Scott Michaux, Augusta Chronicle columnist/golf writer

scott-michaux-mug1

Scott Michaux is a former Augusta Chronicle colleague of mine, and for my money, he’s one of the best golf writers in the country. He knows so much about golf, and since we’re midway through Masters week with the tournament about to begin, it’s entirely appropriate that we welcome Michaux to the #MTTS podcast.

In our chat, we talk about whether coverage of golf — and the interest in it shown by the public — will noticeably shift when Tiger Woods is done with the game, what it’s like to work for the Augusta Chronicle during Masters week and how a newspaper with a circulation of less than 60,000 per day becomes the paper of record for those seven days, and what it’s like for a sports writer to play the Augusta National course.

Plus, he tells a great story about how he got Tiger Woods one-on-one at a tournament in San Diego in 2006, why Michaux is terrified that Bubba Watson will win the Masters again, and if the fact his boss is a member of Augusta National affects the way he has to write about the tournament.

Here’s something similar:

Michaux and Steve Elling are good buddies and former golf writing colleagues. Elling, of course, was our guest on Episode 19. Which you can find right here.
