Swing, Walk, Repeat with Jay Revell

Much like his writing, a conversation with Jay Revell flows with an easy and unhurried grace. Jay is a proud BTS member, former president and current historian of Capital City CC, and all-around golf tragic, so we were more than happy to have him join us for a hangout last Tuesday. Dive in for some insights on Jay’s latest book Swing, Walk, Repeat, as well as an unparalleled and incredibly compelling history lesson on his home club, the host of our first-ever TGJ event in Florida on March 19.

Rob Collins: Golf Course Architecture 101

Rob Collins sits down with us for an hourlong dive into the world of golf course architecture. Part of our Foundations series, Rob's chat covers a range of GCA topics that any aspiring architecture junkie will enjoy. Of course, it wouldn't be a Rob Collins interview without some behind-the-scenes construction stories, a deep dive on his Landmand project, and a few well-delivered expletives.

Vision & Values Kickoff Meeting

A recording of the Broken Tee Society's initial Vision and Values meeting, in which we talk about the definition and purpose of the BTS, touch on the benefits that the community has offered so far, and define a few goals to reach for in the short term. Meeting notes for this talk are also available in the #announcements and #foundations channels on our Discord server.

Making No. 18: Bandon and Boynton with Ryan Book

TGJ Contributor Ryan Book joins Travis Hill and Tom Coyne to break down his latest article in No. 18, "A Bandon Surprise, Just for Ewes." A sharp reporter with a dry wit, Ryan dishes on discovering Sandra Boynton's role in Bandon Dunes and his talks with the artist. Plus, Travis and Tom chime in with behind-the-scenes gold from the editing and podcasting realms.

Behind the Scenes of No. 18

Your backstage pass to the making of TGJ No. 18. Travis Hill, Tom Coyne, Christian Hafer, and assorted other characters dive into the stories behind the stories, including a narrowly avoided cover debacle, an afternoon at a deserted PV, and more from the wild life of Peter Beames. Plus: White Bear, Billy Collins, and some "concept album" thoughts that didn't make the cut.

Swinging into the New Year with Tom Johnson

PGA Tour pro, Olympic Club teaching professional, and Broken Tee Society member Tom Johnson joins us for a hangout focused on game improvement in the new year. We talk short game, stretching, and the best ways to stay present during a round. Plus - Tom offers a fresh dose of #perspective when discussing the recent birth of his first child and the impact of fatherhood on one's life and golf game.

Brett Cyrgalis: Home for the Holidays Book Club

Sportswriter and author Brett Cyrgalis joins the Broken Tee Society to discuss his book Golf's Holy War, the first selection in our BTS monthly book club. We go behind the scenes, discussing his time spent with Michael Murphy, his take on whether a "war" really exists, and why Hogan's Five Lessons is one of the worst instruction manuals ever written.

TGJ Debrief: Rory, Collin, the Grove, and the Summit

Join Christian Hafer and Casey Bannon as they debrief on a whirlwind week, starting with a visit to MJ's Grove XXIII with Rory McIlroy, and ending with a day with reigning Open Champion Collin Morikawa at The Summit Club in Vegas.

Member Spotlight: Brynn Walker

Symetra Tour player, author, Broken Tee Society member. Brynn Walker joins Tom Coyne for a chat about her twin passions of golf and writing, the grind of fighting for a spot on the LPGA Tour, and lessons she learned from Lexi Thompson. 

Coffee with Kyle Porter

Kyle Porter from CBS Sports joins the Broken Tee Society, fresh off the completion of Normal Sport, his compendium of the insanity of the 2021 PGA Tour season. We chat with Kyle about turning a passion into a career, Golf Twitter, parenting, and the fact that CT Pan and Rory Sabbatini shot a best-ball 57 at the Olympics.

A Course Called America: Live from Charleston

A BTS exclusive, recorded in front of a live audience at the Charleston Music Hall! In this delightfully winding conversation, Tom Coyne and The Fried Egg’s Andy Johnson travel from sea to shining sea, discussing Florida golf cart parades, Alaskan haircuts, and Tom’s relationship with his dad, among other things. They also talk some golf.

Member Spotlight: Eastside Golf

Olajuwon Ajananku and Earl Cooper from Eastside Golf join us to talk about their rise from a logo on a t-shirt to perhaps the most highly touted brand in the game today. In this wide-ranging chat, we cover their careers both in and out of golf, their famed Jordan collab, and what's next for Eastside.
