This week we continue with a LIVE via Facebook interview for the podcast talking with our close buddy, and professional golfer, Hayden Buckley.
He joined us for a chat about his current golf standings pre-lockdown, what he’s doing to stay sharp on his game, takeaways from making the cut in 2 out of 2 PGA Tour events and how he plans to use that knowledge moving forward to break through to his dreams of permanently residing on the PGA Tour.
We discuss what he thinks the future of golf tournaments will look like post lockdown (COVID-19) and Hayden also answers some questions from the 18Strong community including advice for younger players, which he thinks is better for making cuts: distance or short game, how he blocks out the noise while playing, and the biggest transitions when turning pro.
Highlights from this Episode
- Hayden recounts what his game-plan and status was before the lockdown started, and the silver lining in the potential new tournament guidelines that could help him get into tournaments.

He also talks about a couple takeaways from making the cut on two tournaments and how he is shaping himself and what he is working on moving into the season re-opening.
- Hayden answers some questions from the 18Strong community like the biggest transition from turning pro, advice for younger players, what getting sponsorships looked like transitioning into the pro ranks, which is better for making cuts: distance or short game, who his favorite pro player to watch as a kid, and how he blocks out the noise and compartmentalize his nerves.
