Refreshing approach

I love Fred Greene’s Golf Smarter podcast for so many reasons....he's on a perpetual quest to find new approaches to this game that we love and are perplexed by at the same time...his guests are from all corners of the world with unique insights in both the mechanical and the mental approach....with the emphasis on the mental, Fred’s guests give us a new way to look at things...his approach as a mid-handicapper relates to the majority of us non-professional golfers...his guests range from legendary mental coaches like Pia Nilsson to Stat gurus like Steve Fawcett to reassuring swing coaches like the late Tony Manzioni (R.I.P.)...Fred’s true curiousness tries to get to the heart of the mystery of this most wonderful game....keep it up!

Happy to find you

I like the variety of your offerings. Just read 7 days in Utopia because I listened to your podcast. Enjoy the multiple teachers and preachers of the game. Thank you for sharing

My Fave and the BEST Golf Podcast

Fred's the real deal. He has interesting guests. His own insights are great. He admits when he's wrong, and he doesn't try to hide when he doesn't understand or agree with something. He challenges his guests as well, in a non-confrontational way that pulls more out of them. The bonus in all of this is that his show is FUN and HELPFUL to new golfers or those who've been hacking around courses for decades. Keep doing what you're doing, Fred!
