The 3 off the Tee Podcast

Ep 58 | The Retief Goosen Interview | 2 Time US Open Champion

June 10, 2021

Since we started the Podcast in early 2020, this weeks guest has been in our Top 5 bucket list players to chat to. We are thrilled to have the great South African Retief Goosen on this weeks Pod.

  • We chat the early years, the infamous lightening strike & military service with his good buddy Ernie Els.
  • As we build towards the US Open next week, this two time winner (2001 & 2004) talks us through the three putt on the 72nd hole in 2001 which consequently led to an 18 hole Play-off victory over Mark Brooks. 
  • Arguably Retief’s greatest win was in 2004 when he took on Phil Mickelson, the partisan New York crowds and a near unplayable Shinnecock Hills to claim his second US Open. 
  • Commonly referred to as “The Iceman”, Retief chats on how to thrive under pressure and we also get his refreshing opinions on the distance debate.
