rivers edge logo 125Yes, Shan and Jeff begin the interview by talking about the hair products golf professionals use and the underwear they are all becoming obsessed with.  Yes the word underwear used because as Jeff pointed out and Shan confirmed, there is a new phenomenon sweeping the golf shops across the country.  Well, at least across the Carolinas, Shan’s husband included.  The company or brand is called 2-Under and they only make men’s underwear right now.  There is talk of a ladies sports bra line titled 2-over coming out soon.  Time had to be given to this topic as no one can really believe how popular they are becoming with the unique “joey pouch” and the fact that golf shops are now carrying and selling a ton of underwear.  You just have to see it to believe it so on your next stop into a Grand Strand Golf Course shop, ask to see their 2-Unders….the ones in the box of course.  According to local professionals, it can change your life!  You’re welcome Mike Bender.

rivers edge 2For those who tuned in for a golf show, Jeff and Shan do get around to talking about the course and some great events coming up.  Jeff tells us that Rivers Edge is now covering the greens when the temperature drops to care for the unique Sea Dwarf Paspallum greens.  This should allow for a more true roll during the daytime.  The only other course along The Grand Strand that has the paspallum grass is Pine Lakes.  You can play on these unique greens in a couple of weeks at their Super Bowl Scramble.  Participants get breakfast and lunch, a $10 gift card, a certificate to come back and play, ticket for the many prizes that will be given away during lunch which includes a 55″ flat screen  to watch the Super Bowl, all for $45.

Jeff jokes that we should come out and play since they are in the process of taking down some trees for our producer Jeff.   Designed by Arnold Palmer, producer Jeff wondered whose diabolical mind came up with the design for the 9th hole.  While a true golf challenge and a thrill to make par, it is one of the more difficult holes on the Strand.  Go  to their website at www.river18.com for more information and to see the pictures of this gorgeous, but difficult hole.
