451: John McGuire, CEO of Game Golf, returns for pt2 of our conversation on the hottest tech product in golf today. We discuss details on what you can learn about the best and worst parts of your game from the data collected. As with any data analysis, the real value is when you take the 10,000 foot view and see the big picture of your strengths and weaknesses.
John also announces for the first time anywhere a price drop from $249 to $199 for a new Game Golf. If you’re interested in purchasing a GameGolf, please go to GolfSmarter.com and click on their ad on our home page. That will let them know you were referred by this podcast.
John also provides an additional exclusive discount to Golf Smarter Members. Due to his contractual obligations with his partners and retail channels, we're not allowed to publicly provide information on what the discount is or how to get it. Please don't publicize that info on the web or he could be in big trouble, and it would definitely jeopardize our relationship.
450: Game Golf is the hottest golf technology on the market today and it could be the most unique game improvement tool you'll ever use. In Spring 2013 (episode #376) we first met CEO John McGuire when he was raising funds to bring the product to market. The GOLF SMARTER community displayed more support then any other group who participated in the Indigogo funding campaign. Now Game Golf is available, and after using it since October 2013, my game has improved, my scores have gone down, and I’ve broken 80 six times! Before Game Golf, I hadn’t had a round in the 70s in over 5 years and only did it 3 times.
In this episode, John talks about how PGA Tour Players, the PGA of America, and the Golf Channel have all become investors. Also he shares his excitement after seeing news reports the day before we recorded that President Obama has been using Game Golf as well.
This is part 1 of a 2 part conversation. Up next in Part 2, we will talk about how to use Game Golf, how to analyze the data, how it improves your game, new pricing, and most importantly, how Golf Smarter Members get an exclusive discount not found any where else.
We also have just published 2 new videos about Game Golf on our GolfSmarterTV channel. The first is my introduction and review of Game Golf, the second is another conversation with John as we’re playing 18 at Lake Merced Country Club in San Francisco.

Host Fred Greene also gives a recap of his round at Pasatiempo, which was discussed in the last episode.
448: Pasatiempo Golf Course has an amazing history that includes being the course that Bobby Jones played just before deciding that Alister MacKenzie should be the architect of his property at Augusta, Georgia, which became home to The Masters. Our guest is Ken Woods, Head Professional at Pasatiempo in the Santa Cruz mountains, just north of the Monterey Peninsula in California. Ken shares the full story of how Pasatiempo came to be in the late 1920’s, Alister MacKenzie’s design features, and the difficulty of the course.
We start the show with a short conversation with long time GOLF SMARTER member, Tim Kilkenny of Ohio, who made his first hole-in-one last week just after listening to the last episode where Darrin Gee explained how to sink one yourself..
