Chipping Away: The Golf Addiction Epidemic – The Par Train Podcast #47

Topics and commentary of the Par Train show do not necessarily reflect the views of THP Media.

The THP Radio Network is proud to present The Par Train. The show brings topical PGA Tour conversation mixed with hilarious comedy and we are honored to have it as part of our lineup on The Hackers Paradise Podcast Network. You can follow them on Twitter @TheParTrain.


Chipping away is a new mini series where the Train crew unpacks why certain things are the way they are — asking questions that others aren’t asking. Why is golf an addiction, why does it make people crazy, is it an elitist game, shared suffering or the ultimate bitch lover? Yes. We said bitch lover. Hope your mind is ready for this one, because it’s about to be blown.
