Another story of which I am proud, that was written not for publication but for class. Look, now it’s published 🙂
On the PGA Tour, announcers know the yardage of every drive, chip and putt. The technology is named ShotLink. Conversely, the PGA Champions Tour, made up of pro golfers ages 50 and older, could once afford to measure half the holes on the golf course – until two years ago. Rick Vargo was a spectator at the Toshiba Classic in 2002, which features celebrities like Ray Romano during the week and the PGA Champions Tournament on the weekend. He enjoyed it and signed up to volunteer the following year.
