Episode 153: Carnoustie
The Women's British Open is this weekend at famed Carnoustie so we brought in a true Scotsman, John Huggan, to talk about it. An up-front caveat, though, we spend more time discussing golf at large than we do Carnoustie, because in John's words, there's just not that much going on. So come for Tron and Randy discussing news of the day in the first part of the episode, and stay for John Huggan discussing his wider thoughts on the game of golf in the second part. You can find John writing at Golf Digest, and on twitter @johnhuggan. Enjoy!
