Erik J. Barzeski Interviewed on the Golf Guru Show Podcast


Recommended Posts

Generally, podcast episodes tend to be shorter these days, but this is a beefy 2+ hours, so lots of meat to chew on. Our very own @iacas in a podcast interview, interviewer is Jason Sutton.

I haven't finished, only halfway through, but a lot has happened in golf instruction I dunno, since 2010, and this is a great pov from one instructor's perspective on all that has evolved (and there was a lot - instruction trends, technology, etc..) with some funny stories and you might pick up something that might help your game. I'll post more after I finish. Sutton is a good interviewer, asks good questions and more importantly, good follow-ups.

I was able to listen to it this earlier today and enjoyed it greatly. I learned a couple things I didn't know and got some reminders on things I did but needed to hear again.

I'm afraid to listen. 😄 When I finally do I'll probably make a post with some more details (with timestamps) that give a bit more detail and/or explain anything that may seem a bit off.

I may also keep track of how many times I put my foot in my mouth. 😉 I'd set the over-under at 8.5. Ha ha.

A long time ago, a friend told me "I would be lucky IF you learned something NEW every single day"
I feel many players need to "TRUST" their swing more and depend on their abilities to execute every shot.

What’s this got to do with the podcast? It was long enough I don't remember everything we discussed.

Did you listen to it?

Yes, my comment was meant to be a compliment to the title "Stay Inquisitive and Keep Learning"

The podcast was very good, I like the how you and Jason touch base on many topics which golfers are seldom aware of with what the teaching pro's considers when working with students.

I added my opinion with trusting the swing, something that is seldon a thought.

What bit was that? 🙂

It starts around 01:44:00.

Make exaggerated backswing, look around, make sure it's the backswing you wanted to make. Then make same backswing, stay looking at ball. Then make backswing, pause at top, if it doesn't feel right, reset.

The stuff about the importance of the backswing resonated with me as well.

Ah, yes. My three-step backswing work process. Super exaggerated. Exaggerated while looking at the ball. Same feels with a pause so you can focus on those, hit the ball as a reward.

Thanks.

I don't do podcasts. But I listened to this and enjoyed it. It nice to learn more about Erik's background and teaching philosophy.  I wish there was someone like that around here.

Finished the podcast today.   I really enjoyed hearing some of the background and stories of the progression of your teaching.  It was a good reminder about par 5’s just need one good shot.  It’s ok to aim pretty far right if ob left.  Just keep it in the ropes. All stuff I’ve heard for the most part but I appreciated the explanation and reminder.  
 

and I didn’t think you put your foot in your mouth much, sounded good.

    • It's not that. It's very disjointed. Left hand a little strong, right hand weak.
    • I wish she would have mentioned if all those patients that showed up at her clinic were vaccinated or unvaccinated, or a combination of both.  Otherwise, reassuring.
    • Recorded some DTL swings after my round today. Need to figure out how to upload videos from the Live View Pro app on my tablet to youtube. I think the Live View Pro camera works great as a digital mirror, but video quality is pretty low on recorded swings, especially on downswing. I'll try to find the highest quality video and post it here. Will get FO view later this week, and may get DTL again using my iPhone.
