The Golfing of America

Hosted by
The newest "woods" on the fairway -- Tiger Woods, has taken golf out of the country clubs and exclusive property of rich white males. While golf courses around the world are more exclusive than ever, the US is enjoying a democratization of the game, with a dramatic jump in television viewership and course construction. Is golf changing America or is America changing golf? We talk with students and philosophers of the game, as well as some players, about the game, the business and the manifestation of culture. We'll also visit a place where golf is still as imperialistic as ever.
