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.
We also learn some really insightful information about how standard putters are rarely right for the average person and how placing an aiming stick down range might be the missing key to making your practice session top notch.

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
