The Truth About Golf

Join host Cordie Walker for this audio documentary style podcast diving into all things golf.

Instead of looking at common beliefs or what worked for one person 20 years ago we’re looking at the research and trying to explain complicated issues in a very understandable and practical manner. 


Go behind the scenes of golf instruction at the highest level with Tony Ruggiero as he talks with players, fellow instructors, and members of his team.
