104: Conversation with 2 Great Golf Instructors

1/17/2021
Why would one of America’s top golf instructors live in Minnesota 12 months a year? Isn’t the average golf season about a month or two? Well, we asked Eric Chiles that very question. His answer is hilarious. We also asked many other questions like: do you follow the rules to the letter? How do you deal with a client who really doesn’t want lessons? What are the major mistakes you see among weekend golfers? Boxers or briefs? So basically the conversation between Jeff Smith, Eric Chiles, (both...

102: The Year's Most Listened To

1/3/2021
Back in October we came across a sign that came from a golf course in England. It was dated 1940 and delineated a set of “special rules” that were to be used because of the “unpleasantness” of the current situation. Yes! Even during the Battle Of Britain and amidst constant threat of German attach the golfers in Britain would not be deterred. They continued to hit the links regularly, but did adopt these new rules. The list, in retrospect, is hilarious! And it became the topic of our most...

93: Into The wind

11/8/2020
Whether hitting into the wind or flying into the wind, the resistance of the wind has a great effect on the flight. In fact, without that resistance, flight would be impossible.

Some folks seem to be surprised that Golf has flourished so well during this Covid-19 quarantine period. We really shouldn't be surprised. It seems that golf and golfers have adapted and flourished during much more serious emergencies, like WWII. We have a hilarious collection of temporary rules used at a course in England in 1940. Anyone want to hazard a guess the penalty for landing a ball to close to unexploded ordinance? We also share the labeling code for ProV1 balls so you can tell...

Don't write any checks your abilities cannot cash! We all know the guy who hits a decent drive to start a par 5. He strikes it 210, right down the middle. Now he stands there taking multiple practice swings with his 3 wood because he's 240 from the green and he's waiting for the group ahead to clear. They finally move off the green. He addresses the ball and takes one of those swings. The ball goes about 50 yards, never getting more than 10 feet off the ground. "We waited for that?" you all...
