Golf Unfiltered Podcast 57: Introducing Hack to Hero


What would it take for a regular guy to qualify for the US Open? Our friend Matt Castonguay returns to the Golf Unfiltered Podcast to introduce the newest feature on the site: Hack to Hero.

Matt and I discuss where he got the idea of changing everything about his life -- health, attitudes, beliefs, habits and golf game -- in order to achieve his goal of qualifying for the 2017 US Open in Erin Hills. To what extreme will he have to go to achieve his dream? What does Matt feel will be the most difficult element of his transformation?

This is the beginning of what will be an in-depth, unfiltered, uncensored look into what an amateur golfer must sacrifice to play in the greatest national golf championship around. This is Tin Cup on steroids.
