Michael Vrska III is the second Vrska I've had on the show! Back in Season 1, I actually had his dad on the show! You can listen to that episode here. That being said, MV3 is creating his own path in the world of golf. At the age of 25, he is already the Marketing Manager for one of my favorite golf companies, Asher Golf. We talk about nicknames as a kid, the brand itself, a fun story about the release of one of their most popular releases ever, and when, how, and why he fell in love with golf. I highly recommend checking out everything AsherGolf.com has to offer, especially their golf gloves. I've been using them every season since I started playing. You can follow MV3 at @VrskatheThird1 on Twitter. You can also follow me on Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube @KrisMcEwen. Also, check out our brand new store! I have a few Golf Origin Stories t-shirts on the site and there are more things to come! Finally, if you're into golf course architecture, check out the latest Talking Golf Getaways podcast with Keith Rhebb!

Your actions on the golf course will say the most about you as a golfer - much more than your golf clubs or score ever will. Etiquette has to do with manners. Golfers should show courtesy and sportsmanship at all times to their playing partners. The game of golf has a rich heritage based on a code of honor and proper etiquette. No other sport played by millions of amateurs worldwide and professionals for millions of dollars in prize money has a system of penalties whereby the player is required to call penalties on themselves. There are a few rules of golf etiquette that apply all the time, while others are specific to certain areas of the course. This guide is designed to help the reader understand the basic elements of golf etiquette and what is expected of them when they play a round of golf.Remember, golf is a game. My hope is that you will remember and enjoy using these golf etiquette tips. Play well and have fun!http://www.golfetiquette101.com/Good Golfing!Avila Beach Golf Resort - www.avilabeachresort.com Blacklake Golf Resort - www.blacklake.comInn at Avila Beach - www.avilabeachca.comAvila LaFonda Hotel - www.avilalafondahotel.comGolfland Warehouse - www.golflandwarehouse.comSlickstix - www.slickstix.comFor more information on Golf Talk Radio with Mike & Billy visit www.golftalkradio.com and visit www.centralcoasttoday.com for Golf Talk TV with Mike & Billy.
