Local Knowledge: A new podcast from Golf Digest


Golf Digest’s new podcast, Local Knowledge, will draw on the brand’s strengths as the game’s premier storytellers by producing deep-dive audio programs into specific topics that resonate with golfers.



Keely Levins is an associate editor at Golf Digest. She graduated from Middlebury College, where she competed on the golf and cross-country ski teams. Her golf life is now less about competition and more about convincing courses to let her and her husband bring a stroller on-course.


Alex Myers is a senior writer at Golf Digest, where he has written about all things golf since 2009. His weekly column, The Grind, has been around since 2013, and the accompanying videos make his mom proud. Prior to that, Alex was a sports reporter at The Journal News after graduating from Wake Forest, where he was definitely not on the golf team. He has never had a hole-in-one and probably never will, so don't ask him about that.


Shane Ryan has written for Golf Digest since 2014. His journalism career began at Grantland, he's the author of the golf books Slaying the Tiger and The Cup They Couldn't Lose, and he's been published everywhere from the New York Times to ESPN the Magazine. He is a late-blooming (read: bad) golfer in the midst of a quest to break 80 for the first time—it's going poorly—and he lives in Durham, NC with his wife and two daughters. He now looks significantly older than the photo above, but is too cheap to spring for a new headshot.
