Episodes

  • Ep 50: Whinged Foot - The Fallout

    September 21st, 2020  |  1 hr 5 mins

    Thee's been no shortage of whining and whinging about the US Open at Winged Foot and you'll find plenty more of it here though hopefully with a somewhat different angle. Enjoy.

  • Ep 49: Winged Foot and The Wall

    September 16th, 2020  |  1 hr 33 secs

    We try not to talk a bout the same stuff as everybody else on Good Good but every now and then there is no getting around it. Hopefully we at least bring some fresh perspectives to the discussion about the wall controversy at the ANA as well as what's ahead at the US Open.

  • Ep 048: Logue's Back And So Is Huggy

    September 9th, 2020  |  1 hr 20 mins

    John Huggan joins Episode 48 to break down everything that is wrong with the Tour Championship (and the rest of the PGA Tour), the parlous state of the European Tour and what the future may hold, Sophia Popov not being in the ANA and plenty more as well.

  • Ep 047: Golf And The Environment with Harley Kruse and Kate Torgersen

    September 2nd, 2020  |  53 mins 36 secs

    No Logue this week and while we miss him there is no shortage of good content as Harley Kruse steps into the co-hosting role and we welcome golf environmental specialist Kate Torgersen to the show. Kate advises clubs on returning as many indigenous species to their property as possible (among a bunch of other stuff).

  • Ep 046: On The Tee With Dr P

    August 25th, 2020  |  1 hr 7 mins

    On episode 46 we get into a bit of good old fashioned network cross promotion when we welcome On the Tee With Dr P host Dr Kelly Price back to the show. Dr P is an academic with a particular interest in women's golf as well as the psychology of consumers in the retail space. If you're looking for a way to cure your slice or stop three putting this won't be the show for you but if you enjoy intelligent conversation about big picture topics then you've come to the right place.

  • Ep 45: So You Want To Be In Golf Media?

    August 18th, 2020  |  1 hr 9 mins

    One of our favourite recurring topics on Good Good is the changing nature of media and its relationship with the game. On Episode 45 we welcome co-founder of one of the new breed of media publications – Will Watt of Caddie magazine – to discuss what it’s like to launch a magazine from scratch, the role of the golf media in promoting the game’s image beyond the word’s fairways and some chat about his newly released book as well.

  • Ep 044: An Intriguing Idea For Public Golf

    August 10th, 2020  |  56 mins 46 secs

    Back in the late 2000's there was a bold and intriguing idea floated at the PGA of Australia to promote and encourage public golf. The plan was to build several template facilities on vacant council land across the nation to be run by PGA members and get new and exsting golfers playing more golf. For all sorts of reasons the idea never got off the ground but could the concept still be relevant today? On Episode 44 we meet one of the architects of the scheme to talk about that plus plenty more.

  • Ep 43: Lockdown, Majors and Lydia Ko with Mike Clayton

    August 7th, 2020  |  1 hr 12 mins

    With the strangest major championship in living memory getting underway this week and Mike Clayton stuck at home in Victoria thanks to Corona Virus it seemed like a perfect opportunity to get the analyst, architect and commentator on the pod. So we did. Enjoy

  • Ep 42: Golf And The Big Picture With Harley Kruse

    July 29th, 2020  |  1 hr 20 mins

    Sydney based architect Harley Kruse is a thoughtful and knowledgeable type who has had access to some of the best minds in golf and golf course architecture for the best part of three decades. On Episode 42 he talks trees, golf as green space, the importance of regional and suburban golf and how we can make it better and so much more as well.

  • Ep 41: Does Golf Really Have Nine Virtues?

    July 22nd, 2020  |  1 hr 1 min

    Jay Revell is one of the most interesting voices in golf today and he joins episode 41 to talk his new book, why some of us get so hooked on the game and whether the future is bright despite the constant bad news that has been 2020.

  • Ep 40: Time For Blokes To Listen

    July 14th, 2020  |  1 hr 1 min

    There was quite the response last week when Good Good co-host Adrian Logue retweeted a story from Golf Business UK magazine featuring 30 year golfer Kerry Cooper and her horror story of joining an English golf club. In light of the reaction, it seemed the only sensible thing to do was invite her other podcast to tell her story. So we did.

  • Ep 39: The Match: The Day Golf Podcasts Changed Forever

    July 8th, 2020  |  1 hr 24 mins

    Some salty language, some piling on Hogan and a whole lot of terrific and entertaining analysis. Yes the Book Club is back with host Derek Duncan joining Adrian Logue and reigning US Mid Amateur champion Lukas Michel to dissect The Match by Mark Frost - one of golf's most legendary stories.

  • Ep 38: Meg MacLaren Makes Her Good-Good Debut

    June 30th, 2020  |  1 hr 7 mins

    It's hard to believe this is Meg MacLaren's first appearance on the Good-Good podcast but it's a worthy debut. The recent winner on the newly formed Rose Ladies Series talks the LET/LPGA joint venture, her recent foray into TV writing, her addiction to golf and, of course, that victory last week.

  • Ep 37: Finally, Ewan Porter

    June 23rd, 2020  |  59 mins 40 secs

    It was a disaster when we asked Ewan Porter to come on the show last month and the recording 'somehow' got lost. But let's not dwell on the past, that water is under the bridge and on Episode 37 we catch up with the player turned commentator for some fascinating insights into the game.

  • Ep36: Unsung Heroes - Vern Morcom

    June 17th, 2020  |  52 mins 6 secs

    Many Australians with an interest in course architecture will be familiar with the name 'Morcom' but so often we when we hear the name we think mostly of Mick Morcom, who is credited with implementing Mackenzie's plans at Royal Melbourne. But while Mick's son Vern is hardly an unknown quantity, his influence on the game in Australia - and particularly regional Victoria - has never been properly documented. Until now. Author Toby Cumming joins the podcast this week to talk about his upcoming book on the life and work of Vern Morcom.

  • Ep 35: Golf and the Government With Golf Australia's Fiona Telford

    June 10th, 2020  |  54 mins 50 secs

    With public golf and its continued existence at the forefront of recent conversations, now seemed like a good time to meet Golf Australia's Government Relations Manager Fiona Telford. Fiona discusses the strategic aims of the organisation and its dealings with governments at Federal, State and - perhaps most importantly - local level.
