While golfing obviously requires a high degree of skill, the game is also very cerebral. There are a lot of things to consider before you hit a ball and are able to watch it travel safely onto the illusive green.
As great plotters, planners and tacticians, it makes sense to take a step back and analyze golfers themselves — 29 million strong in the U.S. — and determine what it is exactly that makes the collective golf mind tick.
For example, did you know that 75 percent of the country’s avid golfers would pass up a major life event (like an anniversary or child’s birthday) in order to have a chance to play at Augusta National, home of the Masters tournament? Or that the average golfer spends $2,776 each year on golf?
See if you fit the common bill of being a married (68 percent), male (77.5 percent) and college educated (67 percent) golfer, or if you’re one of the players expanding what it means to be a part of this great sport.
