Brian Friend (00:01):


Sevan Matossian (00:02):

Bam. We’re live. Caleb, do I use the or is that only for my show or for this show too? No, no, no. Okay. I didn’t think so. No. Thongs.

Brian Friend (00:14):

I feel like we should have a, a specific one for the Disc golf show. It’s just like the Postproduction companies have

Sevan Matossian (00:19):


Brian Friend (00:20):

Do you like those little intro musics?

Sevan Matossian (00:22):

Uh, um,

Brian Friend (00:24):

Yeah. You skip

Sevan Matossian (00:25):

Through them, don’t you? Yeah, yeah. Yeah. They’re cheesy. No, I don’t skip through anything, but I watch it at like one in a qu I’ve been watching at one in a quarter time.

Brian Friend (00:33):


Sevan Matossian (00:34):

And I wish I could, I wish I could keep the time code up the entire time I watch it on YouTube. Oh, I wonder if there’s a setting in YouTube where I can do that on the tv.

Brian Friend (00:46):

I dunno.

Sevan Matossian (00:47):

Does anyone know Brian Friend Caleb Beaver on the back end? This is our fourth golf show. And they’re going, as they say, old people say swimmingly. Well, Elizabeth, Jeremy three, they are fine. It’s a great podcast. I don’t know who you’re talking to, but, okay. Uh, Yash. Good to see you. Bruce. Wayne agreed to Elizabeth. What are you guys talking about?

Brian Friend (01:07):

Sevan Matossian (01:09):

Oh, they do? Mm-hmm. <affirmative>? Uh, they’re fine. It’s a great pod. Oh, cuz uh, Brian hung up the other day when I called ’em during the live show. Did we talk about that?

Brian Friend (01:21):

What do you mean?

Sevan Matossian (01:23):

Like, if you said, we haven’t talked about that. I called you and I said, Hey, what’s up? You said, Hey. I said, Hey, I’m live. I’m wondering if we’re doing the golf show and you said, are we really live? And I said, yeah. And then it was like, click

Brian Friend (01:34):

And then you left

Sevan Matossian (01:36):

<laugh>. Yeah. Then we probably, we partied. I I did. First slide. Six second. Think. Oh my God. Is he, was he sleeping

Brian Friend (01:44):

<laugh>? We did talk about it. Remember you called me and you’re like, oh my God, that was amazing when you hung up on me on the show the other day.

Sevan Matossian (01:50):

Oh, yes, yes, yes. My favorite part. J uh, Hein absolutely crushed it. Easy buddy. Easy. He did. Okay, let’s not ruin it. Let’s not ruin it. Let’s not ruin it. But I appreciate your passion, uh, Mr. Walters, I heard you loud and clear. Yes. Guests, uh, Mike Hawk, Kenny Walters. Again, Jeremy, I hope you’re wrong. As Brian makes a lot of great shows. I think they both realized that they’re very important to each other. Brian’s athlete connections and seven Oh people. You guys really do think we’re fighting.


No, not, not in the even the slightest. Not even a, not even a speed bump. But I appreciate the, if it adds to the interest in the show, we can, um, we can, um, shake it up a little bit. I’m here for Brian. Thank you Audrey. Uh, is this the, uh, Frisbee stuff again? Tez Paul Scanlan. Good evening folks. Uh, you guys, there is a guy that you’re gonna see today. Chris Clem Clemens. This guy’s fucking the stereotypical Frisbee player. You guys are gonna appreciate him. Full blown the long hair. He could be in a Will Ferrell movie. They need to do a Frisbee movie, right. Will Ferrell to do a right. Those comedian guys, don’t you think Will far? That actually is pretty good. Yeah. Bill Murray. Like they need to do a

Brian Friend (03:08):

<laugh>. Yeah. Something like where they do the ice skating. They did the, like a b basketball one. They could definitely do one for disco golf. It would be amazing. <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (03:15):

Oh, here we go. Here’s the drama. Uh, Ken Walters a great ghost song. Yesterday’s podcast. Brian hung up on se when he called to ask him a question. And on the quarters recap show, Brian popped right after the podcast. Oh, yes. Double tension with Lander.

Brian Friend (03:30):

T Lander,

Sevan Matossian (03:31):

Uh, tea Lander, uh, came here to get hydrated by Seon. Oh, that’s cool. That’s sweet. Hmm. Uh, Jonathan Ortega the guy with the best profile picture in the game. I feel Brian is the type of guy, uh, to not halfass anything. He only full has full sasses all things. Yeah. <laugh>, I had the exact same question again today. Someone goes, why are you doing the um, uh, Frisbee show? I go because cuz Brian’s full to fool into it. And I’m, I just wanna do anything that anyone’s fully into, uh, Greg Ghost. The best two in the business. Well, thank you. Is that a girl? Would’ve thought the Gray Ghost was a girl? That’s like a boy’s name, right?

Brian Friend (04:04):

The gray lady is a girl. It’s a ghost from Harry Potter.

Sevan Matossian (04:08):

It is.

Brian Friend (04:09):


Sevan Matossian (04:11):

Um, uh, I need more drama. Uh, pretend you’re angry at each other. All right. Well, I can call him again and he can hang up again. We can keep it going. Uh, Trevor Merchant Canadian, $11. This thumbnail is amazing. I haven’t seen it. <laugh>. Have you seen it? Is it a Bruce Wayne Epic?

Brian Friend (04:30):

Uh, I don’t know what it’s from, but it’s pretty good.

Sevan Matossian (04:34):

Uh, Jetro Cardona hit the, like nerds. Uh, disc golf is fun and interesting. <laugh> asshole. Wow. That’s Pat Barber?

Brian Friend (04:46):

No, it’s from The Hangover.

Sevan Matossian (04:48):

Oh, is that me and the, that’s Brian and I’m in the, um, little baby’s outfit.

Brian Friend (04:53):


Sevan Matossian (04:54):

Yes. Oh my God. Well, at least I got a little SevOnes disc golf show and there’s a, uh, a Frisbee, the SevOne podcast on it. Oh my goodness. I’d let you carry me around like that. Brian, I’d put you through a few baseline strength tests and I jump right in.

Brian Friend (05:10):

Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, it’s 30 Ring Muscles for Time. One of them.

Sevan Matossian (05:13):

Yeah. How’d you do that? Two sets of 15?

Brian Friend (05:15):

No. Oh, I did 15 sets of two.

Sevan Matossian (05:18):

Oh, nice. Okay. Hey, what about the, that other question I asked you in that thread. Can I bring that up or is that for a different show?

Brian Friend (05:26):

Just ask it.

Sevan Matossian (05:28):

Okay. There, there were three errors in regards to, uh, Becca Voigt. Where was that posted? Yeah. How could there be three errors about someone who’s been in the games 15 times?

Brian Friend (05:40):

Um, I guess for the same reason that there’s been errors on the CrossFit Games, Instagram page, emails of the day and news things that go out to athletes and community for the entire year.

Sevan Matossian (05:53):

The, the weights used, um, at 20, at 23.1. Wow. That was pr that was pretty crazy. Um, just so you guys know, I’ll, I’ll fill you in here so it’s not just a complete, um, I took a screenshot of it. These were the, these were the air, uh, Rebecca Voigt, they said she qualified 14 times. She’d qualified 15 times. They said she had, uh, she has two event wins, not just one event win. Like they, they said, and she’s put four times, uh, not three as a Master’s athlete. Those were all things that, uh, Brian had to correct. And you don’t even work for them. They don’t pay you or nothing. Right.

Brian Friend (06:30):

Uh, for the games every year they pay me a little bit

Sevan Matossian (06:33):

Oh, oh. To come there and just hang out, take out, not

Brian Friend (06:35):

Last year I guess, but the other years. Yeah. Yeah,

Sevan Matossian (06:38):

Dude. It’s crazy. It’s crazy. Well, it’s nice of you to do that free work for them to send ’em that information. Very nice of you. We’re lucky to have you round two Part One. Oh shit. I didn’t even write the name of the course.

Brian Friend (06:56):

It’s a brand new course. Never been played before.

Sevan Matossian (06:59):


Brian Friend (07:00):

True. Never seen before. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (07:01):

Wasn’t that last week also?

Brian Friend (07:04):

Uh, I think so, yes. But the courses were extremely different.

Sevan Matossian (07:09):

Uh, 12 Daily Dose. Do 12. 12 Daily Dose of stuff. 49 99. Thank you. Wow. Hold on, Brian, let’s make some money. Stoked to learn about Disc golf. Thanks for letting me back. Savvy baby. Yeah. I’m sorry that she got booted. There’s very, there’s very few Real, there’s, we just don’t, I think we don’t, we don’t. There’s only, we we don’t, there’s only one thing we really don’t tolerate. I you couldn’t possibly have done it in the chat, so I’m not sure. But welcome back. Okay. Uh, so how do you, wasn’t last week’s course a, um, look at Spiegel’s not Happy

Brian Friend (07:46):


Sevan Matossian (07:48):

Uh, wasn’t, um, last week’s course also the first time that course had been played?

Brian Friend (07:52):

Yeah. Yep.

Sevan Matossian (07:54):

And interesting. Two weeks in a row and j just gimme sort of a thing real quick. So this, the first three, um, shows we covered first three weeks, we covered those were all part of some point system that goes to some championship, but this one we’re covering today is not part of that.

Brian Friend (08:12):

Yes and no. Okay. So it has a different name or it’s under the different umbrella. So the first three we covered were all, what they would say are stops on the PD G A disc golf tour. Okay. Of which there are 16 of those. And those are just like your baseline, uh, tournaments. There are these, this is the first Silver Series event. There are still points available in the Silver Series event that contribute to the, the year round, the year long points totals that you’d need to qualify for the tour championships. But they’re half as meant. So if you, if you usually get a hundred for winning a tournament, you only get 50 for winning this tournament. So they still contribute, but half as many points, there’s not as many of them throughout the year. I think there’s five, six maybe. And then in a few in a month or so, we’ll come up the first major and the major are worth one and a half to as many points. So in that example, you would get 150 points if you want.

Sevan Matossian (09:07):

Uh, um, let me ask you this real quick. Sorry. And I know you answered this, I heard you say it is part of the 16, but is it part of the 16?

Brian Friend (09:15):

No, this is not. So

Sevan Matossian (09:16):

I did hear it wrong. Okay. I’ve gotta clarify. It’s not part of one of the 16. Correct. But it, it, how many of these other events are there that contribute points but aren’t part of the 16? Is it half as many points? I thought I heard the guy say that is a regular

Brian Friend (09:29):

One half as many. So yeah, there’s, there’s 16 and they culminate in the Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship. That’s the 16th one of the Pro tour stops that will be in OC on in, in middle of October. There

Sevan Matossian (09:43):

Are Is that la is that championship number 16? Are there 15 that lead to the 16th? Yeah. Okay. And is that one worth points or does you just have to win that one?

Brian Friend (09:52):

You have to have enough points to qualify for that. Okay. And then once you get in, the format for that tournament is different than any of the other tournaments. Um, and there are three, there are three Silver or four Silver Series events also throughout the year. So there’s really, there’s 19, well, and there’s three, four majors. So there’s actually 23 points earning potentials before the 24th tournament with the, which is the Tour Championship.

Sevan Matossian (10:16):

Okay. Okay. So there’s 16 of these and then there’s another, uh, eight.

Brian Friend (10:22):

Yeah, I could, I mean we could put a, we could put a, a graphic if you want to see it, what it looks like.

Sevan Matossian (10:27):

Sure. And then how, how and how much

Brian Friend (10:30):

Is share with you a document right now called, uh, it’s the Fantasy Disk Golf League. But if you just go to the tournaments tab, we can see exactly what he’s asking.

Sevan Matossian (10:37):

Are you sending that to is Caleb on that?

Brian Friend (10:39):

I’m sending it to Caleb, yeah.

Sevan Matossian (10:41):

Okay. So there’s 16 of these. How much are these 16 worth each? And then, and then how much is this Silver one?

Brian Friend (10:48):

Uh, well, if you win the, the regular ones are a hundred hundreds of maximum points you can earn. But then points Tapere down from there

Sevan Matossian (10:56):

And this one, the max you can earn is FI 50

Brian Friend (10:58):

50. And it’s, they tapere down from there.

Sevan Matossian (10:59):

Yeah. Okay. Okay, cool. Alright. Alright. And it was a different production company that, uh, I had never seen before that produced this one.

Brian Friend (11:07):

Yeah, so the big, like the big production company is Joe, me Pro and Gatekeeper Media will be at all of the, the, the big stops. But for these smaller events, there’s some, there are a lot of other, um, post-production companies that cover disc golf. Actually, if you scroll, like search around on YouTube, this one’s called Central Coast Disc Golf. They’ve, you know, also been for a while’s your email address. Um,

Sevan Matossian (11:33):

Uh, just so you know, uh, for anyone who’s, uh, watching from these production companies of these golf shows, if you are watching this, uh, central Coast disk used as shot that I haven’t seen in any of the other events that I’ve watched, um, in the previous three weeks. And it’s a wide shot of a guy on the T and it shows about a complete three or 400 yards and, or sorry, three or 400 feet. And with that wide shot is the first time I ever got a perspective of really how far these guys are throwing it. It’s a, it’s a really wide shot. The guy looks like an ant and then you see the disc go up in the air. And then when you see that, you’re like, oh, shit. And just so you know, one of the commentators said something in this podcast, or sorry, in this TV show covering the golf that you should all recognize, well, at least it really impacted me, just the distance that they’re throwing these, these guys were saying could be an Olympic event. Meaning even if you didn’t have do golf, even if you didn’t have ’em going towards a basket, if you just line these guys up and just had ’em throw it as far as they could, people would be blown away. And when I saw these wide shot and I can really throw a Frisbee far, but when, when they were showing these wide shots, it was crazy. It was absolutely bonkers.

Brian Friend (12:47):

I, like I’ve told you before, I have not been to a pro disc golf tournament, but everyone I know who has been says the same two things, you cannot believe how far they throw it. And you cannot believe how hard they put it. They, they put it into the basket.

Sevan Matossian (13:01):

Right. It it doesn’t translate to tv.

Brian Friend (13:04):

Yeah. I mean, you like, you can watch and be like, oh, that’s looked like it hit the chains hard. Oh man. 550 feet. But until you see someone throw a disc that’s flying in the air. 550 feet all. Sorry, Cal, I don’t know what to tell you then. All good. We’ll get it next time.

Sevan Matossian (13:19):

Uh, are herpes. Yeah. Yeah. Let’s not blow our load this time. Caleb, let’s save something for episode five Are herpes free since 2003. 4 99. Alright, Brian, Mr. Friend, you’re such an expert at fr I think he means Frisbee golf. Tell me the definitions of these three terms. Buttery, Richard, get skinny. What the fuck is that?

Brian Friend (13:44):

I think it would’ve been helpful to have commas where there’s supposed to be a, but I’m guessing that buttery means smooth, Richard, I have no idea. And getting skinny probably means that you’re like threading on a needle through a little tight line of trees.

Sevan Matossian (13:55):

There you go. Uh, uh, 12 daily doses. How far do they throw? A hundred? No, they’re throwing 200 yards. There’s a, you’ll see a shot today where a guy throws it 605 feet. It’s, it’s, uh, and listen, I can

Brian Friend (14:08):

Throw it about a hundred yards

Sevan Matossian (14:09):

They throw. I was gonna say, yeah. In my hay. I don’t know about a Frisbee golf, but my heyday, I could throw just a regular Frisbee from end zone to end zone at a football field. And it was crazy people, it would blow people’s minds that I could do that. And, uh, two of those, I I, I kind of, I I kind of need to see it in person. I know. It’s insane.

Brian Friend (14:27):

Well, there’s one right in there in Santa Cruz. You can go to it.

Sevan Matossian (14:32):

Oh, uh, tournament. Yeah. Oh, when is that? What’s the date on that?

Brian Friend (14:36):

Uh, I have to check.

Sevan Matossian (14:37):

Definitely going. Oh. Was sitting in the park today on a bench

Brian Friend (14:45):


Sevan Matossian (14:46):

From, and watching my kids skate like at a hundred feet away. It’s a, it’s a weird skate park. It’s basically, it’s a big park, but it’s not a skate park. It’s like one of the oldest skate parks in the world. It’s called Derby. I dunno if you wanna bring it up, Caleb, you don’t have to, but it’s a trip. Oh. Master Series. Santa Cruz Master’s Cup presented by Anova disk. Mm-hmm. <affirmative> May 13th to the 15th.

Brian Friend (15:08):

Yep. Oh, it’s a Silver Series event as well. There

Sevan Matossian (15:10):

You go. Oh, I should, oh, well, let’s read out to Matt. Let, uh, let’s, I’m gonna write that guy’s name down and look him up on Instagram and try to get him on to promote.

Brian Friend (15:18):

Maybe I should come out there for that one. We’ll go cover it from the course.

Sevan Matossian (15:21):

Oh, that would be crazy. That would be awesome. Okay, so, uh, I’m sitting on this park bench and I’m, I’m looking at this like just piece of concrete that flows through the grass and it’s a, it’s a, it’s a crazy old school, um, skate spot. And a cop walks up to me and, and I, I look homeless as fuck. Like, I look like this and I’m on the phone with Hailey and I said, Hey. And he doesn’t know. Yeah. That’s it right there. And I’m sitting on a bench that’s, uh, that, that way probably like a hundred feet, 200 feet.


And the cop walks up to me and I’m on the phone with Hailey and I say to him, I say to Hailey, I’m like, Hey, uh, I’m leaving now. And the cop thinks I’m saying that to him, Hey, I’m leaving now. And he goes, you don’t have to, you’re fine, you’re fine. Sev. I’m like, oh, what? And I was like, I wasn’t talking to you. And he’s like, oh, oh. He thought <laugh>. I’m like, I was talking to my wife as he walked up. He’s like, oh. I’m like, how do you know my name? He’s like, dude, huge fan of the podcast.

Brian Friend (16:26):


Sevan Matossian (16:27):

Like, cool, alright, good to go.

Brian Friend (16:31):

He’s like, I’m listening to it right now.

Sevan Matossian (16:33):

That would’ve been great. Hey, I’m getting arrested again. Okay. Uh, what’s the name of the course, Brian, that we’re at? It’s, it’s a shame. I didn’t, I’m, I don’t have that.

Brian Friend (16:44):

It’s a, it’s a strange name for the course, but, uh, I can’t even remember what they called it. Like the, oh

Sevan Matossian (16:50):


Brian Friend (16:51):

Well, the title of the, honestly, the, the title of this tournament was pretty dumb. It was so long. It was like the 28th annual in of a open at, uh, Texas State Championships. But the course named Brock Park, that’s the word. I couldn’t think of a new course. Brock Park.

Sevan Matossian (17:04):

Okay. Brock Park. And it’s a, it’s a, is this the, was it an old public golf course? Is that what it is? It’s an old public golf course.

Brian Friend (17:11):

Yeah. And they, and they just built a disc golf course on it. And they actually built two, two disc golf courses. Uh, one for the men and one for the women. So women played mostly different holes than the guys.

Sevan Matossian (17:21):

Is that normal?

Brian Friend (17:23):

They usually have the same baskets or, or tea pads and sometimes both. But often, you know, there’s, um, maybe you’ll have the same hole, but the men is a par three and the women’s a par four. Or you’ll have two tea pads along and a short, and the men will play from the long and the women will play from a short or two baskets and the men will play to the long and the women will play to the short.

Sevan Matossian (17:41):

Hey, is there, is there, is there a common distance? Like, uh, 85% of the length of the field or something like they, or they, they’d remove 15% of the distance. So if it’s a thousand foot, um, men’s course, they make it eight 50 for the women. And then just keep the par the same. Eight 50, par five.

Brian Friend (17:57):

Uh, not, no, not necess. Not, not, not a uniform number. No.

Sevan Matossian (18:01):

Uh, and then we get into the, uh, we’re you’re gonna do a whole show on that later. Mooney, what is a woman? But to totally fair question.

Brian Friend (18:09):

Okay. Yeah. So the men’s are the blue, the women’s are the pink. And this property is crazy massive. Like that bridge in the middle I think is like 350 feet long.

Sevan Matossian (18:22):

Yeah. They set up some beautiful shots with that bridge in there. Lot of people at the event, like 400 people.

Brian Friend (18:28):

Yeah. Look well attending. And you can see here, like, there’s some really long holes. This is a bombers course. You gotta be able to throw it far, but they put up outer bounds everywhere. So you also have to be accurate.

Sevan Matossian (18:40):

Okay guys, as you know, all of these events by now, you’ve probably figured out they are three rounds, meaning all the players, uh, always

Brian Friend (18:47):

Three rounds. Just the, the ones we’ve been doing recently are,

Sevan Matossian (18:50):

Okay, take, take two. As you guys know, all the events we’ve been covering up to this point of in three rounds, this one is no different.

Brian Friend (18:56):

Actually, the first one we did was four rounds.

Sevan Matossian (18:57):

Ah, son of a bitch. Okay guys, listen, this event is three rounds. And three rounds means that all the players will play 18 holes. And they play, they, they all play the 18 holes in groups of four and then they rest. And then they play all the holes in groups of four, uh, 18 holes. And they rest. And then they have the final day. And each of those days is called, uh, round one, round two, and round three. And it’s on three separate days. Uh, uh, they play the front nine and then the back nine. So it’s holes one through nine and then holes 10 through 18. So we’re going to start and skip straight up to day two, like we have every time. Yeah. Is that part true?

Brian Friend (19:31):

Yeah. Uh, day one was pretty cold day, uh, some wind and, uh, you know, we’ll see the guy, the, the four guys we’re gonna watch an hour. The four guys that shot the best on that day.

Sevan Matossian (19:46):

And, uh, humidity was day two was a perfect day as opposed to the first day that Brian was talking about being a cold day. Uh, humidity. Not a factor. A perfect day for golf. And we start on hole one. Uh, Brian is the king of extortion. Don’t mess, mess with his airtime again. Savon. I dunno what that means, but, okay.

Brian Friend (20:07):


Sevan Matossian (20:09):


Brian Friend (20:09):

Extra sloppy question. They don’t do staggered starts. No, it’s not like a shotgun starts. So a lot of times the course designers have a specific, it’s like the course is telling a story. So they want you to start at a certain point, go through a stretch of holes and end at a certain point. So everyone starts at one and finishes at 18. The tee times start early in the morning. The women almost always play first and start between seven or 8:00 AM and the men usually finish when basically close to sunset. And this or the, a round of the tournament usually lasts all day from the first women’s group that tees off to the last men’s group that finishes.

Sevan Matossian (20:43):

And is this last card always, does it always go last?

Brian Friend (20:46):

Yeah. The, the best guys featured card or the lead card always goes last, yes. For the men.

Sevan Matossian (20:51):

Okay. And there’s two terms you’ll hear. This is the, uh, like Brian said, the lead card and then sometimes there’ll be a what’s called the Chase card and they’re both filmed. And so today and last week we covered the Chase card. This week we’re just covering the lead card. Uh, so, you know,

Brian Friend (21:05):

All part of that is because this tournament is, it’s uh, it’s not one of those made in 16 stops. So not all the best players played in this. There are still tons of good players that played the best, currently the best player in the world played in it. And um, so we’ll get to see a couple guys that, that have been close or even that have done well, but haven’t made it onto the coverage in the other tournaments. So it’s nice to, we can get a learn a few more characters in the story.

Sevan Matossian (21:30):

Uh, in, in the last two weeks, uh, Brian pointed out to us were the closest to, uh, I dunno what you call ’em, tournaments. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, do you call these things tournaments in the history of the sport. So they had back-to-back weeks with just tons of dudes, uh, within striking distance of the podium the entire three days. So keep that in mind as

Brian Friend (21:49):

You, I actually was, uh, watching one of Simon Lazzo blogs this week and he said I, uh, in the middle of that last round, I was in 40th place and I finished in second cuz it was that tight. Wow. He shot really well on the back nine and moved from 40th all the way up to second. Overall it’s insane. Like you can’t, that’s unheard of

Sevan Matossian (22:08):

Crazy. Okay. Uh, three 40, I wanna introduce you to a new guy. Uh, this guy has the nicest body of any of the players we’ve covered to date. Uh, seven.

Brian Friend (22:17):

We have very, very important person in the chat. He shares my last name.

Sevan Matossian (22:24):

I’m looking, oh, Kevin, friend Brian, can you show the woman on lead or chase card at Waco?

Brian Friend (22:31):

He’s talking about the woman that missed all those putts from close range that we covered last time. And that’s my brother by the way.

Sevan Matossian (22:36):

Oh, Kevin. Hi. Oh yeah, what happened? What happened? That’s the, that’s the best woman in the world.

Brian Friend (22:41):

She’s, they, they say that she’s the best at throwing the disc. So she’s got a great accuracy, great distance, but her putting is is atrocious at times.

Sevan Matossian (22:50):

You guys, it, this looked like, um, it looked ridiculous. Do we still have that anywhere, Caleb? Okay. I’m not sure we do. Okay. Uh, the guy you’re looking at, his name is Ezra Ater. Hold, uh, it almost sounds like a trick name that someone would use in the side. Ezra Ater. Hold, er, hold, er, hold, uh, better. Hadn’t hadn’t seen him before. Uh, buff Tucks his shirt in, wears his pants a little too tight. Uh, letting the ladies know he is got a great body. Uh, he is here in the lead card, uh,

Brian Friend (23:22):

And he is one of the guys that I was referring to. He actually has a second place finish at the opening tournament of the year in Las Vegas, but he was never on either the lead or chase cart. You just had a really, he was close, close, close. Had a really good final round. Second place is incredible. It was his best finish ever in one of those caliber tournaments. So it’s nice that we finally get to see him here.

Sevan Matossian (23:40):

And the guys you’re gonna see, uh, on this, um, round two part one, uh, Ezra Aderhold, uh, Kyle Klein, uh, Calvin, Vinny Hein, and uh, Joel Freeman. Those are the four cats, uh, that we’re gonna be following.

Brian Friend (23:56):

It may be worth noting that Calvin Hein had the hot round or the best round in round one. So he is coming in as a leader starting the day.

Sevan Matossian (24:02):

Minus 10.

Brian Friend (24:04):


Sevan Matossian (24:04):

10, meaning in the first round he shot, uh, um, I mean 10 birdie’s and eight par. I mean, I know that’s not what he shot, but that’s how you it

Brian Friend (24:16):

Is actually exactly what he

Sevan Matossian (24:17):

Shot. Oh, well, shit, there you go.

Brian Friend (24:19):

And he had a one stroke lead on Joel Freeman and a two shot shot lead over Kyle Klein and Ezra eight Yearold.

Sevan Matossian (24:24):

Okay, fantastic. Okay. Uh, don’t worry, uh, Caleb, if you can’t find it, we at some point, we, you guys were, uh, you guys will, we’ll show you. Oh, look it, here it comes. Uh, Ezra at or hold my beer? Yeah. Not bad. Okay, look at this. This is just ridiculous. This is the, this is, this is why we haven’t covered women’s golf yet. Oh man. That’s not gonna go well. Let me take another shot at that. Uh, we should cover women’s golf because of this. Okay, here we go. <laugh>, watch this. This is, this is,

Speaker 4 (24:53):

Alina did miss the par opportunity she had a moment ago. So this is for bogie.

Sevan Matossian (24:59):

For bogie, for Bogie. <laugh>. Hey, what was she looking at? Sound like she hit the cameraman. Sound like she hit the cameraman by the way. Uh, she was vaccinated, uh, just two days prior to this. I’m just correlate, correlate. Just a correlate

Speaker 5 (25:12):

Left with

Speaker 4 (25:14):

Yeah, this is almost exactly where she was two putts ago.

Sevan Matossian (25:18):

Oh, shit. They say that stuff and the commentary, or is that a joke?

Speaker 5 (25:22):

That’s the disgust. That’s so sad to see her going through these, putting struggles again this year. She was in the lead for the final round of this tournament last year. She turned off and then the tournament was out of her hands and there was no coming back.

Sevan Matossian (25:41):

Oh my God. <laugh>. Hey, hey, listen, can you pause this? The every show I watch with the men, I’m waiting for them to miss that shot and they’ve never missed it. That shot right there. Like, I’m like, dude, they don’t even look at the basket. They, they look at Caleb’s got his arms up and his dying. Caleb’s dying in the back there. I could see him <laugh>. I mean, that was ridiculous. It’s almost like she was paid to miss.

Brian Friend (26:06):


Sevan Matossian (26:07):

That’s the movie. That’s the Will Ferrell movie right there. <laugh>. Yeah. Fake. I know. How about those birds were fake too? What the fuck is up with the recording in the mix of that


Jetro, uh, Cardona trying to relate. This was Lauren Fisher on the P bars. <laugh>, I don’t remember that, but that doesn’t sound nice. Uh uh You didn’t watch Jeremy Garcia? I make that shot. Uh, uh, eight Natty, uh, deep <laugh>. Uh, for those of you don’t know, Natty is a very cheap American beer and he’s eight of ’em. Is is like one shot of, uh, whiskey man. That’s pathetic. Okay, we’ll leave her alone. Get her on the show and talk to her about that. Okay. Uh, back to the buff guy. Uh, okay, here we go. Uh, uh, we’re starting off guys. Uh, got a long night ahead of us. Let’s rock and roll. Ezra Adder hold, uh, three 40 off the T hole. One look and buff.

Brian Friend (27:11):

Pretty difficult opening hole. Very few birdies any day. It doesn’t, there’s nothing that like, seems that difficult about it, but the way that the trees are set up in the fairway, just you have to beat one tree that has the red stripe on it that you’re gonna see. You have to stay to the right of that. And he did not. So he came up short of the tree there. So that’s missing the mandatory, but even if you get past that, there’s a bunch of other trees that make the shot into the green pretty difficult. And there’s out of bound surrounding the green as the case with most of these holes. So I think it, there was like two to five birdies every day on this hole.

Sevan Matossian (27:42):

Uh, th four 30, Kyle, uh, goes for a shot. Uh, this is this. So n n pay attention here. This is this guy’s, is this the shot?

Brian Friend (27:57):

Massive spike heiser. He’s going over out bounds the entire time, basically. And he spikes it in there 20, 30 feet away.

Sevan Matossian (28:03):

Oh, okay. I had that wrong then I said hi, uh, hits a tree and it cost him Shot two. Oh no, no, sorry, sorry. He

Brian Friend (28:11):

Hit a tree. Sorry. He hit a tree on that shop before that there was out bounds and it bounced his disc back inbounds and then screwed it up from there. You’re

Sevan Matossian (28:19):

Right. Sorry. Thank you. My notes are all jacked up. Go back to four 30. I wanted to ask you about this here real quick. I think, I think this is, I think there was a question here. Sorry. Okay. Uh, okay. That’s what it was. Simply what it was. What Brian is saying is, is that in his first, uh, tee, uh, first shot, um, Kyle hit that tree and then it, it bounced back in. That’s legit. Mm-hmm. <affirmative> you, if you hit a tree that’s outta bounds and your ball bounces back in, your disc bounces back in, you’re good to go. You don’t get it outta bound.

Brian Friend (28:45):

Yeah. It’s wherever your disc comes to rest. If it’s inbound, it’s good. No matter what happened before that,

Sevan Matossian (28:50):

How did you remember that?

Brian Friend (28:53):

Remember we rehearsed all of these 17 times before,

Sevan Matossian (28:55):

Right? Uh, five 20. Um, Hein, Calvin, Vinny, this is the guy that, uh, Brian, uh, referred to as the best in the biz right now.

Brian Friend (29:05):

So this is an awesome drive. And you see even here he has these, this tight tunnel to navigate low ceiling and it’s still pretty far. So he doesn’t get it all the way to the pin. And that’s why there were so few, uh, birdies on the day.

Sevan Matossian (29:17):

And then 6 0 4, uh, Hein going for the putt. That’s Joel Freeman and the strawberry shirt behind him to the right. And uh, Hein misses the birdie.

Brian Friend (29:38):

Yep. Comes up short there. And he is been putting, you know, pretty well. So definitely had a chance there.

Sevan Matossian (29:44):

Oh, we cruise over to hold two. Not a lot of highlights here. We’re gonna skip straight to the end. Kyle Klein, how old is Kyle Klein?

Brian Friend (29:53):

One of my other buddie I played this golf with is in the chat now. Hold Tim. Hartwick. What’s up Tim? Mr.

Sevan Matossian (29:57):

Hartwick. Hi. How are you? Welcome to the show. You guys are made.
