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.

One more weekend for the golf guys to enjoy some time away from the studio so we have another episode of The Best (we could find). This time we revisit a show recorded live at the Mansion of the Pete Dye Golf Course at the French Lick Resort in French Lick Indiana.
While the guys are on vacatin we revisit some of the most entertaining guest interviews from the archives. We talk to Golf Comedian, JP Mulrooney. We talk to a former radio guy (and lousy golfer) turned singer/songwriter with his new song, It's Golf. And then we remember the recent golf movie, The Squeeze. We remember our oh so fun interview with the lead actress from the movie, Jillian Murray.
26: Is Golf Fun?

26: Is Golf Fun?


20 million dedicated golfers and the average handicap is 18. Yes, for the most part we play bogey golf. But ask us why we play and the #1 answer is: It's Fun! But is it? Is bogey golf really fun? Listen for some simple tricks to get that score down and really add more fun to the game. And you probably won't really have to practice! Plus, we talk to Jon Wyeth from Open Rounds [dot] com about a new way for private club members to get reciprocal privileges at other clubs around the country.
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.
