Not Another Golf Podcast: Episode 4 – British Masters

Hosts Alex Perry and Ben Coley are joined by Hillside secretary Chris Williams to get the fascinating inside story on the 2019 British Masters, and Andy Johnson of The Fried Egg joins us to discuss Trinity Forest
 

Hello. So, they’re still letting us make this podcast and as we’re at Hillside for the British Masters it makes sense to do one from here.

If you’re not aware of the situation, Hillside were due to host the British Masters in 2020, but when the European Tour couldn’t find a host for this year, the Merseyside club stepped in and, along with host Tommy Fleetwood, agreed to take it on.

One problem: They had seven months to organise and hold a European Tour event.

So I headed down to the glorious Hillside clubhouse to chat with Chris Williams to get a behind-the-scenes take on how it all happened – and, I hope you’ll agree, it’s very interesting.

Elsewhere, we have a snippet from defending champion Eddie Pepperell which first featured on episode 1 of Not Another Golf Podcast, and my co-host Ben Coley spoke to Andy Johnson of The Fried Egg to get a fascinating insight into Trinity Forest, the host of this week’s AT&T Byron Nelson.

Sadly, Ben was taken ill before he travelled over to Southport (“something’s going round” and other such cliches) so he couldn’t be on the podcast, but it seemed a shame to not be able to use these two interviews that we had gone to great lengths to record.

So here we are with episode 4 of Not Another Golf Podcast. Enjoy.

About Not Another Golf Podcast

Ben Coley, of Sporting Life, and I go way back (at least 2013) and we’ve been talking about doing a golf podcast for a while.

We decided we would just create something that included a few minutes of chat followed by at least one interesting guest. Have we peaked too soon? We’ll see…

So here we are, and we hope you like it – because if you don’t they may not let us make any more.

You can follow Ben and me on Twitter at @BenColeyGolf and @AlexPerryNCG respectively.
