History is all about stories and on this episode we get right to the chase in a game I call "Name Assocition." I simply say a name to Ben Wright and then stand back and wait to hear a wonderful story - an often a story I had never heard before.
Stories on Seve, Bobby Jones, Sam Snead, Gene Sarazen, Ken Venturi, Byron Nelson, Walter Hagen, Arnold Palmer, Dan Jenkins, Peter Allis, Sean Connery, Gary Player, Lee Trevino, Ben Hogan, and Jack Nicklaus.
Some of these stories will make you laugh...others may shock you.
A note to parents: adult language is present in this podcast.

And the search for the lost apostrophe...
Listen in and learn more about what is usually the first major of the year and in 2020 will be the last major of the year.
