GSfMO#386 From Touring to Teaching, John “Lag” Erickson has seen golf from all sides and is concerned that the art of ball striking is disappearing. He contends that today’s highly advanced research to make clubs more forgiving is ruining the ability to become a great ball striker. Even the greatest players of today struggle when handed persimmon clubs, nor could they compete with the pre-metal club pros. It’s not just touch, but the sound of hitting balls has changed for the worst. Are you more interested in scoring than ball striking? John thinks you may be missing the point. He also says that the USGA and R&A hate golf.

For more, check out John's website at AdvancedBallStriking.com. Jon returns for Part 2 of our conversation in a Members Only episode to discuss his theories of instruction that teaches the swing from impact backwards.

Jon referred to the Shell’s Wonderful World of Golf classic matchup of Hogan vs. Snead. It’s now the featured video for you on the blog at GolfSmarter.com

GSfMO#385 The story of a golfer’s dream: caddying on the fabled Old Course in St. Andrews. “An American Caddie in St. Andrews - Growing Up, Girls, and Looping on the Old Course” is the focus of a very entertaining Members Only episode with young author Oliver Horovitz. Being forced to take a gap year after getting accepted to Harvard, Oliver, a driven young man, chose to spend the next school year at University of St. Andrews in Scotland. He left home for the UK, took a full course load, joined the golf team, and had way too much fun to go home for the summer. This is the story of his eye opening summers waking up at 4:30a most mornings to line up at the caddie shack for the honor of escorting golfers of all shapes, sizes and skill levels at the renowned Home of Golf.

"An American Caddie in St. Andrews" is now available in both Kindle and Hardback in our Golfers’ Mart at GolfSmarter.com
