Host Michael Collins, the longtime caddie, comedian and ESPN golf analyst, welcomes two special guests and takes a look back at a golf legend:

  • Collins celebrates the impact and legacy of the late, great Charlie Sifford, the first African-American golfer to win a tournament as a member of the PGA TOUR. Sifford won the Greater Hartford Open in 1967 and the Los Angeles Open in 1969.
  • Collins goes rumblin’, bumblin’ and stumblin’ to the famed Umbrella Shot Challenge with Hall of Fame ESPN Sportscaster Chris Berman, as the two reminisce about their first meeting at TPC River Highlands and Berman’s early involvement with the Travelers.
  • Collins challenges Richard “Rip” Hamilton to a one-club challenge, attempts a 3-hole match – masked – and talks all things golf and hoops in our ‘Quick 9’ with the Huskie legend who loves golf, won an NCAA title at UConn, and is a 3-time NBA All-Star and NBA Champion.
