The PostCast is back for 2018, and our first topic of conversation is an old debate that continues to resurface: Do professional golfers hit the ball too far? Do governing bodies need to limit distance to preserve layouts? Or do courses need to get longer to accommodate the powerful athletes dominating the game?

Also included in this episode are discussions about Dustin Johnson’s Hall of Fame chances, the stunning beauty of Kapalua and predictions for this week’s Sony Open.
