GSfMO #352 Barney Adams, founder of Adams Golf, starts part 2 talking about his book “The WOW Factor” based on how he became a successful entrepreneur. For him, every business is a service business. Then he slides into the mission of Adams Golf when he was in charge. We get into a heated conversation on golf equipment and the state of the industry. Golf club makers have 2 concerns; “A&F; Airborn and Forward”. His primary reason for coming onto our podcast was to discuss the Tee It Forward Program that he originated before presenting it to the PGA and USGA. Fred hates the name and lets him know, so we brainstorm new ideas.

GSfMO#351Chances are you’ve heard something about the USGA and PGA’s latest program to speed up the pace of play and make the game more fun for everyone called “Tee It Forward”. Chances are one of the thousands of courses that are participating in the program is near you. But what exactly is Tee It Forward? Well, you’ll be surprised to learn that it’s not just about playing the front tees to embarrass yourself in front of your friends. Barney Adams, entrepreneur, club maker, and founder of Adams Golf came up with this idea and convinced the PGA and USGA of its merit. This is part 1 of 2 in which Barney explains to host Fred Greene that it’s a really good idea, despite it’s name. In part 2 for Members Only, Fred pushes Barney for more of an explanation and tries to come up with a better name.
