” I trust in developing my game on @swingthought #The44STTOUR 🏌️🏦 swingthought.com/the44 #developandadvance #STTour #growthegame ”
There are more than 20 ST TOUR event opportunities through Oct 29th across 3 series – National Series, State Series, Qualifying Series (Both SS, QS pays out 45% of field -Carolinas SS starts up in May, QS in September around qualifiers)
“Launching ‘The 44’ race is ST TOUR aligning itself more properly with players goals and our vision to deliver more access to golf. This is just the beginning as we expect this offering to become a staple on ST TOUR and grow.
We are not a mini tour. Mini tours run events to survive for a while. We are a developmental system to develop and advance golfers, courses and communities. If you compete and you have goals (wether its to shoot 75 in a tournament or be #1 in the world) ST TOUR is the system for you.
ST TOUR offers unmatched incentives that directly provide more access to the next level. Similar to A-AA baseball. We are just getting started building out this system and these offerings.
It doesn’t take as much as we think to change something that has needed change for a long time. U.S developmental golf needs change. Unprecedented scale and opportunity is much closer than most may think. Sometimes you just have to create what you want to see happen for it to happen.
