Co-owner of Pete's Golf Shop and I talked with Golf Digest Senior Editor, Mike Stachura. The topics covered this week were future trends in the golf industry, golf's dirty word--bifurcation and the Golf Digest Hot List. Enjoy and thank you for the support.
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.

Episode three brings us a continued discussion with Kirk Oguri PGA about the importance of club fitting. While St. John's head coach, Frank Darby had some great insights into the college recruiting process.
Episode two brings you Golfweek Amateur Tour Metro NY, Tom Steinmann and co-owner of South Shore Golf, Rich Hoffer. In terms of amateur golf, there is the professional amateur and the weekend warrior. The Golfweek Amateur Tour gives us the best of both worlds.
Rich Hoffer just finished his annual Mega Demo Day and was great in telling us what we should be looking for when we attend a demo day to make a new purchase to upgrade out games.
My first guest of the year was co-owner of Pete’s Golf, Woody Lashen. Woody is one of the best in the fitting business and Pete’s Golf is a Golf Digest top 100 clubfitter. If you're interested in the equipment side of the game, then this is a must listen.
