    Golfing While Black

    Golfing While Black

    Five women joined a golf club outside of York, Pennsylvania, only to have the police summoned to the course by the owner midway through their first round. Their crime, they say, was “golfing while black.” The first episode of Local Knowledge, a new podcast by Golf Digest, tells the story of the Grandview Five, a group of African-American women whose inaugural round at their new club became a reminder of an area—and a game’s—uneven history with race.

Agree Bernie is not a Democrat and guaranteed to give Trump a win. Please don’t call NH a low tax state. Property taxes are brutal.

Golf Digest no longer has a golf pod

I used to listen to the Golf Digest podcast because it was fun people talking about the news/action of golf, and it also had really good interviews with knowledgeable people about the things happening in the golf world. This is no longer that, which is fine, but this should’ve been a new feed that people could’ve chosen to listen to if they wanted. It’s sad that if you don’t gamble, Golf Digest no longer has a pod for you that talks about golf that is actually being played.

If I want social issues, I’ll tune to CNN

I really use to enjoy the podcast. I heard about the “new” format in the last Pod and was intrigued. Of course, you do the PC thing with the first Pod on the new format. Holy crap, everyone wants to preach. Politicians, government agencies, media, social media, actors and athletes to name a few want to preach to me and thought police me. Now you. I’m going to do the same with you that I do all the rest. Turn you off!
