The Open continues on TV (and in the UK) so I’ll continue posting golf songs this week (rain or shine). The wind is blowing a little more there today, so a lot of folks are taking a ride on the ‘bogie train’. This song makes making bogies seem not so bad as long as you have some jazzy guitar solos. Of course that’s easy to say when there is no money on the line.
The Open Championship started today so I have golf on the brain. I got to watch it for about two minutes before leaving the house on another journey to the debts of Cobb County. This song is a funny song about having the golf bug so bad that work has become irrelevant. Something I’ll admit to being guilty off at one time (and hopefully another one day) in my life. Thanks for listening!
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!
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.
