Five Podcasts To Improve Your Golf IQ (And Entertain You)

As we head towards winter days here in Canada and you consider putting your clubs away for the year, it does not mean you have to fully detach from the game.

One advantage we all have with the prevalence of digital platforms is the accessibility to great information. A growing platform for this are Podcasts which continue to grow in popularity, with a new one seeming to pop up every week. While many will not survive, some are pushing themselves forward due to the quality and frequency of their content.

If you’re new to golf Podcasts, a key element to many of them is golf education. The benefit is that, without hitting a shot, is that you might learn some things that will help your golf score. Either that or maybe you’ll just enjoy the game more.

In that vein, here is a list of five Podcasts that you can look to this off-season to improve your Golf IQ. I’ve listened to many episodes of each one so be assured they deliver the goods and are worth your time.
