Tiger Woods successfully defended his British Open title and Geoff Ogilvy grabbed the U.S. Open. What's next? Will Phil Mickelson aptly safeguard his PGA Championship or will there be traces of gambling Phil, who is now holding the title of "worst collapse in sports history"?

This week we discuss the course management strategies which Tiger Woods used to claim the coveted claret jug.

Barry and I pull a letter from a fellow New Yorker out of our email bag. His complaint? Googling online under "best clubs" and "beginners" has not found our listener any wisdom, "just a bunch of marketing".

Are Nike golf clubs best for beginners? Mizuno? Ping? We help take the confusion out of club selection.

Finally, Shelby Futch, Golf Digest teaching professional, shows us how to G.A.S.P. your way to better play.
