Golf Smarter#390 - Golf Coach Andy Walker has played competitively at the highest levels for 31 years which includes 28 professional victories. From multiple amateur to professional Tours to an appearance on Big Break, he's learned that there isn’t one way to play good golf and win tournaments. The single constant factor is that playing good golf takes Perfect Preparation. Andy’s success as a coach includes Jason Gore. Andy and host Fred Greene speak in depth about the Pre & Post Shot routines and how to asses the success and/or failure of each shot. He also provides a walking tour of the brand new 7,500 sq. ft. state-of-the-art Legacy Performance Center.

GSfMO#387 John “Lag” Erickson returns for a Members Only episode to break down his teaching method of improving your swing from impact backwards. We also discuss why bifurcation should be in place so that the USGA and the Tour have different rules. John feels very strongly that it all started going downhill when they allowed metal clubs instead of woods. Now that they’ve officially ruled against anchored putting, are hybrids next...in 30 years? Forget new rules, how ‘bout a new tour?!?? We get into a deeper conversation about why he thinks everyone would play much better if they knew how to hit with persimmon woods. Strategy is also a very important topic when we discuss how to play better and lower your scores. Once you learn how to hit straight and become a better ball striker, then strategy, or course management, becomes critically important.
