Talking Sports and Fitness with Zeke
About This Show
Who inspires you to stand strong? To dream huge? To do more? Nothing is more compelling than an athlete who stares failure in the face, cracks a smile and keeps on pushing. Sports are not a competition. They are a pact between athletes to drive, and shove; to never slow down or let up until each shines as an embodiment of the success they chase.
Sports are not a test of physical ability. They are what happens when physical ability is driven past the limit; when strength is fire-fused into the sheer will to walk from flame victorious. To walk from flame as victory itself.
If you feel as strongly about sports as Mike “Zeke” Zielinski does, then gear up and tune in for Talking Sports and Fitness with Zeke.

Zeke talks to Chip Lutz Part One
< 1 day ago
Chip Lutz, a member of the LedgeRock Golf Club, shares with Zeke the story of his remarkable golf year and his amazing success as one of the top senior amateurs in the world. "The last seven years I have taken my golf game to a whole new level," Lutz tells Zeke. "One of my goals when I became a senior at age 55 was to bring my game up and become competitive at that level. No. 55 was a magic number for me as I prepared to be competitive at that point and it has been a success for me." Lutz, 61, talks to Zeke about capturing his third British Senior Amateur title this summer at England's Formsby Golf Club in thrilling fashion, birdieing the first hole of a three-way sudden death playoff, and being the only amateur to make the cut in the U.S. Senior Open at Scioto Country Club in suburban Columbus, Ohio -- finishing in a tie for 37th. "It was a thrilling finish in the British Senior Amateur," Lutz tells Zeke. "I played well enough to enter into a three-way tie. In the playoff they play the 18th hole repeatedly until there is a winner. As it turns out, I managed to get it done on the first try. The greens are different over there. There are a lot more refinements and different approaches to the game." Lutz also shares with Zeke his disappointment about his play in the U.S. Senior Amateur Championship in St. Louis. Lutz, the defending champion, advanced to match play by shooting a 7-over 149 after 36 holes to place 45th -- with the top 64 advancing. But he lost in the round of 32 at Old Warson Country Club, losing in match play to 2012 champ Paul Simson 5-and-3. Lutz also has won two Canadian Senior Amateur titles.
