Finally!

Finally, an intelligent golf podcast for the weekend hacker, and the scratch golfer alike. Real people, real tips, and real value.

Leaving

The show is decent but can’t get past those nasty Trojan condom commercials any more! Bye.

The Best

Fred is a tremendous interviewer. The May 4 discussion with Jim Waldron is a must listen. Open up your mind, listen to this (and Jim Waldron’s previous ones) and acknowledge the massive impact the mental side has on your game. Even better, work with Jim at balancepoint golf directly - the best coach I’ve ever worked with.
