Today we spoke to Tom Coyne - best-selling golf author, host of 'The Golfers Journal' podcast, and lover of all things golf.
Tom is a regular contributor to 'The Golfer’s Journal' and is the author of 4 of golf’s most unique books, “A Gentleman’s Game,” “Paper Tiger”, “A Course Called Scotland" and "A Course Called Ireland". Much of his writing focuses on links golf, a passion that was refined during his research for his Irish book- in which Tom walked the perimeter of the country while playing every links course in Ireland.
Tom has written for Golf Magazine, Golfweek, Sports Illustrated and The New York Times, and appeared on many podcasts like 'No Laying Up'.
We talk about the Irish DNA and what makes it special for Tom. We discuss links golf and the community that plays the sport in Ireland - in comparison to the US.
It was fascinating to hear about the journey Tom embarked on when he nearly made it pro, and the future of golf.
See you here soon for a round Tom!
