There was certainly a heated response to my article last week about whether clubs should engage PGA pros or not? 40 people commented on the site, another 30 started a Linkedin discussion and my personal inbox was flooded, mainly with hate mail!
Firstly I would like to make it quite clear that in my original article I did not give an opinion on the matter but merely quoted conversations I had with owners who where equally split on the subject.
For the record I am in fact in favor of hiring PGA Professionals and will be at the show this week with a bunch of my PGA friends (Yes I do still have them) They where as astonished as I was about the negative and PERSONAL nature of the responses I received!
So then why even publish the comments of detractors? Because the conversation is going on anyway behind the scenes, on chat sites and at industry events so you might as well take it out front and make a strong case in favor of PGA Pros which I think the majority of the comments did!
