One of the best NPG episodes;   I actually listened to the entire show; which is something I haven’t done in a long time.   Lou provides some great insights into the game and is also a great follow on Twitter.

I will have to check this out. I have never listened to a NPG podcast since I already am at my limit with No Laying Up and Shotgun Start. Will give this one a whirl.

I listened to it and loved it. Lou was great. I think I listened to the same part at 31:00, at least 3 or 4 times to make sure I heard it right, where he talks about the distance people should be playing. When he said "5 iron carry * 33" I was nodding my head FURIOUSLY. For me, that is (180 * 33 = 5,940 yds) which is pretty close to what I play. I VERY OFTEN play with people who probably carry a 5 iron 160 yds and play from 6,400. Seems like that would not be very much fun. This is a soapbox rant for me, most everyone I play with (not necessarily Mygolfspy people) plays courses WAY too long. I cannot stress that enough.

I never got a chance to finish it with some other things interrupting me, but I loved his philosophy on several things that he went over in the early stages. Great guest!
