The conclusion of our two part podcast on the Legacy of Willie Park Senior. This episode includes the stories of Open Champions Mungo and Willie park Junior as well as the history of the only 9 hole golf course to host an Open Championship, Musselburgh Links.
A special thanks to my new friend, Mungo Park. Make sure to look out for Mungo's new book in 2022 on the history of Musselburgh Links and the Park Family.
I would like to thank my 10 year old daughter, Charlotte for closing out the show today.

TalkinGolf History welcomes the Great Grandson of our first major championship winner to the show to discuss his Great Grandfather's Legacy - the first Open Championship winner, 4 time Open Champion, brother to an Open Champion and son to a two-time Open Champion.
The Park Legacy is not spoken with the same reverance we give to his counterpart who lived in St Andrews. On our show, Mungo Park and I discuss why the voices of the Park's have been muted by time along with the golfing history of the Honourable Town known as Musselburgh.
