    Getting Out Of Thick, Wet Rough

    Getting Out Of Thick, Wet Rough

    This week on Those Weekend Golf Guys Radio Show we talk about rough. It’s late Spring. It’s been a rather wet Spring and a bit chilly too. That makes the grass on your local golf course thick and hard to get through with a lower lofted golf club. Jeff gives us all a quick lesson on how to effectively extricate ourselves from a thick rough lie.  It’s easy if you keep a few things that Jeff will explain in mind. Also want o welcome Draft Kings in as a new sponsor. Listen for a great deal: place a $5 wager and get $100 in free plays.

    Live From French Lick

    Live From French Lick

    This week Those Weekend Golf Guys are live from the French Lick Resort’s Pete Dye Golf Course. We were there for the BiG10 Men’s Golf Championship. While we were there we, of course, saw some great golf and got to play, maybe not great golf but on great golf courses! We also spent some quality time talking to the new Head Pro at the Donald Ross Course at French Lick, one of the few female Head Pros in the country, former LPGA star Lori Atsedes. 26 wins on the LPGA tour and some terrific stories. You are going to love this hour of golf talk radio.

    Visually Intimidating Golf Courses

    Visually Intimidating Golf Courses

    There are some golf courses that scare the bejeezus out of you just by looking at them. There are golf holes that you have never been able to play well. This week Those Weekend Golf Guys examine the visual intimidation of golf courses. How do aesthetics screw with the perception of the average golfer and how badly are they affected? John and Jeff delve into this subject in their typical fun, funny, skewed view of the world

    What Clubs Should I Buy?

    What Clubs Should I Buy?

    Do I need new clubs? What clubs should I buy? What works best for me? How do I know? These were the questions that our guest, Connie Willis, asked us in an email. We thought it might be a good idea to get her on the show and talk about it. If she has those questions, then we know most of us also have those questions. Do we buy based on test results in magazines? Do we go to a fitting at our local club? There are so many questions, so many options. This week Jeff and John answer them all for you!

    Dialing In Your Distance

    Dialing In Your Distance

    What good is having an accurate range finder on the golf course if you don’t know how far you hit each of your clubs? The answer is “no good”. In fact, it’s a waste. Whether you are using GPS or Lazer it doesn’t matter if you’re exactly 157 from the pin if you don’t know specifically what to hit to get 157. Jeff Smith explains exactly how to figure out the distance of all the clubs in your bag as only a Top 100 Golf Instructor can on this edition of Those Weekend Golf Guys
