Chasing Scratch (the Podcast)

@iacas thank you so much for the commentary here. I really enjoy the podcast, fwiw, because they're tilting at windmills, which they do with a bit of charisma and a good mix of humour/seriousness. But having got to the end of the last season, and then reading through this thread, your 'commentary' on it made it even more enjoyable. Thanks, made me smile a lot, I hope you keep it going.

Thanks. I think they have the talent to get to scratch, but their planning and methodology is really bad.

They outed their names so now we can track them on GHIN, too.

I think that's the chaos and fun of it. I think then it's more than they're tilting at windmills, that they possibly could, and aren't, is part of the fun. I think if they just approached it methodically and logically they'd get there and I wouldn't enjoy it.

I don't think it's fun.

I know, and I'm cool with that. I can see why you'd find it excruciating.

Mike and Eli set a goal to get to a scratch handicap in one year and documented their progress — along with all the twists and turns.

They’re 5.7 and 4.7 right now.

They got to 3.6 at one point in year two I think.

I listen to a lot of golf podcasts but for some reason I have never really gotten into this one. It's really blown up but I've never gotten hooked. I would have thought that I would.I Have No Idea Shrug GIF

You're too old, perhaps?

It's definitely targeted at about people within ± 5 years or so of them.
