SCOTTSDALE, AZ, — 8AM Golf congratulates company President Hoyt McGarity on being named by Golf Inc. as an “Up and Coming Superstar” in the magazine’s Power 2020 issue.
Golf Inc.’s Power 2020 issue, released late last month, profiles the power brokers of the golf world and highlights “a new generation of leaders moving up in the ranks.” McGarity debuts on the annual list as a top “thirty-something” among emerging titans in the industry.
McGarity oversees the portfolio of 8AM Golf-related businesses owned by entrepreneur and philanthropist Howard Milstein that make up 8AM Golf. The Golf Inc. article describes McGarity’s impressive personal and professional history and his many accomplishments in the golf industry.
Since the holding company was formed in 2018, McGarity has helped steer the family of brands, which includes GOLF Magazine and Golf.com, Miura Golf, True Spec Golf, Nicklaus Companies, GolfLogix, Club Conex and the recently launched wager app Chirp. With a collaboration of resources across brands, 8AM Golf companies have all achieved sustained growth and success.
“8AM Golf was formed to bolster some of the most prominent brands in golf with innovative practices to bring new value to consumers,” McGarity said. “I appreciate that Golf Inc. has recognized what we’ve been able to accomplish, and our ambitious vision for the future.” 8AM Golf is well represented in the Golf Inc. issue. Company owner Howard Milstein, 8AM Golf’s Chairman, appears once again, moving up from #19 to #11 in this year’s Most Powerful People in Golf rankings.
“Hoyt McGarity is truly deserving of this honor,” Mr. Milstein said. “He brings unusual energy and entrepreneurial spirit to his work, and I’m certain he’ll be a leader in the golf industry for some time to come.”
