On the heels of The Open at Carnoustie, we put together an episode celebrating the things that make links golf special. We start with a reading of D.J. Piehowski’s piece, “Beneath the Machair” from TGJ No. 1 (1:35 mark), which details the history of the once-lost Askernish golf course. Up next is a conversation with contributor Tom Coyne (17:37 mark), who has played (nearly) every links course in Ireland and Scotland. The episode concludes with a reading of his essay, “Sacred Sands” from TGJ No. 2 (44:10 mark).
If you enjoyed this you’ll love everything The Golfer’s Journal has to offer.
