Is this a diet, fitness, yoga, marriage, or golf podcast? No, it’s all of them. Mike and Eli have somehow consolidated everything you’d ever want to read or listen to, saving you time and frustration. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll get better at golf in the process. But probably not.

Great podcast! Listened to every episode. Wonderful diversion for any golfer, especially those trying to lower their handicaps. The guys are very funny and relatable.

Let's go Rick! This is one of the best podcasts out there. Especially if you have spent any time on the golf course. Even if you aren’t a golfer, listening to two friends trying to hit theirs goals is just a great listen. I can relate to these guys in so many ways! Awesome Podcast!!!



  • The Chasing Scratch podcast follows Mike and Eli, two friends in their early 40's with wives, kids, day jobs, and shaky 11 handicaps, as they try to reach the Holy Grail of golf: a scratch handicap. If you are looking for swing tips from PGA professionals, this is not the show for you. If you want to hear about two grown men abandoning diets, writing songs about their shanks, and quoting every movie made over the last 40 years, this is the place for you.

    Chasing Scratch is ranked in the top 10 golf podcasts in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, France, Sweden, Denmark, South Africa, and India.
