Most Golfers Make Centered Contact On a Random Basis


914: Jamie Zimron of joins us for the first time in a couple years to talk about how important center contact on every one of your golf clubs will improve each ball strike, from driver to putter. So instead of focusing on various swing mechanics, or tinkering with position of body parts during your swing, just focus on making center contact and you’ll be surprised. We’re so proud to congratulate Jamie for receiving the PGA SF Pride Golf Tournament “Excellence in Golf” award this week. That leads to a discussion on how the PGA and LPGA are so far ahead of other sports to openly embrace members of the LGBTQ+ community. Jamie has written a series of articles on Hetero/Sexism in Sports. Here are the titles and links to each piece.
