Take one of the country’s top golf instructors and pair him with an outstanding radio personality and you have the formula for one helluva Golf Talk Radio Show.
John Ashton (the show host) has enjoyed success as a morning personality on radio stations from Bangor, Maine to Dallas, Texas. He’s also embarrassed himself on many golf courses in the same locations. John is a hacker, struggling to break 80 (OK, 90) but has a passion and enjoyment of the game, a skewed sense of humor and an outlook that makes this the most entertaining Golf Show around.
Jeff Smith, PGA (the show’s co-host) is the Director of Instruction at Otter Creek GC in Columbus, Indiana. He enjoys the innate ability to create word pictures so, even on the radio, his tips and techniques to improve your game are clear, easy to follow and help listeners cut strokes on their very next round.

Jeff suggests you follow the Shark's advice. Greg Norman told him that he should practice only the shots that give him trouble. So, we have many ideas of some fun ways you can practice the shots you suck at while on the course, not the range.
Two great guests with British accents. Ritchie Michaels is a whiskey expert. He told us some stories about Uncle Nearest, the former slave who taught Jack Daniels how to make whiskey. We talk to Stephen Mitchell, a collector of hickory clubs and an author. He marries those two passions into a trilogy of Mystery Novels. The first is called "Nine Tenths" and is available now. Plus, Jeff Smith gives his typical sage advice on how and what to practice if you want to see fast and vast improvement.
In order of appearance: Anthony Arvidson talks about the Epic Golf Club. An on-line club where private golf club members can join in order to kook up with tee times and golf partners at other private clubs around the country. Great for business execs on business trips for networking. We talk to Travis Fulton, golf instructor of great reknown about Ben Hogan golf clubs, getting fitted for clubs properly and how important it is to take lessons. And we talk to Val Skinner, LPGA Legend who has become a legend in charitable circles as well for all the money her tournaments have raised to help fight breast cancer. Lots of great info and even more entertainment as well as a chance to win a Ben Hogan Wedge!
John complains that he can get close but, try as he might, he cannot score below 80. Jeff tries to figure out where he screws up and finds his putting and pitching are to blame. The conversation on what to improve and how to improve it to break 80 once and for all, and CONSISTENTLY, follows. Listen and prepare to write 70 something on that scorecard.
The man who created Adams Golf is back and we think he has probably perfected the putter!

20: 100 Days 100 Courses


Dave Blakelock is traveling the country playing golf. Playing 100 courses in 100 days to raise money for Alzheimers research. He stopped in to play 18 at Timbergate Golf Club where Jeff Smith is the Director of Instruction. Jeff played 18 with Dave and then we talked about it. Another fun, entertaining and inspiring hour of Golf Talk
Oliver Horovitz returns to the show after a few years. Oliver was the American Caddy at St Andrews and has used his love of golf to meet many fantastic people and to travel the world from Nepal, to finishing last in the Mongolian Open and creating very funny stories along the way that he shares with us. Another funny, entertaining and maybe a bit educational edition of Those Weekend Golf Guys
18: One Perfect Position

18: One Perfect Position


Jeff describes the absolute best way to find the perfect ball position for each and every club in your bag so you can guarantee straight, high, crisp and accurate iron shots and fairway woods and even hybrids. We also talk with Micheal Veech, whiskey historian to find out if whiskey is the reason we have 18 holes and other facts you probably didn't know
Our guests this week are phenomenal. An embarrassment of riches. First, Elisa Gaudet, the brains (and the beauty) behind Women's Golf Day which is this coming June 4th. And then we introduce you to Cam Rogers, host of the BLeave In Tiger Woods podcast. So we talk about Tiger, about how to get more women playing golf and Jeff even hypothesizes that the Kentucky Derby DQ decision was done by the rules officials from the USGA. Another fun, funny and entertaining hour of golf talk radio.
How many times have you been told to "keep your head down"? Too many! Because it's bad advice and just plain wrong. Keep your left arm straight? Same deal. Maybe you're playing badly because you are following erroneous advice! We fix that this week. Or, maybe you're playing badly because you are playing the wrong ball. How to pick the golf ball that is perfect for you. Listen this week and you will know.
