The No Gimmes Podcast talks to professional golfers, teaching professionals, and innovators in the golfing world so they can share their story with you. The culture of golf is shifting, and I want this show to be your way of understanding where the game is headed by hearing it from the people who are influencing it the most. 


No Gimmes aims to sit down with people in golf to discuss everything from swing mechanics and love for the game, to pre round rituals to ensure good play on the course.

Chris Derr sits down with Chris Smeal, PGA Class A professional, and founder/ director of the Future Champions Golf Academy and Tour based out of San Diego, CA. He has grown the tour into the second largest junior tour in the nation behind only the AJGA.


Derr used to work with Smeal in high school and credits the development of his game to Smeal. In this podcast they discuss the inception of Future Champions, how to make golf fun for juniors, and the importance of camaraderie in golf at the junior level.
