Huggan Headlines Ep. 57 of The iSeekGolf Podcast

Highly regarded Scottish golf journalist, John Huggan, was a guest on today The iSeekGolf Podcast and - true to form - didn't shy away from making his views on the game clear. 

Huggan - together with host Rod Morri and iSeekGolf contributor Bruce Young - discussed a wide range of topics including Adam Scott's world rankings decline which leaves him in danger of missing his first US Open since 2001.

Scott is currently ranked 71st in the world and needs to climb inside the top 60 by May 21 if he is to avoid Sectional Qualifying in order to gain a start at Shinnecock Hills in June.  


Huggan questioned Scott's scheduling and wondered if the former World No. 1's lack of play was contributing to his form slump.

“Much more than the putting - and the putting is the first thing you look at with Adam always," Huggan said. "He is such a beautiful swinger and great ball-striker but I have always wondered why he hardly ever plays.

"Even when he was at the top of the game you wouldn’t see him for weeks on end and that always made me wonder as to just how much this guy wants it or needs it in his life - the acclaim and the titles and the money. He always seemed to be off doing something else rather than playing golf.

“I am just thinking out loud but that for me is a far bigger issue than the putting.”

Being on the ground at the TPC Sawgrass, Huggan had plenty to say on the emerging Woods/Mickelson ‘bromance’, the changing nature of media coverage of golf tournaments, the return of Jason Day’s mojo in 2018 and his view on last week’s Golf Sixes.

Always prepared to 'say it as he sees it' is John Huggan and today’s podcast was no exception.
