In the 25 years of covering golf, the development of the game, courses and the camaraderie that’s core to the culture, it was time for Matt to share some of the best stories he has heard around fire pits all over the world. From PGA Tour players, caddies, architects, avid amateurs and buddies-trip planners, Matt has forged relationships with some of the most colorful and influential people in the game. So grab a drink, a seat and settle in. We’re getting to the essence of one story per podcast. A narrative so deep and meaningful, you save it for a post-round fire pit, which is where no one is in a hurry for the night to end.

Happy listening

The fire pit might be my favourite podcast. It immolates everything that golf should be about, growing the game, having fun, and meeting new friends.

Love the fire pit

I am a big Kisner fan and am starting to gain a real appreciation for Riggs. Love Mr. Ginella’s passion for the game and varied guests.

Just finished part 2 of Riggs and the story telling is fantastic, kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. Looking forward to many more and love how golf can bring communities together!
