Chasing Daylight

The Weekly Walk is brought to you by the Good Walk Coffee Co.

Thank you for tuning into our show, The Weekly Walk. This week we’re doing our best to get back on a regular rundown like we have been doing in the past. However, I (Matt) decided to try and implement some tech this week with the rundown via my new iPad, and well, that didn’t work out so great.

Needless to say, the iPad is gonna get shelved until I can figure that out.

We started this week’s episode out with RAT FARTS, and after my admission of some pretty bad fo pas, I read a letter I wrote to my dear friend Neal “Rohrs” Rohrbach.

What Happened this past week:

Harris English was the big winner in Hawaii. He beat Wakeen Kneeman in a playoff on the first hole. And yes, we mentioned the fact he was chillin’ with Sergio versus getting ready for a playoff.

Take-Two on QUIZ TIME

We enjoyed the trivia last week, so I brought in some more to try and stump the guys. This week it was in regards to the current PGA Tour Season and the FedEx Cup standings.

The SNGA Winter Classic at Cascata

First off, congrats to Joe for finishing 6th place in the Net Division. He played great, and the BLACK CARD to the Cascata Pro Shop was well deserved. On the other hand, Matt had a nightmare of a first-round and thankfully righted the ship and turned in a somewhat respectable card for the final day.

What’s happening this week?

The PGA makes it’s 14th start of the season with a full-field event at the SONY OPEN.

The LPGA Tour, PGA Champions Tour, and the Korn Ferry Tour are all still until the Legends tee it up next week in Hawaii.

Look at this Instagram:

Three more solid choices for our favorite social media shoutout segment.

Viva Las Vegas

There was a mighty big news story that broke over the weekend! Breakthrough Golf Technology, also known as BGT, agreed to sponsor the VGN Tour putting series the KING OF THE GREEN!! This was very exciting for us, and even more thrilling is we will have Blair Philips, the man behind the madness of the Stability Golf Shafts on the show in our interview series. That will air next week!

LOCK CONTEST UPDATE

We have a new way we’re earning bonus points now. It’s too much to type so just listen in. Here are our picks for the SONY OPEN:

  • Matt – Russell Henley 33/1
  • Joe – Ryan Palmer 28/1
  • Jeremy – SungJae Im 16/1

Only Joe and Matt can get bonus points per the new rules because Jeremy’s pick doesn’t qualify.

Thanks, everyone, for tuning in! See you all next week!
