RETURN TO THE ROAD
Nothing clears up a case of the Mondays quite like a surprise TGJ event announcement! A few eagle-eyed BTS members have already snagged spots, but for everyone else, we’re psyched to announce that we’ll be hosting 60 TGJ subscribers at Tobacco Road on Wednesday, April 6th – at a special 20% discount.
Head here to secure your spot today.
DEMOCRACY AT WORK
Reminder: Regional Vice Captain nominations begin today. Head to your local BTS region’s channel to nominate yourself, or a fellow member, for this crucial role in our community. These VCs will bring leadership, structure, and some killer BTS meetups to your local region.
Nomination periods will work on a rolling basis – once a region has its first nominee, that region’s members will have a week to give the nod to other challengers.
See our Regional Vice Captains Proposal for further details.
TO A more SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Coming out of our first Vision & Values meeting, one thing was clear: the Broken Tee Society is committed to the idea of sustainability in golf.
With that in mind, we are excited to welcome Andrew Szunyog, Alex Baxter, and Andre Paul from Driving the Green to our Main Stage for a foundational chat on this crucial topic.
Join us Wednesday at 2 pm ET as we learn from the experts – and submit your questions via our Google form here.
RSVP here to listen live.
WANTED: FIVE-TOOL PLAYERS
The Golfer’s Journal is looking for a Senior Brand Marketing Manager. And while that role may sound straightforward, trust us – the more skills you’ve got in your arsenal, the more we want you on the team. Apply today, and help us build the world we want to live in.
A COURSE OF THEIR OWN
T-minus 13 days until our next 🤓│bts-book-club discussion. In honor of Black History Month, our bibliophiles are diving into John H. Kennedy’s A Course of Their Own: A History of African-American Golfers to learn more about some of golf’s greatest pioneers and their untold stories.
Join us on Sunday, February 20 to discuss the inspiring lives of Howard Wheeler, Lee Elder, Charlie Sifford, and many more greats whose contributions to our game are often overlooked.
RSVP here for the book club Zoom call.
- Leave tee shaming in 2021: The ⛳│golf-course-architecture channel had an animated discussion on how to get playing partners to play from the right tees, and how a course might ideally space tees to achieve the fairest possible setup.
- Shhhh: Hafe captured the rugged tranquility of Tom Fazio’s desert gem, Whisper Rock.
- BTS creations: Though only an infant by BTS standards, the 👷│diy channel has been pumping out inspiring content all week long. @DbShep’s backyard putting green, @Reinhard’s yardage book and cheat sheet, and a scorecard holder from @SethB have all reminded us that BTS is dripping with talent.
- Food, glorious food: Hungry? Then visit the 🍲│food channel at your own risk. Within, you’ll find a curated list of YouTube cooking shows, a half-baked (but still rising) plan to formulate a BTS recipe book, and of course, copious mouth-watering food photos.
- Thanks, Dad: @Pasco reminded us all that BTS is about so much more than golf when giving expectant father @jgallagher (congrats!) some parenting advice. Tl;dr: No one knows what they’re doing, but it keeps getting better.
