546: Common question: What’s the best way to get my child interested in playing golf? Finally an answer that works, is fun, and has a school curriculum designed by education professionals. SNAG (Starting New at Golf) is the best “first-touch” program I’ve seen. It uses big clubs & balls, bright colors and language that all children would understand. But it’s not just for children, this system works for anyone who’s never held a golf club before. Our guest is John Johnson. The video includes the full interview and Golf Smarter host Fred Greene’s first swing with the Super SNAG Launcher (Driver) getting a Super SNAG Hole in One!

543 Premium: On any given round, there’s only one piece of golf equipment that is used on every shot…the ball. What most amateur players don’t realize is that 70% of all golfers are using the wrong ball, according to this week’s guest Dominic Selfa of Bridgestone Golf who sits down with host Fred Greene. Getting fitted for a golf ball is as important as getting fitted for clubs. So may players play a Titleist ProV1 because that’s what’s on the tour or is the most expensive. But that doesn’t mean it will help your game. The reality is that if you don’t have a swing speed over 100mph or can compress the ball to get a good amount of backspin, that is the wrong ball for you. Learn more about the new line of Bridgestone balls and how they are leading the way for every golfer to get properly fitted for the correct ball.

For this Premium Episode, we also have another conversation from the ING Conference with Terry McEwen of SoulKix, an innovative shoe team that encourages the quirky/weird/artistic/different/inspired/ and “off-beaten” soul to create the own path of shoes. It’s actually a really fascinating story of a father helping his son find a mission and path in life after the young man, at 19, was homeless living in a makeshift tent on top of a skyscraper in San Francisco. With Father’s Day coming, it’s a beautiful story of love and success.
