Ep 126: All Abilities in the Spotlight
December 1st, 2022 | 1 hr 10 mins
The men's and women's concurrent events will get the bulk of the attention but there will be some compelling golf played in the All Abilities Championship this week at Victoria Golf Club also. World Number 7 Kurtis Barkley joins the podcast to talk all this golf and disability including what he thinks will be an under par winning score at the AAC this week.
Ep 125: All The Presidents Women
November 28th, 2022 | 1 hr 1 min
There is plenty of history surrounding this year's concurrent Australian Opens, not the least being both host clubs - Kingston Heath and Victoria - have (or in Victoria's case recently had) women Presidents. On today's episode we welcome Nikki McClure (Kingston Heath) and Sue Hosking (Victoria GC President until recently) to talk all things preparation for the tournaments as well as women and the game in general. Add leading Australian golf writer Karen Harding to the mix and you have all the ingredients for an episode full of insight and eloquence (despite her suggestion the epsiode should be titled Three Women and a Baby!)

Returning to one of Good-Good’s favourite topics - the role of media in golf - we return to one of Good-Good’s favourite past guests - Bill Fields.
Bill Fields maybe as close as golf gets to being graced with journalistic royalty.
