A Manuel de la Torre Student Proudly Continues His Teaching Legacy | #894


894: Trish Beucher of 815TeeTime.com studied the golf swing from legendary teacher Manuel de la Torre and has made it her life mission to keep the swing as simple as possible so that anyone can play better golf. Trish believes that the golf swing doesn’t need to be complicated, and supports her theories by helping golfers who have physical challenges, whether from birth or by accident. In addition to private lessons, she spends a lot of her time instructing athletes from the Special Olympics, PGA Hope, and Wounded Warriors.

Northwood Golf Course in Monte Rio, CA, a beautiful and challenging 9 hole course designed in 1928 by Alister MacKenzie, is tucked away in a redwood forest.

This week on Golf Smarter Mulligans is part 2 of a new six part series with Dr. Glen Albaugh, author of “Wining The Battle Within”. Glen passed away in Feb 2023 at the age of 91, and we want to honor his memory by replaying each episode he was featured in on Golf Smarter. Glen’s teachings are a great compliment after our Tony Manzoni series because now that we’ve worked so hard on learning the single pivot swing, it’s time to focus on fine tuning our mental game. In this episode, from November 2011, we focus on how your best swing is the one you trust. Learn more in the show notes or our blog post at GolfSmarter.com for these episodes.
