Member Spotlight: Paolo Uggetti, ESPN

Between scoping out USC football practices, ESPN features reporter and Broken Tee Society member Paolo Uggetti joined us last Wednesday on the Main Stage. Paolo counts himself among golf’s many Covid converts, but he’s jumped in with two feet, and tore himself away from the course long enough to cover both the men’s and women’s US Opens this summer. 

We chatted about his childhood in El Salvador, moving to America at age nine, using American sports to learn about his new home, his career at the Ringer, and much more.

Three beautiful curiosities appeared in two places on the server last week. Let’s dive in.

First, we have BTS Philly Vice Captain Sam Spuhler, aka @BirdiesNoBogeys, debuting the sensational restoration of his 2006 Scotty Cameron Circa 62. Got an old Scotty lying around? The experts at Scotty Cameron can work wonders:Scotty Cameron restoration

Perhaps even more fascinating, though, is the tale that @BartPair unfurled in the BTS #💎│classifieds.

To wit: Bart took first place in this year’s official Masters fantasy contest, and received a king’s ransom in prizes. He’s now looking to part with a few of them, for the right price. Interested? Bart is fielding offers at the links below:
