Francis Catalano, 18, playing the VERO X1, qualifies for the 2021 U.S. Amateur. He had two eagles, seven birdies and just one bogey for a 60 on his morning round to set a new course record at Soule Park Golf Course in Ojai, Calif. He followed his stellar morning round with a 68, to win medalist honors at 12-under 138. 

Listen as we discuss goals, systems and habits of successful junior golfers. We make a distinction between goals and systems (kudos to James Clear "Atomic Habits") We touch on staying in the moment and the importance of taking things one shot at a time (kudos to David Goggins and the Navy Seal approach) Cold showers anyone? Francis was truly a special guest on our podcast and we hope you enjoy these memorable nuggets of wisdom to playing better golf!
