"Really pleased to report Jerry and J that round her up 8.7% nationally and we will see probably rounds for the year going to come in up from 440 million to 460 million rounds. It has been most of the golf courses, particularly the public facilities have done very, very well. We have seen increasing memberships at private club. For those seeking the security and protection. Many of the private clubs have not allowed guests in tournaments have been greatly restricted this year. But here I'm a TTE, the rigid castle pines. They just had a great year. One of the lost leaders in a golf course operation is food and beverage. And so will they missed some of the tournament's the Their ability to still conduct a limited, you know, out of window menu still has generated significant revenue form, so all is well in the golf industry. In 2020. Are you surprised by that? The answer is yes, I think if we go back to April in May, Peter Hill, a Billy Casper said that this was going to be a one off year where they were expecting significant decreases in play. The reacting to Cove it the protections you know, mess are required in the pro shop all of the sanitation of parts that were required. Jingle writer carts. The need to bring in additional resource is but all of the golf courses across the country. I've got to give him an a double. Plus, they have just done a fantastic job. To the best of my knowledge. There has not been one reported covert infection from being in or around the golf course facility. And so my hat's off to the profession. They have responded very, very well. Internally within the industry. They've had numerous women are sponsored by the PGA of America. The NGC has done a really good job. The American Society of Golf Course. Architects has been very sensitive. This has the golf course Superintendents Association. What they have been publishing as guidance for those within the industry has been superlative. Now. What about some of the instruction places within the golf course. And maybe the employees were they adversely affected by Kobe? The answer is PPP and the government program really has helped many throughout the industry. If you take a Joe ass like golf Tech who just does a fantastic job he has over 800. PGA professionals while they were closed for a two month period of time. Their business is at capacity. Now I know that J wanted to talk about today what to do in the winter time now that we're coming into these colder temperatures, and that What we're seeing jury is a transition in the industry, particularly here in Colorado from being just a 789 month year round sports to being year round. South Broadway club has put in simulators. They've got two locations in downtown Denver, one on South Broadway, one on Tennison, where it's a bar, and you can come in and rent a simulator and play over 100. Different golf courses for $100 an hour so you can bring in your forces. There are actually other facilities in the state of Colorado that had moved to the same direction of making it a year round activity. The golf club in their day and build a new clubhouse under Mark Kingston and Stuart Brennaman, and they have you should see it. It is just a phenomenal new facility with multiple hitting bays. They've got all kinds of lessons and equipment and physical fitness shows. Still, they said, Great Bob Foreman is going to be on later on the show. Today, You can go up the West Woods in Arvada, and they have the same kind of configuration where you can come in and rent by the hour and Work through the wintertime. One of the options is golf tech they have got, and I'm actually looking to doing this myself. You can literally take 10 lessons over three months, but you also have a club fitting and you get The three months of video practice where you can go in and practice throughout the winter time, which is absolutely sensational. With you all being Colorado Springs, based on the first tee Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs has a simulator as those Cheyenne shadows and so there's all kinds of opportunities for golfers here in the Rocky Mountain to continue the game throughout the year. James Keegan with US from golf Convergence, Jim, Despite that, despite the optimism, are there still some courses who are not going to make it through the winter? Jay. I think the greater risk is restaurants, not making it through the winter we've just seen in Denver's eighties, which has been in business for nearly 50 years, announced that closed Armando in Parker has closed. I think the greater risk is because golf courses air used to not having the Cash flow from November through February by and large in the Rocky Mountains. Based on what we've seen this year, and the cash reserves created. I don't think any of the 262 courses in the state are at risk of closing. Now regarding the restaurants. Have you seen that trend also? Ah, being followed at other state where they have problems with, you know the fact that they have seating capacity and you know the public isn't there as much as it has been in the years past. Do you foresee that Possibly this restaurant trend where they might be closing will continue into the next year and possibly forever. Until there's a vaccine until their herd immunity until we as a nation are Feeling safe and secure and can go back to going to the Rockies Games going to the The avalanche to the Nuggets were the red capacity. I think business is going to feel significantly challenging times coming forward, certainly for the next six months. We're saying how did Jane? Yeah, Go ahead. You do the things you talked.

"We have lost Larry. So anyway. Now. We're going to have to cut you off, Larry, 'cause your voice is taking time to get down here to also but happy father to you. And when you get back in the states, visit call again, we'll have a better connection. You got it. God bless y'all. God bless. Thank you, buddy. Okay. Take care. Now, we got bin Clements, it joined brenten been is on the line. You know, who get Larry very well hopes Texas the pride of Texas. And what's his biggest hit? Dang it. I know this spot, and I didn't expect that. But all the golden California that is what it was. I was thinking of a song that he and his brothers played at Ben Crenshaw's party the, the night after his last round the masters a few years ago. He and his brothers played a song that cappella where they sang the Texas dinner, they did. They really did. They play the song I still have my phone. It's one of the best songs I listen to all the time but Larry guy linens brothers generation. Unbelievable talent. Somebody's listen to nominated for ten Grammy's any one one, but Brent's a big fan of the Catlin's. What's your favorite Catlin, all the golden Kelvin's greats Alec done enough died today or broken lady these? Just keep going and going and going up been you got any tour gossip for us. Well, okay. So you guys were talking about golf, simulators earlier, and I don't know if you knew this, but our President Donald Trump. He had a size put into the White House cost smooth fifty thousand dollars. Brock Obama had put in his first year as president, and I don't think Trump was okay with its with its condition. I think he was an older generation. So we had a new and put in and I'm, I'm told he doesn't use it on executive time, but it is a state of the art fifty thousand dollar golf stimulator similar, like the one, we see right here, but those things, I'm sure he's playing pill beach right now, those things could warp you anywhere in the world and you can play any course you want. They've gotten better and better. Okay. So that's probably why he replaced it. The point where you can put on those and it simulates putt it does. And they do that brenten head of fit learning how to put on this call, right? Yeah, they get the speed, Dan. But I think don't you think golf simulators have a place in the future of the game because of people not having time to get to the and practice and such I do. And what's interesting, if I had one at my house. My wife had never seen me. But, but. What's interesting is the practice part of the simulators, so good because they have built in track men, and it's really easy to teach on because there's so much information that pops out of that stuff. And. You know, you and I that the other day we played and, and it's first time I really spent any time on one, and it's a lot of fun. They are also positive those is you can go get a lesson in the comfort of your own home and get the exact stats all all the things you want to learn about your swing or the way the ball's moving you get it right there that simulator. So I think it's making teachers. It's making it easier for them you want. Yeah. And we read the PGA superstore been when they opened up and they got like six or seven simulate yeah. Can take lessons out there. You can test clubs and, and golf tech has the same thing. It's, it's just it's, it's a wave of the future..

"News wise today, Scott. There was a a story in and get these occasionally how technology is kind of tracking us, according to the Wall Street Journal Facebook routinely receives highly sensitive data from apps that track everything, and I'm quoting here from your heart rate to your menstrual cycle. Well, they can have both of those. Hey can have that influence and not only does the data collection happen without user's knowledge, but it even happens when apple users don't have a Facebook account. Facebook says sharing information across apps is industry. Standard practice at least eleven popular apps were found to be sending your data to Facebook. And I don't know that you have this one one called flow period. Ovulation tracker instant heart rate, HR monitor and even the real estate app realtor. So those all have the capability of sending your activity right onto Facebook. Without your knowledge. I'm going to download all of those after the show. I think that'll probably that'll work out. I didn't realize it was I think we all understand. I hope we all do when we go online. I treat it as if there are people entities technology. That knows exactly what the heck I'm doing. You know, I I I had a golf lesson. And I went over to golf tech Bill Bill over. There was looking I have the savage problem coming over the top as we call it in golf a little casting. Suddenly I started seeing videos in my social media for fixes for coming over the top, great like Helena. World. Wow. Did it? No this. I'd probably talk to Bill about that. And there's people that say if you even if you're just chatting about things in around your devices. It's listening to you. I'm starting to believe that I am too. I have a dear friend of mine who is in special services. And I said listen instead of having a meeting, why don't we just FaceTime because? Nope. Yeah. Because I know that there's a lot going on. But I'm not gonna participate do somewhere. I know is like. How pass on that? Literal. Facetime is okay, but the technological version the online FaceTime, no way, Jose. It was I apologize to our friends. Just under the weather a little bit wanna make sure you have some good radio and Glenn Beck will be back tomorrow. And tomorrow, we'll have our good friend.

"I think that's the great thing in about them. Bringing instructors that are superintendents or assistants or whatever the case may be because. Aa gives them an opportunity to get out in front of people and speak but at the the same time. You're sharing stuff that happens day in and day out and not stuff that you got out of a book that you've been teaching and I think that's what makes the difference in a a good instructor that that that's teaching and passionate about what they do and someone that's got a presentation. They've done seventy five times and they're just reading through through the through the slides again and I think that's what you know that. That's what takes classroom a boring class to class that you're actually interested in I've I've I've done my share of snooze irs and you can you can tell right away from the feedback that you're getting. Yeah it's either that or you get booked looked into the first hour after lunch and so that's that's kind of the worst two but no you if you're going to speak and do something number one you've got to be the expert because I believe me if you try and get up and do a speech on something that you're not even confident with yourself it's GonNa come across and it just doesn't work so if there's any tips for anybody out there looking to do something like that do take take the easy route and do it. Something do do a subject that you're an expert on and you have to do minimum from research and you're ready to just talk on the fly really. Yeah and the more you do it the better you. I've been learning for years how to how to speak he. Can you know you guys recording me are saying. Hey how many times did you say I'm in that And I think once you're aware of it because when you're speaking you're not aware of that stuff because you don't hear yourself talking or the other bad habits when you're standing in front of a live audience and you get your hands in your pocket or or you're constantly. Wave them around you know. Those are all distractions distractions and those are the things that you learned in in professional speech school or whatever and hey we're we're not professional speakers or whatever we're we're here to to to satisfy a need that Somebody said we want you to come in and give a speech or whatever and usually when when when. I'm asked why the person to contact me already has a list of topics that they'd like to have you come and speak on so it's A. It's a mutual agreement on. Yeah I can do that. Sure so let's talk a little bit about our industry anything you've seen progress and get better and then also you know to take it the other way do you feel. There's any any areas that were losing ground on. You know. I thought it was interesting I was. I don't know which one of the websites I was looking at the other day and there was is a picket picture of a new of all things. Jacobson cutting are at Axa Jacobson more and one of the responder says Look at those cutting units the the same ones. That's been on the the more since the one thousand nine hundred seventy s so there is something to be said about if you have a product. I'm not endorsing any any manufacturer anywhere. But that's something that you and I have talked about quite a bit in the last few years is ellen budding got it right. Yeah exactly the evolution of the cutting unit. Now I'm not so sure that the things that the manufacturer has done to the cutting units From his has helped us out and us as technicians are us as the golf industry. And what I'm meaning is we've we've gone from solid welded frames James. Two three and four piece cutting units and springs and and all kinds of inputs all all to satisfy spy and I don't know who the customer was that demanded that we have a click adjust or a notch adjust store or what is their third name for those is things bit. Sure they're convenient sure they they Have a Whiz Bang to him but they induce a whole lot more maintenance For us on our end there's a whole lot more setting up a cutting it and all that so I don't know that I'm not convinced that that the cutting unitive have gone The way that evolution that I thought it was an A.. Come back to the comment about the Jacobson cutting you so you know they. They were forced kicking and screaming to add the click adjust to their cutting units and and they went through some growing pains with. There's too so That's one thing that's just cutting units but Tractors themselves you know we've You have the whole gamut outdoor now are cutting or are tractors. The the more itself That's that's gone. The route like our automobiles have in. And we're seeing a lot more electronic fly by wire Things like that and it's really making them tougher to trouble shoot in back. There are things that we can't do do on a mower anymore. It's got to go to the dealership or a dealer has to come out and plugged his laptop into to trouble. SHOOT IT SO I. I don't know that it was all necessary to do that. I get the technological advances and whatnot but You know I'm an old old guy in in. My Superintendent is an old guy two and in his favor mower to this day is a ransom to fifty fairway mower. And that's about as basic as you could ever get getting a fairway mower and guess what it cut grass it. It cut to the height that everybody wanted and got the job done so I'm not sure if I answered the question or not but I I rambled on enough about it. No you know I I think In terms of the cutting units would agree partially with that I think got. They've tried to simplify cutting in it but in turn it's made it more susceptible to issues and that's how I would kind of characterize. Yeah it seems to me that you know. The welded frame in the essential bowl are Kinda failsafe. Simple you know. And we've gone away from the essential and we I said okay. We're just GONNA make a cutting unit perfect and we all know that that is. The case never did happen. Yeah that's still being worked on And and I think when you start taking those adjustments away and I explain this to engineer a few years ago you start taking the adjustments away from the from the top clubs it really Wanna get or even top technicians. That WANNA WANNA get their cutting units perfect. You've taken that away from them to do it because now it's trying to simplify everything. The on the other hand of this. I understand Dan the idea behind it because listen. No one's no one's finding technicians growing on trees. You know so at some point. Does it become where you don't have technicians and they need it to be simplified because you know throwing a centric bolts on there. Just just mess as people up because they don't understand it or how we're have the tools equipment uh-huh to operate and I think In terms of like tractors and such like that I think the same thing you know and you you know. When we went over to Europe we noticed that you know dealers? Did most of the work over there is that going to be a case here in the US when we don't have technicians to do the job. I mean I think you're always going to have the elite clubs. Oh have technicians. I don't doubt that but you know you start looking at the mom and pop clubs or lowering clubs and the mediocre clubs in the future and not knowing how the how the what the situation is in terms of getting qualified technicians. Is it going to make that worse. And are they trying to set themselves up so in the future. It's easier on the dealer. Well we in fact. We have a manufacturer right. Now that is that is advertising that they they they are advertising. Hey let let us take care of your maintenance needs for you. So that very well could be now where we're going nets It'll be interesting here in the next five or ten years. I mean we. We approach this issue with back in two thousand seven with all the manufacturers and the USDA USGA and PGA tour when we met at Lake City and When we met with them we brought this up and said hey ten years from now? We're we're GONNA start seeing a shortage and technicians because there isn't new ones coming in and the schools are starting to close and before you know what I mean. We've got one or two schools that are still out there. Teaching technicians missions. We've got a lot of guys retiring and then we've got no new wants to come in and fill those spots so we're getting to that point and I think the the other part of it is you start seeing a lot more golf courses just taking guys off the crew and putting them in the shop and hoping that we're going to be able to make technician out of this guy. It's a weird scenario because you've got guys that got a million and a half two million dollars worth of equipment and they put a guy off the street in the in the shop with wrenches and hope that he's going to be able to take care of it. I don't know I don't know any owner in the world that would want to do that. That has that much of an investment in something something and would take the risk that that that that puts forward without having them train which brought up earlier conversation of. Where do you see the training? Go and we're not seeing more overseeing we're seeing less of it so it'll be interesting right and and that just what you just said just seems to be the the way that we're going because the owner that some of those owners that are out there they they really haven't thought it clear through and they just assume that some somebody that knows both ends of a nine sixteenths ranch would be able to go in and take care of that million dollar fleet it it It's a nice try. The other thing is is is a lot of times we are our our own worst enemies because you can go through the the job openings. Earn the jobs that are being advertised on turf ned or whatever and you know there's a lot of that they're they're offering sixteen twenty bucks an hour most places. The minimum wage has gone up to nine or ten bucks. That's an hour so you really not offering much. And so you're you're GonNa get what you pay for Yeah you know. A good tech is is gonNA cost you a little bit of money but And it it. It just happens to be a circumstance that we've gotten ourselves into no doubt about it and you know all the golf golf itself doesn't help that situation because we've got you know less players and obviously less revenue more golf courses closing you know so. There's a lot of that that type of stuff that's going on. I think we're in a situation right now. In terms of that see more people playing off probably in scattered areas. I mean obviously being here in Orlando. We don't really see you know that that it's down that much because people come here to vacation and they play golf so So that's a great thing but in other places I'm sure it's different but I think right. Now it's okay but you know we're we're bound to see it again. See turned down again and then with the time everybody everybody the has less time available so when you go to play four or five around a golf you know how much who's got that kind of disposable time he had that attitude his really changed and there's there's a myriad of articles in all the trade magazines that address that You know golf has gotten to be a really expensive vincent not that it would ever was cheap but it's a it's an expensive sport and it it takes four or five hours out of your day and and there's a lot of talk of Different generations that have different expectations or whatever so game is going to have to evolve. Sure but it still will come back to I think about the days that When I was stationed over in England and and some of the courses that were over there and and It was just a different attitude over there. I mean they even even in our travels we go over there. It was a working man sport and it was but there was an expectation there to a guy got finished. Fill in potholes on the street in any wanted to go to the golf course on his way home and knock out nine holes in probably say a few bad words and then Go on Home National Nash. No doubt about it. And there's no doubt that the the less people that play the more expensive becomes because the supply and demand. It costs x amount of dollars to operate a golf course. If we're not getting the players we got to charge more money to get or we lower the price and we just have to close the tent. Wisdom point was was the last time you paid for a round of golf. I have actually I. I went played stream song and paid to play off the last one hundred and I think it was like one hundred and fifty dollars dollars or something like that so the last time I went and I had the prospect of having having to pay for my round and cardinal at and I looked that one holy moly. I just don't know that I would. I would do that so But there are plenty of folks like my our assistant superintendent. He lives for Goffin's good Golfer so he just got back from Arizona and played the waste management course and a couple of others and had no no no problem with paying those prices so there's there's just as many that Probably available no. I agree all right. So let's talk. Let's turn back the clock and and let's talk about it. I mean obviously talk with John Patterson in my last podcast just about this But any things you wish we would have done or could have done better any regrets and then last question on this subject would be you know where would that experience rank in in your career. You know that was a whirlwind tour for me because when when that first prospect came up and we scheduled the conference call I was. I was probably the nanny NABOBS into room. And and there's always one and it seemed to be at that time We had a website. That was golf technicians. Were were on. There was the old and still is the golf tech's website website there. Was You know thirty thirty five guys that were kind of active on that and and the prospect of formed association came up. And I'll never forget forget. I was on the phone..
