Tee’d Off – Episode 14

Episode 14: LIV Golf Bombshells, Sunday Red, Myrtle Beach Breweries, & Arrowhead Country Club in Myrtle Beach!

In this episode of Tee’d Off, the crew discusses the new drama in the world of golf, including new LIV Golf defections and rumors, Tiger’s new apparel deal with TaylorMade, and an amateur winning a PGA Tour event for the first time in 30 years! PGA Professional Jake Benton joins the studio to discuss the prominent Arrowhead Country Club in Myrtle Beach. Aaron and Ben share what packages and accommodations fit well with Arrowhead Country Club, and some great things to do in the Myrtle Beach area after a fun round of play in the Golf Capital of the World! The show wraps with another great segment of “Tee’d Off!”

For the first time since Phil Mickelson in 1991, an amateur won a PGA Tour event! Nick Dunlap took home the trophy at the American Express Championship at PGA West, scoring a tournament-best round of 60 on Saturday and a dramatic finish to hold on to the lead on Sunday. Although his amateur status prevented Nick from taking home the $1.5 million prize, he did leave with some special parting gifts, including PGA Tour exemptions and entry into all 4 upcoming major championships. Nick also won’t be hurting monetarily for long, as he has recently announced he is turning professional and will be competing on the PGA Tour full-time for the remainder of 2024.

LIV Golf pulled another big name over to their controversial alternative golf tour; world number 16 Tyrell Hatton has signed onto Jon Rahm’s Legion XIII for a deal worth $50 million dollars. Tyrell is the newest defections amongst a batch of rumored PGA Tour departures, including names like Wyndham Clark and Brian Harmon. One of the biggest names rumored in this group is quite a blast from the past.. Anthony Kim! AK is slated to make his long-awaited return to professional golf by joining LIV in March. Kim, who has not played on the PGA Tour since 2012, has been absent from the game due to injuries and a large insurance policy that would be void if he returned to the tour. The large LIV sign on bonuses have made it possible for AK to take the risk and return to competitive golf. Kim’s energy, cockiness, and risk-it-all style of play made him quite the polarizing figure in 2008-2011; it will be great to see him tee it up again soon on the big stage again!

Tiger Woods’ recent split from Nike Golf has left many in the golf world wondering what the future would be for the Goat’s personal brand. Those questions were answered quickly, as TaylorMade has recently filed for Trademark rights for a new logo of a new brand known as Sunday Red! This new brand appears to be the next chapter in what has been an iconic period of golf fashion. Sunday Red will feature apparel and accessory offerings, so we look forward to seeing what TaylorMade comes up with!

Jake Benton, PGA Professional of Arrowhead Country Club, stops by the Tee’d Off studio to talk shop and explain what makes one of the highest requested Myrtle Beach courses so special. Arrowhead is located just off of Highway 501 in Myrtle Beach, and offers 27 premium holes. Jake is proud of the wall-to-wall overseeding program that makes Arrowhead green and pristine year-round! The mini verde bermuda greens are always a treat and roll pure year round. Jake breaks down Arrowhead’s signature hole: Waterway #5, which offers some of the finest views of the Intracoastal Waterway! The package of the episode is the popular Elite Package, which offers great pricing and replay offerings for some of the most premium courses in Myrtle Beach. 

The accommodations of the episode are Bay View on the Boardwalk and Paradise Resort. Each offers 1, 2, 3, and 4-bedroom options to fit most budgets so golfers can stay in style on the oceanfront and be close to all the action in Myrtle Beach! Off the course, the Tee’d Off crew breaks down some of the area’s most popular breweries, including Voodoo Brewing Grand Strand Brewing Company, and Crooked Hammock Brewery.
