James Davis Talk About His New Show On The Golf Channel


Via Golf Channel.com

Comedian James Davis has a passion for golf and on May 18, Davis is hitting the road for a trip across the southwest to check out unique golf courses in his docu-style comedy golf travel show “Golf Road Trippin” on GolfPass.

The six-episode series will feature Davis, 37, traveling to different courses throughout Southern California and Las Vegas to show the fun in golf while bringing a different flavor to the sport. On the show, Davis will highlight different courses that people may not know about and tell its story along with the unconventional people behind each course.

“Golf is really important to me, it’s my ultimate passion,” Davis said. “So this show is just a combination of the loves of my life which are comedy and entertainment and golf.

“It feels like I won a contest when I finally realized I was going to do the show.”

The South Los Angeles native played junior golf growing up and wanted to become a professional golfer. He went to golf camps at Stamford and Arizona State, where PGA Tour winner Paul Casey and Matt Jones were his counselors.

Davis received a full golf scholarship to Hampton University but chose to go to Claremont College because it was closer to home and he felt he could get a better education tailored to him there. He planned to walk on to Claremont’s golf team but ended up leaving school to pursue comedy.

On “Golf Road Trippin’,” Davis was excited about the two courses in Las Vegas he traveled to because one of his best friends from his junior golf days lives there and in one of the episodes they go to battle. Another episode Davis was excited about was filmed in Oceanside, California, where he once lived because his mom worked as a city attorney.

Because of the pandemic, the courses they traveled to on the show were limited to Southern California and Las Vegas.

Currently, Davis enjoys watching Justin Thomas but notes that Jordan Spieth is the must-watch player on the Tour right now. For the upcoming PGA Championship, he’s got Rory McIlroy and Thomas as the favorites to capture the Wanamaker Trophy.

Davis describes himself as an everyman who loves golf and watches the PGA Tour as much as anyone. He’s a good player, but not great. He plays a lot, but he wants to play more. He plays par-3 courses, but has also been invited to play at TPC Sawgrass and that’s the guy Davis said he’s being on the show.
