After 18,189 miles, 13 events, three pop-ups and, somehow, zero speeding tickets, the TGJ Van is finally back home in California. While it’s fun to reminisce over great shots and favorite holes of the 2021 event season, what’s most meaningful is the chance to connect with so many Members from Mexico to Seattle to New England. Those connections were the impetus for our latest project: the online home for the Broken Tee Society, where Members have already begun sharing their golf experiences, joining us for exclusive live content and teeing it up in real life. We love it when the plan comes together.

Halloween Screening: Blades

Left-to-right sliders are scary, but have you seen Blades?! In this 1989 Jawsparody, golf and horror collide when a possessed lawn mower starts attacking members of a prestigious country club. It’s as outrageous as it sounds, which is exactly why TGJ Members can stream it for free on golfersjournal.com all week. So put the kids to bed, grab their candy bowl, and make sure your yard equipment is still where you left it…

The Profane Poetry of ‘Succession’

When it comes to profanity, no one is more creative (or inventive) than the Roy family from HBO’s Succession. So next time you hit one off the hosel, think, “What would Logan Roy say?” Or, actually, maybe don’t.
