Serious talk for serious golfers

About the show

The podcast network for serious golfers. TalkinGolf launched as an online audio show way back before podcasts (or even the iPhone) were a thing. We've been on an extended break since 2012 but now we're back and creating new and interesting content each week as well as a sprinkling of some of the best stuff from the archives.

Episodes

  • Episode 25: TG History 25: 125 years of the USGA

    December 22nd, 2019  |  Season 1  |  1 hr 42 mins

    On this episode of the TalkinGolf History Podcast we celebrate the USGA's 125th anniversary with our special guest, Senior Golf Historian for the USGA, Victoria Nenno. On this episode, Victoria discusses what preceded the USGA, the events that led to its creation and the early years of the organization.

    Sounds stuffy? Don't count on it - the stories that unfold are both interesting and comical even as Connor tries to convince Victoria (unsuccessfully) that Willie Dunn is in fact the first US Open Champion.

    This podcast should be an instant classic.
