"Rory's Bogey Hoagie"
On this week's episode of the "TeeBox Chatter Golf Podcast" my Co-Host Doug Lauder and I discuss several topics. 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". A heated debate. Doug says Symetra Tour and I say Epson Tour. It's Epson. Bank of Hope LPGA Match Play is this week on the LPGA Tour. We talk about eliminations and a second heated debate about "double knockout". Do you enjoy watching Match Play? We talk golf balls as Doug is in a frantic search for the right ball. We talk about the Wilson Staff DUO Professional and a little story about OnCore Golf. Doug recaps the NCAA Men's Golf Regionals.

"The Clarity of Golf Simulators"
In this episode of the TeeBox Chatter Golf Podcast I welcome Bill Bales to the first teebox.

We also talk about his latest project (Clarity Golf) and where it's heading.

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. Whipping out things onto the table. Like the, to be reviewed, Tanto Golf Divot Repair Tool. We talk other equipment like Breakthrough Golf Technology's Stability Tour Fire putter shaft. A shout-out to Power Golf (clubfitter) and Niagara Golf and Batting Cages. My disappointment with Golf Town. More equipment talk later on in the episode as I talk about Cobra Golf's product range after attending a Fitting Day put on by Niagara Golf Warehouse. What's a Sooner? Tulsa has Hurricanes. Either way, the PGA TOUR is in Oklahoma and this week is the PGA Championship. We list our picks. There might be flag waving involved. Doug goes all "Brandel Chamblee" about Jon Rahm. Major performers in Major Championships. And yes, Tiger Woods is a part of the conversation. Yes Greg Norman, everybody does make mistakes. I met him once and I talk about that disappointment. We talk about Rickie Fowler and the possibility of him joining the Premier Golf League.

The potential bloodbath that a women's golf version of The President's Cup would create.

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. Dougie wants my Edison Golf Forged Wedges.

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
