Join Tom Coyne on his fortnightly forays into the golf’s uncovered corners and characters.
Episode 98: Sandra Boynton, Dancing Hippos, and the Birth of Bandon Dunes
Sandra Boynton has sold more than 70 million children’s books, 500 million greeting cards, and has been nominated for a Grammy. So what does she have to do with golf?
According to her first publisher, Mike Keiser, Boynton’s work financed the building of Bandon Dunes.
Fresh off her profile in TGJ No. 18, Boynton joins host Tom Coyne to discuss working for Keiser’s greeting card company after graduating from Yale, turning down his original offer in exchange for royalties, inspirations and much m
Episode 97: Dream On
If we eat, sleep and breathe golf, then we are bound to dream about it. From struggling to pull the club back to eating ice cream with Gary Woodland, golf dreams can manifest themselves in infinite ways. But no matter how wacky they get, a fundamental truth remains: Golf dreams reveal the deepest level of our golfing subconscious.
On Episode 97, we enlist dream analyst expert Lauri Loewenberg to decode some golf dreams submitted by TGJ Members.
Episode 96: Eastside Story
After winning a national championship at Morehouse College, Olajuwon Ajanaku set his sights on a professional golf career. Instead of seeking sponsorship, he went a different way: He created a logo of himself, slapped it on a Gildan, and started pushing it around downtown Detroit. Two years later, Eastside Golf is pushing the boundaries of what a golf brand can be, and recently became the first brand to collaborate with Jordan on a signature golf shoe.
Episode 95: The Three Lidos
Once upon a time there was a golf course called The Lido. Bernard Darwin called it “the finest golf course in the world.” And then? It disappeared.
And now, there are three.
On Ep. 95, Brett Cyrgalis, Gil Hanse and Brian Schneider take us on a journey to unravel how we lost such an important piece of golf history, and why we should be thankful that a group of true believers are putting it back together.
Episode 94: The Life and Times of Will Mackenzie
Will MacKenzie has lived in an Alaskan cave for 30 days, worked as a kayak instructor in Montana, sold grilled cheeses at Grateful Dead concerts and won twice on the PGA Tour. He’s now found his footing as a caddie for the likes of Chris Kirk, where he grapples with thoughts of making a comeback and the reality that fishing sounds a lot more enjoyable than hitting range balls. He joins Tom Coyne between rounds to unpack his wild ride of a life, and to pinpoint why it always seems to lead back to golf.
Episode 93: Mr. Top 100
Greg Ohlendorf knows the secret. He is one of two people to have ever played Golf Magazine’s World Top 100 Courses, Golfweek‘s Top 100 Modern and Top 100 Classic Courses, plus a course in all 50 states. The biggest lesson he’s learned? Checking courses off a list doesn’t get the blood flowing. True golf adventure does.
He joins host Tom Coyne to discuss the joys of finding new tracks, how on Earth he accomplished those lists and the flaws behind lists in this live recording from the Broken Tee So
