Shane is great

The Mystery of Montague is a must listen. Amazing story and even better storytelling.

Playing Pro ,

Storytelling at its finest

Shane Ryan is a brilliant storyteller!! One of the best in the business. A true joy to listen to … He takes you on a journey that is intriguing, vivid, with a voice made for “radio” … A must listen, for golf and non-golf fans alike … 5+ stars 👍
