This week we have a pioneer in the world of golf, John Ashworth, of LINKSOUL. Our mission here at 18Strong is to not only bring you information on exercises, game improvements, and fitness, but also cool people and cool things going on in the things of golf and we have definitely tapped into that this week in our interview with.
The title of this episode, “Should You Lower Your Expectations,” might sound a little negative at first.

Michael Breed is one of the most notable personalities in golf. He previously hosted the number one golf instruction show on television, The Golf Fix. which aired on the Golf Channel for many years.

Today I am especially excited to have on our special guest, SMU Golfer and one of the top amateur golfers in the game, Ben Wong.

Rob Collins is the course designer, architect, and ultimately, the inspiration behind Sweetens Cove. If you haven’t heard of Sweetens Cove yet, you’re about to be introduced to the story of an incredible little 9-hole course near Chattanooga Tennessee (South Pittsburgh) that has taken the world of golf by storm.

Jayne Storey is one of the most fascinating coaches I’ve come across in the game of golf. She is a pioneer of an emerging genre, which seeks to unite Eastern spiritual practice with high performance in pressure situations.
