Mark Bryan from Hootie and The Blowfish joins Charlie as the play one of Myrtle Beach Golf’s most memorable golf courses, River Club in Pawleys Island
Charlie: Today in Myrtle beach, South Carolina, I'm with the lead guitar player from one of the world's most beloved bands, Hootie and the Blowfish. I'm Charlie Rymer, and this is Ridin' With Rymer.
Mark: No, that can't be him. I'm looking for a pro. It's supposed to be Charlie Rymer.
Charlie: What's up buddy? How are you doing?
Mark: I'm good. I'm good. Thanks for having me.
Charlie: Oh my goodness. It's my favorite rock star, Mark Bryan. I got a great golf course for us right here. There's some River Club. Let's go. Let's get him loaded up.
Mark: It looks beautiful. What's going on here? It looks like we can go off course with this thing. Let's talk about golf.
Charlie: How long have you been playing golf?
Mark: Oh man, since I was a teenager. But I didn't really take it seriously til Puggy Blackmon, the former Director of Golf for USC.
Mark: Til he gave me lessons. When he did, my handicap improved and I learned how to make a real turn on the golf ball.
Mark: So I've been playing seriously now for maybe 25 years.
Charlie: Yeah. Puggy was my golf coach in college in Georgia Tech, where I went to school.
Mark: That's so cool. I love the full circle-ness of that story.
Charlie: I got two Goldens, you got two Goldens.
Mark: I got two Golden Retrievers, yeah.
Charlie: Had they been traveling with you any?
Mark: They have. They've done the whole summer with us. They have a little bunk on the bus and everything. It's great. Sometimes, I'll take them out while I'm hitting golf balls. It's everything I can do to get the boy to stay because he thinks it's a game. He thinks he's supposed to be fetching them.
Charlie: Well lucky for you, if he goes out watching you hit golf balls, they don't have to go very far to retrieve them.
Charlie: So last time we spent some time together was back in the spring. You guys were doing rehearsals for the big summer tour. How much fun have you had on this tour this summer?
Mark: It's the most exhilarating thing. I already get a burst of energy from playing music anyway. But when you take it in front of people that are freaking out about it and giving that energy back to you, it just takes everything to another level and all of a sudden, it's like an adrenaline burst and I can't control myself. That's why you see me flying all over the stage.
Charlie: Hopping like a bunny.
Mark: I tell people when Darius and I go out and play golf in the mornings then go do a show at night, it's like doing two-a-days.
Mark: We have a new Hootie and the Blowfish album. It's the first one in over 12 years, I guess. We're really excited about it. We worked really hard on it. It might be the best batch of songs we've ever done. Time will tell.
Charlie: All right, Mark. We got this beautiful island green par three.
Mark: Yeah. What are we hitting? It looks like 150.
Charlie: Come on with me. We're not doing anything conventional. Let's go. Come on.
Mark: All right.
Charlie: What I want is three skips, jump over the bunker, and then up about 12 feet right at the flag.
Mark: What club do you have in your hand, four iron?
Charlie: I've got the four iron.
Charlie: To hit it low, I like setting my hands and then holding them. I want to make sure that impact, that this angle right here between the back of the right hand and the back of the right wrist is as sharp as it can be. That'll drive it right down into the water.
Mark: That got three skims.
Charlie: Three skips.
Mark: I'm going to put this off my back foot and attempt to hit it thin.
Charlie: You're thinking way too much. See the ball, be the ball. Yes. He did it. All right, how are you going to get to this yellow ball plugged in the face of this bunker, out of there and up on the green?
Mark: That a baby.
Charlie: You see him posing?
Mark: I'm making sure that the sand all drips off the club down onto my head.
Charlie: Let me get you out of there.
Mark: Thanks, buddy.
Charlie: On a serious note. What you and the band have been able to do with the Monday after the Masters, all of these years.
Mark: Yeah. I guess this April will be our 26th year. We have a golf event for charity and a bunch of celebs coming in. Then we do a concert around it as well. You could never foresee the success that we've had with that event. It's something we could do for 50 years even.
Mark: All right, Charlie. I think I'm just headed to that guidepost out there for this one. Are you going to carry it that far?
Charlie: No. You got all of that one, didn't you?
Mark: Yeah. It should be out there in the fairway somewhere.
Charlie: Do you have any questions for me?
Mark: I actually do. I really enjoyed your Masters coverage.
Mark: Yeah, it was really fun. You did a great job with that.
Charlie: Oh, well. Thank you.
Mark: It was fun.
Charlie: It's been fun to get to do that. I like having fun with golf, but I guess I really am a golf nerd. Especially when it comes to Augusta, because I grew up not too far from there.
Mark: Exactly. And it showed that you can be that guy too. How much you respect the game, and that you can handle it professionally without always making jokes about it. We love that you can make jokes about it too.
Charlie: Golf is different for everybody, don't you think?
Mark: I always had this dream of having a course one day, where you can just play in a bathing suit if you want. I just think there should be a looser code to golf in general, as long as you're still respecting the game and respecting the players around you.
Charlie: If you do that golf course, can I be a member?
Mark: Yeah, you might be my first member. I might have you help me design the damn thing.
Charlie: That would be awesome.
Mark: Charlie, thank you for having me out here today. What a beautiful golf course.
Charlie: Well, it's my pleasure to have you here. There's so many little hidden gems like this.
Charlie: The River Club. You come out for the first time, you're like man, how come I hadn't played this golf course 100 times?
Charlie: All right, we've got a couple-
Mark: I'm in the 18.
Charlie: Higher. All right.
Mark: If I can make this one backwards through my legs, will you give me the match?
Charlie: No way. No way. God. You are the best, buddy.
Mark: Thanks, dude.
Charlie: So much fun, enjoyed it.
Mark: Thanks, man. What a great day.
Charlie: What a way to finish off. I lose the match between the legs, backwards.
Mark: What can I tell you?
Charlie: You're great for my stress level. A lot of fun, buddy.
Mark: I love playing with you, man. Thanks for having me out. What a beautiful course.
Charlie: Well, you got it. I appreciate you Ridin' with Rymer here in River Club in beautiful Pawleys Island, South Carolina.
Mark: Let's do it again.
Charlie: Anytime, my friend.
Charlie: Book your next vacation or get a customized quote in myrtlebeachgolftrips.com.
Charlie: This is something I've always wanted to ask. I'm not real good at asking favors, but do you think you could get Darius Rucker's autograph for me?
Mark: I don't know. I don't know, actually. I feel like Homer Simpson. I just played golf with Homer Simpson today. That does make the jalapeno tuna taste better.
Charlie: That's how you finish off a day right there.
