As in previous posts, some #GOLFCHAT authors have put pen to paper and have attacked a difficult topic. This month’s topic: “Millennials are ______ golf!” I hope you enjoy the different views and thoughts about the golf industry and how the younger generation is or is not living up to their responsibility to grow the game. I hope you enjoy reading their articles and feel free to drop them or me a line!
In no particular order:
Soren Jacobsen: Millennials are Socializing Golf– My first thought when considering how the game is being stewarded by the “youth” of today always goes back to my pre-wedding round of golf with the (mostly) guys. Almost everyone (except my dad) was younger by me, many by a couple of decades. They seemed to play a different game than me, and I’m not just talking about the Happy Gilmore cuts from the tee box.
Zeb Welborn: Millennials Are Not Connected to Golf – It’s a question you hear being asked more often at courses in 2017 as concerns grows that the next generation isn’t taking up the game with as much passion and enthusiasm as their parents and grandparents.
Pete Miller: Millennials Are Saving Golf – The Millennial generation, generally those born from the early 1980’s to 2000, is arguably the most polarizing generation in history. However you feel about their generation, they’re at the prime age to take up golf. What does that mean for the game? I argue that Millennials are saving golf.
