The podcast network for serious golfers. TalkinGolf launched as an online audio show way back before podcasts (or even the iPhone) were a thing. We've been on an extended break since 2012 but now we're back and creating new and interesting content each week as well as a sprinkling of some of the best stuff from the archives.
TGH 65: The Blonde Bomber: Craig Wood
Episode #65 is an episode of Warren Rogan's "Sports Forgotten Heroes." Warren, myself and George Petro discuss the life and career of Craig Wood, who prior to winning the first two majors of 1941 was best known for being the Grand Slam Runner-Up Champion.
A special thanks to Warren Rogan for allowing me to co-release this podcast with Sports Forgotten Heroes. If you love sports and love history, do yourself a favor and make Sports Forgotten Heroes a favorite in your podcast play list.
TGH 64: Antiquities of the Game, Young Tom's Putter
TalkinGolf History is proud to announce a new series, "Antiquities of the Game," where we explore relics from golf's past and use them to tell the history of the game of golf. This episode includes Jock Hutchinson's 1921 Open Championship Gold Medal and YOUNG TOM MORRIS' PUTTER that he used to win 4 Open Championships in a row. This pivotal moment changed the course of golf history, gave birth to the first ever Gold Medal, the Claret Jug and the Open Rota.
I am joined on the show by Golf Historian and author of "Monarch of the Green: Young Tom Morris: Pioneer of Modern Golf," the fabulous Stephen Proctor.
TGH 63: The Gathering
TalkinGolf History proudly presents "The Gathering"
A golf summit at the Home of America Golf, which brought together the minds behind Golf Club Atlas, the Donald Ross Society, Kyle Franz Golf Design, Story Lounge Film Company and the Society of Golf Historians.

TGH 62: The Life & Times of Ben Wright
Episode #61 is the 4th installment of my sitdown interview with Masters Announcer, Ben Wright. In the previous installments Mr. Wright shared some amazing stories with us including- his friendship with Ben Hogan, how he helped put the Beatles on tv for the first time, when Jack Nicklaus shed a tear from a fellow player, how Ben felt that he had jinxed a player at the Masters, how he punched out another player and many many stories that have never previously been shared.
On this installment Ben shares a few more stories and adds a bit of color to the stories he has shared before.
It was an absolute pleasure to sit down with broadcasting legend, Ben Wright - I sincerely hope you have enjoyed our time together.
TGH 61: Ben Wright & the Beatles???
Episode #61 kicks off #MastersMarch for the TalkinGolf History Podcast. Five podcasts in 5 weeks, in our countdown to the 2021 Masters with stories you won't hear anywhere else.
What better way to kick off this series than with a story that has nothing to do with golf - or atleast the first 15 minutes of our show has nothing to do with golf. If you are a Beatles Fan listen in for this unknown backstory of how the Beatles made their first tv appearance ever! I hope you Beatles fanatics listen past the first 15 minutes, but if not, you can skip to my outgoing message and a little more color to the story.
For the golf fans there is plenty of meat for you as well including how Ben Wright may have cost a friend a major championship, CBS's illegal calcutta and Ben's favorite moments from the Masters.
TGH 60: The Wonderful Herbert Warren Wind
On this episode of the TalkinGolf History Podcast we dive into the profound history of Herbert Warren Wind. Few sports writers in history hold a candle to the great Herbert Warren WInd, and we golfers should cherish the fact that he was on our side.
If you think you know a lot about the man that the USGA named its highest honor in literature after, think again - his contributions to the game will echo in golf's history.
Our guests for today's show are Bradley Klein and Stephen Proctor.

History but not as we know it
Golf + History = Damn Good Listening. Who would've thunk it? Great work, you blokes!
A must listen
When you thought there wasn’t a missing spot in golf podcasts but Rod and Connor have found something that not only has found its place and based off the first episode could be close to number 1
