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.
