New “Golf Yeah” Podcast is Exploring the Business Side of Golf
Showcasing People Who’ve Built Successful Companies and Careers Based on their Love for the Game
Launched in late November, and with 5 podcasts already under its belt, the Golf Yeah podcast (and website) will serve as a resource for people who are, and for people who aspire to be, engaged in any aspect of the golf industry. Golf Yeah features their life stories, lessons learned, sources of inspiration, future aspirations and advice for others.
According to Golf Yeah founder, Gordon G. Andrew, “Whether it involves playing, teaching, selling, writing, filming, inventing, organizing, servicing or promoting…there’s no limit to the stories to be told, or the lessons to be learned from the business of golf. The mission of Golf Yeah is to connect people who love golf, in ways that will help those individuals, as well as the game, to grow and prosper.
Golf Yeah is a labor of love for the New Jersey-based podcast host – a marketing professional with 30 years of experience – who claims to be “semi-addicted to a pursuit that I wasn’t smart enough, lucky enough, or determined enough, to make a living at.” Gordon said that, “Perhaps as a way to borrow some small part of their success, Golf Yeah is devoted to the people who’ve figured out how to convert their love for the game of golf into a business or career. We’ll explore how and why they got there, and whether it’s been worth the struggle.”
Golf Yeah podcasts – produced twice a month throughout the year – will feature 30-minute, lively and thought-provoking interviews with golf industry people who are dedicated to continuing the long tradition of the game, and to ensuring its future success. Golf Yeah has already published podcast interviews with:
– PGA Professional Peter Cowan of North Fork Country Club in New York
– Golf Channel Camera Operator Brian Thorne
– Acclaimed Golf Writer Tom Coyne (A Course Called Ireland; A Course Called Scotland)
– Veteran PGA Tour Caddie John Wood (Currently on the bag for Matt Kuchar)
– Online Golf Instructor Eric Cogorno, who’s built a significant global following
Upcoming Golf Yeah episodes in January 2019 will also feature adaptive golf advocate Gianna Rojas, known as the “One-Handed Lady Golfer.” In addition to podcasts, the Golf Yeah website features relevant commentary, including in-depth show notes, and relevant blog posts. An example of recent Golf Yeah website blog content includes, Why Tiger versus Phil is Bad for Golf.
Gordon will be attending The PGA Merchandising Show in January, and welcomes the opportunity to meet in person with golf industry people, or their representatives, who might be appropriate future Golf Yeah podcast guests. He noted, “We’re looking for people with interesting stories to tell, from all parts of the golf industry. I won’t be conducting on-site podcast interviews at the PGA Show, but would welcome brief introductory meetings; to gain an understanding of who they are, what they’ve accomplished, and the type of insights and guidance they can provide to our podcast audience.”
