Actually, we stayed on to shoot a second Whats In The Bag? in Las Vegas because there are more cool on-course golf games than can be fit into even that many shows ' but we figured nine holes just isnt enough.
Just to recap, in the first show about games golfers use to sharpen the competition (which aired Monday, May 16), we reviewed some old favorites and included a few you may not have heard of. Of course, The Golf Channel doesnt take a position on on-course wagering, so what you play for ' lunch, chips, dollars, pounds sterling, pork belly futures ' is all up to you.
So it was on to our golf game back nine. The second show airs Monday, May 23 at 10:50 p.m. ET as part of Your Game Night.
The remainder of our extended round, which we played at Legacy, a fine club, and Royal Links, a Scottish-like test not far from the Strip, decided all the outstanding bets, garbage and non. And I came up on theumshort end of thewrong side of theI lost.
But what a time I had, checking out all these old and new games. As long as there are golfers, there will be games, bets, competition ' in short, fun, in all its local and regional variations.
So keep it up, folks. We shot the show, but over the decades, you wrote it. Play on, play well, andhey, lemme see your handicap card. Oh, really? Well, well just call your club about this right now.
