455:The 1969 Ryder Cup that Shocked the World with author Neil Sagebiel


455: In 1969, The Ryder Cup teetered on the brink of irrelevancy, and perhaps being discontinued. But the historic “Concession” offered by Jack Nicklaus to Tony Jacklin on the final hole at Royal Birkdale changed everything. Author Neil Sagebiel returns (#353 & #354) to discuss at length his latest book “Draw In The Dunes: The 1969 Ryder Cup and the Finish That Shocked the World”.

This book is now available for purchase or download in our Golfers’Mart at http://smarterpodcasts.com/golfsmarter/golfersmart/featured-books/

See a video replay of the “Concession” from the 69 Ryder Cup on our blog.

Also in this episode, host Fred Greene talks about his harrowing experience and escape from Hurricane Odile in Los Cabos, Mexico, and his remarkable round of golf upon his return. A news story about his “Odile Ordeal” is also on the blog.
