LOUISVILLE, KY – With spring around the corner, golf season is about to enter full swing, and there’s never been a better time to get involved in one of the most popular sports in the country. For those who want to take the first step, John Ashton’s radio show Those Weekend Golf Guys is an excellent place to start.
Despite being one of the most popular sports in the world, golf carries an unfortunate stigma: specifically, its reputation for being “boring,” especially to those who don’t follow the professional circuit. Those Weekend Golf Guys is a nationally syndicated weekly radio broadcast that hopes to shatter that stigma and draw in enthusiasts from all walks of life.
How do they do it? Those Weekend Golf Guys don’t talk about professional golf. Instead, they focus on the sport as a whole and how the average golfer can have more fun with the game. Through this show, golf enthusiasts everywhere can find new ways to enjoy the game and improve their skills, all while being entertained.
How effective has this been? Recently, radio is struggling as an industry, working harder than ever to find the audience it used to have in the age of digital media. As a sign of the times, it wasn’t too long ago that IHeartMedia, one of the largest radio broadcasters in the United States, underwent a major “reorganization” that lead to the layoffs of hundreds of popular radio hosts.
Despite this, John and his crew at Those Weekend Golf Guys have continued to find success in an increasingly tough industry, going on to be listed in “The Top 20 Golf Podcasts You Need To Listen To” from Feedspot and also the honor of “Best Golf Radio Show” (US) from CV Magazine in London, UK.
John Ashton has been a radio personality and morning show host in markets from Bangor, Maine to Atlanta, GA, and all points in between. After twelve years as morning host at the #1 Adult Contemporary station in Louisville, he was told he was too expensive and needed to make his own way in the world. John started Those Weekend Golf Guys as a temporary gig while he looked for another radio opportunity, but the show grew, took on a life of its own, and dragged him along with it.
Once Jeff Smith, PGA, joined the show as co-host and resident golf instruction expert, the show skyrocketed in popularity. Jeff has been recently named The #1 Golf Instructor in Indiana by Golf Digest Magazine and Teacher of the Year by the Indiana section of the PGA.
