Kyle writes and podcasts for CBS Sports. He has covered 39 majors, four Ryder Cups and has written more words about the PNC Championship than perhaps any other human in history. Golf has produced a harvest of joy for him in the form of playing with friends but also in getting to travel the world to watch and write about others who play it. He lives in Texas with his wife and four kids.
Jason Page has been golfing and goofing around with image making since he was a kid. Those two loves combined with years of making unsolicited golf logos for online strangers snowballed into a career as golf-illustrator-at-large of Normal Sport, The Shotgun Start podcast and NLU among other collaborators. Like his golf game, he enjoys playing it loose with his illustrations and accepts when they go sideways into new (and often uncharted) territories. He’s shooting to bring more multilayered, open, colorful and playful narratives into golf storytelling. He lives in Amsterdam (NL) with his wife who couldn’t care less about golf.
A senior scribe for Golf Digest, Joel is one of the best longform golf writers and reporters in the game. Nobody has gone deeper or written with more aplomb on such divergent topics as the Chainsmokers, Cam from the Bronx and what LIV really wants. He lives in Connecticut with his wife and dog.
Porath is a writer and editor for The Fried Egg and a podcaster for the Shotgun Start. His BABIP on Twitter is Manny Ramirez-like, and nobody has a wider breadth in golf media. Porath has written at very unserious places like SB Nation but also reported for the New York Times and appeared on Golf Channel as an analyst. He lives in Maryland with his wife and four kids.
D.J. does a little bit of everything at No Laying Up and elsewhere in the golf world. His primary roles at NLU include film director and podcaster, but he has also contributed to the Golfer's Journal as a writer and formerly worked for the PGA Tour as a social media director. Nobody, not even Porter, is more addicted to the Spieth Experience than D.J. He lives in Wisconsin with his wife.
A writer and social media editor at Golf.com, Rogers has exploded on the golf scene over the last few years. Her fresh insight and original takes -- like pointing out that the only person on earth more exciting to watch play golf than Tiger is somehow his son -- are a delight. She lives in Massachusetts.
Barry is a globetrotter who doubles as an ace formatter and designer. He must be the only person who spent extended time playing golf in both Scotland and Hawaii in 2022. He lives seemingly everywhere.
Shane is a broadcaster for Golf Channel who has also spent time covering USGA events at FOX and as a writer at multiple outlets, including CBS Sports. He has called several U.S. Opens and an Olympics over the last few years and hosts his own podcast called Get a Grip. He is -- and it's not even very close -- the best golfer of this crew. He lives in Connecticut with his wife and two kids.
A mom of three who doesn't know the difference between the British Masters and the one in Augusta but can spot an Oxford comma from two miles away. Hannah is a part-time editor and aspires to write illustrated children's books someday. She lives in Oklahoma with her husband and three kids.
Phil has edited NLU podcasts for several years, and he produces and manages radio broadcasts for several college teams. He lives in North Carolina with his wife and kids.
Not necessarily a "golf guy" but loves sports in general. Jeff has worked with teams designing and building apps and websites for several years with the folks over at CrateBind. He lives in Texas with his wife and two kids.

Mobile: Click the link, click download and the zipped file should be in "files" on your phone (search for "files"). Once you find it, click the zipped file, it will unzip, and you can then import it into an audiobook player like BookPlayer or MP3 Books. It will unfortunately not open in Apple Books on iPhone.
I’m a big believer in scarcity. I’m asking you to pay a lot for a physical product, and because of that it should feel special. It should feel like only a limited number of people have the nice, handcrafted artifact you are holding. You should feel like you’re being treated to the five-star experience everyone at LIV received!
Sorry about that, we couldn't figure out how to make it work financially this year. Hopefully Jeff Bezos will purchase Whistleharp Publishing over the next few months and logistics become a lot easier. Until then, we hope you enjoy our digital products!
There are a few reasons, but the primary ones are 1. Amazon takes a preposterous cut of the revenue on digital books 2. This was mostly meant to be a standalone digital product because of how rich the illustrations are (it’s difficult to format it in such a way to make it pop on Kindle like it does as a PDF) and 3. I wanted to custom mail every hardcover copy and let my kids earn some money for helping in the process.
You can do that, although reading a PDF on your phone is a bit more straining because of how small the text is. This project -- because of how rich the illustrations are -- was always meant more bigger devices like iPads.
At checkout, you should get a download link (you may have to refresh your browser). If you don't see it, a download link will also be in your inbox.
You can email me at email@example.com.
The best way to do this is to just put their email in at checkout and pay for it. They'll receive a download link to their email, and you'll always be the person who introduced them to golden calves jokes about Phil and Vince Carter GIFs.
Oh I suppose. Perhaps I'm too trusting of folks, but I just presume most people will care enough about it to purchase it for themselves. If you work hard enough, you can steal most digital products. I'll never win that war. But I'm grateful for everyone who appreciates the time, effort and energy that were put into this project enough to throw $20 at it.
Jason Page. He’s incredible. Hire him if you have a project. You can find him on Twitter here.
Shea Serrano's excellent essays on The Office and Scrubs, which you can find here. He was the first person I recall saying, "Yo, I'm just going to make a digital book the way I want to make it." And of course, it was great.
