I spoke to Todd, who’s one of the creators and voice actors in the show. He refers to it as “Blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moments of intimacy”. The core of the show are the comments we make during a round but which we probably won't make under any other circumstances, and topics which definitely falls under the “What happens on the golf course stays on the golf course” category. And then we come home and the wife asks what we talked about, and the answer is “Nothing”.
He also explained the production process, which I found very interesting. They record the conversations in the cartoon while actually playing a round of golf. They have microphones on them on the course, and then they edit the sound and put the cartoons on top of them. They have a basic topic in mind for a particular show, but most of it is ad libbed as they get into character and tee off. He said they found this method to give it a very authentic feel, much more so than if they wrote a word-by-word script. Also, it gets them on to the fabulous Eagle Falls course at the Fantasy Springs Resort in Palm Springs Valley, and if that’s not a good boondoggle I don’t know what is.
The show starts March 1:st on FoxSports.com. The guys are clearly huge golf fans, and I encourage everyone to check them out on line and when the show starts.
