Stop Trying to Change Your Swing All By Yourself with John Kantarski
Dec 20 2016 38 mins  
571 John Kantarski specializes in left handed golf. But after teaching thousands of golfers, he’s also noticed how frequently golfers, left or right handed, also believe they understand what went wrong after each swing, just compounding the problem. No matter how good a golfer is, without proper training, it’s hard to make changes with the knowledge of cause and effect. A Hank Haney certified instructor, John shares his background making changes, fixes, and insights. Here’s the link https://youtu.be/_fjVwY_IY28 to the bonus video Fred mentioned at the end of the show. Fred sits down with Rocio Robles, General Manager of El Manglar Campo de Golf (Golf Course) Riviera Maya, Mexico. Operated by Vidanta Golf, El Manglar is a Jack Nicklaus Design 18 hole - Par 54 course. Even though each hole is a par 3, holes from the black tees (2923yds) range in length from 103-276 yards, with 10 of the holes being over 150 yards and 11 having water in play. The four longest holes, #4 (223yds), #13 (276yds), #14 (195yds), and #18 (195yds), all require you to carry either streams or lakes. We wouldn't be surprised if the slope from the back tees are over 133, but no rating or slope is offered. Inserted throughout the interview with Rocio, Fred provides commentary, photos, and video from his round and a time-lapse of the sunrise from the beach. This is an incredible property on the Caribbean coast of Mexico, south of Cancun, north of Playa del Carmen, that boasts 5 hotels, 14 impressive restaurants, the golf course, a large boutique that provides everything from groceries for your kitchen equipped condo, to a pharmacy, gifts, clothes, and more.

Podcast host Fred Greene sits down with Rocio Robles, General Manager of El Manglar Campo de Golf (Golf Course) Riviera Maya, Mexico. Operated by Vidanta Golf, El Manglar is a Jack Nicklaus Design 18 hole - Par 54 course. Even though each hole is a par 3, holes from the black tees (2923yds) range in length from 103-276 yards, with 10 of the holes being over 150 yards and 11 having water in play. The four longest holes, #4 (223yds), #13 (276yds), #14 (195yds), and #18 (195yds), all require you to carry either streams or lakes. We wouldn't be surprised if the slope from the back tees are over 133, but no rating or slope is offered. Inserted throughout the interview with Rocio, Fred provides commentary, photos, and video from his round and a time-lapse of the sunrise from the beach.

567: A Thanksgiving Feast of the Greatest Golf Book Ever! THE MATCH with author Mark Frost
Nov 22 2016 33 mins  
567: In our previous episode, actor Malcolm McDowell talked about his favorite golf book ever, which so happens to be mine too. “THE MATCH: The Day The Game of Golf Changed Forever” by Mark Frost was published in 2008, but is a great read of nonfiction and in today’s 24 hour news cycle, an unbelievable story that was never told before this book. The audio book and book are both available at Amazon and here’s the write up to the story: The year: 1956. Four decades have passed since Eddie Lowery came to fame as the ten-year-old caddie to U.S. Open Champion Francis Ouimet. Now a wealthy car dealer and avid supporter of amateur golf, Lowery has just made a bet with fellow millionaire George Coleman. Lowery claims that two of his employees, amateur golfers Harvie Ward and Ken Venturi, cannot be beaten in a best-ball match. Lowery challenges Coleman to bring any two golfers of his choice to the course at 10 a.m. the next day to settle the issue. Coleman accepts the challenge and shows up with his own power team: Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson, the game's greatest living professionals, with fourteen major championships between them. In Mark Frost's peerless hands, complete with the recollections of all the participants, the story of this immortal foursome and the game they played that day--legendarily known in golf circles as the greatest private match ever played--comes to life with powerful, emotional impact and edge-of-your-seat suspense.” This interview was originally published in 2008. Happy Thanksgiving!

564: A Club-focused Swing Can Be More Effective Than a Body-focused Swing
Nov 01 2016 28 mins  
Manuel De la Torre was born above the golf shop at the Real Club de la Puerta de Hierro in Madrid, Spain, where his father Ángel de la Torre was the head golf professional. Angel was five-time Spanish National Golf Champion. Manuel's father's instruction and that of his father's friend and colleague Ernest Jones, served as the basis for de la Torre's instruction. His concepts for golf instruction have stood the test of time for over 60 years. He was head golf professional at Milwaukee Country Club teaching amateurs and tour professionals for more than 60 years.Recorded in 2009, this conversation is just as valid today as it was when we originally spoke. Unfortunately Manuel De la Torre died in the Spring of 2016, but we were honored to hear his opinion on why golfers spend too much time focusing on their body parts during the swing. Every body is unique and moves it’s own way. That’s why understanding the role of the golf club may allow you to be a much more successful, and less stressed ball striker.His book and DVD “Understanding The Golf Swing” are still available online. Here’s the address for the hardcover in Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Understanding-Golf-Swing-Manuel-Torre/dp/1886346518/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1478020703&sr=8-1&keywords=understanding+the+golf+swingHost Fred Greene is interested in hearing your opinion on this topic.

561: John Ambrose is a retired airline pilot who has succeeded in developing a unique putter that takes USGA specs to their limits. The major manufacturers continue to produce putters that are the same basic design from 100 years ago. But John wasn’t satisfied. When you pull this putter out of your bag, you’ll find two things happen. First, your playing partners will want to try it and talk about it. Most importantly, on your first stroke you’ll discover that the ball will go down your intended aiming line. In this episode, John and host Fred Greene talk about the advantages, history, and concept behind his L2 MOI MAXX putter. While looking down the line before his first stroke, Fred realized why his putts were brushing the right side of the cup. Now his confidence to stay on his intended line has dramatically increased. You can watch this complete interview, unedited to see what John’s talking about on the GolfSmarterTV channel at https://youtu.be/DrYjRfDuMSc . For an added bonus, we’ve also published a short interview with John on the practice putting green as Fred and others take their first strokes with the putter. https://youtu.be/4lKObEvF1H4 This putter cannot be found in any retail location or pro shop, only at L2Putters.com.

557 Premium: We continue the discussion of getting custom fit for your golf clubs to improve your consistency and your game. This time we head to Boston to speak with the US Vice President of the International Club Makers Guild, Frank Viola. This time we discuss the various components of the club and how important it is to not concern yourself with popular brand names, but to focus on getting the right parts that work best for you. We also talk about pricing variations of custom club making vs off the shelf clubs. Our host, Fred Greene, doesn't understand what all the numbers mean in a computer print out from a launch monitor after comparing five shots each with a blade 6 iron vs a cavity back 6 iron created by the same manufacturer. Frank explains the significance of each number and teaches Fred on which are the most important results in selecting the right club.Want to watch the full interview and see some of her work?

556: Getting fitted for golf clubs. You may hear a lot about the advantages, but most of us ignore it, especially if we have a friend who is raving about his club and we take a successful swing with it. Our guest this week is the President of the International Clubmakers Guild, Jacques Intriere, who also has a very successful club fitting and club making studio. The surprise is that custom club makers like Jacques don't necessarily want to provide you with brands you're not familiar with, they take the components from the most popular manufacturers and build the club that is exactly right for your game, whether your a beginner or scratch golfer. We also break down a lot of technical terms that are familiar in the industry but may not mean anything to the average golf consumer.http://ClubFittersGuild.orgWant to watch the full interview and see some of her work?

552: Bobby Clampett was the Low Amateur at the 1979 US Open and the 1980 Masters. He played on the PGA Tour and the Champions Tour in addition to being a network golf announcer/commentator. After playing with over 1,000 amateurs at more than 220 Pro-Ams he noticed something about their divots that separates high handicappers from Tour players. “...the Touring pros had a swing bottom approximately 4 inches in front of the center of the golf ball. For every inch amateurs were behind that 4 inches, equated to, on average, 4 strokes per inch!" In this week’s episode Bobby talks with host Fred Greene about his history, greatest influences, the Golfing Machine, and his effective method of instruction called The Impact Zone. Bobby is going to be giving a “Golfing In The Zone Clinic” at Michael Murphy’s Golf In The Kingdom Marathon charity event on September 11-12, 2016 at Peacock Gap in San Rafael, CA.

543 Premium: 70% of All Golfers Play The Wrong Ball! AND Kicking It with Soul Kix.
Jun 07 2016 27 mins  
543 Premium: On any given round, there’s only one piece of golf equipment that is used on every shot…the ball. What most amateur players don’t realize is that 70% of all golfers are using the wrong ball, according to this week’s guest Dominic Selfa of Bridgestone Golf who sits down with host Fred Greene. Getting fitted for a golf ball is as important as getting fitted for clubs. So may players play a Titleist ProV1 because that’s what’s on the tour or is the most expensive. But that doesn’t mean it will help your game. The reality is that if you don’t have a swing speed over 100mph or can compress the ball to get a good amount of backspin, that is the wrong ball for you. Learn more about the new line of Bridgestone balls and how they are leading the way for every golfer to get properly fitted for the correct ball. http://BridgestoneGolf.comWatch the video interview with Dominic https://youtu.be/sz5on1IeV6MFor this Premium Episode, we also have another conversation from the ING Conference with Terry McEwen of SoulKix, an innovative shoe team that encourages the quirky/weird/artistic/different/inspired/ and “off-beaten” soul to create the own path of shoes. It’s actually a really fascinating story of a father helping his son find a mission and path in life after the young man, at 19, was homeless living in a makeshift tent on top of a skyscraper in San Francisco. With Father’s Day coming, it’s a beautiful story of love and success.http://Soulkix.com

510 Premium: Taking One Shot At A Time…Easy To Think. Harder To Do!
Oct 13 2015 23 mins  
510: Jim Venetos has exposed us to a entirely new thought process on ball striking over the last few Golf Smarter Podcast episodes, and the feedback from listeners has been incredible. If you’ve been paying attention to his advice, you’re probably hitting the ball more consistently, with a draw, and probably even further. But Jim also talks about having a balanced “Mind. Body. Soul.” approach to the game. In this episode, we dig into visualization, which is what he considers the ‘soul’ aspect of the game. This is the ability to be creative, to see the shot before you hit it, and the ability to feel the shot before you hit it. We close the show with a tip that is also a video on our GolfSmarterTV channel. If you’ve been listening to Jim on the podcast, you really owe it to yourself to watch the really helpful videos that compliment the conversations. The latest is called “How To Make Your Next Golf Shot Using Visualization” Guide to complete Golf Smarter LibraryI'm participating in the Walk To End Alzheimer's on October 24 in Washington DC.

Aug 19 2014 37 mins  
450: Game Golf is the hottest golf technology on the market today and it could be the most unique game improvement tool you'll ever use. In Spring 2013 (episode #376) we first met CEO John McGuire when he was raising funds to bring the product to market. The GOLF SMARTER community displayed more support then any other group who participated in the Indigogo funding campaign. Now Game Golf is available, and after using it since October 2013, my game has improved, my scores have gone down, and I’ve broken 80 six times! Before Game Golf, I hadn’t had a round in the 70s in over 5 years and only did it 3 times. In this episode, John talks about how PGA Tour Players, the PGA of America, and the Golf Channel have all become investors. Also he shares his excitement after seeing news reports the day before we recorded that President Obama has been using Game Golf as well.This is part 1 of a 2 part conversation. Up next in Part 2, we will talk about how to use Game Golf, how to analyze the data, how it improves your game, new pricing, and most importantly, how Golf Smarter Members get an exclusive discount not found any where else. We also have just published 2 new videos about Game Golf on our GolfSmarterTV channel.

Feb 11 2014 40 mins  
423: Martin Chuck, creator of TourStriker returns for part 2 of our conversation. In this episode, host Fred Greene grills Martin to provide us with the Top 5 most common swing flaws that he sees in his amateur students. Each of these flaws on their own will greatly reduce your success in getting the ball off the ground, going far and at your target. Some people suffer from just one, but many golfers combine all of these errors and wonder what's wrong with their clubs. Martin has published a significant library of incredibly helpful videos on YouTube. The specific video he shares with us is a great drill to practice in the off season. In an effort to keep our heads down, so many golfers don't follow through. This video is a specific drill on how to follow through without lifting your head. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MaCMiAslT_kThe video is posted in our blog at GolfSmarter.com. The latest product from TourStriker that was just introduced at the 2014 PGA Merchandise Show is the Smart Ball that keeps your hands and arms in sync with the body. The Smart Ball will be released to the general public soon, but before it hits the streets, Martin is offering a 10% discount (and free shipping in the US) to the GOLF SMARTER community. There are only a few hundred of these available, so act fast. To get the discount on the TourStriker Smart Ball, and ALL products available at TourStriker.com, use the checkout code (one word) “golfsmarter”. Again, free shipping of any product is only for contiguous US orders only.






420: Winning The Battle Within - The Return of Dr. Glen Albaugh
Jan 21 2014 33 mins  
420: The NFL Seattle Seahawks are going to the Super Bowl XLVIII led by head coach of Pete Carroll. Pete is a long time friend, and former sports psychology student at University of Pacific of this week’s guest, Dr. Glen Albaugh. On the cover of Glen’s book, “Winning the Battle Within” Coach Carroll is quoted as saying “Glen’s teachings helped form my coaching philosophy.” Whether you’re rooting for Pete and the Seahawks or not, you have to admire his attitude, and his approach to competition and winning. Dr. Glen Albaugh has created a unique Applied Sport Psychology Consulting Service for a wide range of professional and amateur golfers. Formerly a sports psychology instructor at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California for 28 years where he coached the Pacific Tigers golf team. It was during this time, while working with the finest sports psychologists, coaches and golf instructors in the world, that he formulated the basis for the principles in his renowned book, which was authored with Michael Bowker, Winning the Battle Within. These principles have been refined over the years through applications and consultations with established touring pros, and a broad-base of amateurs – juniors to elite.By establishing structure in pre, post and in-between shot routines, Glen gives golfers the ability to apply his most profound insight “the perfect swing is the one you trust”. In Winning the Battle Within – this podcast episode, the book, and his workshop/consultations – Glen features quality practice describing drills that will enhance learning and improve performance. This is part 1 of our conversation based on Glen’s New Year Greeting on how to lower scores and increase enjoyment of your game in 2014. Part2 is for Members Only.
