    The Fluid Motion Golf Factor and Reading Your Fluid Cues with Steven Yellin

    The Fluid Motion Golf Factor and Reading Your Fluid Cues with Steven Yellin

    789: Steven Yellin, creator, author, and teacher of the Fluid Motion Factor, listed a testimonial on his website from David Leadbetter that sums it up, “It’s pretty simple. The Fluid Motion Factor Program will make you more consistent. End of story!” If you believe that your mental game contributes to lower scores, then this episode is for you. Steven’s revolutionary training program allows you to be more consistent. But this isn’t sports psychology, this is a neurophysiological process in the mind that EVERY golfer has to experience in order to produce a fluid golf swing. He’ll work with you one on one, but be prepared because in our conversation, he says you can’t afford it. But he was generous enough to offer Golf Smarter listeners a 10% discount on his online program. Something that’s he’s never done before. Find more at fluidmotiongolf.com. Special thanks to Tony Wright (ep787) for introducing us to Steven!

    This week on Golf Smarter Mulligans 105, even though Tony Manzoni had tremendous success coaching the Men’s golf program at College of the Desert, he didn’t focus on Men’s golf only. Tony had tremendous respect for the women’s game and believed that amateur golfers at all skill levels could learn a lot from watching the LPGA Tour. He also spent a lot of time working with children who were exceptional golfers and had a future in the professional game.
    Tony’s book “The Lost Fundamental: One Simple Move. Better Golf Forever.” is available once again in either paperback or kindle formats. Find it at https://www.amazon.com/Lost-Fundamental-Simple-Better-Forever-ebook/dp/B07MZFSPBW/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=tony+manzoni&qid=1583280371&sr=8-1.

    The Brilliance of Carey Mumford (RIP) and the Art of Custom Clubfitting with Tony Wright

    The Brilliance of Carey Mumford (RIP) and the Art of Custom Clubfitting with Tony Wright

    787: Anthony “Tony” Wright is a custom club fitter, putting guru, and disciple of the the founding father of golf sports psychology, the late Dr. Carey Mumford. In this conversation that covers the benefits of being fitted for clubs, especially for high handicappers, we also talk about and share some of Carey Mumford’s “Clear Key System”. Dr. Mumford, who passed away in 2013, was on Golf Smarter twice (now available in Golf Smarter Mulligans episodes 16 & 26) so we share some highlights of those conversations. Unfortunately, Mr Mumford’s website ClearKeyGolf.com and his books “The Double Connexion”, “Golf’s Best Kept Secret”, “The Putting Book”, and “The Mental Game” are no longer available anywhere. Tony has his own podcast focused on clubmaking called Game Improvement Golf.

    This week on Golf Smarter Mulligans 103, is the 6th of nine episodes with Tony Manzoni (RIP). So many listeners confuse with Tony’s swing with Stack & Tilt. Tony addresses the difference and why Stack & Tilt may work for some, but will eventually create back problems.

    The 4 Primary Skills for Putting from The Putter Book with author Brandon Stooksbury PGA

    786: Brandon Stooksbury’s first book The Wedge Book is an Amazon Best Seller. His newest, the Putter Book is simple, direct, and really helpful. In this week’s conversation host Fred Greene challenges Brandon to give us a putting lesson by explanation only…and he succeeds! He breaks down in detail the four skills required to become a better, more consistent putter. They include green reading, start line control, speed, and attitude.

    This week on Golf Smarter Mulligans is the 5th of nine episodes with Tony Manzoni (RIP). Beyond being a great golfer and teacher, Tony Manzoni had so much more to his life than the game. In this conversation we get into an interesting discussion of what it’s like to live in the shadow of a high profile father, then pursuing a career choice in the same field. Examples discussed include Steph Curry and Frank Sinatra Jr. We then continue to discuss taking your game to the next level one club at a time. The focus of the conversation is how many situations require wedges.

    Barney Adams on the State of the Game, Equipment, The Wow Factor, and Breakthrough Golf Tech

    Barney Adams on the State of the Game, Equipment, The Wow Factor, and Breakthrough Golf Tech

    784: When Barney Adams introduced the Adams Golf Tight Lies Fairway “Woods” (was the first to use metal instead of wood) in 1988 he changed the golf equipment industry forever. The last time we spoke to him in 2012 he was promoting the wonderful idea of “Play It Forward” for the USGA. A great idea that never really caught on. Now he’s showcasing his newest venture at Breakthrough Golf Technology after seeing that no significant innovation has been made to putter shafts for decades. But there’s so much more we cover in this very entertaining hour including the state of the game, golf on tv, his WOW Factor book and more.

    This week on Golf Smarter Mulligans #100, is the third of nine episodes featuring the late, great instructor Tony Manzoni. This time in the first of two episodes, we talk about Getting To The Next Level, One Club at a Time. Mulligans is published each Friday to help with your weekend round.

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.
