Description

This golf enthusiast has been addicted to golf since I was 8 years old, that's 40 years to you and me.  Always trying to get the best deal on forged golf irons before they are all gone.  Classic forged irons are really what get me excited about hitting golf balls the way they were intended to be hit.  That goes for classic putters and classic persimmon woods too.  Golf is far too expensive and it doesn't have to be.  Golf can be participated in for far less money than what you think.  Golf equipment, golf balls at the range, golf outings at the local muni, outings at upper echelon golf courses, and maybe attending the infrequent PGA Tour tournament.  

I started the Forged Golf Club Appreciation page on Facebook.

I also make videos The Knackered Golfist on YouTube.

Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again Fellow Golfists, Got to do another talk and drive about golf on my way to a coastal destination in Sonoma County California. Got to pontificate about the importance of making an American major golf championship difficult. So many people think that birdies and eagles make for more entertaining major championship golf but, they are wrong. To me birdiefest golf is really boring. &nb...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again Golfists, Got to play again after work this past friday in late June 2024 and I bought some balls from Walmart that were a bit more reasonable than another golf store that I visited recently. Also got to play Hiddenbrooke for the 2nd time this month and was surprised how differently the course played with little wind. Thanks for listening to The Knackered Golfist Podcast!!Check out my ...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again Fellow Golfists,Got inspired after hitting the range at Sacramento National after feeling sick to my stomach watching myself in my most recent video waggling the club and not being anchored in my stance. Thanks to Rick Shiels for making a helpful video about hitting the ball high and low and with a draw and a fade. Also shared info on a new golf handicap / index provider.  ...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again Fellow Golfists, It was really hard to see Rory not win the US OPEN on Father's Day when he had it in the palm of his hand. Rory should have faced the media and shaken Bryson's hand. Bryson earned the win of the US OPEN and won the hearts and minds of many golf fans. Hope you have a great week.Thanks for listening to The Knackered Golfist Podcast. Support the Show.#theknacke...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again Golfists, I had a really fun outing at Hiddenbrooke Golf Club in Vallejo California in June of 2024. I had a ball learning more about what it is like to play golf in the wind. It was a pleasant close to the bay type of an outing that really had some brilliant cool breezes that I really enjoyed after a dreadful Friday at work. Anyway I played the Palmer tees and I got to pla...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello Fellow Golfists, I had a really brilliant time playing golf in 30 mph winds at Bodega Harbour Golf Links in Bodega Bay California in mid June of 2024. I had a ball playing golf the way it was originally intended, Links Golf!! I got to make 2 videos for the youtube channel and I thought they turned out pretty good with some good music that I cannot share on this podcast. So this episode...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again fellow Golfists, Just wanted to put out there my take on what I hope to see throughtout this weekend of major championship golf from Pinehurst Number 2 in North Carolina. I hope that it goes well and I am again rooting for Scottie Scheffler.I'd love to know where you are listening to this podcast from. I am a geography fanatic and I love learning about new places. I'd love to rea...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again Fellow Golfists,I was in a twosome in a best ball tournament and my partner and I shot a combined score of 9 under par 58 finishing 2nd place behind a group that shot 56. The tournament took place at Davis Golf Course in Davis California which is a par 67 golf course. I really tried to summarize what the experience was like because I have never been that successful at doing golf, ever. The ...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again fellow golfists,Got to try out a few clubs that were worked on recently which included an old fairway metal wood getting a new shaft. I also changed shafts on an old pitching wedge. Special shout out in this episode goes out to Mr. Tilk from Orange County California. He messaged me this week and it was nice to hear that someone actually listens to this podcast regularly. If you ...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again fellow Golfists,I really enjoyed watching the final round of The Masters with Mr Producer. It was so awe inspiring to watch Scottie Scheffler win his 2nd Green Jacket at The 2024 Masters Tournament in Augusta Georgia. His performance on that day showed me that he had a 15th club in the bag that gave him the confidence to be able to tackle any and every shot that was presented to him during ...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again fellow golfists, I watched a bit of golf last weekend and it was a great victory for Scottie Scheffler. He got a new Taylor Made mallet putter and he was really rolling the rock really well at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and won the tournament at 15 under par. I shared a bit of time with Mr Esch and viewed his huge golf collection that is up for sale on Facebook Market Place. ...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again Fellow Golfists, First of all, thank you for downloading and listening to any of my golf related podcast episodes. I hope that listening to any of these golf episodes helps you thrive throughout your day in one way or another. I try to be a bit irreverent and I try to tell it like I see it. I got to visit a putting green on a Sunday afternoon in-between the final 2 NFL football g...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again fellow Golfists, I am now a believer in the Karsten Solheim / Ping way of putting. For years I have never been able to use a Ping style putter the way it was designed and intended. After 40 years of perseverance I can now say that I can putt much more consistently with a Ping putter. I had an outing with a Ping B63 putter at Mather Golf Course and made a video that is up on my Yo...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again Fellow Golfists,Well I was practicing with a Ping Pal 4 BeCu putter at Thunder Valley Golf Resort and it went well. I don't know if I cracked a putter code or anything but it sure seems that I was putting a bit more consistently with my Ping Pal 4 putter. I also made a video of my session on the youtube channel. Thanks for listening to The Knackered Golfist!https://youtu.be/_4HAsDdYHV...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again Golfists, I got to go out to the range on a Friday afternoon and shake down a new to me set of irons that I traded a bunch of putters for last week. I got a new to me set of FORGED Founders Club Tour CB THE JUDGE irons that was 3 thru 9 iron and I picked up a Mizuno MP 9 Pitching Wedge that was in the single club rack at my local Play It Again Sports. Separate from the MP9 PW, these cl...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again Fellow Golfists!!I purchased a new to me 2 iron from a bargain rack at Play It Again Sports and tonight was my first outing with it. It is a Ben Hogan Apex Redline 2 iron with the Hogan Apex Extra 4 shaft. I hit a few good ones but all in all I think that this particular shaft was worth the price. If I ever get my hands on a Wilson Staff Gooseneck FG53 2 iron I just might put this sha...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again Fellow Golfists, Well it was rare for me to actually have fun at Sacramento National on a night that had a gorgeous sunset, gorgeous moon, and a gentle breeze that kept things relatively cool on a Friday night in middle to late October 2023. On this night I shared the time between hitting mostly fully dimpled Srixon Marathon Range balls with my Wilson Staff Goosenecks, new to me Ping Tisi dr...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again Fellow Golfists, I got to catch the final round of the 2023 Fortinet Championship from Silverado Resort in Napa California on the Peacock channel and was so happy to see Sahith Theegala win his first ever tournament on the PGA Tour!!The powers at be decided to reroute the golf course for this tournament to enhance the drama coming down the stretch to have much more of a climactic ending to this gr...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again Fellow Golfists, This host made an investment in a golf training aide product that already shaved 5 strokes off my game in my most recent golf outing. I shot 75 on a golf course where I normally shoot 80 or 81. Under difficult conditions at my local municipal golf course I had a very good day of golf. I owe my success this past weekend to the device that is called the Leadbetter ...
Send Me A Text Message I would love to know where you are listening to me from!!Hello again Fellow Golfists, I wanted to share that I listened to a great historical podcast last night and thought that Conor T. Lewis and his TalkinGolf Podcast did a great job discussing the history of the Ben Hogan Golf Company with John Barba of MyGolfSpy.com. This episode was so great at describing and documenting all of the great history that happened when Mr Hogan was involved in his company.&nb...
