A Conversation with Wes Johnson Disc Golf Coach
I came across an article back in November of 2021 about a Ribbon Cutting ceremony for a new disc golf course at Georgia Southern Armstrong. The article mentioned a new disc golf club that was open for students to join. I thought it was interesting for a college to be supportive of disc golf and posted on the disc golf answer man Facebook page to see if anyone happened to live there that I could contact and ask some questions about the new course. Someone commented that Wes Johnson was in the photo from the article and that he was hired on as a disc golf team coach. I thought this would make for a great interview to find out what is going on with this college and hire a disc golf coach. I reached out to Wes and he said that the program was in the very early stages and thought it might be better to wait until later to talk about the program. I reached out in June of this year and Wes said the coaching has gone great and that his students played in their first tournament. I asked Wes to be on the disc golf answer man to learn a little bit more about how this program got started, how he put together a coaching plan, and what it is like coaching students about disc golf.

A conversation with Craig from Idio Sports
In this episode I have a conversation with Craig Kitchens from Idio Sports. Back in 2018 Craig got the idea to make a disc golf shoe and then 3 years later he had a prototype. He had people like Nate Sexton testing the shoe and then soon after started a Kickstarter campaign with a goal of raising $119,000 and ended up raising over $260,000. I remember hearing about these shoes back in mid-2021 and to be honest did not think much about it. I had seen other companies try to make disc golf shoes including Dynamic Discs where I was part of the decision making process for the shoes. A disc golf shoe is no easy task. Disc golfers are rough on shoes. I wanted to learn about Craig and Idio sports and what his plan is to make sure he can make a quality disc golf shoe. We dive into the journey of idea to the actual shoe and we also learn about Craig and some of the challenges he faced in a previous business and the lessons he learned that he brings with him to his disc golf shoe company.

He knows he has an unorthodox throw, but that is not what he teaches.

Eric and Tina Oakley Choosing the Right Putter
On today’s DGAM Daily we have Eric and Tina Oakley on the show and continuing with their 2 perspectives series on putting. This time they talk about picking the right putter and being confident with you putting. If you were to ask someone which is the best putter you are going to get so many different answers. Bead..no bead..microbead. Deep dish or shallow...and on and on. It really comes down to what you are comfortable with. This is one of those things that you will need to practice with a few different putters. Picking a putter you are comfortable with gives you confidence. You need confidence to make putts. You think Ricky Wysocki walks up to an 80 foot putt and tells himself he will never make that putt? NO WAY. He is telling himself that he has practiced that shot over and over and can make it. That is why your mindset is so important in every area of your life and in disc golf.  Watch the full video on the Whale Pants YouTube Channel - 2 Perspectives Putting Follow DGAM on Instagram

Are you just unloading your putter from 80 feet away. If you think this is going to level up your disc golf game, you need to think again.
