What starts as a grill room debate with one of my best friends about Tobacco Road Golf Club evolved into a deep dive into blind shots on the golf course. At issue are the merits and differences between blind tee shots versus blind approach shots. To help settle the point, I tap friends and experts from a broad cross-section of the golf world to talk with me about blind shots.
This is by far the longest Blind Shots Podcast episode, but I think it’s a worthy listen. It didn’t change my mind, but it did open it a little bit, and that’s rarely a bad thing.
