Rob's energy and excitement for the game made this interview an instant classic! Rob shares his method for helping his students perform equally well on course as compared to the range. We also talk about one of his many star students that he worked with as a junior golfer all the way to his first win on a mini tour.
Tony Decker is the 2014 Maine chapter PGA Teacher of the Year. Aside from being named the Teacher of the Year in Maine, Tony has also received awards for his part in growning the game of golf.
In this interview Tony reveals that his favorite practice drill is actually practicing his pre-shot routine. This is one of my favorite answers to this question so far because it is one of the basic fundamentals that can help you take huge leaps in your on course performance.
Today's guest is fellow Wisconsinite and Director of Instruction/Founder of www.FixYourGame.com, Brant Kasbohm.

Also, subscribe to our newsletter below (or follow the link) and you'll get the special two for the price of one introductory lesson offer that I've set up with Brant. Come on, how are you going to beat two lessons for $20???
Jason Sutton was the 2013 Carolinas section Teacher of the Year and a five time nominee for the Golf Magazine top 100 list. He shares how his experiences in the Dana Rader Golf School helped him develop into one of the elite coaches in the country. Jason also reveals his "secret sauce" for fixing the classic over the top move (COUGH -why.you.slice-COUGH COUGH).
My big takeaway from this interview actually didn't come from anything golf related, but rather how Jason was able to pinpoint his biggest weakness (public speaking) and turn it into a strength by repeatedly putting himself into those situation. It's just further proof that any obstacle can be overcome.
Tyrus York is the 2014 Kentucky section PGA Teacher of the Year and co-owner of High Performance Golf Academy in Lexington Kentucky. Besides being the teacher of the year in Kentucky, Tyrus has a wealth of experience playing tournament golf first hand. He shares with us some of the most frequently overlooked parts of a solid golf game (nutrition and hydration to name a few!).
My favorite thing from this interview is learning that someone else used to make the same mistakes as I did as a kid!!! Oh, and I learned a new term too: milking the club... You'll have to listen to figure it out ;)
Todd Elliott is the head golf pro at Hideaway Beach Club in Marco Island Florida and he shares his story about falling in love with golf when a friend dragged him out to the course one day.
