"In 1960, a handshake between Mark McCormack and Arnold Palmer became the foundation of not just golf management but modern sport business. In 2017 and beyond, we must all work toward addressing some of the challenges that the sport naturally has to overcome to evolve and remain relevant. With, for example, the re-introduction of golf to the 2016 Olympics, the momentum is on our side. There is great opportunity in global golf." – Guy Kinnings, Global Head of Golf, IMG
"One of the key challenges for the golf industry is to be alive to the changing demands of people’s modern day lifestyles, particularly when research demonstrates that a younger generation of golfers would like to play alternative, shorter forms of the game in a quicker time. It is also important that we educate golf’s current and future executives about effective business and management practices and this book will have an important role to play in that regard." – Martin Slumbers, Chief Executive, The R&A--This text refers to the hardcover edition.
