That's fantastic! haven't seen that but I can imagine the dialogue

 

Tried to find a clip on youtube to link to, but NBC took them all down. That episode is free to stream all over the place though, I'd highly recommend checking it out!

 

For reference it's Season 2 Episode 19

First, I want to thank all of you for not pointing out the obvious flaw in my "Golf Gigolo" scheme. And, of course, that is it would probably take the fun out of playing golf.

 

If i were going to do anything in the golf industry it would be course design and real estate development. All the rest of it seem like a lot of work.

 

But of course all of us have not really listed our true dream job. PGA Tour Pro. Who among us does not dream of playing the tour and winning.

Dream job? Inventor/owner/sole proprietor of a Golf WABAC Machine - offering golfing vacations with your favorites from a bygone era (you can bring the 460cc warhead with you). Imagine teeing up with Ouimet, Jones, Hogan or Palmer in their primes. Or maybe even Jan Stephenson....

 

It's a goldmine!

I would have a player development academy. Having great minds in different fields like biomechanics, statistics, neuroscience, psychology, fitness, nutrition, club fitting, club design, etc.

 

I would develop a 'one stop shop' for golfers and it would be customized to each player's ability.

 

In our spare time, we would research all different facets of the game and use 'build upon thinking' process in order to come up with the best conclusions that satisfy all different fields involved with the game.

I did think of that one first but I assumed it was non pro job. Kinda like when people ask football players their goals after football. But if the chance ever came up I'd play on tour in a heartbeat

Shaft design.

 

I think there's so many boundaries to be pushed it's not even funny.

 

Though I'd rather do it for someone like Matrix, Fujikura, Quadra or MRC who have access or the ability to get access to equipment and products I'd need.

I laught at your claims to fight a zombie apocalypse when most of you can't stand up to a Spider

I like the idea of a bar/restaurant with hitting bays. I went to one and it was awesome. There were 4 bays, with a table and chairs directly behind each screen. Just beer-swilling fools, and a lot of laughs.

There is no spoon.

There are OptiGolf centers popping up in various cities. It's really fun and reasonably priced. Awesome for the winter time.

 

One thing they don't advertise is you can go there and practice on the range. I think it was only $20 for an hour. I plan to go once a week once the snows hit.

And, of course, that is it would probably take the fun out of playing golf.

Hey Rick, now THAT would definitely take the fun out of playing golf! If your scores relied on what you and your family are eating the next few weeks; golf definitely wouldn't be fun anymore!
