Golf is making its slow return to the world, adding more intrigue to the game than ever. As more of the game opens, interest in golf is rising as people are finding the best place to be is outside. It is a place to escape, breathe, play with family and friends, walk and get some exercise. Those who work and participate in the game of golf know first-hand the incredible benefits it provides.
“With most sport slowly starting to open up again, many countries are each taking a different approach and golf is in a similar predicament. Confusion as to why you can participate in some sports but not golf has been frustrating given it’s not played in a stadium and most physical distancing and other rules can be practiced. Professional golf tournaments have been reorganized and dates changed for each tour worldwide. We all need to be patient during this disruption and work together for the good of the game.” said Marc Player, CEO of The Player Group.
