Just the obligatory nagging friendly reminder to SUBSCRIBE to the WUP pod — available just about anywhere you choose to digest your podcasts: iTunes, Google Play Music, Soundcloud, WUP Podcast Page, Libsyn Classic Feed, etc. Of course, you can always listen via the player below, as well. But I’m a big fan of subscribing to pods because they just pop up in your feed as soon as they’re released. 

Questions? As always, please feel free to contact me about anything and I’m always open to suggestions and constructive criticism (that’s the only way we evolve!): stephanie@weiunderpar.com. I may not answer immediately, but I try my best– as you might be able to imagine, I can’t keep up with the hundreds of emails I receive every day, and actually, I wish I could hire an intern just to help me with writing and replying to damn EMAILS. In the meantime, I promise to address your emails on the pod at the next earliest convenience. Deal? Cool. Thanks for your continued support!



I caught up a few weeks ago with Golf Digest social media coordinator, pro golfer and part-time comedian Hally Leadbetter. We talked about her recent move to NYC, her journey from junior golfer to pro golf to media, good/bad “golf parents”, managing (aka, lowering) expectations when she plays now, signing up for a stand-up comedy class, and her recent buddies trip in Scotland.

In short: Get-to-know Hally — she’s awesome, and a woman of many talents! 

This is part of an ongoing series on golf in Ireland/Scotland, or for the love of links golf.

Thanks to our friends over at Visit Scotland, I’ve very well-versed on golf in Scotland. I cringe at times when I see the itineraries that golfers and/or tour operators put together, so hit me up if you have any questions or would like some advice. (I mean, I’ve played more golf in the U.K. in the last four years than I have in America!)

Actually, perhaps I should do an episode specifically on planning a trip? Any interest? Let me know.
