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.

Yup. Days are shorter. Days are cooler. Two very good reasons for speeding up your game. Frost delays and early sunsets can really screw up the time you can send on the course. Use what time you have wisely.
Marty Griffin, teaching Pro from Madison Wisconsin who specializes in teaching golfers with 18 handicaps and higher, joins the guys to prove even John can get better! No matter how good or bad you think you are at golf, there are some simple techniques to get much better; to hit the ball better; to score better; to lower that handicap
Brooke Watts, from Star Ranch in Austin TX. joins the guys for a lively discussion designed to make you better. Jeff wants you to know there are really only 2 stats that are important to know if you want to improve. Listen close and all will be revealed.Jeff insists he can tell you how to improve, what you really need to practice once he knows your distance from the hole in regulation and how long is you 2nd putt.All those other stats are merely noise when trying to figure out how to get better.
What do you do when your skills improve but your score doesn't? Leave the frustration behind and follow Jeff's excellent advice. Pay attention. Pay attention to your surroundings; to where the trouble is; to what kind of lie you have and what clubs you know you can effectively use from that lie. Also, Jeff shares the secret formula to determine how long of a course your game is suited for.
We spend the weekend at a place you need to put on your bucket list: The French Lick Resort in French Lick, Indiana. We were there for the Senior LPGA Championship, presented by Old National Bank but you need to go for the golf (there are 3 classic courses from Pete Dye, Donald Ross and Tom Bendelow). There is history. There are trains. There is great food...the list goes on and on. We love it there. Listen and we're sure you will understand just why you have to go to French Lick

The guys talk to Matthew Reagan from Operation36. Matthew and his folks head up a pretty cool idea to get 1 million new people hooked on golf in the not too distant future. It's a new technique to learn that is more fun. Spend more time on the course playing than on the range practicing!

Put a golf trip here on your bucket list

Let's face it, you don't have that shot! There are so many times we weekend golfers try to pull off a shot that requires perfection, only to kick ourselves after we screw it up. So lets face it, you are NOT going to put that ball on the green 246 yards away with your 3 wood; you are not going to get through (or over) those trees; you probably will not clear that water hazard. Listen intently as Jeff explains how to make good decisions on the course. Learn On Course Strategy
John and Jeff relate some on course golf stories that are actually true, and a few they have taken liberties with. Also, a company in Louisville that makes custom head covers from a picture of your pet is profiled. Remarkable stories and Cuddle Clones this week
