In this episode, Nathan has a conversation with his friend and Golf Digest Architecture Editor Ron Whitten. Ron has been in the business for decades and visited more courses than practically anyone else. He is also in charge of the Golf Digest rating process and panelists for all of the Top Courses lists. However, Ron is not a fan of being a guest on podcasts because he prefers to be the interviewer and not the interviewee. He also didn’t want to talk about himself, the rankings system, or the myriad of questions he is asked every time he sits down for an interview. Fair enough! He knocks it out of the park when Nathan tells him he can rant about anything he wants—from what’s wrong with golf architecture to the problems with the new USGA rules for 2019 to the divide caused by social media among golf architecture fans and critics. “Hey you kids, get off my lawn!” So sit back and enjoy “Ron Whitten - Unleashed” on this episode of The Lipouts Podcast and then visit our sponsor, www.HavePaintGunWillTravel.com!
