Play Golf America, not First Tee, is growing golf, says reader

The Goal

The First Tee is a real estate and charity deduction scam for the PGA Tour and its sponsors. While they have made a huge deal about building these facilities, the REAL impact of FT is minimal on actually growing the game. Play Golf America, on the other hand, is an effective, co-ordinated program that has had a significant effect on getting real people and families out to courses and actually playing golf. As I said, the PGA of America is the only national organization doing something real for the game, not just for cynical public relations.
