The 19th Hole Golf Show – 1/28/14 – Is golf worth saving?


On this week's edition of The 19th Hole Golf Show, Ryan Ballengee shares his thoughts on HackGolf and the ideas that might spur growth in the game.

Among the questions asked include:

  • Should the goal be to increase the number of golfers?
  • Instead should we focus on increasing the number of core golfers?
  • What if the problem isn't the game of golf but how it's delivered?
  • How does golf deal with the flight from the suburbs by young people?
