Back for our final pod covering the PGA major tournaments, PJ Malik (Statistician and Researcher for FOX Sports and PGA Tour Radio), talks about the history of the Open, a quick recap of where he’s been on tour, and his picks for Champion Golfer of the Year.
This past weekend was a special one. We were honored to have Dr. Joe Parent, author of the best-selling book Zen Golf, spend the last few days with NewClub in Chicago. It was an incredible experience spending time, learning from, and getting to know Dr. Joe.
He joined us for rounds around Chicago, played with us in the Stinger at Stonebridge CC, held playing lessons with our members, and became a friend for life.
There is much more to come for our society with Dr. Joe and we will be announcing more opportunities to meet and learn from him. Stay tuned.
Nathan Perry, PGA Head Golf Professional at Aurora Country Club, joins the Bag Drop from “Ernesto’s Cave” (the locker room manager’s office) to talk golf architecture, compelling golf courses, and what makes a great round.
In this episode, I spoke with Patrick Crow, the head professional at Chicago Highlands in Westchester, Illinois. Patrick and I spoke about why he’s passionate about his job and his club, what it was like going to school for a career in golf, and whether they should keep wearing pants on tour.
