  • S11, Ep 28, Pt 2: PGA Master Professional John Hughes and Journalist & Author Ward Clayton

John Hughes is not only one of the rare PGA Masters Professionals, he’s also the 2023 North Florida PGA Section Teacher of the Year. His summer residency is up at McLemore outside of Chattanooga. John shares his perspective of McLemore and the new course The Keep. He teaches us why it’s important to positively express our goals, how to consistently make putts inside 5 feet, successfully chip from hard pan lies, and why we should hover our driver off the ground instead of resting it on the ground.

Ward Clayton was the Sports Editor for The Augusta Chronicle and Director of Editorial Services for the PGA Tour. He is the Editorial Director for Augusta National and their digital presence on Masters.com. In 2004 he wrote his first book, “Men on the Bag, The Caddies of Augusta National. He recently came out with an updated version of that book titled, “The Legendary Caddies of Augusta National.” In our conversation, you’ll learn who Stovepipe, Skillet, Pete, and Cemetary are. You’ll discover similar stories about even more legendary caddies when you get your copy of the book which you can find on www.blairpub.com or on Amazon.
