Dean is Chairman of the organizing committee and knows that you’d be amazed and what’s involved in logistics and budgets to run a USGA sanctioned event. This conversation is accompanied by a complete PowerPoint slide set that can be seen when you watch this episode at YouTube.com/GolfSmarterTV (link specific).

In this episode we explore improvements with your putter, 8 iron, and lob wedge. We’ve scheduled to have him come back next week to discuss more wedges, long irons, hybrids, fairway metals, and drivers.

593: Jim Venetos returns to discuss why we should stop watching the Tour Pros or listening to TV announcers telling us why we should swing like the best in the world. We don’t get to practice like them, so why should we emulate something we can’t repeat. If you just focus your practice with bump’n’run shots, pitching and making 3 foot putts, you’ll get much better, much faster. As in the title, just keep your perspective on who you are, and don’t have unreal expectations, you’ll be amazed at how much better you’ll play.

592: Want to play golf more consistently? Stop thinking about all the moving parts of your body and focus on the CLUB!  Ed LeBeau of the Heartland Golf Schools was a disciple of Manuel de la Torre (featured on episode 564 which was a replay of #187 in honor of his passing) who learned from his father Angel de la Torre, who worked with Ernest Jones. These names may not mean a lot to you, but if you want to be a more consistent golfer, then you should learn about these teachings on focusing on the three simple points we discuss that will free your mind and lower your scores.

591: If playing golf in college is a goal for you, or someone you know, then you want to hear this conversation with Nick Tannahill, the Golf Head Recruiting Coach for NCSASports.org. Whether you're just looking for free recruiting advice or are seriously interested in how to get college scholarships, they make sure you get expert advice, completely personalized to you, to help you get recruited. Nick and other scouts at NCSA Sports often hear the question, "Do I really need a recruiting profile? If I'm good enough, won't coaches come to scout me?" No one, no matter how much of a star player, can rely on serendipity in the scouting process. Because of college recruiting regulations, time constraints, and their athletic department's budget, college coaches don't have the resources to travel the country to see recruits.

590: David DePula is one of the lucky people who left a job he didn’t love to pursue something he did. Golf. He was a frustrated golfer and understands the lack of consistency we all desire.

586 Dave Pelz could be the most sought after and successful short game golf coach on the planet. But he’s so much more! Dave’s a scientist, researcher, author, entrepreneur, club designer, short game guru, and a dedicated family man. In our conversation that goes longer than an hour, Dave gives us a glimpse into his personal history that starts with being a frustrated college golfer at Indiana University who was repeatedly beat by Jack Nicklaus. He then moved on to NASA working as a scientist/researcher/data analyst for the Goddard Space Center. But his love of golf never left his blood, so he took a year off to start a business that ended as a total disaster.  He provides a lot more about his history, and of course provides some short game and practice advice. He also shares his prediction for this year’s Masters. Keep your eyes/ears open for his newest Kickstarter book/video project on Green Reading. The crowdsource funding program will run for 60 days starting May 8, 2016. Help support the project and get your package earlier and for less than the regular public. It will be found at pelzgolf.com/greenreading.

579: Stephen Ladd is recognized as one of the top Golf Performance Coaches in the nation. He specializes in golf fitness, nutrition and mental game strategies. He founded Renegade Golf in 1994, a full decade before “golf fitness” became a buzz word. He teaches thousands of golfers of all levels from over 47 countries via the Internet and his books, videos and audio program how to train their bodies and brains for peak performance.  Stephen has taken a rather unorthodox path in terms of education and accumulation of knowledge, combining traditional academic environments, mentorships, and self-described “journeys”. As an undergraduate student, he studied exercise physiology, psychology, and philosophy. After graduating summa cum laude from Miami University, he continued his graduate work in East-West Psychology and Comparative Religion at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco from 1991-1993.
