Corales Puntacana Championship, Pat had Hudson Swafford on his betting card as the first-round leader at 100/1. DB published his betting card before the tournament with Swafford to win outright at 150/1. Swafford was the solo leader after round 1 to cash Pat's 100/1 bet and he ended up going on to win, hitting DB's 150/1 outright. It was legendary on the golf Twittersphere.
Best Betting Memory Icon Best Betting Memory
We've had plenty. Betting golf is NOT for the faint of heart as it's easily the most variable sport on the planet. Like playing golf (unless you're Tiger Woods), you're going to lose a lot more than you win. We've had so many close calls, losses in a playoff, leaders choking on the back nine on Sunday that we've just had to erase them from our memory.
