Doug Brown on Your Golf Clubs .::. Episode 16

On the season finale we welcome Doug Brown into the FingerLakes1.com Studio to talk about what America needs to do to win back the Ryder Cup after getting destroyed by the Euros at Gleneagles this weekend. Then, we discuss the importance of changing your grips and show you how to change your own grips at home. What is the best way to go about buying a new set of golf clubs. We round out our Finger Lakes Dream 18 with holes 16, 17 and 18 before asking if the Zen golf approach is all it is cracked up to be.

We’ll return in April of 2015 for another season. Be sure to subscribe at the links at the top of this page so you’ll be sure to find us when we return. Have a great winter and PLAY FALL GOLF!

Steve Hyde on Turfgrass Agronomy .::. Episode 14

This week we discuss a side to the game that many golfers don’t think about while playing their round… turfgrass agronomy and golf course maintenance. Steve Hyde of Agrium Advanced Technologies is in-studio to pull the curtain back on what goes into maintaining a golf course in the northeast and the single most important element of every golf course in the world… turfgrass! Also, we recap the Tour Championship and Billy Horschel’s Fed Ex Cup title, show you an attractive new putter grip, and give you hole #14 of our Finger Lakes Dream 18.
