10 Questions With: The Tour Report

Get to know the brains behind the Tour Report podcast! 1995 PGA champion Steve Elkington answers ten questions, giving you an insight into what makes the podcast tick.

1. What inspired you to start podcasting?

I never thought I’d listen to podcasts – I’ve always been such a big reader. But this quickly became the way to go now and the popularity of podcasts continue to grow, especially in the golf space. It’s so easy to listen in the car, or wherever you go. We started the Secret Golf podcast to contribute to the golf industry and offer something different.


2. Do you have a favourite episode of your podcast?


I’d say when I took my son, Sam, to THE PLAYERS. We walked the course at the start of the week and I got to talk him through each of my shots on holes 16, 17 & 18. It’s always fun to reminisce my victories at TPC Sawgrass and it was special to do that podcast with him. After that, we went over to the range, Tiger was there and Sam got to hit a few putts with his iconic 18-major winning putter! That thing has killed more golfers than anything


3. Who is your dream guest?


Jack Nicklaus, my idol. Easy.


4. Favourite Podcast to listen to? (That isn’t yours)


I love true crime/serial killer podcasts. My daughter, Annie, got me into them. Patricia Cornwell is my favourite. I also listen to a lot of history podcasts, like about the Egyptian tombs.


5. Who are your top 5 Players of all time?


Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Ben Hogan, Sam Snead & Peter Thomson.

6. Who are the up and coming stars we should be looking out for?


Will Zalatoris is on everyone’s radar, and that win for him is coming soon. We listen to the TOUR players – we have 33 as Secret Golf contributors and they tell me who to look out for. They know! We walked around TPC Sawgrass in 2019 with two of our guys – Pat Perez & Jason Kokrak – who were playing with Collin Morikawa. He was very much an up and coming star then, and they knew it. Mito Pereira from Chile is one to watch right now.


7. How would you describe your podcast in three words?


“The facts only!”


8. Favourite underdog moment?


I’ve got to give the credit to my co-host, Diane Knox here. She backed her fellow Scot, Martin Laird, to win the Shriners tournament in Vegas last year at 250/1 – and he won! Absolute underdog moment on the podcast. She made a lot of people a lot of money that week.


9. Apart from Golf, are there any other sports you are interested
in?

Lots of sports, but my Houston Astros are my team in baseball. Being Australian, we grew up being outside, so I love to hunt and fish when I can.


10. At what age did you become a fan of Golf and was there a
moment that solidified your interest?

My parents would take me to play golf in Narrabri, Australia. My older brother used to play, and I went to my first clinic when I was 12. I was hooked after that.
