Description

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.

18: One Perfect Position

2019-05-1900:47:56

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.
It costs a lot to keep a golf course operating. Too many of us complain about high greens fees and insist on deals that will eventually cause our favorite courses to close. Here are some things we should all be doing to keep our favorite courses open.

A couple of great interviews for Masters Weekend. First, Bobby Jones IV: the grandson of THE Bobby Jones talks to us about Augusta National, his grandfather's legacy and Colver whiskey and it all makes sense when you listen. We also talk to Fiamma Felitch, a female golf champion in high school and college and a former LPGA Tour member talks about women's' golf, living out of a suitcase, and PXG golf clubs.

Golf Stories funny and true! How can you lose a ball before the round starts?Here's a suggestion: throw the clubs in the trunk, fill up the tank, drive till you hit empty then find the nearest golf course and play. You can find great golf venues everywhere in this country. The USGA has turned the fairway into a hazard. Sandbagging and other things to avoid. On-course encounters with wildlife.

We know it takes a lot of balls to play golf the way most of us do. But it also takes many more acoutraments like tees. bags, green repair tools and gloves. We talk about those and talk to the man who can get you the bast golf glove you've ever worn, cheap!

11: Knocking The Rust Off

2019-03-2400:46:58

Its been a while since we've actually been out on a golf course. But now that Spring has sprung, many of us actually have a chance to play for real. OK, temper your expectations and realize you may have to relearn some of the things you mastered last season. Jeff and John explain some early season techniques like when to over club, why it's important to hit a bucket before EVERY round and some other things you may never have thought of on your own. Hey, that's what we're here for!
10: Its The Simple Things

10: Its The Simple Things

2019-03-1800:49:00

It goes without saying. But we're gonna say it anyway! Jeff exlplains how the simple things, the things we tend to take for granted, are often the things that are complicating our ability to play this game well. For instance, something as simple as the grip can dictate the length and direction of any shot. If your grip is off, the shot will not go where you're intending. On the other hand, subtle changes to your grip can help in shot shaping and playing like you really know what you're doing!

Or, how this rope can improve your golf game for mere pennies! Jeff lays out a series of ideas that will allow you to perfect certain aspects of your game using cheap items you can usually find around your house already.  This rope, for example, can improve your swing speed. A simple yardstick can help you finally figure out how to align your putter head properly. And there are a lot more idea like that this week. Listen close!
