    Universal Banter with Troch

    Universal Banter with Troch

    We’re back this week on Chasin’ Birdies with an atypical approach to our episode. We have a guest joining us in our banter while we discuss all things golf. Vincent Trocheck (NY Rangers) sits down with us and breaks down the U.S. Open as well as other topics trending in golf. 
    We dive into Bryson’s epic win at Pinehurst No.2 and recap the battle between him and Rory. Not that our thoughts matter, but we are fans of Bryson. We talk about his role on and off the course and how he can be the leader to mend the divide in golf.
    We get into Troch’s quick trip to Fisher’s Island and discuss the course as well as other trendy clubs in NY. We hear about his Member-Guest tournament coming up, which is at Winged Foot…not a big deal. 
    We turn the episode over to some other banter and talk about some current golf topics, like highlighting the Allegheny Member-Guest, Pepe’s injury, and Neal Shipley turning pro. This banter is exactly that…a banter. Tune in, share, like, dislike, but as always, we appreciate the listen.

    Broken Bones & Other Things

    Broken Bones & Other Things

    June golf is underway. Summer is here and pools are full of kids. Most of us will be golfing, and some of us are on a hiatus from golf until late summer. One of us…being Pepe. 
    We open up the episode and hear about the broken fibula that took place during a heated game of whiffle ball….yes, that’s correct. Pepe gives us a look into his injury and how he’s trying to cope with not being on the course. From the sounds of things, he’s feeling pretty optimistic.
    We turn the talk over to golf and dissect this past week’s Memorial Tournament where Scottie Scheffler, um, won again. Surprising? No. We love seeing him win…but is golf  becoming too predictable? Hopping over to the LIV Tour we chat about their recent run in Houston and the outcome of that event.
    Our attention turns to the U.S Open which kicks off today at Pinehurst No.2. Who we pick, can you load up on Scottie, will Tiger make the cut, and the havoc this course can create are all discussed. Also, we take a look at the BMW PRO-AM that just took place and three pasts guests on Chasin’ Birdies were in the field. How did they fare? We don’t know, either.  
    We end the episode with some banter and decide we’ll be back next week for a new episode (with a guest). Tune in, share, and enjoy the Father’s Day Weekend…or the U.S Open..your pick.

    Bases to Brilliance - Travis Snider

    Bases to Brilliance - Travis Snider

    We all know how today’s world operates with respect to the youth. More pressure on social media, more pressure to perform, and more pressure on themselves to be better athletes. How do we, as adults, steer these children on the right track?
    Travis Snider, former MLB, joins us to discuss the movement he’s behind with 3A Athletics. Having a past of his own has allowed him to understand what the right way to go about youth development is all about. We open up the episode and get into his background and playing career. We talk a bit about his professional career and how he shifted mentally after he retired.
    We dive into his development and mentoring for the youth. We get into the beginning stages of 3A Athletics and what the purpose of this organization is.
    We turn over to some golf talk and hear about his passion and love for golf, even after he injured himself on the course. We then turn the episode over to our standard Tap-In segment, where we ask him four questions that demand his quick-witted response. Tune in now for an episode that will shed light on some topics you may not be too familiar with!

    Spring Banter - Pepe x BASH

    Spring Banter - Pepe x BASH

    Banter sessions are a part of our DNA. We’re back this week with another one of just us two yuckin’ it up. 
    We open up and discuss the recent quick trip up to State College, PA to see our boy Mitchell Tenpenny. To sum it up, we ended up in a 5 v 5 basketball game with Pepe leaving with a bone bruise to the knee. For some reason, this is actually funny.
    We turn the episode over and dive into some recent golf talk. We’re headed to Crooked Stick in Indy then rounding out the trip with Troubadour and Old Hickory in Nashville. 
    The episode turns over to some golf talk. We get into some recent rounds we played and talk a little about course management. We hit on the Pete Dye Member Guest and discussed our return after a year off. The Sunnehanna 4 Ball event is a top notch amateur event, which will include us two in the field this year. 
    We round out the episode with some typical banter from the two of us to keep it fresh. Tune in to this lighthearted interview and get yourself a few free laughs. As always, thanks for listening!

    X’s & O’s - Garrett Greene and Nicco Marchiol

    X’s & O’s - Garrett Greene and Nicco Marchiol

    This week on Chasin’ Birdies, we aren’t taking any X- Outs. Instead, we’re sitting in with two college quarterbacks to hear from them about life, sports, and the pursuit of birdies.
    We open up the episode and dive into the background of both Garrett and Nicco. We talk about upbringing and why they both chose WV for their football careers. After talking about some games and the 2023 season, we jump over to some golf talk to tie it all together.
    It’s clear from the conversation they both are slightly addicted to golf..when they of course have time. We talk about the PGA Tour and LIV golf and get into some course talk. 
    We round out the episode with our standard tap-in segment where each are asked questions that demand their quick witted response. Tune in now and let the easy listening begin. We know you’ll enjoy this one. Also - check out the full video on our YouTube channel.

    More Than Legendary - Lee Trevino

    More Than Legendary - Lee Trevino

    Every episode on Chasin’ Birdies serves a different purpose. The one constant, though, remains the same and that’s our love for the game and pursuit of the chase. Today’s episode is no different. Lee Trevino sits down with us and gives us a look inside his career and golf as a whole from his vantage point.
    The episode opens up with us having light banter with Lee. He gives us a glimpse of his early life before golf was even a thought. He tells the story of caddying and being around golf, but it wasn’t until after the Marines that he felt he had the game to compete professionally. 
    Lee takes us on a ride with a story about his first tournament, which he won. A 6x major champion, Lee tells us about his 1971 season, where he won the US Open, Canadian Open, and The Open Championship consecutively. He shares some insight early on with swing mechanics and how technology wasn’t available at the time to dissect the game like it is today.
    We get into some stories about playing in the Ryder Cup with Arnold Palmer as the Captain. Jack Nicklaus, Sam Snead and Mo Norman stories, too. Sitting with a legend and hearing these stories don’t happen often. At the end of the day, we’re all still chasin’.
    We round out the episode with Lee telling us about his daily routine at home and his new clothing venture with his son, Daniel. Although he doesn’t play much golf, he still hangs at the course every day. We finish up with our standard Tap-In Segment, where Lee is asked 4 questions that demand his response. Tune in, share, and enjoy. We know you’ll love this one.
