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.

Thank you for listening to this episode of Golf Strategy School.  Before we get into all the details of the upcoming interviews I wanted to give you all some information about me and my plans for the podcast.

 

I want this to be a go to resource for golfers to learn about some of the things that take years of experience to come across.  I've been playing for 20 years and have found a lot of ways to play better golf, but it's taken thousands of rounds to learn these things.  I want to bring you great actionable information in the form of weekly interviews with some of the best golf instructors in the world.  Some of our upcoming guests include Golf Magazine Top 100 instructor Tom Stickney, peak performance coach Tim Kremer, and Kentucy PGA teacher of the year Tyrus York just to name a few.

 

I will be publishing several interviews this week so you can get a feel for how they go and what to expect.  If you have any questions that you would like to hear asked, please feel free to leave a comment on that episodes page at golfstrategyschool.com
