So he was put in charge of the development of reserves and today on has twenty marine parks covering twenty eight percent of their exclusive economic zone. National Geographic is pushing to preserve something like thirty percent of the planet that's land and Sea by the year twenty thirty. Is something like that possible given the scale of the destruction that you detail in this book in and just how because we have that reserve of of oil and natural gas and other we don't need the balance in some ways that other species do can you preserve thirty percent of the planet? I think we can because some countries have already done it. But also we have no alternative. If, we are to prevent the extinction of one million species globally. If we are to prevent the collapse of our life support system. If we won nature to continue helping us. Reviews the impacts of climate change. Through absorption. So absorbing throwing much of the carbon pollution that we explained to the atmosphere, we need half of the Planet Natural State And the scientific studies are very clear about this and thirty percent of the Planet Protected Land And Sea by twenty thirty is a I would say. Absolutely necessary and negotiable milestone. We are not talking about. A luxury for.

"Sneaking hard and you hear stories like I'm tired of shooting fifteen hundred coming in thirty s on the European entire the the next level's below below the tour is so hard But again for all the kids are listening to take advantage of the technology you have mean. Most teenagers have cell phones phones. Record your swing. Even if you don't report from the right spot just do something to try and figure out what the issue is. And that's where you have like. You said a lot of these online programs grants where you can go back to old videos old data and see what you did when you did it well and what did you doing. You're doing it wrong again. And that's a really component to teasing that. We have now that I've really enjoyed using. I'll tell you that. Yeah I really enjoy having all that data to go back and say look at. Where are you used to be where you are? Now you know much better. You are and All those things but no I use coach now and I'm having these kids put in there or adults put in their their tournament scores for me because a lot of them aren't here all the time and pictures with them. Winning tournaments were how they played or how they felt. Or whatever in between you know our time together It's important to have a record of what happened. Seems Oh back can say you know. I'm really hit nickel. Today was feeling now. Definitely go back to that day. Definitely what one other thing I want to pick your brain before before we get to the counter wrap up portion Is it says he got some gears action on their on your website and gear for the coaches out there are what are some patterns that you see if you put juniors on it you know where some patterns that you see through gears with the kids That might be commonplace. Listen in what do you look for as far as We have a new junior golfer on that system in and what are some good trends and what are some trends. That are common that you have to fix six. Yeah it's Kinda common and we see it on video twos the slide. Right slide out. They lied a lot latterly. And in as they're hitting the ball and they don't turn real well and just introducing turn to them huge sliding it just messes up the club face pretty bad and what the call ups ads doing and being Show them that and three and then have measurements of it. How how much? They slid gears. That's kind of cool. And you know then it's a it's a measurement right just like track man you might say. Hey you know you you you move this much this many inches or that many inches on now. What how did that feel that kind of stuff so we can fix it? You know I also use gears from a fitness perspective too. You know. Sometimes you would the kids. I mean you know you know. Kids can't touch your toes right right so available to see how much they turn their shoulders. How much they rotate their hips? And all that kind of stuff in the numeric fascist. You know whether they're old area you you know That's a pretty cool tool to be able to have and then we've got trachman there too so you don't do all that stuff together It's it's been fun to the kids. The kids love it when we can get him on gears What true coaching programs be? The adults. they get better well. Let's say everybody gets better faster on years. No doubt because you see it differently than you do on video because you can see in Three D. above your head and everything so it's a pretty cool thing I'm pretty blessed to be able to teach with years. Well that and it's like a video game for the kids to right. I mean that's their chance to look themselves like their plan now. Three D video game right. I mean that's I think that's probably the big thing that I think. A lot of my kids enjoy with track man and force plates and any time it looks like a video game man. This kid's nerd out. They love it absolutely no. It definitely looks like video game All right well so I know you got a busy morning I gotta go chase a couple kids at swim class Before we wrap up I just want to say I appreciate you taking the time to chat and share your insights on the podcast and I know a lot of people. Listen are GonNa really enjoy this one too and Covari shared a good bit of information with us. But I always like to ask the guest one last little nugget. And it's an opportunity for you to Share something that motivates bates you every day or something that you tell your kids motivate them to get them to the next round was something that you kind of pass on to the world as golf coach. Yeah I'm I'm very big if you found me online working heart. I've I believe that as long as you you try you try your best. There's no shame in now may not win all the time. But you gave it your all. If you don't try you don't know what you can do. And that's that's a big thing for me. I I appreciate my students when I know that they've worked hard. It's like you said earlier earlier. You Never WanNa give the same lassen twice when you can see progress. You know they put time in. That's all I want for people man. That's and that's that's goal to. And and I tell every parent in India hit the nail on the head. I tell every I don't reward results reward effort and so even if they to try something new with their swing that we're doing technically and they with but they may be over did what I asked him to do. I'm applauded they look at me like sideways. And I'm like I. I don't care that you with that was ridiculously different than what you just did. Five seconds ago. So we're onto say that's not that's not what we're working on right right exactly and always having to make sure that they know what they're trying to do. The cheat pretty cool. That's awesome coach. Mike I appreciate it time. What are some of the best ways people to track you down? They don't already and follow you online in and see the awesome stuff. You're doing there absolutely.

"Is that the parents come tell you one thing became I tell you another but at the same time. They're both trying to get the same result as happiness penis for their kid. Sure Yeah it's amazing right the the Less than T. is the biggest confessional. I know and You learn a lot from someone when you're teaching them Or their child or adult and the relationship between parent coaches is really important but at the same time the parents have to let coach coach. And I wouldn't tell your child how parents so you know Has Ask to ask to work both ways though. And you're right. A lot of parents seem to think that they can coach. But you know I. I learned that early on I I. I have to have two hats on one nine with my daughter. Here's the coach chat. And here's The dad and have you know and jobs that the dad hat has to be the one that consoles when we don't play well in the CO chat has say. Hey this is what we have to do. And that's that's the hard part is like and I had that even with my With nine now wife when we were dating I was teaching her Towards the end of her college career she came back from injury I she just decided. Let me start working. Were there and when we went to go play we oughta make it explicitly clear on the first box on my like hide the coach today or am I the boyfriend today. And that's how he go play like if if if I blurred the lines it was a bad around the golf for both of us. Actually a AH that is so important because you know you you have to and you know okay and and what we did was we we. We made sure that you know you're going to have a lasting with that. And and we structured it like that you know. It wasn't go goof around that time you were little you know and having that mentality going into it and it may be you know we we maybe go on the golf course you know. Of course we're having fun and all that stuff but it Yeah you have to have two hats on your apparent and coach definitely know what to say when what's going to make a difference absolutely well my let's Let's talk about something. Need you have coming up on your plate that you've worked on for a while now and in excited to release it in the time of this podcast probably couldn't be better honestly So Todd was m g university and what that's going to entail online yes Very excited spin about four years of work. You know I don't i. Don't sit around making videos all the time. I'm busy teaching so China put this together. It's been pretty What it is? It's a online site To learn the game of golf it is the Online School of golf for calling. MSG versity and right now. We have put together. The library of all different types of things to learn about the game of golf have over two hundred videos in there ain't now so I'm really excited. I get it all done. And after the first of the year we'll have online online classes with the game. All right now or writing on the rules of golf or doing some other ones as well just to teach people the game and Big thing for me is is that You know my students will be going back looking at that stuff. Now what did you say about this. What do we do about that? You know and also having Brenton Frank part of Mike Fay golf and and having their knowledge in MFG versity. I E is pretty cool as well. So branch Davis is the PGA Learning Coordinator for the PGA. Australia living in He is been writing from my sight for a while since I believe two thousand twelve and frank style as the PGA meals official down in Saint Clair Michigan. And he's a master professionals. Well Frank He's been raining for a little bit longer. Her for my site and about the rules Goff and teaching and things like that so Those guys are big part of what I do with my face off and the limited all in all these different stuff. That's pretty neat. Definitely and I think that's you know you mean the ask the pros pro. Show right that you do on on twitter have a very large online presence already from doing things like that. What what led you to to being motivated to take on the online rains? Probably maybe make before. Most people even consider doing it. I mean you're up you're on the forefront guys getting online hustle so what led you to go down that route. Yeah I basically osada necessity. 'cause we are a long ways away from from any big metropolitan area here in northern Michigan. We're four hours away from Detroit and I needed to bring golf to as many people deep was I could and at the time when I started asking the pro is it's it's been an unbelievable blessing for me. I've learned so much from so many people in the golf industry through starting that on twitter and develop so many really cool relationships with people It's been unbelievable boy actually and the bring all those people very very talented people in the golf industry together to help others play better In a way that that no one's done before you know it was Craig goal to do. I mean I have the timeline even know overdo. It didn't know about Hashtag this this. What's a Hashtag whatever and we just started learning as we go we are one of the first branded hashtags from twitter? Her new these things where we had to submit to it. They had no regulations hash tagging. Stop and then they. It came out with all these rules. And how high the font had to be what fun. H- had B- and all this stuff and a week later we see on TV. You know old old twitter bird and Hashtag NBC sports. And that's you know the same type of font that we have for the pro logo because they just didn't didn't have that It was so new and we're building it up and they twitter. What we're you know what we did there? As things grow things change and people are more into. That's why we do our live stream now are more into live stuff. I still use twitter. A bunch but Not Doc near as much as I used to now. I'm doing other things like instagram and livestream I mean Saddam was not around back. Then the you know building a pretty big following on instagram and I'm doing You know the livestream which has been absolute blast doing on our show on Sunday nights. When we're in the off-season has been fun getting everyone together and it's been you to watch pretty cool? Yeah you know. Oh and that's That's something I've tried to lay had opportunity to go back to my university presents to our program about scaling a business in in in becoming a teacher professional final from an area that I basically had no ties to And one of the things I told the kids and I got the chance to teach one of the classes. Believe it or not Add to the seniors. And that's almost that you think about. Where's the world going golf's not in and for some reason? Golf always seems to think it's some kind of bubble that it's that it's immune to where the world's heading like you know digging it out of the dirt when you have gears track me. Why beat out of the dirt radar? They'll tell you exactly exactly what you did wrong. You know and so I tell them look. I was going through McDonald's for breakfast a few months earlier before this mutation I said and there is an uber eats logo in the McDonald's dryer. So I pay somebody to go through the drive through for me to get my McDonald's breakfast because because I don't want to do that as how long do you think golfing instruction one on one face to face is going to be the mainstay. Obviously that's when we get a lot of things done. It's a lot easier to teach face to face and it is over the phone over a skype session or online lesson stuff like that but at the end of the day. Hey I'm here to tell you. The masses are going to want that online game versus the the others because at one hour lesson for us to our venture for them you know I. Yeah I mean I I do a lot of skype in a lot of you know just because of what I've done and we're doing skype and facetime and people and their on coaching programs for it. I'd stop you. Know they might come up and see me once or twice a summer but other eight sometimes their online with me Zan. It's pretty cool being able to do that. bringing you know helping them play better when they ace stick their sticking the dirt mate but their phone on and I'm their facetime them giving them a lesson that's cool stuff and and then all this stuff absolutely now I you know first time I did it. How was like wow you know? But I- learning learning how to do that stuff. I really learned the online stuff through the golf channel. So thanks so I'm Michigan's first. Golf Channel Swing fix instructor where people send and and and then we. You know how tried to help them through our recording and drawing lines and things like that and Be being able to do all that stuff like we do now. It's just second nature. It's no problem to be able to. Have you know a few doing every night. And then you know the communication to back and forth. I mean I remember when when I was little we'd be lucky to get a piece of paper from the coach at said. Okay you're aiming way too farda right all the time and you name more parallel target. You know whatever it was and now being able to share these videos back and forth and and do a live stuff. That's crazy cool and that's the best thing that's how kids were me. I don't I don't get onto my kids but some Outright him a little bit if they come in and say that they struggled for a week and a half in between lessons with something and that flared up and also like and they come in and it's the same issue tackled when they left the door from the last lesson. I'll look gas cell phone. Yeah does it have a camera right. Yeah unlike why not get a video sent it to me. I don't know I you have my phone number right. Yeah you've seen it before right. Yeah Okay so in the future you. Have you have all this at your fingertips you're right. I mean I remember as a kid I had. HSA tape connected to the shot TV drawn expert the TV's and you didn't have that opportunity when you know when we're gonna hit balls and stuff and and now like I said I think that's why I think that's the big reason why the bottom of the PGA tour is so much better than what it was twenty years ago because coach better. Oh yeah it. It's not like five guys out there teaching that have all the secrets. It's like hundreds of rose. Now have those secrets..

"And a lot of times. Those kids turn into competitive golfers and they're playing golf in high school or teaching them playing for school teams and stuff like that. And that's important to me to keep it that family atmosphere fun that way and then you know then the kids come back and they they might be helping out you know with helping me teach the learn the game and they bring back their medals and trophies and things that they win tournaments awesome stuff when they're playing high school golf that that's really really cool. That's what it's all about and have someone to look up to you know mentoring it's in quarter absolutely and you know it's it's funny because you know my my coach. When I was a kid might have been ahead of time or even realized it or maybe he was? This lazy took advantage of me but He he would bring me in to help with his junior camps And on their forget it I was like sixteen or seventeen years old and and I had hit a chip shot for the camp to win all free ice cream sandwiches right and as a sixteen year old watching the bunch like eight to ten year olds. They're sweating out over whether I'd hold a chip shot chatter not was kind of a Iraq and hit for me right but even I've tried to do that with some of Mike Things that I've done is the junior that you surround for you as kids. I would hire a lot of my high school competing golfers to To help me run it right. I'd have them. Do timing stations. Help them help me score setup. Tease even start on the first tee and a lot of them will come back and just Kinda go matt and I realize all the things that go into an event unlike and this is a simple junior tortoise is not even aj Jay level like in a town full circle for you know it really does. Because they don't they don't realize all the stuff that takes too you know in when that going into setting up the act is for the day right Well just teaching the programming Well being there early all that kind of stuff to get things ready so that we can do it. Right and it's It's a really good learning things. Thanks for for them to be involved in Whole mentoring program like that I'm also involved in the first northern Michigan. I'm on the Board of directors here on my end We've done a really good job of getting golf in the schools and going elementary schools teaching that in the wintertime and I'm pretty excited. We we need this past year we got a PGA junior league together Run through. Here's the first team. We have three teams. And it's been tough. We don't have a lot of kids that live up here and to get all the kids together and all cool. All the golf pros rose in our area pool and all the kids gather that we have and put it together. It was pretty cool so I'm really proud of the the first. He's got some great initiatives initiatives there and and Kinda glanced at. It taught us more about that than middle school programs where you go to the schools. You know I'm not sure everybody knows about that kind of opportunity. Yes Going into the school first and foremost It seems to me that are Gym Teachers Love US A lot. 'cause they get a day off apps along so going in and scheduling at With them was pretty simple to do. And and Just introducing the kids the game ago Some of them will be kids. That are participate in junior golf programs with the I t your my program or whatever but a lot of them never had exposure to golf for and to put the golf club in their hand and have some fun and the gym. We'll get them to hit snag equipment around and stuff like that. It has really helped to grow all of our programs that way Because because they just don't you know I just don't play off and they've never been exposed to it and now they are so it's pretty cool to be have the opportunity to it and and and what better way better way to bring an opportunity to somebody that typically wouldn't take the time to drive to the golf course or have the opportunity to drive to the golf course. It's right now you'd bring it to them and that's awesome easiest way to get things you know to new clients is if you take it to him and I've always I thought that you know inside the school programs awesome. Because it's just it it gives everybody a chance at maybe would never had that chance tied I A- applaud the efforts every day it's awesome. It's good stuff is how did you get involved with the kids stuff. Top fifty master coach. How how did the? How does that work grams? How'd you get very black To be named that Yeah I think going down and being trained You know being certified. That was very very helpful to me. Actually he gave me a different perspective on coaching golf You know I had a lot of the programs in place but it changed the way that I caught it which was was knee the whole entire scaling program all that kind of stuff learned a lot from John and John It. US Kids Golf and You know implementing that into my programming has just helped it. You know we have a program here at Boynton gene called. The junior has a program where kids can Made by a set of clubs and they can trade him in when they girl and Bat has helped a lot too is just to have the right set of clubs uh-huh and the kids hands and let them play their best that trade him in and we rotate them around. And that's been pretty neat to see in that program grow grow over the years while the kids model The the thing that stood out to me the most about the club perspective was when when they said you know let the kids grow out of the clubs and into clubs and When I heard that for the first time as a young pro like and that is makes way way too much sense how we never thought about that? You know because you know even when I was growing up everybody's perspective always just make them a little bit longer so you can grow into it and and then light. They brought up the like the sixty inch driver. Here's swing this. You know it's like you're trying to swing up your forty. You know forty driver in their forty eight inches tall. Like that's.

And in fact one of the schools as everybody knows that our state you're in Michigan. I decided I wanted to go to New Mexico and Play Golf Offi around. So that's that's what we did One of the first if not I graduate from Michigan to go through the professional management program. There and Yeah I learned a lot going through the PGN program and got to experience a lot of different facilities Priscilla's and different things that I wanted to do and e- and and here I am here at Boyne resorts are northern Michigan. Now so be cool right up on over the last twenty five years or so. We have a bad. I'd made the decisions you did. I I grew up in Pennsylvania boy and and I would have been a third generation Penn State but despite my dad's dismay are random Mississippi state for the same reasons and the The PGA Program Mississippi State and never looked back and now sitting in Nashville Wondering when summer is going to end but now as great and so what was kind of your teaching background. So how'd you after you graduated from New Mexico state and had the experiences at different facilities as for your internship rotations. What you will teach under? WHO's your Your mental and brought you into teaching the game. The way you do well. Actually I had moved my way up into Being had professional and I was just giving lessening run. They're running our junior golf programs at different facilities phillies. So I spent some time out in New Jersey for about seven years and learned a lot there In fact go back a little bit. I believe the first junior golf program I ever was involved in was one that I did. A co-op up in iron mountain and That was a huge learning experience. Or one hundred fifty kids or so in it and boy did I learned a lot that summer Running running down so you know it going throughout my career. I eventually got to the point where I had to make a choice. I was teaching more and more I was about ready to have a family and made the choice to teach fulltime and It was a great choice for me. I can spend a lot more time with my family family now Teaching and I lot of my influences come from A lot of the head professionals Shnell that I've been involved in going all the way back to Ray Bolo back. In the days of Western Golf and Country Club and Redford Michigan State Randy Erskine on. So you're a great oaks here in Michigan and then when you're working under and with I took a lot of lashes spent a lot of time with Mike Adams which was fantastic and you know it That was really neat to teach me how to teach which was cool and Just made my way around around and and You know found out that I believe that the The big thing with with teaching kids is is is community. You Know Matt and Bringing that together and We have a very small community here in northern Michigan again and and I knew that I could grow the game of golf if I could get How families playing golf and that? That's our goal here bring resorts. Well you know. And that's when you're when you're an assistant pro that's probably the easy way to get into. Teaching is because unfortunately it's one of those things that if if you're a busy club is kind of punted down to the third assistant or second assistant but if you have a passion for teaching the junior programs is a great way to pick up the reins because if you get the kids is playing guests who shows up behind the kids parents right. And there's no doubt about that for sure you know and I take it to such a level here is getting the community involved in getting sponsorship local companies and and like you said it facilitates other lessons on top of the junior programming right and It's fills up our golf courses and Increases sales tails and equipment and it does a lot for our community here. was interesting to you brought in sponsors to help with that as well to really you know Expand that so. How did you cooperate for? Because there's a lot of coaches I listen to. How did you incorporate sponsors Shire's to do junior programs yeah basically Discu- went in asked You know we've got this tournament here are we. You know. Would you like to sponsor this basically And the term it's run our family golf events and and We run the Boyne Mountain Junior Cup term it series so there's really four events throughout the summer and two of them the kids play with the parent Tor- another family members partner and then they play by themselves in the last two they play the ball one and then the last ones aglow ball championships. So you know getting that involved you know with the local community especially at a resort is really really important From a perspective Gets those parents and and helps even just within the sponsors and having all these these kids out playing it's It's a pretty cool thing to do and going around and rotating the sponsorship every year That's neat and and nothing like it's crazy sponsorship. You know except it's sponsorship to be able to have the kids wear certain clothes or a hat or water bottle or whatever it is that they're going to be sponsoring for these events prizes things like that so that definitely in the twos is pro sometimes. The hardest part is Making it cost effective for everybody right making the concern you get paid and and it's cheap for the parents and and and everybody wins on both sides and bringing in a sponsor that could help facilitate the financial title needs to really blow up the camp. The way you want to write. Maybe can help you get some new gear some like you said some like payroll or a uniform for the kids stuff like that. I mean it's really helps kind of tie things together when you can bring in a little extra financing in New Cool toys for the kids at kind of attract them to the game does do that right and always having their name associated with Youth. Programming is very very helpful. Yeah internationally so let me ask you this question then since we're already kind of heading in the junior programs and and how you got your start there It will come to your website. You see there's like a new to the game kind of learn the game programs you have for the younger kids are just getting started in consultant. You like to to gain a Fi- a little bit right in and make it interesting so talk to us about when you're starting out with young young kids. 'cause I've I've had a lot of emails Nelson podcasts by parents with three and four year olds that you want to be the next tiger woods and they're sending an email like should we be taking lessons on Kinda like I think there's there's a good avenue but let's not worry about the mechanics just yet but talk to us about how you How you work with the young kids and get them started one one of my goals through the learn the game program that the kids are having so much fun? They don't even know they're learning golf now. That sounds funny right. But it is and that's the purpose of it and and to show them things having games that teach them distance control and things like that but they're just having a blast doing it. You know pulling out the snag golf stuff and anything to teach them different things that they don't know and And then at the end pull it together into golf right and make it about off. And that's what I do through all the different things that we do learn the game and it's a blast have fun and Also getting the parents involved too right so having the parents there is really important and this is not this program I run with learn. The game is not a drop off. I'll see you later program. The parents are right. There cheering having fun with their kids. being engaged in the activities. And what's funny to cure his parents going home and having to play these games with occur. Kids are which Greenie in just facilitates more. Aw and get them involved absolutely and I think the way out is describe it to parents is Kinda like 'cause you know it's easy as a parent to forget what it was like when you're like five years old right because it's so but I told them as I just remember when you're back in school when you had to sit in your least favorite subject and it stunk because you hated sitting there like grind near gears over yo a mathematical equation Asian but if the teacher all said and made it like a massive massillon and you had the light compete against other people in solving problems all of a sudden you kinda wanted to like be good added right that little competitive spart made that undesirable subject a little bit more interesting and if we do that golf that kid. That may not really enjoy. The I can't make contact every time can find a way to enjoy the game because of a simple. You know the drill or simple game that you put into the challenge for them it now now start to enjoy it a little bit better and I think that's huge. The young kids I mean in a even at even at the older ages two and I think he said something really key earlier on to about how the community which golfs thrives in makes it a better arena so talk to us more about that community factor with kids helping other kids. It's yeah kids helping other kids. I mean one of the things that pride into that The kids that are out of the program. So you're in the program. Starting at five to twelve appears old and once they get out of the program. I asked the kids that are out of the program to come help me teach it the next year.

"So for the finest golf courses, you will ever set your eyes on some of the most beautiful terrain that God ever graced on our earth here is an opportunity for you as a golfer to also upskill, upgrade, your skills in to make yourself a better golfer. So imagine combining just the thrill and the fun and the experience of playing great golf courses while also working on your game. And that is what Mike Fay, offers you, when you come to the Boyne golf academy, and his director of player performance, Mike, good morning to you give morning. So talk to me about the technology that is that you now offer here, and I think, you know, we, we've all watched on TV the what is basically the track man showing the ball flight, you can do the same thing for us instead of Mike in a really. Micro screening, what we're doing with our golf club in the swing. Yeah. It's really cool to be able to show you guys what you're doing, and then how to fix it yourself. Right. And we've got some of the highest technology in the state here with track man, and gears golf. No, I'm familiar with track man. Tell me about years, gears, is our three D motion capture system that we have here where you get dressed up in a suit and you put a bunch of dots on their Nico into our three room and we use it for club fitting, and coaching and boy, does it help us do better Joe. They actually did that years ago with Bobby Jones at Warner Brothers studios, where they had him where different color shirts, and you could see what he was doing. What, of course they didn't have the high speed photography that they do now, which is what really makes this possible where you can really micro analyze what's going on? It's, it's really neat. We can it's accurate up to the with of slice of paper. He'll say slice, please don't say. That's just a cruel because there's another S word. I don't want you to say, either because I've been doing that to how what kind of is it a three day golf academy? How many days do you offer and give us a sense of what kind of investment, we're making with our time? Yeah, we've got different programs that offer gears along with them. We've got a number of different coaching programs that will put people on that include gears with them, which is pretty neat. So, yeah. We use it for fitting seeking get fitted for your entire bag. You can use it for a gears golf lesson. And then with our slack off schools, too. So a bunch of stuff that is useful. Are there pay? They're playing instruction opportunities as well actually. Yes, our coaching programs include on course coaching, which is. That is amazing. When we get out with you guys and help you, I know course how much faster you get better. Why is that? Why is it's almost like the the in the ranger in the lab. But something different happens when you're out in the middle of a fair way and you're one fifty out, and you're trying to hit that shot to zone on the green that seems so small, but it, it, it does change your perspective, doesn't it does, you know, when you put a club down for a lineman or something like that, on the range in your staying the same spot every time and you're working on something or your aiming at the same flag? All the time. Yeah. It's not reality. It's not the way it get in on the golf course. Right. You know I had a teacher a long time ago. Watching me practice in watching different lies. I was hitting from, and I'll just scrape over just hit it, and he'd walk over and eat. What do you wanna t while you're chipping? That's how you get out on the golf course. And he was exactly right. Right. And that, you know, going over putting you guys in different situations, and teaching you how to get out of them in the least amount of strokes is important. And how important is it to practice with purpose to say okay, I'm not only going to try to hit that flag in the distance, but I also wanna hit it with a little draw. I want to get it with a little cut. I wanna do something should every shot, you need to have a purpose. Not just hitting balls does not banging them. Exactly. You want to be able to no matter what level golfer you are. You're going to have a purpose and a goal that you set for yourself. And that's what keeps you out there practicing and gives you the motivation to do so, right? Right. So talk to me about we've got family fun days. You've got some speed training. And, and tell us what we only got forty five seconds left, but you've got some major events coming up, we make sure folks know about we do yesterday was women's golf day. And it was really cool. We at golf clinics, and that kind of leads into. To the end of the month. We've got ladies four ladies only gospel at Boyne mountain. We've got the speed training with Jaffer off getting you to swing the club, a lot faster and move way, better and plus for trained in TPI. So we can look at your golf swing in a total different way. Help you with your body to play better. All right. And yeah. And we as we've found out with our good friend, Frank. You, you, you gotta take care of the fitness, part of this, too, because if you're going to be doing a lot of swinging, you wanna be a make sure that you're doing the right exercises at home to prepare for that protect the back, especially Mike Faye. Thanks so much. We appreciate what you're doing up here and making us better players that we should wait, as view, of course, is just that much more. You bet.

Our guest tonight is David qualm in he has studied at both Yale and Oxford, which means he is released smart, and he has spent his life writing amazing. And I will say amazing stories about nature evolution and man's relationship to the natural world. He contributes to National Geographic magazine and can claim to have been the sole author of one issue, which is. Claim. You can only aspire to in your dreams. He wrote the song of the dodo monster of God, the reluctant Mr. Darwin, spillover Ebola, the chimp in the river and a book about Yellowstone. And most recently, his book the tangled tree, which we are thrilled and honored to speak to him about tonight. David, welcome to the show. Thank you for KiKi. Great to be with you. Great to be with you. Twisters. What have I got? I've got horizontal gene transfer. I've got into symbiosis, I've got tangled trees. I've got transposons. I've got Lynn Margolis Carlos. Oh my gosh. You're teasing up a storm here. Let's go, let's go, yes, all the things now. All right. You have written about the natural world for years and I decade and I, I did become aware of your writing through the song of the dodo. What is it that draws you to write about the natural world? Like what? What inspires you to keep writing amazing book after amazing book? Well, I am deeply interested in evolution, ecology conservation biological diversity on planet earth. Following brilliant scientists, men and women through jungles and swamps getting my feet dirty seeing Komodo dragons running up cliff sites. And learning about the mysteries of molecular biology as well as every other kind of balancing. It's a, I started as a as a fiction writer, and then I gravitated into nonfiction, and the natural sciences became a journalistic beat. So I've been doing this now since about nineteen eighty and I don't have a job, but if I had a job, this would be the world's best job. It would be could be night would, but I don't have one I'm a freelancer, I'm yeah, I'm you have probably of so many probably amazing stories from your experiences. I was reading about a one of your journeys, hiking transact. Oh, oh, this was the greatest privilege of my life. I was asked back in nineteen ninety nine by National Geographic to do a series of articles about a guy, an American ecologist, Mike, Fay who was going to walk two thousand miles across. The Congo basin doing a biological survey when a zigzag path off trail bushwack to to identify what was there? What were the biological hotspots? What were the places that were less crucial? So I spent weeks walking with him. We walked in sandals and river shorts through swamps and jungles and and swam across black lakes. And I read three stories for National Geographic in and I had a wonderful photographic partner. Great. Nick Nichols. Mike Fey was explorer Nick Nichols photographer, and I was the writer great memories of that. The mega transact it was called zone. So the first thing that occurs to me as there's a guy who's who's willing able, he knows that he can survive on a trip like this and he's gonna make this wage and then assigned to other people who may have no experience bushwack ING or surviving out in these kinds of. Conditions for like. Like was that? Was that a thing? Like did you have a lot to learn then or were you already prepared for mission? Well, yeah, it was not. The random choice that they picnic. Nichols photographer me as the writer. They picked us because we were, they hoped the right people for this sort of challenge. We weren't as tougher as crazy as Mike, Fay, but we were close enough approximation that they hoped we could hang with him at least for long sections of this walk. He alone the entire walk, four hundred fifty six days on the trail in the midst of central African forests without a hot shower without sleeping under a roof and doing great work sensing. What was there? And I, I walked for about eight weeks with him, divided into about four stretches, so you know, fifty three fifty fifty three days. I think it was, which is nothing compared to him. Fifty. Three days of wagging through the Congo will we'll give you will give you a sense of of the experience that will give you the flavor of it. I. Feel like I deserve a beer after an afternoon hike..

And he comes out with mash chief, Brian, Keith, and they sit there and they tell us about what, hey, man, we're in the shit. We're going down range and we are doing God's work. They're recruiting because you know how at the end of towards the end of your class, she would do your dream sheet finger on what you wanted. So funny story was I listened to all that, and I was like, that sounds kind of cool. Yeah. Yeah. But on my dream shape, I put one, three, five, and I even put STV team won like I wanted to stay on the west coast and last name Gonzales. You're coming team you. You're going straight over here, dude. And I remember I was complaining that when we got our orders and the instructor Fe, what was Mike, Fay? I remember I was kinda complain. I'll stop ING. I was the only one. So this is what was so funny. I was the only one that went to seal team for my buds glass and for the next three buds classes, I was the only one that went to seal team for no shit. Yeah. So I was a new guy fell, almost you're the new guy was. So funny was my, my roommate was the previous new gay. Oh, man. So he got relieved of that land. Yeah, so I was I was a new guy there. You know, I went through back then was done in house, did it all in house? And I, I remember I got pulled in to the chief of running. S. t. t. super. I mean, the dude had like the thickest, New England accent ever. I mean that guy. I mean, he just bled clam chowder. So his name named Brian and I remember he's like prime bracket. He goes, he goes, hey, you're getting pulled out ST and I about lost it. I thought, oh my God. Yeah, I'm getting fucking kicked out. Fuck what I do. I'm thinking I didn't do anything that everybody else didn't do, you know. And then I start thinking, oh my God. I totally screwed. And he must have seen me just kind of like slowing down, slipped out and he's like, no, no, you're getting pulled out to go into a platoon and getting. Yeah, you're getting ready to go down. So what happened was. Tune that was later to go down and eventually was responsible for all the pre the battlefield prep and stuff. One of the guys broke his arm on a fast rope on the stuff, and so I replaced him. I jumped right in and we literally, I mean, it was a whirlwind tour. I jumped into that platoon and that platoon was stacked. They purposely built apple tune for that mission. And so so did you for for the listeners that don't know two things s. t. t. is seal tactical training, which is the advanced training follow on after you go through buds or original or primary seal school before you go to seal team. But back then and same with even when I was in is that you know, you didn't get your tried your your seal insignia pin awarded to you to to actually become an official seal until you're at the team and you had to go through pro, you know, six months probation and go through chiefs board. Whereas now they hand it to them. The end of the cue to you fucking vehemently disagree with right there with you, but. At any rate, what I'm curious so for you, then how did that? How did that work? Because I know for me, like I graduated GT and then went to the team and had to sit around for six months and go through that whole process. So I got thrown. So I got pulled out to get thrown into the workup to lead up to what we were going to do. So I gotta Fash track through all of that. I still had to go through my chiefs board and my cheese board was stacked with dues. Again, these are all just bucking pipe hitters, old school payers, man, I still have so much respect for these guys..
