Episode 2: Lon Hinkle (Part 2) - A Golf Life



Former PGA Tour player Lon Hinkle again joins me to discuss the rest of his playing career. We pick things up at the peak of his career in 1979 with his account of the famous Hinkle Tree. He talks through the rest of his prime, his struggles, his comeback, and some more of his adventurous travels. Lon goes on to tell the fortuitous circumstances that led him to settle in a small Montana town, where he still resides. He gives some thoughts on the state of the modern game and his views on golf course design before concluding with what he has been up to during Covid (hint: golf).
