Those Weekend Golf Guys
About This Show
Take one of the country’s top golf instructors and pair him with an outstanding radio personality and you have the formula for one helluva Golf Talk Radio Show.
John Ashton (the show host) has enjoyed success as a morning personality on radio stations from Bangor, Maine to Dallas, Texas. He’s also embarrassed himself on many golf courses in the same locations. John is a hacker, struggling to break 80 (OK, 90) but has a passion and enjoyment of the game, a skewed sense of humor and an outlook that makes this the most entertaining Golf Show around.
Jeff Smith, PGA (the show’s co-host) is the Director of Instruction at Otter Creek GC in Columbus, Indiana. He enjoys the innate ability to create word pictures so, even on the radio, his tips and techniques to improve your game are clear, easy to follow and help listeners cut strokes on their very next round.

Golfers raise a LOT of money for charity every year. In the US last year there was a total of $3.9 Billion raised by golf and golfers, from the PGA down to Mom & Pop's scramble. And that was a full 1% of the total of all philanthropic giving in the country. Yay Us!!!
This week we talk about charity. John has a hilarious story from a charity scramble, Jeff coaches you through playing in your first charity scramble outing and we interview a guest who is heavily invested in golf, philanthropy and overall positive effects.
Shail Shah is a fashion designer who has started the new company, 2-DG. He has a beautiful golf polo shirt made from a material spun from threads from reclaimed fishing nets, so he helps the environment. It's SPF-50 so it helps protect the golfer from Melanoma. AND, he is giving 10% of the total sales to a cancer researcher who is getting close to a successful treatment and even a cure.
Look good, feel good and help out! Buy one of his shirts here, 2-dg.com
