ING Announces Positions 25-23 In Top Game-Changers List For The Past 30 Years
LAKE MARY, FL – The International Network of Golf has announced numbers 25 through 23 of its Top 30 Game-Changers over the past 30 years in the golf industry.
ING is celebrating its 30th year of networking the golf industry by creating this Top 30 Game-Changers List. The list includes products, services, programs, governing decisions, events, technology, and outstanding performances in competition that have changed the game.
Dozens of nominations for the list were received from a wide variety of people in the golf industry. A committee then trimmed the list to the Top 30, based mainly in the number of nominations each entry received.
ING will gradually publish the results on a bi-weekly basis, with the top two being announced at the 30thAnniversary ING Spring Conference May 31-June 3, 2020 at the Valley Forge Casino Resort in King of Prussia, PA.
Here are positions 25 through 23:
- 25 – Globalization of PGA/LPGA Tours: Golf has always been a worldwide game, but in the past two decades the professional tours have become very globalized. As of early February, eight different countries were represented in the men’s top 25 world rankings, and nine in the women’s rankings. Also, the PGA and LPGA tour schedules include events all across the globe.
- 24 – The First Tee: Now in its third decade, First Tee offers character education programs at golf courses, schools and youth centers in all 50 states, and has expanded to six international locations.
