We talked about his amateur career and his development as a golfer , his dad, and his move into the pro game.  He spoke about the importance of environment and the people you surround yourself,  and about finding his game, losing it and finding it again. It's a brilliant insight into the mind of a world-class golfer.

Just needs a tweak for 5 stars

The guys get excellent guests which makes for potentially fascinating shows. However as other reviews point out it’s a bit Heath Robinson in terms of research / preparation, at least where LD is concerned, which is any easy fix. More key for the listener is abbreviating the rambling questioning style of LD which often finishes with him answering himself. He has a tendency to cut across guests mid flow too, which is a shame as most seem happy to speak freely when able (see Padraig, Chubby C as examples). JH has a depth of knowledge and perhaps could be more of a lead on the questioning? In essence more space for guests to talk to topics would be great.

Exactly what a podcast is supposed to be

Really enjoyable listen. Exactly what a podcast should be. No messing around. No inane stupidity. Just intelligent chat with guys who know what they’re talking about. Maybe deduct half a point for sometimes creaky phone lines but generally perfectly fine.

Wonderful golf podcast

Long interviews with some of the most interesting people in golf. Gets well behind the superficial and cliched with great stories, frank opinions and interesting perspectives.
