"I never win anything like this"
These are the words of Josh Proffitt, BTS member from outside Philadelphia, after returning from a whirlwind trip to Miami to join three other members in the Puma x Palm Tree Crew Invitational.
Rickie Fowler, Kyle Berkshire, KYGO, and Bryson DeChambeau all played second fiddle to Dan, Kyle, Michael, and Josh (below, L-R), the four community members who won free entrance into the event courtesy of TGJ.
The lesson here, courtesy of Michael Scott (and Wayne Gretzky): You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.
bts meetup: pine dunes
Houston BTS member Dale Hosack has a few open spots on Saturday, 4/2 for a 20-person Broken Tee Society meetup at Pine Dunes GC in Frankston, TX – a golf course that Shane Bacon has called “the best hidden gem in America.”
Tee times begin at 11 AM, and rumor has it that some BTS swag will be making its way to the wilds of Texas direct from TGJ HQ in San Clemente.
DM @DaleHosack on Discord for more info, and we hope to see you out there!
a capital affair
We opened our events season last Saturday at Tallahassee’s Capital City Country Club, and were delighted to welcome dozens of BTS members out to The House that Jay Revell Built ®.
Between a few rain showers, golfers got their fill of this Tillinghast rollercoaster that has hosted everyone from King Edward to Jeb Bush. Trusty sidekick Leon made his presence known, and we rolled out late in the evening knowing that we had chosen the perfect spot for TGJ’s first Florida outing.

win a tgj scotty cameron
Not much else needs to be said. Scotty Cameron made 12 custom TGJ-branded putters. The only way to get your hands on one is to refer a friend to TGJ in March and hope your name gets picked.
So far, we’ve had 70 referrals this month. 1 in 70 for a 1-of-12 putter? We like those odds. You’ve got three days to get in the game.
prime (time) meridian
For the past few weeks, members of our BTS Book Club have been working through Cormac McCarthy’s seminal Blood Meridian. Though its themes, language, and subject matter leave a lot of topics open for interpretation, we’ve settled on one thing: our Book Club discussion will take place on Sunday, April 24th at 8 PM ET.
Looking to join the Book Club? DM @RobbieVogel on Discord.
brie's got the goods
Gloves, hoodies, bags, and more! The merch channel was on fire last week, with TGJ merch maven Brie dropping new goods on a daily basis. Get in there and grab your fill of the Broken Tee before it’s too late.
