    I WAS PLEASED TO RECEIVE an email earlier this week from Steve Marantz, who covered the 1955 U.S. Open recently in Episode 17 of his Championship Stories podcast. (In Steve's words, it's a podcast about "famous, infamous and almost famous champions and their moments in history.")

    Episodes cover baseball, hockey and basketball, plus three on golf, including this latest one telling the story of Jack Fleck's titanic upset of Ben Hogan at the Olympic Club in June 1955.

    "I couldn't resist an episode about Jack Fleck," Steve said in his email. He used my book THE LONGEST SHOT as a primary source.

    You can listen above. It's relatively short.

    Journalist Steve Marantz is a former researcher/producer for ESPN and an author of four sports books, including his 2019 title, CITIZEN AKOY: Basketball and the Making of a South Sudanese American. He also writes for the Boston Globe.
