Everything this week is about the US Women’s Open at Pebble Beach and we go straight to the course with Australian bagman for IN Gee Chun, Dean Herden.
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!
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.
Next week marks International Women’s Golf Day and ambassador and Women and Golf magazine Editor Emma Ballard joins the pod to discuss that, Walton Heath and the upcoming AIG Women’s British Open plus the state of the golf business.
John Huggan joins the pod to discuss Brooks Kopek’s PGA win and as is the way in the New World Golf Order, the broader implications for the top end of the men’s game. From the Ryder Cup to an outburst from Koepka’s coach, nothing happens in isolation in men’s golf any more.
The most interesting tournament his week in world golf will be the Women’s International Crown at TPC Harding Park. Australia’s Sarah Kemp joins us for a behind the scenes look then Jimmy Emmanuel dials in from PNG.
