Episode #32: 7 Stupid Golf-Related Items You Don’t Need 05/06/2021
Meredith: Welcome to Episode Number 32 of the Gimme Golf Podcast, powered by myrtlebeachgolftrips.com. Today, I'm going to give you seven golf related items you don't need. And if you have some of these items, people may be laughing at you.
Nate, I will tell you coming up with this list was super easy. With the number of years that you and I have been in the golf business, I probably could have come up with dozens and dozens of stupid golf related items you don't need.
Nate: I'm going to bet a lot of my stuff that I'd come up with this is on your list.
Meredith: All right, so this is a fun topic. And actually this may save people a lot of money. Let's be honest. There's so many gimmicks out there and just golf gadgets that you really don't need.
Nate: Stupid stuff and embarrassment.
Meredith: Yeah. I'm all about eliminating clutter, keeping things simple. So you may be listening to this podcast today. You might be cleaning house today. You might need to have a yard sale or a golf yard sale or something. Okay. So we're going to start out with number one, iron head covers.
Nate: Oh, my gosh.
Meredith: Have you ever seen it?
Nate: Yeah. And I hate to say I've got a regular guy that I play with in my foursome has them. Yeah, they get everywhere.
Meredith: You're not going to say names, right?
Meredith: But you're going to share this link with them, right?
Nate: I don't know. I think he listens, but...
Meredith: So yeah, that's a struggle for me to see that. Especially as an instructor, when I see students come up or golfers, I mean, let's talk about the pace of play in golf. I mean, that is an area that needs to be improved. That is not going to help, number one, pace of play. If you're putting on the iron head cover after you hit it, there's literally, there's got to be some OCD issues. Maybe something is there. Something is not quite right.
Nate: I've never understood those. And even when I first started playing golf, I think they look stupid. The big black head covers are almost twice the size of the irons and then you've got ones that zip up.
Nate: It's just, it looks totally awful.
Meredith: It does. Now I will say this. Iron head covers I would actually use traveling.
Nate: I was just going to say that.
Meredith: Okay. So like if you're getting on an airplane, packing up your bag, absolutely, okay? But when you're using them out on the course and especially the OCDers that clean their club right after, and then put it back on?
Nate: Oh, my gosh.
Meredith: Oh, my gosh.
Nate: Say, "Come on, move."
Nate: And you wouldn't believe how many of those get lost. And I mean, you think about regular head covers, driver 3 woods that are lost, but lost and found in golf courses are saturated with these and they're everywhere. It's crazy.
Meredith: I know. Yeah.
Nate: You're going to lose them any way.
Nate: So just don't. Don't do it.
Meredith: But while we're talking about this, I'm just curious. What do you do with your head cover? Like when you tee off, do you put your head cover back on or do you throw it? If you're riding in a cart, do you throw it back in the basket?
Nate: I put it back on.
Nate: Just because the thing I'm OCD about is my iron hitting against the shaft of my driver or 3 wood. And just if they rest there and they rattle, it will scratch it.
Nate: And to me, it's an eyesore if you've got a scratch down by the head of your driver-
Nate: ... when you're teeing it up.
Nate: Yes, I do put my head covers back on my driver and 3 wood.
Meredith: Oh, that's good.
Meredith: Okay. So you're just partially OCD. It's not bad.
Nate: Just partially.
Meredith: Actually, I feel like I'm a little sloppy when it comes to that. What I do is I arrange my clubs, like my driver, because I think about what you said, too, but I move my irons away and I separate them in my bag far enough to know that if I'm riding in a cart, they're not going to jingle and click back and forth like that. But I do it in my own way. I just separate it.
Nate: Separate it. And then I've got the towel around the head of my putter, so it doesn't do that to my driver.
Meredith: Okay. That's actually a really good idea.
Nate: Yeah. So my towel is always on my putter.
Meredith: I like that.
Nate: I have a towel that I wipe my face off with, that's not used to clean clubs.
Nate: It's just used for me.
Meredith: Right. So that's a good idea. All right. Number two. You know what, I'm not even going to say this because I'm going to give you the privilege to talk about this. All I'm going to say is two words. Okay. You ready?
Meredith: Bead counter.
Nate: Yeah, I'm not playing golf with you. Just leave the tee. It's like, if you see someone with a bead counter, I know people are new and they don't know that these things aren't good.
Meredith: I think, you know what it is, Nate? It's the Catholics.
Nate: Oh, yeah.
Meredith: Isn't it? [Crosstalk 00:05:03].
Nate: They have the rosaries, yeah, yeah. [crosstalk 00:05:03] Rosary beads, yeah, yeah. And a lot of people that are on the green with the finger motion, looking back, counting their shots and then they don't use it anyway.
Nate: And then there's not enough beads on it, anyway.
Nate: If you've got one.
Meredith: And those things can be a little slippery, too. I don't know if you've ever played with someone who's like... When I was growing up, I played with a few people that had bead counters and you forget shots. You don't use it every shot. It's easy to miscount your strokes there.
Nate: Yeah, it's...
Meredith: And quite frankly, if you're using a bead counter, you might need a golf lesson.
Nate: Well, and you shouldn't keep score.
Nate: You should just be out playing golf.
Nate: Yeah. That one, we need to just move on from that one. Yeah.
Meredith: I knew you'd like that, though.
Nate: That's worse than the iron head covers.
Meredith: You think so?
Meredith: Would you put that first?
Nate: Yeah. I'd put that first.
Nate: But I want to see what else you have.
Meredith: All right. Number three, the ball retriever. Let's talk about the bulky, big, heavy ball retriever.
Nate: I could go on forever about this one because it bothers me in so many ways, because if you've got a ball retriever, you're doing more than playing golf. Most people that I've seen that have these, their goal is to leave with more golf balls than they showed up with. And that's not a good thing.
Meredith: Right. And if you're carrying a ball retriever, it's not a good sign of your game.
Nate: I can't even say it out loud.
Meredith: I know, right? It's hard.
Nate: Ball retriever. Now, I'm going to say there's a lot of people listening probably have these. People are laughing at you, right?
Meredith: Yeah. Yeah. I mean, yeah. I mean, if I see someone with a ball retriever in their bag, I'm like, "Oh, no."
Meredith: If I get paired up with someone with a ball retriever, I'm literally like, "Man, this is going to be a long round."
Nate: Yeah. Now I can see if a ball is on the edge and you go down, you can use your golf club to get it out.
Nate: If you need a ball retriever and to extend it, it's like that ball's gone.
Nate: And you don't deserve to get that back-
Nate: ... if you hit that bad.
Meredith: Yeah. I agree.
Nate: Like I said, I think it's a game for people, though. Don't you think?
Meredith: I think it's, yeah, it's maybe like shell collecting on the beach. Like how many golf balls can I find?
Nate: They'd almost rather collect golf balls, retrieve golf balls, than actually play.
Meredith: That's true.
Nate: Yeah. Right.
Meredith: It's like while I'm out playing golf, I'm going to go golf ball hunting.
Nate: Yeah, you hit it that bad, it deserves to be gone. And then the joke is, "Well, I had to regrip my ball retriever." It's like, "Ah."
Meredith: Hold on, what did you say? Regrip?
Nate: People say the joke about it, I played so bad that I had to regrip my ball retriever.
Meredith: Oh, I've never heard that.
Nate: You shouldn't have it.
Nate: And don't even mention pace of play, what it does.
Meredith: I know.
Nate: How awful is it when you're behind a group that's got the guy with the ball retriever fully extended-
Meredith: Like 16 [crosstalk 00:08:07].
Nate: Yeah, and you're sitting there going, "Come on, man." It's like, yeah. Yeah.
Meredith: When I was a little kid, I had a ball retriever and I remember I never used it, but what I did was I would extend it all the way and try to swing it. It was like 12 feet long. I'd break it.
Nate: And I see, you fish it in. You get algae all over the end.
Meredith: Oh, it's nasty.
Nate: Like, "Ah."
Meredith: And then you have to touch it.
Meredith: It's like going fishing.
Nate: And not to mention the weight, the weight of it. My suggestion would be take the ball retriever out and put an alignment stick in your bag and practice with that, right?
Meredith: Yeah. Nice and lightweight and it's functional. And you can improve your game to where you're actually not going in the water. Goals.
Nate: Yeah. The ball retriever infuriates me, I would say.
Meredith: All right. So number four. What about big oversized golf bags? Oh, I'm so guilty. I'm so guilty.
Nate: Yeah, I used to be.
Nate: The one thing about it is it does keep your clubs separated better and it's better on a golf cart, but transport and being a golf professional, you always wanted your name on your bag. I always turned my name in though, because I didn't want anyone to know who it was, but the bag was nice.
Nate: But yet now that's yesteryear.
Nate: That's a long time ago.
Meredith: Well, I have my staff bag, but we're filming and obviously I want to connect with people being an LPGA instructor. So I have my staff bag and I use it a lot, but I don't really like it. I would love to go incognito when I play golf. Because for me, there's a pressure, then there's pressure. So when I go out and play golf, my goal is number one, to have fun. That is my goal. And if I score low, great, that's just like the cherry on top. But because I work in the golf business and I teach, it's always I just want to go have a good time, even if it means not even keeping score sometimes. So if I get to a course and let's say, I go by myself, obviously most of the time I'll get paired up with someone, people I don't know. And then they see my big honker bag, LPGA Meredith Kirk. And then I'm thinking, in my mind-
Nate: It's creating expectations for you, doesn't it? Yeah.
Meredith: ... then I'm like, yes. That's when I'm like, "Crap, why do I not? Like, I don't want to have my name on this bag. I don't want anyone to know I'm an LPGA instructor. I just want to come out and just play golf," with not feeling pressure or expectations because people will expect me to play really, really well. And sometimes I do, but sometimes I don't.
Meredith: I mean, last year I got paired up with a group and they were like, "Oh." They thought it was so cool I was an LPG instructor and the whole time I'm thinking, "I have to perform now." I felt like, and it's the competitive side of me, obviously, when you are a competitive golfer, I just don't think it goes away. I think it's just always that side of you that can turn on, you know?
And I'm like, I mean, I didn't play bad. I mean, it was just like, I don't know. Maybe I shot like an 83 or 84. I mean, it's bad. Yeah. It's not good, but it's not awful, but it's still embarrassing. So even though I went out and look, low 80s, okay, whatever. I'll take it. It's fine. It's not a big deal. I'm not, again, my goal is to have fun, but then I leave thinking, "Oh, my gosh, those people probably think I'm such a bad player because I shot in the low 80s." They're probably expecting me to shoot in the low 70s, which I would love to. And I can, if I play a lot of golf.
Nate: They probably didn't even know. I mean, they see you hit the ball. They're probably not keeping your score anyway.
Nate: Your bag's not overly big. Now it does have LPGA, your name on it.
Meredith: There's bigger bags than mine, though.
Meredith: And that is more of like the ladies oversized bag. I mean, but you guys, like the staff bags.
Nate: I had a PING bag, the white PING bag with the furry lining in it with my name on it. Now, that was the best bag. But I always put my name on the inside. I never had to turn my name out. But as far as club organization, they're fantastic.
Nate: But when you're, those days are long gone, I've got just a carry bag. It does have a stand on it. But when you get to the golf course, the cart attendants are taking out a staff bag. It's like, "Oh."
Meredith: Oh, they're probably like, "Oh, man."
Nate: "This guy." It's like, "This guy is here."
Meredith: Okay. And what about the nonprofessional golfers who have the staff bags?
Nate: Yeah. And I will say there, it's good to, if you're not ever going to walk, it's probably good to get a cart bag. And some of those are large, but they're not staff bag large.
Nate: They're not. But you do see some people that have actually got some old golf professional's staff bag. I've seen it and it's not even their name on it.
Meredith: Are you serious?
Nate: And they're using it. It's like, "Yeah." So the big staff bag is, if your game's not backing it up, people are going to kind of laugh at you.
Meredith: Yeah. Right, exactly. And you said it right there. That's the key. When you have the big bag, you got to, you almost there's like a performance level with it.
Nate: And it's like that person that goes to the back tees and you see him swinging. It's like, "Ah." It's kind of along the same lines.
Meredith: Yep. All right. Number five. I think we're on number five. Yeah, number five. All right. The newest type of golf balls. Like that's just, okay, how do I say this politely. If you are a 15 plus handicap, I would not waste money on the newest golf balls and the technology because you just don't need it yet.
Nate: And I will say for the most part, a lot of people maybe don't do this, but there are some that do, they want more spin. And it's like, you ask them, "Well, what do you hit from 150 yards?" And they say, "Well, five iron." It's like, "Well, why do you want the ball to back up? Why do you want less distance?"
Nate: Right? So, I don't know. I think if you get good with one golf ball, I think that's the way to go.
Meredith: Right, yeah. Find the golf ball.
Nate: It's confidence, right? Don't you think a lot of it is just confidence? I played my best round with this golf ball.
Meredith: I believe so. I mean, and I know that, I mean, I could tell a difference with golf balls, but obviously we're golf pros. I mean, we've been in the business. We've been doing this a long time. Yeah, there is a difference, but you really don't see the difference until you get better, until you get a lower handicap.
Nate: Unless you find these golf balls with your ball retriever, you shouldn't be playing these high [inaudible 00:14:47] balls, right?
Meredith: It's just, I mean, you can get new golf balls, but don't feel like you have to get the newest, most expensive.
Meredith: If you are a 15 plus, I would not recommend a Pro V1, okay? I love Pro V1s. They're in my top three golf balls.
Nate: I've got to be honest with you. So when I got out of the golf industry side, I had like, and I still have like 15 dozen Pro V1s. Now they're old. And I use them once in a while, but I will admit the ball that I'm using is the Callaway Soft, which is a-
Meredith: The Chrome?
Nate: No, not the Chrome. It's called a Callaway Soft. And I use an orange golf ball.
Meredith: You're using a colored ball?
Nate: I'm using a colored golf ball.
Meredith: When did you start doing that?
Nate: Just when I got back into golf again. And I love it because I can see it. I know it's mine. And it's got that, is it called that matte finish?
Nate: And it makes the ball feel soft.
Nate: I think it's great. Now, it's a cheap ball. Generally, it'd be probably like an old Pinnacle Gold or something-
Nate: ... but I love the golf ball.
Nate: So I tend to leave my Pro V1s-
Nate: ... even though I could lose those all, it wouldn't cost me anything. I was on staff with Titleist, but I like that golf ball. And I'm not embarrassed to play it.
Meredith: No. I mean, I'm actually shocked that you play with an orange golf ball.
Meredith: No, I think it's cool. I love playing with colored balls.
Meredith: I mean, I had pink.
Meredith: I get pink ones, because I'm on staff with Titleist.
Nate: It's funny, because I've tried the red and the orange pop better. It's harder for me to find the red golf ball, I don't know-
Meredith: Oh, gotcha.
Nate: ... just maybe my eyes, but yeah.
Meredith: Yeah. Well, some colors I think would mess with me. I don't know if I could play with certain colors.
Nate: And now it's a little different for me because I actually have to buy golf balls.
Nate: So it's like, "Yeah. This one will work."
Meredith: Have you played with the blue ones?
Nate: I have not. No.
Meredith: Yeah. Blue, I don't think I could play with the blue balls.
Nate: No, I haven't. Who makes those?
Meredith: Callaway makes blue. What's it called? It starts with a V, the company?
Nate: Oh, Vice. Is it Vice golf?
Meredith: No, hold on. Let me Google it.
Meredith: Yes. Yes.
Nate: Yeah, they made the crystal golf ball, too, right? Yeah.
Meredith: Yes. They have a lot of colors. I think they actually have the most, but I don't play with those.
Nate: I see where you're going with that one because people do buy a golf ball that they shouldn't be buying, they shouldn't play.
Nate: It's a small, the pretty one or the high end golf balls is a small market.
Meredith: It is a small market.
Meredith: And don't feel like you have to spend the money. Save the money for something else.
Nate: Maybe that's why they have a ball retriever. They feel like they got to get it back, right?
Meredith: Right. There you go. So you can eliminate two things.
Nate: Yeah, yeah.
Meredith: All right. Number six, golf club cleaning solution kits.
Nate: Now do you mean the little spray bottle? I'm just guessing it's got a ring. It's on your golf bag. It's got a little spray bottle with the brush at the end of it.
Meredith: Yes. Now the brush is, all right, the brush is not necessarily a bad thing. Having a bristly brush, but I would suggest don't hang it on your golf bag-
Nate: Yeah, just because.
Meredith: ... because you can get cut. Like seriously. I actually used to do that. I learned from experience. You could like rub your hands-
Nate: Are you talking the wire brush-
Meredith: The wire brush.
Nate: ... something like that. Yeah. And that frays your golf bag, too.
Nate: I've never had one, but I've seen that.
Meredith: Yeah. Just be careful if you use that. Yeah. Why waste the money? If you clean your clubs, most ranges and all of our courses, we have-
Nate: Club cleaner there.
Meredith: ... club cleaner there. Just learn to clean your clubs before you leave the course. And then you have them, if you have a cart, most golf carts have the club cleaner attached to it. Wet your towel, wipe your clubs. If you take care of your clubs while you're playing, you're not going to have to have a whole kit, a cleaning kit.
Nate: And you don't want to be that guy that's out there spraying your club down and brushing it every time.
Nate: That's just, it looks amateurish.
Meredith: It does. Yeah. And I mean, and another tip, like what's the best way to clean your clubs? Let's say you don't clean them at the golf course and you get back home. Just some Dawn, just like a couple of drops of Dawn detergent in a warm sink, tub, out in the garage, wherever you clean, in a bucket.
Nate: Let them soak in a bucket for a bit.
Meredith: Yeah. Just let them soak. You'd be amazed at what just a couple drops of the Dawn cleaner does.
Nate: I agree. I've seen that person that has that hanging from their bag.
Meredith: Oh, man. It's just a total accessory you do not need. Yeah.
Nate: Yep, for sure.
Meredith: You can just clean them at the course.
Nate: Doesn't make me as mad as the ball retriever, though.
Meredith: Oh, man, the ball retriever.
Meredith: Yeah. We need to get rid of all those.
Nate: [inaudible 00:19:39].
Meredith: All right. Number seven. I think this is our last one. All right. The club holders that you use around the green, like you put them in the ground as you walk up to the green and then you can lay your, I guess your wedges or the clubs that you use prior to-
Nate: Oh, to elevate so your grip doesn't get wet.
Meredith: So, your grip doesn't get wet. Hey, great idea.
Nate: The concept is great.
Meredith: The concept is great.
Meredith: But I'm not going to carry an additional object to rest my club because you know what I'm going to do? And maybe it's just because I'm not OCD or like obsessive about this. I'm going to lay my club down. If the ground's dewy, guess what? I'm laying it down and you know what's going to happen? I'm going to walk back to my bag, if I'm walking or walk back to the cart or whatever, and I'm going to get my towel and I'm going to wipe it.
Nate: I've solved that problem because I do take that towel that I wipe my face off with, to the green every time. So I've got something to throw down I can throw my club on.
Meredith: Yeah. I mean, do you ever get the towel? Do you notice some guys get the towel and they [crosstalk 00:20:45] hang it from their waist? Yeah. Let's talk about that [crosstalk 00:20:48] for a second.
Nate: Let's not. Yeah. Yeah, that looks interesting, doesn't it?
Meredith: Speaking of towels, another thing I would suggest is not like in the summer, it especially gets really hot here in Myrtle Beach. You know it's hot playing golf here in July and August. I wouldn't put a towel and wet it around your neck. It actually can affect your golf swing. You know those cooling towels?
Nate: Oh, yeah, they try to keep yourself so-
Meredith: Yeah. They try to keep you cool.
Meredith: Do they work? Can they keep you cool for a little bit, but not much?
Nate: Yeah, the towel does not stay cool. When you walk outside, within two minutes that's warm water.
Meredith: Yeah. But it just adds unnecessary weight on your head and the golf swing, it's just not. I've seen people do that and it just can affect your swing.
Nate: Getting back to the towel on the waist, it's either somebody, they put it through their belt loop or they got it tucked into their pants.
Meredith: Yes. Oh, yes.
Nate: It's like, "Yeah."
Meredith: Yeah. No, don't worry about doing that. Just bring an extra towel. I have an extra towel in my bag and then I have the towel that hangs on my bag.
Meredith: Most of the time, I don't need the towel in my bag, but for example, Solomon, my second oldest, I mean, he is OCD when it comes to keeping his clubs really, really clean and he will have a towel that's just loose, not even attached to his bag, on top of the towel that he has attached to his bag. I mean each and every time he has it, he wets one end of it. You've probably seen this.
Nate: Yep, I do that actually.
Meredith: Yeah. Okay. Yeah. You wet one end and you have the other end dry.
Meredith: And he just kind of attaches it, like runs it through one of the handles on his bag. He walks, I mean, he primarily walks. That's honestly the best way to do it. But having it hang from your waist, as an instructor, too, it will mess with your swing, every little thing like that.
Nate: How do you play with that on? How do you swing with that? That's like [crosstalk 00:22:43].
Meredith: I don't know. I don't know.
Nate: Yeah, I don't get that.
Meredith: Yeah, I don't get that either.
Nate: When I do the towel, I got the towel to wipe for me and then I've got the towel to clean my clubs.
Nate: If you don't have a club cleaner, which generally most golf courses, but you still need a towel to wipe off your clubs after you've brushed it, after you've cleaned it with the club cleaner.
Meredith: Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. You do. Yeah. You need to dry those grooves out and then also you can get a golf tee. Do you do it?
Meredith: I just get a golf tee sometimes. Like if I get something stuck in the grooves, like once it's wet, I just get a golf tee out just real quick.
Nate: Yeah. Well, getting back to your, what was it? I call it an apparatus that elevates your grip.
Nate: I mean, it was a good thought, but the problem is you've got so many other things in your pocket.
Meredith: I know.
Nate: If you've got a ball marker, you've got tees, you've got a coin.
Nate: You've got enough stuff in your pocket, right?
Meredith: Yeah. And speaking of ball markers, and I should have added ball markers, overpriced ball markers, on our list. That should be our number eight. But the ball markers in this day and age, I don't like as much as when we were growing up because I like the ball markers that, old school, literally are flush to the ground.
Nate: Are you talking about the plastic ones with the-
Meredith: Yes. The plastic-
Meredith: ... just the old school plastic.
Nate: It almost goes below the surface.
Meredith: It almost goes below the surface.
Meredith: I love those. And you can buy, you can go on Amazon, you can buy 100 of them for like $5. That's the way to go. Using a coin, I don't like that because it's elevated. I mean, the goal is if you're marking your ball, right, there's multiple goals. One, you want to mark your ball because you want to take a step back. You want to read your line, you can clean your ball, right? There's benefits to marking your ball. Also, if you're in someone's line and they're putting, but the goal is you don't want their ball to hit that marker.
Nate: No, and you're right. There are some huge markers now, too.
Nate: People use like a silver dollar. It's like a [crosstalk 00:24:42]-
Meredith: Yeah, or like a casino chip. And that's cute and everything, but it's not practical. It's not...
Nate: I'll admit, I've been guilty of that since I've played golf again, just whatever I have in my pocket.
Nate: Something that's been in my bag.
Meredith: Right. And then like the ones that are attached to the gloves, they're still too bulky. They're too small. And then they're still too bulky. This is where I guess I'm actually OCD. I say I'm not OCD, but then I'm like, when it comes to marking a ball, just, I like it flush.
Nate: Yeah. Definitely. The plastic ones-
Meredith: They're the best.
Nate: ... they are smaller. And they get, like I said, I think they almost get below the surface a bit.
Nate: So, yeah.
Meredith: Yeah. Those are good ones.
Nate: You had all good things here.
Nate: Things that got me riled up.
Meredith: Hey, these are, I know, right?
Meredith: The list goes on though. It goes on and on and on. I think the goal again is keep golf fun. Don't feel like you have to have every single knickknack, every single gadget, keep your bag simple. As we talked about in the last podcast, when it comes to clubs and stuff just use the clubs that you play your best with. If you need to fill a gap in yardage, fill it. But you don't necessarily need all 14 clubs. Take the amount of balls you need. Hopefully, not too many. Don't feel like you have to walk the golf course with a dozen golf balls in your bag. It's not a workout. Go have fun. Simple, simple, simple. Less is more.
Nate: Yeah. And if you have a ball retriever, I just thought about this. If you have a ball retriever, it should count toward your 14 clubs.
Nate: Because it looks dumb.
Meredith: New rule by Nate DeWitt, USGA.
Nate: Yeah, my rule.
Meredith: Let's change it. Yeah. Ball retriever counts.
Nate: I'm sending that one in. Yeah.
Meredith: Oh, goodness. Oh, these are always a fun podcast. So yeah, if you didn't check out our last podcast, that was pretty good. What was the title of our last one?
Nate: Was it five reasons why your golf game might suck?
Meredith: Yeah, yeah. So, if you enjoyed this podcast, go check out our last podcast. We talked a lot about instruction and golf tips and really good information there. But Nate, thanks for joining in today.
