537 Premium:  A Professional Baseball Player Takes Up Golf After Retiring and Can’t Believe How Hard It Is with Conor Jackson

537: Conor Jackson played Major League Baseball for seven seasons with Arizona, Oakland, and Boston. But he didn’t take up golf until after he retired from the Big Leagues. He was lured in by charity tournaments, discovered how challenging it was and, like many of us, fell in love. Even with a career .271 batting average, golf hasn’t come easy for him.

Here's a video excerpt of today's episode when I asked Conor if it's easy for baseball players to pick up golf

536 Premium: Ten Reasons Why I Hate to Play Golf With You! featuring writer Rory Hughes

536: We all have our pet peeves that irritate us when playing golf with others. Like talking on the phone. Forgetting (or making up) your score. Not having cash with you to pay your debts or the cart girl. Saying “I never play like this”, and more. Writer and High School English teacher/Golf Coach Rory Hughes recently published an article on this topic called “10 Things I Hate About You” and this week we break it down and have a lot of fun coming up with some more. 

Rory’s latest piece is about getting your child to hopefully love the same sports as you. 

If you’d like to get a glimpse of one of fun embarrassing points Fred brings up, watch this short video clip.

535 Premium: Lessons from The Masters On How to Reduce Stress, Make Better Swings, and Shoot Lower Scores with Jamie Zimron

535: The 2016 Masters was an amazing showcase of professional golf at the highest level. But upon closer inspection, it also showed that there are moments of the PGA Tour that look an awful lot like weekend golf by mid and high handicappers. Dropping the ball in the water two shots in a row, 3 and 4 putting from inside 10 feet, trying to make difficult shots in windy conditions, all these and more come from a place that’s common to all golfers…poor decision making. And all that leads to stress which have disastrous effects on your swing and your round. This week we speak with old friend Jamie Zimron, LPGA, aka The Golf Sensei on how to reduce stress which leads to better swings and lower scores.
