WRITTEN BY NEIL SAGEBIEL (that’s me, The Armchair Golfer), this piece appeared in the December 2008 issue of Golf Digest India.
The Decline of American Golf (pdf)
Based on research from the National Golf Foundation, I spell out, and give reasons for, American golf’s decline and provide a basic profile of the American golfer.
I also feature three golfers (two men and a woman) and their playing habits, touch on initiatives to promote the game, and reveal how many times I played in 2008. Any guesses?
