    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 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.

    August 7th, 2020  |  1 hr 12 mins
