Send us a Text Message.EPISODE 269Back with more golf talk this week as we are ONE WEEK AWAY from The Masters! So much great talk on this week's show!Matt went into detail about the new phone app he found called Hello Birdie. Not for the Soul Golfer; this app goes into great detail about your round. From preround planning to in-round caddy options, it's backed to the nines with features. https://www.hello-birdie.com/en/We were snubbed by either Shadow Creek, MGM Rewards, T-Mobile, the LPGA, or all of the above when our request for Media Credentials for this weekend's LPGA Tour event at the Stoic course was denied. Regardless, we're still big fans of the LPGA Tour, and we're looking forward to watching the tourney, if it's even on TV, and seeing the amazing Shadow Creek.https://www.lpga.com/tournaments/lpga-match-play-at-shadow-creek/overviewAtomic Golf vs Atomic GolfWe love the Vegas golf space, obviously, but we totally forgot to call out Atomic Golf Las Vegas for "stealing" the name Atomic Golf from our friend Joel Leopard of Atomic Golf. It will be interesting to see what happens, and we'll make sure to keep everyone informed as much as we can.https://www.atomicgolf.club/The Vegas Golf community lost a great man this past weekend. Ron, aka DBLR (Double R), was a presence in the community and will be missed. While we didn't get the opportunity to tee it up with Ron while he was with us, many of our friends and followers of the show did.

Matt, Joe, Jeremy, and Trey all played there on Sunday, and for Trey, it was his first time around the course.It was nice to hear Trey, who could be considered a course snob, have some nice things to say about The Legacy. It's a fun course with a great routing and some very challenging holes. Next up, we dove head first into Full Swing 2. While Matt, Jeremy, and Dan have yet to watch it, Joe has already finished the second season, and Trey is almost finished with the show. After that, we got into some Player's talk.

264: VGN Season kicked off, some Sun Day Red talk, Anthony Kim IS finally back and The Match talk
Send us a Text Message.Episode 264This is "The Sickly" episode. Matt's struggling with a head cold that's completely affected his ability to talk and to think straight, thanks to some high-quality sleep deprivation. But the show must go on! Even with a slow week in the golf space.The 2024 VGN Season kicked off, and the guys talked about what 3 out of 4 thought were terrible greens out at Las Vegas National. There were three new champions crowned on Sunday and one lucky member won his 2024 Membership!Since Tiger's Sun Day Red launch didn't get much talk last week, the guys chimed in on Tiger's new apparel line and guessed what they think the new shoes will be selling for.Anthony Kim. Yes, Anthony Kim is finally playing professional golf again, and it's with LIV Golf. He'll be making his debut this weekend, playing the remainder of the year as a wild card.The Match had yet another installment the other night, and it's trying to be better. More Golf this time around at a special place, The Park, in West Palm. Under the lights was a mistake as it didn't allow the golf course to be showcased the way it could have been. They're trying. There are no celebrities this time, Skins game format, but it's too long, and there's too much dead air time. Matt has a fix for it and if they would just listen! ----------------------------------------------------------------------We have a new partnership with The Golf Stop.

263: The Tiger Flop, The Spieth DQ and The VGN is a go!

263: The Tiger Flop, The Spieth DQ and The VGN is a go!
Send us a Text Message.Episode 263Well, that didn't go as planned. Tiger Woods was briefly back on the PGA Tour. It was his first appearance since Augusta last year, and it certainly didn't live up to the hype again. But can you blame Tiger? People get sick, even the greatest golfers on the planet. Not everyone is immune to the Double Double like we are!That should have led the show this week, but instead, we had some fun with TPC Sunrise, aka The Ditch, aka Desert Rose, aka Winterwood Golf Club, aka The Club at Sunrise. Joe and Dan played out there this past Sunday, and Joe did something we DO NOT RECOMMEND! After that, we got into some Tiger talk. Dan and Jeremy voiced their opinion of the Spieth DQ and some other musings from the Genisis.After that, it was the WHEEL OF NAMES' time for our very first VGN Raffle! Congrats to James Lewis for taking home the big prize!Matty G was back with the weekend FORECast for the VGN Tourney on Sunday, and then Matt and Joe dove into the latest craze that is Whatnot. DON'T GO THERE!!EPISODE LINKS:Brad Thompson Interview: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-chasing-daylight-podcast/id1464725572?i=1000625664393Vegas Golf Networkhttps://www.vegasgolfnetwork.com----------------------------------------------------------------------We have a new partnership with The Golf Stop.

262: LIV Golf in Vegas with our take, The Wasted Open was a mess and the GOAT Returns

262: LIV Golf in Vegas with our take, The Wasted Open was a mess and the GOAT Returns
Send us a Text Message.Episode 262Well, LIV Golf made its first-ever appearance in Sin City this past weekend, and we were on-site to check out the circus. That's not meant as a derogatory statement. It's a fun, loud, entertaining event, much like a circus.We all chimed in on what we liked, what we didn't like, and how it all compared to a PGA Tour event. I think you'll be surprised at what we had to say.After that discussion, we hopped on the bashing the Waste Management Open train as the shit show that is the WASTED OPEN held up to its name. Fights, Bunker Angels, Mud Slides, you know, just the norm. However, more and more players are starting to speak up and are having public outbursts on the fans in attendance,Lastly, Tiger returns this week at Riviera and debuted his Sun Day Red line ahead of the tournament. Of course, this will break the internet, as the posts of his new shoes, polos, gloves, and hoodies are going viral already.What happens with his golf game this week? It's anyone's guess, but one thing is guaranteed: we'll see him on Sunday wearing some Red as this is a limited-field, no-cut Signature event on the PGA Tour season. Unless he WD's???We have a new partnership with The Golf Stop. Be sure to stop by their new facility and check it out!
