In this episode, I'm joined by former PGA Champions Hal Sutton and Shaun Micheel plus Top Instructors Jason Hase and Eric Johnson.
Hal Sutton shares his thoughts on golf in the Olympics, Xander Schauffele's gold medal performance, how that victory might propel him to winning his first major, Louis Oosthuizen's summer, and how to develop an attitude for winning. I also get his thoughts on how US Ryder Cup Captain Steve Stricker can prevent the team room from becoming a circus with Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, and Patrick Reed all on the team.
Shaun Micheel catches us up on his performances at the Sr. PGA Championship and Sr. Open Championship that he just arrived back from. We also hear about trying to prepare for playing links golf, and whatever became of the 7 iron he hit to 2 inches on the last hole of the 2003 PGA Championship, which may be the best approach shot in major championship history.
Top Instructor Jason Hase takes us around his home course Buffalo Dunes which Golf Magazine ranked #8 among the best municipal courses in the country. He also gives us a tip for how to stop hitting our wedges fat.
Eric Johnson is a Golf Digest Top 100 Instructor. He takes us inside his new home course, Yellowstone Golf Club in Big Sky Montana. Eric also weighs in on the upcoming US Ryder Cup team, and how we can be mentally strong when we're faced with those 2-5 foot knee knockers.
