The 19th Hole Golf Show: We buy golf clubs at Mike’s Golf Shop

On this week's edition of The 19th Hole Golf Show, Ryan talks with the man behind the latest viral golf ad, Mike Mixson. Mike owns, you guessed it, Mike's Golf Shop in Chattanooga, Tenn., and his self-shot ad has become a YouTube sensation.

Ryan got to know Mike a bit and talked about:

  • Why he shot the ad in the first place
  • His loves, golf and music, and why he owns stores selling both
  • How the golf-club business is changing
  • Will he expand
  • How the ad has helped his business
  • And why he might get into selling guns
