438 & 439: Tony Manzoni, one of the most sought after coaches on the GolfSmarter podcast shares his life long pursuit of Ben Hogan’s golf swing secret. Years ago Tony received a letter written in Hogan’s hand that explains his secret to becoming a great ball striker. Since then Tony has taught thousands of students and has coached the College Of The Desert golf team to 27 consecutive Conference Championships.
Tony has taken his learnings and has written about it in The Lost Fundamental. It's now a book and DVD, but only available in our Golfers'Mart at GolfSmarter.com.
This is the complete hour long conversation that also covers a detailed discussion on the short game swing and how it differs than the full swing that is discussed in The Lost Fundamental.
This week we also have an additional bonus for Golf Smarter Members. In this blog post, there's a GREAT green side chipping video tip from Tony that is only found on The Lost Fundamental DVD.
436-37: Robert Trent Jones Sr. is regarded as the most historically significant golf architect of the 20th century. The fabric of golf in America - possibly the world - is embodied in the extraordinary career of Robert Trent Jones in golf course design. In this abbreviated conversation with New York Times bestselling author and internationally distinguished historian James R. Hansen, Hansen shares the compelling life story of the man who designed or redesigned a staggering 400+ courses spread over 43 U.S. states and 27 other nations, including instantly recognizable names as Spyglass Hill in California, and Ballybunion (New Course) in Ireland.
James R. Hansen is a Professor of History at Auburn University in Alabama, a lifelong golfer, and his first book in 2005 "First Man" is the only authorized biography of astronaut Neil Armstrong.
The book is available in hardcopy or ebook versions in our Golfers’Mart book section at GolfSmarter.com
