Global Golf Post: Texas Star

Global Golf Post, Jordan Speith Rules

Inside this week’s issue of Global Golf Post, the hugely talented Jordan Spieth reminded us why everything’s bigger in Texas, capturing his second Tour title at Innisbrook’s Copperhead Course in a stirring playoff. It’s safe to say the 21-year-old will be a fixture on golf’s biggest stage for years to come.

Tiger Woods won’t be playing in this week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational, perhaps fearing his short game would leave him looking like a jester in the King’s court. Oh, and speaking of Arnold Palmer … he pulled in a cool $42 million last year through endorsement and licensing deals. In 50 years on Tour, Palmer’s total on-course earnings were just under $7 million.

Gotta love inflation.

Also in the issue, BCG takes readers on a while ride with the innovative GolfBoard, a new “wave” of technology letting guests at Dubsdread Golf Course ‘Surf the Earth.’ The battery-operated, single person people mover cruises at speeds of up to 14 mph and eliminates the sedentary activity of sitting in a traditional golf cart. It’s also attracting a new generation of golfers to the historic Orlando layout. Enjoy the read!
