Golf is a game of numbers and other brain-twisting things. Come geek out with Will Haskett, veteran golf broadcaster, as he explores the precision side of the game. Analytics, strokes gained, fantasy, rankings, technology, business, psychology and more, let your inner golf nerd out with some of the best minds and thinkers of the game!
Golf has given us a lot to talk about in 2019, and nobody has seemingly crunched as much information as Lou Stagner. A year removed from his introduction to our audience, he returns to the podcast as one of the most sought after data analysts in golf. We talk flagsticks, putting, Rory vs. Brooks, Tiger, professional vs. amateur expectations, flaws in the system and so much more. This is a BIG conversation.
Episode 62 - Kevin Moore of Squares to Circles
There is more conversation than ever in golf and on the PGA Tour about the various tools used for success. Stat consultants and mental coaches are part of the "teams" players employ to chase wins. On the heels of Brendon Todd's magical run, how does data intersect with the mental game? That's what fascinates Kevin Moore, a college math professor and former college golfer. He advises amateur players, college teams and others with his own strategic analysis. We talk about that, Rory, what works and what's to come.
Episode 61 - Ward Jarvis, Performance Coach
Golf is nuanced. We know that. Talent, fitness, data and repetition are all tools needed by the world's best golfers, on the PGA Tour and beyond. Even more important, to some, is the space between the ears; the mental game. Ward Jarvis is a performance coach who was instrumental in Brendon Todd overcoming the "yips" and making it back on Tour. We talk approach, positive thinking, Tiger Woods, Brooks Koepka and the growing business of mental coaches in golf.
