In this Valentine’s Day-themed episode of the PostCast, Sean Fairholm and Cassie Stein discuss the best and worst possible combos of male and female tour professionals, what makes us fall in love with the game and more.

The co-hosts are joined by LPGA Tour insider Steve Eubanks, who explains what he wanted to share by providing a behind-the-scenes look at Lexi Thompson in this week’s edition of Global Golf Post

“I’m not sure the person who just periodically tunes in to women’s golf has any idea what kind of person Lexi is,” Eubanks said. “This is a tremendous young woman for one simple reason: She’s been in the spotlight since she was 12 years old, and for most kids that has deleterious effect on not just their professional career but on their lives … but for Lexi, she is a perfectly well adjusted, funny, kind adult.”

Eubanks also discusses the relationship of Lydia Ko and Ariya Jutanugarn, the top two players in the women’s game. After Ko announced she is working with instructor Gary Gilchrist, the two now share the same coach. 

Sean and Cassie also delve into moments that made them realize how much they love the game of golf, the schedule for this upcoming week and their picks for the Genesis Open at Riviera.
