Episode 74 – Gullane, North Berwick & St Andrews with Geoff Shackelford

Geoff Shackelford makes his second appearance on the podcast to discuss the two weeks he spent firstly at the Scottish Open at Gullane before heading to St Andrews for the 144th Open Championship.

Geoff starts by sharing his thoughts on Gullane, the time spent playing North Berwick West Links with yours truly, the other course in town, The Glen and his all round fondness to the East Lothian region of Scotland.

Geoff doesn’t hold back on his thoughts on what he describes as ‘changes that should never have really happened‘. Check out Geoff’s thoughts on the Old Course ‘changes’ and his excellent Q&A with our good friend Graylyn Loomis.

After Heathrow did their best to lose his new Callaway irons Geoff made sure he shipped the sticks home with Luggage Forward, a service which we recommend on the podcast.
