My Pathway To Finding Joy In Golf Again with Author Michael Bowker | #902


902: A Golf Smarter listener was shocked to find out that one of his regular playing partners was the actual author of a book we’ve talked a lot about on this podcast, “Winning The Battle Within – The Best Shot Is the One You Trust” by Dr. Glen Albaugh (RIP). Michael claims to actually have come up with the subtitle about “Trust”. He’s also a very good golfer / coach with some fabulous stories and tips. Beyond those credits, he is also an award-winning investigative journalist and the author of more than twenty books, and the publisher at Sixty Degrees Publishing <> including his latest, “Michael Bowker’s No Ordinary Days”.
