U.S. Amateur Advice from 2016 Champ Curtis Luck
Listen now
Before Shane departs for Denver to compete in his first-ever U.S. Amateur he catches up with the 2016 champion, Curtis Luck. Curtis and Shane talk about the 2023 Korn Ferry Tour season and what has worked as of late for Curtis before reminiscing about his win at Oakland Hills. Curtis talks about a fairway bunker shot he hit in the stroke play that got him really going that week, how the two previous U.S. Ams he played in helped in terms of a conservative approach to stroke play, and then gives Shane some advice on how to approach the first two days and then some fun tricks to toss in if he makes it to match play. Curtis is one of the truly good dudes in professional golf so a big thanks for him taking some time during a tournament week to jump on the pod and dish some amateur golf advice to our host. ___________ The new PING Proving Grounds Podcast: https://omny.fm/shows/ping-proving-grounds/playlists/podcast Bacon's Breakfast Blend with Good Walk Coffee Company: https://goodwalkcoffee.com/bacon The Golfer's Zoo: https://www.back9press.com/bacon Ground Under Repair: https://gurdesigns.com/ See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
