It's the HEAVY Boston accent for me.
Last place finisher in your local club's championship should have to recite this speech at the 19th hole. Costumes encouraged.
Uhhh, guys? Guys?! GUYS?!?!?!
EDC MEETS TOP GOLF!!
In what appears to be equal parts, Top Golf, EDC and 10 year old Scott’s fever dream—Indian Wells hosts “Shots in the Night” during the winter season and I’m honestly leaving my house as we speak to take up semi-permanent residence at the resort.
As this alarmingly designed Powerpoint presentation? shows, there are putting competitions, lights shows, glow ball target practice on the range with DJs and food trucks and... I don't care if they show 7 year olds out there or that the YouTube video has a typo in the title, let's f&$#*% party!
Though I will say, I’m really disappointed in you all. Yes, you, the Breakfast Baller community. Because while I’m just now stumbling across this, I feel like one of you has played it before and you've been holding out on me this whole time.
And to make sure this never happens again—I’m linking my actual email here and if you are sitting on something that is BB worthy that you’d like to get off your chest, please just send it to me now. No questions asked. And I promise to go easy on you in the future.

Concession Golf Club
"BRUTAL FOR AVERAGE GOLFERS"
Yes, Golf Digest gleefully titled their Concession profile this week with that gem of a line—warning "average" golfers about how extremely difficult the course is.
Named for Jack Nicklaus conceding a 2 footer to Tony Jacklin, bringing the 1969 Ryder Cup to a draw—Concession Golf Club is hosting the previously named WGC-Mexico event this season—because, COVID.
But I don’t want to talk about how insanely difficult this course is, clocking in at 77.6/155 and bringing my 11 handicap up to a cool 20+.
Instead, I’d love to shine a spotlight on the other courses Concession has. Namely The Gimme, Concession’s 9-hole par 3 course.
I guess it makes sense that a course named after one of the greatest displays of sportsmanship in golf would make a point to provide a welcoming experience for all golfers—but this par 3 course is next level.
With holes designed after St. Andrews’ famous “Road Hole”, the infamous #17 island green from TPC Sawgrass, and Riviera Country Club's #6 with the surprise bunker in the middle of the green—it’s like a one-stop shop to sample some of golf’s most famous holes.
Plus, doing its name justice, each flagstick has a 2 foot mark on it and course rules is anything within the mark is a gimme.
This Week on BBTV
BATTLE OF THE BRO(THER)S
This week, two of BBTV's finest meet at Oak Quarry for a Battle of the Brothers.
"This is what it's all about" says brilliantlydumb
"Who the f&%$ wakes up three hours before tee time!?" says e.d.w.a.r.d.c.a.s.s.
And emharris83 even said, "@floridaman462 is this what it’s like when you go?"
Truly, a can't miss ep.

BADDEST BIRDIE OF THE WEEK
@g_r_moore understood that what makes a champion isn't preparation, determination or even skill... it's a fly AF, Breezy McBreeze polo.
Oh, look, we even have one in your size...
BAD BIRDIE IN-VEST-MENT ADVICE
Gamestop and AMC were all well and good but the greatest investment you can make is in yourself...
With these FLY AF vests that pack up into less space than all those busted up Rock Flites you've got rolling around at the bottom of the bag.
