Golf Smarter For Members Only #395 - Drivers sell. The new adjustable Drivers sell REALLY well. But will they make a difference in your game? Club Fitter Nick Manzano for The Golf Mart and host Fred Greene walk down a wall of drivers in the San Rafael, CA store to discuss what is unique about each of the different 2013 Drivers. We also discuss purchasing used clubs, last year’s models, or getting your clubs repaired.

The Golf Mart is part of the World Wide Golf Shops group that includes The Golf Mart, Roger Dunn Golf Shops, Van's Golf Shops, and Golfers' Warehouse with stores across the USA and online shopping at WorldWideGolfShops.com.

If you enjoy this 2 part conversation or are just a fan of golf equipment, check out the books by Tom Wishon that Nick refers to multiple times. The books are available in our Golfers’Mart at Golf Smarter.com

GOLF SMARTER #394- Getting fitted for clubs will improve your game, but many fear that custom fitting means added cost. Custom Club Fitter Nick Manzano has operated his own custom club making business and been involved with the manufacturing of knockoffs, but recently he's chosen the path of many club fitters by going to work for a golf specialty store, or what he calls a "big box golf store". GOLF SMARTER host Fred Greene met with Nick at The Golf Mart in San Rafael, CA, to discuss the advantages that he offers the average golfer of expertise, detailed fitting specs, and getting to choose from the top name brand clubs. Better than custom fitters working from their garage or even your courses' Pro Shop, The Golf Mart has relationships with ALL manufacturers so that you have the widest selection to choose from when you're in the market for new clubs.

The Golf Mart is part of the World Wide Golf Shops group that includes The Golf Mart, Roger Dunn Golf Shops, Van's Golf Shops, and Golfers' Warehouse with stores across the USA and online shopping at WorldWideGolfShops.com.

In part2 of our conversation For Members Only, Nick and Fred spend nearly an hour on the showroom floor discussing most of the Drivers that are available today and what makes each special.

#393 for Members Only - Ken Doherty returns for part 2 of our in-studio conversation that covers a wide range of topics that are top of mind, and others brought up by listeners. First we discuss the various programs and recent decisions by the USGA. Do they really want to “Grow The Game”?! Host Fred Greene sees the new “While I’m Still Young” campaign as condescending, but as a Head Golf Professional, Ken welcomes any help to pick up pace of play. We also address the anchored putter issue and how it impacts seniors and those with other physical limitations. Ken answers a question from a listener about how much playing time for a 10 year old is appropriate. Lastly we get into mechanics and “intent” on playing bunkers, both green-side and fairway traps.

Editor’s note: Fred referred to a previous guest from The Palms in La Quinta as J.D. Salinger. Ah, hello? Fred, where's your head?!?? J.D. Salinger is the author of “Catcher in the Rye”. J.D. Ebersberger (episode #371) is the COO and Director of Golf at The Palms.

Wow, how time flies! We’re sneaking up to episode #400! Let me know if you’d like a replay of a specific interview from the archives or get a guest to return.

#392 - Ken Doherty - Head Golf Professional at Marin Country Club returns to discuss how much your intent impacts the mechanics of hitting the ball. Whether you’re hitting irons, hybrids, woods, driver, or bunkers doesn’t matter. As long as you focus on a target and are clear about your intent, then you can stop thinking about mechanics which will free you to hit better shots.

Next episode is for Members Only episode with Ken returning to focus on the difference between hitting from fairway and greenside bunkers.

#391 for Members Only - NFL Quarterback Peyton Manning defied all the odds by having a successful season after recovering from neck surgery. Muscle Activation Technique (MAT) Therapy developed in Denver, CO by Greg Roskopf has been credited to his miraculous recovery. MAT Therapy has also been significant for other NFL stars like John Elway and Chris Simms. PGA Professionals and amateur golfers have also testified to being able to play more, better, and pain free even after their first session!

Laura Lohrmann is a golfer and a certified MAT Specialist who introduces us to the details of this method that “Bridges the Gap between Fitness and Rehabilitation”. She shares what it is, how it works, how it differs from Chiropractics (muscle vs skeletal), and how immediate the results can effect your body, and your game!
