We hit the first key is a huge organization here because again your kids involved in the game guess what. They don't have the T it's to get out there and get in trouble Ari grownup here but he woods and give me your effort it. Patrick these are words of wisdom angle pass along to think you need him here in the upstate of South Carolina we have what's called a year agreeable can't sell. Swim association invitational Lee units started in the sixties are right maybe even before that I grew up swimming on the spot he would swim team right here with a morning practice afternoon practice our right guess what we're to forget the higher you go out here in kidney trouble or do anything in. Thursdays were the greatest day of the week because we had swim meets all right. Which you are swimming tickets and other community pulled out a note that here so why you do this now. We go to the convenience store and load up on sugar products and I'm talking boxes of jello the powder into it just trying to get that energy for. Certain the first heat guess what each of the game of golf and also aware of how to where you have to worry about anything. In the future of course we will talk with Michael hi is it for 47. About the about the app first the golf organization at 535. George Bryant's gonna join us he is the owner and operator. Of that George Bryant golf academy damaging Chapin. A thirty year member of the PGA. Also you may know his son Wesley Bryan who has the 2007. Team RBC. Here it's cheap in the honor harbor tail so outside that would get instant book ball oh by the way. Don't upset Popovich guess what you get damaged outside the country and guess what. Your eyes here. Your tact. Acts were hate it's just went up a whole lot polite letter straight it was third two will have a to UW and give him with the city for four GS PE SPN. Open phones and exit. So we're rely a back here at Carolina profit body woods right off of airport road is the interest of the clubhouse about cius here. Ager get off work because. He's in this one track mind Patrick. The beginning of football season is officially here after media days this week you know and then of course the advocates get one week off in the air and you August practice and what story lines everyday. My brains out a full when it comes to immediate days because the reality is it is this stuff long enough of told the story about my first one. I'm right down every little quote from everything and I'll look at Everett this older gentleman a slight yet written the day it's on. On this as long as I have you'll never hear anything new and there's a lot of treatment in we're real proud of our team. And a lot of that I do wanna work over the summer yet. Ought to see at the hotel first of all Bobby Petrino. Is the most solely. Of all the coaches in the ACC. Let's be honest the biggest jerk of the coaches in the ACC but that's it allowed me to go out and dress up as Bobby Petrino for Halloween a couple of years ago with a neck brace and not face all scratched. Unfortunately about why not finding volleyball outfit beware breakers at your member Jessica Terrelle was the volleyball player Arkansas that was on the back of that motorcycle when they crash says. He may Kaman had a couple of good lines today when it comes to set. It is the last time in the you'll see these active coaches sorted this for an you know enemy willing to talk because at some point it's become the CIA you know you gotta. Close the rates and make certain of like funds out. Nine ciento I don't mean this thing is. I've never. Truly understood. The whole. Lower behind media day. Because it again like you said it's kind of the same thing every every time. Well the thing is is what it is today vs what it was thirty years ago it had its place. It still does for that matter what we. You add to growing avenues of radio or sports talk in political talk. Because Spotify and everything it's hurt hurt other areas of the radio business. Date that the fund part of this deal was thirty years ago now I realize some modern day we we can I can eat either. These nice you stick hop on buses. 2530 years ago in drive from campus to campus. When they were talking in the football office or whatnot they were in the bar drinking. So the you know but again. Had a really good conversation I'm gonna hold one interview back that I did yesterday one on one. Is that a more because things right waters okay he a lot of people are listening audience may. Understand. He was the au commissioner of the sun belt he was a former assistant commissioner of the Southern Conference back in the day. So. He is now the head of the football bowl association which means you know there were in the key. The football's the ball games out there and a lot of people now go now that we have a college football playoff do we need the bowl games yes she did. Yes she did number two that they are polling shows. When they go to the athletic directors and presidents of universities 90%. Favorability rating when it comes to if they wanna keep Apple's system says an injury. There's a bull rings also help the good the schools as well because it's basically a free PR Dane know our debt. They have like the lower and schools can just PR their school. And not only that but maybe hey we beat him by good enough margin. Maybe we can see some other recruits Lanier now trying to you know I sold the month TV one day become a Gallagher sciele. Well that's what it is and it's also a bit commercial for the for the city I mean. Montgomery. You know I went to school university Alabama Montgomery hit a hole. You know a lot of my friends who were from Montgomery they used to get out there that actually the capital about it but Montgomery County. This revitalization. Much like dale in Greenville has now when I grow up here Patrick. You can dale to him for anything but married except maybe to go to church. You do not walk down main street they were not a thousand there it's let's be realistic. A 150 restaurants in the detail our employees that you can while they'll make you didn't need that. So guess what everything you like the cyclical. You know we right now one of the biggest things is. They're stoke in from did you hurt me that we interviewed yesterday president its label in the typically kickoff classic. Eighty words the originators and as we said. Yeah imitation is the sincerest form of flattery look all the neutral site match ups this year. They've got a maybe we don't need the bad neutral site they won't go back to do at home and I'm Bayless in neutral site every year this year opening up with global in Orlando. They've now signed home and homes with Notre Dame and it's Penn State no Texas are right. Clips it get ready to announce a three game deal with Georgia one includes some one in Athens who won in the tick fully kickoff classic. Also sales like they're about to announce that there in negotiations and about the pull off a home and home with LSU. So it's much is it neutral site stuff his work that it now seems like. It's cool to go back into the moment and deals as well so yeah everything in life is that cyclical but the immediate days it's also. Here's the thing you do we discussed or right as well about bowl game since the one opportunity to kids that play for our enjoyment get paid. They dance they gets whacked big 400 in fifty dollars. Of swagger as well as some other stuff and Wright was still in me a story of being at one of the where they they welcome to a best buy. With the 450 dollar gift card. It said. You cut him loose in the building here comes a player from one of the schools. He's got six blenders. That's what he bought at best buy six blenders. Okay. Right stop them and asked him why and he said you know this is seek first opportunity in my life I've ever been able to give my family Christmas present. Wow so he was giving six different. Houses are members and his family blenders for Christmas. Stop and think about that one for second you know what I mean so. Because it kind of shows dealing with some of these oboe players they don't. It's not all about them they're trying to work toward higher gold supply and when given an opportunity they're gonna show it. Yep sue again. Is. It eat you gotta stop and think about the other people. As well so again. Where I live here Carolina golf at botany woods when we come back we're not with the first tee. Michael hi is he's the director of the first tee program. Talking about why it's important for them also in a league she works with junior. Female golfers. You know listen. Here Carolina guys not just about your game would like your child into the game well guess what. We'll talk with the the first tee program when we come back is were lied at the clubhouse at Carolina office but he would you get up for swing and here. Find out get some big hits and beverage find out. How you could join this club as well. Our I welcome back give we're live here Carolina office but he woods but we're joined by the our friends at the first diss Michael highest he's director at the first key upstate Italy correct that she played her. College golf that North Greenville University guys did you read talk about facial tattoos or who. You golf here in the upstate I think we'll take the first. 101 of our core values judgment yet might not be it yet. It here yeah. It's a year again we were sort of rep for seeing are admits an LA expressed linebacker one time when it comes to do with every year which will be done these images like talents that. Why the first tee upstate here in Greenville because. And we're so fortunate when it comes to youth golf here in the upstate is evident by yesterday be in the final round at the plate junior golf classic out of the Warren Blake country club which is sort of the masters of South Carolina junior girls. Yeah I was next. Out there on Monday. Helping out with there for a land that they do before the actual apartment starts on Tuesday and finish is on Wednesday it's amazing to see these kids and how if there aren't I was sitting on the nine people on watch them it. You know one of our goals at the first G Hayes. To create better better days. That are citizens but also gave golfers. And so my goal here at first India status is hopefully we'll have a did from the first he. Program. In the coming years competing in that event and and then hopefully winning it because. You know our mission. At the first he is for reformist. The life skills that we need so interpersonal skills goal setting conflict resolution. Because you learn news skills. Easily through the game of golf you know you. So it Matt's lie that causes the one thing I tell my daughter is he too high after a good shot you can get to loads it's orders a way that you can attack every day life and you know it can happen right here we've seen it before you know the hos and Malia and all but. There's a guy from Aiken South Carolina that's leading the British Open that guess what came right through the upstate with the blade and everything else so. Definitely definitely. What's the most fun about this because it's not going out there during a call Meehan let's go do a lesson I mean you guys get out there and the community you. You promote the game of golf into you quite frankly neighborhoods that. Kids never know. Never think about going out to a golf course yes do. We have a lot going on. The first he we have three main programs that we Ron. One. Is our national school program. Eyes that we go and schools in Greenville Spartanburg Cherokee town. We're in every single elementary school in Spartanburg to hear you right now we have seven more ago. Mean Greenville counties overlooked in the for the funding for news. We go to those schools and we need to be teachers to conduct our life skills and golf skills curriculum during. And you know everyone knows it. He's getting cut. Across the state across the country. And this is a program that we can offers unique for decades and you need for the that they can teach. And also. Again layered on with our life skills so our nine core values honesty integrity and sportsmanship. And incidents are mean that's one of our biggest. Programs that we Ron. And and we have the first drive Bertram where we go into view like the kroc center and the Boys and Girls Club in Gaffney. Gains we conduct our program means there at this site so we're not going to Wear it it's our. We're not we've seen seen action in and hopefully they'll come us. Sadat's visit do you mean an outreach programs that we run. And then of course our golf course program. Just like we had a year at pot anyway it's were golf courses like green now and firms and to hear you now. Like sea pines. Carolina's brains will agree within range. They're national rattle a lot of golf courses in the upstate and that's where we see the biggest impact. With harper. In you know in looking through the website the first tee upstate dot org you. It's so close personal very well done but talk about you know it's a different because it's honesty you'd hear you report true LBQ. Claim your and score but.
