    Hahaha I need to party... I mean golf with Luke at some point, I hear it is legendary with bombs off the tee and flip wedges. That is one awesome post. Its even more awesome with the Odyssey Experience taking place this weekend as I'm sure some of this banter will carry over into that.

    Sorry, I just spit my coffee out all over my keyboard and monitor and had to clean it up. I love you Clayton and will certainly listen to this interview when I have a few minutes available, but I feel I need to address this little nugget that JB has called out here. One of the greatest things about The Grandaddy is all of the hyperbole surrounding it, it starts with the contests to get into the event, continues in the run up to the event, then throughout the event, into the post event recaps and for the years following in perpetuity. Everything from the trip out to Carlsbad, to the fittings, the clubs, the swag, the bus ride to the desert, Al and his house, The Hideaway, the comfort stations, breakfast sliders, The Nest... it all gets talked about in the most glowing terms and the fact is that even with all of this hyperbole those that get to come are never disappointed, it ALWAYS lives up to the hype.

    That being said I fear comparing Sean to Fred Couples may be taking that hyperbole a bit to far and I don't want this year's participants to be the first ever to be let down. Sean is a great guy, no doubt, he has a ton of knowledge about golf and the industry, he has endless energy, a great sense of humor and is certainly fun to work with and play golf with (he's also my boss). Those of you that will be coming out for The Grandaddy will certainly enjoy getting to meet and spend time with Sean. However, he isn't often (or ever) mistaken for Fred Couples. So for those of you that haven't met Sean let me share with you the things he has in common with Freddie.

    They are both men, one of them wears women's colors, but they are both men.
    They were both born in 1959.
    They both play golf.

    That's it, that's the list.

    I just think it's important for the sake of the 2019 participants, and for Sean frankly, that we set expectations appropriately.

    Looking forward to December.
    Hahahaha! And this is why Luke is the funniest guy you'll meet in December! Miss you my friend.

    Incredible memories. I can't wait to see how things take shape in December... especially after the Odyssey event this weekend!





    I've gotta say, at the heart of it all stands one man...and we're extremely grateful for him. 12 guys will soon find out why.

    Ever since I've gotten involved here on THP I've struggled to determine what the best part of it is. I think I know now, it's not the events, it's not the giveaways, it's not the testing opportunities. It is the community, camaraderie, and general sense of family that emanates from all of the members. And the Grandaddy entries have just solidified that opinion. No matter what the final team looks like, I'm sure THP will be excellently represented by a diverse and tightknit team. Thanks for allowing all of us to watch this group take the trip of a lifetime!
