Jay Revell
Hi, my name is Jay Revell and golf is a massive part of my life. Lately, I've begun to worry that it might consume too much of it. With a young family, a startup media business, and a scratch handicap, I explore what it means to be addicted to golf in the modern world. On the show, I dive into the good, bad, ugly, and glorious in conversations with folks battling to find a balance between golf, life, and everything in between. Join me for conversations with some of golf's most interesting folks as we discuss just how much the game means to us all. Welcome to Mid-Am Crisis.
Episode details

Joe Zwickl is one of the most interesting men in golf these days. If there is a gathering of golfing diehards going down somewhere there is a good chance he's going to show up. Zwickl is often found hitting long drives and talking about the game at events hosted by No Laying Up, The Buck Club, and other golfing collectives. I first met him at such an outing and have since enjoyed rounds with him at a variety of golf destinations across the South. He's the exact sort of golfer I like getting in trouble with. Zwickl tends to stand out in the crowd too, he's a tall lad with tattoos and some serious game, and his story is just as interesting as his style. Based in Pinehurst, North Carolina there is nobody more equipped to show you around the Sandhills than him. With a background in the culinary industry, he also knows his way around a kitchen and can give you great restaurant recommendations for anywhere golf is played. I've been fortunate to call Zwickl a friend for a few years now and I'm looking forward to the next walk we can take together. Until then, I'm glad we got to catch up for a chat as he was getting ready to meet up with nearly 100 golf sickos at Zac Blair's Ringer event at Sweetens Cove Golf Club. If I had to bet he made a few new friends while there.
