Joel Zuckerman's new golf book A Hacker's Humiliations, PGA and LPGA Tours' 2007 season reviewed, a tip of the cap to par-3 courses
Hear this latest episode of TravelGolf.com This Week.
Golf is a game of humility. In this week’s podcast, host Dave Berner talks to author Joel Zuckerman about his new book, A Hacker’s Humiliations: A Glossary of Golf Grotesqueries, which details some of the most humiliating moments in golf.
“I talk about hacker hall of fame moments, like Phil Mickelson at Winged Foot last year, Jean Van de Velde at the British Open in 1989,” says Zuckerman, who also blogs at WorldGolf.com. “The point being, if the best of the best hack it up, what chance do the rest of us have?”
So what kind of year was it for professional golf? Golf writer William K. Wolfrum gives his opinion. “I think this was a good year,” he says. “I’ve enjoyed, just like everybody else, giving the FedEx Cup playoffs a hard time because, to me, it just comes off as contrived. But overall there’s been a lot of good things this year, on both the LPGA and PGA tours.”
In this week’s What’d You Like Segment, Equipment Editor Kiel Christianson lauds par-3 golf courses for giving a range of golfers, from kids to seniors, the chance to enjoy the game.
This podcast is supported by Walters Golf in Las Vegas, Scottish Golf Holidays and San Diego Golf Central.
