This week on Those Weekend Golf Guys Radio Show we talk about rough. It’s late Spring. It’s been a rather wet Spring and a bit chilly too. That makes the grass on your local golf course thick and hard to get through with a lower lofted golf club. Jeff gives us all a quick lesson on how to effectively extricate ourselves from a thick rough lie.  It’s easy if you keep a few things that Jeff will explain in mind.

This week Those Weekend Golf Guys are live from the French Lick Resort’s Pete Dye Golf Course. We were there for the BiG10 Men’s Golf Championship. While we were there we, of course, saw some great golf and got to play, maybe not great golf but on great golf courses! We also spent some quality time talking to the new Head Pro at the Donald Ross Course at French Lick, one of the few female Head Pros in the country, former LPGA star Lori Atsedes. 26 wins on the LPGA tour and some terrific stories. You are going to love this hour of golf talk radio.
There are some golf courses that scare the bejeezus out of you just by looking at them. There are golf holes that you have never been able to play well. This week Those Weekend Golf Guys examine the visual intimidation of golf courses. How do aesthetics screw with the perception of the average golfer and how badly are they affected? John and Jeff delve into this subject in their typical fun, funny, skewed view of the world
Do I need new clubs? What clubs should I buy? What works best for me? How do I know? These were the questions that our guest, Connie Willis, asked us in an email. We thought it might be a good idea to get her on the show and talk about it. If she has those questions, then we know most of us also have those questions. Do we buy based on test results in magazines? Do we go to a fitting at our local club? There are so many questions, so many options. This week Jeff and John answer them all for you!
What good is having an accurate range finder on the golf course if you don’t know how far you hit each of your clubs? The answer is “no good”. In fact, it’s a waste. Whether you are using GPS or Lazer it doesn’t matter if you’re exactly 157 from the pin if you don’t know specifically what to hit to get 157. Jeff Smith explains exactly how to figure out the distance of all the clubs in your bag as only a Top 100 Golf Instructor can on this edition of Those Weekend Golf Guys
It’s Masters Week. You watch the best golfers in the world playing and you can do nothing but admire their form, their abilities, the way they can manage great scores on a tough course in tough conditions. You study their form and think if you could just look like they do, then you could score like they do. WRONG! Can you imagine if we showed a still pic of Ted Williams as he made contact with a ball, or Michael Jordan as he hung in midair with his jump shot that that would be the right form to emulate? No. Jeff explains some of the elements in the pictures you have seen repeatedly have really screwed up your golf game. Another information packed fun, funny and entertaining episode of Those Weekend Golf Guys. The Second Best Golf Show IN The World!
Meet our guest, Stephanie Simoes. She is an expert in fundraising with a company called One Hope Wine. If you are raising money for an organization with a golf scramble, you need to hear this episode. Jeff is traveling out west and threatens to hit a ball off the rim of the Grand Canyon. We also talk a little bit about the perfect putting stoke. 
This week Those Weekend Golf Guys bring Janis Thornnton onto the show. Janis is a Golf Fitness expert out in Scottsdale Arizona. You want to play this year without injury?

Another fun, funny, and entertaining episode of Those Weekend Golf Guys.
Not enough sense to come in out of the rain! ‘Tis the season for wet. April showers bring May flowers, right? So, do you play in the rain or just head to the 19th hole and wait for it to stop? What shots are most affected by wet grass. What adjustments do you need to make when putting in wet conditions? Jeff Smith, Top 100 Teacher, answers these questions and many others we didn’t even ask. Another fun, funny, and entertaining hour of Golf Talk with the Award Winning Podcast, Those Weekend Golf Guys.
This week on Those Weekend Golf Guys Podcast, Jeff Smith, A Golf Magazine Top 100 Teacher, explains how to play this coming season with getting hurt! And it requires more than just stretching and warming up. There should be no static parts to your body. None at all. Everything should be moving together and in concert. Specifics on when and how to pivot, and what body part you have to use to avoid injury in this week’s episode. Listen now.
Don’t nobody have time for that! Not good English but an important element to take to heart. The downswing happens, from start to contact, in about a quarter of a second. That is not enough time to realize your alignment may be off, or the swing path not right or any problem. Not enough time to notice a problem and definitely not enough time to fix any problem. That is why the pre-shot routine is so important. It is the one thing that helps you swing without making mistakes, swing and make proper contact and swing to hit the best possible shot. Jeff describes in this episode of Those Weekend Golf Guys Podcast what makes the perfect pre-shot routine and explains how to make it happen the same way every time. And that is important! Also, today is the last day to vote in the Sports Podcast Awards. Please go to and look for category 9, Golf Podcasts and vote for us. Thanks.
What the hell did I just do wrong? You think maybe you lifted your head up, but that’s not it really. You say “I pulled it”. But your club head was in the wrong position at contact. We don’t know what we don’t know. You can’t fix your mistakes until you know what mistakes you are making. Jeff explains the most usual mistakes we amateurs make and what causes those bad shots. So, now you can finally fix the damn things. Another fun, funny, entertaining and oh so educational edition of Those Weekend Golf Guys
Want to get better this year? No, really. Is this the year you are going to break whatever your number is? Here’s how: FORGET ABOUT THE NUMBER! During your rounds this season, don’t keep score. Instead keep track of the quality of your shots. Write down all your terrible shots, bad shots, OK shots, good shots, and great shots. Use the number of high quality shots to judge your game. Jeff explains exactly how to do this and why it will work wonders if you’re trying to improve your game. Want to enjoy yourself? Listen to this episode. Want to improve quickly? Listen to this episode and take some notes! Enjoy.
This week on Those Weekend Golf Guys Jeff Smith talks about his trip out to Phoenix. One of his long time students, Tyler Duncan, was playing in the WM tournament at TPC Scottsdale and wanted a few last minute coaching tips from Jeff. So we talk about that and then the conversation turns to how different is it coaching a PGA Tour player as opposed to a double digit handicap player. It really isn’t all that different! So, if you’re a double digit handicap you should give a close listen to this week’s show and get a bit of a head start on this season.
Is it time for your own golf simulator? Jeff has returned from the PGA Merchandise Show and regales us with the tales of all the cool stuff he saw. Some of which he bought! But, it seems technology has has progressed to the point where you can buy a golf simulator that could fit in your back yard or garage. And the cost makes it affordable finally for the average home owner. Lots of equipment that will shave strokes off your score if you practice but with this stuff you can practice golf at home effectively.

Check out drgretagolf [dot] com for her website and check out this phenomenal woman for yourself.
Get better using simple things you already have lying around the house! If you have 9 cents (nine pennies specifically) you can groove your swing. Have some ribbon? Have a smart phone? Then you can record your swing path in slow motion! And the things you can do with some rope will astound you. Jeff has some very cheap, very effective ways to improve your game this winter without spending any money. In fact, you won’t have to leave your garage! Another great, entertaining, informative and down right fun episode of Those Weekend Golf Guys.
Should you get fitted for clubs before you start a series of lessons? It’s like which came first, the chicken or the egg type of thing. If you are using clubs that do not fit you, a teacher like Jeff could still improve your game but it might seem uncomfortable for you to produce some of the swings, grips, stances, etc. that would be necessary. If the clubs are fit to you, then everything would seem to be more easily ;earned like the stance, grip, etc. So, the question is: should you be fit before you take lessons. Abd the answer is (as it always is) That Depends! This is the same presentation Jeff is scheduled to make at this year’s PGA Merchandise Show next week in Orlando.
Once again we turn our attention and our automobiles in a southerly direction. So much great golf to enjoy just  a few hundred miles south of where we are to keep us busy until old man winter leaves us alone and it is safe to come back home again.
Today we deliver this year’s most listened to episode. Judging from that stat we can surmise that this was the most popular, the most entertaining, and the most educational episode of the whole dang year. We would highly suggest you listen to it again.
