Persimmon Golf Today friend and “Talkin Golf” host Rod Morri was nice enough to spend some time with me talking about traditional golf and the new website. The interview covers the origins of this website, the various reasons why momentum for traditional/persimmon golf is growing in the modern era, and the practical aspects of playing [...]

As we start to populate the site with fresh interviews, threads, articles, etc. we’ll occasionally dip into some “old stock” material.
