Oslo, Norway – A Norwegian mechanical engineer started examining the mechanics of putter construction and came up with the design for a highly superior putting instrument. Because his putter head put most of the weight on the toe and heel, leaving the middle almost a shell, it made a “ping” sound when it met the ball. So the mechanical engineer called it the Ping Putter.

Stop Thinking ‘Retention’, Start Thinking ‘Relationship’

Retention is something of a time-selective phrase in club management.

While that is a plausible (and at times necessary) position to take, the side effect is […]
