Changing The Face Of Golf

October 5th, 2016

The fact that our Opinion Piece from Dellanzo Global was the most-read story on GBN.com last week speaks volumes for our readers’ interest in growing the game by making it more relevant in the modern world.

The international media shone their spotlight on The Ryder Cup at Hazeltine last week and discovered everything that is great about the game: incredible skill, outstanding sportsmanship, deep emotions, and, yes, non-stop drama and excitement. I know that it has been said many times before but, this time, ‘Golf was the Winner’ – it really was.
