I admit. I do not know who this guy is except what I read in this article. Some of his ideas are mildly interesting, but the guy apparently has never had to think very hard in his life. Why is he talking? He just about contradicts himself: "We have to make the game go faster and...Get more people to play — which will also happen as it gets quicker " "Get ‘em to stay one more hour on property to participate in something else when they play golf. " He does not do math: " When you look at the statistics, 44% of golfers play less than 10 times a year " " We need to get that 44% to play an 11th time. If we do, that’s 10 percent more volume from them " I don't think he understands the logistics of how TopGolf works. " Look at TopGolf, who’s taken the game and reinvented it in a different kind of way for a different kind of audience and look at the success they’ve had by energizing golf. You wonder: Why couldn’t clubs do that at certain times?" He thinks that broadening the base means to make the sport more exclusive. He says so in several places. This example is typical. " I don’t think you can have golf without hospitality; the two are one thing. There is no golf if we don’t work on creating the experience, and that experience doesn’t only happen on the course." Golf Course Rescue: How Jon Taffer thinks golf can save itself Iconic "Bar Rescue" host Jon Taffer started in the golf industry—and he's got strong opinions on how courses should adapt to a changing world.
IPS 4.2 is going to introduce something called "Clubs." We had "groups" or something similar on Huddler, and now it's coming to IPS in a more powerful way. https://invisionpower.com/news/new-clubs-r1017/ There's some information on it. My question for all of you… how would you like to see this implemented? Let's use this topic to brainstorm. What kind of club would you like to create? To join? Clubs don't have to be strictly golf-related.
So for some back story I had played a little golf here and there up until januaty 2016, it was my junior years golf season start and I wanted to be good. I was a 100s golfer in 2015 and these were my 2016 results thus far 101, 98, 95, 93, 93, 90, 87, 91, 85 each new score is one week later and new tournament. I have started practicing everyday and now work at a golf course and have improved vastly (partly thanks to my swing coach Mark Gray I highly recommend his website www.theprozone.net) as of today my handicap calculated from April 25th to may 22nd is - 7.4, today I played 9 holes and was only 2 over. I plan to keep practicing every day this summer and am playing on the STPGA Junior Tour and the Beltway Jr Golf Tour, I will update yall with each tournament. I hope to earn a spot on a college team, scholarship or not, and eventually move up to a bigger school. I want to either be a tour pro/pro am player or a PGA caddie. I hit about 50% greens in regulation and 80% fairways and these numbers are growing higher every time I play. I can make all 10ft> putts basically and many 15ft and some 20ft. I have basically dropped 20+ strokes in 5 months and am only getting more into golf daily. Any advice, tips, recommendations, etc. Are appreciated! PS I'm 17, going into my senior year, and live in the Austin Texas metropolitan (between Driftwood and westlake).
