Conversations to help you improve your golf, fitness, and health.

    Episode #38 - Adam Young - Golf Coach

    Episode #38 - Adam Young - Golf Coach

    In this episode of the Fit For Golf Podcast I am joined by Adam Young.

    Adam is a golf coach who specialises in skill development and motor learning.

    He believes that there is no single best way to swing a golf club, and that providing golfers with appropriate tasks to complete and the correct types of feedback can be a very powerful tool for enabling golfers to self organise a functional technique.

    Adam’s book The Practice Manual is one of the best books I have ever read, and I’m not just talking about golf books.

    If you have any questions after the podcast please feel free to inundate Adam with questions on Twitter. His handle is @adamyounggolf

    Episode #36 - Richie Hunt - Golf Analytics

    In this episode I am joined by Golf Analytics Expert Richie Hunt. Richie works with a number of PGA TOUR players by going deep on their statistics and identifying areas of possible improvement. He tells us about the types of things he looks into, what parts of the game are commonly over and under valued, and some things amateurs can think about in regards to their game.

    It’s really interesting to get an insight into some of the finer details that Richie studies, and learn from his findings.

    I hope you enjoy the podcast and please let me know if you have any feedback.

    Episode #35 - Dr Rob Gray - The Science of a Swing Change

    In this episode of the Fit For Golf Podcast. I am joined by Dr Rob Gray.

    Rob is an expert in skill acquisition, which is how we learn and improve at things like hitting golf balls , kicking footballs, or tying our shoe laces. I was delighted to have him as a guest and ask him about the science behind swing changes, and how we can best set up our practice routines to make changes stick.

    Episode #34 - Mike Schofield - Rotational Power Expert

    Episode #34 - Mike Schofield - Rotational Power Expert

    In this episode I am joined by Mike Schofield. 

    Mike did his masters degree research on power development in golfers and his Phd research on the biomechanics and physiology of elite track and field throwers, which has strong relevance for golf. 

    Mike used to be a very keen golfer, being part of the NZ golf panel as a junior and having a +3 handicap. 

    He also has experience in speed training for golf, having increased his own club head speed from 110 to 142mph, which we dig into! 



    Mike’s knowledge and experience is of the highest level and I hope you enjoy his insights.

    Episode #33 - Marty Jertson - Mastering Weather Conditions

    Episode #33 - Marty Jertson - Mastering Weather Conditions

    In this episode of the Fit For Golf Podcast. I am joined by Marty Jertson. 

    Marty is the VP of fitting and performance for PING. He is also an exceptionally good golfer, having qualified for a number of major championships and PGA Tour events. 

    Marty is genuinely one of my favorite people to talk to, and one of the smartest I know. He has a hugely vast knowledge of a wide range of golf performance variables and has tried his best to implement them into his own game and help others with theirs. 

    In this episode we focus mainly on how conditions such as wind, moisture, and temperature affect our golf shots, and how we can improve our ability to factor them into our shot selection. 

    We also a dig a little bit into Marty’s playing career, and hear him talk about his major championship experiences.
