This is our final entry into our Spring Into Golf Season series featuring conversations with the late Tony Manzoni, probably the most impactful teacher, based on listener feedback, that we’ve ever featured in the 16 years of doing game improvement interviews on the Golf Smarter podcast. Tony’s ability to make his students great ball strikers wasn’t his only focus. In this episode we also discuss the mental and emotional aspects of the game that can negatively impact scoring. After a long battle, Tony finally succumbed to cancer and passed away in 2018. I am so honored to have the ability to share my many conversations over 9 years to keep his warmth, humor, stories, teaching methods, and legacy alive.
Tony’s book “The Lost Fundamental: One Simple Move. Better Golf Forever.” is available once again in either paperback or kindle formats. Find it here.
The Lost Fundamental video is also available online! If you’re interested, please send your request to host Fred Greene at [email protected]. After Tony passed in 2018, we created a Tony Manzoni Memorial Golf Smarter Fund to benefit the First Tee of Coachella Valley, home to Tony’s lesson center and the Men’s Golf Team he coached for decades at College of the Desert in Southern California. Your tax deductible contributions are greatly appreciated. Find out more about the fund and everything we have gathered about Tony here.
