“Golf Interact’s vision is to drive golf into the future through innovation in events, technology, and products. We are taking on a large challenge in order to create a large opportunity for all involved and most importantly, golf as a whole. Golf has a major “access” problem; The true value of the industry is in the experience of golf, not products, or anything else but simply the experience the game gives those who play it on any level. So we are taking on this growth mission by delivering more access to the experience of golf to more golfers, more courses, and more communities. This is what the SwingThought TOUR system is about. Our plan is one of several phases and we started with purchasing the NGA Hooters and eGolf Tours in 2015. This was not an easy undertaking and the transition has been challenging and we are looking forward to the next phase of our plans, which is to deliver consistency and scale the SwingThought TOUR through strong operations, positive and determined leadership, in 2017 and beyond. No other tour at this level comes close to the product we offer the players, fans, sponsors, and partners. Our tour staff does a wonderful job putting on events that develop and advance players. Our board, team members, and brand supporters aren’t afraid to see challenges as opportunities. We have a BIG vision and, frankly, if you don’t have a big vision for yourself or what you do/represent, then why do it? Players, the tour, casual golfers, supporters – all of us need to GO BIG together to drive golf into the future. As a player and as someone who has worked in the industry for many years I have experienced many of the problems that exist, and out of these experiences our solutions with Golf Interact and the SwingThought TOUR were born. I hope other industry influencers step up and create solutions that create value and grow the game.” – Michael Rush
