I first caught up with Matt Ginella for a quick Q&A when he was the Senior Travel Editor at Golf Digest and I’ve made it a point to have him on the show at least once a year ever since. Matt is the consummate professional– thoughtful, honest and knows his business. Since then Ginella moved on to Golf Channelwhere he’s golfchannel.com’s travel insider. Matt also brings much to the table as a regular on Golf Channel’s Morning Driveas well, and still travels and plays more golf than anyone I know as illustrated in his Morning Drive feature “Runways to Fairways.”
This week, co-owner of Pete’s Golf Shop, Woody Lashen and Golf Digest Senior Equipment Editor, Mike Stachura will be featured on the On Par radio show. Pete’s Golf Shop is a Golf Digest Top-100 Clubfitter and the only golf shop on Long Island to receive such a distinction.
Mike Stachura and the equipment team at Golf Digest has worked hard to become the premium source for rating golf products. Golf Digest’s annual Hot List issue has become the must read edition for the equipment enthusiast. This week, Mike was kind enough to join to discuss some “anchored putter” alternatives, glove fitting and how different equipment companies are dealing with issue of product cycles.
