Office Hours with Sid Matthew

Meet Bobby Jones' former counsel, and your favorite golf historian’s favorite golf historian

Meet Sid Matthew, your favorite golf historian’s favorite golf historian.

In TGJ No. 15 we explored Sid Matthew’s extensive golf collection in “Office Hours.” But on today’s podcast, we discover that his most prized possessions are his collection of Bobby Jones stories. Having worked in the Jones’ Atlanta law office, Matthew has become the game’s foremost Jones historian. He takes us behind the scenes (and over the crazy hurdles) of making his famous Jones documentary, regales us with tales of playing with his late, great friend Sean Connery and inside the origins of the golf collecting boom—including a club that sold for more than $200,000.
