Used to be much better but now they just try and stretch it out as long as possible with mindless banter just so that they can do more ad reads. The actual golf content is buried in the middle and it feels like too much of a chore these days to make it worthwhile
Congratulations on 300!
I’ve listened to all 300 and still a fan of the pod. It’s been fun catching up and look forward to hearing/seeing what y’all are going to do.

Keep it going guys
Keep on living/casting our best life. Not sure why, but best pod for running.
Stop talking hockey
Please PLEASE stop talking hockey.

Listen to No Laying Up
If you want a podcast about golf, listen to No Laying Up. If you wanna hear a guy name Frankie try to get you to like him, this is for you.
Strut N Crow
Riggs just uses his platform to promote ads for overpriced products and gain access to private clubs/pro events. Frankie is so insecure it’s painful. Trent should stick to tmz teenager nonsense. I can’t wait until someone takes their access away because it’s clear this podcast/barstool is for personal gain and not the listeners
Don’t ever put Frankie on a leash the guy is hilarious give us more ranting self deprecating humor. Everyone else is awesome as well. Great podcast
Frankie should be put on a leash
Frankie talk less
Lite on Golf, Strong on Vulgarity
If you want hot takes on todays players, and swearing every five words this podcast is for you. The hosts are passionate about golf, but the show is largely just a series of hot takes.
Unless Frankie gets a 30 second take a show.
Good not great
Personalities are VERY entertaining! Love the content outside of this podcast. If you want entertainment listen in, if you want entertainment AND golf information listen to the “NoLayingUp” podcast.
Make everything about themselves and I don’t think they really know golf that well. Go listen to no laying up instead
Frankies gotta go
I used to love this podcast, especially with the addition of Lurch(I think he’s great) but Frankie has just become unbearable. He makes every conversation about him and is constantly off topic. On top of that, this isn’t a very informing “golf” pod. NoLayingUp is much, much better
Entertaining every episode great way to ride home from work with a little humor and golf talk. It is NOT a hockey podcast.
Annoying group. Always off topic and self involved.
Would be good, but Frankie is on the podcast
Pretty good podcast and it could be really good with the exclusion of Frankie. I don’t get this guy, do people/other listeners like him? Behaves overly childish for a guy in his last 20’s. Some how finds a way to make whatever topic they are discussing about himself. Finally, the real reason I wrote the review. Last podcast with Sophia Popov was weird. Frankie was arguing with lurch about a video game and Frankie actually sounded heated. If you can’t behave like an adult and not make things awkward, please remove yourself from the podcast. He also screams into the mic while watching hockey during the middle of the podcast. Beyond annoying and unprofessional. Learn how to separate your personal life with your professional life, you’re almost 30 dude!
Most Entertaining podcast
Who doesn’t like talking/listening about all things golf
They aren’t funny and don’t know golf
Just go listen to No Laying Up
It’s like sitting around, shooting the sh*, and talking golf with your buddies after playing 18 and drinking a transfusion on the club house balcony.
This show is boring.
It’s a hockey podcast
Read title above, long time listener
There are much better golf podcasts
Foreplay is a golf podcast for the unenlightened golf fan. I originally started listening to it because I loved PMT, Mickstape, and Barstool in general. However, as my infatuation with golf has grown, my frustration with this podcast has as well. All three hosts (lurch still doesn’t count in my book) bring very little actual value as to golf IQ to the table. Frankie is insufferable and is equatable to the kid in high school who thinks he’s a lot cooler than he is, Riggs is not much better, and Trent is the sole saving grace. Their commentary on golf pales in comparison to their self-aggrandizing ten fold. If you want an actual golf podcast try Shotgun Start, Get a Grip, or No Laying Up/Trap Draw. They’re better than Erik Anders Lang’s podcast at least, so there’s that
Stopped listening after a few months
It’s an ok podcast. I stopped because I couldn’t stand Frankie anymore. Most of the shows were great but, they can go off the rails pretty quickly.
Start a kitty for Frankie dropping the F bomb after every word like a 12 year old trying to be cool.
frankie f bombs
Sound quality is terrible
Cuts in and out. Not using professional mic’s.
Please get new hosts
Frankie and Riggs are among the most annoying people I have ever heard on a podcast. Frankie is that friend who thinks he’s a stud at golf but should realistically be playing from the lady tees. Please replace these two
Trent’s still cool
Gave two stars, both for Trent. He’s about the only one that hasn’t taken a turn for the worse over the years, the others (esp. riggs) think they’re God’s gift to golf. Used to be a great show, now it’s just incessant tiger fandom and ad reads.
Entertaining & Relatable
Started listening to Foreplay a few months ago. Great podcast that doesn’t have the pretentious and know it all attitude like NLU
Not golf coverage
If you’re looking for insight into upcoming tournaments, how different players are looking, etc. Don’t waste your time
Great podcast. I love it.
Not as good as it used to be.
Was much better a couple years ago. Now it’s too much about their golf games. About every third or forth show is good. Usually when they get a good interview. I really don’t care about your bad wedge game.
More Lurch is more better
Quit trying to squeeze out the big man!
The podcast is much better than their handicaps.
Best group of guys
These guys are actually for the avg golfer. These guys are really growin the game.
Riggs got body bagged by Kirk
Rumor has it that Riggs is still crying. Sad.
Not very good
These guys have no clue what they are talking about. Worst golf podcast out there
should be called foreskin
No shtick between the three of them. Access to numerous players and coverage being under barstool sports but a complete flop. Listen to no playing up
Not up in here
You know what your guys problem is...you go about in pity for yourselves
Golf Coverage? Nah
This is the only sport actively being played and there is little to no coverage...

I used to listen to a different golf podcast that will go unnamed until I found Foreplay. The other one was boring and nobody seemed to have much of a personality. They were also against no laying up for some reason even though their personalities would say the contrary. Then I found this one. It's a podcast anybody can listen to, from the lay golfer to the pro, you will be entertained.
Review show host membership
Trent, you’re bad a golf not that funny and beat every joke to death. I love watching the the Fore Play YouTube, until your ugly mug appears. You seem like the guest at a party that jumps in in the middle of a story and asks “what are you guys talking about?” Until they finally start the story over. The rest of the Pod is great. Love the content and the YouTube is well done.
Hands down the best gold podcast out there. Taking golf in the right direction and reaching a new audience.
Common man golf!
Love the Podcast.
Love you guys. Started listening a couple months ago, at the start of COVID and haven’t been disappointed at all. Can listen to you guys playing golf, working around the house, and at work. Looking forward to the next Barstool Classic!
Love these guys!!
Fun stuff! Love listening to these hackers (sorry) !! Good mix for golf fans!!
Love the Pod
Love the pod, been listening since it was just Riggs and Trent. Love the addition of Frankie (even though he’s been on for a while). Lurch is eh, tries a little too hard but love when him and Frankie go back and forth, always comical. Love the content they have been putting out on the Pod, YouTube and socials, makes me wish I was apart of the squad 😂 good work fellas
Long Time Fan, but Switched to NLU
Was a listener back when it was Trent and Riggs. Back then, I couldn’t get enough of the pod. Loved it. It has devolved into them talking about themselves their own games, rather than the tour and golf in general. Again, used to love this pod but it got old a few weeks ago and I just can’t listen anymore. Lurch adds no value and everything he says feels forced. Really miss the old podcast. Now, I prefer going back to the early days and listening to From the Galleries as opposed to listening to new episodes. Switched to No Laying Up, they stick to the golf provide thoughtful, funny takes.
For the common man
Great podcast! Makes golf relatable for the common man and they are a great group of guys to listen to. Ads can be annoying but that’s why there’s a skip button. Quarantine put a hit on content for them to cover but the travel series was a great addition. Love the golf, love the guys, and can’t wait till they get tiger on the pod.
