4. Where does Pace of Play rank as an industry priority? Top 3?
Pace of play is likely the number one complaint we might receive when we are full of players. Everyone thinks they can play faster, or that play is too slow. For the 10% core golfer, conditions will be ahead of that – as they also know that busy days can be slower.
5. Why has your course decided to invest in Tagmarshal?
We have a 600-yard course with a hilltop in the middle of the course from where we can see most holes. We are also a very public course, and we attract beginners in our mix. Before we saw TM, we were considering cameras. Once we saw TM, we realized it was like having intelligent cameras everywhere on the course. We can see where every tag is – and more importantly – we get real-time data on every tag that shows who is delaying and who is not. It points us to problem spots without us having to discern the problem from the hilltop.
6. What are the top benefits of incorporating Tagmarshal into your daily operations?
TM is our eyes in the sky – we see the flow of the course. It gives us instant data that we can use for that slower golfer, and to chat with the player who thinks the pace is slow but does not realize they are on time-par for the course. It brings an intelligent view of our course from open to close, every day.
7. Describe Tagmarshal in three words.
Great course monitor, giving us eyes on the course to where everyone is.
8. Who’s the slowest and fastest player on Tour?
I don’t follow the tour to the extent you might think, as I’m more concerned about the public player, so I will leave this to the more informed on the tour data 🙂
9. If you could be a caddie on Tour, whose caddie would you like to be and why?
I would have to caddie for a player that has fun while out there. Matt Kuchar always has a smile or Adam Scott. These are the 2 that come to mind.
