State Of The Game Podcast 25: Geoff Ogilvy & Muirfield

Last time we had Matthew Goggin fresh off a solid showing at Merion in the U.S. Open, this time we managed to get Geoff Ogilvy to chat from Scotland during his pre-Open Championship leisure golf. Topics covered include Muirfield, the state of Geoff's game and of course, the state of the game.

We kept him too long but the discussion was great until the cell phone Gods said enough! Hope you enjoy either via iTunes or hitting play on the the player below...

These podcasts are terrific but how do you pause them, so you can listen to them in segments? Every time I try to do it - it goes back to the beginning. It's hard to find 1-hour and 25-minutes to listen to you guys, good and all as the discussions are, for that length of unbroken time.

Hi Ivan and thanks for raising this issue. If you go to this link you should be able to download the episode to your computer and that way you will be able to listen at your own leisure. I am still trying to figure out how to include this option with the player you see on this page. Also if you subscribe to the podcast you will have the episodes at your disposal in a similar fashion.

Thanks Rod - I'll give that a shot. Geoff Ogilvy is a breath of fresh air. He's a professional who loves the game and doesn't concern himself with money issues all of the time.

Fantastic podcast guys! Can Mr. Ogilvy be a regular?! It was a breath of fresh air listening to active pro engage in intelligent dialogue about the game instead of the thoughtless drivel, you hear from many players or those covering the game.

Best podcast yet. Always interesting to hear MC's views and a bonus to hear a fellow Melburnian in the form of GO. This certainly got the juices flowing for upcoming trips to St Andrews next month, and East Lothian in October. One suggestion for Ivan - simply download the podcast from I Tunes onto an I pod and then listen whilst driving. Whenever the I Pod is stopped, it starts up again at the point where it was paused. BTW, when does Huggan reappear ? I like his strong views !

I've enjoyed the whole series, but the last 2 have been just sensational. Thanks to all involved. :)

I did what you said, Rod, and it worked. LIstened to the whole conversation in two sessions. It was sensational. Great chat, great guests. More of the same, please.

Glad it worked out for you Ivan and even more glad you enjoyed it.

Never noticed that Mr. Morri was lurking...

Very enjoyable and interesting episode. Seemed the audio quality was improved on this one. Looking forward to the next.

Geoff, have a big time in Scotland!
