There are about 300 recesses on one golf ball, and thanks to them, the ball flies three times farther than a smooth one. ... Balls of the same size...

Holey Moley - Our Editor on TV!

Holey Moley - Our Editor on TV!

In case you missed Pat's blog, we're happy to announce that tonight, July 25th, at 8pm Eastern Time in the US, our editor Pat Sheridan will make his debut on ABC's Holey Moley. This show is a fun competition that pits physical and mental challenges together with some actual pressure putting to eliminate contestants across three rounds. The winner of each episode walks away with $25,000, a plaid jacket and a golden putter.

While this isn't the traditional miniature golf competition we're used to, its still great to see the sport highlighted on a major network in the United States. The competitors come from all walks of life and include pro players like Pat and Robin Ventura (who recently won two gold medals at the 2019 World Adventure Golf Masters), so there's some representation of the serious side of the sport.

We won't know exactly how much air time Pat will get during the hour show until it airs, but it will still be fun seeing the worldwide competitive minigolf community represented. We plan on having one post next week where Pat answers some of the questions he can about his episode in particular and then he's planning a longer blog post after the season about his whole experience. It's great exposure for the sport and who knows if we might see more (and more international) seasons in the future!

Let me know if you have any specific questions on the episode - I've got some that have been common but willing to answer as much as I can. I think my full blog will be interesting because the whole experience had a lot of great minigolf moments in it.

Very tempted to comment on Pat's Holey Moley performance, but his comments will be so much better!
