What's the name of the Peter Thomson book, please?
10.29.2013 | Unregistered CommenterIvan Morris
Ivan, it's called A Life in Golf, published by Slattery Media here in Australia (http://www.slatterymedia.com/store/viewItem/a-life-in-golf). Not sure whether you can purchase from outside Australia but they will be able to tell you.

Huggie, agree Jaime is fantastic.

Lack of depth in the field.

Thank you, Rod! I'll be down under in 2014. In Melbourne and Sydney. How about a game?
10.29.2013 | Unregistered CommenterIvan Morris
Sounds great Ivan, I'm in Sydney just let me know when.
10.29.2013 | Unregistered CommenterRod Morri
Ivan,

I'm in Melbourne and would be more than happy to arrange a game.

Great discussion as always fellas!

Interesting description of Rory........."soft".

Great stuff. I do have to point out a slight flaw in Jaime's logic regarding player access to print media. If they're making more money and getting better tv ratings at a time with less print access, I don't really think they're killing the golden goose. Since tv is the only thing paying them (either directly, or indirectly through getting sponsor logos on air), not pissing off tv is all they have to worry about.

Spot on, @JohnHuggan...
10.29.2013 | Unregistered CommenterLooseImpediment
Thank you Baron but I am well-fixed up in Melbourne.

Great blog boys but WHERE'S HUGGIE ? It was so much better with the addition of the wee man from Dunbar, love his straight talking - bring him back for future episodes please Rod.
11.1.2013 | Unregistered CommenterLaddie Lay
Agree with Laddie - Huggan always tells it as it is, bring him back for future podcasts please. Like the way in which he stirs the pot !
Just listened to the episode today, and wonderful as always!

The Thomson book is available through the iTunes store:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/a-life-in-golf/id705053663?mt=11

Looking forward to giving it a read!
