The Big-Time Advantages of Local Synergies Between Golf Courses – Clustering (Ep.33)

The advantages for golfers when multiple golf courses team up is obvious. We get more holes to play golf on for our money. What’s really cool is that when one course is closed for business because of a tournament or course maintenance procedure, we’ve got other options. Not only that, golf is just more fun when you have more variety…otherwise it’s just too easy right?

Disrupting the Online Clothing Retail Industry – Bogeybox Golf Club (Ep.32)

Super cool conversation with Nik Bando, founder of Bogeybox Golf Club. So, Nik figured out that he (along what turns out to be a ton of other people out there) hates to go shopping – especially for clothing. I’m definitely included in that group. His solution is one that plays on a beautiful blend of technology and white glove personalized customer service.

Nick Faldo Wedge Play Clinic – Benchmarking Distances & Tournament Preparation (Ep.23)

This clinic was conducted for 1 hour and 20 minutes for elite junior golfers, so Nick is talking about real competitive topics. He made a point to mention earlier in the session that playing tournament golf is an entirely different sport than casual golf…requiring different approaches. I was very lucky to have the chance to participate in the group of only 12 -15 people on hand that day at Bella Colina in Orlando.

The Business Case for Free Golf Lessons | Keynote at Golf Academy of America (Ep.15)

One of my strongest presentations to date. Lots of continuing dialogue and positive feedback from the audience on this one…Here’s my keynote speech at The Golf Academy of America’s Orlando Campus. The talk is geared for the students (all ages) at the school getting educated on careers in the golf industry – golf instruction, golf operations, tournament play, and golf management.

Bunker Play Basics – How to Develop Your Stock Sand Shot (Ep.14)

This episode is all about bunker play. In basic terms, we handle bunker shots a lot like pitch shots, but there are a few important variables we’ll need to learn to account for. First, everything is determined by the lie. Learning to assess what you’re capable of from different lies comes with practice and simple trial and error. If the ball is sitting down, we need the club to dig into the sand. If we’ve got a good lie, we’ll want the club to slide into the sand.
