Pardon the hiatus with the WUP Hangouts, which will be held more regularly once again going forward. Thanks to everyone for asking questions. Don’t forget, Luke Elvy and I will be bringing to you our show, “The Clubhouse,” tonight at 7pm EST. So get your questions and comments ready!
Well, that was a thrilling finish! Last night when I was writing my preview post for today, the headline I had type was: “One for the ages.” For some reason, I changed it, but turned out, this Masters really was one for the ages.
Thanks so much for tweeting your questions. FYI, we started answering them around the 22 minute mark. (continue reading…)
Pardon my rambling in this Hangout — I’m not used to doing these alone. It’ll be better going forward, I promise (and once I get more reps, which I’ve heard are important!). Thanks as always for watching and special shout-out to those who asked questions. You guys rock.
In case you missed it, you can watch a wrap-up of tidbits from the first round of the Shell Houston Open. I also answered some reader questions.
Here’s one for you guys: How often should I be doing these wrap-up/Hangouts? Every day? Every other day? Thoughts?
Oh, by the way, thanks to Johnny for suggesting the name “Wei-ing in” — I think that’s a winner!
First of all, sorry for posting this so late, but there’s no breaking news or anything, so I think we will all survive (at least I hope!). Secondly, I apologize for the crappy connection on my end. Not sure why it was so bad since I’ve done several Hangouts in my apartment and there’s never been an issue.
Good news is Renee Skidmore — who plays on the Symetra Tour — looks lovely, so it’s worth tuning in to watch her and learn about chasing her dream to play on the LPGA. Bonus: She likes to dance (you may remember her from our amusing attempt at the Harlem Shake), and was kind enough to put on a show for everyone. Enjoy!
Whoops, I forgot to post this last night. It’s hard to keep track of all the social media channels these days, but good news is I’m in the process of a massive site redesign to bring WUP into 2013. Woot!
Anyway, Luke Elvy and I broadcasted our weekly wrap-up of last week in golf, and of course, it was mostly Tiger, Tiger, Tiger. (I’m sure you’re all shocked!) Check it out above and since this is a weekly program, we’re trying to come up with a catchy name for the show. Suggestions? Send ‘em along! Thanks.
And of course, as always, we still have our training wheels and we’re open to constructive criticism and feedback. What would you like to see incorporated? Too long? Too informal? Keep doing what we’re doing? Let us know.
Australia’s top golf broadcaster Luke Elvy and I break down the Honda Classic. We discuss winner Michael Thompson, runner-up Geoff Ogilvy, rookie Luke Guthrie, along with Tiger Woods’ bizarre week and Rory McIlroy’s abrupt walk-off and mental/dental problems. Check it out!
I took the stage this evening in the interview room shortly after 54-hole co-leaders Michael Thompson and Luke Guthrie finished their press conferences. The lighting was quite bright, so I’m not sure why I kept looking up — perhaps I’m just drawn to shiny things?
Right when I ended the Hangout, I realized I forgot to mention one of the funny coincidences of the day. After David Lynn outplayed Tiger Woods in the third round, he was immediately whisked away by a drug-testing official. Lynn, a 39-year-old rookie on the PGA Tour (longtime European Tour player), said today was only the second time he’d ever been tested (and of course, the other time was in Europe), which I thought was interesting considering the discussion lately about the Tour’s
non-rigorous drug-testing policy and its lack of transparency.
Before I bid you a good night, in case anyone is interested, here are some quotes from Tiger following his third consecutive even-par 70. (continue reading…)
Thanks to Ricky Potts for inviting me as the featured guest in his “Friday Foursome” Google+ Hangout, along with the members of the community who joined to ask questions. Obviously this happened yesterday, so we inevitably talked about Rory McIlroy’s unceremonious exit and
mental dental issue, but we also talked LPGA and how I got started with living this crazy traveling circus life on the Tour. (continue reading…)
If you’re on the east coast and stayed up to join the #WUPHangout and asked questions, you rock. As for the rest of you, well…I don’t know why you’d have something better to do, like sleeping or hanging out with people in real life. Luckily, these Google+ live video podcast-like things record to YouTube, so people can check it out later.
Like I said, it was late and it’d been a pretty long day, and I was already kind of delirious at the start and it only went downhill — or more
embarrassing borderline absurd entertaining from there. I mean, at least for an Inside Golf chat.
