With Christmas only weeks away, it’s time to start shopping for the golfers in your life. This week, podcast host Dave Berner talks to TravelGolf.com’s Kiel Christianson about his 2006 list of great gift options for golfers.
“Every year I try to come up with a theme, and it occurred to me that the two golfing demographics that are growing the most are young golfers and women golfers,” he says. “So I tried to look for gifts that would be good to help bring more women and juniors into the game, to help grow the game a little bit.”
In June this podcast profiled Caddychicks.com, an online booking service where golfers can hire, well, a caddy chick. The company’s founder, Mike Trahan, is back to talk about two new services: a Caddychicks golf tour and a video highlighting the Caddychick of the month.
“I don’t see anything in the future for something like Caddychicks gone wild,” Trahan says. “It’s been bantered around here a little bit, but that’s not what we’re all about. It really is about getting more women involved in the game, and if we can make it fun for them, and fun for the golfers, that’s what we want to do.”
Jim Hardy, a golf instructor and best-selling author, talks about lessons from his book The Plane Truth for Golfers, now available on DVD.
“I have a few things in the book that is new information,” Hardy says. “But for the most part, what the book is really all about – and what the DVD series that came out of it is all about - is for the first time we have a chance to take all the cards in the deck and sort them into the appropriate piles. Unfortunately, there is a third pile of information, and I call that useless information.”
“Royal Vista is one of those places that I have incredibly fond memories of,” Wolfrum says. “It was at Royal Vista where I made my first par, and made my first birdie. And it was at Royal Vista where I scored a six on a par 4, with my putter. It was also there where I hit the greatest shot of my golf career.”
