Mastering Bunker Play with Tips & Tricks You Can Use (And Myths to Avoid) with Josh Zander

944: Josh Zander returns to share his expertise on bunker play in golf. He emphasizes the misconception that players should hit behind the ball in bunkers, explaining that the low point of the swing should be past the ball. He also discusses the importance of body positioning and creating a steep angle of attack in bunker shots. Josh advises players to assess the lie and adjust their technique accordingly, highlighting the need for different clubs and techniques based on bunker conditions. He also emphasizes the importance of having the right attitude and mindset when approaching bunker shots. Josh and Fred cover topics such as setup, club selection, and shot selection based on the lie and slope of the bunker. They also debunk common myths and provide tips for practicing bunker shots. TakeawaysThe low point of the swing in bunker shots should be past the ball, not behind it.Body positioning and creating a steep angle of attack are crucial in bunker play.Assessing the lie and adjusting technique based on bunker conditions is essential.Having the right attitude and mindset when approaching bunker shots can make a significant difference in performance. Proper setup is crucial for successful bunker shots. For uphill lies, set your shoulders slightly into the slope and keep the handle back. For downhill lies, get your shoulders with the slope and have the handle forward.When playing bunker shots, focus on hitting the sand a few inches behind the ball, rather than trying to hit the ball directly.Fairway bunkers require a different approach than greenside bunkers. Play the ball more forward in your stance, open the club face slightly, and have a shallow angle of attack to get the ball up and out of the bunker.Avoid common myths such as hitting way behind the ball or cutting across the ball in bunker shots. Instead, focus on proper technique and understanding the variables of each bunker shot.Practice bunker shots with variability to prepare for different situations on the course. Challenge yourself with different lies and shot options to become comfortable and confident in bunker play.***Summary was AI generated from riverside.fm, our recording platform.This is our final call for you to join host Fred Greene and other Golf Smarter listeners for a once in a lifetime Golf Smarter Royal Adventure to Northern Ireland!

Matt also discusses the influence of Vaughn Taylor, Kelly Slater, and Adam Scott in the L.A.B. Golf story. The podcast series is described as an audio book, with each episode weaving together multiple voices to create a compelling narrative arc. This conversation covers a range of topics, including the importance of reporting and authenticity in broadcasting, Kelly Slater's influence on golf, the success of L.A.B. Golf and the importance of tour recognition, the marketing of golf putters and the concept of “letting go of control to gain control”, the transformation of Lucas Glover and the power of never giving up.

Short Game Tricks & Tips You Can Use (And Myths to Avoid) with Jim Waldron

941.  Summary: In this conversation, Jim Waldron and Fred Greene discuss various aspects of the short game in golf and dispel some common myths. They emphasize the need for solid contact and distance control in the short game, the role of pivot in generating power, the issue of scooping and Jim provides tips for controlling spin in different conditions. They cover topics such as distance wedges, taking spin off shots, the kinematic sequence, finesse swings, distance control, trajectory control, spin control, rhythm and tempo, and scoring in the short game. Jim and Fred also discuss various aspects of putting and chipping in golf. There are many misconceptions about putting, including the illusion created by watching professional golfers on TV.  The conversation then shifts to using an iron as a putter and the technique of the putt chip shot. They explore the resurgence of Scottish chipping and its technique, as well as when to use this shot. Finally, they discuss club selection and the carry-roll ratio in classical chipping on medium-sized greens.Takeaways The short game is an under-taught and poorly taught aspect of golf.Solid contact and distance control are crucial in the short game.Pivot plays a significant role in generating power and controlling spin in the short game.Scooping is a common issue in the short game that needs to be addressed.Controlling spin is essential in different conditions and shot types. Distance wedges are shots from about 65 to 120 yards that require medium spin and a lower trajectory.Tour pros try to take spin off distance wedges to have better control over the carry distance.The kinematic sequence is the transfer of energy from one body part to the next during the downswing, and it is different for power swings and distance wedges.In the short game, a finesse swing with less spin and a softer version of the full swing is preferred.Distance control in the short game is achieved through consistent length of backswing and a constant rhythm and tempo.Scoring in the short game requires chipping and pitching the ball close to the hole to increase the chances of one-putting.Watching professional golfers on TV can create misconceptions about putting.Lie angle balance and lab putters can improve putting performance.Using an iron as a putter can be effective for certain shots.The putt chip shot is a specialized short game shot that can be useful around the green.Scottish chipping is making a comeback in golf.Classical chipping is a foundational technique for the short game on medium-sized greens.***Summary was AI generated from riverside.fm, our recording platform.This is an invitation for you to join host Fred Greene and other Golf Smarter listeners for a once in a lifetime Golf Smarter Royal Adventure to Northern Ireland!

Proven By Science: Longer & Straighter Off The Tee Using Flightpath Golf Tees

926: All golf tees are not the same. Usually tees are cupped at the top so that you can set the ball on top and shoot in any direction. But we only hit in one direction when teeing off. Our guest, Dr. Daniel Whalen, an environmental engineer, golfer, and son of an inventor, realized that if you create an open area in the direction you’re hitting the ball, there’s less friction on the ball resulting in longer and straighter tee shots. Reviews from all over the internet have confirmed the science that Daniel has created. Learn more at flightpathgolf.com. Excited to announce that you can get a free box of 8 tees when you become a Golf Smarter Ambassador and open an upcoming episode.

Most Golfers Make Centered Contact On a Random Basis with Jamie Zimron, LPGA

914: Jamie Zimron of https://TheCenteredWay.com joins us for the first time in a couple years to talk about how important center contact on every one of your golf clubs will improve each ball strike, from driver to putter.

We’re so proud to congratulate Jamie for receiving the PGA SF Pride Golf Tournament “Excellence in Golf” award this week. That leads to a discussion on how the PGA and LPGA are so far ahead of other sports to openly embrace members of the LGBTQ+ community.

Learning The Golf Swing Through Physics with author Junshen "Jason" Wang

908: Junshen Wang is originally from Taiwan where he studied to be, and had a career as a mechanical engineer. After retirement, he, like many of us, fell in love with flyfishing and golf. As an engineer, he recognized that the golf swing and flyrod’s casting bore the same attributes that govern Newton’s Laws of Motion. So he had questions that he was determined to answer like: What is the crucial factor for the ball’s distance? What is the formula that determines Smash Factor, and why? Will a heavy golf club influence how far the ball goes? This week he shares his theories and his book called “Learning The Golf Swing Through Physics” available on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Learning-Golf-Swing-through-Physics/dp/B0C2S1MBXM.

Breaking 100 Is Not Going To Be Achieved By Just Working On The Range |. #901

901: Blake Jirges talks about the value of why golfers of all skill levels would benefit far more from on-course lessons vs just ball striking advice at the range.

Blake was recently named 2022 Southern California PGA Teacher of the Year and one of Golf Digest’s Best Young Teachers based on his teaching techniques, and performance as a golf instructor. He’s also Director of Player Development at Coto de Caza Golf Club.

A Beginner Documents His Quest to Become a Scratch Golfer | #896

896: Golf can’t be that difficult to understand, learn, and conquer, can it? Jerome Rufin believes it, so he launched a YouTube documentary series called “Scratch to Scratch” that documents his daily quest from knowing nothing about the sport…and I do mean nothing…to be a scratch golfer. The videos are informative, enlightening, compelling and sometimes frustrating to watch as he gets advanced instruction at a rapid pace. But it’s clear by watching that he, like many of us, is sometimes lost about what it all means and how it works. Even with a team of coaches and full time dedication, Jerome believes he could shoot par regularly in less than 5 years. In this conversation, we learn just how his innocent naiveté is keeping his spirits high and his frustration in check. https://www.youtube.com/@JeromeRufin Watch the complete interview at https://youtu.be/fhnZxqHTsHE This episode is brought to you by SwingU.com and the SwingU app. Go to swingu.com/upgrade and use promo code ‘golfsmarter’ to save 30% on your first year’s subscription to either the SwingU Plus or SwingU Pro..

His recognition of this common dilemma lead him to create a product directed at golfers of all skill levels called Sharp Focus Nutrition.

Manuel de la Torre's Disciple on The Definition of a "Swing" with Gary Sowinski, PGA | #877

877: Gary Sowinski spent more than 6 years working with and learning from Manuel de la Torre, author of Understanding The Golf Swing, and one of golf’s greatest instructors ever to instruct Tour Pros and recreational golfers. In this conversation we learn what Manuel demanded from his students and teachers, the concept of how the body moves, and how to define a ‘swing’. Manuel studied with Ernest Jones and his legendary father, Angel de la Torre.

FlightPath Golf tees: Has the Perfect Golf Tee finally Been Invented? | #872

872: There was something about the unique design and explanation of the FlightPath Golf Tee on Instagram that caught my eye, and I thought what the heck I’ll give it a try. During the first round, I noticed that my drives were going much straighter than usual, but gave myself more credit than the tees. But round after round, I was hitting more fairways and my yardage also increased. It took almost a year to go through the box of 8 tees, but I was hooked and ordered another. Now almost two years in, it was time to order another box, but this time, I needed to find out more. Our guest this week is the inventor, Daniel Whalen, PhD, an environmental engineer who was challenged by his inventor father to come up with something the golf world had never witnessed before. A USGA compliant tee that reduces frictional resistance and allows you to hit straighter and farther than ever before.

Golf+NFTs=A New Era In Golf! Introducing LinksDAO | golf SMARTER #833

833: Golf is generally not in the same conversation as Crypto Currency. And a lot of golfers may never have even heard of, or understand NFTs, or nonfungible tokens. But at the end of 2021 Mike Dudas had the idea of creating a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) for golf enthusiasts, with the ultimate goal of raising enough money to buy a golf course through the sale of NFTs. This would be a typical country club, but based in blockchain. So LinksDAO was born and sixteen days later they raised $11 Million dollars through the sale of a collection of NFTs. Our guests on this episode are two of the original founding members, Jim Daily and Adam Besvinick who share the story, educate us on NFTs and blockchain technology, what is Web3.0, and explain how you too can get involved with LinksDAO. To help us fill in the blanks of NFTs, host Fred Greene has brought along his son and “NFT Caddy”, Danny Greene, who is also the host of the Crypto Changemakers podcast.

If You’ve Seen a Wedge Used on Tour - It Doesn’t Belong In Your Bag! with Terry Koehler

812: Terry “The Wedge Guy” Koehler has spent his life in pursuit of creating the best wedge for amateur players. In this episode you’ll hear how the average golfer is getting fooled by purchasing wedges that we see on the PGA Tour.

Stix Golf Clubs are Determined to be an Industry Disruptor with CEO Gabe Coyne

797: Gabe Coyne has played golf for years and wanted a new set of clubs but wasn’t in a position to pay $2500 for a full set and bag, nor was he interested in a starter’s set for $250. As with many entrepreneurs, he saw an opening in the marketplace and an opportunity to be a disruptor in an established industry. As with a lot of millennial consumers, he wanted a product that looked great, was made of high quality material, and fit into an opening that has helped start many Kickstarter projects. So was born Stix Golf. For under $1000 you can now purchase a full brand new set of beautiful golf clubs, that includes irons, wedges, putter, Driver and a bag, and not be embarrassed to walk onto the first tee looking like you found these in the used bin a your local golf shop.
