In this week's podcast, host Dave Berner talks to Kevin Ramsey, vice president of Golfplan, about high-end golf in Italy.'s Mike Bailey raves about golf in Mexico.

"Oh my gosh, I just got back from the Puerto Vallarta area," he says. "I played the new Jack Nicklaus course at Punta Mita and also played the Pacifico course, which is the original Nicklaus course. I'm telling you, two of the most spectacular golf courses I've ever played."

Don't even bother bringing your driver the next time you head to the range, says Chuck Evans of Medicus Golf.

"As good as you think your ball striking is, and your short game, it could always be better," Evans says. "You become more proficient at your short game, and you'll drop five to seven shots – without changing your full swing at all."
