The 19th Hole Golf Show: Reviewing the World Am and my return to tournament golf, featuring Mitch Laurance

Courtesy: Patrick Koenig (I actually fanned this shot horribly, but it makes me look like a real golfer.)


This episode is all about my experience playing the Myrtle Beach World Amateur Handicap (Not For Me) Championship. I talk through the process of getting back into competitive golf, the nerves, the breathing, the whole process. I recap some of the highs and lows from four competitive rounds in the Grand Stand, including a massive downpour, a super round at Grande Dunes, getting my game back and meeting 12 really fun playing partners over four rounds.

Grand Strand native Mitch Laurance joins me in the second half of the show to talk about his experience finishing fifth in his flight at the World Am. He also digs into the pride of the region in hosting this event, as well what he took away from playing three of four rounds with new Ben Hogan Golf irons and Knuth Golf woods.
