It’s back to a favourite topic of the Good Good team this week as we welcome Bunkered magazine’s Michael McEwan back to the pod to talk about the R&A’s innovative GolfIt facility in Glasgow.
Podcasting brought them together and now the Good Good Golf Podcast is the result. Hosts Derek Duncan, Adrian Logue and Rod Morri are all avid podcast producers and listeners and after admiring each other’s work from a distance for months they finally connected on an episode of the now defunct iSeekGolf Book Club. The loss of that show, however, cleared the way for the birth of Good-Good, a corner of the internet where golf nerds can shamelessly congregate to discuss everything from the nuances of a redan par-3 to whether local government has a responsibility to promote golf. Welcome to the golf podcast world’s most eclectic show!
A special week in golf demands special treatment and that’s what episode 154 delivers. The regular team shifts to the back seat as special guest host Karen Harding and special guest co-host Emma Ballard take the controls to discuss the AIG Women’s Open. The Course, the field, purses and the state of the game are all part of the discussion as the golf world gears up for what is shaping as a thrilling week.
There’s no shortage of attacks on public golf but how we respond to those, as players and an industry, sets the tone for how successful we will be in protecting the game. Inspired by a column written by co-host Jimmy Emanuel we explore that issue on Ep 153 with the always interesting Sandy Jamieson.
Its the fourth of five women’s majors of the year and Women and Golf Editor Emma Ballard is along to talk Evian Championship, Armco Series and some of the bigger issues around golf.
It’s always a treat when Mike Clayton joins the pod and that was the case again for episode 151. While The Open will be the focus of most this week it will be, for hundreds or perhaps even thousands of golfers from around the world, merely the focal point of a pilgrimage that could change how they see and feel about the game. Golf in the UK gets so much right from courses to culture and everything in between and we touch on much of it in episode 151.
It’s been too long since we had Mike Clayton on the pod so we tracked him down to Fort Worth Texas and got him on the digital line for a chat about all things golf.
Busy doesn’t begin to describe this time of year for golf with the best women players in the game ready to tackle one of America’ finest courses this week at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. Baltusrol already has a storied history and it will only be enhanced this week when a champion is crowned in the second women’s major of 2023.
It’s US Open week on one of the more intriguing golf courses in recent memory. We go straight to California to catch up with TV Commentator Ned Michaels who will be doing featured group coverage for NBC all week.
