    TGH 120: A Historic Trip to Scotland

    TGH 120: A Historic Trip to Scotland

    The Society of Golf Historians is flying to Scotland in August of 2025 and we want you to join us!


    Today on the show we are joined by the President and Co-Founder of PerryGolf, Gordon Dalgleish, who shares the early history of PerryGolf and how it was one of the early pioneers in the golf travel industry.


    Gary and I then pivot to discuss The Society of Golf Historians Trip to Scotland with Gary providing some color into some of the Open's most famous venues.


    The trip will be unlike any other - PerryGolf is scheduling the golf, hotels and travel accomodations and I am scheduling the extracurriculars which include walking tours of St Andrews, a live recording of the TalkinGolf History Podcast and some things I dont want to share in the media (but will be amazing).

    TGH 119: The History of Calvin Peete

    TGH 119: The History of Calvin Peete

    When you think of the American Dream - that wonderful tale of a rags to riches story - few can beat the story of Calvin Peete. From climbing into trees in orchards, to shattering his elbow, to becoming a pool shark , then a golf hustler to a Vardon Trophy winner, and Players Champion on the PGA Tour - Calvin's story is a tale of the struggle to become someone in this world.


    This podcast was only made possible by Gordon Hobson and his wonderful book, Calvin Peete, Golf's Forgotten Star.

    TGH 118: The Gathering at Pinehurst

    TGH 118: The Gathering at Pinehurst

    As we close in on the 124th playing of the US Open at Pinehurst, I thought it would be a great time to rollback the podcast to a show we recorded during the pandemic.


    Recorded and filmed from Golf Club Atlas Headquarters in Pinehurst, NC, this podcast includes the Founder of Golf Club Atlas, Ran Morrisett, Kyle Frantz Golf Design, former President of the Donald Ross Society, Brad Becken, CEO of Story Lounge Film Company and current President of the Donald Ross Society and myself.


    A great podcast that celebrates Pinehurst and the genius of Donald Ross.

    TGH 117: Instruments of Change: Mosk & Sifford

    TGH 117: Instruments of Change: Mosk & Sifford

    We welcome author Peter May back to the podcast to discuss his latest book: "Changing the Course: How Charlie Sifford & Stanley Mosk Integrated the PGA."


    A wonderful expansion on the DocuPod I recorded years ago by the title: "The Caucasian Clause." Peter May's study of the events that took place between 1896 and 1962 was thorough and tells the story, while not a happy one, of the creation of the PGA, the PGA Tour and the PGA Championship we know today.

Must Listen

A very enjoyable, at times lighthearted, but always interesting look at the history of this great game. Compelling listening for the serious golfer.

Stray Gator ,

History but not as we know it

Golf + History = Damn Good Listening. Who would've thunk it? Great work, you blokes!

Duncan Booth ,

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
