With 100 episodes behind us, we reflect back on our podcast experiences since our beginning in April, 2021 and look ahead to what our listeners should expect from us going forward. Please join us as we recount some of the great stories that we have heard in the 31 interviews done to-date. We've talked with some of the greatest golfers who have ever played the game and all have been so gracious with their time. We've visited with 12 World Golf Hall of Fame members and 26 major championship winners. All told, our guests have won 73 majors, 409 PGA Tour events and 1,012 professional tournaments world-wide. Hear about our upcoming guests and our vision for this podcast over the long-term as we aim to visit with each of the living winners of major championships and tell their story, in their voices, "FORE the Good of the Game."
Golf Professional and Golf Course Architect
Professional golfer, broadcaster, course designer and philanthropist, Australian-born Bruce Devlin amassed 40 world-wide wins in his professional career. As a young man, he followed his father and began an apprenticeship in plumbing. It wasn’t until a tragic accident took his father’s arm that he began playing golf at age 13. As a fine amateur player, Bruce enjoyed a great deal of success with wins at the Australian Amateur and Australian Open before turning 23. In 1958, as a member of the Australian team, he won team and individual honors at the inaugural Eisenhower Trophy played at the Old Course in St. Andrews. He turned pro in 1961 and won his first international event in 1962. Over his career, he also achieved eight victories on the U.S. PGA Tour. In 1972, he earned $119,768 and finished eighth on the money list. Bruce was inducted into the Texas Golf Hall of Fame in 2014. Bruce is one of only four golfers to have scored a double eagle at the Masters Tournament. He achieved this in the first round of the 1967 Masters, holing a 4-wood from 248 yards on the par-5 8th hole. His last victory came on the Senior PGA Tour in 1995. At the end of the 1998 golf season, he retired from the Senior PGA Tour to concentrate on his Golf Course Architecture and Design business and his commitment to ESPN's Golf Telecasts. He worked for NBC from 1977 to 1982 and ESPN from 1983 to 1987. Bruce currently serves as Board Chairman for The Devlin Foundation and is an active volunteer with The Ben Hogan Foundation.
