We have chokers and people who never choke, an angry listener with bleeding ears asks a question about loud drivers, and The Players Championship.

tst_podcast.gifGreg Owen choked away a tournament at the 17th with a three-put from 40 inches, Sam Saunders may be the clup champion but he can't play on the PGA Tour yet, and Fred Funk weighs in on Distance. Also this week, loud drivers, golf's fifth major, making the 17th hole at the TPC of Sawgrass tougher, and some Tiger news - his dad, his putter, his interclub matches (the Tavistock Cup), and his Ryder Cup preparation. Plus, Tim Finchem gets a new contract. This and a whole lot more in this week's Golf Talk Podcast.

Golf Gods "Chip Shots"
Let's Make This Quick



I don't know about you but I love a good shoe shine. It's one of life's small luxuries that I give to my self each time I hit the airport. In my younger days, I'd cart out the metal box of shoe shine supplies on Sunday's and spit shine 'em myself. A few year's later, I still like to get a good “airport shine” but in-between, with kids, a multitude of jobs and other priorities, I simply found myself slacking on the daily shoe care.



That's why I was so excited when I recently discovered the Kiwi Express Sponge. As the company literature says, it's a ridiculously fast, no buff, no hassle way to shine your shoes. Seriously, with this product it takes no more than 30 seconds to quickly shine a pair of shoes. Kiwi Express also has a unique 'liquid level indicator'. This indicator tells you exactly how much shoeshine liquid has been used, so you know when it is time to replace your sponge. All you do for a near perfect shine is wipe the major debris off your shoes; grab the sponge in one hand and your shoe in the other. Glide the sponge over the leather and you're done. There's no buffing and no tip.



Ironically, Kiwi has worked pretty hard to get the word out about this product, launching an innovative web-based marketing campaign to help make shoe-shining relevant again. Here's a cool link to a viral, web-based marketing campaign. Hong Kong born animator Saiman Chow was tapped to create a series of short, quirky animated films that featured the long-time Kiwi icon -- the bird after which the company is named -- and were designed to drive home the message about the Shine Sponge product, "This stuff is crazy fast."

This show was recorded with Audio Hijack Pro over a Skype connection. We then used Soundtrack Pro to edit the show and GarageBand to produce the AAC file from the AIFF file, to add the artwork, and so forth. Feeder was used to create the XML file.



Note: This is an AAC (MP4) file, an open file format. iTunes - free software - can play AAC files, as can numerous other players, though we heartily recommend iTunes.
