Bump&Run: 12/12/22

While the lucky few today are out enjoying the redesigned Lake Merced, the rest of us will have to make do with another Broken Tee Society roundup. This week: our first TGJ event of 2023, big news in the 3-Jack Fund, a workout routine to get you through the winter blues and a very special wedding cake. 

Bump&Run is the weekly recap of our members-only Discord server.

If you’ve participated in the year-long 3-Jack Fund, we have good news and bad news. The good: You get two weeks off at the end of the year? The bad: It’s time to pay the piper. 

Our year-end hangout and 50/50 raffle will take place this Thursday at 2:30 ET. Hop in as we celebrate a year’s worth of mediocre putting, draw the winner of our 50/50 raffle, and reveal which charity we’ll be supporting with this year’s funds.

RSVP for the raffle

In case you missed it, your member locker now contains $25 to Rothy’s. Stylish, washable and made from recycled material, Rothy’s are perfect for those post-round shoe changes, according to TGJ Publisher Brendon Thomas. Head to your member locker, pick up your code, and snag a pair today.

2023 events

You heard it here first: our first TGJ event will be a joint venture with our friends at Youth on Course, as we kick off 2023 on 17-Mile Drive. Join us on February 17 at Monterey’s Poppy Hills GC for a day of golf and fellowship, all to support a very worthy cause. Through just our member registration fees alone, this event will pay for 2,000 rounds of youth golf for YOC members.

Get a head start on the January gym warriors and join our kettlebell crew! A handful of members are only a few days into a grueling workout circuit, and guided by fellow member and HKC-certified kettlebell instructor Bill McGrath, it seems like they’re on the right track!
