BONUS - John Simpson - Golf's Most Successful Agent Discusses; Battling Polio, Getting Arrested In Columbia & Playing with Michael Jordan

Aug 29, 2022, 04:15 AM

Today we're delighted to be joined by John Simpson MBE - who at the age of two was stricken with Polio and essentially lost the use of his leg, but fought against the disease and ended up becoming one of the most important names in professional golf - managing the likes of  Nick Faldo, Vijay Singh, Bernhard Langer, Nick Price and other many other Tour players. In total, Simpson contributed to the careers of 17 major golf tournament winners.

He then went onto set up his own charity and foundation called 'on course' which uses golf to help wounded inured and sick military veterans with their physical and mental recoveries. 

From hanging out with Michael Jordan to being arrested in Columbia for apparent drug smuggling this is his incredible life story.
