Fishers Island

Welcome to the first part of a very special series of episodes with friend of the pod and regular guest Patrick Koenig, who chatted with me about his solo and buddies trips to Ireland and Scotland this summer. When we recorded the pod, I mentioned he needed to come out to the NYC area and I claimed I could arrange tee times at Fishers Island, National Golf Links of America and Shinnecock.

Well, I lied and failed. I was only successful with NGLA (October 10) and Fishers Island (October 11), but we did get a bonus nine holes into the mix at Hay Harbor, the “other,” arguably the more exclusive club on FI, so we were told. Well, I’m not sure if Patrick has forgiven me yet, but hopefully he will soon.

This is going to be sweet and short — and my apologies, I’ll update later tonight or tomorrow (more likely the latter). Turns out golf is an *extremely* grueling sport to play and cover. All that walking up-and-down hills! Or perhaps I’m an idiot who is out of shape? I was somewhat reluctant in being convinced to go to the ER to be treated for dehydration and heat exhaustion (and run some tests just to be safe, so thanks to the colleagues who looked out for me). Good news is I feel much better after they gave me oxygen and an IV of fluids, etc.

Michael Weaver: This kid is good

This is the first Walker Cup I’ve ever covered or attended, but it’s not the first time I’ve seen National Golf Links of America, which, as longtime readers know is my favorite course, and I highly encourage anyone in the area to attend on Sunday — no ropes, great golf, amazing course, the up-and-coming young stars, etc.
