640: This week we go up to the coast to play Ocean Dunes Golf Links in Florence, OR. Our guest is Bob Rannow, PGA, a native of Oregon who has been teaching and working in his home state since he was 14. Bob gives us an overview of Oregon coastal courses and get a TeeTour of Ocean Dunes Golf Links. The second half of our conversation covers his tournament history and tips and insights to play better at links style courses. If you’d like to see photos of Ocean Dunes, there’s a video from the first part of our conversation on our GolfSmarterTV channel.
This week on the Golf Smarter Academy, Fred answers a question about trying the new High Heat 257+ clubs from KnuthGolf.com (episode #637). Once Fred receives his review clubs from Knuth Golf, he’s going to take them to his favorite club fitter, Nick Manzano (episode #405), and put them up against his Callaway XHot Driver, 4 wood, and Ping Hybrids on the trackman computer system to see if these clubs do go farther and straighter than clubs that were fit specifically for Fred’s game. Fred and Nick did a video of a fitting that is one of the most popular videos at GolfSmarterTV
