On this edition of Next on the Tee we'll recap the US Open, talk about how the USGA handled the setup of Shinnecock Hills plus get a few playing lessons from Golf Academy Lead Instructor Rob Strano, and South Florida PGA Teacher of the Year Chris Czaja, plus hear about the hottest new equipment from SVP of Operations for the PGA Tour SuperStore, Randy Peitsch.
Top Instructor Rob Strano goes off on the USGA and how they handled the US Open and the set up of Shinnecock Hills. Rob talks about how they are an amateur organization trying to run a professional event and keep failing miserably. Hear his comments and suggestions for what needs to be done so it doesn't happen again next year at Pebble Beach.
PGA Tour SuperStore SVP of Operations shares his thoughts on the US Open and the impact it has on sales. They had a record breaking sales day on the Saturday before Father's Day, if that's any indication. Hear about some of the great services they offer that are free, like club fitting even if it's for your existing clubs no matter how long you've had them, golf ball fitting and even finding the perfect pair of shoes for your gate type. Randy also shared that 40% of all golf ball purchases are now for non-white golf balls. Players are now embracing all different colors. Hear all that and much more from Randy.
Chris Czaja - I got some much needed playing tips from Chris including how to play wedge shots from 80-100 yards in, how to hit better lag putts and short chip shots from right off the green.
