WHY ST TOUR

WHY ST TOUR

SwingThought TOUR was built with a BIG vision in mind to deliver more access to the experience of golf to golfers, courses and communities
Our tour is owned and operated by Golf Interact a parent company that is managed by a number of entrepreneurs, and led by me, a professional golfer, entrepreneur, and fellow investor.  I started businesses in college, worked for Callaway, turned pro a few years ago, and I have played competitive golf most of my life. As a company we are absolutely committed to delivering a system that scales the value proposition for all involved. We made a number of changes during our consolidation period of the former legacy tours run by previous leadership, and we will continue our pursuit of our vision through successes and challenges.
I want to help players but even more so I want to help golf. It is one of my deepest of hopes that in that weird and strange sentence that you take my desire and vision for something bigger than the current landscape, circumstances, as the evidence that I do in fact love my fellow players. We, as a tour team and at Golf Interact, work to serve you through our corporate vision and plans. This is what motivates us to take on big challenges. There is more for you and us all than what has been available in this segment of the industry. Please join us and enjoy our tour benefits along the way, and they will grow. As more players get behind ST TOUR, more benefits will come. We have a number of major sponsors just waiting for our system to ignite. Let’s compete, and let’s also build together. We are building something much greater for the whole so as individuals we can experience golf more, and to a greater degree. I truly hope you enjoy your experience on the ST TOUR and you develop and advance. 
I could write a million and one words on this subject as a love letter to players and/or golf but no one likes to read anymore so I will just see you out there in 2017!
Not all goals can be mini. I would argue none should be.
Michael Rush –  Founder & CEO – Golf Interact / SwingThought TOUR
