Description

Take the #1 golf instructor in the state of Indiana 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.

52: Grumpy Golfers

John and Jeff pitch a fit about some of the stuff in golf that really pisses them off! Jeff complains if John hits his ball out of the fairway (as usual) he can now move impediments in his way and, within the rules, improve his lie. BUT! Jeff can hit a ball straight down the middle (as usual) and if it lands in a divot, he cannot improve his lie. Unfair! No, stupid. And John wants to know why he has to pay full price to play a course with recently aerated greens. Lively discussion, some arguments, and lots of laughs on this week's show.
Do you think it would be easier to spend $399.99 on that miracle club that will get you 300 yard+ Drives straight down the fairway EVERY TIME? Why not just spend less and get some lessons and learn how to hit the clubs you already have? Don't fall prey to the on-line charlatans that are after your last penny and know you are so anxious to improve your game that you will spend that last penny to do it!
50: Whats Under Your Feet

50: Whats Under Your Feet

2020-01-1100:49:02

Not all ground is the same. Not even bunkers. Not all sand is the same. What part of the beach are you on? The light fluffy sand? The sand where a little water hits and it's dry but a bit packed? Or are you on the sand that is hard-packed? And don't get me started on types of grass. You see, it really matters what kind of ground is under your feet to help determine what kind of a shot you should use. Jeff gives you insight into how to make those choices. Also, we interview Wes Wittingham from Volvik on how the golf ball you choose reacts to these different conditions. So, if you are as confused as the rest of us, listen to this episode for some clarification

Hope y'all had a merry Christmas and are looking forward to the new year. this is our last show for the year. We revisit some old stories, add some new stories and revisit all the reason why you have to agree that Jeff Smith is the #1 Golf Instructor in the state of Indiana
We interview the President of The Gof Heritage Society, Dr. Bern Bernacki about the history of the game and how you can get involved in preserving the history and traditions of the game. Maybe even get involved in playing the game the way it used to be, with hickory shafts.

46: Whats Your Swing Type

2019-12-1500:46:00

What kind of swing type are you? A head down flipper? Maybe a hang backer? A knee dipper, maybe. A blocker or an over the topper? Maybe a spin out guy or a big lag dude? Jeff discusses each of these, what problems they present and how to fix them quickly, easily, and painlessly. Plus the odd golf story and the witty banter you've come to expect!
We talk to E.A. Tischler, the co-founder of the Bio Swing Dynamics school of golf instruction, It's what Jeff Smith uses, as well as many of the top 100 teachers in the country. We explore the differences and benefits. Also, we talk to Doug Kragel, from Diagio distilleries about bourbon and the possibilities of creating a golf trail that shadows Kentucky's famed Bourbon Trail for tourists

We celebrate the fact that our own Jeff Smith has been named the #1 Golf Instructor in the state of Indiana. Not that it comes as a surprise to us. We also talk about one of Jeff's former students, Tyler Duncan, who just won his first PGA tournament.
Jeff Smith and Sara Stone join the show from the Top 100 Teachers Conference in Pinehurst. They not only share their great techniques for learning to play better but Sara has some pretty interesting stories about teaching former President, Bill Clinton, a few things on the course. Whether your goal is to break 100, break 80, get to scratch or just "suck less" on the course, these two can help you get there.
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

35: Lets Be Realistic Here

2019-09-2900:46:00

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
Todd McDaniel has a space on Facebook called Gimmie Golf where you can buy, sell or trade new and used golf equipment! And then comes a conversation with Bart Potter, His website, jiffybody.com, will show you how to easily replace popping those pre-round Ibuprofens with some simple movements to make your body more ready for golf.
