    Ep 32: Spirit of St Andrews Revisited

    Episode 32…the one that got away. We recorded a fabulous chat with former Touring Professional Ewan Porter this week and covered everything from the demons within that drive golfers to distraction to innovative formats and the future of the professional game in Australia. Sadly, nobody will get to hear that because of what we are referring to as a technical glitch (also known as oops….lost the recording!) We will have Ewan back in the next week or two but in the meantime we’ve delved into the archives to re-post one of our most popular episodes ever, The Book Club breakdown of Spirit of St Andrews with Mike Clayton. If you’ve never heard it you must and if you have heard it you must listen again. Enjoy.

    Ep 31: Weaning Golf Off Plastic

    Ep 31: Weaning Golf Off Plastic

    Many outside the game see golf as - at best - a negative for the environment and there is no doubt the game has some significant questions to answer about issues such as water and chemical use. But there is another - mostly hidden - way that golf is less than environmentally friendly and it comes in the form of the humble golf tee. The predominantly plastic or hardwood device millions of golfers use to begin almost every hole they play is actually a needlessly damaging piece of equipment and this week's Good Good guest is doing something about it. Ed Sandison formed his company Ocean Tee Golf in 2018 with the aim of reducing the use of plastic tees and instead replacing them with a bamboo version. Having had some success, the company has now begun manufacturing apparel with plans to expand even further.

    Ep 029: Canada's Answer To Mike Clayton

    Ian Andrew is a gentler version of our own Mike Clayton, a passionate course architect whose perspective and interest in the game is infinitely broader than his own place in it. Andrew joined Episode 29 to talk about his new book on famed Canadian architect Stanley Thompson plus a myriad of other topics including, but not limited to, the purpose of bunkers, the emerging moral issue of water and golf and why the future might be better for those who think width and angles are the key to more interesting golf.

    Ep 028: Where Golf And Art Intersect With Lee Wybranski

    Sick of Covid 19? Us too. So we're not mentioning it this week. Instead, we're delving into the world of golf and art when we catch up with renowned golf artist Lee Wybranski. Lee has produced the posters for every US Open since 2008 and has painted as well as work for The Open Championship, PGA and Ryder Cup. He has also been commissioned to paint just about every significant club and course in North East America as well as many Scotland, too. Lee's passion for course architecture shines through in this engaging discussion on the world where golf and art meet.

Stray Gator ,

Good goodish

Somewhat patchy sound quality but often good content. Too much talk by the host: not enough by the interviewees.
