Welcome to The Thing about Golf, a podcast series from Golf Australia magazine where we explore what it is that draws people to this, the most maddening stick and ball game of them all.
In this, Episode #1, we have the remarkable story of one of the finest amateur players of recent times that you’ve likely never heard of, a player whose career trajectory goes against almost all accepted wisdom.
She didn't start playing the game until she was 24 and didn’t get serious about it until she reached her early 40’s. Today, at 56, she’s a plus handicap golfer, prolific tournament winner, mother of four and grandmum to six. This is the extraordinary Sue Wooster story.
We hope you enjoyed Rod Morri's conversation with Sue Wooster and make sure to come back on June 12 when we’ll chat with Australia golf’s ultimate power couple Bob and Kathie Shearer.
