On the heels of
The Open at Carnoustie, we put together an episode celebrating the
things that make links golf special. We start with a reading of
D.J. Piehowski’s piece, “Beneath the Machair” from TGJ No. 1
(1:35 mark), which details the history of the once-lost
Askernish golf course. Up next is a conversation with contributor
Tom Coyne (17:37 mark), who has played (nearly) every links course
in Ireland and Scotland. The episode concludes with a reading of
his essay, “Sacred Sands” from TGJ No.
2 (44:10 mark).
