In episode 13, Steve Williams takes Evin Priest through the 2008 US Open - the last major Tiger Woods won with Williams on the bag. Williams provides never-before-heard details about Woods' epic triumph at Torrey Pines, his 14th major.

Esteemed golf writer Bob Harig joins Evin Priest in a bonus episode of Chasing Majors to discuss a career reporting on the PGA Tour and his new book, Tiger & Phil: Golf's Most Fascinating Rivalry. Harig developed a close player-reporter relationship with Woods over 20 years that very few others have managed. Harig shares an incredible anecdote of Arnold Palmer having a few drinks and hilariously blasting Tiger Woods for laying up on the final hole of his 2013 Bay Hill victory.

The year 2002 began strangely for Tiger Woods, with a terrorist threat made against him and others at the 2002 New Zealand Open, which Woods played as a gesture to former caddie Steve Williams. The event ran smoothly, though, and three months later Woods was victorious at a 'Tiger-proofed' Augusta National. Williams also takes listeners through the changes to Augusta and how it affected the way he caddied for Woods during his 2002 Masters win.
