Speaker 1 (00:03):

The Charlie Rymer Golf Show starring Charlie Rymer. Hey, okay, let’s pick up the tempo.

Charlie Rymer (00:13):

Charlie Rymer here, and welcome to my new show where we do things my way. As a former golf pro and media personality, I know golf. This isn’t going to be your grandfather’s golf show. I’m bringing you conversations with celebs and golf greats, getting off the course and out on the water, and even getting into some good eats. This is the Charlie Rymer Golf Show. Keep it in the fairway, folks.


Today I’m at Rivers Edge Golf Club in Shallotte, North Carolina. This is the top end of Myrtle Beach, and I’m hanging with Basketball Hall of Famer, Rick Barry. I’m Charlie Rymer and this is Ridin’ with Rymer. Rick Barry, come and get in my golf cart. We have got some golf to play today. This is Rivers Edge. It’s one of Mr. Palmer’s courses. I know you knew Mr. Palmer.

Rick Barry (01:12):


Charlie Rymer (01:13):

This one is one of his beauties.

Rick Barry (01:14):

All right, well, it looks pretty right now as I try to keep it out of the marsh.

Charlie Rymer (01:17):

I think you won’t have any problem. I’m ready to watch you bust some drivers. Let’s go. Rick, you are very likely one of the best athletes to ever lace up any kind of shoes. And looking at your record and everything that you’ve set, the Basketball Hall of Fame and the success you’ve had in other sports, the thing that interests me is being a great athlete, do you think you were born to that or is this something that you worked at?

Rick Barry (01:46):

Well, here’s the situation. I think that for any great athlete it’s born and then if you’re fortunate enough to have people to refine what it is that you have there inside your body naturally, and to take it and to utilize it in the best way possible… When you look at a player, what is it that you’re looking for? And I tell them, because in basketball, what I look for is, does the player have a natural feel for the game? There’s such a thing as a natural feel. If you don’t have a natural feel for the game, you’ll never be as good as someone who has a natural feel for the game even if you’re incredibly gifted athletically. And then you get the special players who have the natural feel, who are gifted athletically, and those are your superstar players. Those are the ones that take everything that they have within them to maximize that potential to be as great as they wind up becoming. But without that natural feel, you just don’t have it. I tell people, I can teach you how to pass a basketball.

Charlie Rymer (02:40):


Rick Barry (02:40):

I can’t teach you how to see.

Charlie Rymer (02:42):


Rick Barry (02:42):

Okay? You either have that feel or you don’t. And that’s what I think it comes down to. I think it’s the same situation for probably in golfers. These guys had a natural feel for the game.

Charlie Rymer (02:53):


Rick Barry (02:53):

I mean, because it’s not something… I mean, golf is so difficult. Oh my God, the respect that I have for golfers, Charlie, the most difficult sport I’ve ever tried to play. And I’ve been very good. I mean, I got to be a one handicap, and the better I got, the more frustrated I got. The more time you have to put into it, boy, it is such a difficult game.

Charlie Rymer (03:09):

There’s so many games in one. I mean, I know basketball-

Rick Barry (03:11):

And here.

Charlie Rymer (03:12):

… Football-

Rick Barry (03:12):

Right here.

Charlie Rymer (03:13):

… So many games in.

Rick Barry (03:14):

But it here, it’s the mental part.

Charlie Rymer (03:15):

And you’re not reacting so many times.

Rick Barry (03:18):

No, nothing. No, no, there’s zero reaction to golf. That’s the whole thing. That little silly white ball is just sitting there and you just have to look at it and figure out what to do and the different shots you have to have, the different clubs you have to use, the conditions you play in. I tell people, you can play golf 365 days a year, 366 at Leap Year, same tees, same pin placement, never will have the same shot twice, ever. It’s an impossibility.

Charlie Rymer (03:39):


Rick Barry (03:39):

That’s how difficult golf is. All right, so let’s go hit some golf balls.

Charlie Rymer (03:47):

You’re going to love what I got for you today.

Rick Barry (03:49):


Charlie Rymer (03:49):

This is River’s Edge Golf Club designed by Mr. Palmer. We got some great views and I’m going to get you to hit some long drives. I mean, when you’re World Long Drive Champion, you need to hit a driver, right? I got to hear about this juju swing, the load and explode.

Rick Barry (04:09):

Oh, no, no, no. I used to do that. I did that with, yeah, with Brad Peterson who got me. It was a great story actually. I’m at a retired players associates deal in Las Vegas, and I see this guy talking to some of the guys that I know after the meeting was over. So I see him doing this crazy thing and this is what he did here. He did it here, this up and do that. I’m always open to things, right?

Charlie Rymer (04:29):


Rick Barry (04:29):

So I said, “Show me.” I went to the driving range right over there by the airport in Las Vegas and he showed me what it was and I started to practice with it. And my first competitions and all, I went out and used that swing and I wind up winning a World Long Driving Championship.

Charlie Rymer (04:43):

One of four.

Rick Barry (04:44):

Yeah, one of four. I came close in a couple other ones. I mean, one guy, I hit a ball, it hit and plugged. His ball hit and rolled and he beat me just by a little bit and I wound up losing that one. Yeah, so I went back to my other stuff and I don’t swing any differently than I swing when I play and I still wound up winning.

Charlie Rymer (05:00):

Let’s see it. Let’s see you launch one out there.

Rick Barry (05:02):

Interesting to see if I could do anything without getting all warmed up and stuff here. That’s pretty darn good for not really warming up.

Charlie Rymer (05:15):

Folks, Rick Barry. He’s still got it. Well, I just heard it land. What a great swing. That’s awesome.

Rick Barry (05:24):

Not bad for an old man.

Charlie Rymer (05:25):

That’s perfect. You spend your whole life trying to not hit the ball in the water.

Rick Barry (05:31):


Charlie Rymer (05:31):

I’m seeing this really cool river right there.

Rick Barry (05:34):

Yeah, okay. Okay. I’m going to try to see if I can get it to splash right in the water over there. Just my challenge in the day. My wife always did that when we went skiing, the challenge of the day. So let’s see if I can hit it straight enough to get a splash in that water.

Charlie Rymer (05:47):

You got 20 yard wide river.

Rick Barry (05:49):

All right, let’s see what we got here. Oh yeah, baby. I did it.

Charlie Rymer (05:54):

Yes sir. You carried it too far.

Rick Barry (05:56):

I carried it too far. I hit it over the water.

Charlie Rymer (05:58):

You’re too strong.

Rick Barry (05:59):

God, I hit that good.

Charlie Rymer (06:00):

It was right down the middle too. Good hit. You are among the two most competitive people that I’ve ever been around in my life. Four time World Long Drive Champion, you’re ranked in pickle ball, you have various business interests. I see so many parallels between you and Jack Nicholas. Jack Nicklaus with his business, with tennis. I know you played a lot of tennis. I’m sure you probably played a lot of tennis with him. And now his main form of competition, he loves raising money for Nicklaus’ Children’s Healthcare Foundation.

Rick Barry (06:33):

And he loves to fly fish.

Charlie Rymer (06:34):

And he likes to fly fish and he wants to beat you in anything that you do. And the two of you are the most competitive I’ve ever seen. Where does that competitive spirit come from for you?

Rick Barry (06:45):

Well, probably my father. My father was a semipro player and coach. He’s the one that laid that foundation and taught me how to play the game the right way. He was a perfectionist. I mean, he was never satisfied. And I remember, and I try to tell kids still, my father instilled in me one of the best things ever, and I try to instill in all my boys, is take pride in everything that you do in life. Always give your best effort and don’t be afraid to fail. We’re human beings. I mean, we’re not some supernatural person or we’re not a robot or whatever it may be. You’re going to fail. But intelligent people learn from the mistakes that they make and you minimize those mistakes and try not to repeat them and that helps to make you better.

Charlie Rymer (07:22):

What I love hearing from you today is so much of it. The concepts that work in sports, this is what you’re talking, is that intersection of how you learn things that work in sports, that work in business, that work in family. It’s common sense. Put people in a position to succeed. Treat people with respect. Work hard, team. That’s what I love so much about hanging out with somebody like you, because I’m thinking of things that you’re talking basketball, but I’m thinking, well, how do I put that in play in my family? How do I put that in play in my business? And that whole intersection of sports and business, I think it’s just a wonderful mesh.

Rick Barry (07:59):

Life and sports, I mean business and sports especially, I mean, the correlation when I talk to businesses, I think the same talents and skills or qualities that I had as a person to be successful in basketball applied to the business world as well. I mean, it’s just a matter of preparing yourself properly, being honest with yourself, and again, the other thing is that so many people are afraid to fail. I mean, everybody fails. I mean, it’s okay to fail, just don’t keep doing the same dumb things over and over again. Right?

Charlie Rymer (08:29):

Learn from it.

Rick Barry (08:30):

Learn from your mistakes.

Charlie Rymer (08:34):

So Rick, it has been awesome spending time with you. I want to finish up here at 18. You got the unusual putting technique. You got to show that off for me here at 18.

Rick Barry (08:44):

All right. Happy to do it.

Charlie Rymer (08:45):

All right, Rick, I know you like a good challenge.

Rick Barry (08:47):


Charlie Rymer (08:48):

We got this 15 footer for birdie here at 18. I’m going to put a hand in your face and see if you can make it.

Rick Barry (08:53):

Well, here’s the thing is that I can shoot my free throws, and when you have enough confidence, with my eyes closed. I can make 80% with my eyes closed.

Charlie Rymer (08:58):

All right, let’s see. Hand in face.

Rick Barry (09:00):

So I just… Let me get lined up first and then see if I can putt it without having to look at it. Once I get lined up, let me get, so here. Because if you have it down enough, you should be able to do it.

Charlie Rymer (09:12):

Hand in face.

Rick Barry (09:12):

Go ahead. Well, you can actually do that. I could actually close my eyes too. I can close my eyes.

Charlie Rymer (09:22):

And that folks is why this man is in the basketball Hall of Fame. Rick, it’s a pleasure. I learned so much from you today and I know our viewers did too. Appreciate you spending time with us here in Myrtle Beach.

Rick Barry (09:32):

My pleasure. Thanks for having me.

Charlie Rymer (09:33):

Hand in the face, it didn’t slow him down. I’m going to keep this one. This is going on my shelf. That’s so awesome.


Welcome back to the Charlie Rymer Golf show. Some days I just hop in my golf cart and there’s no telling where I’ll end up. Today, I found myself at Myrtle Beach State Park. Let’s see if we can catch up with my pal, Ranger Ann and meet some golfers. Hey, Ranger Ann.

Ranger Ann (10:18):

Hey, how are you?

Charlie Rymer (10:19):

All right, Charlie Rymer. Nice to see you.

Ranger Ann (10:20):

Good to meet you.

Charlie Rymer (10:21):

I understand that you’re going to give me a little bit of a tour of the Myrtle Beach State Park today.

Ranger Ann (10:26):

I hope to show you how amazing this beautiful piece of green 312 acre paradise is. We’ll have a lot of fun today.

Charlie Rymer (10:33):

Are we going to catch any fish?

Ranger Ann (10:34):

I can never guarantee, but I know we can go fishing and then we can tell some fish tails, right?

Charlie Rymer (10:39):

Yeah, I’m a specialist at that. Let’s give it a shot.

Ranger Ann (10:42):

All right, let’s go.

Charlie Rymer (10:46):

All right, so Ranger Ann, I’ve got my pole, we got some bait there, looks like a little bit of shrimp. What can we expect to catch here today on the pier?

Ranger Ann (10:55):

Well, isn’t that the joy of fishing, you never know. But lately, we’ve been catching some small croaker, whiting, some blues are coming in. I tend to be one who loves the silly stuff like Sea robins and Toadfish. I like the non eating fish, because they’re just fun. The shark sucker like a remora, hangs on the shark. Those are fun.

Charlie Rymer (11:15):

Yeah. Yeah. What are our chance to catch like a great white guppy today?

Ranger Ann (11:18):

I’m pretty sure slim to none, great white guppy, but we can always talk stories about that.

Charlie Rymer (11:22):

Tiger headed minnow?

Ranger Ann (11:23):

Tiger headed minnow, I haven’t heard of those. But it’s the ocean anything can happen, I guess.

Charlie Rymer (11:27):

You hang with me, you’ll hear a lot of stuff that you never heard of. All right. I know you got to get me ready.

Ranger Ann (11:33):

Yeah. So everybody, when you go to any fishing pier, really anywhere, you tend to have to pay to fish and then you always wear your wristband so that way we know that you’re legit.

Charlie Rymer (11:45):

I’m ready to go.

Ranger Ann (11:46):

I want you to be legit, Charlie.

Charlie Rymer (11:47):

We’re going to get us a tiger headed minnow. You watch and see. Okay, Ann, you’ve got me set up with some gear here. I’m guessing we’re going to have to put some bait on it.

Ranger Ann (11:54):

Yeah. So we have a two trap bottom rig. So we’re going to use the shrimp and most people, they’ll take this whole shrimp and put it on and why waste the shrimp? Because we’re really going for small fish. We’re not going to catch the giant whatever you call it.

Charlie Rymer (12:04):

What do you mean we’re not going to catch the giant whatchamacallit?

Ranger Ann (12:07):

We’re going for small fish that are just around the pier so we’re just going to hook it on in.

Charlie Rymer (12:11):


Ranger Ann (12:12):

Just a little bit. A whole hook there. See, look, I don’t have to use all my shrimp. Then, are you going to cast or are you just going to drop straight down?

Charlie Rymer (12:20):

I’m going to cast.

Ranger Ann (12:21):

Okay. I’m going to get out of the way then.

Charlie Rymer (12:23):

Okay. The only thing I want to ask you is I love seafood and here’s what I could never figure out. I like shrimp better than fish. Why are we using perfectly good shrimp to catch something that I don’t like as much is what we’re going to catch?

Ranger Ann (12:36):

I hear you, but this won’t be shrimp you would eat. I mean, it was processed.

Charlie Rymer (12:40):

Oh, not a good idea?

Ranger Ann (12:41):

… In a different plant, but I would rather eat shrimp than-

Charlie Rymer (12:44):

You’re safe right there. I got it.

Ranger Ann (12:45):

Am I?

Charlie Rymer (12:46):

Yeah, I got it.

Ranger Ann (12:47):

Always look behind you.

Charlie Rymer (12:48):

Look at there.

Ranger Ann (12:49):

Oh, look at that cast.

Charlie Rymer (12:50):

Yeah. I got that in the surf zone right there.

Ranger Ann (12:54):

That is nice.

Charlie Rymer (12:57):


Ranger Ann (12:57):

That is nice. And now, all about fishing is just hang out, talk, wait.

Charlie Rymer (13:02):

So sitting here like this for six hours isn’t going to help anything?

Ranger Ann (13:07):

It could solve the world’s problems. Woo.

Charlie Rymer (13:10):

Are you going to be amazed if I caught one? What do I got there? I got something.

Ranger Ann (13:15):

First cast. First cast.

Charlie Rymer (13:19):

I got it. I got it. Look at there. It didn’t take me long at all. Let me tell you what I got there, folks. That’s that tiger headed minnow I was telling you about.

Ranger Ann (13:26):

That’s a croaker.

Charlie Rymer (13:26):

Oh, that’s not a tiger headed minnow?

Ranger Ann (13:27):

I love croakers. Now, it’s a croaker and if we’re lucky it’s going to croak with its swim bladder. So it’s a croaker.

Charlie Rymer (13:35):

I’ve heard him croak.

Ranger Ann (13:37):

He hasn’t croaked, but they have a swim bladder that helps keep them going up and down the water. Did you hear it?

Charlie Rymer (13:40):


Ranger Ann (13:40):


Charlie Rymer (13:43):

Let me tell you how this works. She baited my hook, expert cast, within seven seconds I brought in this massive croaker. Hold it up real close to the camera.

Ranger Ann (13:52):

Oh, it’ll be bigger.

Charlie Rymer (13:54):

Yeah. Look how big that sucker is.

Ranger Ann (13:56):

What a nice croaker.

Charlie Rymer (14:00):

That’s walk off right there.

Ranger Ann (14:01):

All right.

Charlie Rymer (14:02):


Ranger Ann (14:03):

Well, are you going to release it?

Charlie Rymer (14:05):

I’m done.

Ranger Ann (14:05):

Aren’t you going to release it? We got to release it, Charlie.

Charlie Rymer (14:07):

Let’s go ahead. Release it.

Ranger Ann (14:08):

It’s very important. You want to release it?

Charlie Rymer (14:08):

No, it’s yours.

Ranger Ann (14:10):

Because we always want to think about the future. Oh, he’s croaking. I don’t know if you heard him.

Charlie Rymer (14:17):

It’s hard to hold back talent folks.

Ranger Ann (14:23):

I never would’ve seen that happen. So one of my favorite things to do besides fishing off the pier, is to put out a crab trap. You never know what we’ll catch. And a lot of times we won’t catch a meal, but we could catch a big diversity. We could catch hermit crabs, crabs, snails.

Charlie Rymer (14:49):

I love that.

Ranger Ann (14:51):

So I don’t know, we’ll see what we catch.

Charlie Rymer (14:53):

Oh, we got something. What do we got? Is that a conch?

Ranger Ann (14:57):

Oh, is it a conch? I think not. We’re not in south Florida.

Charlie Rymer (15:00):

We got a big one. We got a little one.

Ranger Ann (15:02):

We’ve got a… Oh, this is cool.

Charlie Rymer (15:04):

What is that? Can we eat it?

Ranger Ann (15:04):

Well it is-

Charlie Rymer (15:10):

What in the world is that?

Ranger Ann (15:11):

It’s called a whelk.

Charlie Rymer (15:13):

Oh a whelk. I was close on conch.

Ranger Ann (15:15):

Yeah. So conch’s are just in southern Florida into the Caribbean.

Charlie Rymer (15:17):


Ranger Ann (15:19):

So this is a whelk. Here’s the slimy foot.

Charlie Rymer (15:22):

I’m going to take your word for that.

Ranger Ann (15:24):

Pretty cool.

Charlie Rymer (15:31):

What’s that thing shooting poison at me?

Ranger Ann (15:33):

No, it’s just shooting water. But basically, it’s a little scared. So also a predator, if it was coming to eat it, it might, what did you do? You backed off.

Charlie Rymer (15:42):

It scared me, right?

Ranger Ann (15:44):

Yeah. So we have a whelk, and these whelks, this is the skeleton. This animal will continue growing his shell. It can’t leave.

Charlie Rymer (15:50):

What do they get up, 60, 70 pounds or something like that?

Ranger Ann (15:54):

I think like this big.

Charlie Rymer (15:54):

Oh, about that big.

Ranger Ann (15:55):

Yeah. So you can see the foot coming out.

Charlie Rymer (15:58):

Right. It’s not very happy.

Ranger Ann (15:59):

Well, it’s a little scary. And then this guy, I don’t know if either of these are males or females. This is a hermit crab.

Charlie Rymer (16:06):


Ranger Ann (16:06):

And a hermit crab, so if this snail, this whelk would die… This is a channel whelk. If this snail would die, then a hermit crab will move into the shell because they have to find shells to protect their soft bodies.

Charlie Rymer (16:17):

They don’t make their own shell?

Ranger Ann (16:18):

These do not make their own shells. These make their own shell. Right here, this is how big the snail was when it was born. It’s added skeleton, calcium carbonate shell as it’s gotten bigger.

Charlie Rymer (16:27):

So I’m going to pull for this one because it does more work. This one here, the hermit crab, is just a thief.

Ranger Ann (16:32):

Well, maybe. I guess it’s how you think of it. And these are different than the hermit crabs you buy in the stores. Those are land hermit crabs from Caribbean, Central America, Ecuador. These live in the ocean their entire lives. You cannot mix the two.

Charlie Rymer (16:44):

So on a serious note, if I were here with my kids when they were a little younger, they would be wanting to keep these two critters. Is that allowed or would you want to?

Ranger Ann (16:52):

Well, you don’t really want to because you got to have a saltwater aquarium.

Charlie Rymer (16:56):


Ranger Ann (16:57):

And so depending on where you live, if you don’t have a saltwater aquarium, you can’t keep them. So I’m always, again, I’m a park ranger. I’m always about appreciating the animals and then releasing them for the future generation so we can have more.

Charlie Rymer (17:08):

Well, you know what? Let’s put them back in that basket.

Ranger Ann (17:10):


Charlie Rymer (17:11):

Because I’m sure you could throw them down there, but that seems a little scary, so let’s give them a friendly release.

Ranger Ann (17:16):

How exciting.

Charlie Rymer (17:18):

You guys gave us a good time, we’ll take care of you. And you know what, I think I enjoyed that as much as I did catching the fish.

Ranger Ann (17:30):

It’s pretty fun, right?

Charlie Rymer (17:30):

Yeah. That’s awesome.

Ranger Ann (17:31):

Because you never know what you’ll catch.

Charlie Rymer (17:32):

Never know. So I hate to interrupt you guys, but you look like you want to play Myrtle Beach State Park Ambush Trivia. Are you in or you out?

Speaker 5 (17:44):

We’re in.

Charlie Rymer (17:45):

Perfect. Okay. Three questions. If you get three questions right, you get these saintnine golf balls. Any golfers?

Speaker 6 (17:51):

Yeah, a little bit.

Charlie Rymer (17:51):

A little bit?

Speaker 6 (17:52):

A little bit. Not a whole lot.

Charlie Rymer (17:54):

Oh, okay. Now where are you guys in from?

Speaker 5 (17:57):

Canada. Ottawa, Ontario.

Charlie Rymer (17:58):

All right. That’s awesome. Let’s play question number one. According to USGA rules, what is a maximum number of clubs you can have in your bag?

Speaker 5 (18:13):

Is there a time limit on this?

Charlie Rymer (18:14):

No. Look at the smoke coming out of his ears. You see that smoke coming out of his ears? Oh, he’s counting his up, 5, 7, 9, 11, 12, 13. How many?

Speaker 5 (18:26):

Okay, come on. Say a number.

Speaker 6 (18:26):

I think 13.

Speaker 5 (18:30):

Let’s go with 13.

Charlie Rymer (18:31):

Lucky number 13. Okay, you all are one off. Maximum of 14.

Speaker 5 (18:36):

14, oh pretty close.

Charlie Rymer (18:37):

Maybe 13 in Canada. I need to check.

Speaker 5 (18:38):

We were close.

Charlie Rymer (18:40):

Yeah, and I think it’s 14 everywhere. Okay, you’re off to a good start. It’s time to… You bogeyed number one. Let’s see if we can get a birdie on two. Okay, what endangered species makes its nest along the Myrtle Beach State Park beaches in the summer?

Speaker 7 (18:55):


Speaker 5 (18:55):

Let’s go with turtles.

Charlie Rymer (18:56):


Speaker 5 (18:57):

Final answer?

Charlie Rymer (18:59):

You got that right. More specifically, the Loggerhead sea turtles. Those are the big ones. So we got to be careful around here because we need those things around for a long time. All right, one and one. Okay, you got to get two more right to get the golf balls. Which of the four major tournaments has Rory McIlroy yet to win? So there’s four majors. Rory McIlroy has won three.

Speaker 5 (19:22):

Let’s go with Masters.

Charlie Rymer (19:23):

There you go. Boy, I tell you what, you say you don’t play golf, but you got right on that one.

Speaker 5 (19:30):

I’m pretty quick.

Charlie Rymer (19:31):

Okay. Okay, so you’re two and one. Two and one.

Speaker 5 (19:33):

We knew that one.

Charlie Rymer (19:34):

Okay, so Myrtle Beach State Park was the first South Carolina State Park created under which president? A, Franklin D Roosevelt, B, Dwight D Eisenhower, C, Jimmy Carter?

Speaker 5 (19:47):

I’m going to have to go with A.

Speaker 6 (19:48):

No, no.

Speaker 5 (19:50):

What, no? Oh, I think it’s A. I think it’s A.

Speaker 5 (19:54):

I think it’s A.

Charlie Rymer (19:55):

… Delano Roosevelt.

Speaker 7 (19:57):

The second one was Eisenhower.

Speaker 5 (19:59):

I vote A.

Charlie Rymer (20:00):

The second one was Eisenhower.

Speaker 5 (20:00):

I vote A.

Charlie Rymer (20:00):

FDR, you’re going with?

Speaker 7 (20:01):


Charlie Rymer (20:02):

All right, you all are three and one. You get the golf balls.

Speaker 6 (20:06):

Thank you.

Charlie Rymer (20:10):

Yeah, I don’t know what you contributed.

Speaker 6 (20:12):

I didn’t do a-

Charlie Rymer (20:12):


Speaker 6 (20:12):

… That part.

Charlie Rymer (20:12):


Speaker 5 (20:12):

I thought he would be the lucky charm there.

Charlie Rymer (20:14):

Okay. Okay. We’re going to have just have one more question, see how we do. We’re at a state park. This might be related to wildlife. In golf, what do you call a score on a hole that is three under par. It’s the rarest of birds. Have you seen any eagles lately? Right, so they’re not very rare. This is the rarest of birds. I bet you’ve never seen one.

Speaker 5 (20:41):

Yep, probably not.

Charlie Rymer (20:42):

Because in golf we call it an albatross. That’s when you make a one on a four or a two on a five.

Speaker 7 (20:52):

I thought they were completely extinct.

Charlie Rymer (20:53):

They might be. In golf, they’re not. They’re just very rare. Well, we appreciate you all coming down from Canada. Thank you.

Speaker 5 (20:58):

Thank you.

Charlie Rymer (20:59):

All right. Hope you enjoy your trip. Thank you very much.

Speaker 5 (21:02):

Thank you.

Charlie Rymer (21:03):

All right, appreciate it. Thank you. If you’ve enjoyed visiting Myrtle Beach State Park as much as I have, check out a park nearby next time you travel to South Carolina. From the mountains to the coast, there’s bound to be a state park near you. Visit for more info.


End of another great day here in Myrtle Beach. You know what that means? Yep, time to grab a sweet tea and unwind down by the water. These times are tough on many levels. The best thing we can do for ourselves is listen to other people and there’s no better place to do that than on the golf course. Make it a point to start a conversation with somebody new. Ask about them. Everybody’s got a story to tell. I’ll bet if you do that, you learn something and you make a new friend. Hope you’ve enjoyed the Charlie Rymer Golf Show and keep it in the fairway folks.
