943: Matt Ginella, TV personality from The Golf Channel and The FirePit Collective, discusses his obsession with L.A.B. Golf and his journey to uncover the story behind the company. Matt's interest in L.A.B. Golf was sparked when he witnessed Lucas Glover's success with the putter. He explains how his interviews with Sam and Bill Presse, the inventor of The Revealer, revealed the fascinating history of L.A.B. Golf. Matt also discusses the influence of Vaughn Taylor, Kelly Slater, and Adam Scott in the L.A.B. Golf story. The podcast series is described as an audio book, with each episode weaving together multiple voices to create a compelling narrative arc. This conversation covers a range of topics, including the importance of reporting and authenticity in broadcasting, Kelly Slater's influence on golf, the success of L.A.B. Golf and the importance of tour recognition, the marketing of golf putters and the concept of “letting go of control to gain control”, the transformation of Lucas Glover and the power of never giving up. Fred and Matt also get some quick hits on golf courses in Northern Ireland that will be played on the Golf Smarter Royal Adventure in July. TakeawaysMatt Ginella's obsession with L.A.B.

Short Game Tricks & Tips You Can Use (And Myths to Avoid) with Jim Waldron

Short Game Tricks & Tips You Can Use (And Myths to Avoid) with Jim Waldron
941.  Summary: In this conversation, Jim Waldron and Fred Greene discuss various aspects of the short game in golf and dispel some common myths. They emphasize the need for solid contact and distance control in the short game, the role of pivot in generating power, the issue of scooping and Jim provides tips for controlling spin in different conditions. They cover topics such as distance wedges, taking spin off shots, the kinematic sequence, finesse swings, distance control, trajectory control, spin control, rhythm and tempo, and scoring in the short game. Jim and Fred also discuss various aspects of putting and chipping in golf. There are many misconceptions about putting, including the illusion created by watching professional golfers on TV.  The conversation then shifts to using an iron as a putter and the technique of the putt chip shot. They explore the resurgence of Scottish chipping and its technique, as well as when to use this shot. Finally, they discuss club selection and the carry-roll ratio in classical chipping on medium-sized greens.Takeaways The short game is an under-taught and poorly taught aspect of golf.Solid contact and distance control are crucial in the short game.Pivot plays a significant role in generating power and controlling spin in the short game.Scooping is a common issue in the short game that needs to be addressed.Controlling spin is essential in different conditions and shot types. Distance wedges are shots from about 65 to 120 yards that require medium spin and a lower trajectory.Tour pros try to take spin off distance wedges to have better control over the carry distance.The kinematic sequence is the transfer of energy from one body part to the next during the downswing, and it is different for power swings and distance wedges.In the short game, a finesse swing with less spin and a softer version of the full swing is preferred.Distance control in the short game is achieved through consistent length of backswing and a constant rhythm and tempo.Scoring in the short game requires chipping and pitching the ball close to the hole to increase the chances of one-putting.Watching professional golfers on TV can create misconceptions about putting.Lie angle balance and lab putters can improve putting performance.Using an iron as a putter can be effective for certain shots.The putt chip shot is a specialized short game shot that can be useful around the green.Scottish chipping is making a comeback in golf.Classical chipping is a foundational technique for the short game on medium-sized greens.***Summary was AI generated from riverside.fm, our recording platform.This is an invitation for you to join host Fred Greene and other Golf Smarter listeners for a once in a lifetime Golf Smarter Royal Adventure to Northern Ireland!
