(WSAV) – With Connor DelPrete on vacation, Andrew Goldstein solo hosts and reacts to the news of Gov. Brian Kemp signing a college athlete name/image/likeness bill into law. The bill would allow athletes in Georgia to make money from endorsements for the first time, but it isn’t everything it appears to be.

Then, LowCoSports golf reporter Brian Rietveld joins the podcast to talk about the Congaree Club, former Club Car champion Sam Burns’ performance on the PGA Tour, and some young Lowcountry golfers to keep an eye on.
