Episode 36 - "Welcome to Houston"
In this episode of TeeBox Chatter: The Golf Podcast I welcome the GM of The Club at Carlton Woods. Mr. Steve Salzman.
This episode was recorded shortly after the announcement was made that the LPGA Tour's first Major Championship of the year was being moved from Rancho Mirage, California (Mission Hills) to Houston, Texas (The Club at Carlton Woods). Mr. Salzman and I discuss the move, what it means for the LPGA, the impact of the move for residents and the employees of Chevron, and of course The Club at Carlton Woods.

"Live-streaming Golf With GolfZoogle"
What is a GolfZoogle? Who is GolfZoogle?
Welcome to this episode of "TeeBox Chatter: The Golf Podcast" as I welcome Denis Condie and Justin Gauthier to "The TeeBox". I learned about this golf technology service while covering a professional golf tournament (Great Lakes Tour) for the podcast. Little did I realize that a week later I would be providing golf commentary for them.
In fact, GolfZoogle has provided live streams for scores of golf tournaments, including Fenergic Coupe Canada. One of Canada's most prestigious professional events which takes place in Victoriaville. All of the important questions are asked and answered. Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How. This was a fun episode to record.
Episode #34 - "Be a Loudmouth"
Next on the tee on the TeeBox Chatter Golf Podcast, I welcome the Owner of Loudmouth, Andrew Seibert.
A misconception is cleared up. Loudmouth is not just for golfers. If you're wondering where Loudmouth went listen in as Andrew takes us through the process of renewing a brand. In January, Loudmouth attended the 2023 PGA Show and what they took away from it. We learn about the President and CEO's background in golf and you may not know it but, you might be a "Loudmouth".
Thanks for joining us.
Episode 33 - "The Road to the PGA TOUR"
In this episode of the TeeBox Chatter Golf Podcast, I welcome PGA TOUR Canada players Jeffrey Kang, Eric Lilleboe, Thomas Walsh, and Jake Knapp. Recorded during the 2022 Fortinet Cup Championship in Kitchener, ON at Deer Ridge Golf Club on moving day. About the players.
Jeffrey Kang - Now 31, Jeffrey turned professional in 2014. Jeffrey played collegiate golf at the University of Southern California. Jeffrey Monday Qualified for the 2022 WM Phoenix Open.

The High Point, NC native attended school at the University of Virginia where he played collegiate golf. In 2023, Thomas finds himself back on the Korn Ferry Tour where he's made 3 of 4 cuts.
Jake Knapp - The 28 year old former UCLA Bruin is off to a nice start in 2023 where he has status on Korn Ferry Tour. A native of Newport Beach, California Jake hasn't missed a cut thus far on tour where he currently sits in 21st on the points list.

Burke and I talk about photography and the gem along California's Pacific Coast. With 25 years of caddying under his white coveralls, comes a wealth of stories. Armed with a quick wit and plenty of current events in the news he uses them to come up with one-line zingers. So, "Introducing Cutter: America's Unfiltered Caddie" was created.

Everybody has cross-hairs on their back. Millennials, Republicans, Democrats, Celebrities, White, Black, Gay, or Straight. It makes no different to "Cutter". Believe me when I say that you'll laugh and... you'll cringe. (Note: It is not intended for those under 18).

In this town lies a golfer's "Mecca of Sorts" called Fore Golfer's Only. A place where you can find almost anything that your heart desires. Old clubs, new clubs, and everything in between.

In this episode recorded on location at Niagara Golf and Country Club, Douger and I discuss the aftermath of the 150th Open Championship. Congratulations to Australia's Cameron Smith. An excellent Champion Golfer of the Year and a Major victory that you could feel that was coming. Did Rory McIlroy play to lose? Hey, what was with the disrespect shown to Smith by golf media?

Also, the LPGA. The women of the LPGA played their team event the DOW Great Lakes Classic. Kupcho and Salas win. It's another major week as the LPGA, LET et al play the Amundi Evian Championship in France.
The Southern Ontario Open. We provided commentary for GolfZoogle during a live-stream on YouTube. The Great Lakes Tour's flagship event played in Port Dover, Ontario (Port Dover Golf Club) was entertaining and you couldn't have asked for a better finish. A 3-man playoff and an eagle to beat birdies on the first playoff hole (won by Michael Blair). Many of those played have some sort of status on PGA TOUR Canada.

Tour Edge Exotics M.I.A. from Golf Town?
Hey Golf Avenue. Please define "pro-line".
Testing has begun of Golf Pride CPx grips.
Ball Marks and Divots. Why don't people fix ball marks? We try to shed a light on the subject with our opinions. Divots. Ground under repair (Yay or Nay). Free drops?

Pre-round range sessions. How many golf balls do you need?

Leading off we discuss some equipment that came in for testing. Tanto Golf divot repair tools. Made in the USA and these divot repair tools are worth every penny. Doug love the MINI and I love the bigger RP2 divot repair tool. While we're at it, fix your ball marks and why is it that golfers don't fix ball marks?
Breakthrough Golf Technology. The Stability Tour Fire putter shaft that I received has made a huge difference in my first two rounds with it. Shout out to the Tour Edge Golf Exotics Wingman 01 putter... That we both play.
The PGA Championship. Justin Thomas wins with a huge assist from his caddie Jim "Bones" Mackay. Mito Pereira's decision was it the right play on 18? Mito made a lot of fans with his play and demeanour at Southern Hills.
Rory, major underachiever? He stormed off without a post-round interview, what gives?
The PGA Championship playoff and Will Zalatoris a major contender.
By the way, Southern Hills was a fantastic venue and this was by far the best PGA Championship that I viewed. Single digit under par scoring. It felt like a major.
Southern Hills' Superintendent was a star along with the venue itself.
Is it the end of the Tiger era? Will he win another Major?
Canadians in the U.S. Open.
Grace Kim a rookie on the Epson Tour claims her first professional victory at the IOA Classic where it was "AussieMania".

From a time when the games were about strategy and not-so much about graphics. We discuss his role in developing or in assisting with the development of one of the golf simulator industry's leaders AboutGolf.
We also talk about his latest project (Clarity Golf) and where it's heading. Many thanks to Mary Beth Lacy from golf public relations firm Mary Beth Lacy Inc for arranging this interview with her client.
Episode 13 - "It's Coffee Time"
Nothing beats great service. Great service like that of the staff at Niagara National Golf and Country Club. Join my Co-Host Doug and I over a coffee or two.
Recorded on location at Niagara National Golf and Country Club in Stevensville, Ontario. In this episode we discuss Doug's week in golf and his start and where to improve. The NCAA Regional's in Women's Golf and teams like the Mississippi State Bulldogs. A team that's led by the husband (Charlie Ewing) of LPGA Tour player Ally Ewing.
With the NCAA Regional's is there a way to cover those events to give college golf more exposure. Are the logistics of doing such too much to handle? Could they follow in the footsteps of the Epson Tour with live streaming on the likes of Twitter or YouTube. NCAA sports... Do you like it more than professional sports.
A prize purse increase on the LPGA Tour at their Amundi Evian Championship. Minjee Lee wins the Cognizant Founder's Cup at New Jersey's Upper Montclair Country Club.

Doug goes all "Brandel Chamblee" about Jon Rahm. Major performers in Major Championships. And yes, Tiger Woods is a part of the conversation.

Bryson DeChambeau's stock and where his swing could lead him. We talk about the inventor of the Core Builder Pro (Jim Porterfield). The LIV/PGA TOUR drama and guys who have had underachieving careers. Doug has an issue with Steve Stricker's hat.

Including some very affordable rates that you may not expect.

Okay, It's Not an Episode. (TeeBox Chatter Golf Song)
For a few months now, I've been working on a golf-related song. Figuring out the right chords, rhythm, and matching them up with lyrics has been tricky. Even trickier when you can't sing. The song and music, I have completely written. This is an excerpt that I recorded this afternoon while watching the Gainbridge LPGA.
The completed song will be posted. I am hoping to add drums or percussion and dare I say it bass. #lpga #golf #golfsong #teeboxchatter
