I could care less "who" this guy is frankly but I sure know he has been a club pro at a private course because I can recognize the standard behaviors that go along with the position, especially his fixation on "corporate outings" that tie the private course up for too many afternoons in our short seasons.  These things are killer events for the club management (the banquets) and for the club pro--the tee prizes and equipment sales but we members, based on keeping our annual costs down, suffer in silence--except for me and a couple of other old f@rts who don't have a lot of time left for corporate outing delays.
I also can relate to the "I don't want to hear about your putt on number two" and "unless you are going to tell me about the fine crotch shot on the beer cart girl, I'm not interested" is just some of the classic behaviors I have been subjected to with some eight to ten club pros we have had on our course the last 30 years.
Those observations were worth the price of the interview ticket in my book.

CPG is an actor, not a former club pro.  He's an actor just like the other characters in the videos.  Caddie, ex-wife, CPG - all actors.

The real talent are the writers and pro consultant.

Definitely need more of this to remove the "stuffy, bourgeoisie" stigma that golf brings. I am surprised that Golf Channel has not reached out to him to do a half-hour show or even a 15 minute segment for their Pre-game show.

Him roasting Brandel for 5-minutes would be awesome

So I finally get my @CallawayGolf FTiQ driver dialed in and now they want me to buy a brand new model? No thanks.

You know how you keep from having to have corporate outings?  Raise your dues.

You know how you retain a great pro? Pay him a decent salary aka raise your dues.

Trust me Club Pro Guy knows your type as well as you know his.

3.  Anastasia Adams -If there was such a thing as a 5-Star beverage cart girl prospect, this is it.  Anastasia has all the tools. The question is can she put them all together to become a complete player?  Ana recently returned to Kansas City after working the last 2 years in Las Vegas as a private contractor in the 'late night' hospitality industry.  She's hoping to re-establish roots here by finding a job that, in her words, has "consistent contact with married men and deals in large sums of cash with minimal to no oversight".  A perfect description of this position!  Although Anastasia's knowledge of golf is somewhat limited, she makes up for it by refusing to ever wear skorts. I hesitate to call her the favorite, but I really find Ana to be a strong candidate.

Not sure if I'm allowed to post pics, so won't, but Anastasia is definitely my front-runner for 2019 Beverage Cart Girl.

Although after re-reading all the applications, it seems Celeste might also be a strong candidate?

1.  Tiffany Timmons - Our first finalist is from nearby Independence, MO.  Tiffany is an aspiring dental hygienist assistant who's latest job as a hostess at Cheddar's fell victim to downsizing. Her interests include tanning, social media and her new IPhone X.  Her favorite golf memory was seeing the hacked selfies Tiger Woods took of himself and sent to Lindsey Vonn.  A serial entrepreneur, Tiffany understands and appreciates that 18 handicaps in cargo shorts want more out of their beverage cart girl than 8 Keystone lights and a friendly smile.  They want flirtation that borders on prostitution. In one of our early interviews, Tiffany asked me how many of our members "liked to party". That type of go-getter attitude vaulted her in to my final four and I continue to expect great things from her throughout the remainder of this process.

Any news on when a new Podcast might be coming out?  Last one was almost 2 months ago, seems to be slowing down a bit.
