    FlightPath Golf tees: Has the Perfect Golf Tee finally Been Invented? | #872

    872: There was something about the unique design and explanation of the FlightPath Golf Tee on Instagram that caught my eye, and I thought what the heck I’ll give it a try. During the first round, I noticed that my drives were going much straighter than usual, but gave myself more credit than the tees. But round after round, I was hitting more fairways and my yardage also increased. It took almost a year to go through the box of 8 tees, but I was hooked and ordered another. Now almost two years in, it was time to order another box, but this time, I needed to find out more. Our guest this week is the inventor, Daniel Whalen, PhD, an environmental engineer who was challenged by his inventor father to come up with something the golf world had never witnessed before. A USGA compliant tee that reduces frictional resistance and allows you to hit straighter and farther than ever before. Learn more at https://flightpathgolf.com.

Golf Smarter

Excellent podcast interesting topics and well worth listening to. I am a low marker based in Australia who is open to new ideas. I regularly listen to Golf Smarter for those ideas.
Golf is one of the most challenging sports as it is not just about the physical effort but rather the whole package - brain and body.

Golf Smarter helps with the process so a big thumbs up from me.
