About this Episode

On the maiden voyage of the good ship Firm and Fast, we are very pleased to be joined by honorary Irishman Ally McIntosh, who joins us to whizz through the impact that Allan Robertson, Old Tom, the golden age's old dead guys, RTJ and Dick Wilson, Bill Crenshaw (whoever that is, sorry C&C :)), Tom Doak, masthead pros, trees, restoration, renovation and rankings have on our beloved game.

What makes for good golf?

Homogenisation , Conditioning, Committees, Good Shaping, Consistency and the Augusta effect?

It is our intention to revisit some of the topics covered in this episode in greater detail over future episodes. Thanks for tuning in, we hope you enjoy our ramblings!
