In the conclusion of our one hour conversation, Fred Shoemaker of Extraordinary Golf answers listener's questions about his school, playing golf with your spouse, and gaining a full understanding of how to "experience" on the course. He also offers his opinion on the State of the Golf Industry and more.

"When something is outside of your world view, it can be a very scary thing." Fred has a magical way to deliver his perspective that is transformational, because he's not interested in the minutia of informational conversations.

Congratulations to Dan Mackie of Milton, Florida. He's our final winner of a free box of tournament quality Dixon Earth Golf Balls.

Thanks to Mike Perski for this week's quote.

Will getting better at golf really make you happy? The immediate answer to many golfers is yes! But Fred Shoemaker, author of Extraordinary Golf and Extraordinary Putting says that people are in search of so much more than lower scores. His goal is to provide tools that will allow each golfer to be able to teach himself, gain piece of mind and play without fear.

Congratulations to Lucas Welter of Mendocino CA and Matthew Koveleski of Fairborn OH, who have won a box of Dixon Earth balls.

Welcome to the first episode of Golf Smarter "For Members Only"! As a member you receive a free subscription to Fairways + Greens Magazine, so I thought it would be nice for you to meet the editor in a discussion that's based on reviewing this year's Masters, the magic that is The Masters, and a lot, lot more. Darrin Bunch and Vic Williams have grown this magazine for eleven years, but because it's regional, you may have never read it before. There's great information that focuses on travel, lifestyle and personalities that make this game so lovable.

Part of our conversation included giving away a Fairways + Greens "FG" hat, congratulations to James Emmen Oklahoma City, OK who may be the only person in Oklahoma to wear an FG hat, so wear it proudly.

Also want to announce that Regis Grattan of Shickshiiney, PA, and Scott Burg of Beachwood, OH have won a free box of Dixon Earth Golf Balls in addition to the box that they'll receive for becoming a Golf Smarter Member.

If you are in Northern California on April 26, stop by the Fairways + Greens Magazine tent at the Haggin Oaks Golf Expo in Sacramento CA. I will be there to say Hi! on Saturday from Noon to 3. I'll also give away a free pair of Alias Footwear golf shoes.

Don't forget, as a Member, you are automatically entered into all contests, but you can increase your chances of winning by entering each contest individually as well. We plan to always give away one prize for Members and an additional one for free subscribers, so this is another benefit of your membership.

As a custom club builder, Dan Sacks strives to gain enough insight into his customers' game so that he makes sure that they have the absolute best tools in their bag. His goal is to get each golfer to hit the ball in the center of the club face, because if you can't hit the seet spot, you are at a distinct disadvantage. Dan spent his apprenticeship traveling across the country working for Cleveland Golf and Hot Stix doing custom fitting and learning all about every type of golf club. This is part one of our conversation with Dan. Part two is answering listener questions, but will only be available to Golf Smarter Members coming up in the near future.

Next episode is For Members Only so please join.
