Stop Topping The Ball….FOREVER! with Tony Manzoni (RIP)


GSfMO #328 April 10, 2012 Tony Manzoni, author of The Lost Fundamental, and longtime favorite of the GOLF SMARTER audience returns to discuss how weight shift and position can be the root of topping the ball. It’s also the key to increased distance. Tony’s book “The Lost Fundamental: One Simple Move, Better Golf Forever”, is available on Amazon in paperback or Kindle format. This is the first time this episode has been shared publicly as it was originally a Members Only episode.
