Finally!

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

The Best

Fred is a tremendous interviewer. The May 4 and July 2022 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.

Best all around golf podcast out there

As a Teaching Professional I like to listen and watch how other coaches go about making their players better. I was attracted to this podcast at first b/c of the amazing guests Fred puts on one episode after another. Now I look forward to every new show so that I can hear from the mental gurus of golf, course architects, club makers, putting coaches and so much more.

Fred Greene who has been doing this podcast since before people knew what podcasts are is an avid golfer but he is an excellent interviewer and explores questions that his golfing audience can benefit from. If there is something that is said by the person Fred is interviewing that is complicated, Fred will slow things down so that everyone listening can understand.

From mental coaches, swing coaches, historians, club makers etc., Golf Smarter has every golfer covered!
