episode 18: The Wiz Show - James Wisniewski

This week’s guest is no different than our past guests on Chasin’ Birdies…well, maybe he is. James Wisniewski joins us on this week’s episode of Chasin’ Birdies to talk about all things golf, hockey, gambling, and more! Hailing from Sherwood Country Club, James stays chasin’ birdies on the reg. 

We open up the episode and dive into some hockey talk. James had a phenomenal career in the NHL playing in over 550 games. He was a member of Team USA in the Olympics and achieved much success on the ice. We talk about the current NHL landscape and what’s going on in the league today. 

We transition the episode and get right into golf. A scratch golfer, James is a golf addict to a ‘tee.’ We talk about his time at Muirfiled Village in Dublin, OH, where he became friendly with Tour players such as Jason Day. We get a peek into the on-course games that they played and how much money was on the line. 

We talk about playing golf across the pond in Scotland and why golf is a sport that is much better with a good group of friends and a couple cold beers. We banter back and forth about golf, and some funny stories are told. You’ll just have to listen to hear them firsthand. 

We transition the episode over to our tap-in segment, where Wiz is asked questions that demand his quick response. For hockey lovers and golf lovers, this episode won’t disappoint. Tune in NOW and let us know what you think!
