Always something new in golf history

Connor Lewis brings interesting stories and people to the podcast, revealing so much more than the standard fare found in traditional golf magazines. Each podcast is well researched and well done!

Nashville Tom ,

Brilliant!

Love this podcast. Love this episode as much as any. A brilliant interview of a brilliant person about a brilliant game!

Bodestiny ,

Great except for the SJW nonsense

I love this show. I would be perfect but for the SJW nonsense the show sometimes feels compelled to include. I have to turn it off when that happens. Case in point the rise and fall of golf in America podcast. You know what I’m saying.
