    Tas-Tee talks w Texas Golf Insider

    Tas-Tee talks w Texas Golf Insider

    Throughout the past several years it has been a goal of mine to give back to the game that has given me so much. I’ve volunteered at dozens of golf events, including PGA, LPGA, Senior PGA and Korn Ferry Tournaments but my biggest “reward” from volunteering comes from the one I do every week at Texas Rangers Golf Club in Arlington, Texas.  For over a year now I’ve volunteered once or twice a week at my local, public, but MLB-owned golf course. It is the ONLY MLB owned golf course in the country, so there lol...

    It is there that I stumble upon a most interesting array of the very best golf people that DFW has to offer. One of these people, Joe, gave me an email address of a guy that runs Texas Golf Insider, a magazine & podcast that focuses on golf here in Texas. After emailing Mike Ratchman of Texas Golf Insider, I sent him some samples and blew him away, lol.

    He scheduled me for the Live June 9th Podcast at 7pm. Here’s some of the clips from the show..

    The Memorial at Jack's Place

    The Memorial at Jack's Place

    There are few places that showcase golf to the level of Muirfield Village in Dublin Ohio.  Jack's Place hosts the PGA Tour's Memorial Golf Tournament every year and because Jack is my dad's absolute favorite, I had to take him so we could see that place for ourselves.  And it did NOT disappoint.

    We entered the grounds midweek via hole 15 green entrance.  Military vets were free with an ID and my dad was 26 years in the US Air Force so he did not hesitate to whip out his credentials and get us on the course.  Immediately the undulation of the rolling terrain took me by surprise, then I saw the fairways.  Tight and fairly compact, the fairways were nuanced and a lot of tee shots were blind.  The greens was strategically angled with bunkers, water or OB surrounded every single one of them.  Both the fairways and the greens hardened severely throughout week of play and Oh, and it's LONG, almost 7600 yards long!Tas-Tee at Memorial Golf Tournament

    My dad hit his bucket list of shaking the hands of some of his childhood favorites; Ben Crenshaw and Jack Nicklaus.  Truly a special venue that showed us some truly special moments.  I saw David Lingmerth, who won at Memorial in 2015 and whom we had the great Sawgrass 17 moment.  The guy is so cool and to watch him play this giant course so well was really great, Ling made the cut!Dad meets Ben Crenshaw

     

    Dad and I were out of there by the weekend but it absolutely belonged to Billy Horschel.  The man shot 65 on Saturday when par would've been great and he didn't take his foot off the gas until his final putt on 18 on Sunday.  He hit fairway after fairway and managed to give himself looks on Saturday that others just weren't getting and he was making the putts!  The entire week his putting pace was spot on and once he started dialing in the lines, he didn't really miss until Sunday.  Even when it looked like Aaron Wise was going to step one step closer to the lead, Billy hit a 52ft putt on 15 for eagle and that was that.  He stayed focused throughout his round but cracked a little once on the green with his kids yelling "daddy won" in the background.

    What a moment.

    Byron Nelson ‘22

    Byron Nelson ‘22

    This years AT&T Byron Nelson event at Craig Ranch was truly special for us this year. We were able to start conversations with the Salesmanship Club of Dallas to be a legit sponsor of this event next year. It would be our crowning achievement. Lemme tell ya how it went down.

    I’ve worked as a volunteer for a few years at this event so it was an easy decision for me to renew my application for this year’s event. In the middle of a thankfully busy part of our year, I didn’t have time to look at my schedule for the Byron until a couple weeks prior to the event. And when I did, my schedule was empty.. odd

    I emailed the Dept head and let her know I wasn’t scheduled for any shifts. She stated that it was bc last year I was seen promoting Tas-Tees by wearing the hat. I was on tee boxes and behind the ropes all week w a logo that wasn’t a sponsor at the event. I quickly turned the correspondence to how we can become legit sponsors for the Byron & that I wouldn’t wear my Tas-Tee hat (now available online haha) while on duty as a volunteer. Fair enough… but we’re gon be ALL UP in that place next year! 

    As it was I spent my volunteer time tending ropes between the practice green & driving range, which proved to be a good spot. I watched Alex Noren for over half an hour make this “feel vs real” move that I had to incorporate into my preshot mess, lol. 

    Wednesday was the better day to chat with the guys obviously as Thursday started their tournament play. I got to walk around (after my shift 😉) and I watched Hideki for a while before catching up with Keith Mitchell.
