Tony’s cool, miss Cordie

I miss Cordie. His quest for knowledge and humility really made the show a must listen. Tony’s grizzled vet story is good, I’ve learned some bits and tricks from his conversations…
In any event I’m still a listener. Hope you’re good Cordie!

Need Cordie! I’ll give it one more month to bring Cordie back or I’m quitting this podcast

I have no doubt Tony is a good coach but I never learn anything from him. Need Cordie! Tony spends all his time tooting his horn, drinking wine, defending his coaching style, and arguing coaching styles. I need golf science lab stuff! Not people/ schmoozing/ personality stuff. They should rename this to the coaching pissing contest show.
