Episode #69 is a fascinating show on one of golf's most mysterious debates - Did Ben Hogan win 5 US Opens and not 4? The story hinges on the designiation of the 1942 Hale America National Open, which was held in place of the canceled 1942 US Open. Some have fought for decades to declare this event a US Open while others have scoffed at the idea.
Author Peter May recently published a new book, "The Open Question: Ben Hogan and Golf's Most Enduring Controversey" joins us on the show to argue the case for Ben Hogan winning his 5th US Open.
Its a great interview which ends with my thoughts on the controversy.

Episode #61 is the 4th installment of my sitdown interview with Masters Announcer, Ben Wright. In the previous installments Mr. Wright shared some amazing stories with us including- his friendship with Ben Hogan, how he helped put the Beatles on tv for the first time, when Jack Nicklaus shed a tear from a fellow player, how Ben felt that he had jinxed a player at the Masters, how he punched out another player and many many stories that have never previously been shared.
On this installment Ben shares a few more stories and adds a bit of color to the stories he has shared before.
It was an absolute pleasure to sit down with broadcasting legend, Ben Wright - I sincerely hope you have enjoyed our time together.

Episode #61 kicks off #MastersMarch for the TalkinGolf History Podcast. Five podcasts in 5 weeks, in our countdown to the 2021 Masters with stories you won't hear anywhere else.
What better way to kick off this series than with a story that has nothing to do with golf - or atleast the first 15 minutes of our show has nothing to do with golf. If you are a Beatles Fan listen in for this unknown backstory of how the Beatles made their first tv appearance ever! I hope you Beatles fanatics listen past the first 15 minutes, but if not, you can skip to my outgoing message and a little more color to the story.
For the golf fans there is plenty of meat for you as well including how Ben Wright may have cost a friend a major championship, CBS's illegal calcutta and Ben's favorite moments from the Masters.

On this episode of the TalkinGolf History Podcast we dive into the profound history of Herbert Warren Wind. Few sports writers in history hold a candle to the great Herbert Warren WInd, and we golfers should cherish the fact that he was on our side.
If you think you know a lot about the man that the USGA named its highest honor in literature after, think again - his contributions to the game will echo in golf's history.
Our guests for today's show are Bradley Klein and Stephen Proctor.
