E16 David & Julien From Club Champion Vegas

Episode 16 – The Tiny Roundish Table

We welcome to the podcast and the tiny rectangular table, David Rhoden and Julien Munoz from Club Champion Las Vegas.

club champion

These two gentlemen work alongside each other for eight hours a day and have a fantastic friendship. You would think after spending that much time together and being so involved in the game of golf, sitting down to chat golf after-hours would be a deal-breaker. Lucky for us, they are just as passionate outside te fitting bays as they are inside them. Before we knew it, almost three hours of banter and hijinks had gone by in what seemed like minutes.

We absolutely loved having David and Julien sit down with us. Their insight into the industry and the fitting world is so valuable and we plan on having them on again, as you’ll be able to tell, it was too much fun.

They both have a great story on how they got into the industry and where they want to go from here. And, they are both solid, and I mean SOLID sticks! If you’re thinking it’s time to get fit to improve your game then you should certainly reach out to either David or Julien through the links below and get it set up. It is such a valuable asset to improve your score. And there isn’t two guys I could personally recommend more than them.

E15: Cyrus Janssen PGA Professional

Episode 15:

PGA Professional Cyrus Janssen

In this episode, the former golf head professional from Sheshan Golf Club in Singapore, China (home to this week’s WGC HSBC Event)  joins us for some outstanding golf conversations!

Cyrus Janssen, or more notably known in the Instagram world as @cyruspga, has some incredible insight into golf in China. He also just so happens to be the front runner for the nicest human on the planet award. Cyrus has become friends with us over on the blog, and we’ve even tee’d it up in one of his most recent stays in Vegas.

Hailing from Vancouver, Britsh Columbia, our friendly Candian neighbor to the North, has some incredible insight into the global world of golf. After spending ten years in China, he now calls Canada his home and is growing his legacy as an entrepreneur bringing business from the two sides of the world together.

Sheshan Golf Club

The majority of our conversation dealt with his time in China. At the young age of 25, Cyrus Janssen became the Head Pro at Sheshan, and it’s a fantastic story.

Thanks to all of you for being patient!

Thanks to Joe from Hittin Greens for calling in and leaving a message for Cyrus. We had a little bit, well we had more than a little bit, we had some serious technical difficulties. That’s what happens when you go so long between episodes!

We back, though, and ready to get this train rolling again! Thanks to everyone for the words of encouragement over the last several weeks. We love what we are doing here at this show and can’t wait to bring you more exciting guests like Cyrus Janssen!

The Chasing Daylight Ball Marker

We’re excited to announce the Limited Edition Chasing Daylight Ball Marker!

Thanks to the fantastic crew at Atomic Golf we’re bringing our very first ball marker release. For this one, we decided to keep it clean and simple but still add in a little flare. Atomic Golf has had a few releases of their own with a minted version, and we LOVED them!

With the minted version it adds a level of detail that is absent from a milled ball marker. Don’t get me wrong. We’re a massive fan of the milled ones, and we have plans for the release of that type as well. However, I’ve fallen madly in love with a minted ball marker. The look and feel are incredible, and we think you will fall in love as well.

Ball Marker

For this limited run, we’ll have 30 available.

You can purchase one now by going to The Breakfast Ball Web Store. This release is selling for $35 (plus shipping), and when they are gone, they are gone. The only other way you’ll be able to obtain one in the future is by being a guest on the show!

We have more releases like this planned in the coming months. We intend to work with some of the vendors who have supported us on this new adventure as well as brands which we’ve supported throughout the years.

Again, thanks to Joel and his team for helping make this first release a success! We hope you pick on of these up and enjoy it as much as we do!

E14: Vegas PGA Show & The Tour Championship

Episode 14: 

Vegas PGA Show

We didn’t get a chance to talk about the Vegas PGA Show since it happened, so before we dived into the Tour Championship banter, we covered a little bit about the show. What it is, what it isn’t, and how we feel about the event. There’s room for growth and Ryan had a fantastic idea to help get the unique, and smaller boutique brands involved.

The Tour Championship

Honestly, this could have been the entire episode. There is some much debate going on about the new format, and we wanted to have our opinions voice. Hence this episode. There are a ton of reactions from a lot of people out there, and we were fortunate enough to have two of the more prominent names in social media chime in with their own opinions.

@PGAMemes and @Bryangolf both left us a voice mail (702-518-1864 USE IT!), and we listened, then talked about their views on how the Tour Championship could be better and if it should be better.

For me, it’s all about Match Play for the finals. Ryan agrees, and so do a lot of other people. Ryan and I both want to thank Travis and Brian for calling in and being a part of the show. We love it when people call in, so keep those messages coming.

The President Cup

Not much to talk about here but we did bring it up since it is the biggest event on the future calendar of golf.

Ryan’s Easter Eggs

Hold up!! I’m taking over this week. As a show of appreciation, we are giving away one of the new Chasing Daylight T-Shirts you can find on The Breakfast Ball WEBSITE.

E13: PGA Show Interviews from Vegas

Episode 13, PGA Show Interviews from Las Vegas

This was fun, so much more than I thought it would be. I was a little nervous about how the audio would come out, but that’s is why you invest, heavily at times, in solid equipment!

PGA Show, Vegas Style

Every year in mid-August the PGA Show spends a couple of days here in Vegas. There’s been an evolution of this show and I feel like it is still trying to find its place in the industry. However, Sherry Major and her team are making great strides to have this show be something to attract buyers and sellers from all over. The fashion shoe at TAO nightclub I heard was amazing and I will not miss it next year, and the Demo night at TopGolf was the best it’s been in the three years it has been held there. I’m still not a fan of the balls you have to hit but, it is what it is.

We had a blast walking the floor of the show at the Venitian and at the last minute, I decided to grab our audio recorder and bring it along. I’m so grateful I did. The audio came out great and we got some great content from several of our favorite brands.

A big thank you for taking some time to chat with us!

Cody and Blake from TRUE Linkswear. Jeff and Todd from Dormie Workshop. Ty and his amazing team at Greenside Cigars and Matt from Asher Golf. We really appreciate you all taking some time to chat about your brands during the PGA Show. We can look forward to seeing from all of you in the future!

E12: Rohrs from Strokes Gained Customs

Neal “Rohrs” Rohrbach joins Matt and Ryan for some golf chat

One thing I knew we were going to love about this podcast was when our friends get to join us. I consider Neal to be one of my closest friends, and it was a blast to have him on the show.

You may recall, if you follow the blog, Neal has had one hell of a year. Back in February, we published an article that Neal had written [Strokes Gained; The Story of My Iceberg] and it was meet with tremendous support. Now, however, Neal is back on track and firing up the machines once again. As he gets back to doing what he loves, some much, we honored, he took some time to chat with us.

Making Putters and putting smiles on the faces of his customers

In this episode, we learned something that was a complete surprise to both of us. Neal started Strokes Gained to fill the void Cameron left behind when he stopped using Carbon Steel. There was a significant enough demand from golfers who still love the soft feel, and the custom finishings. Neal was eager to fill their needs. Take those wants and desires and place them with Neals passion and history in the industry, and you have a winning combination.

It was a blast getting Rohrs on the phone and let him let it loose on the golf industry. Giving him a format to drop quotes like: “You know I’m gaming an EvnRoll” made the entire interview priceless.

E11: An Interview with John from Ampcaddy

The Ampcaddy Bluetooth Speaker

We are all familiar with the popular trend happening in the golf world. Music on the course. While some find it utterly obtrusive and unacceptable, there is a growing number of golfers who love the concept of music on the course.

Please don’t think we are advocating the jerks out there who blast the music disrupting everyone around them. There’s a level of civility that needs to be maintained if you enjoy playing your music playlist while golfing. For the most part, the people we have encountered who play music have been respectful and understand this trend is something that needs to be cared for as it matures. You’re not going to change the golfing world by being a pompous ass and forcing your way into the game.

Meet John, the man behind the birth of Ampcaddy

John has a great story of how he came to be a player in this music on the course niche. In this episode, John joined Matt for some candid behind the scenes information on how Ampcaddy started, and what the future holds for them.

Ampcaddy

Music on the course is a love it or hate it type of experience. John has some fantastic insight into the golf speaker space. He shared with us how he got started with Ampcaddy, his background with golf, and why he has the knowledge to grow this business.

With the good, there comes some bad

Unfortunately, there was some lousy press thrown in the direction of Ampcaddy. We thought it would be an excellent opportunity for John to share his thoughts on what happened with MyGolfSpy. We let him explain why he feels they could be doing so much more with the platform they have. If you’re looking for a hate speech on why MyGolfSpy is an awful company, don’t listen. John is very respectful and made it clear he has more things to concern himself with than some social media posts.

He has a reputable company that is producing a fantastic product that is only getting better with time. When you take into consideration his background in golf and the audio industry, we hope you’ll get a better understanding of how poor a decision it was for MyGolfSpy to attack them.

E10: An interview with PGA Memes

Episode 10, The hilarious PGA Memes

We did it! Our first milestone for the Chasing Daylight Podcast, our tenth episode.

What a better way to toast this occasion than having one of the hottest Instagram Golf Accounts join us for an interview. Travis, the man behind the madness at @pgamemes, hopped on the phone and gave us a little insight into what started the wildly popular account and what’s it’s like running the page.

PGA Memes is an account worth following

If you’re not following PGA Memes, do yourself a favor and go follow. Ryan and I both agree the content is hilarious. Most of the time the jabs they put on the Tour guys are exactly what we all are thinking. Travis has a unique sense of humor. He has brilliantly been able to use it grow the account to almost 400,000 followers. That’s just insane to us. It has been incredible to watch the growth on the account and to see the interactions from his following. You want to talk about building a community.

pgamemes

However, pgamemes isn’t the only account for Travis

We’ve all seen the videos, and some of us, mainly Ryan, have been “pranked” by SirHissalot. The wildly entertaining account @hissalot is another brainchild of Travis. It started back in 2014 and has grown to be an account where he doesn’t even need to create content anymore. Fans of the page are consistently sending in videos. Travis let us know he’s planning a revamping of the account and has some plans for 2020 to make it even better than it is now. We can’t wait to see that.

Ryan’s Easter Eggs

It just wouldn’t be an episode if Ryan didn’t have something to give away.

Since pgamemes is partnering with ShortPar4 and has some shirts for sale on their site, we thought it would be fun to give away a ShortPar4 hat.

Here’s all you need to do…..

Listen to the episode and find out! There’s a hint in this post and a link that will assist, but you have to listen to figure out what to do!

E9: The Open Winner, Listeners Phone Calls and More

Episode 9, we chat about The Open Championship and more.

Congrats to you on The Open win Mr. Lowry

The Irsish flags were waving, and so were the Sxrion ones! And oh what a Major it was. In arguably the best put on major overseas that we could remember Royal Portrush flourished on TV and in person from those who were lucky enough to be on the grounds. That means you Joel, you lucky SOB!

The stunning landscape and what this tournament meant to the people of Northern Ireland made it an unforgettable experience. Matt and Ryan briefly cover their thoughts on what took place and how this was the conclusion of the Major season.

No more Majors in 2019

With the conclusion of The Open, we’re now left to wait another 261 days before we see Augusta in early April. With the new season schedule, we have no more majors left on the calendar and only the Tour Championship to look forward to for a high profile event. We are curious how this new schedule will pan out only time will tell. Both Matt and Ryan offer their takes on the new schedule and what this means for the offseason.

Listener Voice Mails

YES, we finally got to these! Matt has been pushing the voice mails for a while now (702-518-1864), and Ryan figured out why in this episode! We took in some great calls, and it provided us with some excellent content for this episode.

The voice mail calls was a great segment! We cannot wait to hear more from all of you. After you listen, you’ll understand why we’re expecting more calls after recording this episode. So get busy!

Something BIG is coming

It may happen in Tahoe, it may feature a fine co-sponsor, and it will be the first event in our new BREAKFAST BALL EVENT SERIES.

Stay tuned for more info in this. We will be heavily promoting it on our social feeds.

Ryan’s Easter Eggs

For this episode, we’re giving away a Garsen QUAD Tour grip to one lucky listener. All you have to do is leave a comment below with what Ryan said, and that’s it!

Up Next

We have a special episode in the works for later this week. The man behind two of the hottest Instagram accounts in the golf niche will join us for a candid, or maybe not so candid interview.

E8: Olson Manufacturing and Corey Paul Functional Art

Episode 8

We are so excited to bring this interview to all of you.

Both of us are fans of the work Corey Paul and Logan Olson have been doing. We’re not just fanboys though; we’re owners as well. Ryan has several pieces from Corey’s Wedge and Iron collections, and he also has an Olson Manufacturing putter. And, Matt has two putters from Olson Manufacturing, most notably the VEGAS58 Putter Logan crafted earlier this year.

Olson Manufacturing

Getting to know these two incredible craftsmen

We’re familiar with the backstory of how both brands came to be, but it was fun to listen to them talk about their passion. Corey and Logan have very different ways in how they came to be in this industry, and it was awesome to hear them tell their stories. Make sure you listen to what they are saying. They nailed so many analogies throughout the episode; it was hard to keep track!

CPFA and Olson Manufacturing Collaborations

Sunday, the dynamic duo, will release another collaboration on the Corey Paul Functional Art website. From the photos we’ve seen on their Instagram accounts, it looks like it’s going to be another fantastic release and we’re pumped to see it hit the site.

Corey Paul Logan Olson

Ryan’s Easter Eggs

Of course, Mr. Giveaway was at it again. Stay tuned to the end to hear what you need to do to grab yourself some free swag.
