432: Putting is Overrated! An Introduction to Golfmetrics with Professor Mark Broadie
Author: Fred Greene
Tue, Apr 15, 2014
432: What does it take to drop 10 strokes from your score? Traditional stats -- fairways/greens/putts per round -- don't answer these questions. Golfmetrics do! This episode is a sampling from our full 65 minute two-part interview with creator Columbia University Business School Professor Mark Broadie on his eye-opening new book "Every Shot Counts: Using the Revolutionary Strokes-Gained Approach to Improve Your Golf Performance and Strategy." Using the strokes gained approach that Broadie helped develop for the PGA Tour, you can learn how to save strokes by making better decisions on the course.

428: The Golf Rules - Stroke Play...A Fun and Informative New Book by Richard Todd Author: Fred Greene
Tue, Mar 18, 2014
428: Richard Todd was trained on the rules of golf by the USGA and the PGA. His new book "The Golf Rules: Stroke Play - Learn The Rules of Golf By Watching Others Break Them" is an entertaining little book that presents the rules of golf in a funny, short story format.
Unlike the painfully dry legalese of the USGA's Rules of Golf, Richard's book takes you on a round with a typical foursome as they encounter...and break.. the rules.
In addition to being a lifelong golfer, he's also a longtime Golf Smarter Member.
Pt2 is available for immediate download in our Golfers'Mart at GolfSmarter.com.

424: Keep Your Swing. Lower Your Score. (Author Mike Pile) Fred@GolfSmarterPodcast.com
Author: Fred Greene
Thu, Feb 20, 2014
424: Mike Pileâ€™s bio says that heâ€™s been playing golf for over 35 years and enjoying it for maybe about 12 minutes. Like every mid-handicapper he's tried everything to get better; lessons, practice, advice, new equipment, tips, etc. but they never generated sustainable low scores because it is nearly impossible to play enough to put them into practice. Until now that is.
In part 1 of 2 we meet Mike and discus his great little book, â€śKeep Your Swing. Lower Your Score.â€ť which offers simple, practical advice about the management and perspective of your game that will improve your golf game without having to practice, quit your job, ignore your family or get divorced. If you have a mid-handicap index and are someone who loves golf and really wants to improve, this book may very well help you achieve sustainable lower scores hole by hole, round to round. Mikeâ€™s book delivers practical advice that you can implement today, tomorrow and forever. There is nothing offered that cannot be sustained by the average handicapper who is lucky to play once a week. Keep Your Swing Lower Your Score will improve your game without requiring you to change your swing, take lessons or commit hours of time which most of us simply do not have.
The book is available in our Golfersâ€™Mart at GolfSmarter.com. Download File - 14.7 MB (Click to Play on Mobile Device) Listen To This Podcast (Streaming Audio)

Martin has published a significant library of incredibly helpful videos on YouTube. The specific video he shares with us is a great drill to practice in the off season. In an effort to keep our heads down, so many golfers don't follow through. This video is a specific drill on how to follow through without lifting your head.
The video is posted in our blog at GolfSmarter.com.

420: Winning The Battle Within - The Return of Dr. Glen Albaugh Author: Fred Greene
Tue, Jan 21, 2014
420: The NFL Seattle Seahawks are going to the Super Bowl XLVIII led by head coach of Pete Carroll. Pete is a long time friend, and former sports psychology student at University of Pacific of this weekâ€™s guest, Dr. Glen Albaugh. On the cover of Glenâ€™s book, â€śWinning the Battle Withinâ€ť Coach Carroll is quoted as saying â€śGlenâ€™s teachings helped form my coaching philosophy.â€ť Whether youâ€™re rooting for Pete and the Seahawks or not, you have to admire his attitude, and his approach to competition and winning.
Dr. Glen Albaugh has created a unique Applied Sport Psychology Consulting Service for a wide range of professional and amateur golfers. Formerly a sports psychology instructor at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California for 28 years where he coached the Pacific Tigers golf team. It was during this time, while working with the finest sports psychologists, coaches and golf instructors in the world, that he formulated the basis for the principles in his renowned book, which was authored with Michael Bowker, Winning the Battle Within. These principles have been refined over the years through applications and consultations with established touring pros, and a broad-base of amateurs â€“ juniors to elite.
By establishing structure in pre, post and in-between shot routines, Glen gives golfers the ability to apply his most profound insight â€śthe perfect swing is the one you trustâ€ť. In Winning the Battle Within â€“ this podcast episode, the book, and his workshop/consultations â€“ Glen features quality practice describing drills that will enhance learning and improve performance.
