Every now and then, we like to bring on a guest who’s either a pro golfer or one that is a helluva lot better than us two. Today’s guest accomplishes just that. We welcome Ben Carr on today’s episode of Chasin’ Birdies. The Georgia Southern 5th-year senior battled hard in the U.S. Amateur Championship, where he ended up losing 1-down to Sam Bennett.
We open up the episode and talk to Ben a little about his background, how he got into golf, and what propelled him to be where he is today. It’s no wonder he has a strong grip considering he thought baseball would be his ‘sport.’
After a couple minutes of talk and a shout-out to Mason Williams, we can’t help but dive into the 2022 U.S. Amateur talk. Ben wasn’t sure he was going to even qualify for the event, but after a few good rounds, he found himself advancing past the first set of matches with a 7 and 5 victory.
Ben found himself 5 down after 22 holes but managed to rally with back-to-back birdies before taking this match all the way to the 36th hole. The emotional roller coaster was real, and hear it firsthand in this interview with the 2022 U.S. Am runner-up.
We transition over to our tap-in segment, where Ben is asked 4 questions that demand his quick-witted response. We promise you, a few of these questions have never been asked before. Tune in, share, and let us know how you like this drop. Good luck to the 2022 GASO Men’s Golf Team…keep chasin’.
