A new voice in golf, creating differentiated and compelling content that inspires and excites golfers.
For this episode we’re heading west to Oregon to spend some time with the founders of two awesome brands based in the Pacific Northwest. The first is Akbar Chisti, the founder of Seamus Golf, one of the biggest golf accessory brands out there. The second is Sam Hahn of L.A.B. Golf is a modern brand on a mission to simplify the game by improving performance on the green to help golfers save a few strokes off their scorecard. If you're looking for a tip on the perfect Oregon golf itinerary, be sure to stick around to the end. It's totally worth it.
For this episode, we have all three Fairgame founders (Adam Scott, Ben Clymer and Eric Mayville) back on the podcast for a fun discussion on a variety of topics, including the origin story behind the creation of this very company.
As golf continues to evolve, new faces and personalities have emerged, making the game more enjoyable across every aspect of our lives. For this episode, we have two rising stars (Tisha Lynn and Kira Dixon) on the podcast to share their experiences and what it takes to make it in modern day media.
We’ve got a special guest with us for this episode. Before Adam (The 2013 Masters Champion and Fairgame co-founder) there was another Scott with a deep connection to the game. That man is Phil Scott and he’s spent decades working in golf and we had to have him on the podcast to learn more about his background, what he’s been up to, and maybe hear some funny stories about Adam’s early days.
We’ve been spending time with golfers all over the country (which we love!) but we decided to make Episode 24 all about our hometown and link up with two local golfers. The first is Neil Tan (@publicdripgolf), a Brooklyn-based designer, photographer and father who gets out every chance he can. The second is Liz Breed (@shank.haney), a professional golfer turned teaching pro who knows tons about golf swing, and has a pretty solid game, too.
We hit up a few of our friends from Minnesota to learn more about the golf scene in their hometown and what they’ve been up to this season. One is John Mooty, the man behind Sentinel Golf, a modern golf accessory brand making some major moves in the golf space. The other is Greg Jameel, the Program Director at the Solomon Hughes Jr. Golf Academy, a youth focused program in Minneapolis that uses golf as a bridge to encourage academic and athletic greatness.
This episode is dedicated to the Northeast. Ok, we might be biased, but there’s something really special about golf up here (even though there’s always a chance it might snow in May).For this episode we’ve got 2 up and coming guys in the golf space from our neck of the woods. The first is Dan Sullivan, founder of Solo Golf Co. The other is Christopher Cavanaugh of CAVY design. Both call the Northeast home and are bringing fresh and unique perspectives to the game through their creations.
Making a tournament of this magnitude run smoothly is no small feat and there are tons of people behind the scenes that tirelessly work around the clock toward that common goal. We met up with a few of them to get their perspectives on the gear, the course, the content and the fan experience.
Golf at the professional level has been very exciting this year. There’s been some pretty epic performance on the course (remember Rory and Colin’s double hole out on 18 at Augusta? One Sunday?). New rivalries across the sport have emerged and have permeated just about every conversation across the globe. For this episode we’re chatting with Trevor Immelman - the 2008 Masters Champion and captain of the International team for the Presidents Cup. Trevor has also played golf in 3 different tours over his career - this guy knows a lot about golf and we had to get his perspective on the game and how he's getting ready for the epic showdown at Quail Hollow.
For this episode, we’re sitting down with @truespecgolf ’s Jason Owen (a Master Fitter) and Jeff Ritter (A Director of Instruction who's been named one of the Best Teachers in America by Golf Digest) to unpack those thoughts and learn more about what they do to get golfers ready for the season.
As the game grows in cultural relevance, more and more people have found their ways to use the golf to create the life they want to live. One of them is Matt Cardis - some of you may know his insta account @golfinyourstate. His way of life allows him to be creative in ways people stuck behind desks will never be able to do and see the game evolve on the ground in real time, all across the country. Our other guest is Patrick Donahue. Patrick grew up with the game and now works for the West Golf Association - the guys behind the Evan’s Scholar program - an initiative that empowers youth to pursue their professional dreams by providing full tuition and housing scholarships in exchange for being a part of their junior caddying program. These are two unique proof points that show golf can be so much more than a weekend activity.
Can a club only be in one place? Is membership limited to a select few? What does it take to apply? As golf grows, there are people looking to change what it means to be a part of a "club". Kristin Finlay is breaking the traditional model with @beachsidegolfclub, a club with one of the strongest male to female ratios. Brendon Thomas, the founder of the @GolfersJournal has launched a series of events all across the country where their members can play, compete and connect... all in an effort to find new ways to create a sense of community and connection.
There's something about golf that attracts artists, photographers and designers. Maybe it's the fresh air? Or the fact that it's an escape from being in front of the computer? In this episode, Andrew sits down with AJ Voelpel, the man behind @goodboyoriginals / the director of content @municipal and David Diliberto, the founder of @golfiecture to learn what got them into the game and what inspires the artful and design forward golf-centric things that they create.
There are more people playing golf today than ever before.. and women make up a pretty large chunk of that group. In this episode Andrew links up with Jaimie Geier (from the Fairgame team) who's just gotten into the the game and Lauren Prince (@guiltyofgolf) to learn more about their experiences in golf from every angle.
Sharing unique perspectives on golf is what we're about at Fairgame... and the guys over at are doing exactly that. In this "collab pod" episode, Andrew chats with Drew, Connor and Brad to learn more about the mission behind their podcast and what excites them about the direction that golf is going in.
Most things in golf (and life) are mass-manufactured for speed and reach. In this episode, we link up with Nic Mulflur (@mackenziegolfbags) and Rob Collins (@kingcollinsgolf), two craftsmen in the game that do things a little differently in order to reach today's golfer while standing the test of time.
