    Andrew, The only tangible and the most repeated feedback your editor letter received was that outside of 20-something’s in LA the majority of your READERS would prefer less podcasts. If you want to become golfwrx tv and radio, at least give us transcripts please. Podcasts and videos take 5 minutes of information and stretch them into an hour presentation. That’s fine if you are driving and paying 10% attention to listening. Trying to sit down and actually listen or watch for an hour at the snails pace is excruciating. To apply a famous quote: Even Dan Patrick wishes he was Dan Patrick.

      What are your thoughts on a story like this based on the podcast? Link: http://www.golfwrx.com/513650/wrx-crib-sheet-highlights-from-cobras-tour-rep-talking-rickie-fowlers-clubs/

      We’re definitely trying to find a way to provide written stories as well as the audio from the podcasts, as we know there’s people who prefer just one or the other. I’m hoping the timestamps help a bit, too.

      Appreciate the continued feedback from everyone.

        That’s an interesting idea. I see the need to edit the podcast and a transcript would probably have a lot of dead air,etc. and not be very friendly to read verbatim. That’s sort of my issue with listening to it?

      You couldnt be more wrong. Once again go play a 6 hour round and use graphite irons in your irons. This is for people listening at work or on a long commute. Get lost

        “Listening at work?” Oh, I didn’t realize the business model was targeted to thieves.

    Great guest. There was a lot of interesting information. The audio was a bit suspect, but overall a great interview.
