For this episode of Golf we have golf historian and author Al Barkow as Dennis’ co-host. Together, Dennis and Al wonder why Tiger’s first tournament win in years is worth more than McIlroys, wonder how much somebody has to bribe the Chinese to get a trophy out of customs, and talk a little golf history.
Dennis and co-host Tom Utsler (teaching professional at Angel Park Golf Academy) review Hennie Otto’s win at the South African Open, debate if golf is headed for the Olympics, and close out by helping us decide how many hybrid clubs are too many on this edition of Golf and Other Fore-Letter Words.
Dennis and his co-host Tony Lawson (lead instructor at The Wildhouse Golf Academy) review a big win for the American squad in the President’s Cup, demonstrate Dennis’ lack of musicicality, and provide some advice on dealing bunker shots in wet sand in the episode of Golf.
It’s not a surprise that for many, golf is more of a mental challenge then a physical one. To help, Golf and Other Fore-Letter Words is joined by mental coach Mark Guadagnoli, PhD. Together, Mark and Dennis review Greg Chalmers’ win in Australia, give John Daly a tongue lashing for the real reason he doesn’t have enough balls, and helps answer our email and live chat questions about the mental aspects of the game.
Dennis and co-host Paul Brown (Southern Nevada Chapter Operations Coordinator) debate whether Player of the Year will be decided based on earnings or consistency. Then, we wonder why Yanni Tseng asked to be invited to play with the men only to decline the first invitation to do so. Finally, we answer a ton of golf questions.
