Women and Golf Editor Emma Ballard is on site for the week and joins the pod to set the scene for what promises to be a great event.

    Ep 111: Linn Grant and LIV Golf

    In the big picture, the most important thing to happen in golf last week was Linn Grant winning the Scandinavian Mixed event. We at least talked about that a bit before getting completely derailed - like everybody else - by LIV Golf and the turmoil at the top of the men's professional game.

Better than Good Good…Brilliant!

Rod and Adrian are a joy and delight to listen to while working in the garden or a project! Bringing humor and insight to all topics golf. Introduced me to Sandy Jamieson (1Club) who introduced my wife to golf and now we are a golfing couple. Thanks guys!

Nice podcast

Really good podcast. Not sure why you think Inverness is too short for the men. At 7800 yards how many major sites are longer? Not many

Great and Unique Perspectives in Golf

I found the Good Good pod through other TalkinGolf pods and it has quickly become one of my favorite pods. Rod, Adrian, and Derek really draw you in their conversation and make you feel like a fly on the wall. Keep them coming!!
