27: Going From Good To Great
The difference is practice. And Jeff Smith will explain how "good golfers practice until they do it right. Great golfers practice until they can't do it wrong! Listen for some great tips on how to fit in the practice you don't do now without giving up golf time, family time or skipping work. At least not skipping work too often!
26: The Perfect Golf Vacation
So John, the guy who gets to play golf as often as he wants, doesn't even take his clubs on vacation but hangs out on the beach all week instead. Jeff, the PGA Professional who works on a golf course but doesn't play for fun often, takes 10 days in Scotland doing nothing but playing golf. Who had more fun? And who got the better tan? You listen, then decide.
25: Listen While We Play Golf
It's vacation time for the Golf Guys so we're off to play some golf. John made it up to Maine to play on Donald Ross's first ever course in the U.S. while Jeff heads off to Scotland to play the hallowed grounds of ST. Andrews, among others. This episode from last year is worth hearing again. Yes! It's The Best (that we could find) Of Those Weekend Golf Guys
24: Help For The Green Illiterate
For those of us who haven't the slightest idea where that ball is going to go once it leaves the putter face there is help! Pete Charleston, CEO of GolfLogix has a brand new app that will read the green for you. No more guessing left or right? Uphill or downhill? He joins us to talk putting and how this app can reduce, if not eliminate, 3 putts. We also talk about Phil Mickelson's latest rules faux pas and a whole lot more. Fun, funny and entertaining. That's us in a nutshell.

This sound familiar? Yet another green in regulation missed. That chip you need to replace what should have been your first putt needs to get close if you have any chance of making par. Well, you're in luck. Jeff Smith has some nifty tips to make sure that chip gets close enough. Maybe it will even check up! Yeah, we're talking spin here people.

22: This Advice Can Ruin Your Game
We've all heard the cliches... keep it under the wind, finish high, keep your head down, never up never in etc. Jeff Smith explains just how wrong most of this advice is and what it's doing to screw up your game, and of course, how to do it right. Better scores when you learn what advice to just ignore!
21: Games Golfers Play
Sometimes, or so it is rumored, golfers play for money; friendly wagers among friends. We discuss a few forms those games take including Wolf (and Jeff describes very well how to play and how to win at it!) and a brand new game, Vegas Golf. We talk to the inventor, Wayne Cimperman on how to play this cool, novel, and very fun game on the course.
20: Golf Is Hard Weed Makes It easier
We spend some quality time with golf architect, Bobby Weed. He started his career as an apprentice to Pete Dye. Spent years as the in-house architect for the PGA and is responsible for many of the TPC courses. Now he is building a course for Michael Jordan. Bobby understands that courses not only have to be challenging for scratch golfers and Pros but also have to be FUN for the high handicap amateur golfer. Also, Jeff shares a fool-proof, no fail, guaranteed technique to hit longer drives.
19: Lets Start A Movement
The first from our "Sundays Live" series of programs we broadcast live from Elk Run Golf Club in Jeffersonville Indiana. In talking on-air with the club's GM/Head Pro, we begin to encourage all golfers to move up to the Tees that best suit their game, not their age. Jeff Smith also encourages golfers to think this way: if you need more than a 7 iron to get to the green on a typical par 4 (after a decent drive) then you need to play from Tees more forward. The average amateur golfer hits...
18: These Are Not Ladies Balls
Wes Wittingham from Volvik explains why their balls are colored and why they began their rise to fame through the LPGA. Plus, John and Jeff have a slight disagreement about one of the USGA's new proposed rules changes.
