The Golf Club: July 26, 2014

BOSTON (CBS) - On the latest edition of The Golf Club, Hardy chats with a friend of the show and gets the low down on a course in Haverhill, but first he sat down with Mike Antolini, the championship director of the Deutsche Bank Championship, New England's premier PGA TOUR event.

Placed right in the heart of Labor Day weekend at TPC Boston in Norton, the Deutsche Bank is one of Hardy's favorite weekends of the year. The tournament itself is unique in that it runs Friday-Monday -- not your typical Thursday-Sunday.

Antolini has been involved with the tournament for many years, but this is his first at the helm in his new position.

"We're really excited for another great weekend of championship golf," Antolini told Hardy.

Listen below for the full interview, including volunteer opportunities and how and why you should attend the Deutsche Bank:

Hardy spoke with the golf pro at Renaissance in Haverhill on the latest edition of The Golf Club, a man by the name of Mike McGillicuddy.

Renaissance is relatively young in terms of golf course age, but it's already quite popular in the region.

"It really is one of the jewels in the Merrimack Valley/North Shore area," said McGillicuddy.

Hardy once again interviewed Paul Gozbekian, a personal trainer at Equinox and the Titleist Performance Institute

Maybe you're like Hardy in that the wear-and-tear of aging has really hurt your golf game. So to fix his ailments, particularly his back, Hardy sought out Gozbekian a couple months ago and the improvements have been significant.

"Paul and I have been working out for a couple of months on a bunch of different stuff, trying to get some of my core and back strength back after dealing with a bad back for so long. It's been great. Thank you so much. To get to the point where you can feel so much better and be back out on the golf course, and at least not be in pain while you're miserable has been great," Hardy joked.

Hardy adds he's starting to see the results, but it's certainly been a process. Maybe you can relate?
