Every year, the golf world turns its attention to Dublin, Ohio, for the playing of the Memorial Tournament. This year is the 40th year of the Memorial playing. 

Steve Brown and Thomas Bradley talk to Rob Oller from the Columbus Dispatch about this years' tournament. 

History

Later, Thomas talks with Memorial Executive Director Dan Sullivan about the history of the tournament, the greats that have come through Dublin and the tournaments the golf course has hosted.

Autographs

Ever been to a practice day at a golf tournament, and seen hundreds of children running around with flags, balls, hats; all trying to get them signed. Well. We have. And we talked to a few of them about their best strategies for getting the best autograph.

Cavs

The Cavaliers dropped Game 1 on Thursday night, and await a Game 2 in Oakland Sunday night. What are the keys for the Cleveland Cavaliers to see success on the road against the Warriors? Will the injuries affect the series going forward? We talk with Zack Meisel of the Cleveland Plain Dealer about the series.

Steve Brown grew up in nearby Richwood, Ohio and now lives there with his wife and sons. He started his journalism career as a weekend board operator at WOSU while majoring in journalism at Ohio State, where he also wrote for the student newspaper The Lantern and co-founded the organization Students for Public Broadcasting.
