NLU Podcast, Episode 131: Andy Johnson on Augusta National

Andy Johnson of Fried Egg fame finally joins the podcast to talk about Augusta National from an architecture standpoint. We talk about what we like, what we don’t like, and get some expert insight on what kind of changes he would like to see made at Augusta. We also talk about the history of the course, the changes to the course as technology has changed, and the spirit of what Alister Mackenzie intended. Thanks a ton to Andy for the time.
