I'm going to steer clear of questions about Rob's bag, of which I'm sure there will be many 🤪

So I'll ask this - having moved into golf as a career later on in your professional life, what were you able to take from your previous career and build off of in the golf industry? Were there any parallels, or on the other hand, things about golf that you had a preconceived notion about that were disproven once you started in the industry?

Me first me first! 

We all know you like to run through clubs and have a ever rotating bag... but what is the one singular club that you miss the most? Also Why? 

I also wanted to ask what the value of the TXG fitting was for you and how you found that whole experience... especially knowing it was going up on youtube for all of us to see?

Welcome Rob, thank you for taking the time!

 

What is the biggest misconception of the club fitting process? And what are the biggest differences between a great club fitter and a poor one?

Curious about the revenue side of golf course operations - in approximate %tge terms, about how much do weekly outings (corporate, charity) ...

1. Contribute to a club's annual top line revenue?

2. Is the margin .. higher, lower, about the same .. as other revenue sources (F&B, memberships, pro shop, etc.)?

Thanks!

Rob,

Thanks for answering these questions.  Which one iron brand have you found that caters the best to higher handicappers?  Same for woods.  Is there a one stop for all manufacturer? What one piece of advice would you give to a beginner golfer in terms of fitting and equipment? How many iron/fww/driver sets have you "tested"

Of all the extra gadgets that can be added to the bag taken out on the course (besides clubs of any kind and the bag itself), what in your experience is the most useful device or product that can be taken out onto the course for the average weekend/weekday golfer to enhance the experience of golf?

Purposely leaving the subject wide open as a browse through any pro shop or golf emporium reveals the wide array of add-on things that people buy to put in their bag for any number of reasons, from your longevity in the service industry with hotels and golf I am sure something fits this category of best-to-have!   Will be interesting to see if it is on my list of those things and perhaps something I have not yet thought of (ok, maybe fishing here)  (maybe)

Hi Rob. Thanks for taking the time to do the AMA and once again for all the work you do in support of MGS's forum. My question is probably answered somewhere in your long list of threads and posts but here goes for those like me who don't know. When did you first start playing golf and who has been the biggest influence affecting interest in the game and/or your skill level (i.e. instructor)?

You love tinkering with your WITB all the time. Its pretty fascinating to see what you are gaming. Can you provide 3 tips on what other MGSers should think about when looking to add different clubs to their bag.
