A British take on current affairs in the world of golf. Some of it interesting, most of it not.
093 - ‘The Open’ 2021 Roundup
Bruce gives us insight from the ground, Tom offers some love for Louis and Spieth, & Sam brings some conjecture. We couldn’t let the anticipated Open Championship go by without a quick recap pod. A great week, with lots of sub plots, gaffe’s and some incredibly strong golf around Royal St George’s. Hats off to Morikawa for a blistering final day performance and securing his place in the record books!
092 - Nick Poppleton
Nick joins us after his debut Open appearance having qualified up at West Lancs. Credited with quote of the week, and having played his practice round with Bryson & Phil - Nick certainly dominated the column inches over the weekend, and brings a refreshing attitude to the game which is great to hear.
091 - The Infamous Castle & the 149th Open Preview
Today the lads get together to review the Castle Course at St. Andrews, chat through the Scottish open and preview the upcoming 149th Open at Royal St. George’s.
090 - Paul Larsen - Hd Greenkeeper Royal St George’s
Paul Is the head greenkeeper at Royal St George’s and we’ve been excited about talking to him for a while. We cover the setback in 2020
With the cancellation of The Open, as well as what preparation for a major championship looks like through the lens of the greenkeepers. It’s really apparent the level of knowledge and care Paul brings to his job, talking about subjects we were WELL out of our depth in including ecology, rough management and grass regeneration! Hopefully this gets The Open vibes going a bit
089 - Sandy & Acidic Tour Diaries - Scotland 2021
We get together to recap the highs and lows of the latest Scotland Tour. Prestwick, North Berwick, Royal Aberdeen, Cruden Bay and Kingsbarns! What a trip, and what an itinerary. All courses in here feature very highly in the world rankings, but yet they are all so different, have their own different character and getting to see them all in such quick succession was a really cool insight!
088 - Laird Shepherd - Amateur Champion 2021
We got the catch up with Laird Shepherd after his Amateur Championship win at The Nairn. An unprecedented comeback from 7 down, with 14 holes to play in the final, and securing his spot in next months Open Championship at Royal St George's close to home at Rye, as well as the 2022 US Open & Masters. It's certainly one of the greatest comeback stories of all time!
