The Approach will celebrate the new and emerging ways to “consume” golf like digital currency and how you can turn unused assets into rounds of golf; a modern look at gaming and how wagering on the course will never be the same again; technology, and how it can keep you fit and sharp when you’re not playing golf; new fashion trends, including a look at Macklemore’s new golf clothing line, called Bogey Boys; and the traveling golfer.
The Approach also was conceived as a special salute to the ever-growing population of new golfers and those who exist on the fringes of the game. The event welcomes everyone and will be a friendly reminder that golfers do not have to fit into a one-size-fits-all box.
