Hardly a dull week in the world of golf so, unusually for us, we’ve turned our attention to the pay for play ranks with special guest John Huggan joining form London as he prepares to cover the first LIV Golf event at the Centurion Club.
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!
There was movement at Darebin City Council last week regarding the ongoing use of Northcote golf course and Northcote Community and Golf Hub spokesman Bill Jennings returns to fill in the details of what unfolded.
Does golf do enough to be inclusive (and what does that even mean)? And if the answer is no, is that a dumb business decision as much as anything else? What are the up sides of diversity and how do people within the game go about making it happen? Lots and lots of questions and some fascinating and intelligent answers when Dr Hannah Brown joins the Good Good golf podcast.
We almost never do anything instruction related in this pod but for one of Australia’s best players and nicest guys we made an exception as we welcome Nick O’Hern to talk about his new book Play Your Best Golf. Worth a listen and re-listen, this interview and the book are both filled with nuggets that are all but guaranteed to help your game.
It’s not hard to find a golf podcast in 2022 but it can be hard to find one that is both different and good. In February this year the Firm and Fast podcast launched and has proved to be both of those things. On this week’s episode we meet founder and host, Ireland’s Shane Derby, to find out what he’s up to.
Nicole Wheatley has been in the golf industry for more than 20 years and has some fascinating thoughts on what the game gets wrong – and right – about its marketing.
Author Stephen Proctor joins episode 104 to talk his upcoming book ‘The Long Golden Afternoon’ about one of the most pivotal periods in the games history, 1864-1914. If Stephen’s last book – Monarch Of The Green – is anything to go by this will be a brilliant, insightful and entertaining read.
In polite society it’s religion and politics but in the golf world if you want to start an argument bring up golf course rankings. On Ep 103 Golf Australia Magazine editor Brendan James comes into the studio to talk about the magazine’s latest top 100 list, how courses are judged and some of the myths around the ranking system. Co host Adrian Logue also has a special announcement about an upcoming trip to Barnbougle Dunes.
Earlier this year a new talent emerged in the small corner of Golf Twitter that The Good-Good podcast inhabits in the form of the Stymied blog. Author Richard Pennell was a complete unknown to most of us but his writing has struck a chord with many so we decided to get him on the show and have him explain himself.
