On Next on the Tee we believe that PGA & LPGA Legends, players, top instructors and media members tell great stories that you’ll really enjoy listening to. We are a golf podcast that challenges the notion that you have to be controversial or focused on Tiger Woods’ swing or personal life in order to get people to listen. The way we challenge that notion is by bringing you a great lineup of guests every week who their share stories from inside the ropes plus insights and playing lessons that can help all of us lower our scores, improve our mental approach, and get more enjoyment out the game. We research the details and don’t ask the simple general questions. We hope you’ll make us a regular part of your golf content consumption.
