Everybody. Take out eight. Accepted. Me I'll take out there yeah. DJs from home 15, clubs attorney that's coffee. That's so scummy, are, you kidding. Kick. Them off the tour. A. Lot. Of people skip past Colin on their way to from. Cruden Bay to castle. Stewart and Aaron and Inverness that area if you're just trying to hit the top you, know ten courses of Scotland or whatever if you're berry bag if you're berry bag tag. You're. Gonna you're gonna go right past but, I would say get, off the beaten path go. You, know go on your own adventure, go to a new place with no expectations. And see, what happens. The. Chandelier. Talk. To me about your expectations. Going into Colin. Zero. Had none, I knew spike forty three hundred yards and I was flying blind, I had no idea what we were getting into even, if we had expectations they, would have been blown out on, the first tee basically. I, think, it was just we, couldn't really even. Prepared, for what it was because it was so different than everything else that we saw I knew Cohen was gonna be different when. Actually. Right when we got there and Randy was climbing up the the damn aqueduct, or whatever it was called our handy seems to be on, the struggle bus a little bit trying to get down this tell. I. Knew. It was different we got there I took the drone out and just kind of did some overall, aerials, of it but I had I couldn't, understand, where. You played to some of these greens I'm like okay well that that that must be like a practice screen because you can't hit over the rocks to get to the green it. Turns out you can hit over the rocks to get to the creek because that's how the course is laid out we did a six Club challenge do. You think that was like in hindsight I think that was perfect, yeah yeah I think I, think six is great I mean honestly it kind of led to Tudor. On and I playing a half set for most, of the rest of the trip it's.

Got. Six clubs it's not a lot of fun you, have to do some pulling and carving. Look. Look, listen. Buying. The minimalism, final. Verdict driver, 300 six. Eight pitching, wedge Clark, we, would 5-iron for, iron 8-iron, 60. And 50 -. What's. Up put me yet gonna take one more out. It's. Been watching who is George man. That's kind of a philosophical question. George. Is whoever you want him to be he's the kind of. The club secretary GM. De facto maintenance, team multi time club, champion, like 25 years apart, but most important that I think George, is just a lover of, Cullen. Yeah he grew up playing there he's played there kind of forever, and. It's. Funny every hole that you get to with him as you're playing with him he's got some story about you. Know when I was 12 this happened, when I was 20 this happened now I made three whole ones here I've done this here and it's, just it's awesome it reminds you a lot of like the course where you grew up and what it, would look like if you could kind, of stay there forever and keep, working there forever it's kind of a cool cool. Vibe. What. He tells one first well. The main thing it was originally, designed by Old Tom Morris which. Is a big attraction is, I looking for the history of the game well, this is where it all started, really we think it's the shortest, through likes golf course in the world. It's. Not short hauls it's, just that there's a lot of par threes so, the holes themselves I'm not sure it's, just a short golf course. Brady. Good life you'll yell play a few plays. Many as you want yeah so, we played with Jorge we had a great round with Jorge he is, a very. Stereotypically. Scottish. You know slow burn. Kind. Of dry well, I think he thought we were making fun of him for a long time I think we kept saying how much we loved the golf course and, I think he kind of kept being like yeah. He's just very modest, like come on no way you guys this, place is not that it's short, and it's weird and we're like no this, is what we like we, love it so the first hole send yeah it's it's kind of a nothing hole like, you see a lot in Scotland, is kind, of almost feels like a warm-up hole a little bit and you. Get to number two and. It's, the first time of many that you're you're, not really sure of which green you're supposed to hit at because. You think there's no way that they're. Actually routing, you directly. Like 50 feet up this hill on this hundred and twelve yard shot or something number two is pretty outrageous. That, hole is, still. Wrapping, my head around that it's, kind of like they just said alright we have to get up this ridge let's just make a golf ball that doesn't make any sense at all point, it straight up this slope and just, hope the people getting hit 115, yards but straight up it straight up in the air par 63, if we get it moving we can, have round in the 60s on this trip are. We in the nest always. Naturally. In the net I'm. Just trying to break 80. So. You can only see the top of the flag it's a completely blind shot it's, like a 15-foot, fly yeah yeah it's a giant oversized, flag and you have zero, idea, what the green does what's beyond it it's. Just it's Looney tune so it's awesome proper, sized flag. It's. Pretty. Pretty, dialed right now. All. Right so we're playing from the 40. Past. On the scenery just. Above. That hill about 130, yard little par 3. So. Holds, 236, you play up on top of the ridge and there's just majestic, views of the ocean and back to town and then, you get to 70 box and it's another hole where it's. Like wait a second, where are we going, and then. You realize and, full George would kind of do this thing where you just kind of like point like yeah that's the green down there you're like. It. Was the 7th, that's. Up in the high point then the coup off there you get the view of the sea and the whole golf course the most dramatic example, of hitting directly. Downhill, that you'll that you'll see and so it's, maybe a 220. 230 hour chop it plays. 195. One, day I need something like that coming down the ridge from the 7th tee you felt like you could hop, on one of those hang gliders it, just it does feel like you're flying when you get that tee shot and just goes off in the air it just feels like it's. Kind of like when they're at the front of the boat and Titanic, it's like I'm flying jack that's how I felt the playground, of Collin kind of opens up to you and you start looking at the only way you can describe it is it almost feels like you're in like the Colorado red.

Rocks Or something except there's an ocean right there as well it's just it's it's, like a dr., Seuss book or. Something it's it's insane. Geologically. It's probably what happened but it almost seems like the, lower part of the land just broke off into the ocean and you have just these two completely different, landscapes. And some, of the rock formations, are left right in the middle and I I just I give a shout out to the creativity of how you design golf holes around that thing it's not how anyone, would have pictured doing it but, the use of these I don't, want to say use of the land but the use of these rock formations is what I probably remember the most from it there's. A birdie for Sally. Yep, it is. Oh. No. Fish. Out there George. 3:11, burn in the front George you recommend going for this one yeah you've gotta go over it's a long enough hit us to throw you all. Right no. Hang out. Like, I got bullied in a hidden driver but it's. All about knowing you're, running no, you're running. Oh just. A little wrong wrong, flag birdie for Sally. Wrap. The deck. Road. Off. The. Rock. Oh. Gosh. Oh my god. Good. Shot. Been playing here for fifty five years how many aces, like. Four races in this course okay, five, in total. Which. Holds did us out here, second. Fourth. Sixth. And thank. You surf team thumb do you thought that an ace at the blind hole but in fact the, ball was picked up and put in the hole by somebody. And. I would watch, my own who is. We. Also got to mention the cave on on 11 which I was right behind the green apparently we asked what was in there I think maybe maybe, the teenagers use it for some for some sketches for some nefarious activities. I was hoping that's where the bogeyman live. You. Describe till about 13 back to back par threes and you just hit over these like big. Rocks and, crags and through these crevasses. I kind of thought George is just messing with us on some of these shots like yeah hit it the pin is probably over that little stick that you see over that rock it just it didn't make any sense that you would just have back-to-back blind. Par threes you're playing over, the greens that you just played and, some. Of the videos I look back at Tron getting ready to tee off and I'm afraid he's gonna like hit the flag from the previous hole. What. Where is it can you just point to it. There's. A flog over there okay. I thought it was on top of this thing. Yeah. Truly. A blind like yeah like you just have no idea what's up their constant, surprises. We. Go straight, at the top of the hook straight at the top of the hotel, totally fine how long. 1:52. Is. Not this big. Now. There's look cool. That. Time. To eat dinner, so. Now. Where the hell are we going on this one yeah, just, see the flaw they're just, peeking, around the corner they're. Trolling, are tied you, guys are tied I'm at three over net. Here. Why. Get. Up. And, a birdie for the big guy. All. Right he's whipping his chicken down this, break. 80. Johnny. You've been in this situation many times what is going through, DJ's. Mind oh. Me. Oh. Yeah. Now he's. Thinking. About all the ways it can go wrong mine. Turning very quickly I. Think. What he's really parking. Back to her horrible. Missed, putts short, in the ducts and. Wondering. How. Nancy. Has not evacuated, himself just yet. Here. Solder here at the 18th he. Knows he he really has to make a birdie dear. It's. Up oh. I. Was. Going in. Putting. For, the wind. It. Surprisingly, small crowd for this moment. Good. Putt, you'll. Put a coin on that like a tour. Sauce coin. You. Know I really, my pants down the stretch, straight. Up I'm, not you know not pleased with it. Gave. It a great run yeah yeah. He wasn't playing for a second oh. Yeah. If, we run one hole. Yeah. All right gonna, put the first you want a plate of that green. All. Right well good we'll get out of the gate yeah yep, - you know. Let's go the first alright, cuz I like that went beyond that hole well no you're gonna drive that green and I'm not that's. All. Right here we go first Platteville we're, stuck with our cameras make it look. Swing-through. Fight house key it's hard not to be intimidated with what he just saw. Is. Finn this way right but. There's a ton of fairway over there ice actually hit it the hole he didn't want to play. DJ. Here was his second playing from the wrong hole. It's. A little deep in left I. Was. Best. It's. Gonna be a tough up and down from there folks. That's. Something for a chance to win. He's. Done it oh he hasn't done it, Wow. I'll. Take a look at that one.

Aaron. As a. Deserving. Champion. His. First victory here in this continent, let's. Go let's go to for just a minute was it what does it mean here uh. You. Know it's my first. It's. Been. Such a long battle. I've. Got so many people I need to fake, I can't. Even even, come up with words right now oh wow, there you have it guys what. A victory that was, fun listen, many people are. Gonna say that I choked it down the stretch there I would like to say I shouldn't have even been in that position in the first place I was. Playing way way, above, outside. Of my standard deviation it was a statistical, outlier to begin with hike regress, to the mean yeah, I think that's fair I think Solly came in gradually yeah for sure which we knew that was gonna happen for us okay I was. More or less still recovering, from you. Haven't caught me at, Cretan Bay those same footsteps that you heard a Cruden Bay DJ heard down the stretch at Collin just. You. Know I come before it's human nature so anyway after there now we all go in and have a couple beers in the quaint, little Clubhouse there and George's. Wife and joins us we're. Just sitting around the table you know making polite small talk and, I, forget who asked it but you. Know we asked and ate it so Andy you play golf at all and she, goes yeah I used to play a little bit but I don't play anymore let's count how many times she's. Up here on the board, oh. Right. Yes she, won three before oh there, you go alright so. Says. She, wins a couple then she marries Georgia. And. Then really takes him in she really takes off and. Clark just. Bringing. Home Championships. 1990. Do you remember that one. Well. So you would have won how, many in a row well, four. So. 86, so Finley was Yellin wanna beat you between. 1982. And, 1998. He's only a person, in it. You. Lost one person the. Whole time do, you remember either of those years that. Yeah, was. It closed coming down the stretch. No. Because it was, it wasn't, much play Oh stroke, or ancestral, and. But. By 1990. I was Maddie's Cubs living in Aberdeen so I wasn't playing nearly so much golf so. Okay. Hey. Thank you for having us today okay thanks any more thanks so much. Then. 11 out of 12 and the children, came along yeah. When. We were leaving we had what. We affectionately refer to as the beg alight I've. Never seen you so giddy guys I gotta go grab my camera I gotta go. I'm gonna and then he runs, out past the clubhouse meet shooting these shooting. The rock formations, off and. It. Was such a fun way to kind of cap the day and, it just meant you're already running so high, on this golf course that you've never a golf. Experience like unlike, anything you've ever seen and then it, just gets draped in this crazy. Good, light. That it's just it's it's, really really really hard to be does. Not feel like any course I've played in my entire life, it's. Almost like it's. Almost sounds, like I'm saying something bad about it when I say it's not golf but it's not golf in the way you would picture golf being at least the way that I picture golf you, have to get, rid of that your preconceived, notion of what golf is and go out and just like give. It a whack around this field and, enjoy the hell out of it and that's what we did suspended. Disbelief yeah you're not going here because the conditioning, is great you're not going here because of you, know some spectacular, routing. You're going there because you want to have as much. Fun as you possibly can playing. Golf and I think that was kind of our take away yeah, like you said that the, the. Red Rocks the ocean, the small little fishing village back. Behind. You it just. Yeah. I've never felt that anywhere else it's, just a weird mixture. Of all these elements that was extremely. Cool I think I can be a bit of a bag tag Barry too, often it for my own admission, but. What makes Scotland, so great is there's just so many top courses that you, don't have to ping-pong around from different parts of the country you can focus on certain regions, and it's, important to play the best courses in those areas but also get a at a mix out of a variety of courses that is, more like a typical Scottish course and again, it's easy to look at those top 20 lists and want to play them all and we all want to but experiences. Like Colin are vital. To, experiencing. What golf and Scotland's really likes you can kind of throw a stone and hit an interesting, golf course up, in that neck of the woods that's, a little bit underappreciated, so, get out there and explore, crack.

On I hate cheese mousse that was a hell, maybe. The best, when. It's on beat I really, didn't think it was could, get better than Ely and then. We met George and then we met George my, life change. Where. We play Castle, Stewart right now in, the car park, well this was few feeling oh that's right big people little world. First. And I would certainly wanted to forget but yeah backside you know got on the chicken let it out of its coop he's really riding it around there free-range, style.

Comments:

Who are you guys acknowledging with the little hand waves after made putts? LOL Ultimate wannabe sauce.

I'm really glad that you Guys enjoyed Cullen so much, but I must ask if you sampled the local delicacy "Cullen Skink"?

I’ve no idea how the amount of subscribers is so low. This channel is amazing. A hidden gem

Cullen & Boat of Garten are my 2 favourite courses for pure fun, great to see you having a blast & hopefully there are more visitors to these wee gems.

For several years I always thought “wow, these guys are so similar to me it’s crazy” and then I see they are singing/rapping along to “Forgot About Dre” and my mind was officially blown. Not similar,.... EXACTLY LIKE ME! Love the content

Best one yet!

Don’t change boys, this is incredible

Live chat during premiers = Just roast the FUQ out of Randy’s slope descent ability Kidding, the live chat is where to be when you’re in math with nothing to do. #doitforthecontent

F-Yes! The broadcasting in the backswing is legendary the post round interview so great. The venue was intense. Captured the vibe of the club so well. Great Job

Find you someone who looks at you the way Tron looks at Soly.

George is awesome! His swing reminds me of Pete Finch’s dad’s swing.

Your guys podcast and videos make my day every time I watch and listen keep it up

Absolute banger of an episode from start to finish. Well done boys!

On the next episode of "Uncomfortably Close with Tron and Soly"... Great stuff as usual!

Another gem. Great stuff.

Soly going full Burnley/West Ham on the past two vlogs is, quite frankly, one of the weirdest things I’ve ever seen on a golf course. What was he thinking?

i'm starting to think shiskine's coming...

This is one of the best series’ of all time. Any medium, not just YouTube. Keep it up boyos!

Based on his swing I think George and Hosung Choi may be long lost relatives

Love the work guys!! Gutted that I didn’t realise you guys were heading through my home town of Elgin.

5th graders could do considerably better.

More of Randy walking down hills please.

What sort of equipment is used to capture content like this?

Well done - just top class - ever thinking of Ireland - contact me

DJ Pie’s club twirls are serious. Performance enhancing twirls!

DJ and Soly are now all square after Pie killed him with those Dre lyrics. Great series, guys. Really enjoying each one.

Great video gents. Played Cullen many times whilst growing up in Aberdeen. Many gems off the beaten track in that area, Stonehaven and Westhill are two I grew up playing alot.

Too good

I’ve been waiting for this since the 2nd part of the Scotland podcast. The description intrigued me, but I didn’t look it up...hoping you’d show some of it on TS. I am blown away. I love the quirks of the course routing and landscape,, DJ bucking his head a la Icarito, and Large Randall repelling down the aqueduct. Tourist Sauce is my must see content...thank you for that. Please release outtakes and stuff that didn’t make the final cut.

R.I.P The Oak Club @DJ

Exactly. Golf course couldn't be more different, but for some reason that's still what it reminded me of.

Michael Scott and Big Randy are the two best fictional characters in American history.

Big Randy> stew hagestad

"darker than our cameras make it look" / "hard not to be intimidated with what he just saw" both on the same tee box. Soly is officially foreshadowing the next NLU series: "Back to the Booth" ....You cant script this.

is music @ 24:55 on spotify?

where is this crappy music from? almost makes me hate this season.

We may drive on the opposite side of the road however we still take stairs /embankments the same way. Big Randy for the second time looking like a newly born giraffe unsure what his legs are for.

One of my favourites. So quirky and the views are amazing. Real value for money too

My favourite series ever! Love to see you boys come over here and really get it. This is Scottish golf at its finest. Did not think many golfers from across the pond would really get it and enjoy and appreciate it. Thanks guys, much much more please!

Are the greens on all of these courses as pure as they look? I've looked up the cost of the courses you have played on this tour and most are extremely reasonable. I am surprised at the condition of the greens with what they charge.

North of Scotland is fantastic for playing Golf. There are many many course's of equal and better than the course's they have played What's more you can get a day ticket on some truly awesome course's for less that £30.00.

Randy needs to add to his bio "Semi professional mountain goat"

humble brag with the Shinny/US Open headcover

Hey guys I’m 14 about a two handicap you may never read this but your channel has encouraged me to play more tour sauce and continue to make golf fun! Ipractice everyday then get home and listen to a podcasts you guys are awesome!!

The pimp-step + early tee grab by DJ on the playoff hole (18:29) becomes even more incredible when you realize it was a wipe 70 yards right of his target.

I no longer rate my shots on the result, but rather the quality of the tour sauce. Last week I sent one 150 yards right, across a lake and into somebody's swimming pool, but I was ecstatic because the pose, club twirl and tee grab was seamless.

D.J. Piehowski hey! Not OB. I understand the enthusiasm.

Dress for the drive you want, not the drive you have.

Its like The Lorax and Hobbit got together and designed a golf course!

No Carnoustie on this trip? I love that you guys sought out interesting courses. Keep it up!

No Laying Up Excuses haha. Still a great trip. You could play a course every day for a month and not get them all! Icharito must be so jealous...

Turns out they had a tournament going on while we were there...

Didn't get through three minutes of this video before I had to file an FCC Complaint for the S-bomb DJ let fly.

Is everything OK with Randy? His combined struggles walking downhill between this episode and the steps at Cruden Bay I'm officially concerned.

"Standard deviation..statistical outlier." DJ went full Fawcett, you never go full Fawcett #DECADE

Next week DJ will be using satellites, driving decision trees and beefing with Zac Blair and Fried Egg on Twitter.

You should have tried Cullen Skink which is a creamy fish soup.

Awesome

That's primarily what I subsisted on the entire season.

oh there was pleeeeenty of Cullen Skink had this season

DJ: "I'm only commenting to try and win golf balls." Randy: "That's scummy. That's so scummy. Are you kidding? Kick him out of the comment section."

Glad that Randy has bounced back so well from a tough loss to Lyin’ Ted this past fall

"It's really not that hard of a rock"

If you could figure out a way to monetize this your production value would go way up.

Cant get enough of Tourist Sauce! Love what you guys are doing. Keep cranking out that great content. P.S. especially looking forward to Strapped season 2.

Deck driver to twirl was SAUCY, Tronald.

Why do you guys insist on premiering.... I just get excited then disappointed that I have to wait. Then I get excited again. But its not nice of you to play games.

John Kervin They said that the live chat is so worth it, it really is

hold up ** have you just put a 4 iron and 5 iron into your 6 club bag

That reaction from George when DJ asked if he wanted to play along.

YOU GUYS HAVE INSPIRED ME TO START MY OWN CHANNEL AND MAKE BETTER CONTENT. THANK YOU

The last part was great. Proud of DJ for that. Silly what the hell were those hands doing

8:17 our mans Tron with the 100 yard stare straight into my soul gave me the heebie jeebies

Come for the Tourist Sauce at Cullen, stay for the carpool karaoke with Soly and DJPie

Love it, super hype, light was sick, course and George n Anne killing it, can't wait to be better and go those few hours north to play this legendary region.

@10:27 can some tech person please make a gif of Big Randy!? Siiiiick.

Including babies and the elderly, Cullen has a pop of 1,300. How many pints had you had to not realize that Anne Clarks dominance, although impressive, wasn't 10% of the freaking video impressive?

Soly Erik Anders Lang and Sia would like to have a word.....

Loved this video. The course looks really fun. I really appreciate that you guys enjoyed it even though it is not a "big name" place. Also it's cool that you got to play in our crazy dry summer giving you a unique experience. What do think of Tennants lager?

This place looks amazing! Thanks for introducing it to us!

What a cool little course

+Mango Man This should win the contest, send this man the TruVis

Accompanied by "It's only blind the first time you see it" from Cracking Cruden

Mickey Ericson, you're not the only one! Icarito babyyyyyy!

Soly playing off a massive block as going at the wrong flag. Sauce adjacent?

Are my speakers blown or shitty? Voice overs are poor quality audio big time ?

You called the course and the experience "suspended disbelief" Thats me watching Randy on that hill

No Laying Up all the club's I listed ... I don't use the odd 1s as I'm odd enough man

The 4 and 5 iron came out. All of those clubs listed came out.

Cullen member: *Sees Anne Clark and realizes she's golf famous* Also Cullen member: OH MY GOD IT'S HARRISON FRAZAR

The "It's much darker than what the camera is showing." comment was great. HAHAHAHAHAHA

20$ says George’s wife would kick your butts on that course.

Soly's tour sauce wave after putting out has become so ingrained that he's actually serious also Tron should try playing golf with actual shafts in his clubs

The drone work in this series needs a special mention. Keep working boys, this is seriously impressive.

Hi guys, I am a fellow Scottish golfer living not far from St Andrews...I am a member at Aberdour Golf Club, I think you guys might like this stat, I'm not sure but i would think it has to be a world record, A guy called Stuart Meiklejohn he has won the club championship 29 times ! , Next time you are in Scotland it would be worth coming to the course for a round and maybe try and get a chat with him, the course is not a links course but has 4 holes that go along the sea / coast line, and was voted Scotlands 4th best golfing experience in Bunkered magazine

Look at Soly's commitment to #content at 11:10.

Kley De Jong hell yeah!
