    Talking Ryder Cup with Mark Calcavecchia, Amateur Golf & Impact Zone Training with Bobby Clampett, Speed Training with Virgil Herring, & Caddying for the Legends with Larry Malestic...

    On this episode I'm joined by 1989 Open Champion and 4 time US Ryder Cup team member Mark Calcavecchia, one of the great Amateur players, Broadcasters, and now Instructors in our game Bobby Clampett, one of the most decorated Instructors in our game, and 2 time Tennessee Teacher of the Year Virgil Herring, and former Tour Caddie of the Legends Larry Malestic.


    Mark Calcavecchia and I talk about his 4 Ryder Cup appearances. We hear about some of the classic pairings he had and matches he played in. We talk about the celebratory moments, how the pressure of the Ryder Cup compares to playing in a major, and his go-for-broke playing style.


    Bobby Clampett is one of the all-time great amateur players. We go back to his time at BYU and some of the great tournaments he won. We hear about the 1978 World Amateur Championship, his win at the Western Amateur, and the Porter Cup that same year. We also get into his Impact Zone Golf training philosophy and the dynamics of the golf swing.


    Virgil Herring is a 2 time Tennessee Teacher of the Year along with being a Top 50 US Kids Instructor. He has also coached several Tour players including Brandt Snedeker. We hear about how they got hooked up and what made Brandt one of the all-time great putters on Tour. We also talk mental approach and why Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin is right when he says, "It's not what you're capable of, it's what you're willing to do."


    Larry Malestic caddied on the European Tour for 2 years and on the PGA & Champions Tour for 12. He was on the bag for legends like Gary Player, Chi Chi Rodriguez, Lee Trevino, Tom Weiskopf, Orville Moody, and Bruce Crampton. He's written a wonderful book titled, Golf Road, My Time with the Masters of the Game. Larry shares some of the great stories he tells in the book including caddying for Gary Player at The Masters, being on the bag for Chi Chi during the 1991 Senior Skins Game which also included Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, and Lee Trevino. So many great stories in this segment and in his book. Larry is a great storyteller.
