Podcast host Dave Berner welcomes Peter Hazelton of Pioneer Golf, who says that after falling from the ranks of “must-plays” in Scotland, Murcar Links Golf Club is enjoying a rebirth as it approaches its centennial in 2009.
“It fell from grace, now its enjoying something of a renaissance,” Hazelton says. “Thanks to some strong youthful club leadership, and this week it’s hosting a European Challenge event. It’s a place where the true connoisseur can enjoy true links golf.”
“It’s got three prongs it sits on, which is supposed to reduce friction,” Christianson says. “It reduces that spin, and if you happen to hit down on it a little, it doesn’t pop it out. And they’re practically indestructible.”
“I have a problem with the idea that now it’s become more and more prevalent you have to pay a fee to volunteer,” he says. “Their getting free labor force, and now you have to pay to be part of a select group that’s working for free … it takes advantage of people.”
Lastly, WorldGolf.com, “Golf’s First Home Page” is getting a new look and attitude.
