This is golf with Jay Delsing, a two-time All-American at UCLA, a participant in nearly 700 PGA Tour events, seven professional wins to his credit, over 30 years of professional golf experience, a member of the St. Louis Sports Hall of Fame. This is Golf with Jay Delsing. Welcome in to Golf with Jay Delsing, coming to you from the CarShield Studios and presented by Doherty Business Solutions. With Jay Delsing, I'm Dan McLaughlin.

We start this show off on the range. We also start our show off, Jay, at 9 a.m., 9 to 10, one hour show every Sunday here on 101 ESPN. Great to see you. You too, Danny. Good morning. And we're back to the 9 to 10 slot.

And yeah, it's great to be back. We got a lot shaking in the world of golf, man. Super Bowl Sunday. Do you have a pick? Of course I have a pick. What's your pick?

What's the number? Well, last check it was the Niners favored by two. Some have one and a half, but it's a pretty equal matchup here in the Super Bowl. I'm going Chiefs.

I am too. How do you bet against them with what they've done running through the AFC here in the playoffs? Betting against Pat Mahomes is bad for your health.

That's all I'm going to say. You just can't sit still. You watch him and he scrambles. The guy's got unbelievable pocket presence. He just, you know, gets that, gets that sense. And the way he and Kelsey have been connecting has been epic. Yeah.

Year after year. And they find a way and they're finding it in the playoffs. Are you a Taylor Swift fan? I'm a fan of what's happening right now with her in the NFL. I think it's good for the league. I think they're getting a ton of boost from this and it'll be an interesting prop bet today. How many times they'll show her on the telecast. It was interesting because I read an article that put a number associated with what her presence has brought into the NFL.

I think it's $330 million. How about that? Yeah. So it works. Marketing works. Guess who's getting that money?

The NFL. Yeah. Someway, somehow.

Yeah. They're always going to get the money, man. All the owners. All the owners will find a way to get the money when you talk about the NFL. Now there is money to talk about being one on the PGA tour as we kick things off on the show.

And it's Wyndham Clark, only three rounds though at Pebble Beach. It was too bad. I mean, I don't know if you look, I've experienced this before, Danny, living in California. And for the most part, it never rains. I mean, for the most part, it just never rains. It'll look cloudy. You'll swear it's going to rain. It doesn't rain. But when it decides to rain, sometimes it doesn't stop. I can remember my freshman year, we didn't get to hit any golf balls for, um, I mean, it was a couple of weeks.

Every course was closed. There was flooding. Um, Eddie Marin's somehow said to me, come on up and I'll give you a lesson at Bel Air, which was not great because he and I just didn't really connect on a golf swing level, especially at the time. But I was, it was pouring rain and he's given me a lesson under an umbrella and I'm swinging in the rain and we got a shagger out there trying to get the balls and I'm hitting them everywhere and he is sliding across.

There's literally six inches of water across every fairway and we're out there practicing golf. Yeah. So, um, they're going through that right now and Pebble Beach just got dumped on for 60 mile an hour winds and yeah, it was the right decision.

It was. They didn't really have a choice. Have you seen in past tour events, whether you competed in them or just watching them as a fan, but cutting to the final round out.

So you only have a three round event. They barely, they, they, they do that so sporadically and it's only when there's really no other choice. They'll, I won't say never, but I'm going to say never go to a Tuesday, but they'll go to Mondays for sure.

As often as they can. There's a huge logistic problem with going beyond Monday because you've got to get to the next site. You know, that place is rare and to go, they've been there, their staff, their five Oh one C three, their orgs have been working all year. You're going to keep, you know, 75 or 80 other guys away from that event for an extra day or two. You also have all of the staff, the tour staff that travels around, you've got a lot of the equipment they need to bring.

It's, it gets tough. I would think to the pro ams, you don't want to miss that because that's the top business leaders, probably the sponsors of the tournament and you have to make sure that you take care of them. Oh yeah.

Then the spy and the pro amps are what, you know, differentiate our, our, our tour. It's so much fun. Um, uh, and they're really kind of bucket list sort of things. Do you got to, um, the thrill of caddy it was a thrill.

Oh my gosh. But we had a blast and you know, the, um, the amateurs pay a lot of dough for that and their companies pay a lot of dough. It's, it's a big deal. We're seeing an emergence of Wyndham Clark. Are we not? We are. I think, I think we are.

You know, it's interesting. This is a kid that's got us a really deep amount of talent and he's just, I think he's just now starting to figure it out. If you, if you look up and look up and it's been what Danny, seven months since he won the, the U S open, anybody that wins us open, you just take your hat off to a grueling test of mental and physical combination and all of that jazz. And then he also won another event before the end of last year.

And that one is a skipping my mind right now. He played in the writer cup team and he also now has gone out and won, you know, the first elevated event of the 2024 schedule. So yeah, I think I guess second, because technically Hawaii was an elevated event, but he yeah, he's, he's got all, he's got everything he needs. That's for sure.

A lot of power, lot of good touch around the greens. You mentioned elevated event. Explain that for our golf fans that are hearing, well, the top players are at this elevated event, but the secondary events you may see one, two, five, but you're not going to see all the big boys. Do I have to?

Yeah, I think you do. I know. I know. I know.

It's just aggravating. So, so folks, here's what's gone on. The elevated event, pebble beach used to be competed on over three golf courses and there were a lot of players, a hundred and Oh gosh, 160, 170 players in the field. This elevated and the purse was extremely good. It was probably an $8 million, $9 million purse. Now, however, it's $20 million purse. There are 80 guys, no cut, and it's competed over two golf courses.

So it's, it's spyglass Hills and pebble beach. And so it's cut the amateur field at half. It's cut the play, the professional field at half. And that's an elevated event. And the top, what, 60 players are required to play. I think they're allowed one absence of the elevator. Why in the hell would you ever skip an elevated event?

Now with that kind of purse, that kind of money that's available, I didn't even pull up last place money, but I will pull up last place money and see what that was. Yeah. Ridiculous. While you do that, we need to head to a break. We'll go to the front nine and we're going to talk about the stop this week. It's one of the fun stops on the PGA waste management in Arizona.

Hi, this is Peter Jacobson and you're listening to golf with Jay Delsing. I'm delighted to welcome the amateur players tour to the golf with Jay Delsing show. The APT team has worked so hard to establish a national golf tour for amateurs.

Folks don't miss out on this opportunity. If you love golf and ever wondered what all the fuss about tournament golf is, then this tour is for you. We just released the 2024 schedule and it is a beast. There's 21 events currently in the metropolitan St. Louis area with many more to come. But check out these golf courses, Payne's Valley, Ozark National, Stonewolf, Breyer, Persimmon Woods, Gateway National, and a 36 hole event on Norwood's West course and many more. Okay, so the courses are certainly cool and nice. But what's really neat is the way the events are run and how they are run. The APT team does a fantastic job of closely monitoring handicaps and ensuring a good and fair competition. There are five divisions, a year long points competition, major championships, elevated events, and much, much more. Right now there are over 6,000 members in 41 different local chapters across the country.

And all that's happened in just over five years. Join now and don't miss out on the best tournament golf in the country run for amateurs by amateurs themselves. Go to amateur players tour.com. That's amateur players tour.com. This is the front nine presented by the Ascension Charity Classic.

$37,000. It was Nick Dunlop. In his very first event, he can say he finished DFL.

Right. And Danny, he finished DFL by two strokes. So a cushion and he made $37,000. And he didn't turn pro until after winning. So he bypassed some of the money there that could have been going into his pocket. Now you'd have to say by him going pro, he probably made out like a bandit, which is a great story with promotions, what he'll rep, all those kinds of things that come his way. No doubt. I bet you his contractual stuff's worth over 10 million bucks.

Amazing. He's the first amateur in 31 years to go out there and win on the PGA Tour. And it's hard to win on a PGA Tour. And this kid just stood up there. I loved what his caddie said to him.

He had about a five and a half footer on 18. And his caddie looked at him and said, this putt's so easy your mama could make it. I know. The waste management taking place this weekend. And I know as a fan and as a competitor in that, you love this tournament.

I did. I love the golf course. I'm a fan of Tom Weiskopf golf courses in general. He designed the golf course there with Jay Morsch. He also designed Country Club of St. Albans, Lewis and Clark. Of course, he also designed Trune Country Club. I don't know if you've played there. So I'm a fan. I'm really a fan of Tom Weiskopf.

He's a very interesting kind of a thought, I would say thoughtful kind of designer because Danny, one of the most perfect holes in the world is the 17th hole in waste management. So it's after the rock and roll party, which is a blast. It was way more fun when we used to have the caddie races.

We'll get into that in a moment. Yeah, caddie blew out his ankle. Anyway, so you go to 17 and Danny back in the day in 92, I was playing in the last group. I had a one stroke lead starting the last day and I wound up finishing third or something.

Mark Calcavecchia. This is just for the folks that play in their club championship and think they know what competition's like. I was one under par for my round on Sunday after six holes. We ran into a log jam on the seventh.

Someone had lost the ball and got a ruling. And so there were six groups sitting on there. So we sat and we sat and that was terrible for me. But anyway, Mark Calcavecchia, Mark Calc, Calcavecchia played the last 11, the last 12 holes, nine under.

That one's got to hurt a little bit. Thanks for coming. Yeah, thanks for coming. It was it was amazing. But what I was going to say is we stood up on 17. And we all had it was Mark Calcavecchia, Jim Thorpe and I in the last group.

And we all had drivers in our hands. And we all three hit the green. But Danny, you miss it. Two feet left there. And it's in the water. And you can chip it in the water. You see guys so that but but it's also a 330 yard hole where you're like, I got to birdie this thing.

One of the things that stood out to me, we'll get back to the waste management in just a moment. But in watching the Ascension charity classic is how much you stand and have to wait between shots. It's not like playing with your buddies on the weekend. And you go right to your ball and away you go. And TV doesn't do it justice because they're cutting shot to shot shot. You guys are waiting a good five or 10 minutes sometimes between shots.

Yeah. And you really have to be prepared for that. And when one of the things that's hard for me to go back every year is I don't play tournament golf anymore. So that that waiting, it can get you, you know, I mean, it just gets you thinking or can get you out of rhythm or out of your sequence.

So you really got to be prepared for it. So what I like to do is hell if you're standing around, just come over to the ropes and talk to you. You did something.

Yeah. We'll just go like, Hey man, what's going on? I tried to walk away from you. Cause I felt bad that you would come and talk to a patron. I was like, Jay, go, go focus on the goal. I was, Oh no, that's not for me.

I, so that's one, one of the things that people don't understand in terms of concentration, it's not four or four and a half or five and a half straight hours of concentration. It's in and out in and out when it's, when it's your turn, it's like, boom, you, you get into your routine and you're doing your things. And then in between it's, it's a free for all. There's a lot of wacky conversation going on. Night 16th is the part three.

Fantastic. It's got the Coliseum set up with the seating and people are going nuts. It's a fun time. There's a lot happening nowadays. There's a lot of naked people. There's a lot of liquid beverages consumed, thrown, probably regurgitated the whole thing. It's, it's a lot teeny.

It's four layers high. It is so awesome. Yeah. And every year I get on the TV and my, it'll happen again today.

Well, it's already happened. Cause yesterday a guy sent me screenshots of their TV. Cause they take the plaques. There's a, there's a monument there. That's got all the guys that have made hole in one. I think there's 11, right?

I don't know. I don't know how many, but I can tell you that there's one sitting right here. One lucky guy next to me. I think tiger made, I don't, I don't know. I don't even remember what year might've been 91 or 93.

He made his in like 95, but it was, it was a spectacle, man. Tell the story. What happened with you? You drop in the hole in one. Yeah. So I'm standing on 16 and I'll never forget, you know, the way we grew up was very similar. And when we played golf, you know, we've played by the rules, but not necessarily the etiquette. So it was ready golf. And also there was a little chirping going on while you're swinging. So this kind of hole doesn't bother me at all.

You know, I kind of like it. So are you standing up there? And I remember teeing my ball up. It was a nine iron. I had like 145 yards and I hear this guy behind me say, who the hell is this guy?

And that's not exactly what he said. And his friend goes, I don't know, but I'll bet you a five bucks. He misses a green. Well, yep. So he stood up there and Pearly was, was not getting for me, but he's right behind me. And I hit this shot and it just, you know, what can you say? It just, it was a good shot. And they got lucky to go in the hole. You know, it could go one inch away and you go, that's a great shot.

It goes in hole at luck. So I turn around to see who are these guys are. And I just get doused to beer shower, you know, and the, the crowd it's neat because even though it's only 150 yards, it there takes, it takes time for the sound of the crowd to get back to you. So the guys over here start jumping up and down.

The people are on the green star jumping. It's just bedlam. And my caddy says to me, Hey, look, dude, you want a car? Can I have it? And I look over and there's a car in a T and this was Saturday.

And I said, hell no, you can't carry the bag and good luck in the caddy. Don't worry about my car now. So I'm thinking that's pretty cool.

I want a car. So the people are cheering and we're walking, the car is kind of facing towards the green. And so we walk and I turn back and look at the car and on the windshield, there's a little three by five placard that says Sunday only. Yeah. Ouch.

That's chicken. We're going to talk more about 16 at waste management. We're going to make the turn.

That's Marcon, official sponsor of the Golf with Jay Delsing show. This is Golf with Jay Delsing.

We're halfway home and it's time to make the turn. Let's get back to Jay and Dan. Making the turn on Golf with Jay Delsing. I'm Dan McLaughlin. That's Jay Delsing on this Sunday morning. It is Super Bowl Sunday, but we're talking golf, in particular, waste management.

I want to get into number 16, one of the most famous holes in golf. If you've been watching it this weekend, it is fun. But part of this was the caddy races.

You briefly mentioned that. The caddy races were a part of this. They were so much fun. I mean, this is back when, you know, I guess we weren't as smart as we were.

We weren't as socially plugged in. But yeah, the caddies are basically carrying around somewhere between a 35 and 50 pound refrigerator on the back of their, you know, double straps or single, it was only single straps back in the day. And they basically stand on the end of the back tee and go on your mark, get set, go.

And the three caddies would haul booty up towards the green and whoever touched the green first won. Well, someone blew out an ankle. And that was it for that. And they had to run through part of partial desert, you know, there's footprints and all that in there.

So, but I mean, what was it two, three years ago, Danny, where Harry Higgs and Joel Damon took off their shirts. And oh, yeah, how about that dove in and had a little fun. How about that? Yeah.

So I actually think it's fantastic. I wouldn't be surprised if they do another hole. You know what I mean? It just did something to make it interesting.

I was going to ask you about that. If you believe that the PGA Tour on every stop needs to have a par three that's like it. I'm not saying you can duplicate what they're doing. But like at the ascension, you have the skyboxes and there's fans going nuts and cheering you on and j j. You know, unbelievable. That's what you want.

You want this to be entertainment. And I do wonder if the PGA Tour Why? I just wonder why they haven't done this with other stops on tour. It's interesting because the tour didn't do this. Phoenix did it. And they had such a party. I mean, it was a party.

Danny, I'll never forget. I think the year that I was playing in the last group, I was one of the last players to leave on Saturday night. There were more cars coming in on Saturday night than were there for the tournament.

The numbers last year were 750,000. It's great. It's good for the game. Yeah, think of the money that they raise in the Valley of the Sun down there.

It's incredible. Do you think by them watching though on 16? What happens that they need to loosen guidelines for fans? We're seeing it would live. But does that need to happen?

And I'm not saying playing loud music the whole time, but having more fan interaction like they have on 16. I think so I think it's a miss in general. So here's the problem with our game.

Danny, we are stooped in a lot of really good tradition. But some of it's no good anymore. For example, you can go in and buy a $20 pair of Dockers that are going to get you into every single club, Augusta National included.

And you could go and wear buy a $400 pair of jeans. And I get it exactly. And the music thing has got to change as well. I think you've got to remember we're outside now.

And if you're playing in a tournament, you're playing your club championship, and it's been a player does. That's fine. That's different. On a Tuesday afternoon, you and I are out playing who's a last year we jammed to Dave Matthews. That's all we did all summer. Yeah, yeah. So I mean, there's always music on you bought me that fabulous Bushnell. Man, it's got everything.

It does everything but hit a shot for you. Really? That was for me. Yeah, I just knew you would use it. Oh, good.

It's my favorite. My first thing when I go out is to make sure it's charged. Yep.

You know, and now all the carts have the the USB ports in them. So but we've got to figure out a way to get the younger person, the younger sports fan engaged in keep them engaged. We got to keep that that interest up our record our numbers are off the charts right now.

Now we have to see what kind of job we can do to keep them because you're going to turn people off by saying you can't play music and it's almost like saying don't have fun. Right? I think live is caught on on the television product by showing shot after shot after shot and the PGA Tour players have talked about this where they're not showing enough of the action on the game broadcast or the the round the telecast. I think there's some truth to that.

I think that's one thing that live is done well. Yeah, I still say they haven't figured out how to put it together in a package. You know what I mean? But you do you're getting to see a lot of golf.

It's almost a little disjointed because it moves a little fast. And without any reference points. We haven't seen these golf courses before we don't there's no people around. You don't know where you are.

You know what I mean? You could tell john rump. That's john rump. But you know, john rump may not start on number one today, right?

john rump saw number 12. But that's only his third hole. And now we got DJ who's on number seven. They happen to be tied for the lead. But DJ has got, you know, three holes to play.

It's just there's a lot more to take in on their on their broadcast. It's got to be I popping for john rump to go on a live tour stop and have a handful of people watching him as opposed to 10 deep on every hole to watch him play 100% he was he did a couple of shows this past January and I listened to them all and it was really interesting on what he said. He said one of the biggest reasons that he went to live first of all, they kept slapping ridiculous amounts of money up until finally he said, of course, it's the money. I did so much money. But he also said, there were there were two huge factors besides the money.

And then money was number one. Yeah. He's got five, he's got a lifetime exemption into Augusta. He's got a five year exemption into the US Open. So he believes within the next five years, this will all come full circle. That's what he believes he that was crucial in him, because the win at the US Open D gets him in the other majors for the next five, maybe even seven years.

So but I mean, here's how about this? Joaquin Neiman won the first live event last week, we should give him some props 59 had no idea where he was. He's walking up the last hole and they said if you're birdie 18, you shoot 58. He's like what he didn't even know how many under par it was.

He knew he's playing well. He wins, got a two shot penalty between Saturday and Sunday's round because he took a wrong drop, which at least he didn't get disqualified like the old rules of golf. But Danny, I don't think he's eligible for any majors. No, he's not. He's zero majors after putting up that round.

And that's what's disappointing it is. And did you know, I was also reading that. Oh, is it Jose Artis wrote the he's a live player did a really interesting article. He was told that by year three, Greg Norman guaranteed world golf rankings. Yep.

To the original guys. And that's one of the things john ron pointed out to World Golf Rake rankings. He said he wants to play in Spain, but he wants to play on certain stops on the PGA Tour. Yeah. And if it all comes together, he's gonna get his wish. Yep. And it's interesting on what this is going to look like because now the tour's done this equity piece from PGA Tour Enterprises. It's a mess. It's an absolute mess, Danny. It might take us four hours to break that down.

But I just don't I just don't know what this is all going to look like. But the tours come up with some concocted, crazy way of rewarding the guys that stayed on the PGA Tour. What they're trying to do is offset more guys leaving. That's Jay delsing. I'm Dan McLaughlin. This is PGA tours, news and notes that's coming up on golf with Jay delsing. Hey, Jay delsing here.

Super Bowl Sunday, we're talking golf this morning, getting ready for football. Yeah, they tie in. Of course they do.

Of course they do. Lives in Vegas. We got the waste management right down the road in Scottsdale. Man, and then we got Super Bowl. We got a lot of good TV on. I think Liv tried to use the Super Bowl as a bump.

Oh yeah. I think it's strategic in playing out in Vegas. I think they're smart.

I do too. I don't think they've, I'll be honest, and I would tell you if, because you know I'm not a fan. I'm not a fan of Normans, the whole thing, but I would tell you if they haven't done a lot of smart things yet. I mean, one of the things, they still don't have golf, world golf rankings, which Greg Norman promised his players in year three that have world golf rankings. There's no way to rank a tournament of only 50, 48 players.

Now they're 54. It's loose. We don't know how you're going to replenish the tour with younger players.

Up until a couple of months ago, they didn't even have a system on how you're going to get in there. So the business side of this thing is really, it really lacks. Okay. Let's get into business side PGA tour enterprises. This came out this past week.

What do you know from it? So 194, 93 players are going to be compensated through a new entity called PGA tour enterprises, which the Fenway group, which is a very heady group of business savvy sports leaders from the owner of the Milwaukee Brewers to Mark Antanasio. Yep. Yeah.

Fenway sports group. There's eight, John Henry, John Henry's involved. There's 8 billion.

So they gave, they gave, we'll get back to that in a minute. Okay. PGA tour, $1.5 billion.

Okay. 600 million is going to stay behind and not be allocated in this system where they've tried to create you in what you've done as a player, what you're doing as a player. I'm not, I mean, it's really turns out to be extremely fortunate for some of the guys that are playing right now as compared to our buddy, Adam long, who last year lost his tour card and is probably out. How do you figure out the tour players in that? I don't know. I have no idea. So Danny, the first group is going to be 36 players and they're going to split.

Check this out. $750 million. Now, I don't know how much Jack gets and I don't know how much tiger gets and I don't know how much Rory gets, but if you just want to take those three, everybody else can whatever they could scramble for whatever's left. Why doesn't Jay Delson get a cut?

You played almost 30 years on the PGA tour. Anybody that made a cut, anybody that has a stake in this. I don't, I don't know. I, no one's even contacted us.

I'm, I'm getting information just from friends that are going through there. I mean, I, I, there, there's some kind of legacy people that are going to be grandfathered into this. Davis love a good buddy there. It's probably going to get some money. Um, how do you not give Johnny Miller money? How do you not give Hale Irwin, St. Louis and Hale Irwin Lee Trevino, but so it's, it's odd. So there's, there's amounts of money and categories and it goes from the third top 36 to the next 64, I believe either 54 or 64 and that group gets to split a hell of a lot less money than that. But it's, it just, it just dwindles down kind of almost like a tour purse.

So I think someone's listening right now and going, now, wait a minute. Jack Nicholas gets a part of this. Why would he get a part of it as opposed to, as I said before, any player they played on the PGA tour and help grow the game? Because they're saying they had a much more prominent, they're a legend.

Yeah, I know. But still when's the cutoff for what you are as a legend and not great. How do you decide and who's the 194th player? That's a great question too.

And then what is, and so he's got zero. I mean, it's, there's just a lot of questions. It's another one of these things, Danny, to me, that seems like you're trying to reward people made choices. Okay. You went to live. Great. Go to live.

You stayed great. Don't take the money. Why? I mean, it's almost like another participation trophy. I think a lot of the guys on live and participating like a John Rom expect to be back in some form or fashion on the PGA tour. We touched upon it earlier, but it just seems like they feel that things will shake out the right way where they get their money.

So they get their cake and eat it too. I agree. And I was expecting, I was expecting a deal with the PIF at least on the same footing as with the Fenway sports group. That's what I was expecting.

And that did not happen. There is no way in hell that I'm not sure what he called his excellency or his eminency or something like that. Whatever that guy's name is Yasser.

We'll just call him Yasser since we're on first name basis together. He's pissed. There's no doubt. He's left out. He's left out again.

And I'm just going to say this, go on the record to say this. There's no way to do golf moving forward without him. At what point do you think the casual fan, even a golf fan says, that's it, I'm done watching. My best guys are gone.

I have all these kids I've never heard of. They're leading tournaments and I don't even know who they are. I think there's some that would say I'm done. I think there are other viewers and lovers of the game of golf that'll say, don't care. I'm still watching great golf. I'm giving, I'm giving my buddy Anthony a shout out at Dean team.

I'd love the Dean team. And these guys are great. And I had my car service last week and he said to me, I was waiting for my card. He came in and he goes, you got a minute?

I said, sure. What's up? He goes, I got to tell you, you lost me.

Golf lost me. I'm he's like, I love the game. I'm going to play every time I can, but he goes, I'm not watching it anymore.

I don't know what the hell's going on. I said, he goes, it really seems to me like you got a bunch of millionaires, bitching and complaining and, and all of this stuff when they have no right to be, you know, it's hard to argue. Yeah.

It's really hard to argue. All right. Speaking of the Dean team, we're going to tip our cap quickly. The tip of the cap is going to go to last weekend's golf expo here in St. Louis.

Absolutely. Dean team, Volkswagen to Kirkwood three one four nine six six zero three zero three. Our buddy Colin burnt.

Thank you for the support guys. You need any sort of vehicle. Collins. Got it.

I know it says Volkswagen. He can get you anything. We're tipping our cap to the St. Louis golf expo. Um, Dick Stevens and his team over there did a nice job at the St. Charles convention center. You and I went out there a couple of times. There's just a lot of really cool, um, for, you don't even have to be a complete golf nerd to kind of geek out there for a couple hours. You know, they've got, you know, get yourself a nice Bud Light Ultra that, and, um, just to walk around looking at some of the different innovations and you know, we're going to get our, our buddy, uh, Gary DeSalvo on the show with Poptacles. He's really cool.

New eyewear for golf. So, um, yeah. And we said the amateur players tour was something.

It was a lot of fun. All right. That's brought to you by the Dean team. That is our tip of the cap. We're going to answer some emails coming up.

Golf with Jay Delsing on a Sunday morning every Sunday 9 to 10 here on 101 ESPN. All right, partner, are you ready to answer some e-mails? I love this.

This is kind of an organically grown segment. Folks, thanks so much for reaching out and asking these questions. It's turned into a lot of fun. One of the questions that we get all the time, we actually had two from Gary and Tim about hitting the ball further. What can you do to do that?

So guys, it's this really simple math equation. You've got to have speed. You need speed to hit it further.

People ask me that all the time. I want to hit it further. It's more than swinging fast. It definitely helps if you can figure out a way to increase your swing speed. There's training that you can do that, but most golfers aren't going to do that.

But there are ways. You make your technique better. You get your body more flexible and stay in the positions that you need to stay in. And you're going to be able to get that club face on the ball more solidly, more frequently, and smash it. And folks, as you get older, start looking into, they're calling them senior flexes.

Start looking into shafts that are a little softer, but are made more for your specific swing speed because that'll help you add distance as well. Steve said, J-Bird, he called you J-Bird. He hears us say, I always say J-Bird, Gia. He said, I played on Friday. I was hitting through the clumpy wet ground of St. Louis. And he said he wasn't playing where he played the ball up.

So he was playing it down. Wow. Yeah. That's hardcore.

You're getting that. That's some tough shots. That is some tough shots.

How do you play those though? If they're down in the ground like that and you're not going to get a ruling where you can pop it up and clean it off and then place it. So what are you trying to do? Well, it just depends on how far away you are. I mean, if you're out there 200 yards away and you're down in this clumpy stuff, good luck. Because it's going to, the biggest challenge there is how do you get club on that ball? And so the first thing you got to do is try to get a little more angle, so a little steeper, more up and down. So on your backswing, you're going to lift the club up a little bit. And on your downswing, you're going to hit almost directly down on the back of the ball where you know how you'll typically sweep a little bit, you'll start catching grass a few inches behind the ball, just the top of the grass and then the ball and then turf after you got to get a little steeper. And then you got to put some loft on your club. You're going to have to get, so if you, so let's say you go, you got to go down and get this shot that's stuck in the clumpy stuff. You're going to go take it, even though you may not be able to hit your eight iron, the distance it's required for the shot, you take your eight iron, you get a little steep on it.

It'll take a little of the loft off. And the problem is, we don't get any rolled this time of year. So your ball's going to, your ball's going to plop up. But the main thing is get it out of that junk so that you're not spending two or three or four swings trying to relieve yourself from this, whatever this condition is. Cause it sucks, you know, so we got to get it out, get it back in the fairway where you can at least get a good club on the ball. So it's cold too.

You're not going to get a lot of carry either. D this is what I tell people all the time. They're like, Oh, this weather is great. And it is great. I mean, 70 degree day on Friday. Come on.

That was awesome. But our butts have been on the couches. We have not played much golf. We hadn't seen much sun forgot.

We are pale right now here in the Midwest and the golf courses are in just not their top condition. So they're going to be playing long and don't forget about the wind. How much wind was blowing well, that is leading me to this question. This is from Mike windy conditions on Friday. Did you enjoy playing in windy conditions at all? Or does anybody ever enjoy windy conditions?

I think it's a mindset. So what I used to do, Danny, whenever, like I can remember the first tournament that we'd go from warm weather to cold and man, you should have heard the locker room, all the southerners were complaining. And I was like, good, good, man.

I'm ready. I'm going to be make it colder, you know, just because I don't necessarily like the cold. But if I'm going to be here, you know, I want to try to take it on and see what see what I can do about it. So the wind was another thing. The wind is tough. Because when it blows a certain once it gets in that 30 mile per hour range, it affects your pots, it affects your chips, your pitches, everything.

So it's really difficult. But hell this Friday, we hadn't been played when's the last time we've been on the golf course months, it's been months. And so it was just great to be out. My expectations are really, really low. It's it was fun to hit some shots, hit some real stinkers to, you know, some putts came off of my putter.

I was like, No, that's not gonna be any good. But I mean, you know, that's all part of the process of working our way back a couple minutes to go. This is Bernard and he said, Jay saw you at the golf show, the golf Expo didn't want to bother you. But was there anything that stood out for you as you worked on your game and saw some of the different items that were offered to golfers? Yeah, so interesting Wilson and I saw my old friend Dave Kircher he they've got an AI system that puts you through this hitting and spits out a program for you and tells you exactly what what stuff you need. And I thought that was fascinating.

So I went through that with him. There's also these things called perfect hands that we saw Mario and his team going through and I'm I'm on the fence still on this product, but it is very interesting. It's about increasing speed, but also trying to get the golfer into the correct impact, right at the ball. So I love that.

And then like I mentioned earlier, Gary de Salvo with popsicles. They've got these cool golf glasses, they've got the best folks the best sunglass lens possible. Here's another thing that people may not realize the when you're when you're wearing sunglasses to play golf, do not do not use Polaroids glasses, you'll get distortion and you won't know where the ground is. That's what I've been. That's the reason but it's really true. It's really true. So if folks and just send me an email and I'll fill you in on this but you got to check out popsicles we're going to get Gary and Dana his wife on the show and talk about this stuff but you don't want Polarized because it will distort your your depth perception.

It's it's true. So we're back to an hour nine to 10. Always enjoy with the J. D. Thanks for doing it with me and it was great St. Louis.
