How many would have bet on an article like this:https://www.wsj.com/business/for-the-first-time-most-golfers-play-off-course-6359917d?mod=hp_lead_pos11appearing in The Wall Street Journal? This could shake out and lead in a number of directions. For example, for the last few months I have wondered about the future of practice ranges vs. hitting bays/simulators and private clubs, etc. Land keeps getting more and more expensive, simulators better and less expensive (and providing more precise feedback to those who understand the "physics" involved), etc.Obviously the golf industry is not protected from change. I remember some 50 or so years ago, Titleist golf ball packaging included the phrase "Sold only through green grass professionals" (or something to that effect). Try telling that to Dick's Spring Goods stores...or PGA Superstores for that matter.Thoughts regarding golf's expansion off of green grass and related issues?
