Meet Vera Wang's brother who hired Pete Dye to build Pound Ridge GC

Episode 60: Ken Wang The Golfer's Journal Podcast

Ken Wang has a degree in economics from MIT, is the brother of fashion designer Vera Wang, and, most important to us, is the founder/owner of the Pete Dye-designed Pound Ridge Golf Club in New York. He joins Tom Coyne to discuss his fervent belief in public courses, how Dye got what he wanted in the design, the democratization of the game, and how Vera plays “Bill Clinton golf.” Listen above.
