The 142nd episode of the Press Row Podcast is a two parter. Up first, producer Ryan Ferwerda joins host Rich Grisham to describe the process of building Rory McIlroy PGA Tour Golf from the ground up, including how courses are constructed, the approach to mechanics, prioritization of features, online play, and why EA Sports isn’t able to currently discuss the game’s future content roadmap. After that, Rich and Bryan Wiedey get together to talk about their initial impressions of PGA Tour golf, how it compares to The Golf Club, and what they feel EA needs to do to support the game moving forward.

The 141st episode of the Press Row Podcast is a discussion between Owen Good, Samit Sarkar, and Rich Grisham all about the upcoming Rory McIlroy PGA Tour title. Does the limited number of courses and golfers – compared to previous versions – significantly hurt its chances at success? What is the approach that EA is taking with the game, now that it’s evidently not an annual release? Will PGA Tour evolve into a “golf as a service” model? How will it compare with The Golf Club? These and a number of other topics about PGA Tour are debated. Enjoy!

The 140th episode of the Press Row Podcast features a breezy, free-wheeling discussion with regulars Kat Bailey, Bryan Wiedey, and Rich Grisham on a whole range of topics. The panel remembers with fondness when July meant NCAA Football, discusses how online leagues impacted how they continued to play games longer than they had before, looks ahead to the upcoming Rocket League title hitting PlayStation 4 (for free!) next week, wonders if arcade sports games could make a comeback, and wraps with Kat and Rich getting into a rather heated argument about FIFA's shooting mechanics on console versus the Vita. Lastly, Bryan and Rich talk about the positive reaction to their new Hit The Pass site and what it has meant to them.

Enjoy the show, and Happy Fourth of July!
