I wanted to write this as a thank you to the NLU boys for what they have done to grow my love of the game of golf. As I feel many others have been similarly impacted by the “work” they have done I did not want to make this private so that others could share their stories of how NLU has impacted their love of the game of golf.
When I started seriously playing the game of golf a few years ago I felt like I was alone. I felt like the way that I looked at the game of golf was very different from the way that the few other people that I knew that played approached the game. Very quickly I became obsessed with learning about courses I was playing and discovering what about particular courses/holes made me enjoy playing them.
From their videos on YT with guests like Zach Blair and podcast episodes with guests like Andy Johnson I learned a new way to appreciate the game. I learned a new way of looking at the golf hole in front of me and rather than just pull out a driver and rip it observe the hole, think of all my options, and at times as off brand as it might be lay up. Learning how to look at a golf hole differently and play the same course over and over (Audubon Park Golf Course) while playing it differently every time has been one of the most fun things to learn; and I thank the NLU boys for their part in that.
When I found the NLU Podcast & YouTube channel (I watched S1 of Tourist Sauce in 1 day) I felt like I found a group of buddies who looked at golf the same way that I did. Knowing that I am merely one of the many thousands of people that follow the fellas wherever they go and with whatever they do I feel like they have a way of connecting with their community unlike many other social celbs who fail to do so.
In conclusion, keep it up fellas and I look forward to continuing to follow y’all’s journey.
