Episode 78: PNC Recap and Interview with Toby Harbeck (Charlie Woods HS Coach)

December 19, 2023

As 2023 is winding down, it was PNC time again. Bernhard Langer and his son won the title, but Tiger and Charlie Woods stole the show as expected. Charlie showed off his power and charisma as he drove par 4's and made chip-in birdies. It was great to see Tiger out there having a great time as Charlie soaked up the attention and was all over social media. With Charlie Woods all over the internet, we have a special guest interview this week with his high school coach at the Benjamin School, Toby Harbeck. The Benjamin School is coming off a state championship, where Charlie played an integral part in the win. Toby will give us some insight into coaching with the spotlight on his team, his interactions with Tiger Woods and Justin Leonard as his son also is on the team. He also will talk about Jack Nicklaus and his sons, as they also played for Toby in the 80's. You won't want to miss this interview. It sounds like the PGA Tour may be getting an infusion of cash, but not from the Saudi's and the PIF as we thought. The Strategic Sports Group, with owners from multiple sports teams, the Boston Celtics and Red Sox, Atlanta Falcons, etc. is in talks to infuse $3 billion dollars into the tour. What does this do for the talks with the PIF/LIV golf? Will the tour get billions from both? Will that deal fall out? Time will tell as we put a bow on 2023 and get ready for the 2024 golf season.
