This book however not only grasps the attention of how important these critical aspects of the field are in managing an event such as the U.S. Open, but it forces the reader to realize and understand what it takes to be successful and to make a name for yourself in this field of business. Everyone obviously has an idea of what takes place at a major championship on a golf course, but what most not everyone realizes is what goes on behind the scenes. Not everyone can fully comprehend just what is takes to get the players on the course to play or the extensive work that goes into making the golf course appear the way it does. Feinstein’s main objective in this book is to shine some light on just what it takes to run an event such as the U.S. Open and to contribute acknowledgement to those of whom work extremely hard for the event to happen. The basis of how the golf course Bethpage Black even came into the picture for the ideal course for the 2002 U.S. Open to be held traces back to the people that ran the championship.
Callaway's strategy from 1988-1997 Research and Development From its initial existence R&D and innovative products had been the lifeline of CGC. When Callaway bought into the company his first initiative was to develop original products. Innovation and superior performing products are important in golf because equipment is thought to have a significant impact on player performance. Moreover, innovation was important because CGC had to be the technological leader to sell its products at premium price and continue to exceed customer expectations. The industry was also characterized as being driven by new product development because manufacturers were trying to bet each other to the next "best club" so CGC had to manufacture products that were differentiated from its own existing products as well as those of its competitors.
ACHIEVEMENTS Simply put, Callaway Golf has changed the way the game is played. Golfers around the world have used the company's products to increase enjoyment and improve performance. The best example is the revolutionary Big Bertha line of metal woods. In the era B.B. Before Bertha the driving club induced dread in most golfers.
There are many themes in the book “The Great Gatsby”. I have decided to choose the following theme for a few solid reasons. People that are not trustworthy may be all around you. I chose to do this theme because of the multiple cases in the book proving it such as Jordan Baker cheating in a big golf tournament of hers, or when Tom Buchanan cheats on his wife Daisy. This document will show you multiple excerpts from the book that backs up the theme that I previously showed.
Carnoustie, founded in 1527 as a basic golf course, has since been developed by progression in the game. This course has matured into a championship course, known for its immaculate design and expert green-keepers. The quality of courses in the 16th Century improved greatly. Holes became more difficult and more bunkers were appearing along with trees, thick rough and hazards such as water and out of bounds. In the late 16th century, parkland courses started to emerge along with many links courses due to the environment some courses were situated in.
Many golf equipment companies are constantly trying to improve the different “tools” used during the game. And with the incredible rate of technology, golf equipment is constantly being taken to higher and higher levels. In fact, technology now allows golf equipment so precise and accurate, that many people believe it requires less skill to be a really exceptional golfer. As technology and the study of physics progresses, only newer and better equipment will be produced. This is why a line must be drawn between technology and the skills of today’s players.
In sports, the best athletes are the individuals that give each team a chance to win every game. The bad news for the best athletes is that sometimes their health gets put second to their abilities. Roughly 1.8 to 3.6 million sports related concussions happen each year (Concussion Statistics). Stronger and faster athletes as well as more impact of the hits or falls have doubled the number of concussions in a decade (Concussion Statistics). Concussions can happen to every athlete, but when it happens to the star athletes, it is different.
The game of golf has a history that is rich in technological advances and personal accomplishments, which through time has shown to shape the sport into what it has become today. The organ of golf in it most primary of forms is unknown, but there are many cultures that show golf in times as early as the thirteenth century. Three groups of people claim that they started golf: The English, the Dutch and the Scots. The English say that they started golf because of the sketches of a man apparently preparing to strike a ball in a golf like manner stained into the windows of the Gloucester Cathedral, England. Many scholars doubt that theory because it could have been a man playing cambuca, a popular pastime of English society in that time.
Golfers discovered that the balls that were scarred up seemed to travel further, so they preferred using the old balls to new ones. Eventually golf balls were made with the dimples to simulate the scarring of the old balls. While early golfers may not have realized it, their observation can be proven legitimate by using principles of physics. The scars, or now dimples, actually create turbulence as the air passes over the ball. This in effect reduces the drag on the ball, allowing it to travel further.
To further Ghost Creek’s claim of policy in the advertisement, the owners offer many claims of fact. One claim of fact that is offered by the advertisement is that the magazine, Golf Digest, chose Ghost Creek to be the best new public golf course for the year, 1992. Likewise, another credible golf magazine, Golf Magazine, ranked Ghost Creek 13th out of the top 100 one can play for the year, 1998. Furthermore, many very prestigious golf tournaments have been played on Ghost Creek, including the Nike Tour Championship in 1993 and 1994 and also the 1996 United States Amateur Championship, which was won by the great Tiger Woods. These claims of fact, as one can, see are used to further Ghost Creek’s claim of policy, which is to come and play a great championship golf course.
