New Golf Songs written by Chris Cates for 365 Songs for 2010.

May 21th “Texas Wedge”

I’m playing in a golf tournament starting today in Clayton, Georgia, so I figured it was time to do another golf song.   “Texas Wedge” has been brewing for a while.  When I play in the dogfight at Quaker Meadows Golf Course, I always witness lots of Texas Wedging both by my teammates and myself.    It’s the kind of course where you can do that which is always an adjustment for me since I predominately play “mountain golf”.

For non-golfers, ‘Texas Wedge’ is what you call your putter when you putt from off the green instead of chipping it.   I’ve known some masters of the Texas Wedge (and still do).  Some folks can putt from thirty yards away and have a good chance of making it.     Thanks for listening!

April 8 “Tiger’s Back”

It’s Masters weekend again!!  Probably one of my top three sporting events behind the NBA Finals and the British Open.

Of course this is Tiger’s big week back and that’s all anybody can talk about.  I’m glad he’s back.   He obviously looks like he’s ready to kick some butt.   I’m not going to get into all of his stuff but it’s also good for people to remember that he’s not the only one out there doing what he did.   It would be cool to see him win but the Masters is great because it’s a good story, no matter who wins.

If Tom Watson would pull this one out.  That would be the greatest sports moment ever.

Anyway “Tiger’s Back” is kind of a synopsis of the first day’s events at the tournament and about how Tiger’s gonna be gunning for the win.

March 15 “Golfin’ Machine”

I was going to wait another month or two before I started writing golf songs but this one just kind of came out.  I was stepping into my back yard to hit some balls this afternoon and this came to me.

My rock n’ roll Golf comedy CD “Triple Bogey with 17 Holes to Play” is by far my biggest selling album and is an infinite source for perks, tournaments and gigs in the golf industry.   I put it out about four years ago with intentions of writing more golf songs and now I have the perfect format to release them.

I was probably inspired by the newsletter from the Carolina Golf Reporters Association that I was reading right before I went outside.   Then after completing the song I noticed Tiger was coming back at the Masters.   If I would have read that beforehand this song would’ve probably been about Tiger.   I think you’ll definitely see one of those in the future however.
