Would you like to play golf on national T.V.?

5 posts in this topic

My name is James Leeth and I currently own a small golf course in Chattanooga, TN.  I am also the host of Golf Soup a 30 minute golf program that airs here locally on the Fox network.  Golf Soup has just been picked up to go national and we are very excited about this incredible opportunity!  the format of Golf Soup in the past has featured myself playing and promoting 9 holes of a different local or regional course for my viewers and we were quite successful with that format, however with the national broadcast we will be changing the format to give more of a national appeal to the viewing audience.  So I will be playing the 9 holes each week with a celebrity or a guest and we will be playing for money that will go to the celebrity or guest's charity while we learn more about the guest and their lives.  I have been blessed in my life to meet some well known people and have great contacts to many others and I know that we will turn out some great shows with these guests.  But with a golden opportunity like this I don't want every guest to be someone whose golden ticket has already been punched.  Everyone has a story to tell or knows someone that they would like to help or a cause that they want to champion.  I would like to have guests from all walks of life not just the red carpet walk of life.  But most importantly we want people who are passionate about helping others and giving back as we play for charity each week.  Our guest line up so far includes a county music star, a former PGA and Sr PGA star, a comedian, several presidents of charities,  a couple of actors and so on.  What I am specifically and actively looking for at this point is a Wounded Warrior with a love of the game of golf to join me in raising money for the Wounded Warrior project or any charity of his or her choice.  But that is not the only person I am looking for, as I said earlier everyone has a story to tell.  Maybe you would like to get your story out to 30 million people.  Maybe like me you have struggled and toiled your whole life with your business or product and have been waiting on a break to get your story out to the masses.  I now have the platform that can help people in many different ways and that is exactly our mission statement.  To help, promote, and change as many lives as possible.  If you think you would be a good fit for our show, let's talk.  Send me a private message here on this site.  Thanks for taking the time to read and good luck to all out there.

Play on national televised television . I would take the opportunity and run with it . But there is a catch , a wager . I see not enough being done to help our American Veterans and there family's who might be left behind as a result of a serviceman's death . I would like to do something about it . I know there are many other Vets that feel the same .

    • Nice pics! I can tell you're good at what you do.  From the pics, they remind me of Ping Ansers

    • Putting practice is very different from one player (and especially skill level to the next).   here are my impressions.   it is true that 30-50% of all shots are from the green.  but, you can't really look at it that way, because even on a good putting day, half of those are inevitable.  If you two putt every single green in regulation, I doubt you're gonna be too down on yourself.  so really, the strokes you are adding or subtracting from your card are the number of 3-putts and 1-putts.   For your average golfer, there are really just two things you need to accomplish to putt well.   Making every putt under 6 feet.  and putting every putt outside that 6-foot circle to within the circle.   1) making every putt within 6 feet this is really just about repetition.  and it really doesn't matter where you are getting your reps.  I have an 8 ft putting mat in my living room.  If I spend an hour just hitting balls on this over, and over, and, over, I notice is great deal of improvement in making my 5 footers.  I know it sounds simple, but just learning how to repeatedly hit the ball straight and having the confidence standing over the ball to hit it straight makes a huge difference.   note: I assume as you get better and better at golf (and putting), this method of practice will have less and less of a positive impact.  This really only helps you become confident in your putting stroke, once you've got that down, you've got bigger fish to fry.   2) hitting everything outside that 6 foot circle to within 6 feet.   This one is a bit trickier.  I think the best practice for this one is to get to a practice green and putt from many different distances.  and changing it up very frequently (as opposed to putting many balls from one distance and then moving).  This one is all about feel.  and feel only comes with practice.     If you can get really good at these two simple skills, you can certainly become a passable putter.   Now the next step is raising your conversion rate on 10-15 foot putts.   I think this step takes a lot more work and a much better understanding of how to read a green as well as being a lot more precise with your pace.   If I ever figure this stuff out, I'll do my best to share.               
    • 8/31/16: Slower backswings with a slightly faster through swing. Swinging at perhaps 60-65% of my "normal speed" I honestly don't lose much distance with it. So I think I might use this for a while. "Ledge" gave me this tip on Sunday. (After my match). He told me, I would be more consistent with it, so I'm giving it a shot. As August has 31 days, I've completed the "5 Minutes Daily" challenge for August. @iacas, how do I make text red in mobile?
