The motivation for this podcast is to be a resource for those golfers looking to improve, and who enjoy learning about some of the innovative products available to players today. Through these shows, we hope to encourage every player to get better by sharing the learning process, including both the failures and successes that we are experiencing.
Perhaps you are a better player who is working on a certain aspect of your game; we would love to hear what you are working on and how's it going? Maybe you are getting lessons for the very first time (like our host!) and you want to help others who may be considering the same thing. We want to hear those stories! Send them in through our website, chasingrednumbers.com

Trackman lesson and the TopGolf experience:Topgolf
is an enjoyable place to take friends, family, or co-workers... really anyone you want to spend some time with, while also getting to take some golf swings! You can check out some of what they have to offer on their YouTube channel
While Topgolf is fun, and can be used to scratch the "golf itch," practice time with a Trackman
is much more profitable. I went to a local business (Rok Golf, Austin, Texas
) that offers the opportunity to rent a hitting bay complete with Trackman launch monitor data and video swing recording. Trackman offers free sign-up through the mytrackman.com
site, where the data collected from your Trackman session is available to view. The amount of data is crazy (What does Trackman track?
). They also offer a helpful blog post
about which numbers golfers should be paying attention to. Good stuff!
MyGolfSpy Launch Monitor Review:
We talked briefly about the review
MyGolfSpy did last year of personal launch monitors, that are much closer to the average golfer's price range, with the Rapsodo MLM
taking the top honor.
Do you have one of these personal launch monitors, or possibly one that is not mentioned? Please let us know
if it would be a benefit to others of us!
PGA Tour and LPGA Tour News:
Dustin Johnson capped a great 2019-2020 PGA Tour season by taking home the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup, along with $15 million. What did you think of the format for the final playoff event? Who's your pick to win Player of the Year?
The 2020-2021 PGA Tour season starts THIS WEEK with the Safeway Open
from the Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, CA, where Cameron Champ is defending. Many are looking forward to the following week and the U.S. Open
from Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, N.Y.
The LPGA Tour had an open week last week, as the ladies prepared for their second major tournament, the ANA Inspiration
at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, CA. Last year's champion, and world #1, Jin Young Ko (South Korea) will not be defending as she chose not to travel from South Korea to the United States. However, players ranked #2-#9 on the ladies world Rolex rankings will be in the field and it looks to be another great tournament, complete with hot temperatures
