Happy new year everyone! Hopefully you've had a good holiday and are ready to kick off your season right. Today I wanted to talk about the three most impactful episodes of the podcast and how you can use them to maximize your off-season.
I came across this article recently and I just had to share it with you. It's from our friend and former guest LPGA National Teacher of the Year, Alison Curdt.
