Amateurgolf.com has been delivering quality coverage of amateur golf for more than 20 years. Our forte over two decades has been providing you with schedules, news, rankings, and results from amateur events all over the world.

Now, we’re bringing you a new way to learn about this wonderful sport. Our podcast will bring you deeper into the world of amateur golf. We’ll interview people who are involved with the game in different ways: players, caddies, trainers, sports psychologists, architects.

Amateur golf is rich with history, characters, and drama. We believe the best stories haven’t even been told yet, and our goal is to find them and share them with you.

We would appreciate your help to spread the word about the podcast. First, you can “subscribe” or “follow” our podcast on whatever podcast app you use. That way you’ll know when a fresh podcast is ready for you. If you can rate and review our podcast, that would be going the extra mile and it would really help, too.

Episode 1: Ludvig Aberg

Ludvig Aberg was named AmateurGolf.com’s 2021 player of the year. The Texas Tech junior has a long list of accolades. He was a 2021 PING All-American, a GCAA All-American scholar, All-Big 12 First Team, and a Haskins Award finalist.

During our chat, Ludvig talks about growing up and learning the game in Sweden, the choice to attend college in the United States (and Texas Tech in particular), his interrupted freshman year due to CoVID, and more. Ludvig has won amateur events like the Jones Cup in February 2021, but he has also won 2 pro events and competed in the RSM Classic on the PGA TOUR.

Episode 2: Dr. Bob Winters
Dr. Bob Winters has an illustrious resume. He has been involved in golf at every level as a player, coach, and sports psychologist. He has made a huge impact on players of every age.

For the last 17 years, he has been the Resident Sports Psychologist for Leadbetter Golf Academy World Teaching Headquarters at Champions Gate, Florida, working with some of the best golfers in the world. Dr. Bob joins me to talk about his experience competing as a golfer and the epiphany he had when he realized he wanted to get into the mental side of the game and help make other players better.

Have a pen and paper nearby, as Dr. Bob is full of fabulous takeaways that you can help not just your golf game, but also your outlook on life in general.

Episode 3: Peter O'Keeffe
Peter O’Keeffe is an amateur golfer from Ireland. In 2021 he became the first player in 26 years to win the Irish Amateur Close and Irish Amateur Open championships in the same year. The last player to do that was a young Padraig Harrington.

O’Keeffe’s experience in the game is wide ranging. He played his college golf in Louisiana. After graduating he returned to Europe and battled on the Challenge Tour before returning to the amateur ranks. O’Keeffe’s outlook on the game has shifted over the years, and he drops nuggets of wisdom throughout our discussion both on the mental and physical side of the game. Since returning to amateur golf, O’Keeffe has built an online fitness presence, helping golfers of all ages and abilities play their best golf while getting stronger for a healthy life off the course, too.
