But he hopes to make a much broader impact over time, as you'll hear.

    November 18th, 2019  |  1 hr 14 mins

    If people like things about golf that are different to you, does that mean they are doing it wrong? Why does golf need to invite communities into their space?

    November 13th, 2019  |  1 hr 5 mins

It's Clayton at his best on Episode Eight of The Good Good Golf Podcast where Sydney v Melbourne golf, the Christina Kim rules fiasco and why Cypress Point's 16th hole needs an alternate par-4 tee are among the topics dissected. Clayton joins regulars Rod Morri, Adrian Logue and Derek Duncan for a fascinating and in depth discussion about golf and the fields upon which it is played.

Now a commentator at Golf Channel Blackmar, like many of his contemporaries, worries about the direction the game has taken at the top level but believes he has a solution that is as intriguing as it is unique. He chats with Rod Morri on Episode 7 about all things golf (including an extremely entertaining Jack Nicklaus story!)
