GSfMO#385 The story of a golferâ€™s dream: caddying on the fabled Old Course in St. Andrews. â€śAn American Caddie in St. Andrews – Growing Up, Girls, and Looping on the Old Courseâ€ť is the focus of a very entertaining Members Only episode with young author Oliver Horovitz. Being forced to take a gap year after getting accepted to Harvard, Oliver, a driven young man, chose to spend the next school year at University of St. Andrews in Scotland. He left home for the UK, took a full course load, joined the golf team, and had way too much fun to go home for the summer. This is the story of his eye opening summers waking up at 4:30a most mornings to line up at the caddie shack for the honor of escorting golfers of all shapes, sizes and skill levels at the renowned Home of Golf.

GSfMO#374 In this (nearly) hour long Members Only conversation, we discussÂ Drive Like The ProsÂ a new book that introduces TaylorMadeâ€™s MAT-T System. MAT-T (pronounced â€śmatâ€ť) is a 3D motion capture system that analyzes your swing and provides detailed statistics about every nuance of your swing. Unlike 2D video instruction systems that have the ability to compare your swing to different Tour Pros, uses sensors to create a 3D personalized avatar that allows you to see your swing from every angle.Â TaylorMade analyzed the swing of 118 of their sponsored Tour Pros and averaged the numbers derived by MAT-T. Once compiled, the statistics were averaged to generate an avatar that has all the best elements of the top players. Then their engineers created an avatar based on the average swing statistics of 5000 amateurs. Author Michael Neff is a PGA Certified Instructor and is also TaylorMadeâ€™s primary contractor who installs MAT-T systems all over the world.
The book, is now available in hardback and as a Kindle digital download in our book section of the Golfers’Mart.

GSfMO #372 In this Members Only episode, author and professional drummerÂ Cary ValentineÂ has suffered through what many golfers regularly experience — â€śI SUCK!â€ť As we discuss his book, â€śIn Love Foreverâ€ť he translates his theories on how to improve your game and attitude by putting the breaks on the negative train. Donâ€™t bite into the negativity, refocus and reframe how you approach before you get yourself into a deep, dark hole. He also references the golf book “Quantum Golf: The Path To Golf Mastery” (now available in our Golfers’Mart) that inspired him to go deeper into beating negative thinking. Cary also shares how he got to discuss the inner game with PGA Tour Pro Stuart Cink and others at the Sony Open in Hawaii.
