The Original Caveman

Jim Wagner on his legendary life in the dirt

Episode 162: The Original Caveman The Golfer's Journal Podcast

Though at first glance it may read as a third-line act at Lollapalooza, golf architecture diehards know the Cavemen as the unsung heroes who have helped Jim Wagner, along with his partner Gil Hanse, rise to their position as one of the finest design-build firms in the game. Wagner joins fellow Philly native Tom Coyne to offer an inside look at his firm’s process, and the collection of globe-trotting, earth-moving shapers responsible for masterpieces from Ohoopee to Ladera and beyond. Also on the docket: Delco talk, the long-awaited Cobbs Creek renovation, and a future project Wagner calls “Cruden Bay in Texas.”
