Golf Smarter Mulligans

Fred Greene

Golf’s all-time best selling instructional books* were published in 1957 and 1992, proving that great golf instruction never gets old. That’s why we've introduced Golf Smarter Mulligans, your second chance to gain insights and advice from the best instructors featured on the golfer’s podcast, Golf Smarter. Each week we’re going to re-release an archived interview from more than nine years of episodes that are no longer available. No penalty for the second time around! As we’ve shared since 2005, “All the Pros agree, to lower your scores and increase your golf IQ, you need to Golf Smarter!”
* “Ben Hogan’s Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf” (1957) &
“Harvey Penick's Little Red Book: Lessons And Teachings From A Lifetime In Golf” (1992)

There’s No Pressure In Golf. It’s All Perception | Spring Into The Golf Season with Tony Manzoni #9of9
This is our final entry into our Spring Into Golf Season series featuring conversations with the late Tony Manzoni, probably the most impactful teacher, based on listener feedback, that we’ve ever featured in the 16 years of doing game improvement interviews on the Golf Smarter podcast. Tony’s ability to make his students great ball strikers wasn’t his only focus. In this episode we also discuss the mental and emotional aspects of the game that can negatively impact scoring. After a long battle, Tony finally succumbed to cancer and passed away in 2018. I am so honored to have the ability to share my many conversations over 9 years to keep his warmth, humor, stories, teaching methods, and legacy alive. Tony’s book “The Lost Fundamental: One Simple Move. Better Golf Forever.” is available once again in either paperback or kindle formats. Find it at The Lost Fundamental video is also available online! If you’re interested, please send your request to host Fred Greene at golfsmarterpodcast@gmail.com. After Tony passed in 2018, we created a Tony Manzoni Memorial Golf Smarter Fund to benefit the First Tee of Coachella Valley, home to Tony’s lesson center and the Men’s Golf Team he coached for decades at College of the Desert in Southern California. Your tax deductible contributions are greatly appreciated. Find out more about the fund and everything we have gathered about Tony at .

Disparity Between Men and Women’s Golf is Not Ability, It’s Distance! | Spring Into The Golf Season with Tony Manzoni #8of9
Even though Tony Manzoni had tremendous success coaching the Men’s golf program at College of the Desert, he didn’t focus on Men’s golf only. Tony had tremendous respect for the women’s game and believed that amateur golfers at all skill levels could learn a lot from watching the LPGA Tour. He also spent a lot of time working with children who were exceptional golfers and had a future in the professional game.  At one point in this episode, he mentions sharing videos of their swings. Unfortunately, I can’t find or share them. But it’s that work with young people that was behind our motivation to create a tax deductible fund at the First Tee of Coachella Valley, home of College of the Desert, in his memory.  Tony’s book “The Lost Fundamental: One Simple Move. Better Golf Forever.” is available once again in either paperback or kindle formats. Find it at The Lost Fundamental video is also available online!
