Real Golf Radio – 7/26 – State of the golf biz & Rory’s Open romp

Rory McIlroy is a three-time major champion at the tender age of 25, staring at the career Grand Slam if and when he wins a green jacket at the Masters. Brian Taylor and Bob Casper talk about the victory with Ryan Ballengee from Golf News Net.

Casey Alexander from Gilford Securities joins Brian and Bob to talk about the health of the golf industry in the wake of Dick's Sporting Goods laying off some 500 PGA of America professionals employed in its stores. Ballengee talks about what the move means to him for the future of the industry.

And the Caddie makes his weekly appearance on the show.
