"Welcome back to the outcomes rocket. Sal Marquez here and thank you for tuning in. Again I have the privilege of hosting Tim Lance today. He's the president and Chief Operating Officer at Care Syntax before that Tim was also the Senior Vice President and general manager at Sentry Data, systems, and previous to that managing. Director of supply chain. Academy, he's had multiple leadership roles across the healthcare. Industry and today he gonNA be talking to us more about health technology and what they're doing to impact global healthcare markets with their work at Care Syntax Tim such a pleasure to have you here with us today. Thank you. It's great to be here. I appreciate you having me. Absolutely. So before we get into the work that you guys do at Care Syntax me a little. Bit about you and what inspires your work in healthcare. Yeah happy to so you know for me it's a it's been an interesting journey into healthcare. I think a lot of people get into healthcare sometimes because their parents are involved in was no exception to that. So my mother is a clinician she was in healthcare for thirty years and I learned from a very. Early, age how important it was to have a well-functioning high quality, affordable healthcare system in any community that I also got to see how complex it was for my mom both as a clinician as administrator and healthcare I watched a lot of challenges that she faced and so I promised myself that I would never work healthcare and graduated from college I immediately started working in healthcare. And You know I think today you know almost twenty years later now right would. Kinda keeps. ME excited and getting up every morning. Excited about what we're doing is you I experienced firsthand during my time spent several years with with your on healthcare and I worked in the frontline. Saw You know I'm not a clinician but I worked side by side with doctors and nurses and social workers and case managers to try to improve communication and coordination and clinical care inside seen firsthand how complex it is and how difficult it is. But critical it is to you know to our communities into our societies and in some ways I. think it's a it's a little bit how I feel about golf right as you can have A. kind of a a tough rounding Gulf. But you have that one magical shot met keeps coming back for more in healthcare little bit that same way. I think we tend to fixate sometimes on all the problems and healthcare. But then you are on the front lines and you watch how you can save a life writer keep a family together bring somebody back from the brink of death and I think there's no greater thing that that I'd want to spend my time doing than than trying to increase the number of great shots that we have in our healthcare system. So love at your those those winds that keep you in the game for the long haul. And so I, appreciate you sharing that. Plenty of like I'm not GonNa get a nail care you graduate. You're, in. Healthcare. I there's something about something magnetic about the purposeful kind of impact. You could have in health care and I and I share that with yeah and I think a lot of listeners share that with us Tim, and so tell us about care syntax and what you guys are doing add value to the healthcare ecosystem. Yes. So I think care syntax is we're very focused on. Surgery and on the or which I think in some respects especially in the US a little bit is oftentimes I don't WanNa say overlooked. But when we think about population health and a lot of the trends in the last ten years and we tend to hear a lot about chronic disease management and end of life care in these kinds of things and we're very. Focused on surgery, which you know if you take a step back, you know it's a, it's not the majority of cases in our healthcare system, but it is certainly the majority of revenue in the healthcare system for most hospitals comes out of the or and it's also a place where from a quality standpoint you know a lot of quality problems can begin. In the or you know if those surgeries aren't optimal. So this is where we've chosen to focus and you know in our vision as a business is to really enable caregivers to save lives on specifically for us. Kind of Our big vision is millions of lives around the world you know to be saved through use of our technology by by those. Caregivers at the frontline. So that's really really where we're focused and the think You always think about adding value to the ecosystem I, like to look at it in a couple of ways but I think the thing that makes us really unique that we've you know we've chosen to look holistically at the healthcare ecosystem and within that world of of the or. And try to look at stakeholder alignment. So you have kind of your clinical stakeholders, financial stakeholders, stakeholders, and operations, and supply chain, and then obviously the patient. So we really try to look with our technology at how we can bring those key stakeholders together right and drive convergence there, and then we do the same thing around the process side. So looking at kind of that end end process of what it takes to deliver a high quality safe. Surgery and so you've got you know operational components, throughput capacity management logistics supplies, and then you've got quality and safety, and then you have all the analytics learning and Research and development that comes on the back end in that sort of trust creates a continuous cycle. Then that's really where we look to add the most business value is by bringing those stakeholders together and by creating value, not just one small facet but looking at how can create. Value

5 Retirement Mistakes You Might Be Making That Could Be Keeping You From Financial Freedom by Phil Town
"Five retirement mistakes you might be making that could be keeping you from financial freedom by Phil town of rule one investing dot. com. If you want to retire comfortably and many Americans believe they are preparing to do. So in the best way, possible chances are good that you're just not making the returns you need in order to retire when you want to often the obstacles we face have more to do with the mistakes we make when it comes to investing for retirement. The problem is most people have no idea whether or not they are on the right plan towards building their retirement wealth retirement planning can be tricky for. A few reasons. The first reason is that a lot of different factors affect how you plan for retirement. These include things like your salary how much you're saving the investment returns you're getting currently and the benefits you're getting from your retirement account. Another factor is that everyone's actual retirement plan is different. This leaves things very open to varying opinions and options when it comes to what you should do with your money. Generally, retirement planning is about timing and about not losing money, which is rule number one. That brings me to the question of what's the best way to save for retirement. The best way is to learn to invest find companies that you love and understand and buy them when they're on sale when you do that, you're almost guaranteed to not lose money. There is no one-size-fits-all retirement plan for everyone, but there is a place where everyone should start with that in mind. Here are five retirement mistakes to avoid and what to do if you found yourself in a situation where you made any of them. One you haven't saved enough for retirement. Mistake number one is that you haven't saved enough for that. You haven't saved at all when I first started investing I hadn't saved anything, but the money that you invest is going to make you more money than anything else in your whole life. So the earlier you start the better crank down your expenses and crank up the income every dollar you can get into that retirement account now is going to make a huge difference for you down the road. To your borrowing from your retirement money to pay expenses. Mistake number two is that you are borrowing from your retirement money to pay your expenses. You can't do this spend money only on the things you need people often make the mistake of lifestyle creep. This is what happens when you start to make more money and you buy a more expensive car or House with it quit trying to impress people that you don't like anyway if you're spending out of your retirement account, it is crucial that you leave that alone if you spend that money you're going to get penalized by getting. Neither of those things is a good idea. Three you're paying too much interest on bad debt. Mystique number three is you're paying too much interest on bad debt. First of all, you shouldn't be paying very much interest right now interest rates are at historical lows. If you're paying eighteen percent interest than something very bad is happening forget about investing. If you have a lot of credit card debt, the first thing you have to do is get rid of that bad debt. If you could make eighteen percent a year, you're doubling your money every four years you don't WanNa double someone else's money every four years. Another kind of bad debt is when you're borrowing money to buy, you don't need don't be borrowing money to go to the mall that's mall investing, and that's not a great idea save whatever you have to pay down your bad debt as fast as you can. For your becoming inactive physically and socially. This one doesn't have to do with money, but with your well being, it's easy to become inactive physically and socially this will play a big part in your retirement years. You've got to be active physically and you've got to be active socially. For example, there's a retirement community down in Florida called the villages, which has one, hundred, ten, thousand seniors, and what they all have in common is their socially interactive and they're very physically active. They have something like one hundred golf courses down there when I went down there to play Polo, three, thousand people came out to watch and the old wanted to learn about the game staying active and social is so important especially in retirement. Five you're not taking investing seriously enough. Mistake number five is that you're not taking investing seriously enough. This one happens to a lot of people because they just don't think they can do it in our podcast with my daughter Danielle she admits that she doesn't take investing seriously yet. She didn't even want to learn how to invest, but that's all about fear and not knowing where to start think about buying stocks like making any meaningful purchase you do a ton of research before buying a new car or a new house right? You can handle this investing is no different than that. When you take it seriously, it's going to change your life.
Big Tech Funds a Think Tank Pushing for Fewer Rules. For Big Tech.
"Dig. Tech firms are schmoozing regulators into to not doing their jobs. Thirty four anti-trust officials were wined and nine last year by the global anti-trust into the suit, a part of the Antonin Scalia Law School at George. Mason University in Fairfax Virginia basically don't regulate us. Please enjoy this delicious meal. Global Antitrust Institute is funded mostly entirely by big companies affiliated foundations including Amazon Google qualcomm George Mason I covered it when I was at the Washington, Post they were always doing this kind of thing like putting up, you know. Being very friendly to corporate corporate citizens as I recall during this time when they were just getting started. Trying to attract a bigger level of professor there and so talk about this Mr Academics in terms of these things that get funded at universities, you institute Scott. Galloway Institute of Jabal Thank for example. That's right. like it's it's were. Universities are not immune from the lure of capitalism and a big component of. Your ability to get tenure is to get research funded, and it's difficult if you WANNA know. If. You WanNa. Know the outcome and a conclusion of research. Just find who's paid for it. Yeah, and in the case of most academic research. It's a lot of times it's funded. By nonpartisan sources are the university itself, and so if there is a a lease bad version of peer reviewed research, you're GONNA. Find it typically universities, but these think tanks if they're funded by. Certain And we have him on the left care we fund. We found groups to do research to basically support our know our narrative so i. don't think this is anything unusual. The question is abound power in that is. In addition to this think tank Sarah now more fulltime Amazon. Lobbyists making I would bet somewhere between four hundred eight hundred thousand dollars a year. Then there are sitting US senators now one hundred full time lobbyist from Amazon living in DC, taking all of these nice women and men to to golf into dinner and saying hey, we just a big fan of your leadership. We fight to get involved in your campaign by the way when this whole antitrust off comes up. We assume that you're you're for capitalism. Your four consumer lower consumer prices. And this is the danger, but I don't think these think tanks. We have on both sides nervous now whenever I time talking to one today and I was like Oh, where did you get your money? Like I never thought this like in terms of. The university and I was like I'm going to have to check in case, I'm. Saying something that sounded reasonable, but it was sort of like who's paying your bills and you know there was some controversy around some of this Kobe testing of where these these researchers have, it just feels like a lot of steph feels. Bogus like. It feels bogus when they're doing this and they're trying to influence, but I think many some universities are doing real research. Others are much more pay for play and I think that's that's really when I was a does. You've inspired her synapse farmer talking about this when I was? Five years into my Nyu Kerr invited me to a meeting where they were talking about doing some research about around financial markets and the impact on IPO's and They admitted meeting. And there was someone from the Nasdaq, and they were willing to fund it Funds Research and fund even fund center, and as one of the guys in the meeting Professor Bruce Buchanan who I think's one of the clear blue flame thinking economists in the world you know at the end of the meeting, said a not comfortable with the Nasdaq taking money. Money from the Nasdaq for research around the financial markets, because ultimately we're. GonNa end up saying that that the Nasdaq has the right you know. He just wasn't comfortable with private enterprise being injected into academic research, and then the meeting ended and I was like what the hell are you thinking? We have an opportunity to go great research here. Don't so pedantic. And as I've thought about it I'm wrong and he was right. Yeah, you can't help it. You can't help, but if they're paying for like all the smoking ones so much damage in terms of like smoking wants. We're like cigarettes aren't bad. That went on for a long time and Whatever the whatever the research is, it just seems like if it's cooked, it's cooked then. How do you pay for like the university should presumably just pay. Pay For right and live and die on the quality of the research, but that's sort of naive. I suspect you in the majority of about any sort of fifteen year overdue apology to a Professor Buchanan Vice. Chancellor Ingo Walter felt the same way that this was just. This creates too much opportunity for bias research so anyways. Net Net in it's a sample size of one, but Nyu takes that got role being a neutral arbiter very seriously. and. You have these funding you know. I'm thinking of all the different organizations are they seem like the like their criminal justice stuff Very Friedman! It feels like it's really good research right now, and that's the thing it's like who you have. They should at least be very clear about who's paying for it, so you know and and what they might turf. What what the what reports they might put in the drawer like the government is doing right now,
Trump will not visit Capitol to pay respects to civil rights icon John Lewis
"The world said goodbye to a civil rights icon in our nation's Capitol today and elsewhere, representative John Lewis honored in ceremonies at the Capitol. Talk about how that's impacting people where you are and what you saw, but it's hard to underestimate His impact on the civil rights leader. He was literally one of think a gang of six lieutenants under Martin Luther King back in the sixties, and at the time I think he may have been 25 26 years old Martin Luther King was only in his early thirties. When he gave his I have a dream speech, and we forget, you know, there's such towering figures were way think that they were much older than they were. And John Lewis died at 80 has had this incredibly long career. Hey, was beaten to within an inch of his life defending their right to vote and equal rights. For African Americans. This man is a hero. His bravery is is just breathtaking. One comment. I read from a colleague of his today and I was really taken with, she said. It was during the time of the hippies when John Lewis forever wore a three piece suit and carried a briefcase because he wanted to be taken seriously and thought to be ah, involved with important stuff. And you don't see that much anymore. And not only that, but hey also recalled that when he was arrested for civil disobedience, certainly not violence, but simply Protesting and using his first Amendment right to speak up. He always smile for the mug shot because he goes, I didn't do anything wrong. Why should I be doing anything about smiling here truly one of a kind of the benefit of all Americans then and now you go ahead and what's astonishing is that President Trump once again? Is not doing anything to pay his respects to this American icon. Hey, was asked, the president was asked if he was going to go up to the capital to pay respects to John Lewis, who was lying in state. They're one of I think only three African Americans to ever do that Rosa Parks. And Ah, uh, Thurgood Marshall. I think you were the other two. And he the president goes. No, I'm not going to no explanation. No comments about John Lewis. And, of course, he and John Lewis. We're not B f F S. John Lewis famously did not show up to the President's in all your old saying that he thought he was an illegitimate president. That he thought that he or at least the Russians did everything they could to get him elected and that it wasn't a legitimate presidency. He was going to attend the inaugural A good opportunity if nothing else, and this is a crass way to look at it to score some points. And we're all taught from a very early age. We show respect for those who have passed on it. It seems like an easy opportunity for the president take advantage of well. The president has not done that. For many leaders who died over the last couple years. John McCain, notably He did not was not invited to the funeral but didn't even bother to crash He was playing golf at his name escapes me now the congressman from Maryland who died another African American civil rights leader. Also had clashes with the president. He did not show up for that, then think I think the only major funeral that President Trump has shown up for was George H. W. Bush.
New York Liberty, Seattle Storm players walk off court during national anthem
"Sisters are in the news, the New York Liberty players left the court during the national anthem as it was play The New York Liberty and The Seattle Storm walked off the court as part of the Social Justice initiative. Now I don't know in tbe body is my grandmother would say who covers the NBA quite like Charles Holland from the Minnesota spokesman recorder, So I had to bring him on the show. Let us show to find out What happened was this plan is everybody upset is everybody's supporting what what is going on here? All right now. Thank you for having me on your show right now. It wasn't surprised. No, we had a phone conference with With the commissioner with this week and I'm not. I asked a question about you know what? What are they going to do? In terms of really honor? You know, beyond a tailor shop when the jersey on their back and those talk thanks. She just wouldn't report everything the player is going to do so. As of now, there's been no backlash effect on Twitter following my people that's on Twitter. Everybody on the floor. I think somebody lives of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in DC up 90 pride. No, he wasn't watching if he was playing golf. Oh, we breath off. Come on. You know, I saw the pictures on Selena, you know, But you know that offer show the dope every day has been in the forefront ofthe Social justice law before Colin Chapman that Neil Long before it became fashionable as we're still doing. This is to show the numbers that they are going to take the leadership role. And it happily that these are sisters who take the leadership role and make the NBA now because they start next week. What they going to do what they're gonna Cometa? Because you know you don't show it up. OK, so I've been on Commodus and do something different because they don't and I. Luckily, I'm gonna be on another talk conference called this week with the MBA. I'm asked that question days in the women's I wouldn't do that. But the MBA got a different situation, but they got a law. They have to be outer or not out there doing a national talent. They cannot leave doing that. Doing the national anthem, So it will be interesting to see what it is. They're gonna wave that rule or they're going to do a stump of spontaneous to what the ladies did today. And how the NBA's gonna respond to that. So I was being stupid. I had the phone. I thought that was, you know, I mean, this is bigger than basketball players. They said that all along with the health issue that something's going on the floor that they always said that Again those eight minutes almost nine minutes. Took the world Okay, you are. You can speak. You know You're the journalist or you are a player or you are anybody If you want touched by that and recognise that could have been you. You see that? That brings a whole different perspective. And so therefore I think the ladies is showing that they can do more than just Chucho.
Fox Sports debuts virtual fans for MLB live broadcast
"Night Major League Baseball became the first major sport to go ahead and broadcast games. Weird state where people are thrilled to have entertainment as we're talking, we don't know how thing rated. Crates well. I find it particularly amusing. That Fox sports has said they will debut virtual fans in the live broadcast during this shortland twenty twenty season, so the people people who watch this well as seen CGI fans brought to them. You know with Hollywood special effects and I have to say I think it's an awfully good idea. Well, the initial broadcasts with the crowd noise has been a significant improvement over just watching a silent baseball field with no fans and you can hear. Hear the BASS coaches talking to each other like that's not good, but you know they're really trudging forward now. Baseball and other team sports are in this odd situation where there is so much money on the line that they kind of have to move forward, and they're doing it in whatever way they can, and the audience at least from the preliminary number suggests they want it to the ratings for some of the preseason scrimmages in these major markets were gigantic and. And Fox reported that they had sold out ninety percent of their ad inventory for these sixty game major league baseball season that is going to happen start over the next couple of months, and this is really the big test. Because yes, there's been tennis. There's been golf, but this is the big restart of team sports, and the NBA is going to follow, and they're all living in this bubble in Orlando Florida. Trying to get the NBA restarted Major League Baseball. Baseball is trying to restart even as one of the players on the Washington nationals tested positive for covid nineteen. The day that the season was set to start, so they're going to be these setbacks, but I don't see the League's canceling their seasons because of them, there's just so much money at stake. They're going to trudge forward and the big one. Coming up is the NFL and what they're going to do. The revenue for Fox sports for Turner for ESPN. Is desperately needed I. This is billions of dollars in lost money if they can't get these games up and start selling this. Thing so it's critical and. Obviously there's pressure all around to find a way to make it work and for the NFL which is by far the biggest draw in television, the training camps are set to start and the players union has agreed tentatively to a testing procedure, but there's no agreement on whether there's going to be fans at these games, and whether the season is going to come off like it would otherwise they cancelled some of the preseason games, but whether the actual season is. Is going to happen and how that's going to look is still a big question, and for television that billions and billions of dollars in revenue in the balance, and we're already seeing several college football leagues, either pushing their seasons or cancelling them entirely, and that's going to be the next domino effect. This virus cannot get under control in the next month or two. Then you're GonNa see College. Football pretty much eliminated for the fall in my in my prediction. Some leagues will probably try to continue, but ultimately if you can't keep college players safe, then you can't have a football season so. We'll see what the NFL does, but college football is a gigantic business as well on a more frivolous note. I will just observe that Fox. Had plans in terms of the baseball game to to thin the digital crowd. If there isn't like an eight to one game, and the crowd normally would go, so at least they're keeping that part real. Wow, can they make the dodgers? Fans leave in the seventh inning. I'm sure the virtual died. Here's fans will want to get on the freeway. Justice, the real ones
The 2 Choke Points in Selling and their 3 Causes
"Hello and welcome. My name is Greg. Martinelli and this is the egg sales professional podcast. The purpose of this podcast is to make you the best salesperson or sales manager possible in agribusiness today we're talking about the to chokepoints in selling and their three causes. which part of the sales process are you stuck on well? Every manufacturing, process, service, provider or business unit has a choke point. Point. Every salesperson also has them in their selling process and a choke point is the number one limiter in process. It's the one process that one service or that one step in your selling strategy that holds up all the others. Last time we covered the topic of stress more specifically. We covered your stress. The egg sales profession who goes out on a daily basis and calls on. On livestock and crop producers today we're going to cover one critical cause of your stress, and that is the chokepoint in your selling process in a feed mill. The chokepoint is typically the pelleting and drying process of the pellets in a grain elevator. It's the speed of the dump pit, and possibly drying grain. In what year in many manufacturing process. It's the packaging line in other words. Words you can process potatoes into potato chips fairly easy, except for the last step, which is putting in a bag and putting in a box that may take maybe the choke points what slows everything else down working with sales, people in all different aspects of agribusiness I can tell you. The most common points are prospecting and closing if you look at the selling process in a linear. Linear fashion it might go something like this fine prospects on them. Ask questions present products and services close follow up complete the new customer paperwork train them on how to use the products and services coordinate future orders, and then provide ongoing support to ensure a long term relationship with your customer that might be including handling complaints and expanding the purchases with your company last mentioned the most. Most common chokepoints are prospecting enclosing have also found there are three common causes, and they are lack of knowledge, a lack of skill in a lack of value. We'll start off with the first. One lack of knowledge is the easiest remedy. oftentimes a sales person just doesn't know the steps involve or how to implement them with their customers. DISC is a great example if you're not familiar. Familiar, you should be I. Talk about it all the time I. Think it's Great. It isn't a four quadrant system or D I S C, or sometimes they use colors to depict the four quadrants typically salespeople set out in their territory and sell based on their own style. The problem is the customer doesn't want you to sell in your style. They want you to sell in their. Their style for example, if a salesperson is a data techie, Kinda person, they love to fill the presentations with data they sell on data, even if their customers hate data and technical infant, information will sales, people can remedy this with training, workshops, sales, meetings and experience to increase their knowledge and open up this chokepoint. Let's get to the next chokepoint and that is a lack of skill. This in this example, the salesperson knows what to do. They just aren't very good at it yet. And the yet is an important part of that sentence. Many salespeople fail to implement what they know they need to do. Because they're either afraid of making a mistake or they will look incompetent. Many of them worry. They will appear pushy or the worst being sales. -I, so they stick to their old ways of doing things. You need to become comfortable. Comfortable with trying new techniques to improve your skill. Let me give you an example in the sports. World Golf is a great example of a lack of skill. It's a very simple game. If you think about you, take a little club. You hit a ball down the fairway and into a Little Cup. Eighteen Times as Robin. Williams pointed out one of his comedy routines. It's not rocket science. However, it can take a lifetime to develop that skill how? How do we develop the skills? Well, certainly, when you know, have some knowledge how to hold the club and all that Kinda stuff, but most importantly we just need to get out there and golf and put it into practice and develop our skill in sales cold. Calling is a great example when it comes to the lack of skill as a sales person you know of your roles is to find call on and sell new customers, however when you. You get out there the fear of meeting someone new kicks, in and you stumble on connecting or asking good questions on the sales call the socializing part at the opening of the sales called goes well. Then you start asking a few questions related to your products and try to get down to the business of selling you get stuck on what to ask and fear upsetting the prospect, so you go back to the social discussions on weather and crop. and. Local events etcetera. You gain little to no information which would help you. Come back for your next appointment. You are now stuck in that called. Let me know if you ever need anything or any of our products, which is right next to I'm happy with what I'm doing now I'll keep you in mind zone. We all get stuck in these zones, and they are no fun. We'll the last cause for a choke point in your selling process might. Might, simply be a lack of volume, not enough prospects, not enough good prospect, not asking enough good questions, not asking enough closing style questions, not following up enough, nor fast enough and dropping the ball with a lack of good prospects is a very common limiter. I see sales people

Heat Index to Near 100°; Afternoon Rain, Thunder Likely in Washington DC Area
"Not a Storm Team four. Meteorologist Chuck Bell, Hard to imagine. This day probably qualifies a little relief, Chuck Absolutely. Every day. Saturday through yesterday, National Airport was 94 or higher. We should be a degree or two below that today, just barely, but a lot of extra clouds around should help. Hold most areas into the upper eighties and low nineties. Today. The Heat advisory for southern Maryland is from noon until eight o'clock. The D C Metro is not included in the Heat advisor today just won't meet The criteria, which is several consecutive hours with Heat index is up over 101 105 degrees. That being said the Heat index and Daisy will probably close to 100 for much of the afternoon. Hard to believe that a heat index of 100 is a break, but compared to 105 or six we'll take every little bit we could get. There will be another pie chance for some rain and thunderstorms today, not the kind of severe weather we dealt with yesterday but still a pop up thunderstorm. Not out of the question. And anytime your thunder. That means that lightning is present. Always good to get off the golf course and out of the pool and away from any local waterways. And please be cautious around it. Highs Today Low nineties up Brady's in the suburbs tomorrow another fairly cloudy day on Friday with a passing shower, not a big rain impact. Tomorrow would've pop up rain shower thunderstorm. Not out of the question on your Friday afternoon. Tomorrow's highs. Good stay below 90 degrees of national Airport. That's cool. Snap 89. Then over the weekend, we dry out and warm up again Saturday, partly to mostly sunny, 92 Lots of Sunday Sunshine High

Thanks for having me drew and you also. And people really loved it. That's we've set the intention. We did a documentary by the way. If anybody hasn't hasn't watched that documentary before a broken bring to. Click on the show notes. We'll make it available for anybody who hasn't seen, and you can sign up and check it out and see some of Ryan's recommendations. rebuilt on today's conversation so. We set out the intention when we first did that interview that we wanted to do an interview for the podcast. I'm glad it happened at the first interview that I'm doing in person in the world of. Semi Corentin and social distancing so Thank you for coming into the office. It's an honor. Thanks for having me so I wanNA start off with something which is I want to talk about dance? DANCE REVOLUTION So tell US anybody who doesn't know what it is. Tell us what it is, and why he became passionate about. Yeah, so dance dance. Revolution is a video game. It's an extra game. Extra Games are things that incorporate. And Gaming And or active video games it was followed by the success of like Nintendo. We for instance that became very popular dance dance. Revolution's interesting because it was popularized when I was a kid. Probably before that I think in the eighties and nineties, and it's essentially a game where you're controller is a pad that you stand on in the middle is you're standing place? You have an Arrow pointing forward pointing backwards to left and went to the right. There's arrows coming up from the bottom of the screen, and you have this answer key at the top. Top with those different directionally facing arrows, and it's to music, and it was a Japanese video game developed by Nami, and it was super popular in Arcades at home on the playstation, two and I grew up as a very overweight sedentary kid I had a pretty severe concussion in preschool, and so that created some concussion induced adhd so I was addicted to video games, and I think I would then have met the criteria for video game addiction now, which is like it wasn't every day, but it was like four hours a day of video gaming. into early call of duty before it was like an e sports thing so if I kept on it, I could probably been pretty well right now. Playing golf duty but I actually came across the home version of dance dance revolution when I was a kid in high school, actually no middle school early middle school and I lost a lot of weight playing that in my living room and it got me into. That got me to lose weight and it was motivating had all the elements we might talk about being important for an exercise program that is sensitive to brain health. And then it got me into the gym, and when I was in high school I joined a gym across from my high school, started weightlifting, watching personal trainers, we can go into that later, but essentially kick-started my personal health, an interest in fitness, and with that fitness that is cognitively enhanced meaning that I wasn't on an exercise bike, watching the news or staring into space I was cognitively engaged in that program since then dance dance revolution has been present. Among a lot of research context and neuro rehabilitation in older adults. It's not really that accessible anymore. You can't just get it off the shelf as much as you could. Previously, but it's really paved the way for a whole industry of active video gaming extra gaming. And it has spun off also clinical or serious extra gaming games that are used for health and clinical contexts such as some of the solutions. We use it the Pacific Brain Health Center. For the listeners who are like way, why are we starting the conversation video game? This all make sense so you know in reading about your story and getting a chance to get to know you over the last year, or so as we've been introduced by our mutual friend, Dr Shawn Patel who's a regenerative medicine doctor here in Los Angeles who's been on the podcasts before linked to that. I got a chance to see how your struggle as child especially with weight fitness and being sedentary. You found something you found something that created joy inside of you, and that's actually really related to a big part of what you teach right now we'll start off with the basics and we'll talk about what brain health coaches and some of the science of it, but you found something passionate that you that got you excited to move. Move something that you enjoyed and I. think that such an important thing as simple as it sounds. This video game was the thing that got started. That was ultimately the thing that starting your journey down this pathway of understanding the power of really what exercise can do for the brain, so let's start there. Let's start off with the basics you know. We've done so many episodes on the power of exercise, but as a refresher. Tell US why exercise is so important and what it does for the brain. Yeah, and there's been an explosion of research and media coverage about this I. Like to say that the mainstream popularity around exercise. The brain was really kick started by the book spark by Dr John Radi ever grateful for the work. He's done in popularizing that and twenty eighteen, the second most popular Ted Talk. In that year was Dr Wendy Suzuki talking about exercise in the brain and a lot of mainstream coverage, and you know in New, York Times and medium covering on boosting these posts on exercising, the brain has become very popular, and that's amazing, because it's also jumping on the kind of. The coattails of neural plasticity research showing that the brain can change. I think this audience has been very well presented that information right we to our brains were fixed. We were taught in high school. They have a certain amount of brain cells. Will Never. It's all downhill from there and it turns out. That's not true exactly. Neuro plasticity, so the brain's ability to functionally or structurally change. In response to experiences,

"Okay. All right. Now I kinda gave away my horse. Your Horse Charm Yeah. Wrong. Roms robs a good horse to have and based on odd draftking odds. They you know obviously it's done by money. By Value Roms and expensive by. He's eleven thousand, so that would qualify him as a horse okay. So my horse based on those qualifications. Is Ricky Fowler now. He's not my. He's not my pick to win. Oh Roms might pick the win. Picked to win. Yeah, okay so my pick to win. In, this based on number is a mid tier guy. Is Jordan spieth. What I think speaks GonNa win really yeah, a he's had success of discourse before, but man so you. Yeah. He's always been doing is playing Texas Golf. He's been spending thirteen weeks playing golf in Texas. Yes, so okay here's. To it, so I gotta sleeper dude that nobody's talking about. That's a Texas guy to or been Texas guy for a long time that again when no one talks about them like this. Only gas you already know you're already know. Taxes Guy. No one talks about him. let's see there's a couple of times when people are talking about. He's not. He's not a Texas native. Okay, hang on, but he lives in Texas now, and no one's talking about him and yet when people do start talking about him, It's not necessarily a good thing, but it fires him up anymore. Patrick Read Bra. That dues been. He's been another dude in Texas getting work done. Okay, so that's a good one get. That's my sleeper. Guy Is like man. This dude talk about a guy who is also a boss striker. Yup, not necessarily crazy long, but long enough and yet. Let Him, get near to get near contention and all boy. That's a good one And coming off coming off of such a layoff and stuff like that. It's like I'm. Working at if you're the gambling type, that's how you gotTA. Look at this tournament. You have to look at it to two things one who has to go through the inconvenience of travel. To who doesn't and type of player because I'm telling you colonia been there numerous times. It's a course that you should probably know, but it's a course that you can't just show up. After playing in Florida during the break Arizona during the break. You gotTA. Texas has to be factored in. If you're coming off rust, I would agree with that except the forecast isn't for the wind and so with the humidity. And temperature. That's going to be there. I'm not afraid to say that. A Florida Guy is south Florida guy especially is going to be I because a South Florida guy is like dealing with that kind of humidity and and plane on Bermuda. So. Those guys. Those guys wouldn't take out of the mix But like I said there's so. That's my my sleeper. Guy Is Patrick read by the guy who picked the win is is Jon Rahm. And you said you want like you, said a mid tier dude, so based while based. Here's what I'm saying like. A Horse for me was my horse to win. Is Ricky Fowler based on the numbers on draft kings like he's expensive, so he. Ricky Fowler if I'm picking it from the Horse to mid Tier, two sleeper horse, Rickie, Fowler a win a it tear my absolute. pick the tournament Jordan speeds. And my sleeper is someone. Like Zach. Johnson who we talked about before? WHO's one it who gets? It is not long always finds the fairway. So Ricky Jordan Zach for me. All right I'M GONNA go? I'M GONNA go buck wild. Moody like on I'm ago Bug wide on this one. Because I well I mean. Mid Tier because of the world rankings. I don't I'm not on draftkings so I don't know. But a guy who's one there before and because of that experience and because of. The, whole rust factor for everyone else not being afraid whatsoever. Oh I can't believe I'm going here, but. I feel it man I feel like I'm I, looked at that list and was like Oh man and again. Coming in nobody saying nothing but. This man's birthday is coming up next week and now for the four play. Let's go Phil Mickelson own. Yeah Leave Means Fiftieth Birthday is coming up. Now. Let's see we can fill out on draftkings. Yeah, it's not this weekend but it's common. It's not think. Next. It's the week that the US Open was supposed to be held. which is next week so I we're going to do a Madyan caddy draft King's entry real quick. Okay. Here, we go, so we're going to go. I'm doing fill, I'll tell you where he's at Yup. And I love like I've been waiting so long to be able to get back on draft kings and do this because I I love it. I love doing the fantasy golf all right friend of the PODCAST PAT. Pres- automatically gets in our lineup, of course, which is another guy to? Fill it qualifies only seventy three hundred. So that's mid-term. Okay, so you want, read the will. And I got Rahm read fill. You know what let's throw in Smu. Kid Lives in Texas Bryce into Shambo Glue. As my pick for the caddy lineup. Just okay all right that he's all you your your tone. I talk to Latinos. We have in our lives because he lives in the Bahamas like he's not. He's got a place in Florida and the Bahamas and so. The one thing that scares me about like some that the only I love bracing death, but he needs a couple of weeks for all his technical stuff to Kinda. For the feel of being that technical to come completely into place in tournament situations I was. Okay if you put them in, that's cool I. Hope Win just because you did that so direct..

"I think the biggest challenge is going to be. For the or and I think the biggest challenge is going to be. For the tour to not allow the minority. Backlash, the minority of people. Don't mean color wise. I mean the minority of people that will be trying to jump on a soapbox, and and like doing a Gotcha to the players in caddies, when in the heat of battle. They aren't social distancing so you? Know 'cause I better trying to keep away I. Try to keep you know because here's the thing like quite honestly. I I I'm a hundred percent with Pat Perez. You tested negative. Your caddy tested negative. If you're going out there to play, does go. Let's play. Let's play like. Let's play like I as a caddy. Quite honestly. So. I did I talked to one caddy and player who were a hundred percent like you know. We gotTA figure this out. We're GONNA. Be Social distancing. They came up with a plan. Like here's how we're going to do it. You know Blah Blah this and it's all, but I also not ask I was like so. Do you think you're going to be able to maintain this? The whole time and the do laughed at me. It was like there's no chance there's no chance like this is it's Mike, Tyson everybody has a game plan to give him hugs. Like everybody's going to be social distancing and trying to do the right thing until you make two bogeys in a row, and you start running hot, and you're near to cut line, and then what and it's like. Are you going to 'em. and. There's no way that I would do this because I don't think it's right. I'm not going to take a player in the caddy the task if there grinding to make the cut and they forget that they're not social distancing. I know that there's plenty of people out there. That's going to do it I'm not going to be one of them. 'cause personally. It's just too tough right now, and I don't quite honestly I. Know. This is going to sound horrible. I don't care. I don't care you. Don't care what I don't I don't care that they don't social distant. Hey! I don't hear but wait no timeout. I don't care that they don't social distancing. They're not wearing masks. Because both of them had nasal swab and were tested negative before this thing started, and they're quarantined to the best of the ability that the PGA tour has in in in that sense I'm with you on. Get off the pot light up at some point. We're all going to have to take another risk and just go out there at some point I'm going to have to get on a plane again and like if that plane crashes and I don't have covid. Is that what they're going to say? Well? At least he didn't get Kovin like the plane still crash. That's still sucks like if I get in a car accident like people are still getting killed in car accidents and they don't have. Your coming over to my side, water or come on. Let's go. It's not that I'm coming over to your side. Are Nah I don't think I am. Here's what I still want. What I still want is I still think that there still has to be comprehensive testing on I. Still think that they're potentially this later on because we're. Because we're opening up again I. DO think that there is going to be another spike I. DO think it's GonNa. Come back. Again and it might come back in bigger numbers than it was before and I do think it is something dangerous, and it's a pandemic, and it's something that has to be. Taken into consideration, but I also. I also believe that. We in this country should at least have the right and opportunity that if you're willing to take the risk that you should be allowed to do so. I don't think in doing that then. That also gives you the right to put other people who don't want to take that risk at risk. By and that's the difficulty, but you as an individual should be able to do that, and it's it is. It is very similar to what how I would say how how smoking is like. If there's one if you have a building, you like. This is a smoking building like everybody in this building smoking, and so if you walk into that building, you know everybody in their smoking. You know what your clothes smell like. You know what potentially could happen like all of those things you have the right to not go in that building you have the right to. Have to deal with any of those people. You don't have to like if you don't want to you, don't you? Don't have to and I think that should be an option, too so, but that's how I. Feel about this at the I just think. I think it's easy to say something like that I think putting it into practice is really really hard. And we're GONNA all have to learn from the challenges ahead as we see live golf for the first time in quite some time, thirteen weeks left play, and let's do predictions now okay, I have. Would I? Believe is just an absolute filthy draftkings, tame. I don't do that man, but so you go ahead I know you don't but when I'm going to do. We're going to do like we typically do Eileen. A winner for a sleeper. A, mid, Tier..

"Thirteen week layoff. That you like ban, we couldn't go to a place raggedy. Just send driver. That's wide open fairway. We gotta go here. GotTa go we started molly. So! That's why I find this very interesting, because this place can eat you alive if you try. To play your typical game now off said that. When he's hitting on all cylinders that Justin Thomas is the best iron player in the world. He's a do. They could just show up at bomb iron off the tee all bay. Find his landing spot. Then go iron in and play really really welcome place absolutely so, and that's the thing. It's GonNa be like who can make the quickest adjustments to. getting back out there And Man let me tell you like the forecast for the week. It looks very very fortunate in. The Texas wins. Don't look horrific. That's the other thing about colonial is when the winds in Texas start, really pumping. It can be man they that it makes that even more brutal. There are very few straight holes that are straightforward and. In a sense, it's similar even though it's more wide open than where they're going next week at Hilton head. just because you're in the fairway doesn't necessarily. Allow you to take a deep breath. Because if you have a bad angle to wear some of the flags are, it can again be really really hard to do and in in looking at the forecast. How about this so? Thursday Texas Ninety three Friday Texas ninety, five Saturday Texas, Ninety, eight and Sunday in Texas Ninety seven saying. Because I mean. Yes that's that's just straight temperature, not heat index here. He likes going to be all over one hundred every day. Oh my gosh, which now for some guys who have not been training for that? hydration is going to be of the utmost importance and so is. Which? Brings US around to. I, don't from what I have. surmised in found out. And the tour could change this, but it's like box style lunches. So I don't know de can bring their own stuff. Yeah, yes, so that's one of the things, too, but like. If you get a real healthy salad. Let's say you're going to get a healthy. Tuna Salad. But you gotta throw that thing in the bag at. Seven o'clock in the morning, and it's ninety by ten and you're having lunch at noon. I'll know how awesome that lettuce in Tunis going to be. Get How much mayonnaise are you willing to do? Let's discuss that for a second because. I. AM intrigued as any because if we're being fair. Golf is a Country Club Sport Yup. These allowed. The most of these guys were brought up in the club circuit. As Kids So. How do I say this? There's GonNa. Be Adversity that these guys aren't used to dealing with in that is gonNA play into another whole bit of. challeges look what you're trying to say is sometimes these dudes come from spoiled backgrounds, and sometimes when you're on the PGA tour. If you've been there for a while, you are spoiled. Catered you're more spoiled than the general public knows about and so what happens when you take those? And then when you take those amenities that spoilt people get what happens when you take them away. How do those spoil people and start acting when it's like I'm very sorry, it's not been available now. One thing that has to be a public of course they're. They're going to be playing no forces. No colonials colonials completely private now. But what I see what you're saying, but because of the box lunch and all that, but look one of the enemies amenities that they didn't think they were gonNA have this week. They have that I think makes a huge difference, and that is courtesy cars. Now next week. It Hilton head. There are no courtesy cars but this week. Air By getting Alexis right, so it's like maybe I'm eating a box lunch, but at least I'm meeting the box in my lexus courtesy car, which makes me feel a little bit better, the other thing that's wild that. I I really I didn't put too much into it until I spoke to someone I'm close with. On the phone last night. WHO had gotten there? And, that is if you remember that returned to golf packet that they sent out. Yes there were only two. Everything in there was just a strong suggestion except for two things. Two things where you are not permitted to do this. And that was, you're not permitted to go out either a sit down restaurant. And you're not permitted to go out and sit at a bar. So you have to get your food to go. And my friend told me like he didn't really think about that until he got to the hotel. Yeah, and one of his favorite steak places is within walking distance. and where last year eat that person went there. Four Times friscos. The caddy didn't the caddy didn't remember the name of the the place itself, but said like that He went there four times and you know it was like over a hundred bucks a night. It was like his his treat for the year and now he doesn't know if he's going to go there at all this week. Because of it, so, what do you think is the? Biggest Challenge. that. These guys are going have to deal with and I want to do a prediction..

"World of leading fans and leading media coverage like what's your biggest concern, so I have two concerns with with fans. Really wanted to get to go get to the goal absolutely. My two biggest fears are one with fans and that is. How do you police social distancing? Even if you let eight thousand people in a thousand of them? At least they're gonNA Follow Tiger Woods. And I don't know that there's a way to social distance. It's it. It's a thousand people. How do you? When people want to get up against the ropes to watch tiger PUTT or a tee shot like. The Domes completes can't do it. That's what I mean you can't do. Because you, you let them know we're going to end the lottery. You win that there's a risk inherent risk Here's my thing. Yeah, and then my my other. My other big fear is media access. Media access the players and being able to do like the one thing about doing a zoom call in a scrum, and not having one on one access, and that kind of privacy with the player is. Then it is much easier to make sure that players. CADDIES. Can't. Be As. Forthcoming with information as they normally be, and that is the relationship of trust that you build up. And I agree with you there, but I just think this is just it's a it's a unique. I understand very, Tampa. AIDS temporary. It's easy to say it's temporary, but you know let's just let's just say our society, not the tour. I'm not putting this just on the tour. Yeah, but let's just say that our society doesn't have a great track record of giving those things back I. Agree, but as we look at it now is somehow were in June already. we have three hundred, thirty, three hundred forty million people in the United States. We have just over two million cases of. covid nineteen. Yes, and so it's getting to the point now. where the numbers in the population or Look, it's. I'm not saying it's not a thing. The would tell you that there's two million cases and three hundred fifty million people, three hundred forty million people all even granting that there's probably another eight hundred thousand people out there walking around the DUnno, they have it. I think well of those three hundred and forty million people. How many have been tested like? That's what you have to put the number I get it. The number isn't the total population it's. It's tested has to relative deposit cases. Not, total, not total. That's like hey, man. You may twelve million dollars last year year, but would I take home after I get paid like after I paid all the people that I gotta pay like Andy. Yes I. had a million dollars. They didn't let's talk. Golf I. Trump is happening I. think you know all this other stuff is is a little bit much, but whatever? The Golf, would you integrate field oh? Strongest field discourse has ever seen ever yes. Oh I just I am. I think you're going to see a little bit A. Little bit of rust. Gives a lot of these guys still been able to play down in Florida mcelroy's a Florida guy. He plays down there in Jupiter Justin Thomas kept goes in deejays both KEPCO DJ but planet Floridian. These guys have been able to play golf bought it. It's amazing how good this field is young and I can't wait to see some of these guys back in competitive action, so the one thing everybody better remember. Jon Rahm one after taking six and a half weeks off. Just showed up in one. So. Rust is definitely. Now the beauty of Where they are. Is this is not a hit. Go get it course. No, this a shot makers course. Yeah, man, this is colonial is a it is a monster of a golf. Course would end. It's not long now, not long. It is just Hogan's alley is right out in front of you. That's why guys like Zach. Johnson, and some of these guys who? Knows Kevin, ause. The defending champion you WanNa talk about a guy who's not long at all, but who is deadly accurate with his irons. And then once his putter got hot. It was like this. This is a this is a second shot golf course. Similar to SAWGRASS. Correct similar to Sawgrass, but the rough at this place can be. It can be absolutely brutal brutal, and.

"Having people be able to look at what's going on, and even if it raises red flags, yeah, isn't that for the better? I. Yes I mean it's it's. A yeah, that's. Let me. Give you a yeah, but okay I. Just don't Okay so here. Here's where we are right now in the in the world of sports and I know because I've been hosting sports centers were nothing's been going on for fifty weeks right that we've had little return to sports. INDYCAR came back this time of the first time. NASCAR's been back. UFC's been back for a while. there. There are so many a Bundesliga as of the international soccer league. There's so many different leagues that are out there. That have done the protocol with it. I just don't believe with the sensitivity surrounding this issue that anybody including the PGA would open themselves up to get it wrong, because there's so much emphasis right now. Yes, I, getting it right. Yes, I I totally agree I completely agree, but we saw with the U. of C. one of our former colleagues arosh Markazi was in Las Vegas for that. You have seen fight and was at the fight and covered the fight. That'll it. Again. It is slowly, but surely starting to open to the media so I guess what I'm pushing for is, and this is. This goes kind of mirroring. What Pat Perez was saying? If if we're going to do it, let's do it. If. You know if we're going to I know and this is where it's. That's even hard for me, 'cause I know you know this is where I gotta go I'm I'm with you when it comes to this? Even though I hate having to say that I'm with you when it goes, it is is look if we're GONNA do it. Let's do it the fact that memorial I think it's. It's wild fans right from royal. I Love Ed. What's that well? What's weird though is now. So we're going to be at memorial for two weeks in a row in the first week is going to be no fans because that's GonNa be sponsored by workday right, but they does. The tournament doesn't have an official name, but because John. Deere got cancelled. WORKDAY now is is coming in as the big sponsor of. A tournament, that's going to play at memorial the week before the memorial with no fans, so it actually going to be kind of wild to see. What is the tournament? Look like now at the same exact spot. Here's what it looks like without people and then the next week all right eight thousand people are in. One hundred percent. Sure on how they're doing now. The lottery system right? Were you know the eight thousand people that are in on again? I hate the Johnny Conspiracy Guy you are. You've got a survival kit when it all goes down at your house, but go ahead. Yeah, I do whatever so what I learned a I ain't got no squirrels anymore, so that part words of just saying. Here's the thing let's let's be honest. How many people for how long bought the notion when the PGA Tour said? No, no, the the pairings are computer. It's random a random computer process that we don't have anything to do with and you'd be like. So for ten years randomly tiger and Phil never got paired together like and everyone was like well, yeah. Like come on man. That's yeah so like. I think we have to be very. Cautious, not careful but cautious in the fact that we don't accept that look man sports back shut up. We'll just take whatever you give us like. Let's let's not do that. Okay, 'cause I don't I don't know that that's. For the long term I don't think that's the best plan because. Once you open the box of. Here's your thing. You get to control everything in your box. And they go well. We just WanNa do it for now. Giving up that kind of power and control normally is not done willingly. After the fact so I just I I'm just. Saying let's be cautious. That's. Just cautious of. Cautious of the the denial of access that we give up as members of the media. So that, we can at least have live golf. Okay, so that's that's my. Little bit of fear hesitant like here's a great example this week. This week they're hard members. There are members of the media that are allowed at the tournament this week. Right, but those members of the media will have no access to ask players. So if a guy walks off the eighteenth hole. And I have a mask on, and I'm in. The players are not allowed inside the Rose I have a mask on. I am not allowed to start. Asking that is not allowed inside the ropes right. Media's not allowed inside the ropes, but if I'm outside the ropes. I still am not. There's nowhere on site that I'm allowed to stand six feet away from a player with both of us wearing masks, those of following all the guidelines of social distancing. There's still no place where I can have a one on one conversation with that player. It has to either be done over the phone or through zoom meeting, and there's not gonna be a scrummage. There's going to be one person they're. Like inside inside the bubble. Holding the camera doing zoom and all media has to stay inside the media center tent to do these interviews, which I understand it at first because you don't want to push of media. They're like I. said I just want to exercise caution on. A few weeks from now when it's time kind of let those things start loosening those restrictions. Yeah, do they happen or is it like you know? We found that? This actually works a lot better for WHO. Would it but what is your biggest? What is your biggest worry? My biggest, my biggest.

The cat of the podcast blitz up those who media at marrying catty. Word and see a I eat that it's not instagram and twitter. I have never been more excited to hear. Hello Friends, then I am. Daddy teebox is yours. Get started today. This'll be to one week. Where even though it's not the masters you start that way. Ahead and start with hello friends while or just played a welcome back Carter theme song. Welcome back! You know it's it. Is it feels? Good, but at the same time I think part of the reason. It feels so good is because there's that there is an element of dangerous well so already in talking to one of my caddie. Government informant yeah. What my one of my sources! That's how that's. The media says it has sources unless it's evil than it's an informant One of my sources told me that. On Tuesday. They there was one person that they saw wearing a mask and that the whole social distancing thing. has kind of been thrown out the window as Absolutely predicted by Pat Perez that. If, if one, if you if caddy player if you test negative, I test negative. Why in the world am I gonNA stand six feet away from you. If we're supposed to be getting work done or the flip side of that is from another caddy who said all that social distancing, and like being real careful yet? That's going to be great until Guy Goes bogey-bogey and then has the punch out of the trees and then. Do you really believe a player is going to? To after punching out, and having a big chunk of mud stuck on a front of their club face. Be like all right. Hold on, let me clean this club off and disinfected before I. Give it back to the catty and we listened to now that dude is going to drop a f-bomb. Throw a club and then can't. He's gotta go. He Ain't gonNA leave it there, but I gave him. We need to six well. You better go back and get it because. Remember. I'm not allowed to touch it until you disaffected, so it's still back there on number six. What, are you? What do you think like here's? You know I've said this I've been on champing this the whole time that. If Player and Cattier or both negative. They don't have the virus than fire way. Let's go and honestly will let's let's let's. Let's break this down to its simplest form if Said caddy or player? We're pause. They wouldn't be there anyway. So? Early what's not like? This early because the initial tests that they took. Though saliva test, yeah, is eighty percent accurate. So that means twenty percent of the time. You Get A. You can get a false negative if even if you do now. What this? What? What? Both of the people that I've spoken to that are are now on site has said is the nasal swab tests that they get one? They arrived. That test is administered and the results are given anywhere between four twenty four hours right. The caveat is what as soon as you get that test done at. It's a site that is not at the golf course, but when you get that test done, you're given a pink slip meaning that you have taken the test, and that gives you access to everything at the golf course. Accept any activities indoors. So you literally! In theory in. I'm trying to be sunshine and rainbows but I also. It's my duty to give everyone the truth in theory they. You're just kicking people off by lightly I know, but you gotTA. have at least you gotTa. Know what the truth is, and let's hear the truth is you could get that swab test of your nasal cavity, or as they like to say. Get your brain touched. You could go to the course practice. Be around other people. You're not going inside, but. Then you could. Potentially have a positive test, and then you have to leave, but you've already exposed other people to see I disagree. Slightly, okay, I the premise I agree with. Yes, but I think there's going to be so many social distancing measures. Put in place that let's just say on the off chance. Someone got the test. They don't know their positive yet. They are around other people I think the social distancing measures will be that to avoid a potential pitfall like that in theory, you are absolutely correct, but as I said my sources and informant. Hey, had informants have? You're saying that that's already been thrown out the window. When out the window nobody down here is wear masks. Social distancing is not happening is, do you? Do you not find it odd that we as we record this on Tuesday. Have, you seen any social media post I've seen one from Damon Green caddy for. Used to caddy for Zach Johnson I. Forget off the top of my head. At the moment I'm sorry I forget it Damon my bed, but. The only social posts that I've seen so far is Damon Green took a picture of the testing area, not the golf course. So I have not seen any pictures or any video like I'm watching the golf channel right now. There's no they're doing morning drive and it's four people in four boxes at their houses. You would think the tournament starts this week. There would be a normal tournament. After ninety one days of no golf. There would be cameras everywhere like we need to show. Let's show people what is going on. Would, who's not allowed? John ABC got the right. No Man when they sheet is out of the rights, CBS has the rights. Yes, put Golf Channel Gulp channels, also a rights holder, and they have pre-tournament coverage, so they do live that all the time now. Yeah all the time in a normal world. There are so many different areas of how media is covering this thing, which is segue to this when CBS announced yesterday. That Jim Nance will be by himself in his own tower the production truck from what I read is GonNa be cut down. Forgive me if I'm wrong on this number, but I think it's eight people in a production truck. Typically twenty two that I know so. My point being is that yes, on a normal tournament week there'd be cameras and Gary. Williams would be out there whether this little fabric director folding chairs driving range, and they'd be all doing all of this coverage, but. That here, not now so every bit of how this tournaments cupboard from Monday until Sunday is different prime example here. The SPN were sending Todd Archer. To do coverage of colonial because your lives now cal your home, yes, yes, W so writer! Yeah, I don't I. Don't buy for a second The notion that there's I don't I'm not going to put words in your mouth, but not a cover up, but there's no I. Don't I, don't I don't want to be Johnny. Conspiracy Theory I don't Wanna I don't WanNa come across as that way, but also as a member of the media understand how. It is to be in a situation like this and say sunshine and rainbows. That's we are now also in a time where. Trans Transparency. Is Much better than non transparency..

"The floor. That would be a target like a quarter right. The smaller the target the smaller right the so cut to a quarter doing that. Maybe what you do is even if you have tile floors linoleum Noli enforce get a ruler hot on the ruler. So now what you're doing is working on. Start Line and remember these drills. They're not they're not going to be where you're sitting there working three hours a day on your game because putting on a rule is gonNA GET ABOARD REAL FAST. It suffer you doing things five minutes day five minutes on this five minutes on net ten minutes on this three minutes on that every day. Your game's be like firing also knew when we finally get back to the course absolutely so putting Matt what else ruler. Putty Matt Quarter. That's a twenty five cent driller. What else they need you. Yeah exactly you don't need to go out and buy like massive targets or something you know what you can use his use paper plates right so paper plates and if you're outside and your backyard waits upside down or if you want but the paper plates right side up couple stones or some dirt in there. Now you've got yourself your target. So the Balkan land in their life with one of my groups is cleaning out the garage and I found old. Partisan hands took them right out in the backyard so that all lands on it extra. That's pretty cool. Don't eat anything more if you're talking about full swings if you can get if you have net. That's very good. Another thing you can do and I think you know credit. A lot of people have seen these videos on instagram where people are hanging towels or blankets carpets from laundry. Lot a fly that hanging over like maybe the yard fence or something hitting into it anything like that I mean that's that's that's a really good. I'm not talking about like you know people at that are hurting for money. I've seen tore players doing this. Where they're putting carpets over nets in hidden. I'm like hey that guy's doing why can't why can't we use our good friend? Combi cows. He was doing it in his backyard. Post baby delivery so the I think I mean that's I mean that's a great starting point for a lot of players. I think I think with what has really impressed me. Washing you. Online is the amount of creativity that one the situation has forced your hand to produce but to that you have been able to produce for your clients. Are you said just pulling out pots and pans in shipping in pots and pans? And you know just having that ability to be abstract in the thought of like I'm not GonNa let us put me down. I'm on find a way to still improve my kids better. I think that's basically lots of mentality that kids need to have anyways. When they're playing as at the cars can be dealt against you. You know I. It's Hi. How are we going to be able to get back to a good situation? So you'll outside of not being able to see and get in front of a player. What has been like one of the bigger challenges that you've that you've had to deal with. I guess it'd be as far as learning this teaching. How has it differed? I think how you communicate is is really important One of the things that this was something that a lot of instructors experienced instructors had been telling some of the younger teachers about four hand is that don't overflow with verbal diarrhea. Don't don't overload the lesson with with verbiage and everything like that. Don't how much smart you are. I don't know how that works in this format because one of the things I noticed this. If you just stand there and you're watching your student on the IPAD and you're not saying they turn around. They think there's some wrong with the connection. They think there is some wrong with wildfire. Whatever so what starts to happen is is. You have to be a little bit more verbal with what you're telling them to do but at the same time what you're doing is you're learning how to really streamline your deliver so so what happens is that you you gotta be really direct in and. I know like one of the first few lessons the first couple of lessons that I was getting. I was getting very aggravated myself because I try to communicate what I wanted even clearly. It wasn't working and what would happen is I was showing it on the video feed. I'd be like I caught myself doing that in what I told the student was. It's not union because they were thinking that I'm getting mad at right and I was saying that it's not you on mad at myself because I should be better at this than I am. It's kind of telling me that I was taking it for granted hours to indicate things and so I took that as a big lesson for myself is really delivering much cleaner thing much cleaner verbiage. In terms of what I want students do yeah. I think that's you know that's probably the hardest. Part is like since we can't you know grabbed the golf club or move a body part in the expressing it and showing. It almost isn't always enough for this doesn't how you learn some people just the feel it you know they have that that's more. They're learning processes. I feel not by being shown taught you know. I mean in so the the the demonstration gave. I think that was interesting that you carry yourself making faces on the camera. You know that. That's that's kind of overlooked. You Know How. Many Times you've been on the phone versus a facetime make all those silly faces on the phone and you're kind of having to watch that 'cause it's different is this is new. It's interesting in that what I do also is is some of the faces that I'm making are some of the places that I would make. If we were standing there face to face and.

"Well you know if they had a charitable component where everybody agreed to give ten percent of their earnings to charity and all the tournament proceeds went to it. You know I think people could get behind that and the side though is a lot of these. Local communities have charities that count on the on this This money every year. You know they've gotten used to it they they. They're the beneficiary the tournaments a big part of their budget. What about them? So there are so many things for them to work through. And we're looking. We're just talking about one little piece of our world. The golf world It's a it's a monumental thing that that they all face right now. Why did everyone really believed that? That Tiger Phil thing was going to happen. Well here's the thing I think fill it Grew legs because Phil responded to distant. Innocuous twitter user about having a match with tiger with one camera and everybody would watch and you know. Wouldn't that be great and still just responded with two words working on? Excuse me three. Words are looking on. And he was spotted. Somebody said you're not kidding. Me Beza wouldn't kit and so phil but Phil I don't think was talking about the same thing because there had been rumblings before the world was shut down about another Tiger Phil thing like in Vegas in two thousand eighteen and this one would have partners and what had been in. The discussion stages was brady manning being part of it. Well as soon as this whole thing came up those discussions got put on hold. You know they. They weren't going to go through. They weren't going to go forward with that because first of all it's a bad luck etc what were you gonNA play. It's and the original concept was to not be a big charitable saying it was you know fill entire. We'RE GONNA make out this deal like that's how these things work and the PGA tour was gonNA make out in. That was gonna be a great major. Tv thing will then when this all came up. The you know the the goalposts shift shifted. Now you're talking about doing it for charity. We'll still for that to happen. You've gotTa have the the Clearance Phil. Listen Californian tireless in Florida. People have to travel there has to be people put it on TV. And you're not GonNa do it with one camera door. Has the sign off on it right? They and people are making the tour to be the bad guys. They're not they they will sign off. If it's if it's doable right you don't WanNA stand in the way of it but Scott to work. It's got to work for them. It's gotTa work. It's gotta obviously work in the medical sense of it and it's got to work for the players and and we just don't know when that could happen to have it like like right now or next week or two weeks or the end April when the whole world is shutdown. I just don't think that works now. You know oh well. It's just them and they could each beyond their own car. You can have a couple of camera guys. I think it's way more complicated than that. Well it is. It's very complicated and to put it on TV. Yeah you'RE GONNA want it to look good. You'RE NOT GONNA want to have one camera. Golf is covered with one camera to think of all the people out there to make that work just for two guys you know and so then what you know. They're going to try to enter. You know you'd have to interview. Mike Them I mean there's people human beings involved with that That I don't think we're at that point yet or something like that could happen. I completely agree. And if it's going to be partners after the way that the last one went down the two partners that I don't need with Tiger Phil would be Peyton and Tom Brady although Payton yes because pain will talk smack. I I don't I know Payton's not afraid to talk a little smack but Tom Brady. I think is preparing to come down to your neck of the woods so you have kind of kid. He's not GonNa be in all right so as we wrap this up. Then let's just let's just say. Do you believe that we will be playing golf? The week of June fifteenth to the twenty first when the US Open was supposed to take place in all honesty. Mike no me neither man. I'm glad you said that. I just think it's too soon and I mean listen. I would love to be wrong about that. I'm hoping you know most of most of the states have this stayed home order through April right so on April Thirtieth. If we all wake up in the numbers have decreased greatly in the experts. Say that it's safe on June fifteenth. We're going to need another month. June fifteenth will be good great. But I mean it just seems like we're a little ways away from that I mean. I think the middle of July is probably more realistic and and frankly look with the schedule that they've put together. You know the amount of events the majors in every saying if they could even get back on August I I think doing cartwheels. And we'd be ecstatic because there'd be a lot of big events in August September October the masters in November know and then boom right back into it again in January can have another masters in April You know it would be A. I think it's worth being patient for that and As opposed to rushing it running into issues and look if they have a master's in November. Imagine how cool it will be just the scenery and just how the golf course to play. And we're going to be talking about all the differences and and all the you know the intricacies of Augusta national a different time year. It'll be fascinating saying what the US Open and close. There's a winner course. That's the thing a IT'S A. It's a golf club. That is winter only anyway so it might look more lush than we've ever seen it before. I love the way that she said how. Cool 'cause middle November is not probably going to be in the seventies or eighties but maybe it will be and it's a gust the national so it might be the only place in the world that can get live azaleas in November. They'll find a way. I don't know if they can do that. But you're gonNA have the you know the the leaves turning colors and you're gonNa have the you know as you said they're a winner. They're a winner club. They overseas with Ryan September of the time to members. Come back in October. That places green not might not be as green as this week but it's green so you give it another month into November and with the ability. They have to water. They've got those sub air systems. They can heat and cool under the Greens. Not worrying about a hard freeze like the. There's no winner hasn't happened right. Worry about it's only through the summer like it's the naked. Take care of then. It's quite possible to look the the actual course itself a look exactly like doesn't April maybe it's a tad thinner is the Ri- Hasn't come in fully in the Bermuda is still prevalent. But so what would that be cool? They have to adapt to it. It's just like from year to year anytime. A course might change due to weather and you know wing foot in September is going to be a lot different than wings June drill you know so it and I think that these are the things that you need to sort of embrace like okay. It's not gonNA be normally is. This'll be Kinda cool so be fun and frankly good problems to have. Yeah that's exactly. That's the whole point man. The point is our. We're playing golf and if that is happening when all of this is going on we can figure it out but the fact that would be playing golf will be fantastic so man. Thanks for jumping on with emergency podcast. I'm super surprised at how this all of this news came out at one time and it was just a great text message from you going. Hey man you want to chat about this hell. Yeah want to chat about this. We get this out there and let people know so. Hopefully this helps educate people just a little bit on everything that's going on and while the decisions were made the way that they were made this has been a special edition Mattie and the caddy featuring Bob Newhart Bob.

"But they said that everybody who qualified so this year's tournament will be allowed to play next year as long as they remain in Amazon. Okay so what is it. Seventy two players in the seal. What sixty five of them say. They're coming back to now. There's only seven spots for new players but I mean that's almost the way you have to look at it you have to. You have to sort of let the ones who were already in back in again and then you have to figure out some other way to accommodate the new qualifiers in in terms of the tour you know for for next year. They might have to try to increase fields. I think they deserve well suited to have more opposite events. Which I think we're GONNA see this fall but you know we don't have an opposite event against the players we don't have an opposite event against the US Open in the master's there used to be. We'll have you know. There's there's one against the open and there's one against a couple of the WGC's but surely they can find some people. Hopefully that would be willing to to put those events on for far less sponsorship fee and give guys an opportunity and if they were saying eight of those next season with a shortened schedule. Isn't that better than than than not? Yeah I just think you know obviously smarter. People are sitting there putting their heads together. Thinking of all these things and it might be one of the reasons why we don't know at this point and why some of those events weren't Hashed out like the majors were today. And that's what yeah and it's the whole it there. There is a feeling a little bit behind this. That feels like let's just get this out there and we'll figure everything else out just a little bit but I gotTa say you know the thing that surprised me. The most when everything came out was that not only did the master say. It's it's happening in November but they also said patrons come on if you gotta take it bring it which. I never thought that they would make an announcement like that. Even this early you know. I think I think they're doing that. Basically to say if we can't have spectators at that point we're not gonNA play you know and that you think that that's what that's would you think if it comes down to it and the decision is to play without patrons or not play at all you think that they would rather not play at all. It's just a guess but I do. I think that's I think. And and frankly it's it's because if it's determined that it's not safe with spectators. How is it still safe? You can social distance inside the ropes. Yes you can but much more difficult to practice social distancing when everyone wants to be around the ninth in the Eighteenth Green. I get that but by the same token if you if it's deemed not safe to travel yet if it's deemed not safe to have big cluster. The people you still have to have a lot of TV production people. They're not doing it without TV. Yeah I'm still going to have to have some volunteers you know. You've gotTa have you know you've probably got to have some place for them to eat so. I mean so I guess what I'm trying to say is. They need to be clear for everyone. I think for these things to happen. Now here's the other side where I could see no spectators if they can get to the point where you are testing everyone and all the players academies and officials and scores and rules officials media and you know Augusta national members can be tested or for the US Open as well as the PGA then. Obviously that's a much smaller group to test than than twenty thousand people a day. Then maybe that makes sense to have no chance you know. I'm also wondering. Is there a point? We get to where you could test all the spectators. I know that sounds ridiculous Ryan but if there is a test that takes two minutes or five minutes and you go through the turnstiles and you get tested and they say. Yay or Nay. Obviously that's GonNa be monumental Deal to pull off but if that is what it takes to restore confidence for these things. Great I don't know if we're going to be able to get to that point you hear these stories about you know these quick tests you know. Maybe in a couple of months time we'll have thousands upon thousands of those and a place could could find a way to do it. You'd have to do it out in the parking lot or something And and you turn away. People who test positive surprised they were doing this with two. I mean with the masters the Masters I can understand but it is very surreal. I guess is the best word that I can use in that. Two of these major championships are going to be played at what would be considered Epicenters of where the virus was starting. You know or where big numbers started breaking out so clearly jampy ship in harding park and then especially the US Open now at wing foot in in New York. The only thing I can say there is. They've just got their fingers crossed and are hoping for a miracle you know. That's what it is that in New York. They're hoping that Three months extra. Time is the trick for that and for an San Francisco It's only really what Two and a HALF MONTHS. I guess I am and I think we're GONNA know you know at a certain point if it's realistic even But as I've been saying like there was some pushback on announcing this today. You know this a tough spot right now with this. You know we're at a very were still at a very very dangerous position. And there's a lot of a lot of doom and gloom at this moment. Maybe they could awaited a week or two to announce this but I understand why they wanted to get this done whether they announce it or not. And that is if you're going to do it. You have to be able to plan for right hand and so you gotta get the event out there in situated because there's so many things that have to go into this that that you can't do otherwise because you know you gotTa have hotel rooms. You GotTa get volunteers line dog. If you've got to have you know you you've got you've got to be able to plan for this. And and if if they're not able to to know a date out in the future are you. GonNa do that. You can't sit there and go. Let's wait two months and see if it see if it's ready to go and then okay. We got the all clear. Now we're now we're gonNA plan the masters you know. I mean if you live not far from it went out and saw what innisbrook what where they play in Tampa where where they play. Davao spar you went out and saw the stand up. Everything was ready to go and then they had to tear everything down so that doesn't happen over a week or no. It's laments of work. Yeah the tournament together like that. And on the flip. Side of that though is if we're playing without spectators you don't need any of that that's a good point in or or if you are you if again. I just not sure like where we're GONNA be with this. 'cause I'm sort of like if you if it's not safe enough to have spectators house it's safe enough to have antibody okay but but if you go with the theory that like as you said Hey. They can socially distance inside the ropes. Although I'm still wondering how does player hand his golf club back to the CADDY caddy's doesn't touch the club. So here's how you do it and as this is an your academy too so when I tell you this you'll be like okay. The only thing that he does carry the bag. The player has to clean the clubs. The player has to clean the golf ball. The only this is the one time where the the caddy sole job is to carry the bag and put the set the bag down and then the caddy can walk his own yardage the catechin still read the Greens. All of that stuff can still be there and the cat. He's standing on one side of the bag. You know in distancing can still talk to the player about the shot and give advice but the caddy won't be able to handle the clubs that could save. That's a good point fair point. I would say though if you tested everybody before the all the players and caddies and officials then that doesn't become an issue if they're clear right or you would also but but you know that is. These are the things that you have to you. Did they have to sort through? To the point about no no spectators or no stands. Well what if you allowed spectators in but you had no luxury suites in no grandstand? So they're not crowded next to each other now. You're still going to have social distancing issues at restrooms around the eighteenth green that kind of stuff ingredients. It'd be a pride. Would it be dissipated enough to where it's safer in other words if we got back to thing we're groups of thirty or forty or fifty a you know which is remember one that long ago? That was the recommendation right group. You're less Groups more than fifty. You know so again. I don't know but I just think that's one of the reasons that they've they've put the schedule out. Now they're like okay now. We know how we're going to do it if we do it. Let's work towards trying to do it if we're able to he the only other thing about not having corporate boxes is as you said that is also a way that tournament's generate money for charities and it's not of course that's their bottom line all these tournaments. Their bottom line is basically You know they`re. They're not getting the purse money. They're not getting the TV money. They raised through sponsorships ticket sales You know refresh concessions merchandise that stuff. That's how they make their money. They pay their bills. They give the rest of charity. You know that leads me to another point you know should golf try to do some sort of big charity event? That is is earmarked for Corona virus relief. You know and I. I think this this notion of the Tiger Phil stuff. That's been circulating. There's been some thought about that. Maybe filling that void but could there be an event one of these events or more than one that you know that You know that sort of earmarks. It's it's charitable efforts towards that you know you to your point about you know. Is it a bad? Look for these guys that he planned for eight million dollar.

"Is Patrick read kind of as villain? Arroyo he doesn't necessarily want but will he'll take it. If if that's where it's gotta be and Brooks kept go who is going in that direction. Going in the guy like don't embrace me. I'm not your friend. I'm here. You know he reminds me a lot of my and I wasn't around for this but it it. It reminds me of the way people talk about this person. The way that people talk about Brooks Kepco remind me of how people talked about Bob Gibson and you know who we were around Reggie Jackson yet. Yes yes at least one. Reggie one reggie was with on the podcast. He opened up about why he felt the need to be the way that he was. Yup which was completely different from. Why Brooks would be this way and Brooks talks about why he is the way he is and it that way. It's more Gibson esque in that. He I don't want to be friends with the guys. I'm trying to beat. Which is what tiger used to be but now has flip the script and shown I can beat these guys friends and beat him and it feels even better coming off a green when they're all standing there wanting to hug me so let let me run this out at you. Because you're making good points is as we kind of look at where golf is in trying to get some of the attention whether you're talking about the condense schedule and players missing out yesterday on. Espn we didn't all access during an exhibition game with the Chicago cubs and we had players miked up during the game with IFP etc in. It is the most fascinating thing that I've seen on television in quite some time because the players were talking to their at bat result was. I haven't seen a fast fast balls coming right. And then he hid it and then he's round the basic going for two. No I'm not I'm not. It was so fascinating and what I'm getting at. Is I think golf because what are we both agree on golf and baseball? Are the two old white guys sports if golf would embrace something like that? Biking up seven player caddies throughout around. Not See that's exactly my problem. Why why is your default can't do it? Why can't do it because number one? You would have to have a a much longer delay because of the language you only need a couple of second. Yeah so why? Why can't you do it? Why are you going to be because the old white guy? I'm not being the old white guy at look. Dude you're purchasing choir. I am one hundred and fifty percent for it. I think it's exactly what golf needs. I think it would be fantastic. Do I think the problem with doing that is yes there are? It's time if a golf round takes five and a half hours. Some of the things that talked about between players and caddies can't and shouldn't be made public. There's a producer in the truck. I understand that but the problem is catching nets stuff. What happens what happens when something like that goes out on now. It looked where in baseball you can sit there and talk to baseball players during the game about the game and about. Oh this guy has these tendencies and did you see what this Guy Dave of this net golf is not like that golf is there are. We'll ask this question for Horsham. Yeah Yeah because it would be interesting. I would be interested to know what I think would be. What what would be fascinating would be some of the conversations between players walking off tea boxes or walking. Yeah walking off tea. Boxes IS THE BEST ONE. Because that's when all three players are normally together or players and caddies. That's when you have some of the best. Conversations is walking off tea boxes on par fours and fives. Because you know you're going to probably be waiting on the group that's on the green when you get to your golf ball you know when you get there you'll get your number and go through your process so this time we're guys talked to one another. I don't know how comfortable golfers would be. I can tell you right now. I don't even have to say I don't know I can tell you for sure. Golfers would not be comfortable with some of the conversations that happen even and I'm not talking about talking about you know the other sex. I'm not talking about any of that. I'm just talking about Phil would not be comfortable if his conversation with Jordan. Speak about the tax stuff that he's going through moving from. California to Florida and I don't know that guys would be comfortable allowing people that kind of access and I don't know in those conversations happen in tournament. Oh a live. That's what you're telling me is. He'll tell them. Phil speed tied for the lead the tournament. They're talking about tax problems if they're tied for the lead at tournament. They're probably not talking a whole lot on a Sunday when they're talking to their catty and that I think that'd be interesting for your point being is this. You and I love the Sport Golf Nerd so I will sit and watch three rounds of the Honda Classic Me To Jeff and Jim in Nebraska may not. But what's going to get Jeff Jim to watch if they hear about this? I'm telling you have baseball. Did this in the regular season. I believe the ratings would skyrocket and they would do well for the sport. There just needs to be away in this era of. We're getting close to post tiger again. Where Golf needs to find a way to bring the sport and make it more engaging for everyone because I believe it's a good enough game that can appeal to a larger mass than it already is. Two things one. I don't know that baseball would do it. In the regular season two because they play one hundred sixty two games and the biggest cheating scandal in the history of the sport. I would come up with something quick. I would come up with something to but that ain't it and even though I think that I I agree with you. I agree with you that that would be awesome and number two when it comes to golf. Set this up for a practice round. And let's Mike Up Players and caddies for a practice round when they are gambling. And see the real talking that goes on in folsom one of the one of the greatest rounds that I have ever seen or actually been a part of just been out there. Walking around was when the course was closed at liberty national last year and it was brooks kept Dustin Johnson Tiger Woods and Harrow Varner the third and they had a game and the talk between the four them was an absolute screen. It was an absolute screen. The unfortunate thing is if you put microphones on all of them and send them out to play that match again. None of those conversations happen and that's partly the golfers fault because they are way too protective of their quote unquote brand and they don't want to say or do anything especially in today's Society because we also know how this works in today's society how easy it is to take something that someone says and make it offensive and then here comes the mob but see. Here's what I'm with you but I don't even think that we need that type of conversation for it to be compelling television. I think did he just Mike Up Player in caddy during a practice round. When they're getting yardage is a walk in the course. What's my shot here? Where do you WanNa hit it here? Why is this the ideal situation? I think that in and of itself. I don't need to hear about when they were juniors and colleges and what he thought and how he met his wife. I don't need any of that while it'd be fun to listen to. Oh I think that's really getting to know the players but I think I think just a golf talk like just hearing some guy maybe talking about man. This hill sucks. I don't like this whole I don't like I mean just stuff like that. I think would be say that. But what's the biggest complaint people have about golf? When it's out there microphones around like people get mad at Jordan speeds and Michael Gretler when they are going back and forth talking about what they're gonNa do and that's at the shot like I'd love it. Listen I am one hundred percent behind it too but we also have seen the repercussions of when that happens and how people make it out to be something. It's not looking what happened. Look it Bubba Watson and Ted Scott. You see the go-between from them and then you see kind of the reaction stuff from them and then it's like we Gotta. Save Ted Scott Right that just cracked me up or can you believe how Jordan speaks to Michael. Why would he put up with something like that? And how they're Jordan blame Michael Weller. And that's the dynamic that I think people ins- you and I who are around the game enough at this level understand what that talk truly is but people on the outside looking in initially and always get it wrong and there's no way to get it right. Did you see speaking of getting it right here? We'll who Paul easier. What happened what he said about. Tommy fleetwood about the European tour so that this was during the Honda on the final day. Tommy Fleetwood try to win and Paul is talking about him and and basically said about Lee Westwood to in twitter lit up and lit up on him. Really you're talking to. He talked about how you know. It's okay to be right but there's a right way to be right thick and he basically said that Tommy fleetwood in is wins on the European tour and Lee Westwood and his wins on the European tour are nice almost like they're cute but they don't stack up to win it onto Peter. I had quote. He says these guys. Now you all you want the European tour the international game and all that you have to one of the PGA tour. They all know that. And I think Tommy knows that and has put a little pressure on Tommy but this is why they wanna be. They want to come here and prove they can make it at this level. What's wrong with that? Let it it all and then Lee. Westwood responded Paul Walks down the range wishing you good luck before you play the next east condescending. The tour you play on and disrespects the tournament you've won tournament you've went around the world. I've won in nineteen different countries over four decades disrespect in a lot of people not saying just saying now. It's easy for Paul to do. Because he's a winning Ryder Cup captain. But but you you Kinda know bit me to do. Let me do my. Let me do my analyze that low. Bit Low bit disrespectful. Low Bit you don't you don't have to come across as belittling the European tour that quote was belittling at all. I think it demeans. What winning on the European tour me these guys know you can all you want on the European tour the international game and all of that. But you have to win on the PGA tour the international game and all of that. You can win as much as you want on the European tour. Is He wrong? It don't matter on? Why do they all want to come over and plan the PGA tour because of the money but the competitions probably top to bottom better because of the money the just because of money? Yes.

"Week before the start to the masters so a couple of minutes are going to be moved around so once again. We're going to have a changing schedule and tournament schedule. It's it though I tell you the truth it would be the ideal situation would be when we finished in August. There was no more golf. Well so son said that. Which which half of this podcast caddies Eddie. All here we first of all here we go. He thinks the players hate the new schedule. He hates new schedule and he says that there should eat it. Yes you do you've bitched about it. The inception of the new schedule and he hates he hates. That is the goal. Should be done. The second football season starts. Yeah you know I agree and I think the majority of top players and I can't speak to all the players. I know all the players don't feel this way but if you said. Hey we're gonNA play from beginning January all the way through August and that's GonNa be maybe mid September and be done then that define the fall events are great events and I play in the fall and they're unbelievable events but I think for a top guys in the tour wants us to play as much as possible and support the PGA tour support these events. But it comes at a cost and we're very fortunate now that we make a lot of money. We are very fortunate that and so we don't need to play a ton and now that a lot of us are sort of getting that age and listen. I'm not putting myself in the top tier of guys. I'm probably the next tier of top players. But we're having families and we wanted to spend more time with our kids and and it just becoming tougher. We get to make that schedule and we can do that but the problem is is that a lot of what a lot of the other top players have said you know. I don't play much in the fall and I started in January and I'm so far behind him points that in it and if they play well they're going to be fine but it's just like man if. I have it a couple of weeks like here's a perfect example. Justin Rosenberg's Kepco. They haven't played a lot this year and they're both two hundred in the facts points now. What happens if if they don't play well that they've played get their game together which they will but what happened just played well but they don't have the years they've had in the past. They're not GonNa make that Tour Championship. Which is not how this will make the BMW because it cuts the seventy now. So there's a lot of different factors and that's not what the tour wants. They want to top players in there. Because that's what drives the money and I hope all my tour of players understand when I say this. We all help the tour in sponsors. We all are contribute to all this mind. That would be able to to play for the day when you got the. Let's be real. It's a top guys. There's about thirty. Maybe thirty or forty guys that really pushed a barometer of top guys. There's still some other guys. Bonus still push barometer of of the the pay help out with the numbers and TV ratings and everything and everyone else sort of. Is it really doing much? He's really great stories to have those players when they win and opportunities opportunities are great. I agree with you but if you want to you know that's why I think it's GonNa be interesting what happens going forward with how the PGA tour is going to change and evolve over the next couple of years because I think this this premier awfully PG L. is as an interesting thing but. I don't think it's viable thing in my opinion You know they're asking you to play eighteen guarantee eighteen events and then you add four majors in twenty two events. So you're GONNA play twenty two events a year and I think it's an sort of condense window of eight or nine months in all you're playing like eleven events lasts fifteen weeks they want you to play. And that's not gonNA happen very well so but I think the tour is gonNA evolve. There's GONNA be some changes. Do I know what those changes are? No have a habit. I have an idea of what I think the changes should be. But you know. I'm not the commissioner what was what was your body like when you play those nine out of ten weeks. What did you learn? My Body holds up pretty well. It's just a mental side it's a grind it becomes. It's easy if you're playing well because you can have your gains good shape than you can take some days off but if you're if you're struggling with your game you have to have the grind out you know. I have to go spend hours on the range work on you swing or hours on the putting green trying to figure out it's a grind and that's the that's the mental grind the physical grind. You can recover quickly take a day or two off here and there but I was. I've I've I've done some long runs but now that I'm I'm still fairly young but you know being thirty three last shows thirty two it does wear on your little bit and so I was pretty much shot at Zurich. Classic Lashio allergist exhausted just done and I was just mentally and I was happy to have two weeks off after. Where do you allow yourself more time to watch Netflix? Tv On the road. Or when you're back into Florida swain just Kinda hang out. I watched a ton of that anytime. Oh tell me a must see show. Oh man shoot. Well I mean I watch about ice crazy. I probably keep up. Close to thirty shows on your Netflix. My less licks Showtime all those narcos. I did I just finished. Second season. Narcos Mexico in Mexico. I go in Mexico so that was really good when I was over in an where was I did. I do in Asia.

"Don't worry about the ten year development model because if you don't get the if you don't get this piece right forget about ten years from now you might not get them tomorrow right and you might not get the next week. Keep them in the game you. You're an actor there right. Keep them in the game and so that you know that sorry. That's maybe more than two minutes. But that's discovered discovered off. No that's great. I mean I think Ma'am I. It's the story. Portion of it is where I think. It's the common theme that I see with a lot of these programs like yourself that I wish more coaches could see right because it goes to the point of getting away from Matt Linear Topography of how developed a player but that storyline keeps the kids engaged right and and it keeps them chasing down that rabbit hole of like Of engagement in the end go becomes more than just get the ball in the hole right in the end of the day for a kid putting a ball in a hole. That's let's you know two times. The size of the golf ball in can be entirely frustrating. But if you put it in a frame that allows them to have fun like you were saying with like fruit. Pursuit will then. Yeah that's awesome. That's what you need right. And so I think that's what's really really cool about the program. And I think the education stuff that you're providing the coaches this is your hitting the nail on the head like I know our personally went through the PJ program at Mississippi State and had an absolutely awesome education. But we never really talked about stuff like this like we didn't talk about The the minutia of how kids monitoring or how people learn how to to create a program Graham white this but again. This was over a decade ago when I was in these Classes so I don't know if that was really at the forefront of law people's minds right I mean I think there are still some Ancient history being taught like I actually had to answer some questions wrong in the teaching manual both to pass my teaching portion of the test. You know so but now the curriculums are a lot lot better. The coaches are going back like I just went back and talk to the program last month. The guys are going back and giving back through programs. Rams are taking like information you're giving and now spreading it to these. PJ schools so that future pros have this knowledge. Nothing that's what is going to help this game. Continue to grow because we're one of the few sports that is growing in the junior golf world and you are one hundred percent and I'll go ahead now. Most thirteen year olds is that as the window and kids are quitting other sports because they're realizing that good enough to play it or it's too serious or or they're not built the right way to play basketball or whatever And this is how golf can fill that void. I I fundamentally You know through through study quite frankly so I feel like I've sort of earned this perspective I do not. Ah Golf to me. And it's Conventions right I am not behold into those right I strip away. Hey all You know the etiquette and the norms Around golf in expose. I think its shortcomings because quite frankly if you're a twenty three year old who's coming up right now and you are and you keep yourself hold right to what gall is is supposed to be the guys on the road at top Golfer saying hey good luck with that fella because what they what they have realized and what's so many are realizing is that you have a human being right. WHO's outside outside in a bone rule position right? Who who needs to have this event socially relatable to others right talking about the backbone of why people are motivated to do things and so fundamentally how can can you create an experience with a curve? Stick in a ball right. That is not beholden to necessarily what golf is supposed to be because let's be honest. The design of golf is not good. And like I'm sorry to rattle you know ruffle feathers but that statement but but I think the smartest people in the industry and the people that are unapologetic about bringing droves of people to them again top golfers saying there was a sticking a ball. Paul and you're in a highly social environment right in the in the feedback is omnipresent. You're always you know you always know where you stand. Relative to goal or to others is lightweight as casual. There's not all these obstacles to entry right so this gets back to the success abilities point like we have five hundred kids in our program. Do you think like if I ask all five hundred if I said hey is golf by itself good enough and say what are you talking about like if they just showed up and it was a baron putting green and it was a barren driving range and it was was just golf. I'd have fifty kids right. So here's here's the big problem like all of these programs with like the checkpoints. That's great for the kids that just love this already. You know what I mean for me. You don't need you don't need somebody to tell tell you how to run those kids. Because they'll they'll just five footers until they're you know tiller hand bleed like I used to because for whatever reason they're obsessed with But they're one percent five percent most. What are you doing with the other ninety five percent right that that are playing xbox and that I think like are you kidding me man I gotta go outside? I gotTA swing monkey wrench around and I gotTa do what. Oh by the way. I'm going to be tested like on the thing that I worry thinking lame. I don't get me started. I'll get worked up. Well I think but I think I think you have a very interesting graph on your website that I'm glad you're just used teed up perfectly for me to hit a big Phil Mickelson calf bomb here That that play versus Grind Graph Raff. We talked about the motivation to play the game. And and how you have to create a play feature to those that are not motivated and then as they become self motivated to to become better as y'all can become more of a grind basis so to your point about the driving range thing right you you get a high school kid that wants to play college. Golf doesn't need necessarily the Games on the putting green to want to get better. We give us right. Yeah so I I. Thoroughly enjoy loyd graph. I think it's awesome if I was sharing that thing everyday across every social media platform because at this kind of speaks to every junior coach that that literally the name of our coaching kit. It's the play grind and just really quickly. It's our philosophy around you know sort of well-known research around deliberate flavors deliver practice right. So you're going going every golf pro again the twenty-three-year-old let's use this guy again right he's going to a TPI level one. Just because I got noth- wrote CPI but right right right in your hand if you've been to a guy okay ninety nine percent okay. And he's getting the Jong coattail research around. Hey from seven to eleven eleven year in high deliver. Play low deliver practice right. Because if you don't then you're over specializing you got psychological burnout and everyone's like Yep I totally agree and John McCain and others are saying okay like twelve years old. You're starting to whittle down. You know not as many sports and now it's time to introduce traduced deliberate practice right so everyone's like okay. Ten thousand hour rule. Let's do and that that's cool and that's appropriate but but here is the opportunity for every single one of those. TPI Level one attendees learn. What play is? Don't stop at Djonko tasting you deliberate play. Oh and I'm here to tell you right. You know tossing balls around uh-huh and running around and doing athlete first initiatives right. We all look at that. It's like oh they're playing. Okay yeah that's one kind kind of play. There is a way way richer possibility space around play right. That's more golf specific. That's one part hard physical one part psychological right that evokes all kinds of different emotions. Like if you understand how play working. How Games work and you can deploy Quoi that you got the big problem in your market and it's not even close? I mean yeah I think the maybe the overlying problem there is like when we say the word play most people. I don't know how to play a lot of fun. It's like that person at the party is like I'm a good time right but then you're like wait. I'm not really a get time because all kids just you know hitting water balloons and you know swinging at you know Golf Zillah and and you know yelling and music and that's cool but that's like you know again that's that's just high novelty surface level. Play that like okay. We already did the water thing. What's next you know? There's there's no changing scope of strategy there's no storyline. There's no dramatic ARCS. There's there's no real game mechanics. There's no injury like again when you when you understand. How Games work you you you start poking holes In West commonplace. Yeah no I mean I think that's that's it right. I mean the and that's kind of what I saw when I was at Westhaven prior was at the kids were literally just show so Do the do the camp. We had like a five week camp right in your Typical Club junior program five week camp in the spring after school. Let me do like a week long one or two in the summer than other file week. One instance after school in the fall and literally. That was the only time we saw all the kids are. They never showed up unless already committed playing. But that goes back to your your chart in. And so that's when that's how I came to the kids equation McGuinness's Mrs Awhile back. But it was like. How do I get the kids to show up between these camps because right now I'm just babysitting and you know and that's where it at the time? The levels was a good start to it because we would always leave the camp on a cliff note of the last pin that had to get was to go like shoot a certain score for nine holes right sure from like a set of tees and and we wouldn't do it in the can't we would put it to the parent and be like you know. This is something that you have to take your kid out to the golf course to do. Do and some that Youtube in new the parent are going to have to be honest and sign the card that.

We have the owner and director of discover golf. His name is Richard Franklin he is game buying your. You're junior golf programs. And the actually reached out to me through the social media and wanted to Share what he's doing the game and how he's grown it and Helping the other professionals like myself who teach a lot of kids Really improve their junior program so as I do all my guess I did a little homework on them and I liked what he has so oh this is a great chance to pick his brain a little bit more learn more about him and let him share what he's doing how he got into this Arena so Richard Research. Why don't you give us a little bit of background of how you got into the game and and word that start view? Yeah Hey thank you for having me Really a pleasure to be here So yeah I'm I'm a lifetime Player athletes have been around the game. As long as I can remember My parents are from Zimbabwe. Actually originally so I got my kind of spark With nick crises a family friend and Have kind of a international background and so it was fortunate enough to kind of play. Golf all over the world get the game from different perspectives and so oh A little bit of a different background from that standpoint but You know love at first sight kind of thing Always you know whacking away playing Ryan and You know was was a avid athlete. You know growing up middle school high school so Tennis Football Basketball you name. It played at all And then that graduated into a short stints You know on the beach or is that played Canadian tour for a couple of seasons and you know bouncing housing off That kind of you know minor leagues and Stayed Open Circuit and at the time. Nationwide Monday qualifying scene. And here I I have now and it's awesome. So what was that like when you decided to. Because kinda would ask everybody when the decide to play a little golf was the catalyst for you that. Did you decide that. That's what you wanted to do. Well I think I think I always You know that was always the dream and you know. My parents instilled in me. This idea that you know the worst possible thing would be to look back and have regrets So you know it was kind of always going to be And you know as hard as I could attempt at it And then you know it didn't work out and I saw the shortcomings of my game and you know some some of the luster in the romance of You know playing pro golf. You know that that wears them pretty quickly when you're living out suitcase and Yeah so so I think it was. It was never a question I was always going to try it So there wasn't really one sort of catalyst moment Think if you ask me when I was eight years his old. I'm GonNa tell you I was going to find a way to lease. We taste it. Yeah man I mean. I think that's count one. That goes back to his mantras. Shoot for the stars. Ars encasing land on the moon or something like that right You never you never really know what you're capable loving tape your feet in the fire and that speech that testament so you try your hand out out there playing in the in the pro ranks in and you decide that the better income is trying something else and not just you know not just the income component you know because it took a while as it does for all coaches two bills. You know a substantial livelihood coaching right so that there's a brick by brick process to so it wasn't like I was under any illusion that I was gonNA start. You know printing money on the other end of the equation but it's I think it was. It was a quality of life thing for me I You know I'm I was at the point where it was like. Okay the physical. We'll toll of this or even physical stimulation of this. You know the working out You know rolling the dice shooting. Good scores mean that. That's a very real positive thing but but you know from an intellectual standpoint You know I just found it you know. Obviously it's a lonely road road and your chip in putting playing all day long long. I've always been a thinker and so it wasn't really satisfying me On that end of the equation So I think to be to be honest You know that was that was the reason to get out of it. No I mean that. And that's a that's a great insight for anybody out there. This thing about teaching right. It does take a minute to Philip Book. It did for me and it does everybody in. I think and kind of what you've done though with your discover golf brand is if you can find a niche pitch in in something that you're good at and and be good at it and show people that you're good at then you can be successful right instead of trying to be a jack-of-all-trades trades you can hone in on that and that saying that you do well man you can absolutely be phenomenal and grow from there. So how did discover golf. take shape. What was that catalyst for that? Well that that's a winding road It in every possible sense so I was From the golfing machine more ad Sort of angle on things you know when I was in college and playing professionally in that obviously informs uh-huh You Know My early coaching which you know looking back You know you can do a lot worse than more at you know. At least as it's kind of framework I think I think so You know that parlayed in zoo you know spending time with Mac and thinking about all that stuff saying okay. How do I measure? You know what we're talking about. Right some of the terms get kinda nebulous and so I took a deep dive into one of the first people to have flight scope and Later on am eight sensor and You know it was looking at the you know. How Three D. was correlating to you? You know the geometry they hit and you know we all know where that's going and it was a really interesting puzzle And I enjoyed it for a couple of years and I think what it led me to was was a was an understanding that You know you could be saying all of the right things. Thanks right and in terms of okay. This is what you're doing x. y. and the wrist angles Hips and trunk you know rotations Shen ratios x-factor stretches and you're measuring put ground interface on your swing cat and yet yet. That's an incomplete answer to the client right so I kinda had this falling out with that and saying that there's a human human being here that is not going to practice necessarily anything that I'm telling him even though it's the most factual representation Tation I can give them of what's going on and so that led me sort of a much deeper place about you know why people fundamentally are motivating to be here in the first place In this was all happening at the same time that my junior practice was You know really taking shape right so I was working with good players almost exclusively and working with kids. It's kind of a side project and then you realize well. Hey that's a that's a whole nother other puzzle right. It's not just how people are motivated. you know. What's the developmental psychology behind? You know kids in their motivation right so there. There's another sort of subject of study. This was all sort of the the petri dish You know that's that discover golf you know came out nice. Yeah I mean they hit the nail on the head there when you just can't talk about like that that Petri dish effect right. I mean it's just like you see like one little stem take off and then unrealized can multiply and multiply and multiply and just keep becoming an animal So the the junior golf thing Kinda gained your attention. I and obviously that's where you've lead your career towards so For for you as a as a coach I think you hit the nail on the head when you talked about the like we we know we wanna know it as a scientific level but there are clients. Don't care they just want to get better. They don't care about the physics of the slain. They just want this not WanNa thank thank so we have it. Look I'm not and I'm and I'm not suggesting that the goal of doesn't need to know it at that level right I. I don't think they need to take like I. Did you know four years of their life. you know digging into that Manusha you know to that level but you know I'll just I'll put it like this. You know I think for me that the major inspiration was Constraints let approach and for those. That are going to be listening to to this. That aren't familiar with that term. You know I think the easiest way to say it that You as the coach wanted design environments right right which which then net out the kind of movement change. You know that you're looking to have happened with your student right. So if you want them them to swing their path more to the right or to the left or whatever it may be you know you can constrain the environments right. That would've deuce that movement without you necessarily saying anything. So the the problem with that is if you're a young cat and you say hey dig that constraint stuff. That's that's where I'm GonNa go with my coaching. But you've never fixed a slice before or you don't understand the underlying movement sequence geometry of what's going non well then you're in trouble too right. So I think for coaches. I advocate. Call it more of a you know a a attack rich learning experience right understand all the components. Make sure you have a bunch of different lenses cave you know Body tracks swing cats. Make sure you spend some time on her radar right all the tools that we have and then sort of okay. Put those off to the side and various buckets and then say okay. I'm GONNA move some stuff around right whether it's gates or cones or Goals or equipment right moving some of the constraints around and then sort of just check in with all of those various buckets. That you have and say I can articulate Eli. I'm doing this because I want his pressure to. You know get left. You know sooner you know so that you've got a more centered. Act Whatever you want to do at least you. You have a a kind of reference point to that is that makes sense. Yeah no absolutely absolutely so talk to us about discover golf. What like what is it? Exactly the. And how can coaches use it in their programs. Well so so you know talking about constraints let approach you know I got to the conclusion that okay And as I referenced before you've got this unbelievably interesting and messy human motivation component which is a constraint and itself right which is the human being asked to do the task at hand so Discover Golf with thinking about. Okay how how do you take those confluence of ideas and presented in a formalized capacity to the golf coach right so The conclusion I had was that games in gender and have those qualities inherent to them so Basically the last eight years of my life has been devoted to studying You Know Games as a scholarship and as a discipline and then being able to graft those ideas on top.
