episode 12: Pepe x Bash - Ireland Perspectives

If you follow us on social media or even listened to past episodes, you know that the 2022 Ireland trip was highly anticipated. Now, it’s over. We bring you this episode as a Pepe x Bash banter sesh and call in three of our buddies who were on the trip. We talk golf, travel, and what it was like playing across the pond. Our lineup of courses we played is Portstewart, Portrush, Royal County Down, Ardglass, The Island, and Portmarnock. If you haven’t been, you better go.

We open up the episode and phone in our first guest, Brandon Katzeff, aka BKatz. We take his perspective on the trip and hear his thoughts. We ask what his most ‘miserable’ moment in Ireland was..because, let’s be honest, sometimes the course will get the best of ya. 

We then phone in our second ‘guest,’ Brian John, aka Bimmer. Bimmer carries a smile wherever he goes. Fortunately, his smile and positive attitude helped to carry him through the links. We hear Bimmer’s take on Ireland, and his excitement can’t be missed. Bouncing like a kangaroo, everyone’s weekend golf group needs a Bimmer!

We wrap up the episode with our grand finale, Mr. Ian Patrick Archer, aka IPA! Ian is known for his social media game where he shares every and any bit of content he can capture. If you followed along, he conducted caddie interviews, swing shots, and other content from the trip. Aside from IP’s motion sickness, his trip across the pond was a clean one, and if you don’t know IP, you need to. 

As always, we thank you for listening to our podcast and specifically this episode! Tune in, laugh, and share and remember, keep chasin’!
