Golf Channel attacks slow play
The Golf Wire reports that “Golf Channel is tackling the issue of slow play head on and will direct its resources during the month of June toward a company-wide initiative titled ‘It’s About Time, designed to help promote ideas and enterprises that improve pace of play in golf and assist with the growth of the game.”
The story quotes Golf Channel president Mike McCarley: ”As caretakers of golf and an engine that can help fuel the growth of the game, it’s our responsibility to promote initiatives that not only will make the experience more enjoyable for those who currently play, but also make golf an attractive recreational choice for those taking up the game for the first time,” said Golf Channel President Mike McCarley. “The increase in average time it takes to play a round of golf has become an issue that deserves attention and we feel a duty to help make positive changes for the future of the game. We will not only shine a spotlight on the issue but also offer solutions to golfers looking to speed up their games.”
