Erik and the team have landed in Australia to film a few episodes for season 3 of Adventures in Golf beginning their latest adventure in Kalgoorlie, and as far as we can tell they’re playing the world’s longest golf course, Nullarbor Links as they drive around the Great Australian Bight.
From LA to Kalgoorlie, Erik shot a video for his ‘Not A Golf Show’ documenting the arduous journey to the airport, on the planes and finally in the campervan in Australia.
Erik hasn’t quite got his Kalgoorlie pronunciation right, but as far as documenting long, boring journeys go, this is as entertaining as you’ll get. Perhaps even more entertaining that SBS’ The Ghan doco.
Few people have managed to capture the essence and beauty of golf the way Erik has over the years. We’re looking forward to seeing what he comes up with on golf in Australia.
Apparently the roos also have a speed limit here…? 6:28am at the beginning of perhaps one of the wildest golf treks of my little life. When we got here, our guide Graham asked me how I got into this and – after all that has happened in the past few years and more recently with the podcast and so many other fun projects – i got a lil choked up thinking about the winding turns of life. How comfortable I feel here right now, compared to the beginning when I literally had no idea how to do any of this… Really proves to me, once again, that saying yes is always the right answer… And literally while posting this, Stu walks up and says, you know where we were at exactly this time last year? Any guesses?? He smiles at me and says “on a small boat in Nepal under the stars watching a thunderstorm a few miles off, feeling the warm salty breeze splash into our faces”. Well, onward, upward and yesward. Thank you.
