Speaker 2:

[inaudible]

Speaker 3:

I don't think he should probably air this

Speaker 1:

There . Yeah, that's exactly the point. Whatever we say in here, we can cut whatever we want. I cut out a lot of ums and OHS and a lot of fumbling around. I do a ton of those. So we're hanging out here at Avondale golf club, hidden Idaho. I'm here with Billy Bob. Um, so the podcast , we're having a great time. It's a lot of fun. Uh, hope you guys are enjoying it. The , uh , two or three of you that are listening. Great feedback from you guys. Uh, no , there's more than two or three. Uh, um, my mom, my brother and my sister. I got a couple cousins that listens to , so let's push in 10 . So we're having a good time. Just kind of chatting away about golf, not talking politics, making sure we're focused on our golf game. Um, and just, just , uh, enjoying ourselves. So , uh, I really wanted to focus on getting golf pros on the show. Um, I wanted Dick yet , um , golf course employees in some episodes which we've done and then I wanted to make sure we got just some really cool golf guys. Cool golf dudes. And that's what we've got. Uh , for episode 10 of golf shots here, I got Billy Bob on , uh, known each other for years now. We played a lot of golf together. Thank you for joining me, Billy. Bob, how you doing Steve?

Speaker 3:

I'm doing great. Thanks for having me in this podcast. Maybe we can get it up to five listeners.

Speaker 1:

That's right. If you start listening,

Speaker 3:

I'll have Pam, Liz and Melanie six .

Speaker 1:

Just the people who were on the show with , listen, we get more of the 10. This is episode 10. That went really quick. Started this thing back in December. Um, it is September it's labor day today. What? September 6th , something like that. Yep . Uh , just got here at Avondale and Billy Bob was walking off the course. Um, I got to see you putting out on 18 out there. How'd you play today?

Speaker 3:

Uh, not so good, but yeah , there was no reason to play. So if I'm not here on any given day, they call 9 1 1.

Speaker 1:

It's uh , it's crazy. You are. Um, if you play out here at Avondale, you know, Billy, Bob , um, whenever I come out here , um, you're either, I'm either playing golf with you or I see you on the course or I see you on the driving range in that number one spot right there. You're always on that first

Speaker 3:

Where you don't have to walk too far to the bar.

Speaker 1:

That was the closest spot to the bar. Okay. So there is a reason behind all that absolute . All right, good . I was wondering, I'm like one way, likes that spot. I, you just liked to hit a fade out there and you didn't want to work at

Speaker 3:

Both Workday .

Speaker 1:

Well, I wanted to, I, you and I play golf together quite a few times. Um, but I don't really know your golf story. And I've always been curious, like when you started playing golf , uh , how you got into it. You're originally from Texas .

Speaker 3:

I'm from Texas. That's where the Billy Bob comes from and went to university of Texas , uh , Crenshaw and kite were a year behind me. Not that I was playing golf, you know, doing other stuff, but the , uh, got me interested in golf, but I really didn't start playing serious golf until like 1982. So I'm 35 years old. And first guy I run into is evil Knievel in a bar and spoken , and we didn't get along that great right off the bat. Uh, just didn't like each other things almost went south, but we'll go up the next day. He called me and said , Hey, I understand you're a golfer. I said, yep . And at that time I was an eight handicap, pretty good eight. And I didn't know what he was. And he calls me and said , well , I hear you're at 12. And one of my buddies didn't know what I was. He said, yeah, but it buys about a 12 . So give him a call in , uh , we played at hangman is what I'm about a 12 to as well. And I guess we play even. So yeah, we play for 500 match play. And if you closed out, you can press for half the bet. I said, that sounds fair. And as a fairly new golfer, but anyway, he counts on people choking when you're playing for 500. And I , you know, I'm probably not a choker. I , you know, I played a lot of pool, pretty good pool player. So learn how not to choke. And that's that , that's a good thing with evil because you're playing for 500 and then all at once you got a half a press going, playing for 750 bucks back in the eighties, that was a lot of dope. And we played every day. And so he beat me that first day, we both shot 77 at Haman and I paid him $500. Nobody was more than one up the whole time. So I gave him 500 bucks. Is that you lying son of a. You're no 12 handicap as a, wait a minute. I just paid you 500 bucks. If I'm, if I'm not a 12 and neither are you. And he said, well, maybe we're about even. So we'll just play even. And we adjust every day . I said that , that sounds good. So we played like that for 25 years. And at the end I was given him a stroke, a whole , he was just having, you know, physical, having a hard time, swinging, swinging the clubs. So then we just played for $300 and whoever would win, would buy. I'd buy him in crystal dinner. You know , if I won 300, we'd drop it down to 300 dinner would cost 500. And so you really didn't want to win, but I bought evil a lot of dinners . So , uh , it turned out. We ended up best friends. I was with him the night he died, put him to bed in Florida and then , uh , said goodbye, little buddy. And uh , still think about him almost every day . I didn't know

Speaker 4:

You were that close with him . That's

Speaker 3:

Amazed spent a lot of time in Vegas, playing cards, black Jack, everybody in Vegas loved evil . You know, either you loved him or you hated him, but he taught me a lot about golf. A lot about chipping Putin , uh, when he was injured, that's all he did was, you know , recovery. He'd go out on a practice, green putt chip until he recovered. So best chipper pit shot at me from 60 yards in, he was 75%. He had bet anybody, any amount of money from 60 in that he would get up and down. So he was up and down more than half the time. So it was a good bet for him.

Speaker 4:

I didn't, I'll be honest. I didn't know. He was a big golfer. I didn't even realize,

Speaker 3:

Oh, he's played $50,000 matches.

Speaker 4:

Yeah. And that, I mean, what he, the stuff he did was really hard on his body. That must have been hard to maintain a good golf game and crash like he did. And Brit , did he break just about every bone in his body at one time ?

Speaker 3:

Well, in Vegas they have a skeleton where he, he says he broke 57 bones, some of them twice. So I got to go with what he says, 57 57.

Speaker 4:

That's amazing. So that's a lot of chipping and putting, every time you break one,

Speaker 3:

You get pretty good, but no

Speaker 4:

One did, you know, it was even can , even when you walked into that bar,

Speaker 3:

You know, I was there first that he walked in and everybody crowds around him. And then, you know, I hear you. That's evil Knievel. Wow . Small little dude. Well, wasn't really small, but compared to me, yeah , small. And he just, he was just had a crowd around him. And, you know, he was , uh, telling a lot of stories and somehow he's sees me over a little bar called the bar. So it was only a tiny little place. And for some reason, he picked me out of the crowd and said, who's that Bose over there sitting by himself. So I listened to that for a second or two and went over to his bar stool. And I said, look, the one embarrassing verus you. I know who you are. I said, what you getting ready to fly off that bar stool? He said, F you. And I said, well, if you too , that's how we started out. Then he calls, he gets my number from , uh, Sally , a friend of mine there that owned the bar. And he said, who is that guy? And he said, that's Billy . Bob probably don't want to mess with them too much. Is it , what does he golf? And he said, yeah, I think he's about a 12. So that's where that 12. And that was an eight. That was a good eight or the , well, at least they got a four shot cushion, but I really didn't. Cause evil was probably a good six. Yeah. At that time. But it's like you said, he had a lot of injuries and there was, there was days later on as they got to know him, you know, he'd just wear out. You just couldn't hit a ball. And in a lot of the other guys playing we'd have Larry and flirty playing with him and they wouldn't leave him up, let him off the hook. But if he was hurting, like in, if I knew he was hurting, I said, look, let's just play tomorrow. Let's forget this one. Cause you know, he was beat up and to be able to swing a club, you know, he couldn't hit it 240 years. We were all long hitters. So we always meet him, play from the blue tees . But where he beat us, you know, we'd be 150 out, he'd be 200 out. He'd hit it up short. You need to get up and down and we'd tree tripod or something stupid. So he, he had the best short game of anybody I've ever known any pro or anybody. Yeah. So Nathan , I know

Speaker 4:

Quite a few times, I've never heard that story about how you can even leave .

Speaker 3:

I had too many other stories. I don't remember any of them.

Speaker 4:

That's amazing. So close. It's really cool. Yeah . It was good. Now I talk about it a lot on the podcast. Like golf means so much to me and some people get pretty deep about it, pretty philosophical. Um , some people just play it as a game. They like to just go out and hit the ball around. What are your thoughts? Like what does golf mean to you? Like for me, it's a lifestyle. It's just something I , I , I love with a passion and uh , I love the comradery of it. Um, what does , what does it mean to you?

Speaker 3:

You know, it's just, it's fun. Number one, but I'm very competitive. Uh, otherwise I wouldn't be, you know, I'm number two and Avondale cup again this year and they don't like me winning tournaments. That's why they arbitrarily just, you know, they'll make me a nine or a 10 and it's 74. I'm proud to be a 12. Yeah . That's okay with me 13. Now look at you and you hit the ball a mile. Jesus, you're a 13 . Okay. That's, that's dead wrong right there.

Speaker 4:

I didn't do many houses. That's my problem. I got to work on that short game.

Speaker 3:

Well you do. And that's, you know, I think I love hitting golf balls. It's not always about, I gotta be on the course. I just like hitting balls. And so I think if some of these younger pros spend as much time as I did working on, you know, not that I'm any good, but I'm just saying, I think about how bad I would be if I didn't work on it. And then some of these pros just don't put in , uh, you know, the hours and the miles that it really takes to get on that tour. That next level , uh, I caddy for Russell Grove in the Mayakoba qualifier in it. He's one of the best ball strikers I've ever seen and he's come so close. Uh, this'll be our fifth year playing the money qualifier in Mexico for Mayakoba in the pros. Just watch him on the driving range , uh, is such a good swing. And Corey Conners , we played with him , uh , first year, second year. That's just when he was just coming on tour. And that's where he kinda made, made the turn himself was Mayakoba. And he asked me after he said, Jesus , I should be on the tour. Yeah. I said, you know, we all believe that. Yeah. And I won . I mean , but you know how tough it is. I mean, it's you do Monday qualifiers? Uh, the good thing about my COVID, it was only 78 , uh, players plan . Half of them are from Latin America, other half from the United States. So I told Russell said , this is a place you can qualify. And we missed it by one shot one year or two shots , uh, and just tiny little mistakes , uh, making a nine on the easiest hole in the course on a par five gotten , uh , gotten a jungle. And , but Russell , he has the game. Yeah. We were pulling

Speaker 4:

For him. He was episode 34. I thought golf shots

Speaker 3:

Here. He made the , this weekend. So he's all right . He makes money doing this golf thing. Yeah.

Speaker 4:

Every once in a while, they'll post up like a slow motion video on social media somewhere and I will watch it. And I'm like that doesn't look that hard.

Speaker 3:

Like it's pretty easy. So I'm going

Speaker 4:

To go to the range. I'm going to do that. Like just what I'm seeing, right? Yeah, yeah. Yeah. He's got a great sway . Yeah . What kind of , uh, what courses, what are some of your favorite courses you've played? Have you done some child when you played a lot of different courses?

Speaker 3:

Yeah, I have. I mean, I don't know. I mean, I like the Woodlands courses in Houston. Uh, you know, I like playing high now. I like playing the high altitude courses in Colorado. Cause they go further

Speaker 4:

When downhill

Speaker 3:

Drive ,

Speaker 4:

Uh , I finally hit a drive over 300 yards this summer. It was at Bandon dunes and there was going to be a 30 mile an hour wind behind me and I must've hit a sprinkler head or something. No .

Speaker 3:

Okay . 15 Missy . I've never played Bandon dunes. All my buddies play it and I should. Yeah, I want to, but

Speaker 4:

Well that wind will get, yeah . I was standing there a couple times. Uh , 1 30, 1 40 out with a four iron in my hand. Like this is crazy. I mean, it's just how the wind's blowing. You can barely see

Speaker 3:

Favorite course though . I almost got to say Avondale only because if you can play, I believe this because I play every Pro-Am . I played 17 of them this year and I guess I'm beat as much money as anybody playing them this year. I had a nine to 13. I think I had six wins, a few seconds, a few thirds. But where you made, where we got extra money was our team always seemed to cash. I play with Taylor Porter hits it as far as Russell doesn't play as much, but now he'll wake up and shoot seven under and some of these programs . So we made a lot of money this year. And if you can play Avondale, you really have to move it both directions. You got to move it a little, right? A little left sometimes on a , on that front side, you got to play a cut shot and you get on the backside, you got to play a little drawer or a cut shot. So if you can play this course, keep it in bounds. Uh , you're probably going to be competitive in any course anywhere. Yeah.

Speaker 4:

Yeah. This of course is a challenge. I put the challenge . I play out at twin lakes. A and then the next course I played the most is , is Avondale out here. Totally. Right. If you need to play it all right to left and it goes left to right. You're in big trouble,

Speaker 3:

Big trouble. You're Obi wan Kenobi.

Speaker 4:

Like that looks like trouble lucky com and there's just so many good courses. Not enough time. Right? The summers go quick. Get some golf in. Yeah .

Speaker 3:

Well w w I L I love playing golf with my wife, Pam. She's a , uh, like a 30 handicap, but she loves golf every bit, as much as I do. So we enter as many couples tournaments as we can. So we just played at the Highlands. Uh, we did good there. And then now we've got , uh , next week we go to dominion, metals and Colville. Oh yeah. And that's a big term and meal . They'll get , uh , 80 teams there. So she's a good one to take and travel because he's a good, solid 30. Yeah.

Speaker 4:

I was going to ask you about her. Does I know you play golf with your wife a lot. I was just telling my wife also plays golf and I was just telling somebody the other day that there's nothing better. I mean, it's best to have a wife that plays golf. Um, it's just a blast, like to be able to go out and tee it up with your wife,

Speaker 3:

Couples that golf together, either stay together or get divorced. But if they, if they don't get divorced in the first year of golf together, probably gonna stay together forever.

Speaker 4:

No , my wife beat me consistently. I don't know if I'd like playing with her quite as much as I do. She does beat me every once in a while. She'll get me. I've seen her shoot like low 80 mile at Brooks , probably a low, like a 20 ish. And I've seen her shoot boom , mid eighties.

Speaker 3:

Yeah. That would be , that would be, be most of the time. But uh, yeah , Pam, you know, small little person doesn't hit it too far, but that doesn't make any difference. She has as much fun or more fun than anybody in golf. Every shot. She says, I've got it. I got it. She's chunking up. I got it. I know what I did. I got this one. Okay. I'll keep him . Yeah. Right. I know. I know what I did. I know what I did. Yeah, I know. Yeah.

Speaker 4:

I know. You know, I got this next one. That's the key. That's your key to go up ? Right? I can't remember. Arnold Palmer said, but it was something about the key to golf is to be overly positive. I mean, you have to be excessively positive about the game. You got to believe that the next shot's going to be

Speaker 3:

The , you got to have the shortest memory and when you get older, that's a good thing. Memory does get short. Yeah. So I don't remember that last batch.

Speaker 4:

We're all working on that to say here in the bar. Yeah . Stuff to do out there on the grass that we're sitting here drinking. I'm having my , uh, John daily , which I've been drinking this summer a lot. Uh, Arnold Palmer with , um, survive , getting there. What are you drinking over there

Speaker 3:

This time? When I'm here, they don't make, make my Jack Daniels the way I like it. So I just put Jack Daniel's lemonade with a lemon, but if I was at home and usually I wait until I get home, then I make my own little concoction of sugar cube, raw sugar cube in a shaker glass. I put a carp , Pani , vermouth, maybe a teaspoon on top of that. And I'll drop some bitters . Uh, I have three or four different kinds of bitters. So whichever I have an orange bitter, I like a lot. I put a by six drops. Then I put the squeeze in a quarter section of orange and then I'll put some , uh , Bordeaux. I think I've given you this.

Speaker 4:

We talked about it. The sugar cube was a garbage juice.

Speaker 3:

Yeah. I switched from a Gabi to , yeah. And there's nothing wrong with a Gavi . Yeah. That's pretty good stuff. But I switched to raw a Gavi cube or raw sugar cubes. I think Pam , he said it was better for me. Those

Speaker 4:

Bordeaux cherries are the key. Those are

Speaker 3:

Bordeaux . Jerry's are the key. Uh, they're not cheap . They're

Speaker 4:

Really,

Speaker 3:

Really good. Yeah. By, by gallon

Speaker 4:

At my house, this drink's called the Billy Bob. I say, who wants a Billy boy?

Speaker 3:

So you put in a little cherry juice that, and I go, we grew some mint , Kentucky mint , French spearmint. So I put a little bit of that in that shaker. Then I put a, but to two shots, two and a half shots of Jack and I shake it. And I've told Steve, I should get 200 times is why 200. I said, because it gets there's little ice crystals in it. And it tastes, it just gets , uh , the mint all beat up and the orange beat up. So it is just a nice frothy drink.

Speaker 4:

It's pretty good. You and I are both Jack Daniels

Speaker 3:

Drinkers. Yeah . I'm a Squire.

Speaker 4:

Yeah , that's fine . What's that again?

Speaker 3:

You Esquire, you actually beaded one square inch of property in Moore county, Tennessee. And they send you letters to saying he , uh , planning a hunt next next week. Just once your permission in case we have to cross your property. And a couple of weeks later, you might get dear Mr. Goin, while we were hunting over your property. We noticed some Bramble weed . You mind if we clear that out for you? So it doesn't overgrow the other properties I go well . Okay . That's fine . Yeah . That's real. That's pretty good. Yeah.

Speaker 4:

Now have you tried? Uh, I had some neat Betty vodka the other day. Have you tried that? That's from your neck of the woods, may nasi , Texas. They make different flavors. They have like a lemon one . They have a sweet tea. Okay .

Speaker 3:

Yeah, no, I don't do, I don't do flavor. Oh, I do plan . I don't do flavor. I flavor my own vodka. So just give me the vodka and I'll , uh, I have a diffuser, so I'll, I'll diffuse it to whatever flavor I want, but normally I'll stick with my Jack Jack Daniels. And then my dad was a Jack Daniels drinker until he had to quit. And that lasted longer than he did. So was your dad a golfer? No. He never tested club. We had , we were off in Houston. That's where we were football. Yeah. Football. And if you were a golfer, you were , uh , you know what, so, yeah , but I wish knowing what I know today, I wish I had bagged to football because I really think I could have been a good golfer. Yeah.

Speaker 4:

I think I could have done that . I wish I would've started this . My only regret I wish I would've started younger.

Speaker 3:

You hit first time I ever saw you hit the ball. I figured you were scratch . But then the middle game picked it kicked in

Speaker 4:

A second drive .

Speaker 3:

Then the third shot and stuff.

Speaker 4:

I'm from Michael Jordan, by the way. He's he said that to one point when he was, you know, he's a big golfer. And he said, his biggest regret is that he didn't start younger. And he goes, I think I could have made it on tour. Just kind of started me a little bit younger, but I got my kids playing golf already.

Speaker 3:

You know ? So when you think about all these pro guys, Michael Jordan, and even shack and football players, when you get done, where they're , where they're sport pro sport, they, they need that evil Knievel. For instance, they need that adrenaline rush. Nothing gives it to them except golf. That's the game. It just kicks them in the butt and they can't conquer it. It's too tough. And that's , I believe that's why all these pro players, when they get done with football, baseball, golf, whatever, they get into golf. Yeah.

Speaker 4:

It's, there's no excuses out there. Uh , uh, I think it was the, of , you know , Don Cheadle. He's an actor. He's a big golfer.

Speaker 3:

He is big and supportive .

Speaker 4:

Yeah. He's a good player too. I , to say he's a single digit handicap. And I heard him say, one time when you swing a club, what happens next is the truth what's supposed to happen, happens. And that's, what's hard about golf is that's what you're getting . You're getting what you're supposed to get. I mean, yeah. Sometimes you're going to get a bad bounce or something, but the ball is going to come off of your club the way it's supposed to come off, whether it's good or bad, but it's a lot of these other sports you can make . There's excuses all over the place, blame it on your teammates. You can blame it on

Speaker 3:

Whatever, but it's all you.

Speaker 4:

Yeah. Then they say PGA tour players. You hear him talk about how lonely golf is. You know, it's like, you hit a real bad shot. You're all by yourself

Speaker 3:

On that one . You know? But I think, I mean, Pam, my little wife, she gets nervous and she chokes. So , uh , number one , uh, here at Avondale, you got to hit it over a lake and she'll hit it about two times, get it in front of the lake. Then she got to hit it a hundred yards, 20 times out of 20. She'll hit it in the lake from, and she only has to hit it. 90 yards. It's like that lake has a magnet anywhere else on it on this course should be over it. But she never, it's just, and that's what we call a choke. And that's all it is. You know what I mean? And somebody needs to teach and pros do this when they have to hit half to hit a shot. And after you hit a cut high cut or whatever, and they double cross and he hit a over the top pool, that's a choke. Yeah. That's all it is. And there are two quick, it's just sometimes , I mean some little, but it's a tiny little Twitch thing. And somebody needs to teach everybody how not to choke because we all do it. That would take that lesson from the first, first guy who could give me that class.

Speaker 4:

I got to play golf in college, out at the fairways out the cheap way out there. You ever played that card? It's just a wide windy ,

Speaker 3:

Wide open, but there's some tough little holes.

Speaker 4:

Yeah. There's some, yeah, it's got some character to it, but there was a bench , um, just left of the second tee box and it turned into a joke with my friends. I hit that bench. Every time we got up there and one day we played 36 and we're going around again. And I was playing really well. And they were like, oh, here comes Steve's bench first round. And I hit it the second round off to the left. I would top it. I don't know . It's such a mental

Speaker 3:

Is so mental

Speaker 4:

Bobby Jones called it. Right. Is it golf played on a six inch course space between your ears? He must have a small head though. Cause I got

Speaker 3:

Well , might you , you don't mind is huge to be like eight inch . Yeah, I got hit by a , I don't think I told you this, but it's the next last, Pro-Am it ? Wanda mirror. I'm a playing with my team. There's four of us. And so he got me and joy in my cart. He just ordered a drink. We had three holes to go. We're on number seven Windermere. And that was in the middle of the fairway, par five. And I just took my little warm up thing and bringing her back from a second shot, little fare with him , just hitting a rescue club, laying up to about 90 yards, what I'm thinking. And I see in the corner of my eye bumper coming into my knee and it just for a split second , uh it's like my mind just took a picture of it. And then it knocked me out. Uh, what it was was my partners were looking at some houses up on the bluff at Windermere on number seven, beautiful homes. And I stopped and look at them for a second myself. But these guys are rolling down a fair fairway by 14 miles an hour. Never saw me. He ran right into me. And fortunately my cart was parked maybe a couple of feet in front of me. So hit me first and knocked me out. And I'm laying on the ground. I was only out for about 10 seconds. No big deal. I've been hit harder. But um , so I'm laying there and I see , and I'm hearing him saying , Billy Bob, Billy, Bob, you all right. And I went, wow. I better check that cart for damage. Cause hit that big hit of mine knocked me out. But it did kind of mess up my knee a little bit. Some, oh,

Speaker 4:

You were out cold though.

Speaker 3:

10 seconds max. Yeah . And we had to finish the next. We were probably, we win most. We, we, we come into money on every team Pro-Am and we were probably leading that Pro-Am with three shots to go. It had to be the funniest thing in the world because the guys behind us that they weren't laughing at the time they thought I was hurt. Pretty good, but it wiped out. Her whole team joy got knocked out of my cart. Taylor fell out of our cart, hurt his neck. And then , uh , Ryan hits the steering wheel. We barely finished. So last three, we were all three, all four of us limping around trying to finish the line mirrors pro .

Speaker 4:

Yeah. You can just walk off.

Speaker 3:

We went ahead . That was pretty good. Yeah. Well it was, but it's a good thing. Yeah. Funny now I'm sorta ,

Speaker 4:

We can laugh about it now. Right? How many, hold on . Have you had you're one of those galleries.

Speaker 3:

Oh yeah. Well, I didn't have that many till let's see. Last year I had two on 14 and one on number eight. So I had three last year number eight, 200 and was 205 yards. Yeah.

Speaker 4:

Oh , it's brutal. I remember that everybody was with Paul when? Yeah.

Speaker 3:

They had to COVID texted the cup in there and uh, it was good. So I've only had, I've had five

Speaker 4:

From two

Speaker 3:

To five. I went from two to have , I had one on number eight in Mankato and number 12 in Avondale, then two on 14 and went on eight lines . That was, oh, he didn't manage .

Speaker 4:

So that's a good one.

Speaker 3:

That's a tough shot hundred . It was 179 yards

Speaker 4:

Left, like short left one .

Speaker 3:

No, I'm trying to picture it . That's not it . No , no water. I played there. It's an uphill par five. So you can actually see it. You can see the hole is actually a nice shot. Yeah. And then , uh , 14 and Avondale . You can't see them and then you really couldn't tell them number eight. Cause I can't see that far. Oh yeah. But we got up there. It was laying on the little phone right in the cup. What was the yard? Is that day? It was 2 0 5

Speaker 4:

Hybrid on there. That's it ? That's

Speaker 3:

A good, that's a good one. That's a good one. Yeah . That's the one you want.

Speaker 4:

And when they're starting to tire , there's a car on that. Cause it's like, they're not many one .

Speaker 3:

No. And then the way we played in that , uh, the member guests at Hayden and there was a guy there on number 17, they were giving away a Buick $50,000 SUV. And uh, I'm not gonna say his name. I'll say his first name, Josh. Uh, but he , uh, he scolded hit it a low, right? Almost like a shank went in a hole and he won a $50,000 car. Yeah. And then in the same, not the same guy, another, another dude on number that number four , the par three over the lake. He skulls, it makes four hops cross. The lake jumps onto the bank through the sand trap, goes in to be at about 500 for the skin . Wow .

Speaker 4:

I ever had was like that. I , uh, I far for slicing into the trees, hit it. I was at Indian canyon or in Spokane skull it and then I never left the ground. Went through a bunker, jumped

Speaker 3:

Out, wind . Doesn't matter.

Speaker 4:

Now the ball goes through the hoop .

Speaker 3:

No, they don't draw pictures. They say

Speaker 4:

All ends up on the scorecard. It looks what's that right there.

Speaker 3:

Should we make another drink before we ,

Speaker 4:

Yeah, we should get, we should definitely want to make the drink

Speaker 3:

And we probably ought to do that. How long do these little podcasts go? I think we're good.

Speaker 4:

It'd be done. Yeah. All right . Awesome. I've been genuinely looking forward to this for quite a while . I've been thinking about it. Uh, I was in a wedding not too long ago that you officiated was amazing. I mean, it was great.

Speaker 3:

Speaker 4:

Yeah , this is a clean, this is the PG. Maybe we'll do another podcast. That's like R rated . We can do

Speaker 3:

That.
