Advanced Ball Striking welcomes legendary golf writer Al Barkow to our site. Al will be releasing a subscription based quarterly webzine through our forum, packed with fascinating articles, interviews, instructional tips and endless insights as only Al can do.

As the former editor of both Golf Magazine and Golf Illustrated, Al was also the chief writer and associate producer for the Shell's Wonderful World of Golf series from 1963-69. Barkow has been covering golf since the early 1960's, has walked the fairways with Hogan and Snead, Nicklaus, Palmer, Player and just about anyone you can imagine. He is also a fine player of the game himself still to this day.

Look for the first issue of this ground breaking webzine the first week of November!

Welcome Al

Great to have you here Al - a real priviledge for us. I'm sure we are all looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the game and how it has changed over the years. As a big fan of the Shell series perhaps I can be cheeky and ask you for your favourite match during your time on the show? Though I am disqualifying the answer Hogan vs Snead, which I think was your first one, as being too simple an answer, even if its the truthful one!

All the best, Arnie

Welcome Al,
Looking forward to another point of view from a different tack. What's it like playing often with Lag? My sister lives in Menlo Park, so when I visit, maybe you, Lag and I can meet at the Mare for a game :P . All the best!

Welcome aboard Al!

It'll be great to hear your perspective on all things golf. I wasn't aware of your WWOG association....... I hope you'll share some of your experiences with that production!

Thanks for joining us here,

Robbo

Thanks for the responses. I'm really looking forward to this. And yes, Hogan-Snead was the most memorable match in my years with the Shell Show, but another that I liked was Lema-DeVicenzo in Greece. Lema was a terrific guy and wonderful to watch with that big classic but refined caddie-swing.
It's going to be fun.

I'm anxious to see what you come up with Al. Most of my 'education' about players before I entered golf comes from 'LagPressure' and email conversations we've had. It will be really nice to get more of that from you.

I think we all benefit from a better understanding of those who hit before us. Sometimes you're just not sure if what you read is 'legend' or 'myth'. It's nice to have you here.
