"Which I think changes up the set design. Simply because color is often quite a rich tool for storytelling, it can tell you a lot about character and location. So I was really interested to find out what this means or what happens when you take that out the equation. She goes into depth about the level of detail and imagination and creativity that comes with trying to get into a character's mind to dress a set with an idea of what someone might have been doing. That's maybe not referenced in the script directly, but help decorate a space and tell you a lot about who they are, how they spend their time, do they enjoy picking things up? Are they someone who keeps their space nice and clean? All these small details, which really help enhance an actor's performance and bring a story to life. Well, it sounds like, honestly, the most fun job in the world, but I'm sure it's a very creative and occasionally stressful job too. Let's hear from Jan Pascal now with this report that mainly put together earlier this year. It's awesome well. Of course. I think it's time we talk. What is it writer says? Tell the story you know. When I was first starting out, I met this wonderful set decorator who said to me, you know, you have about ten seconds to tell the audience where they are. And that sort of stays with me through my whole career. You know, we really have just a moment. You need to know where you are when the cameras turned in that direction. Have I told you anything about this character? That's one of the joys of what we as set decorators are privileged to do is to help tell that story quickly. I guess it becomes almost second nature that you're analyzing what's the key? What is the one thing or several things that will really help tell the story of who this character is or what their about or what period even that we're in to help support that? You know, that's really the excitement is to try to piece all that together. Tell me a little bit about the ranch house. So this is a house at the edge of the Californian desert, where our lead character Hermann mankiewicz is arranged to stain his expected to produce a script in 60 days. Tell me about your approach and bringing this set together. Maybe some of the details you chose to help embellish and set the scene. We were looking at the old photography, the black and white photography. And getting more information from that, you know, we looked at a lot of photos of ranch houses of the time because we knew he was going to be in bed. And what I wanted to try to the story that I was trying to help tell was that almost a third of the movie, I guess he's in his bed and reminiscing. So what does he see? So I would actually like lie in the bed and look left and right and forward to see what is it that he's seeing for all these months that he's sitting here, so we did a lot looking down the hallway so that he could see down toward where he is secretary, misses a was typing. So we had her parked halfway down the hallway, and then we had a room beyond that as if that's where she was staying. So we had some Americana quilts because that was completely foreign to her because she was from the UK, right? We wanted to really play up ranch and Americana, but not sort of bunk you on the head with it. And we had a lot of Monterey furniture which was from central California. We felt that that was really common in the area in ranch houses. There were some chairs that we found that had cactus carved in the back of them and because they were out in the desert. I try to do it with subtle ideas and we filmed the exterior in the place where mank actually wrote the script. And it was a place in Victorville. It was called north verdi ranch, but it's still in the same family. So people would have come and gone, so we sort of did a little bit of collecting of things like antlers and arrowheads and fool's gold and things that you would find in the desert bits of Mesquite and horse tack. Just things that people might have found on their travels and brought into the ranch and left behind chess boards and games and we really tried to create that environment that mank would have been surrounded with. My thanks to the set decorator and production designer Jan Pascal, and of course, to melee Evans as well. We'll be right back with more highlights straight after this.

Welcome back to Monaco on design where I'm joined by Nick manis and now Nick. I know that you are trained as a landscape architect. You remind us of this a lot and you definitely love design and architecture. But this year, you were out doing so many fashion stories. You've become a bit of an expert on British fashion, Scottish fashion, English fashion, traditional shoemaking and T-shirt design from the guys at sun spell. What happened this year? I don't really know. I think your commissioning a lot of these, by the way, we should point out. Maybe this is like actually a personal attack on the way I dress, maybe these were suddenly from you to maybe go kick myself out with something different. But for whatever reason, Scottish fashion stories just kept pulling us in this year. I think maybe when I'm thinking amazing fashion house is amazing fashion brands, I tend to drift towards the continent and cities like Milana and Paris, which certainly have these huge reputations huge fashion weeks, lots of fashion houses located there. But it was almost like one visit sort of I went to beg and co initially earlier in the year and it sort of translates to well, you should go check out the work that they're doing in places like Hawaiian and long Eaton where this package is from. It's from San bell I went and visited them at their factory in long 8 me and Nottingham and it's just one of those ones there seems to be this culture in Scotland and in Scottish fashion around having a really strong connection between the factory flora and the designers, whether the design office is actually adjacent the factory floor or designers are just walking through. There's this really great back and forth between the craftspeople and often generations and generations of craftspeople working hand in hand with designers. And I feel the need to bring Charlie into this conversation as well because I crashed his earliest Charlie. Are you a brief man or a boxer shorts man? Can I ask you that? Briefs all the way. Bracelet the way. Well, you and I wonder if a visit to long agent and two sun spell might have changed that because Nolan were the pioneers of the boxer short in the UK and perhaps the world. And it's certainly opened my eyes up to it, which is, I guess, exciting. Perhaps we should hit the factory floor with Nick minis and hear this package that you produced earlier in the year with the guys at sun spell. Most English cities in the 19th century built their reputation by doing one thing and one thing well. For Nottingham in 1860, the year that Thomas Arthur hill founded British heritage brand sunspel that was making. The son of a hozier, it was only natural that he'll follow his father into the trade before establishing his own factory in the city. Soon renowned for making lightweight and soft clothing, he'll pioneered the development of luxury undergarments with sans spell. A family run business until 2005, this tradition continues today under the direction of CEO, Nicholas Brooke. 8 miles down the road in long Eaton, where the brand moved in 1929. And it's from this location that designers have worked side by side with those on the factory floor, producing fine garments, and in the process popularizing the T-shirt and boxer short in the UK. To understand how this relationship between designing and making plays out, I popped on my boxer short, and some trousers too before heading to long ate them to make David telfer. San bells creative director. So this is our archive room, so it's quite nice that we've got quite a hands on archive. A lot of different fabric swatches that would have been developed on the old knitting machines back from Nottingham. A lot of the old advertising as well, there's definitely been quite a few different brand marks used through the years. And a lot of garments as well. It's quite interesting that most of them are undergarments, but there's some very interesting designs in here, some a bit more quirky, I don't see today, but also some that are really relevant and seen today. Obviously, gone through fashion or in different ways. Do you have a favorite item in the archive? My favorite one is one of these pennies. And it's not a fabric for use now, but it's called silly lock. So it's quite a fabric innovation that in terms of its will on the outside and a cotton mesh on the inside and it would have been used for very early thermals. It's quite interesting design piece. And this is actually just various bits where it's kind of been folded in and kind of stitched back. It's quite an interesting thing you get from working as a manufacturer in terms of they make things in a specific way that would be the most functional way to make something. So I think that's something I quite admire with some of these pieces. They're obviously designed. And then there's a conversation between the person sewing it and the person designing it saying, actually, if you made it like this, then it would be much easier to make or nicer to make nicer finish, which you can definitely see in some of these pieces in the archive. And it's this sort of relationship between designer and maker that continues today. With local production helping to ground the brand in the UK. So we've been in this actual building for over 80 years. Mainly making t-shirts underwear, which gives us a real speciality. I think that's one of the things of UK manufacturers. They tend to specialize in one or two particular things. For sun spell in terms of what we make here today is mainly the T-shirt. And one of the things that really makes it quite special is that we get involved in the whole process. The fabric we're trying to make is lightweight soft and kind of very easy to wear. But it's actually very difficult to work with. And one of the special things here is that they actually they just know how to work with that fabric because we specialized in mainly using that fabric. They're specialists in working with that fabric and making it as beautiful as possible the finishing and detailing around it. The skill level of the ladies and the factories unbelievable for a product that is usually seen as basic or simple. It's kind of anything but when you actually see them working with it. It's a sentiment shared by garment technologist Debbie Smith, who I made on the factory floor. To produce some of the world's finest t-shirts, there's no room for error, which means that not a single step from the hemming to the neck binding, or even pressing is automated. A lot of factors do automated cut in the computerized container. We've just follow all the old fashioned methods, the girls are very skilled in what they do, you'll get complete accuracy. So if this hands on approach, combined with the proximity of the brand's design studio, which sits in a building directly adjacent the factory floor that helps to ensure the quality of sun spells work, with communication between the two quick and effective. As a designer being able to know the people that are making your products and have a dance with them at Christmas parties and different things like that and actually know them intellectual genuine ways is really special because that's quite rare in the industry to design something. You might know the factory, but you don't know them in a more relational way, which is really nice and special. It's another level of detail because it's from getting the fiber through to the knitting through to the dying through to the delivering. So all the small things that happen in a factory in terms of day to day and understanding that. When I design a product, is really unique. It's a very different process to just sending out a sketch to a factory abroad, and it's that that makes it such a special process for me as a designer but also for the whole business that we can be really proud of the product we create here. And judging by sun spells increasing number of beautiful and surprising collaborations, other designers are drawn to this process, too. We tend to want people to come and visit the factory. Firstly, to see the archive and see the history and that elements of that. And then also just to meet everyone down there. We had a great trip before lockdown, Paul well I came down and it was like really lovely day for them but also for him and he just loved the factory and the feeling of it. And as a customer himself, he suddenly saw actually this is genuine. This is where it's made and what it is. And I think there's something about working with artists, both them seeing where we work and also us seeing their studio and how they work and building that relationship becomes a much more special collaboration than an email collaboration, which is fine, but it's not the same kind of emotion to it. When both parties are invested in a collaboration, it definitely becomes something different and special. So what's the outcome of this special production process? Well, if a 160 years of demand for its products, a place in pop culture and a spot in the wardrobe of the discerning is anything to go by, is the ideal way to make quality clothing.

"Protecting the left side kind of forces you to play off of that on your drive. And then it's a really interesting difficult green. It plays a lot more uphill. I think than a lot of people realize for the second shot. So you get off that. And then all of a sudden, you know, it's like you're on a roller coaster on a ski lift. You just snake up this cart path literally through dense forest and you're like, where am I going? What is this, what is this leading to? And the reveal that on 13 T pop out of the Woods and just in front of you is miles and miles of northern Michigan hills of Arthur hill. Arthur sills. And on a clear day, especially on a clear fall day, guys, it's one of the most beautiful spots on a golf course that I've ever been to. And the whole itself is pretty cool. It's a big downhill part 5. And those tee shots, man, they seem like they hang in the air forever. Those three holes in particular I think are my favorite. And then including 12, I guess, those four holes are my favorite. But curious, if you guys have any others or any other comments on the hills? Yeah, Randy. I think 5 spectacular. I don't think it's probably the strategies probably a little bit backwards on it, but intense tens legitimately great awful. I think from 12 onward, it's that par three after par three after the 14. Yeah, 14 is a fantastic little part three. I love the finishing hole. That's how I was gonna say really fun risk reward, finishing hole, drive it as close to the water as you want, and leave yourself kind of this hero, second shot into the par 5 to finish. That was blast. It's hard to place this course, right? It's very different from everything we played on the surface. It just doesn't seem like it would be a golf course that I would feel very strongly about yet I do. I really genuinely enjoy this golf course. And we've played it on previous trips to Randy. You played it dozens of times, Sally and I both played at Niels put it prior as well on previous trips under northern Michigan and I recall it fondly every time and it never lets me down each new time I play it. Which I was nervous nabbing them a little bit more architecture, knowledge going into it am I going to look at this and kind of scoff, but I did not have that experience at all. Something else I like about a course like this is it has distinct sections of the course, which you could argue that can make a course feel disjointed, but Randy said like the first three, four holes, a little bit of a warm up, and then all of a sudden it's these, you know, these pine trees just very iconic, and then it gets very hilly. You know, and then the 18th hole is so different from the 13th hole that we talked about. Just a straightforward part 5 over water. So you just get like different sections of the course keeps you interested throughout the round. All right, next up, we are going to mackinac island and we'll wash them, DJ take us there. Yeah, hard to talk about this golf course without kind of first talking about how to get to this golf course and mackinac island for those that don't know is kind of the distant remote island between the lower Peninsula and the upper Peninsula of Michigan and you have to get there by ferry. There are no motorized vehicles on the island that is within reason. Except for the cars. Except for the golf carts on the golf course, a couple food delivery trucks, et cetera, but you have to take a ferry over to mackinac island, you land, Neil said it maybe absolutely perfectly. It feels like getting off a steamship in San Francisco and like 18 65, 1890, something like that where it's just kind of hot, there's a lot of shit going on, there smells. There's horses going down the road. There's just horses and fudge in the air. Yes, provisions everywhere. You're general stores everywhere. It's Randy kind of warned us for this and we're building to something here. I promise. But that scene right off the ferry at mackinaw is I would say mucho not for me, it kind of feels like the worst parts of Epcot center, Disney World, just a lot of hot just densely populated people walking down the street looking for fudge and that is just not my type of vacation. But once the island clears out, which we kind of got a good sense of in the evening, things lean out a little bit, and then all of a sudden you've got like a bunch of cool restaurants, some really awesome little hotels and B and BS and there's just a ton of people making day trips to the island and a lot of the people who are there overnight as solid unpacks some of his remains. I gotta have my fudge. I would eat some. So much fudge. We can take that on another podcast. Who eats all this? Possibly like 20 fudge shops, and me and brandy are the ones that are eaten at two blocks. Big fudge boys. It was crazy, but the point of all of this is to say that to get to it, we'll wash come on golf course, which is a 9 hole golf course laid out in 1898 by NFL quarterback Alex Smith. You have to take what is it Randy about two two and a half mile horse drawn carriage ride up from kind of this main downtown mackinac area all the way straight up the hill, you've got two, they almost look like small cloud sales, kind of some very proper carriage horses taking you taking you up the hill, winding you through a much more residential part of the island, taking you out of the busy hustle and bustle of downtown out into what is truly one of the most quiet peaceful, awesome settings for golf that I think I've ever seen, which I'll say about the horse drawn carriage. I thought it was like, well, this would be kind of a gimmick and something we can do for the camera going to the course. That was the option. It was the only option. There was no like, oh yeah, you could walk there like that is how you felt like the electric bike scene. A lot of electric was big there. But there was I think going into this episode, it was kind of like, you know, I think we always try to identify what's the question we're trying to answer here. What's the point of this one? And for me, at least it was kind of like is mackinac island a novelty or is it something very substantive and I think the answer was triumphantly both. I think it has sections that are kind of a total novelty and like I said, I'm not super big on kind of that downtown section, but I think seeing the rest we didn't even get to see the rest of.

"So yeah, the only thing I'd add to the query is, and I don't want this to come off. Maybe I hope it doesn't sound as like a backhanded compliment, but it reminded me of like a blown up miniature golf course. In that it was very fun. And there was some very like wow, I'm wondering how much this costs to make. This is crazy. You know, hitting into some of these queries. So it's to me it was very fun fun golf shots, which, you know, you know, you juxtapose that with the price, like, okay, maybe not as much fun, but you know, it's good for what it is. So after playing bay harbor, we went to boyne highlands, the resort point highlands proper, which sits technically just inside harbor springs, Michigan, and of course we played there is the Arthur hills course, which I think if you're going up, especially as the first timer, a weekend trip, it's going to be everybody's favorite course at boyne highlands and I think very deserve it. The biggest, the best views of any course at point highlands in my opinion. So just to set the stage a little bit, boyne highlands was developed by a guy named Everett Kirchner, who was originally from Detroit and had a dream of bringing snow skiing up to northern Michigan. And in the 1940s, he bought the land, which is now boyne mountain for $1 and slowly began building the ski resort. Boyne mountain was successful. He then built a second resort about 30, 35 minute drive up at boyne highlands, a little further north. And developed another ski resort there. He was making money in the winter and then naturally was like, okay, how can I make money in the summer? And so that's where golf comes in. And so the first course built at boyne highlands was and is the Heather golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones. That's the golf course near and dear to my heart. I worked in the pro shop there. And for my money, it's the best everyday golf course. It's walkable, it's challenging. It's just a very good tournament golf course. And that's where they do. You know, they've done various events will be at the Heather. One of the best things in the game. And the Heather features one of the best worst finishing holes anywhere in golf, downhill par four setting up like a 200 yard shot over water to a slender green with the only bailout area being this tiny little strip of fairway that runs left of the green. That's impossible to hit from the diagonal angle, which you would have to hit it. Just an extraordinary golf ball. Anyway, I digress. We played the hills course. The hills, if it was the only thing I think from being my favorite golf course at boyne highlands aside from the Heather having the special place, obviously, is not a walkable golf course. So I think that's the thing that detracts it ultimately in my book is you got to get in a car and you got to ride. Fortunately, a lot of those drives from green to T or through the Woods and very interesting. So points there for at least making the karting a little bit fun. I think I want to it's an Arthur hills course obviously. Arthur just likes big broad landscapes. Every Arthur hills course I've played is just big and brawny and open, next time you're in Columbus, you need to get out to the virtues, east of town. That's an Arthur hills course. Very, very good golf course. That used to be longer burger? Yeah, that's exactly right. And I think we'd be remiss if we didn't say Arthur hills recently passed away. You know, and he's kind of one of the quintessential Michigan golf course architects and Randy like back to your point about it being riding golf course. I think once of course is not walkable. It's like, what's the difference between having a steer into? 15 second ride between a hole and a 92nd ride between holes. If it's getting you to better land and cool features and stuff, I'm with you. It's just a big, it's an American golf experience, right? I mean, part of the American golf is riding in a cart. And I love finding those walkable places, but it does not detract from my experience to go ride in a cart on cool piece of land like this. Well, that's what I was going to say, especially at the hills is like some of those drives are shocked like beautiful, right? Like going through some of those like the planted forests and timber. Yeah, it was like it was weird we were joking about it, but you usually get done saying like, man, what a great walk, and that was like, man, what a cool ride that course was. It was awesome. Nor would you want to walk some of the slopes up to 1314, you know, up there. The king of the car pass. Yeah, there are few holes that I just want to specifically call out. I think one through four kind of eases you into the round. They're very playable opportunities to score. And then from one of the aforementioned drives off four green, you get into a planted pine area. And then all of a sudden you emerge into this 5th hole and it just is, it's a gorgeous golf ball. It's just carved out of this, I don't know if nursery or just this area of pine trees that I think is among the most scenic that we probably played all trip. Long dogleg left par par four challenging golf ball kind of mounding off the fairway all along the right side to a green that's interesting. So I think that's where the hills course really, that's the first time we're like, oh, okay. This is a really awesome golf. And then from there, number ten is this amphitheater, a short four, to a pushed up, kind of tabletop green, and depending on where they put the flag that you really have a choice off the tee, right? If the flags in the back, I think you can hit driver and get as close to either on the green or just off the green. It's an easier chip. And if that pin is front of the green, there's a huge bunker protecting the front. And so I think you want to be further back. You want to hit like a 5 iron off the tee and have a full swing wedge into that front green. But again, it's just the mounding and just the setting of the whole in the midst of this pine tree forest. It's just it's incredible. And then of course, 13, I'd be remiss if I didn't say, really, I think 12 is a very good grasp. It has one of the biggest blowout bunkers protecting the left side kind of forces you to play off of that on your drive. And then it's a really interesting difficult green. It plays a lot more uphill. I think than a lot of people realize for the second shot. So you get off that. And then all of a sudden, you know, it's like you're on a roller coaster on a ski lift. You just.

"I think in that way, you know, it's a little bit like pebble beach, where, you know, we think of pebble beach as God the views, man. It's all about the views. But I think it's also a little bit like pebble beach and I know you sit firmly on this block is like outside of that stretch of world famous holes, the course can kind of lose a little bit, especially as you get a little bit inland. And I think bay harbor is the same way. You know, absolutely stunning holes, but you can tell that the course was built first and foremost first and foremost as a real estate play. And so when you get away from the Lake or some of the starting holes, you know, they're not the greatest, but all in all, I think it's a tremendous experience. Would I take away from bey harbor, I thought it was an excellent condition. I thought the turf was it wasn't as firm as what we saw in Ross common or at Kingsley. It gets a lot more precipitation just being right by the Lake. But very lush and very well maintained. I think on the links line, Saul, you played that with me. My favorite holes three is like this downhill. It almost looks like a split fairway, but it's like one big connected fairway as it goes downhill to this green side. It's kind of right on the lakes edge. That's a fun one. You can hit any different club off the tee, really from driver to 7 iron, I think if you wanted to. And then number four is just this kind of postcard par three that sits in the corner of the property. There's a really nice big not quite mansion, but big house that frames it on the back. And then just beyond, you see all down the coastline, you have great view of little traverse bay. The area of bay harbor and to me, that's the spot where most feels like I'm not in Michigan. Almost could be not quite like Mediterranean, but you feel like you could be in a different country somewhere. Standing on that TI number four. So those are the two highlights. And then number 7 is the big par 5 that hugs the cliff overlooking the Lake. I think that's another one to mention from the links 9. Those three holes are probably the standouts for me. I was just going to make that quick comparison when you're saying not being in northern Michigan. And honestly, reminded me of like a 75% version of Cary cliffs in New Zealand. I mean, you are up there on those cliffs. The views are insane. It is extremely well maintained. I thought, honestly, I got the golf holes where they were much like the 9 holes we played was better than I was expecting it to be. I'm not a huge Arthur hills fan and that is some of the finest work. I think with the two Arthur hills courses we played on this trip are the finest Arthur hills courses I've seen. The greens were interesting, the shots were interesting. There was plenty of width. I was very, very, very engaged, much more engaged playing those 9 holes than I was anticipating when we teed off. I've totally with you there. I thought the golf was a little better than the vibe. It's set up. You mentioned kind of some of the cons of the pros and cons of quote the American pebble beach one thing you know, I don't know if you totally mentioned another very similar aspect is that it's exorbitantly expensive. Which I think we probably need to mention. I think it can push up to up in the $400 range, which is, you know, again, if you've got a full T-shirt, it's much like pebble beach. It's very hard to argue with that strategy, but it's kind of one of those things that's like man would you rather play there once or go play Belvedere 6 times? It's a pretty easy answer for me, but all that being said, like you almost kind of expect a little bit of a watered down, golf experience and kind of something just catered totally towards the views. And I actually thought the links 9 was super fun. I had a blast out there. I think it's not, I would not classify this whole place as a place for golf enthusiasts. It's more vibe enthusiast, right? Big getaway, big vacation and like a spectacular sight to play golf a 100%. But if you love, there's not much overlap between Belvedere and bay harbor. As far as this day, there were two opposite ends of the spectrum. And I think even within, you go to other boy places to get your true golf fix. And I think bay harbor, you can view as like, hey, let's go. Let's go enjoy the scenery. We'll have a drink on the deck and it's almost yeah, you just fill up the tank a little bit on views, which there was a true moment standing off the 7th green where I just was looking around for once I just turned back to the group on the green. It was just like, we are so lucky. Just like, does that setting was it was hitting me, man. Again, it speaks to and that's what to give TC a special, even more compliments than we already have on the itinerary. It was like the variety of different things we did on this trip and the variety of different things Michigan can offer kind of blew my mind, right? I mean, this being this same day's drive away as the Belvedere experience was just insane. And like I said, it's not like where we would normally gravitate to, but gosh, you can understand why people that have the money to spend on something like that would gravitate to a place like this. And Cory wise, I think, you know, the first two holes are kind of, you know, they kind of get you out to the quarry and everything. But made no mistake the Cory's right there next to the Lake as well. You kind of get introduced to some of what's to come on number three. It's par 5. Second shot, you kind of got to make a decision, hey, am I going over this or am I am I laying up short? And then, you know, there's a number 5. There's a pretty I mean, four plays down to the Lake, 5 comes back. It's a par 5, 6 short par four. Pretty, pretty exhilarating shot downhill, but like the Lake is always within arm's reach of you. But you're kind of playing through the main part of the quarry as you get into like four, 5, 6, and then you climb this hill to 7 and then downhill par three to 8, which and then 9s is a cool, you know, really, really funky little closing hole right there by the Clubhouse, but kind of a blind tee shot and you're hitting kind of uphill and then downhill to this green that's hard up against the Lake..

"I thought it was just hats, but I'll stand out on that. To that point on the greens, like when you're talking about with hepner, I didn't see the course before the greens were expanded, but huge greens with big contours does. It just increases the enjoyment level and almost every way. There's a lot of holes to have some kickers to it, but you get the par four 13th had these crazy mounds to the left. You almost didn't know until you got left of that green, and you're like, oh gosh, this was a big green and I missed it and I'm gonna pay the price because there were some big contours to deal with. I don't know. You have so much more pin able space for a course that you're going to play on repeat too for local people. That adds so much more enjoyment than you're playing a different course every day. Mike tirico is a member there, as well as Tom Watson, spent his childhood through his college years summering in northern Michigan. Belvedere became his home course in the summer and to this day, Watson pronounces Belvedere as one of his three favorite courses in the country behind Augusta and pebble beach. So he still makes occasional visits to the club. Grazie. Randy, what any thoughts to add on Belvedere? No, I'm just really glad you guys enjoyed it. Honestly, it's probably like my favorite up in northern Michigan just for the playability on an everyday basis. And I wasn't sure if that would or if one felt that you guys would pick up and feel the same way. And so it was delighting for me that I was like, oh yeah, this is just like me. This is what it is. I guess it was a little affirming, and I've just very glad that you guys enjoyed it. The only other thing that I'll notice, they don't sell coffee in Marty the pro. I was like, yeah, I haven't sold it for 90 years. I was like, cool. Beg them, just to brew a pot of coffee maybe in the morning. Great merch, though. Fantastic. As a tradeoff. Marty's running a proper shop in there. I'll say it reminded me of the best elements of the British Isles and if you know no offense to anyone with coins book, it would be one of the it would be like the great American golf course. Yeah. For me, everything that I would look for in an American golf course. Randy, it is time for to head to boin. First starting at bay harbor, and then let's get to the hills course that we played. Bay harbor is part of boyne resorts. Boyne is a big player up in northern Michigan, specifically as you get east and north of Charlotte, where Belvedere is. They own and operate ten golf courses around northern Michigan. They have two at boyne mountain. They have four boy in highlands. They have bay harbor. You can kind of split it up into three distinct courses. They have 27 holes there. They have crooked stick. Which is kind of between bay harbor and petoskey. And so yeah, our first stop was bay harbor. We split up and played some of us played the links 9, some of us played the query 9. I think before I want to get into that just real quick or any, it's crooked tree just so the Indiana people aren't all over you, but continue, please. Yeah, that's right. That's right. Thank you, Sully. Before we get into that, Neil, I know you got a lot of good information on the building and restoration at behar. I was wondering if you could share just some of that with the folks. Yes. The information I got from our host Ken was that it was the most expensive golf course ever designed in the United States ever built and designed due to the reclamation. It wasn't just 9 of the holes the most expensive 9 holes. I believe the query 9 quarry. I think the links. The links. Link's not because just the it was like a brown field. It's a super sight. It was a cement factory and mine and they had to other purpose to land. Which is I think is great. The money specifically I mean, you can tell a lot a lot of dirt is moved. It's definitely a cart course. Some of the costs had to be putting in 486 miles of interstate car pay. But I would say the quarry might have been even more Arthur hills could build him some fart pass. The king of car passed mister hills, but the I think most of that cost was just trying to cap the sure. The cap that stuff in the ground. So it doesn't seep out. But I mean, similar to stream song, I think that's a path forward for golf courses is remediated land. Remediating land. Yeah. So getting into bay harbor, there are three 9s, they have the preserved 9, which is probably the most placid of the 9. It just meanders through the Woods, very secluded, very pretty, but the one that we did not play on this trip. The quarry 9, I think is probably the coolest. You just have some stunning visuals with some rock outcroppings and they've built some fun holes into that 9, trying to Neal, I want to ask ask you about some of your favorites here in just a second. And then finally, the links 9, which, you know, it gets its name the links, I think, because it's the closest you get to Lake Michigan. There's some absolutely stunning views of little traverse bay. It doesn't really play like a links course, so it's a bit misleading that way. But that's the 9 that I played. So anyway, you have these three 27 holes, you can play 18 holes in any type of combination. It's a real logistical feat that they do being able to get people around all three 9s with scheduling 18 whole rounds. And just the logistics that go into well, they're starting there and have to play this 9, they started on this 9 and have to play that 9. More broadly speaking, I think babe harbor, they want to position themselves as some can Toledo. As the pebble beach of the Midwest, and I think at first blush, it's easy to kind of laugh or snicker at that. But then the more I think about it, the more it becomes a little bit apt in ways that I think are in ways that I think are both good and maybe not so good. So starting with the good, you know, it's really, really scenic golf. And I think for a lot of people, a trip to northern Michigan and getting the chance to play bay harbor, some combination of the three 9s. It's probably the highlight of their golfing summer. And they're going to get tons of really, really nice pictures. They're going to see some really cool things that they haven't seen on golf courses before. And I think in that way, you know, it's a little bit like pebble beach, where, you know, we think of pebble beach as God the views, man. It's all about the views..

They'd have scholarship. Gimme often prefer walk on spy. Ogling university was the first school to actually offer me. And but i had interest inappro- fort wayne valpo wisconsin Eastern western central michigan so allow the mac schools at that time and so In a in a few more big ten schools but you know the more more.

"Have nothing to do with the move what's going on in the movie that's right and that was my problem in trying to shoehorn it in somewhere mmhm well he should have here's one last great piece of trivia yeah it's trivia Jim Gardner when he hits the beach which is by the way Oxnard California but when he hits the beach in Oxnard Arthur hill is watching the taken they were very careful so that no one would get injured in this one action sequence but as carefully as your things happen and garner is he's running down there walls any bounces and Arthur Hiller says that can't be good and they said cut it was a last shot taken in the movie in filming and he had the heat they were all issued water canteens that that they had strapped to their sides and when he fell he fell right on the cantina broke two ribs oooh ouch okay but the movie was done shows okay chaff he of course was also where did the screen running for network if you remember I'm mad as hell and I'm not gonna take it anymore exactly that's his line mmhm so I'm here I also like the three the the pre invasion segments where the the whole did a fleet was was put on hold because they were waiting for a branch in in the weather and that James Garner doing whatever he possibly could to try to get out of this and of course didn't succeed there then succeed in doing that okay you know what my favorite quote from the movie is what's that Jim garner saying I want you to remember that the last time I saw you I was under a generously eating a Hershey bar that's what he was talking to Juliet Juliet when you broke up with Julie Andrews just before he was about to go to D. day by the way if if you're not familiar with paddy Chayefsky here's a great quote from him that I think we can agree with today although it was made in about nineteen eighty this was following the Oscars when Vanessa Redgrave made an anti Zionist Dick tirade at the Oscar at when receiving her Oscar here's Tchaikovsky's comment I would like to say personal opinion of course that I'm sick and tired of people exploiting the Academy Awards for the propagation of their own propaganda I would like to suggest to miss Redgrave that her winning the academy award is not a pivotal moment in history does not require a proclamation and a simple thank you would have sufficed I thank that Ricky Jr vase might have been inspired by chaff these thoughts when he hosted the the Oscars last time around when he boy that was just the beginning yeah we didn't know it was just the beginning it would get much much much worse in the years that followed and now it's the focus rather than the films okay the I'm not I'm going to go one by one I mean I think three ratings here you can't steal one from me this time all right well I'm I'm gonna give mine first then okay I'm gonna give three different rating so maybe I get him all get the hat trick no I'm gonna give it five out of five Higgins boats good I have the lan yeah yes ma'am I give it five out of five Hershey bars mmhm I also gave it five out of five lovable cowards and finally five out of five what sixteen millimeter cameras very good some of the people who didn't like the movie criticized the speechifying which of course was one of the greatest fractions of it to me yeah Julie any others as part of it making sharing her values on this and her experiences with her late husband and James Garner talking about his view the two views conflicted and strained their relationship by the way has a wonderfully happy ending as far as the relationship thing is concerned but I I thought that was a a a a a state and a very important part of the movie and then of course that's where paddy Chayefsky got to express himself and Arthur Hiller by the way said if you want to see one scene in this film that basically gives Tchaikovsky's whole philosophy it's the T. so when Julie Andrews brings Jim garner to meet her mother and they have tea together in the garden and they all talk about death and war and cowards and heroism and the whole idea of the film is presented in that one scene and I should note that Julie Andrews father or mother's husband obviously up also and her mother lost her husband in in the war and that she was apparently delusional about it but it turns out she really wasn't delusion ask her denial was was a a protective shield yes Emily is a mother played by wonderful British stage actress called Joyce Grenfell hi James Coburn of course went on to be very successful in Amanda in like flint we have a sequel one or two sequels to the film I think it was so successful yeah okay let's take a break right here again if you have any thoughts on the service call Dave and I have some other movies you want to talk about in some television series as well first Susan went

"Is it Mandy com or Mike Rosen I'm confused and I'm I'm micros in art I'm just filling in for Mandy today she will be back on Monday if Mandy were here then she'd be at the front of the line running the show and Dave Lauer and I would be participating in this installment of Mike Rosen at the movies doing our movie review segment Dave however is here right Dave yes I am and I am thrilled to be here for one of my favorite movies you know this this current series we've been doing the idea has been great movies that really were under are under appreciated today have kind of faded from favor and this one has the has to be near the top of the list the Americanization of Emily now let me let me give a Angie are wonderful producer challenger on short notice because I didn't discuss this with her Frank Sinatra had a song called Emily and that was also from this movie was made for this movie so imagine if you can find Frank Sinatra's Emily and we can play a couple of seconds of it I would like to throw that into the mix right the way Mike yes since you mentioned it it was going to be one of my points later but I'll bring it up right now that song the director of the film is a guy named Arthur Hiller well made many great movies and he loves this song Emily by Johnny Mercer that was written for this film now the the academy in order to make up a song eligible for best song has to appear somewhere in the film with music and lyrics now you'll hear the theme throughout this movie but you never hear the lyrics Hillary said I tried my best to think of a way to sneak the man and I couldn't think of how to do it he said I I thought maybe the closing credits but that would be so anti climactic after the ending that you couldn't do that and the result was the song was never nominated for an Oscar rule of the as you said Sinatra recorded it with great success well let's see Sinatra was around in the forties could they have rounded into the movie by having them listen to the radio or something and hearing center after saying Emily I don't think so not your recorded a toll and who's gonna know that's a detail you know it's you have taken they give you latitude liberties and movies right well doesn't matter because they didn't do it okay right all right so we're going to give us that give us the pricing on this J. the precinct now that this is a movie that's hard to characterize many people call it anti war movie the screenwriter paddy Chayefsky and the director Arthur Hiller characterized it rather as an anti glorification of war movie it wasn't war that they were criticizing it was making it into a heroic idea so that young people would want to emulate it and in further later wars so this movie takes place just on the eve of the day and you have the star James Garner playing Lieutenant Commander Charles Madison and he is as Mike has described the dog robber he works for the admiral and all of the brass in the navy and his job is to get all that stuff that nobody can get like like great Scotch and chocolate and women and so exciting's and closing and all kinds of wonderful things for parties if they're gonna throw yeah SO that's his job and it's a great job and in the and while he's doing his job he meets a driver a woman driver played by Julie Andrews Emily Baram and she's a character who's lost a husband in the war she and she's very patriotic and just the opposite of the Jim Gardner character who is a self our server in Calgary yes right yes he is a guy that's his profession and she says and this is a love story between them that's part of it the love story but then there is a part of the admiral played by Melvyn Douglas agro Jesup kind of has a he's the guy that Jim garner works for and he has a mental breakdown and Wiley does he says I want you to make a movie of the landing at D. day and I want the first dead man on Omaha beach to be a sailor and I want you to film it now everyone thinks this is a crazy idea and they kind of ignore him but eventually they have to make the movie he keeps pressing on this yeah and engine garnered next thing he knows he's going to hit the beach on D. day as a coward and a lot of of complications result because of his relationship with with Julie Andrews and her patriotism in his cowardice clash now if one of his buddies yes a James garner's but he's gotten people trying to enter Madison is James Coburn who's also a Lieutenant Commander his name is bus and he's very gung ho so even though this set admirals idea is nutty James Garner Madison is trying to figure out a way to get around it and James Coburn doesn't no no it's a great idea we've got to do it so that the two of them are on this landing boat that coming ashore at an Omaha and then James Coburn is operating the camera then James Dr Judy James Garner who just wants to be any place else and is actually running away from the beach get shot and that now they've got the film at the admiral once Hey shot by bus that's right get shot but did want to say that thanks for the warning the movie for people I think we've told all movies pretty much yes but there's so much more to it than that and and when I say that I mean the screen play if you haven't heard the movie as well as seen it you really haven't seen the movie because this is one of the great screenplays ever now it's interesting that all of the stars Jim garner Julianne Druce the director Arthur Hiller and the screenwriter paddy Chayefsky all unanimously said this was the best film they had ever been connected with that's quite a compliment from all of them get it now ranges up to percent ninety two percent rating from the professional critics at rotten tomatoes and an eighty two percent rating from the audience I should know too that this film is in black and white amazing on purpose yeah and the longer she member the longest day of one of the great zombie movie is also about the same thing about the liberation of of Normandy it was in black and white to yes and the the studio MGM originally they pushed hard for color and Hillary stood his ground and said no this is black and white it's a black and white war I can do a lot with the cinematography with black and white ironically after it went to Ted Turner's Turner Classic Movies Turner colorized it and Heller was was furious but later Turner agreed and withdrew it but yeah it's a beautiful black and white film and I should say originally in this movie William Wyler really why we're supposed to be the director and William Holden was supposed to star in the Jim Gardner role however Wyler didn't like the script that **** had a jet ski had done any ask for big changes what you're asking never changed a word in any of the scripts and that was in his contract so Wyler bailed out of the the film in one Weiler did so did bill Holden and in Kmart Heller and Jim garner now Jim garner originally was not supposed to play the lead he was supposed to play the James Kerr Coburn role the secondary role however they Arthur hill decided to make garner the lead and then he hired James Coburn another reason another reason that black and white works for this movie is during the second World War people going to movie theaters in addition to the double feature and maybe a cartoon that they got they also got what was called Movietone news and all the films that you saw of action in both the Pacific and the European theater were black and white on the screens in movie theaters so people a lot of people from that generation have a a black and white memory of the second World War that's very true another is that by the way the United States Navy wanted no part of this film in any way shape or form and did not cooperate at all as you can imagine here's a piece of trivia to cameo roles very small roles in the movie however remember Mike the growing and Martin's laugh in course yes Judy carton has a a small role in this and also Alan Seuss does rise a small role in this so this was a couple of years before laughing at the screens and Judy current played one of the girls that James Gunn was able to round up in order to have that female of accompaniment at the parties that you throw and incidentally Judy card was married at the time.

completely surrender their own personalities to the character that they play in yes Daniel day Lewis I'm looking at you they say but then there are also actors who bring their own natural charisma and flamboyance on the roles which might seem like a little easier process but it can be really effective depending on the context we're looking back at the actors that have the most imposing screen

ride to the cemetery the next time you watch the movie notice all the little bits of business Steve does to draw attention to him and away from the printer even if Brenner has the lead yeah all I'll definitely watch I'll definitely keep my eyes peeled for that at and there's a episode of Alfred Hitchcock presents from the late fifties that most McQueen fans have never seen but it's it's a really good episode and he's in that along with the actor Arthur hill I believe the title is human interest story okay for the last Martian okay but it's it's from like fifty nine of the outage **** percent

know how much of it I think you know what we'll have to see what the value yeah yeah as with all those business listings on the eve of the Spartan separately if it had a pretty stupid people yeah I don't know who the who would sit watch except set for me in you I'm a like a day to do this yeah when do you expect the full has to vote on the articles of impeachment Rick I think I think we're looking at the end of next week at this point you know I I told members of Congress maybe it could be as late as next Saturday yup the article suggests that the end of this week you may not be the end of the week actually you know the thing is that you don't have to suffer if you got what you put in one not to put in I think that a lot of concerns among the members about how broad to grow how now would be out that they're doing all those things we realize that no Republicans right so in some ways very liberating because I just one last thing to have to worry about it's not about helping Republicans with this white it is surely going to be about how you you get as many Democrats United as possible and and beyond the borders of this process yes is there any Democrat that's concerned about how how tough it is to be able to negotiate with the president on keeping the government open or or the US MCA they're not they're not even thinking about or like Chuck Schumer like we were talking about earlier Chuck Schumer came out yesterday it seems silly was as usual silly Sunday press conference but he said there should be more room by their place I just got back from San Francisco man I said I I I did yes that's what I'd love to see the Democrats talking about do they have any other initiatives other than impeachment available possible loss of go up by that by that the Senate I don't want all of this is that this president like if you only want to make a deal and that you know doing other stuff used without a lot of time doing other stuff all out of that would have been attacked so with the region's main you know why you that's when he gained about March which will complicate the most about whether or not if you can stop and it's also a question who would you want done a lot of patience log at not a total loss although the president yeah when when when it's not I don't think it matters well I mean you'll you'll and understand that it just seems like they they aren't they aren't letting them do any work at all they're just going just just want to take them out I mean I think that's what America's Phelan we're watching the the all the Democrats want to do is take him down taken down they don't want to come up with I haven't seen the Michigan unless I'm missing something well I think you're the Democrats outright now is that they want to communicate but still getting worked on I I I I will spell that all this is gonna be a distant memory by the time voters actually get away and stuff that happened when they were typical week and the present problems and you guys are nuts and Democrats are going to be judged on that's really not all that soul with their lives in lots of ways yeah this is only one thing it's all done but don't worry on March that a lot of months between them November yeah he ripped up the sheet time this morning with the debate when is a debate David B. B. C. before Christmas it is correct yeah week from Thursday in Los Angeles and this is this is a weird one it's only have six candidates and as of now all of them all right so all that diversity than Democrats were so proud of them telecommuting historical Leon you just gonna look really weird and the other weird thing is that the guys it's all over television I mean little you can't turn on television and I yeah I think it'll work so it's just this is such a strange but this is going on when the reality of what the race looks like it's reflected what's happening on stage and I don't know how you have to be on everyone's talking about impeachment right and you know the cabinets are you not only six about they won't even that's right very very odd thank white helmet what Cory did make the debates just about you know the court he's not yet only because the numbers because of poll numbers all you have you done your call in the polling in the last couple days yeah I guess you can get it but it would literally have to go back in three days or something yeah yeah yeah yeah it's also not happen so he's fired up about that people apart about that on the trail but that doesn't have the numbers and how it is going to be a very very small eight states that what were the races any inspector general report today we things going to happen with that recline well yeah we'll see on the Senate side inspection found the origins of the investigation it'll be interesting yeah we hear from the Attorney General and there was talk about because usually when you get a second don't report it says your agency with okay okay okay great that's not move on we missed a lot of people don't think it was operated correctly including the president felt we see daylight between the that the inspector general and he and the and the head of the justice department had invested walking out you might want to celebrate that under normal circumstances but that this is not what I look like Rick climate Joe Piscopo at Rick I take some sad news yesterday Dale Murphy did not make it all of fame I know I know you're very upset me and I mean what what what your next step in this Dale Murphy campaign I love you do I was but I was such a he's such a gentleman and your right great ambassador for the game and a two time MVP and part time all our and all all of you seven I'm also so I wanted I don't think race credentialing is about you know what it really depends on a couple of very small groups and hopefully next time I'll have some more working days coaches that hopefully the voters are are are listening to one looking at the the other contributions resign it's very sad but you know he's in my hall of fame personal life so that's a terrific guy and you definitely deserve they are replying to baseball family love that man and and I love to you your family on a Long Island Rick from Long Island at Princeton did the director of a politics at ABC news you appreciate Rick and we'll talk again but happy happy holidays to you my friend thank you Joe thank you anyway thank you all the all the very best six fifty one with Joe on the radio eight seven seven nine seven oh twenty nine I did I did he do aim is that they're looking out for you it's a Monday it's a December night here we go holiday traffic how we doing that in that problems and I'll tell you about a few of them Joe over onto eighty west getting its exit fifteen in their work it's an accident all lanes remain closed eighty east getting into active for as you head into adults and watch out for an accident they're all lanes closed as well Harlem river drive south in the one twenty is it's an accident traffic is building for you on the eastbound side of the VQA by queen's Boulevard with the coalition they just cleaned up an accident on for fourty the washer expressway north up by Arthur hill road on Staten Island there was on a bridge upper level getting into Staten Island a disabled vehicle they are alike US at south Oyster Bay road accident cleared expect delays on the downtown of five fame Hudson Bergen light rail a fifteen minute delay as well southbound freeway is like to lay here getting down toward the Tappan Zee bridge to.

"Class when I first began her but had a studio and he said why don't you join us I said first last twenty seven years old I said I don't know how to teach and he said you know how to act. share what you have learned. well that was to me such a wonderful way of. watching it didn't had an almost printer natural ability to tap not only into her emotions when she appeared on stage but to recognize the range of behaviors that came with them so she began to investigate how to develop acting exercises to help her students tap into that self knowledge I began working at home by myself we can always tell somebody how we feel about something but but we did when we felt a certain way we're unable to describe. so I started to watch myself at home and in a variety of circumstances and then see if I could bring into being and recreates just two minutes of a simple task while I was at home understanding everything that was the cause of my babies some of the exercises she created were for the actors to examine how they behaved while they waited for a subway train or were looking for a lost object or how they answered the telephone with three different people at the other end of the line Amanda Peet says in that particular exercise was often whole areas to watch how their voices would change in their manner would change like if you're talking to your mom and then your agent called on the other line you would go from being like I don't know I just don't feel on usually it will be coming down with some hold on a second hello. yeah sure I can definitely be there yeah you know and just you put on these different facets of your personality and that has also stuck with me because it's the key to not overacting and it's the key to like finding ways to play characters who you'd otherwise be very judgmental of one aspect of Huggins teaching was to get actors to use props not in a fussy way but to help unlock characters says Mercedes Ruehl when you have props then you have activities and when you have an activity and you're speaking with an activity the whole thing raises that it stops being declamatory and it starts being organic because you're doing something you're cleaning things you're putting them away you stacking them you're folding them and you're talking at the same time and what happens with that is it loosens up the emotion behind what you're saying Haagen joked in her book respect for acting that quote people who know me will recognize anyone studying with me as they approach the studio because they are usually lugging so many shopping bags full of props but this work with props was not just for her classes when Hoggan prepared her finest role Martha the boozy wife of a college professor in Edward Albee's nineteen sixty two hit who's afraid of Virginia Woolf curator Allen pally says at the beginning of rehearsals they have the set furniture and props and she said later in nineteen eighty two to me that was not only precedent setting I have never heard of anything like it since to start play of that length in that difficulty without the props and scenery we would have had to rehearse eight weeks longer to me this was one of the unique experiences of my entire life in the theater starting with the things that are food for the play in a live on the stage every little Ice Cube every little clinking glass I found this the most useful circumstances and the production. I've ever been in do you get me my drink please. he's in the math department is about thirty. learn to look at yes and good looking it figures and his wife is a mousy little type without in the hips or anything all do you remember them now yeah I guess so. in god's name are they coming over here. Daddy said we should be nice to them. I have my drink please Daddy said we should be nice thank you that's Arthur hill is George Haugen played Martha for two years on Broadway where she won her second Tony and went to London with the show almost forty years later David Hyde Pierce saw Huygens concerned with props up close when they appeared together in a two person play called six dance lessons in six weeks she played an elderly widow he played her young dance instructor miss talking was very insistent that from the first day of rehearsal we would have in the rehearsal room not plywood or cardboard mock ups but she wanted the refrigerator and it and it needed to be the refrigerator not a refrigerator door refrigerator that we would have on stage. because she said I want to have open and close that door a hundred times before I ever do it in front of an audience and it is both a very practical itself it's saving saying which is if there's any problems with this I'm going to have it figured out but it's also the thing that gives you the physical behavior that a person who lives in that house and always uses that refrigerator has without thinking about but pure says the set designer Roy Christopher hadn't found the right cookie tend to use in the plan so we just use a little clear plastic Tupperware for rehearsal and when we moved into the theater he had found this amazing metal sort of ornamented container which knowing the history of this woman you could absolutely picture like at what point in her life she got it it was just brilliant that he found this thing that perfectly into the sack and when we got to that scene and she went to reach for the cookies and there was a metal container sh she picked it up and said what the hell is this another expletive and heard it on stage and then we went back to the plastic Tupperware and that's what we use for the rest of the place if that's what you've been using for rehearsal grounding a character was central to Huggins teaching she worked with actors on substitution where they take something from their own lives and in view it into the role they're playing and expectation having a character expect one response when they say a line but get a different one Austin Pendleton who's taught it H. B. studio for fifty years demonstrated for me say to me how are you today us. shut up. now she would say we could play that moment for a year. and if you always knew what your expectation was can be vague and can be I'm fine but if the expectation is always in place it's always going to move in on you and trigger spontaneous behavior no matter how long you do the play when you talk to Huggins students one mantra keeps coming up mark Nelson who also teaches at H. B. studio says on the first day of class with Teigen he was a nervous wreck and she crouched down next to me and whispered so nobody else in the class could hear was private. and she said if I have two minutes and I want to relax so that I can. I ask myself where am I. where have I just come from and what do I want to do and if I know the answers to those three questions I realize there have been lots of influential acting teachers over the years Constantin Stanislavski Lee Strasberg Stella Adler and they all have their disciples but for many the Hawkins toolbox is one they come to again and again and for those who were lucky enough to learn about it from hugging herself well the lessons never go away Mercedes Ruehl now teaches in the same room where she studied with uta Hoggan it was the most magical place to me it saved my life at that time and I think she focused me in a way that was absolutely necessary and key to my moving on and her belief in me gave me believe him myself whether she was teaching or acting for to Haagen it was all about how to be a human being on stage and you never stop learning about that and not look like an actor but looks like a human being on stage and still have total communication. that's the real craft and that's the bottom.

You know, it helps everybody out that's why I play from the senior teas, and there's also a movement play nine if you've got time to play nine play nine yeah. Again, I say this realizing and sometimes it's hard to believe that not everybody galls now and not everybody appreciates the game. I get then but at the same time since we have all these wonderful tracks available to us in the state use them. And I'm happy to report bent. A lot of people are, and if you if you're not a golfer you go to, to, to enjoy the sights, the sounds the you come across. We had we were playing in in Mount Pleasant yesterday we broadcast from bucks run fine track. We had a porcupine running across the fairway you don't get a chance to see porcupines as often as you'd like I've ever seen a porcupine in the wild turtles the whole thing. I mean it's you're out, it's the name the tour fits, right? The pure Michigan golf door because you get everything everything Michigan has to offer and that includes wildlife. Exactly. You are out and being one with nature. What kind of price can you put on that we were playing up in Boeing, there's a massive Sandra? We're playing Arthur hills at boy in highlands. There's a massive Santra, but like here in southern Michigan. Northern Michigan has been there a little bit behind there, about four to five weeks behind where we are in terms of our weather. So they're spring is really just kind of kicking into gear. They've gotten lots of rain. So the sand trap was flooded. It looked like a like an inside the lake there were three deer there were goose. There were saying hill crane. And they were just they were just hanging out with each other, and it was unbelievable, while the plural of goot would be a gaggle of geese so was you see things that it just kind of takes your breath away. So there you go. And again, we are wrapping up the twenty nine thousand nine pure Michigan golf tour here at the Detroit golf club. I've got to get something off my chest because I just saw this headline in its mornings shirt on, please. Young workers unhappy with aging workforce. Of young workers unhappy with aging workforce. Some younger workers, aren't particularly thrilled to see arising here of older Americans forego, retirement, and continue working. That's the gist of the story. Maybe it's because we've been working trying to put a roof over your egg. Great. Thank you, can I say that we appreciate you. I think I just did you know. Yeah, I'll retire. When I get around to it. Don't you worry about me? I'm sorry. I'm taking your job if you retire early give golfing. Look at you always thinking, again, one of my heroes in this industry coming up right around the corner.

"Golf dot com sitting in for Frank guy. Gordon. And good morning once again, as we wrap up our morning here in the beautiful jewel of the north, the Boyne group of resorts and Ken Griffin, joins me the director of golf sales and marketing Mike cart brother from different. We enjoyed the, the Arthur hills course yesterday. You know, I've been talking about, you know, five star service first class. Amenities really talking about the quality of the experience here, but people may hear that I may be misleading because it sounds expensive. It isn't necessarily you offer. Some really you offer. Great value here. No. I mean you can choose what you wanna do. We have stay and play packages start for right around one hundred dollars. You can get at which is eighteen in an overnight. You can get unlimited golf starting at about one hundred forty dollars an hour or as you mentioned earlier the greatest gay package, if you want to immerse yourself in Gulf for the week. It's, it's breakfast dinner, unlimited Gulf on seven of the ten courses around pay harbor and a gift card. What is, you know, everybody knows the Heather everybody knows the moors and, and the memorial certainly but now you've got some other properties here too, that are really inviting as well, like crooked tree, which you guys have extensively redone. Right. Well, you know, we were very fortunate very humble this year. We've been at two courses in the top one hundred for golf digest links quarry bay harbor as well as the Heather Heyer at point highlands, and Boyne highlands, you know, it's been mentioned a couple of times, one in the National Golf course owners course the year this year. But as Josh mentioned earlier, we have those standards for all ten courses. It's not just about a big two or three. If I go out and poll, six people all get four different favorites. You were telling me earlier that you were corresponding with some of its the PGA tour and his son, his son-in-law, right? Yeah. And he was playing up here at Boyne last summer and talking to his son who was playing on the tour. Tell me about that exchange because it's fun late. Took pictures of how the bunkers were finished on the hills. And his son said, were you playing and he goes on playing at point? And he goes, I play on Sundays, and some of our bunkers finished off that well and it was it was very humbling. And of course, we shared it with our operation staff because those guys take a lot of pride in that well I was talking about. The, the gentleman that was working on this green. That's right. Outside our window here. He spent twenty minutes on that green, obviously he takes a great deal pride in his work as he was getting that green prepared for the day's play. Oh, yeah. And, and if we have, you know, next week, the golf channels is coming into shoot. Our superintendents get very upset with me that I need to give them enough lead time to know the schedule because they want to make sure that they're maintaining those standards will. Yeah. Because your speed limitation there and pictures for important in the program for the guys take a lot of prayer. And that's the reason on a daily base have that kind of quality because of the people care people to work here for years and to maintain those standards beat each other factors. A little Shimon courses to all by and be as good or better than the other courses within our own family. Also, I guess, you know, when when you come to resort like this sometimes save for instance I spent some planet. Vanden dune there's some wonderful courses there. But they're all kind of the same character each one of your courses has a different personality here. Especially like the difference between the hills and the memorial. Right. Well, the Pitta may that is bay harbor where you've got links Corey and preserve. And you can drive hundreds of miles and not find a, a core, of course, in a quarry or the links or, or that variety that close put truly across our ten even though there's only, you know, there's a thirty minute difference from their farthest drive and ten courses. There aren't places in the US where you can get ten quality courses that close. But as you say the variety you've got all the elevations change on the hills. But yet you've got, you know, the Heather that we started out with it really sits more out in the flat. So you can kind of pick the terrain..

"Best of the guy Gordon show on WJR. The cutest video hit by inbox sporting, it's my little grandson, Henry, and he's meeting his little sister for the first time, and he looks at her, and he says, she has to, he's just these still just learning how to string words together, she has to is she has a nose. She has a mouth look at her toes. He was doing what every parent when they have a child, you know what we're gonna count the fingers. We're gonna count the toes. We're gonna make sure that everything is. Okay. And thank God it was, and she's a beautiful little baby, and he finishes by saying, she's so cute. Well, she is in we just thank God for that because we know that too often. Babies aren't perfect and in its due in no small fact, many times, because mothers, don't get prenatal care or there are difficulties during the pregnancy or the baby is premature here in Michigan, especially it's we one in ten babies here in the state of Michigan. Arrives prematurely in. It's even higher here in the state of Michigan, rather city of Detroit. It's one and six seven hundred twenty seven babies in Michigan will die before their first birthday and thirty three hundred are born with birth defects. So thank God for the March of dimes because they are there for parents that are dealing with it, when a baby has birth defects, and they make sure, and especially if a woman is in what you would call a prenatal desert, where she can't get prenatal care. They make sure that she does they do so many wonderful things, and that's why I am announcing, and I think we already made the announcement that I'm going to be the chairperson for the March of dimes golfer babies classic the classic of thirty ninth annual coming up on August nineteenth, and we had a great opportunity on Monday to play oak point country club, which will be the locale this year and Bill them general manager. Vote point joins us today. Bill Gates guy. Thanks for having me. Yeah. I'm still I'm still buzzing. Okay. I just had so much fun on your honors. Course I wish I could have hung around to, to play the other thirty. You know, the great thing is that folks that subscribe and join us for the golf classic. Come, August nineteenth have their choice of two fantastic. Eighteen hole courses to play. Definitely, so they probably August nineteenth won't be fighting the, the chili elements you started off in that morning, but good for you for wearing shorts. I, I was Prodi. Well, you know, there are just some things that I refused to compromise on, if it's above forty five degrees. Then I'm going I'm going in shorts and yet it also gave me an opportunity to shame our sales manager, Jeff marr Sarah for not for people that aren't familiar with point. You're out there in Brighton. It's easy access via I ninety six and I have no trouble getting. Out there that morning because you're really going against the flow of traffic. It's so it's an easy, get to tell us about the two courses. No. We have two different challenges of golf one designed by Gerry Matthews and one designed by Arthur hills. And just completely two different tests of golf one in more of a park, like setting one more of a resort feel, the, the Lakeview here, right behind the clubhouse and surrounding the eighteenth hole in the the seventeenth hole. And a lot of different challenges of the honors course gives you up, north feel fast greens, undulations all over the course. That's really fun. Goff question play. It is you talk about the character with the thing that struck me was just the beauty of the setting the wetlands we saw sandhill cranes. We saw deer. Just lots of wildlife to go the wild swings that we were.

And we're back here at Michigan State University breslin student events center or the TSA state semi final between you digest with cubs and oca- most chiefs Oklahoma just down the road here for me slanting. So Steve is the two teams out here. Doing layup lines warming up. You know, we've talked a lot about you. We talked about them on Tuesday. We've given them some airtime here. Give us a little insight to what Okamoto's brings in store today. Well, Oklahoma's twenty three and two on the season twelve in their division ranked number two in the state. I'm max preps as you said in the last segment number one sixty three in the nation. They're averaging fifty five points per game their last state championship as we said was in nine hundred eighty two they won the year before also in nineteen ninety one to give themselves the back to back for their last finals appearance was in two thousand six which they lost eighty five to eighty four in double overtime to Saginaw Arthur hill in Brennan, you got some some interesting facts about that with your understood that well yet that game back in two thousand six was the last time that there has been an overtime game. State final ever since. Then every game has been finished in regulation. And ever since then the average margin of victory. So and the twelve games played since then only four games were won by single digits. The average margin of victory in those twelve games is fifteen point three points. If you take out the four single digit games, it's twenty one and a half points. So I mean, you know, it's not exactly close games. We've had in the past decade or so almost over a decade. You know in the state final. So I mean, I mean, we know some people talked about rankings and stop maybe MHSAA should rank the playoffs in districts and stuff like that. I mean, how do you feel about that raise? The question is how are we gonna make sure that the two best teams in the state of the two most deserving teams getting finals could also you look at the teams early in the playoffs who are upsetting these big programs, and you have to give him the credit. They won those games. They want them fair and square but teams with easy road to the finals. It's really not. It's really not respecting teams who have the hard road to get there. And then just have a blowout win in the final. Even even you d in their undefeated season in two thousand sixteen almost too easy game in that final. Yeah. Definitely. I mean, they won that game by twenty points back in two thousand sixteen we saw last year Clarkston be column west Ottawa by forty three points. I mean, that's that's just despicable that a a state finals game would be a forty three point margin of victory in. I mean even this year Detroit renaissance and their first playoff game played. In the district. Quarterfinal loss Detroit renaissance is a very good basketball team. They're a top ten team in the state of Michigan. They've got Chandler Turner. Who's gonna play D one basketball, bowling green? I mean, I'd be very upset. If I was renaissance and you had to play the number one team in the state being UB, even if we had a bye in the dish. It gives a very serious advantage to teams who have a relatively weak road to the quarter or semi finals gives them a very serious advantage in getting those games getting the bras and center building up the heightened building up the prestige of their program versus teams that have to play the best guys in the states. So early on in aren't really getting the respect that they deserve throughout their entire season. And it's not even necessarily a lot of people think that it's you know, these far out teams like oh, KOMO in Howell Lincoln had the easy roads. But it's it's it's right here in our neighborhoods. We saw last year Warren dealers out give them credit. They were very good basketball team. They had a lot of strong players on there. And they did the work that they needed to in the quarterfinal in beating the cubs last year at Callahan hall. Book before that the highest ranked team that deals south played prior to their match against the cubs in the quarterfinal. It wasn't the comb Dakota who is ranked ninety ninth in the state teams are still warming up here at the present center, again, thank you for joining us on his pre-game show Brennan, why do you want us through the last three games that the cubs are going to face against today? Yes. So the cubs back in the regional semi they beat their Catholic League match up rival de LA Salle sixty four fifty one win that game by thirteen points. They went they then went on to take on Grosse Pointe north in the regional final and one that one by twenty and then Stephen we saw it on Tuesday the state quarter verse Rosedale ninety one to fifty four. The cubs are just doing everything right right now, they're playing very good basketball. I think if you look at the numbers, and he's on paper, and you take the eye test to me, they just looked like the best team left, and what about Oklahoma wrote us through their last three games. So Oklahoma regionals regional semi took on cold water and win that game by elevens or forty four to thirty three other then went on and only had a five point. Win over DeWitt in the regional final. And then again on Tuesday in grand Blanc in the state quarterfinal. They came away with a big win against east Kent would when he met gained fifty to forty five the most skating by recently. But you know, they are hearing the breslin and say anything can happen. That's why we play the game. Yeah. That low score in the regional final. Really catches my eye only putting up thirty nine points, whereas cups had two players total in their gaming. It's Roseville that scored forty points, which is more than than than Oklahoma's had never mentioned east Kenwood victory. And what I want to talk about a few players oak. Miss had obviously their.
