Golf Digest Podcast: ESPN's Mike Greenberg gets to talk sports and play a LOT of golf

December 09, 2015

Before you resent Mike Greenberg for having one of the best jobs in the world -- he gets to sit around opining about sports alongside partner Mike Golic -- you should know it gets worse: Greenberg also plays golf pretty much every day in the summer.


In other words, there's a lot to not like about Greenberg, except for the fact that he's immensely likeable.

Once a 24 handicap, Greenberg, co-host of the popular "Mike & Mike in the Morning " on ESPN Radio, has since worked his way down to a 9, giving all the credit to his pro Dan Tzivanis at Rolling Hills Country Club in Wilton, Conn.

Greenberg also happens to be a loyal and passionate Golf Digest reader. He talks about the magazine often on the air, and a few years ago when he was home sick, his wife, Stacy, tweeted a picture of Greenberg taking comfort in the latest issue.


For the Golf Digest Podcast, we caught up with Mike to talk about his breakthrough as a player, how he gets to play so often, and why his side-gig as a novelist is still at the whims of his golf obsession.
