    11. Every Shot Must Have a Purpose with Pia Nilsson & Lynn Marriott

    11. Every Shot Must Have a Purpose with Pia Nilsson & Lynn Marriott

    Tori sits down with VISION54 co-founders Lynn Marriott and Pia Nilsson. They are internationally recognized and are the two highest ranked female instructors in America. The pair co-authored four bestselling books, including Every Shot Must Have a Purpose, which we dive into today.
    Listen in as Lynn and Marriott discuss the philosophy behind VISION54 before diving into four powerful principles for playing better golf: 1) Think small, play big. 2) Anger makes us stupid. 3) Make practice real. 4) Make pressure your friend.
    Key Takeaways
    ●      (5:19) “54” is a mindset and a process. Shooting 54 (trying to birdie every single hole in an 18-hole round) is a dream for any player. VISION54 comes down to keeping a mind open to possibilities. Professional golfers are distinguished primarily by a greater awareness of their strengths and gaps.
    ●      (14:12) Think small, play big. “Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” Allow yourself to have big and compelling dreams. However, seeing those goals through to fruition starts with the tiniest, seemingly insignificant step. Know the factors that are in your control and those out of your control.
    ●      (21:42) Anger makes us stupid. Especially heightened emotions, anger included, blind us to perspective and coordination. During those all-too-familiar down moments in a game, the best thing to do is to let the negative emotions pass before making your next decision. Get the tension out of your body by sprinting to the next tee or doing a few jumping jacks. Celebrate all your good shots to raise your positivity all the while. In fact, emotionalizing your outcomes is one thing you can control on the course.
    ●      (28:18) Make practice real. “There is a big foundational mismatch,” says Pia, “between range culture and the golf course.” Many golfers tend to train the same movements using the same clubs in the same environment, committing them to muscle memory. But the reality is that golf is a game of variables, and no two games will ever require the exact same strategy. Make sure to do all three primary forms of practice regularly: maintenance practice, performance practice, and future practice.
    ●      (40:27) Make pressure your friend. Downplaying the intensity of the game might not actually be the best strategy. Instead, lean into the pressure, arousal, and adrenaline, if only to be incentivized to stay creative and on your toes.

    10. The Reality of Becoming a Professional Golfer with Betsy Kelly & Leigh Klasse

    10. The Reality of Becoming a Professional Golfer with Betsy Kelly & Leigh Klasse

    Tori sits down with Betsy Kelly and Leigh Klasse to do a deep dive into all things women’s professional golf.
    Listen in as our guests talk about the experience of entering their very first USGA championship, as well as Leigh’s biggest lessons learned after over 60 tournaments and her thoughts on the upcoming USGA tournament on their home turf at Troon North Golf Club.
    Betsy breaks down the ins-and-outs of Q-School and the expensive reality of traveling for tournaments. Money aside, she discusses what it takes to prepare physically and mentally for tour status with the LPGA.
    Key Takeaways
    ●      (13:51) There are three stages to go through in the LPGA Qualifying School (Q-School): Become one of the top 100 out of 300 female applicants, compete for full Epson Tour status (whittling further down to the top 45) and, finally, complete Q-Series to get your LPGA card.
    ●      (26:06) You don’t make money unless you’re in the top 50 in the world. Women in the LPGA are struggling due to the high cost of participation. Every tournament which involves travel will set you back $2500-$3000 to enter, and there is no guarantee you’ll make that back, even if you’re one of the top golfers in the country. The most savvy players build a support network to have a place to stay in different states. That said, some USGA tournaments do offer the option to stay with a host family. Definitely take advantage of this option if available.
    ●      (37:42) The LPGA requires you to invest in your own caddy. This is yet another big expense that most players overlook until the last moment.
    ●      (52:16) There are two types of professional golfers: Those with “tour” status and those who teach professionally for a living.

    9. What to Expect at Golf School with Milo Lines

    9. What to Expect at Golf School with Milo Lines

    Tori sits down with golf instructor Milo Lines and golf buddy, Kareen Larson.
     Having just experienced two days at Milo’s Golf School, Tori and Kareen share their highs and lows alongside their key takeaways from the program!
     Key Takeaways
    ●      (18:58) Milo’s golf school is for anyone who wants to see lasting changes in their golf game. Over the course of two days, you will get a chance to see where and how you fail, and how to then fill those gaps. Milo wants his students to walk away “with a fairly solid roadmap of where they’re trying to go and how they’re trying to get there.”
    ●      (26:08) Milo’s best lessons are half-day immersions. This time frame allows you to get the “golf school experience”. One-on-one coaching also helps you uncover your points of failure, learn why you’re failing, and put a plan in place to address those challenges.
    ●      (30:59) Focus on getting your driving to an A+ level. “You can’t play golf if you can’t drive,” says Milo. “I’ve never met a person who is a really good driver, who is not already a single digit or better. [...] If you’re long and straight, I guarantee you’re a low handicapper.”
    ●      (39:08) Find an instructor who speaks your language. Great credentials is one thing; the ability to translate that knowledge for you as an individual is another. The best instructor for you is someone who jives with your personality and understands and appreciates your learning style.
    ●      (41:24) Know your goal before your first lesson. Milo’s most productive lessons come when the student knows exactly what he or she wants out of their time together.

    8. Inside Look at Being a Country Club and Professional Caddie

    8. Inside Look at Being a Country Club and Professional Caddie

    Tori sits down with Tara Bateman and Michael Martin to get an inside look at being a country club and professional caddie.
    After a quick update on their golf game and a look back on their careers, Tara and Michael do a deep dive into the role of a caddie, how they should ideally interact with their players, what to keep (and keep out) of the bag, how they get paid, and best practices for tipping.
    Key Takeaways
    ●      (18:32) A forecaddie’s job is to go ahead of golfers to find where balls land, track shots, and discuss strategy for upcoming shots and putts. The group of four rides in a cart while the forecaddie stays one shot ahead on the tee to aid each one. Beware not to “overcaddie”, especially if your player prefers to trust their instincts. The best forecaddies focus on raising the player’s confidence, while respecting pace of play by stepping in to offer advice only when asked.
    ●      (25:41) When you’re playing golf, play fast and have fun. Even the best players go through that frustrating period halfway through a game where their strategy has fallen apart. Don’t worry about having your golf game judged by your caddie because the reality is that golf is a humbling sport!
    ●      (32:41) If you’re a newer golfer, “you’re not that good to get that mad”! Get clear on the fundamentals and focus your training around your gaps. Know the typical percentages so that you have perspective on the average and be able to lower your expectations. For example, if you have a putt over 15 feet, you are already in the upper percentile of players in that skill.
    ●      (34:58) If you want to be sure about how to pay your caddy, just go to the pro shop and inquire. Ask whether you’re paying base-plus-tip or tipping only, and also what’s a good amount to tip. There is no minimum, but anywhere from $20 to $100 is typical.

    7. What Does Good Golf Look Like for YOU with Lou Stagner

    7. What Does Good Golf Look Like for YOU with Lou Stagner

    Tori sits down with Lou Stagner, an Arccos Golf Data Insights Lead, Co-Host of the “Hack It Out Golf” podcast and one of the leading data research analysts on The PGA TOUR.
    Listen in as Lou explains what good golf looks like, not just on the expert level but also for those with a handicap inching towards average, whether 10 or 20.
    Key Takeaways
    ●      (13:08) Hitting fairways is not all that important. In fact, according to Arccos data, fairways hit is roughly the same no matter the skill level. For women, those numbers are roughly between 50% and 54%. The real difference-maker, off the tee, is 1) keeping the ball in play and 2) getting longer, as there is a very strong relationship between your handicap and how far you hit the ball. The biggest problem in golf regarding distance for women is not enough shorter tees. If you have an average distance with a driver of 175 yards, play a course between 4400 and 4600 yards.
    ●      (19:45) If you really want to understand your performance, focus on strokes gained. Aside from this, look at how many greens in regulation (GIR) you’re hitting. There is a very strong relationship between your skill level and how many greens you hit.
    ●      (28:02) Fairways hit is not that important. Keeping the ball in play is important. When it comes to greens hit, scratch players are typically around 11, while 10-15 handicaps are around 5. Hitting more greens is absolutely critical, but like tee shots, you have to limit penalty strikes. Avoid bunkers as well. When there is a fairway bunker in play for you off the tee, you are typically better shifting away from that fairway bunker. Sometimes, the most appropriate target is in the rough. Do your best to avoid bunkers, water hazards, and the out-of-bounds.
    ●      (35:37) It’s important to set the right expectations when it comes to wedge shots. Pick a specific target for every single shot you take, do what you can to land the ball on that target, then accept that the larger your handicap, the higher the area you’ll actually hit. Even the greatest players on the planet hit inside of a big zone with a wedge in their hands, and the gap widens the farther they are from the hole.
    ●      (47:59) You will only beat your handicap about 20% of the time. If you played a round of golf and had net par, your score would be in the top 20% of all your scores. Regardless, don’t get too focused on outcomes. Net par is a good goal, but consider it after the fact rather than letting the pressure of hitting a number affect your game.
    ●      (49:24) 10-handicappers average two putts from about 16 feet, which is a number everyone should strive for and is attainable through enough speed control training. As you get closer to the hole, you want to get every single putt past it. For a 10-handicapper, that distance is around 8 feet. The farther you are from the hole, the bigger percentage of putts you want to leave short, in order to get the shortest second shot possible.
