For Members Only #403 The recent USGA "While We're Young" ad campaign is based on a snarky line from the classic golf film “Caddyshack” delivered by comedian Rodney Dangerfield. The irony of the USGA's focus is that Dangerfield's character is everything they seem to be against to protect the "integrity of the game". Our guest is Kiel Christianson of TravelGolf.com who's recent article "While We're Young -- The Curse of Slow Play" and subsequent online feedback brings the USGA to the mat. In the article and on this episode we focus on his 13 points on how to pick up the pace of play.

For Members Only #402 Fred Shoemaker of Extraordinary Golf returns to introduce us to his new DVD “The Secret to Transforming Your Game” which compliments both books “Extraordinary Golf” and “Extraordinary Putting”. If you’re not familiar with Fred’s methods, be prepared to have your normal perceptions of improvement challenged, “You’ll become a ‘golfer’ when learning becomes more important than the outcome of your shot.” Fred and the teachers from his Top 25 School (Golf Magazine) explore the content of golf, such as swing plane, solid contact, etc., but not in the way you might imagine. The Extraordinary Golf Schools foster a golfers’ ability to self-coach, to integrate deeper and broader aspects of learning, including how to work with information and how to develop a mastery practice. Most golfers are far more able than they believe, but they haven’t learned to develop--or access-- what they have. Extraordinary Golf is a game-changer.

Purchase the Extraordinary Golf DVD “The Secret To Transforming Your Game” right now with your Members Only discount in our Golfers’Mart for $39.95 +s/h. Due to restrictions in our agreement, this price is not public and cannot be shared publicly. Both books are also available in our Golfers’Mart at GolfSmarter.com.

You can also see the trailer to the DVD in our blog post from today’s show.

For Members Only #401 - Jim Waldron of Balance Point Golf Schools continues his conversation with host Fred Greene because they still have to eat dessert! In part 2 of our conversation, Jim and Fred follow up on the depth of the Yips, understanding your own consistency, how much improvement can be had with the right teacher, the acceptance of “the possibility of failure”, the art of shot making, and how critically important it is to stay in the moment. The score is the outcome and shouldn’t be important until the round is completely over. Jim quotes Ben Hogan as saying ”The downswing is a terrible time to take a golf lesson”.

GSfMO#400 - Dinner with Jim Waldron of Balance Point Golf Schools is host Fred Greene's last stop on his Oregon golf trip. During a delicious meal at a Portland Thai restaurant they discuss one of Jim's specialties - the YIPS. Jim is a leading expert on curing the yips and golfers from around the world come to him to get help. Most people associate the yips with putting, but it's much broader than that, and it is fixable.

For more information about Jim's schools and individual lessons, visit BalancePointGolf.com

Jim returns for dessert and a Members Only episode which is a longer conversation digging deeper into the yips and associated problems. We also go into depth on how to improve your game by being "mentally engaged and emotionally disengaged".
