Pt2- Taking Your Game to a New Level – One Club at a Time with Tony Manzoni (RIP)


595 June 6, 2017: Beyond being a great golfer and teacher, Tony Manzoni had so much more to his life than the game. In this conversation we get into an interesting discussion of what it’s like to live in the shadow of a high profile father, then pursuing a career choice in the same field. Examples discussed include Steph Curry and Frank Sinatra Jr. We then continue to discuss taking your game to the next level one club at a time. The focus of the conversation is how many situations require wedges. 

Tony’s book, “The Lost Fundamental: One Simple Move, Better Golf Forever” is available on paperback or digitally for Kindle on Amazon. The video he created of the same name is only available on a private YouTube channel. Please write to [email protected] to gain access.
