Tony Jacklin: World Golf Hall of Famer on his New Thriller Novel “Bad Lies”


Tony Jacklin was the most successful British player of his generation, winning two Majors, and four time European Team Ryder Cup Captain. But now in his 70s he’s trying something new. Along with Shelby Yastrow, Tony has co-authored “Bad Lies: A Story of Libel, Slander, & Professional Golf”. We talk to Tony about his career and this really compelling book. Shelby, a retired attorney joins us to complete the conversation.  The book is being released on the same day as this podcast, so get your copy now!

This week on the Golf Smarter Academy, Ron from Northern Virginia calls in with a question for Tony about club fitting, and another for host Fred Greene about Lincoln Park Golf Course in San Francisco. If you have a question for Fred, Tony, or any other past Golf Smarter guests, let us help with your game or equipment! Submit your question by calling toll free 415-761-1498. Even if you want to ask another golf instructor who’s been on Golf Smarter before, we’re here to help! Listeners who get answers receive a free copy of Tony Manzoni’s DVD “The Lost Fundamental”, a diploma from the Golf Smarter Academy, and the all new Golf Smarter ball marker!  Get more at
