Golf for Beginners Podcast: We're joining Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson in a well-deserved break

Golf for Beginners logo


Both Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have opted out of the Tour Championship. Tiger says that he needs to recharge his batteries and Phil is just trying to forget his U.S. Open "flop".

Now that Barry and I have a year's worth of Golf for Beginners podcasts in the hopper, we have also decided to take a short respite. This occurence doesn't necessarily mean that we aren't going to provide our listeners with quality golf tips and our usual banter.

We have compiled a few of our "vintage" podcasts, filled with Tiger tips, Michelle Wie frenzy and ample instruction to keep you satisfied during our break.

For example, in June we discussed how Phil Mickelson's course management mistakes can help you play smarter. Click here to listen.

And, how can we forget Michelle Wie's attempt to qualify for the U.S. Open at Winged Foot and how LPGA golfers have had to vie for attention amidst the rising young teenager's presence. Click here to listen.

Finally, a real "oldie" from the Golf for Beginners archives. A look back at our first podcast! Watch us grow from real beginners to old hats! Click here to listen.

Enjoy!

You would think that Tiger Woods already has every shot in his bag but he, too, is always learning. This week's golf tip focuses on all-important chip shot.

At the end of a round of golf there can only be one winner, whether it be a professional or amateur tournament. Even on the publinks, when betting a two-dollar Nassau with your friends, it really hurts when you are the person handing out the dough. Do you follow basic golf etiquette?

How good of a loser are you?

Finally, we reveal an all-important occasion for Golf for Beginners.

Strengthen your focus and concentration with this game-within-a-game tactic! Pia Nilsson (Annika Sorenstam's mental coach) and Lynn Marriott's (Golf Digest Top-50 instructor) golf tips will keep you "in the moment"! Both are co-founders of "Vision 54", a tutelage that all golfers are capable of shooting a birdie on every hole!

Phil Mickelson has a tendency to get into trouble (remember his U.S. Open collapse?) He also has many shots in his bag to get him back onto the fairway. We discuss the punch-out with help from Golf Digest teaching professional Rick Smith who, I believe, has seen Mickelson practice this maneuver many times! ;D

Finally we give you Bill Clinton's view on golf in our podcast and a video of him swinging the golf club. Mulligan anyone?

And, we couldn't help ourselves when we heard Phyllis Diller's wisecrack about her golf experience, so here it is!

I found myself searching for a reason why my self-assurance increased this past week after crushing opponents during a round of golf. The "dean of mental coaching", Dr. Bob Rotella, seemed to offer up the closest ideas as to my improved cerebral performance.

After his 200th performance at this week's WGC-American Express Championship, we discuss what would make Tiger Woods retire from golf as well as a contrasting quote from Vijay Singh.

"The Rules of Golf plainly spoken" helps the golfer whose ball finds an unplayable lie.
