In reading Herbert Warren Wind's book Following Through, Andy uncovered a chapter about a professional tournament that took place in 1964 where the players were only allowed to use 7 clubs. Andy shares the section with Peter Donahue and Jantzen and they discuss their reactions, their preferred 7 club set up, and the difference between valuing skill vs. score in golf.
Peter and Andy recap their trip to Lost Dunes and The Dunes Club. They also discuss the state of their games, and Peter gives Andy some direction for his game going forward.
Peter Donahue joins Andy for a wide ranging conversation. Pete gives his thoughts on the most recent podcast, Andy recaps the recent history of the Minnesota Vikings, and they cover the various stories we tell ourselves on the course, and how they are not always very helpful.
Pete, Jantzen, and Andy dive deep into a Yale University study on how the temperature of your drink impacts the way you see other people. They discuss the implications of this, and whether we have as much ownership over our thoughts, opinions, and even golf games as we think we do.
Andy is joined by special guests Steve Schreck and Alex Prior to preview the 2021 TGP Fall Staff Trip. They start out by discussing the Dunes Club and Lost Dunes. They share what they believe makes each course great, as well as what they look for in a golf course. At the end, the teams and format for the 2021 trip are announced to some contention.
